Track Name: Dust [single version]
DUST

This time he comes, this man he comes
This time he comes to you and I
This time he comes oh hey yo hi
So many man-laid ways
So many rough and stony trails
A wisdom one on rusted nails
Would walk and still he’ll come to stay
This one with skin ablaze

He follows this way that way
Whichaway the crow flies free
Welcome children welcome
Welcome now the crow flies free

Back to you he comes and on
And on and on and on to me
The raven ‘self is hoarse that croaks
This wisdom let it be
We gently stroke our troubled head
Thank comfort for a swaddling bed
Let hell dissolve to myths of old
While love we truly tell

Breathe now yet we don’t breathe
Wisdom comes as the crow flies free
Welcome children welcome
Welcome as the crow flies free

He sits between the humble frogs
A-joking at their demigods
The pulses of his history
Between the fallen trees

The creak between upstanding and
Mulcher-fodder of our land
He stands and speaks the truth to you
Like a woman, a wisdom man

Welcome children welcome
Welcome as the crow flies free
Welcome children welcome
Welcome now the crow flies free

Argue all you like you little
Puzzled children all in fright
He’ll laugh and hold you loose and nice
Throughout your shiver night

Or if the Time is right he might
He must hold tight and tight and tight
Your throat this wisdom man
And gently kiss you back to dust.

Welcome children welcome
Welcome now the crow flies free
Welcome children welcome
Welcome now the crow flies free
Track Name: The Dam At Otter Creek
THE DAM AT OTTER CREEK

When all that's left to do is
Reflect on what's been done
This is where sadness breaths
The sadness of everyone

Just like when the guys
Built the dam at otter creek
And all the water backed up
Deep enough to dive

We took the dead man in sheets to the river
Flanked by love
Deep enough to dive
Deep enough to dive
Be here now

We took him there and three
In a stretcher made from trees
That had passed in the storm
Leave the hearse behind
To leave the curse
Be here now
