about

The Maple Trail NSW, Australia

The Maple Trail is something of a personal odyssey, a musical journey that has traversed the ravines of Sydney’s metropolitan limits and rearticulated itself across hundreds of hours of tape and performances.

Track Name: Highwire
And the Missus City caught you out
Cut like a sailor in your winter coat
I am a dreamer - I spat you out
And you get your guns of Navarone out

What could be better than sitting here
I could swear that was a sin in my ear
I cut the by-lines and holed you out
But how could I block out your black eyes
Track Name: LoveDeathGreed
If you make that show
If you make that show
That's a hard way to go
If you make that show

It's been five long years
It's been five long years
Through the creed and the creeks
It's been five long years

I'm going to kill that man
I'm going to kill that man
The letter's in the mail
I'm going to kill that man

Don't you know where you belong
Know where you belong
Won't you listen to me
Don't you know where you belong
Track Name: House Of The Healers
If you see colours I see the pattern
Can you teach me that
There is a place without weight
That comes naturally to me
If only I could write it all down
like the roots of a diagram
Marry the lines on the page
You are healer / you are a healer
You are a healer / you are a healer
But how were we to know what would go down?
And what slays you
Are the blacks of her eyes
The white of her skin
Takes you in
I called you back when I lost your track
Finally a cul-de-sac
When I lost your track
And who could know
Who could tell
In that cul-de-sac, that stolen track
How were we to know what would go down?
You see colours, I see the patterns
Can you teach me that
There is a place without weight
That comes naturally to me
Track Name: Rabbit Revisited
A cannonball in time
Watch him fade away
Saddle and reins
And a rabbit for your ride
And the Brooklyn lights
Watch them fade away
And the snow in June
Wind that eats you through
And where are you my love
In these mountains blue?
It kills your bones my love
It kills your bones
