life, again 01:38
Bring me to life again, oh life bring me to life again
2.
I saw the moon sitting small on your shoulder shading grey, shading small on your shoulder I saw your stone saw you carve it in glory God’s own thumb saw you carving your story I saw my hands saw them quaking in aspen bleeding green they were shaking like aspen Tear the bark and dig straight to the root quaking aspen split straight to the root I saw the moon saw it bleed from your shoulder blood in the room saw it bleed from your shoulder Tail and two ears carved out in the shadow rabbit on the moon a turning shadow I saw my branch saw it reach out to meet you blood on our hands and I’ll reach out to meet you
3.
Settle down you are lost over me crimson crown watched you wash over me Spoon of cream I am all but need spooning me but I took the lead hand in your pocket my pocket your pocket Settle down but you Know me now crimson crown high up on your brow hand in my pocket your pocket my pocket
4.
(I forgot to breathe I forgot to see I planted a seed I began to breathe) Carry me through the night hold my dreams hold my mind I was a sapling in her daylight a tender sapling tender earth-mind Breathe me free from the right trust the wind break the bind No more a sapling in her daylight I’m just a sapling trusting moonlight
5.
I thought I thought I was over this I thought I thought I was over this I saw roses on her kind kind lips Callers of stone and clean hands passing filtered air Bread on the altar we’ll all have a piece to share I thought I thought I was over Callers of stone and clean hands passing filtered air Bread on the altar we’ll all have a piece to share I saw roses on her kind kind lips

ruin-ate 02:53
7.
Garden of Eve stuck on my sleeve tear off tear free burn these garden leaves Snake is a string caught in my lung can’t think can’t breathe snake inside of me Nail me to your tree snake inside of me Garden of Eve burned through my sleeve tear off tear free garden grow in me
8.
feeling 03:16
Walk away in your blue keep it from rising keep it from hiding Watch the moon how it turns phases of feeling hold off on that feeling (Cause there are new ways of feeling) Autumn tree lose your leaves gracefully falling no question just falling Mother moon hold me fast phases of feeling I’ll phase with your feeling (Cause there are new ways of feeling)
9.
Breathe me from your door I will use my feet they’re crusting in salt this doubling, see, deep You left me to sink in your waves of green I’m taking me back I’m using my feet Breathe me till I’m dry salt crust off my feet I’m taking me back I’m using my feet
10.
in the water 03:47
I run I run to the water new blood it flows through me I’m loved I’m loved in the water blue blood it flows through me In the water death dances with daylight moving through me I run I run to the water blue love it changes me
11.
prayer 03:11
(You’re afraid and you cry the salt still crusting you inside)
