about

A "soft and soothing hug of warm folk" (Atwood Magazine) from us to you, we hope "Dust to Dust" provides a little solace during this very challenging time.

lyrics

hearing by the noise
singing by the voice
seeing by the sight
lightness by the light
righteousness by right
power by control
will by young and old

power in the tone
marrow from the bone
young by being old
this is what we’re told
and this is how we know
and this is what I think
a player and a string

if only I had a diamond ring of my own
I’d take it to market and I’d fly back home
blow the old house down, build anew in town
fill a ring shaped hole

ruby in the sun
planet on the run
pocket full of ash
ripping off the mask
sky that tears in half
earth that we exhume
change is coming soon

you howl from your lonely mountain at night
still penning the secrets I know you’d like
to let go the most, give up your ghost
for a brand new life

hearing by the noise
singing by the voice
seeing by the sight
lightness by the light
darkness by the night
calm before the storm
die ‘fore being born

power in the tone
marrow from the bone
young by being old
this is what we’re told
and this is how we know
and this is what I think
