Track Name: Child Ghost
Child ghost
follow me around the house
hide in my coats

Face of glimmer stone
soft as smoke, all alone
Gold air and spring wafting through your hair

Lull me to sleep
for a night I dream in your moonbeams
soon you’ll scatter in the morning light

Child Ghost
Where’s your home for me?

Sometimes I am old
then there’s you
and the places I’ve never been before

Child Ghost
Where’s your home for me?
Track Name: The Well
I think so much I should be
medicated for something
in the woods there is a well
deeper than the breath I’ve felt

Oh my, I think you have the devil’s tongue
my, dancing with your hands that always want
to hold my cold flesh

My lungs fill with water’s lust
spitting in the holy cup
see his face is surfacing
and my fears stop hurrying

Oh my, I think you have the devil’s tongue
my, dancing with your hands that always want
to hold my cold flesh

You think you’ve filled my body
you think you’ve filled my lungs
you think you’ve filled my body and my lungs
Oh my

Underwater love is true
in the stone and kissed in blue
in the woods there is a well
guarded from the clouds of hell

Maybe there’s a place for us
in the well I’m good enough
come to me ungodly trust
in the well I’m good enough
maybe there’s a place for us

You think you’ve filled my body
you think you own my lungs
you think you’ve filled my body and my lungs
Oh my
Track Name: A Knife That Meant Well
Translucent man you’re sand through my hands
turned to glass
broke you in half glass cuts like a knife
like a knife

a knife that meant well you tell me meant well

My thoughts on you are starting to bleed
would you sew them up seam by seam

What once was sweet turns bitter in age
I carry the man from place to place
place to place

petty pace from place to place to place

I though you were a cheat to rob me of my sleep
I curse and wear the heavy night
would you ease my tongue would you comfort me?

Heaven knows I try to take out that knife
Track Name: Silence, Silence
Mother hums father never speaks
clothes are cotton words are gasoline
I could be the man who never speaks
silence, silence insulates me

You brought me to the clouds a-clearing
I’m so cold then the frost leaves through my teeth, I speak:
Please be the man and I will speak for you

I put on my walking shoes and I go for miles
I don’t know what I will lose but I am trying

I will be the man no more of me
to my dear ignite these weary feet
flames and lakes and mountains I will be
I’m walking and singing who loved me?

Flames and lakes and mountains I will be
Who loved me?

I put on my walking shoes and I go for miles
I don’t know what I will lose but I am trying

I will talk and I will muse and I’ll fill your quiet
I don’t know what I will lose but I am trying

I put on my walking shoes and I’ll fill your quiet
I don’t know what I will lose but I am trying
