Track Name: The Stone From My Heart
You are the hand
that overturns the rock.
You are the spirit
that blesses the worm
underneath. With a word;
with a touch; every day,
your graceful concern
lifts the stone from my heart.

Ain’t gonna sleep in the earth no more.
Ain’t gonna sleep in the earth no more.
Gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb
past the roots.
Gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb,
gonna climb.

Ain’t gonna breathe in the dirt no more.
Ain’t gonna pull the dirt into my lungs no more.
Gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb
past the roots.
Gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb, gonna climb
to you.
Track Name: In Utero
I pray
my efforts be
fruitful enough;
my habits be
strong enough;
You be kind enough
I not lead my child
to grief.

I pray
my habits be
strong enough;
my foresight be
long enough;
when the chasm opens up
I not lead my child
to grief.

I pray
my foresight be
long enough;
the signs be
clear enough;
when the demons decide to come
I can help my child
learn to be free.

I pray
my efforts be
fruitful enough;
my habits be
strong enough;
You be kind enough
I not lead my child
to grief.
Track Name: Fissures
Fissures.
Fissures
yawn.

Synapses
span fissures;
span darkness;
span head
held in hands.

Hands
mold synapses.

Synapses
span fissures;
span darkness;
span head
held in hands.

Hands
mold synapses.

Synapses
span fissures.

Fissures
yawn.

Fingertips:
carry him across.
Muscles, strong:
carry him across, oh God.
Spine, a bridge:
carry him across.
Neurons fire:
carry him across, oh God.
Bonds of love:
carry him across.
Bonds of love:
carry him across, oh God.
Mother’s love:
carry him across.
Father’s love:
carry him across.
Track Name: Tethered
When you’re away from me,
I drive myself a little crazy.
I get a little detached
from reality.

When you’re away from me,
I get a little uneven.
I try to remember
what you would say.

Think you ran over that woman?
(Don’t even double back.)
That was just a bump in the road.
(Don’t even double back.)
You can still see her walking
(Don’t even double back.)
as if nothing happened.

When you’re away from me,
I drive myself a little crazy.
I get a little untethered
without your hand on mine.

When you’re away from me,
I get a little unanchored.
I try to remember
your voice in my ear.

Think you ran over that dog?
(Don’t even double back.)
Well, you felt no impact.
(Don’t even double back.)
You can still see it playing
(Don’t even double back.)
as if nothing happened.

Think you ran over that woman?
(Don’t even double back.)
That was just a bump in the road.
(Don’t even double back.)
You can still see her walking
(Don’t even double back.)
as if nothing happened.

When you’re away from me,
I drive myself a little crazy.
I hold fast to the ring on my finger.
Suddenly I’m tethered to you.
Track Name: This Will Be My Last Time Singing
This will be
my last time singing
‘bout my thoughts a-spinnin’, buildin’ up a maze.

This will be my last time,
baby, now that you are in the world.

This will be
my last time singing
‘bout the currents that come callin’ from below.

This will be my last time,
baby, now that you are in the world.

This will be
my last time singing
‘bout the sorrow and the burden and the pain.

This will be my last time,
baby, now that you are in the world.

Baby, now that you are in the world.
Son, now that you are in the world.
