Track Name: Through A Coil
nice to see you change your mind
and collect the morning light

take the time to realign
all the edges of your life

pulsing underneath each day
are the ways we feign control

doubt and comfort undulate
in rotation through a coil

Nice to see the rain tonight
falling off you through the dark

held the ways you thought you’d change
and we cried inside the car

Oh the lives we never live
And the ones we have to come

sing and weep concurrently
in rotation through a coil

dawn will break
and cross your face
I need you more than i can say

night will fall without resolve
in rotation through a coil

Nice to see you realize
You are constantly alive
Track Name: Plexiglass
did you find your way into a dream
or did you end up falling somewhere in between
singing some nostalgic melody
it sounded soft and innocuous and put me back to sleep

you’ll die of blood loss if not boredom
it’s the only deal in town
cough and hock and still it sits there
On the people’s collective tongue

It’s located behind the eyes and
fiending for a whirr or glow
hate the world for what it gives me
hate myself for wanting more

Sequences of memory
through sheets of plexiglass

Splinter off in front of me
and burn out in the past

the romance thickens and congeals
it loves that you can’t look away
content finds you and it motors
A certain oscillating pain

Sequences of memory
through sheets of plexiglass

Splinter off in front of me
and burn out in the past

I want to hear you sing to me
and dance on hardwood floor

I’m dying to feel anything
i haven’t felt before
Track Name: And Elsewhere
Gone walking in town on the wet hot concrete and wandered up a thought - did you know it was coming
i can see you crying in the halftone dawn and I can hear your whisper in the cold night’s song
I think of your life on the trans bay train my hands on your coarse burnt orange alive skin under a silver highway spider web canopy of sound I’m a vessel for your pain rain water in the ground

i know peace ripples in spotted white particles of memory and touch rushed over through the senses
down a sieve fist falling back gone in the vapor running off through matter it’s nothing it’s everything
and you and i come from the same humid air
we belong in the present and elsewhere
Track Name: Rubber Band
just this year i
pulled my head up
got to know the
soft grey air

Trading back and
forth in tandem
grief and love
work to repair

won’t you
come over
stretch around me
and stay

holding like a
rubber band does
tension keeps us
in place

just today i
let myself say
death does not have
fault to give

trust tomorrow
brings another
Bright and violent
chance to live
Track Name: Dovetail
I want to pray and renew
my devotion to choose
may we wake and arrive
within a garden of Junes
all while they pose and recite
in ways the gatekeepers tend to do

oh to be wrought and reused
while the dawn starts to move
crawling into the day’s
morning partisan blues
yet the commitment remains
to tend to love and everything it imbues

I think I just need something on which to rely
something rested between the ground and sky

long live the violets
compassion will reign

as long as I’m human
I’ll call for your name

spots on the ocean
foam and dissolve

bound like a dovetail
to the love in us all

i’d rather rot in the sun
than recline with the scum
I’d take a decade in pain
Before a day being numb
yet I resolve to this day
to reach to you as though we’re woven as one

long live the violets
compassion will reign

as long as I’m human
I’ll call for your name

spots on the ocean
foam and dissolve

bound like a dovetail
to the love in us all
Track Name: Name Around My Neck
scarlet and grey keep me under your shade
and sink with the world, my boring disdain

focus instead on the blood in my head
that falls from my nose, in candy red pools

tracing links of cable chain,
like memory that’s taking shape

i only trust that the future is dust
for now i exist in tides of your love

a rush of energy
is coursing through
the name around my neck
and circulates
the name around my neck

scarlet and grey will you take me away
and leave with the world my lazy disdain

i only trust that the future is dust
for now i exist in tides of love

a rush of energy
is coursing through
the name around my neck
and circulates
the name around my neck
Track Name: In Repose
young weightless and unperspiring
is how i will lay in repose

and i’ll forget just what
anyone ever said to me

I’ll be someone else entirely

so come dance with me while I lay in repose

now that my insides are removed
There’s nothing I have left to prove

so help yourself to the open bar
we can catch up and talk
with people who resonate in my life

it’s a dream to see you while i lay in repose

impatient and uninspired
I wont count on a rose tinted life

I’ve got the rest of all
time to learn this non-physical world
it’s equally strange and familiar

so come dance with me while
it’s a dream to see you
I’m completely free now
that i lay in repose
Track Name: Sensory Field
safe to say i remember that day
light circled through the room and bent to your shape

and I still hear you singing Alsatian cousin
Heaven seems lower in moments like this

that year sustains in a perennial ring
a broken season, the promise of spring

it’s like one more finger on the walls of your throat
oh the weight we accept to remain in this world

I’m in a field of senses
I’m in a network of pain
and it’s cool as rain on the 5 interstate
I’m never changing, I like it this way

who’s to say that your heart is this way
Recline into yourself, a permanent state

And I still hear you singing Alsatian cousin
Heaven seems lower in moments like this

I’m in a field of senses
I’m in a network of pain
and it’s cool as rain on the 5 interstate
I’m never changing, I like it this way
