Track Name: Friendly Homes
defanged & declawed, the tigers have found me and i don't care
the boroughs were swarming with such average stylings, looks, & loves
& i was floating alone around a crowded room
when i should break bonds & sail on to California
(spend time ready to go)

sad true, I try to get to you through trip wires and glue
halos worn and thin, they don't mean a thing

these arms are made of ships, i've felt their anchors weight
so caviler in context, indifference kept at bay
it's a mere mouth in a midwestern state
these hands are made of wood, i've felt their splinters
they're white as winter they're black as cinder in a midwestern state
Track Name: Sunspotting
i think i'm gonna find my sea legs, i am drifting on
summer spots they caught me gleaming, my ocean arms are home
& i swear i could love it always if summer stayed the same
i feel like i felt when i'm dreaming when wolves forgot my name
i think i'm gonna find my sea legs

you swim with lively arms, you wade with lifeless arms
we swim in summer lakes sunspotting in landlocked states

i took my lessons, all of my learnings, threw them in the ocean, burned all my earnings

weight turned to flight, lifting my shoulders
(warped teeth, soft lift, haunting all of these corners)
time heals wounds that pin us like boulders
struggling, washed out, carry present to former)
breath held so long our voices were strangers
(gasping, trying so hard to rearrange this)
imperfect, we're human, we're not divine rearrangers
(longing too form from devine rearrangers)
Track Name: Gold Cobra
where have you gone love? what have you done?
you've been gone for a whole year, darling it's so clear
kiddo, go slow

what'd you think the world it wouldn't change for you?
what'd you think i'd go and stay the same for you?

when you left home we drew figures of stars
constellations that correlate with the contours of your face
we dropped into foxes holes & braced ourselves for the flood

what bleeding hearts we've become, we fall in love with anyone who can keep us warm with such a cold, limited reach
what foolish hearts we've become, we thought that we would feel the sea salty breeze in the cracks & the skin of our teeth
what crooked hearts hearts we've become, we kill ourselves in our sleep, our waking thoughts are not ours, just a perception we keep
we callous hearts we've become, we thought that we could hold to the changing tide we rode on, the changing tone towards defeat

what'd you think the world it wouldn't change for you?
what'd you think i'd go and stay the same for you?

i shared my last demands in faith to you & no one else & now that you're gone i can't describe my wait to anyone, & you came back with bags already packed, i'll never wait for you to be back again, & i hate the state i'm in but even more i hate the state you're headed towards

& i love you when i'm with you, but i'm not home
i feel the weight of the world when you say, "i'm your worst mistake."
