Don't focus on the light from the moon Hold a candle to the trash in my room You wrote a note that I can't understand See, my fingers weren't a part of my hand And the veil loosely covering my face It fell down to the ground, now you see everything You don't want to see me when you're not feeling good So I try to rearrange in the truth of your words You wrote a note that I can't understand See, my fingers weren't a part of my hand And the veil loosely covering my face It fell down to the ground, now you see everything I can't remember if I'm right or I'm wrong When I try to gauge the difference "You've been gone for so long" Speaking words I chose not to hear See, my head wasn't attached to my ears Picked up the veil from the grass I see nothing but black

Animate Dust 03:27
I want to take another chance to find another way But I left, yeah I left I want to take another chance to find another way But I left, yeah I left Lost in a game, we are torn by the same silent man I will know but I won't understand How sorry you are I'm not looking for someone to blame I want to take another chance to breathe the dirty air But I left, yeah I left I want to take another chance to see another day But I left, yeah I left One and the same, we carry the weight when we bleed The blight in our flowering weeds We are animate dust It's all that's sufficient today
3.
Trust 04:02
Too much consumption that trumps creation So many images, obliteration I could see how late the sun sets But I'm installing new reality Proliferate our new appendages That relay all our new messages So many strangers up on the beach head Kicking sand on the driftwood There's a child and a dog there Drinking tea instead of coffee In the morning in a friends house Walls and Bridges chiming in again Forget everything I know again Separate absurdity to visualize and make me clean It disappears to reappear Remembering your absence Trust heart of stone Trust microphone Trust Animism Trust Barbituism Trust the policy And you won't tip the balance

Is it really what you think? Or is it just what you say you think? When you're out looking for a fight, and there is no fight You can't give what you take I can't keep what you steal I can't process what you push Write the letter in red ink, in a pale white room It takes a lot to change a mind Is it really how you feel? Or is it just how you say you feel? When you're out looking for the sun, and there is no sun You can't touch what isn't real You can't describe the sublime You can't force what isn't there A simple armature of your ideal world It takes a lot to change a mind
5.
In a bed Eyes are closed but I feel the floor Leaves are dead In my mind their full contour formed, coarse and gleaming I see what I can't see Soft delight Yellow squares consistently Tinge of spring Ambidextrous and textural Skill to fling Bonded language describes the tree Feeling human Broken harness of sight divides Leaves are dead In my mind the full contour lies
6.
There's no one left to side with Nothing left but paper on the wall Leave the rent under the door Maybe I'll see you around? Pretty soon you'll let your guard down Life will seems so easy for a while Sneak a smile to a friend, sleep another night Until your fear comes back again Wake up with the lights on A frame of understanding Where do all the birds go in a freeze? Check your email in a dream Reality feels cheap Brand new manic brain holder An interactional equation I can't see Holding back when I want to give Forget what I need to say Belief beyond routine, when I can't see you anymore There's no one left to side with Nothing left but paper on the wall Leave the rent under the door Maybe I'll see you around?

i'm afraid i'll meet infinity The sugar cube, the laced veneer Float above this tiny city i see a house i see a bird An inventory of your memory Is it still the same as yesterday A simple useless allegory My mist believes every lie Possessing bright subderrmal beacons Warding off the blurred attack Eating crickets off windshield My stomach full My hair is combed We all elected a new passenger Who has a foot But has no legs If I drink, I die I eat, I am fine What am I? it's so pretty what you did for me it's so pretty what you did for me burn every molecule inside of me it's so pretty what you did for me

My voice is not my body It's impossible to hold a voice In between is where you found me Did I win an advance? Did I suffer a defeat? 'Cause I could sing a song of love that never happened Heart crimes left uncommitted My voice is not my mind It feels impossible to think the thought That I'm doomed to make my meaning In the arbitrary aether So afraid of what I can't see When I finally let the thought die Discarding dreams in every place I've lived I'll remember you completely Destroying sand mandalas Colors drifting into air
11.
Feeble person in the waiting position Breathing air, elated to be blissful Grab another chair, move it to the table Look at the menu, we're all willing to be patient Reflecting silver tip, an unexpected presentation Did I wake up in this room? Is it still dark? Am I still dreaming? Vapor from upstairs reminds me of reminding Adjacent to the fact That when I'm sleeping there's no harm done Silent person with the giving precision Kicking mud, distaste in disbelieving It's good to back home Hope not to give more than I'm getting Impress my memory I can't believe that I'm forgetting Impress my memory I can't believe that I'm forgetting
