Don't Wanna Be Without Ya

Say…What if we reincarnate

And whatever god said, “it’s your turn for choosing”

Would you rather come back, be born in a circle?

See the oldest garden, the crescent is fertile.

-

Or would you prefer to see life underwater?

Only knowing oceans, have hundreds of daughters

There’s a part of hope that is sewn in this theory

Give me any species and keep yourself near me

Make it easy

-

I don’t wanna be without ya

Ahhh-ahh

If you start over, can I redo mine too?

Anything you become

Lemme run beside you

(Go a little bit farther)

-

So what if

-

I managed to mess up a sequence

And I had to come back as one of your hairpins

I know that the morning I’m born in your tresses

Would be more than worth it adorning some Goddess

Being honest

-

I don’t wanna be without ya

Ahhh-ahh

If you start over, can I redo mine too?

Anything you become

Lemme run beside you

Go a little bit farther

-

Put it on me

Every night

You shoulda died

For a better view of the moon

Back of your belt

Held on tight

But I fell with you

I could see us being young lovers in a fable

That could be us, it could

Over and Over

Becoming, Become

-

Menagerie, imagine me babe

Eloise

Preamble

Gallop ahead, blink of an eye

Thorough the bread

Winners are fine, leave em for dead

We got a mind to go

Get a buzz off a deity

Sober up in your clutch is a remedy

You’ve

Bitten me once, doubly shy

Double the guns

Helluva sight, barrel of fun

You and I

Won a badge on the radio

Pin it up hear us in the mirror go

Eloise

We could be a gunfighter

Unlatching all the bailing wire

Eloise, lemme see your sweet face

Come face me

-

Chin up! We’re young & in the dark

We saw him resurrect in a muscle car

There was an Oracle

We heard there was a light show

-

Hotter than a June kiss

I’m blushing a shade of licorice

Croon with your night lungs

That old Cicada love song

-

Holy broken Heart

A meaning-well American Abattoir

You’re around us, oh

Be around us

-

Someone close our eyes

Make it so that we can find you

In our imagination

A magic eye

In the photo under

We look like a gunfighter

Modeled after Autry

Or maybe Annie O

And we can trick shoot bottles

And everyone aims slow

-

Oh, c’mon

Be a gunfighter baby

With you

We could be a gunfighter

For always

We could be a gunfighter

Oh Oh Oooooh

We could be a gunfighter

Wendigo

Look at your smile, babe
I won’t have to loan you mine
I’m right behind
Where you go I go for life
If it be the deep north
Then I’ll follow after
For the cold is like a wendigo
Not a real fear
Like a rapture

-

old incantation
say my name 3 full times
usher and tell you…

-

that I’ve been broken
I can become
Any miracle you need

-

look in the mirror, babe
look at the one I’m with
the face I kiss
you and me, for keeps, it is
If your memory freezes
Then I will remind you
That the cold is like a wendigo
Full of fiction
Like a blood moon

-

old incantation
say my name 3 full times
usher and tell you…

-

that I’ve been broken
I can become
Any miracle you need

Double Heart

Our clothes on the shore, I know, is not the best place to start
Although, undeniable, you’ve captured half of my double heart

-

please go fall apart
thump and flood, restart
c’mon double heart

-

your mind, not the same as mine, it’s blood and wine it’s myth and man
but still, I can drink my fill and hope you will be close at hand

-

please go fall apart
thump and flood, restart
c’mon double heart

-

keep or let go, it’s worth it
c’mon double heart
c’mon double heart

There's a lot of us in here

Some hex please
A pitch black painted wreath
A book nailed to a tree
Or a vow that you whisper when burying old baby teeth
We’ll ride drogue you’ll see
We will genuflect accordingly
A crude but truthful plea:
Dispossess me of all of this shit that keeps possessing me

-

You salvage me
Cloven a thousand times
Make believe that we
Blown apart could be
Woven and redesigned

-

we would rather be sent running off a cliff edge
we can hold our own palaver and the viper caused it
hanged men, fang bred
Oh come send us on

-

You salvage me
Cloven a thousand times
Make believe that we
Blown apart could be
Woven and redesigned

-

sever the hoof and host or
I may
be without someone to call for
one thing more
let em’ make You and offer now
free graze
jaw to tusk, all of us, Oh come send us on

Salome & Saint Procula

Make a big show of it, we both know what you did
I keep my promises
A silver platter down, forerunner over now,
You made your mama proud

=

Nobody ever comes too close
To knowing all the things that we do
To change things
Dust, if you must
Make it so nobody loves us
As long as you know
Someone won’t turn a cheek
so the rest of you can follow

=

Go ahead, keep sleeping, stay
Your dreaming came too late
This whole thing’s underway
They won’t be reasoned with, I still don’t know what He did
I wash my hands of Him

=

Nobody ever comes too close
To knowing all the things that we do
To change things
Dust, if you must
Make it so nobody loves us
As long as you know
Someone won’t turn a cheek
so the rest of you can follow

Someone has to
Someone has to

Part 1 Visiting

You’re scared of me, most seem to be
Truth told you don’t know I’m already gone
See what they bring, is versions of “me”
That said, I don’t choose, all I do is move

=

now you know that I’m incapable
of choosing who to visit, how to do it, even when I can go
how to tell you, well, let me see
that I’m just like you, I bend the knee

=

a certainty, taxes and me,
ginned up, try to cope, but you ought to know
that I will get paid, don’t hate my wage
better yet, settle in, come and make a friend

=

now you know that I’m incapable
of choosing who to visit, how to do it, even when I can go
how to tell you, well, let me see
that I’m just like you, I bend the knee

=

I’m just like you
I bend the knee

Part 2 Smitten

Came upon a cave, 30 years or so, before the thing they fuss about
They fuss about when I come to gather You
When You’re old enough to speak, You will undo me
I’ll have no doubt, I’ll have no throat to close my hands around
But for now just sleep
I’ll be here when you wake

=

Because I came, here am I, I’m here to see Your face
To look upon the Great Unmaker
I want You to come and say everything to me
Everything to me

=

I came, here am I, I’m here to see Your face
Look upon to Great Unmaker
I want You to come and say everthing to me
I want you to come and save everything
Save everything from me
