GARDENS AND PLANTINGS

 

Bone of My Bone

Skin on my bone wrapped around

Like a ribbon unraveled to the ground

300 years passing down

It's the only way we ever knew how
When reaching wasn't favored

A bud moves towards the sun

Our sentimental raging

A call that beckons home

You sit like a hum

Inside of all my thoughts

And it feels like a war

But this just isn't love

This you wanted

Did you want this?

Slam all the doors on your way out

I can feel the vibration on the floor

Walking around in the garden

Only gathering thorns 

What could I do better?

It was the best I had

Your rising fragile manhood

Just wanted to be loved

You sit like a hum

Inside of all my parts

And it feels like a war

But this just isn't love

This is what know

Did you want this?

Bone of my bone

Bone of my bone

Bone of my bone

Interlude on Crestline

There was

Just beauty

Inside

Unknowing

 

Over The Garden Wall

Over the garden wall

Are purple vines that bloom

With their mouths open wide

Drinking in all the good

And on the other side

Your patient hands align

And our eyes open wide

Peeking in through the cracks (of the stone)

 I

I was not myself

I know you know that now

When I went wandering wide

Over the garden wall

Are purple vines that bloom

Over the garden wall

I lost myself and you

I'm coming

Gravity Wells

Take off your clothes

And count every bone

Even the ones in the yard

That you put a garden on

Carry your heart

Around like a lighting rod

Pumping and all exposed 

Waiting to get struck

I just want you here now

You're pulled into your gravity wells

That pull in everyone else

And I just want you here now

Dance on the edges

Circle the room

Even when you stop the walls will still move

It's rudimentary 

What you do to yourself

With noone around you'd fight with the echos

I just want you here now

You're pulled into your gravity wells

That pull in everyone else

And I just want you here now

I just want you here

For Us

When the moon hung low

So softly fallen

Like it had something more left to say

Just like your eyes

A message was hiding

And pushing behind you

Like the crest of a wave

I hear you, I hear you

So don't say anything

The silence has spoken

For us

Just like a dream

A ghost I was seeing

Or a passing figure

Writing notes on the mirror

I knew you where there

I feel you, I feel you

So don't even move

We'll sit in this still moon

For us

There's hope

For us

Someone That Knows You

A crack in the blinds laid trails in the wood

A slow moving light that curled in like the morning

And tracing the cracks on the cold knotted floor

Laying down seeds in the breaks

Quiet along the street right before it

Puffs from it's mouth it's sirens and smoke

And the dust from the city slow dancing in gold

Moves like the morning

Or like a steady song

Or like someone that knows you well

WANING

 

Wildfire

I see smoke from the shore

City covered in black clouds

I say words to the dark

Cause my mother said that'd protect us

When everything's burning down
Everything's burning down

Don't you even care?

My ribs feel heavy

From the weight full in my chest

No, I can't breathe here

In or out

When everything's burning down

Everything's burning down

Don't you even care?

I can't breathe here

In this wild fire

When everything's burning down

Everything's burning down

What do we do now?

Don't you even care?

Two Shadows

I look from the window sill

To the rain falling,

humming words

Blinds spill light on my cheek

Just to remind me two sides of it

And I was always good alone

Until you taught me how to love

I always fought you running

Taking shelter where I could

Our love is like

Two shadows dancing under street lights

Wandering through the night

To nowhere

And I hope we never get there

Your touch is like a verse

Painting poems on my chest

I will hold your song

There's nothing better to be said

Our love is like

Two shadows dancing under street lights

Wandering through the night

To nowhere

And I hope we never get there

Bottom Line

Pay a visit to your shadow

I'll hold the light

We can swim through darkness

And see what's inside

To find the bottom line

You've been digging into me

Looking for a sign

But I'm don't have the antidote

For you to be fine

Or to find the bottom line

Everything you want in me

Is everything you want in you

I am only a mirror

An echo of the truth

I am a reflection of you

I am a reflection of you

To find the bottom line

To See (My Heart)

Oh, my heart

Whispered to me

A breeze of autumn gold

Lighting up the woods

Oh, alone

The dark was gone

I stood inside it's warmth

Protected in the open floor

My eyes are opening

Like a flower blossoming

My eyes are opening

To see my heart

Petals from the wind came to fill my hand

My eyes are opening

Like a flower blossoming

My eyes are opening

To see my heart

Back of My Hands

Look at the back of my hands

I don't know them that well

Know myself that well

Wait...

An old layer sheds off

A new one emerges up

How can I know myself?

Self

Wait...

Lay me in my bed

Let life take it's last breath

Before I rest

And live again, again

Wait...

Wait...
