Track Name: All My Sisters
All My Sisters full of rage
Stand outside the circle
They drew in flames
All My Sisters full of rage
They'll stoke your pyres
But you'll dig their graves

Take my sinews and weave them into string
Knot me a noose from which my hope can
Swing
I'll burn my silhouette into every cliff
And field
With each harvest my body will yield

And death will have no dominion,
Over me.
Track Name: Cavebirds
Cavebirds

Beneath the rock a glowworm seams
Of porcelain tiles or faucets gleam
What once was function's taken form
An ancient growth
A crevasse yawn
I beat my fist against the stone
Stalactites chime like hammer on bone
Ancestral chorus of skin on skin
The ringing dulls
The dulling rings.

The calcite is misleading
These walls were made from lovers
Secreting
I place my tongue against the salt
Rivers run around my feet like moats.

I carve my sigil in the wall
I place my crystals in the bowl
The walls weep with lovers sweat
Ancestral rivers of joy and regret
And as that liquid meets the day
A mist whispers
Rises to say,

Your sighs, your sighs
Are like cavebirds
Flown into the light
Your cries, your cries
A chorus of horns
Thrown into the dawn.

Echoes shatter off the water like wings
The ringing dulls
The dulling rings
I beat my fist against the stone
Stalactites chime like hammer on bone
Your sighs, your sighs
Are like cavebirds
Flown into the light.
Track Name: Garnets
You'll see my eyes in pools of garnet
You'll see my spine in Tallinn's towers
You'd float my body down the Rhine dear
To watch it swallowed by another's mouth.

Sweet sanguine, marry me
In a communion of violence
A reunion of my blood to the soil
Sweet sanguine languish in me
Where the folds of my skin might open up
And let you in for a while.

And I am trying to break free
But I am woven by what limits me
These silken walls, these sinewed halls
They bend and keel but will not yield
And I am trying to break free
But I am woven by what limits me.

You'll see my eyes in pools of garnet
You'll see my spine in Tallinn's towers
You'd float my body down the Rhine dear
To watch it swallowed by another's mouth.
A host of voices, a Slavic choir sings
My spirit to the sound
You'd float my body down the Rhine dear
To watch it swallowed by another's mouth.
Track Name: Offerings
Bring your offerings
Down to the harbour
Lay them on that stony shore
Where the gods of lust and thunder
Will delight and seas will boil

Your blood vibrates all into shapes
All into patterns a snowflake makes
A thousand empty nautilus shells
Moan in the gales like wedding bells

Bring your offerings down to the harbour
Shroud them in that kelping night
There you'll find that love
you've longed for
in the glowing green algae light

Your blood vibrates all into shapes
All into patterns a snowflake makes
A thousand empty nautilus shells
Moan in the gales like wedding bells
