Track Name: URIEL (NYLON SOUL VERSION)
THE SAND HEAVES LIKE A TEMPLE
I RAN MY HANDS OVER THE STRANGE, HOT STONE
HE THREW HIS YARROW ON THE FLOOR
AND NEW SPACES WERE TOLD

SOLOMON'S HOME, URIEL'S HOME
CARELESS FOREVER
I COULD SPELL HIS NAME WITH MY TONGUE
BUT I CAN'T PRONOUNCE THIS LOVE

WHY CAN'T I CARE
THE WAY I SHOULD?
THE WISHES CAN'T UNITE
UNITY, FOR THE NIGHT
Track Name: OUTER MAP, INNER MAP
YOU FOLDED INTO THE NIGHT WITH AN ANCIENT GRACE
THE PERFECT TUNING OF A CITY WOULD HANG LIKE AN AURORA'S CURTAIN
CAREFULLY YOU PEEKED INSIDE TO SEE A LINE OF FACES INSET ON A VELVET RING
SURE AND EASY, ALL THE TOWERS AND TURRETS ARRANGED INTO HOMEWORK
BUT WHAT ARE THOSE STRANGE SPACES I LIVE IN?
RANDOMLY ARTICULATED GRADIENTS OF BLACK
AND BRIGHT BLACK
COAL SPIRIT AND NAPHTHA PURRING LAZY HALOS OF SMOKE
ISLANDS AND BASINS OF CLEAR WATER
YOU PROBABLY THINK IT IS "A REWARD TO BE UGLY"
NOT OWED GLANCES OR THOUGHTS BUT
STILL DOMINATING YOUR PRESENCE HERE, IN THOSE SPACES I RESIDE IN
ACUTELY AWARE OF THE DIZZY SOUND OF YOUR HAIR
THAT WE ALL WATCH

UNRAVEL INTO A CONSTELLATION OF GUTS AND GLORY
AND SUN BURNS
MAYBE THE ONLY WAY FOR YOU TO ACCEPT A COMPLIMENT
IS TO DISREGARD YOUR PHYSIOLOGY
AND ANATOMY
Track Name: MOKIE
NEW BEAUTY BREEDS NEW FUNERALS
I COULD SEE IT COMING BABY
JUST AS CLEAR AS A BROOK
FIREWORKS FOR JESSICA RABBIT

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME A THING
NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO SELL ME ANYTHING
NOW, YOU'RE READING MY SIGNS
DON'T YOU TELL ME A THING

I WON'T WANT TO HEAR
YOU FEEL SO LOW
HUNCHED OUT, OVER THE ROAD
TRYING TO TAKE YOU OUT

MAYBE YOU COULD HAVE THE FIRST TOAST
WE'LL POUR TWO GLASSES OF SEMEN
PUT THE SEED IN YOU
I'M GLAD YOU FEEL FREE
GLAD YOU FEEL FREE

NOW I'M LOST IN YOUR FOG
NOW I'M LOST IN YOUR FOG
NOT FOR THE FIRST TIME
BUT LONGER THAN THE LAST
Track Name: SHOULD HAVE HAD IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
IT'S THE BIG SOUL IN THE MOUTH
SURE, IT CAN CRAWL ITS WAY OUT
SHOULD I SINK MY HANDS IN BURIED LIGHT?
TIE MY HANDS DOWN, TRUST YOU THIS TIME?

YOU'VE GROWN ON ME LIKE A VIRUS
TUNNELED YOUR WAY INTO MY SKIN
BUT I'M SURE YOU LIKE THE WEIRD WAY...
THAT, I'M SURE YOU MUST KNOW NOW

YOU SHOULD HAVE SHOT ME WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE
SHE'S GOT THAT WINE EYE AND A FOGGED UP MOUTH
A CIRCUIT OF NYLON WORDS RUNNING OUT
RUNNING OUT

SAVE ME THE NIGHT
SHOULD HAVE
HAD IT
RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
Track Name: OBEAH
THE SILVER SPIRIT
LEAVING TOMORROW
THE SILVER SPIRIT
IT'S GOING HOME

THE SILVER SPIRIT
IT'S FORWARD KNOWING
JUST STOP IT, DON'T PRAY.

YOU KNOW ABOUT THE WILD SUN
YOU KNOW

SAY MORE, CRY MORE
FEELING
ALONE
FOOLS SAY
YOU'VE BEEN ALONE

BE THERE, ALWAYS
DON'T GO, RISE HERE:
SHOULD I LEAVE IT
AWAKE?

WOULD YOU BREAK YOUR PROMISE IF I KNEW?
WOULD YOU BREAK YOUR PROMISE IF I KNEW?


IT'S COMING HOME TO YOU

THE SILVER SPIRIT
COMING HOME
THE SILVER SPIRIT
IT'S COMING HOME FOR YOU
