Track Name: Leaning Into the Evenings
Text: Pablo Neruda
Translation: Mark Eisner

Leaning into the evenings I throw my sad nets 
to your ocean eyes.

There my loneliness stretches and burns in the tallest bonfire, 
arms twisting like a drowning man's.

I cast red signals over your absent eyes 
which lap like the sea at the lighthouse shore.

You guard only darkness, my distant female, 
sometimes the coast of dread emerges from your stare.

Leaning into the evenings I toss my sad nets 
to that sea which stirs your ocean eyes.

The night birds peck at the first stars 
that twinkle like my soul as I love you.

Night gallops on her shadowy mare 
scattering blue wheat stalks over the fields.
Track Name: The Portent
Text: Herman Melville

Hanging from the beam,
Slowly swaying (such the law),
Gaunt the shadow on your green,
Shenandoah!
The cut is on the crown
(Lo, John Brown),
And the stabs shall heal no more.

Hidden in the cap
Is the anguish none can draw;
So your future veils its face,
Shenandoah!
But the streaming beard is shown
(Weird John Brown),
The meteor of the war.
