Knife 02:48
I just had the craziest dream I was waiting for the knife but the feeling never came The city always sounds like worlds dissolving You ask me but I don't know what these hands are holding I'd rather be in your apartment Making plans to just do nothing Let's get started There were colours and circles and pieces of bone There children and animals playing and I was alone And the universe seemed to be pulling me into The places unknown There were colours and circles and I was alone I've been taking it back one by one
Silent 03:13
I watch you break down And turn into muscle With satisfaction and a sense of achievement I control my own skin If I want to change it Then it's going to happen I still remember the feeling I keep trying to hide you away I hear the sound of you breathing But it's all over for now Until the sun descends like a dying balloon As if the helium burned out too soon (I watch you break down) And the stars appear like bullet holes In the roof of a car in a scene from an action film (I watch you break down into muscle) It keeps coming back I still remember the feeling I keep trying to hide you away I hear the sound of you breathing But it's all over for now Shoes will tie themselves in the future We will eat each other in the future Towns by the beach in the future Won't last long
Finally Things are going right for me It's a day I thought I'd never see I could explode I'm so happy But hold on Something's not right A dark shape just out of sight I can feel my chest getting tight I can't breathe I can't breath Just remember that I'm So happy And things are going right for me I've got everything I really need No wonder I feel so lucky But wait Why do I feel like I'm fading away
Sand 03:26
In the desert I can't tell if you're taller than me And the cars could be toys, could be one mile could be three But I've still got some sand in the back of my head In my eyes, in my bed The desert has followed me home I bathed in the grains Gave strange nicknames to my veins See the time stamps in my mind Making costumes out of lines I'm mostly made of space But I'm stuck in my head In my place In my bed I woke up with sand in my eyes The creases in my hands are filling up with sand Sand is like water It goes where it wants
Red Vines 03:23
At the edge of the frame The watercolours get pale and washed out It's like you're not even trying You told me Van Gogh only ever sold one painting in his life Then shot himself So you'll follow his career up to a point Don't take lend me your ear as an order If this is good enough for you I guess it's good enough for me But now you're taking orders At the newest vegan restaurant in town It's not going to happen If you don't make it happen
The Church 04:32
Shoes tied up tightly Ready for the last time Now they're playing your favourite song Just as you requested I know you'd be so happy To see us all together We'll keep all your things safe And your room the way you left it There are so many flowers The church smells like summer She's here with her family They loved you like you were there own It doesn't feel like goodbye I don't think it ever will
Jury 02:25
There was an audible gasp as the defendant walked in Just like the sharp intake of breath before wind instruments kick in Or like the last lungful of air before you dive in for a swim Or like the sound you made the first time someone brushed against your skin He wore a tightly fitting suit he must have bought when he was smaller He didn't know he'd grow so much he just kept getting taller When the judge asked him his name his short term memory seemed to falter When he answered he looked up and made eye contact with the jury Don't do this again
