FLAX

leave him as a boy
his laugh divides the day in two
let him dream of birds 
i wish i was more like him
instead i'm shaking in the sun
he came in a wave
his wings were full of songs
white and unafraid
i wish i had known him then
i wish i was more like him
anyway i'd love to see you there 
outside that place someday 
and secure i hope to see you there 
outside yourself someday 
anyway i hope i see us there
outside that place someday 
and secure i'd love to see us there 
outside ourselves 
someday

 

SEVENS

your machine gun 
eyes fire 
off into the night 
crystal hour 
across the city 
i can feel your white 
sinking in me
i have never known anyone
i'll sew these bones 
before the dawn
asleep in gardens 
geometric 
my heart collected in the vine 
adorned with flowers 
while i waited 
for the world 
to flood my mind
i have never known anyone
i'll sew these bones 
before the dawn

 

ACID AND EVERYTHING

until he drives you mad 
until you bury his head 
fill up the holes in your room 
use the rays of your eyes 
it's much more difficult 
than it sounds
everything acid and sad 
everyone distant and hard 
use the voice of a swan
you couldn't hear after 
you couldn't hear after it all

 

ANIMALS

i see you moving like an animal 
and through your walls the horses come 
and i cannot communicate with them
or perhaps we have never met
i see you and you have nothing left
i've been missing all the bonfires
you said we had the things we have
margaret you'd make a perfect bride today
i went deaf in the parking lot
when your voice came through my mouth
like a ray comes through the dark
i cannot recognize myself 
my skeleton moves without me now
i see you and i am jealous of
i am jealous of
margaret you have the brightest eyes
margaret you'd make a perfect bride today

 

SPINE

thread around my arms 
pierces my mouth 
man arise from the lake 
find there is nothing left
spine splits and shifts
from dusted days 
her perfume is sick 
gun powder sings 
you're beautiful 
silver apples 
like carrion

 

All lyrics from the self released EP Acid and Everything2010.
