Hold Me While The World Burns

Incredulovely

Well I been thinkin' about you and me
and I'm flabbergasted
How'd you find where I was hidin'
I thought all my luck was spent on being born a white American something

Yet here we are turning a corner
Falling face first into every best year of our lives so far
And I'm gobsmacked gonna need a mop
My jaw is melting through the cracks in the floor

Nevermind it's probably good for the blanketflowers
Feedin' the bees and the birds

But where the hell did you come from?
And how'd you get my name?

What's Your Name Again?

Might catch you later on
When the lights are low
Ask if you're still vibin'
Or if you wanna go?

Runnin' through the rain
I offer you my coat
Part ways as it's clearing
And the sun begins to glow

Don't wanna say goodbye
You're the best I've ever known

What's your name again?
This your cardigan?
Could we meet again?
Where's my car again?

Next To Me

Love the way my nails go
Clack, clack, clack
On the keyboard and smoothly down your back

There's nothing that I love more
Than seeing you over and under
But mostly just right here

Next to me

Love the way your smile just
Cuts a seam
In the cloudy clouds that cloud my dreams

Even there I feel you
Over and under but mostly just right here

Next to me


Skin

Like ripples through the water
Or a spark through a filament
There's something in my shoe
I've only just noticed

When you touched my skin
I remembered I had it
Before there was nothing
Between me and the world

But then you reminded me
Of where I am sitting
And how I'm something worth touchin'
Something worth holdin', here by this fire

When you touched my skin
I remembered I had it


Don't Forget to Call Me

I don't care what you call me
Just don't call me late for dinner
I don't care much what you say
Just as long as you'll stay

Keep that umbrella over my head
Still the same person that don't like to get wet
Can't stress enough how much I still hunger for your love

So I'll say:

Don't care what you call me, just don't forget to call me

And the truth is I really do care
But I'd follow you anywhere

So I'll say: 

Don't care what you call me, just don't forget to call me

Come Up and Meet Me

Wake up in the morning time
Expect to see you there
But it's only the sun
Breathe in the lonely air
And sip on my coffee
As I wait for the sun to...
Come up and meet me

I'd like to stay high for the rest of my life
But the ground always seems to
Come up and meet me

I'd like to stay in the morning time
But the sun always seems to
Come up and meet me

Wake up wake up wake up it's only 9:15!


And They Laid Together

I wanna see beneath your feathers
All rimed with the dawn-lit frost
So fly away with me to somewhere better
And reclaim the time we've lost

The minutes of our morning pass slowly
A single line alone on the page
"And they laid together..."

Tonight

Tonight
I will hang myself
From the stars
By my toes
By the flat of my back against the slick grass of this dewy field

Tonight
I will cut myself free
From the sandbags
Weighing my canvassed dreams
Roiling and flapping
In the winds of cold and quiet mornings

Tonight
I will kill
My anger
With its honeyed crest
And bitter poisoned root

Tonight
I will do
No harm

Jesus Would Never

You consigned yourself to a hell of your own making
Makin' idols of assimilation about what it means to love

But God didn't say that
And Jesus would never say that
So you shouldn't either

I think the friends that I've lost and the tears that I've shed for them
Watered flowers at my feet
I'd rather be standing in dirt though
I'd rather be burning my toes with 'em on the asphalt
Than cooling my heels with them someday in the clouds
Why'd you have to be so hateful? And so goddamn loud?

Go fuck yourselves!
No... Go love yourselves...
Work that log right outta your eye...

'Cause God didn't say that
And Jesus would never say that
So I guess I shouldn't either


Matti Joy

It's Matti now, if you don't mind
But if you do hey it's fine
I'll be there to remind you every time
Because I want you to be better

But it's your right to be forgetful
Or just an asshole
It's right there in the Declaration of Independence
And what a great piece of work that is
With its "merciless Indian savages"

Yea that ain't it, it's gotta go
Along with all these other prejudiced weeds
You continue to let grow
There's no flower, it's just a thorn
And it's been draining me dry
Since the day I was born

So it's Matti now.

Yea it's Matti now, if you don't mind
But if you do hey it's fine
I'll be there to remind you ever time
Because I want you to be better

No Hand Me Down Manipulation

Well I been thinking bout the way you talked to me when I was just a child 
The shit you’d say it gave me nightmares kept me rolling in my bed all night, all night 

I didn’t sleep a wink before I turned 18 can’t imagine why 
The twisted dreams they whispered of such awful things and told me I would die and burn in those fires 

And I ain’t even mad about it 
But I ain’t gonna pass it on to my kids 

How could you say such awful things 
How could you say it how could you pray it 
How could you elect the man to make it 
How couldn’t you tell it was a scheme 
Born from the great and terrible beast 
That sacrifices all that you love 
From the earth or from above 
It doesn’t matter 
You gotta be better 
But if you can’t 
Just know 

I ain’t even mad about it 
But I ain’t gonna pass it on to my kids

End of Stars

And the stars 
Glitter with their family 
Never take time to see 
The reach of humanity 
  
And the cars 
Run the track endlessly 
Turn left incessantly 
Refuel but never free 

And the stars 
Glow with iridescent glee 
Run the track endlessly 
Never take time to see 

That the cars 
Run the track endlessly 
Never take time to see 
The violence in vanity


Unbound

Hundreds if not thousands of miles overground 
With a child on her back 
Fleeing from the press gangs way back home 

Over sand, stone, jungle and the harshest land 
Long stolen from her people 
Toward something that might just look like hope 

Yet in the final stretch to freedom 
The fed said leave them to their deaths 
No mercy for the foreign breath 

But no barbs upon wire or small petty fine 
Would keep them from the free exercise 
Of a timeless love 
Unbound 

They were unbound 
(No state could stop them) 
Unbound 
(No man could judge them) 
Unbound 
No thing to do but join them and be unbound 

When commanded to offer up the names 
Of neighbor, kin, and countrymen 
They nodded and sent them on along 

But little did those nazis know 
Of the long and winding undertow 
Below the waves that sent them on their way 

Be it stamps or children feverishly 
Filled out and smuggled through the leaves 
It was a treasure of humanity 
Unbound 

They were unbound 
(No state could stop them) 
Unbound 
(No man could judge them) 
Unbound 
No thing to do but join them and be unbound 

May this little song and my paltry words 
Unhinge your heart and sheath your swords 
And be the death of border wars 
May your love be unbound


I Bet You Would've Called the Cops on Jesus

Heat, light, brilliant silence when we meet 
The finality and obscenities that leak out when you breathe 

Half truths fly like snow white weight over open fields we’ll never walk again 
An albatross dead but somehow flying home to warmer skies like 

Wind, let it begin, feel the breeze caress your deepest fears 
And stoke the coal that lets your worship never face up to spitting in the face of your love! 

Drain your doves of blood to fill the sacramental cups and 
Raise a toast to respectable villains, such gentlemen all
Cause these weeds they grow such stilted beings
Dirty your feet and discover the meaning of speaking truth to power and just 

Breathe deeply in your final hours, dogwhistle us your funeral dirge 

The Other denied will defy and decry and survive despite your evil words and all your 

Heat, light and brilliant silence 
Shine like iron, piercing wrists and feet

Wander (Instrumental)


Walk Sublime
