Track Name: Nobody Dies
Nobody Dies

I keep seeing your face
quivering at the point
just before the
surface is broken

time is an ocean
and you get squeamish
of all the creatures
you may have woken

I want to lay out in the sun some more
splayed out with our arms entwined
with no where to be
with nothing in mind

he wants to live inside a picture frame
captured forever in a perfect light
where nobody moves
and nobody dies

time moves in great waves
sometimes overlaps
we watch the real things
in a surface-y trance

no one else here to
witness your starfish dance
or our sand angels
as they wash away in the dark

I want to lay out in the sun some more
splayed out with our arms entwined
holding our thoughts
out of our minds

he wants to live inside a picture frame
captured forever in a perfect light
where nobody moves
and nobody dies
Track Name: Blue Arc
Blue Arc

dark stuff
the matter of heart
dissolving in the light

moot point
all that we’re left with is
our appetite

red plate
a porcelain bull
you may feel nauseous
as we travel the parabola
like microwaves from exotic locales
transmitting data
feeding

the bluest arc
its total control
to be the whole of the part
and a part of the whole

now lets go outside
and lay on the grass
and sip at the sunlight
through imaginary glass

fade in
he lies there open as a memory
bleeds out
running freely as a reverie

soft wall
a matter of heart
fortifications
and an arrow from a rampart
strays into
sea anemone territory
and its o.k because we’re guided by

the bluest arc
its total control
to be the whole of the part
and a part of the whole

now lets go outside
and lay on the grass
and sip at the sunlight
through imaginary glass

to choke on a pearl,
how very baroque
to go with a flourish
as they’re running amok

remind
to remain in a mind
how the fruit filled your mouth
how you left me the rind
Track Name: Ammonite
Ammonite

I press my broken ear
full of the scum of sound
to the chest of the common ancestor
to the heart of the heartless-land

hearing everything
in the oldest night
he crackles in the static
he fades into the light

in the wake of thunder
in the shadow of a dream
I am crawling towards him
slowly upstream
and we’re lit by lightning
on a luminous beach
as he darkly whispers
‘I’m within your reach’

white song sung sore in a thrown voice
swells up in the shell of a man
whose heart by rote learns every note
whose fossilized ammonite ears divine their right

his body mollusk-like
in a violent sleep
encrusted in her echoes
awaits his slow release

in the wake of thunder
in the shadow of a dream,
she is crawling towards him
slowly upstream
and they’re lit by lightning
on a luminous beach
as she darkly whispers
‘i’m within your reach’
Track Name: Coals
Coals

He’s hot footed it over
hope’s scorching coals
he’s known hope that runs true
as the rivers’ blue soul

and to crack like a husk
and get squirreled away
to talk off hind legs
and have nothing to say

I see it in the rim of their eyes
I hear it in the call of dead
I see it in the sunlight in your eyes
and i hear it in the things that you say

she could smell him burning
but couldn’t find a flame
he squeaked into the embers
she went back the way she came

across the plains of poppies
and through the limestone caves
between the bramble thickets
and over unmarked graves

I see it in the rim of her eyes
I hear it in the call of the dead
I see it in the sunlight in your eyes
i hear it in the things that you said

i hear it in the call of the damned
its twirling in the dance of the dead
it plays in the sunlight in your eyes
and in the things that you said
Track Name: Another Sky
Another Sky

words fall short
a bruise appears
slack drawn up
by other disciplines

faithful leap to bridge the gap
close my eyes and just like that

and I am drawn
I am drawn up to a height
and I am high
I am part of another sky
and I am drawn
I am drawn into your light
I can leave
any time

deep well welling
up with noise
abstract and
articulate

I can hear it in the void
I can hear it in your voice

and I am drawn
I am drawn up to a height
and I am high
I am part of another sky
and I am drawn
I am drawn into your light
I can leave
any time
