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...

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

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

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

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”
