Track Name: Eleuthera - In Winter's Wake
Snow falls silent
dark trees stand
crisp in contrast,
against winter sky.
She walks alone.
Breathes,
the woods,
the winds,
untouched.
Crisp contours await paths yet trodden,
foreseen.
In this my waking dream
I am mute.
Words would muddle this perfection,
Smear its lines,
Bring me to a place of longing.
So the song that I sing is one of silence,
One of listening.
One that my body sings while I walk unaware into unknown futures.
Sweat, breath and blood.
Heart beats and the many places where
inside meets out
These fertile edges of inner breath and cold air,
parted lips,
These thresholds are rites of passage,
the crossing of which recognizes one as fundamentally changed.

This silent dream is acted out by my tribe of one,
made manifest in the waking world of sound, shared, thus bridging our gaps,
taking one step towards the merging of worlds,
hoping for a flood.
Track Name: Experimental Choir of Montreal - Meow Meow
meow meow meow meow
Track Name: Miss Eaves - DivaPop
Miss Eaves I am a simile master
I stay on the grind so I can rhyme faster
I smell funky because I use Tom's
I get it on the cheap on Amazon.com
I got a lot of junk like a spam mail box
Spunky Punky Brewster eatin' pop rocks
Nerdy- I square like a Dave Thomas patty
I rock my hair like rasta man-natty

Diva in the kitchen Deb's real smitten
Got a lot of class like the queen of Britain
Crafty like Martha, Zen Siddhartha
Legendary like the almighty king Arthur
Wrap like a sari, classic like atari
Wild like a cheetah in a jungle safari
Kooky like Gaga, funny like haha
Erica Cain follow the Miss Eaves saga

Original wha original hay
I do everything in original way
Original wha Original oooooh
This how Miss Eaves go go go

Classic always in style like Prada
Pushin' boundaries avant garde like dada
Rap style tight like Calvin and Hobbes
I am a little crunchy like corn on the cob
Yeah I like granola crunchy with raisins
Power trip like a rent a cop tazin'
I wrecked my car 'cause I'm a bad driver
But I am good at keeping the party live-er

Diva in the kitchen Deb's real smitten
Got a lot of class like the queen of Britain
Crafty like Martha, Zen Siddhartha
Legendary like the almighty king Arthur
Wrap like a sari, classic like atari
Wild like a cheetah in a jungle safari
Kooky like Gaga, funny like haha
Erica Cain follow the Miss Eaves saga

Original wha original hay
I do everything in original way
Original wha Original oooooh
This how Miss Eaves go go go
Track Name: Feast of Spirits - Shadowfriends
the cats are singing in the alley
the moonlight is rising
their ears are filled with the sound
united in meowing

calling to the sky, it's the good fight
calling to the sky, it's the good fight

the whales are swimming in the sea
the tides are coming
their thoughts in linked in Love
with sonic flying

Chasing Shadowfriends,
I will meet you between the two Worlds
Chasing Shadowfirends
I will meet you there

Hopping from flower to flower
the bees in the corridors
running out of orbits
our pollinating friends

calling to the sky, it's the good fight
calling to the sky, it's the good fight

the snow is melting in the valley
the kids are playing
the raindrops kiss their cheeks
and on their third eyes

Chasing Shadowfriends,
it's the good fight
I will meet you there
it's the good fight
Track Name: Banana Lazuli - Luna Oscura
El cielo lleno de planetas y de estrellas
La tierra llena de semillas y de historias
Luna oscura...

Humanos llenos de sonidos de los pueblos
Humanos tienen sus lenguas
Arquitectura del alma
Luna oscura...

Ala de ave, frases de la tierra
cola de gato, frases de la tierra
grito de sapo, frases de la tierra
color de piedra, frases de la tierra
Luna oscura...

Translation into English:
The sky, filled with planets and stars
The earth, filled with seeds and stories
Dark moon...

Humans filled with the sounds of the tribes
Humans have their languages
architecture of the soul
Dark moon...

A bird's wing, a saying of the Earth
the cat's tail, a saying of the Earth
cry of the frog, a saying of the Earth
color of stone, a saying of the Earth
Dark moon...
