Tiger Warts 03:02
Cold woods, and bare feet I know your hands they buried my seed Late at night, your song brings the sunrise And dries the dew from my spine Tell me what I am to be To be crushed by your feet Or to grow from my weeds Good morning world, this is my first leaf And in the air I am free It’s the same as it has always been I’m a saint and this is my sin: Speak to my blood! Tell it to live

Think my seventeen-year-old pregnant birth-mom thought that she was carryin’ a prophet. As she held her stomach in her hands I know she had no thought to drop it. Cause when I was born, I was bathed in oil Surrounded by those trying to lift my spiritual and After 22 years I think that I am growing strong and I am balling hard. After 22 years I’ve learned that you don’t have to stiff arm when you’re balling hard. (They say that) every year I have passed my prime Oh and next year I’ll be a minister. But I’ll admit it to her, I’m not a menace to her and when I’m not near to her, I’m a bit shakier than I’d prefer... But I was humble then and I’ll be humbled now as I confess: "Furnace hasn’t shown you their best!"

Poison Ivy 03:26
Hello, West Coast, my dear It's been a while since I've been out here I know that I’m always gone But someday I will call you my own Tell me to push so I can push some more Tell me to push so I can endure Tell me to push until my hands grow sore, then I’ll push some more Hello west coast my dear I've been longing for a breath out here Winter calls me back home and I feel like I am falling out West Coast I'm here I think it's time we cleared the air I know my mind is gone, but I think I can find my way back Tell me to push so I can push some more Tell me to push so I can endure Tell me to push until my hands grow sore, then I’ll push some more I'm sore, I'm sore, I'm sorry love

Little Bird 04:26
Daylight, come sometime It’s a fight and I’ve been kicking most of my life It’s a fire and I’ve been burning all of my life Little bird you don’t know your worth Every song I sing, in the morning you’d return to me Every time I flee, in the mourning… Its a fight, a war cry Cause I have seen so many things and still I can't believe This is more than just a dream Cause I have seen so many things and still I can't believe There is more than eyes can see Does the father pursue the son? Am I your only one? Cause I have seen so many things and still I can't believe This is more than just a dream Cause, in the end, we’re the same In the end, we’re unchained In the end, we’re all saints

Decisions, decisions like you are heroin Decisions, decisions while you’re balancing on a rope and you’re gonna fall Decisions, decisions while you’re walking down your road Decisions, decisions like heroin But I ain’t got none Fight me, fight me like we’re children on the playground Confide in me, confide in me like I’m your savior But I can't save you now Find me, find me like we’re playing hide and seek Confide in me, confide in me like I’m your savior And I will save you now Heroine, you are my darling Heroine, you are my darling Heroin, you are my darling, but you've never done nothing good for me

I know that you haven’t slept in days So like a lover you go catch her face And when you fear that you have worked all your days Sing a chorus to take her to bay Do you have the time to come meet me I know you’re slammed but I wonder what do you mean It's been just over sixteen weeks -- you’re consuming me Do I consume you Oh I never stopped dreaming like you said But when I look we don't hold the offices But what do I know of love’s austere and loneliness Not much when I stop to catch my breath Do you have the time to come meet me I know you're slammed but you’re all that I can think It’s been just over sixteen weeks -- you’re consuming me Do I consume you?

Sacred Sin 05:12
Get off the bed Face on the floor Bloodthirst, you seep through hours A bloodthirst, but it's ours Adolescence, self-portrait, sacred sin While my body breaks and bends: a sacred sin Until our bodies bend and mend, a sacred sin You didn’t pick up the phone The message I left on your ringtone it goes as so “Thaw me from the inside out, this cold grows deeper than the greatest doubt, no doubt!” Adolescence, self-portrait, sacred sin While my body breaks and bends: a sacred sin Until our bodies bend and mend, a sacred sin Adolescence, self-portrait, sacred sin

All of my friends are painted words from crystalline skulls Kept up in your lockbox All of my friends have gone away until they stay Or will they fade? I hope they stay, I know they’ll stay if you say All of my secrets are like seasons they move from day-to-day Until they fade or until the fable comes and brings them my way All of my secrets like seasons, there’s a leaf hanging on the tree And it seems that it will be just you and me All of my friends bark and beg and then they pray for me to see the light But I've seen brighter days Cause all of my secrets, have their reasons, like this hand around my throat And no one can hear me scream to let me go but let me go, let me go Cause all of my secrets, have their reasons, like a leaf hanging on a tree And it seems that it’ll be just you and me, but don't let go It's you and me Seasons come, seasons come, go My hands, they move and shake until they break but then you take away Morning prayer rise, just come and fill my life make me right Take your time, just make me right

Garden 04:46
Grow a garden on the roof of your parent's houses Set sail for the king of hearts that you’ve always wanted Search for a cave so you may live to make music Build with your hands ‘til you understand the weight of them Like I do, oh I do. Do you? Glory in abundance There’s food for my kin to love the oppressed Glory in abundance There is food for my kin to love the oppressed Glory! Glory! Glory! Glory!
