Track Name: believe in love
babe you threw me out. when i couldnt say his name. i couldnt outrun the wolves but darlin thats okay, if you believe in love thats all i need. i felt it kind of a lot when you burned me down like a gas station infested with rats, but even so darlin, if you believe in love, thats all i need. i brought you a stone from my most precious peak. you asked where the hell am i gonna put this, it doesnt serve a function, but thats okay darlin if you believe in love thats all i need. oh oh oh
Track Name: where it starts
your name is a fucked up prayer i pray the night before a storm to keep it at bay. they smell you on me, and part like the red sea i swam. blood and other things. things like hibiscus. things like a red kiss. or thinking youre dead when you see through your eyelids. oh piercing song how you ring out, a burning blade of sound. it just messes me up. i dont know where it starts
Track Name: eden
the garden grows. you dont mean to water it. i dont wanna feel every kind of green, for a while at least. eden's just one tree. even when the sun hides away, the flowers grow on up. flowers are fucking dumb. grow some eyes and see shes not meant for me. not meant for me. no no no. the sweetest hum beyond a gate. i have a key, but not the light cast on where to put the key. but i have the key. yes, i have the key. no no no. yeah eden's just one tree
Track Name: him
but sometimes at night, as angels rest, you lie beside the aching memory of him. why wont he fade from you. you were stupid kids, with stupid things to prove. and even after all this time, his smile in your mind. i wont say to you, you lost your friend. you know exactly where he is. hes in the ground, right where you left him. and even after all this time, you think it could get right. right. oh oh oh, its like the years never happened
Track Name: ghost takes flight
cleanse this house tonight. beat back the shades i fight. i didnt say goodbye, the rain did, crushing all the light. didnt skin turn blue then find red, only to fall down white. i couldnt ask for lies. i got lucky you keep that box shut tight. and how could air feel this way, so having a weight, so having a taste, so having a memory i cant place. oh what was that for. why create such a face. why why why why. arch your back tonight, as the ghost takes flight. and how can air feel this way, so having a weight, so having a taste, so having a memory i cant place. oh what was that for. why create such a face. why why why why
Track Name: tinder
i dont want what you have to give, i'll never want what you have to give
Track Name: twitter
oh bony heart, oh crown of wings. its possible to want impossible things. its a popular thing, in these sharpened up days, to allude to a knife, or another kind of blade. like a mirror thats so good its inside you. oh bony heart, oh crown of wings, why dont you ever call back, off-brand or not. and who knew limbs could be so ill-defined. when i see your face i curse the satellites, folding earth and light. our sweat on the screen. fluorescent sea, you swim to me. like a madness thats so true, its outside you. oh inkless girl, oh irl. see if i ever back down, off-brand or not. and who knew limbs could be so ill-defined. when i see your face i curse the satellites, folding earth and light. oh bony heart, oh crown of wings. its possible to want impossible things
Track Name: dirt
dear, i drove the bones into the dirt. soon your soul will stir beneath the earth. all the spit and stone that i arranged, with the sacred song we used to play. oh im bringing you back all the way. surface and collapse into the mud. i will clear the moss out of your throat. dear, the crow can rave until the dawn. your eyes hold the blackness of a fawn. oh im bringing you back all the way
Track Name: darkening paper
you were right, all of this time so right, to take my light and wrap it up in your night. sing it a song, put it to sleep. the day is so long, and you are so, so sweet. if you said it, i didnt hear. and if you meant it, this rat turns to a bear. you know so many songs. its like you are made of songs. youre darkening paper to the last little edge. youre throwing down lightning, busting the bridge. and i still remember the night that we met, the very last moment that i didnt know you yet
Track Name: mirror
someday youll see your way through me, and understand that all this time, you were wrong about which one of us deserves a better love. maybe youll stay, even think its okay that i will try till i die, to be a mirror, a spark and a home. the one who loves you like its all hes ever done. maybe thatll be enough
Track Name: sing it as one
and the world wears on and on, even still, even with your saddest song. stopping time is easier i guess, staying still, going out less and less. in the dark, bowing to her dress. precious spark, how ive lost you in this mess. memory, betray me. tell me your millionth lie. those who stood beside me, scattered now and lost in the light. love is a distant choir. singing so true, but cant go higher. love is an aching tune. sing it as one when you cant sing as two. and the world seems far away. all thats passed in echo and decay. crowd around this photograph i found. how i wish to summon from the ground. what is this, a lovely fading sound. memory, leave me. what good is frozen time. unless you can break it open, strike it from my mind. love is a distant choir. singing so true, but cant go higher. love is an aching tune. sing it as one when you cant sing as two. your voice may break down, but what else will you do with them not around
