Track Name: First Morning
This first morning,
the sun is a ripe and dizzy fruit;
the worlds of my feet,
my brest, who can explain them?
We prick, we plot, we piece this earth
Father, we piece this earth to thee.
Track Name: Unit Message
stand up
don't wither now
you're blossoming
unit message

flying
floating
rapturous committee

stay there till I get there
I'll wear orange sweater
I long to see you again

city under the
clouds fires
air wind
winding
unit message

stand up
don't wither now
you're blossoming
unit message
Track Name: When You Took Me In Your Arms
When you took me in your arms
I trembled
Like an injured bird

You healed me
With your soothing word

Now why are you so far, so far
Why do you turn me away, away
Track Name: A Comforter
Still you come to me in the night
Walking with bare feet whispering
And still you force me to come round corners that could wait,
To face a minor premise I am avoiding.

Still you draw me from the logic of time,
Reasoning with knots and pieces
Now that I have turned round corners that should wait,
To leave a minor premise I am enjoying.

Still you push me down a busy street,
Whispering of dead men talking,
Until we come to corners that should meet
Upon a minor premise I am trusting.

Still I come to you in the night
Wakened to a silken apron's rustling,
And still I end in corners that must wait
To trap a minor premise I am hiding.
Track Name: Moments
on leaving
she drops her glove
does not bend to retrieve
does not stop
but has long since
turned for
home
Track Name: Only Speak
speak only speak
give me a word
oh, signify

where is your voice
what is your word
i am waiting here

Zion floating in the clouds
chariot of Elijah
horse of fire

I hear heaven descending down
light of dar replendent flaming
rising soul

ear
eye

Track Name: Universe
You are worth all the time
I'm here
Place
In
All the time
With you to get all the time
Moment
State of mind
It is the universe
