The Dead 01:49
Ink on the skin again to remember what you want to forget. But they'll never breathe again no matter how close you get. I learned to live with panic deep beneath my lungs. Unfamiliar roadways connected me to flatlined pulses and you. Oh God, the blood lines stretched for miles, but there was nothing I could do. I waited for the song to end so I could finally scream with my most desperate sound--this is our town. Ink on the skin again so I won’t forget. Ink on the skin again. We won't forget. I learned to live with panic deep beneath my lungs. That night trauma gave me a home, but I still lost a piece of my soul.
You change you change you change. Why can't you stay the same? You stay you stay you stay. Why can't you stay away? I still think about our make believe constellations-- “the papery hands,” “the gnarled branch,” “the tendril in the night.” I don’t know if you remember any of this. Just a moment in another sky that was too cluttered, too bright. If only I could forget everything about you.
Pact 03:11
When I die I hope I'm alone. I was too young when I sold my soul. I carried the cross into the room. I wore incense as my first perfume. When I die I hope I’m alone. I was too young when I sold my soul. Since then I’ve lived in silence watching wind eat away my skin while waiting for the end. This is how I learned to doubt my life of useless lungs. Somewhere in this bonehouse I live. But I’m all alone. And I sold my soul.
Summer Wheat 04:18
We once lay in summer wheat making promises we couldn’t keep. A lifetime used to feel long. We said that we’d stay that way. But you changed right before my eyes.
Interlude 00:52
[...] the brain is really reaching. I see it, bloody [...] whitish. The layer of skull then skill like a geological map. The brain in itself like a person is thinking it’s made progress getting out but it’s sitting there motionless. It has no way of enacting its will. I want to reach my thumb and squinch into it. [...] I feel a little disturbed but also glad. I still myself perfectly before myself, the sitting and skin peeled. My skull missing a chunk. Now I kick myself in the neck but my foot comes out past it like I don’t believe myself. [...]
Put me in the middle of the place we used to be But we have an ocean between us. The forest is cold here. A canopy of pine and black oak blankets the mountains. The fog hasn’t lifted as I go to the lake, and let the water suspend me. I swear this spot once meant everything; I lived for that feeling. but now I feel nothing, and that makes me terrified. Put me in the middle.
Dark Eyes 02:19
Most days I feel like I’m going to plummet. I hear your mouth saying words right into my ears. I never forget that I live in a void that doesn’t even notice that I’m here. I hear you in my head all the time, but I never get to see you with my eyes. We are the voice that shouts back at the void. I can't see light with these dark eyes.
Diffraction 02:52
We amalgamate with grace-- like shadow puppets. All this beauty from filtered light and dust-- like a piece of us. I don’t think I can take it.
Joseph 03:44
The ground is cold. You’re home now. We put a blanket on you. I didn't understand the power of my hands till I scratched your head on that September day. Later, I couldn’t breathe when I saw the line outside waiting just to say goodbye. How could that thing sleeping in a casket once be alive? But that was never really you. You were in the music. You were in the air. And you sang about butterflies.
