Rings 03:54
i draw a line in my life singing this is the new way i behave now & actually live by the shape of that sound circle in the back of my throat spinning in my head & on my pillow telling you things you don’t need to know letting you know i trust you so much then i'm looking at you you through the lights a circle blinking in the tungsten wondering how i seem to you forgetting the words i’m singing for you am i forgetting how it felt? you were sleeping with your rings on cardinal wings in the early morning waking up to a metaphor forming i draw a line in my skin i’m pinning down inchoate meaning mark me right below the ampersand perforate line dry summer on my own land then it circulates around town do i double down because i’m stubborn? the needle on the phonographic sound you’re digging it up as soon as it’s drawn down am i forgetting how it felt? if you sing along do i remember? mark this feeling in the simplest shape let me finally let it fall away a w a y

Portal 02:28
i got this feeling a mile wide i look at it a little each side a portal for to climb inside how’s it feel in here? is the water fine? fine like cloth or like turpentine? the pattern where our habits hide isn’t it lovely i’ll never hold you to all you held me to i wanna talk about all the ways every example of the shapes we use to communicate for example when you’re leaning in to my armaggeddon & then you stop do you also feel the weight of loss? isn’t it lonely i’ll never hold ya the way you held me up
3.
Intrepid 03:30
don’t let it get to you you said well i did take a rectangle untangle your head intrepid would you bet your life on it darling if i did? well the way i spent my winter i wonder how could we commit? when the long road noise is loud & you can't hear the song go & i’m out here with no real belief & no hand for me to hold up in the early morning for no reason again relistening to your message & i held it in my head through broke signal like what type of world we wanna live in do we curl inwards or live long together in forgiveness? & you said do we bend our lives to it darling? then we did if we learn to love ourselves better maybe we could commit

paterson & leo are wandering out & wandering around in brookdale at sundown they're looking for... well, they're still looking —here's another place in our town —here's a loophole —here's the steeple —here's another under water —here's our friendship why i oughtta why i love you enough to say it thank you paterson thank you leo thank you paterson thank you leo

Angelina 01:38
washing windows with angelina i don't understand anything violent angles from side to side how'd you get so tangled up in my life? how'd you get so caught? how'd you get so tangled up? i love you like it's the old days when i could ask you anything how'd you get so tangled up in my thinking? how'd you get so caught? how'd you get so tangled up?

Easy Enough 02:01
it's easy enough to lure myself out of my house if i don’t think about all my limits i’m on my feet i’m on my way i'm wandering
 it's easy enough though to lie myself back down it's simple it's like i just remember how all my limits've held me back i hold my head & i let it ask why im altogether down & when will it end now? it's easy enough to lie to myself my eye, my carnivore circling appetite all my limits i'm on my feet i'm on my way i'm wandering why i'm altogether down & when will it end now? i'm wondering why i'm altogether down & when will it end now??

Darkness 04:33
suddenly i find i’ve got darkness on my mind it's the question mark that keeps me looking & it's never satisfied & it's never what i thought saying i'm happy when i'm not no, i got darkness on my mind leaning out the frame when it's particulate & grey i'm perpendicular to my whole being when i lean a certain way saying i'm happy when i'm not finding roaches in the pot o i got darkness on my mind some people spend their whole lives looking for someone who could understand while meanwhile a lilac blooming sometimes on the driest land & i know it's been a long time coming i'm angry & i know that's weak & i'm longing out that open window for whatever it is i seek some people spend their whole lives looking for someone who could understand & while meanwhile a lilac blooming sometimes on the driest land & i know it's been a long time coming i’m angry & i know thats weak so i’m trying not to be so bitter i’m just looking at it honestly well i know it's been a long time coming i'm angry & i know that's weak & i'm longing out that open window for whatever it is i seek some people spend their whole lives looking for someone who could understand while meanwhile a lilac blooming sometimes on the driest land

Amulets 01:00
little amulets along the window i've got this feeling like i'll always love you but i know that feeling how it moves through & through me & it's changing already then on the ambulance & out the window sequence of colors blue & red & then blue
