1. The Beautiful Axe


The night holds
Holds a candle to you
I see you are a hummingbird
Living in the shadows of law
Cleave her to vivid dreams
Picture before you
The living word
He did ascend away
To prepare a place
Let the sound together hold you
To the humble he has given grace
From the proud he hides his face
From the proud he hide his face
Joy has come
It rises with the son
He the highest on the horizon
Joy has come
In the mind that I see
Beautiful the axe that flies at me
In the yard
More than fourty birds
For to write upon my mind
We fall out into the street
As the last one flies
The last one in kind
On the morning of this second day
An old skin vision of my hope and stay
A flaw in the man whichever way
Thinking of his color

2. Horsetail

He come up and
throw himself down
he finds no strength to get off this ground
by the wave of the horsetail
by the wave of the horsetail
he wishes no height
no height in your mind
to climb the steep hill none he can find
if you think you can see it in your hand
then you are blind
for unless he draw them
they will not come
for no man seeks him
no not one
there is number to your hours
there is number to your hours
you I don’t know
from a stone’s throw
if you think you can see it in your hand
then you are blind
he bring the whirlwind
to scatter your fire
you cannot reach him
no not from your
tallest spire

3. Not One Stone

And in so
They took on
As far as one can go
To crack the smile
And the old backbone
You offer up not your reason alone
Deep asleep as wolves
Who rise to worship their dreams
Under the mountain
Thin as thieves
Armed to the teeth
We have the same hands
Behold the lamb
Behold the lamb
Given for us
Made curse for us
Behold the lamb
Not one stone
Atop another will stand
As one of them
I always am
On my way down
This weary melody ends
The host of heaven descends
Down beneath this bleeding ground
Behold the lamb
Behold the lamb
Given for us
Made curse for us
Behold the lamb
Behold the lamb
Not one stone
Atop another will stand

4. Cohawkin Road

Hidden inside him
Music in the dark
This conquering kindness
To all in his quiver
Burdened hard
On the road
By law all are wounded
That you may know
You may know one another
She looks for me in picture
Oh my brother’s keeper
In picture worn smooth
From hand to hand
A quiet unlearning oh I had forgotten
To control the tongue
I do now remember
Do not all step to the end of dreams
Down piano wire
They will leave the lips
Of everyone's desire
In the cold cold comfort
Of winter on winter
Swinging mood
Swinging mood
Quick round every turn
Within your frame
My sister
They are endless three
Yet in the mirror of the knife
I see only me
Do not all step to the end of dreams
Down piano wire
They will leave the lips
Of everyone's desire

5. Iron Feather

I must miss you
Under the ashen sky
And out from among them
You and you
Those who spin as glass
On this iron ship
Into their own hands cast
Oh it is this sad news
That has traveled so fast
All these tears
Gather together
Down your cheek
Your neck and feathers
All these tears
Letter by letter
They must be found
While still day
As dead men do
Do not find their way
Beneath the cedars
The cedars of Lebanon they
All these tears
Gather together
Down your cheek
Your neck and feathers
All these tears
Feather fell a voice
A calling answer there
To the hearing soul
The soul in the hollow square

6. White Knuckle Grip

Written down on burning paper
Some words just do not rhyme
We’re dealing with fire either way
Driving these streets in squandered time
Angel protect the vision
Picture show to slow it down
I am ill from too much honey
As the bees they buzz around
It might have been a Cadillac
Yeah maybe a Lincoln
I seen it from the rear view
I just couldn’t get a clear view
I got a white knuckle grip on my
white knuckle grip on my
white knuckle grip on my
Saturday night
I'm gonna dance this town to ruins
Stood close hell fire barbed wire
Come on boy
Come up with somethin'
Or go home go home with nothin'
Worse for the wear
Out here in the fray
I'm takin’ the heavy way
I'm takin’ the heavy way
The landscape of Saturday night
Get a grip and make it tight
Father guide me with your eye
It might have been a Cadillac
Or maybe a Lincoln
Seen through the rear view
Could not get a clear view
Got a white knuckle grip on your
Saturday night

7. Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars


Quiet nights of quiet stars
quiet chords from my guitar
floating on the silence
that surrounds us.
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams
quiet walks by quiet streams
and a window that looks out
on the mountains and the sea,
oh how lovely
This is where I want to be
here with you so close to me
until the final flicker of life's ember.
I who was lost and lonely
believing life was only
a bitter tragic joke,
have found with you,
the meaning of existence,
oh my love

8. Kicking Bird

The songs begin at nightfall
The wind blows to the north
The wind is blowing stronger
It blows my tail to the north
See the small dogs come running
See the poor dogs come running
See the horsemen come after
See the horsemen come laughing
The songs begin at nightfall
The wind blows to the north
The wind is blowing stronger
It blows my tail to the north

9. Kingdom Of Ice

Did you o man
Give horse his might
Did you o man
clothe his neck with mane
he rushes out
to meet the sword
he laughs at fear
and is not dismayed
lay hand to mouth
spoken once
I have no answer
lay hand to mouth
spoken twice
I will say no more
In fierceness and rage
He paws at the ground
He smells the battle from afar
He turns not back
From its thunderous sound
Lay hand to mouth
Spoken once
You have no answer
Lay hand to mouth
Spoken twice
And say no more
He stands alight
The flames of a clear eye
We ride from here on
To his kingdom of ice
He stands alight
He stands alight

10. His Loyal Love

She into me
See into me
Soaring over my heart
She for the keeping
Of each passing day
I pray
Of each passing day
I pray
She among the precious ones
Far enough and distance between
My eyes no longer young
I see no star
I see no star
Brighter than the sun
Bride and spirit say come
Bride and spirit say come
