Track Name: Chris King - Voyager
the pilgrims had the right idea
explore and expand
so pack your corn and leave the elders here
to set out across the land

your mother wept when she herd the plan
to set out across the sea
to leave a boy and return a man
to start a colony

when we arrived we saw a man
standing across the way
he shouted loud as he clapped his hand
he said "welcome to my land"

then we all started dancing to the sound
of the howling wind
so overjoyed from what we had found
a chance to start again

and we all sang,
we'll share the corn we'll share the land
we wont grow tired of the other man
we all started singing praise the land
hallelujah

we'll share the corn we'll share the land
we wont grow tired of the other man
we all started singing praise the land
hallelujah, hallelujah
Track Name: To Live, To Love, To Give It Away
iv'e never lived to think about
to live with love or to live without
id shout and id lie for these thoughts in my mind
are now so filled with doubt

I would never have gained from living here
to walk in the dark, to hide in fear
i saw the light, to these thoughts i was blind
but there becoming so clear

if theres anything i have learned in my day
is to live, to love and to give it away
if not for the things so deep within me
i would still be astray

love came walking outside my door
he wore boots of black and a withered hat
said iv'e things to explore
love came talking outside my door
said iv'e seen what you've done
and i'm proud of you son just like i was before

love came walking outside my door
said were not hear to stay
let it pass away like light upon the shore
love came talking outside my door
said iv'e seen what you've done
and i'm proud of you son just like i was before
Track Name: Wolf And The Moon
when the picture met the paper, my lover was dead
when my mind met my thoughts she was made up instead
of all my illusions i've created in my head
of a beautiful woman from the south
oh my woman ill always care about

one day i will find you in a land ill pursue
with the wild frontier and a river running through
my travels will be ending cause my ending is with you
oh my woman from the south
oh my woman ill always care about

love come to find me
i have been waiting since i could believe
love come back to me
make my dreams a reality

if i were a dog and you were the moon
i would be howling till i caught up to you
i'm senseless and wild but i seek what is true
the wolf spends the night with the moon
with your light beside me how could i be alone

like a son to a father
like a bird to a cage
or a traveling musician
with the world as his stage
like man who has lived to love all his days
you are my woman from the south
and i am your man you will soon care about
Track Name: Change In The Wind
oh my darling one
iv'e just come from the land i love
to find these things within me and my mind
that i still believe are there

oh my darling love
do you come from a land above
cause my thoughts have taken control over my heart
and i'd sure like to feel this love

oh tell me, wont you be, coming back around
oh tell me, wont you be, coming back around

oh the greatness in
our life blown in the wild
the crops don't grow to long
before winter takes its hold on them


oh tell me, wont you be, coming back around
wont you be coming back around
wont you be coming back around
wont you be coming back around

oh my love once
why do you run from us
my mind has lost these things i've come to find
that i still believe are here
Track Name: The Road We Take(Bonus Track)
the summer of his last july
changed his life
in a short matter of time
the shocks turned into sparks
and throughout the blocks
it put out the lights

the cries pierced through the town
that gathered a crowned
to the place where he lye
he lay there on the ground
and the words in my mouth
softly rang out
he's in your hands keep him safe tonight

jacob, jacob hallelujah

i contiusly await for a new day
for good news to hear
you uncontiously aware in your deep dark despair
he speaks soft in your ear

love..

jacob, jacob hallelujah

oh he's alive
a prayer for his life
hallelujah 2x

jacob, jacob hallelujah
Track Name: Troubled Man. Brighter Sun
by the light of the waking sun
and the darkness foreseen
it comes to lay its burdens
down on the shores of the sea

well it took the courage of a man
to seek what he's lost
to lay down in your command
to walk the road not traveled along

oh sun wont you come to find me
i feel i am lost
to shine into the dark
so i could see that light
so i could see were to walk

oh great sun of the dying day
you've come once more
to set your cares and troubles away
down on the fading shore
and forever..
