Track Name: shipwreck
when the boat went crashing on the shore
and you had thrown our hopes and sails and oars overboard
the land would tease with opportunities
for you and me to break and run free
but ooh how I implored you to explore new possibilities
that we might return to the sea
Track Name: 1918
it echoes through summery air
the dogs bark alarm
‘cause their scared something’s there
and you’ve got a similar fear
or so it appears
as it rings in your ears
and under the bed
stir the monsters that dance ‘round your head
they’ve got you locked in their sights
they’ve got you dead to rights…
the dogs were right
projected on silver lit screens
it’s 1918, it’s the first world war
she said, “you can project it on me”
but her light burns so bright
we can’t see what’s in store for us
from under the bed
climb the monsters that dance ‘round your head
they’ve got you locked in their sights
they’ve got you dead to rights…
the dogs were right
from under the bed
climb the monsters that dance ‘round your head
now you’ve got them locked in your sights
you’ve got them dead to rights…
just drag ‘em out into the light…
Track Name: catch fire
should we catch fire
we’ll drop to the ground
and roll ‘til our senses
put the fire out
should we take comfort
in dreams in the night
we’ll trust that the morning
will shed a clearer light
we’ll see with sober eyes
and wake to screams
of dreams dyin’
still as we lie
here still in the dark
there ain’t no conquest
grander than the heart
we’re shadowed by it
as dreams are dyin’
Track Name: embers
synapses they fizzle fire
televisions’ glow
with binary codes
set to explode
across the sky
firewalls and barbed wire
to keep the danger out
but the fuse moves so quick
flickering wick
across the sky
spark firework ignition
plume smoke umbrella sky
as we choke on good intentions
embers singe
the skin and eyes
Track Name: run, rabbit
run, rabbit, run
run, rabbit, run
until our lungs collapse at once
until our lungs collapse at once
run, rabbit, run
and when we reach our fortress
when we reach our fortress
we will torch the path behind us
we will torch the path behind
destroy all signs of
a means to find us
as tracks and trails will
melt and vaporize
Track Name: jetlag
yours is the lake
that I’m forever draggin’
hoping to find
our bodies aligned
mine is the trailer
that’s hitched to your wagon
drafting in tow
a burden to stow
but loaded…
loaded with love.
ours is the jet
that’s leaving us laggin’
with clipped tips of wings
to strum at heart strings
the baggage we carry
suspends overhead
and all our transmissions
in a little black box
that was never recovered…
Track Name: dying stars
we would scorch beneath the sun
in the heat of the disaster
and fuse us into one
and fuel our failed flight
breathe deep the light
breathe deep the light
shade your eyes
and breathe deep the light
we’ll collect the dying stars
to complete the constellation
and bate the moons of mars
to collide for shear delight
breathe deep the night
breathe deep the night
rest your eyes
and breathe deep the night
breathe deep the light
breathe deep the night
x our eyes
and breathe deep the light
Track Name: bury bruises
and now the night is crumbling to the sea
fluttering fragments douse the blue-green
‘til there was you and I
and the great divide
I’d wave and assure the coast was clear
save for a hole in the sky
and when we land
we’ll bury bruises in the sand
crush our bones
and lose all feeling
through the hands
you’d try to escape
but I would pin you to the shore
soon you would beg for more
Track Name: islands
we would be
we would be islands
when the water receded to sea
we would be
we would be islands
when the water revealed
the deepest truth
will we be
will we be islands
when the water recedes to the sea
will we be
will we be islands
when the water reveals
the deepest blue
