The silent sun climbs up the morning
It warms the air and primes the sea
Its light is life that even fuels by night
The auroras' fine fireworkery

The color still within the thin magnolia leaves
The flightless flies inside the golden amber beads

Make clear the crystalline endeavor
Through fleeting windows in the earth
To stitch and staple all the world together
And to launch the living matter from the dirt

The holy rollers flinch and fight with their own shadows
Those frozen lives residing somewhere after now
But out in the wider world of sediment and sparrow
The bleaching bones promote the flowering of doubt

The feral fears
That paralyze and faze
Orchid and amaranth
Still easily amaze

All those threads parallel
Twisting and splitting
The mighty minuscule hands
Ever ticking…ticking…ticking….

“The songwriting...is through the roof here both melodically and lyrically, bolstered by a band that nails the songs with pinpoint perfection.... The vocal delivery...is rock solid on what can only be deemed one of the most pleasantly surprising releases of the summer. This one rests near the very top of the ‘highly recommended’ list.”
—Bill Hurley, The Alternate Root
