Scarred on your arm is a semblance of truth Pinned to your sleeve is a construct that we believe In some small way will pull the love from the hate The cross borne to tell us that sovereignty means something Cling on to those you love Pull up the ones you love The question remains, after all these gains Who is a memory and who is a friend? If a circle was drawn around the body, we pray The laws that dissect it won’t matter anyway

Dawn raid 04:26
Shuffle on shoes and light A cigarette path as you scramble for life I was the plan until today walked in That’s what the loved one has come to expect Intricate patterns will shine Bursting the morning into your mind What kind of thought will you have as your grab at the bed? Is this what the loved one has come to expect? Birds will sing in my court, and wake me Earlier than you had thought Give me a chance just to scrape at the wall of your grace A chance to filter the thoughts of your mess A way to see your love as a choice A time to balance out the sound of my voice That’s what the loved one has come to expect You leave me with no light in your eyes You leave with no pulse in your neck And you hover from one foot to the next

I opened up to write a story that Was worth telling But every book I hadn’t read, confronted me and said: “There’s no place for you, there’s no place for you, Try and bring a crowd next time you’re here Maybe then we’ll listen” Only when I’m asleep do I really understand All the things I think I am saying are grandstanding Articles of false faith, I construct words by managing haste Imagine me in print, imagine me in history Every book I’ve binned, every place I’m in tells me to sleep Isn’t it the same, to breeze through cityscapes, unknowing? Statues tell a story without their names showing, isn’t it the same to breeze through cityscapes unknowing?

You were tireless and you broke though When you thought the glass was half-cracked You were weightless when we needed you You bring us back to earth You were timeless when we wanted to grow old in company You were harmless Solid and held at the hip, with a look that says Wait for the moment Wholly unscathed by the look that you gave But sighing in a serious way to find the easiest Way to keep them away is to work every day Learn not to make any false moves We should all see we’re reborn without a real sense of our Enemies, boundaries, or intricacies of our hearts In these straitened times, we should hold on to our ties Oh and you should bless this house, You still have your lover, you still have a chance To get out.

Shipcracks 04:00
Skies on sea and shit from birds on the canopy I’m lying, sunbathing on the deck, burning my neck And I don’t remember if I’ve ever done anything else I’m listening to shipwrecks and silence, and seagulls Silence and shipcracks I have found new lands all the world around, all around I have found new lands all the world around, all around Sail’s out, turn this wheel around and make a sound And leave this gold above the ground, we’ll be here again When we’re old.

Misery 02:38
You smoked a million cigarettes in that dark place And you had sex in the next room Until we had to call an ambulance This was unevitable misery We were not lost but we didn’t know our way We were not lost but we didn’t know where to go In the middle of that dark place that we did stay We drank sour, stolen wine, we drank the whole night through There was a pop poet drinking every night And we never, ever, ever went to school because we didn’t have the time This was unevitable misery You smoked a million cigarettes in your basement room We drew pictures and we fought hard Until we had to call an ambulance It was true, unevitable misery
7.
Skeletons 02:20
Come and I’ll take you round Your bones would take flight, but you’re terrified of the night So come and I’ll take you round You stared right through the window Dreaming of the nearest shore But you believed in what you’d found With your feet firmly on the ground And the band goes ah And the skeletons dance Here’s your chance It makes more sense to know nothing than to take a chance and clip your wings So come on, I’ll take you round
8.
Retaliate 05:20
Light goes out on mountain top/Sewn on your brown book And we’re waiting, we’re still waiting/Please be a part of this Tattoo, tattoo on dead foot/Fight back, it’s time to fight back Now we’ll retaliate, retaliate/Please be a part of this Please be a part of this/Retaliate Walk along the river under tree If you don’t move in the dark No one will hear, no one will see Hold on and push the boat
9.
Faults 01:52
The faults create mountains and cracks in our face They won’t cover our mistakes in a million days We take rocks to the summit as if we were great Though the sky won’t fall, the earth still shakes
