1.
Your elbow to my ribs, the terrifying heat It’s all consuming me And it’s happened twice before the blossoming of spring It’s disappointing me But it’s not hard to decide Under the pressure the body it slows An understood look, and your eyelid slips But it’s not hard to decide My ego’s caught a flame in thinking it’s unique To see it underneath But it’s not hard to decide
2.
02:48
Genes don’t resist, there’s no free will To hold up a truth of your own Crossing the line with consistence To falsify patterns of love Distance rots our collective thoughts But I have to wake every morning With some bit of fractured self-love And I am not weak, sentimental is how he would describe it best Distance rots our collective thoughts And I’m not sure you’re sorry, but neither am I Blood
3.
03:16
When do you give up? When do you talk back? When do the flames engulf a house of brick? Who pays And it’ll repeat (Come again?) And it’ll repeat (Come again?) Till it Who pays And they will bleed you dry And colonize your mind The deaf at heart won’t feel obliteration, fear When will you give up?
4.
01:17
Leah come home to raise your baby With love and respect, to love and resist
5.
02:26
I keep the line taut in all directions I just want to love full, unbounded on our time And you talk and beg Let’s just get right to the point where I’m a disappointment And is no woman untouched by the chorus of our expectations? And you talk and beg I know I’m not strong enough to be a mother
6.
02:59
Is this reference point too strong? When I’m not feeling well I’m finding there’s nothing unique left to say But the cold breeze against my back- You always make me wait for you The feeling of content alludes I’m restless (push back) And all I want to do is sleep (push back) You always make me wait for you The feeling of content alludes And you fear that I’m restless (honey, wait)
7.
03:33
Your sullen days Are my embrace You kiss my neck Inflamed, pious, lust, affection, misdirection, self-pity, self-worth, transferred desire, haze overflowing Logic Sadness You If this gets any louder I won’t get out of bed
8.
Hold my heart down Pull the curtain wide Quiet mourning light Hold my fevered brow Pull the curtain wide Quiet mourning light Lost in caustic time Quiet mourning light
9.
I’ll be the castaway And then, you’ll be my shore Steady ground counts for even more Your seething undertow exposed I can’t ignore Pulled in your gulf down, even more And it’s a hard way to go down You’ll be the castaway And I, am my own shore Even just a day I will implore Wake up, cool down, again it is My cyclic heart Proving that it can hurt even more And it’s a hard way to go down
10.
My right side will sink into his whole incline An unarticulated friendship’s hard to find Am I sold to convolute the obvious? A modern ideal? I don’t speak for both of us Will you be here in harder times? Will you be true regardless? Passing on the hearts and heals of hard-earned trust? Or freedom from the will we’ve drawn to play our part? And she asks me how one love, one love, one love I will be here in harder times I will be true regardless I love you, with death do part I love you, regardless
