The Bending
Branch

We are the bending branch
Alive with a pulsing love
A pulsing love with a life of its own
But its a strength that goes unnamed
A strength that goes unheard
Until the branch is scathed
(Its always about to break)
But we only bend
It’s hard to comprehend
The force that keeps us hanging on

In our endless cycle of rebirth
Orbiting lovers buried under the earth
Your hands reach inside me
Hold my neck from behind my chest
Through my skin
From within
Can’t tell where one ends
And the other begins

You hold me close
Like you’ll never let go
But you never let me know
The depth of your love
Love
You say you don’t know what it is
I wish you’d pay attention when I show you
For we are the warmth at the bottom of the sea
But you never swim beside me

In our endless cycle of rebirth
Orbiting lovers buried under the earth
Your hands reach inside me
Hold my neck from behind my chest
Through my skin
From within
Can’t tell where one ends
And the other begins

And now our branch is in the sea
I hold my breath to sink in
To reach the heat
I try not to think about it
I’m free and warm
But alone
But in love
But alone
But I’m the one
I almost lost myself
Drowning in your sea
But I am alive
With a pulsing love
Having to break my own heart
To break that branch
And breaking the fucking cycle

Canon Balls
On Crystal
Bodies Of
Desire

Claws and shackles
Burning scars
Who is responsible
Who will bear the weight
Carry the chains I cannot break
I cannot break the heart
I cannot tear the fine silk
I cannot speak of you
For I don’t even understand
I don’t know how to let go
But I know my ground
I’ve made the choice
And flames explode from my red lips
As I whisper canon balls
That fall on delicate
Crystal bodies of desire

Make Love
To None
Make Love
To You

Beside myself
Torn in two
Make love to none
Make love to you
The trees they know
Just what to do
No map to follow
No star of blue
But me I shake
I rattle through and through
Relief in your face
I feel renewed
After time fades
We forget the rain
The sheets are clean
No more stains
No more pillows
Spotted with drops from eyes
Cause no on slept there
No one cried
I took the adventure
Nothing else to do
If I remained
Nothing would have changed
Face to face again
I feel fresh
But what if my return
Brings my regret
And a return to slow
Heavy dragging feet
I know the pace
Of my heartbeat
It will not survive
The changing tides
My heart needs life
With conscious choice
Of all my mistakes
And I know more are to come
I just want peace
I just want to be home
But home is undefined
Blind in the sun
Make love to none
Make love to you

Bless The
Obsessed

Crawled into the cage
It was nothing new
Door remained unlocked
But escape escaped you
The softness of the past
Your voice remains untouched
The presence in our hearts
The future in a rush
If you want to reach me
Oh you can always find me
Wandering the shore
If you want to reach me
Oh you can always find me
Beneath the deepest ocean floor
I am still yours
It all goes so fast
Do you still believe in faith
My, you leave me weak
Though I know my strength
Bless the obsessed
The other side unseen
A world a wonder a mess
What is left of me
If you want to reach me
Oh you can always find me
Wandering the shore
If you want to reach me
Oh you can always find me
Beneath the deepest ocean floor
I am still yours
My eyes repent
My eyes rejoice
Forever torn
In the beauty of choice
Where you are
Stepping stones
Where you dream
Milestones
Where the drills
Came for the fortune
Where the land
Would not be broken
Beneath the deepest ocean floor
I found what was ours
Beneath the deepest ocean floor
I found what was ours
Bless the obsessed
Lust for lives you loved
No, live for love you find
Not for love you lost

Breaking
The Statue

I have always known
I just didn’t understand
The inner conflictions
Arresting our hands
Gravitating close enough
Expansive distance between
I couldn’t give you more
But I meant everything
When the day comes
You find your heart
Wants something more
Than a piece and a part
Your life will change
Like a statue set free
To walk among us
To create destiny
We didn’t break any rules
We didn’t make mistakes
Making beauty in loving
Making loving for days

Yes Yes
Boom Boom

Who do I tell
I don’t feel well
I feel better together
Who do I say
Night into day
He won’t be alone
One day minds will change
Wolves will stay
And gray will fade
Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the room
Stops spinning
Stops spinning
Who do I trust
Keep this for us
Only shadows see we’re free
Who am I now
And does this count
Cause I counted more
Oh no
What would we leave here for
This is an experience, see
Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the…
Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the room
Go slow motion
I’m not ready yet
That’s when it all happens
I make no defense
The room was pounding on my chest
The air was thick with ashes
The storm was shrieking on the glass damn relentless
Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the…
Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the room
Stops spinning
