Track Name: a king
you're a king of a circular aching, you're a king you're a king you're a king

wax and wane, overturn all my cakes

may not a tide not turn your back to me so soon
may not a tide turn your back to me so soon

your sweet breath can't be my deathbed
I won't wait but I won't go away
my heart is
Track Name: death and ivory
the thing you fear the most
you build it a throne
and the thing you love the most
it's got a back door it's got a black door
the thing you fear the most

you say that I love death
I say you love ivory
when your moon is full of craters
time to be your own goddamn creator
you think you are big and scary
I know your mama does your laundry

Ain't no thing ever enough.

Preen your prime
Predict your crime
I'll steal your home if you steal mine

You say that I love death
I say you love Ivory

Ain't nothing ever enough
Track Name: red-ruby-blooded
Rubies run through you
your pale legs like lightning strike
and no one has such far a range
as you do when you're young and strange

there be in a man a crystalline intangible
cherished to me more and more

moon's always full where you are
strong grow the tender, the frail and bizarre
and though we know wild can't last
it sure can go so far so fast.
Track Name: for william
William you ruined me, none of these little boys will do
I am a fool I am a fool I am a fool I am a fool I am a fool

My eyes are ringed in fangs, it makes it hard to sleep
My hands are so busy cleanin' up the blood I weep
Your words are set in stone, it must be hard to speak
My eyes are ringed in fangs it is hard to be awake...

William you ruined me
I do, undone, did me in
Track Name: hard up
I'm still cold from ignore
Stand like a bone
Stuck in the floor.

She peeled me a pearl
Showed it to me
With her young teeth.

Love my baby but I hate
this place.

Hard luck, hard knock, hard up,

You know me
I leave, leave.

Hard luck, hard knock, hard-on,

I know
You go
Where I
Go.
Where I
Go.

I'm a new man, mama
Ain't a far cry but it's too far
To weep for.

I'll blind you with the shine of my shoes
when I'm in the nude.
I'll blind you with the shine of my shoes
when I'm in the New.
Track Name: catalyst
Your foreign money's no good round here
Face on the coin's no friend of mine
I'm an old soul stuck in a young fuck
Take your luck and disappear
Take your luck and disappear

Don't fall in love with a Southern Man
'cause it's a long way down
Don't fall in love with a Southern Man
'cause it's a long way down

Babe says I need a catalyst
Gives it to me with a fist
All those ties you do enlist
Can't imprison a real fine mist.

Don't fall in love
with a Southern Man.
