Meridians 03:54
You were all, I nearly ceased to be Left me here, less half of me Gone so long, I travel on Lost in ways, maps don’t respond So, won’t you speak to me my meridians Tell me where my place should be From east to west, I slide along Slipping my way, I can’t hang on Traction’s attraction is easy to grasp But with torque so strong, the engine moves on So, won’t you speak to me my meridians Tell me where my place should be So, won’t you speak to me my meridians Tell me where my place should be Dancing destinies, twirl and pirouette I don’t strive to be a dancer But there’s rhythm in my feet Still a few more beats, a time change at best I still have time before I rest Still l’m searching for that someone to play with me Don’t need to be a shuffle or two step set Just hold my hands we’ll be free as the jazz The music’s ripe for picking, just extend you hand So, won’t you speak to me my meridians Tell me where my place should be So, won’t you speak to me my meridians Tell me where my place should be Tell me where my place should be

Refugee 04:29
You’re a refugee, almost proud to be free But you’re just about imprisoned by your poverty You’ve built a home from the ashes of the old And in a bag you still carry almost all that you own Your guard is up and you watch for forked tongues You’re careful about the careful changing in the streets There’s a different beat to the rhythm of your heart And it carries the rhythm of machine gun In time, maybe you will see people begin to agree and drink tea with someone you haven’t seen and In time, you still might look out from behind your wall at your children in the street People’s insides can be the hardest matter of all time Bodies can be broken, but thoughts still carved in stone From rock to rubble and rubble to dust, A speck of sand in your eye won’t keep you from much The words are fire burning all the time Ashes in the air, on our skin, in our hearts Maybe these bitter tongues still might make a sweeter sound But we’re waiting for the movement of this moment to arrive
