Track Name: Oscillate
We oscillate between the pain
Of being and not
Of being and not
We oscillate between the pain
Of being and not
Of lightness and weight

I am a sand dune singing
A thousand grains of ocean
Vibrating in a discord
Of hope and despair
Calling you back to your dusty home
To suck all the moisture
From your weeping bones

And the dull days drum
And the dull days drum

My sadness used to sparkle
Now it drums a dull ache
Muffled cries from gristle
That bakes in cosmic rays
That perforate a skinny membrane
In pulsating rhythms of desire
Now aftershocked, a low hum

That makes the dull days drum
And the dull days drum

(They're calling you)
To oscillate between the pain
Of being and not
Of being and not
We oscillate between the pain
Of being and not
Of lightness and weight
Track Name: Black Swell
I built barriers of bone
I built dams of hope
I tarped my skin to sails
The flood gates will not hold
The seagrass quivers
The wind starts to rise
I am waiting for the squall

When the black swell
Carries me high
I can see it on your face
Tonight

I don't want to be caught by the river
I don't want to be caught by the sea
I don't want to be caught by your rivers
I don't want to be caught by your seas
