about

Recorded in the winter of 2009 in Seattle during the "Noruz" recording sessions

lyrics

so unreal late sky
all the places you'll never find
purple orchids fill your eye
subtle traces of former lives

copper hills and steel pines
stand and wait for the butterfly
dappled horses running wild
sail away for the mothervine
sail away for the mothervine

maple jewel you keep me waiting like a fool
I love you the most
I'll give you all the mountains gold
just to be your ghost

so unreal late sky
subtle traces of former lives
purple horses running wild
sail away for the mother vine
stand and wait for the butterfly
all the places you'll never find
