lyrics

The smokey sky, the oak and I
Awoke to find a cinnamon-shade world
The crimson leaves hid in my sleeves
The amber-ember-autumn flag unfurled

And I can hear it falling with the weight of acorns
Wondering for how much longer I can take more
The steady pitter patter from on high
We open our umbrellas to the weight of acorns
Crashing through the branches as they wait, then break more
Percussive and persistent lullaby

The vibrant air, a silent prayer
The violet, iridescent morning light
A vesper dream, a whispered scream
The morning turns to evening turns to night

And I can hear it falling with the weight of acorns
Wondering for how much longer I can take more
The steady pitter patter from on high
We open our umbrellas to the weight of acorns
Crashing through the branches as they wait, then break more
Percussive and persistent lullaby
