Track Name: If I Ever Get to Heaven
If I ever get to heaven I will fly back down and rearrange the houses in our town. No one will ever stop me. The view is like the mountains, but a little bit better, and you won't need to bring your sweater, unless you want it.

If I ever get to heaven I will build my house, and you can come over when you're in town. No one will ever stop you. The view is like the mountains, but a little bit higher, and there's no need for fire, unless you want it.

You might think its silly. I might think so too, but I swear I'll get to heaven if its the last thing I do.
Track Name: Oh My
My, oh my, what a great climbing tree! I could sit for hours in your branches and leaves. Oh, I don't want to go home.

Deep inside the forest, I'm the only one who knows the swirls of your roots like my fingers and toes. Oh, I don't want to go home.

When I walked out here last spring, your leaves a bright delicious green, you're my ladder to the sky. Oh my, oh my

You'll still be standing tall when I am lying in the ground. I hope for all the joy you'll bring the next time you are found. Oh, I don't want to go home.
Track Name: Polar bear
I thought about going to the farthest north to float away on the ice. When the sun peeks out and warms up the ground, it'll crack. I put on my shoes, and walked out the door, but forgot my coat on the bed. If I had been a polar bear then, I could've just kept walking.

I thought about going to the farthest north to swim away in the sea. When the sun peeks out and warms up the ground, it'll melt. The ice is clean and the ice is white on the water. If I had been a polar bear then, I could've just kept walking.
Track Name: Right Where You're Supposed to Be
From the moment I approached, you were sleeping. Soon you'll be sleeping ever more. The ashes in the hearth could suddenly catch spark, and the boards could break beneath your bed. You're right where you're supposed to be.

Of course you're young. You've hardly just begun to crawl. of course my job wouldn't be such fun if I cared of things like that at all. You're right where you're supposed to be.

If I were you I'd run as fast as you can. If I were you I couldn't even dream of what's about to happen.

Oh, it's cold. It would be such a shame if the windows were to open. You're right where you're supposed to be.
Track Name: Copper-Headed Snake
One knot is all it takes. Tied up in the right place, it sends the whole thing crashing down. Up in smoke, down the drain, I can't watch. I can't wait.

If you'd be so kind as to pull on this mistake, it'll straighten like a copper-headed snake. Up in smoke, down the drain, I can't watch. I can't wait.
