    "Quarters In A Pocket"

    "Quarters In A Pocket"


    Like the setting sun, and more than anyone
    You look warmer when you're sinkin' down
    Find your favorite tree, and come sit next to me
    I've a sheet that's softer than the ground

    This time spent with you feels like charcoal sketches for a painting
    That you won't let me see
    But I've come to find that comfort comes like quarters in a pocket
    I thought were lost to me

    All your favorite clothes, and all the pain we know
    Came from those you favor for a time
    Take it off your chest, and throw your loneliness
    In a surly river, cold and wild

    This time spent with you feels like charcoal sketches for a painting
    That you won't let me see
    But I've come to find that comfort comes like quarters in a pocket
    I thought were lost to me

    Lie about your sign, and hang your worry line
    On a missin' poster for a dog
    Find a promise ring, and blind affinity
    For a match the gypsy said was wrong

    This time spent with you feels like charcoal sketches for a painting
    That you won't let me see
    But I've come to find that comfort comes like quarters in a pocket
    Discovered accidentally

    "Rabbit Will Run"

    "Rabbit Will Run"


    Last I saw mother she rose from a chair
    When they caught me I'd just finished combing my hair
    'Cause a rabbit will run, and the colt hasn't long with the mare
    We've all learned the earth while we carried the throne
    We dove under the rivers and under our clothes
    Now I still have a prayer, as sure as my settling bones
    Last I saw mother she covered my ears
    When they caught me I offered the captain a beer
    'Cause a rabbit will run, and the lion has nothing to fear
    We bricked up the garden and oh, what it means
    And we've all kissed a virgin as if she were clean
    And I still have a prayer, despite all the colors I've seen
    And judgment is just like a cup that we share
    I'll jump over the wall and I'll wait for you there
    Well past the weeds and our vision of things to come
    We've all heard the rooster and all been denied
    And we've seen through the haze and the spit in our eyes
    And I still have a prayer, a well-weathered word to the wise
    Last I saw mother she smelled like a rose
    When they caught me the captain, he opened my nose
    'Cause a rabbit will run, and the wind takes a bird where it blows
    We all traded lovers and woke up alone
    And we clapped for the king, though our fingers were cold
    And I still have a prayer, 'cause I love what I cannot control
    Once I saw mother, she acted surprised
    When they caught me the captain, he cried like a child
    'Cause a rabbit will run, and good dogs together go wild
    We all live in grace at the end of the day
    And we've armed all the children we thought we'd betrayed
    And I still have a prayer, but too few occasions to pray
    And judgment is just like a cup that we share
    I'll jump over the wall and I wait for you there
    Well past the weeds and our vision of things to come
    And we've all found a reason for hiding the gun
    And we've helped out a few if we've hurt anyone
    And I still have a prayer and so be it, I've done what I've done
    Last I saw mother, she blew me a kiss
    When they caught me the cups caught the blood from my wrist
    'Cause a rabbit will run, and a pig has to lay in its piss
    We've all given half to the hand in our face
    We've all taken a stone from the holiest place
    And I still have a prayer, and I've furthered the world in my wake

    "Radio War"

    "Radio War"


    Did the wine make her dream
    Of the far distant spring
    Or a bed full of hens
    Or the ghost of a friend

    All the while that she wept
    She had a gun by her bed
    And a letter he wrote
    From a dry, foundered boat

    And the train track will take
    All the wounded ones home
    And I'll be alone
    Fare thee well Sara Jones

    Now we lie on the floor
    While the radio war
    Finds its way through the air
    Of the dead market square

    And the beast never seen
    Licks its red talons clean
    Sara curses the cold
    "No more snow, no more snow, no more snow"

    "Red Dust"

    "Red Dust"


    Dust gets red, and red dust plays
    On the wind near Daniel's place
    Danny's sick and smaller boy
    Rhythm lingers on and on
    On and on, on and on

    Dust gets dead the sun gone down
    Danny's boy lies in the ground
    Guitar on the dead boy's chest
    Devil's granting a last request
    Play on and on, on and on

    "Resurrection Fern"

    "Resurrection Fern"


    In our days we will live
    Like our ghosts will live...
    Pitching glass at the cornfield crows
    And folding clothes

    Like stubborn boys across the road
    We'll keep everything...
    Grandma's gun and the black bear claw
    That took her dog

    When sister Laurie says, "Amen"
    We won't hear anything...
    The ten-car trains will take that word
    That fledgling bird

    And the fallen house across the way
    It'll keep everything...
    The baby's breath
    Our bravery wasted and our shame

    And we'll undress beside the ashes of the fire
    Both our tender bellies wound in baling wire
    All the more a pair of underwater pearls
    Than the oak tree and its resurrection fern

    In our days we will say
    What our ghosts will say...
    We gave the world what it saw fit
    And what'd we get?

