"Schoolbooks" as written by and Nicholas Jon Peill....
There's a sharp frost at night
Should I take this outside
Oh, but I won't get caught
Break the frost on the door

Schooboks float
On a river side
Like leaves they choose
To curl up and die

Fields from a faded dream
Figures that won't stay still
Ride across frozen streams
Stifle their whispering

Schoolbooks float
On a river side
Like leaves they choose
To curl up and die

Schoobooks float
On a river side
Like leaves they choose
To curl up and die

Schoolbooks float
On a river side
Like leaves they choose
To curl up and die

    General CommentThis song is so frickin' ethereal. I love it.

    Not only are the lyrics beautiful, but the melody is enthralling. I love the way it builds up, stops, and picks up again near the end.

    Come to think of it, the entire album is a puree of goodness.
