Track Name: hello darkness
I called your name into the silence
My words falling again
Eyes closed to your pain and my violence
I could not feel your face
(I could not feel… I could not…)

Hello darkness
Hello end
Hello hollow
Hello friend
Hello empty
Hello long
Hello goodbye
Hello gone
Track Name: spatter
these ivy lines entwine the daylight
no sun there shines
behind I hear something climb inside
smells like something died

these i.v. lines entwine the nightime
no moon here shines
tonight I hear things bump in the night
please turn out the light

following you into the living room
well i'm following you
following you into the laundry room
well i'm following you
following you into the family room
well i'm following you
following you into the back bedroom
well i'm following you
Track Name: remember christmas
Hear the bell the ringing bell
Calling you through the dark veil of dreams
Alarming you awakening
‘Tis time, ‘tis time
Another day of toil and schemes

The windshield scatters fallen leaves
Down the street another holiday appears
Plastic reindeer on the lawn
Behind the window
Pane the lonely faces peer
It’s the coldest time of year

Remember Christmastime from long ago
Sleigh bells ringing in the falling snow
Singing songs that everybody knows
Breaking bread with those in need
Hold the ones you love

What child is this?
All alone in the glow
Of images designed to steal
While in the other room his mother wraps another
Toy designed to make him feel
Good (do you feel good?)
But in the child’s heart there lies a place that’s far away from all the pain and fear
A place that’s ringed with trees and there a fire burns warming those who venture near
With tidings of good cheer
