about

I've sailed here on a boat of broken boards, bourne aloft and made scabrous in the briny surf. I am this island, craven and lone and withered across the breadth of my borders, moldering at the creases where my sands meet the sea.

Track Name: Bugbear
mama
i'm a fool for all ive done
left her body
at the dawning
of the cairn and carried on

and papa
know that we can't tarry long
show no folly
in the stalling
of the ferryman, charon

and oh--

I know not what I'm for
but my face by the fireside warms
alone in what I've known
but my faith in the firelight grows
and a face by the fireside shows


mama
ill find my arbiter alone
in waters seething,
timber teeming,
not the leaves of ancient tomes


and papa
ill write my likeness in the stones
but never cheating
something fleeting
as every one of them erodes

and oh--

I know not what I'm for
but my face by the fireside warms
alone in what I've known
but my faith in the firelight grows
as i gaze on the mother of crows
