Consider The Birds

Sparrow Falls Holy king cause my skin to crawl Away from every evil thing In a cotton mouth in a cotton mouth Quick across the water bring Your hand speak of a broken door handle Of thoughts and deeds a little bird sings A little bird sings Star rise on the face of the water Quiet comes on the wing of a lark Call out in an old time holler Call out if you're afraid of your dark I will you no grief no to see you fall Once had a mind to I'm done with that I mean you no harm at all What stands between us Runs right through my head It's water still under the bridge We come together in a horsehead union Hang my tobacco hands from a beam Silver handled and chest of drawers Out of the longhouse I took what's yours I took what's yours I will you no grief no to see you fall Once had a mind to I'm done with that I mean you no harm at all I will you no grief no to see you fall Once had a mind to I'm done with that I'm done with that I mean you no harm at all

BLEARY EYED DUTY My anger is a storm with no rain Thoughts take you away again And when you leave me where do you go Already I've forgotten that you wait for me At the end of my thoughts I twist and turn Myself a knot You remain in this my age of reason You love me truly truly If I withhold nothing it is my bleary eyed duty I speak to my own Wooden knees ‘neath the table I have the love of family Bright as judgement in my wake Hands down the grain of wood Wrought iron eighteen cedar If is a comfort for me to know You will it that I need her She remains in this my age of reason She loves me truly truly If I withhold nothing it is my bleary eyed duty Your tears fall at the drop of my hat Trouble and suffering yeah yeah yeah all of that I'm wearing down your Sunday shoes Out of my head it is you I choose Lovely feathers I can't refuse It's like the moon just walked in the room Hey sober in spirit yeah sober in mind A holy fuzz comes through the line In his time You remain in this my age of reason You love me truly truly If I withhold nothing it is my bleary eyed duty

To Make A Ring Nothing in this world Gives me a reason to doubt I want into him of my flesh I want out I have been given to follow the sun Forever round the throne Forever round the throne Listen Judgement will not be avoided by your unbelief By your lack of fear Nor by your prayers to any little idol here He owns all those cattle He owns all these hills Forever round the throne yeah Forever round the throne Forever round the throne yeah Crow eye come see Crow eye come see The Lord will not be mocked Not by you or me Power glory honour Be unto my king We will weave our hands We will weave our hands We will weave ours hand together to make ring Forever round the throne Forever round the throne Forever round the throne yeah Power glory and dominion Be unto the king We will weave our voice Weave our voice We will weave our voice together and sing Forever round the throne Forever round the throne Forever round the throne (repeat) Forever

Off The Cuff You seek a vision To get your hardened hearts to beat I cannot see in this light I cannot think in this heat Fingers on glass and a singing horn The oldest peacock ever born On the wind come back to me Close so I can hear it She is chosen she dances in the creek He is love he is spirit I was bitten and woke before the sun The past keeps coming all hitched up together Redoubled in a crude mind One of their number We bring our best machine One to hang down from her waist We bring our best machine One to wash yourself clean On the wind come back to me Close so I can hear it She is chosen she dances in the creek He is love yes he is spirit Our best machine Out best machine We bring our best machine

Chest of Drawers She floats in air In these three ways You know You know The road does not trust me to keep Beneath the bushes The three of us asleep Go into the Lord's house And go in a mile The world will bow The knees will be broken for those who don't know how He delights not in the strength of horses He takes no pleasure not in the legs of men He's a working man And none can stay his hand His are the three Faces of time We keep walking And thinking things to talk about Down on our prayers bones in line Go into the Lord's house Go in a mile The world will bow The knees will be broken for those who don't know how He delights not in the strength of horses He takes no pleasure in the cleverness of men

Oil On Panel The color has left you No your colors fall For her no one dreams I've made a covenant with my eyes All lust lashes out When do I blink my love Blink on illusion On this warm bed of feathers my dove Already gone I never heard it come in Life not mine to be taken My mind not mine to be lost I paint them roughly I paint them in my sleep Ira Gula Luxuria Heavy as their holes are deep Roma Roma Where is my country Wholly in his hands Worthy in his eye You and I I paint them roughly I paint them in my sleep Ira Gula Luxuria Heavy as their holes are deep Roma, Roma Where is my country Yeshua, Yeshua Where you go take me with thee Roma, Roma Where is my country Yeshua, Yeshua Where you go take me with thee

The Speaking Hands I long to be with God on his mind and behind her laughter Circle the block, come back and tell me You took the words he painted by heart Right out of my hand Like the scrawl We scratch the screen and all Do as we want yes, we do as we want As the fall We taste the shame and all We've never not, we've never not What is the end of My troubled mind To embitter to sin Provoke my soul Come Christ within yeah I don't have the courage To carve my splinters out no But I got a friend St. Steven These pictures of us Wood, hay and stubble We as well are nothing but trouble Like the scrawl We scratch and scream and all Do as we want, do as you want Like the fall We taste the shame and all We've never not, we've never not What is the end of Your troubled mind To embitter to sin Provoke your soul To Christ within

Down In Yon Forest Down in yon forest there stands a hall Bells of paradise I hear them ring It's gilded all over with purple and pall And I love my Lord Jesus above anything Down in that hall there lay a bed Voices of heaven here in my head All scarlet the cover that over it spread And I love my Lord Jesus above anything Down under that bed there runs a flood Bells of heaven I hear them ring Half run in water Half run in blood And I love my Lord Jesus above anything Down at the bed feet there grows a thorn Voices of heaven I hear them sing It blooms its white blossoms the day he was born And I love my Lord Jesus above anything
