Track Name: Save Yourself
Fed by a white gloved hand: dirty mouths and yellow teeth; words unsayable, unable to speak.

So say them yourself.

Quiet as the color of a room, quiet as a room of sighs, quiet as their shadows in the dark, quiet down the color of their eye.

Walls don't speak to an empty house and we can't find the light. We're leaving incompletely for mass or suicide.

So just go save yourself.
Track Name: Bloodletter
Run down that epileptic profiteering seer. Run her under delta. A purring script for blood-let lips, blood letter by a prophet's crypt so let blood flow to my name.

Time and space shift to eclipse then signs align up from her hips of numinous rapture. Brushing fire from her hair and spitting sand into the air she let blood flow to my name.

Faults folding into themselves and those alive are all unwell, filling full on tombs. Belly aching sick with fear that passed the tongue of the seer, she let blood flow to my name.
