Audio from a live performance in Oakland, CA on September 17, 2005.


Chopped is the tree that has fallen
I'm leaving
I'm leaving it there
Sure as fire's cozy and warm
I'm leaving
I'm leaving it there
Don't want to burn
I can't take the heat

Bust that trunk open
You don't know what you'll find in here
Truth isn't spoken
It doesn't appear

Lost is the leaf that has fallen
I'm grieving
I'm grieving, aware
Forming a pattern of chaos
The leaves have bereavement to spare
Give me a turn
I want to see

Loss amid plenty
Birth in the mouth of change
Do not remove, just rearrange

Lying in the back of a station wagon
Falling asleep
Watching the street lights go by
Why don't you swing me out?

Oranges are calling
Pulling into a motel
Halfway to Miami
Why don't you swing me out?

Time to be waking
Sunshine is breaking
Palm trees are swaying
With a head full of Florida
