Oh, the winter sleeps Oh the winter weather weeps All through this long night Under duvets of white Singing lullabies Oh the tulips taste Oh the tulips part in May The sugar of springtime, The delicate days of life, Throwing me a line Oh, let it grow; the nature of things, the nature it sings Oh, let it grow Oh the crickets creak Oh the crickets scream conceit All through this long night, Echoing rays of light, Like a time machine Oh the leaves ablaze Some are flaming, some decay Crackling fire dry Cackles ‘you’ll soon be mine’ I pray for rain Oh, let it fall; the nature of things, the nature it stings Oh, let it fall Oh, the nature of things, the nature it stings Oh, let it fall

Front Door 02:22
If I ever spend the autumn with the same front door, oh that’d be the day oh that’d be the day, cause I never spend the autumn with the same front door anymore, anymore Breathe, push me with a steady hand, weary lungs yielding to the land. Hold tightly onto what I know, keep them close as the wind still blows If I ever spend the autumn with the same front door, oh that’d be the day oh that’d be the day, cause I never spend the autumn with the same front door anymore, anymore Leave though it’s only barely used, bury low, tunnel escape to youth. Keep on, keep on, even though we’re poisoning water deep and honey sweet I’ve been calling winter long - nobody around to echo my song If I ever spend the autumn with the same front door, oh that’d be the day oh that’d be the day, cause I never spend the autumn with the same front door anymore, anymore

New Eyes 03:43
Heart skips, new lips parted - pardon Same sky, new eyes salted - uncharted Always been this way Unknown till today Took my breath away I was so afraid Shake hands, understand meaning - revealing Same land, alien plan - wasting, replacing Always been this way Unknown till today Took my breath away I was so afraid Run, run, home again It can’t be done with a body of one Whole over sum Look to the moon; it too takes two Return to earth to be the Sun, sun, hope again

Sister 03:21
Eyes running dry, frozen in my swaying tracks and you see the things I lack. Leave me to lie crying in our parents’ room, I’ll join you in the kitchen soon where I’ll finish disappointing you Oh, Sister if you only knew the things I wish that I could do. I’d roll into the garden and I’d pick a bunch of flowers for you. I’d pay my fortune to the road though all we’d ever do was lose. But Sister if you only knew the things I wish that I could do Roll into a town and my eyes are shifting and my hands are shaking. Pull you back down - are the plans all in a row? Realize that I just need to know, but honestly I just want to go home Oh, Sister if you only knew the things I wish that I could do. I’d roll into the garden and I’d pick a bunch of flowers for you. I’d pay my fortune to the road though all we’d ever do was lose. But Sister if you only knew the things I wish that I could do

Wake 04:02
Finished playing Sign my name friend Feel resistance See me broken I’m hiding away I don’t know what to say Cause you’re pushing me away When I’m not ready for the wake Stepping duet Silent moment You’re to the left Here on separate I’m hiding away Cause there’s nothing left to say When you’re pushing me away And I’m turning for the wake
6.
Buffalo 04:06
Buffalo bungalow We lay below, our hearts aglow With a buffalo Lions den, arriving when We need a friend to co-pretend In a lion’s den In the hive, spin and dive We are alive in overdrive We hide Honeycomb, chromosome With dad and mom but we’re never home In a honeycomb
7.
Pull me under, darling, back into the lake where we can lay still, sleeping to rushing water sounds until I wake and I am drowned Lovers who linger in the waking moonlight, opening tenderly limbs, I sing like coyote calls in the dark blue morning with meltwater lungs and the fear of filling - and I’m never leaving home. Slowly reaching through my fingers, I don’t want to be alone but I’m terrified of swallowing shores. So kiss me as if I were sleeping; be gentle with my body, I don’t want to go How can I leave this house and home, How can I leave this house alone
8.
The Spill 02:44
When I rise before the sky in a place I call home but I know it’s not mine - I’ve tried and I’ve tried but I just grow tired, the foolish ways I’m staying alive My window has watched me grow but it’s been years and oh, I’ve hardly been home and I’m trying to stop from growing old Hold me up, keep me still and I’ll wait patient for the spill
9.
I’m going mad I’m going mad My mind is had I’m going mad Radio transmits over lines out of sight Radiating through my mind Gramophone is off, the pipe and sink’s enough The broadcast brought to you by war it soars Requiem in Greek, a reverie I speak Radiating through my hypnagogic sleep Dreaming in tongues, the blood is in my lungs The broadcast brought to you by war it soars I’m going mad I’m going mad My mind is had I’m going mad The east coast village chilled by voices still unseen They wound but never bruise, kill but never bleed I heard it in the clothing line, now I’m the one hung out to dry Thank you and goodbye, goodbye, goodbye I’m going mad I’m going mad My mind is had I’m going mad We mean no harm, we’re just passing on by, Waving hello on our way through the sky
10.
Over the shoulder Out at the pier Etching the moonlight In the crevice of tears I saw the sky scrape The water below We’re molding the landscape But don’t know where to go The courage of autumn To strip to the bone Believing in wheeling And feeling the flow If I had branches And roots I would sway And brace for the bitter Till spring comes again For now I am weeping The moon waning west It follows my route Or rather what’s left Where I am going Is all just for show This evening a trial For the coming of snow
