lyrics

all you wild and full of sap be wary not to nourish ghosts
good hygiene in mountains means to land right where you fall
the rushes bundled into thatch from on the moor where hangs a man
and there the hanged man's semen dropped and there the mandrake grows
August falls and bates the foal trembling leg by trembling leg
towards a dream of opening against the brightening cold
October's golden straw is bound in sheaves while 'long the edge of town
a mandrake pulled a siren's call and there a dog lay stone
it takes a witch with wax filled ears, a dog tied to the mandrake root
he bates the dog to chase a stick that the shrieking root emerges
come and have a drink with me, a curse, a spell, a minor thing
and talk of lands once wet now dry and love's forsaken hold
perhaps a cure will come to mind if sleep could crack a cruel heartache
a root that's shaped just as a man could draw your feet to ground
on a Monday drown three bats within a vat of cow milk poured
on the grave where lay the devil's apple in a shroud
but tell no one from where you found this talisman worth more than gold
that through December hung as silent as a mandrake root
the rushes bundled into thatch from on the moor where hangs a man
and there the hanged man's semen dropped and there the mandrake grows
pocket seeds of noxious weeds and they'll become your currency
leave the dead to hang too long you'll see their shadows walk
