Track Name: Isaac's Song
I’ve gone in I’ve gone in I’ve gone in
I’ve gone in I’ve gone in I’ve gone in...
Track Name: Pity Dance
I’m leaving out the parts I don’t like

Oh I ought to learn to learn

I ought to learn I can’t please myself every time
I say bring me sunflowers

And bring me a landscape of clouds and rain
And let the sky give up

Her many heavy hammered warnings

I’ll take her warnings

But you’d assumed

When I left mommy would wash my body
Back to you

Back to you

How many things

How many things

Can I say to you

And expect shock horror
shock horror
shock horror hallelujah

To descend again in sweet oblation

Your god’s a lion recently fed, drowsy
And the body the body the body the body
It waits for obliteration

Come on fire

Don’t leave me waiting for the world to replace me
Replace me

Oh replace me

I’ll tell the truth

I have been sleeping with the lights on
Ever since I left you
Since I left you
Track Name: Creekmouth
A thousand people cling to bottles

To powdered babies and leather bibles

Oh I’ll find it right by me

And I’m gonna throw

My body

Make sweet the water once bitter to me

I’m gonna hush til it’s done
I’m gonna hush til it’s done

A thousand people cling to bottles

To powdered babies and leather bibles
Open your creekmouth

Your cankered waters

Rising out

Rising out

You’re rising out

You’re rising out

You’re rising out

I’m gonna hush til it’s done
I’m gonna hush til it’s done
Track Name: Pigs
I’m through accepting what you offer me
Oh what I done what I done

To keep this mystery

This is the night of reckoning
And it don’t seem right to keep to me

And I’m leaving out the parts I don’t believe in
Oh I’m restless as a geiser

Like a blind animal in water

Oh arm of the devil
Fool of the devil

And arm of the dreamer
The dreamer the dreamer
About to rain

Bind and unbind starlings
Cursive with litanies
About to rain

Overtake overtake

Like out at the pond when the storm came marching
Marching in


And play turns to play turns to play

Marks the day

Marks the day

And it marks the day

So I’m done leaving out my family In the rain
Track Name: BMB
From in your car

We saw the fire

And we could feel it on our skin
Slick licorice road

Our glassy eyes

Shared in the argument of
Undefended light

Oh did you say
What did you say
Oh did you say
What did you say
Track Name: Thanksgiving Moon
Raise your arms for victory
Drink to love

Drink to me

We’ll start over
We’ll start new this time
With all stars

All stars and shadow
And we’re all stars
Yes yes I know
Oh yes I know
Around a thanks
Giving moon

A misty light imprecise and still
From a jagged bright

Sickle moon

The big man stared him down
In the middle afternoon

Hid the blood and the metal
With his hands
With his hands
With his hands
With his hands

Oh is that a star
Oh shallow victory
Is that a star

Oh shallow victory
Is that a star

Oh shallow victory
Is that a star

Oh shallow victory
Track Name: Fire of Birds
Waiting for sun in the morning
My eyes on the ceiling

A fire of birds brilliantly burns
And the body knows
Before I know

And didn’t we

Didn’t we pretend?

Oh you and your christ kite
Caterwauling in the air

Coarse and feral

And even so you let me go

I couldn’t charm my way back to you

Oh late lady night

Oh lake lake at night

Oh slouched ghosts of light

And your storm shoulders bright In the bloomed lilac booms

I prayed for peace

Where the lampare cinders
Burned the trees

Still I can half see you
I can half see you

In the yard

In the rain
In your wellington boots

Where we danced like we were on fire
Where we danced like we were on fire
Like the birds we spoke with fire

We danced like we’re all on fire...
Track Name: Morning Glory Cloud
I only realized today

I thought I felt something like a shift of weight
I have been hiding

I have been hiding

Oh dear divining ray

I have to breathe

I have to breathe

I have a dream and it’s gone
Cathode lit clouds rolling on
Oh did you call
Did you call my name

I have been hiding

And New York’s behind me

Oh come on now

Oh come on now

Oh come on now roll over everything

No you won’t catch me

I know this street

And I and I and I

I’ve got my own policies

I’ve got my own policies

But the divining ray is threatening
To illuminate illuminate everything
Track Name: GMS
Send me resend me
Track Name: Braid of Voices
When the ghost of me refuse to speak
And in my dreams I watch TV

I’m blue inside

I’m the blue light
I’m blue inside
I’m the blue light
I’m blue inside
I’m the blue light

And I need this town

This white town

And I’m the red blood of this white town
Parade in someone else’s crown
Parade in someone else’s crown
Parade in someone else’s crown
Parade in someone else’s crown

From the back of my head tied
To the back of my head tied
From the back of my head tied
To the back of my head tied
To the back of my head tied
To the back of my head tied...
A braid of voices

“David, David”
Track Name: Around The Lion Legs
Once more

Once more

Once more

You asked me why all these years

All these years I’ve everything from you

Why now
Why now
You asked me why I tried to ruin everything
Everything everything...

These things they cannot be taken back
I know I know

These things they cannot be taken back
I know I know....
Track Name: Just Once
What did I say

To send you a rumbling past me

I was afraid I would lose you someday
Like I lost me that day

In all my dreams

Your face is hidden from me
Formless in some velvety shade
What were you hiding from

Who were you hiding from

I wanted to know
And what is done

I can’t leave it alone

I have to know I have to know I have to know
And just once

Just once just once

Did you love me once

I’ve been ready

What did I say

Oh no what did I say
And what did you want
What did you want
What did you want

A life in the dark

A life in the dark

And what is done

I can’t leave it alone

I didn’t know I didn’t know

But just once just once just once
Did you love me once
And just once just once just once
Did you love me once?

I have been ready
For so long

For so long

For so long
And I’m not aloud the pity
Did you ever once pretend
Pretend

Pretend
And you’re out there bar hopping
And the label men are calling
Who’s next who’s next

And I’m fat and drowsy
And I’m fat and drowsy
And I’m fat and drowsy
And I’m fat and drowsy

I’ll make you a bet

You knew it would wash away

In the crying and gush

And the new england rain

But I’m not afraid

I’m not afraid

And just once just once just once
I could love you once

And just once just once just once
I could love you once

She loved me...
Track Name: Abraham's Song (Firebird)
Metal roof metal blood
Hide the boots

Hide the mud

In the car
In her yard

In the blanket

In the barn

If I could hold you in my arms

Quiet boy
Quiet boy
Laughing dog
Secret prayer
Firebird
Firebird
Firebird

I’m the water
I’m the prow
I’m the never
I’m the now
Heavy Hammer
Heavy Ghost
Firebird
Firebird
Firebird
Firebird
Firebird
Firebird
Firebird
