A tower of smoke.
A tower of holy ghosts
has covered this place like the soil on the bones i laid
but I was not made to be that brave.
Clouded eyes over an arid face,
a storming mind from all the thundering of life.
O will you let my spirit rise?

O the howling glow
the lonely sound of voices slowly echos
into the bright flame like a log beneath a rolling wave
But I was not made to be afraid
Fires dancing on a houses shape
but fires die a lot like our old country sides
O will you let my spirit rise?

In the magic hour on the southern shore
I can see your shape in the dirty water
At the break of day, in the morning light
I will lift my hands to the holy mountain
as my body lies on the forest floor
I can hear the drums of the feral ocean
and on the silver wind, I will lift my voice
to the Son of Man, I will sing your praises.

Let my spirit rise.


from Mt. St. Helens, released August 21, 2012
