Isaac's Song 01:38
I’ve gone in I’ve gone in I’ve gone in I’ve gone in I’ve gone in I’ve gone in...
2.
Pity Dance 04:21
I’m leaving out the parts I don’t like
 Oh I ought to learn to learn
 I ought to learn I can’t please myself every time I say bring me sunflowers
 And bring me a landscape of clouds and rain And let the sky give up
 Her many heavy hammered warnings
 I’ll take her warnings But you’d assumed
 When I left mommy would wash my body Back to you
 Back to you How many things
 How many things
 Can I say to you
 And expect shock horror shock horror shock horror hallelujah
 To descend again in sweet oblation Your god’s a lion recently fed, drowsy And the body the body the body the body It waits for obliteration Come on fire
 Don’t leave me waiting for the world to replace me Replace me
 Oh replace me I’ll tell the truth
 I have been sleeping with the lights on Ever since I left you Since I left you
3.
Creekmouth 04:09
A thousand people cling to bottles
 To powdered babies and leather bibles Oh I’ll find it right by me
 And I’m gonna throw
 My body
 Make sweet the water once bitter to me I’m gonna hush til it’s done I’m gonna hush til it’s done A thousand people cling to bottles
 To powdered babies and leather bibles Open your creekmouth
 Your cankered waters
 Rising out
 Rising out
 You’re rising out
 You’re rising out
 You’re rising out I’m gonna hush til it’s done I’m gonna hush til it’s done
4.
Pigs 04:53
I’m through accepting what you offer me Oh what I done what I done
 To keep this mystery
 This is the night of reckoning And it don’t seem right to keep to me And I’m leaving out the parts I don’t believe in Oh I’m restless as a geiser
 Like a blind animal in water
 Oh arm of the devil Fool of the devil
 And arm of the dreamer The dreamer the dreamer About to rain Bind and unbind starlings Cursive with litanies About to rain
 Overtake overtake
 Like out at the pond when the storm came marching Marching in
 And play turns to play turns to play
 Marks the day
 Marks the day
 And it marks the day So I’m done leaving out my family In the rain

BMB 02:43
From in your car
 We saw the fire
 And we could feel it on our skin Slick licorice road
 Our glassy eyes
 Shared in the argument of Undefended light Oh did you say What did you say Oh did you say What did you say
7.
Raise your arms for victory Drink to love
 Drink to me
 We’ll start over We’ll start new this time With all stars
 All stars and shadow And we’re all stars Yes yes I know Oh yes I know Around a thanks Giving moon A misty light imprecise and still From a jagged bright
 Sickle moon The big man stared him down In the middle afternoon
 Hid the blood and the metal With his hands With his hands With his hands With his hands Oh is that a star Oh shallow victory Is that a star
 Oh shallow victory Is that a star
 Oh shallow victory Is that a star
 Oh shallow victory
8.
Waiting for sun in the morning My eyes on the ceiling
 A fire of birds brilliantly burns And the body knows Before I know And didn’t we
 Didn’t we pretend?
 Oh you and your christ kite Caterwauling in the air
 Coarse and feral
 And even so you let me go
 I couldn’t charm my way back to you Oh late lady night
 Oh lake lake at night
 Oh slouched ghosts of light
 And your storm shoulders bright In the bloomed lilac booms
 I prayed for peace
 Where the lampare cinders Burned the trees Still I can half see you I can half see you
 In the yard
 In the rain In your wellington boots
 Where we danced like we were on fire Where we danced like we were on fire Like the birds we spoke with fire We danced like we’re all on fire...
9.
I only realized today
 I thought I felt something like a shift of weight I have been hiding
 I have been hiding Oh dear divining ray
 I have to breathe
 I have to breathe
 I have a dream and it’s gone Cathode lit clouds rolling on Oh did you call Did you call my name I have been hiding
 And New York’s behind me
 Oh come on now
 Oh come on now
 Oh come on now roll over everything No you won’t catch me
 I know this street
 And I and I and I
 I’ve got my own policies
 I’ve got my own policies
 But the divining ray is threatening To illuminate illuminate everything

GMS 02:34
Send me resend me
11.
When the ghost of me refuse to speak And in my dreams I watch TV
 I’m blue inside
 I’m the blue light I’m blue inside I’m the blue light I’m blue inside I’m the blue light And I need this town
 This white town
 And I’m the red blood of this white town Parade in someone else’s crown Parade in someone else’s crown Parade in someone else’s crown Parade in someone else’s crown From the back of my head tied To the back of my head tied From the back of my head tied To the back of my head tied To the back of my head tied To the back of my head tied... A braid of voices
 “David, David”

Wig 02:34

Once more
 Once more
 Once more
 You asked me why all these years
 All these years I’ve everything from you Why now Why now You asked me why I tried to ruin everything Everything everything... These things they cannot be taken back I know I know
 These things they cannot be taken back I know I know....

Just Once 07:37
What did I say
 To send you a rumbling past me
 I was afraid I would lose you someday Like I lost me that day In all my dreams
 Your face is hidden from me Formless in some velvety shade What were you hiding from
 Who were you hiding from
 I wanted to know And what is done
 I can’t leave it alone
 I have to know I have to know I have to know And just once
 Just once just once
 Did you love me once I’ve been ready What did I say
 Oh no what did I say And what did you want What did you want What did you want
 A life in the dark
 A life in the dark And what is done
 I can’t leave it alone
 I didn’t know I didn’t know
 But just once just once just once Did you love me once And just once just once just once Did you love me once? I have been ready For so long
 For so long
 For so long And I’m not aloud the pity Did you ever once pretend Pretend
 Pretend And you’re out there bar hopping And the label men are calling Who’s next who’s next
 And I’m fat and drowsy And I’m fat and drowsy And I’m fat and drowsy And I’m fat and drowsy I’ll make you a bet
 You knew it would wash away
 In the crying and gush
 And the new england rain
 But I’m not afraid
 I’m not afraid
 And just once just once just once I could love you once
 And just once just once just once I could love you once
 She loved me...

Metal roof metal blood Hide the boots
 Hide the mud
 In the car In her yard
 In the blanket
 In the barn
 If I could hold you in my arms Quiet boy Quiet boy Laughing dog Secret prayer Firebird Firebird Firebird I’m the water I’m the prow I’m the never I’m the now Heavy Hammer Heavy Ghost Firebird Firebird Firebird Firebird Firebird Firebird Firebird
