Track Name: Mind's a river
Mind's a river,
Mine is dammed by the thoughts of a world,
With a heart left to endeavor,
I won't let my thoughts unfurl too soon,
For in time she might fall in too

Whispering winter,
Falls away in the light of the sun,
And in this light I am better,
I resist my urge to run away,
I'd like to say, 'in this light I'll find my way'

Help me find my way,
Serene light of day...
Track Name: Sweep me
Holy river sweep me from this stone,
For our complacence binds us to the known,
And we should embrace every heart sing, any song,
For we can be One mind as anyone,

And maybe I'm a little ambitious,
Maybe it cannot be done

But what else is life for,
If we cannot live in togetherness with each other,
In the flow,
I long for a time when we share in a common vision,
I long for a time when you'll whisper into my ear,
That the fear is gone...

Can't you hear the sigh of mother earth?
Given that she's the One who gave us birth,
Maybe we should save her from the ego,
By reconnecting with her soul

And maybe I'm a little ambitious,
And even though I may have heard her call,
All I know is I know nothing at all...
Track Name: Three miles
I'm calling to Her from the shore,
I hear a distant reply,
Coming from the horizon

She's been out of sight all of my life,
And all that stands between us is a line,
A line three miles wide,
And an approaching tide,
Brings a reddening sky

And I will build a boat to sail along the line,
I have spent too long waiting on the side,
The night is setting in but soon I will be gone,
With the birds in the morning light,
OM

And OH! My friend I can hear you,
Your voice erodes all my fear,
And OH! lady can you hear me too?
You know that I'll always be here,
Standing on the shore,
Finding wood for an Oar,

And I've seen many a boat go under over time,
But I have spent too long waiting on the side,
The night is setting in but soon I will be gone,
On a voyage of three miles,

I've been looking for another answer,
So I'm calling to her...
Track Name: Melt
Broken words,
Were all that I heard at first,
Then my heart became untethered,
And harmony began to come,
To steal me away from what I had done
To take me back to the ocean,

These moments are fleeting,
I always seem to fall right back,
Into a tired and broken pattern,
I wanna be there with you,
I wanna see right through,
To feel the wheels in motion,

I can be the river,
If you would just let me go,
I can be the river,
I can be the flow,
Above as below

I feel like I am sleeping,
Drifting into nothing much,
Taken by the rivers that we are sailing,
Sometimes the vision is clear,
Sometime it is shrouded in fear,
I've gotta let go of emotion

I can be the river,
If you would just let me go,
I can be the river,
I can be the flow
