Track Name: for free
D
I tried
I fall in the rain

this for free
for free

a fall I like
I fought in the rain
tonight I only want what's real
I am up on my hind legs
work is just imaginary love

falling for free

tonight I say I want what's real
Track Name: high and fired
dear one
lost year old stuff
I swear I will give it up

pull out memories like teeth

breathe hero stay light
high and fired
don't pick up another
all lonely underneath
Track Name: rivulets
afraid of everything
saw stone rivulets
pour down centuries
Track Name: thoar
i'm sick with fate
I know you'll cry
but say it's right
this holy weight
it's only life

hold onto that grace
it's the only true thing in the place

you know my crime
can you conspire
to live goodbye
walk your own wire

you can hold onto that grace
it's the only true thing in the place
Track Name: song to the third
you're not all gone
I love you long
I'll sing you home
Track Name: ember
drunk in that hollow stone
we made it a throne
the mezcal sea came in around
like a fire the day went out
I felt how we'll go

I felt how we go
each so alone
heart stretched out till it had strings
and your eyes were plucking them
in one last ember of sun
I saw myself die
like that

going home
Track Name: surrender
how did she write me in
the dream where I met her?
If in real life she appeared
would I sign that i forget her?

with her pale blue
surrender
sun gold tickle
under
infectious with joy
infectious
Track Name: this hard
how
how are
how are you?

drunk in bed
just can't rise
without you

your name
written everywhere at night
burns
where we used to send our minds
raced each other, lost each other
made another life
where we used to send our minds

how come
this town's dead
and how come
you've gone
to that changing colour star
wished out that deep that sad that far
once together raced each other
now another life
where I know I'll send my mind
Track Name: vinyl curtain
smaller and smaller
check the water tomorrow
living on the country
days gone by
strange person
tiny circles
sense of---
he was always joined to her in mourning
drink dreams
getting birthday
overall 28 years
overawed with her
star funereal
what's the use with vinyl curtains
Track Name: raining here
drove north
new life, new love
it failed

it's raining here
tonight
Track Name: flickering birds
saw myself home
that blue looked right through
all the strings in me droned

flickering birds
crossed the sky
I rode that sight
all the way home

the sea was drumming me on
the sea was drumming me on
Track Name: frostfish
first thing after waking up
running along the beach at Aramoana
without looking ahead
eyes turned right to the sea horizon
taking it all in as silver light
seeing a big life
saying goodbye
Track Name: hospice
we talked down the fine wires
rows of forlorn poles
on sad highways south

you were working
on dying

speaking from so deep
I was not allowed to hear
what I said
lose that thread
open your hands
just let it drift
forget it
get it
Track Name: favourite blue
again I'm called to walking late
or crawling back to break
refocus wild electric eye
open shut mine in the sky
yoked at the heart my favourite blue
since I lay in it with you
