Track Name: Corn Blue Night
Corn Blue Night

When I die I'm gonna rise like the mist in the valley
and sink like a river stone
The pale moon shines, it streams through the pines
a beacon for this lonesome road

I pause next to a charred oak tree
by a stream that’s pure and cold
I quench my thirst and glimpse my face
under the stars of Van Gogh

Sweet Georgia rose I breathe you
deep in the corn blue night
I've got a ways to go to see you darling
and look into your pilgrim eyes

The sun's gonna rise and still I'll be travelin'
headin' through old Cherokee lands
I can smell their fires, hear the ghosts of the women
Shedding tears in the sand

They cry out about all I've done wrong
and I feel my old fears rise
But then I catch the strains of a country song
Like a prayer in the gathering light

Sweet Georgia rose I breathe you
deep in the corn blue night
I've got a ways to go to see you darling
and look into your pilgrim eyes

The sun’s gonna rise and still I’ll be traveling
Toward your pilgrim eyes like two lakes in the distance
Your pilgrim eyes like two lakes in the distance
Your pilgrim eyes like two lakes

Track Name: Wild Fruit
I came across a road to lead me from the wilderness
I’ve been wandering the hills and the valleys of darkness
I’ve been running with the wolves through the maze of temptation
I’ve been hanging with the lost ones and chasing the wrong women

Give me wild fruit
one more bite
Give me wild fruit
As sweet as the blush of night
I’m hanging on tight Ayoreo
You can’t drag me to the light

You can slash and burn these woods until this land is clear
Until the creek beds are dry and the birds have disappeared
You can smoke me from the hills but you can’t bribe me to leave
But you'll never tame the lost ones and you'll never take their spirit from me

Give me wild fruit
one more bite
Give me wild fruit
As sweet as the blush of night
I’m hanging on tight, Ayoreo
You can’t drag me to the light

Ayoreo, you can’t tame me
Ayoreo, you can’t tame me
Ayoreo, you can’t drag me from the wild

Track Name: Lost Again
Lost Again

I can feel your body still burn
and drop me like a torch to the earth
to light up my hallways and
turn turn turn
to the end of every nerve
I hope my courage is still here
cus I ain’t felt that type of light in years
I fell asleep to the sound of birds
Now it’s silent when the evening’s near

And I’m lost again
and I spin spin spin
and I”m lost again
and you haunt me like a phantom limb

Losing sleep but I’ve lost it before
Kill the lights and pace the empty floors
When it first stung we were so damn young
And it was hard to know what we had done
You and I at the altar of the sun
It was you and I and the world that we spun
But what we had was a Pagan love
Starcrossed and moonbroken

And I’m lost again
and I spin spin spin
And I’m lost again
And you haunt me like a phantom limb

The last few years
Were tourniquet years
The last few years
Were tourniquet years
