Track Name: summer
summer is a comin in
with buzzin bee
and swollen creek
summer is a comin in
with hummin air in bedsprings

when thunder rings ooo
when rain sings ooo

when gold smiles from honeycomb
and wasps make their paper loom
when you’re on your way back home
I'll know

summer is a comin in
with tall grass
and meadow hiss
summer is a comin in
with bottle-glass ocean kiss

when thunder rings
when rain sings

when jade spills from mountain stone
and heat lightning bruise the moon
when you’re on your way back home
i'll know

summer is a comin in
summer is a comin in
summer is a comin in
summer is a comin in
Track Name: carousel
thumb back through the celluloid
past kodak and polaroid
o there o there
you’ll find
my flesh and blood
and who
they buried under my tongue
and who
they buried under horizons

can we really call this home
hauntings all we know
ghosts fall through the floor
and i can’t see them anymore

till the house I was born in burns
i’ve not got what Ive earned
till the house I was born in burns
i’ve not got what Ive earned


heirloom gowns and wedding rings
silver spoon fed purity
o this o this
our home
built from matches
and whose
ghost I wear on my face
and who
they wish I’d forget


can we really call this home
hauntings all we know
ghosts fall through the floor
and i can’t see them anymore


till the house I was born in burns
i’ve not got what Ive earned
till the house I was born in burns
i’ve not got what Ive earned







Till the house I was born in burns
I’ve not got what Ive earned
Track Name: poplar
pootootweet
Track Name: hides
something hides in me
calls to kill and feast
something hides in me
can't you see it breathe

my good intention bleet
like wolf blood into fleece
queen to bishop 3
it’s been botherin’ me

something hides in me
calls to kill and feast
something hides in me
can't you see it breathe

shine a light behind me
what do you hope to see
(in the) space between the keys
what’s that mean for me?
Track Name: cicada
i hear ringin in my ear
belltowers toll when you’re near
you collect your whole life
in the little pieces from all the years

you forget where you’ve been
and hide all your feelings in your gifts
but call out of the blue
just to show how far we’ve shifted

before you die
tell me all your lies

cicada

back when I had just turned 5
i felt your heart beatin clear
but now we’re far from '99
ann I wonder if you were ever really here

when you finally die
I’m scared I’ll feel fine

cicada
