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…

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.
