Lyrics

Skeletons

Written By: Josh Arnold

Words can sometimes say what deeds deny
And it hard when to yourself you have to lie
It's hard to be a man and look it in the eye
But oh god how I've tried
Oh I've tried

When it all comes crashing down
And the bitter truth comes out
Skeletons appear their bones protruding from the ground
But is it skeletons, or just me I've found

It's hard to wash the blood off of your hands
When the thought of what you done is more than you can stand
I look into the mirror, into these hollow eyes I stare
And wonder if I know the person there
God do I even like the person there

When it all comes crashing down
And the bitter truth comes out
Skeletons appear, their bones protruding from the ground
But is it skeletons, or just me I've found

Wildflowers

Written By: Josh Arnold

Run like the wind's behind ya'
And dance like there's music inside ya
Floating like a feather on the whim of the breeze
Laugh like no-one can hear ya
And frolic like nobody's near ya
There's untold beauty within ya
And its all you'll need

To grow free like wildflowers
Grow free in the hearth of the sun
Grow free like wildflowers
For you it's only just begun to shine

Give like nobody's asking
And go forth open hearted
It's all there on the horizon in endless skies
Love like nothin'can hurt ya
And ya don't have to always keep it together
Cause I don't wanna see ya lose that fire within your eyes

And grow free like wilflowers
Grow free in the hearth of the sun
Grow free like wildflowers For you its only just begun to shine

Buried Love

Written By: Josh Arnold

The forest has come between us
I've felt its shadow grow
Now the ravens mark the distance between the damdest souls
I can sense it in the silence
I know your sacrafice
For the fire inside ya's burnt out
I see it in your eyes

Bury this love beneath the winter
Bury it down and pray it will survive
Bury this love deep within ya
Shelter you heart and bury it alive

Now the ravenous wolves are forging against the starkest cold
But we'll rise and face them all with what warmth's left in our bones
Its just a lucid mist that rattles between the you and I
But there's labor in your affection
A strain set in your smile

Bury this love beneath the winter
Bury it down and pray it will survive
Bury this love deep within ya
Shelter your heart and bury it alive

Your warmth it's just an illusion
And it harbors such confusion

Bury this love beneath the winter
Bury it down and pray it will survive
Bury this love deep within ya
Shelter your heart and bury it alive

Thunder Bird

Written By: Josh Arnold

If you could sing to me
As deftly as the breeze
I won't tell a soul
In the calm before the storm
To keep this body warm
Please fill it with a song

But there she goes
And here I am, I'm all alone
But I won't let go
When she's lettin' go
This thunder bird has flown

I'm just a figure on the road
Who's shadow tends to grow
A little deeper in the snow
I look up to the clouds
And watch her float around
Like a stranger to me now

But there she goes
And here I am, I'm all alone
But I won't let go
When she's lettin go
This thunder bird has flown

Earth Shine

Written By: Josh Arnold

I see her colours surface
In light of sunset
Her eye's of emerald elusive
In all their depth
She's like a garden blooming
With roses woven in her shawl
With all these colours a moving
I won't ever grasp them all

Cause all my life I've been waiting for a sign
All my life I have felt it pass me by
But its nigh
Its in the earth shine

I watch the cumulus forming
In a deep ocean green
In it a savage dawning
Eroding the inbetween
The lightning I cannot harness
The thunder only echo's
There are feelings that I can't harvest
For they come and go

Cause all my life I've been waiting for a sign
All my life I have felt it pass me by
But its nigh
Its in the earth shine
