Thawing out in plainclothes But nobody knows You thresh about the sequence at the finish line Give them all of your hard earned but you never ride Parade then place your savings on a nothing prize Our home’s upon your podium by empty hide Guess flesh and blood’s replaceable if not equine I’ll sweat about the sequence at collection time Parade and race my true self as you’re nothing prize My future’s on that podium you desperate liar Thawing out in plainclothes But nobody knows

Four more sleepwalks then abyss Flat out chancer might night swim Waves of apparitions’ servants of the self True linings pining rare pitiless silver thread In the throes of the beast, in museums hanging me, so sorry, where were we, I’ll just leave Crowds of admirers never friends Makes it so easy to pretend They take and try and never stare Play pass around the crowns they share We’re so connected, so alone Come full bodied in glamour pose I’ll sleep it off, those power cuts Your eyes give me the failure rush People please endlessly, patiently, I love you, bad side too, I suffered through, all for you Kill domain think humane, nothing new, draw a line, pick a side, never mine, that’s the true Shift me into new paradigms Where there’s no such thing as better times Where clairvoyants tell you everything you want to here Where ornate glimmers can be killed but reappear We’re so connected, so alone We’re so connected, so alone We’re so connected, so alone We’re so connected, so alone

Want to be your word of mouth, Everything you hear about, Sowing seeds, in bellies, no low key, front page feeds. Quick-fuck lifeboat, stay afloat That little flower inside grows Hands on ears, there’s grown-ups here, cum on me, with some decency. Read the last lines first, every word, Of every book, that was ever wrote We stood so still could feel the world spin, Now we know every ending, Like the search said fill my head With all the things I’d ruin instead Your stage wings, your cut scene, remove me, surgically. Read the last lines first, every word, Of every book, that was, ever wrote Tried to guess the worst ones You were never wrong Read the last lines first, every word, Of every book, that was ever wrote So, what.

Duvet Day 03:19
You brim with glimmer rings when my clouds fall apart When I’m a snowman melting all scared of the sun You’re my kind of shiny one I would fully keep My prized queen marble I would never compete with My fairy horse, with jelly horns, and sugary teeth, Eats people beans, made ovenly, pre-melon sweets, And silly treats, like rosary, let’s have duvet days Stay away from everyone, every day’s a school day, anyone? You’re still the well I wish in every time I speak Trust me trapezing mountains in my mind to sleep No one can figure themselves out so why should we Just be the flocks of yellow birds that circle me And I remember dates like boys aren’t supposed to Wish I’d be brave like you like girls aren’t supposed to Yeah so maybe this life was just for finding you I wouldn’t change a thing I’d do it all again My fairy horse, with jelly horns, and sugary teeth, Eats people beans, made ovenly, pre-melon sweets, And silly treats, like rosary, let’s have duvet days Stay away from everyone, every day’s a school day, anyone? With skin made custom fit So, we can both wear it You’re still the shimmering when my clouds fall down hard When I’m puddles before the glory of the sun You’re my shiny yes the one I will always keep I wouldn’t change a thing I’d do it all again My fairy horse, with jelly horns, and sugary teeth, Eats people beans, made ovenly, pre-melon sweets, And silly treats, like rosary, let’s have duvet days Stay away from everyone, every day’s a school day, anyone?

Stared down space like a broken clock Spent lightyears with my afterthoughts Because I don’t want to talk anymore More feels Less Hz Borrowed all your super powers Saved the world had them build you a tower Travelled infinity like a spaceship Only to find no one else exists More feels Less Hz More kills Less curves I was free to leave I just never could So I built some stairs deep in the woods Let go of the rail unto ascend The feeling was empty but so intense Guess I’ll be down my rabbit hole Collaging get well soon cards Yeah I thought I’d find you happiness I’m often wrong like so much else

Angel Made 02:59
Feral children fill your head Eat the wheels you reinvent So I’ll cover mine in breathing holes I’ll let them in and call me home Somewhere safe, When they need it Come on cry I crave the guilt My throats in lumps held up on stilts Preserved in jars my bones of milk A brittle frame, what’s left of it Make me feel like you need it Make me feel like I’m needed Honestly come pilot me I’m never doing much Paired with shade my weather vanes are just paper trails Leading to some old Camus my will makes the commute. Angel maker Guess I never knew you then I’ll never be alone again An underground celebrity At least the walls listen to me Or so they tell me Son you’ve come Such a long way Honestly come pilot me I’m never doing much Paired with shade my weather vanes are just paper trails Leading back to old Camus I’ll make the communion, communion. Knocks the wind right out of me and I’m good You have a heart for breaking so you should Give him room to kill in peace if you could, could.

