Track Name: Pattern Recess
i feel it in the dark deep
tissue of whats grown weak
i hear it in my own mouth
the words i learn to let come out
like the wool felts
like the ice melts
all my time will tell
all my tides will swell
like the moon bid
like the tire skid
i can’t help it
i can’t quell it


up on the mountain i pattern
go round and round like the rings of saturn
i can’t stay no i can’t stand it
i think i need a whole new planet
like a first breath
like a quick death
my time is so pressed
my life is so blessed
like a good guess
like a no less
pattern recess
feelings fluoresce


I’ve given you my whole life
on you love i got a sticky eye
i can’t stay no i can’t stand it
believe me i never would have planned it
like a true hound
like a false bound
I’m set free now
i will be found
like a far dream
like a near scream
im now unseen
i float downstream
Track Name: Snake Tongue
wake up cloudy mind
am i yours or mine
sunrise fills my eyes
hold me closer than tight
let go, knew you might
light leaves all the sky
sunset lets me rest
untangle my mess

the mood it has struck me
are you the ground tonight
cause i will be falling
just wanna land alright
are you the ground tonight
are you the ground tonight

speak on what happened
snake tongue unfastened
slides in, edged knife
sharp taker of life
see clear into me
how hard can it be
promise i won't bite
snake tongue untied

the mood it has struck me
are you the ground tonight
cause i will be falling
just wanna land alright
are you the ground tonight
are you the ground tonight

snake tongue your poison
snake tongue your venom
snake tongue medicine
snake tongue my heaven
Track Name: CA
don't go, but i'm happy for you
come back here soon
call me home, you're not alone
open your hand to find what you hold

california

driving east into unknowns
in between two happy homes
i left roots deep down in the ground
drag them through the sand and all around

california

they say the earthquake is overdue
i'll try to come back and rescue you

california
Track Name: Flamed Out
rush in, fall down
all open with eyes wide shut
fell in, let down
i see now theres no short cut

light up, flame out
i'm burnin on each and every end
filled up, spilled out
too much for the heart of a man

we flamed out, rushed it
fell in and down, i trusted
your love had no limit
your care had no limit
but it wasn't deep enough, strong enough, true enough
it wasn't real love

here then, hush now
what happened to forever ever ever
clear then, clouds now
no small storm could our love weather

let go, go back
i won't i won't i won't i can't
don't go fall back
in love cause i know i can

we flamed out, rushed it
fell in and down, i trusted
your love had no limit
your care had no limit
but it wasn't deep enough, strong enough, true enough
it wasn't real love
Track Name: Adorned and Perfumed
the crystal cracked
now the dead wood will burn
with words that stay
i will open and learn
she stung my back
moved the venom around
with light that burns
my feet back to the ground

make the fire hot and bright
burn the dead long, give them light
make the fire hot and bright
burn the dead long, give them light

the crystal cracked
now i search for the shard
hidden in the ashes
still glowing not charred
when i heal the quartz wound
open and learned
i'm reborn and cocooned gone the sting and the burn
i'm adorned and perfumed gone the dark thing and concern
i'm sworn by the moon to grow wings and return

make the fire hot and bright
burn the dead long, give them light
make the fire hot and bright
burn the dead long, give them light
Track Name: Spiral Higher
higher

fine fibers make up the web
snake shoves his tail into his head
round circle makes up the wheel
the planets shape how we feel

i’m lone spider on my web
i’m snake beginning to shed
you come around when you can
try to open but you won’t bend

climb into my fine web
i’ll make a soft bed
we’ll melt into fine fibers
spiral up higher and higher

spiral higher

Track Name: End End
i wake in the morning
there's no reply from you
laugh it off laugh it off
hahaha hahaha

i will come quick
running rescue to you
when you need me
give it all give it all
why why why why do i

you're at an ending
but it's not the end end
i'm just beginning
but it's not the start yet
you're at the ending
but it's not the end end
i'm just beginning
but it's not the start yet

user you are losing me
now i've got to move on
shut the door shut the door
bye bye bye bye bye bye

closer to who i want to be
now true love will find me
open up open up
hi hi hi hi hi hi

Track Name: Great Dunes
like the great dunes
beautiful but in the wrong place
our love came too soon
built to bloom but not built to stay
my eyes full mooned
then the light made you look away
if i give you room
will you see there may not come a day
to try to love again
to try to love again
to try to love again

like the hot spring
stay too long a fever’s comin on
dizzy i try standing
in body and heart i don’t feel strong
flying with one wing
the distance feels impossibly long
is this all you could bring
a 'sorry' and an 'i know i was wrong'
to try to love again
to try to love again
to try to love again

like the valley
i don’t know what's on the other side
i sure did not see
how ready i was to love, to collide
to try to love again
to try to love again
to try to love again
Track Name: Deepness
the heart
the blood stone
the rose quartz
the unknown

the eye
the marble
the opal
the cyclone

the hand
the soft paw
the feelers
the wish bones

the mouth
the sweet peach
the taste test
the love moan

we are it all and no less
we feel it all with the deepest
we are it all, unless
we just let go into the deepness

the love
the deep well
the cavern
the ocean

the gaze
the laser
the window
emotion

the touch
the contact
the push back
in motion

the voice
the echo
the thought
spoken

i am it all and no less
i feel it all with the deepest
i am it all unless
i just let go into your deepness

into your deepness
Track Name: Heart Haunt
feel into the future
peel back all the layers
get just what you asked for
find you don't seem to care

don't wanna play
another game
just gonna wait
for things to change

it's the have not
it's the don't want
it's the constant
heart haunt
it's the reach out
it's the take back
it's what i need
you lack

don't wanna play
another game
just gonna wait
for things to change

i am always the looker in
close my eyes and make it happen

it's the look out
i'm on the prowl
i've been waiting for love
it's the i'm fine
it's the i'll find
it's the wrong time for love
Track Name: Take It Back
i'm not trying to be distant
i've been out of my body
gone then back in an instant
trying not to feel sorry

if you want me you'll answer
though silence I've allowed
you sleep sound while I stir
i've been wondering how

do you rest when the feeling is love
do you sleep when you've had enough for now
will you hide when the feeling is new
do you try not to feel blue so soon

i've been busy I'm worn out
don't ask too much
i'll see you soon no doubt
but be light with your touch

if you want me you'll have me
make future plans
don't take it back baby
please just take my hand

do you fold when the feeling is love
do you hold your armor up to me
will I rest when the ache is gone
do my best to not linger long in love

don't take it back yet
don't rest just yet
