Blixen 04:30
I watched you fall asleep Ran fingers though you hair Down your shoulders Onto your neck Your eyes darting beneath their lids Seeing wonderful and beautiful things I stayed awake For almost a hour Just to see you sleep Just to see if I could see you dream You would purr when I touched you West Side Industrial Brass headboard adornments One lamp, one light Drugstore champagne Light came in through the windows Stale smoke in the room Security camera feeds live on TV Always our way We slid down the hallway Marched in black 5 chains 4 boots 1 prayer
2.
Horse Head 02:51
Okay So they symbols stand Stamped forever Into my skin The black belt The horse head The black denim And black t-shirt Black boots Waxed laces Gas tanks Coke Zero Breaks Warm nights When I had to go You had my heart And you still do Night after night I broke you We found the right place We made the time God in heaven. Can you hear her cry? I swear to you I can I remember my words I don't know who I am without my work Beautiful baby Between my thighs Smiling Being the best I've ever seen
3.
Guess 04:10
Anywhere Any place beside me I wanted to take you You wanted to ride We went places I remember nights Where we said to each other How we wanted to die In that moment On uncomfortable seats We laugh and we drank You'd kiss and I'd wink We were our own gods Made perfect and clean for each other Follow me anywhere You wore the gold and my heart I called your name You heard my song It was to pretty to resist You sang along We made up every verse in love You prayed over every candle burned

The sun is high up in the sky and I'm in my car drifting down into the abattoir Do you see what I see dear? The air grows heavy I listen to your breath Entwined together in this culture of death Do you see what I see dear? Slide on over here and give me a squeeze To avert this unholy evolutionary trajectory Can you hear what I hear babe? Does it make you feel afraid? Everything's dissolving babe, according to plan the sky's on fire the dead are heaped across the land I went to bed last night and my moral code got jammed I woke up this morning with an iPhone in my hand I kissed you once I kissed you again My heart it tumbled like the stock exchange Do you feel what I feel dear? Mass extinction, darling, hypocrisy These things are not good for me Do you see what I see dear? the line that God throws down to you and me makes a pleasing geometry Shall we leave this place now dear? Is there some way out of here? I wake with the sparrows and I hurry off to work The need for validation babe, gone completely berserk I wanted to be your Superman but I turned out such a jerk I wanted to be your daddy, babe, but I turned out such a jerk. I've got the abattoir blues, right down to my boots.
