Track Name: Lay Me Down
Lay me down
I'll decay into a pile of bones inside my Sunday clothes.
Lay me down
Plant the flowers all around
they'll grow beneath this fertile soil

My head beneath a stone.
My garden is overgrown with weeds.


Light a candle in the night for your husband and your child
and drink a toast to your life.
Take your vow
cause soon they'll lay you down
away from me on the hill


My head beneath a stone.
My garden is overgrown with weeds.
Track Name: Crooked House
I bought a crooked house
spent my money trying to straighten it out

all the time I can't reconcile
In my dreams I can't stop running out.

I bought a crooked house
spent my money trying to straighten it out.

all the time worked my fingers to the bone.
all the while our house became a crooked home.
Track Name: Orchard
Planted all my seeds
tilled them into hills and rows
tiny drops of rain
fall until the ground is soaked.

Father had a garden many years ago
now it's all a desert and the sand goes on for miles.

Gather all your grain
soon to grind it into bread
honey from the bees
is worth all these stings I have.

Father had an orchard and the trees were tall
the peaches were too bitter and the apples fell apart.
