Track Name: Calico Jack
Once I was a sailor
True to king and country was I
Roaming the world on the fine sloop Ranger
On water surrounded by sky

Trusting in my crew
Fearless men both strong and true
The captain was a vain man
And he knew not what to do

Came across a warship
We should’ve stayed to fight
Against the pleas of this brave crew
The captain ran into the night

He was wrong and we were right
He was wrong and we were right

Whiling in a back bay
I took his ship and his command
And the faithful crew stood with me
And the captain stood where he belonged, on land

Branded as a mutineer
I could no longer serve
So I would ply the oceans
And I would take what I deserved

So we sail away
Skull and crossed swords flying high
Legends on the high seas
We’ll live as pirates til we die

Ships fell before us
Abandon Hope served us well
How I’ll be remembered only time will tell

He was wrong and we were right
He was wrong and we were right
He was wrong
Track Name: Doctor to the Dead
You go down King Street on the sixpenny side
Look for the house that ain’t a coffin length wide
If you see shadows dancing in the hall
It’s just the people from the paper on the wall
Spirits in the know this is where they go
To get some healing from the Doctor to the Dead

You know the doctor says the air is alive
More ghosts a-buzzin’ than bees in the hive
All through the churchyard you can hear a sad cry
Another lonely soul who don’t know how to die
Souls who can’t rest search out the best
They find they’re welcomed by the Doctor to the Dead

Some say love is like a hole in the ground
And death will never set you free
Go to the doctor, you know he’ll be around
He can set you right for eternity

Doctor got a sweetheart she’s so gentle and fair
A yellow ball gown and pearls in her hair
But she’s been dead for two hundred years
And every night the lover’s gotta shed the same tears
Cause he’s a slave to love’s eternal grave
It ain’t a cakewalk being Doctor to the Dead

Some say love is like a hole in the ground
And death will never set you free
Go to the doctor, you know he’ll be around
He can set you right for eternity

You go down King Street on the sixpenny side
Look for a house that’s a coffin length wide
You see the shadows dancing in the hall
It’s just the people from the paper on the wall
Seek and you find a love to last all time
Walking slowly with the Doctor to the Dead
He’s a Doctor to the Dead
It’s not just in your head
Doctor to the Dead
Track Name: Blue Destiny
Come with me
We’ll sail the stars to the edge of the sea
Run with me
Away from a life that never was meant to be

Come with me
Run with me

Tonight you’ll see
Where you belong is out on the open sea
We’ll be free
The life of a pirate is our blue destiny

Come with me
Run with me
Together we will rule the sea
Our future is looking bright

Come with me
Run with me
The moon has shown a path right into the sea

Tide has turned
All bridges burned
The wind is right
The moon is bright
It's time for us to be fast away

All your dreams
All your fears
Everything you ever wanted is here

Come with me
Run with me
We’ll sail the stars to the edge of the sea
Come with me
Sail away
Run with me
Trust in me
Say you'll stay forever and a day

All your dreams
All your fears
Everything you ever wanted is here

Come with me
Run with me
We'll sail the stars to the edge of the sea
Track Name: Loraxia (the Song of the Trees)
The tide has turned the winds of change are here
I feel the rustling in the silk of time
The earth is strong your roots bring reason to your rhyme

We have no doubt we only know the truth
The wood will listen as the flesh reveals
Prick up your ears hear what we're telling you

We bring you life we give you air to breathe
We are your shelter we are your home

This is the forest
We are the trees

We do not judge we do not question you
We spring eternal in the life of man
Come wrap your arms around us and take your leave

We know no fear
We are the guardians
This is the here this is the now
We are united in the defense of green

This is the forest
We are the trees

Loblolly pine live oak and sweetgum rising
Our sap is blood from an ancient race
Red maple grow palmetto laying low
Longleaf you shine old hickory doing fine
No strange fruit grows anymore on the sycamore

This is the forest
We are the trees
Track Name: Swim Away
Down by the river you can taste the danger
The water's always changing it's a world you'll never know
Wade in the water
Let the river touch you
Don't try to know
Just let yourself go

You can choose your fear
Or you can swim away

Here is the river the ancient waterway
The paths of our ancestors are written in the wind
Lure of the ancient river secrets buried deep
Go with the flow and know that the river is your friend

You can choose your fear
Or your can swim away
Swim away

Down by the river you can taste the danger
The water's always changing
It's a world you'll never know
Wade in the water
Let the river touch you
Go with the flow and know that the river is your friend

You can choose your fear
Or your can swim away
Swim away
