Track Name: No Surprise
The Hill and Wood - No Surprise

It’s no surprise that you’re having doubts
I’ve been standing by just waiting it out
Can you tell me what will become
When this all circles back around?
A sorcerer’s world is full of too much choice.

You’re tired of words. They don’t mean enough.
You say that don’t capture what you’re thinking of.
And you’re tired of your crippled friends for being too damn tired from walking.
You’re starting again, but it won’t be that long…

Can you tell me what will become
When this all circles back around?
A sorcerer’s world is full of too much choice.
And you’re tired of your crippled friends for being too damn tired from walking.
You’re starting again, but it won’t be that long…
Track Name: Alas, Alone
The Hill and Wood - Alas, Alone

When I first get home
From another tour
I slowly close the door
And stand inside my walls

The water’s reached a boil
I cannot find my phone
It’s strange to be alone
With no one left to call

It’s not anything that no one’s felt before
It’s a place that is best left unexplored
The idea of sitting in a chair
Alone, all quiet, just leaves me scared

How come you’re not here?
How could I forget?
My memory’s regret
It’s all that I hold dear.

You left in the middle of what I thought was small
Wrote a note out and stuck it to the wall
I was working, writing down this song
When I looked up you were already gone
A choice I didn’t know I made
Now it feels like such a crummy trade.
Right now I’d like to be anywhere
But alone, all quiet, and still in this chair
Track Name: Kindred
The Hill and Wood - Kindred

Where’d you get your middle name? From your mother’s side?
Do you think it’d be the same if you were given a say?
Do you ever think what it’d be if you could decide?
Would you change? Do you think you’d change it?

Are you honestly surprised you got invited?
Do you think that they would have it any other way?
Has it ever crossed your mind
It doesn’t have anything to do with you?

Oh why, oh why do you deny your kindred?
It’s much too much for you to throw away
Will you ever know what it means to be someone
If you can’t see the ones from whom you came?

Your father’s son. It is enough.
You can’t outrun. It is enough.
Track Name: Unpacking
The Hill and Wood - Unpacking

I went out walking
I saw you once or twice
Before I realized I wasn’t walking a line
The clouds up above me
We’re sailing so high
I thought they were the sky, but they drifted away

Stars came out in time
Smiling like a child
Forgetting what’s mine and what is yours
There’s so much more than what we define

I got to thinking
About all of the times
I was looking for signs each way that I turned
Strangers that passed me and cars driving by
Got me wondering why, but I never discerned

Turning back around
Toward your open doorway
Feeling like I’ve found
All that I would want to find
Track Name: Crocodile
The Hill and Wood - Crocodile

Oh, dear brother, love you like no other
Writing you a letter that you will ignore
Cancellations to every invitation
Sending a soft answer with a harder core

You’re staring at me like I’m a 10-foot crocodile
Oh, don’t be dismayed. It’s only a smile.

Sister forgive me. I prefer to living
Working after hours without an empty hand
You’re known for serving way beyond deserving
Giving me a chair when I have legs to stand

The less that people know, the farther you will go
I live by these words. It seems to have worked.

Fundamental decisions
Explain the way you’re living
Track Name: Seasons
The Hill and Wood - Seasons

I stood alone and watched you go, babe
My crying voice was out of range
And as I stood with none beside me
I watched the seasons in me change

A part of me has lost a mother
A part of me has lost a child
A part of me will rise from the ruins
But at least not for a little while

I think of you when I walk this city
And I walk it almost all the time
And even though it's only pity
It’s too much for me to leave behind

A part of me will live forever
A part of you will do the same
But none of me will ever be able
To go back from where we came

I stood alone and watched you go, babe
My crying voice was out of range
And as I stood with none beside me
I felt the seasons in me change
Track Name: Jericho
The Hill and Wood - Jericho

These days I feel I’m bound to break
I lay in bed but stay awake
My walls are soon to crumble down
All I can do is hold my crown

If only I could change my name
I wouldn’t have to stay this way
If I could do it all again
I think I’d be that woman

Oh Jericho! I feel you close
I hope you know I loved you most
All that you had they took by force
A baby born without a choice

They’ve got me all surrounded now
It’s way too late to leave this town
I should have made my getaway
When I first heard the trumpet’s play

Oh Jericho! I feel you close
I hope you know I loved you most
All that you had they took by force
A baby born without a choice
Track Name: When You Go
The Hill and Wood - When You Go

When you go all, I know
It’s a murder
Out loud I know it sounds
So absurd
But tested by water and fire I’d rather be
‘Cause when you fade, all I can say, it’s asking too much of me
Still I will give. It’s the life that I live.

On the day you said OK with a smile
I didn’t know you would go for such a while
Now I spend days on end cursing the sky
Living in my East Berlin, wondering why
You’re not with me.
I just can’t see.
Track Name: Magnetar
The Hill and Wood - Magnetar

After everywhere I’ve been, everything I’ve been through
I’ve seen two types of people, ones like me and ones like you
Me, I’m just a moon, just a cold ball that lingers
And you’re a magnetar with lights coming out your fingers

You ask me if everyone sees the same blues and greens
I’m nodding “yes” even though I don’t know what you mean

Today I saw my shrink. I believe he saw me too
And both of us agreed that there’s nothing I can do
I’ve spent all of my life, arms around my knees
And I could see the forest but it was hard to see the trees

I’m not saying you’re responsible to help me ever change
Even still I got to tell you, I don’t feel the same

I’ve been picking up the Word.
I’ve been waking with the birds.
I’ve been writing all this down.
And I’m going outside, I’m taking these long drives,
I’ll tell you all about it if you really want to know.

Let’s get out of here.
Track Name: The Choices I've Made
The Hill and Wood - The Choices I've Made

Hey do you think we could carry each other
It doesn't seem like it's too heavy a load
But I'm scared of the weight not making us stronger
I'm scared it's a weight we won't want when we're old

I know when the water is deep that one has to dive
I know your eyes are enough for me to forget I'm alive

But I've come to a pass and it's raining down knives
And I'm looking for one that will serve me what's true
So I take one in hand and hope I stay alive
And hope it's not one that will cut me in two

My arms are warm with the blood of the choices I've made
The more I bleed the less that I am afraid

It's not fair to say that I'm thinking out loud
My heart has arrested my mind and my pride
And it's not fair to you if I stay up on a cloud
It's time I come down to get out what's inside

I'll tell you once. I'll tell you once again
It won't be enough for us to settle as friends

I come here today with a load on my back
It's not one I'll ask you to shoulder yourself
It's one that I need to throw down on the tracks
That lead to the caverns of a fiery hell

It's truer to say that I've never made a choice
Each decision I make has to be done in a soft tone of voice

So hey, one day I hope you will know
If I felt free to do so I would take your hand
And that the winds of time which steadily blow
Will uncover the secrets that hide in the sand

I think it's now time for me to go
Before I draw this knife into you
I won't do it fast, but I can't do it slow
I hope it's the hardest thing I'll ever do
Track Name: The Tide Decides
The Hill and Wood - The Tide Decides

Gone are my days
When I saw my life in black and white.
Most of the time I feel like I've been blind.

Now that I
Have arrived
How long do I have here to stay?
I'm betting on only for just
One more day.

Silent sisters
Veiled in white and blue,
Just out of view. I'll never see.

Wading out from the shore.
The ocean floor
Is miles below. The tide decides
Wherever I will go.
