Track Name: Call From The Hill
Hush

Don’t speak

Your accent’s hypnotizing me

And in the morning

On bombed out streets

The call from the hill will find me

Yes the call from the hill will find me

Find me


Time wasted

Searching for that nectar we tasted

Hurry hurry

It runs deep

It ripples through my nipples and creeks

Chasing fast

A fading scene

The call from the hill haunts me

Yes the call from the hill haunts me

It haunts me


Come home

Come home

I’ll build you a house of colored stone

Weathered and strong we’ll fight out demons

You’re not alone

So come home
Track Name: Arms & Arms
ARMS&ARMS

When it rains it pours and all
We could say before the storm
Was to welcome you this city’s home
Although when it rains it pours

Walking on water that night
A sight to behold we believed
We would lose you to the scenery
You would leave us behind at sea

This is the home where stars are made
It’s the home where gods are born
There was this poem on a wall outside
It oddly drove you beside yourself

Come wake us up in the night
Crash your car and pick a fight
We will welcome you with open arms and arms and arms

///

We were yesterday’s future greats
We’ll be tomorrow’s future alrights
Solutions arise from the longest of nights
We’ll be tomorrow’s future alrights

The smell of freshly cut grass
Brings us back to Maryland
Our parents outside held the world in their arms and arms and arms

And I’m sorry I cut you off
When you were coming up with a plan

A plan for a glorious escape
Drive through my heart your spade

And I’m sorry my voice broke off
When I was guiding you out of here

Lost was our glorious escape
Drive through your heart my spade



Had my hand on the door
Heard a crack on the floor
Should’ve opened the door I know I know

Placed your hands on my eyes
Like you were covering lies
Dreams never die I heard I heard

Turn the night into day
You I sought while you swayed
Shadows will fade away you say you say

Had my hand on the door
Saw your head on the floor
Should’ve opened the door I know I know
Track Name: Mourning Song
She wants a song from you / She wants it in the morning

They’re reading psalms for us / The country is in mourning

In many years from now / The echo of this omen

Her mountain eyes are clear / She guides you to the open

The wild hour has come / I’ll leave you in the morning

Kingdoms came crashing down / We had ignored the warning

Ten years won’t take them back / A lion become a woman

Her laughing eyes are clear / You dive into the moment

Everything’s real / Don’t get tired

Fall through your fear / Don’t get tired

Conservative tears / Don’t get tired

Cause everything’s real / Don’t get tired

Her wild eyes are clear / You fall in without warning

She wants a song from you / She wants it in the morning
Track Name: City Of Our Dreams
As you dug into the earth
Your hands were weapons cutting glass
Your voice ringing through the ash
Tomorrow’s promise what a promise

Turn the land into a storm
The soil into shards of glass
Your words soothing
It will get better

Pushing onwards pushing upwards
Building houses made of glass
Feeling our way around corners
How did we ever? Did we ever?

Take the keys man we will follow
Blind to signals deaf to cries
If you just tell us
It will get better

///

You were building something stronger
We’d call home and our shield
We’d call love we’d call freedom
Our escape was within reach

Yeah you tried we should’ve listened
Drove your car into the ocean
What a show what a parade
Could it get any better?

But we failed where it mattered
Look away we’re getting battered
Hanging backstage getting hammered
Could it go any further?

But the cities of our dreams
They are never what it seems
Will it ever get any easier?


PAST BELIEFS
HAUNT ME

CUP YOUR HANDS
HISTORIES HISTORIES GLOW

BUILD UPON
THIS EARTH

NEW WALLS WHERE
FAMILIES FAMILIES GROW

NEW WALLS WHERE
FAMILIES FAMILIES GROW
