Track Name: Blood Finds No Sea
BE QUIET SO WE CAN SLIP AUTOMATICALLY
PENCILLED TO THE SHAPES IN THE SHADE
OH WE SHAKE OUR NAMES
AND FREEZE IN SKETCH
ON A SKY OVER
AND OVERCOME
BY A GULF OF RESPIRATION
GUILELESS AS A LAKE
WE BURN
INJURE/ENDURE
AN ENTRANCE INTO HEAVEN
ULULATING IN THE JOKE OF RETURN

YOUR FACE ON ME WILL BE REMEMBERED
AS TREES
TO THE WIND SWORN IN FROM THE SEA

AND WE CAN'T STAND UP AND BE COUNTED

IN THE NIGHT I DREAM WE FILE

OUR NAILS DOWN TO UNLOCK US
NOT LOOK LIKE TEETH
YOU KNOW YOU CANNOT
IMAGINE THE MOUTH
THE KISSER WITHOUT
IVORIES
SHUT IN SHUT INSIDE

WHAT DID LOVE MEAN
WHAT DID LOVE NEED
WHAT A LOVELY

WHAT A LOVELY SCAB OF EARTH THIS MUST BE

BLOOD FINDS NO SEA
Track Name: Sister
WHISPER YOUR SISTER
FACELESS
TURNING BLISTERS
THIS PARADE ITSELF
HAS A WHITE WIND OF LISTLESSNESS

I AM MISSING A GRAVE
I AM MISSING A GRAVE

A MESSY CURVE OF SKIN
MISSING THE LINK FROM WITHIN
A MESSY CURVE OF SKIN
MISSING THE LINK FROM WITHIN
IN

NOW GO
GO BEYOND THE VEIL
GO BEYOND THE VEIL
GO BEYOND THE GRAIL

LISTEN
THIS MORNING MY NAME MEANT NOTHING TO ME
MY HEART PULLED THIS THING FROM ME
MY GOD FROM ITS HINGE
SAW ME
AND COULD IT BE

WE ARE APART IN A PART OF A PERSISTING SEA
WE HAVE A CURVE IN THE EARTH WITHIN AN ENDLESS WEAVE
I MUST TELL HER WE ARE
SHE IS
WITHIN WITH ME
I WILL
AT ONCE
LET THE BIRD FLY AWAY

SISTER I MUST TELL YOU
THAT IT WILL END IN EASE
WE WILL BUILD OUR HEARTS AGAINST THE SEA
WE WILL CAREFULLY REPEAT THE LINKS
AND LET IT BE

BECOME EACH OTHER
SOMEHOW
WE ARE SLAVES
WE WERE MISSING FOR DAYS

A MESSY CURVE OF SKIN
MISSING THE LINK FROM WITHIN
A MESSY CURVE OF SKIN
MISSING THE LINK FROM WITHIN
IN

WHISPER YOUR SISTERS
FACELESS
TURNING BLISTERS
THIS MELANCHOLY HAS A WHITE WIND OF LISTLESSNESS

WHISPER YOUR SISTERS
FACELESS
TURNING BLISTERS
THIS MELANCHOLY IS JUST A WHITE WIND OF LISTLESSNESS
Track Name: Sallow

SALLOW

DO THIS FOR NO ONE
DO THIS FOR NO ONE
NO NO ONE
DO THIS FOR NO ONE
NO ONE
DO THIS FOR NO ONE
NO

TELL ME THE STORY
OF OUR LIVES
GET IT IN MY EYES
FLUORESCENT SKY
WHEN I SIT WITH SOMEONE
WHEN I RUN
INTO THE WALL OF MY OWN HEART

I'M STUCK IN THE MIDDLE
MAN
I'M STUCK IN
I'M STUCK IN THE MIDDLE
MAN
STUCK IN
IN THE MIDDLE
MAN
I'M STUCK IN
IN THE MIDDLE
MAN

HERE IS A SCENE OF AN ADVENTURE
THE PICTURE ON THE BOX
DRAWN FROM A TELESCOPE
AND THE MOON IS IN ON THE JOKE
MOVING AROUND IN VAPOR BOATS
WITH A SALLOW HALO

TONIGHT THE MOON CHOSE NO ONE
TONIGHT THE MOON
IT TURNED FOR NO ONE
NO NO ONE
TO TURN FOR NO ONE
IS TO DO THIS FOR NO ONE
NO

I'M STUCK IN THE MIDDLE
MAN
I'M STUCK IN
I'M STUCK IN THE MIDDLE
MAN
I'M STUCK IN
IN THE MIDDLE
MAN
I'M STUCK IN
I'M STUCK IN THE MIDLE
MAN
Track Name: Vaulting Inviolate
WOMB-LIKE
CARRIAGE
CANNOT FLOAT
THE FEMALES ARE LEGO SARDINES
SILK
SLIME
HAIR IN A GLASS BOWL

AND THIS THE FRUIT AND FORTUNE IGNORED
THE POOR POOR FIGURINE THAT FELL
THE GIRL GOT OLD
THE MORNING STUCK
NO MORE
NO MORE NO MORE
NO MORE

