heart Cooks Brain - The Lonesome Crowded West
Lyrics:

Its land mine
Its coal mine
Its a bad thought

I'm on my way to god don't know
my brain's the burger
and my hearts the coal
I'm trying to get my head clear
I push things out through
my mouth but get refilled through my ears
I get refilled through my ears

I'm on my way to god don't know or care
My brains the weak heart
and my heart's the long stairs

Inland from Vancouver's shores
the ravens and the seagulls
push each other inward and outward

In this place that I call home
my brain's a cliff
and my heart's the bitter buffalo

We tore one down and erected another there
the match of the century:
absence vs. thin air

I'm on my way to god don't know
my brain's the burger
and my hearts the coal
I push things out through my mouth
but get refilled through my ears

In this life that we call home
the years go fast and
the days go so slow
