Waters Again 04:02
[verse 1] Leave this road behind It ain’t headed where I like It ain’t headed where I like [verse 2] Captured by its wandering way I ain’t taking it no more I ain’t taking it no more [verse 3] Swallowed in the waters again I won’t evey be alone I won’t every be alone

Migrations 01:35

[verse 1] Forget the fever found you Take a look at the emptiness In the air just before it’s there On your tongue [verse 2] Let the sea surround you We might as well get used to it It’s in the wave just before it breaks On your tongue and... [chorus] Down your spine, and you rise And you hold her like it’s the last time And her face oh it’s changed But you love it how the mystery stays [verse 3] Let yourself get down to, another level For the sake of your soul It’s your eye, turning with the tide Down in your lungs and... [chorus] Down your spine, and you rise And you hold her like it’s the last time And her face oh it’s changed But you love it how the mystery stays [chorus] Down your spine, and you rise And you hold her like it’s the last time And her face oh it’s changed But you love it how the mystery stays

Slide Away 03:47
[Verse 1] It’s already the way it’s gonna end up And it’s all I can do to keep it there What could my fascination say About this sliding way? [Chorus] Thought I knew, thought I cared Thought I was so much at the time Thought I’d been there and back but I guess I’ll have to try and try again, oh try again [Verse 2] It’s already pulling at the seam And it won’t take too much longer What should I say about it now? Now that it’s breaking down [Chorus] Thought I knew, thought I cared Thought I was so much at the time Thought I’d been there and back but I guess I’ll have to try and try again, oh try again [Verse 3] It’s already passing under me And I can’t think why I’d stop it now What should I see in what you say About this sliding away? [Chorus​] Thought I knew, thought I cared Thought I was so much at the time Thought I’d been there and back but I guess I’ll have to try and try again, oh try again

River I Was 03:29
The river I was Thinking I’d cross Swept me down Swept me off track a while ‘Till a ship full of diamonds Came floating down stream Picked me up set me Back on my feet I asked for the one Who’d set me free and The boys they just laughed Let me be a while ‘Cause a ship full of diamonds Ain’t got no crew Just the ones that it saves Passing on through
6.
[verse 1] Now that we are Out in the air I’ll try to tell you What I couldn’t back in there The wind is high In the blizzard of my mind A river through it runs Growing wider all the time [chorus] Overflown, over again Some old ideas just Keep coming back Tumbling through Riding on the wind Way out in the air Coming down again [verse 2] Now that we are Together alone All that confusion I see is all my own The moon is bright On the oceans of my mind Reflected is the mountain Electric in the night [chorus] Overflown, over again Some old ideas just Keep coming back Tumbling through Riding on the wind Way out in the air Coming down again… [bridge] Out of the rain And into the dream The beauty turning wild Kissing the face And the water is sweet And the fool cracks a smile

Drifters 03:38
[verse 1] Drifting off I wonder if I’ll ever cross the path you left For me Waiting on the last one To come knock me back My feet [chorus] Such a long way down What a reckless way to fall Standing on solid ground What’s a broken heart mean to you now? [verse 2] Bordering the brink Long enough to say It was time To pass it to the next one And leave all reflection Behind [chorus] Such a long way down What a reckless way to fall Standing on solid ground What’s a broken heart mean to you now? What’s a broken heart mean to you now? What’s a broken heart mean? [verse 3] Drifting off I wonder if I’ll ever cross the path you left For me...

about

Created over the course of two years, Trekker is meant to act as one continuous piece - with each movement blending into the next.

“Trekker began taking form in the fall of 2017 just after Lay Low was released. Each week we recorded demos, exploring possible avenues for the next album. It was during this time, our last winter at the farm, that Out in the Air and Sea Surrounds were written. These two songs lay the groundwork for Trekker and established our vision for the album. Its thematic core is migration, inherent movement and making sense of that power. The remaining songs were written after/during such a move, we left the farm, moved to Nelson and stared out once more.

[Rory and I] have been friends and music collaborators for almost 14 years and Trekker feels like our most unified effort yet.” says McBrien
