you find what you never wish you would burst a vein dirty hook a knife with which you just nick yourself turn the word i hope that its going to be okay allright it's going to be fine allright it's going to be okay allright the fear slips in underneath the hood you lost your hope in that road throw away the remnants of the chain so find another one

you know it's all fine when you know the verdict and you know it's all on the side where you hide waiting under pine canopies i don't want to be here anymore these last ten days have been so misleading timber was cried but no tree fell waiting under pine canopies to get your fill keep out this wild sun today if you were the warm walls of a home if you had breathed out goodbye i would be right before you to meet your eyes again under pine canopies to get your fill you know its all

Cruelty 04:18
fire away at this bruised little spider soul and you look on as the gutter water washed him away down down to the ground look at these tired these tired eyes and know that they'll never betray he tried to build his nest strong venus spinning for his eyes you look on as the gutter water washed him away down down to the ground look at these tired these tired eyes and know that they'll never betray and look at these hungry these hungry hands they know that you'll fire away fire away fire away i don't care anymore fire away fire away this house is not a home fire away fire away twenty three holes filled with nothing blood nothing

Pretoria 03:12
Pretoria I'm simplicity the lines upon the road the thunder beats with greatest care bows around the trees the buzzing nights the swelling melodies now she swirls the air sending flowers to greet me there Pretoria I'm complexity the quiet moments of our urgency with greatest care bows around the trees the buzzing nights the swelling melodies now she swirls the air sending flowers to greet me there now the hidden streets guide me to your open door

The Gun 03:23
now in the deepest season i will be there with you in this life then under doubt's foul seizures then betrayed by your muse oldest bones in the flesh are intertwined questions grow there in our eastern coastline but the gun it reminds me of your life pull the trigger and explode fire fire all this must burn fear is the only reason i can't be there with you in this life shine like you really want to and let go of the strife in this room bitter heart sheltered in the kindest frame questions start in the town that holds my name but the gun it reminds me of your life pull the trigger and explode fire fire all this must burn
6.
you waving as i go is the last thing my memory serves me but i know there are easier things to wake up to plumbago blossoms in my strangest dreams you still wave even though i left ten years ago you were the only one you were the only one turn to contact turn to rescue a fragmented life the city called me out out to the dirty streets the gutters shy and proud you were the only one who they never allowed into the den of lust and guilt peppered with doubt spilling on the gravel from the ground it could not hold you still it could not hold you still turn to contact turn to rescue a fragmented life I'm tired of myself I peel away this weathered mask I hold to this sense of sin the city called me out out to the glass and steel monoliths i took a vow i was as a worm to moth as a needle is pulled through cloth as the words were born inside my mouth inside my mouth spilling on the gravel from the ground we are the only ones
7.
Fascinator 03:15
no giant ego i love your lashes the dust from the landscape is a red mist turning some lunch from a petrol station i hope that we never have to stop
8.
Vert 03:01
all we ever want all imperative to push the deserts back to the sea living evidence of another mouth of the teeth around she with green invades then leaves listen here you were wrong i thought you had left long before love your mom love your dad silver spoons were in your school friends drawers she with green invades then leaves on the opposite town's end pleading all they took from us all those accidents a slip of sole beneath the heel in this suburb city country trying to live without words
9.
a snatch of conversation a breath of fresh air this is potassium iodide everything is in vibration oh the world is so small leave the light on how do we build our armour our offices underground our fire-drill parties everything is in vibration oh the world is so small please leave the light on nothing will last forever that's what you say i know our love will stand everything is in vibration
10.
Tut Tut 01:43
broken window your cellphone watch the matrix break some bones turn a page just for once a slap of takkies on wet ground throw your five rand in the pond take it away give it back hey what's that sombre stare to drown the world i wasn't speaking in there just mumbled words and i felt so all alone in a crowded room i tried to keep my control my control lick my lips with cobra spit long grass trembles underneath oh despair oh despair koki marks over my face where you all tried to place what a night what a night
