Cold Fire

feverish admittedly, but the fire is a cold fire 

and I am wrong for sending chills up your spine 

and it gets late, with each breath you take 

as we burn cold, I wait 

close your mouth and bite your tongue 

you shouldn't say it out loud 

I can't be where you are 

you don't know what you do, do you 

and you shake from the lies you make 

as we burn cold, I wait 

as we burn colder 

feverish admittedly, but the fire is a cold fire

 


Shards

floating through voids, drift without life 

no ground to stand on 

feeling nervous all alone and I cant shake it 

is it supposed to last this long 

I don't know, I just want to go back 

floating through voids, drift without life 

through shards of space and time 

feeling nervous all alone

 


Again

the weary world waking in the fog 

hands held hard between the sheets, we sink below

I watched you drown me out 

and I'm weary too, caught beneath the haze 

fingers slip, I'm loosing grip and letting go 

I watched you drown me out 

hands held hard between the sheets 

tighter than they'll ever be again

 

 

Oneirica


we dream of the things that we see with our eyes wide open 

I've dreamt that I can't escape, I've dreamt of infinite space 

and you're there, in that dress from last year 

we don't have to wake up now, pull the shades down darling 

I've been something terrible, I've been your only constant 

I called on the phone when I was dying, the rings echoed forever

and you're there, with red lips and your dark hair 

my mind knows she's the only one 

and you're there, but only when I'm dreaming

 


My Being

open are the doorways with halls leading to halls that I walk 

walls lined with pictures, some entrancing, some blank 

I'm aware of all I am 

complex, the labyrinth we wander, not stray 

not bound by gods, we control our trail 

no beyond, no reason other than the virtue of my being

 


Lost Dog

my mind's a lost dog in your empty town 

I'm losin it, I'm so lost now 

in the moonlight away from home 

casting shadows that linger on 

my mind's a lost dog 

wandering through your empty town 

there ain't much to see around 

set loose on the concrete 

don't know where I'm headed or where I'll be 

and if you get her message, don't be alarmed 

I've never seen north avenue lit up by stars 

in the moonlight away from home 

casting shadows that linger on 

my mind's a lost dog 

wandering through your empty town 

there ain't much to see around 

the ground was cold 

but I made it through til the next morning 

feel the sun

 

Ought to Take

are you swooning, are you warm 

I don't wanna have to read your mind 

if you move your organs close to mine, I'll feel 

like I'm fadin into the light 

nothing else could ever cross my mind 

there's not an ounce of you I wouldn't take on me 

the way your hair hangs, brush across my face and 

I pull it back to see the look you cast at me with your eyes 

shed our layers, we're just skin and bones now 

your transparency is mine until the air escapes us 


the way your hair hangs, brush across my face and 

I pull it back to see the look you cast at me with your eyes 

shed our layers, we're just skin and bones now 

your transparency is mine until the sun is rising 

if you move your organs close to mine 

there's not an ounce of you that I wouldn't take 

we're alone, found ourselves 

I don't wanna wait for you to take the things you ought to take 

take you home, I know your spot 

I don't wanna wait for you to take the things you ought to take

 


Shrimp

never said I'm sorry to you 

we never said it, we never had to 

but that's all gone 

weighed down by the lunar pull 

Allison, it's not like you, I know 

a burdened mind, I understand 

another reason to take my hand just one last time 

taken by the waves 

stretched out thin, you're luminescent 

feel the ocean floor as we lay down upon it 

we looked up at all the stars 

like the first night on your rooftop, we lay 

it's not enough, I understand 

you can't control it, despite your plan 

but let's forget that now 


taken by the waves 

stretched out thin, you're luminescent 

feel the ocean floor as we lay our bodies upon it 

we go out and around where the oceans swallow the sun 

the moon pulls the waves that push the air in our lungs 

feel the ocean floor, lay down

 

Heaviest Heart

I saw a phantom standing in the rain 

a mirrored image where the street was wet 

and now I know it was all inside myself 

I'll reform my concepts, reset the mind 

the weight of what we've come to know so deeply 

it's what I carry, the heaviest heart 

the weight grows, but so do I 

burdensome, but it's tamed
