This song speaks to the beauty and fragility of life. Dedicated to, and in memory of Anna Stacey.


Anna send a postcard from the other side.
Anna left her ghost next to her best friend crying;
out and up and loud and quiet now.

She wore her skin just like a painting;
her canvas, bleached out by the hospital bed.
Florescent lights shine on her face and arms and legs.
She is the beauty that exists after it’s dead.

I’ll be your haunt if you just stay for a while.
Don’t leave this place just yet, you’re only a child.
My heart is alone. My chest is your haunted home.

I’m all alone now, hope I’m wrong about the soul,
left to fend for myself out in this Minnesota cold.
Hope you’re listening. I hope you miss me.
I hope there’s something left of you that’s still a mystery.
I hope we meet again once our bones have turned to dirt,
and we can share a seed and water and repopulate the earth.
We’ll be gods again.
We’ll be gods again.
