Track Name: Ribbons
Come with me
my imaginary
ghost in hiding
specter in the spring
You're the sky held aloft
by ribbons unseen
you're the harvest in the fall
and the sickle in the seed

Come with my
my imaginary
I've stoked all the fires while the dogs they did sing
you're the fires kept alight
by cinders unseen
you're the whispers and the prayers to all their gods in the trees
Track Name: True Love's Knot
Inside you're real/I just close my eyes and you reappear/Don't reply O Holy Ghost/In my sleep I see you the most

You undulate/And then escape with the ghosts of dawn/Lovers entwined for years so long/They believe in the pull of the True Love's Knot

Apparitions aside I think you're real/Though I banish you you reappear/You escape aloft in the timorous light/The man inside he ain't no friend of mine
