lyrics

Moonlight it is grace, to fall upon my face - and how many hours 'til the spider's work is done? Here I lie alone again. Neither there nor home again. And it seems a long, long time since I have seen the sun. O, I've lost my name to wind. To black soil's gone my mind, turning like a mirror to the sky above. The stars, I pray, will shine on me. Their light is hope if you can see. And bless these darkened nights, remembered by no one. Passing moths and twisting clouds. Silken threads wind into shrouds. And the sleepless stillness fills my cold dark mind. O, the joy of loneliness. O the pain of lonesomeness. And it seems a long, long time since I have seen the sun. Above, a leaf turns in the breeze; a holy relic no one sees; now dancing as it summons up the howling storm. The thunder rages in the sky. The rain, it pools within my eyes and flows in wet formations that to the river run. Neither can I sleep nor wake, but still I lie and still I wait. And how many hours 'til the spider's work is done?

Stone Breath Red Lion, Pennsylvania

Stone Breath is not new. It is cracked. Broken. Imperfect. Hidden. Weathered by the seasons.

We sing of ghosts and of forgotten paths through forest and fallow field.
