A song about tenacity, compassion and the strength of the human spirit, ‘Compass’ is inspired by a person’s sense of home and security. The lengths to which love and care will reach. Two virtues drawn out in recent times by strangers being driven away from familiar and comfortable surroundings as a consequence of forces outside their direct control. Displacement due to war, detachment or disunion by borders. The reality for many of navigating survival in the face of opposing interests. It could happen to anyone and we as a band feel it’s important to embrace understanding, reach out and welcome in the experiences and perspectives of others.


We've been earning and losing points
Since the day we were born, like everyone
Sitting boats behind solid glass
Ready to save the sacred, aside cast

Isn't it obvious that the compass
Is pointing at us

We are all responsible
Not to follow off a cliff
'Cause people's pride and dignity
Is a right not a gift

Isn't it obvious that the compass
Is pointing overnight
From a bobcat to an arrow in flight
