Track Name: w-und-d
we are wounded so deep
we cannot see where it ends
our whole body is consumed
by the wound
Track Name: s-b
there's something inside
it's too big to hold there
there's something inside
it's too dark in there

if you want to try to understand the way it feels
maybe try to understand a potted plant
that wants to spread its roots

in the morning
i am nothing
i am free

for a moment
i don't know
anything

there's a shadow
in the back of the room
hardly notice that it's there
but it's there
Track Name: w-k-
when we had no money we were golden
when we thought we made up what we had been
everything was different in the morning
nobody knew what to do

so i went and got up
shaking off the night song
several instant cures were
sent to my apartment
i became a hero
dreaming like a knew how

we both listened to the fireworks in the kitchen
we both listened to the fireworks in the kitchen
we made ourselves something good to eat
we made ourselves something good to eat
everybody else was asleep
everybody else was asleep

we looked around in the kitchen
and saw how we'd been living
a box of instant medicine
was the only thing in the cabinet
and we thought about the sounds we heard
was it a hand grenade or a hummingbird?
we picked up a transmission
with the absolute dimensions of our mission

we both listened to the fireworks in the kitchen
everybody else was asleep
Track Name: th-rst
silence from the marble creatures
do they even feel?
as the children all fight
for their mother to heal
i just wanna say, cause there's no other way
they're trying to take all the water away
they're trying to take all the water away

(silence)

(silence)

silence from across the land
silence from the ones with names
just silence
self-destructive silence
though out bodies are made of it

they're gonna take it all
they're gonna make us beg for it

i'm so thirsty

i could drink from the ground but it ain't legal
i could drink from the sky but it ain't legal

they're gonna take it all
they're gonna make us beg for it

i could drink from the source
but the source is owned, of course

"if we could feel the pain
then the pain would be so great
that we would end it"
Track Name: r-s-
i'm made out of lightning
made out of wind
it's just like i thought it'd be
the endless night sky and me

and if you are sleeping
i hope it's a nightmare
so maybe you'll wake in time
i hope that you wake in time

cause it's just like a move
and it's gonna end
but first is the climax
and then we can start again

what falls from the sky
what falls to the earth
is going to touch you
and it's gonna hurt

but we have the medicine
Track Name: m-rr-r
(instrumental)
