Hush
Coming in close
Phew
Here, here, here
Shall we start here
Shall we start
Shall we start here
Shall we
Or there
Shall we start here...
Or there

Went South for days
All for finding out
Whether to walk away
Fall out of awe or
See it through
See right through

Went South one day
What has taken shape
Untethered mind escapes
Fall out of war
Or see it through
See right through ooh ooh

Warm cold bitten mind
Warm all tethered words
Warm these best laid plans
Warm then take them away

Warm loom’s frail threads
Warm indolent face
Warm these tired hands
Warm infinite shades of grace
Mmmmm

South cold bitten mind erased
South all tethered words escape
South all best laid plans give way
South please take it all away
South loom’s tattered threads gain strength
South awaken each worn face
South revive each tired hand
South in infinite shades of grace
Oh oh oh - oh oh oh - Ah - Oh…..

Went South for days
Untethered mind escapes
Went South one day
South adorned new ways
Went South for days
South in infinite shades of grace

Hi...
Along the way
Along the way
See your face
Hold your hand
And smile
Into your eyes
Hi...

Here to see now now now now now
Here to sing now now now now now
Here to see now now now now now
Here to sing now now now now now
Embrace what’s seen now now now now now
I believe now now now now now

On such days
[It] Never goes dark
On such nights
[We] Never need light...

Here to see, now now now now now
Here to sing, now now now now now
Embrace what’s seen, now now now now now
I believe, now now now now now

Hi...
See your face
Hold your hand
And smile
Into your eyes
Hi...

E-mancipate me from
A-nticipating every
S-ojourn
T-ale not happening

E-xcavate me from my own
A-rtillery
S-ave me from
T-aking all that’s left for me

Left, left, left right left...
Call and I’ll respond
Too soon we all fall down

Left, left, left right left...
Infantry in desert beige
Pixelated future prey
Left, left, left right left...

Ante up ante up
Put ‘em up now march
Ante up ante up
But this march is for what charge
Can you tell me, frankly
The call of the tale not happening
And convince me, you authority
So hey, your call
It’s not so powerful
Call the spade a spade
Emancipate

Left, left, left right left…
Big guns and bayonets
Seek differences in flesh

Oh I’m not afraid
That stuff’s so far away
And I’m not so phased
Not from so far away
But it’s a shame
And who knows who’s to blame
Should I be scared
(Is it my same fears)

Left, left, left right left...
Covert in mutual fear
Fear death is their next rest
Left, left, left right left...

E-mancipate us from
A-nticipating every
S-ojourn
T-ale not happening

E-xcavate us from our own
A-rtillery
S-ave us from
T-aking all that’s left for us

Ease the longing
Still the fury
All’s responding
In such fear and worry

Save us from ourselves

Look all the shades
In the sea
Seasons change
And we
Look all the shades
In seasons
Seas change
And we...

The frost the fire
Our quest our mire
Strong winds of change
Ethereal Exchange
Change...
Hahaha..tally em up...

In all the miracles
Of every magic show
In all the ways I go
I will

I will, I’ll fall
Fall I will
I will, I’ll rise
Rise, I will
Yes, I will...

True...
North, Etoile du Nord…

So Polaris
Shall I trust that
What’s inside of me here
Is what shines there
Etoile du Nord

So Polaris
I’ll continue
Pull from me
What I see shines out there
Etoile du Nord

I, I want to be..I, I want to feel
I, I want to be..I, I want to feel
I, I want to be..I want to feel
I want to be..
Who You see

Your light distinct often succumbs to fog
The manic haze of life’s sirens call
No fault of yours it’s inevitable
Tie me to the mast, you’ll see what’s vulnerable
I’ll writhe enslaved by sly beauty’s cave
Troll through the fog nearly for too long
Hope flickers, faith wanes, finally I wake
To the shock of those great big motherfucking rocks
There to sink me deep, there to deceive
The guide, your light that’s charting me
This grand display, discourse with the haze
Time’s up for now, how I passed it, well
Your cast so serene gives me more to believe
Than allure, escape, you know, the death of me
I’ll stay the course as shit rocks this boat
There to disclose what I need to know

Looks so small
From here
No needle can aim
Where my needle aims

Rain sighs
Hits below
Reflections shown

Land moves
Clouds rescind
Shows light within

Space Infinite grace
Holds the place
Of uncertainty of change

I’ve found a place
In uncertainty in change

Rain sighs
Hits below
Reflections shown

Tick tick tock...

I’ve fallen for the land
That my voice once said
Is the place where love
Will fall on me
And well I know, and well I know

So I’ve fallen for the land
That a whisper set free
Will be the place where love
Enraptures me
And well I know, yeah yeah that I don’t know
What I don’t know, let go
And what I don’t know..talk..let go...
Tick tick tock..hey...
What’s it say
What is that you say

Threw my hope in a far flung town
In a phantom tale
All I heard it say was this way
Said come a little closer
I’ve been coming close
Saying yes and saying no
And I know, and I know
In a stark flash said to avast
Ease your thoughts and place your aim
And I know, and I know
That I know
That I don’t know
And what I don’t know
And what I can’t know
And what I can’t see

Lo, lo and behold...
The wild wild west

Feel it calling
You want me, I’m on your mark
Lo, all the mountains
Lo, gold, all this land
Into your windstorms
I’ll make you shadows

To our new land
We ride
Lo and behold
Dust is warm

And so it goes
All got a destiny
Let’s manifest
In the wild wild west
Lo, lo behold
This dust is still warm

Aye,
We all got a destiny
So lo, let’s go and manifest
This land is ours to claim
So let’s ride our horses til the sun does set

What’s theirs is ours
So we’ll cause a war
Yes, 1812

What’s theirs is ours
So let’s cause a war
We won’t make a mess

Tell our sons and daughters
Lo, it’s all for you
‘Cept this Lawlessness

Motor cars we’ll ride ‘em through
Making big ‘ole plans for it’s ours to choose

Them kids, all years from now
They’ll hike it west as the sun sets
Them kids with their big ole dreams
Their big ole dreams with no consequence

Navigate through shadows
And bright surprise, grand meadows
There they’ll lay their arms up, watching the moon rise and the stars above
And waste away the hours and tell their friends all the stories that they like to hear
My mama says make the most of that mess, do what’s best for you and go west

[Lo...
Behold hold...
The West...
Gold...
This land...
So when...
And how...
With whom...
For what...
Manifest this destiny
Manifest destiny manifest destiny manifest destiny
Can’t see see...
Far enough far enough
Enough is enough
Must navigate navigate navigate…]
