about

Becoming is an album and art series about how none of us are static. We are so dynamic, as there is no arrival point for the soul. We are always in the constant process of Becoming.

Track Name: Boxing Shadows
Oh, you won the war, you won the war
and now you’re wandering how you’re so alone

You got the part, you got the part
but why are all lines so damn short?

You’re boxing shadows, you’re not the hero
of great renown, there’s room to grow

Oh, when do you know, when do you know?
That all the work was worth the pay in tolls?

My dreams still howl, my dog still growls
the pack is running faster every hour

You’re boxing shadows, you’re not the hero
of great renown, there’s room to grow

You’re boxing shadows, you’re not the hero
of great renown, there’s room to grow
Track Name: Elixirs
I wasn’t quite prepared for this, I know
My hands still haven’t got used to the ropes
I promise I’ll grow stronger as we go
I’ll get a tighter grip here for the pull

But I’m taking a drink from the fountain
I’m trying the elixir of youth
I’m coming on down from the mountain
I’m re-reading the whole book of truth

That calories were burning at the door
You’ll have to carry me from off the floor
I wasn’t quite prepared for this I know
I grew up a featherbed at home

But I’m taking a drink from the fountain
I’m trying the elixir of youth
I’m coming on down from the mountain
I’m re-reading the whole book of truth

I’m coming on down from the mountain
with some wisdom that’s on my tongue
I’m taking a drink from the fountain
So I’ll make the day like I am young
Track Name: Ghosts for Tinder
Come and keep by my lovely fire
I’ve got pieces I’m scheming from the liars
with in me

You’ve replayed in my darker mind
You’re relived in the days I have assigned
without you

Yes, I’ll leave it behind
Yes, I’ll leave it behind
Yes, I’ll leave it behind
Yes, I’ll leave it behind

Burn it down here
burn it down
it will come again
come up, on up from this ground
Up and around
So burn it down

I’ve got ghosts for the tinder glow
I’ve got pages to wash as clean as snow
to warm me

I’ve got memories for matches now
I will lighten the load so sad and loud
for When I see you

Heaven knows it will light
Heaven knows it will light
Track Name: Please Cover Me
Please cover me buried in wonder
Under the joy
and I will rise up, rise again

Please cover me buried in hope
under the glory
and wonder
and I will rise up, rise again
new
Track Name: Sunrise Sunrise Sunrise
Will you wake w me, In the sunrise
Will you wait w me in the moonlight
How we'll lay, And both be held
Folding limbs
As last lights fail -

Oh you'll walk w me
In the one light
Oh you'll sing w me
The one line
How you'll smile
How we'll laugh
How we'll stand
As oceans pass —

Oh you'll dance w me
At first sight
And fall asleep, beat
After night after after night
How we'll watch
Them fly away
How we'll say we love the race that they would take -

Won't you wait w me
For the sunrise
Holding close to me
In the one light
We'll all move on Far from here
My dust to dust And your dust near -
Track Name: Eventually
My hourglass, my calloused hands
My furrowed brow in all my plans
I’ll come into my own, I’ll come into my own

The distance I have traveled
The wool that I have gathered
I’ll come into my own, I’ll come into my own
Heaven’s ship sails low
All the while, it’s ever close
You know you know…

You’ll never have that time you need
You strike the rock but nothing bleeds
You’ll come into your own
eventually

the distance you have wandered
The fabric torn asunder
You’ll come into your own, you’ll come into your own

Heaven’s ship sails slow
Give it time, it’ll show
before you go, before you go
you know, you know, oh

Before you go, before you go
You know you know, oh
Track Name: You Seem Yourself
You seem yourself,
You seem yourself today
more than yesterday

You lost yourself
Tossed along the way
But that, Love, was yesterday

What will it take
to wash it off?
to turn your head?
to move along?

What will it take
to let it go?
to leave the past?
to pay the toll?

Lalala oh, oh
Track Name: I Have Waited for You
You bring a beginning
You spark a heart that’s gone to line
and you jump the spine

You stun like a canon
You show the scars of your darkest night
in the morning light

I have waited for you
I have waited so long

You bite like a new life
You cut the metals on the fold
and you break the binds

You blind like the lights on
A brighter sun to run the sky
Always on my side

I have waited for you
I have waited so long

You bring a beginning
You spark a heart that’s gone to line
and you jump the spine

You stir like a new birth
You lift a mother on the wings
and the free bird sings

I have waited for you
I have waited so long
Track Name: Will You Stay?
When our fathers left us
it took apart the home
and it left it’s influence
on how we see our gods

Will you stay? ooh, ooh
Will you stay? ooh, ooh

Or will you get going, will you get going, will you get going
will you be gone?
