    Shot and recorded live on Pender Island BC, Where the Oceans Meets the Sky: A Visual EP is a journey into new music with Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk.

    The project consists of six songs filmed in six different locations across Pender Island over the course of five days. The concept was to release new music in a way that would be complimentary to the next full length record, instead of taking away from it.

    All audio was recorded live on location, and no over-dubs or studio tricks were added.

Track Name: Through Your Eyes
You were once full of life
Where on earth did it go
Why’d you let it leave you here alone
Among the silence

Somewhere in between
Who you were and who you wanted to be
Something got a hold of you
And nothing else mattered

Yes I tried, oh yes I tried
To see the world through your eyes
But your eyes, your tired eyes
Have lost their fire, have lost their light

Sing your songs again
You will make it through to the end
Count it all joy, my friend
That this is momentary

Yes I tried, oh yes I tried
To see the world through your eyes
But your eyes, your tired eyes
Have lost their fire, have lost their light

Won’t you try, oh won’t you try
To see the world through new eyes
See how the ocean meets the sky
Watch the stars light up the night
Track Name: St Lawrence
I found an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River
Where everything I knew became clearer
As I walked between the land and the sea
I watched the stars at night and hid in the wood in the afternoon
Forgetting all the things that I had to do
All I knew was what surrounded me

And all this time I never felt so alive
And all this time I never felt so alive
Track Name: Fragile
We are fragile needing much
We are delicate to the touch
We are temporary at best
Unaware of what’s next

We float through space and time
Transient hearts align

We are wealthy, given much
Keeping all but some to ourselves
Hear the call to abandon self
But we can’t get outside ourselves

Fear of the undiscovered
Locks us inside
Leave all your inhibitions
Embrace this life

Leave what you once knew behind
Take what is left see what you’ll find
Track Name: Changing
Everyone is changing, changing
Nothing stays the same for very long
Everything around is moving, moving
I don’t even know where I am right now

The highway takes me takes me
Away from familiar places
Where I left so many memories
I don’t even know how to begin again

Always moving, never stopping
Always leaving, never staying

Behind me are so many miles
Ahead is where I’ll find myself
Track Name: Barren Land
From far away it’s a vast expanse
Of land that meets the sky
But up close is a stream in the coulee
And plenty of places to hide

From far away I can see your face
Clear as the moonlight
But up close your face is a desert
You’ve given up the fight

Oh barren land
Dig your wells deep into the earth
Oh, water from
Deep inside will bring you back to life

You’re looking back on days past
When life was a generous soul
But since then it’s offered you nothing
But you haven’t given your all

Oh barren land
Dig your wells deep into the earth
Oh, water from
Deep inside will bring you back to life
Oh, lift your eyes
To the sky to where your help comes from
Oh, let your soul
Be revived and let your heart be light
Track Name: Wooden Heart
Oh, your wooden heart
Doesn’t beat the way it used to
You lost it by the seashore
And it weathered into driftwood

What brought you to the sea,
Were you looking far away
Or staring at the depths
Holding onto something

We’ll never be
Really truly free until we
Let go of the world
And all it holds for something more

Look beyond the sky
Past the waves, past the tide
Someday your wooden arteries
Will beat with life again

Oh your wooden heart
Your wooden heart
The ocean, oh
It pulled you apart
