"Pit Dynamics"

I get a feeling
something like a call
Open the door and wait

Hugging the ceiling
something like a ghost
Humming around in waves

Under the stairs and
underneath the boat
Under a moon that wanes

Over the hill and
somewhere out the road
Over the one that stayed

Under the ground and
everything that crawls
Under a looming weight

Breathing below if
something’s right or wrong
I want to feel that way again

Over the pass and
over those away
Over the will to stray

Under your breath and
underweigh the stay
Under the bed for days

O, I’m in the million sides around the other
O, doesn’t your heart reflect in mine, like
O, quiet your arms and guide the grace to others

O, O, O

I want to hear that bell again
I want to hear that bell again
I want to hear that bell again




"Quiet Your Arms"

And O, for now
That fight won’t fade

And it’s awful how
That line degrades

On account of fits from the other side
I would count those waves on a boat

Fool around, unfit for the other’s eyes
As the fates all filled up with smoke

It’s the only thing we build that doesn’t break
It’s the only kind of love that doesn’t fade

In the fitful sound of the polarized
They would count those wakes from a shore

Lay above like cold on the lake at night
It would wake and sneak through your door

It’s the only thing we build that doesn’t break
It’s the only love that doesn’t grow and fade

Ooo, nothing should heal this way
Ooo, burn it today




"Park Witch"

What cold came over us?

What depth?

What distance?

What height before we called it enough?
