Track Name: Galore
sever watch one split into two
five six we've found theory to chew
watch us spit

knowledge professed as though
read from a relic stone unbroken

for every wound that you carry
one more rebirth
[various forms of varying worth]

we peddle the tinder and burn the cash in a heap on the floor
because we prefer the flame
we speak creed, whispers rise to a dull roar
like smoker's cough in a poet's game

[lost verse found]
you wouldn't believe the sound

[expound] faces fractured in a mirror image assembly
a hundred mouths utter the litany a different way
[you wouldn't believe the sound]

of knowledge professed as though
read from a relic stone long broken
in as many fragments as you, your so called
[knowledge falsely so called]

sing noble you good hero so
as not to hear the one who speaks what he knows:

as above so below

[lost verse found]
you wouldn't believe the sound
Track Name: Urizen
self-closed but composed
of what you love and all you've hated

selfsame so you blame
time and times you've divided

self-closed but composed
of what you love and all you've hated
what's opposed and what's related
not cut nor created

selfsame so you blame all creation

and for this you should feel regret:
every night the secret's told
[every day] in a sweat you wake up and forget

he lets his blood in the holes he's digging
and the lines in his skin
run the same as the cracks in the ground

he pours his come in the fire again
burn clean redeem
now the lines in his skin
can be drawn between stars that he's found
Track Name: Mapmaker
[reckon a fix too far] dead fix

name the stab of sadness you find
the day you realize*
the way that your hometown's defined
just a name and some lines
on a map you don't recognize

clutch yourself you're a child
give the dead skin a kiss
coddled until its putrid
as precious as it is
stillborn life

but look in its mercury eyes
what was the color or was there a color before?
and drive back to your old school
chalk on the blackboard or was there a chain on the door?

what was that thing that you said I said?
you said I'd never said it before:**

windrose, burn in the sky
blister your truth into half closed eyes

dead fix

*hits like a train, your world dismembered
rolls right by

**said it with your eyes half closed,
two horizons at civil twilight
I think you were asleep
Track Name: Boundary
know what you get when you come to a place like
hollows cut from blankets of cedar and pine
know what you get when you come to a place like
Boundary

some cruel sun burns cold in a place like
no man's law to marry your sin with mine
some cruel sun burns cold in a place like
tragedy

frost and thaw when you come to a place like
no man's law when you come to a place like
tooth and claw when you come to a place like
no man's law when you come to a place like

but its a long arm
with an obscene reach and a crude charm
so justice was blindfolded to judge clean
now justice is blind to everything it seems

they came out of the woods looking
this way that kid hadn't seen us
but his dog knew where we were at
it came running so I took it down
"no" the kid yelled
he opened up and that's when it went to hell

[the shot rings]

I'm looking down at my feet and the ground
as the air leaves a hole in my chest makes a
hissing sound and god damn, Vick's down
and I'm feeling nothing

Vick laid down
took her daughter from her arms
and cleaned the blood with her gown

I'd give all my gold to have kept that lead
inside my heart, inside my head
but you took it for me in
but it took you for me instead

everything to have kept that lead
but then you took it for me instead

the shot rings

I'm looking down at the feet and the ground
and the hands at the side of the body they
tell me is mine and god damn I don't feel
but my face contorts to tell me the nausea's real
but my face eases up to tell me the pleasure's real
but my face sweats to tell me the fever's real
but my body's a stone and the earth is a stone wheel

feel it and know would you recognize
the back of your head if you see it?
thrown miles away from your feet hands
Track Name: Truman
[closing] suffocate
[trapped in a body] look around
[tethered with viscera] for the keys
[sinew and skin] out the door
driving

to the crest of the tallest hill
where the trees like verses will spell:

wither the ones which grow
upon the branches of others
held when the wind does blow
fall when the earth does shudder

thrive those which grow straight
and carry their own weight

people gather at home as the sun goes down

so I drive to town

and park on the street
an array of windows lights up in mass
an electic glow
thrown into the night from behind the glass
signal repeats
identical charms for the families inside
faces I know
with sockets of coal and diamonds for eyes

the man on the street
he says, "as above, so below"
I ask him his name
he says, "about that son, I don't know
but I can tell you the name of that tv show."

so I drive back home

coils
the origin lines
traced from the fossil bowels of history's flesh
burn in my wall as a sign

white heat
from the curve of my spine
writhes in a spiral contrived by the
left hands of men without wives
burns in my floor as it shines

what's inside spills outside
the living filth convulsing in my head

what's outside slips inside
[my breath] contracts expands
[through skin] of a serpent seen red

so I go to bed

[the trees lay down] a sweet sad psalm
[the kid drones out] nothing heard nothing wrong
[my back seizes and releases] a rhythm I couldn't keep
[so I sing] the last sweep

and fall asleep

tell me something
give me a logic to defy
tell me
was it an illusion when I died,
looked down and saw my life like a map?
I died, looked down and saw my life like a map
and came back to life
Track Name: Saturn
and if in time I forget please don't remind
all the times I


found in my sleep
I'd ground my teeth all down
[to the roots you grew into me]
all through our youth

choked blades of grass
pulled from out my throat
[words I could never spit out]
finally spoken

cried saw everything
cried blood every color ever
[ruby red oh how it suited me]
[tears of joy in colors I couldn't see]
every color all together I stared at the sun

all the times I cut out my eyes just to find
I'd been blind to the shape and used
negative space as means to define

and if in time I forget please don't remind


an empty home an empty head
things you said and didn't say
and what I came all this way
to ignore
