about

We circled each other like boxers in a ring,
like dancers on the horsehair,
like cats about to claw.
The circles were coins in the palms of our hands,
two-sided and far-roaming,
our fare for the ferryman,
admission to the waltz,
tickets to somewhere else.
A balm for our hearts, the music soothed
the burning red thing, loosened the laces on the gloves
and let them fall to the canvas.

Track Name: Cyclops
Do you see me? I’m a cyclops
I only got eyes for one: it’s you
I'm a cyclops for you
Track Name: All the Time in the World
You’ve got two hands, they have ten fingers
and almost all of their nails
(and) all the time in the world

I’ve got my man, I’ve got intentions
and almost all of them bare
(and) all the time in the world

Under cover of stars, in the darkness,
none of them will stare
(and) all the time in the world

With your two hands, and your ten fingers
and almost all of your nails,
(and) all the time in the world

Hey you, you there
please don’t be scared
we’re almost there

Desire roused me last night
swelling like a midnight tide
foaming around my body
lapping me awake
Track Name: Buried in the Sand
Buried in the sand, take it all in hand
claw your way back to the top

and I followed all your plans
so you could claw your way back to the top

and I’m doing all I can, not the weaker man (to the top)
and I’ll stay if I think I can (to the top)

Exhume your remains
and lose the undertaker
get you into a shower
I’ll brush your hair

Buried in the sand; I’ll stay if I think I can
Track Name: No Better Than You
If I ever let it split me in two
I’d still be half the man as you

And if you say you’ve heard it
one thousand times before
Well, I’ll tell you babe
I heard it a thousand more
I’m no better than you

If you say you’re leaving, and walking out the door
well I have opened and shut many of those before

Ya if you feel you’re dying for something brand new
Well I’ve already seen the world
and it killed me too

I’m no better than you

This world can be demeaning
nothing happens like we’re told
well know this my dear
you are never alone
Track Name: Repetition
It’s been darkness, it’s been blight
It’s been courage, it’s been spite
It’s been everything I lack, it’s been milk bones and fat

Oh, repetition now

It had a price and it’s been sold
it’s been fur, silk and gold,
it’s been stalked and it’s been trapped
taken everything I had

Oh, repetition now

It’s been lost and it’s been found
It’s been underneath the crown
it’s been true, the truth is sad, it’s been milk bones and fat

Oh, repetition now

It’s been a lock and attendant key
It’s been kept inside me
It was born from the blue,
and it looks a little bit like you

Oh, repetition now
