Track Name: Sister Mary/Welcome Home
Sister Mary save me from the evil in this room
Sister Mary save me from the evil in this room
Track Name: To You
(Cold world, cold world)
To you who is running, running, running
To you who is rubbing your hungry tummy
To you who is freezing freezing living
In a cave I saw you frozen, sitting
To you who is angry, breaking, breathing
You are my heart, tail in mouth eating
To you all falling, all weeping
Neverending dust you must keep sweeping
To you who are demon-winged flying
Dream soft sleep now on a cherub's chest lying
To you who in a treasure chest stay hiding
Your secret light I'm forever finding
(Cold world, cold world)
Track Name: Who Were In I?
Who were in I?
That I let the spirit so quickly divide
Who were inside?
That I let fall my only love into a lie

That night I saw the chorus's horrible frown
The monsters came and ripped the chorus right down
Feathers and wings fell and open chests they were spread
And upon the chorus's hearts the monsters they fed

Who were in I?
That I was not looking towards your light
Who were inside?
That I let fall my only love into a lie

Upon the floor of the forest the unicorn lies
Her chorus singing and ringing her aching notes high
If love could save her this won't be the way she will die
And if love could save her then so could it save you and I
Who were in I?
Who were inside?

(oooh, ahhh)
Track Name: Which Branch?
No I was not scared, you were way up there
Your arms so strong, you held a long time to the tree
Setting your spirits free

(mmm)
Which branch would break? you said
And which branch would shake instead?
And which chance would make you dead?
And which thought inside your head?
And which thought inside your head
Would set you free, finally?

There was no hand, there was no hope
And the holy rope was let down slow
And falling so far below

(mmm)
And from your nest today
Which bird would fly away?
And which bird would make you stay?
And which bird would take away
The pain from all your days
And set you free, finally?
Track Name: Shadows
We were driving back to our house
Through the car windows we were looking out
And the moon so high, like a flashlight shown down
Into the dark woods where shadows move around

It was when we weren't thinking
And I was not to be drinking
The shadows came and whispered: "You must rely on your self!"
Then they took my hopes and dreams, my love and my health

Further on down the road we drove
Shapes starting moving out in the cold
It had eyes I swear, staring straight into me
You said: "What has you scared, that was just a falling leaf"

It was when we weren't living
And to me you were not to be giving
The shadows came and whispered: "You must run for your life!
For it's so cold out here and we just want to come inside"

That fall was the end of us all
Sometimes you can still hear its call
And you, you will remember, you will
And you, you will remember, you will

(ahhh)
Track Name: Stone & Sticks
When the lady she saw you there
She came from a home made of wood and bricks
Her eyes fixed on you, she looked inside
She said you were made of stone and sticks

When I was younger I was not like this
My body made of sunlight drips
When I grew older through fits and fits
My body made of moonlight drips

But now I am just like you
I creak and crack through and through
Our bodies made of stone and sticks
Broken bones and heavy heads and aching wrists

("If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine")
Track Name: Last Day (2012 Bird & Bells)
(((catbird)))

All these days you just watch go
When the sun hung low its light did not show
All these days just went away
And the chances they held are not held today

And what if this was your very last day
And the wishes you made, ungranted they stay
And what if this was your very last day
And the things never made, unmade they will stay

All these days you just watch go
When the sun hung low its light did not show
All these days just went away
And the chances they held are not held today

And what if this was your very last day
And the wishes you made, ungranted they stay
And what if this was your very last day
And things never made, unmade they will stay
And how will you ever sleep?
And how will you ever wake?
And when you rise, what will you say
To those that look and then look away?

(mocking bird)
Track Name: Before The Tigers Came
(The last Christmas we were all together: "Okay, where are the candles?", "…especially in that part of your life, if you need to order today's lesson on an audio cassette…")
Track Name: Oh, Skeleton!
Oh, oh skeleton! you made me dead again
An hour ago and nothin's gonna bring me back to life
Unless you let me go, oh, skeleton!
You made me dead again
An hour ago and nothin's gonna bring me back to life
Unless you let me go, oh, skeleton!
You made me dead again
An hour ago and nothin's gonna bring me back to life
Unless you let me go, oh, skeleton!
You made me dead again
An hour ago and nothin's gonna bring me back to life
Unless you let me go! Oh, oh, oh, oh!

So keep on breathing skeleton!
Hold that chin of yours up to the sky
I wish I could be there when you die!

And ooh, ooh skeleton! I never had a friend like you!
Always there for me, always black and blue!
And ooh, ooh skeleton! I think I fell again!
Around your bones I broke into a million pieces inside you!
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh!

