Track Name: A Promising Flee
You can give them all the things they need
You can tell them that its all for good
You can say it every single way
And you can tell them that you think they should
Just open their eyes to the cities inside
...I wish you would.

I heard a skipping in the beats repeating
The sound of clutter from your untamed heart
Tell me honey is there something missing?
Perhaps the reason for your distant part
In all to be found, set an ear to the ground
And list well

Plan a promising flee, send our ships to sea
Track Name: Wind and Oak
Said to the wind last night
"Haven't you ever felt lost?"
Said to the great red oak
"Do you feel small in a place like this?"
Hummed to the big gray sky...

Said to the wind last night
"Haven't you ever felt lost?"
Said to the great red oak
"Do you feel small in a place like this?"
Turned to the whispering leaves
"I am alive..."
Heard from the wind and oak
"...once in a while"
Track Name: The Woodsman's Song
The son of the woodsman runs
Into the orchard tended to by the sun
The feet of the mother's son
Will take him away to the places you once sung
Only in the grave
Only in the grave

The eyes of the woodsman stay
Gentle and gray as the grass you lay upon
Only in the rain
Only in the rain

He sees the grain
Counts the years
Hides the pain

He sees the grain
Counts the years
Hides the pain

The son of the woodsman runs
Into the orchard tended to by the sun

The eyes of the woodsman stay
Gentle and gray as the grass you lay upon
Only in the rain
Only in the rain
Only in the rain
Track Name: Hold it up to the Sky
Hold it up to the sky
Send it off with a smile
Won't see you around
Not for a while

Take this off your back
Undeserving of this weighted plaque
Hold it up to the sky
Send it off with a heavy cry

I found you

Hold this up to the light
Let it show you that this endless fight
Its only in you
Its only in you too

I found you...
Track Name: Blind in Both Eyes
I miss you coming around here
I wish you'd show me that you're near
And I miss your face in the blue light
And I held the notion in hindsight I'd say
I was blind in both eyes

I found a road and a river
And I was to hold and deliver all these words
Up through the cracks in the floorboards
Saw something bigger that you swore we'd see.
But we were blind in all eyes

I miss you coming around here
I wish you'd show me that you're near
And I miss your face in the blue light
And I held the notion in hindsight I'd say
I was blind in both eyes
