Track Name: in a bone birdcage
a storm raged on the sun
all summer long
dark islands formed
doctors made glowing maps
of your body
but no one could find the root
of your disease

you sit for a while in the dark
cutlery shines on a long oak table
what is a ripe life worth?
snakes writhe over stones
a red bird sings in a bone birdcage

who lives here now?
a sob buried in a hard metallic laugh
old terror fossilized in a withering stare
you sit in the dark
and dream of shedding your skin
Track Name: a long swim to another life
my clothes are hanging in the sun
my skin is hanging in the stars
my eyes are stones in the river
it's a long swim to another life
nothing here is mine
Track Name: fathomless
all these battles over whose grief is real
who will we turn to stone
who is fathomless with feeling
