Track Name: Drowsy
offering

only me i'm
closing my eyes
to see
void of water the
timpani peace
offering

only me

offering
only me i'm
closing my eyes
to see
the dreams i have for the
memory
of your breeding
(x2)
Track Name: Wings
morning comes
dreaming of new moons
and where our bones will rest
what will be in view

follow the dirt
follow the water
carrying the daisies we placed on your bed
and in your window you'll see me again
running off hidden looks
heavy hearts
you look like a sinner
caught you red handed
picking cherries if they're dark red

morning comes
staying up all night
wandered into your eyes
thinking of dreaming
thinking again

follow the dirt
follow the water
carry the daisies we placed on your bed
and in your window you'll see me again
running off hidden looks
heavy hearts
you look like a sinner
caught you red handed
picking cherries if they're dark red

counting on your dreams
curling up to sleep
wander through their bones
you can count on me

flowers will come again
if the sun is giving
never really looks the same

follow the dirt
follow the water
carrying the daisies we placed on your bed
in your window you'll see me again
running off hidden looks
and heavy hearts
looks like a sinner
caught you red-handed
picking cherries if they're dark red
Track Name: Veda
carrying around your shoes
hide behind the curtain
your hair will give you away
before your eyes do

woke up looking at me
hard to hold
feels new to breathe
pushing for a realm beyond
the one i sit in when im
messing around

no veda
dont cry
ill be there to say goodnight i'm
in you head
and on your mind
before light breaks
we have our whole lives

woke up
looking at me
hard to hold
feels new to breathe
pushing for
a realm beyond
the one i sit in
when i feel like
messing around

youre the only person
thats kept her promise to me
that we would be there for
each other til we couldnt be
we would be there for each other
til we couldnt be

i found light

woke up
looking at me
hard to hold
feels new to breathe
pushing for
a realm beyond
the one i sit in
when i feel like
messing around
Track Name: Vision
watching the roots in the woods
twisting around my ankles
take a step find
myths written in skin

chasing light
lips constrict like snakes
i slip again
again

holding onto a darker form
pass by me
harbinger
wasted
worlds away to watch it
part from me

chasing light
lips constrict like snakes
i slip again
again
roots purge my throat
water fill the host
let me wake again
again

holding onto a darker form
pass by me
harbinger
worlds away
wasted to watch it
rise from me
Track Name: Placenta
whisper to me
call to me

i'm not the way i once was
my eyes are always still
my soul it wanders from me
i wish to sleep

farewell (x4)

waken by mothers light
called on by mercy's tithes
have i died in my sleep
you will wake without me

waken by mothers light
called on by mercy's tithes
Track Name: Gestation
heart grows
two little fingers
first thing was you
with a green heart
give her my love and
can i lay
right by your side

eyes will hold the heart
bound by yours
rubies clouding
i'd say yours were real

pulling legs apart
something new
gestation
has come to view

eyes will hold the heart
bound by the look in yours
rubies clouding
i'd say yours were real

first thing i felt was you
first thing was you

eyes will hold the heart
bound by the look in yours
rubies clouding
i'd say yours were real

i'm alive
Track Name: She
parting from the night
you crept in my dreams
i felt sick
from my wake
upon my

whisper
the empty glow
your eyes
like glass
my realest gaze
slides down
spectrum of light
i was not able to see before

careful empty

i felt sick
bed ridden
now when i look
the light i see
hits your skin
leaves me powerless
leaves me

a whisper
the empty glow
your eyes
like glass
my realest gaze
slides down
spectrum of a light
i was not able to see before

i can see something now
i was blind to whats in you
i was blind to what lives in you

careful empty

whisper
the empty glow
your eyes
like glass
my realest gaze
slides down
spectrum of a light
i was not able to see before
Track Name: Mother Tongue
hand searches for your soul
feeling my fingers sink down
into your skull
dimensions twist and melt
turn to gold

wish the world would show up
falling back to the lake that held me
decompose
your body feeds the trees

hid our vessels
in colors
of jade and blue

light guide me under
longing again
for that weightless feeling
as my breath slips down
inside of me
thoughts now distant
light
starts to fade away
watch my chest rise
hold my head under
i fight to breathe

hid our vessels
in colors
of jade and blue

empty with
empty without you
in colors
of jade and blue
Track Name: Fetal
you said
hold the heart close
hidden
placed down
under your chest
is one
a heart

your heart

you said there's a heart
your eyes can see it in your chest
just watch it thud

now
you can grab so much

you said there's a heart
your eyes can see it in your chest
just watch it thud
