Track Name: Will You Make Good Time
Lying in bed with you
I look at my own
little white wrist
and remember we're children

I've come to live with you
playing our days into
colorful sirens

I willed you to come
and someday you would
will you make good time
will you make good?

Lying in bed with you
I came alive
there's a stitch in my side
yeah, I think that I'm human

Scalp into skeleton
don't think I'd ever been
loved while I'm sleeping

I give you my blood
don't know if I should
will you make good time
will you make good?

Bridge:
Over and over
I called you to meet me
biting my tongue as the hours go creeping
velvet suit vagrant promised you would
again and again, oh, will you make good?

All that I wish for you
if I speak true
I wish for me, for you
do cause you love me and not
cause I told you to
or cause you should

will you make good time
will you make good?

Waiting all night for you as often I do
I do for me without you
do cause I love you and not
cause you want me to
or cause I should

will you make good time
will you make good?

will you make good time
will you make good?

will you make good time
will you make good?
Track Name: Nebulous Space
Something died in its sleep
knew when I woke up this morning
wish I could comfort you
tell you there was't any warning

Bones, they are always white,
how can you tell when they're sallow?
How can you know when they'll go
and they'll leave you a shadow?

Now I am left without form
not the shape you all know
I am a nebulous space
without hangers for my clothes

Something's been draining the color from my cheeks
something has drawn all the warmth from my sheets
wish I could tell you I didn't know that they'd go
where they'd go, where they'd go

I have been shivering warm in my bed
feeling my arms turn from cotton to lead
and back twenty times
as I wait to rise

To turn my back in spite of you
who failed to see the fire
as I choked in the hanging garden
of shoe laces and wires

I only ever asked you to be here
'fore I was blue, swollen tongued
and red 'round the ears

Something's left rotting and heavy
in every corner
here comes the swarm to devour
as the weather gets warmer
Track Name: Live With Me
I’ve got an ugly want for you
an ugly little dream
I’ve got a sugar-lip for you
a dirty red sunbeam
I’ll give you my seam ripper
you can rip me at the seams

Live with me, oh live with me
there are ugly little homes
with ugly families inside
ugly little towns
with ugly rivers running ‘longside
live with me
you gotta only wanna live with me

I got a honeycomb for you
with all the wax left in
I got this dirty river
I can mollify your sins
won’t get you into heaven
but it feels good on the skin

Live with me, come live with me
there are ugly little homes
that I can see myself inside
ugly little towns
where maybe baby you could come hide
live with me
you gotta tell me that you’ll live with me

I’ll build you bricks of sand and spit
and burn me in our fire pit
and I will keep you warm, oh every night
I’ll bite down on your lovely hands
we’ll sleep until we’re whole again
I’ll never say I’m sorry when we fight

Live with me, come live with me
there are ugly little homes
full of love and full of pride
ugly little towns
that keep on sinkin’ from the inside

live with me
you gotta tell me that you’ll live with me

live with me, come live with me
live with me
I know you’ll tell me that you’ll live with me
Track Name: Dirt & Nitrogen
Curl into the ground
become a seed
white and waxy
smooth as satin
eyes milk shut

You had a root
sent a filament into the silence
reached out for something
older than writing

The answer is dirt and nitrogen
vole bones, mica, calbovista
something soft to settle flesh from bone
to rub your vertebrae to round white stones

Curl into the ground
and fall apart with ease
turn into something
new and shooting up leaves

The answer is russet brown and rich
water, lichen, ancient violets
tastes of green make bright a quiet home
light and shadow furl and then unroll

Easier than breathing
than ever winning anything
shinier than bleeding
than crashing under silver waves

The answer is nowhere you've ever been
heightened, gliding,
bubbles rising
the answer is nowhere that you know
until it is your fingers and your toes

Curl into the ground
and drink the aching silence of the trees
whisper a question
dream, dream, dream
Track Name: All Unforgivable Things
Oh what knots I have made here
a tangle of trailing strings
and from the face of the mirror
what sin unforgivable sings

I cannot be loved the right way
I have loved you still to this day
of all unforgivable things

What a path I have made here
A machine of parts unused
and at the ledge, at the landing
We will all, save you, be bruised

I cannot be loved the right way
I have loved you still to this day
of all unforgivable things
of all unforgivable things

What a price I will pay
when the seeds I’ve sown break through
what’s to be reaped just below now
from the mines I’ve lain for you

I cannot be loved the right way
I have loved you still to this day
of all unforgivable things
of all unforgivable things


I cannot be loved the right way
I have loved you still to this day
of all unforgivable things
of all unforgivable things
of all unforgivable things
Track Name: Sparrows
Everything is ancient
even as a seed
when it comes from earth
it comes from me

Everything is rotting
even when it's green
that which grows will grow
and fall between
that which grows will grow
and fall between

We all sing of sparrows
'cause we're dust and small
we break the bones, eat the marrow
till we come up tall

I wove in shadows
Like the cotton
like the straw
Thunder will come in
wet the earth
and chill us all

Everything is ancient
even as a seed
when it comes from earth
it comes from me

when it comes from earth
it comes from me

when it comes from earth
it comes from me
Track Name: Red Skies
The sun rose behind my eyes
where there once was darkness
there were red skies blooming into sight
from the center of the new light
that you bore
nothing more

Close that window one time
the air is even softer on the inside
an etching of the blue night
left before
and I can’t ask
for anything more

In that moment I could not ask
for anything more
Would you want
anything more?

Would you want
anything more?

We grow gentle and unwise
Promises that bubbled
from the gut rise burning up
their half lives
cusp to core

And in that moment I could not ask
for anything more
Would you want
anything more?

Would you want
anything more?
Track Name: Homeland
Do you have a homeland?
Do you have a river?
tell me where your roots grew
Did you cut them out
did they choke you?

Tell me
do you love me
tell me
I don't want to know
don't tell me that you miss me
when I am silent and alone

Where can I lay my head?
There's an empty cavern
where there was a bed
where do I go to rest
with a flightless blackbird
in my chest?

Do you have a country?
Do you have any sort of plan?
tell me
were you sleeping
when the homes were razed
across your land

Are you left with something,
orphaned teeth piled in your hands?
Will you tend the flowers
from my body under sand?
