Track Name: Shift
sail to
other lands
in your diary entries
written in
foreign hands

metal buildings

barrels of
cold copper

all the saints of the church or
whole flocks of
all white doves

can't replace your image
in my house
on my tongue
in my song

in my prayers
you're safe from the politics and
charnel houses
of youth

skin on the milk
and dust on my legs
I can't feel the hard edge
drink to the dregs
appeal to the heavens
ritual cleansing

lost in the taste
the sun
and why we want you

cause he's the only one
who ever really mattered

long solemn walk
at night on your avenue

for a single source
from which all this is
could be anchored

all capitals of empires
remind me of you

slink into the arteries
of anybody

how could you possibly imagine
a purpose of life like that

to steal the train of thought
from the illuminati

from a place of privilege
it is easy to judge

tie your hands together
cradle your foreign doves
Track Name: Afternoon
It was my mother then
she went so crazy when
on sunday afternoons
drive through the country boons

you know it

now it's the way the light
overwhelms everything
right at that time of day
I can see anything

but you know it
Track Name: Coast
sometimes I forget to keep in mind where I've
come from or where I am or where I want to be

I don't know where to go from here
I don't know where to go from here
everything I hold dear
drifting up sailing out and gone away

if it all goes well
I will bring you back
