Track Name: Time Of Spirits (Halloween Song)
Felt a hand upon my shoulder
archaic lover of a soldier
the time of spirits nigh, they call out in the night
Translucent specters in an Chilling light

Cold is here, winter near
Take time to honor all the souls who you hold dear
Why do we leave the comfort of our homes?
Out into the dead of night in costumes we shall roam

Light is leaving fast
The chill will leave us least.

I see you ghostly, reflected in the pane
I have to wonder about all your life’s pain
Keeps me stirring into the dead of night
how can you stand to live life with your blight?

Light is leaving fast
Spirits of the past
To leave us all aghast
The chill will leave us last

The light is gone
darkness anon.
Track Name: Perseid
Can one truly traverse their troubles here?
Jump into the wilderness, like a deer
We have bees buzz beneath our feet on the green
As the lazy sun reduces the lake’s sheen
Lie with me as the light recesses
Relax into the night sky’s caresses

Perseid, Perseid, cross the sky like herringbone
Streaks that lie across Orion’s limb
Perseid, Perseid, remnants leave a fiery tail
Watch the stars and keep the lanterns dim

Caravans on the dusty road,
Settle where the water’s flowed
And the children play at the reservoir’s edge
And back to camp, exhausted, they dredge
Hush now the sun’s begun to fall,
And soon enough the stars will brighten all

Perseid, Perseid, cross the sky like herringbone
Streaks that lie across Orion’s limb
Perseid, Perseid, remnants leave a fiery tail
Watch the stars and keep the lanterns dim
Track Name: Spirits Of The Storms
Spirits of the storms pass by
Please spirits hear my cry
Could you leave the sky?
So I may see the sun shine

These storms are throwing off this weathered eye
Returning my bones from a bitter dry
Back to land I must fly
To kiss my true love one sweet goodbye

Lovely, calm down
Lovely, calm down
In the morning, I’ll be heading out

Summer, Come back from whence you came
Fill our hearts with happiness again
It isn’t like you to fill the skies with rain
To turn this field to a flood plain

Will you rend us right with your windy warmth?
Not scour us with cold from an icy north
Will you keep us warm for all it’s worth?
Give us a pleasant day when I reach the shore

Lovely, calm down
Lovely, calm down
In the morning, I’ll be heading out
Track Name: Keep The Doors Open
You said as a threat when I was younger,
and you said as a threat that when I get old 
there’d be a time that you’d no longer be by my side  
Now a threat is a threat, but I always knew
if you weren’t by my side then we’d be blue
but now it seems theres nothing to change that tide

And now you travel away

Search for truth in the face of lies
You got that degree to prove you’re wise
don’t let them keep you from your dreams
Pack up and go, you know I’ll be fine
There’s a route to you on some bus line
It’s really not as far as it seems

you know there never was a time that I wished you away
and I regret every time that I went my way
Now you’re across country, in the heart of the states
In a different land, trying to gain control of fate

Keep the doors open, so I may come home anew
Keep the doors open, so I may come home to you 
Keep the doors open, so I may come home

for the first time.
Track Name: Dear Constantine
Out in the snow on the senate square in December
Before the winter palace we stand 3000 strong
Against nicholas’ forces—9000 members
they tried to negotiate, but they were wrong

Dear Constantine, why did you leave?
We stand out here on the square wishing you were king
Left our cause, left our country for love with a girl
Out here on the square in December watching the world unfurl

They opened fire upon our group, ripping through our ranks
We yelled, “Scatter!”—breaking form and slipping on thin ice
A cannonade. grapeshot. fire on every flank
For a liberal world this was the price

Dear Constantine, why did you leave?
We stand out here on the square wishing you were king
Left our cause, left our country for love with a girl
Out here on the square in December watching the world unfurl

Where will we go?
With this price upon our heads
Exiled into the cold
By a rule that wants us dead

Dear Constantine, why did you leave?
We stand out here on the square wishing you were king
Left our cause, left our country for love with a girl
Out here on the square in December watching the world unfurl
