Track Name: The Ballad of Little Beef Cramps
Amongst the Northern Lochs where the hills scrape the sky
There roamed a chosen herd with no time to die
Their souls corrupting all the life upon them blessed
So the Guides of Providence gave to them one last test.

One day a cow bore a calf of tiny size
And they all left him there to die

The calf, though tiny, had a spirit true and strong
And though it knew, it did not blame them for their wrong
Its small but rugged frame journeyed far across the land.
And his goodly nature kept him safe from all harm

But now I hear you ask "What happened to his herd?"
And here must lie a bitter word

Men cam from the south, along the pass
With rope, iron and no taste for grass
They rounded all from far and wide into their pen
Shot their bolt and no cow would ever moo again

Far away the calf now was fully grown
Although his sizer was still as though he just was born
His life was empty, he was saddened by his plight
And so with providence, he fell to sleep one night

He awoke to find a herd of his own kind
Upon an island out of time
