penelope



oh Penelope
are you filled with air
swallowed oxygen
that makes you float up?
is it dropsy?
will your lungs swell?
it’s depressing me
to see you struggle

oh penelope
are you filled with air
swallowed oxygen
that makes you float up?
is it dropsy?
will your lungs swell?

it’s depressing me
to see you struggle
i’m treading water with my oars
glass galeons anchored, oceans floor
i’m diving down with all my gear
in search of treasure, para me corazon

take you to the forest
let you feel the raindrops falling down
seeping through your redscales
eliminate the faucet
eliminate the need for water
replace it with a safe shell

don’t wanna see you floating upside down
on the top of the bowl when i
come round to visit you
don’t wanna see you floating upside down

no girl
need you there
ooh release that air
(i’m treading water with my oars
glass galeons anchored, oceans floor
i’m diving down with all my gear
in search of treasure, para me corazon)

take you to the forest
let you feel the raindrops falling down
seeping through your redscales
eliminate the faucet
eliminate the need for water
replace it with a safe shell
if they summon the rains now
are you gonna rise?

if they summon the rains now
are you gonna rise?

tres


another tear in the sea
another drop in the ocean
after the fall
waiting to sink

oh, solo mio

it's all right now
come closer
talk to me

oh, solo mio
sah fasa gan

there's a definite feeling
buried down
wrecking itself
taking you with me

the more they was
the more they were
the more they wander from

there's a terrible reason...

soaked

toss it away
into the water
into the fire

some minor thought fell from the sky
nobody wants that either
paper model plane glued to your spine
severing off your feelings
it might've faded
you decide
hell of a night
bat of an eye
you started screaming blue murder, true
it's so you and you're soaked through
you took them all
you closed the bar without me
you chose the fall

syracuse

i step down into sand
water carries us from here
i'm fightin' this assignment
i'm wishin' we fall into the well
i'm wishin' we fall into the world
i missed your monotone
i missed you... far away...

whatever the thing that set you up
set you off and down again
until he's spared no reason
what he doesn't know
could fit inside a thimble

bloods on fire

brain to head. what is that for?
vein to vein. torn and sore
carpet so thick and worn
blanketed, dark, and warm

break the bed, burn the floor
heat to head. twisted. sore
accident. never warned
can't explain. nevermore

calm yourself
bloods on fire
it's not in the spark that's not in your eye
like we used to talk
it's not in the phrase that's not in the language
that we used to talk
not in the face, you missed me. there
it's not in the science that we didn't learn
when we used to talk
sit outside, penètance, just
just let me know, please say the words

i'm alright, what was that sound?
woke me up, now you're around
pick me up, drag me around
don't forget to breathe now

calm yourself
bloods on fire

we all forgot
we're all lost in autumn

it's not in the dead shocks that dropped underneath us
when we used the car
it's not in the strings we didn't pull to move you around the floor
where are you now?
pacing a faceless maw somewhere vague
you're not outside. you're not inside. you're not anymore
where did you go?
here's to the pranks we never pulled
and never will

lyon

i'm headed to the ditch
to take my fifteenth leap
gonna be out of touch
once i carry our legs
backward sweeps the tide

i'd take you to the bridge
but the bridge has seen better days
i'd take you out to the park
we don't know who's working there tonight

pave the way for the manta-ray
pave the way for the manta-ray

i wish that you were here
we'd have a tea party to celebrate
drive a cop car into the lake
hold our breath for two long boring days

(pave) sometimes wish (the) there was
(way) a slide out (for the) my window
(manta-ray)
sometimes wish there was a flume ride at wonderland
(pave) that way, (the) no one's gonna
(way) steal your (for the) wallet
(manta-ray)
buried in the sand under your blanket

(pave) sometimes wish (the) there was
(way) a slide out (for the) my window
(manta-ray)
sometimes wish there was a flume ride at wonderland
(pave) that way, (the) no one's gonna
(way) steal your (for the) wallet
(manta-ray)
buried in the sand under your blanket

(move her out of that)
(move her out of that)
(move her out of that) hot burning sun
(move her out of that)

and (move) i'll take you, (her out)
take you with me (hot burning sun)
to the deep end

sender

shoes crack where you walk
settle down
inside. outside. amazing
cut it back
get in some clean fesh air
tongue tied. couldn't talk
haven't lost. haven't cured at all
and when you see a boat come
in a straight line
you know it's going straight down
and then you feel like a flower sender
lender, like you
nothing to see here
cloud tank given off
watered down
stick side outside
the Razing
wasn't cool. wasn't fair at all
and when you see the big crack in the sunlight
you know it's over somehow
and then a pinhole sky expodes out
ball of fire
supernova falls down on you

acute angles dived my
path that i had lost...

i close my eyes...

fortress


too long til fall. sick summer in bed
you and a lazy mood
10 times the fall. spread, sacked, and i've failed
nobody move
nobody move

to far (long) to fall. sat shiver in bed
you and a test of will
too many fallen, too many failed
nobody move
nobody move

days with the light off, freezing
you and i. uneasy. livid

stop its too late
i'm feeling frustrated
i see no sign of fortress...

safe as a cootie wootie with you
never pretend the chill
too many shadows, too many sails
nobody Move
nobody Move

summer is only winter with you
how can you really feel?
2 of another. none of a pair
nobody move
nobody move

another delay. too many hassles
where do we go? how do we follow?

crutch


it kicks in like an ugly sound
and i'm split divides me
skull collides
such a long way down
such a big big bad
such a bright white light
rubber crutch lands so hard

i got to know the way - today
'cause you fly with me again - away

this memory of you holds more
than a photograph
it's much more than a book of
old pictures locked away
without a name

some sit down
let the rest decide
over what divided you
besides, it's a long time now
yea, so far away
no one cares too much over
what happened to you

i got to know the way - today
'cause you fly with me again - away

it's much more than a stack of old
pictures locked away, dalhia
