lyrics

Angel wings enfold the sight of all men whose wandering minds enflame their bleeding hearts with the sky’s red tongue. And the wingless long for wings. And the winged long for winds. and the winds, they long for words. Clouds sing praise unto the trees who sacrifice their praying leaves and reach into the breeze, so sleeping minds can see. And the wingless turn in flight. And the winged bless this sight. And the winds chant through the night. With wounded hearts alight, the moon a halo burning bright, mortals drift while angels dream upon the sky’s red tongue. And the wingless rise like birds. The winged cross themselves in turn. And the wind becomes the word. Trace the paths of falling stars. Note the trails of falling leaves. Blossoms drop where you can see upon the grass so green. Upon the sky all blazing hearts rain down like little sparks. While thunder howls within the clouds, lightning always comes to ground. Angels fell so long ago, cast from sky to here below. The moon a weeping eye to see. the sun an angry eye to flee. But lo' the blossoms rise to the sky. I think they were butterflies. Springtime flowers burst again beneath the sky's red tongue. And the flames enfold all sight. And they free the wondering mind. And they free the bleeding hearts beneath the sky's red tongue. And the wingless sprout fine wings. And the winged call strong winds. And the winds have found their voice.

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.
