Track Name: Snow Bird
in winter we are sober we are deathly afraid
of the mourning that is coming when the ground melts away

we are young and so afraid
and we don't know if we'll make it

in summer we are flighty and we find ourselves here
in the northern part of cities and the weather hot and clear

we are bold; we've traveled so far
but we don't know how we got there

except to fly away, spread our little wings
and fly away from sound in the dark

we may be young in appearance
but these bones are old in spirit
carry us home, please take us home
Track Name: Jet Stream
breathing in this poison air
I've got everything I want
my freedom is my only friend
I've sacrificed everything else

keeping my chin up my head held high
I close my eyes and fall
A stone through sun-scorched sky
with no control no fault nothing at all

Jet stream carry me away
I feel so wrong without your touch
Jet stream take me to my place
in the sky in the sun

tumbling through the air I am
carefree as a child again
I've got no parachute no plans to land
the wind whispers my name
Track Name: Dynamic Soaring
let the tide wash over me
it has changed so quickly
and it's eroding you and me
the salt, the sea

I arrived here on the wings
of a dying dream
and upon waking I can see
it is gone

It looks as though you're walking on
the water but you're not
the jetty holds you up above
the waves won't swallow you up

in my mind you'll always be
some kind of supernatural being
but in reality it's clear
you are not

you will know us by the smell of salt,
the sounds of what we've lost
the songs lamenting what went wrong
and all the thoughts that we can't stop

dynamic soaring's for the free
and the unencumbered
but from this vantage I can see
you are not
