    Beauty and quality clothing the sounds, featuring the artistic eye and brush of Justyne Griffin, the camera lens of Alexas Esposito, and the finishing touches of Pat Burke on the design and duplication.

    Worth it just for the insert, where you'll find some sprawling lyrics and a letter in my own hand set upon Justyne's incredible watercolors.

lyrics

Lord how blue the hills far away
And the haze of the sky is like sand
There must be a thread holding me
As I open the palms of my hands

Lord how blue the hills far away and the gray sandy sky
So blue I forgot my name
Lord it’s hard to find the words to describe what it’s like being alive
All I know is that I needn’t ask why till you close my eyes

Lord how sweet the sound of a wave
As I send it careening through space
It returns to tell what it learned
When it ricocheted off a blue face

Lord what a skyline seen from the valley
Why must I be stranded on Earth?
I want gravity skywards
Lend me the right words now
Before my view goes blank and this vision escapes
Twelve shades of blue are bursting my seams
I’m only one piece in dreams

Lord how blue the hills far away
I just noticed today
So blue I forgot my name and what I came here to do
Lord it’s hard to find the words to describe what it’s like being alive
All I know is that those hills will be there
Long after you close my eyes
