Track Name: Turning Leaves
It lingers
Singed fingers
Cold bodies
Melodies

Whispered moans
Soft hellos
Quick goodbyes
Stay awake

Watch the day
Feel the night
Lose myself
In mind’s eye

Comes a time
Pressed flowers
Turning leaves
Fields of green
Track Name: Variation
These hawks circle like
A spinning toy top
These vultures circle like
The tick of a clock

The water is cool like
A frozen corpse
The water is hot like
Cherry Jell-O

It all repeats with variation
Your lips are my soft salvation
It all repeats with variation
Summer sun with no vacation

Honey is sweet like
Failing out of school
Honey is yellow like
Killer bees

God is my witness like
Daytime TV
God is my killer like
Unchecked anxiety

It all repeats with variation
Your lips are my soft salvation
It all repeats with variation
Summer sun with no vacation

It all repeats with variation
Your hips are my close relation
It all repeats with variation
Summer fun without vacation
Track Name: Periphery
I am a periphery
It’s all blurred now
Lock me in
Lose the key

I feel it inside
Like a buzzing hive
It’s real to me
You can’t see

Measured in weight
Invisible to you
It’s all heavy
Yet I’m floating
Track Name: My Nature
These clothes are so heavy
My eyes can’t focus on
What I’m hearing is just
An emptiness I can’t

One foot then another
Sway me again and again
We’re trees taking root
But I’m falling again

I’m smashing my phone
Then driving away
And I’ll say I won’t be back
But that’s in my nature

The air tastes so bitter
My thoughts smell like sulphur
I can’t will myself to move
I’m terrified and stupid

Overconfidence will kill me
I can’t walk the walk
So I’ll just lie here with you
And hope I don’t wither
Track Name: Flavored Soul
If I ever get cancer of the blood
And they drip chemicals in me
I will take up chain smoking
Like my grandfather did

If I ever own a cute dog
I will pet it with love and care
And I’ll never let it die
That would just be unfair

This berry smoothie tastes like
A piece of my flavored soul
Effervescent and tumbling
Through all of these neon lives

If I ever can’t hold you again
I will be as empty as my brain
If I ever feel awake
I will stop drinking coffee

This berry smoothie tastes like
A piece of my flavored soul
Effervescent and tumbling
Through all of these neon lives
