THE END OF THE FIGHT (Words/Music by Greg Vanderpool) In the heat of the moment By the beat of the torment wind From the fray of the fire's arms To the end of the fight Where is the song that envelops me And puts my fears to rest The deep sound of significance Drowning in impermanence Oh hear me in hollow hills Take my ephemeral cry For to deliver this broken husk To the end of the fight In the heat of the moment By the beat of the torment wind From the fray of the fire's arms Into the wings of the night From this dust to which I shall return At the end of the fight When it's all said and done we run To the end of the fight
2.
TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES (Words/Music by Greg Vanderpool) Up and down again Void on every side You come home to a nightmare then Don't it make you want to fly Quick hit, hit the breaks Red and you collide Something like a meltdown then Don't it make you want to fly Stretched out 'til we're paper thin We pull our canvas tight Bracing for a tragic ending Don't it make you want to fly
3.
THE LESS IT CAN BE MEASURED (Words/Music by Greg Vanderpool) Well it won't be long Until the weary stand Until the burden breaks Into a thousand strands And it won't be long Until we see the hand That comes to heal our wounds And turn the glass to sand And it's all I know When I'm running around my soul Something held us near Under a heavy wind Call it what you will Drop what you're carrying But it's all I know When I'm running around my soul It's all I know When I'm running around my soul

Unrest 02:23
UNREST (Words/Music by Greg Vanderpool) When you see her turning over In a cold red glow Morning Sky Faintly hear the roll Distant thunder From a whispering shore A restless mind's roar In the vast unrest A new fire Immaterial Left to wander
5.
TIGHTROPE (TRANSMISSION FAREWELL) (Words/Music by Greg Vanderpool) So I'm sending out a transmission farewell A new course to carve I shed this shell Only a retrospective eye could ever tell it well That all we are is all we have to sell 'Cos I'm taking all the truth from true love Burning from the inside out But I've been walking on this tightrope too long to doubt Over hills and fields, the city sway All the best laid plans, our dreams in vain Someday I think we'll get it right I hope it's safe to say With time to kill and love not fade away 'Cos I'm taking all the truth from true love Burning from the inside out But I've been walking on this tightrope too long to doubt Taking all the truth from true love…

Orbital 03:24
ORBITAL (Words/Music by Greg Vanderpool) I'm looking back I'm looking back for the rescue letter I'm looking back but all I can see is sea On thunder paths I drown the sound of a sight unseen A snapshot mind, that's the only thing that's free Free… I'm walking back I'm walking back to your arms again Sometimes it's darkest just before the dawn
7.
LITTLE HURRICANE (Words/Music by Greg Vanderpool) Don't search me for resolution Don't ask me for gold I'm just swimming in these seas alone Something less than coalescent A transitory state Drifting, never sinking, in the wake Bring the daylight I can't see the damage from this sting Some sense of perspective Thought I saw the strangest thing The strangest thing Trace a line back somewhere There is nowhere to begin I can't articulate, can't comprehend So push us out from shore Into the center of the doubt Maybe this is how it is We start to sort it out Can't figure out You are a little hurricane You are a little hurricane But there's no calm in your eye There's no calm in your eye (Neil Young said that… or something like that)
