keisha "morning and
a warning and a wager
your sometime need
is split in two
and the mortar sits still
in the vortex of anger
not over, when will it kill us all" Favorite track: My Impatience.

david heil This album is bloomin amazing. And by bloomin I mean the F-word. I had low expectations after the wonderment of Heavy Ghost - so happy to be proved wrong. This baby rocks. Favorite track: Rooster.

Human Torch 04:27
how could this day go wrong? how could this day go wrong? how could this day go wrong? how could this day go wrong? how can I learn from my mistakes when all that I touch burns away and my little smoke alarm is silent on the kitchen wall - not a chirp at all how could this day go wrong? maybe my world is just too brittle or maybe it’s just my way oh but when it’s all done, ah the clean up it takes so long it takes so long it takes so long how could this day go wrong? how could this day go wrong? how could this day go wrong? who’s strong who’s the stronger one now I’m not having any of that chamomiling around line up gold diggers! ah! look who’s on a roll (vent the flu and) it ignites in a clear line of thought (cinders kick in) and all that I touch I possess (keep your distance) and I am not alone I am not alone I am not alone I am not… how could this day go wrong…

Sawtooth 03:52
what would I do with your love right now forehead to the door, keep you pounding outside what could we say’s not already said you fold your devotion like you make your bed and I see: two sets of teeth and two sets of eyes and sheepskin lies about wasted time what could I do with that love right now the alkaline sting of your words in my mouth what could we say it’s already dead you fold your devotion like you bang your head here’s what I need: a year in your life we’d sawtooth together, eat each other alive two sets of teeth and two sets of eyes I’ll not hear another word about wasted time you’ll ask if I need a flake of your life but we’d sawtooth together eat each other alive we’ve drawn out the ring and we’ve chosen our sides but it all bleeds together in a shrapnel nightmare and silence

I don’t know how but I lost count days in the heather and nights in the gloam lacunas of ‘I don’t remember’ haloed in silver haloed in gold I filled my pockets up with promises of the weight of the world still I would leave this town on my own two feet if I only knew which way was out we are a conquest of bellies and we are the steam rolling off and we are the light changed forever we are cicada skins in the lawn we are the freezer door hanging open we are the misty kitchen cloud we would leave this town on our own two feet if we only knew which way was out I’ve only stayed for this I’ve only stayed for this this summer madness is alive, I’m alive I’ve only stayed for this I’ve only stayed for this this summer madness is alive, I’m alive somewhere between my house and here I saw the truth oh, somewhere between my house and here I saw the truth ah, you won’t believe me, you won’t believe me, ah you never do I’ve only stayed for this I’ve only stayed for this this summer madness is alive, I’m alive I’ve only stayed for this I’ve only stayed for this this summer madness is alive, I’m alive alive, I’m alive I’m alive

War Machine 05:08
don’t ask questions to which you know the answers am I in trouble? am I in trouble? don’t ask questions to which you know the answers what did I do wrong? what did I do wrong? despite all my feints and dodges he will read me clean he will read me clean don’t ask questions to which you know the answers and certainly we bruise what we love and love is prescient to the surrender of when you struck me when you bore down when you ignored me but you kept me around I held it back, I slapped my wrist I nearly said it I nearly said it I nearly said it I nearly said it I nearly said it I nearly said it I nearly said it I nearly said it why’d you hurt me? I am a pilot of precision writing red a red-tongued snake licking the words formally prescribed to the page a shining perfect conductive conduit, message sent just as received, perhaps a little cold but there it is I am a war machine мой дух, Я тебя люблю and any act in my defense could only ever seem to be a flash of armor in the field, an act of desperate jealousy and you would sell me off as soon as it was easy as if wasn’t there to please as if I wasn’t on my knees as if I’m only worth the parts a stack of money and a breeze and you know well that I could say as much if I was pressed to plea it was only love it was only love it was only love… amazing grace: I forgot my name what’s erased will remain amazing grace: I forgot my name what’s erased will remain I am a pilot of precision writing red a red-tongued snake licking the words formally prescribed to the page a shining perfect conductive conduit, message sent just as received, perhaps a little cold but there it is I am a war machine…

is this what you wanted at the end of the night to stare down your life? but there you are, black as the question you’ve been here before you’ve stood at the door tell me it’s worth the climb out of my life this time and call to me every hour to tell me again and once again I’ve been dismantled under gin and Jolene and the Rochester rain and overhead, heavy booted you’re searching the rooms I know that it’s you oh tell me it’s worth the climb out of my life this time and call to me every hour to tell me again and I’ll tell you it’s worth the climb out of your life this time I’ll call to you every hour to tell you again is this what you wanted?

I felt something shift when I walked in the room are your eyes on me now? and my life goes slack, poured out like lead are your eyes on me now I was at a low I was at a low I was at a low you interrupt my fall with your eyes on me now keep your eyes on me now I, I’m alright here. quiet. are your eyes on me now? are your eyes on me now? and my hive goes still ready to fall - undo me now I was at a low I was at a low I was at a low keep your eyes on me now I was out of love I was out of love I was out of love keep your eyes on me now...

Rooster 04:23
hear me now the hunter speaks I, I’ve got my stripes I am molting all over I evolved here and I belong a rooster learning to call his own name I, I’ve got my stripes I am molting all over I evolved here and I belong a rooster learning to call his own name a rooster learning to call his own name hear me now the hunter speaks I, I’ve got my stripes I am molting all over I evolved here and I belong I am molting all over I evolved here and I belong a rooster learning to call his own name

two on this rock: a target and an arrogant one the reason that I crow, for some reason I may never know these are the faults of the hand: an imperfect arrow yet these are the bones I command ever I see them, on and on you ignored me like when we were boys the rules of survival: only the arrogant face their prey these are the wounds of my youth, ones that I still still feel: Isolation we only played your rules these are the faults of the hand: an imperfect arrow: the pencil you dug in my back up to the letters maybe when you’ve done burning all your bridges you’ll burn for me and maybe when you’ve done spent all your hand you’ll reach for me this is my song to the earth I’ll sing it loud and clear how does one cut through the air: one disappears

kiss me here. finally, you have kissed me, you’ve held me down and made me give and colored me red, like your anger, green, like remember when oh the silence in the car I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over morning and a warning and a wager your sometime need is split in two and the mortar sits still in the vortex of anger not over, when will it kill us all I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over and I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over over me over me over me over me and under me howling, the valley thundering I would pass through you if you asked me to silent head, heavy and resting rest for the ending is rolled up in my tongue I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking I wasn’t thinking tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over tell me when it’s over…
