1. The Clearcut (14:09)
Our hearts will ring hollow
in the silence of the clearcut
where our hungry ghosts stalk the scalped hills
and we'll find no sign on these slopes and fields
nor in the fate we have written
in the scars of the land

your truth is unspoken
wretchedly you climb
content to gnaw on the bones of your children
our lungs to the fumes
teeth to the grindstone
our eyes splintered in unsleeping light

your hope has unraveled
there is a warp in the word
that flies from the cleft in your tongue
sallow folds of painted rust
splint of the bone, wrack of the writ
caught in the teeth of the wheel

The earth has burned black beneath our feet
yet still beneath the coil of the withered root
there is still life in the silence
2. Passage (10:51)
If the dam were to break...
before the forest withers!
If we were to find our way...
before the rivers run dry!

Unchain the waters
Let your Northstars pierce
the wrath and the ruin
to be an axis and an anchor for the seasons
fording the currents
seeking passage
3. Weathering (10:19)
Oh solar fume, may we drift never further
and come never closer
We, the parched land aching for a drink
In the fallow dew we would have followed you
but for the rain refusing to fall
when we're cast from the shores and left to the drought
tossed in the currents of venomous thought
Eyes shut, teeth clenched
straining against the changes
scying and searching the signs of the skies
a glyph in the grass, a rune in the wood
Facing the storm within
finding the courage to breath

Souls pour molten in the crucible
Where stars flicker and die in the glint of our eyes
Strength hard won, memories lost
The waried road far from home
The long arm of spiral coiling within
To weather the storm again
To weather the storm within
4. The Crooked Trail (6:31)
5. Animis (10:38)
Ex Nihilo
In rapturous fury
Tearing us apart, stripping the flesh from the bone
Ascending through darkness
Returning to form again

Ashes rise high from this storm
Of life and death
We cry out for the death of our mother

Wolfs paw, Crows eye, Scale of the Serpent
The Center is empty
The Center is full
Spine of the mountain, twist of the river
The Center is empty
The Center is full
