Track Name: The Neighboring Sea
come find your Lover in the neighboring sea
it's a question of devotion that's in front of me
come find the Other in the neighboring sea
chosen from the chosen, now no one can see
so sing your song

tonight
we'll be dragged by the moon
an aimless speck of driftwood
that's tossed about the ancient sea

come find your Lover in the neighboring sea
beyond the blessed river to eternity
come find the Other in the neighboring sea
broken for the broken, pouring through these wretched valleys
so sing your song

(sky-colored country stretching out beyond the lines of what's contained
within these wretched bones
i'm tossed against the rocks below)

small as you are
your fragrance fills the world
Track Name: Greenleaf
feed your ground
that you can't help but plant as the seeds fall from your mouth

sing that sound
that you make when you toss and you turn as you're waking up

breathe it out
so that bird can descend with the icicle in its mouth
oh that bird will descend with the icicle in its mouth

and what you call 'home'
is not what what you once thought
and what you call 'love'
is more than reaction
and what you call 'fear'
is just a paper wall

leave it now
all the words that we wrote when we were young cannot be found

hold it out
so that bird can descend with the icicle in its mouth
oh, the peacock explained in a moment that all is now

the last enduring chill
it was like a warm ripple across a deeper sea of cold
it was the Holy Ghost
Track Name: Arboretum
my body told me to breathe
my body told me to be afraid
my body would not lay itself down to sleep

my body told me to love
my body told me don't be afraid
my body's broken
Track Name: Along The Road
along the road i saw a stone
and i asked that stone, 'are you my teacher now?'
it didn't move or roll so i tried to make my way
but i couldn't so i laid my body on the ground
and when it finally spoke it said, 'come on, come on, come on, walk into your darkness, my friend!'

further down the road i saw a man
and i asked that man, 'are you my brother now?'
he never spoke a word he just held out a hand
and i knew that i had done unto the least of these
when the Spirit spoke it said, 'come on, come on, come on, walk into your darkness my friend!'
Track Name: The Song Of The Wren
around the bend
descending down the road
the blessed woman stood
on the edge of a grove

with ears to hear
the clearest songs
the trees had sung

and they'll sing without end
we will be made to sing with them
Track Name: House Of Love
i'm gonna move out of this house
into the House of Love
this house can stand no more!
Track Name: For Us Who Are So Small (Alt. Version)
we sing of trees so great and tall
the songs that we sing, they are brief
but they are long enough for us who are so small

our sudden blissful, lisping songs
they turn to living things
consecrating us who are so small

three birds sing out their songs now
