Track Name: Osmosis Song
I’m raining down down down
rising up with the clouds
I’m drifting with you
rising with the rain
flying through time
just a link in the chain
it’s all and none of it mine
it’s all and none the same
I pass through the membrane

my house is crumbling down
new life is coming around
into the earth returning (how high)
dissolving emerging
we’ve only borrowed these trees
they’ll cover us with their leaves
and we’ll be dressed in their bark
through rings drawn into the dark
they’ll take us back one day

up the waterfall

I am the dust of your bones
I am the sea in your veins
I am the fish in the sky
I am the bird in your heart

going up the waterfall (we leap)
back where we started it all
riding on the flying fish
playing in the spray
the whale in the tidal wave
calls out to us to be brave
there’s no need to ask how far
we’re going up to the stars
to swim in the Milky Way
