Track Name: Vertigo
A fitting end to our last hooray:
a fractured moon with no sense to stay.
Out of the blue, you done lied to me, sayin’
I want you more than the lord of sleep.

How the legs went down, how the back caved-in
How the red-light-twirl made the ground skin-thin

A box of shells, the clowns you drew,
A blackened spoon with no life to lose.
Out of the night, a line came to me, sayin’
Whatever’s cold ain’t mine to keep.

How the legs went down, how the back caved-in
How the red-light-twirl made the ground skin-thin
How the walls took flight, how they laughed like kings
How the siren wailed like an angel-scream

Bit by bit, the sky tears in two:
a dead half for me, a dead half for you.
In this light, a star can’t exist
with no sun to curse, with no moon to kiss.

Bit by bit, our love tore in two:
a cold cell for me, a black cloud for you.
Time will tell, as it lives to speak,
if the mind can still what the heart can’t keep.
Track Name: Talent show
Lifeless night
lit by a scythe-like moon
not a sound
mum as a wound

Brought a knife
just like the one you used
blessed it twice
painted it blue

You go, and I will follow
like the burn that tails your name

Read your note
after the casket fell
drank your smell
line after line

Tore in two
over the thought of you
“…counting stars
while daddy dined.”

You go, and I will follow
like the burn that tails your name
I swear on my own shadow
I’ll never leave your side again

Never knew a blood so blue
could feed a heart cut to pieces
Never thought a scar so deep
could ever heal and leave no traces
