Estuary 03:16
Crush in the blue of midaugust we keep these axles on the grind We scan from station to station to station to station... and we take our time… just take our time. Decades of static survival dry hills and windmills in a line This highway stretches forever so take your time… Just take your time. If you’re out there, I will cover my face in flames. and, etched in reverse, this plate will detail the day we elided our names And Oh, I’ll be the presence in your estuary strike for the kill when the battle begins And Oh, whatever paperwork is necessary strike for the kill when the battle begins I've slept out under fig tree I’ve pulled a blossom from the vine I’ve heard the crack of the lightning And I take my time… yes I take my time. If you’re out there, I will cover my face in flames. and, etched in reverse, this plate will detail the day we elided our names And Oh, I’ll be the presence in your estuary strike for the kill when the battle begins And Oh, whatever paperwork is necessary strike for the kill when the battle begins

Somewhere beyond the empty hours… I feel it Where color fades to bending light When all the silent rhythms of the evening come to life Give me a sign if you’re out there I’d burn the negative to speak your name Give me a sign if you’re out there Speak if you're out there... Out there... In endless fields of tempered brass and satin Out there… bathed in the glow of amber light Out there… we move in secret ceremonies beyond this life Give me a sign if you’re out there I’d burn the negative to speak your name Give me a sign if you’re out there Speak if you’re out there...

Fire… every photo that you leave behind well it burns like a neon light Drive… desert chrome is all you need to survive For this life on the borderline When you you just can’t hold it in, hold it back, hold it down & You fall away from everything and everyone in every town I know you’re looking for something I know you’re waiting for the night to come It’s like you’re praying for winter Cold to the touch, you’re the only one Ghost... every whisper, every word you speak… to the dawn, will it fade away? And this fate, overflowing pages of florid lines... but you can’t find the words to explain, no. When you you just can’t hold it in, hold it back, hold it down & You fall away from everything and everyone in every town I know you’re looking for something I know you’re waiting for the night to come It’s like you’re praying for winter Cold to the touch, you’re the only one

Pearls 03:05
I was a ghost A Double exposure At the edge of the frame And every word was erased for the sake of the trades Only a touch Only a witness Only an army of eyes Only a slow quarter turn in the glow of the arclight I lived the dream of a lost youth I lived the dream of a lost youth I lived a life tearing off pearls I lived a life burning in frames With each and every close of the shutter I leave it all behind me deep in the heat of the night I savor this pain I lived a life tearing off pearls I lived a life burning in frames Trust… every desire in the flavor of skin In the cold silver light, I can feel it begin. With every turn, every direction We bring a desert to life And every word a mirage in the hush of the moonlight I lived the dream of a lost youth I lived the dream of a lost youth I lived a life tearing off pearls I lived a life burning in frames With each and every close of the shutter I leave it all behind me deep in the heat of the night I savor this pain I lived a life tearing off pearls I lived a life burning in frames

Lowercase V 03:53
Turn up the lights Adjust the aperture I’m ready I was adrift for days I was a wanderer But if I return, will the air still rise? If I reach for it one more time? Feel it all rushing back like a dream These seconds burn to the edge of the scene Hit like the break in the waterfall Lowercase v Hit like the light to the celluloid Lowercase v my finest hours trimmed off and cast aside in echoes This languid pause, The inhale before the lines. If these moments fall to the wind, to the flames... If we’re left with nothing but titles and names… Feel it all rushing back like a dream These seconds burn at the edge of the scene Hit like the break in the waterfall Lowercase v Hit like the light to the celluloid Lowercase v
