Track Name: Earth Underfoot
I am a swimmer
beside you
a wanderer
in spite of you
the devil in heaven making up for lost time
it’s not so foreign now
the fringes is where
we hang our decorations
even now
earth underfoot
yes that was me
on the receiver
static-ing in silence
still no one believes me
Track Name: Gently
wide awake from a dream
cut from the scene and threaded gently
and all at once
she comes to me
we don’t know our own strength
and sometimes we break things
gently
a beautiful fix
still, never the same
is this all that there is
to know
to melt with the snow
row your boat gently
a cold disappear
there was nothing ever there
Track Name: Ghost
you are a heavyweight
fighter
fighting
performing
on the stage
an actor’s actor
still the ghost

you are a mountain
climber
climbing
a bowerbird in the woods
building your buildings
calling
Track Name: Out Alive
I put the pieces down
yes, you could follow me
before we disappear
might make it out of here
out alive
the pull and push of it
never quite came to me
I couldn’t lie so well
so I made up the truth
all these years
the hours
days months years
they wash right over me
I don’t go to the shore
the sea it comes to me
like a dream
Track Name: Words You Spent
it’s the miles
the hours, the years
the table across the room
in line of sight
the full/half-empty
the cover-up
the dark
the light
a belief
or lack thereof
the rising smoke
this flood
came from a bottle
a drop of blood
the word on a page
The words you spent
a tear
a sign
the cause unanswered
the numbers you collect
the colors change
shade of convenience
up and down the stairs
the words you spent
Track Name: Periscope
floating fixed
crushed in a slide
pushing to the other side
still the ghost
invisible
you behind the periscope
a different eye
this one I know
following and marks the move
focus on a piece of me
you turn in and I don’t speak
the parts combine
the pieces whole
newly designed scenarios
a tender current pulling me
at the edge
into the sea
Track Name: Kaboom
here in this bed
we’re two birds on a wire
out in the cold
caught out in the cold
bury the gun, girl
destroy the evidence
change all the names
and burn it to ash
the cables and lines
wired up perfectly
a great kaboom
to bring it all down
shining its sweetness
I plucked and ate it
I figured it out
I figured it out
smoke or no smoke
a tender new device
blooms on the doors
already outside
under the street lights
come stand a spell with me
and watch it all fall
before it begins
Track Name: Looking
looking
for a well
built
man
18-30
years old
for slaughter
Track Name: One Teeth
i don’t mind your teeth
but you’re better in a box
it’s easy to forget
the books you’ve never read
the words you’ve never sai
Track Name: Still Alive
are you still the cop?
are you still the criminal?
the wondering saint
sleeping off the miracle
are you still alive?
tell me
yes, this house needs work
yes, I’ll make it up to you
everything’s in place
to bring it down over you
are you still alive?
tell me
