Track Name: Birthrite
Birthrite:

Blanket all the wildwood flowers
Shadows come
Colored by the morning hours
And water drops

Gorgeous is the songbird's smile
When she's happy
Flying, for a little while
she's not lonely

Dance tippy top upon the wind
Twirl all your feathers in the sun
Yes, death has just begun
Yes, death has just begun

Gathers every breath she has
fills hollow bones
She's free when she flies
It's her birthrite

Dance tippy top upon the wind
Twirls all your feathers in the sun
Yes, death has just begun
Yes, death has just begun
Track Name: Phosphate and Sugar
Remember how I loved you
And You loved me right back
We were both collapsing clouds
Floating fingers in the dark
We’d make out in the cold
Our lips like sunny days
Firey rays upon our tongues

The world no longer with us
Just the sounds out in the night
Leaning on your fathers pickup
Tangled up and holding tight
I’d look up you were so tall
The snow began to fall
Flakes melting on my lids

The moon was crystal clear
Beaming light up the fields
And we knew our time was up
At the sound of my dads truck
Charging through the snow
Changing atoms as it go
breaking our fingers up

Oh, we were so young
Everything had just begun
So sure of who we’d be
And where we’d find each other
Just phosphate and sugar
Glowing in the dark

We’d risk the angry breakup
father yelling at the make out
It was half past the hour
dad yelled the ball was over
Breaking through the sharpening air
Headlights through the snow
Causing a milky way between us

Riding back in silence
Dad scowling at the wheel
Fingers rubbing out the leather
Plotting out my sentence
Outside I spot a snow owl
Hiding in a drift
Great glowing saucers in the dark

I thought about the next year
When this whole place would be spark
Just the current of a memory
Flitting about inside the dark
Passing years into the future
No space for starry nights
The first sadness of the flight

Oh we were so young
Everything had just begun
So sure of who we’d be
And where we’d find each other

Just phosphate and sugar
Just phosphate and sugar
Just phosphate and sugar

Glowing in the dark
Glowing in the dark
Track Name: Haunted
Why do you come back
Stand before me
I've given you warnings
Still you open up your arms
And I'm charmed
What's the harm
Of taking a little rest with you
For a while

There's always a memory
That hides in the daylight
The presents haunted glance
What's the chance
Or harm
Of taking a little rest with you
For a while

And this is my time
This is my time
Maybe you should leave me alone
These are my thoughts
And these are my things
Maybe you should leave them alone

If I hold all my breath in
Slow down my heartbeat
I can almost feel your arms
And I'm charmed
What's the harm
Of taking a little rest with you
For a while

And this is my time
This is my time
Maybe you should leave me alone
These are my thoughts
And these are my things
Maybe you should leave them alone
Track Name: Long Day Into The Night
Listen to that foghorn
Keeps me up at night
Never mind the needle
Or the twitching of my hands

Gonna walk right through that water
Let the vapors wet my bones
Fold me, Hold me safely
In the radiation fog

Guess there's never any leaving
When you're stuck here 'til it's done
I had something with me
But I lost it in the drug

Oh it's a long day
Into the night
Oh it's a long, long day
And I'm so lonely
Oh baby, hear me when I Cry
I'm so lonely
Oh baby hear me when I cray
About the days gone by and by and by
And bye bye

Take a toke of whiskey
You're so dry you're passing out
And I've still got a story
I've forgotten all about

See here behind my eyes
Glossy, doped and happy
There's a movie running wild
And I'm a hopeful child

Guess there's never any leaving
When you're stuck here 'til it's done
I had something with me
But I lost it in the drug

Oh it's a long day
Into the night
Oh it's a long, long day
And I'm so lonely
Oh baby, hear me when I Cry
I'm so lonely
Oh baby hear me when I cray
About the days gone by and by and by
And bye bye
Track Name: Wanted Man
It's easier to love he said
As he held her in his arms
But I've been a bad, bad man
I've done some people a lot of harm
And I can see the devil
He's walking like a king
Holding you I know that
He hasn't won a thing

The clock ticked, a beating heart
As he held on a little tighter
As if his skin could melt with his
And they could stay that way forever
Leaning back to see him
Her eyes were bright and clear
He thought, "This must be my angel
to fly me out of here"

Say goodbye and just let go
Say goodbye and just let go
You're a wanted man
You played the devil's hand
Now say goodbye and let her go

Rock-a-bye don't listen to her cry
She'll be fine, she won't remember you
Tap the glass, exit onto the line
Move the air, fill up the empty space

His heart like an anchor thrown
Slowly sinking to his knees
So heavy this weight of love
That he could hardly breathe

The room seemed like a snow globe
Some wondrous place he'd been
She was in the center
Soon he'd be outside looking in

Say goodbye and just let go
Say goodbye and just let go
You're a wanted man
You played the devil's hand
Now say goodbye and let her go