    Like stubborn boys with big green eyes
    We'll see everything...
    In the timid shade of the autumn leaves
    And the buzzard's wing

    And we'll undress beside the ashes of the fire
    Our tender bellies are wound around in baling wire
    All the more a pair of underwater pearls
    Than the oak tree and its resurrection fern

    "Right For Sky"

    "Right For Sky"


    Know this house that I call home
    The gentle milk was happy just to flow
    No better tomcats took their licks in turn
    Some branches fall to open arms
    Some paradises are a bridge too far
    God's in the treetop making mockingbirds
    If I could choose, I would do things right
    Teach my dreams to look me in the eye
    Sing my heart out into my hands
    Shine where light demands

    When I lose my feet in my father's shoes
    When I take your flesh with my false tooth
    When I bend until I break in two
    Call me a fool being great
    In the leaves of the world
    The leaves of the world

    The wind blows all the wild away
    This house was kind as every hiding place
    Bones of a hardest offering to burn
    That dog will bark, though no one's there
    This man went mad breaking his easy chair
    Sing me the softest heart I've ever heard
    It's only right how this trail goes cold
    Moonlight gliding through our empty clothes
    Know I'm warm when a cloud rolls by
    Rolling right for sky

    When I lose my feet in my father's shoes
    When I take your flesh with my false tooth
    When I bend until I break in two
    Call me a fool being great
    In the leaves of the world
    The leaves of the world

    "Sacred Vision"

    "Sacred Vision"


    There's no way to temper your thirst
    With lasting impressions or pictures of home
    There's no way to grow that don't hurt
    She growled from the station then hung up the phone

    There's no sacred vision like her
    No eye-crushing mountain or jewelry to wear
    There's no granted wish I prefer
    Then she to be with me, for us to be there

    I'd rather to be all alone
    Forgiveness is fickle when trust is a chore
    It's not every sin that's atoned
    I heard her speak softly then heard her no more

    There's no sacred vision like her
    No eye-crushing mountain or jewelry to wear
    There's no granted wish I prefer
    Then she to be with me, for us to be there

    "Sailor To Siren"
    (with Jesca Hoop)

    "Sailor To Siren"
    (with Jesca Hoop)



    This tenderness comes as a surprise
    Drinking where the riverbed was dry
    Trees in the wind trembling with love

    That morning light drew you out the door
    Mama didn't need you anymore
    She pointed in night but you saw the stars
    Brace yourself and nestle into me
    Bear it all like falling autumn leaves
    You don't even know me that well

    Now every blossom's ready to explode
    Rooted in the cracks along the road
    The world is a dream that we could freeze
    While distant water shows me where to run
    Papa let me know I'm not enough
    Took out the life left me the hope
    You sailor or the siren in the tide
    Trust the tiny ocean and besides
    You don't even know me that well

    Your song is warm and coming through the wall
    Hearts are only strangers after all
    You don't even know me that well

    "Serpent Charmer"

    "Serpent Charmer"


    There's a woman here with a broken record player
    And a dusty compass off to map the country's new behavior
    Strange words that we hold on back into the river
    Brave boys in the empty coats of men
    There's a kitchen timer, distractions and reminders
    That the rolly-pollies started crawling cross your family's china
    Strange words that we hold on back into the river
    Dead dogs only want to live again
    There's a serpent charmer, pair of shoes and wander
    Speeding ticket, you're not leaving that last land of slaughter
    Strange words that we hold on back into the river
    Good girls come and kick you in the shin
    There's a hopeful hunter with a hapless sense of wonder
    And a million claw marks on the rock he hid his money under
    Strange words that we hold on back into the river
    And made men only want to live again

    "Sing Song Bird"

    "Sing Song Bird"


    Give me your shoulder, I'm a sing song bird
    My savior says that I'm the words
    I map across a daylight blinding you
    Chicken-boned and with a ten-cent bunk
    Claimed Jesus spoke, though I was drunk
    Untied my shoe and told me what to do
    Warn the boys are about the dimmer rooms
    That try to woo them all with their cheap perfume
    Rooms like this, a pathway to the fall
    Warn the girls about the dimmer stars
    That try to woo them all with the cheap guitars
    The morning fades the glitter on their song
    Warn the boys are about the dimmer rooms
    That try to woo them all with their cheap perfume
    The sun don't sweat the souls that get the call
    Warn the girls about the dimmer stars
    That try to woo them all with the cheap guitars
    Dear Lord, give me the strength to shade you all
