This means that the color of the disc won't be known until the pressing is complete (hence the random colors in the mockups).

    NOTE: Production on the vinyl is a little behind, so shipment isn't expected until the end of June.

lyrics

There is hope in being here,
through 37 in a year.
I take my porridge oats with cream and fruit
& it turns day all lily white and orchid blue.

With the light upon the lake
and the swimmers in the shade,
I’ve never seen this tint of teal before;
the shadows dance across the harbor floor.

and I pedal faster just to keep my balance,
though I know not where I go.
And she asks if I believe in magic.
And I say that I don’t know
,
but there is something in this glow.

I witnessed care inside the train;
a hand outstretched to feed the lame.
While we were smoking at the reservoir,
I saw her crying in the dining car.

I carry nothing on my back
that I would wish that we would lack

and I pedal faster just to keep my balance,
though I know not where I go.
And she’ll ask if I believe in magic
and I’ll keep saying I don’t know.
Still there is something in this glow.
And Christ is hanging by a rope
And I saw the smoke begin to flow
and lead the wanderers back home.
And the muses whisper low
as the wind moves through the close.
Let the river lead us home.

There is hope in being there;
a beauty I would wish to share.
The living water and the sylvan bed gown.
With all this light inside, I lay my head down.
