Track Name: When I Sleep
i keep a receipt as a bookmark
between the times i dive in
and when i sleep, it's another story
i did all this to feel a little less lonely
Track Name: End Of Nature
i speak
you know i’m at it all the time
and i can wait till
i’m time
till i save
myself
my ekphora made you watch me go
again
and i didn't know what to bring
things are changing when i’m me
so don’t be so decided
that the hell i am is a shared thing
encrypting and disengaging
it asks
can it be improved
it answers
i don’t think it can be done
but i’ll consider
Track Name: Age
[0]
[22]
the machine is not broken
i went to the mountain
i made my body a cage
took up a hiking habit
and lost track of my age
after the motions ran out is when
life seemed better
without an appearance
[??]
with a master hand guiding
with a sceptre in the same tomb
now i stand as if
i can see it coming
and not quite care
but i do
[?/?]
i just can’t sit still
Track Name: 1993
never mind, Hypnos
Track Name: Eyes
you coat my eyes like candy
when i feel you i don’t feel real
when i’m in me i feel too real
and i doubt it’s only in my head

your eyes are coating
in a different way
have you ever seen me
as me
what’s me
that’s why i’m leaving
and when my mind is gone
i’ll be chanting

you coat my eyes like candy
when i feel you i don’t feel real
when i’m in me i feel too real
and i doubt it’s only in my head

i let it happen
waxed through lighter meanings
my un-gardened, my sugar side
let it happen
but not so sorry
and when my mind is gone
i’ll still be chanting

i’m a vague ol' thing to me
unfamiliarity i need
in which abused
i am concrete
and when this thought is gone
i can be actual (i’ll be actual)
Track Name: Life Cuff / Pitiless As Bronze
am i the building
is this my only being

life owns me
life owns me
life knows the time to leave
not now
i just can’t
i was just wondering
and i’ve been liminal
and pretty close to losing

on my way home
a fire started
combusting sphere!
my face was scarlet
i got too close then i felt no heat
as time flew by i fell asleep
i dreamt about things i couldn’t help
and when i woke up i had to doubt
whether it was real
so i started unbelieving
but my heart kept beating
Track Name: Dissolve
in the pool I dissolve
on the sun I shone
as we revolve
around a full grown
feeling I have grown
have I grown?
in the hours hated being matter
I never had a heart
but remember
I live forever
in the air I breathe
layers deep beneath
now I can be the time I need
now it’s easy, sure is
