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”
