Track Name: Reverence
With the reverence reserved for the dead and the dying
Make me a mess of holes

Love is the things that we do in its name

Beneath the celestial machinery
Peaceful we do dream
We are the coal that does feed them
We are sparks and steam

Love is the things that we do in its name
Track Name: Clockwork
Shattered knuckles slack jaw
Limbs swollen flesh raw
Hungry animal hunger no more
Michael leave us here

And I will draw you out
No radiant attendant
No host resplendent no

When the earth below you does shift
When the hours they do lapse
What good your restless clockwork
What good your maps

We do not come for forgiveness
we come to destroy
Track Name: Fist
See the bodies bend
In ways they should not bend
See them as though through a veil
See the bodies bend
In ways they should not bend
Shimmering and pale

After all it’s strange to miss
Your demon tongue your flying fist
Track Name: Amber
The world it is so bright
Bathed in amber light
Open your throat and sing
The names of things

The failure of flesh
The transience of blood
As below
So above
we rise up from dust
subside into nothing
Still there is love

Oh somewhere beneath
There is a nothingness baring its teeth
To swallow the things that you made
All in cascade

Wax and wane
Rise and subside
All things are the same
All things do divide
we rise up from dust
subside into nothing
Still there is love
Track Name: Leviathan
Walk til you reach the sea
She echoes in every empty part of me
Our love some great structure that towered above her
Let it fall let the prisoners free

And the fragments do fall where Leviathan lies
And he wakes and he rises and upwards does fly
Like some slow disaster that flows ever faster
The reckoning of you and I
Track Name: Oh Where You Go
Oh where you go
To lay yourself low
Where sound barely travels
Where everything goes slow

Oh collapsing sky
Evaporating sea

When you return
Swollen with things you have learned
Rank with desire and sick with spring
King of a kingdom where you are the only thing

Oh collapsing sky
Evaporating sea
Track Name: Elegant Elsewhere
Radiant wrapped in some elegant elsewhere
Like you were never ever there
Buried by distance held down by horizons
When you do not look at us we disappear

Some muscle memory rises up in you
Oh there are voices that call from above
And it is something like terrible hunger
And it is something like perfect love
Track Name: Thin Air
And up here
Thin air, thin air
To be faced with great nothing
To find we don’t care
Taste ash on the wind
That blows through your hair
Oh how I love you now

Oh what did you do
And oh what happened to you
Oh what did you do
And oh what happened to you

All that we can see
Shivering silver seething trees
Sky heavy sky low
There is nothing there is no glow
No horizon we can see
