Track Name: doldrums
are you in my head? pretending to be sleeping
something that you said - a lie you promised keeping
no one that i know sails the squalling doldrums
everyone i know will lay until the storms pass

tell me who you've loved that's honestly intriguing
now are they your friend? a liars endless reeving
no one that i know sails the squalling doldrums
everyone i know will lay until the storms pass

no one thought you knew the devil had a child
something let you through - a crying face arises

i'm the door, you're the light - can we pretend this is all right?

are you in my head? cos in my bed you're sleeping
are you in my bed? cos in my head you're sleeping
are you in my head? cos in my bed you're sleeping
are you in my bed? cos in my head you're sleeping
Track Name: the chair
fall asleep on my shoulder
part of me leaves your door
like a dark face in my brain
hard to see light inside my lungs
if i start breathing right

down that road
golden hair
invisible
in my mind
serpent spine
clavicle
in her eye lids
i see the chair

i see the chair
Track Name: dream
i fell asleep promising to call in the morning
i dream, i dream, i dream holes in the forest
and staring up i find dark eyes in the sky
and falling back my head eclipses the sight-
memories i keep, shrouding the night, refusing to fight
who is this? god i'll try but i will shake until i wake up

your eyes are gray your light is fading out now
you dream, you dream, you dream through caves of your heart
and hold it in until your chest explodes
and falling back your head eclipses the sight-
memories i keep, shrouding the night, refusing to fight
who is this? god i'll try but i will shake until i wake up

until i wake up
Track Name: the mask
i feel the velvet pass my face its texture keeping me awake gently reminding me to wait
my fingers graze against the wall counting the marks and holes but all my days spent rolling in a haze

is this not a stone i saw? is this not a face i saw? your voice is my only call: a bird in the window
a bird in the window

you said just see him once a day providing only what i say and kill him if he won't obey
a plate of bread a bowl of sand i'll move as quickly as i can the creek continue as i stand

is this not the door i watch? is this not the morning watch? your chains are a raking dog- a bird in the window
a bird in the window

the sun descends upon your hand the vision gasping i can't stand can't find the words just wait and stare
and as i dream they float away like puzzle pieces from the clay picture i kept except it fades

i felt you rising in my gut
ceasing the seasons keep me up
and in my dreams i hold you out
clenched in my arms but i can't stop
oh how i kept you in the dark
oh how you keep me in the dark
a bird in the window, no
a bird in the window
Track Name: dark dove
i've been asking the walls to come down for me
show me the difference mine haunts the morning
painted skeleton prize in a dark white horse points
show me the difference mine haunts the morning
like a dark dove

are you wasting your time? are you conscious and brave? are you far from your grave?
are you holding me tight? are you breaking me down? are you fond of my name?
like a dark dove
Track Name: coldest morning
and now the garden sleeps
and now the garden sleeps

running and screaming and thinking about all the words that you're piecing together they rhyme in your mind
sweeter and softer pedals that surround her reminders of dimly lit porches that hide but you're trying

you're trying not to speak
but now the ceiling breathes in
swollen shaking knees baring
marks around our bodies remind us of the edge of the couch blocking the window
coldest morning that we've had
coldest morning

will we wait
will we wake up without a fire to stir
up without a fire to stir
up without a fire to
up without a fire to stir
Track Name: sun
no one saw me
i was waiting for something or someone to tell me
no one saw, no one saw
waiting for something or someone to tell me

no, i am not your sun
i am not your sun anymore

cos nothing can touch me
i am not your sun, you see
secrets in my head i keep
they lie inside my bed
are you in my bed?

no, i am not your sun
i am not your sun anymore

would you keep me til the end (before you start)?
lie inside my head (before you start)
would you keep me til the end (before you start)?
keep me in your bed (before you start)
just wait until the end (before you start)
would you keep me til the end
before you start?
Track Name: when they came
saw them raid the house and you from the room you were in
you were crawling on the ground away from the men who came in
now our brother's on the fence here
is conscious of dazing off?
that gaze it stays
that gaze it stays
now my eyes are fading gray
i fall and pray

no one above heaven and stars

how i wonder if you'll wait
Track Name: king of the dark
mask on the wall
streaming shards from the river bend down to
the king of the dark

fallen dark dove
unhinge your wings from the walls that fell down to
the king of the dark

shadowy son
creep from your room to the light trees above you and
the king of the dark

wolf in the snow
clean all your wounds as the blood rushes in from him
the king of the dark

lady in gold
ride to the sun on a white horse that flies you to
the king of the dark

king of the dark
Track Name: curtain closed
he was waitin' downstairs in a chair with shadows for eyes and dark brown hair while you sat up straight tried not to stare fixed your lips those jewels you wear on your wrist
sighing gently from the ground
as your blood pumps up and down

and you wish that you would scream his hands reclaiming what they've seen through foggy windowed dreams but every breath gasping for air another chance but you won't dare
to give up the one you found
so you let your body down

the pressure is gone now
so i'll wait 'til he leaves here
and why his face kept me up at night?
and now

stars away
curtain closed

you're asking me why
the answer
