Blue Blood 02:43
Blue Blood Hide, hide you worldly Hide you early birds 'till the kingdom comes Till their eyes cloud Till the state bleeds out in to my cup Into my blue blood Into my cup Into my blue blood From the badlands through the subway run Every cell phone on a constant buzz It's gonna eat you up, and all of your blue blood They're gonna eat you up they want all your blue blood
All You Got 02:48
Baby I don't think that I was ready When I told you watch out But I wanted you so near to me darlin that I was crazed, in awe and shock I know I got what I need, and I will stand by your side so honey come stay with me and give me all that you've got to find And if we find death in the wings of a dissipated lonely rock the leaves aren't blooming on the trees darlin' holes have opened in the ground I know I got what I need, and Ima stand by your side So honey come stand with me and give me all that you've to find
Sordid Woman 02:29
Oh sordid woman, your raptures coming Feast, stalling, you won't, Can't stop it coming Sound out the middle, Phonetic spittle Flying all around you Keep calling it rescue Blind calling on you Bleed all of our question Uncanny lover, Your legs all smothered, Clothed, out of your lips, Those words I covet "Bring me back to when I was your cover. No sheets or linens Could keep you warmer. Skin up against skin Tied to one another"
Remedios 02:54
Remedios While you've got a mind to repair you Yer hearts just a spike,will impale you I got gold threads I could sell you Cut just enough to tie round you Run through streets Pants down round your knees Run 'cross the wind gold threads streaming Like a kite on the run over pavement Run through the chills of beginning Till its a cold empty room full of knitting Ramadios flying round like ghost Killed every man that could find her The balance of saints and of sinners
Crooked Handle Crooked handle would you hold your hand down tightly When I ask of voluntary fealty Could you stand up to the giants glass of poison? Would you claw until his sockets are worn through? Bleeding hearts don't have a place in this bravado. It's the state of where you are, not where you been. Valentine I'm not the child you cried for leaving. Im an arrow built to cut through every wind, And I can't hide. Hold on it's a pond not to be sailed on. The ocean would tear your boat apart like the eyes you gouged when you were still a baby. Could you beat them till they don't come back again? You can hold the hand of hope out at your villain But I kill mine.
The Arab Spring I called the change in my mouth while my heart laid way For those seeds planted born with the foresight of famine your way Greased the palms of your man But he forgot just where he came Said "now boy here's a gun, don't you jump it can not be reclaimed. But if you'd stop wailing On the door you sealed yourself Let it fall from its hinges And lay it down to walk across Till the bridge you need is formed And the anchor laid has held Has held
Golden bovine I should of never took a single sip I should've never took a single hit Where's the payment you sought? Did that burn in your heart go away? It's a fine credo for a younger man, But it's the tide that came and drowned all of the innocent And they'll float and decay, And they'll fall down from heaven in dirty rain. And I'll fill up my cup, And the circle it's comes back again Blinder than Eros Bruising my feet I'm Trying to get back to you Oh golden bovine How many many more nights Before I get back to you I came up with a headstrong glyph So you hit me back and my lips are spit And the bloods on my tongue, And It swelled my mouth shut, I hit my knees Zachariah, please how Did unhinge you jowls I cannot speak? Blinder than Eros Bruising my feet I'm Trying to get back to you Oh golden bovine How many many more nights Before I get back to you
Yankee Love 04:01
Are you satisfied? It's a lake that lies in wait for us. Is a broken compass psalm gonna drive you back away alone? Make the lake my own. Let it bleach my bones I don't think I'm living right Got this blood run down my nose Dizzy stumble through the night Till I'm bled down to the bone Where did you go, Yankee love? Always stuck inside your head Like its somewhere to be running off I see you sprinting, run again.
Mausoleum 02:53
Mausoleum Lets all go lie down together, we can alternate from feet to head. When they seal that door we can sleep forever a mausoleum and pity bed. When my lovers come with flowers to smack their gums about my brain, and my body lies along the bag of rot you used to be in a locked up drawer inside the chiseled marble masonry on the mezzanine below your future family's body keeps So lovers plant those flowers around me I will nourish every single leaf with all I've got, a mound of matter, and my family's bones surrounding me. And every leaf will grow and pass along the code. The seed to fill the bird, the vine to build his home I can't compete, I've have this good no where in me You can lay your flowers, say your words, I hope that you believe.
