when hawks glide underwater

and salmon replace the unborn

the forgotten will rise from the oceans

nests of kelp all strewn in their horns

and whispering

"please take us back. please take us back. we've learned our lessons."



and kate will break in down here

without your seasons and fearless snow

and kate will break in down here

without your seasons and fearless bones

and white fanged foreverness

bare footed wilderness

green tangled gills need rest

and we can be forever blessed

we can be forever blessed

if we take the back roads like you said

if we take the back roads



and here on this pile of shell

i call out

to the pods all gathered like thunderheads

under-in our hands

crying with your songs like a peaceful death

please teach us release

teach me release



cause' kate will break in down here

without your seasons and fearless snow

and kate will break in down here

without your seasons and fearless bones

and white fanged foreverness

barefooted wilderness

green tangled gills need rest

and we can be forever blessed

we can be forever blessed

if we take the back roads like you said

if we take the back roads



and here on this pile of driftwood

i will

carefully string up

stick by stick

thin by thick

bit by bit

rib by rib

rib by rib

rib by rib

rib by rib

until a marble of you dances and chants

"in perfect balance take me back.

in perfect balance take me back.

i've learned my lesson."



and white fanged foreverness

barefooted wilderness

green tangled gills need rest

and we can be forever blessed

we can be forever blessed

if we take the back roads like you said

if we take the back roads

    General Commenti think the 'unborn' she refers to in this could be all the generations of native americans who were cut off after families were massacred. the idea of kate wolfe coming back to this earth is a fantasy she has in this song that will happen at the end of time, only when these shifts take place and everyting is ready. some kind of ritual.
