about

Anima Viroqua, Wisconsin

Jaia and Raina's harmonies reflect the meaning of the lyrics, contemplating human nature, healing, relationship, and oneness, and passes through a lens of transcendentalism saturated with images of the deepest roots of nature -- our earthen home, the fact that we are animals, and the endless fractal of breathing. Anima helps to remind us that we are all connected. ... more

Track Name: Out In The Woods
We went out in
the woods to
try and find something new
And our young hearts
so fickle with time
we’re just trying to hide
for a little while

But don’t get lost out there
‘cause I don’t know if I
will find you again
And don’t get lost out there
out in the woods

And the trees look down on us like we’re children
letting go of our mother’s hands
And darling soon we’ll understand
where it all began
where it all began

But don’t get lost out there
‘cause I don’t know if I
will find you again
And don’t get lost out there
out in the woods

And you say
we don’t have to have it all figured out
cause we’re still so young
we’re still so young
And you say
you don’t know if we’re gonna make it out
but for now we’ll run
for now we’ll run

For now we’ll run
while we still can
For now we’ll run
out in the woods
For now we’ll run
to where it all began
For now we’ll run
out in the woods
Track Name: Spinning
Across a valley of cotton grass
a hillside where time doesn't pass
and down the hill from the trees we ran
holding moments in our open hands

The trails in my palms are unread maps
things I have done have formed faded tracks
like the trails of stars, we drift with the breeze
or thunderstorms in the air that blow through the trees

My, how things get so dizzy,
when you realize you are spinning.

This willow tree where we rest
an ageless tune carries the sun as it sets,
and the lullaby sung to us by the moon
tells us "Try and rest your eyes, darling,
Morning will come soon"

And my, how things get so dizzy,
when you realize you are spinning
Track Name: Sisyphus
Look behind your eyes, there’s something sleeping there
Untold stories of a brokenness you couldn't bear
You are open skin, you’re paper thin, you’re still so small
You are dead leaves, a leaning tree catching fire till you fall

And you’ll burn
Until you’re nothing
But ashes
On the wind
Till you rise
New again
And all that you are is all I am,
Yeah, all that you are is all I am

Look behind your eyes, there's something waking there
Whirring neurons creating sparks and spaces in the air
You are growing and becoming, you must stand tall
To be knocked down, a catalyst, again you’ll fall

And you’ll burn
Until you’re nothing
But ashes
In the wind
Till you rise
New again
And all that you are is all I am,
Yeah, all that you are is all I am

Roll your stone
Walk back down the hill again
Track Name: Ships
Let’s fall in love
For just a little while
And make home for our bones by the sea

Let’s dissolve
Into a million things
And feel our skin become the wind and be set free

Lay me down in your sinking ship
My hands too tired to grip
Lay me down in your heaviness
Before we swim ashore

Let’s fall in love
For just a moment now
And sing a song and get it wrong and out of key

Let’s explode
Into smithereens
And feel our hearts become the stars that we now see

Lay me down in your sinking ship
My hands too tired to grip
Lay me down in your heaviness
Before we swim ashore

Let me float a while before I drown
Let me float a while in the sea
Let me float a while before I drown, before we sink
Let me float a while in the sea

(Lay me down in your sinking ship)
(Lay me down in your heaviness)
Track Name: Ghosts In The Garden
As I walk these empty streets
the sun burns down on me
but night will come to set them free
I will hear them, yes they will come for me

I am haunted
but these ghosts are here
to sing with me

I have learned to grow
flowers from this dust and bone
I have learned to sew
the seeds of the unknown

I am haunted
but these ghosts are here
to sing with me

There’s ghosts in
the garden
singing
