Track Name: King With No Throne
king with no throne

i am a king with no throne
with no land of my own.
once loved a woman whose face i forgot
now it's a name i love.

i wander these forests of concrete with blood on my hands.
i am a stranger
i am a stranger in my own land
in my own land.

summer,
where did you go?
all the light that i have known?
i keep secrets
to keep you safe
and warm.

september's pale light i beg you
come, shine on my skin.
i'm spending my last days of summer, wondering
how the rain fell

oh my friend,
my friend
i drank from the well.
Track Name: Rostock / Show Me Where You Hide Your Longing
rostock/show me where you hide your longing

i found a place to live in
bowed to the dream of home.
home's an illusion.
home's an illusion.

i found someone to love.
loved him fiercely but it wasn't enough.
love's an illusion.
love's an illusion.

but i still say:
show me where you hide your longing.

a late snow hits the sea
my friend i've been weary all day.
i've been told life's an illusion.
life's an illusion.

but i'll always say:
show me where you hide your longing.

i was blind.
i've been blinded by illusion.

so, hold my hand till dawn.
maybe it's me that you long for
and a winter's sun may be risin'.
a winter's sun my be risin'.

so, beware my friend.
'cause you know in the end
we've been blinded.
Track Name: I'm A Bird Now
i'm a bird now

i'm a bird now
i carve songs
out of my bones.

someone hurt you
you
won't know how.
Track Name: Wish You Were A Hunter
wish you were a hunter

wish you were a hunter
wild.
fierce and reckless killer
with a tight grip to my thighs.

stab me with a dagger,
watch me in my pain.
fever in my eyes,
cold blood in your veins.

i would eat my heart out,
throw my soul away,
to be right what you aim for,
to be a hunter's game.

oh, my.

marry me a churchman
kind.
and i'll raise those kids though knowing
all beauty must die.

sweet breath when they're sleepin',
smell of summer skin.
sweet mary when they're wheepin',
sweet songs when they sin.

once i got lost in wild waters,
that's where my soul got stained.
feeling when feeling's unspoken,
words when words are in vain.

oh, my.
Track Name: It's The Wind
it's the wind

love
stood on your doorstep and told you
you weren't enough.
surely, you're a hunter
but not to me.

someday
i'll see your face in the window
of some café.
you should have learned
what to leave and what to burn.

when this ship of mine
sank before its time.
who stood by?

now i live in the belly of a whale.
lit by lonely hopes.
who said the tide would turn
at your choice.

it's the wind i serve, my dear.
i don't believe true love is set in fear.

when this ship of mine
sank before its time.
who stood by?

i serve the wind in my face,
blessed by a song you knew too, once.
proud to bear nobody's name.
oh no,
i'll be alone.
