Track Name: What Should We Leave for the Monster Tonight?
what should we leave for the monster tonight?
a bowl of mushrooms and milk
what should we leave for the monster tonight?
a bowl of mushrooms and milk

out of waste bodies rise
out of flesh nectars bloom

make me a home in a whale's jawbone
beached centuries ago
all my songs are fossils
all my words are so old
I found my hands in a bank of snow
I found my eyes in a pile of coins on the road
when the sun's tentacles reach down from heaven and thaw my frozen tongue
I'll have a voice that's all my own

what should we leave for the monster tonight?
a bowl of mushrooms and milk
what should we leave for the monster tonight?
a bowl of mushrooms and milk

out of waste bodies rise
out of flesh nectars bloom
Track Name: Two Clay Birds
two clay birds baked in the sun
two clay birds, one stone
two clay birds baked in the sun
two clay birds, one stone

two clay birds sing a red song
one stone bird sings none
two clay birds sing a red song
one stone bird sings none

two clay birds fly to the moon
one stone bird stays home
two clay birds fly to the moon
one stone bird stays home

two clay birds crack in the sun
one stone bird left whole
two clay birds crack in the sun
one stone bird left whole

peel open the drum
there's no beating heart
hollow spaces sing so loud
peel open the drum
there's no beating heart
hollow spaces sing so loud

peel open the drum
rivers flow through my palm
the wide open sky is your home
