Track Name: Water
Got to disappear in some great void of water
Want to be arrested by the sound
Under sheets of metal
Underneath it all
I am nothing,
I am but a shape

Galleries of water
Underneath the length of her
Doesn’t matter what I say, she will always be here

Put the pieces in there, watch them disappear
Worthless to be able, it is lost in the sound
Extricate the battle by just saying nothing
Got to be more careful of this Hell

Galleries of water
Underneath the length of her
Doesn’t matter what I say, she will always be here
She won’t go away
Track Name: Bedroom Wall
I be the shame you see
I’ll shut the door behind me
The shallows of the Sea are rising up to greet Thee

Humbleness and All on the bedroom wall
Won’t be saving this one
Not at all

You bring those things you brought
I put them in their box where all those things must go
You’ll never know

She speaks of Sun all up in our hair
We close our eyes but we can’t get there
Open up, put it down
Don’t get up, don’t give up
Track Name: Yowler
My heart is a part of me but she lies
I’m shining sea to sea but it’s not right
You’ll lose me in the trees but I’m Alive

Your hands look just like mine and
Your voice went into my spine when I was just a gleam in your eye

There were ghosts in the sidewalk that night
But the fear of them was absent with you by my side

Your hands are just like mine and
Your voice went into my spine when I was just a gleam in your eye

And you can lead me to the water but you cannot make me drink
But you will not be avoided because your ghost is haunting me
You made me in the Spring time but my body met the cold
You were crying in the corner and that fear is all I know
Track Name: Holidays
Someday the river will find me; solid walls of water
And I’ll gestate in white under layers of ice
In the first of the year I was born
Almond-colored and warm
Under blue waves and what little good it’s done

So if I return my body to the running black
Dark and cool and sudden
Will it be me?
Will I see me?

And at Holidays I remember they asked me how I was
And at Holidays I will wonder ‘How much longer?’
Track Name: 7 Towers
Put the hurt on me, gave you everything
Never one to freeze over and be wondering
Several followers at the bottom of a rock-salted ledge
Far from my Self

It’s all you wanted
And the power is fallen from seven towers
Rise up and falter again

Cover up this one, should be Honored
From the sight of blood; should be higher up than
Now the Summer falls, loving water runs into dirtied streets of saddened offerings

It’s all you wanted
The power is fallen from seven towers
Rise up and falter again
Track Name: Belle
Little one, the summer sun is almost gone
Don’t be caught in the dark with the one who has taken your soul
Little bell pealing out at the magic of the day,
Don’t be taken away
I need you to stay

The sunset in Autumn in the back of your car
The wondrous falling of a star, far
But close in the shadow of the garden at night
I want to come with you, I will try

Perfect light on my bed won’t you put me down instead
Steady rain is coming soon,
Won’t be long til you’re gone

The sunset in August in the back of your car
The wondrous falling of a star, far
But close in the shadow of the garden at night
I want to come with you, I will try
Track Name: In The Bathroom
Alone in the bathroom, filled with love
For fluorescent lights and the dull edges of a knife
To be so full and surrounded by breathing bodies

But only holding one’s mind
Having one mind
And it’s not offering anything, no help of any kind

Sliding doors signal something:
The end of a Song; the end of outpouring
And into the smile for forever

Don’t put your hand in my vision
I cannot bear the weight
And I am in the bathroom and I
Am already done for for the next few days
Track Name: The Offer
The shadow, my shadow I can’t see
Still figure suspended behind me
The spirits and shapes they make
I’ve never grown to hold their face in the dark

So the offer I make
Is a promise to stay here
Though my wounds do grow
May I hold onto this hope

Their dark heads will quiet in my sight
Hands will stay from me this night if I only close my eyes
To the ones outside of my sight

The offer I make
Is a promise to stay here
If I only close my eyes to the ones outside of my sight
And give honor to what I can’t know
They will walk with me where I go
But be still behind their shroud
May they never speak out loud

So the offer I make
Is a promise to stay here
May they leave me out their wandering
And be still
