lyrics

fall asleep
in the morning
listen for the north wind,
listen for the trees

calling thee,
teeth forlorning,
something altar-scorning
buried neath the weeds


ash and aster
round thee scattered,
rabbits rapture,
trappers tattered
alabaster
Halifaxer
running faster
grasping from the gloom

still they'll never know you
still they'll never know you

wash your feet
in the creekbed
dowerless and heathen
but daughter ye are free

in the stream
words unreelin'
maps of other seasons
older than the sea

ash and aster
round thee scattered,
rabbits rapture,
trappers tattered
alabaster
Halifaxer
running faster
running faster

ash and aster
stags that canter,
'pon their antlers
lanterns gathered
alabaster
Halifaxer
running after your
tomb

still they'll never know you
still they'll never know you
