    This is the CD version of the album "Marshweed in the Garden", containing the eleven tracks available in digital form on the Bandcamp site. It comes shrinkwrapped in a six-paneled standard-size cardstock case, with cd tucked inside the third panel. I recommend getting the CD version of this album if only for the artwork and lyrics panels.

lyrics

Hello hello hello hello young growing thing
What did you do to the crack in the rock?
Once so small, now so tall, I hardly know ya.

And I did and I did and I did forget myself
There's no one else to tend to you
But here you are, a fiery star, and almost blooming.
And you say, "Blame it on the rain."

And the light and the light and the light and the power to
Promote your growth, invest in you
Takes a heart, it takes art, and it takes time
But mostly, mostly it takes sun.

-PSA-

…and someday, you can sing:
"Hello hello hello hello young growing thing
What did you do to the crack in the rock?
Once so small, now so tall, I hardly know ya."

And I did and I did and I did recognize you when
You were a seed; you grew for me.
Your nutrients will help me too, and my family.

And we sing, "Blame it on the rain"
("Water when seed is sprouting.
Water first and feed with sun and soil.")
