Track Name: Pollen Path
Black moon above
Stars overhead
Don't you dare guide me
Back to my bed
The river is frozen
The pollen path's bare
Don't wait for me darling
There's thorns in my hair

(Mm, mm)

Falconry's cross
Many moons dead
Don't you dare silence
This song in my head
The flowers are broken
The pollen path's bare
Don't speak to me darling
Till blood blades his hair

How long, how long
How long was the earth there?
How long can we say we belong here?
You say, you say
How long, how long can we stay together?

(Mm, mm)

Pardon the sky
Pardon the earth
When will we stop
This weight of his words
The stars are all woken
The pollen path's there
So sing with me darling
Let down your long hair

'Cause how long, how long
How long was the earth there?
How long can we say we belong here?
You say, you say
How long, how long can we stay together?
Track Name: Landays
Landays and low lace moon up above
Teach me to tell you when I'm in love
My heart's twined in ivy arms covered in gold
Teach me to hold you when your body's not cold

(Mm, mm)

Willow and white birch stretched up to the sky
Show me the secret to not asking why
My heart's in the branches arms papered with bark
Carve your foreign initials into my dark

This is the key and this is the lock
If you turn it like this we'll turn back the clock
I'm not long for this green new world
But I'll show you the truth and let's watch it unfurl

Bright water rush through my low riverbed
Teach me to help you to lay down your head
My heart's by the castle you sit on the throne
I promise no other may draw steel from my stone
Track Name: Bloom
(Bloom, bloom)

When you say we should read more Rumi
That means so much to me
But how can you say such normal things
When I know what's on the table

It looked so normal on the table
Unassuming flower
But in the bedroom it bloomed
A deep, deep red

It unfurled like a mandala
It unfurled like a mandala
It unfurled like a mandala
A red mandala

(Bloom, bloom)

When you say we should read more Rumi
That means so much to me
