Murderer 02:20
loneliness is like a father i can talk to is like a sister in the night kissing strange goodbyes loneliness you got a bottle in a car park you got a picture on your dash and you smell so murderer loneliness a little money in the garden a little blue washcloth in the bathroom sink loneliness at least i got someone to talk to a mirror in the night giving strange advice murderer

Cross 03:22
when presented with a cake a proper protestant child will eat its dinner wordlessly he will throw up all the things he thought he had to swallow pale and weak and well brought up but don’t worry i promised myself to stay blurry and punish myself i was always taught to stay ahead of the masses to eat my bread with pepper grass and stay away from molasses i haven’t quite acquired a taste for candy and sweets i’ve tried to keep my ivory strong my lenses weak but don’t worry i promised myself to stay blurry and punish myself don’t worry i promised myself to stay blurry and punish myself don’t worry i promised jesus to pay for the porcelain when i throw it to pieces

galachiel stood on the bell tower lifted his face and closed his eyes he took his little brass pen from his breast pocked licked the tip and peered down he saw a hard grey crust with a fungus crutch that oozed blood and pus and smoke and then another and he couldn’t see clearly through the atmosphere he felt the terror eat his every pore and he saw many a thing like a gold ring like a jealousy fit from the pit that was drawn downstairs downstairs that was dreamed up by men with a plan a big plan a small big plan without words and galachiel spoke father father can you hear me i don’t know what i’m to do i can’t tell what i am feeling i broke my eyes my eyes are glue can you kill it with can you kill it with fire can you smite it down i kiss to make it better a flood to make it drown and start over father father please forgive me i don’t hold my neighbours dear i’ve been lurking ‘round the corner waiting for your ship to sail hey were you invited to the great unveiling they said he’ll bring his son i’ll bring my ticket and a book with my whole life story and a sermon to sing until his doubts are gone while your guilt eats you from the inside so you hide and you disguise your jealousy as neighbourly love well, tough cause i cannot believe it’s all made up by men fuck that there’s a plan he am well, he will kill you with fire he will smite you down he will throw you down down to the ground to a prison of your own design made from all the hears you still decide to break it’s a long and lonesome fall god have mercy on you all may it trickle down forever cause i won’t be on your side i can feel it in my bones and i feel it in my fingers and i hear the wings descending and i see it

there’s a creature called the morning that’s been whispering in my head about his enemy before him he shines a light that takes all colour from the night that seems last year i’m a ghost haunting your tower you left a sandwich on a plate you’re like a sister to me and a mother to the child we left to wail before the gate the child we left for dead while she cried for milk and cigarettes milk and cigarettes milk and cigarettes milk and cigarettes there’s a teacher called the yearning i know now that i was afraid well, that’s the tragedy of learning knowing one and one is two but when it’s three you’re much too late see me flee across the border i want the feeling to be gone but i still feel your softness on me a silver snake slithers over flat land milk and cigarette land milk and cigarettes milk and cigarettes milk and cigarettes

Snowflake 01:41
hey little snowflake would you like to melt on my tongue and be the milk around my cornflake the syrup on my pancake and the reason for a song and the reason for this

princesse des plumes c'était un conte de fée louis et le chat un homme de cords un homme de barbelé louis et le chat des cards étoiles se déplient la lune est orange et le vent murmure "embrasse moi" aisles sans fin gravier sous vos pieds louis et le chat champs d'achillée c'était un rêve, je crois je brûle

nothing will grow though I love you so and what's the wisest thing to do you'll tell me soon enough and what's the wisest thing to do you'll ask me soon enough

The Glass 04:21
did you think it was a good plan my little deep eyed dove to go digging there in the dark all that interest in my perception of my long term imperfections burns the roots feeds the beast in me and I feel the claws of insanity scrape the glass oh and i feel the walls giving in and the darkness break free from its shackles you’re so sweet to pay attention track my craters with your pinions and give a stir inside there, that’s right hear the clanging of the padlock come right in and wish the rocks dead and i’m telling you they’re here to stay and i feel the claws of despair gashing through my flesh oh and i feel the walls caving in and the darkness break free from its shackles i should probably not talk this way but i do

Open 02:52
the bone may be strained but the marrow remained coats still in pace with the waltz he's a cripple old man teeth silver eyes bloodshot the fear in his fingers to be young and dumb again gathering clouds gathering clouds higher and higher to the sun it's been cold since he reached for his gun now he shouldn't be messed with and my housey waits out on the open and my housey waits out on the open things that disappear will be back the next year she keeps her berries untouched and a V flies over brother, follow the arrow up north and with eyes wide open you can see what the center brought forth and we're better off dead but we couldn't be fussed with and my housey waits out on the open and my housey waits out on the open

when the summer broke off and the film revealed sandy steps on the cellophane a crepe paper love staining the fingers dripping with orange rain a black floundering moth longed for the magnitude of the astral plane a brown resin dove spilled a sweet poison onto the picture frame a poison of a thicker kind granted me a sicker mind last year I was a therapist today I was a wicker man it started out as a fine plan didn't it two slabs of concrete a street in the middle with ghosts boiling under the pavement ooh it started out as a fine plan didn't it and the mighty man of the sea without vision or reflection cast his salty sin down on me to bring forth the resurrection when a dance lit the flame we saw the old clock stop through the window pane a bitter refrain sang through the fading waves of the other name there lay the time entangled crisp in the packaging while you dug for a crooked angle right through the ship I built for you and the overcast shell breaks and the sky turns the ending was done long 'fore the title long 'fore the song was sung destruct at all cost filling a hope chest with all the hopes we lost hope lies in a deep dark well reflecting a shaky sun dive in to know me well see what you leave before you run your eyelids open I can smell autumn a little blue spark lights up the dark and the overcast shell breaks and the sky turns amber I like to break the thing I really like just to see what it does to me and I like to hurt the people I dearly love just to see what it doest to me why does it make me feel so good in my head while it makes me sad just to know I'm bad

Yes 05:30
it’s been a while since i felt light it’s been a while since i felt lightly but i’ve got the open road in sight and i intend to hug it tightly and i’m not scared to smear his blood on my face make no mistake i’m not prepared to burn my tongue in his place no i’m not prepared to let it fight me the golden leaves caress the copper sea they rightly do the wind the woods the inexplicity the dying bird they say the word autumn hearts and winter tires and crimson fires within and i know that the heavens are waiting for me to say yes iron eyes and silver wires protect us from the sin and i know that the heavens are waiting cause i have forgotten how easy it is to be mused and say yes shimmering into the past shining on into the future my hero died now time goes fast but i've got love to drag me through it and i’m not scared to suck the blood out myself make no mistake i’m not afraid autumn hearts and winter tires and crimson fires within and i know that the heavens are waiting for me to say yes iron eyes and silver wires protect us from the sin and i know that the heavens are waiting cause i have forgotten how easy it is to be mused

Lies 02:43
sleep tight little boy one last kiss on your head and remember that all that's inside it are lies don't be scared now little boy there's no monster under your bed no T-Rex in the closet or angry clowns on the chair they're all in your head cause Plato was wrong and all your thoughts all your plans all your dreams and all your friends they're all in your head and all that's inside it are lies
