Track Name: Tupelo
Siftin' through some dead man's life
Talkin' to his grievin' wife
Yard sale down in Tupelo
Took a couple things home

Shelled pecans, honeybees
Magnolia blossoms on the breeze
Natchez Trace, and oh, those trees
They run right up to the road

Everywhere I look I see the King is still a boy
I can hear his laughter here before I hear that voice
That voice that every mama knows
Liquid whiskey dreams and ramblin' rose
Sunday drive in Tupelo

AM it don't come in clear
FM ain't got a god damned thing I wanna hear
So I'll just listen to the music
Of my wheels on gravel road

Gospel song from some old shack
Just enough to take me back
I ain't been to church in years
Ain't no time now for me to go
It's time for me to go

Everywhere I look I see the King is still a boy
I can hear his laughter here before I hear that voice
That voice that every mama knows
Liquid whiskey dreams and ramblin' rose
Sunday drive in Tupelo

Siftin' through some dead man's life
Talkin' to his grievin' wife
Yard sale down in Tupelo
Took a couple things home
Track Name: Hail the Sun (an Ava song)
Hail the Sun

I was all a straight line never veering from my path
My own light in the dark void; nothing to distract
A heart of ice on fire and every single eye
Jealous of my freedom as I blazed across the sky

You all golden brilliance and a warmth that radiates
Your gravity more tempting than any I would ever taste
Now I'm caught up in your orbit and I'm bending to your form
And I find myself revolving in a circle of your warmth

Hail the Sun, that is you in my life
Even as you melt this ice away
I become less of me, more of you
With each passing day
Hail the Sun

I was all a straight line, now you're the center of it all
And I find myself returning, ever turning as I fall
Knowing in the falling I am letting go my fear
And our embrace may last a million years

Hail the Sun, that is you in my life
Even as you melt this ice away
I become less of me, more of you
With each passing day
Hail the Sun

I was all a straight line never veering from my path
My own light in the dark void, nothing to distract
Now I'm dancing in your orbit and I swear I'll never leave
Someday I'll crash into you, and I will cease to be

Hail the Sun, that is you in my life
Even as you melt this ice away
I become less of me, more of you
With each passing day
Hail the Sun
Track Name: Poison Garden (an Ava song)
Poison Garden

Do not breathe too deep
Careful where you place your feet
Root and stem, leaf and seed
Flowering vine, tricksy weed

Welcome to my poison garden
May you find your ease
Step into my poison garden
Sleep

Morning's glory, night's shade, oh
Elderberry, mistletoe
Rain to cleanse, then bring your flame
Choose your path, child; it's yours to name

Welcome to my poison garden
May you find your ease
Step into my poison garden
Sleep

Sleep the night ... Sleep fore'er
Belladonna's blooming there
Daffodil and buttercup
Peace is sure if there's enough
And there's enough

Opium's poppy, hemlock, yew
Wormwood, foxglove, mandrake root
Trumpets wild angels blow
Berries on lantana grow

Welcome to my poison garden
May you find your ease
Step into my poison garden
Sleep
