A NEW APPROACH is the latest in a string of singles by Tin Boat, the "heavy folk" project from the Pacific Northwest. It's an anthem of encouragement to all those who struggle to love and understand others.


Its nice to meet you
With our judgment aside
Step out to greet you
Time for changing the tide
That time is right now
We'll let the Spirit show us how

No it's not over
Our living has just begun
No more the rover
Our wayward wanderings done
We started breaking down
But that is not a worry now

Come on let's take a ride
Way beyond the great divide
Far from what we understand
In the shadow of the promised land
We used to call it okay
Because we didn't know another way
Now we find ourselves
Looking for the words to say

Midnight, hanging over our heads
Under the streetlight all woken out of our beds
The world is oversung
Not how it was when we were young

The hope is waiting
For us to realize
We keep debating
Tend not to open our eyes
We are not accidents
Call it true or just 2 cents
