Track Name: Huzn
Grief, grief don't let me go
Wires, wires don't let me go
Death, death don't let me go
Track Name: Halocline
Anchored to my bones
Beneath a river of blood
Iron symbols heavy
churned up mud
A dazzling ochre silt
Rough hewn and light
Enveloped and bind
Beneath a canopy of sighs
And I'm chained...

Shrouded web of arteries
Both painful and mine
The borderline between two tides
I find both riverbed and sky
I feel my muscles wasting
Snakeskin and insect wings
I feel my body shedding all the
Joy you bring
And I'm chained
to the blood of a siren
Chained to the blood of a weight
Your words as hard as iron
Dragged beneath my waves
And I'm chained...
Track Name: Who Killed CockRobin
Who killed cockrobin
Who killed cockrobin
I said said his mother
When I drove him to the gutter
I oh it was I
Who killed cockrobin
Who killed cockrobin
I said his lover with
A thousand jilted sorrows
I oh it was I
Who killed cockrobin
Who killed cockrobin
I said the dealer
With a thousand dirty needles
I oh it was I
Who killed cockrobin
Who killed cockrobin
I said the client
When he would not be compliant
I oh it was I
Who will remember?
Who will remember?
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: Chastity
Don't leave me unsheathed
Don't leave me hanging
In the breeze
I'll take control I'll take you whole
With no ending or release
My body may be chained
But desire knows no restraint
I'll take all pleasure from you
And lock it all away

Chastity
You bring out the ghost in me
I feel my flesh
In slivers leaving

I'll leave you unclean
I'll leave you gagging in the sheets
I won't function for your punctum
I won't be your final scene
No money shot you're out of luck
You will not appeased

Chastity
You bring out the ghost in me
I feel my flesh
In slivers leaving
Track Name: Averse
I am not averse to giving birth to myself
I am not averse to giving birth to myself
If the universe wants to
It will give me health
If the universe wants to
It will give me hell
At the university they said they could help
But I am not a verse
I am a chorus
A territory of parts
I am not a verse I am a chorus
To terrorise your heart
I am not averse to giving birth to myself
You could do a lot worse than
Giving birth to yourself
Track Name: Don't Let Me Rest
The furious pounding
Of flesh on flesh
The furious pounding
Of flesh on flesh
Don't let me rest
Don't let me rest

The curious compounding
Of breath on breath
I tasted your death
I tasted your death

The echoes of you in my bones
Are all I have left
Fuck me til I chime
Beat against my skin
You're the only one
Who can make my skeleton ring

I feel the pumping of your veins
You've got a dick that could raise me
From the grave
You've got a dick that could raise me
From the grave

The furious pounding
Of flesh on flesh
The furious pounding
Of flesh on flesh
Don't let me rest
Don't let me rest
Track Name: Complacency
Complicit in your complacency

The burden of choice weighs heavy on me

Complicit in your complacency

Death is no longer behind me

Complicit in your complacency

There's no lighthouse
There's no marker
There's no line between the sea and shore
There's no father
There's no answer
There's no life beyond the one you see before you
Track Name: Ecstasy
I'd love to tell you I hated
The encompassing dark
To tell you I hated
Your heart
But it's not bad luck
It's not a curse
It's just the ecstasy
Of making things worse
Track Name: Continents of Lichen
When the continents of lichen
Spread across your skin
When the warm rot of morning
sets in
When the lava fields crack
And the black sand beaches burn
You will lay all your hope
In a grave of ferns

Let the cold dim light
Of dawn shine on
Let the cold dim light
Of dawn shine on

When all diamond turns to soil
And your bones return to oil
And nothing we have built
Will outlast this mortal coil
When the sky cracks at the seams
And the stars come down in reams
You will see all your days
In fatherless dreams

Let the cold dim light
Of dawn shine on
Let the cold dim light
Of dawn shine on

Will you finally be at peace
Will you let go of your grief
When all past and future lovers
Have met their sweet release
When the birds reclaim the sky
And the fish crawl back to shore
I will meet your ghost
In the pale shroud of dawn

Let the cold dim light
Of dawn shine on
Let the cold dim light
Of dawn shine on
