Track Name: ii
today I woke to find my arms
a half an inch beside
where I thought i'd left them

three days ago I noticed
that the slope of my feet
was 13 degrees off

and I would like
nothing more but for your standing by me
but I feel scared
that there isn't room because i am beside me these days

there is a wildness in me
born before I was born
a subtle creak in my bones

voices from past seeds
begging to be heard, their teeth and tongues
try to sing me home

and I would like
nothing more but for your standing by me
but I feel scared
that there isn't room because i am beside me these days
Track Name: iii
lukewarm pearlwhite mist
gauzy laughter and then
a

i’m ambitionless
but for to sit at this bar
with

let’s be
let’s give a little
let’s let it be a little
let’s be
let’s give a litte
let’s let a little be

viscera serene
all the little bits
of

i’m ready to quit
except for
if
Track Name: v
the night's become the church of us
holy, holy
my skin's a beating leather drum
hold me, hold me

my heart's asleep
that sounds weak, i know
please do not wait for me
i'm always late

let's us be, be, be
i see you see me

the day's become a pent-up song
sing me, sing me
your skin is delicate, i know
i'll go slowly

your heart's awake and ready to go
you should have somebody
who's on time

let's us be, be, be
i see you see me

holy, holy
Track Name: vi
you might have thought that you did right by her
all that she needed was a mother

you might have felt under-appreciated
all that she needed was for you to love her

you speak in tongues and somnolent glances
you are so glorious when you take a chance
and there are plenty of us whose problem is feelin' it all at once
and there are plenty of us who simply need to be touched

i might have thought that I did right by you
all that you needed was an answer

i couldn't ask for you to come here
all that i needed was for you to be there

you speak in tongues and somnolent glances
you are so glorious when you take a chance
and there are plenty of us whose problem is feelin' it all at once
and there are plenty of us who simply need to be touched
Track Name: vii
did you lose your day again
did you lose your compass
and forget what it means to be a man
what does man even mean

did you forget that you're free
did you think that you could simply
take it all out on me
never had to be mean

i was born a woman
to bear the brunt of
hoping to die a small child
with someone to run to

you, i never wanted to
rely on someone to
be the compass to

i forgot my morning
i forgot my reason
to get up and try it all again
all i ever wanted was to be

i forgot i can be free
i thought that i should just simply
take it all out on me
all i ever wanted was you and me

i was born a woman
to bear the brunt of
hoping to die a small child
with someone to run to

you, i never wanted to
rely on someone to
be a compass to
