Purposeful 03:04
We should change out of our younger clothes And realize our weights There is good beneath the sudden squalls Quickly gathering Will we truly talk in tongues? Make our way back home Heaven knows it’s gone from me But I still feel it’s mine
Animus 01:41
And we all understand now that we are but skeletons And if I’m the Animus and you’re the Anima we are but skeletons with old age and weariness We are but skeletons
Anima 01:04
Coffee 02:09
If there is any other way to go I will let it happen If I don’t know how to break through With coffee prayers Where is the stimulation? AHHHH
What traditions do you hold so close to you? We’ve all but fallen for our leisure Safe houses and quiet gardens Oh, Excavator Do you only nurture when the sun is out? The light was shining on my stature You were at a boil Oh, Excavator And I named you with certainty As if the surfaces of things Might represent the condition of something that is not tangible “Why don’t you want to be found?”
Why is it that you look up now? The people came from all around What rocky soil What thorny ground The people came from all around The ramparts all came crashing down From the horns and the drums And I’ll stop trying to be a colossal force Something that would shake the ground
Are you healthy? Such hard angles The houses I’ve lived in are crumbling And there are lines on my face Are you hungry? What impulse driven life Would you rather that it be filled up? Now that we know where we live
'Song' 03:48
Are you trying to live again? Barren with the womb and the land In solidarity I went looking there was nothing to find or see There are birds in the trees, but they’re leaving Finding identities
mourningbird 01:36
We think about continuing the story But is that going anywhere I fell into your curves That pointed away from me Ripped the clothes you gave me right off of my back And there is no certainty in the feeling I don’t hold on to or keep you
To Carry 01:25
All of your signs will be taken For exactly what they are And we carry alongside And we carry alongside But who knows What they are? But who knows What they are?
Unions 05:37
Are we all of us untrained? How do we open arms of giving? We make these unions on our own Did you swallow up some spirit? But I should have gone To see you go I should have gone To see you At the hospital Words were dripping from your mouth Why can’t you stay? I should have gone to see you go I should have gone to see you go
