Blue Black Grey White Floor If you held me closer would you like me more? If you had me always would you take me home? I can’t wait for this to pass You’re so toughened up And you lie open mouthed

Low Tide 05:11
Knock through the door, eyes wide open in horror Make up the bed, go inside instead Your left hand circles right Just stay put! Don’t move! Be still! Hindsight: it’s a gift to stay Blood on your sleeve, side split knee Say it again, baffled, dirty and bland Your left leg circles right Just go now! Move fast! Be gone! Hindsight What if I lose you?

None to Come 04:15
Kick in the belly, is this the start? Am I carrying a want of that sort? I fall into your arms with a comfort so ingrained And impassioned, as it’s steady and undone I wanna hold you back and lick your pallet clean I wanna stand aback and claim the in-between Substitution Take the weight I am and hold it, my own And this is just for fun, are you having fun? This is just for fun, there is none to come Nothing passes And they’ll say “Nothing Surpasses This!” Flood me I wanna hold you back and lick your pallet clean I wanna make you want what I want me to be

PA Fog 02:15
Fog rolls over my eyes Fog rolls over the hood Rolling backwards to the soil Resting body, held and holding Faces backwards memory fluid Hand to mouth the words come slowly out Am I in here? I am mine alone

Instead I 03:58
Go downstairs Read a book Brush my hair Write this down Start again Hold my own Lay back down Pet the cat Clean the floor Feel ashamed Make the bed Check my phone Change my clothes Eat a snack Cut my nails Look outside Count my change Take a nap See a show Call a friend Play guitar Think out loud Wash my face
9.
Warm Void Thoughtless You’re foaming at the mouth And clawing at the door I don’t trust the things you say anymore I Fall Down I am here, I am mine, I am safe, I am fine, I am home, I am warm, I am loved, I am calm, so from here I might as well enjoy I’ve got a lot of wasted time That is wrapped around your throat So spit it out and let me look I wanna find a better one, a better me
