Track Name: Haul
Haul


In the silver eye of the storm
There is no air to breathe
Every constellation, is swallowed by solving emptiness

I sometimes imagine my death on the tracks
Is to keep that to myself, unfair to you?

I fear the depth of the sea and the darkness that sustains me
The night is shoreless

I cannot recall the last time I loved you the way that you deserve
I try almost every day and fall short
There is no way to arrive without regrets

I sometimes imagine myself a widower, with another wife
Am I untrue, if I don’t tell you?

Jettison all the pain into darkness
When the dawn chorus begins

I have lived through no great tragedy
I can’t imagine that would make me a better man
Track Name: Enshrine
Enshrine


So, this is not the year I break ground
My script burns instead on the scaffold

Follow the sun wherever it goes
I make my home, in a high wind

If I stay on the ground, nothing awaits me
I would die in sunlight or resonate

Follow the sun wherever it goes
I make my home, in a high wind

Enshrine these dreams in a golden grave
Forever carve their wane into the mountain face

If I fall down
I will crawl on
If I die, I die
Track Name: Amor Fati
Amor Fati


For a time I dreamt of a home
To be built by all of us
I even laid this new foundation
I thought a dream could be shared

But the night saw it crumble
And, I’m not my brothers’ anvil
I can stomach the poison administered
It will wear off, along with this dry spell

Set it all afire
Under this lonely moon
I won’t even try to sleep tonight

Set it afire
To acquiesce the night

Set it afire
And watch the flames

Pull these roots out of my throat
I can scale this summit alone
Though the summer sun looms like a hammer
I won’t fault it for beating me down

Return to life
On this barren soil
I will work until my hands become stone

Return to life
Without provision

Return to life
When the river flows
