Track Name: Curve of the Earth
Bring us your children, bring us their limbs. Bring us your children, bring us their tails.
Track Name: Never-Ending Nosebleed
Hollow out a home below the ground, the roots of this ancient forest. Form a shovel out of bone, tied with the flesh of your shaking fingers. Hollow out a home. Undress your secrets, lay yourself bare. Hollow out a home. Rid yourself of these ancient whispers. Endlessly, the waterfall flows from the pristine holy godskull. Hidden deep within the sky, white light radiates in infinite spirals. We drank from the river for days, until our bellies became swollen and full. You dug a small hole at my feet. We let the river flow.
Track Name: Dragon Song
Crawling through the mud, searching for a precious stone to adorn the blackened skies like diamond-encrusted dragon wings. And vengeance will be mine, I swear by the life that flows through me. Carrying the dagger between my teeth, drowning in the blood.
Track Name: The Thing Which Could Not Be Put Back
Black water in the basement, trash floating around. We've stayed in this house for far too long and now the sun's gone done. Floorboards rotten and sagging, wallpaper hanging from the wall. There is no recourse. There is no hope left here. Our bodies broken and small.
Track Name: Spraypaint
All alone in the spare room, and you've been gone for so long. You got in your big old pickup truck and you just drove off. Spraypaint in the closet, or the soft hissing of flames? Your love is a wildfire. Mine is the rain.
Track Name: Green Skies
I was born to die about a mile or so from here, in this little shitty town with its two bars and an old saw mill. And I will kill again. Just let me taste the summer's kiss carried on the wind. We sat and watched the sky turn from gray to green. We watched the clouds take on new forms, your eyes clear and crystalline. I buried you that night in the small wood near the mill. Singing, I was born to die, my love. I was born to kill.
Track Name: A Whisper Growing
Transform our bodies to beacons, transmitting our tired tones to the stars--the clattering code of tongues and teeth, a whisper growing. Maybe the mouth prefers its chewing, the lungs their simple air, but the tongue between them don't complain at all.
