"Ancient Forest reminds me of the Tolkien-obsessed eco-folk of Tyrannosaurus deconstructed to their constituent parts, referencing trees, referencing Tolkien, and warped along some magic line unknowable to the uninitiated." -Weird Missoula

Track Name: Sealand
Are you ready? Are you ready?
For the Window, to come along?
You know better, Still you're like, "La."
Sealand, you're wonderful.
Still winter comes across like a cup,
undoes your Iceman again.
What's the weather?
Tying knots around my feet.
Laced my shoes up, led my head.
I don't know why I wonder what you said.
Sealand, you're wonderful, but
winter comes across like a cup,
and it undoes your Iceman again.
Track Name: Purple
Home, sometimes I think it's just a feeling,
that I get when I'm living on my own.
I've got to get my cells together.
There's pebbles in the foam.
tóg bog é, take it easy.
Like the water in the snow
that used to live inside a woolcloud.

Slow, November ducks on the glassy water.
There's a hole around the corner
where tomorrows stack together.
There's a window near the yard
where the trees are half their leaves
Like bright shadows until the wind blows
Watercolors streaming down the river.
Track Name: Friends
When you were born, you were on your first day,
but when it comes around again isn't it called your first day?
Wonder where the dogs go.
Got my arms around the cedar.
Wonder if the fuzz comes from dogs, oh no.
Touch my fingers on your old growth.
You don't have to worry.
I've got time, I've got mind--but I wonder where the papers go,
They're all wrapped up underneath your arm like got no reason to dry.
Try and pick a reason for the sky, oh no, "it's" again.
Track Name: Inis Mór
Wonder if you ever know, ever see.
Ever paint the evening lavender,
like you showed the quay to me.
But I can see for miles, Inis free,
Inis Mór before An Daingen
Tried to light the night on me.

Wearing my foggy hat--
Do you like our breeze,
underneath the leaves?

Wand there if you ever go, ever been.
Ever paint the evening daffodil,
like a vulture in the breeze.
But I can see your "I don't knows,
I can't be."
Nickle Wildflower I saw you.
Nickle Flower you saw me

Wearing my foggy hat.
Do you like our breeze,
underneath your knees?
