warm so warm screaming in the field as i was born worm, will you return me to the robin’s beak? i’ll be a bird terminal we both know let the rest of me go see my death become a trail and the trail leads to a flower i will blossom in your sail every dreamed and  waking hour woman, woman hold me in your heat till i remember terminal we both know let me rest, let me go see my death become a trail and the trail leads to a flower i will blossom in your sail every dreamed and  waking hour

no one can be my man be my man be my man be my man be my man be my man no one can be my woman be my woman be my woman one ear to the ground one dog at my neck one tongue to my tongue wanting to protect me  from no one can be my man be my man be my man be my man be my man be my man be my man no one can be my woman be my woman be my woman one ear to the floor  my dog barking loud couldn’t tell for sure where the screaming sound  was coming from one ear to your womb puppy on the floor baby’s coming soon wonder if she’ll know where she’s come from

womb 02:15
seven wide years and there’s soil to till when you thread your fingers through i feel quite well we could be the riptide or two mountains growing still when the eye gets heavy in the womb dripping your tears  like a precious warm spring my heart will always find you when your heart freely sings mine would never bind you with a diamond or a word when the eye gets heavy in the womb when the eye gets heavy in the womb woman, mighty woman you’re a friend i need when you hold me to your breast you’re bleeding as i bleed please reveal the question to me let the answers leave when the eye gets heavy in the womb when the eye gets heavy in the womb when the eye gets heavy in the womb when the eye gets heavy in the womb

it cannot be explained like a single membrane  same old dream from the pillow laugh along with her laugh lying when she’s lying  she gets angry i feel so is it any wonder i get lonesome for you? get out of your mind demons are the dragons  she is not a dragon but i’m afraid of her fire my heart is a wagon my heart is a wagon but i can’t push her desire is it any wonder i get lonesome for you? get out of your mind annie, my love pulls the trigger on you get out of your mind and into my arms

cradle 03:17
cradle more the hours reel cradle more how you feel baby you’re still too proud to come down maybe i’m still too loud to hear all the waves ascend and disappear like a storm, the air you steal glacial form the icy heel baby you’re still too proud to come down maybe i’m still too loud to hear all the waves ascend and disappear earth is born  to wound and heal cradle more  the hours reel baby you’re still too proud to come down maybe i’m still too loud to hear all the waves ascend and disappear

symbol 03:49
fly make flea make haste make waste eight makes infinity  times i’ve tried to make breaks, embrace for the enemy meet my face to face time try to find the diamond counting time as time counts me, the river to the island do you not do you not tell that smile always makes me well do you see circling through? that’s how one returns from two  the symbol of your love is time the symbol of your love is time
7.
blue and red horses on the run i think the angel is jumping the gun little red lantern watching my son maybe the angel is jumping the gun i’m a lot of boy, with a lot of nerve do you wanna toy with me? little red flower on your wrist maybe the angel fired and missed little red flower on your wrist  maybe the angel fired and missed i’m a lot of boy with a lot of nerve do you wanna toy with me? little red forest in your room i hope the angel is getting here soon little red forest in your room i hope the angel is getting here soon i’m a lot of boy with a lot of nerve do you wanna toy with me?

abyss kiss 03:03
try and get some rest i’ll do the rest think to what the roses find with the arms of passion  this is how we fashion  war’s worried mind in the hour i loved you  like it dream it was true in the base of my pine wilderness, vast abyss, will we ever kiss? in her mother’s fortress she was brushing horses manes and tails flicking flies naked as the window baby if it’s real, so no need to apologize wilderness, vast abyss, will we ever kiss? love is on her shoulder, love is on the boulder in the eyes, in the eye love never leaves, love is the leaves  in the sky in the sky
9.
what can you say to remind me how to be loved by you? wave to the winding river it’s a view of you for the long grass growing in silence there’s an equal knowing inside us calmly showing for to guide us pray you can find me i’ve been busy turning into more transparent i could look a lot like you for the sharp glass cutting of the cold wind the sharp glass loosing of your best friend the story bruising as it’s written rain in your bedroom this is how i love you back to follow the red moon follow her and never look back there’s a star that’s glowing on your eyelash and the wet light moaning as we rehash oh my darling what can you say to remind me how to be loved by you?

10 miles 04:01
to die in your arms your words forming again we kiss very hard and wild to rise in the dark  like birds praying on skin we pray with our oxygen Jo, nothing is real we still have that feel you’re closing up the bar i’m warming up the car ten miles away two children of ours they came twirling in we laughed very hard for a while but they’ve grown very far and tall how we miss them,  though happy they’re traveling Jo, nothing is real but we still have that feel you’re closing up the bar i’m warming up the car ten miles away we set no alarm eyes wide, six a.m. wake up on the farm slowly walk to the barn horse feed you take the yarn i’ll read, i’ll read Jo, nothing is real but we still have that feel you’re closing up the bar i’m warming up the car  ten miles away to die in your arms, your words forming again
