Track Name: Dancing Bear
At eight feet tall
You were so formidable
It's in your voice
It's in the way you shave your hair

The orphan boys
And Bürstner sneaking out at night
It's in your voice
It's in the guilt you make me feel

In all your greatness (all your greatness)
In all your words (all your words)

And you were in
The line of shepherds at the inn
And I believed
The sounds you made were real sounds

The tendons plead
The way you danced along the shore
The mountain pass
The grove of trees where I performed

In all your greatness (all your greatness)
In all your words (in all your words)
Track Name: If I've Disturbed You/Luftwasse
And if I have moved you
To pride in your creation
That's all I need

And I've disturbed you
And troubled your attention
Go back to sleep

I'd rather part with
Public admiration
For private glee

Glee in the knowledge
That you're all standing up there
Inclined to me
Track Name: Slow Dakota Meets Bürstner in the Belly of the Whale
I met her there
Inside the belly of the whale
With wrinkled hands
She held a child to her chest

She told me how
The bonny child had come to be
Belovèd boy
Her only solace in the sea

In all your greatness (all your greatness)
In all your words (all your words)

And when I asked
Why was she condemned to be
Trapped inside
The stormy monster's pit with me

She took the boy
And turned his head so I could see
The strangle marks
Her charge was dead as dead could be

In all your greatness (all your greatness)
In all your words (all your words)
