Track Name: Let The River Answer
Like a raven with its mind on fire
I hurry up and down the land
I keep looking for something in this dream of mine
A paperback is in my hand
Then I'll see you standing in the yard
And soar up from a sea of lies
I'm trying hard to reason as a child sees things
Maybe that would be unwise
Will you let the river answer?
Will you let the river answer?
Will you let the river answer?
Will you be baptised?
Now I'm chewing on the things you said
And feeling like a grain of sand
I guess there was a reason why things reached a head
But clearly I don't understand
So will you let the river answer?
Will you let the river answer?
Will you let the river answer?
Will you be baptised?
Track Name: When The Night Rose Like The Dawn
It was August 25th beneath the morning mist
The promise in the air was enriching
We cut stars out of rags, and used them in the flags
We didn't sleep a wink for all our stitching
And then the night rose like the dawn; we opened up our arms
And came down to the city streets to greet them
And on the peal of the bell, the streets began to yell
When night rose like the dawning of our freedom

It was only days ago, that fear settled here like snow
Our spirits were a world away from mending
Rumour spreading all around, like fire through the crowd
We didn't dare to visualise an ending
And then the night rose like the dawn; we opened up our arms
And came down to the battered streets to greet them
And on the peal of the bell, the streets began to yell
When night rose like the dawning of our freedom
When night rose like the dawning of our freedom
When night rose like the dawning of our freedom
