5. "Grantchester Meadows"

Icy wind of night, be gone
This is not your domain
in the sky a bird was heard to cry
Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds
belied a deathly silence that lay all around
Hear the lark and harken
to the barking of the dog-fox gone to ground
See the splashing of the King-fisher
flashing to the water
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees
laughing as it passes through the endless summer
making for the sea

In the lazy water meadow I lay me down
All around me, golden sunflakes settle on the ground
basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon
bringing sounds of yesterday in to my city room
Hear the lark and harken
to the barking of the dog-fox gone to ground
See the splashing of the King-fisher
flashing to the water
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees
laughing as it passes through the endless summer
making for the sea

In the lazy water meadow
I lay me down.
All around me,
Golden sunflakes covering the ground,
Basking in the sunshine of a by gone afternoon,
Bringing sounds of yesterday into my city room.
Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog fox gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.


6. "Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict"

Aye an' a bit of Mackeral settler rack and ruin
ran it doon by the haim, 'ma place
well I slapped me and I slapped it doon in the side
and I cried, cried, cried.

The fear a fallen down taken never back the raize and then Craig Marion, get out wi' ye Claymore out mi pocket a' ran doon, doon the middin stain picking the fiery horde that was fallen around ma feet.
Never he cried, never shall it ye get me alive ye rotten hound of the burnie crew. Well I snatched fer the blade O my Claymore cut and thrust and I fell doon before him round his feet.

[...]

...and the wind cried back.


7. "The Narrow Way Part 1"

Following the path as it leads towards the Darkness in the North
Weary strangers' faces show their sympathy
They've seen that hope before
And if you want to stay for a little bit
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit
Before you the night is beckoning
And you know you can't delay
You hear the night birds calling you
But you can't touch the restless sky
Close your aching eyes beyond your name

Mist is swelling, creatures crawling,
Hear the roar get louder in your ears
You know the folly was your own
But the force behind can't conquer all your fears
And if you want to stay for a little bit
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit
Before you the night is beckoning
And you know you can't delay
You hear the night birds calling you
But you can't touch the restless sky
Close your aching eyes beyond your name

Throw your thoughts back many years
To the time when there was life in every morning
Perhaps a day will come
When the nights will be as on that morning
And if you want to stay for a little bit
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit
Before you the night is beckoning
And you know you can't delay
You hear the night birds calling you
But you can't touch the restless sky
Close your aching eyes beyond your name
Rest your weary head, be on your way.
