you are part of a world unfolding you may only have this lifetime no one needs your needless suffering don't forget to kill the cop inside every room of my heart in the desert you remember your name you are jacob and catherine and paul you are julian and bugnutt and pete there are others that you've yet to grow into every room of my heart in the desert you remember there is nothing left to uncover in the desert you surrender you always have remembered I am made of memory made of every moment making me and if I had stayed at home in indiana I hope I'd be just as at odds with the world without a prayer of piecing it together as far as I can see I hope I would have been just as uneasy and absurd every room of my heart

dreamtown 04:02
baby, all aboard to dreamtown baby, all aboard to dreamtown down, down down may you wash your worries in the wine-dark sea in dreamtown transmute body for fun, for free in dreamtown may you be held in the limbs of an elm in dreamtown child, we die a little every day and in the twilight of dreamtown the dearest of the dead await baby, all aboard to dreamtown baby, all aboard to dreamtown down, down down chemicals have no consequence babies need no deliverance everything is changed out the windows of the train as you slip beneath the surface the living and the dead will have their severance in dreamtown may the butt of the gun coming down and down and down upon your head become the kisses of a friend buffering your body in its bed may the image of the building coming down and down and down in awful swoon give to memories of when you were a birdling, flirting in the moon child, we die a little every night maybe why it feels so finally familiar when we tunnel toward the light

fenner 03:54
why do you always find your songs in hell? you could just go to fenner you could just go to fenner anyways, does the music bring you out or just keep bringing you back? you could just go to fenner you could just go to fenner I AM A SEETHING THING I DO NOT KNOW MY NAME I DO NOT KNOW MY OWN NAME I unlearn and untame you could just go to fenner you could just go to fenner stop pretending this is normal your life is looped inside a cycle nothing counts without survival nothing counts without survival eat the profiteers of body reparate and bury capital nothing topples but a carnival nothing grows without survival nothing dies without a reason nothing lives without communion nothing burns without arson nothing gives, nothing recuses stop pretending this is normal your life is looped inside a cycle nothing counts without survival nothing counts without survival you could just go to fenner you could just go to fenner

damn, it was a hell of a time I never seen a heart so hurting or knew the way the swell of the earth divides I never felt so umbilical damn, it was a hell of a time damn, it was a hell of a time I never knew a body so broken or the warm disease of memory or the violence of family you would die every day if you coulda you would die of a million minutia still, from out the crack of the concrete of this corpus something is alive something is alive and you said you love america but I know you burn for freedom and I dream a world much like our own but economy is measured in the love that we have known and industry eclipsed by the ways we have grown and trauma and its healing are the axle around which we turn and freedom is a fire in which amerika burns something is alive something is alive damn, it was a hell of a time and I know it's never over still I open up my beating heart to the morning light on the far wall and the summer wind at the window I never felt so umbilical have you ever felt umbilical?

sabotage 02:51
sabotage! summertime of sabotage! in the vein of the summer squash in the vine of the creeping plant at the heart of amerika summertime of sabotage! when we die, do our defenses die with us? what could be left for the universe to give us? (you came to me as a dear by the river you said, "it's not our fault" across the water I wallow in the glory of your cypher) but there are no words anymore it's the time for sabotage! summertime of sabotage! for the bodies of the lost for the beauty of the world for the captive and the cost for the brisket of the boss summertime of sabotage! in the vein of the summer squash in the vine of the creeping plant at the heart of amerika summertime of sabotage! summertime!

I want to come see you I want to tell you what I did I want to tell you what I did-- want to tell you why we grew apart at least on my end.

you can work with your body to modulate emotion and memory and you can alter the past with a twist in the strand of the story I have known love a number of times I've hit my stride a number of times I've altered the past a number of times world without end (a number of times) world without end got me swooning and crooning and crushing for a kiss I didn't want any part of this and now I can't but beat to the heart of this I am pete, I am artemis and I have known joy a number of times I have been wild a number of times I emerge from the vapor a number of times might as well cut a caper a number of times world without end (a number of times) world without end (a number of times) world without end (a number of times) I've loved you now a number of times

circle 02:19
could I forgive everything–even the dull incision? even if I remember everything with demonic precision– could I forgive everyone everything even me as I round the bend of my thirties debt is not delivering the deliverance that I need could I forgive everything? and we'll all go together in a circle, we'll inscribe all the names we have for one another will you go, will you go? and we'll all go together-- in a circle of fire all the names we have for one another will you go, will you go?

SPIRIT ARE YOU READY SPIRIT ARE YOU READY let's burn this fucker down let's burn this fucker down unholy animal unholy body that you be you were not set apart you are a part of the revelry and the spirit is old and the body bleak as bleak can be and they move like fire and we grow at the speed of trees SPIRIT ARE YOU READY SPIRIT ARE YOU READY let's burn this fucker down let's burn this fucker down you don’t have to remember you don’t have to abandon you don’t have to relinquish you don’t have to pretend every moment is bending in the shape of a question we are children of ruin we are children of ruin (I was danzig when I was twill I was danzig when I was ill cancel myself right out the womb is it strange to cancel swoon I was danzig when I was aide is it strange to desolate cancel myself into the tomb is it strange to cancel swoon)
