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

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

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

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

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

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.

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