Oh, oh, skeleton! I think I'm dead again
An hour ago and nothin's gonna bring me back to life
Unless you let me go!
Track Name: The Fountain
(((magic)))
I don't know where you'll take me tonight, I'll gladly die in your eyes
I don't know where you'll take me tonight, I'll gladly die in your eyes
Because I have such a lost story to tell in Hell
I don't know where you'll take me tonight, I'll gladly die in your eyes
I don't know where you'll take me tonight, I'll gladly die in your eyes
Because I have such a lost story to tell in Hell
I drank from the fountain where the others had died
I drank from the fountain where the others had died
And the spirits they came looking for the perfect place to hide
They went into my mouth and all the way inside
And they sang: "La-dee-da-dee-da-da! Da-da-dee-da-da-da-da-dee-da-da! La-da-da! La-dee-da-dee-da-da! Da-da-dee-da-da-da-da-dee-da-da! La-la!"
Track Name: The Summer Of The BBQ Fairy (Fox Apologizing To The Deer)
We can be dragons all day in the sky, I swear to you child that I wouldn't lie
We flapped our wings and then went to the store
Pick up the things that we need and bought more
What is this ghost that lives in my heart? Watch me as I fall apart
What is this song that he makes me sing?
How many heads did we sink into the sea?
I wish I could pluck them from their graves
Blow new life back into their face
Hold them up high to thee sun's rays
Give them so many so many more days
Oh, who is this neighbor that knocks on my door and then disappears?
And all that is left his skeleton key and his sailor's beard
Or is he a prince from a far away land, then where is his hand?
Or is he a pirate landlocked and drunk? His ship is a house that has sunk
Or he is he an old man like you and I? Just waiting to die
We can be dragons all day in the sky, I swear to you child that I wouldn't lie
Track Name: Fiery Was The Path (Mega-Crossed By Demons)
Oh! Dee-dee-dee-dee
Oh! Dee-dee-dee-dee
I was just watching you sleep in bed
Dee-dee-dee-dee
Oh! Dee-dee-dee-dee
I was just watching you dream again
Dee-dee-dee-dee
Oh! Dee-dee-dee-dee
And who's that riding in your hair when you walk through the fire?
Who's gonna make your bed when you become too tired?
When is this gonna end?
And when is this gonna end?
And who's gonna wash our hands when we're finished with this world?
Who's gonna wash our hands when we're finished with this world?
Who's gonna wash our hands when we're finished with this world?
Oh! Dee-dee-dee
Oh! Dee-dee-dee-dee
I was just watching this life pass by
Dee-dee-dee-dee
I was just getting tired myself
Dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee
And will we wake up, with our hands tied in knots?
And when we make up, this is our whole life forgotten
This is when you hold my hand and never ever look back
And this is when you hold my hand and never ever look back
But who's gonna wash that hand when it's finished with this world?
Who's gonna wash that hand when it's finished with this world?
Who's gonna wash our hands when we're finished with this world?
Oh!
Ohhh
Track Name: (The Log Lady Speaks To Laura Before She Enters The Roadhouse)
("When this kind of fire starts, it is very hard to put out. The tender boughs of innocence burn first, and the wind rises, and then.. all goodness is in jeopardy")
Track Name: I Made A Crown/Towering Down
Once in a while I feel like a child
And I do not forget to smile
And will you walk into the woods with me?
And will you bend down on your knees?
I made a crown from the forest down
And will you be my queen?

Once in a while I feel like an old man
And I do not wish his cold hand
And will you walk into the woods with me?
And will you bend down on your knees?
I made a crown from the forest down
And will you be my queen?

Once in a while I feel more alive than
The sun that gave birth to me and this sky
And will you walk into the woods with me?
And will you bend down on your knees?
I made a crown from the forest down
And will you be my queen?

Once in a while I feel almost dead
But I will lift up this tired head
And will you walk into the woods with me?
And will you bend down on your knees?
I made a crown from the forest down
And will you be my queen?

I left the water on, too long that I drowned again
And I watched the water roll down from your crown
And I will always have missed that first kiss
And I sometimes wish that I could have died
And you will always fly as high as the towers in the sky
And you who knows whose hand to hold when you cry, where was I?

And I left the oven on, too long that I burned up inside
I watched the fire climb from your neck to your chin to your eyes
And I will always have missed that first kiss
And I sometimes wish that I could have died
And you will always fly as high as the towers in the sky
And you who knows whose hand to hold when you cry, where was I?

And I went for a walk in the woods, I got lost for the rest of my life
And the wolves they follow me, and oh they will eat me alive
And I will always have missed that first kiss
And I sometimes wish that I could have died
And you will always fly as high as the towers in the sky
And you who knows whose hand to hold when you cry, where was I?
Track Name: & Now, Disappear Into The Forgotten Works
(((forever)))
