Volume I: Saginaw Sweetheart
Never To Rise

If you want to go down
in the North Woods the waves do pound
And if you don't want to be found
the waves will swallow you like the ground

And never to rise
the world will never see your eyes
and never to be seen
the world will never know
the strength of dreams

What can't be seen
the world will oft times label it obscene
But what is in your heart
don't worry child
because that is not a part

But never to be heard
now "silence" becomes the only word
and never to be known
there's a part of you you've got to show

Trying to be understood
ain't oft as easy as it should
But if you persevere
there are one or two maybe who can hear

So never be afraid
and your reward will be duly paid
and never to run
you've got to face, dear, the rising sun
