Track Name: The Horse's Mouth
I'm too young to be this sick.
I'm a mess before I know the truth to it.

All the wires, darkness overwhelms desire
to live or in giving.

I have been made a part in it.
Oh, the morning: the moment where I lived in warming.

The horse's mouth and the lighthouse that came out
tears holes into us.

I believe in one abyss.
I will succumb.
The righteous ones have had their fun.
We don't get to fuck with it.
Track Name: Curse
I get lost, too.
I don't blame you.
You caught my curse for a while.
I found it don't shame you.

Well, I've been wandering safe inside.
And I know you've got your shit to hide.

But in the volcano, you had a hard time finding the heat.
And I've seen you scratching the skin from
your teeth when you fever dream.

You caught my tongue for a while.
Salted my earth.
I sent you back into the wild.
Ash to my hearth.

Toss me in the frigid sea, water all around me.
I feel as it claws through my skin.
I desire simple things: the bones in my mouth
as I breathe and I spit out my sin.
My skin is pulling apart now.
Track Name: California As An Entity
California as an entity had passed through me.
I saw shining lights inside of what had died in me.

You wouldn't want to live this curse.
Imagine all the lessons learned so far taught in reverse.
Can we please get in your car?

Our holy psalms go on and on.
We wrestle right on through the dawn.

And when I tell you that
the breeze between the trees pleases me,
you grow bored beyond belief.

All our friends have gone and died.
Don't you look surprised.