WILL YOU CRAVE US
POOR FIGURINE
I FELL IN FRONT BUT DO NOT KNOW
WHAT TEXT TO CITE
TEXT TO TRUST
TEXT TO CITE
TEXT TO CARRY

RINGING
BEHIND A GATE
A FACE IN A BLIZZARD
VAULTING INVIOLATE

RINGING
BEHIND A GATE
A FACE IN A BLIZZARD
VAULTING INVIOLATE

FOOD AND FORTUNE ASIDE
THE DRESSINGS VIVIDLY DESCRIBED
HOW IT PUT ITS SIDE
AGAINST THE FLESH
KNOCKED ABOUT
DIVIDED
DESCENDED
TALLIED

BRIGHT COLD THE BURNING
I FEEL IT TURNING THE SUN
BUT IGNORING THE ONE WITH THE ACCESS TO LOVE
EXTRACTING THE JUICE FROM THE STALKS OF THE SOMA

CURA SERV
THE TWISTING OF FAMILIAR THEMES
NEW SHAPES HONORING
REVEALING CENTRAL FLAWS
STRIKING DREAMS
TROUBLING MOODS
AND THE BULK OF THEIR SOURCES

RINGING
BEHIND A GATE
A FACE IN A BLIZZARD
VAULTING INVIOLATE

RINGING
BEHIND A GATE
A FACE IN A BLIZZARD
VAULTING INVIOLATE

TINY BREAST FED FIGURINES SINGING
IN A BLIZZARD
VAULTING INVIOLATE
Track Name: Herds
WHAT WERE THOSE GUNS YOU HEARD
WHAT WERE THOSE GUNS YOU HEARD

DETACHING FROM THE SKIN IN HERDS
DETACHING FROM THE SKIN IN HER

THE SKIN IN PRISM ROSE LIKE BIRDS

WHAT WERE THOSE GUNS YOU HEARD

I FEEL YOU WATCHING HER
I FEEL YOU WATCHING HER

TOUCH TOUCH
SATISFY
TOUCH TOUCH TOUCH
SATISFY

WANT WANT FOR THE EYES
WANT WANT WANT FOR THE EYES

WANT SOMETHING WHITE AND PRIVATE
FOR THE EYES
WANT SOMETHING WHITE AND PRIVATE
FOR THE EYES

DIED DIED IN THE THE CHAIR
THE CHAIR HAS DIED ON THE FLOOR
THE FLOOR THE FLOOR
THE FLOOR HAS DIED IN THE ROOM
THE ROOM THE ROOM
THE ROOM HAS DIED BEHIND A DOOR
Track Name: Poolside
BLACK PARROTS
WINGS CHOPPED
LEFT IN A ROOM I MAY HAVE LEFT TOO SOON

MIDWIFE MILK MUSCLES ACROSS THE MOON
AND MY DARLING
WHO'S THERE
IN A STARTLING POSE

BY THE POOLSIDE

YELLOW MONKEYS
INSIDE YOUR EYES
DEPICT SURPRISE
AND I'M SO AWFULLY APART
SO AWFULLY SELF PRESERVED

DON'T YOU TOO WISH
WE COULD SWIM ACROSS THE MOON
AS THOUGH FLYING
TO PARADISE
DENIAL
TO PARADISE

TO PARADISE

DON'T LET ME LAUGH AT ANYONE ANYMORE
WATER IN MY MOUTH
AT THE VERY LEAST
BLOOD IN MY SHOE
UP AT YOU BY THE POOLSIDE

BY THE POOLSIDE
Track Name: Coconoir
STILL UNDER THE RUSH FOIL
BLANCHED AGAINST THE PITCH BLACK
THE COCONOIR
WE ARE LEGS APART
AND THE SPACE BETWEEN THE TWO
THE JAR OF NIGHT NOW OPEN TO US ALL
BUT MOST OF ALL
MOST OF ALL
I CAN HEAR WHO CALLS
AND THE MAUDLIN CALLS
AND EYES BEND
TO PLACES IN MY HEAD
A SPACE SO FAR

AND THE NEIGHBORS STICK THEIR HEADS OUT
LIKE HEADLIGHTS
LIKE FAT INTO THE DARK
GOATS AT LARGE
UNDER COUGH COLOURED STARS

AND I WANT TO THROW YOU
SO GO OUTSIDE
I THOUGHT I KNEW WHAT YOU WERE LIKE
AND WHAT YOU SAW
WHAT YOU THOUGHT YOU SAW

STILL UNDER THE RUSH FOIL
BLANCHED AGAINST THE PITCH BLACK
A SPACE SO FAR
WE ARE LEGS APART
UNDER COUGH COLOURED STARS
THE JAR OF NIGHT NOW OPEN TO US ALL
BUT MOST OF ALL
MOST OF ALL
I CAN HEAR YOU CALL
AND THE MAUDLIN CALLS
AND EYES BEND
TO PLACES IN MY HEAD
A SPACE SO FAR
Track Name: Fishing Pose
I'M STILL HERE
KNEE DEEP IN A FISHING POSE
WITH THE FILING REEDS
WITHIN THE STORKLESS RIVER
WITH THE MUD IN THE NIGHT
HOW ENTIRELY AQUATIC DO WE NEED TO BE
KNEE DEEP
KNEELING

