about

A bit that was caught in the gut, coughed up, drifted around then floated to the heads. Echolocation of rock bottom topography. Ambergris, a one time indigestible artifact, a cowboy karaoke, greased by the film of time, offered as counterpoint to that fecund mess that isn't song.

Track Name: dark eyes
Look upon the land with your dark eyes
The moon is rising in our lungs
Woods are burning turn your black eye
A liquid limb succumbs

Heads bobbing on spines
A slurred understanding
Wading in a wake of wine
As gravity does drain our acrobatics

Look upon the land with your dark eyes
The moon is rising in our lungs
Your fingertips I love in the night sky
Like pearls in the summer sun

What was that name?
My memory's gone astray
The spirits in our mouths ignite
On the backs of smoke and vines we ride

If we trip this snare of landmines
Blood will surely flow
Will they say that we were stupid?
It isn't like we didn't know
In a bath all night waterlogged
An echo in a grain silo
We can mend the torn horizon
The night is ours...

Oh my Jesus! well i wonder!
You're streaking through the razor snow
Isn't lovin hard to follow
I didn't get the horoscope

But lose our heads not if our legs are hollow
Wading in a wake of wine
The night is here and ours to swallow

If we drink this cord of light
Then we will surely come
If we didn't have this slow rise
We wouldn't be half as loved
Hera's hangin with her bull whip
Will we brand the sting
We can mend the torn horizon
Shouldering our slings
Track Name: waxwing
Wingtips the color of what they eat
Passin berries up branches
Is this what you see?

Early out walkin
Found two dead waxwings
Facing one another
Beneath the sky in the window pane

Is it good for me?
Or should i let it be?
Can you see what is blind to me?
Track Name: brainwashed
Do i have
To hit rock bottom
Hit rock bottom

Always
Learning the hard way
Learning the hard way

Brainwashed
To lose my lead
Brainwashed
And now i bleed all over

Burnin
The candle at both ends
The candle at both ends

Can i
Tie up the loose ends
Always some loose ends

Brainwashed
To give up my sweat
Brainwashed
And then forget all over

Brainwashed
To go so far
Brainwashed
And now i start all over
Track Name: high hopes
Baby can you be true
Baby can you be true
Thats all I really want from you
Baby be true 'cause that's all i can do
For you

You put me down
You treat me bad
You know your'e the worst shit I ever had
And I only had high hopes for you
Baby I just want you to be true
Track Name: as is
Help me out as I shore this sleepless notion
That I'm shattered by you leaving me alone
You see I'm just sufferin from my devotion
And the thought that nothin I did was wrong

The harpies bade beware
On our limbs the talons tear
It's a sanguinary snare
And there's nothing of what we're made to repair

I've become so grotesque emulation
And I've squandered the character I've earned
Atrophied in my pathetic prostration
Yeah I bowed before your beauty as it burned

The harpies bade beware
On our limbs their talons tear
It's a sanguinary snare
And there's nothing of what we're made to repair

We both bleed in the ruins of our yearning
Would it be better to just shoot you in the face
Ah it's just pain of molting and returning
To our naked and glowing grace

The harpies bade beware
On our limbs their talons tear
It's a sanguinary snare
And there's nothing of what we're made to repair
Track Name: link razor
Trip rock war del
One eyed trout in a modest bed
Insects run all around my head

Fall... days... light... dies...
Every year it's the same nadir
Solar breath whisper in my ear

Storm above me
No stars to guide me home

I want what i said
Your knife to my chest
Being with you I've known death
Storm above me
No Stars to guide me home

Gloam green adore me
Head is tired no ride tonight
Bled on the bank no cars in sight

All day fight my
Arm is tied and I didn't get fed
One eyed trout in a modest bed

Storm above me
No Stars to guide me on

Storm above me
Lay beside me for...
Track Name: winterwonderfuck
Went to bed late, rose early
Winterwonderfuck and my pocket's empty
All my surroundings are on fire
My blood my eyes my ears
A gospel choir

Losin money has lifted a veil
The deafening frequency of finances fail
I'm adorned by the tactile starstuff on my tongue
The future is fertile the past already dung

The turnaround in Simone's lilac wine
And J. Giorno's on the pulpit so devine
Chemical vertigo and libidinal exhaustion
Not crushed beneath the weight of possession

Losin money has lifted a veil
The deafening frequency of finances fail
I'm adorned by the tactile starstuff on my tongue
The future is fertile the past already dung
Track Name: walk off
I didn't want to rise
From the comfort of your body
How it kept me warm all night
I was afraid of what I'd find
On the other side of the bedpost
In the cold outside

And I didn't walk to find
What the other's did to pass the time
I walked out to walk off my mind
Walked out to walk off my mind

And my ego's beginning to resemble a vulture
That's pullin at the tendons of a freshly killed cadaver

And What I thought was waning
Was only just beginning
I walked out to walk off my mind
Walked out to walk off my mind

And I wandered to the river to get some perspective
Found the water frozen and a bit too reflective

And what I thought was winning
Was the ice below me thinning
I walked out to walk off my mind
Walked out to walk off my mind
Walked out to walk off my mind
Walked out to walk of my mind
