Track Name: The Clearing
I rowed across the river
searching for your skin
you said you like space,
with a hint of cinnamon

Molly stained my shirt
when we were ready to give
did you know then
i never wanted to live

keep your eyes half open
and lay down with my son
write kanji on his navel
to set a date for Gabriel

drill a hole in my brain
and fill it with marzipan
you're a stickler for balance
and dreams of orange land

I want to watch your barefeet
paint flowers in the dirt
and maybe when we're older
ill weep upon your shoulder

--------------------------------

when we arrived at the door
only you could stay silent with ease
ill continue to lift you up even though
im covered up to my knees


star children wrapped around your arm
clasped hands and a robe for work to do
a cistern where your heart should be
a dry field screaming for you

-----------------------------------

you dangled strawberries
over my list of needs
if i choose siddhartha
what'll happen to those seeds

come close but don't touch
make me loathe in stride
i'm naked and i'm waiting
but i don't want you to come inside

do as you may,
spill silk into my mouth
levitate and apparate
i'm crazy if I twist your fate

your mind became my bed
your thoughts have shut my eyes
i can dream but i won't sleep,
i won't sleep while you're alive

-----------------------------------------------

when we arrived at the door
only you could stay silent with ease
ill continue to lift you up even though
im covered up to my knees

star children wrapped around your arm
clasped hands and a robe for work to do
a cistern where your heart should be
and a dry field waiting for you

Track Name: Coming Home (ft. Naphay)
Time only passes on the phone
Just know we'll be at home

When you leave your wooden throne
Just know we'll be at home

Too late to make it on your own
Just know we'll be at home

Keep finding pieces in the tone
I think I'll stay at home

And try to make it work
