Track Name: centuries of stone
Centuries of Stone
(Plester, Biddulph)

On a grassy hillside
Centuries of stone
Danger waits forever,
Unknown
Stone by stone
We build ourselves a wall
So sit down beside me
And the sound
Will go all around

How do you build a home
Running away alone?
Something outside yourself
Sounding your heart out loud

Why do we run around?
Who are we spinning round
Under the stormy skies?
Why are we falling down?
Who could we be right now?
Why are we fading out?
Ahhhhhh…

Stone by stone
Around, around
Feel the walls go underground
Then yr falling
Into starry skies

Stone by stone
We build ourselves a wall
There’s something beside you
Outside yr heart and mind
Track Name: why we walk
Why We Walk
(Plester, Biddulph)

One step ahead, and one step behind,
Something neat, complete, keep the beat and never change your mind.
One step ahead and one step behind
A million stepping feet, keep the heartbeat, we walk in time.

Do do do do alleluiah
I know the sun is coming to ya
Let’s bring that rain cloud down
It’s dulling my eyes.

One day ahead and one day behind
Walking round in circles,
Through the maze
and out we climb.
One year ahead and one year behind
Staring up through puddles, we step it up and stay alive.

Do do do do alleluiah
I know the sun is coming to ya
Let’s bring that rain cloud down
It’s dulling my eyes.

Every footstep in the vein
In the city through the rain
Is that the life flow?
Is that the life flow?

One step ahead, and one step behind,
Something neat, complete, keep the beat, never change your mind.
One step ahead and one step behind
A million stepping feet keep the heartbeat, we walk in time.

Do do do do alleluiah
I know the sun is coming to ya
Let’s bring that rain cloud down
It’s dulling my eyes.
Do do do

Never change your mind
Track Name: guinevere and the blue knight errant
Guinevere and the Blue Knight Errant
(Plester, Biddulph)
(a tragic, pre-king Arthurian love story)

Who is this errant knight?
Wandering long in the woods tonight
Searching the grail
Have you tried this before, have you failed?

Blue hooded errant knight
Gallant, he rode with the maiden bright
In their hearts, they did move
But their silence has sent him to prove.

Sir, please tell me, what is your quest?
What greater foes till you pass your test?

Three blows to the head, dear
And one to the heart
All in the name of my Guinevere
My illusion…

Guinevere, the grail is in your heart

Bearing nobility
Ideals holding back what was meant to be
Coz the blue errant knight
Rode away to the quest from the light.

I watched his lofty eyes
On the horizon, into the skies
Too noble too long,
Turning my back to be strong.

Guinevere, the grail is in your heart.

Sir, please tell me what was your quest?
What better grail could pass your test?

Three blows to the head, dear,
Now one to the heart
All in the name of my/yr Guinevere,
My/Yr illusion…

mmm....
The grail was in your heart
Guinevere,
the grail was in your heart.
Track Name: snowflake induced voxflow
Snowflake Induced Voxflow
(Plester, Biddulph)

Do you fear the flow of yr life?
Do you feel the flow of yr love?
Do you feel the understanding?
Track Name: cordelia tonight
Cordelia Tonight
(Plester, Biddulph)

Nothing will come of nothing…

Heave your heart into your mouth
So young and so untender
So young and so true.

Coz I am Cordelia tonight
And you’ll hear nothing from me tonight, tonight

Nothing will come of nothing
(what can I say to drawr a line today?)
Heave your heart into your mouth
(spea' what we feel, not what we ought to say)
So young and so untender
(Wot shall I do?)
So young and so true.

Coz I am Cordelia tonight
And you’ll hear nothing from me tonight, tonight

Do do do do do ---who is the fool?
Do do do do do

(yr so young and so true)
Coz I am Cordelia tonight
And you’ll hear nothing from me tonight, tonight
tonight
Track Name: hannah and i
Hannah and I
(Plester, Biddulph)

we go strolling, hannah and i

sun set in the western sky

friends and lovers, they fall
she's collecting them all,
then she'll fly


we'll be talking, hannah and i

connecting over eastern sky
frames the world through her phone

in the city alone
 but she'll fly


happy black jeans girl with her spirit free
find a sunny new song and sing it with me
oh yes her twin stole half her heart
it’s so very lucky for all of us that
he left the best part


we are living, hannah and i

picture everything through her eye

instragramming at tea
pick the best ones and send them to me

we are singing, hannah and i

making up a song for a guy
gusto keeping the beat
coz the rhythm is all in your feet


hannah and i
happy black jeans girl
In a big new world
Track Name: a lucky patch of sun under the willow
A Lucky Patch of Sun Under the Willow
(Plester, Biddulph)

I’m home
You’re near
I found a treasure under here
So deep
So dear
Oh little light shine over here

The willow tree
Will shelter me
The sun we’ll see
When we get there

Drift through the reeds
Stop by the weeds
We’ll know the seeds
When we get there

If we row to the end of the river
Will we pass on by our favorite willow tree?
If we row to the end of the river
What could we be?
What could we see?
Could we see a little farther
Or any better?
But we’ll stop before we get there

A patch of sun, a lucky patch of sun
Under the willow
Track Name: occupy a tent
Occupy a Tent
(Plester, Biddulph)

[say no to GMOs]
Solidarity
One soul living in a tent
Solidarity
One man on the 17th floor
What we want-
We are where you are
We are with ya.

