Running in the tomb On the rain-side And the rain-day oh holiday ho hum Boring caught in the rain The health and safety first These tiny conversations Will-convented tomb Half your full apology oh Avoided it, a wall, and then a conversation changed around In the middle of a greater world, the eternal I was coughing so loud into the grading fall
2.
All the wrecking heart, all of the beggars All the wrecking heart, through the spirit below And your doubting mind Love’s all I could devalue Sheer the wrecking time And the may will behold A long time ago In a golden tomorrow I’ll find the new me In the wait and the wonder I will see through what I did do Though you do not want it I will see through what I did do Though you do not want it Through the wrecking heart… I’m going to walk like a banker a knee goes right across Sally I’m going to beg your dollar Oh lady, all of the ones at once and once Oh, how could I remember silicon valley? I’m going to beg to the maker oh on the cirque, on valet

Late Apollo, lack a loyal biding time Made up aural light amoral lens And away with her Wait alone Do up a day all night Wake up all you pretty boys and walk on down Hear the wrecker let him play a part And away with her No one can stand I don’t want to hide I see you there You are all aligned Late Apollo, diamond hollow, fall in line Take a pay raise, shimmer for awhile And away with her No one is there high above I’ll re-narrate all — a way All all a way More than this Run on a random All the rivers never run on time on a careening hardship Take apart these chronicles of mine Run away with her (all of our lives)

Re-Veil 03:11
Nowhere I can stay You will make it wrong And I’m on the run I can’t get along She will break him down On a creek I’m gone All the parts are tight Take care, Apollo Oh my coward She’ll re-veil him Damn I cut back All laughing to the day Settle up with him and I love my life and mañana rides to your better eyes Admitting that I’m wrong is a bigger load Ignoring thank-you riled up my heart Hey hey All I know, taken away You are gone without a trace All your things at my place In a museum of us You think I’m strong but I’m not so tough A thing of beauty blossomed and died But it’s worse we’re still alive No fear Let go Everything upended in a flash Where do I begin to start all over again? Pitch black joke: you don’t love me no more It’s hard to believe, how can it be true? I really don’t want to have to cauterize the wound And kill my love I have for you Oh make all wrong. Our days are forlorn. To be my love: for a maker ends all wrong She can know my light. Habit is around. She can know my life. She may near my own. To be come alone and to rub our eye, all that in me died, it barely belonged. To the end of trying to hang on forever Do you know the ways all the ways I love you? I could fall for someone new and erase my memories of you but I wont. No fear Let go I love you No fear

You are low Then you’re fine do you want? analyze. Put away all the time. Can’t deny you move on. Aloha, I don’t know why all of our days we are sure. Rolling once, failing twice. You were all my advice. How you roam, drink the rum. And your gun in your smile. (Rumble like you’re never going to run to… you go look: remainder of the wonder. Home, the naked, ramble on an angle. Home.) Teardrop lots, dead-end cry Make a tome, vacant eyes Will I ride all the way, and the mountains to be shaped? All of life, to be wrong to the sage of the ray (Sit him up, shaken, up just like a random. All day long the dear can make you angered. I can make it rumble like a stranger done.) My new real count it down: made your life to be free Held a rhyme not so long. Failing once for a mile (Follow begging on, you kick a soldier round the decked-out brand new form of u-boat. Follow on, my naked son, we’re way beyond.) All of life, all of my heart, all of my mind, reassure.

I’m open Grey A little bit backbone Standing up a day ago and you hold on like a latent animal bathed in, backward In a naked quality All of it in public You and I were meant to be pulling over all mine all my love til you shine when I was so low down on the doom road I’m only holding up on stay-dirt cuddled up in two-foot piles and my baby wrote this I’m a no-lit, battle-thick all day, bold this all I all I all over jagged I don’t buy it, modern man all I wanted to be pausing roll up, day-old like a lady poke a tail build shoot it up more the same Oh no, I can’t go all the way on the table all the way on the table and you’re having him and the wall, the tilt of the Great Big Housing All of I have been here never And I stay huddled up in thin— A line fold— In her mouth And a hug into my hollow Only heading in holy pauses Name-a-holiday, holiday, holiday, holiday All I All I really wanted All I want is to be pausing All I needed to be combatting all these manners making backwards Oh my live a bit I’m scared mono- main- ee- a All the pity glimmering I know all of me all of me all of me all the way all the way all the way, all the way home

Lake Girls 04:37
I followed doling out the sign he draws all the day call him and sea-raised I rise Oh lady, take all the love slowly began to say, Allah hi ho, make all lawwwwwwss in light all my true ray-burned doll all I make, I have Lost in the lane the shadows wide all the backup, rainbows Blue little tanker landing wild on their own tornado make alright whole love away follow paved curve by the bay make up bag a lotto beggar throw away the rind and her pocket cause of halo rendezvous aligned a lobe, a lake, fidelio on the rake-combed eye! I’d like a final record of our neighbour — part of it to shine oh they know the lake grows high! From the fall-away dew Do you, light girl lay too hard on the make-away charm? There is time for sight to bend, Into a new ornament and the rat, to lodge a beggar floss and takes a towel bend to wrap the reiki’d eye-goal under buried sky all I put anchored no two trying don’t look back or pull to cry in I know Lake Girl —run to take her— other takers died I followed doling out the sign he draws All the day call him and sea-raised — I rise Oh lady, take all the love slowly began to say Allah hi ho, make all lawwwwwws in light all my true ray-burned doll all I make, I have

Walking backwards in a mountain veiling the night to mark it howl along the night horizon all the brothers in line He’s haunted triangular desire makes it’s miracle knows the young lover of the forgiven and heartbeats. Put the viewer in the roast pushes into her lip to be revealed. Antics of the everyday are ongoing. Silent worlds are uncomfortable exchanging punches with realities. Skeletons in the bathroom. Poetry Love Strange sex Cynicism In the tone of human cruelty that is looking to bend with ambiguity tired and messy. Death is when there are no confessions a corpse a biological end. You cannot defend yourself against people who attract you. It is no fault that she is not a boy. Thorns in the laws of attraction where sex plays no role just wants to kiss him. Does it all make a caress or a kiss?

All the gaming. Do the time. All the day up — day up early — day I’m down And the winds roll, riding high. Oh, the catcall, make it wrong, making it by. Narcolept, falling asleep at night. Too big to apologize. Oh ho. Under-carry all the brands. Tiger right there. Red, I lock it, and move on. Ma died again. Grown down, down, down. Called out all that should be mine. Narcolept, falling asleep at night. Oh ho. Narcolept, falling asleep at night. Oh ho. Uh uh oh ho. I, I. Oh ho. I, I. Oh oh. Any colour… back in time… and the dewdrop, daily grey, so it is mine. I do declare, “the sun will shine.” Allowing all the meaning owning in the gown. Narcolept, falling asleep at night. Too big to apologize. Oh ho. Oh ho. ‘Til noon of, they came along, and tamed and took away the baby’s gun. You like a wrecking man. Well, I’ve been buried, too. I’m all I can at all. I’m over you, but you are not letting me up, up off of you you, you, you, you Narcolept, falling asleep at night Want to wreck a man tonight. Oh no. Oh no. Narcolept, falling asleep at night. Foul update: you’re thinking tight.
