Like feathers wrapped in gold
Like cyclones kiss the ground

Track Name: One Wave
one wave
burns its song into another
and there are no graves
to mark each wave
one mouth
burns its song into another
and there are no wakes
to mourn each embrace
our eyes
burn their songs into the sunrise
where there are no wakes
where there are no graves

with cold wild torches
we baptize our longing
send it back like the waves
caressing and dying
i'm waiting for the night to fall
to scatter me over the earth
like dreaming embers
without hope
or remembrance
just falling
softly falling
Track Name: A Place in the Sun
a place in the sun
a place i dreamed once
a place where i'll be warm
a place in the sun

like palm trees in the snow
like feathers wrapped in gold
like cyclones kiss the ground
we're taking off

a place in the sun
a place i dreamed once
a place where i'll be warm
a place in the sun

bright sunflower fields
a pattern on the wall
gray hospital yard
gulls taking off

a place in the sun
a place i dreamed once
a place where i'll be warm
a place in the sun

so hold me in your arms
break a spell that's held so long
this time i want to be inside
not looking on

a place in the sun
a place i dreamed once
a place where i'll be warm
a place in the sun
Track Name: Cousin Mary
cousin mary
oh say, does she sing
like a raven or a dove?
i don't know i didn't hear her

i sleep on the hillside
snow birds are flying
out of the moonlight
into my eyes

sunstroke face
of heaven raves
purple with rage

silver rails dig
like talons of birds
into the dirt

cousin mary
oh say, does she sing
like a raven or a dove?
i don't know i didn't hear her

the well on the hillside
it gurgles prophecies
it's a drag
it won't leave me in peace

it says i'm a weed
says i'm a bird
with metal feet
it tells me i'm an acorn
fallen in the street

and it speaks of endless currents
maelstroms with wings
it breathes heavy disaster
and man, i'm not listening

cause now the night is balancing
upon the hillside
brush me off mister crow
i think i'm dying

cousin mary
oh say, does she sing
like a raven or a dove?
i don't know i didn't hear her
