Track Name: Hands
My eyes are just eyes and my heart is just a heart, I'm afraid of the dark
I'm made out of sticks and stones, break my bones, break my bones
Burn me up until I'm just a scar

Your hands are naked and new
My hands hurt people like you

I am just a body, I am just a body, lay me down
My head is full of broken glass, look at me, don't look at me
I won't last

Your hands are naked and new
My hands hurt people like you

Knuckles white
My nails cracked
My thumbs bent
My palms black (x4)

I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
Track Name: Migration Song
My tribe, buried in the snow
This ice, clinging to fur like so much white gold
And the cold like a fire, burning sweetly
And the call of the wild, lowing softly

I am blooded beast of woolen winding
I have walked this path a million times and
Midnight sun, shining over
This is what I was made for

We go, trudging cross the endless tundra
We know we are safe beneath aurora
Follow close, mother's waiting
Eyes are old, ancient, gazing

They've seen it all before
Glaciers breaking
When the wind picks up
Season turning

So we walk to that place
Carry centuries of graces
Don't look back, it's alright
We can make it through the night
Listen now, to the call
That lies deep within us all
Follow maps in our bones
That will always lead us home
