Track Name: Yellow River
The waiters got angry for reasons
Best known to themselves and their god
So we bid adieu with the bill still due
While they twisted the language of love

Down to the old yellow river
We go with our bottomless jug
I drink to you and we listen
To the cellar door slamming above

And we know we are standing in the loop of a dream
And we know the scars won't mean anything
They don't mean anything

I never wanted a mission
Time and luck will run out on their own
I get through and so will you
We'll never pay back a penny we loan
Track Name: Avalanche
It's in my head
It's in the heart of my thoughts
Sidelining all the things I ought to mind
I don't care
I don't care if it's wrong
I'll just go pour it in a song to add

To the avalanche
Take all those years you don't need back
Down to the avalanche
Go fill your heart until it cracks

I have seen
I have seen what I am
I only stand for what I can with ease
And I am used, I am used by my words
Freedom is all I haven't learned about
From the avalanche
Track Name: Stand at the Tree
Stand at the tree
Bare to the knee
& all aware
Satellite eye, flickering line, solid air
I know just how the seed feels after the ground is drowned

Binded by weed the light can't satisfy me now
I've been afraid but know it's over
Let all the leaves fall soft and sweet upon the ground
Let all the roots feast on us

Stand at the tree
Knuckles and grease in your hair
Withered inside
A shadow in time, is ever there
I know just how the seed feels after the ground is drowned

Binded by weed the light can't satisfy me now
I've been afraid but know it's over
Let all the leaves fall soft and sweet upon the ground
Let all the roots feast on us
Track Name: Long Way Round
If I make light of the things I love
It's just fear of loss to abate
All I need is the sky above
And my loneliness is allayed

I always take the long way round
As happy in fields as cities or towns
When I lose my way
It's just a new way I've found

So come with me and we'll put to sea
There's a land out there to be built
I'm not sure what life has in store
But I promise now that we will

Always take the long way round
Be as happy in fields as cities or towns
When we lose our way
It's just a new way we've found

So always take the long way round
Be as happy in fields as cities or towns
When you lose your way
It's just a new way you've found
