an elegiac white hand in the sky that catches your body when it plummets from joy's arching plateaus which crumble beneath your feet as you tether a chain of ghosts around your throat & the sun and snap your neck with the stars

Track Name: Time, Time, Time
falling backwards through an upset mind

there is nothing left to you but time

time, time, time
make it work
time, time, time
make it work
why, why, why
won't it work
time, time, time
make it work

contorting with every falsity

yearning shambles never set you free

time, time, time
make it work
time, time, time
make it work
why, why, why
won't it work
time, time, time
make it work

(!)

time, floating backwards...
time, floating backwards...
time, floating backwards...
time, floating backwards...
Track Name: These Unreal Hours (Zealots Suite - 1)
in glass morning the night is still hulking, we

re arrange all our ceilings and look to see

all the places and people to be and the way

our cruel faces do undo their seams


and these unreal hours fetter

our dreams to which we are tethered and

we could make us feel better and

we could make us feel better


lorca lullaby carnation sleep and dream

all the while the horse still won't drink from the stream

in the sky is a portraiture see all the absence,

the absence, ambivalent trees


and these unreal hours feather

our dreams to which we are tethered and

we could make us feel better and

we could make us feel better


as we are, oh

just as we are, oh

as we are, oh

just as we are, oh


in glass morning the night is still hulking, we

re arrange all our ceilings and look to see

all the places and people to be and the way

our cruel faces do undo their seams


and these unreal hours tether

our dreams to which we are tied

oh and we could make us feel better

and we could make us feel right
Track Name: Never Know Why (Zealots Suite - 2)
why do I keep thinking of things then
over and over
why do I keep looking for the end
over and over
maybe it's the way that I look in the mirror
in the morning when the mirror is a liar and I can't see myself
never no no never know never know why never know no never know

oh oh oh oh

why do I keep falling in myself
over and over
while memories keep sinking in deep wells
over and over

oh oh oh oh

why do I keep falling in myself
over and over
why do I keep falling in myself
over and over

la yi ya yi ya, la yi ya yi ya
la yi ya yi ya oh la yi ya yi ya
Track Name: Shake, Don't Shiver
the wondrous stereophonic sound

of your supple effusing

motions careening

everywhere inbetweening

sine wave smile oscillate

all the while weight drifts to dust


all your boarded windows now

a fountain of fantastic

debris ripped ruthlessly

from broken frames by new feeling

ghostly voices grab your palms

lead you in the unknown red sun


shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver


all of your delusions are

delusions of delusions

and your body movements are

thunderclaps in bobby pins

strewn in scatter-shot about

turning all the earth's dirt to mud


your busted lips purse to kiss

blood on those who forgot when

sky was just a face and no

implications lied within

hopes are tinged aggressions and

thoughts are just displacements of time


shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver

break your body, quake don't quiver
Track Name: Birds of Genet
my heart's in my hand
and my hand is pierced, and my hand's in
the bag, and the bag
is shut, and my heart is caught

soul strings plucked on porcelain
her fingers are washing away
in memory novocaine
again
falling backwards like the spring
softly awakening
somewhere the birds do sing

my hand's in my heart
and my heart is pierced, and my heart's in
my hand, and my hand
is shut, and my heart, is caught

soul strings plucked on porcelain
her fingers are washing away
in memory novocaine
again
falling backwards like the spring
softly awakening
somewhere the birds do sing

birds of prey, birds of genet
birds of genet, birds of prey

[enter wilderness]
Track Name: Stephanie in Stone
another day
and on her way
she goes home
on a train
stephanie's gone on home
stephanie's trapped in stone
she's drowning all the time
all we do is undo her mind
stephanie's trapped in stone
stephanie's trapped in stone

at home
the furnace melts the wall
the bedbugs crawl from door to hall
poor stephanie, poor stephanie
it's faint. and every bit of darkness
is paint which covers up the outlets
poor stephanie, poor stephanie

outside
a rhythm drifts in
a truer thought begins
on a halted breeze
she sharks to her knees
stephanie's all alone now
stephanie's trapped in stone now
stephanie speaks
conterminously
talking to the trees
moonaged stephanie

and on
the spattered cloud in song
resolve on swaddled second skin
and stephanie, and stephanie
the rain unknown in perfect silence
the trains afloat in hollow violence
and stephanie, dream stephanie

(exit)

lightyears
piercing the skies
my dears
you'll never die

lightyears
piercing the skies
my dears
you'll never die

lightyears
piercing the skies
my dears
you'll never die

lightyears
piercing the skies
our fears
will always die
