INTO THE DARKENED SUNWORLD Stars scatter like fire seeds Hooter calling in the black woods I am breathing in the darkness My rings ache Roots in the alldark grow Throw me in the fire, and watch me as I burn Stars scatter like dead seeds over the darkened sunworld I am breathing in the darkness My rings ache Roots in the alldark grow Throw me in the fire, and watch me as I burn Smokesnakes with smutflies climb high into the darkened sunworld Throw me in the fire, and watch me as I burn

ICE Breathe in, seedfriend, to one old and ringwise; for the ice do come, and the ice do go for the ice do come, and the ice do go and the ice be seedfoe the ice be blossomblister Winter’s a cold hearted friend who takes more than she gives Well I’m no hunter gatherer, so how then will you live? When it’s oh so cold out here, Oh so cold out here… And I am my treehood as my livings tremble to the branchbend It’s time to make my amends I am Heartwood and I’m afraid

KINRADE Hurtling backwards, hungover, I travel on trains Re-tracing your pace in an alleyway air raid Growing pains Partially painted green cracked plastic Drainage climbing frames And the fields are full of you, and the trees are full of you I would follow you into the Mountain, rocky and tumultuous I can't pretend it wasn't slightly messing up the both of us Especially me Coach trips to futile kettles of fish, I wandered through wars Studio ceilings squint up ladders, sellotape games on floors A leg long hedgehog the head and the mouth holding stories were yours And the rooms are full of you, and the rooms are full of you

THE ONLY WORDS I’ve been up & down this house, these walls, Have heard the stories, the triumphs, the falls And these stairs may creak, but the silence they seek Is the seemingly only word they can speak, But the only words, the only words I know Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown I’ve been down and out, so high, so low I’ve been terrified when I’ve looked at you In the stillness I find a peace of mind But I will never give you a piece of mine But the only words, the only words I know Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown I’ve been waiting by the window, waiting by the phone I’ve been etching an escape plan for sixty seconds on my own And your face may be smiling, but I know what you’re hiding There’s no way you are leaving, you're waiting for me to go But the only words, the only words I know Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown The only voice I can replicate Is my own and the reasons to sleep create But you can’t take my dreams, no you can’t read my thoughts And you won’t take my freedom, of this I am sure But the only words, the only words I know Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown

SUN SETS FIRE Ruby red wine illuminates the autumn sky I watch the leaves tumble from the trees singing the same lullaby As the sun sets fire to the mountain high, I know I’m falling, falling, falling - falling for the fall The winter is close, it’s dark, but still I have light, I’m like the leaves, I will let go, I’ll let this season take flight, And as the sun sets fire to the mountain high, I know I’m falling, falling, falling - falling for the fall Nothing stays the same, prepare to change, to live or to die, The naked branches show that everything will fade with time, And as the sun sets fire to the mountain high, I know I’m falling, falling, falling - falling for the fall

TRAXX (FOR THE RIVER) “Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled, I am not on the map; yesterday is no tomorrow And I won’t look back, & I won’t let go when this ocean overflows…” She knows she will dry, as she stands in the rain & stares up at the clouds, so when the storm starts again She knows she will dry, as she stands with no shame & cares not for the crowds, who ridicule her name She knows she will dry, so when the heavens open wide She knows it’s her time, she will know to be alive, And she said, “I’m… Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled, I am not on the map; yesterday is no tomorrow So I won’t look back, & I won’t let go when this ocean overflows… I’m searching for something worth seeking Instead of giving in to what’s given I regret it appears that I have lost my head The emerald rivers have swallowed my bed And now I… can’t lie… any more…” So when the truth comes out, When the whispers of the waves begin to shout, She said, “I know I’ll find my way” She said, “I know I’ll find my way, but I’m… Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled… I know I will dry, so when the heavens open wide I know it’s my time, I will know to be alive”

ROOTLESS We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy This rootless will be in the redstone nest No taint of his sorrow on the breeze. When the sun comes I will grow him, But now he must rest (but now he must rest) We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy This rootless will be in my leafen. He will be in my twigs and branch. His mossboll songs will wave in the wind; His breath hum in my blossomsongs (his breath hum in my blossomsongs) We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy When the sky opens wide, Oh, that’s when I come alive The rains come from no cloud, but straight from the snakemouth. Look at how my leafen dance, madness drowning in romance, Watching as I clap my hands, quench fever, So let my love fill your lungs, I long to listen to your songs, I’ll be swaying, simply singing rainjoy.

FABRIC She will carry you down quicksand like the earth is her hand She will contort the land like she fought all your plans She has pocketed your Paris in her rain-mac and She has promised you particles to breathe in but All she wants is your undivided attention, So pay attention ‘cause she’s insisting that Everything is so much more beautiful her way She will domino disasters just to practice her powers She will dominate decisions & make you see your powerlessness She manipulates your mindset with motions of magic and She monopolizes the fabric, She’s everything, she’s everywhere It’s always about her, But all she wants is your undivided attention So pay attention ‘cause she’s insisting that Everything is so much more beautiful her way She, she, she, All about she, she, she She be the beginning, she be the end If you listen, she is speaking, She is speaking, if you’re listening Now
