Track Name: Yggdrasil
The Great Transformation is dust in the wind
Sure as the seasons, the land is ours again
No retreat

And time will heal, the soil will feed
Our senses returned, Yggdrasil is free

Ravens in the sky see less the higher they climb
Odin's loyal spies, with man's folly written in their eyes

The Archaic Revival, return to feminine
Plants as process, their seeds are in the wind
No retreat
Track Name: Menhir
Menhir stood there, how to worship you?
Casting shadows, stone shaped codes

An ancient anchor in the cosmic sea
Aligned with lunar cycles and the sun
Connected by ley lines and serpentine streams
Your powers hidden away for far too long

How do we know what you mean?
How do we make men serene?

How do we make men see sense, make them more serene?
Track Name: Leave the herd
Lift the veil of perception, my left brain, rational deception
goes quiet, I'm born again

And I'm bored of these thoughts, tired of these games
Let love become all and right angles fade

In your eyes I see my future, they're so bright, so wild and earnest
And round the fire we dance elated

And I'm bored of these thoughts, they hold me down like chains
Beyond good and evil, let's leave the herd
