Track Name: Ebony River
I climbed every mountain
I forded the sea
To drink from your fountain
In a forest ravine

And all of the rivers that will never reach the sea
All of the sleepers never had a chance to dream
All of them silent in the valleys of the dammed
All of them lying in a galaxy of sand

Oh Ebony

And all of the worlds that are hidden from our eyes
All of their glory like the Palace of Versailles
All of it hid like the secrets of the heart
Only concealed until the revolution starts

Through the wake of the valley
Your torrents are free
Till the chains of the ocean
Bear you to me

And all of the clouds gather boulders from the sky
Roll them down the river like the marbles of a child
Civilization once the kingdoms of the wild
Swept on your cascades through the jungle of the mind

Oh Ebony
Track Name: Sentinel (This Little Light)
So what
What are you waiting for
There's nothing
Nothing standing in our way
I believe this day
That we
Were meant to see
The depths of love and
Ecstasy
The heights of suffering
When you are separated
From me

This little light
I'm a 'gonna let it
I'm a 'gonna let it shine
So no matter where you go
No matter what you do
No matter what the distance
It's the sentinel
In the darkness of your night

If I sleep
Then let me let me never wake
If I forsake
The sweetness of your smile
The colour in your cheek
That's like
The face of dawn
The blush of innocence
Untorn
The breadth of love
That triumphs
Over war
Track Name: Where the Curlew Cries
There's no escape from this island
From her rocky windswept shore
From her gently sloping valleys
To the dry and dusty ford

By rugged mountain ranges
We are barred hemmed in before
Stronger than shackles of iron
Flailing whips of leather cords

Let me die before my children
On the wind my ashes fly
In the forest of Australia
Down where the curlew cries

Long before the ships of England
Brought the curse upon this land
The ground was worked before them
Ochre jewel across the sea

By the people of the mountains
By the people of the plains
Kimberley to Tasmania
Barwon River to Buckley's day

So we strive in frontier country
Blood on blood passion and rage
Desperate souls fight for survival
Indigene and convict slave

Now bushranger robber barons
Rape the land and bleach the tide
No more chains of iron
Shackled hearts still remain
