Flotsam 03:48
Flotsam There is a Voice To the sea it calls me Back to the wreck Back to the sea The littered shore Flotsam far and wide The Cove is full From the pull of the tide Sinking in the bay Leaving me here A last castaway Lost to the bay Pulling me near I'm cast away There is a Light Beacon of choked youth Signal Fire Cutting through the haze Light on the wreck The cracked hull sinking mast Disappears to the depths of the past
Wormhole 04:14
Worm-hole When I break the surface When black earth erupts There’s no going back The collapse so abrupt Searching for an entrance Longing to return That pathway is wrecked There is no return What is a life? What makes a death? Illusion of connection The slow disintegration Wondering what it is to be truly alive Into the harsh world I arrive Coming up for air but the air is so dry The force of this atmosphere The pressure of forced smiles Why did I leave that earthly womb Up here it all ends much too soon A flooded pathway Unfeeling landscape A severed doorway Reluctant survey The rain that drowned tranquility The storm that came and drove me What ends a life? Defines a death? Forgotten intersection Where all roads end Who decides what it is to be alive Into the harsh world I arrive Falling through the door Hearing it slam shut You rest in peace And I slowly rot
Veil 02:42
Veil Uncultivated wild and tangled Inspiration at the right angle The breath of life like a promise We all assumed you'd made All the things only you could see The lies we both believed They are still here I remember it all Watching fabric fall At your curtain call A bullet in my chest Now the past lays in unrest Hindsight after Blindside Vision’s never been more clear Missed steps and close calls But now you're on the other side of it all Can you still hear? Can you remember at all? No, that’s my flaw When will the veil fall? Where is my curtain call? If I only knew If I only knew But we rarely do Until the deed is through
