lyrics

Mary nail the beds down
The children floating off again
Over trees and floodplains
In the air and dreaming

To the moonlight yawning
Passing over miles of sand
If we let them float all night
They'll be gone by morning

Henry grab the earrings
We'll need them to erase the debt
Let them drop to soldiers
In exchange for bayonets

Harriet come closer
Don't let them see your silhouette
We're just black balloons now
Backing up a loaded gun

Skinny legs skywalking
Family trees time warping

about

porches Portland, Oregon

Trained in the ways of the gun and the axe, in wrangling tornadoes and dancing in the face of danger, in drinking without a straw and punching without a fist.
