Track Name: Circle Hymn
Turn all eternal
eternity round
The circle in circle may be unbroken now
Turn all eternal
eternal the wheel
Ah circle in circle may be unbroken still
Track Name: Feverer
Bottles hold all that we know
Yet the sky defies these containers
water all we know is old
and it breaks in the shape of that which holds

to be seen
changes things

Hey fever leave us out of this spin
Fey helix it twists on ya within
Oh sleep on, sleep on old virus
As we pawn weapon inside us

Well the rent payers were paying rent
and the parents were parenting
Oh the wild eyes and holes therein
Amen amen amen again

to be seen
changes things

Hey fever leave us out of this spin
Fey helix it twists on ya within
Oh sleep on, sleep on old virus
As we pawn weapon inside us

An angel awaits at the gate
waves away burning blade
Track Name: Beast in the Garden
In the valley of milk and honey
I want a cup overrunning
Make my liquor a little less bitter
Maybe the guard dogs licking not biting
Our moment is momentous

We end the way we envision
With the ideas tied to the eye lids
We end the way we envision
Where your headed
where you’re head is

Beast in the Garden
Be still guarding the gate
Ah lonely angel
waver of burning blade
Beast in the Garden
Ah still guarding the gate
A lonely angel
waving of burning blade

I'm going to burn down every last house
come on come down
come on get out
I'm going to burn down every last house
come on come down
come on get out

All end the way we envision
with the idea tied to the eyelids
All end the way we envision
Where you’re headed
Where your head is
Track Name: Ladder to the Sun
Tell my sister when I'm gone
I built a ladder to the sun
don't you worry if we burn
all the light falls back to earth
deck of jokers for my hand
serve no purpose in this game
play your cards right maybe you can
will burn out someday in the end

Who says?
Who says you're right?

Oh tequila to kill off
any woe woe woes we've got
drinking free beer on the clock
what could be freeer that us?
no one is more free than us
what could be more free than?

I don't want you to think I'm down
I don't want you to think I'm out though
I don't want you to think I'm down and out about

Who says?
who says you're right?
Who says?
who says

I do the best you can
You do the best I can
I do the best you can
You do the best I

Who says?
who says you're right?
Who says?
who says
Track Name: Good Hand
May the baying of the hounds
all rapping on your backbone
only ever be just that

May the saying of the sounds
in your seances abound
only with the kindest kind of spirits

And may you get a good gift
all the silver brushes
fall in heaps about your feet

On your good hand
all meaning
may it get found out

I hope find you the hill
where you'd like to die but still
live on long beyond
just because you can and will
and if you have to lose your hat
lose your hat so that
sly deciphers can search through it

On your good hand
all meaning
may it get found out

On your good hand
all meaning
may you just lie down
Track Name: Moon Barks at the Dog
All we ate today was cake
I pray the lord our teeth to break
running off like mocker's jaw
with blocks that beg to get knocked off
eight ball or apple to bite
us gnashers cast into the night

Moon barks at the dog tonight
young tongue set on fire
Moon barks at the dog tonight
weep with me in four/four time

Darkness on the edge of town
is swimming in stereo sound
the boss is not my cup of tea
averse to such authority
one one one
one cup of hemlock on the rocks
one one one
one cup of hemlock coming up

Moon barks at the dog tonight
young tongue set on fire
Moon barks at the dog tonight
weep with me in four/four time
Track Name: Denarius
Recent revelations show
There's a reason
A reason you should know your own
Belly grows bellicose
know your enemy the most
Anno Domini
I ain't no domino
but I know every knee will crease to please these present tenses
In a new light
A buck ain't what it once was
It's an old lie
but the doe folds to the bluffer
Render unto Caesar what Ceasar sees as his
Retail therapists
These sails seldom get the gust
Even Jesus made a whip and flipped shit on opportunists
Track Name: Timshel
Your supplications could supply cash enough
to suck up even to the worst luck
So if I'm longing for all the wrong things
I shouldn't long linger on such

Good hearted christians
whip out their weapons
push them against some sinner’s side
Well wishing witches
were something with which to burn your sins and sticks alike

You're conspicuous
So I pick you up
gonna push you against these teeth
So if you want me
get out and grapple
the flavor of the eater is sweeter to the apple

I was hoping we would open
nothing of this sort
Without warning we would join in
and how the blood would pour
though you're Abel still unstable
I would be your Cain
Oh
No one takes your time
No one but I
Track Name: Frostbiter
When Grandad died I got his knife
I cleaned the kitchen and I didn't know why
Such is life as smoke in a sigh
You were well on your way by the day we arrived

Ah no frostbiter
ah waster of days
Oh no would we endure or?
Ah just waste away?

Your fourth grade friend in Afghanistan
who's helicopter crashed in the sand
Walked away with a scratch on her hand
It was all that she got from what I understand

Ah no frostbiter
Ah waster of days
Ah no would we endure or
Ah just waste away?

Two blue hairs stare down the bass guitar aisle
reminiscing about the band we played in as a child
swear to god we had the best singer in Ohio
they got crazy on blow so we never really made it past the first shows though

Ah no frostbiter
Ah waster of days
Ah no would we endure or
Ah just waste away?
Track Name: Pillar of Na
Somewhere
where strawberry's in season
ease off
all your old ought nots

Swallow
all your swollen thou shalls
Follow all yall's fallen off

Oh ouroboros
the cycle of the serpent
look close
it's something like a spring

Pull out
it looks like it's a helix
push in
and wear it like a ring

Shall I lay awake
Keeper on the watch
or the dozers off ?

Shall I lay to waste
the sleepers on the watch
with the knowers not ?

Tell me when
when the end is nigh
I'll sober up and come down in time

I ate my weight in your words
gnawing on your proverbs
now you know
so know better

Shall I lay awake
Keeper of the watch
or the dozers off ?

Shall I lay to waste
the sleepers on the watch
with the knowers not ?

Tell me when
when the end is nigh
I'll sober up and come down in time

I ate my weight in your words
gnawing on your proverbs
now you know
so know better

Call in I will always love you
to the radio
either version's cool
but I like the original

Be that as it may
in this antiquated way
it's saying something other than it did back in it's day

We all must get stoned
we all must get stoned alone and no show
We all must get stoned
we all must get stoned alone and no show

cura te ipsum
cura te ipsum
tip some back and then some
cura te ipsum
cura te ipsum
and then some

Hold on to the light
cause the light never holds on long

If leaving we're easy believe me that we'd be
long gone

Hold on to the light
cause the light never holds on long

If leaving we're easy believe me that we'd be
long gone

Turn all eternal
eternity round
the circle in circle
may be unbroken now

Turn all eternal
eternal the wheel
The circle in circle
may be unbroken still
