Shifting 03:52
I could jump these fields in my seven-league boots Walk trails with shades and ghosts Blaze tracks in my devil's shoes Crawl invisibly across your roof. I could just about fit into every hole Where I wouldn't be seen I could melt into the trees And race their juices right out to their leaves In a dream I was transformed, Left my bones outside the door I could be furred or feathered or shelled or fleeced I could be any man or every beast, Rolling with the breeze. I could be a soothsayer, a spirit-raiser, I could take to the air, I could take to the sea, Without lungs or limbs to hold me here I'd be a keeper with every key. Everyday I'm shifting further from myself I feel the pull, I start to soar, my skin is shed Lay me down and I'll spiral through my head Everyday, I feel a little strange. Smoked a hole in my lungs and I've started to bleed Got boots and gloves made out of meat, And I can feel the water I can feel the water swill inside me.
Christina 03:15
Deep in my waking hours comes a force Whose violence breaks each bank I try to build there Her taste fills my mouth with clumsy words Sometimes I just want to cry when our precious seconds unwind Then I feel it begin to slide Her soul breathes life into these old bones Christina, Christina, Race me to the mountains where we can grow old I just don't know what to say, My words will cheapen what we create And I ignite in our embrace You steal all the darkness from my eyes So lay me down to sleep, let me chase down the safest dream Our love will always be the place that all my old ghosts cannot reach We are children sadly growing old, Thrown from places now turned cold With words as battered as their source Harness me to use their voice
Lazing 03:16
Cotton Dress 03:55
Sprawled out over the windfall of this the bloated browning month Apple bruises on my thighs and the flush from your yawning smile Fasten your teeth on my soul and we shall roll and flow for ever more You in your cotton dress, you in your innocence Life screams its fury from your eyes, all jaded and alive My feet are in the water waiting for the tide to come The whisper in the corner does its best to make me numb My ear to your cage, your pulse in my hand Eyeing up the child, fingering the dead, Swallowing your flow, your teeth on my neck, Coil me full of hate and bend me out of shape Death is just down the hallway When I fall I hear him ask How many rooms have you entered? How many rooms have you passed? How much darker does it get?
Sing a song of wisdom for summer's children And their bodies broken and their hands clutching stars Cradle summer's fallen in the arms that you once bore them And the sea comes crawling to lick their wounds And summer is nearly over and we are not yet safe We could hide away, find peace in some shaded place Because the sun seems too strong And the rain, of course, she washes everything away Into the sea into it's belly where summer's children play Come down with me now to where summer missed in its rage Come down I want you to fathom the deeper me As the songs of summer went down in numbers And the moments lost their speed I felt a shiver, I heard some golden whisper That seemed to call after me Come down with me now to where summer missed in its rage Come down I want you to fathom the deeper me Follow me down, follow me down, follow me down to summer's graves Come down with me now I will show you tragic things
