1.
You have a heart like the aching sky For every bruise, there's an alibi You're angry that we walk with thieves that blood is spilt and no-one grieves I'll cut the rope and I won't look back Pull my bones from this lonely track but at the end, is your soul still blue and black? You're on a mission to lose your nose with words you plant a seed that grows well after all, the wind still blows so I'll pull the thorns right off this rose
2.
Washing Line 05:26
I was half-way home on a crazy train Packed your bags and upped your game I shed my skin on your knife Wide-eyed, seduced by life I hung my heart on a washing line to be whittled by wind, subdued by time I've been wading in a river since May and the tide's too strong
3.
Bound by chains with placard names Headless suits, loose in a maze Oh, something tear our eyes away from this monotony, we sway A record, stuck Static buzz and seeds are sprouting on the cusp but we're a race subdued by lust facile games, we place our trust Let us out unplug the coils from our lungs Drain us out, til the ocean's newly-found Take you down Fall as ashes to the ground The city beckons, lights that wink Tower falters on the brink We were born in line to sink Ship in a bottle, asked to drink A record, stuck Static buzz and seeds are sprouting on the cusp but we're a race subdued by lust facile games, we place our trust Let us out unplug the coils from our lungs Drain us out, til the ocean's newly-found Take you down Fall as ashes to the ground

Caught on the cusp and dragged in Eyes a cage, fought to sing Now the sun, it slides away Can't keep the dogs at bay Give you hands that wander, eyes that ache said the Sculptor to the Clay Blues came knocking, swept away Now edges start to fray Sculptor crumbled, so did clay Faces sunken, eyes grew grey Shown a clay heart how to beat then turned away with weary feet
5.
Nematode 04:15
Go ahead, hitch a ride for the sake of it Second-guessing your emotion; what to make of it Did it eat you up, couldn't you shake it? Please stop, don't run, we'll make it It's a lesson to be learned, a fragile snake bite Hours crying out and clawing at the moonlight and you breathe deep, tell yourself to sit tight Chain your bed to wasted dreams for just another night I'll tell you, he's the son of an earthquake and I'm the daughter of the sea that trembles under its shake Immersed in water til my mind aches The weeping willow bends and breaks It's a lesson to be learned, a fragile snake bite Hours crying out and clawing at the moonlight and you breathe deep, tell yourself to sit tight Chain your bed to wasted dreams for just another night
