Track Name: Majestic
“It was the day after the night that you left,
It was the day of my first light without you.
It was a chaotic sunny morn,
It left me no time to mourn.
It was a captivating morning.

We went walking through the forest,
While I went walking through my thoughts,
But what shook me out of my reverie,
What brought me back down to earth
To the unchanging scenery of the place of my birth,
Was I sight that I’ll never forget. It was a sight that we’ll never forget.

-Majestic-

It was a majestic flying creature.
It came into view with a crack.
Well we couldn’t see much of it but a majestic shade of black.
It was flying in the treetops,
Gliding through the leaves,
Enormous was its body and graceful were its wings.
But so swift did it fly, we only saw it for a blink.

All this we felt more than saw.
Oh, we felt more than saw.

So we followed it to the river,
Following the sounds and dancing trees.

-Majestic-

We dug our toes in the sand, the river sand as the water strolled past.
The sun shone bright; brighter than what I felt inside.
We scanned the horizon, shading our eyes,
Looking for any signs of black,

But I knew in my heart he was never coming back.
Oh I knew in my heart he was never coming back.”
Track Name: Barred
“What can explain the beauty of silence?
What can express the gracefulness of stealth?

What can explain the beauty of attentiveness?
What can express the gracefulness of patience?


Oh, the silent hunter, stalking out his prey,
Nothing can express but what his actions say.
Oh, and I’ve been taught the lesson of the owl,
The lesson of humility, of the hunter on the prowl.
He asks for no attention, gliding through the night,
The beutifulest [ ;) ] things plead for no spotlight.”
Track Name: Feather
“When I see your ticklish sides,
Beautiful arrangement of brown and white,
Serrations in your outer side
To keep you quiet for the hunting night.

Oh, my dreams are tethered to every time I see a feather.

When I see your beauty shine,
A thousand colors, a million times,
Repetition yet one of a kind,
All my doubts are swept aside.

Oh, wonder is tethered to every time I see a feather.


Legacy shine, brighter than my mind,
Beauty show, these gifts aren’t mine to own.


When I see your painted leaves,
Speckled wonder, striped beauty,
Oh I can hear those melodies
Tied to my heart so intimately,

Oh, the song is tethered to every time I see a feather.

When I see your
A masterpiece in of its own,
Attached to spans of weightless bone,
But I’m not the first to observe what’s shown.

Oh, Legacy is tethered to every time I see a feather.

When I see that natural lace,
I remember back to your smiling face,
And how you always did proclaim
Of love and kindness,
Hope, and grace.

I can hear your song.
Oh I can hear your song.
Oh I can hear your songs every time I see a feather.


Oh, my dreams are tethered to every time I see a feather.”
Track Name: Migration
“Oh I'll miss you now, but I'll see you soon,
I'll fly past the sun,
I'll glide past the moon.
I'll dance past the stars,
Through every constellation,
Oh, sweet migration.

Oh I'll miss you now, but I'll see you soon,
I'll fly over mount
I'll glide over dune.
I'll dance over river,
Through all organic nation,
Oh, sweet migration.

[Extra Verse:]
(Oh I'll miss you now, but I'll see you soon,
I'll fly above wave,
I'll glide above blue.
I'll dance above seas
[(vivid and free)]
In wild emancipation
Oh, sweet migration.)


Chasing the dawn to a new day,
Through bright golden sun ray,

In triumphant elation,
Oh, sweet migration.”
