Track Name: Deterritory
spending time in measured ways to measure life
see time erode so easily

find seconds of activity and go back to overwhelmed
let’s build a new community

if fire taught a lesson to the gods
if pain approaches empathy

if saints aren’t given voice to teach of burns
we’re led to blood periphery

it’s not enough to hate the world we live within
it’s not enough to hate the world we live within
it’s not enough to hate the world we live within
it’s not enough to hate the world we live within
Track Name: Fourth Zone of Gaits
a broken arm lies broken
lying down you feel the pulse
and you are bleeding greener grasses
than the open ocean
running through your head it’s like an ocean
with the amplitude
the frequency of momentary openness
the brokenhearted open ocean running through
the back of moments emptied of
the openhearted thinking through the talking i have
given every moment this is
openness to broken arms
the bleeding of
a greener sort of moment thinking through it
all the time
this is the moment i am thinking
all the time
Track Name: Bell
of kneeling in
the taller grasses
breathing slow
gives to breathing faster

systems lean
towards being with an ending world
i’m leaving room
for a beauty unfurled

the wind and sound
of feet along concrete
how a feeling is a song
so incomplete

when waves collapse
they create light you see
in brightness i’ll believe
in everything

but thought with care and grace you stay
yourself with love and wind and pain
to bloom and wilt confuse and fade
to grow like this
the grass is dreaming through the rain
Track Name: For Nana
move like it’s a meadow
calm against a breeze
or do you suffer through your heavy breath?
is it pain without relief?

when you leave the room i wonder how
a heart exists beyond the beat
when you leave the room i wonder how
a heart exists beyond the beat

i won’t see you anymore
i won’t see you anymore

i won’t see you anymore
life’s a fit of moving on
blood and breath will leave you sore
salt and water drift toward
rest a reverence is born
i will dream you other forms
live your love without reward
hold you empty in my arms

i won’t see you anymore
i won’t see you anymore
i won’t see you anymore
i won’t see you anymore
i won’t see you anymore
i won’t see you anymore
Track Name: Gulf
walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i can see the gulf
mountains at my feet in the slow erode

you’re a century moving much too quickly
i’m moving quickly too you’re moving quickly too
you’re a century moving much too quickly
i’m moving quickly too i’m moving quickly too

walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i’m walking down

i was thinking
i was thinking
i’d like to hear
a deep pulse
i would like
to hear a
deep pulse

i was thinking
i’d like to hear
a deep pulse
in the warm
dusty air
in the warm
dusty air

i was
against my palm
i was with my palm
in the air

i was thinking
in the green
in the green
light of the street

i saw in light
in the
in the
green
of the light
i was in my palm
was in my palm

i was thinking
i’d like to hear
your deep pulse

in these awful moments
there’s a brightness everywhere
even in these awful moments
i feel it against my palm
i can feel your heart
just underneath the way home

walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i can see the gulf
walking down the street i’m walking down
