Track Name: can't remember
starved straight all december and the 3-headed dog
stained red, can’t remember why I ate that at all
now my mother’s withered in her grief,
and she’ll stay like that now for some time
and my father’s just as guilty,
as the man I’ve betrothed

can’t remember..

and the frost on leaves
is forming as I leave
do you remember?
the once eternal spring
do you resent him?
the man who’s taken me
do you resent him?

mom’s sent a messenger from the house of the gods
return to the sunlight with a bouquet of flowers
but my home is back in the darkness
it’ll be like that now for all time
and I’ll follow him through the fissure
to the deep of the earth

and the former me
is abdicating this
can’t you see me?
as the dark world’s proper queen
do you remember
the once eternal spring?
do you remember
after all these awful years?

can’t remember..
Track Name: quarterlife
you have only
paced as long as you could
& eventually..
things have gone way too good
well, can’t understand
part of his plan
it’s not coming through, I blame
that I’m insane

ahhh, you have been too complacent
ahhh, never making advances
dream on your own
while you creep on your phone
& try to disown
all those chances you’ve blown

in the quarterlife
your follies
you craven
you can’t react
just fall into bitter sleep
can’t understand
part of his plan
it’s not coming through, I blame
that I’m insane

found you in places
lost you in faces
Track Name: rhododendrons
don’t you?
don’t you ever want it back?
feeling trapped

don’t you?
don’t you ever want it back?
a photograph

i can see the dusk in you,
in the mountain streams

dawn is coming,
and you stopped moving

dawn is coming,
and everything
stopped

you make the afternoon so bright
Track Name: bored window
everything's south
yellow light on
bored of this town
so shed my signs
this time,
get off the grind

such a bored window,
i want to control
downed and rosey pillows,
i want to control
don't want any trouble,
just want to control
you think that I'm trouble,
just want to control

here in old town
it’s too far.
it won’t stop.
Track Name: dunno why
i don't know why
but i don't love you
Track Name: daymoon
i could never understand the time
i felt bodies crossing over mine
isn't there a word that you could say
to make everybody go away

and when the day breaks
and the moon stays
i'll remember you in the waves

something's crossing on the borderline
a feather shadow giving me a sign
isn't there a word that you could say
to make everybody go away

and when the day breaks
and the moon stays
i'll remember you in the waves

and when the day is done
and the night is on
i'll remember what i did to you

i've waited all my life
waiting for something i don't know exactly why
Track Name: other places
you left your door unlatched
i laid down
in your room wondering
where you were

i left your door unlatched
i laid down
in my bed dreaming uh,
about you
Track Name: mineral pool
the first time
i saw you
i knew
you would pull the plug for me.
we were in the mineral pool

i never thought this would be
a love like feeling

you said you were not sure
turn a switch on for me
no one’s ever sure
i knew you’d pull the plug for me

i can see for way too far
the lights reflected in the stone
Track Name: sudden roots
shade..
those sudden leaves can make you stay
these sudden roots will help you grow
i thought it less like a new home,
another place to hide my bones

but it’s too hot to stray from the stream
through the tall blades of grass you can’t see
there’s a darkness looming on thee
& a long neck to sink in my teeth

no word is deserving, no word is..
Track Name: riverstone
you’re a river stone
ankles deep in mud

they all knew when to swim
no but you’re half in
the current's made you what you are:
a shiny piece of earth

dig your feet way down
it keeps going deeper now
the river’s made you what you are
the river washes all away
Track Name: a wolf
and if starry eyes could speak
they’d speak in tongues

and if starry eyes could see,
they’d see through lies

under mantras, under all I see a wolf

and if starry eyes could blink
they’d blink in time

and if starry eyes could sing,
they’d sing in rhymes

i can hardly breath,
it’s just too much to hold

and it’s where you want to be,
that’s weighing down

and the curiosity,
that’s draining low

under bad dreams, under all I see a wolf

if it’s who you want to meet, then say hello
but you always seem to be…
to be at home...
at home

you’ve got to know what’s reaching out,
under the darkness creeping south

and may the others take you now
only the gods can save you now
Track Name: why do we
quietly i ask to leave to no one else
just to myself
and i reply alone you leave
contemplate what was good for me
on the upside i'm who i am
on the down that's all i have

why do we
why do we ever..

consciously i made the bed in which i sleep
without a hand to comfort me
the room's too dark to feel at peace
i had what was meant to be

and then i slipped
the the dark crept in
towards the doorway away from him

time seems to pass you by
without a hint or sign
of what it could have been
if you had stayed with him

swiftly out of the blue
out by the wayside
over too soon
is this a recourse?
bow down too late
is this what i miss out on
whenever i wait

why do we..?
