Track Name: Fashion a Mortal
Where is the light I came here to find?
I’ve been searching the back roads and highways alike
And all that I’ve learned in my heart an my mind
Is not what I thought I desired

You pried expectations from the grip of my hand
And taught me to bow when I thought I should stand
And deep down inside I know what I needed
Is what I now understand

You chose to fashion a mortal
And draw close, in the greatest reversal
That I know I don’t really know at all

I can’t live alone I know that full well
I’m learning to own all the moments I fell
All these dark places you’ve lead me to find
The light that only you shine

We make our plans; build them strong and tall
But it’s out of our hands; you hold it all
All in its time
Breathed into life
All in its time
Draw me to light
Track Name: Hope Sign
You stood on intellect, and confidence
Of rigid, fortified arguments
But in the open air your pale skin
Flushed against the light of penitence

And when confronted with the real truth
It took a decade just to get through
I don’t need you to say that
You were wrong; you want to forget
Sing all the notes out of sequence
Just come down off of your fence
Amid the entropy of night time
The stars are shaping out a hope sign

So jump the sinking ship of platitude
You sang a desperate call, a prelude
And in the morning light the chemistry
Dissolved into another mystery

Under the bright star
I find what is true, what is true
In a manger
I will run to you, run to you

All the poets and the prophets
All the dreams and the regrets
And all the scientists and outlaws
On the run back to Montreal
Doing their best to leave it behind
In the pacific where you might find
The reflection of the night sky
The stars are shaping out a hope sign
