Track Name: In the Dark
What have you found over time
Many tries, same path flies
In the dark it waits for you – the squeezing crush of repetition.
Splintered up between days, what you have found.
Track Name: From Above
If you said ten times it wasn’t true,
If I told you twice it wasn’t you
If I told you once it’s better to
Stop,
Then what does that then make those words?
Multiple truths arrive at two.
If I said words bend every time
And time warps around each corner
Light moves through each thing, a unit between you.
Multiple truths arrive at two.
If the mask is there for repelling
It’s done the job it was meant to do
And those that revel in rebelling walk into a fire of unknowing.
Multiple truths arrive at two.
From above this looks so small.
From inside all I see are walls.
Track Name: The Hold
You’ll roll around ‘til the drought hits the town
Then the tide will take you along into another stronghold
The hold is what gets you
And then, then the let-go
So violent, you can’t speak – you try, but it won’t keep
Thank God, I’ve found someone like you
A dry husk, empty words, a roomful of mirrors
A storm that reaches only the door
See-through glassy eyes, not a surprise, that offensive move
A cave, a haze, all I can afford in a time of scarcity.
Track Name: Backed into a Corner
When you’re backed into a corner and you’ve got no place to go
The nearest had to play is as good as any
Desperation looks like violence
Tell that to the shell-shocked and the tongue-tied
Don’t be counting moves
When you’re backed into a corner.
There’s your choice to have –
A hole or a horror.
Constant state of alarm – fear is the friend we reach out to intimately
Reaching out in the dark for a familiar shape
Don’t be pure reaction when you’re backed into a corner.
Track Name: It Won't Be Along
It won’t be along
It won’t be too soon
I won’t admit defeat to you
I won’t wait for you
I’m finding a way, I’m keeping my head
Don’t you laugh
I waited too long.
Track Name: Incoming
I heard a warning: INCOMING
