Track Name: Good News
Good news! I'm through trying to "make it." You? So soon?
Instead, I'll bet I stay inside this room, afraid of you.
& I'll only move when you do.
But you never say a word;
you just spread across the dirt,
and I cover you with earth.
The sound it makes to move across the lake,
like scraping chains.
I follow now--it's always been about the drowning out.
How long until you stay down?
But you always have the words,
so sweetly poised, rehearsed.
They echo from your church.
Track Name: Consistency
Chelsea, I called to say hello
Chelsea, I left you a note
but you don't reply
no, you don't reply
and I don't think I mind
(alright)
consistency, I beg
diplomacy, your hand I shake
but you don't comply
why don't you comply?
and I don't think I even mind
you changed your tone,
you cleared your throat
said, "I dreamt you in shades of red & blue."
Track Name: The Chorus and the Verse
cyclical, I sit alone and listen for a tone,
I wait for you
predictably, I crawl away, and listen for a break inside your tune
I do
so I took apart the chorus and the verse
it made it worse
this place is not a prison cell, it's grocery lists and pictures on a shelf
but I live less than I pantomime,
I wait and drag my feet, I pass the time
I stay inside
but I'm tired of living like I'm half alive
so here's goodbye.
Track Name: Bargain/Bruise
all of my life, shining the light
thoughtless and obtuse, I'd call for you--but what did that do?
begin as I might, if you turn your sight, for a few thousand nights
if you cut me loose--I'll bargain, I'll bruise

the heart is doing what it should
don't news like that feel good?
we made it through the woods

good luck giving way to a life that won't change
crawling on the ice, then falling through
well, I'm sinking, too
a lifetime ago, kid on the ropes,
safe inside your room, you said "don't move,"
but I left then, too

the time that I spent locking doors
cover windows up with boards
and duck down on the floor

it's not like you say it to say it all again.
Track Name: Asleep
it's a short and unfettered life
a prayer I won't realize
some words that I can't recite
practice perfect patterns that capture the light

just how alone am I?
do you think what I did was right?
does my voice even come across?
forget what I thought, shake my albatross

I'm so much like you
I don't know what to do
but I pretend I do
if I tell you to go, don't go while I'm asleep.
