Track Name: Back to Life
Fall back slow onto sheets of gold
Like a bellow flows the rhythm of my breathing
Time well lost as the day grows old
And I think that it's my favorite way of being
Yes, I know that it's my favorite way of being

Now it's cold, honey - where'd it go?
My once treasured and elated piece of evening
It can take fine wine for a night alone
Not to sting and it's a bitter way of being
Yes, I know that it's my bitter way of being

When it's back to life, we must sin as wise
We must owe the Earth our lives, and buy what time is hawking
When it's back to life, we must sin as wise
Feeling like a child who's told to let time do the talking

And if I should just let you go, oh - honey would you let me know?
And if I should just let you go, oh - honey would you let me?

Fall back slow 'cause I tell you so
And I'll hold you like a root, my ornery oak tree
Blessèd beau, I can tell you know
It's a temporary garden we are reaping
Yes, a temporary garden we are reaping
Track Name: Take the Ore
Lean oh lightly like the rain, child
Ain’t he pretty?
Smiling like a king in anxious flight
Hold on to each tethered rope swing
For there may not be another chance
To go this high

Oh the sweet of city streets is poor
Ain’t the holiness you’re waiting for
Take the ore and call it fortune from before

We are boys who play in sprinklers
Girls who war in rivers
Boat and ropes our Palestine
Kick your heels your canvas sneakers
Live a life released
‘Cause even when you’re small time flies

Oh the sweet of city streets is poor
Ain’t the holiness you’re waiting for
Take the ore and call it fortune from before

Rain falling like a gray dove
Green too young to make sense of
Bay as we change and come to
Raining new lace for the bayou
Track Name: The Line & the Light
I have seen the light from the very first time we've spoken
I have seen the line like a barricade, still unbroken
I have seen the truth like a silhouette, still and golden
I have seen the light from the very first time we've spoken

Need and know me with your eyes wide
Need and know me with your bright eyes wide

Seems like I could seem like the only one waiting for you
Seems to me you dream - yet another one, yet to come to
Honey there's a day, like a silhouette, when you'll see through
Then you'll leave and I'm in the wake of it, waiting for you

Hey now, can you dig it?
Straight out of the gate
There's no way that you can fool me
Still I want it anyway so
Can you dig it?
How can I elate
Knowing that you're
Gon' leave me in the dark
Track Name: Josie
Belle, lay of the lake, hardened to shake
She's wired for hope but no mistake
Pliant be damned makes a good man
The fair are there to mediate

Gaul, game of the boss, reign of the toss
It's heads for all and tails for naught
Silent be damned makes a good man
The fair despair to bare the cross

Break into the fire, break into the fire
Break into the fire, break into the fire
You'll know Josie when I meet you

I fell through the boughs, when she played sounds
As full of her as Earth is round
Josie plays clean, bent on a dream
It's me, it's her, it's him renowned

Heed the heat and find an open door
