We are from Sudan
Sudan is our homeland

Let us not forget where we come from
Sudan is our homeland

Track Name: Passerine
In the backdrop of the sound-surround this morning
A starling sings to me of times gone by
And in no small measure I recall this scene
But I miss my passerine

It’s been a long time since I’ve visited these places
These all familiar spacesm I can trace along my life

In the bedroom I can hear her sweet voice calling
A mem’ry of a mem’ry moves me now
No mistaking her when I was just nineteen
Still I miss my passerine

It’s been a long time since I’ve visited these places
These all familiar spacesm I can trace along my life

I recall watching her watch me through my window
The things that stay with us form who we are
Moments filling in the spaces in between
And I miss my passerine

It’s been a long time since I’ve visited these places
These all familiar spacesm I can trace along my life
Track Name: Alright by Me
Many times we have wandered down this road
So many times we’ve been burdened by this load
And I can’t take it
You’d think by now we would learn to avoid this terrain
Once burned, twice shy, get out of the rain

We’ve gotta move on down the line
Find our way back to an easier time
Yeah, your one track mind
Is alright by me

Many times we’ve been tangled up in this web
So many times we been caught in the flow and the ebb
We just can’t shake it
You’d think by now we’d be tired by the turn of the tide
As the stars will align we’re along for the ride

We’ve gotta move on down the line
Find our way back to an easier time
You’ve gotta seek if you’re gonna find
It’s alright by me

We’ve gotta move on down the line
Find our way back to an easier time
Yeah, your one track mind
Is alright by me

We’ve gotta move on down the line
Find our way back to an easier time
You’ve gotta seek if you’re gonna find
It’s alright by me -- It’s alright by me
Track Name: Breathe Easy
Strung out and sleep deprived, I walked an empty stretch
I couldn’t see the waves at night, no I couldn’t see what’s coming next
Took all the will I had to keep me standing tall
But I really didn’t give a damn, no I really didn’t care at all

Breathe easy – Let all this drift away
Breathe easy – Tomorrow is another day

There’s something comforting ‘bout a long and lonely beach
When everything is out of hand and nothing seems within my reach
Let go what troubles me, each step leads further on
And maybe this will fall away just before the break of dawn

Breathe easy – And leave it all behind
Breathe easy – You know I need to ease my troubled mind

Breathe easy -- And leave it all behind
Breathe easy -- You know I need to ease my troubled mind

Breathe easy – Take one day at a time
Breathe easy – I’ll summit on this uphill climb
Track Name: Half Light
Like those who fly… in the late day sun
In the arctic half-light of Bridger Canyon
Existence fades away to being with my soul, and
Memories of the Blackfoot River sounds return me whole

There’s a four-count time, the hope that fish will rise
A deep contentment as the sun rests in the sky
Eventually they say that all things merge to one
And in between all of these things a wild river runs

I’ve been lured by distractions
Let what matters slip from view…

The river’s wide, cut from the world’s great flood
Runs over rocks below the sediment and mud
Where timeless raindrops fell and washed away all cares, and
Underneath those rocks are words, and some of them are theirs

I’ve been lured by distractions
Let what matters slip from view
I could stay here forever
‘Cause these days are too few

I’m haunted by waters…
Track Name: Undertow
Stand in the center of the eye of the storm
Blithely mistaking this fury for the norm
Danger above me now, I’m vulnerable and strong
There’s no convincing that there’s nothing I’ve done wrong

Oh, I’ll let go the undertow so it lets go of me
It’s hard to tell who’s holding on – I can’t forsake the sea
I know these things about myself – I go too willingly
And it’s a long way down – It’s a long way to go with the undertow

Leaving katabis, I search to find a shore
Lay floating on a wave and trusting as before
Let levity restore my brokenness this way
Tomorrow promises to keep these things at bay

Yeah, I’ll let go the undertow so it lets go of me
Pull myself through darkness from the bottom I can’t see
Just knowing this part of myself allows me to be free
Yeah, it’s a long way down - It’s a long way to go with the undertow

I’ll build a great-wall garden, where wild dreams will grow
I’ll tend the tender-hearted, where no one else will go
Though riptide forces pull me, I learn to hold my breath
And welcome transformation as I die a little death

This dark sarcophagus, drifts slowly out of sight
A distant memory, I finally see some light
On faithful firmament where kinder things surround
Holding to nothing in this wisdom that I’ve found

Yeah, I’ll let go the undertow
Said I’ll let go the undertow
I’ll let go…
Track Name: Fünkengrass
Fünkengrass Breakdown...
Track Name: Hegemony
They say we’re lucky in the land of the free
With peace and equal opportunity, yeah
And we’re all living the American dream
With everything exactly just as it seems

Saturated with these little white lies
One distracts one pulls the wool over our eyes
What would it take to make the populace see, to
Trouble this hegemony

Say, who’s behind this economic decline?
They tell the public that we’re doing just fine, yeah
The rich get richer while the poorer stay poor
Exactly how much more will people endure

What they don’t tell you is it’s par for the course
A planned dynamic, it’s a real tour de force
You’ll never hear it from the powers that be to
Trouble this hegemony

There doesn’t seem to be a reason or rhyme
To subvert prevailing paradigms
You’ve got to act yourself, ‘cause baby you’re free to
Trouble this hegemony
Track Name: Wilco Tango Foxtrot
Wilco - Tango - Foxtrot
Wilco - Tango - Foxtrot

Frenetic… Chaotic… Pandemic… Exotic…
What’s the frequency here?
Pathetic… Erratic… Ascetic… Ecstatic…
Have we got something to fear?

What’s going on? What gives?
What’s the matter here? What’s this?
I need a miracle, I need a new trend
I need an action plan, so we don’t have to pretend

Magnetic… Hypnotic… Emetic… Quixotic…
What’s the word of the day?
Prophetic… Fanatic… Kinetic… Schematic…
Has someone something to say?

What’s happening? What’s real?
What the 4-1-1? What’s the deal?
I need ticket in, I need to be found
I need some answers here, so we can turn this around

We’ve been occupied… We’ve been sanctified
We’ve been deputized… We’ve been mesmerized

Wilco - Tango - Foxtrot
Wilco - Tango - Foxtrot

Wilco - Tango – Foxtrot - Wilco - Tango - Foxtrot
Wilco - Tango…
Wilco - Tango – Foxtrot - Wilco - Tango - Foxtrot
Wilco - Tango…
