Track Name: Thoughts of Grass
Take a hazy image, tie it up with these warm thoughts of you
Take the truth in your story, shroud it in the glory of

In the fiery writ, my eyes have seen the sifting of the sands
In a pair of searching hands, looking for a hand like yours

Looking in the dim light, looking at way the light hits your hair
And leaves you standing there

Found a message in the cracking plaster, touched the ice in the Sweet Hereafter
The love letter did a paper dance in the hot coals let it lay to rest

Draw a map of your young life, draw the circles see how they wrap around you
And everything you do
Every goddamn thing you do

Digging on this deep depression
ride it out as a slow perfection that no one ever sees, but you and me

Found a message in the cracking plaster, touched the ice in the Sweet Hereafter
The love letter did a paper dance in the hot coals, let it lay to rest

Thoughts of grass always as I see them, shift directions in the changing wind
Met alone in a secret passage, learned to talk in an animal language
The sounds we threw out in the night
The sounds of youth always look so bright
The love letter did a paper dance in the hot coals let it lay to rest
