Track Name: Word Is Noise
Little hands
In their place
Left no light
On at all
Teeth go in
Stars come out
Shining as we tangle

Scars like secret braille
Written just to tell
Our trouble in

Little heart
With just room
For speeding blood
Blue goes in
Red comes out
Spine, burr, thorn and tooth
The gauze the gaze goes through
Come when I buckle
Keep me

Wet under the trees
Hearts knotted in threes
Ghosts breezing between your ribs
And the load breaks the clavicle
All your bones were built to go
All your words are noises

It’s only light shining
Only eyes down on it
Only yours that flicker so
Signal stranded in the wire
Go inverted to your grave
