lyrics

Stuck in the morning haze
Awakened sleep for days
I brought the christened wine
And laid it down sideways

Knee deep within the brush
I lost it in the sage
Upon the dirt I snuck you out
Averting my own gaze

Will it be will it be
Liquid unto thee
I snag a butcher's cup and draft it for all to see

Will it spill will it fill
My hand's underneath
I drink the beggar's wine rotting next to me

This river flows in time
With the beating of my heart
It's depth reaches out
And asks me not to part

With the way we walk about
And listen for the sound
Of broken cries upon the vines
And treason all around

Will it be will it be
Liquid unto thee
I grab the widow's hand and shake it for all to see

Will it spill will it fill
My hand's underneath
I touch the miller's wife crying next to me
