Track Name: Idle

cannot hear it
cannot hear it coming
held in the humming
laid in the waiting

huddle near it
huddle near it holding
cold in your shivering
blank hesitating

love another
love another woman
lost in the brimming
warm in the morning

light, let into iris

heavy handed
heavy handed daily
day will you fail me
lord say it loudly

need to hear it
need to hear one something
nil know becoming
only recalling
own only nothing

still, be still

you will be idle
oh my, you are idle
oh my, to be idle
Track Name: Cornmouth

sit me down to talk again
put your hand up to my head
show me where to go

walk me through the path of men
hold your hands over my eyes
tell me all you know
lead me to the glow

meet me where the river bends
send two words towards my ears
but be sure you were heard
cause I am young and free and dead
moving for to feel my feet
red embers underneath

he’s got two in peru, three in Beijing
they got everyone
“what’s mine is what’s mine”

take it, take if you want it

van in a field, mouthful of corn
they got everyone
what’s mine is what’s yours

take it, take it I don’t want it anymore
Track Name: Come to Me
Come to Me

how can I love you when you are not here?
how can I hold you while drawing you near?
when will you come to me?
why won’t you come to me when I’m in need?

how can I leave you if you will not go?
how much longer must I keep letting you know?
I need you to come to me
I need you to come to me


I’ll come runnin’ blind the rest

i’ve done nothing
that is what I have done wrong
aging, baited and waiting
oh, how I’ve waited so long

for you to reach out for me
pull me into your chest
you’ll find when you come to me


I’ll come runnin’ blind the rest
Track Name: Herein Lies the Lack Thereof
Herein Lies the Lack Thereof

long gaze at the sun
distant yet warm, then I am
without it

great, grey gust of wind
rattles the oaks, then I am
without it
crow erupts in the wake
flies without thought, at once
I respect it

wine stains the new rug
burns well in the street, then I am
without it

but no, that’s not a shame

ice falls from the sky
blinds are drawn flush, then I am
without it

soft moans cling like a burr
remind me again, he is
within her

hard lines mark where they were
smiles of the then, now I am
without her

okay, that’s a shame
youth dissolved in flame
fourth new box of friends
more names to forget

can you tell if one is listening?
see the look quick change the eye
will isolation be forgiven, given nothing is the prize?

it all seems a private matter
ya, from time to time to time
reeks of wrong to seek the ladder
and call it mine, mine, only mine
Track Name: Questions for the Queen
Questions for the Queen

why did you do what you did?
how could you doubt that I could?
what’s this I hear about my eyelids?
and the lies you hid while they were closed?

you tend to kill what you tend to
I mean to never be mean to you
what’s this I hear about a near end to this?
and the years I’ll spend in the saddest scene?

I’ve questions for the queen
she has nothing for me
so many questions for that bird
im nothing to her

I meant to say what I meant instead said what shouln’t be said
now I’m beggin’ for bread, but only for me
what’s this I hear about the king of men?
and the legs laid before him, long and lean?
