Angel Disfrazado (Angel in Disguise)

lyric by ann lindberg & stephen mcphail trans. by derek maraboli
music by eduardo teja & stephen mcphail

Eres un angel en forma de diablo
Angel disfrazado...
Reclamandome en
Mi oscura esquina...
Desde las sombras
Por la luz en tus ojos...

Angel caido en forma de diablo
Angel disfrazado...
Sin alas
Un hueco por alma...
Caigo en tus brazos
Libre de mentiras...

Angel guardian
Cuidandome
Angel disfrazado
Angel guardian
Protegi endome
Angel guardian

Soy un angel en forma de diablo
Angel disfrazado...
Corazon endurecido
Perdido en el limbo...
Espiritu y luz disipa
El miedo de mis ojos...

Angel caido en forma de diablo
Angel disfrazado...
Sin alas
Un hueco por alma...
Caigo en tus brazos
Libre de mentiras...

Angel guardian
Cuidandome...
Angel disfrazado...
Angel guardian
Protegi endome
Angel disfrazado...

Outlaw Trail

lyric by stephen mcphail
music by eduardo teja

Wolf tree growing wild...
On the Outlaw Trail...
Lone jackpine landmark...
Breaks from its forest jail...

Along the Outlaw Trail...

Weary bull moose slogging...
Towards higher ground...
Warning call of crow...
Rippling blast of sound...

Hunter's prayer for guidance...
Spirit lead my prey...
Family hungers for this meat...
Offered up today...

Along the Outlaw Trail...

Heart of the hunter...
Can't be purchased at a sale...
Only place you'll find one...
Is on the outlaw trail...

Cat-Tails & Pussy Willows

lyric & music by stephen mcphail

You promise the moon
but charge us the earth...
All that we want is
fair shares of the turf...

Cat-tails & pussy willows
pathway through the marsh...
News bites whisper from our pillows
can't sleep when life's so harsh...

TV pacifies the future
as it re-writes the past...
My challenge is to be
part of the cast...

Leaders promise security
only give us wars...
All we want is privacy
behind closed doors...

Cat-tails & pussy willows
seem to pull me through...
Love bites & gentle whispers
can't sleep when I'm with you...

Churches promise glory
deliver fear & strife...
Our challenge is to honour
nature in our life...

Sometimes The Bear

lyric by eduardo teja
music by eduardo teja & stephen mcphail

Try all that you want to
You can work so hard...
Cry all that you want to
Crying only goes so far...
Trying only goes so far...

Sometimes you get the bear...
Sometimes the bear gets you...
Just the way shit happens...
What you gonna do?

Get yrself some good times
Suffer through the bad...
Might as well enjoy 'em all
Don't help to just get mad...
Don't help to get mad...

Tough out the down time
Walk, never crawl...
You will in the end
You'll never win 'em all...

Killing Train

lyric by stephen mcphail
music by eduardo teja

Rumours at far distance
allegory or concealed intention...
Reposing on the surface
of our senses...
Does there exist
a clouded sanctuary...
A healing mystery
to stop the killing train...

Stop...
Stop the killing train...
Stand up...
Fear not the bleeding rain..
Stop...
Stop the killing train...

What mystic nonsense
is this holy grail...
But a quest
for high perfection...

Mystery of illumination
initiated ecstasy of union...
Only such glories can
stop the killing train...

Stop...
Stop the killing train...
Stand up...
Fear not the bleeding rain..
Stop...
Stop the killing train...

Must we feed this
voracious monster...
Created by
our fear of death...
Why support the minions
of the darkness...
By unquestioning
complicity...

Angel In Disguise

lyric by ann lindberg & stephen mcphail
music by eduardo teja & stephen mcphail

You're an angel in a devil's shape
Angel in disguise...
You claimed me
In my dark corner...
From the shadow
By the light in your eye...

Fallen angel in a devil's shape
Angel in disguise...
Without wings I had
A hole for a soul...
Safe in your arms
Freedom from lies...

Guardian angel
Watching over me
Angel in disguise...
Guardian angel
Protecting me
Angel in disguise...

I'm an angel in a devil's shape
Angel in disguise...
My heart was hardened
Lost in limbo...
You're light cleared
The fear from my eyes...
