Track Name: Fold
you can't get right
in grips of dreams true eyes see
and dead wounds breathe quietly

words won't leap off
you turn pages and faceless sing:
“Miss Vespertine, fold your wings”

'cause you saw what you are, you are nothing
sea to sea is empty and clean
but what was lost is not lost
Track Name: Wakes
tell me if I bleed right, smells sweet, feels nice
happy to be two here, who's near?
people asking from what comes love, comes us?
by design or dumb luck, spending years

tell me what you dream of, soles bare, knees rough
has a face like some clown, whose frown?
sad how that is so true, old news, old tune
funny how what holds you holds you down

at a loss, how many games played? oh love
all the while becoming an old fool
who's to blame, wasn't it something? these days
all the same all the same

I'll escape, something wakes in me

eyes hide what only you hear
whispers feel so near
they: sweet advice that drowns out
oh, how they won't slow down
and at night, dark sounds

face in clouds, sediment under heel
see I've been thinking up something real
all your lines coming up frozen
all your minds unopened
Track Name: Linger
rising from young nights
words drop from tongues like
“who dreams?
who dreams”

heads rest on death beds
questions left unsaid
“who dies?
who dies
who dies”

comes and goes
all the endless running
and you might hear something
on the wind

who becomes a shade?
lingers a memory
whose lithe legs on grass blades?
dancing 'til morning

whose blood runs through life lines?
palms up for reading
whose leaves turn on pines?
color the sunshine

come, hello, go

bathed in the same shh
kum ba yah and the rest of it
should I run when I come down to you?
isn't peace near?
come awake it's the wait I fear
all the same all the same

come, hello, go
