Track Name: Prospero
Lights are overhead
sinking into me
burning, scalding
what was it we were looking for
always glowing with anticipation for the next epiphany
the waters like ice
battering, clawing
I cling on to it
Mighty Vessels
Track Name: Sirens
Fine Fog filling my eyes
reaching through slowly
why are you looking again
over the top
of nothing else
Track Name: Strange Conifers
My sides are broken
I've tired my eyes
two birds on my cup
telling me lies
but I know

Find your way off
cling to my skin

Paint your colours on my skin
fall form the pines your buried in
Track Name: Hot Sands
The vines grew
overtop of my head
the ground moved
underneath my head
theres no people here
the people are all dead

How did I get here
on bourbon and leaf
how did I get here
and how do I leave

The sky wove
overtop of my head
the mountain stood
it did not speak a word
theres no life here
the animals are dead

How did I get here
on bourbon and leaf
how did I get here
and how do I leave

And I never lived
Track Name: The Decomposition of Earl
Star in my sky
must I accept such cruel fate
alone with my crown of precious stone
here Its worth nothing at all

Darkness fills my eyes
the waves swallow me whole
alone with my heart of precious stone
here I've learned nothing at all

I think that it's over now
Now I can see

I am a troglodyte disguised as a tiny sailor
I am an anchor disguised as a man
I am the sandcastle built by the dreams of a little boy
I have no appendages and am inhabited by microfauna
I am left behind
so let the waves crush me and ware me to my bones
spilling me across this endless expanse of detritus and detritivores
consuming and disposing endlessly
over and over
