lyrics

Impressionist:

Lark of the moon when it bends its arm
Shutters and starlight all wet in the barn
Red rover clover, go ring the alarm
The sea has a shutter, my gutter-head smells it's salt

Ragweed and stink where my mouth should be
Blood in the holler, milk in the tree
Who out of you would remember me,
You're older my friend
At the end of your golden vault

So what's left to shadow and who to ride
When I've undone the blankets and the sheets inside
And what of your skulk
your ilk
your pride
your bevy
your kin
your massacre
flock and folk

Blood is a signal that means a thing
Like the names of the dead in a clover ring
Eye for an eye, a crown for a king, a laser for God, a thimble for someone small

Ounces of May in a tepid rain
This old ballerina will dance again
On tippy-top-toes til we all go lame
From coffee and tea and the magic from whence we came


Crater:

Soundlessly
Wordlessly
I have carved a Crater in your moon

All the sounds
Sleeping heads
All they tryin to catch you
Lasso
Croon

Is you is
Cain't you bite
It ain't right what's eating at you,
Bluebird

and Why don't you love me
You were put here to love me
I'm howl and I'm homely
I'm so tired and lonely
My friends number only
Myself and my homey
The Moon

Bubbles out
Deeds done right
Why'nt you hang a picture on your wall

When you dream
You alright
Why you feel the need to wake at all

It's different for no ones
The smart ones the slow ones
The hot ones the mad ones
the easily led ones
And I'm so tired and lonely
I'm howl and I'm homely
My friends number only
Myself and my homey
the Moon

Don't say I didn't warn ya
It's a burn that makes a tide
Reach inside my hollow barn-yah
There's not a lot of pride
Just kindle for the fire
Boom
Boom
Boom
Boom
Ba-da.

Soundlessly
Wordlessly
I have carved a crater for you
