    Preorder it here: smarturl.it/greatest-giftnnLyrics:nnAs if you know the story of Wallowa Lake:nLeviathan first hid in the deep where her children sleepnShe kept them hidden from the plaguennBut have you heard the story of my mother’s fate?nShe left us in Detroit in the rain with a pillow casenFortune for the paper weightnnWe followed her to Joseph, near the Indian raidnShe wept among the weeds, hide and seek, for the fallen chiefnSpathiphyllum on his gravennAnd like the cedar wax wing, she was drunk all daynWe put her in the sheet, little wreath, candles on the cratenAs the monster showed its facennAs she waits for her children in the shadenDemogorgon or demigod the ghost paradenNo oblation will bring her back to our placennShe stayed within the deep end of Wallowa LakenThe undertow refrained with the flame of a feathered snakenCharybdis in its shallow gravennShe gave us one last feature: the fullness of her facenIn the shade of “Hin-mah-too-yah…” (Red Napoleon)nAs the demon took her placennAs we wait for the waters to residenHer remarkable stoicism and her pridenWhen the dragon submerged we knew she had died
