Track Name: it's beautiful outside
when i stayed inside for the winter
put the pillow above my head and bit it hard
pinyon wood was in the air but i didn't care
floating there in dark clouds across my chest

i stayed up late to see the dawning light
on the highway bridge i would sit and breathe
nothing changed no matter how hard i scratched,
and said

"there's no moon in the center of my heart"

but now i'm ready to start
Track Name: something to hold on to
what is my purpose
digging up dirt from under the sandbox
and walking through the woods
with some forced content expression on my face

what is there to take in
what urgency in evening air
repeatedly draws me back
what mystery of something hidden
and what glow of something gone
that's not there anymore
that's not there anymore
that's not there anymore

feeling dizzy and undone
on my way back from the store
wanting a physical touch
from someone not there anymore
Track Name: comfortable in water
what are u doing at the bottom of the ocean
get out of there u silly idiot
float up to the surface like we all do
let's go back home where it's dry
it's dry at home
Track Name: it was easier then
i hid from the sun when i tripped and slipped and fell down in the snow. and i lay on the wall in the yard with the branches hanging heavy and low. it was easier then; to not get scared when i looked up. far above me, sugar fell down on my face that watched endless gray that lay still. the stilling gray itself was warming up my heart. and in my heart, as a kid, there was always something left undone. but i waited softly for my mom to call me in
