Track Name: wanderer's song
even if you try
you'll never see it all
best to take your time
get to know a smaller piece
than shallowly skim the edge
of a surface that you'll never know
Track Name: sick and tired
Do you ever hate the sound of your own voice?
Do you ever get sick and tired of your own face?
You're not alone
You're not alone.
Track Name: chains
how nice it would be to escape my bleak mind
open up my skull and leak everywhere
I could melt into the pavement, the manhole, and the street
I could dust over everything if I wasn't chained to me
Track Name: hollow bones
inside her hollow bones she keeps
a finger on her spine
breath on her neck
a hug from behind

inside her hollow bones she keeps
her dusty jewels and gold
her faded photographs
her scariest of ghosts

inside her hollow bones she builds
a temple and a shrine
a city and a river
a place to rest her eyes
Track Name: train wreck
if this train derails
maybe they'll never know
how I held your head in my lap

newspapers won't comment on
the softness of your body
while you sleep

Maybe they won't talk about
how you'd drop your hand
from the top berth
and I held it, squeezed it
to let you know you aren't alone

But these actions send ripples
and if this train derails
our love will dissipate
and settle like a dust
into the trees and the sidewalks
and the fields
to be picked up, picked up, picked up.
Track Name: queen of the forest
I used to grab the bull by the horns
now I'm the bull
being jostled around by things
that are outta my control

I once was the queen of the forest
now there are things that are hunting me
I'm not used
used to this
this paradigm shift
