Track Name: It's Over
---

It’s over

it’s a lost space

and it’s overly lost space

and then and now

then and again

Come, ask me for another

I’ll say

it’s over for now

but later I’ll think

then and now

then and again

It’s lost

It’s space

It’s over

but I’m not

and you’re not

We’re not a life

we’ve left a space

Track Name: WAR

WAR

Fear, within a square
sensory/shape less
there seems to be
no feeling (sense), there seems
to be no reason (sense),
there seems to
not be any –
unbounded: that was inside.
heading towards a line, angle
the wind colder
a voice barking
consequential
thoughts/sides taken
pressure like
blood (and the
smell of) pushing back –
maybe crossing: that was outside.

WATCH ME WATCHING
THE DAY PASSES WITH A WITNESS
DIZZY
THE GUARD

Failure, the structures collapsing, and the question is asked, what gives you hope, and the asker needs to know. What gives you hope is passing it around, the asker says, the saving each other, from falling, saving again, from failure, the structures, saving from, again, from collapsing, structures saving, from falling again, from failure again from

...the choice to face...to collide...suicide...to determine...embrace...hate...one...all one...

We are ?
relat – ed
After many raised
knives, thrones
cuts ? and
band – ed.
We were ?
rift – ed.
A war like this
war you,
my, I, We
are re –
lated.
Practicing the words,
the thoughts,
in my head.

Track Name: and I will
---

A fortress common,

fragile.

We got tired

of being exposed

and semi

cut open

tragedies

awaiting

tragedies.

Wanting to take comfort

in a resolution, no:

Pieces, juxtaposed,

ill-fitting jigsaw,

is it beauty?

is it beautiful?
