Track Name: even in the dark
don't need
no trivialities
I'm doin my own thing
I do just as I please
it is a blessed life
no worries and no strife
I'm doin fine

don't want
no new automobile
don't want no tv screen
don't want no happy pill
don't want no high heel shoes
don't want no shiny jewels
ain't got the time
ain't got the time and that's cause

even in the dark
baby, I can see
by the light of fire
burning inside of me
even in the dark
there's a wired glow
pulsing in the night like a siren singing low

even in the dark, woah woah woah

don't buy
no nonsense what they say
and what they selling me
on they magazine page
I ain't no dollar sign
I got my own two eyes
I know what's right

no way
don't want no credit card
don't want no bank account
don't want no shopping mall
don't want no mortgages
I'll do without it all
and live for today
and live for today and that's cause

even in the dark
baby, I can see
by the light of fire
burning inside of me
even in the dark
there's a wired glow
pulsing in the night like a siren singing low

even in the dark

don't want
no husband or no kids
don't want no diamond ring
no nice white picket fence
no wishing I could go and start over again
I'm living free

no thanks
don't want no uniform
no 9 to 5 living
no water cooler jokes
no morning traffic jam
and no retirement plan
I'll be alright

Track Name: the hunt
If it shakes you out your sleep at night with its strange and mournful howl,
Spend nights wandering til dawn's day break, so electric with its sound.
If your head floats among the rafters, collecting pearls of dewey visions,
And when they pour from you like raindrops filled with twinkling light and sacred wishes.
And if you can't rest til you've bottled your own potion of this power, Here's to hunting down the dreams that haunt your heart and all your hours.

If it tirelessly paces across floorboards of your creaky mind,
If it eclipses your horizon like bats inking out a milky sky,
A time that's always on its way but seeming never to arrive,
Here's to chasing it down from the inside out, here's to doing it despite.
And if you can't rest til you've bottled your own potion of this power,
Here's to hunting down the dreams that haunt your heart and all your hours.

So raise your arrow,
Raise your bow.

I am the hawk that stalks the sparrow whose sweet song torments it so,
In a spiral sweeping low.
I am the hunter who seeks a beast whose image only she can know,
Raise your arrow raise your bow.

Ro raise your arrow,
Raise your bow.
