Lungless 04:41
Speak to the rubble falling around your understatements/ Speak to the silent sounds of the rubble falling between your little hands/ Speak to the silent accompaniment to your pulse's symphony/ Speak to the quiet lives you'll live.
On the Coals 03:10
Bleak now. Caught in the cobwebs that cling all around your dread/ Caught in the prior folds. Hum, still. Freed of the rubble that fell all around your past/ Caught in the present flow. [After long we're in the garden:] Look in the pool Sit and ponder and think about it [Blooms with us a new serenity:] Look in the pool Sit and ponder and think about it
Contention 05:17
In, out/ Deep, slow/ Calm, ease/ Smile, release./
Built On Air 10:48
You could have done things the way you wanted... "Somehow." Canorous-flow present/ An hour passed. One-second past. An Insight Drip between Both perspectives Amidst us Amidst dust Drip Between A loosed grip
