Track Name: Holy Day
sacred grove secret transformation
nightshade grown girl into a maiden
thorny paws from dancing in the roses
wraps herself in a bearskin tied with roses
wilting in the sun with you
drinking from a bowl shaped moon
I know you'll make a vestal bride
but darling you were free that night
moss and stone amethyst embedded bone
pale and thin orchids grow upon her skin
bowing down folding like a flower
fennel crown interwoven shadows
piercing through the boughs to you
picking through the bones for you
shining through the bars of brass
prisoner beneath the grass
la la la la la uh huh
la lala lala uh huh
may this be the last may this be the last
I hide your name beneath each word I speak your name
I wear your ghost just like a gown over my own
may you be the last may you be the last
Track Name: Skull Valley
skull valley
it's where my father sleeps
where the bones of my mother play guitar
where my lady weeps
skull valley
her tears upon the graves
for in the very last hole of that old bone yard
where my body lay
where my baby lay
my ghost holds on my soul holds on
holdin' onto you
my ghost holds on my soul holds on
holdin' on to you
Track Name: Steel Swan
surrender to the ocean I was born to be a legend
I surrender to the ocean all my bones and bloody body
if you speak to the first lady would you tell her she's a darling?
and though I never said I loved her would you tell her I loved her truly?
Cause my soul flies on though my steel swan falls
yeah my soul flies on though my steel swan falls
Track Name: Vision of the Future
It's a vision of the future when I feel your hand in mine
it's a vision of the future when I feel your hair in mine
beneath the water I was hiding with my friend
under the water I was hiding with my friend
It's a vision of the future I was holding you like sand
between my fingers I was holding you like glass
upon the ocean I was holding you like string
within the labyrinth
I was watching when you left me on the island
but maybe I'm a wave and maybe you're the limestone
maybe I'm days and days of waves to you
cause you're the rocks around the lighthouse, lighthouse
I keep breaking on you
I keep crashing on you forever, forever
keep breaking on you
It's a vision of the past there was a forest in your eyes
a vision of the past there was a forest in your eyes
a vision of the past there was a forest in your eyes
a vision of the past there was a forest in you're eyes
but now it's passed there was a forest in your eyes
but now its passed and there were tigers in the flowers
they have passed yeah there was laughter in the leaves
cause there were witches in the trees
but they have passed
and maybe I'm the grass and maybe you're the stampede
maybe I'm hills and hills of grass to you
you're the hooves upon the garden darling
keep tramping through me
I'm the ring around the roses, baby
keep breaking through me
Track Name: Mary
Mary won't you speak to me?
Tell me what to do
Mary won't you speak to me?
Tell me who I am
Was I raised in a blaze of heavenly flame?
Conceived in a dream and pulled into the day?
Or was I born on a train in secret with no name?
Was I born on a train in secret with no name
Track Name: Soldier of the Light
If you call my name I will change my name
If you change with me I'll turn into a tree
If you build a church I' ll turn into a black bird
On some holy morn you'll see a shadow on the steeple
Watch me turn and tumble through the window
stained with sun and saints and swords
Am I a soldier of the light girl break my fall
Can you untangle me tonight from all the other martyrs
Bleeding on the marble brokn in the courtyard
Dying in th sun
Sun sun sun sun sun sun
Sad for seventeen I hope I made you happy
Gem Gemini I loved both of your faces
When when you thought that I was sleeping I was
Pretending to be sleeping
When when you thought that we are human we are
Pretending to be human
Let us dance and stumble through the graveyard
Stained with mud and bone and rose are you a
Daughter of the night
Can you untangle me tonight from every other violet singing in the
Starlit cemetery garden dying in the sun
Sun sun sun sun sun
Track Name: Black Horses
She was picking flowers by herself she was picking flowers by herself tired of sleeping by myself she was pickin flowers
When I picked her like a flower from the daylight from the sun
And it sounded like a plane crash when black horses took us down
Down home
Sweet home
And it is not so bad once you learn how to be sad
I hope in time that you'll fall in love with me
