Track Name: The Severed Head
Can you see the bag I’m carrying around with me
It has a severed head inside and it’s so heavy
I’m looking for a place to bury it, to bury it
Where no-one will ever find it, they’ll never find it

I’ll dig a hole in the soil, the soil
Oh the toil, the toil
I’ll dig a hole in the soil, the soil
Oh the toil, the toil

But I can never dig a hole far enough down
I fear the shallow grave will one day be found
Someone will come along and dig it up again
And I will have to face the severed head my old friend

So I will make a fire, a fire
Oh I tire, I tire
I will make a fire, a fire
Oh I tire, I tire

In the field where I stand
Make a fire with my hands
It will leave a mark on the land
Like a bruise on the face of a woman
Track Name: This is the Road
I hide your name
The sound contained
I hear a hum

There is no other way
This is the road
I can carry the pain
Now I know

There is no other way
For your name is part of me
There is no other way
This is the road

And this is freedom
The road goes on and on
Past the cycle of thought
The traps where I am caught
To where the world is bright
Beyond the fight
Through the eyes of the witness
I find forgiveness
Track Name: Pieces of Me
Like a stone shaped by rolling waves
I have been shaped by all my days

All those pieces of me
All washed out to sea

Like the sand thrown by a hurricane
I have been thrown by your disdain

All those pieces of me
Just thrown out to sea

Pieces of me

Just when I think
There is nothing left to feel
Another layer is revealed
Raw and real
Another layer is revealed
Raw and real
