Wilderness

Lets be wilderness in the dark she said, in the dark so I won’t be alone

Let it under your skin for a moment, for a moment

So we can feel torment

 

I’m alone with the creatures you left in the dark where you found it

You’re a creature of habit, I’m a loneliness

 

Let the night undress in the dark she said

In the dark we’ll bury all our bones

Let the syllables stretch in our arms and legs in our teeth

In our tongues in our bated breath

Let’s suspend disbelief for a moment, for a moment

So we can feel death creeping in

Let it under your skin for a moment, for a moment

I want to feel torment

 

I’m alone with the creatures you left in the dark where you found it

You’re a creature of habit, I’m a loneliness

I’m a loneliness watching your breath in the dark where you found it

You’re a creature of habit, I’m a loneliness

 

I’m alone with the creatures you left in the dark where you found it

You’re a creature of habit, I’m a loneliness

And I’m a loneliness watching your breath in the dark where you found it

You’re a creature of habit, I’m a loneliness

I’m alone with the creatures you left in the dark where you found it

You’re a creature of habit, I’m a loneliness

I’m a loneliness my loneliness in the dark where you found it

You’re a creature of habit, I’m a loneliness

 

Lets be wildnerness I’m a loneliness

Let’s be wilderness, I’m a loneliness

 

I’m alone


Black Cloud

She can’t get out of her bed a big black cloud in the river of her head

Little by little by little just a little bit it enters the room

Behind the eyes you can feel her mind slit flow through the spine

It doesn’t matter what you did

Little by little by little just a little bit it starts to consume

 

I want my body back gimme the drug you say you never had

Gimme the drug you say you never had, gimme me the drug

Mama I’m contaminated gimme the drug you say you never had

Gimme the drug you say you never had

Gimme me the drug

 

There’s nothing outside there’s nobody left

Nowhere to hide nowhere to run or to forget

No one to find you if you ever tried to and nobody tries to

Sand in the sky drowning in the wind look in my eyes mama I’ve been contaminated

Little by little by little just a little bit can you forgive me

Can you forgive me?

 

I want my body back gimme the drug you say you never had

Gimme the drug you think you never had, gimme me the drug,

gimme me the drug, my body

Mama I’m contaminated gimme the drug you say you never had

Gimme the love you say you never had

Give me the drug

 

Gimme the drug

Gimme the drug

Gimme the love

Gimme the drug


Dead to the World

You are dead, dead, dead to the world

Diamonds and pearls dug from the center of the earth

Stuttering syllables that nobody heard, no one deserves

Lazarus up

The unavoidable unwavering world totally unconcerned if you got the stomach for it

The unavoidable unwavering world, you’re silhouette burns but you’re not permanent

 

All our lives are just a winding thread

Love forgets you but it won’t forgive

 

Spinning through our lives trying to find something to live by

We’re spiraling, yeah we’re spiraling toward our own demise trying to find but we can’t defy our gravity, yeah our gravity

Spinning through our lives trying to find something to live by

We’re spiraling, yeah we’re spiraling toward our own demise trying to find but we can’t defy our gravity, yeah our gravity

 

You are dead, dead whatever comes next 

Blow a kiss to the skylines, to the clouds over us

The unavoidable unwavering world your silhouette burns you are not permanent

 

All our lives are just a winding thread

Love forgets you but it won’t forgive

 

Spinning through our lives trying to find something to live by

we’re spiraling, yeah we’re spiraling toward our own demise trying to find but we can’t defy our gravity, yeah our gravity

Spinning through our lives trying to find something to live by

we’re spiraling, yeah we’re spiraling

toward our own demise trying to find but we can’t defy our gravity, yeah our gravity


Pasture

I have a dream reoccurring of yellow pastures and soft winds blowing

Up in the sky a bird of prey hovering by me nowhere to play

And in the distance I see a body but I’m not sure just what it is

 

I walk across the yellow pasture ever so carefully a soft tiptoeing

As if the slightest breath would awake it or awake me before I make it before I know it

 

And in those dreams where I get to see

What lies across the pasture from me

Sometimes a body, gnashing of teeth

Sometimes a hollow, a swarm of bees

Freshly dug grave, a deep-blue sea

Sometimes it’s you and you are sleeping

 

And in those dreams you are too dreaming

Of yellow pastures of worlds away

Of your love dreaming a world away

A warm wind blowing, a soft tiptoeing

 

Tiptoe away, tiptoe away, tiptoe away


Erase Your Heart

Let me be the light there’s a world outside

Let me be the one, let me be the one

Let me climb the vines of your violent eyes

You’re the one I love you’re the one I love

 

