Track Name: bellbird
felt the blue of death in a native vale
a bellbird rang

tried to read myself to safety
in another life

a freezing wind cried up the river

33
afraid
Track Name: identical
saw at least two of them
identical
forever unable to touch
describing the same high winds
the great wheels of stars
Track Name: green dream
this one afternoon
back from the beach
my arms full of sandy firewood
and twenty miles of rainbow
arced the lawn
I dropped it all
I stood in a green dream
like a family of one
Track Name: full soup head
it was a lot at the end of an auction
cased in fine black leather
an ancient ticket on the side of the box gave instructions
how to boil the head and drink the soup
and as soon as you read them you did

some sleight of hand with vision
and only sad beauty was beauty

and a house you wish you'd never imagined
which at sunset would wake up and go mad
fluttering black silk shreds
in unimaginable winds
Track Name: from the empire
it's a long way
from the empire (leaves lie)
just to stuart st
empty mailbox
I hate this place

such a long life
you're - not even here
wanting close (always leaves)
walking the town
talking inside
all night
Track Name: one method
method one is a solo heaven
up the river in a boat like a single bed
arms making figure 8's winding through silver living lights
in the the pressure-song of a gentle wind
like a stroke
like a beat
to pull you through the hours
and the points on the riverbank
slip away
like the summer you were dreaming you werereaching out
you were reaching out for a happy ending
you were reaching out for a future lover
reaching out
on another river
Track Name: forest flower
forest flower
so funereal

down in Gore
the pipes took him up
into a tin sky

she stroked the wood
touched the world goodbye
like skin
soft earth or forest flower
