Sands turn Swallow me Warmly take me in Etch your narrations Across my skin As strong cuts Shatter again Churn me in Floating deaf You’ll churn me in Beneath an ocean Of lacerating ends And I’ll calm down
Burning 00:53
With Money 02:59
As I lay down Resting in the heat My frame’s perspective falls Steel bones are running And they shudder From the weight Kiss my head Lay me down With my knees in the dirt Contorted and asleep I’ll dream in their arms I’ll dream in their arms While my eyes remain awake With desire Within a sea of sound I’m alone in the fire Until I come around With my knees in the… With money
The Shade 06:18
I see you Your colors bloom though Holes in a shroud of leaves Veined and golden wings Caught on the wind A womb In a gray fog If your thoughts could leave And feed upon your templates Chasing all the seeds You’ve lost I’ll count them all And lay upon the grasslands Underneath the shade Of the worn branches Count them all for me As they lay upon the trash again And we’ll graze on The long pasture Where our arms are bled And lodged beside the train tracks Ragged from the rails And they won’t grow back
Blooming 02:33
Dirty 06:10
“Oh was it a waste That I loved you” What could I say To make you stay? “It could not rain If I loved you” Well the ground’s almost dry You’ll come home dirty Come and I’ll let the rain wash you Home love, I’ll know As it washes over me Over me
