Track Name: burnt jacket
when you took me in
when you fed me from your mouth

don't let me out
if you won't let me out

don't let me out
if you don't won't let me out

when you wore my skin
when you dragged me from the couch

if you don't let me out, oh lord
if you don't let me out, oh lord

let me out
if you won't let me out...
Track Name: too far gone
a moment approached me on the street
i approached a moment on the street
as it passed / we passed something between us
between layers of us flickering
then we were too far gone

a wreck of lastings pursued me in my dreams
i stalked a pride of glances nightly
hours past our bare knees gashed pavement
skinned flesh mixing with ghostly mist
then we were too far gone

halfway halfways
(if you could be so kind in kind)
is halfway of halfway there
(if you wouldn't mind to mind)
the arrow soars motionless
(if you've got the time friend)

then we were too far gone
Track Name: pry harder
SOFT SKULL ABETS A RECKLESS ENGINE
MOTIONS CALLOUS BY DESIGN
I BRUISE MY KNUCKLES 'TIL IT SEIZES
DEATHLIKE AND I'M STATIC FOR A WHILE

HOW COULD YOU HAVE KNOWN IT WASN'T MINE?

oh creeping shapes (IF I'LL NEVER BE)
swallow the swell (THEN I'LL NEVER BE)
oh creeping shapes (PLEASE)

SCRIBBLED MARKS THROUGH RAGGED EDGES
NO INSTRUMENT TO CIRCUMSCRIBE
I SCRAPE MY KNEES TO PLAY AT PENANCE
STRUNG ALONG UNBROKEN LINES

HOW COULD I HAVE KNOWN IT WASN'T MINE?

may they escape (IF I'LL NEVER BE)
winnowed but well (THEN I'LL NEVER BE)
may they escape (FREE)

PAIN IN FORMATIONS OF PAIN IN FORMATIONS OF
PAIN IN FORMATIONS OF PAIN IN FORMATIONS
OF PAIN IN FORMATIONS OF PAIN

to be so
clean as god's mouth
to distend or empty
to sing out
multiply
Track Name: where i started
when i can unmake these headsplitting shapes
i'll pry 'em apart into patternless shards

see where you've left me?
what useless tools.
see how you've spent me?

when i can repay imbalances owed
i'll be where i started before i was born

see where i've come from?
what crooked tools.
see how i've been blessed?

what humbling tools you've left me
what hallowed hopes i carry
what hollows i carve
Track Name: bite the dealer (victory march)
chrome plate the kitchen
varnish the floors
tell us how well it's been going.

settle the neighbours
you've done it before but
tuck in your mic cos it's showing

seal up the entrances
shackle the doors
no one can see what you're owing

widen the moats
spitshine the gore
choose disappear or keep growing

a cell in your bloodstream
a wisp on the moors
a fleck on your eyeball
a grain at the shore

dignify
spitting money from your mouth
turn your pockets out
shore up the walls to shut 'em down

say it kindly
bleed, do it
cut a key for every tooth you
pulled to free your tongue

pixel perfect
gambling everybody's luck
pad your pockets with it
beat back with your empty palms

bite the dealer
bash the dealer's brain
only he knows what you owe
sink his secrets in the lake
make em all proud.

turn your lungs own

who do we think we are
even at war with?
we are who we think we are
Track Name: my mine
are you hungry for it?
did you get what you wanted?
receive.
retreat to repeat.

if your itch is sacred
nature has its price
rip the scab up off it
bleed the shuddering ice

my authentic shampoo!
i'll make my living as you

oh, my sixteen tattoos!
i'll make my living as you

did you get what you wanted?
did you swallow it broken?
did you get what you wanted?
did you cough it up whole?

receive.
retreat to repeat.
