Track Name: Border Child
Are you lost little child?
Did you cross the Mayan wild?
With the heat of the desert and rattlesnakes at your feet?
Did you fall from your mother’s hip somewhere along that trip?
Did she burn in the fire of the desert sun?

You are wiser than the men who fight this war.
You are stronger than the men who built this wall.


Did a man with a gun shoot you down one by one?
Did coyotes drag you 1500 miles?
Did they put you on trial, although you’re just a child?
Did they charge you with running for your life?

You are wiser than the men who fight this war
Walking in the dark under the stars.

You are stronger than the men who built this wall.
Looking for somewhere to call home.
Track Name: Spirits
Are you out there somewhere?
Are you hungry are you cold?
Have the thieves all around you
stolen all of your gold?

The moon still shines brightly
in the evening sky.
Do the stars answer questions for you?
Do they tell you who you are?

Shadows are crawling across my window shade.
Spirits are calling, whispering your name.
Are you you out there can you hear me?
I cannot hear your voice, only my heartbeat

I’ve walked the lonesome canyons
of crowded city streets,
completely disconnected
from the faces that I see.

If your eyes asked me questions,
what secrets could I keep?
And if I close my eyes to listen,
I’m afraid I would hear:

What will it take to believe it?
Open that door and you’ll feel it.
All you have lost
are right behind that door.

Spirits are calling, whispering your name.
Shadows are crawling across my window shade.
Are you you out there can you beathe?
I cannot hear your voice, only my heartbeat

Shadows are crawling across my window shade.
Spirits are calling, whispering your name.
Are you you out there can you hear me?
I cannot hear your voice, only my heartbeat