You learned all my cheat codes, Set my level up insane mode Remembered special combos To blow my opponents away They say I’m old fashioned But this cake has thirty candles That I’ll blow out another time Probably when I have a wish that’s mine If we’re all just computers Should have programmed my emotions To process so much quicker than Someone who just doesn’t Here’s the text hugs I will send I’m sure you’ll take them for a spin Promised I wouldn’t get scared stiff If I found them inside a ditch or in a bin Make me god Make me god Make here god Make Here god Make it not only for someone Here’s the text hugs I shall send I’m sure you’ll take mine for a spin Promised I wouldn’t get scared stiff If I found them inside a ditch or in a bin My life with a for sale sign on Tells me nothing is without cost I was in hospital that night Yeah ran every single red light You’re as much of a teacher With the touch of a healer You’re the lens of every microscope That shows me what is hope Make me god Make me god Make here god Make Here god Make it not only for someone You’re as much of a teacher With the touch of a healer You’re the lens of every microscope That shows me what is hope Let’s binge watch the world fall apart Because nothing is ever really ours We’ll lose out faith along the way But I’ll still believe you anyway Couldn’t tell where your love came from When I was happened upon I hope what I send finds you well The loudest noise comes from the emptiest vessel

Coeval Ari 04:46
We’re two proud empty toast glasses stood poured away Two fish in bags won at fairs from both our hometowns And when no one’s around, we’ll just swim around, around Best left entwined weaved within our neat cotton cells To share calm infinities with no one else We’ll laugh from the darkness too proud to admit, admit Our bodies speak in tangled pleads Frenzy feeds round hazel wreaths We dreamt a house through careful words Where laughter poured through doors unheard They found me there, I was kissing you Your bursting eyes holding me close When no one cares the ground listens, but I can’t begin to say How much to love I’m thinking of has come to tip the scales And if you are a dream, I’d have you every night, night Emerging cleaned through parallels found guarded in few Your beauty carved simple truths like who was made for who Of that I’m thankful you knew and yeah, I do too, too Our closeness bleeds through teeth that leaks Our bound trappings and misery Some vague feelings I wish to reach There’s only one map I’ll need Its crystal clear my scenery Now understands its purity, more deeply Oh, glorious comedy hoped you beloved in me Milk on your jewellery like Cupid’s best archery Glorious comedy hoped you beloved in me Milk on your jewellery like Cupid’s best archery

Nobody: Me: 04:45
There’s a common stroke of luck in the frame Behind the pressures of the retrograde It’s a blessing in disguise they all say Tell me the heart and brain are two the same So, give all my deepest love to everyone Lost and dangerous, nothing major well, Hope I was a good thing, you were never not Some kinda worth your time thing, you were never not Three sprinters through a flash of the shakes Two recluse of the silver age You know I never want it to change Declare that love and truth are both the same There’s a crimewave staged by cupid’s archery Glass of water longing for the sea We’re trapped between two winning sides Wish someone could show me mine My love you say the strangest things Welkin starry eyed larrikin I’m a Catharine wheel of crowns all drowning Cast of death mask, all but frowning All things sacred, blanket statement. So, give all my deepest love to everyone Hope I was a good thing You were never not Some kinda worth your time thing You were never not We’re trapped between two winning sides Wish someone could show me mine My love you say the strangest things Welkin starry eyed larrikin Trapped between two winning sides Wish someone could show me mine My love you say my favourite things Welkin starry eyed larrikin

Pleased to see me hardly, Guess I’m cleft lip, club foot modelling, For anyone who’s watching, So take me carnival mirrors, Bend and warp, make me pretty. When stars forget to shine, And all these cells replaced aren’t mine, I lose them all the time, Endorphins lay demised, Such a pretty way to die, Beautiful way to die. Yeah it hurts but it’s ok I think, Found the answer to all things, In our own divine nothing, Where no one’s struggling, No one’s struggling, No one’s struggling, No one’s struggling. Overwhelmed by the crush, Through halls so clean and clinical, Stripped white with chemicals, X miles between X marks, where we’re making our clean starts, Making our clean starts. Yeah it hurts but it’s ok I think, Found the answer to all things, In our own divine nothing, Where no one’s struggling, No one’s struggling, No one’s struggling, No one’s struggling. I’m not sorry about my body, I’m not sorry about my pussy, I only wish it wasn’t mine, So many thanks my friend, You know I never cared, You know I never cared. Now I'm struggling, Now I'm struggling, Now I'm struggling, Now I'm struggling.

Tyson 04:19
You should be famous too, for falling in love with you It’s ok to feel like storms, I promise to be the calm before Reborn inside a downpour, we are a miracle to bear… Witness to Witness to Collapsed like ideas Poor Tyson’s trachea What a sugar bowl All full of circling ants Doing a weird dance In some dream about The birthplace of clouds Where life just turned around What a sugar bowl All full of circling ants Doing a weird dance In some dream about The birthplace of clouds Where life just turned around

When you come back to life Bring me back something nice Give them choice and they’ll change tides Make new shifts in paradigm And I will swear on lives That are in no way mine In a crash tense sign I felt your light Miss your turn western concerns I’ve got life lessons to unlearn But this time for different reasons So, give me sand, I’ll draw a line No more time let’s pick a side And I will swear on lives That are in no way mine In a crash tense bind I felt your light So, I held a sign by the roadside, saying, Anywhere, anytime love, anywhere, anytime love, I’ll bring you back something nice
