amended lyrics – man-eating tree

will work and try
to heal myself
will repair and weld
together the pieces
will quench and drown
and fires i have lit
will free the birds
i have caged in

will travel in the cold
to find a house of light
will call for the night
to have it’s ghost stand down
will breath life into
the promise i have broken
will walk days in the sun
to arrive where i can say:

i am here, at the house of light, come see me
the night and i, in a parley now, believe me
and all my words have weight again, hear me
and all our wounds have healed me
