Haul 03:13
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
Enshrine 03:15
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
Amor Fati 03:44
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
