Track Name: Let There Be Dark
It's a silly, fine, little line we walk
when my strumming hands get tired and my voice is shot
we've been waiting for the line to cross
over to the dark
do you want it to or not

well its a fickle, senseless rhetoric we talk
and my whiskey breath is warm but the mic is hot
we've been waiting for the heat to drop
and sink into the fog
do you want it to or not

Wait, don't go so far
I wanna catch up to where you are
Let there be dark
Let the sunrise fall

It's a tricky tipsy delicate dance we trot
and my weary feet are following like a fox
we've been waiting for the light to wash
over all we've lost
do you want it to or not

Wait don't go so far
I wanna catch up to where you are
Let there be dark
Let the sunrise stop
Still the waves, and walk
I wanna be where you are
Track Name: The Whole Buffalo
When you're done convincing me and I'm done convincing you
Honey, you know we're just gonna do whatever we're gonna do
and when I'm done crying over things that ain't true
When you're done fighting against the wings that lift you
and when I'm done lying about the diamonds in my shoes
Oh honey you know we're just gonna do whatever we're gonna do

And I won't hide my devotion, I won't cover my love
with a cold ambivalence or readiness to run
I am buffalo abundance
Readiness to give
My whole damn body is built for it

So you can take your time testing the depth of my love
My tears, they are fleeting, and my God is enough
and you know I'll keep on walking
I'll move steady on through
Cause honey you know we're just gonna do whatever we're gonna do

And I won't hide my devotion, I won't cover my love
with a cold ambivalence or readiness to run
I am buffalo abundance
Readiness to give
My whole damn body is built for it

So the gifts you've been receiving
you get to keep them, bones and all
Don't you know when you take the buffalo,
you take the buffalo whole.
