Track Name: Moonshine/Mair Attresses
the fire's hot and bright, the kindling pops and the moonshines. we warm our blood with appetites for everclear and moonshine. before i ever laid hands on her, i saw my world in black and red. it's quiet now on our air mattresses. we grow our shadows miles high, throwing monsters up through the tree line, and the smoke climbs. squint your eyes when the wind blows north and the embers blow. the coals burn and you're breathing slows. we're at the edge of the earth somehow, sleeping safely from our ledge, peering down from our air mattresses.
Track Name: Merlot
i see, in the absence of gravity, what tethered us to reality has split what string is left and is scattering. i breathe between the air the weeds. a tune that makes me believe i can do anything
Track Name: My Body Turns to Vapor
lover, when you sleep i hear you grinding down your teeth to the sand that salts the streets, releasing all anxiety. darling, when you speak sweetly, you're shuffling you feet like a child in a high seat, revealing all uncertainty. we could never have known what we are without the scars. my body turns to vapor.
Track Name: Albatross Two One
i wanna turn this day machine off, but i don't wanna carry no albatross. i wanna exhale fire. i wanna get you high. if you can't take it all, it won't make you whole. it won't take you home, it won't turn to gold.
