Track Name: I Know the Caves are Deep
I want to be correct and I want to be the best
Cause I'm in love with you
I don't want to talk about it

Send my burning on the breeze
Send me down onto my knees
Cause I'm in love with you
I know the caves are deep

So deep, So deep

When I fell asleep the tide was high
It touched the rooftop of your smile
It's hard to be direct when I talk about you

I want to be correct and I want to feel the best
Cause I'm in love with you
I don't want to talk about it
Track Name: Brown and Blue
He's an ember but he never burns like he should
He's my lover but he never does me any good!

I wanted to run away
Put my hands in the sand let it bury me
When he knelt and wept "Would you marry me?"
I couldn't even tell him why not!

He doesn't see that I can't let him off the hook
When he's sleeping let the devil read him like a book

I want the silent nights now
Nothing deep inside to make us both surprised
and the evil that we never saw here
Might make it's last fall here
Track Name: Privacy
In the letter that I wrote you I gave you privacy
Took my arching ecstacy and nailed it
To a tree on the west side of town
I didn't know what grew there
I can see you standing around on those lacy bridges

And was it you that held me?
I want to remember as if it was
And if shadow covers my path
Will you be my memory?

People come and people know their bodies in the light
So I let you go honestly, quietly through the day
As the sun gives to night
I didn't know what was true -
Are those wolf teeth in your smile,
Or will I be holding you? Or -

Was it you that held me?
I want to remember as if it was
And if a shadow covers my path
Will you be a memory?
Track Name: Those Woods
Tried filling a 12 year rift that laughed -
Against the consequence
When I met the poison I couldn't wait -
To make the difference

Didn't know I'd fell so fast
I thought that I could, but if I should
Might I fail my father
Lyin upon those woods?

I feel so uneasy, late on a lie that pushed me
By surprise
Praying for us to thrive though we're misaligned
And we wouldn't act right

To outgrow a lonely past
That left a pile of how-to books
The mess was meant to die
Upon those words

Left my body in the cemetary
Cause I waited too long
And couldn't decide upon a firing gun
What I really did want
Track Name: It Trails
It trails behind me
Blowing smoke beneath my shadow
Bending atoms in my meadow
Branding syllables of Adam

And I'm caught up in a milky weight
Encumbering with honey gait
Riding on a silver fate
A silky manifest tail

My number trembles
Making happiness a home
Folding down upon a thorny throne
Eating elements unknown

I'm enchanted by the diver's ways
Moving matter with a steady gaze
Borrowing a golden fate
From new Lemurian waves
Track Name: Lake of Glass
When you left me waiting here
I counted the days and
Hoped the stallion of your hours
Would some time soon come
Galloping near

I listen for his hooves
To dusty up my coat
I sang your name into the dirt
Into the ruffles of my skirt

I longed to ride your lips on my breath
But there's nothing else that I wish
Nothing left that fills my taste
For wandering until I fit

I swallowed up a lake of glass
While you laid in another girl
Her cries create the tides
To make me levitate inside
Track Name: Same Old Kiss
Always baby will I love you
Until my body's gone
But listen when I tell you every way
Until my heart's undone by the wind

She drew me in
Until my whole face was stiff and still
But never living like we thought we might
Our vacant nest might catch fire

Tonight there's sugar by the bedside
But when the sky ain't kind no more
Dreams of tiny angels leading time astray
Make our blood run colder

I'm leaving and I won't come back
Not to have you like this
But running only buys me time
To fall into the same old kiss

Always baby will I love you
Until my body's gone
But listen when I tell you every way
Until my heart's undone

I'm leaving and I won't come back
Not to have you like this
But running only buys me time
To fall into the same old kiss
