At fifty years, you're better off with your eyes shut.
When you forgot and blamed me, I understood.
I know, it's hard to stay consistent when you're thrown right in.
Track Name: Trial One
I don't know how I wound up this far underground,
guess I've been holding myself down.
I can search for and make, but never say it to your face.
Now I'm back here in these old United States,
I do declare I still hold my place in a comfortable way of living by the day.
Trial one this way comes.
Track Name: Second Guess
The boxes in the garage are taking you back.
The hesitation in your voice is making me second guess
if i've made a mess.
Track Name: Graveyard
First night back, sitting in the graveyard
digging up what's below, once we've emptied my pack
what was behind our backs?
I got spooked about going back without you,
after the third floor, and the morning I spent with you.
When I couldn't see the moon you said was cut in half,
I thought I'd just go to sleep and dream up the next time we'd speak.
Track Name: Totally Ruined
In time I'll find the fly inside this cloud of rats with wings and rights to film the country's oldest paintings. Forcing time to smile behind a row of rotten teeth at my forgotten dreams. // I can hope a garden grows now where your body rests, in the earth or underneath my bed. For now I'm on the ground face down impersonating death.
They are not your friends
let the right one in.
Track Name: Fur
I remembered you last night while I slept
In the backseat of the car where I sank my face into his fur,
and I wept.
Tonight I walked along underneath the lights
that flooded my windows and coaxed me up;
rubbed the sleep out my eyes.
