Track Name: clarissa
clarissa, go uptown
and buy the flowers yourself
a few short hours more
the party's such a bore

light a cigarette
allow yourself to rest
burn your wedding gown
black cars all around

because the river's arms will gladly pull you down
god knows there's a million ways to drown

if everything's a lark
and everything's a plunge
then septimus' fall
will validate it all

because the river's arms will gladly pull you down
god knows there's a million ways to drown
when this party's poor excuse is through
another one will follow and i'll still love you
Track Name: the world voice
i heard the summer sea
murmuring to the shore
some endless story of a wrong
the whole world must deplore

i heard the mountain wind
conversing with the trees
of an old sorrow of the hills
mysterious as the sea's

take me with you
take me there
rip me right out of my brother's arms
just to take me there

and all that haunted day
it seemed that i could hear
the echo of an ancient speech
ring in my listening ear

and then it came to me
that all that i had heard
was my own heart in the sea's voice
and the wind's lonely word

take me with you
take me there
rip me right out of my brother's arms
just to take me there
Track Name: matt & elaina
walk down the aisle
dressed in white
the union of souls
for a lifetime

promise to give
one another
in front of our lord
praising god

man and wife in love

matt & elaina
Track Name: midnight playwright
midnight playwright, i admire you
every line breathes
glory, grace, truth, beauty, wonder
hallelujah
Track Name: rumour mill
my mind
oh, the things you'll find:
alberta skies, a roll of dimes
surefire, as time goes by
never have i ever felt so insured

sights seen are breathing in
drinking from the stalest wine
pour me another crooked coast
never have you ever looked so good

tell them i'll say "hello"
from my heart
my darkest heart

tell them i'm singing low
from my heart
my proudest heart
Track Name: distance
laura, there are things that
outweigh here and now:
vomit on the floor, 
the fear of letting go

we may not catch that bastard
but we'll pray for his return
for when i know his name
i'll beat him just the same

if wonder is a posture
that's held in low esteem
the brownness of your curls
will take over the world
Track Name: haultain
have you ever felt useless?
because i have raised ten years of contempt
and harvested nothing but death

fire once walked by my side
but my tongue was tied so tight
and satan laughed in six-eight time

when our marriage did end
one million silverfish crawled into my head
and breathed forgiveness back into my breath 

cutting it close
you tore your clothes
no man could say no 
how could i say no
