Track Name: walking
slow steps in silence
leave tracks in fresh snows
some folks are frightened of it
i oughta know

but i won't let you go alone
i'll stay by your side until it's done
til sun sets, and foxes find
their sleeping dens to hide in

gray shapes are everywhere
spottings on the hills
curves of clear smoke rising
like a silver bell

i've been roaming north and south
i'd stop to rest if i could
sit at the bank and look around
like the yellow daisies do

but i won't let you go alone
i'll stay by your side until it's done
til sun sets, and foxes find
their sleeping dens to hide in

the tide in the night makes the river roar
like i've never heard before
i take a dip and lean back in
and wait for what's around the bend

cause i won't let you go alone
i'll stay by your side until it's done
Track Name: unknown phenomena
there's someone in the street
you pass by quietly
the shuffling of feet
crossed and journeying
if occasion comes to see
you'll meet eyes briefly
and you'll keep moving
and they'll keep moving

and just as when the springtime bees
follow us without stinging
from day one we're subject to unknown phenomena

and where do they sleep
and who is with them
which secrets did they keep
and who'd they tell when
it all came out quick
and hearts fell quicker
and it was sunday
the sun was shining

and just as when the twilight rain
follows us mysteriously
all along we're subject to unknown phenomena
Track Name: all you can't say
tell me your secrets
bad news and regrets
don't hide the big things
i can take them

into my quiet place
it's brimming with wild things
all waiting patiently
for a moment to see straight

and the fallen moon is still full because of you
and the splintered trees were a wasted offering
at the altar of all you can't say

tell me just one wish
you were never granted
and where did they make off with it
and what should we call them

and how are things right now
sitting in the mists and in the fallout

and your sparkling sun isn't fooling anyone
another twisted day in the breeze just melts away
surrounded by all you can't say
Track Name: moment to notice
a blocked road
a winding wind
that slips through holes
left wide open
by a distant force
from a distant past unknown

i won't let go
i won't give in
though at times i feel
my feet slip in
to pools of blackened
tar and dust we trust

that it's all
on the horizon
resolved
that it all
fits inside
of the breaths we may hold
(in our sore throats)

a moment to notice what's here

standing on this ledge
looking at this sea
sunlight fills my eyes
completely

and i will throw this stone
the furthest i can reach
bring it to me

and it's all
on the horizon
resolved
and it all
fits inside
of the breaths we may hold
(in our sore throats)

a moment to notice what's here
