lyrics

Evergreen Wolf

If you can feel my beat
rock your ribs, my tongue and teeth
comb your winter coat
then hold your head beneath
and whisper with the earth stuck in your throat

into my withered ear
the sound of your howlin' tears
singing softly
and I will call the moon to
tug your tide and make you high when you think of me

I'm gone but you've still got me
as long as you think of me as home

Out on the outskirts
while I feigned to follow father's verse
you waited for me
and now I wait for you
up above in the seed at the edge of the limb of the evergreen.

And when the forest burns
the flames will cast a killing curse
and we will finally fall
into the ash and dust
'til the spring reigns over us and we can let our roots crawl.

I'm gone but you've still got me
as long as you think of me as home

and even though I'm feelin' the ache of change
I know that without it things would stay the same.
Even though I'm feelin' the ache of change
I know that without it things would stay the same.

And now I wait for you
up above in the seed at the edge of the limb of the evergreen.

So, Marcus stole threads of Folk, Country, Blues, and Rock, spun a sleeping bag, and skipped town. Please contact local authorities if you've seen him. ... more
