First The Rain begins / And the quiet it settles in / And it’s awesome… / And it covers everything / And then The Rain rains more / And then a knock at the door / Says “you lost em”… / Thin old face, come in. / And it rains for a seventh day He takes my hand in his / His face an unsmiling grin / And it falls on… / …falls on everyone / I bind my day to Him, / I feel my time growing thin / And I’ve lost em… / I’m the colour of The Rain. / And it rains for a seventh day / And it rains and the fiddlers play, Singing all the way See the… / See the grey stones / Green and grey stone, then the way home / Hear the ship’s groan, then the wind’s poem: “Find a way home! Seize a way home! Haul a way home! / Seize a way home find a way home / Then the way home finds us finds us finds us...” Oh…The Rain, The Rain, The Rain Then the rains roll in / Water it fills our homes and he steps in, / And we’ve lost em… / In the colour and The Rain, / No time and no name And when my rains roll in / He’ll open the door but I’ll walk in / Til I’ve lost em… / I’m the colour and The Rain, one time in His name And it rains for a seventh day / And it rains and it rains and it rains and the fiddlers play Singing all the way, / Singing all the way, / Singing all the way Oh…

On the ground / In great silence, in great sound / In great footsteps on the ground / Ask your voices where they’re found, / In the forest, all around In your sound… Giant voices, tiny town / Waves keep breaking on the Sound / Ask your sister where she’s found, / She’ll say “waiting on the ground” In your sound... On the ground /  Ohhh In those days, lost in mind, lost in thought, left behind / Take an average house, float into the air and the memories within’ll get lost or repaired... / Ain’t no voices, ain’t no sound, / Ain’t no footsteps on the ground, / Underground / In your sound… on the ground Ohhh

Song Of Wood 06:30
Take me to the hills / Take me through the shadows / Endless ways to wheel / Down the valleys below Oh… Gave my love a lake / But the lake was shallow / Ploughed my son a field / But the field lay fallow Oh… Angel on a throne / Devil on a wagon / God up on a stage / Grass around the tower / Tower in a field / Field is full of family / Family underground / And the valleys below Oh… Heading for that lake / Heading towards the shallows / So sew seeds in that field… / And the valleys below. Oh…

Finally Home 07:21
I was alone, I was finally home / in the fields with the stars and the corn, / the old clothes and the photographs of the children when they were born I turned on my radio and / dialled into the old world / and the old sound... who who who who I stayed out late with the barn cats, / til the barn cats were all full grown. / I fell in love with a haystack, / it was a place I could call my own I turned on my radio, I dialled into the old world / and the old sound... who who who who I’ll climb into my old red truck, / I’ll drive towards that old world, / towards my sound, / then I’ll drive drive drive drive away away from this town! Lalala lalala lalala

I was in the wind with the wind in me / waving from the crown of an old dead tree / staring at the lake staring back at me / see the whole world start to turn I was in the rain with the rain in me / falling from a cloud I could barely see / staring at the fog staring back at me / see the colours start to run Oooh, turn again I was in the waves with the waves in me / floating on the top of a rolling sea / staring at the sky staring back at me / and we swallow up the sun Oooh, turn again Wind come in, come on (tell them i’m coming), / as the blossom falls (tell them I’m coming), / as the breathing moss (tell them I’m coming), / gently covers walls (tell them i’m coming) I was in the woods with the falling trees, / leaves were in the air that was breathing me; / breathing in the air now my body takes leave / as we turn turn turn again Oooh (again) Wind come in, come on (tell them I’m coming), / as the body falls (tell them I’m coming), / as the breathing moss (tell them I’m coming), / gently covers walls, tell them I’m … Wind… Tell them I’m… Wind Wind

Wind come in, come on (tell them I’m coming), as the body falls (tell them I’m coming), as the breathing moss (tell them I’m coming), gently covers walls, tell them I’m… Wind… Tell them I’m… Wind... Wind Wind
