Track Name: cain
I was first born
to our mother
we are brothers
so they say

you were shepherd
to fields of promise
I lay harvest
at dawn each day

you were my friend

heralds calling out my name
you're a sinner cain
am I not as right as he
who on bended knee
did just the same as I
an offering to the sky

when you are buried
roots will grow
from your body
deep into the earth
you'll be eternal
Track Name: chaos
lets get a little wild
lets say anything we want to
days unfolding into darkness
lets leave it on the floor
lets leave it all on the floor

chaos, please don't let me go

I'm not feeling very patient
sitting in this stairway, walking on the landing
candles burning into nothing
still have not said a word
still have not said a word

chaos, please don't let me go

the hardest thing I ever said was goodbye
please don't let me
the hardest thing I ever said was goodbye
Track Name: fugitives
in the wind blowing east
walk as silent as you please
to see her smiling face
watching her over dawn
like a lover in your arms
sinking anchors to this place
let her hold you down
so you can feel her now
tracing patterns with the light
lose your names in the flood
drowning what was
criminals in the night

but you knew your names once, as you followed it down

fire twice in the dark
her hand held at your heart
eyes shining like the moon
and she waits always
many countless days
for you

but you knew your love once, as you followed it down
but you knew your names once, as you followed it down
Track Name: red sky morning
I will not go until you follow me home
across the lonesome shoreline
setting sail to the west
through the wilderness
dawn breaks the horizon

and I listen to the warning
of this red sky morning

I'm a seafarer's son
this ship's captain
water born and bred
and you, you'll stand at the helm
and we will not go down in this storm

in this storm

I will not go until you follow me home
raise the sail and life the anchor
and I won't watch you drown
disappear in the ocean sound
swept by the current

I will listen to the warning
of this red sky morning

I'm a seafarer's son
this ship's captain
water born and bred
and you, you'll stand at the helm
and we will not go down in this storm

in this storm
for I will listen to the warning
of this red sky morning
Track Name: happiness is quiet
I'm on the ground
against a wall
the night is warm
come lay with me

the windows down
we're falling out
that hurried sound
as we undress

my heart it speaks
secret languages
into your ears
against my chest

I'm opened up
my mind is yours
emptied me out
I'm nothing left

and I'm undone
the fire burns on
our bodies drawn
and it is brilliant

and it is brilliant

you told me something
about happiness
it's best when quiet and
unexpected
Track Name: undone
put the lights up one by one
to watch you come undone
and you're haunted and hunted
and there's no where to run
I'll watch you come undone

I know you, you love the way you let me down

and it's messed up this business you have grown
it's all that you've known
and you're twisted and swinging
cause that's all you've been shown
it's all that you've known

I know you, you love the way you let me down

put the lights up one by one
to watch you come undone
