Track Name: Ten Months in the Deluge
my bed is sewn miles from the threads of your iris / stretched taut and thin with each drift of your eyelid / painted agate teases from the knit of my sheets and i worry that you will forget me

all the while, they're dancing with anesthetic cocktails / they pull their laces and they file their fingernails / i'm deathly afraid someone will succumb soon and there aren't enough cups in the bathroom

like the light splits the ripples in the delta / we follow the shepherd from the shelter
Track Name: City of Windows
come down from the city of windows / stand over my feet / 'cause everything you are is filled with pills and peas

to take on the world from a flower / craves a strength i can't see / so i'll meet you down by the tower and we'll find a place we can be

trapped inside of you
Track Name: Do You Know?
do you know where to find me? / underneath the tree of blushing leaves / waiting on the stars to set me free

do you know where to find me? / laying on the shore amidst a gentle breeze / looking out with hope to the sea

can you see what i see? / comfort in a rainfall, a blue sky's possibilities / and nature's sweet serenity

do you believe what i believe? / the world is full of color and simple beauty / and all of it is truly artistry

do you know what i want to be? / a singer, a lover, a dreamer, a mother, an angel of peace / do you really know me?
Track Name: Sleepwalkers
i dream in monochrome still-frames / forever elapsing through the membrane / got lost in my ribcage; now i don't know anyone

my eyes fall a little short of the six-pane / skip the creak in the staircase / my head whispers to me, ripped from the lungs

i lie next to the widowed one / she left her mind with her second son / what do you live for when all's come undone?
Track Name: Harold
his father was a filmmaker, but now he's dead / he took his own map right off of his head / you don't even know the pain

once, he found the show was but a pretense / he's fond but not in love with his existence / you don't even know the pain
Track Name: Animal House
she, a woman of six feet / she lived her life pointlessly / playing god for an easy fee / an object of feminine purity

he, an artist of freedom / he knew he had a gift to give / and aspired to awaken dormant hearts / by teaching the numb to live

he took her body, he stole her love / by the hands of souls he'd made free / and wept for his life of wretchedness / and promised that soon she too would see

we are beings born to live / but also born to naturally fall / so what is our purpose in this life / if we're all just animals after all?
Track Name: Fragile Heart
instantly, the world was breathing / as the light spilled over the land / through its veins, the rivers cleaving / their paths despite earth's lament / and that earth convulsed, its birth unplanned / terra tethered loosely to a fragile heart beset

we awoke to sudden beauty / as the skies dressed themselves in gold / and the stars began their wooing / while we watched the world unfold / every moon beam etched on canvas forever old / but, the lights were dimming, and our hearts grew ever cold

and the rain, it came upon us like a plague in darkest night / indefinitely, our way was lost in mother's great device / her fragile heart struggling for every beat / every step was endured by weary feet

born of the angels and borne by wind's affair / they gathered, all together, to sing the world's despair / to witness all that writ in verse undone / for in darkness, all air and earth are one
Track Name: Spring Inquiries
if i was a flower, would sunlight fall upon my leaves? / and if i was a flower, would you free my rigid limbs and dance with me?

and if i was a sunrise, would i climb to the horizon just for you? / and if i was a sunrise, would i make you feel like you're alive when the day is new?

if i was a willow tree, would my arms hang below my knees? / and if i was a willow tree, would you come seeking shade and company?

if i was a sea bird, would i be singing songs you understand? / and if i was a sea bird, would you let me guide you safely back to land?
Track Name: Morning Follows Me
breathe deeply, children / soon naught but wraiths of canaan / you are, for jordan burns again / harbingers of fire / as men come, casting the sun / with cries of "yahweh!" on their tongues

sculpted now in slumber / beneath a holy light that wanders / restlessly about / painting blush the figures sundered

and the fire whispers into our virgin ears, "you will kneel before me; morning follows me here"
Track Name: David's Trip
i came down to see the trees / but vines surrounded me / wrapped around my belly / gripping to reality

i found nothing in your hand / but pure emotion / it spins around again / it's an endless cycle

who are you, with brains painted blue? / don't come too close, my sanity controls me
