Track Name: New Moontide
'New Moontide'
words and music © 2016 Buck Curran/Arborea Music (ASCAP)

Soon we ride beneath the sky draped in red
To the West we fly, visions arise and blood on fire
Voices coming through, in waves as black as the sun
Symbols, shooting stars at the edge of night
Lead the way to the sea

Swimming in the New Moontide
Swimming in the New Moontide
We're coming through in waves, You and I

Soon we ride through darker forests and fields of gold
Through mountains we climb
Our eyes ablaze our heads on fire
Voices coming through, in waves hungry like the wolf
Symbols and artifacts at the edge of night
Ever leading the way to the sea

Swimming in the New Moontide
Swimming in the New Moontide
We're coming through in waves, You and I
We're coming through in waves, You and I
Track Name: Seven Gardens to Your Shore
'Seven Gardens to your Shore'
words and music by Buck Curran © 2016 (p) Arborea Music (ASCAP)

pitching my sails for the dark waves
setting my course for the deep sea
through time, in time, I will find you
through time, in time, I will find you

hearing your voice from the deep waves
gripping my soul through the dark night
in time and space you are singing
by the light, of far stars…I will take you

ascending through seven vast places
throught shadow and light…your seven faces
seven seas, seven gardens to your shore
seven births, seven deaths, to your shore

stones rising up from the ocean
your voice riding sensual waves
mystical sigh, burning song...how it drives me
dark black eyes, lovers arms, forever take me
seven seas, seven gardens, to your shore

pitching my sails for the dark waves
setting my course for the deep sea
in time, in time, I will find you
throug time, in time, I will find you

seven seas, seven gardens to your shore
seven seas, seven gardens to your shore
seven seas, seven gardens to your shore
seven seas, sevens gardens to your shore
seven seas, sevens gardens to your shore
seven seas, seven gardens to your shore
Track Name: Bad Moon Rising
Bad Moon Rising

I see a bad moon arisin'
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin'
I see bad times today

Don't go around tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Hear hurricanes ablowin'
I know the end is comin' soon
Fear rivers up an risin'
I hear the voice of rage and doom

Don't go around tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Hope you got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we're in for nasty weather
One eye taken for another eye

Don't go around tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Don't go around tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Lyrics by Buck curran

Love of the Sun, Crowned all in Gold
Wake now with Light, To Rise Tall and Fair
Light of Fire, Light that Heals
Om Mani Padme Hum

Love of the Sea, Green Silver Blue
Immortal Sleep, Return with the Tide
Waters Rise, Waters Heal
Om Mani Padme Hum

Love the Earth, Fertile and Wild
Wake Now with Life, Born as a Child
Breath of Life, Breath That Heals
Om Mani Padme Hum
