Head Axe 03:16
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine et lux perpetua luceat eis One in the mountain, colonial creep One in the jungle vine, they never release Exaudi orationem meam Beautiful creatures, I’ll take all of them Chickens and river oxen corner me then Neon stalactite tell me, where are my friends? Ancestral tampering, a motherly bed Do it with dignity it’s only a head Twentieth taken spectrum shift to the red Nod if it’s good or bad it’s only a head Bisect the body and I’ll unmake my bed Will you forgive me now, it’s only a head

I can see it from here Vapor from the veneer Sweetly smoke You know my shape is always shifting, right? Which of these mouths will bite? What’s the joke? Look up to see the floating hand in the clouds What is and isn’t allowed Wait for it (Slice it down the middle) It picks you up, puts you on top of the pile I’m not the rank and file Pray for it And you wonder what the left hand does (Let me interrupt you, it’s the cobra in the chamber, it’s the most popular flavor, it’s the…) We meet and greet til the eclipse has arrived Multiple memory hive Poison tip (Hidden in the clover) One eye is swimming like a shark in my head / (Feed me fingers and feed me invisible threads) One eye wishes you were dead / (Fermenting in the bed) And you wonder what the left hand does (In concentric circles, swirl your tongue, wait til we find out where you’re from, the evidence, the queen of crumbs, the caution tape) Uh huh...

I was born with the sun in my eyes January of ‘35 I was born in my lover’s arms I was born way too warm I was born ready to die I was born with a rock in my shoe I was born way too soon I was found in the woods in the dirt Face down in a paisley shirt I was born ready to die I was born in a violet light Sniffin’ sand off a paper knife I was born with a gun in my face I was born in outer space I was born with a rotten tooth I was born in a navy suit I was born with a gun in my hand Shootin’ fires in a distant land

Waiting 03:33
When the morning comes I will wait for you In the morning sun I will wait When the morning comes I will wait for you In the morning sun I will wait Wait When the evening comes I will crawl for you When the sun is gone I will fall in fall in When the evening comes I will crawl for you When the sun is gone I will fall in fall in Follow Follow Follow Oh

Sing, sing a song Yes, all day long Steeple in brine Prisonous mind Love and let lay King for a day Arms in a line Unequals sign Subject to change Subject is strange Yours, yours and mine Twist in the twine Letting it breath Plum to the teeth Sphere is divine Prisonous mind

In the tv Muscle body Lay it on me Son and daughter Bread and butter See you suckers Bitch on wheels going Loyal subject Distant object Trust the process I am obsessed Bitch on wheels going far My own lover in the car Triple vision Flowing ribbon

Embrace the bomb For what it’s worth Embrace the bomb Get a clue We say “deep like an ocean” We say “tall like a tree” Listen to me babe Learn to love Learn to love what isn’t you Embrace the bomb Suffer the sound Getting a taste Saddle the faun Moment to waste We say “powerful women” We say “talented too” Listen to me babe Nothing is free babe Learn to love what isn’t you They throw the sword into the lake They bake you in a birthday cake And build the house you just escaped Come and get it They want it light and you are dark They want it dumb and you are smart Embrace me babe your death is ours Deep like an ocean, tall like a tree Listen Throwing the sword, babe, house on the lake, babe Listen Eating a bomb, babe, saddle the faun, babe Listen, listen, listen Listen to me

Left to my own Devices I’ve shown I can’t say no I won’t say no We’re under oceans Under the sink Secret devotion Waiting for me We’re under oceans Sunk in the ink Bad vibrations Looking for me It’s the kernel below And your missing hand Where the blood won’t flow And the shifting sand It’s the width of a ghost In your little mind Don’t dance that close I won’t say

Critter 02:48
Gentle reminder It’s happening today Bay of feathers Tail of long delay Tether entwined Don’t bother with asking what you already know It’s gonna be fine after I chew down to the center Invest in bone Ha ha ha Flesh of apple Foreign particle Feed a fever Starve a molecule Cover the bell Critter can smell rivers of milk in the snow A woman can tell After a century of compression You let it go Ha ha ha He paints the grass so green A feast, a flower, a word Swallow it down A wheel, a wire, a bird Swallow it down An arm, a leg, admired Swallow it down Fully awake, so tired Swallow it down Tell me I’m your favorite demon, yes Reverse, recoil, at rest If there isn’t a hole then we’ll… Tell me I’m your favorite demon, yes Reverse, recoil, at rest If there isn’t a hole then we’ll make one

Your stiff competition Blessed victim Paint all of our names in green She, she was a prism Full on friction He, he was a movie queen Scramble to divide us Hand inside us We recite the words you provide Angels of a feather Seethe together Sound collapse the cave in its prime The party is over How’d you know her? Ebb into the flow, amen We accept your surrender Vicious bender Migrate to the south, the end
