Track Name: Solitary Atoll
Dear mistress, Sea
What a terrible and beautiful creature
A temper catastrophic
Yet she beckons softly
Lost among the azure mountains
Rolling, growing, crest and trough
Brought me to this lonesome isle
A life of riches has never brought me the contentment
Of dying in the arms of my love
This solitary atoll
My eternal resting place
I find what I have searched my life for
My eden
Track Name: Keep Your Composure
Take in the moment
breathe it in
smell the tension
hear the danger
keep your composure
stand up proudly
those who stand against you will tare themselves apart
smile; show them what big teeth you have
extend your hand; show them what sharp claws you have
fear no man
Track Name: The Dead Cry Out
A history, a legacy
Of beauty and passion for life
respect of the land
and all that dwell within
you take our homes
rape our people
murder the land and all within it
you label us savages
look in the mirror, my friend
God has left you
In the name of yourself
You steal
You kill
I look into your eyes
Your soul is dead

The dead cry out for justice
The voices of those deceased
Will not be silenced
Track Name: Freedom in Spirit
Everything was improvised on this track, including lyrics.
Track Name: Stalwart
Despite the pain
Disregarding deepest sorrow
Numb
Rage and fury become me
Tears inconsolable well up
I stand as the mountain
Of stone and earth
To bear the sweet burden of life
I conceal my weakness
Track Name: My Feet Have Trod The World
My feet have seen the world
I've trod the depths of deepest seas
and walked amidst the mountain's glory
The mossy floors of ancient forests
Have graced my soles as the finest carpet
Desert sands unmerciful
have scorched my toes with fires hellacious
Calloused, my skin has become
Hardened to troubles and peace
Alas, the mightiest wall is finite
And still the briars beneath me stir my anger
Track Name: Trochilid Riddle
One sees black while the other sees red
in the necklace adorning Hummingbird's head
The man who seeks beauty spies a shining gem
To his worn and tired brother, obsidian to him
Belief or disbelief rests within you
Track Name: The Sea Consumes All
onyx clouds in the sky
gale force winds howl the evening away
shut myself alone
rain leaking through the attic ceiling
while the radio speaks impending doom
I await the flood waters washing away
all that we have built

Sea and stream well up
rising, swallowing the cities

I'm taken up above the torrent
to watch all that I knew
Swept away like castles in the tide
As hurricanes raged and oceans consumed
high above i watch and wait
until daylight breaks and waters calm
leaving only whispers of what once was
Track Name: Thinking Like A Mountain
As the voice of the wilderness disappears
The hillside withers and fades away
Only a mountain has lived long enough
To listen objectively to the howl of a wolf
Track Name: Arthrobotrys
Small shadows gather
unassuming overlooked
ignore them, they may disperse
small shadows gather
a little harder to ignore
slowing my movements
small shadows gather
I feel them digesting my skin
I am crawling on my hands and knees
small shadows gather
taking over, consuming me whole
I am as stone
Small shadows consume me
Track Name: All's Desire
There's something in death that's endeared to us all
To be born again into power and glory
The universal desire of creatures
Track Name: Archaea
no want
no glory
no greed
no war
no betrayal
no love
no hate
no pain
no pleasure
only life in pure essence
