Track Name: Beacons
around your neck is a garland of stars
and up above the fields we watch the cars
the highway's the horizon

and i can only imagine the way they felt
new stars being born

to lead the way to the place where he lay

i've been busy building beacons every night
i've been busy building beacons
POOLS OF LIGHT

to keep me warm
in the sand and by the shore
in the dark is where they are
watching cars

and i can only imagine the way they felt
new stars being born

to lead the way to some savior away in some manger
i know how it feels to find a room of ones own
at least for a moment
Track Name: The Fox Song
lean into lonesome crowd
i've been busy looking round for you
only i see the way that you need all of the taming you can get
cause the fox wants to be loved

you are the only one in the world i can see
(how much more can i take)
so hold on to me

all that the dog wants is to run in the crowd
and all that the fox needs is love in the empty house

so when you're done call my name
i'll come back with my refrain
i will say all the same things that you love to hear

so looking out this lonesome crowd
lost and found for some time now
where is the light i seek? where is the gravity?

i'm looking for company
i know you're looking too
so follow through
Track Name: Bird Gerhls
dip your hands in
winter caused me to fossilize
all this honey
dripping down my wrists my eyes

then i see you
something seems to fall inside
cause i know that tonight's that night
unfold my wings i see the sky

oh when will i get to be a bird
when will i get to shout these words
when will i get to be a bird
because bird gerhls go to heaven

stand up straighter
wipe the dust out of your eyes
believe you're greater
don't let that honey calcify

cause oh when will i
when will i get to be a bird
when will i get to shout these words
when will i get to be a bird
because bird gerhls go to heaven

hallelujah bird gerhls can fly
Track Name: Rabbit Hole
broke through the ice and down you fell
past the rabbits hole past the wishing well
down at the bottom

the windows look out like eyes in the night
you woke up gasping oh you woke with surprise
down at the bottom what's waiting for you?

you went down the rabbits hole
and baby i followed you
went down the rabbits hole
and now i'm gasping for air

tell me what you want baby
tell me what you think you need
tell me who you got
tell me why you make your heart bleed
over and over
i'm turning over away from you

i went down the rabbits hole
i was following you
i went down the rabbits hole
and now i'm gasping for air

anything for me down there?