Maybe I can’t erase your heart

I can’t erase your heart I can’t erase you maybe I’m too

Maybe I can’t erase your heart            maybe I’m too scarred

I can’t erase your heart I can’t erase you

 

However we arrange he letters of our names you’re the one I love, you’re the one I love

Suspend in air, kiss me aware

Let me be the one, you’re the one I love

 

Maybe I can’t erase your heart

I can’t erase you heart                    maybe I’m too scarred

I can’t erase your heart I can’t erase you maybe I’m too

I can’t erase your heart I can’t erase you

 

I can’t erase your heart

I can’t erase your heart


Evil

Come on come on come on come on everybody gather around

All you wanna do is find some truth and tie your true love down

Evil, evil, evil, evil, evil are the lies you allow

Heaven is the day you finally face if god ever existed then it

 

Won’t fill the hole, won’t fill the hole, won’t fill the hole,

Won’t fill the hole, won’t fill the hole

All you wanna do, you gotta prove that you got control

 

Come on come on come on come on the universe is shouting out loud

All you wanna do is find some truth, a wife and some money for your mouth

Evil, evil, evil, evil, evil are the lies you endow

Heaven is the day finally face nobody gonna save you but yourself

 

It won’t fill the hole, it won’t fill the hole, it won’t fill the hole, it won’t fill the hole, it won’t fill the hole all you wanna do you gotta prove that you got control


Ithaca

Maybe I don’t wanna make it all good

Maybe I don’t really think that we would or should or could

Blue eyes sprites & Ithaca skies

Dusk upon your cinnamon eyes

Wrap my arms around your belly tell me lies, tell me lies, tell me lies

Maybe I don’t wanna make it alright

 

Ithaca

Ithaca

Ithaca

 

There is no place for you & I

No hidden face to recognize

I knew it before

I couldn’t look you in the eye

You could have said it first

But you don’t got the nerve

You don’t got the gall

You do not deserve

You could have said it first even if it hurts

I knew it before

I couldn’t look you in the eye

You could have said it first but you don’t got the nerve

You don’t got the gall

We do not deserve

You could have said it first

Even if it hurt I knew it before

I couldn’t look you in the eye

You could have said it first

Even if it hurts

I knew it before

I couldn’t look you in the eye

 

Ithaca

Ithaca


Fields & Valleys

Roller coaster ride on by roller coaster blue

Fields and valleys hills have eyes

Clouds that color you

Doesn’t matter what they say

Only what is true

Doesn’t matter what you did

Only what you do

 

They’re only trying to use you

They’re only trying to confuse you

It’s in the dust behind you

I won’t let it find you

 

They say the good lord gonna come down in front of you

They say the good lord gonna come but it wasn’t true

No deception in your eyes all i see is you

No deception no disguise all i see is you

 

They’re only trying to use you, they’re only trying to confuse you

It’s miles behind you I won’t let it find you

It’s miles behind you It’s miles behind you


Cling to Me

He spoke into her knees always into her knees

First in her lips then into her chest then irrevocably

Always her soft white knees, mid September light knees

Time will erase the rest of her body form its incorrigible memory

 

La dada da dada da La da dada dada da

Why do you cling to me only to let me go?

Speak now so feverishly let our warm blooded blood flow

The grandness of our love to frame above our bed

Time will erase the rest of our bodies from its incorrigible maladies

 

La dada da dada da La da dada dada da

 

We’ll dance into the breeze we’ll sleep away our age

Til we are deaf and dumb and young and not afraid

Of love and death and age, of love and death and age

Time will erase the rest of our bodies from our incorrigible history

And I will build a machine from the scraps of our bodies

And I will build a machine from the scraps of our bodies

And I will build a machine from the scraps of our bodies

And we will build machines with our bodies

 

La dada da dada da La da dada dada da

 

(Cling to me won’t you cling to me)

(Cling to me won’t you cling to me)


Window

We married too soon, could think of nothing else to do

Id bring you the moon but time inevitably consumes

Holding you tightly the summer holds onto her young

Kiss her so lightly so she can forget you are gone

 

But how? No I won’t walk away from you now

How? No I won’t walk away from you now

 

Thousands of bats beady eyed flesh hungry bats

Hover and scatter while you lay asleep in your bed

Should I invite the epidemic? The property’s infested with them

Despite imminent threat, I remember you telling me then

To just close the window

 

You just close the window

You just close the window (no I won’t walk away from you now)

You just close the window (no I won’t walk away from you now)

 

Close the window
