too many words
too little soul
chewing the bread
lighting the coal
nothing from something
i need release

walk in the graveyard
knowing the past
picking out plots
moving too fast
might as well give in
i need release

clanging of bells
ringing the new
pastures of silence
grazing for food
something to feed on
i need release

we'll all be all right
when the wind dies
when the soldier flies
and the rain comes
washing us into
a cool release


from various, released May 9, 2011
