01. Harvest Bell

Instrumental


02. At The Green Country Chapel

The date was set
By failed harvest
When it hit home
Invitations were sent
For their ghosts
And to arrive at winter's
Solstice, solstice

As the day rolled over
As the sun declined
At the chapel arrived
Like thieves in the night
On their way
Through the green country

As the day rolled over
As the sun declined
At the chapel arrived
Like thieves in the night
On their way
Through the green country

The finest tables were set
Under the elms of old
Where they waited
Trees were pruned
In the garden
To guide the strangers to the sun
Which they would become

As the day rolled over
As the sun declined
At the chapel arrived
Like thieves in the night
On their way
Through the green country

As the day rolled over
As the sun declined
At the chapel arrived
Like thieves in the night
On their way
Through the green country

Could you tell the score?
And how?
If the score is not written in numbers?

Could you tell the score?
And how?
If the score is not written in numbers?

As the day rolled over
As the sun declined
At the chapel arrived
Like thieves in the night
On their way
Through the green country

As the day rolled over
As the sun declined
At the chapel arrived
Like thieves in the night
On their way
Through the green country

Demands of murder
Like thieves in the night
Demands of murder
Like thieves in the night
Demands of murder
Like thieves in the night
Demands of murder


03. Code Of Surrender

Accusations
And shame of the kind
You would deny
If it did not shine like a light obeying

No switch or hour
Of each corroded day
Passing like shadows over heart

(Inside the moment)
(But outside of the code of this)

Motionless dawn
Ground to a halt
But breathing
Relief of surrender
To a great white abyss
Surrendered
Surrendered

Salvation from secrets
Of the kind you would deny
If they did not weigh
Like the cross created

As a burden to carry
Through each corroded day
Passing like shadows over heart

(Inside the moment)
(But outside of the code of this)

Motionless dawn
Ground to a halt
But breathing
Relief of surrender
To a great white abyss
Surrendered
Surrendered

Motionless dawn
Ground to a halt
But breathing
Relief of surrender
To a great white abyss
Surrendered
Surrendered
Surrendered


04. Armed

I do not know why
I am giving this to you
But here it is
The number of days left

Instead of
An ocean of time, I painted
Painted a house around you
And locked the door
Left you at the shore until came

Came the flood
No more can time bring mercy, mercy
Forgiveness
Ghosts can choose their houses to haunt

The thought of time
Passing, opened it for me
I'd never known
What I need or heard
What you really meant

By saying
Saying that I live a house that would
Collapse by any minute
Minute to come as if washed

Washed by flood
No more can time bring mercy, mercy
Forgiveness
Ghosts can choose their houses to haunt
Or time be disarmed
Like a weapon to stand still
From shores of time
We will be exiled into

A place where things obey
Rules laid down
Laws that are

A place where things obey
Rules laid down
And laws that are

Heavy like walls of stone
Like the shores washed by

Flood
No more can time bring mercy, mercy
Forgiveness
Ghosts can choose their houses to haunt
Flood
No more can time bring mercy, mercy
Forgiveness
Than ghosts can choose their houses to haunt

Heavy like walls of stone


05. Like Mute Companions

Dismantled our will
Once brave and firm
We took it apart
Like summertime sleep
We fooled it away
We fooled it away, yeah

Dismantled our speech
Once clear and so true
Leveled it to the ground
As if the sea had come
Claim its due

The promise of what would happen
Today replaced
With a promise of what we'd have in the
World to follow
World to follow
In the world to follow

It's the wait you compare
All wait against
When days like mute companions
It's the wait you compare
All wait against
Deliver willing herds into
It's the wait you compare
All wait against
Into the pale lavender blue
It's the wait you compare
All wait against
On days like mute companions

All who will find you
Will do what they must
To get from end to an end of their
Of their shameful days

All who will find you
Will do what they must
To get from end to an end of their
Of their shameful days

Shameful day

It's the wait you compare
All wait against
When days like mute companions
It's the wait you compare
All wait against
Deliver willing herds, oh, into
It's the wait you compare
All wait against
Into the pale lavender blue
It's the wait you compare
All wait against
On days like mute companions


06. Exhaled

Lying to liars
And stealing from thieves
Issued a feather
To build ourselves a faith

They stayed and broke the deal
All the fists we saw in the air
Were opened into hands
And now bone grinds like grain

