Track Name: O-Horizon
november sky broken just like my thumbs
and i open my mouth to scream but nothing comes
these poisoned capillaries drowning my heart
in heavy metals

the last of the dogwood are losing their leaves
and i started to say something losing degrees
it cracked like a memory in the debris
i'm buried alive

o-horizon
skins and new suns
showing my hand where the boundary lies
oh i've been pulverized

a painted skeleton heavy with need
fixed this lust to the windows and froze all the seeds
what's left of my answer collects, watch it rise
as a rolling echo

o-horizon
skins and new suns
showing my hand where the boundary lies
oh i've been pulverized
Track Name: Warren
in demands i'm frozen darts
in your hands my body starts
raise the land and dig a home
carve my name into your bones

show me how you love the edges of
a promise i forgot
keeping the touch so thunderous
it shakes my heart out

warren i'm sick of baby blue
drunk on the rush i found in you
burning this bright until i'm consumed
under the rubble
taking root

call my name and i unfold
in your arms the stars explode
i'll be brave against the sound
of this quake beneath the ground

show me how you love the edges of
a promise i forgot
keeping the touch so thunderous
it shakes my heart out

warren i'm sick of baby blue
drunk on the rush i found in you
burning this bright until i'm consumed
under the rubble
taking root
Track Name: Stranglehold
i gave my body to the earth
i'd rather give it to you
my nerves they fire so hard it hurts
i'm wrist bound, and ground down

into smithereens
and i know i'm changing speeds
faster than i can't wring my hands tighter
i'm white knuckled and tongue tied
i'm still banging on these insides

the less i eat
the more i dream
the pearls that shiver
in the beams
and flesh of the center
you think i'd know better
what's all this body talk about?
if you translate the meaning
if you stumble on a feeling
let it in and choke it out
choke it out
choke it out
choke it out

i trace the creases in your nape
i'd rather live there with you
but your topography is strange
and i'm a cipher in the blue

into smithereens
and i know i'm changing speeds
faster than i can't wring my hands tighter
i'm white knuckled and tongue tied
i'm still banging on these insides

the less i eat
the more i dream
the pearls that shiver
in the beams
and flesh of the center
you think i'd know better
what's all this body talk about?
if you translate the meaning
if you stumble on a feeling
let it in and choke it out
choke it out
choke it out
choke it out
Track Name: The Endomorph
i had a dream where i came apart
cell by cell, brain to heart
atoms fall just like rain
making maps with the stains

i explode
into birds
living slow
motion hurts

somedays i wish i were small
could melt like snow, be nothing at all
luring all my insides out
until i'm a ghost of a shout

i explode
into birds
living slow
motion hurts

i feel my back start to change
feel my spine rearrange
diamond hard, but cut all wrong
i'm a corpse, i'm a song

i explode
into birds
living slow
motion hurts

i cut myself up in paradise
carving some shape into the ice
Track Name: Big Heaven
big heaven life undone
to this abiding scrutiny
can you see what i see?

beginnings dying loyal
correct the damage in our hearts
and we fall apart

oh, can you see what i see?
in the dust we know

big heaven kneel closer
rest in my palm
and endings lurch forward
repent, respawn
get down
get bitter

sing it with a smile to bleed the truth
i can't stand beside the likes of you
and how king nothing asks if you could
be a flatscan, baby
no no no no no no no

oh, can you see what i see?
in the dust we know
Track Name: Giant Killer
so go get your god
i’m caught in your gape
the treasures in our mouths collide
to empty in this dormant sea

and i would crawl to you

there’s something in the way that you move
deep in the lie
deep in the sound
we’re hunting now
in coma still the violence intrudes
but you say “nothing is wrong”

the pleasures
in the weather of the planet that you tilt
my body aches to guide you
to that holy ancient sigh

and i would crawl to you

there’s something in the way that you move
deep in the lie
deep in the sound
we’re hunting now
in coma still the violence intrudes
but you say “nothing is wrong”

primeval primeval
primeval
Track Name: Union Song
was there ever enough love to hold you in?
keep rattling that cage now, baby
you shoot to win
or was it wound?
was it scar?
was it try to fill in the empty part?
with that old ghost
that perfect union

so what happens if he doesn't come?
who are you if you're never two just one?
could you still gather up the threads
and weave a window in your head?

cause this is ridiculous
you keep pulling this shit
just call it off
you reach for all these shadows in your sleep
don't forget that
someone waits somewhere
but it's your job to hunt them down

what weapon did you draw?
what chill did you bend?
who fell into that shape now baby
that meets your end?
cause in one easy step
you can build a dream
just lie to yourself and
you'll split the seam of love
and that perfect union

so what happens if he doesn't come?
who are you if you're never two just one?
could you still gather up the threads
and weave a window in your head?

cause this is ridiculous
you keep pulling this shit
just call it off
you reach for all these shadows in your sleep
don't forget that
someone waits somewhere
but it's your job to hunt them do
Track Name: Motions of the Moon
so you come around again
pulling pressures in my head
and all the ways we could not bend
all these endings on my shoulders

put a kiss
on your fist
put your fist
on my body

cause in the dim
we exist
and we exist
ever alone

I keep telling you
you’ve got me running
with the motions of the moon
I keep telling you
on and on i’ll let you down
darling, it’s the motions of the moon
I keep saying
it’s too much love

so my heart comes caving in
hollow answers playing dead
i fix a laughter in it’s stead
to warm a hole that’s growing colder

in the space
where our love inflates
we erase
to tremble blind

but in the dim
we exist
and we exist
ever alone

I keep telling you
you’ve got me running
with the motions of the moon
I keep telling you
on and on i’ll let you down
darling, it’s the motions of the moon
I keep saying
it’s too much love
Track Name: Head First
better to know why
better to give in
the air is compromised
and i fold my hands into the quiet

shuffling your feet
sand turns to concrete
turns into something graceless
a light on the beach that could draw your eye

shore up sailor
don't let me down
it's hard enough to breathe
and arms like a cradle thats run aground
keeping the bleeding under control
we're still sleeping and dreaming
head first in the glow of a
white hot whale heart

better to pass through
better to keep thin
the wealth in the lie
is the debt in the skin

so enjoy the weather
or are you gonna panic?
cause the water is rising
the mountains behind you all disappear

shore up sailor
don't let me down
it's hard enough to breathe
and arms like a cradle thats run aground
keeping the bleeding under control
we're still sleeping and dreaming
head first in the glow of a
white hot whale heart
