Track Name: Backwards Can
Can backwards understand
Pedals on our hands
Somewhere in between
Our hearts if we...

If we all see in threes
Where did my heart bend
Past the second end
Weighted in your speech

All below the point
Keep it keep it here
All below the point
Keep it keep it here

Can backwards understand
Pedals on our hands
Somewhere in between
Our hearts if we bring

Ornamental thoughts
Out of where we sing
Into soundless sleep
Actors never

Land with both feet
On the wall
I heard you fall
Without anything on your mind
Just tell me
Am I on your mind at all?

Before us was we
Harvesting the
Electric ones
That sit in me quietly

All below the point
Keep it...
All below the point
Keep it keep it here

Land with both feet
On the wall
I heard you fall
Without anything on your mind
Just tell me
Am I on your mind at all?

Can backwards understand
Pedals on our hands
Somewhere in between
Our hearts if we
Track Name: Karenin
I've played the part of you playing me
Into soundless sleep
Where we both thought that love
Was just swimming with our feet

I've played the part of you playing me
Into soundless sleep
Where we both thought that love
Was just comfort, sweet relief

Held between your eyes
In a Bosch scene
With green quilts

I felt something still
Moving without will

A flower blooms and
Cures its movement to
Its own perfume

Ornamental thoughts
Came from when we
Saw two not three

And I love you still
Moving without will

A flower blooms and
Slowly dances to
A new perfume

A flower blooms and
Slowly dances to
A new perfume
Kept inside to
Grow around you

Where's the black box floating
Holding scripts with no page one
Dictionary conversations
Kept from us

I've played the part of you playing me
Into soundless sleep
Where we both thought that love
Was just swimming with our feet

I've played the part of you playing me
Into soundless sleep
Where we both thought that love
Was just comfort, sweet relief
Track Name: Slow Thoughts
I set you down in a room full of teeth
Painting words with pages of sheets

I stood on your tongue
Holding scripts with no page one
Dictionaries speaking without...

Leaving a space
That our slow thoughts could taste
Flipping pages that we could waste

I sat there in silence
Asking where the garden quit
Growing places just to listen

Your slow feelings speak
Poured into a mold
Dance like figurines
Kept from growing old

Your slow thoughts escape for comfort

Painting words with pages of sheets
I stood on your tongue
Asking where the garden quit
Growing places just to listen

Leaving a space
That our slow thoughts could taste

I sat there in silence
Asking where the garden quit
Growing places just to listen

Your slow feelings speak
Poured into a mold
Dance like figurines
Kept from growing old

Your slow thoughts escape for comfort