From this house of loving hurt
Won't need those keys to leave
As these chimneys like lungs will exhale
You're uprising into free heavens
After it's parted from flesh

Building these windows
From stone and steel
To keep us
From seeing the skies full of birds

They said it was safer inside
All the smoke we saw in the air
Was all there was still free
And now bone grinds like grain

From this house of loving hurt
Won't need those keys to leave
As these chimneys like lungs will exhale
You're uprising into free heavens
After it's parted from flesh

From this house of loving hurt
You won't need those keys to leave
After dreams are pulled apart
From this house of loving hurt
You won't need those keys to leave

From this house of loving hurt
Won't need those keys to leave
As these chimneys like lungs will exhale
You're uprising into free, yeah, heavens
After it's parted from flesh

From this house of loving hurt
Won't need those keys to leave
After dreams are pulled apart
From this house of loving hurt
You won't need those keys to leave


07. Down To The Color Of The Eye

So much slower than
Our march they flew
Our guardian an
Angels who would hear
The true words

We would march
Across the plains and burn
Down all green and live
So bulletproof it was

So courageously
We invented the night
Drank the bottles dry
And engineered the sand
With godspeed

Sent it moving
Across the fields and closed
Down the blue sky
So bulletproof it was

The roads traveled
And the ones ahead
Are nothing compared
To the miles grown
Inside of us
Inside of us

And every detail
Of life's machinery
Out on display
Down to the lovely shadows that fall

Every detail
Of life's machinery
Out on display
Down to the color of the eye

And every detail
Of life's machinery
Out on display
Down to the lovely shadows that fall

(Upon this Sodom we have built)
(Upon this Sodom we have built)

The roads traveled
And the ones ahead
Are nothing compared
To the miles grown

The roads traveled
And the ones ahead
Are nothing compared
To the miles grown
Inside

And every detail
Of life's machinery
Out on display
Down to the color of the eye

And every detail
Of life's machinery
Out on display
Down to the shadows that fall

Every detail
(Every detail)
Of life's machinery
(Of life's machinery)
Out on display
(On display)
Down to the color of the eye

Every detail
(Every detail)
Of life's machinery
(Of life's machinery)
Out on display
Down to the lovely shadows that fall


08. Incendere

A strange generation
Now at watch by the rain of fire
Decommissioned
From the drag of days
From birth to grave, yeah

I prayed
I prayed and kneeled
By the image
Made of silver, light, and time
I lit and burned
My incense

Like seed
You would cast
The hope I always wanted to know
To reach inside (inside)
For its heart to bring it back
In these hands

I prayed
I prayed and kneeled
By the image
Made of silver, light, and time
I lit and burned
My incense
But the altar was so wrong

To this day I can't live with
Those ricochets from silence
To this day I can't live with
Those ricochets from silence

I prayed
I prayed and kneeled
By the image
Made of silver, light, and time
I lit and burned
My incense
But the altar was so wrong
I prayed and kneeled
By the image
But the altar was so wrong


09. All You Kept Free

This piece of evidence
Rendered useless
All you kept under threats
Prep of a burial under a cloud
All the chains you broke
Evoked the mirth of spring

But hope dispersed
Dispersed in homes and haunts
Like mercy
That now lays in pieces

By the promise
Broken down by murder
Striking life
Down and harvesting its own
From the earth
Like it was a season
Making room
Making room for the spring

So here they arrived at haven
And thought they could stay
By this river and breathe
Free of a burial under a cloud
All the chains you broke
Evoked the mirth of spring

But hope dispersed
Dispersed in homes and haunts
Like mercy
That now lays in pieces

By the promise
Broken down by murder
Striking life
Down and harvesting its own
From the earth
Like it was a season
Making room
Making room for the spring

11. Everything Dies

I loved my aunt
But she died
And my uncle Lou
Then he died

I'm searching for something
Which can't be found
But I'm hoping
I still dream of dad
Though he died

Everything dies
Everything dies

My ma's so sick
She might die
Though my girls quite fit
She will die

I'm still looking for someone
Who was around
Barely coping
Now I hate myself
Wish I'd die

Everything dies
Everything dies
Everything dies
Everything

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-why?
Oh God, I miss you
I really miss you
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-why?
Oh God, I miss you
I really miss you, yeah

Everything dies
Everything dies
Everything dies
Everything
(Go, go, go)
