We would like to thank our families and friends for providing us with overwhelming support. Especially to those who have given us places to rest our worn out bodies and minds on the road (Mike & Nancy, Corrine & Gary, Pius & Gail, Joe & Michelle, Iain Beaton & family). Also, to those who helped with transport, allowing us to travel & share our music (Maria & Alan, Judy & Janea). Alex Macaskill of Fish Bone Prints created the beautiful artwork you see lining this album. A big thanks to Mark Scott as well, who recorded and mastered this album at Smashbox Studios in Dominion, Nova Scotia. Finally, and most importantly, thank you to anyone who has ever come out and let us share our music with them. We hope to see you all again soon.

Track Name: Black Lantern
Lined in silver,
wind cuts the night,
chase the river,
I can find it in the moonlight,
my body roams here,
but I am left in,
a flood of fear cause,
black is my lantern,
black is my lantern,

I wanna find a place of my own,
I wanna find a place of my own,
I wanna find a place of my own,
I wanna find a place of my own,

Cold December,
night chills my bones,
I am left here,
so far from my home,
I can see the forest,
she speaks to me,
but echos lost in the tops of the trees,
in the tops of the trees,

I wanna find a place of my own,
I wanna find a place of my own,
I wanna find a place of my own,
I wanna find a place of my own,
I wanna find a place of my own,
Track Name: Carry Me
If this breeze is so uneasy,
Would it help if I was there to hold the door closed?
Stumble in the dark to find a candle and a spark
to light your home.

But the fire won't stay lit,
I can't light your eyes without a wick,
so we will sit in the dark, alone.

We are young,
We are young,
It's okay,
We are young.

Lately I've been seeing,
old faces in my dreams and they've been asking
"where'd you go?"
Lately I've been hiding,
look for someone to confide in to raise me up
from this low.

But the fire won't stay lit,
I can't light your eyes without a wick,
so we will sit in the dark, alone.

We are young,
we are young,
It's okay,
We are young.

Carry me down to the water, down to the low.
Track Name: Thank You
I looked to you brother,
over and over,
a wonderful wanderlust,
wide open rover,
strong and content that the world would provide,
to a sensitive soul your unwilling to hide,
but me I was raised where the land meets the sea,
and we buried the notion of longing to leave,
but you would be swayed by far away eyes,
and that was the difference between you and I,

Oh oh oh where do you where do you go,
oh oh oh my sensitive sensitive soul,

The road made you coarse bitter and bold,
time had it's way and the boy had grown old,
the faces you ran from back in the blue were in every new town,
they'd been waiting for you,
and we all have our reasons like you had yours too,
one cannot judge what the others will do,
you had your way and it would suffice but the choices we make,
they all come with a price,

Oh oh oh where do you where do you go,
oh oh oh my sensitive sensitive soul,

Oh oh oh where do you where do you go,
oh oh oh my sensitive sensitive soul,

But somewhere out there is a mother who's proud of him,
a sister who cares and is not made to doubt on him,
and ashes to dust but one thing remains is a house built of hope,
that buries his own name,
and I've heard you never can let go of these things,
that follow like shadows,
you hold your pride, tighter then most but it's nothing to the grace,
of coming back home,

I wanna thank you,
I wanna thank you, very much,
I wanna thank you,
I wanna thank you, very much,
I wanna thank you,
I wanna thank you, very much,
I wanna thank you,
I wanna thank you, very much,
