Hourglass 03:09
what has happened to my little moon all the bleach girls painted black at the railroad track i lay on my back and i sleep alone all the apples fall but do they have to fall ? down on every headstone ? so i'll take an hourglass and watch it move and when the time has passed i'll come for you we all have our time have our selfish time but time is time and time runs out
Waterway 02:51
at night i crawl across the bedroom and sigh cuz i can't stay there anymore i keep one eye out on the waterways and look thru tunnels trying to find a glint, a glow that i can swim to to say good night just when i want to but i'm still out here when the days end distractions take me all around today i'll see it all as a silhouette and watch rain fall under the bridge but i would trade away these illusions just to get outside my head soon i'll wonder where the days went if i can even give them thought
Fingers 03:18
i don't mind what you decide i just want what's mine better now but not before i just don't sleep anymore and i don't dream i don't dream anything we were born into a storm but now that has settled down where will you go to be alone and crack every bone in your fingers ? it's in your nature
some will ride on and some will run away the path grows wider with the ending of the day sought in silence and lost with everything like the comet i'm born to leave the ring and i'll remain with this coffin in the rain i cannot say how long i'll have to wait i'm out of my kingdom the angels have run out on me thorn to finger this rose is all i need and i'll remain with this coffin in the rain i cannot say how long i'll have to wait ..til dawn begins to break ?
i bend any way i can and i pretend like it's a story i'll stop when i lose my balance where ? when ? at any time i could lose the right to use my body but i'll know your glow like it was mine
Boil 01:56
would you boil me or water me down wake up next to me in another town cuz i'll come right back and get you i've been born and i'll go sometime and maybe then you will show or you'll ditch again i have always been a quiet mess looking back at you in your favorite dress but you don't know what i was thinking
Werewolves 03:27
werewolf come sleep at my side i know you have no dreams to hide for the moon will steal from every star to keep you up throughout the night werewolf just close your eyes and feel the wind blow through the chimes hear the iron lullaby that brings your blood where it runs with mine and the sun will come to shoot a silver gun every single dawn till the end of all
you see yourself when you look at the ground and there's no one else rain comes down like rocks no i never forgot because my skin gets hot only an arrow knows where it will go so i pull and shoot like i've always done skulls will speak in tongues the sea will have to soak no there's nothing wrong as long as skin gets hot and as long as skin stays hot
Shadowgoing 03:18
i forgot the reason for an empty hand to feel the slipping of the sand to test the weather and erode once i heard someone behind me who left me here inside the factory but it was just my shadow going once i turned you think i'd learn how to be alone i'll be sure to make myself scarce to watch my lantern float above i won't send up another one if you ask i'll tell you that it's just some lights go out alone
