Track Name: CATARACT
Tuned
I'm lost in your in your hair again
Tied
And left on a skerry at ebb
I'll drown in that ocean
I am pleased to sink though
I'm sure you wear
Knickers and stockings

If I stuck my head at the fork, oh
I'm sure there would be a pulp fire
I'm anxious now

I can see the moment
Coming like a cataract
I'm anxious now
I can see the moment coming like
A cataract
I'm anxious now
I can see the moment
I'm anxious now
I can see the moment
Coming like
A cataract
Track Name: EVERYTHING WE FEEL HAS COME ALIVE
Almost right killed me from the mouth
Still don't and shouldn't know
Almost right killed me from the mouth
Always enough to make me sick
And all I want to say:
"Just because
Everything we feel has come alive"

Almost right killed me from the mouth
Still don't and shouldn't know
Almost right killed me from the mouth
And it always makes me sick
Just to not belong
"Everything we feel has come alive"
Track Name: CRANBERRY BOG (WE HAVE WATER IN THE STEAM ENGINE)
My body is a solar system
My body is a solar system
On its way to implosion
I carry black, white and grey matter across
Distances that are unthinkable
Movement, movement

And the green grass between lands
Is

Populated mostly by ghosts shuffling
To an unheard elevator song
And unheard choir

Each fingertip is a black-dwarf star
Looming far outside my reach
Tell me the tarot

And he was an ancient holiday
He was high to up ruins in Rome
Soul-sing higher, higher in that old town
He slept in buried semen

This is not what you're telling...
I am not casting spells
My body
Track Name: PALM IN THE BRAID
Yes, gold wide open
I want you to
Tangible
I want to be
Flexible

Some streams hardly demands
Closeness
While bleeding patience
Breeds the same

Carefully you are built by real
Trace the line preceding to
Find good math, to hear, to feel
Clear

Like you...

You show me continents
Secret braille on hiss, like you lies
Clear as old precio us metal
Old breathing and clearly beat you
Playing on the old team
Like you see

Like
Track Name: THE GEOLOGIST
There's broken jars in the home
Little hands scrambling to get
The porcelain
Night's fissure aids
Tumbling into the old age
Then a triangular cage
Just losing light all over the place

There's wild boars in the trees
Silent, hungry families
And the earth shifts again
With geology and gems
There's wild boars in the trees
Silent, hungry families
And the earth shifts again
With geology and gems

A waxy snap of a sugar pea
Coffee beans and Chinese tea
All the brothers and sisters walk home
For the night

All the brothers and sisters walk home for the night
Little smiling, skyward joys

Circuit seizure grease stars on supermarket city
Track Name: TAR
It's the ice, isn't it
You packed your mouth full of snow you
Shine like white gold
Breaking sunlight like a crystal would
This is all metal angles
Grinding black against bone

Stone on flesh
Steel on teeth
A french kiss
Lost in substance
I've got knives for feathers

You pet me the wrong way
I'll cut your fingers
The death of art
I'm at the helm
A crystal tick or a shining wreathe of wheat

Oh, saint on me
But when you smile it's a technicolour empire
Dripping in limestone
And bleeding with Persian silk

I've traded my first born son
For just one amber sheaf of wheat
I met a costume in July

Speaking through emerald cut facets
Dear child, I met you too
Full of tobacco and honey
Track Name: SINGULARITY
The lost easily tread on the nickle
Gut-gull of the beauty
Double test to the "supermarket city"
Burning in that impossible way
A hundred "grease stars"
Are nice the way they are
My hungry woman is crushed
By history
With an iron fist
Demands and demands
I got signet and her total
Key-rain ring
That she goes faster
She's curious, sure that I'm ingenuous

But I'll be as incredible
As a rot, a cigarette
Run down and feel the breast of my eye

See that too
It's the ugly worse
Across the street
To the charm piece
You watch me watch me
Watch me

The air conditioned smile
Floating across her mouth

In the possible room
Possible room
Track Name: SAD ROTOR
Turn, spark caught in the hallway
Jarred night by the bedside
Sorry but I screams as a skin
Now there's something in the water
Lights and beams caught in the delta
Waiting for a signal for this need
A dull pain through the wire seed
So we turn
Sad rotor in a tunnel
Turning a thousand symbols
Sorry but we screams as a pin
Turn
I am my daughter's son
Inside us the web is silk
Sorry but they
Screams as a siren
Sorry but they
Screams as a siren
Now there's something in the water
Lights and beams caught in the delta
Waiting for a signal of this need
A dull pain in the wire seed
Now there's something in the ship
A crack and leak
Or a neck with a crick
Waiting for a glyph to make some sense
Waiting for a break
Oh I need to rest

Oh I need to rest
Track Name: EDISON (AS RECITED BY A HIGH TENSION WIRE)
I promise
I'm gonna bleed like machine gun again
I promise
I'm gonna bleed without blood

I promise I'm going to sink like an old mine
You know me, I'm really stupid
I'm gonna sing like a

Rifle
I'm a bastard with a big digit
Face the North and suck in the air
It's the only time you'll get to breathe
One, two, three, four

Face the North and suck in that cold air
It's the only time you'll get to breathe
And one, two, three, four
I'm going down
With the glacier

I'm gonna lay me out on the ice
Smile and then
Face the North and suck in that cold air
It's the only time you'll to

Breathe

My mom choked on some filament while trying to light like an Edison
And though the wattage was high
She couldn't predict, she couldn't predict it'd snap back like some high tension
Wire
Track Name: YOU BURN SLOW I BURN FAST
You don't know
What
It's like
I feel
Something ugly
Inside
And I want to
Cut it out
Sick and fast
With a knife
Bright and black
I touched his skin like a gun
Soft and afraid
Pretty and cold
But
I saw what I looked like
In the mirror
Of the metal
Polished and vacant
Drugged and dumb
Nervous
You don't know what it's like
Anxious
You don't
Have what it takes
I feel no regret
When I split him like wood
I feel no sadness
When I bleed through the wood
And sheets
You don't know
What it's like
I feel something
Ugly inside
Bright and black
I touched his teeth
Like a saw
Edged and haunted
And drugged, and sexual
You burn slow, I burn fast
Don't feel okay
Track Name: STILL SUGAR
Come home, it's been so long now
White wire and outworn shoes
Stumble through the bramble
In the razor milk mirror labyrinth

Water in the teeth, sand in the home
Yes, it's finally making sense

My worst fear now is real
Struck a match struck a deal
All my fears, they are real
So yes, bleed out that sugar
My worst fear now is real
Struck a match struck a deal
All my fears, they are real
So yes, bleed out that sugar

Come home, it's been too long now
You drip like the pitch and click
Your jaw at the strawberry sky
Can't you think without your eyes

Yes, I think it's about that time

My worst fear now is real
Struck my home and solid bone
All iron, steam, and stone
So yes, bleed out that sugar
My worst fear now is real
Struck my home and solid bone
All iron, steam, and stone
So yes, bleed out that sugar
