The plants are brittle and dry
Towers the colour of the sky
There is a ghost of a tree
Up the side of a building

Fire shrinks back inside
Red blood under a scab
Like fruit and ripe
At the core when it’s wrinkled outside

I expand and contract
I breathe in and out
Try to anticipate change
When to be quiet when to be brave

I walk through trees with headphones on
I sit on stumps listening to songs
I walk to work in dark blue light
Street lamps still on from last night
I walk deep into the city
Between trees and buildings
Nowhere to go but farther from home


from Thru The Nite, released July 24, 2017
Henry Ireland: Words, vocals, guitar, melodica, violin
Nicol Parkinson: drums