I'M ONLY LEARNING
OF THE

VULTURES IN THE WATCH OF SKY
THE SEPARATE TORTURE OF EACH EYE
YOU THINK I DON'T KNOW YOU TOOK A FACE FROM ME
YOU TOLD HER I'VE BEEN HOLY
DANGEROUS
HAVE BEEN WEIGHTLESS WHEN I RUSH
I COULD DIVIDE MYSELF THROUGH US

BLOOD IS TO A BODY
IS TO A CARCASS
SOMA
SEROSA
A WASH AWAY
WASH AWAY
THE MARBLE SCREAM
THE WHISPERED FLUID
I'VE SWALLOWED A HORSE
I CANNOT HIDE
MOUTHING PARACHUTES
SPLITTING INSIDE

LIGHTNING STRIKE THE MOUTHS THAT CLOTHE US
GRANT US AIR WHEN LIGHT CANNOT FEED

I'M STILL HERE
KNEE DEEP IN A FISHING POSE
WITH THE FILING REEDS
WITHIN THE STORKLESS RIVER
WITH THE MUD IN THE NIGHT
HOW ENTIRELY AQUATIC DO WE NEED TO BE
KNEE DEEP
KNEELING

I'M ONLY LEARNING
OF THE

VULTURES IN THE WATCH OF SKY
THE SEPARATE TORTURE OF EACH EYE
YOU THINK I DON'T KNOW YOU TOOK A FACE FROM ME
YOU TOLD HER I'VE BEEN HOLY
DANGEROUS
YOU SAY YOU'RE WASHING FEET FOR US
IS THAT WHERE THE MIND AND METTLE RUST

BLOOD IS TO A BODY
IS TO A CARCASS
CAST NAKED APON THE NAKED EARTH ALL SCARF SKIN AND LOBES
SOMA
SEROSA
A WASH AWAY
WASH AWAY
THE MARBLE SCREAM
THE WHISPERED FLUID
I'VE SWALLOWED A HORSE
I CANNOT HIDE
MOUTHING PARACHUTES
IN A HOUSE FIRE WITH EYES

LIGHTNING STRIKE THE MOUTHS THAT CLOTHE US
GRANT US AIR WHEN LIGHT CANNOT FEED
Track Name: Familiar
AT A SIGNAL YOU WILL LOVE HER
CONTROL
WATCHERS WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO INTRUDE
WE ARE ARRANGED FROM THE INSIDE

AND WE ASSUME

THE INSPIRATION TO TRY
GIVE THEM PEACE, FEAR

WHAT BLENDED DIMENSION WAS HERE
I AM FAMILIAR

CONTROL

YOUR SOUL

I AM FAMILIAR
I AM FAMILIAR

AT A SIGNAL THERE IS BEGINNING
CONTROL
I AM OPENING
OPENING OPENED
AND OPEN
THE COLOR HERE
IF WHITE WERE BLUE

ONEDAY HE WILL TELL ME ABOUT A DREAM
IN WHERE HE
WILL GO DOWN DEEP STEPS
TOWARDS A FACE
THAT FOLLOWiNG
WHAT BLENDED DIMENSION WAS HERE

I AM A STENCIL

YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A STENCIL

WHAT AM I WAITING FOR
WHAT AM I WAITING FOR

WHAT AM I DOING

WHAT AM I WAITING FOR

WAITING
WAITING
WAITING FOR

AM I WAITING FOR
Track Name: Oyster
WHAT IS THE TEMPERATURE OF THE CURVE
THE CAGE OF WATER IN A SCULPTED PEARL
SO I CAN FIND THE BLOODIEST VEIN OF THEM ALL

AND YOU MOVE ME
MY BODY IS RELIEVED OF HAIR
FRACTURED FEMALE
ALIENS CONNECT IN HERE
RESURRECT THE OCEAN FROM MY COVERED EAR
CLASSICAL AND RAW

OYSTER
REINVENTING
POWER
CIRCUITS BENDING
PRAYER BOUND
BURNING FROM THE INSIDE OUT
OUT

REACH THE
THE RIVER'S CROTCH
OYSTER TO THE RIVER'S MOUTH
THE PITCH OF CIRCUS WATER BOMBS THE GROUND
WAKING US UP

AND WHOEVER GROWS OLD FIRST
WHOEVER GROWS OLD FIRST
HOLD YOUR BODY LKE A TORCH
UP TO THE INVISIBLE KING

WHAT IS THE TEMPERATURE OF THE CURVE
THE RAPID RED INSIDE THE LAP OF EARTH
SO I CAN FIND THE BLOODIEST VEIN OF THEM ALL

REACH THE
THE RIVER'S CROTCH
OYSTER TO THE RIVER'S MOUTH
THE PITCH OF CIRCUS WATER BOMBS THE GROUND
WAKING US UP

THIS FEELS LIKE MY FLESH HERE
THIS FEELS LIKE MY FLESH HERE
THIS FEELS LIKE MY FLESH HERE

HERE
