Track Name: Bird Tracks In The Snow
we were facing east
with a southern breeze
sheltered by a canopy

the neon glow
of the northern lights
filled the sky

we took our cues
from the west
false enchantment and regret

we pleaded for a miracle
desperate for an oracle
to leave us bird tracks in the snow

sacred carvings
patron saints
I don’t believe in fate

modern life
is cacophony
all rewards, no loyalty

just endless
comic agony
origin, identity

we’re in need of a miracle
desperate for an oracle
to leave us bird tracks in the snow

the truth is impossible to ignore
depending on what you’re looking for
the truth is impossible to ignore
depending on what you want it for
Track Name: Frank And Andy
never thought you’d stay forever
always thought I’d get to see you one more time
never thought you’d live forever
always thought I’d get to hold you one more time
feel your skin against mine

no words exist to explain
the pain of taking away
I hear you saying my name
the pain of taking away

just down from the bend in the river
across the sound we felt it like a crashing wave
pierced heart from a cruel quiver
arrow went right through us and it feels so strange
now I can’t shake this daze

no words exist to explain
the pain of taking away
I hear you saying my name
the pain of taking away
Track Name: Carolina Light
carolina light
carolina leave a light on

I owe you for so many things
birth place, surname, my family
you can’t change my identity
I just want to exist

carolina light
carolina leave a light on

distaste, your game hypocrisy
won’t wait for your apology
can’t trust your false psychology
don’t tell me who to love

carolina light
carolina leave a light on

into the past amend tradition
let’s be honest
something’s slipping
where’s your honor
make a difference
it’s no surprise
something’s slipping
let’s be honest
something’s slipping

carolina light
carolina leave a light on
Track Name: Black Sparrow
black sparrow, black sparrow
I dreamt of seven hills
black sparrow, black sparrow
where caesar’s blood was spilled

black sparrow, black sparrow
conspiracy breathes far and near
black sparrow, black sparrow
we capitulate to all our fears

black sparrow, black sparrow
true wisdom eludes our grasp
black sparrow, black sparrow
we blithely retrace our past

black sparrow, black sparrow
let me sleep till spring
black sparrow, black sparrow
I want to see what the dust will bring

black sparrow, black sparrow
I will follow you out west
black sparrow, black sparrow
there’s no water in los angeles

black sparrow, black sparrow
I’ll plant a flower in the sand
black sparrow, black sparrow
a pitiable pleasure for a lonely man

black sparrow, black sparrow
you’re my painting, you’re my book
black sparrow, black sparrow
you are everywhere I look

black sparrow, black sparrow
were I hungry and nearly dead
black sparrow, black sparrow
would you tell me if my letters went unread
