about

Welcome Home, to a place we call The Wild Land. This is where your heart resides; where your mind surrenders to the wolf inside; where nothing is tame and everything fiercely defends the real; where the edge is just a step away and you are grateful for its enlivening presence. This is where we live. We invite you to come inside and stay for as long as you like. Come on Home with me.

Track Name: Braver & Stronger
You are braver and stronger than me
You throw back the door see wolf prints in the snow, say
The free have been here and gone
Then you step aside smiling and watch me stride into the storm

I’m walking ‘til I’m home
Stead, though tired I am not alone

We choose to be alone when it seems we’re most weak
When the tame run to save they’ll find wolves sleeping warming our
Feet, speak to ground, lead to heart
Now you hold me so close ‘cos you know what I’ve seen in the dark

I’m walking ‘til I’m home
Stead, though tired I am not alone

Brew tea on the back porch, I don’t need more than this
Our garden in spring and the birds know your name on my
Lips, sing your storm a lullaby
Now there’s nothing to do so I lay down and kiss you goodnight
Track Name: Beautiful
We walked through wood and through sunlight
The rivers chuckled at our whispered words
Fruit fell sticky from our fingers
I lost my last chance not to fall in love with you

What an entropic thing
Awaken from a nightmare
You are beside me, it’s
Beautiful

You smell like the ocean, of salt and freedom
And your name is like a wave
Crashing through until it breaks
I lose my last chance not to fall in love with you

What an entropic thing
Awaken from a nightmare
You are beside me, it’s
Beautiful
Track Name: Seasons
She was the white witch of the north
And the wind came to her call
Shook my heart loose
Like the leaves in fall

She was the white witch of the north
It didn’t matter to me at all
No it didn’t matter
To me at all

Now I wake up singing in the morning
And I wake up singing in the dawn
I wake up singing in the dawn

You
You are all holy
You are all holy
You are all holy
Every season has its place
And every season has its place
And yes it hurts to be alive
But then you know that you’re alive
Every tree is in the ground
And every bird up in the sky
And every human deep in love
Oh, you are all holy
You are all holy
You are all holy
You are all holy

He was the dark boy from the south
And the words poured forth from his mouth
Like the sun and honey from his mouth
He was the dark boy from the south
And he loved her
Track Name: Thinking Of A Starfish
If I could keep it simple every single day
I know the world would surely help to me to wash it all away

So my products are organic and healthy for the planet
But you’re one of seven billion, you might as well just can it

No, I’m thinking of a starfish and the word appreciation
Sometimes the biggest difference is to throw one in the ocean

Well it seems you have a good point so I will no further argue
Let’s hope that every starfish has an angel just like you
Track Name: Home
Growing up was easy, taking life slowly
Ocean and mountain were my friends
I was in no hurry, shoes were never near me
Barefoot and naked in the rain

I know you well
I know you well
I know you well
Home x3

I’ve lived in the city, city all around me
No one was naked in the rain
Seemed as though the people compounded all their troubles
Compressed them into concrete and to pain

I see you crying
People walk by it doesn’t make much sense to me
I see you crying
Why don’t you try to come on home with me

Come on
Home

Everyone who meets me, knows I’m from the country
I am proud of everything that I have learned
And everywhere I travel, I love all those people
Who get naked and crazy in the rain

I know you well
I know you well
I know you well
Home, Home
Come on
Home
Track Name: Barefoot Romance
Build a home with me
Populate it with everything we need
All those books we both love to read

If you will be my pen I’ll be your page
Together we’ll fill up that empty space
With flowers blooming gently in the breeze
You can be the flowers, I’ll be the breeze

I guess what I’m trying to say is
Will you be my person, my best friend
The two of us writing stories
Of a barefoot romance ‘til the end

If you will be my switch, I’ll be your light
You can turn me on, I got nothing to hide
If you will be my door, I’ll be your room
So open up, come inside

I guess what I’m trying to say is
Will you be my person, my best friend
The two of us writing stories
Of a barefoot romance ‘til the end

If I will be your key will you be my chest
And hold close everything I hold sacred
If you will be my lungs I’ll be your air
You can breathe me in, now you know I care

I guess what I’m trying to say is
Will you be my person, my best friend
The two of us writing stories
Of a barefoot romance ‘til the end

Be my pack and I’ll be your wolf
Run fierce with you through the wildest woods
On fire we’ll heat the moon ‘til it ignites
Burns fierce and wild…for love’s delight
Track Name: Learn To Pray
Hello my dark days
My fountains pouring night
This personal horror story
And I will be just fine

