Track Name: Understanding
The proud and the pious marching
For religion or their own name
They cry for fear's destruction
But I'm trembling all the same

My brother is in the gutter and
My sister is in the news
The silent are neglected and
The loudest are abused

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
I hope you're listening

I see the banners waving
As the 'just' take up the cause
Behind the silver curtain I can hear
The devil sharpen claws

The crowd starts to gather and
Emotion's running high
I hear the swords drawing
I can see it in their eyes

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
I hope you're listening

I hope you're listening
All my friends listening
All my enemies listening
All the sinners listening
All so called righteous listening
All politicians listening
All the beggars listening
Is anyone listening?

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
I hope you're listening

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
Is anyone listening?
Track Name: Terribly Near
The hours turn and
Our time is paid in tears
The constant noise won't
Silence all my fears
So I left my home
A ringing in my ears
When the noise dies down I find
You're already here

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song
How good to be made
So small

In the cool of the trees
Shaded from the light
Gnarled limbs grow long
On every side
Then sheer and quick
I am at the edge
The land opens wide and
I am at the edge

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song
How good to be made
So small

You go before me
A glimmer in your eye
You speak in gems
Your silence loud and bright
Oh hallowed, you
Breathe the depths of me
Your bow is on
My lowest strings

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song

The earth in song

And you are so terribly near
You're pressing in like
I've never known
I behold the earth in song
How good to be made
So small

How good to be made
So small
Track Name: In Love With the Dark
All this delusion
Has got me confused
What is reason
What is the ruse
Don't give me an answer
Only your view
I'll bend it and twist it
Then hand you a noose

'Cause I'm in love with the dark
I'm in love
I'm in love with the dark
I'm in love

I give the impression
That I do what's right
But I won't deliver
Try as I might
I won't ask for patience
Or time to explain
I've made my decision
My justice is plain

'Cause I'm in love with the dark
I'm in love
I'm in love with the dark
I'm in love

Oh I'm in love with the dark
I'm in love
I'm in love with the dark
I'm in love

Whether kindness or curse
Is not understood
But my words are my axes and
I've sharpened them good

I'm in love with the dark
Though I promise you light
I'll bid you be well then
I'll bury you right
Track Name: Oh Christ, Oh Holiday
Warm days are a memory
The blushing trees take of their clothes
They're waiting patiently
For a blanket, for whitest robes

The sun goes early to its rest
The eager moon is soon to shine
In the cold the stars are bold and bright and
Coming dawn takes its time

Oh snow fall steady
Oh come, white and clean
Let the hush cover everything
Give our lungs room to breath
Give our lungs room to breath

The streets are dressed in red and gold
Oh they've been waiting all year long
The air takes on a kind of sheen
It's hummin' familiar songs

Home is home all the more
With a fire and the whole family
It's a witness to the tales of yore
And all the Christmases we hope to see

Oh snow fall steady
Oh come, white and clean
Let the hush cover everything
Give our lungs room to breath

Oh snow fall steady
Oh come, white and clean
Let the hush cover everything
Give our lungs room to breath

Glad tidings, on the way
Let all our hearts draw near
Oh Christ, oh holiday
Bring light and hope and cheer

Glad tidings, on the way
Let all our hearts draw near
Oh Christ, oh holiday
Bring light and hope and cheer

Bring light and hope and cheer
