Track Name: dancin on the porch
open me up
leave me on the porch
for the season
i'll live here
in the warmth

take your time waking up
you were an egg in my nest last night

you slept so sound
but i
i didn't sleep at all

when it rains you know it will pour
and we'll find time to stay inside
building pillow forts
chasing a different kind
of warmth
Track Name: the pendle witch child
i watched them fear
what they couldn't understand
i watched them fear
what they didn't know

they accused you of the deed
and tested you terribly
i watched them drown you slow
and let the blood from your dogs throat

you watched your blood betray you
from the witness stand
a child's word carries such a heavy burden
these days

i was there when the flame licked
your skin from the bone
and i couldn't help but cry
as the smoke rose
Track Name: keeping the garden
you don't gotta go just yet
tonight's been honey in my tea
a drop of sweetness
in the bitter decisions we made

you don't gotta go just yet
it feels just like it used to
our bodies damn the rivers we sweat
we sweat

you don't gotta go just yet
plow your fingers down my spine
take fistfuls of my gardens
their in full bloom for you

you don't gotta go just yet
but if you do thats ok
the nettle stings as it nurtures
and i'll always love you
Track Name: from the attic
there is an urge
to collect the dead and the rotting
i found it in a drawer
with the dust and all the memories
of playing all alone
in the backyard with the sticks
my puppy was a hound
and i wish she didn't have to quit
with every new track
a moth flaps her wings

the pieces they change
but the game it stays the same
it took me this long
and sometimes i know its too late
"an thats how it goes kid
when your rebuilding the spine"
exclaimed the scalpel as it dug into my hide

when the holes are all patched
i hope that we still leak
and seep through the mud
to the roots of the old trees
we'll get curled in the knots
and the rings will write of us

we'll get curled in the knots
and the rings will write of us
this time
Track Name: memorlude
please, take the load off your spine

go back
your roots will show you
where you've never known
that memory came to soon

memories come to soon
Track Name: jackson's headed to florida
hold down the fort
hold down the fort

the bullets are commin in the windows
hold down the fort

hold down the fort
hold down the fort, my love

the bullets are commin in the windows
i caught one
beneath my eye

hold down the fort
hold down the fort, my love

the bullets are the rain today
so many problems
i have yet to fix
please don't take me
i'm not ready
i'm not ready

hold down the fort
Track Name: warm here
snow falls out the window
and i remember when i felt small
in your arms
in your arms
Track Name: lioness (songs: ohia)
it is for me
the eventual truth
of that look
of the lioness to her man across the nile

it is that look of the lioness
to her man across the nile

wanna feel my heart break
if it must break
in your jaws

i want you to lick my blood
off your paws

you can't get here fast enough
you can't get here fast enough
you can't get here fast enough

i will swim to you
i will swim to you

whether you save me
or savage me
i want my last look to be
the moon in your eyes

want my heart to break
if it must break
in your jaws

you can't get here fast enough
you can't get here fast enough
you can't get here fast enough

i will swim to you