It’s just how I learn
To pray

When you try to fix me
Every time I cry
You leave me a pauper
Penniless and prone to fight

It’s just how I learn
This is how I learn
It’s just how I learn
To pray

Sit here with myself
Perfect solitude
To bring myself back home
I cooked myself a bowl of soup

It’s just how I learn
This is how I learn
It’s just how I learn
To pray

Vivid is me
I’m an orchid after the rain
I am pregnant and resplendent
I’m tameless and I’m wise

With every step I take
And every move I make
With every step I take
I’m following the wild line
Track Name: Brother Joshie
Keep on brother it’s all I can say
You know the way, you know the way
Wit up brother, wait for us
I will walk beside you with our sister that’s enough

Oh brother, brother look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother, brother you and me
We keep it simple
Brother Joshie

Shine on brother where you are
Know that you light me up even when you shine from far
I hug every sunrise ‘cos I know
It’s you who warmed it up for me just a little while ago

Oh brother, brother look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother, brother you and me
We keep it simple
Brother Joshie

You were there when it was dark
Talking until dawn or sleep stole words
And stilled out muffled laughs
We kept it simple
Brother Joshie

Storytellers all we live with flair
it runs within our blood from the gypsies we descent
This pirate minstrel family
Yes we are all dreamers but every truth was once a dream
Yes we are all dreamers but every truth was once a dream
Yes we are all dreamers
Yes, we are all dreamers

Oh brother, brother look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother, brother you and me
We keep it simple
Brother Joshie
Brother Joshie
Brother Joshie
Track Name: You Will Take...Everything
You expected me to agree
I see you thought I’d comply
‘Cos you’ve compiled your facts
Through years of careful research
The facts should always comply
They never lie

You fake every dance
Of every dream the real can see
You rearrange, ‘til the suit fits but not me

You will take
You will take
Everything
Everything

There’s nothing here to say
Except I don’t see things your way
‘Cos what you say’s got no sense
There’s nothing like a heart I can feel beating in this
Nothing like a heart at all…it’s a mechanical jaw
It’s eating up everything I see
There’s nothing left here but the thought of me

You will take
You will take
Everything
Everything

Don’t try
Don’t you even try
Don’t try
I’m right here
Track Name: Puzzle Pieces
Has it all been decided
Before we begin
If it’s all been decided
Where do I fit in

I’m not so sure I believe that
I’m not so sure I believe
I’m not so sure I believe that
I fit in

So I rise up and look down from an eagle-eye view
I watch all you people, you’re like pieces of a puzzle
This I ponder
And it seems it’s all connected and this mosaic is a patchwork sea
And if it’s all connected a shifting mosaic on a patchwork sea

We are all puzzle pieces
We are all puzzles
We are all puzzle pieces
We are all trying to fit in

Now don’t be alarmed
I’m not I’m listening…and observing
But don’t be alarmed
I’m not I’m listening, I’m always listening now, listening now
Don’t be alarmed, no I’m listening

I glide through the clouds, down
I’m asking no questions
As I slip into my place I know I don’t
Need all of the answer right now

‘Cos we are all puzzle pieces
We are all puzzles
We are all puzzle pieces
We are all puzzles
We are all learning to fit in
Track Name: Lucid Daydream Sea Song
Hold fast to me dear as I lie fast asleep
We hold fast to the mast and sink to the deep
The world passes by in aquatic displays
See the fish in their curious ways

This may just be my lucid daydream sea song

Though we sail under seas I ask not for despair
Every adventure has a price we must pay
Seems we’ve sunk down as the others grew up
Now our ceiling’s their floor and I praise our good fortune

I look up at the night sky, you tell stories to me
Of all that was when air we breathed
When we walked over land though we dreamed
Under sea

This may just be my lucid daydream sea song
Now my best friend’s a sea urchin of bright shiny green
Apart, that is, from you girl you know what I mean
At last in love we left all the lost ones behind
I breathe in the green I see reflect in your eyes

I look up at the night sky, you tell stories to me
Of all that was when air we breathed
When we walked over land though we dreamed
Under sea

On shipwrecks below are the places we grow
Delicate vines, see them sway to and fro
Yes, life is fine deep in the brine
The salt on my tongue lets me know you are mine

I look up at the night sky, you tell stories to me
Of all that was when air we breathed
When we walked over land though we dreamed
Oh we dream
Under sea

This may just be my lucid daydream sea song
This may just be my lucid daydream sea song
