Farfisa Song 04:25
Now let it go Your enemies Lay them to rest Wishing in wells And saving your spells Well who are you to try? What’s on your mind? I feel it running blind Go roam, go roam Come home Take away All the thoughts you know Remember, go slow What’s on your mind? A story of loss and time Misery mother, give me a sign Where’d she go? Where’d she go, oh where’d she go? Where’d she go? Where’d she go, where’d she go, where’d she go? Where’d she go? Never been just mine, Escape the sands of time

He braids my hair while he tells me about old lovers One was an angel and the other never knew his mother Never, never knew his mother. Which way does it flow? I don’t know Into the garden where it grows, where it grows Which was does it flow? I don’t know Into the garden where it grows, where it grows His hand on mine while he tells me about old lovers One was a liar and the other never knew his mother Which way does it flow? I don’t know Into the garden where it grows, where it grows Never never gonna know Never never never gonna know If there was a way, then I would have known That the sun doesn’t shine where things don’t wanna grow You should have known You should have known, should have known, should have known Never gonna known You should have known, should have known, should have known You should have known If I found God, then I would have known That the sun doesn’t shine where things don’t want to grow Should have known, Should have known to go to the garden where it grows where it flows What a world, what a world Wild and absurd Just stay in my garden with the roses and the earth

There is a garden But I won’t go May be a dream Never walked here all on my own Take care of me Have you ever been to vineland? Girls in white and boys with their hands Let control go down in the vine, far beyond. What can it be? If I look too closely, it will burn me from inside Honey if you try it you might be delighted Have you been? Have you been? Take my hand Follow me to honey Sweet milk and honey In the grain I see places Haven’t been Though they spill from my eyes Falling like water Maybe one day when I wake up, I won’t be afraid anymore, I’ll have fought the fear that finds my heart face down below the bluestone that lies up the back of my mountain, my mountain, home hasn’t been any closer to now, and the fire is good, and the light is good and where is your home? What can it be? If I look too closely, it will burn me from inside.

Protector 03:27
Two ten times a steal or two I don’t need a protector When I will believe I am left to you Made a new friend Two, too long notes Heal, heal Tommy can’t say what’s real Tommy can’t stay here Talking to candles Kill for another tear That’ll count tears Then I’ll count two Me alone alone, Big here Live above you Through my teeth Quiet time is here Time and time until Quiet time is here Time and time until Quiet time is here Time and time until Quiet time is here Quiet time is here Talking to candles Kill for another tear That’ll count tears Then I’ll count two

Underwater velvet Pours through cold fingers Watched them all die Turn into rainbows in the sky Iridescent figures flying high In dreams, evil regressed said their sorry Apple of my lonely eye Baptized in the river where it runs Baptized in rivers where it runs to you, it runs to you Caught up with my heart Five inches before it hit the floor Spun my head around and lost it Lost in the river where it runs HA HA HA HA HA HA Back to the river and it runs Back to the river and it runs it runs Back to the river and it runs it runs it runs Ah0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0oahhhhhhhhh She lives inside her mind She curates her silver eyes she runs, she runs back to the river, and it runs it runs Memories of things never done But amnesia from under the gun Thicker skin to softer dreams Wait to live and live to run and run and run and Back to the river and it runs Back to the river and it runs, it runs, it runs, it runs Ah0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0oahhhhhhhhh

Rest 04:25
Come here rest Head on mine Take it as a sign For the end of enigmatic times Wonder if those shadows move Away from me Into all blue Can you feel me? Place hand in mine Can you, will you? Where’ve you been? For all of time Haven’t lived enough To question all the signs In it for the long, long song Heart open, face to sun Don’t you do it Without me Don’t you do it

Rise 04:34
So long blue moon When will we next see you? Stay tonight, greet the morning light So long blue moon Help me help each of you Stay tonight, greet the morning light Now is divine, now is divine Scared they’d find my face Drenched in voodoo, veiled in haze It’s all I’ve ever known Where the darkness meets the light Now is divine, now is divine Now is our time divine yes, divine Save me now Don’t save me now Take me to a higher realm Listen as the waves roll in Pray for your darkest sins How does it feel to become an angel? Now is divine, now is divine, mine mine mine
8.
It felt like I was dreaming It felt like I was dreaming Over the moon Over the three moons I stood there with my mother My mother and another Touching the salt Touching the pink salt In the ravine, in the ravine Premonitions of home Not far from my own I’ll let my dreams lead the way I’ll let my dreams lead me To the Ravine, to the ravine
