Fear, a feeling, is it real? So nostalgic too, it just puts the dark on you another sand down, the hands of oil are peeling, and from the sun, restraint to just throw the shade on you another cell now is a chance to, is attempt to, and is trying to recall but you’re never going to touch me and if I ever manage to get out, it’s all this waking life - just drags me down a life spent uneasy, in pieces always in pieces here a life rent completely, release me away from fever dreams Fear, a friend, without context it’s reeling - you’re never going to pay enough to do right the veil is a thread and now it’s raising like the tension of a string that just plays the note high and if I ever really make it out it’s all this waking world that drags me down a life spent uneasy, in pieces, always in pieces here a life left - release me away from fever dreams you're sleeping in the glass room, in the glass house- is a memory now is a memory to me don’t you know this shift is real? you move to lay your body down, the hands of oil are like some small machines never knowing how to feel, pushing air inside your tired mind and sleeping it trapped in fever dreams a life spent uneasy, in pieces, always in pieces here a life rent out completely, release me away from fever dreams

don’t lift up your hands, it’s only a warning like blood in the sand, a kiss is a bruise is endurance for then felt the falling collapse and held in a small room of hell don’t lift up your face, it’s all tangled in, it’s always unraveling for control of, to control it, in controlling, to control it in time growing tall, had outlined the realms left to seal them we knocked back the gold, hoping another one could heal them for when did the faulting collapse come back to just kiss your face we raise up the glass, it’s only the Devil you know, it’s only the Spirit you taste for control of, in controlling, to control it a silver line, nobody born bad, no twin of mine left standing take clear at dawn and dark into dusk, a habit formed in wandering a pass, a turn, a season now lost, some badge to earn, some heavy cost a horn, a tusk, an animal wild, no twin of mine still standing could control it, in control of, for control of, to control it

run little sister, run so fast, I see he’s gaining on you take a breath and make it last the darkwater horizon smile like you mean it and just cast the light of hell right out of here no one else can see it, the shape that makes you fall on fallow ground so no more laying down, and no more dragging out it’s the darkhorse you give legs to, no one else can ride in the wake of strange beginnings, we can still stand high sing a song, a verse unhinged, passed down from our mother take breath and make it count and learn to sing another try ‘cause we need to and laugh the life of hell right out of here no one else can see him, the shape that makes you fall on fallow ground so lay your burden down in the springtime that surrounds you it’s the darkhorse we give legs to, no one else can ride in the wake of strange beginnings, we can still stand high it’s you and, you and I lie it’s the darkhorse we give legs to, that I am proud to ride in the wake of weak beginnings, we can still stand high it’s you and I. you and I still try

off to the races and I let ride, what’s changed us in our time I’ll take the wheel but it’s the hunger that drives and fades us and our kind sometimes this place is a prison and sometimes a palace, I’ll be the king in my crown and sometimes the blood and the love is what I’m drinking of I’m going to drag through the whole town everyday I’m fading away again, It’s my kind every night I come back to life again, it’s my time to shine all fire, all fire, all fire on me, just standing in the sun and off to the races, I’ll let it slide, all fire in our time sometimes your love is the thing that I, is the blood that I’m just drinking though towns and sometimes the night is a prison and sometimes a palace I’m still the king in my own crown everyday I’m fading away again,it’s my kind every night you know I come alive again, it’s my time to shine and everywhere you..I’m going to find, and everything we... Nothing’s going to stop us

in a place so loud we will never be free just a slave to a taker, to a man, to a need and I won’t go back, I never wanted to leave just a slave to a taker, will we never be free? in a city so callus, with two dead set eyes with a mouth full of xans and a handful of time they say what doesn’t kill you will just keep you alive and what doesn’t kill you... in the place you love with all the dogs set free in a future together was never going to be me just a slave to a taker, to a man, to a need and I can never go back, I never wanted to leave in the city so callus with two dead set eyes With a mouth full of xans and a handful of time they say what doesn’t kill you will just keep you alive and what doesn’t kill you... always the long way home In the city, so callus, with two dead set eyes With a mouth full of xans and a handful of time They say what doesn’t kill you will just get high And what doesn’t kill you...

I outlive the day I outrun the night hoping he is waiting to dress me all in white and it feels light wade out in the water now with you my love there’s nothing like the feel of it and you we outshine the sun, we outrise the moon and if you’ll be here waiting, I’m coming to you soon and it feels light wade out in the water now with you my love there’s nothing like the feel of it and you lay back in the water black with you my love crown my love with flowers, I crown my love with light to lay back in the water dressed up all in white

what Devil, what shape is shifting now? what lover, which friend pulled back and how into another grey year and from another cracked face as I have? a wish for some erasure is surely coming close, if nothing else ever has I cannot go anywhere without you following I’ll never know anything without you following just rest, just lay on future’s dunes once was a wild smile, once was a wander sad barking at the moon all across the body the lines of both expressions are stationed now for real the glaze of tried companions have built upon the senses so dense it cannot feel what you are is all I have wanted to be where you are is nowhere and nothing and never free another day is done another day is gone for me

impetuous girl, what you don’t know can’t hurt you wish they wouldn’t come back around here no more but you say “I’ll get you yet” they are crass, all the people in towns, are falling out and falling down and falling wish I would’ve come back here less as a boy dressed up as girl dressed all in colors and how you will sing to them, and how your pain will fall and how you’ll sing to them, singing it: “la la la la la la la la la lah ” you don’t have to cry anymore all the prettiest worlds...don’t cover them all up in your mind as you paint, as it should’ve been, you were meant to love you could not live without it and in your heart and in your lines you’ve worked so hard and you’ve lived so kind, been out there just falling down wish they wouldn’t come back for my boy dressed as a girl dressed all in colors and how you will sing to them and how your verses fall and how there’s a Roman candle burning just for you you don’t have to cry anymore
