about

The Unknown Woodsmen Cortland, New York

Inspired by the sounds of Reggae, Blues, Funk, and Pop, The Unknown Woodsmen push the boundary of rock music, while comfortably wading in it's midst. Soaring guitar solos in many of the tunes harken back to the golden days of Rock, while thoughtfully written lyrics and infectious hooks leave an impression - BUT, as with many other delicate perceptions...only for those who are truly listening. ... more

Track Name: Swirls
We all swirl, swirl away.
It’s all we do now, everyday.
A cup of tea when adding cream,
A galaxy,
The ocean breeze.

We all swirl, swirl away…….
We all swirl, swirl away…….

It’s in your blood,
Your eyes that see,
It’s in you, and it’s in me.
A leopards spots,
A butterfly wing,
The smoke from the belly of a factory.

We all swirl, swirl away…….
We all swirl, swirl away…….

Look at your fingerprints!
The freckles on your skin and see!!
That which swirls will always be…..
That which swirls will always be…..

You're not that little wave,
Babe you are the deep blue sea.
That which swirls will always be….
That which swirls always be…..

And when you think,
“Death has come to me!”, you will see!
That which swirls will always be….
That which swirls will alwaWe all swirl, swirl away.
It’s all we do now, everyday.
Before the earth, before the sea,
That which swirls will always be.

That which swirls will always be….. (x4)
Track Name: I Am The Cosmos
A pretty girl,
With golden hair.
Stares at the stars,
She feels so small laying there.
She loves the sky at night,
It’s all so beautiful.
But deep inside,
Se wonders why,
She has to die.
But girl those stars you see,
They’re just like you and me,
They too someday will burn out.
But they just burn, into the night.
And that’s the beauty,
Them just burning, fierce and bright.

I am the cosmos,
I am the cosmos,
I am the cosmos,
I’ve been around before.
I am the thing that comes and goes,
My body dies,
A baby’s born,
A flower grows.

I hear you went,
Around the world.
Saw many colors,
Many places,
Many faces.
But did you know?
That what you see,
Is always around you,
It’s the moment, that you cannot see.
But every night,
Every place, beneath the stars.
Your haunted by the ghost,
Of who you really are.

I am the Cosmos,
You are the Cosmos,
We are the Cosmos,
We’ve been around before.
I am the thing that comes and goes.
My body dies,
A baby’s born,
A flower grows.

I am, I am the cosmos.
You are, you are the cosmos.
We are, we are the cosmos,
We’ve been around before.
And I am, I am the thing that comes and it goes.
My body dies, oh no,
But a baby’s born,
And a flower grows.
And a tree lets its seed, loose in the wind.
And the, wind blows the clouds,
and makes it rain, and there’s a tree again.
And I eat the fruit that,
Comes from, comes from the tree.
So don’t that mean that the
Sun, and the wind, and the clouds are a part of me?

Are you starting to see (Oh oh ohhhhh)
Are you starting to see (Oh oh ohhhhh)Are you starting to see (Oh oh ohhhhh)
That I am It and It is me. (x2)
Track Name: Sing Slowly
Adrift on the sea,
With only stars, to accompany me.
Could be the past,
Or the future,
Or between…….
My eyes looking out,
My heart beat still.
And of the sweet ocean breeze,
I breathe my fill….
And I could call myself,
A prisoner here, but then again,
The stars have never shown so bright.
And the sea is at peace tonight.
Suppose I could row,
But I really don’t know where,
And the moons playing games with the sea……..

I’m right where I’m supposed to be.

My sweet Anabelle,
Forgive me.
I won’t be coming home,
Best you forget me.
And if my memory haunts your dreams;
And if you cry out in your sleep;
Will you do this love for me?
Take a lantern, to the beach…..

And sing slowly,
Sing slowly,
Sing slowly,
To the sea….. (x3)

Time will creep on.
The days they will flow.
The sting it will fade.
And your sun, it will show.
And I may be gone;
But when you're by the sea,
You’ll hear my song
If you listen for me.
Listen for me.

My sweet Anabelle,
Forgive me.
I won’t be coming home,
Best you forget me.
And if my memory haunts your dreams;
And if you cry out in your sleep;
Will you do this love for me?
Take a lantern, to the beach…..

And sing slowly,
Sing slowly,
Sing slowly,
To the sea….. (x3)
Track Name: Are You My Angel
You flutter like a butterfly;
Just like a dream,
Dancing before my eyes.
I watch you like a mountain lion.
And you go on, drifting by.
The wind that your blowing in,
Is taking you away from me.
And it’s a, strong wind,
As far as I can see.

And I’ve been on this
Mountain for so long.
The view is beautiful,
but it’s never warm.
And the sirens song your smile sings,
Makes me wish I hadn’t lost my wings,
Because now it’s up to you,
If I will, ever feel at home……..

Are you my angel?
Come to set me free.
You should come down.
And baby we will see.
If you’re my angel.
If you’re my angel.

And if my hope,
Has any effect on the wind.
You will, be coming my way again.
And believe me when I say,
I will be yours, always.

But girl, I won’t be your fool in the rain.
And if, all my heart can predict is pain.
Then like any animal, I’ll wander away (x2)

I said girl! I won’t be your fool in the rain
And if, all my heart can predict is pain.
Then like, any animal, I’ll put my
Tail between my legs, and I’ll wander away.

Are you my angel?
Come to set me free.
You should come down.
And baby we will see.
If you’re my angel.
If you’re my angel. (x2)
