lyrics

There's a house along the way
with bread crumbs in the driveway [1]
where restless poets go to stay
and burn up in the fire of the furnace

The mighty River's[2] vengeance sways
the rocks and sticks and little flames
breathing in the rushing waves,
I've never felt so lively in my bones

Chopping wood to build an ark, [3]
Stepping stones[4] into your heart
I hope that road don't go too far
Stepping stones into your heart

Match our hearts and cigarettes
and hold it deep down in your chest
drop it lit into the nest
to make the taste familiar to my tongue

In fevered dreams, I'd pull the thread
unwind the blanket in your head
and camp down in the riverbed [5]
to make the air familiar to my lungs

Chopping wood to build an ark,
Stepping stones into your heart
I hope that road don't go too far
Stepping stones into your heart
The devil's on your flagpole,
Stepping stones into your soul!
And I hope the road don't get too cold,
Stepping stones into your soul!

1- Hansel and Gretel; the bread crumb trail they left to find their way back home was eaten by birds
2- God
3- Genesis 9:1-3
4- each song on this album
5- God
