Track Name: Sparrow Falls
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
Track Name: Bleary Eyed Duty
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
Track Name: To Make A Ring
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

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
Track Name: Off The Cuff
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
Track Name: Chest Of Drawers
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
Track Name: Oil On Panel
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
Track Name: The Speaking Hands
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
Track Name: Down In Yon Forest
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
