Track Name: Jar of Tears
Lay my soul down by the river
beneath the willow tree
And I know
I know I’ll never cry again
But I don’t know
I don’t know who’ll dry your tears, my friend

Deep in dark waters
In a jar of tears
I’ve buried all my fears
And I know
I know I should have fought again
But I don’t know
I don’t know how to ease the pain

Uh, from this storm I fled
can’t get it out of my head
Uh, from this storm I fled
can’t get it out of my head

And I know
I know I’ll never cry again
But I don’t know
I don’t know who’ll dry your tears, my friend
Who’ll dry your tears?
Track Name: The Cocoon
One by one will wane
Layer by layer
Woven into the cocoon

With steady hands
the weaver chooses strings

Fingers running, running through strands
Each humming its own tune
Dancing over palms

One by one will wane
Layer by layer
Woven into the cocoon

Like water
carving through stone

The weaver knows no time
Its passing leaving no mark
Running through strands

Until the yarn
has been spun

Twist and turning the course of fate
A human’s everlasting play
Sway to the sound of life
Track Name: One
From the innermost depths I hail
Pushing through dark soil and stone
Until I reach the surface
where I start my climb

Unfold, blossom, lignify
Turn to rock, be water and wind

I am the tide
I am everything
and everything is one

Into a sea of sand
I dive and I rise and sink
Storming over hills and fields

Destroy, wither, rot
Untie, dissolve and corrode

I am the orbit
I am everything
and everything is one

View it all
Grow and tear it down
Surrender to the calm
Remove thoughts
Abandon speech

I am the grain
I am everything
and everything is one
Track Name: Hide and Seek
Peering through a thicket of leaves
The hunter lingers in the shadows
Awaiting his turn

Hide and seek
Slip away into the woods
Hide and seek
Play the game of good and evil

Hide and seek
Take cover where you cannot be found
Hide and seek

Whispers rushing through the trees
The wind sends his warning
And it all begins

Hide and seek
Slip away into the woods
Hide and seek
Play the game of good and evil

Hide and seek
Take cover where you cannot be found
Hide and seek

Hide and seek
Hide and seek
Play the game
Hide and seek

Hide and seek
Slip away into the woods
Hide and seek
Play the game of good and evil

Hide and seek
Take cover where you cannot be found
Hide and seek
Track Name: Lady Lavender
Air vibrating in the summer heat
Filled with the rich scents of nature
carried by the wind

And she wanders along winding roads
A lady clad in purple and gold

Lady Lavender
Her tale is told far and near
Of a scent so sweet
A lady so dear
A lady so dear

Follow the lavender fields
They guide the lost children
to their true home

And the crickets sing their song
as the lady walks on

Lady Lavender
Swaying in the sun
caressing the ground
To raise a scent
All-encompassing

As the lady walks on

Lady Lavender
Her tale is told far and near
Of a scent so sweet

A lady so dear
Lady Lavender
