Negative One 02:41
Negative one is eggs rolling over in the pot. Saying “I love you” down the phone stood unblinking in the airport. Who was I before? Last to move is last to grow. It finally clicks; if you’re paying attention it’s 666 Sucking your thumb, next to unknown and knowing no one. Luck isn’t dumb when it’s the only thing you can rely on. Negative charm swept in your arms I really realise Negative one a slap on the wrist is making mince meat

Doors 02:48
Puddles of bobby pins, mountains of credit cards, Dale Downer pushes to the back of the bus. Death mask waiting in a bag at the dry cleaners Black shoe shopping for the queen of dust Yes it’s all genuine; yes it’s all counterfeit, Knowing the difference is a culture for idiots. Doors you can’t open with the keys you were given I resort to digging through the puddles of bobby pins, mountains of credit cards Photos of monuments, statues of Stalinists, Vida loca bleeding in the back of the Volkswagen. Photos of monuments, statues of credit cards, Things are getting better not that it was ever too hard. Doors you can’t open with the keys you were given I go back to digging… Doors you can’t open with the keys you were given I go back to digging through the puddles of bobby pins, mountains of credit cards. Puddles of bobby pins Mountains of credit cards

Piran 03:50
Mothers in the riviera Tin, copper, china miners Piran when the dust has settled: “Ashes to riches; holy holy” Bringers of the executions, Unitary lizard saviours, 456 and under 30s True romantic triple river Preaching to the new aesthetic, Is that another cup of softened water? You know I’m usually on board but this time it’s personal Surf’s up Building big inside your shadow, Cotton webbing round your ankles, Sitting with the bases loaded, Knock you down until you’re nothing
4.
Weight 02:22
Trying to sleep off the weight gain like stomach pain Was too much of a good thing; too much ice cream. I wish I could say I was impressed The laughter; the flattening The internet is levelling The internet is everything Lay me down Lay me down Honestly Lay me down Weigh me down Weigh me down Oh to sleep Lay me down Choking on the pit and peachy keen, Reality exists in Ponzi schemes, I wish I had your agility The fridge is full, the lights are on There’s nothing new, the lights are on Lay me down Lay me down Honestly Lay me down Weigh me down Weigh me down Oh to sleep Lay me down Trying to sleep off the weight gain I wish I could say it’s working The internet is levelling The internet is everything

Book II 02:50
Book II, start in the middle Work your way around to the end of the middle. Look through something that you’re missing We’re getting closer every day to finally beginning. Art is blood and getting fed up It’s “over and done” It’s nowhere to run En route; static in a cop car And when they fall in love it still means nothing Look through straight to the middle Work your way around to the end of the middle Book II; another dimension There’s violence everyday Pay no attention
6.
Slasher 03:19
Greyed out left the shower on; I predicted tears at the marathon I predicted lines on a page, I self satisfied for an age. Henceforth all my references Shall be written out like condolences: Just lines on a page. Couldn’t bear to bare it all Couldn’t bear to sing a song But to laugh at something so sad And you forget it’s what you don’t have Stupid stars melting on the blue Stupid me and stupid you Might bare it all Half truths and a finger knot People cross their hearts up until they’re caught. People stop and start, people start and stop. People never cry when they’re out of luck. Eyes dart with a poison tip Force it til it fits fits fits fits fits fits. Tethered to the one you love, You only hurt the one you love. Couldn’t bear to bare it all, Couldn’t bear to sing a song, But to laugh at something so sad, You forget it’s what you don’t have. Stupid stars melting on the blue Stupid me and stupid you Might bare it all You don’t have the time to breakdown anymore, If desire is desire Would you give in to control? Tongue in cheek Gets hard to beat Who’s keeping score? Slashing tire after tire You don’t want me anymore
7.
Ring of hands; circle always empty Leave a lasting epitaph: “The acting Queen of Purse Strings” I surmise your eyes are rolling glibly Pithy sighs that can’t betray the tissues on the car seat. Round the room a plastic page When you bend is when I break. Burn the bridge at either end,
 When you break is when I Winter creaks, reflections on a window, Looking through the mirror as you’re miming back to cradle Gathered here; bluebirds in the briar field, It’s just the name you gave to me I call Round the room a plastic page When you bend is when I break. Burn the bridge at either end,
 When you break is when I bend To your will and to your health. In your wavering of hands that Slap your back, they ebb and swarm, When you end the drape gets torn.

Idle 03:51
stillness is a luxury, rise and sink in to the sheets. shutting down is agony, costs too much to blink and breathe glue me to the biofeed, forget your needs just hit the peaks terror is an urban scream unreleased when fear is free maybe you’re too soft, working your ass off baby it’s hard to under the bus. when there are nightmares over the daydreams over the doldrums bigger than us. maybe you’re too tough, working your hands rough i bet it’s nothing i couldn’t top cross the line It’s funny how a ceiling can shut you in cross the line pencil thin and hard to watch, seeds just stick and starve you’re caught hanging like an undone belt, you tell yourself you tell yourself: what you want is what you get i’m sorry if i seem upset it’s just been it’s just been a long week maybe you’re too soft, working your ass off baby it’s hard to under the bus. when there are nightmares over the daydreams over the doldrums bigger than us. maybe you’re too tough, working your hands rough i bet it’s nothing i couldn’t top crossing the line again funny how a ceiling can shut you in crossed the line had jennifer had jonathan spun every web that one could spin flung everything in to the bin had jennifer had jonathan had jennifer had jonathan

Party Up 04:18
I’m coming up to ruin the party. At once a new glory! I’m only texting to say that it’s not working out. Your sides are splitting; “So this is winning?” Looked slower in movies but I can’t place the feeling. Woke up still dreaming. What lies beyond mindless? Absolute kindness and Someone who stands at the side to towel you off But I’m coming up so watch out
