Track Name: Blisters
Is it obvious what I've been dreaming of?
Sleep with the sunrise, wake in the dark.
Cut gums from sucking broken glass, grazed knees from praying.

You were where I saw myself.

Is there anything left for me to love?
Sleep through the daytime, dream of the past.
Torn heart and blisters in the gut - still find me praying.

You were where I saw myself.
Track Name: Spine
The light outside is white tonight.
White, I lay on my side tonight:
Seeing patterns in the wall - remind me of you -
They don't look like you at all.

I'm scared, I'm freezing to death,
I'm watching my chest rise and fall; a silhouette on the wall.
Scared, freezing to death,
I'm watching my chest rise and fall.

That fright I felt was poisonous, tight,
Right through my ribcage, and into my spine.
Chest - pinned to the wall - paralysed, still,
Watching your body contort.

Scared, I'm freezing to death,
I'm watching your breasts rise and fall; a silhouette on the wall.
Scared, freezing to death,
I'm holding my breath - I'm holding my breath 'till it blurs.
Track Name: Portrait
While my skin crawls; with beetles and with bees -
Her profile looks down, over me.
Look down, over me.
Track Name: Stomach
If I should die alone, at least I know that I once knew what love was.
It was sad to see it go, but half the world have never even felt it.
What if we never met? Would I even know that love hurts in the stomach?
What if we never met? Would I crave to taste as much as I have tasted?
Track Name: Soreness
Someday, it'll be something we can pursue.
Someday, it'll be easier to:
Walk beside you, sleep beside you -
Without bruising spreading, without swelling.
Now with jaw-lock; I wake up 'cos it's cold.
Now with soreness; I wake up, and you know
To tell me you are leaving - and I gulp.
You tell me you are leaving; now I'm grieving, I'm lonely, I ache in my bones.
How am I to know where you're going?
How am I to know where?
You've gone wrong again.

Please have the decency to tell me why you're leaving me here alone.