Come on down
Come down, look me in the eye
Look me in the eye
Come down, we can find out why
Come around-
We are where you are
We are with ya.

To eye to eye to eye
To eye to eye to eye
We can always
Work things out one by one

Do do do do do do ….
Do do do do do do ….
When the mass can become a machine
It’s a shame anyway.
When machines can become human beings
We’re the same anyway.

Do do do ….. we are all around
Do do do ….. we are on the ground

We are all around
We are we are all around
We are on the ground
We are we are on the ground
We are on
We are where you are
We are with ya

We are all around
We are we are all around
We are on the ground
We are we are on the ground
We are on
We are where you are-
Utopia.
Track Name: little sprouts
Little Sprouts
(Plester, Biddulph)

Great plans for the great plains
Under hazy skies
Roll them up and move them along
Open the door as I realize…
Get me out of the car now
And walk a golden blur
Slow it down to a wandering pace
You’ll find the distance is the cure.

It’s a long long road out there-
and I might need to stay
Ahhhh wah oh
I’ll find a place along the way
On the solid ground, leave me behind
I need to breathe again, so leave me behind.

I’ll wake up in the sunshine
To a field of wheat
Turn around, and I’ll walk to the barn
Little sprouts are at my feet.

It’s a long long road out there-
and I might need to stay
Ahhhh wah oh
I’ll find a place along the way
On the solid ground, leave me behind
I need to breathe again, so leave me behind.

Ahhhh….
Leave me behind on my farm with my little sprouts, and then go away.
Leave me behind on my farm in my field of wheat, but don’t you want to stay?
Ahhhh….
Track Name: droplet
Droplet
(Plester, Biddulph)

so how do you know that 
yr heart is in tow
and yr feeling 
is all what it seems?

well
you flow like water
until yr farther than
what you thought it could be

Slowly, one single droplet will flow on down
Gathering speed as I run over rocks
In the soothing sound.
Flying over the edge now I’m all alone
Unexpected high, suddenly thrust in the sky
At the waterfall.

Feel like I’m rain again
Feel like I’m rain again

Eventually will I come back to these falls?
Could be centuries before I can make it at all.

Onward, we’re throwing down on the rocks below
Thousands of droplets coming together
Make the water flow.

Feel like I’m rain again
Feel like I’m rain again
(to the ocean
to the clouds
back to rain
I will cycle round)

Maybe someday I’ll join a flash flood
Or travel north and float down all snowy and cold

so how do you know that 
yr heart is in tow
and yr feeling 
is all what it seems?

well
you flow like water
until yr farther than
what you thought it could be

so how do you know
that yr life will unfold
and yr hope
will untangle yr dreams?

well
you flow like water
until yr farther than
what you thought it could be

feel like i'm flowing to feel
Track Name: juniper tree
Under the Juniper Tree
(Plester, Biddulph)

Walk through springtime
Can we get to universe one?
We are somewhere
On the other side of the sun
We are somewhere
On an island far away
We'll find something today

Under the juniper tree
Be what you want to be

Though the desert
Searching for some shade
Our own little corner we made
In universe two
oooooo
It's all we knew
Until we know the price
I would rather be
looking through the leaves
down at someone nice

ahhh
Climb up the juniper tree
eee eee eee
Be what you want to be
ooo ooo ooo
Twist me a happy gene
ahhh
Be what yr gonna be
ohhh

Long road back now
We're on this side of the sun
Reflect on the water
Universe one ooo ooo
Here we come ooo ooo
Until we know how soon
I would rather be
singing our new tune
gazing at the moon

Come along with me
Climb up the juniper tree
eee eee eee
Be what you want to be
ooo ooo ooo
Twist me a happy gene
eee or ahhh
Under the juniper tree

Track Name: september please come slow
September Please Come Slow
(Plester, Biddulph)

If you feel, you feel, you feel, you feel yr love and energy
If you feel, you feel, you feel your love
And you know, you know, you see the train wreck that your life could be

When you know, you know, you know, you hear where different voices go
Here you are Septemba, please come slow

Laze around, around, around, around, the sun is going down

The summer glow still shines, September
Cos it’s already in your mind

So close your eyes and breathe it all in
The winter’s coming and you are falling in dark and alone but still alive
