Track Name: Burning Just fine
I had to get away, so long to my hometown
Time for some new tale spinning.
But the bells oh the bells of my hometown
Sometimes they’re still ringing inside my head
Ringing inside my head

I was walking the line,
I was doing just fine,
just fine

Choirs of old won’t stop singing
Singing songs in my head
It has to end just like death,
And then a new beginning
Inside my head o-oh inside my head

I was walking the line, I was doing just fine
Had to make a turn, turn
For my heart to burn, burn just fine,
No more walking the line
I was meant to be only yours
You were meant to be mine


Mother cried sweet little baby stay
You’ll end up in a nameless tomb
I said mother don’t you weep no
I got to make it on my own and see it through
‘till Ha-llelu
My own hallelujah

Life was easy,
One of the black and white kind
But one tender kiss from you
And a million colours blew my mind
One big bang

I was walking the line, I was doing just fine
Had to make a turn, turn
For my heart to burn,
Burn just fine, no more walking the line, line
Burn, burn, burn just fine, no more walking the line
I was meant to be only yours
You were meant to be mine
Track Name: City Of Catharines
City of Catharines

I watch her stripping
I watch her grow cold
Cracks run through her skin
And much deeper i’m told
Much deeper i’m told

My hands touch a body
But the body’s still cold
Her eyes stare right through me
In silent revolt
In silent revolt

God wove a garment for her
The most colourfull dress for her

Slowly slowly
That’s the way the leaves grow over the city
Slowly slowly
That’s the way grace still runs right through the city
Do you hear the birds like i do
Do you hear the birds like i do
Calling her home
A garment lies waiting
The most colourfull dress

But the city is stripping
The city is cold
The city is crumbling
Makes me feel old
Makes me feel old
Track Name: Rising
I tried to go back to the start
To catch the very first beatings of the heart
I tried to find the origin of seed
Beautiful flowers and ugly weed
Who’s been sowing, who was not
What you needed, what you got

It came to me in my sleep
There’s a garden keeper and all are beloved
Up came the morning light
There’s a garden keeper and it is rising up
Where no water ever dropped
No one can keep it down or make it stop

I took a shovel to the ground
And I dug deep, so deep
To find all things that could be found
I dug deep, and deeper still
I am tending precious seed
The earth groans, together we bleed

It came to me in my sleep
There’s a garden keeper and all are beloved
Up came the morning light
There’s a garden keeper and it is rising up
Where no water ever dropped
No one can keep it down or make it stop
It is rising, rising up
Despite the half truths and plain lies spoken

It came to me in my sleep
There’s a garden keeper and I am beloved
