Track Name: All Named Mary
I sat down to write a letter
to a friend who'd long been dead
from the ground up came an answer
chain your mouth and free your head

then my brother caught the devil
skipping stones into the sea
and old ladies all named Mary
bow down and kiss his feet

golden fire tempt my lover
honey bee kiss my cheek
i want to fly said son to father
we're as high he said as the oceans' deep

same son said to his mother
i want to go where spirits meet
he cried himself off to sleep
must be done if you want to dream

silver candle blow me empty
guide my eyes over land and sea
a sand made mountain's on my shoulder's
i know the world but i'm losing me
