Mel Skubich Heard the track Singing the Bones for the first time a while ago when Damh the Bard played it in one of his Druidcasts. Was intrigued by the video. Great, atmospheric stuff. Love the contrast of the voices. Favorite track: Singing the Bones.

Track Name: Demeter (Your Fruit)
Put your ear to the ground
if you can't hear the ocean
you've been running so long
you're not used to the motion
they play in the park with their god fearing daughter
they've got leave to catch the sunlight but none to catch the water

She picks up the atoms and hangs them from cables
got the blueprint sketched up
and layed out on the table
then drops to her knees with the weight on her shoulders
whispering into the air "help the wind shape the boulders"

She's waiting for you to come home

Reach for the sky screams the grass by the deck chairs
we'll be with out brethren soon
roam for hectares and hectares
but for now lets grow through cracks
in the tiles in the backyard
yeah you thought you'd keep us out
didn't know it would be that hard

hear the steal pterodactyls bounce off stones at the grave site
fly the veins of the world keep them locked up and tongue tied
we're a modern age of dinosaurs clicking and whiring
using another ages dinosaurs to keep our engines burning.
Track Name: Singing the Bones
these words are already well worn
re-carving the same sounds again
I feel I know so few
the mountains are dreamers too
with their head in the clouds
and diamonds in their souls
you've made your peace with change
but its not change you pursue
let the wind carry you away
century by century
until we are as much the desert as the ocean
till we are all oceans
then lets be clouds
so we can see what the mountains dream of

next foot forward
next foot forward
it screams in my ear throw your bag on your shoulder
its close to over almost over
just step of the deck while the ships moving slower
its hard for you to commit without knowing
but this one don't care if you go where she's going
so swim the waters
swim the waters
dust off you jeans don't look back just look forward

she is who she is
she is who she is

start the fire
stoke the fire
you've just reached the beach now you need to get dryer
there's time for mourning just wait till morning
warm up your soul don't ignore all the warnings
your hearts full of gold and this woman's the banker
might be your bird
might be your anchor
so swim the waters
swim the water
let the current pull you to and fro in the slaughter.

She is who she is
She is who she is

Let the current pull you away
