lyrics

Every word I sing tonight
Is fished from the mouth of a corpse.

Every note my fingers my sound
Is pulled from the spine of the passed.

Every sight beneath the stars
Is peeled from the eyes of the dead.

And these like trees, with roots so deep
And me just a seed on the wind.

Their lips were wet with berries picked
And dried by the sun and the wind.
Their tongues did sing to harp and drum
And told long tales under the moon.

They looked upon the ancient hills
And wrote in long forgotten scripts.
Seeing long with hunter’s eyes
And wetting graves with potent tears.
Ears that heard the secret charms
And the songs of missing birds.
To memory put the ballads long
And wisdom now lost to time.

Their eyes to see the wrath of gods.
Their ears to hear the angels’ song.
Their moths to sing the praise of all.
Now dark.
Now silent.
Now unspoken.

about

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.
