Lyrics

it's good to stop and rest for a while...but then move along, move along. i know what's waiting in these amber-colored octaves. a distillation of all my best defenses. a distillation of all your best defenses. worthy as a birdie in the bush with two hands. worth less than a cat with no master. worthy as a birdie in the bush with two hands. two hands. YOU'VE GOT A CLEAR SHOT AT MY WEARY EYE. i know what's waiting in these amber-colored octaves. it's what i sink with my battleship. it's what's kept in my graveyard. a thousand bodies buried and no marker. a thousand bodies buried and no marker.

Lyrics

ARC it's all an extension of the natural arc. and unless you lay with me, you won't know what i mean. you won't know what I mean. four, five, six, seven magnitudes of stars gone out. now a glorious dawn is descending. a glorious dawn is descending…do you know what i mean? harrier hawks and prairie falcons take wing upon your waking. and your namesake is unrivaled in her half-light. it's not half-right. will you rise and take the stand? with a bible under your right hand, now, your namesake is your rival in her half-flight. you saw the fatal flaw, and carry on somehow. you saw the fatal flaw, and carry on somehow. so fall forward, the catching is a sense of duty now. you saw the fatal flaw. you saw.

Lyrics

he came again, came to me with a new face. "WE ALL THOUGHT FOR SURE HE WAS DONE FOR!" but: older, all the more worse & wise for the wear. and, "where have you been all these years?" tell me, where have you been all these years? and from him comes a waterfall of true things: thunderstorms and torn off bird wings. he knows of my nameless ache, and how it grew to rule me, and how it all fell on deaf and dumb ears. and it'll all fall on deaf and dumb ears. he said: "darling, you are here for a reason. your only hope now is love. and if you let it, it will fill the cracks and spring the traps that you set in circles 'round your worn-out broken heart". "this road is so lonesome and slow." "but you will be set free when you know: you've been had by savage masters, jealousy and anger. don't you see? now love is all that's left." love is all that's left.
