Track Name: What Welcoming
What welcoming was in me then?
What calming wind?
When my heart had opened up
accepting some wisdom

Homes full of holes
honey dripped in a
blue afternoon

What is comfort?
I am interested!
I am interested
I'm interested

I don't remember getting home
Tried to stop thinking

I am fine
but not amused
but not excused
From feeling that weight

What is the loss that you've welcomed?
Who is the "you" in all your songs?
Go wear new clothes
my hair grows long

Do you know what the dream means now?
I was lost but it's okay how
I won't remember anything
Sing songs to the ground
About the way the language changed
No great unveiling
Track Name: Hand Comes Down
On the way home
wind is whipping
in my hair

Night clear in the cold
never rested

So destructive

Fall fell again
It felt like dying

early nights

Cat on my chest
your hands in my hair
feel alright
I feel alright

Another droning
Same as last year

World's getting warmer
I'll move north

Forgot how it felt to be good
Forgot how it felt to be good

a hand comes down

A hand comes down
