1.
there's nothin' that the wind can do to keep from blowin' there's nothin' that the flame can do to keep from glowin' and there is nowhere that you can go to hide from knowin' it's everywhere it shows itself in everything there was peace on the day the earth spoke to me there was peace on the day the earth spoke to me there's a captain in the cavalry his eyes so used to violence there's deer all along the battlefield with their hearts all full of silence and somewhere, there's someone she's singing to herself softly she's everywhere she shows herself in everything there was peace on the day the earth spoke to me there was peace on the day the earth spoke to me

For the Sea 04:22
if you wish to rule the land and draw straight lines upon a map if you prefer the fist to the hand just watch out for the knife in your back for the sea and the captive crow for the flower that cannot grow for the sand when the tide is low if you wish to be redeemed if you're burstin' at the seams there will come a time of ancient knowing when your age is showing for the sea and the captive crow for the flower that cannot grow for the sand when the tide is low

Waitin' 03:09
waitin' for my heart to connect with the trees waitin' for the quakin' in my knees it's more than enough to want more than enough for me not afraid of breakin' the law not afraid of breakin' the law can't forget all the things that I saw waitin' for the blowin' of the wind waitin' for the shakin' in the limbs it's more than enough to want more than enough for them not afraid of breakin' the law not afraid of breakin' the law can't deny all the things that I saw waitin' for my heart to connect with the trees waitin' for the quakin' in my knees

I heard the sound of a gun but I turned around and there was no one and I smelled somebody burnin' we're all at war but the world keeps on turnin' let me sing you to sleep while I can 'cause I may wake up in the morning with your blood on my hands I saw the steel mountains crumble I felt the shake and I felt the rumble and I saw the mothers cryin' while the birds overhead were dyin' let me sing you to sleep while I can 'cause I may wake up in the morning with your blood on my hands I wrote this song for the trees for the clouds and the flowers and the bees and I pray for the strength of words but most of all I say a prayer for the birds
