about

Tasting notes: Winters snowed in with the family, Medieval Hunts, and "Much Ado About Nothing."

lyrics

Between the hawkish and the haggard
Lie rabbits in the snow
Alive as long as neither knows

The winter thinned me like a thicket
And pricked my bitten toes
The tracks turn scarlet as I go
I run away, the blood runs cold

A hart so white see
The wolves are preying
A murder rises within me
And I’m raving, raving
I bare my teeth at
The one you’re saving
The skin worn bare by the leash
You tear and tame me
I’m raving, raving

And I have marks upon my body
As deep as you could drive
Your bitter bolts and silver knives

A story written in the sinew
Where it might signify
The love I feel when you let fly
And why the words do multiply

A hart so white see
The wolves are preying
A murder rises within me
And I’m raving, raving
I bare my teeth at
The one you’re saving
The skin worn bare by the leash
You tear and tame me
I’m raving, raving

But every branch I break in running
I stop and break for you
You set your trap and tie the noose
I slip by head into the loop

about

The Foxtrap Compromise Williamsburg, Virginia

We are The Foxtrap Compromise. The smell of sawdust and coffee on a cool autumn morning. The awakening spray of saltwater, standing on cliffs facing the ocean. We write stories and sing them as songs. Songs concerning such things as motion, the end of the world, and lighthouses.

Indulge your ears.
