Absence 03:25
Flies will stop and stare Before they feast on moldy bread Flies will stare Built like a neurotic squirrel Huff the fumes we’re running on Lights just dim Time keeps pushing on Cars will screech their favorite song On deaf ears
Drawstring 03:27
I started floating out towards Ceilings and windows under duress I started crawling away from Bold escape plans under duress The frantic noise that triggers Separation under duress The groans that match my outlook Law of attraction under duress
The Bardo 04:11
Recall the top hat Covered in black art He started to make us soar Then robbed our purses Pulled down to prison Escape through water They were trying to steal our names Saved by our mothers Dressed as a woman Spewing nonsense Talking over the ancient call Ignore the input
Who let you in? Lied with a grin Lied to keep soaring The stewards were sold Chalk it up as a win Up as a bold win Lied with a grin Not so steady now Lied to keep soaring Almost steady now The stewards were sold Oh so steady now They ran out of drinks You ran out of stories
Washed worn Deep steps Pale skin is thin but holds tight It won’t give to prods or force tests Scratch built Off track Tied tight with rusty live wires Now hold still, they try An old man with a spry mind An old man with restless cold hands Thumbs down the ride share He walks with plans in pocket He’s far from lonely
Strikes red The host is crumbling down Soft kick, soft kick, punch, start running Lost all the ease of your solid footing The wheels on the whale are about to fold in Past all the stops where you could still see starting
Shot Giant 03:13
Grab them and throw them Through a high powered wormhole Toss those short little words (And they go) It sucks to wait It sucks to sit down All runny and post tense Thoughts competing for head space. All those charged little words Out of the pulse thread
Hot tempered with guns Swarm in, the bees are heated Fists, stingers, and buzz Long reaches stopped with tasers Fire standing its ground Burnt sleeves are tracked with needles Cries that don’t bring help Cries that fall short Then the thought of giving in A time to reset 16, 17, 18 moments gone, no longer tasted No longer causing harm Cries that don’t bring help A time to reset
Can’t stop the tail, stop from swinging After it’s own demands Beliefs and spells are impeding The forward strokes to land Damn it for the noise it’s been making And for fogging up the path Can not set sail until there’s beacons A marker, a point, a plan Caught up in the swell
Long spits, choking on the horse Messages encoded, smeared and scorched The rider checks his throat The neck still pulses from his last warm laughter Onward, roll Brief shade that covers skin and bone Burn breaks through soggy wraps and air The rider checks his throat The neck still pulses from his last warm laughter
