Track Name: Axemen
We're always outrunning the flood
And it leaves us knee deep in the mud we once rubbbed on our faces while waltzing around with dirt masks. Now the forest asks us if we've noticed that we've out worn our welcome.
So run run run from the Axemen
They've come come come for your new skin
Run run run from the axe men
They've come come come for your new skin

We're always chewing it in the backs of our mouths
To keep our backs watched and clean of we'd let out howls
Of love so bold and black and mean it would lock down your knees
and block the seeds of light they need.

So run run run from the Axemen...

And we're always out running that flood
I want to let out howls of love to bold and rough and tough and black and mean that it would lock down your knees and block the seeds of light they need.

So run run run from the Axemen....
Track Name: Patagonia
So sweetly you said out loud
"We're gonna break, we're gonna break with the break of day"
And so sweetly you stared down at me till i had to break till i had to break those eyes away.
So they would not pull at me as i tried to make as i tried to make and early escape.
And now the mouths of the mountains open with mine trying to eat the sky of Patagonia.

And here the hearts they could break through stones but here the cold it cuts to bones. And here the hearts they could break through stones but here the cold it could cut to bones.

And so so neatly you had told me we'll meet again well meet again when the limbs are bare.
And so neatly I heald tightly Flashing feathered fingers through my hair
And now the secrets back home they build like boulders that roll down the hills of Patagonia.

And here the hearts....

And your hammers to my heart were pounding, gonna have to take those hands away from your ears.
While breaths were blown with bolts of lightning. Let it strike to melt away this year.
And so sweetly well take off galloping, and then rise to the sky of Patagonia.
Track Name: Silent Be The Way
Silent be the way that I will try and fix this
Cause you and all your ways are making darkened tricks
That take over your days untill they've taken you away
It's impossible to say

Anything at all, like I used to like I used to
Silver and Gold we would laugh in your bathroom
Silver and Gold we would laugh in your bathroom

Elephants could not stampede to make you understand the trumpets need to ring through your ears again while sirens try to bring you to their watering mouths

Come back to us like you used to like you used to
Silver and Gold we would laugh in your bathroom

Silent be the way that I will try and fix this
Cause you and all your ways are making darkened tricks
That take over your days untill they've taken you away
It's impossible to say

Anything at all, like I used to like I used to
Come back to us like you used to
Silver and Gold we would laugh in your bathroom
Silver and Gold we would laugh in your bathroom

Can't we blow the horns once more to echo accross this land?
Track Name: Grey Whale Winter
Somehow we'll have to find the bones that we left in each others mouths
Cause you still have the ones that allow me to stand upright
And now the night it ties me tight to the bare trees
And now the night it holds me tight to me brown knees
And this will be a grey whale winter
Pulling everyone under
Golden breaths going down deeper
we will need to have fireflies in our mouths
And swallow them down down down down...

So when we leave the sky behind we will find ourselves
Glowing under waves black as crows wings
So when we leave the sky behind
We will find ourselves
Glowing under waves black as crows wings

Somehow we'll have to find the sun that we left in each other's mouths
Cause I still have the light you left in my teeth
And now the day it throws me out on the streets
And now the day it throws me out of your reach
This will be the end of garden mothers throwing their fists through the walls
Failing to catch the falling hope clouds
She will need to have fireflies in her belly today
To shine their light on her path so she wont stray

So when she leaves the sky behind she will find herself
glowing through the forest black as crows eyes, glowing through the forest black as crows eyes
