Track Name: Skate
I saw the lights and they were shimmering
Just like they were when we were small
Before we knew that you were leaving
You stood there outside, you were so tall
You were a loner in the driveway
Riding away in an old U-Haul
You were our daddy, you were our hero
Our eyes were welling up like ponds
We could go skating straight across them
We could go skating to the great beyond
To the great beyond
A man's got a right to be protected
A woman's got a right to be protected
A girl's got a right to be protected
A boy's got a right to be protected
To be protected
Track Name: Crown
You wear it like a crown
Even when standing upside down
In an open field, on a forest floor
You don't need your head
Your head anymore

Rain is pounding, pounding down
Bouncing off your, off your crown
Quicksilver sound, deep in the ground
Quicksilver sound, deep in the ground

Your wound is your crown
Your wound is your crown
Track Name: Sycamore
I walk in the wintertime, I walk in the wintertime
Steadily remembering the way, steadily recollecting the way
I feel sorry for what happened
I feel sorry you lost face
Ah, let go that last possession
Ah, let go your place
Every day is a resurrection
The way a sycamore sheds its bark
Do you wanna savor the connection
Or do you wanna lie here in the dark, forever?
There you are recreating
The storms that blow sycamores down
Are you the wind, are you the weather
Are you a seizing in the ground, my brother?
Do you wanna walk in the wintertime
Do you wanna walk in the wintertime
Steadily remembering the way
Steadily recollecting the way
Track Name: Swan Dive
I saw you dive, I saw you dive
I saw you dive, I saw you dive
Swan dive

I saw you glide, I saw you glide
I saw you glide, I saw you glide
Swan glide

I watched you float against the sky
I saw you leave me, leave me behind
Swan fly
Track Name: Yellow Sands
Come unto these Yellow Sands
And then take hands
Curtsied when you have and kissed
The white waves' whist
Foot it featly here and there
And sweet sprites bear the burthen
Hark, Hark
The watchdogs bark.....
Track Name: Perseids
May the rhythms of change sustain you
And the mercy of the forces that be
May the sounds of the evening console you
And bind us always, you to me
As the summertime light is turning
Venus and Jupiter rise above
Let the autumn as it lays it leaves down
Sing of a perfect love

May the rhythms of change sustain you
And the mercy of the forces that be
May the moon and the tides together
Keep you forever connected to me
And whatever I said that sounded
Like I didn't really care
May the hard edges all be rounded
And I will be right there

May the rhythms of change sustain you
And the mercy of the forces that be
May the sounds of the evening console you
And bind us always, you to me
And you really won't have to wonder
When you walk beneath the stars above
I'll be whispering to you, remember
We have a perfect love
Track Name: As The Ship Goes Down
You won't stop to look around
You won't miss the feel of ground
Know your soul's pure as the sound
Of water all around
As the ship goes down

Never miss a breath of air
Won't have to deal with questions there
As the world bemoans our dying
You will shake your head and sighing
Watch the ship go down

The water calls, can't you feel it
When darkness falls, you can't conceal it
Share your pictures with the world
We'll die with every sail unfurled
As the ship goes down
