Lyrics for Of Tide and Trail

Another Side of the Sky

It’s strange and I’ll see you there, on the other side of the sky,
As we flow to who knows where, with love in our eyes

So above, the undreamed of, is brought to bear, we fall from air

Betrayed, I am drawn to be, high moors far from you,
Our fate is sealed and we will burn by the truth

So below, as time outgrows, a call to prayer, we rise aware

It’s strange, deranged, in flames, we change


You'll All Get What's Coming To You

Line right up and lay right down, your heads will fall, roll and make no sound,
And I don’t care much now for you

I know you well your path’s well trod, “I can’t do anything, I’m just doing my job”
And I can see straight through you

You’ll all get what’s coming to you

You’re blind and fucked and you can’t tell, your duty is to us and to yourselves,
And I don’t care much now for you

Living ain’t worth this lot, your mind is now ours to do with as we want,
And I can see straight through you

You’ll all get what’s coming to you


She Told Me How To Love Her

Do you know where you came from? Does your life have meaning anymore?
Can you tell what to do here? Is your life only being to endure?

They say the mist will be clearing, all in good time,
But I can’t wait to be leaving, cos this world’s just not right,

You can’t feel a connection, and your life you can’t understand for sure,
Where is it that you came from, the centuries have dispossessed us all,

But do you know there’s a feeling, deep in your mind,
Just got to find how to get there, and this world will feel right,

Oceans of the other, she told me how to love her

Is your heart truly burning? Have you found the hidden meaning to it all?
There’s no place in your crying, you’ve learnt that lesson from before

So you know what to do here, settle into time,
Of the winds and the seasons, don’t hurry you’ll be fine

Oceans of the other, she told me how to love her

I Live
 
We tend the spark, it burns so fast,
One thing I’ve learned, is nothing lasts, but

I live

We search the skies, from upright stones,
And our final dance, we dance alone, and

I live

Isn’t life wonderful?


Cries

Oh how those distant cries, call you out of your slumber,
Oh how those long lived cries, call you out of your slumber,
Look there away up away, Look there away up away,
We lost our way up away, look there away,

Oh how the distant call, a way
Oh how the distant soul, tirades
Oh when I look at you I see me,
Oh you’re my fruit so strange I cannot believe,
Oh I hear that distant call, away

And I hear your cries, in every sound that I ever make,
And I’ll stay by your side, till that day, that wave it breaks

Cos I made you, I played you, and I love you more than I’ll ever know,

Oh what is mine is more than I can see,
Oh we’re the same in blood no boundaries
Oh I hear that distant call, away


And better I go back now, cos my baby’s crying her eyes out

And I hear your cries, in ever sound I ever make,
And I’ll stay by your side, till that day,  that wave it breaks

My Dear

My dear, I fly,
Through our love , in this life

My dear, I try,
In our love , in this life,

The longer we know, the further every time we go,
The farther we call, is this life even ours at all?

My dear, I’d die,
For our love, in this life


My Child

As hard as we try, as much as we own,
We give our reasons why we won’t be thrown
To the wind, Far up above,
It brings us ever closer to our love, my child,

My child, when you leave me, so much I could not see,
My child, how I write, when I leave you, say don’t you forget truth 
My child

The waking of time is here for us now, Onwards and upwards and forging through mire,
But we shout we are strong, full face to the wind,
Arms to the heavens and hearts contented to sing,
My child

My child, when you leave me, so much I could not see,
My child, how I write, when I leave you, say don’t you forget truth 
My child


Under Your Spell

Flying through heaven and hell,
To choose the light from the darkness we dwell,

Time has flown through the frame,
From now till never, forever we gain

Change is our chance to grow,
New terrains on us bestow

Who am I? I cannot tell
May I remain under you spell


Days Even Years

There is one thing, that we’re sure of,
And it’s coming now to all of us
Days even years from now , our thoughts they will be read,
Days even years , our bodies will be dead,

I’m not leaving, I’m not staying,
I’m perceiving now we’re waking up,

Days even years from now , our thoughts they will be read,
Days even years , our bodies will be dead,

And when I fall, I will run,
Run by your side, to the sun

Now I’m wondering, where we’re going,
Does our future lie in our knowing?

Days even years from now , our thoughts they will be read,
Days even years , our bodies will be dead,

And when I fall, I will run,
Run by your side, to the sun

Feet In The Sky, Head In The Stars

The tide is all that we need, to wind out the plunder and greed
I traipse and trail and rave and spin, back to where we all begin,

You with wondrous eyes, the further all that we try,
To face the waves with stares and grace, to shred the time to end the chase

Listen out through the skies, we’re leaving whichever we try,
Oh my life has been so long, oh my time has been so long,
The tide it pulls forever on, back to where we all belong
