Track Name: Make it Rain
High time walking on river
Awake in a dream but you feel no sound
Bound up shake til you shiver
Make waves, make waves

Eyes out to the light between the clouds
Where it fades away

Daylight mind over matter
Sing the waves to stay
High time skippin' on breeze
My laughter's gonna make it rain


Eyes out to the light between the clouds
Where it fades away

Daylight mind over matter
Sing the waves to stay
High time skippin' on breeeze
My laughter's gonna make it rain
Track Name: In the Company of Crows
A darkness is wandering lone
Waiting for a turn in my skin
The waters afloat on my bones
Whisper where they'd like me to go
My darkness wandering cold
I let it in when its speaks as the wind
Feathers in seven tones unending

Stellar Jay
Your'e awake
All your own have flown
All your own have flown

Stellar Jay
Your'e Awake
In the company of crows
In the company of crows

Ambient hum lost in my tounge
Tear it from my teeth like the wild ones
Bleeding out like a wound unbound
We move in the search of shelter
The hunger that fear doesn't know
Is picking at the bones
The hunter I meet with my bow
Track Name: Dig a Home
This Vessel mustn't be sought to keep
belongs to the timeless sea
To chasms of tumbled concrete
steel bending effortlessly

I don’t mind sleeping outside

Overflow by the bags you hold
in your folds so warm and still
the beauty been given is taken away
in giving taking will

I don’t mind sleeping outside

Silently dancing the mountaintops
dew trickling from my veins
elbows deep in the soil now
i’m digging myself a home

I don’t mind sleeping outside
Track Name: On the Inside
Have you seen her?
Did you see through her?
Comes and goes with the wind
Hardly gives what you bargain for, but I adore her

Did you see it, did you really see it at all
As it came running for the prison wall
Shot it down
Caved like it had died before

Caged up, drug down
They keep it all on the inside

Take her home,
Won't you make it easy
This was really supposed to be a treaty
In taking more, you waste what you control

In the moonlight,
I thought i saw the shine of the knife
A broken rose without the light in her eyes
Just, another angry bull, with a thorn in his side

Broke through, and they're angry with you
They keep themselves out of sight
Caged up, drug down
They keep it all on the inside

I saw it happen twenty times over
White rabbit getting closed in the corner
Nobody turns a way they just sit there and grin
Did you hear that?
I thought i heard footsteps
Alice didn't hear em at all
Was it all in my head?

Ever since they
Broke through
They're angry with you
They keep themselves out of sight
Caged up, drug down
They keep it all on the inside
Track Name: Traced in Fire
Carve a map into the earth
Trembling stones under wheels and bones
Smell of cedar smoke upon the wind
The dipper pours into the mouths of lovers

Traced in fire
Orchids all spinning spirals
The moon is falling "en le rouge"
Our eyes are fixed unto the sky
Softly were guided by a tune in beams of light

Carried from our bodies on a wing
To the waters edge
A pool of stars
Felt around until we found our skin
And we've come to know where the patterns are
Track Name: Glue
I dreamed i made myself a fortune
Spent it all on booze and glue
Stuck my hands together
Poured my bottles in the bathtub
Jumped right in before lacing down my shoes

Bracing myself for the downward spiral
Now dribbling down down the drain
Embracing your time hear living and breathing
Might offer you a strange sort of grip on anything

This one's for Victor and endless farmers
Their fruits taken with their names
One rises up to even out the waters
Play cold war fear like an ancient game

I saw for myself a city in the garbage
It brought my heart to a boil
I sat in in the backseat hostage
i can not escape what my own have soiled.

Onward and endlessly we strive for survival
without going, going, gone insane
Embracing your'e time here living and breathing
Might offer you a strange sort of grip on anything.
Track Name: Hard Winds
If I knew a song that was all I was able
it’d be deep in my palms like a wave to the rocks
I see you running fierce with the teeth of a sable
till your’e at my window with the skeletons stars
Right as I stand in my new set of skin
You see me breaking it in when you find me up there
A sound doesn’t stop its only taking a hostage
in the silence that lives above the moving air

One and One another gone to 3 stars in the sky
Trace a ray to an outer place when starlight goes to hide
Arm and arm we brave the storm that’s gathered in our eyes
On and on another gone
A thousand tons of blood, and bone, and ice

Familiar place with the will of a loved one
I remember the taste, the time, and the walls
If i let it take me into the warm room
where everything holds on and everything stalls
Away with the birds, the bells, and the neighbors
and into the well for a couple of days
I’m there to rehearse what would never be made
Into anything more than a familiar phrase.

One and One another gone to 3 stars in the sky
Trace a ray to an outer place when starlight goes to hide
Arm and arm we brave the storm that’s gathered in our eyes
On and on another gone
A thousand tons of blood, bone, and Ice

If I saw the beast that did death a favor
and ran to the sky with the blue in my veins
Hard winds took the skin and the marrow,
all of the building and the castles of kings
I’m happier then having read the ending
tracing the ups and the downs of a line.
If i was ready for the static that held me
rebuilding myself with whatever I find.

One and One another gone to 3 stars in the sky
Trace a ray to an outer place when starlight goes to hide
Arm and arm we brave the storm that’s gathered in our eyes
On and on another gone
A thousand tons of blood, bone, and ice
