Track Name: Living Things
in the light of the morning there's a song
it sings itself in and through you
illuminates the wall

i'm at your well for some water
there's no water to be found

beneath your skin lies the deepest, darkest well
that the words of a father
could not make well

hear the words of your brother
there's no brother to be found

it's in the living things you are found
Track Name: Why Look For The Living Among The Dead?
as we walked along in sorrow
a man came to our side
he asked why we were troubled
and we said, 'friend, have you not heard?'

the One we knew as love
was put upon a tree
it was then the darkness fell

but our hearts burned within us
at the things he said
our hearts burned within us
this Man was the I Am
Track Name: Tares Among The Wheat
you don't know the kind of man i am
just how deep the valleys run
i've got shadows that are oh so cold
soil that's never seen the sun

when you said i'd never do you wrong
you don't know how wrong you were
cause i've sown seeds among the stones and thorns
where nothing grows out of the earth

never sing of what you've done
never sing of who you are
cause they're just words to bring you down

there are tares among the wheat
Track Name: For Us Who Are So Small
we sing of trees so great and tall
our songs 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
