Track Name: Modron
Modron! Modron!
Hunger as lightening, fear as rain.
Laughter as slaughter.
Our song, our joy, our game.

Brace in our hand, harness in the seed.
Trace in our palm, nurture, charm, and feed.

Anger as lightening, tears as rain.
Hereafter as daftness.
Our skill, our craft, our gain.

Crag, fell and moor. Her soil. Life's will
a mighty grittiness. Celebrate the life.
Black moon, white sun. Our ebb and flow
a honeysuckle bitterness. Celebrate the life.
Of love, of faith. The tension of a bowstring life.
Celebrate the life.
Track Name: Hillfort Mindset
Hillfort Mindset

A hillfort mindset will prevail.

Bring hate, bring nails,
wrapped round a horse's tail.
Bring wood, let bark,
our huddled band in slatted dark.
Bring carnyx, and shattered sound,
a vain hope to gain the higher ground.
Bring forth fear, pure blind zeal,
against a world of tempered steel.

A hillfort mindset will prevail,
if we close our world the magic fails.
Track Name: Come, Raven King
Come, Raven King

We, of no name – hunkered on Northern moor.
We, of no name – clung to Southern shore.

Come, raven King, ascend to bring
harmony to all.
A black moon rise on scattered tribes
of fen, fell, and moor.

We, of no name – wading Eastern fen.
We, of no name – straddling on Western fell.
Track Name: We Wait 2016
We Wait 2016

Our bodies forged. Steel muscles locked.
Head to head. All emotion blocked.
All nerves taut. Our eyes transfixed.
Hand to hand. To the end.

They will come – we wait for them.
