Track Name: the north pole
(eleven point three: all blood swallowed goes north)
Track Name: bedtime
fall asleep with littlewhitelies
bury them in my bed. say: it's ok
because everybody's looking (yeah everybody does it)
peel away the bedsweat get down on yr knees
take one tablet (7.5mg) at bedtime daily
Track Name: warnings from health canada
your arms are the length of the river(ican'tswimthelengthoftheriver)
my ordinary mouth tries to make sound
(all the great lakes in my belly not a song to sing)
Track Name: buzz/bleach
and what dog you! you walk from my spit(how dare you)
we hang from the trees like we bark for the leaves
to strip from this mouth, i have found the curtains
to make this room good to make this life better and good
let's go and fill our faces with blood
and sore backs my campfire body
we blaze our orifices with train wrecks only
and sleep our nights as bearded ladies
there are peels in the place i have saved you
your insects from your sleeping the bed through
and it takes only tears of the flesh fruit
you are buzzed from the bleach of the bedroom
(you can eat all my skin, if you want to)
Track Name: i call them; they come
(a time for rest)
Track Name: farmer, did you make the bed
we were built to scare
(the birds away)
(the shit out of you)
what did you say i'm made of
(is that what they're calling skin now)
Track Name: sings again: the snow (for jeffrey)
there's nowhere to put any faith

sometimes i walk around with a ghost i have no idea where his body goes and we're waiting limp on lawns for lungs and your language lost is gone and gone round about the wrecks for rails i found you sleeping in the corn field and your mother sings again the snow sometimes she walks around with a ghost (blood we call it now fills up the mattress)

what did i tell
you about leaving
the bathroom light
Track Name: visual training
welding weather
being bones
i've got shelter: please, come home(all this wood no one to fill it)
burn down the churches(i have your secrets___
believe me you can't keep anything from me
you must be patient
believe in nothing it is so much easier
Track Name: canary, some song
protect them: your lungs for: sing, we all have words.
your house is made of wood. we slide the forest with
paper - paper - paper. you are all the sand i am
waiting for.
Track Name: yr violence (all the time i wasted asleep)
(turn down the furnace)
no one notices the bark between
doorways(the skin peeled between)
rooms we sleep sound in
but do we sleep sound when
we make no sound in
who: in the garden?
perform yr violence let's get it done with(by blood,
do you mean mine)
Track Name: wooden bells: ring!
wander halls of hospitals and birthday (birthday) don't
give water don't wet wood for we bring lakes to bodies of water
i have made this shelter i don't mind
(no really i don't mind at all it's not a problem)
wooden bells: ring ( i don't mind )
seatbelt right and birthday (birthday) you say don't
cause flood bring what you dreamt i am not yours and
i don't mind (i already
pulled out all
my own hair there
is nothing left
to do)
