Track Name: Haze
I've got a fear of after and a healthy hunger
I've got what I need
I was put under a spell
I was told not to tell you anything

consenting machine
collecting what seems
constant

I've got a silver dollar that says I don't follow
I can play in the streets
I don't think about the end
I just ask where and when you want me

I don't know who would want to live forever in this place
I don't know who would want to live forever in all this haze
Track Name: Nails Of Love
When you're up in the morning
I'll still be here watching
the hopelessly independent
and desperately disinterested
lovers of California
taking their time calling it off

she doesn't want to be in love
she doesn't think it's any fun
all her friends are getting high on the weekends
he doesn't dance unless he's drinking
but he's been breaking it down

I met a man on a Wednesday
who asked me if I'd been trying
I told him I was
and I was convinced then
that I had the better end
this was always making sense
keeping this

I honestly never really needed to know
but I did
his girlfriend said that she was leaving alone
they were together just an hour ago
Track Name: 4th and Broadway
keeping track of time
at Fourth and Broadway
and I've been waiting 26 years
for someone to tell me that I'm not really gonna die
this time
and why it's only ever hard for me to change
when I really want to

I couldn't call you
so I was smoking
cigarettes on our front porch last night
and I was thinking about the night we
sat in my car at the Berkeley marina
and we talked each other down

calm and careful
sleeping off you leaving
and I've been numbering the days
this one's dragging on and on
and what I'm trying here to say is
I'm not quite as suited to taking care of me
as I try to make it seem when you're around

keeping track of time in the same place I was last night
Track Name: Dark Creak
from the bottom to the top
from the water to the drop
no I wasn't permanent
I was made for this end

from the comedown to the climb
through a window then the vine
no I wasn't afraid of it
there was never anything to be empty of

are you sick?
or are you well?
are we in heaven, or is this hell?
no I wasn't permanent
I was made for this end

my shins then my shoulders
my sleepwalker focus
cold creeping current
dark creak
Track Name: What I Could Gather
I never meant to make it what it wasn't
I never could recall what I was missing
but I'd let you know when I was uncomfortable
I'd let you know when I was coming home in pieces

if I ever had the attention of your conscience
I didn't want it, I wanted a quicker way out
I I ever had the intention to be honest
I wouldn't call this anything but what I see when you're not watching me

if I could kill it off
if I could make the call
I would and I wouldn't
if I could spell it out
if I could live without it
I would and I wouldn't
Track Name: Over To You
Your smoke, smoke, smoke
Swim into my veins,
Color in my bones,
Settle into everything
From a motel somewhere on the way to Arizona
I wanted you to know, I wanted you to know I wanted you

The winter wasn't done with us
This flight away from sun was uninvited
And I'm feeling pretty spun again
Buried in the snow for three days in a row
In my head I was over to you, over to you,
Over to you, over to you

Your smoke, smoke, smoke
Swim into my veins,
Color in my bones,
Settle into everything
From a motel somewhere on the way to Arizona
I wanted you to know, I wanted you to know I wanted you

Convinced I couldn't catch an end
I wasn't making any sense to anyone
But I'd step over their heads
Regardless splitting at the ends
From fighting off the bends
In my head I was over to you, over to you,
Over to you, over to you

Your smoke, smoke, smoke
Swim into my veins,
Color in my bones,
Settle into everything
From a motel somewhere on the way to Arizona
I wanted you to know, I wanted you to know I wanted you

Taking your time, taking your time, taking your time
Taking your time, taking over your time
Taking your time, taking your time, taking your time

Your smoke, smoke, smoke
Swim into my veins,
Color in my bones,
Settle into everything
From a motel somewhere on the way to Arizona
I wanted you to know, I wanted you to know I wanted you
Track Name: White Widow
Flesh and bone,
Cut out of stone
I'll never be ready to leave this home
I've got a gift
I could dwell, I could dwell on it
And never notice, I'd never notice

The truth in me is what I wanted
The truth is I was never honest before this

Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown
Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown

I fought for freedom
And the fighting folded over me
I caught the wind
In grocery bags and garbage bins
And I didn't know what I'd been avoiding
I didn't know what I'd been

The truth in me is what I wanted
The truth is I was never honest before this

Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown
Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown
Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown, the comedown, the comedown

Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown
Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown
Didn't love, didn't love, didn't love the comedown, the comedown, the comedown
Track Name: Drone
you caught the will of god in an iron fist
and pressed it into your breast pocket
with all the shining bits of permanence
that you'd been chipping away at
and you felt secure
like you were promised
you were finally sure
that the reason for all this leaving
was love and nothing more

forget what you started with
whatever happened to the rest
forget what you started with
whatever happened

cut neck
casually keeping up with
killing it
that’s what you call it
what you call this
this is home
this is known
this is what you wanted
as payment for all you've added to the drone

I saw a fire burning deeper in the woods
I saw my neighbor burning down his whole neighborhood
saw the smoke where he had been
then the silhouette that waded in
I panicked
this is it
Track Name: Brume
this place contains no shadow
it is soft
it is simple
it is hallowed
fingertips and shoulders
hips and confidence
whatever I am not it is

trusting in confidence
whatever I am not it is

this place controls my conscience
call me down
to the station
to the kitchen
to the place where you've been keeping
all my love
in the dark

kept in my head
midnight crept into our bed
kept in my head
coming home missing it

this place contains no shadow
