Track Name: King Porus
cloaked in the richness of wet fields
yours is a vital mind
maintain the way in which you steal
all the porous light

what serves you?
what comes to
help you go?

downfall to the time
with your bent head
with subservient signs
you open the gates for him instead
this was a vital time

oh, sulking god
oh, timid life
you are the tallest of all men
at the feet of kings

you have
all your really need.

can you tame
all the fire coming through me now
held
doused by the weight
of the same fields

made my home
at the feet of the same kings
shrouded there
where no light can fall in
Track Name: You \ Yours
keeping voids
tar soaked memories
heavy
tandem dreams
would you tie your body to me?
you can

pleasure seekers
you mime your full fledged comforts
passion leaders
caught blind
ought to swallow
you can

don't
you
fall

as the ether changes the lines
(so) i've made your body mine
unforgiving winding skin
carry
carry me on now
with you

we will wait
with all these lines
Track Name: Black Room Blues
breathless lover
can we stand in the ocean's tide?
pull me forward
contort all
just to move with you

I am worried
wide eyed
watch for the common ties
is your hidden body
made for mine at the end of time?

find me lover
two wet eyes
in a blue-black room

reaching forward
all for
you and the salted air

do you hear us?
Track Name: Gathering
all in offering
the cycle has begun
all too often
the tight wheel
is never spun

and we know
it loosens up a bit
with a little
loving spit

i've been around your door forever
waiting for you to call me in there
waiting for you to call me in
waiting for you
Track Name: Pickup Lines
oh, human urge
vile light surrounds you
you'll know no peace in the night

cracked into her
black hole astounding
we'll curse the light on your skin

weightless sensation
distorted mind
you'll have to wait
forever

i was there
by the windowpane
you had brought me there
i had got what i came for
Track Name: The New York Times
filled with the breeze
the ease of one hundred balking heads

tossed dust on the law
while you're winding your car
so naive in the night

how softly she sighed
her delicate mind saying
go
go
go

lay on the floor
resting your head
so cut from the source

typical things:
mocking the soft suburban martyr
so cautious and cured
donning unnecessary armor
open your jaw
swallow the pompous air of others
home for the night
tilting your cheek to a
loving mother

i don't really know but i really think i'll go from here
you don't really know but i really think we'll work it out
i don't really know but i really think it's all in vain
i don't don't really know but I really think i'll leave this place
i don't really know but i really think i'll go from here

its in our growth
our aging bodies
cut from the core
wrapped up in memory

take in the news
take off our clothes
take on each other
