Track Name: Pink Stallion
Wrap me in your
robe of color

Fade away the night and day
and take me to
Another world
that feels more like

Mother, Mother
When she took me to the

(in her)

Pink Stallion
Lightning striking
all around me
I’m still smiling

still alive

Face the death of paradise
as we turn into sunrise

Fade into oblivion

Wait until I see again

Wade into oblivion

Wait until I see her in my

Pink Stallion

When I first came face to face with death
Track Name: Marigold
Bury the marigold
underneath the bedroom
that you stole two kisses
from her lips

Tears were shed
morals bled
petals were plucked
something in the heart
beat like a drum

Is this love ?
I dont know
but tonight
I’m going to find out

We kiss without hesitation
no reservations
we dangle our feet
from the highest places

In the crowd of the sad
in the crowd of the mad
we are the only smiling faces

Every day and all night
‘Till the morning dawn’s bright
I don’t want to see you go

Every day and all night
Even when you’re all right
I don’t want to let you go

The morning light was blocked
by dusty dirty blinds
and I could hear
your vodka kisses shouting,

Fight ! Is this love ?
I dont know
but tonight I’m going
to find out
Track Name: Porcelain
You wilt down the hall to pour yourself over my porcelain. But I don’t mind, take your time, all your words wax absurd.

You’re not mine, folding spine, soft pale white will eat your night, over my porcelain.
Track Name: Sleep
Sleep, beautiful sleep
Crushed by weightless, reticent dreams
in a bedroom, where we only sleep
when dawn blows out the street lights
though wise men, at their end, know dark is right*

Sleep, beautiful sleep
promised kiss from a king
if you feel afraid

it will carry you into this dark night
it will carry you in this good night

Don’t worry, we will see through this
your essence

I dont know what I could do

Don’t worry, we will see through this
(I don’t know what I could do)
Don’t worry, we will see through this

your essence
my darkness
Track Name: My Majesty of Madness
Has the cat
got your tongue ?

Is the woman in your eyes
still very young ?

My Majesty of Madness,
since torn from my arms

To know you still feel at all with your heels on their throats
It makes it hard when falls are softer to keep above

The fact is I feel more alive
when I thought you died young

I found god at the bottom of the bottle
and I felt pain in a whole new way

Every night I prayed,
that I could find you in somebody new
Until I realized

That you are just somebody new
Track Name: Dirty Summer
Hear the child within me screaming
through love through
pain through shame
it keeps on breathing

My old friend, I’ll see you again
I’d do anything to be back when
I fought fire with fire

lets pretend

Your lips are thin but mine are open
I see between your teeth the skin
of seasons too dry, you eat them and fly
your mine, your mine, your mine

We will fall into others
burn our skin, forget our mothers

(remember when we were beautiful)

We will swell into summer

(remember when the wind stole our way)

Melt into

(remember when we loved everyday as)

Dirty Lovers
Track Name: Blue and Gold
Black and blue
gold and red

Anything to turn your head
so look at me

don’t just look at me

Claws of pain
undying fame,
To be the best at what I do
I just want you

I just

I know that its not like this

Is that a dimple I spy ?
I keep it simple I try
to talk to you
love struck fool

Every day and every night
before the kiss
between the fights
I still come back

I will still come back because

I know that its not like this
You know that its not like this
How could this ever be?
In an exit scene starring you and me
Im on my knees

Backdrops of black and gold
flicker into red and blues
I’m on my knees
cradling you

As gold and reds fade to
blues and blacks
anything to turn your back
so look at me
will you just look at me?

Claws of pain that
twist in shame
that tiny brittle metal ring that
once had soothed
now can only sting

Its not like this
It will never be the same
just another game that I played
with you
I will never act the fool
You knew

You knew
Track Name: Marfa
You were seeing
soft pale moons

Closing their eyelids
too soon
Track Name: When It Was Good
I close my eyes to see the sky
I bite my lips to feel again
How could I pour my blood for something so sure?
Knuckles turned white, I’ll bleed for my word

Grind my teeth into the breeze
you held me locked without the keys
now on elbows calloused knees
I’ve fallen in the land of hands where the blind can see

You swallowed me whole
You swallowed me whole

I’ve seen devils in the hills
angels, hands filled with pills
Eyes closed, breath held,holding still
as not to stir, the purest morning fir

When it was Good

Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god
I see I see I see

see a brave new world
It’s crashing down around me

It’s crashing down around me
It’s crashing down

When It was Good
Track Name: What's The Matter?
Wake up in a cloud of smoke
You’re swallowing, swallowing, swallowing me
down to where you said you’d set me free

I can see you there
You’re sitting there
You’re hands tied to your hair

I can’t believe in you

Just a matter of time
Just a matter of space
It’s a matter of
What’s the matter of

What’s the matter ?

I can see you there
You’re sitting there,
You’re hands tied to your hair

I can’t believe in you
Track Name: I Dream of Water
I lose touch when you love me too much

Thats not how it is world,

when I have a knife to your back and you’re screaming

how love is so draining

but pain is just water and
we’re just floating filling in the holes with the filth

thats all we have
I dream of water when I’m dying of thirst

I dream of water pulling me under
