1.
“hello, goodbye” (sanden) tried to do your best, but you could not a quiet stroke in a drowning pool a tangled knot we get one shot it sounds so hollow, it’s nothing new as we follow veins of pain in you we saw, the pain flows hot here’s your record under the needle’s cut hey, we’re not getting high as we watch you wave goodbye hello, goodbye waylaid on a bullet train why’d the shining, flying sun go away? it’s your sobriquet we felt so bright in our newfound light in our transparent, standard lives not like, unlike yours here’s your heart’s chord pounding out the darkest sounds hey, we’re not getting high as we watch you wave goodbye down, did we let you down? drowning out a paste-down smile o’er stage fright hands till you’re gone hello, goodbye
2.
“you’ll just have to wait” (sanden/reyes) what unseats your heart? a hand held overlong in the dark? landscapes grow louder echoes how your heart beats harder so the story goes colors rise as you start to know here’s another like me but darker apparently more free what would unseat your heart? a hungry glance tips the cart a bus ride to some place new a little thought as it forms in you you’ll just have to wait until we break in two now is the time to say it all the room is as quiet as the arctic now the television racket is off the music stopped the heckler has been removed now I’m listening to you you’ll just have to wait until we break in two
3.
“national spelling bee contest” (sanden/reyes) baby, who knew how you’d grow? the queen of 10 million nationally I saw you passionately fight a war scary for just a wee girl video shows you had your reasons you got your reasons you had your reasons b-e-l-l-a-t-r-i-c-e bellatrice, bellatrice now you’re 20 years older and queen of my darker regions finer feelings, new religion you move your hand so lightly sex is language with the way you spell it the way you spell it the way you spell it on b-e-l-l-a-t-r-i-c-e bellatrice, bellatrice the battlefield’s neglect pyrrhic victory feel your lips reject the spell upon us b-e-l-l-a-t-r-i-c-e bellatrice, bellatrice bellatrice, bellatrice bellatrice, you’re so mean bellatrice, you’re so mean

“you and you alone” (reyes) isn't it a shame can't get in the game even when the rules are bent you give your turn away and no one is to blame unless there's a mirror there to force your weary eyes to close so you don't have to bear the life that you have chosen and even though you tried not to hurt a soul you only save the pain for you and you alone isn't that the way your sadness seems to stay it takes ahold of every bit of hope you might have saved and no one is to blame unless there's a door that you can close and rest against within away from everything just like a second skin and even though you tried not to hurt a soul you only saved the hate for you and you alone aren't you the best you can be? or are you someone like me? who can't feel a thing whose arms reach to hold who saved all their love for you and you alone wasn't there a day when you could safely say that you were part of everything without a role to play now all you feel is blame for everyone whose life you touched to only run away to hide there in the dark and think that that's the way to cope with what seems now the only place you'll know the burden and the pain of you and you alone and even though you tried not to hurt a soul you only saved the pain for you and you alone

Hot Love 02:25
“hot love” (sanden/reyes) hot love in the blazing sun your skin, are you winking again? revive like the desert in rain comes back again it’s coming back like it never left before we were only suffering a lack of love hot love in the summer time orange hats to keep the rays held back got love, though it’s sweaty it flows it’s coming back like it never left before we were only suffering a lack of love deep down inevitable return of a summer of love the pull of tenure on heartstrings singing again it’s coming back like it never left before we were only suffering a lack of love your inner child smiling like you loved me more we were only suffering a lack of love

Contagious 02:23
“contagious” (reyes) welling up like tears everyday appears and then recedes it's choked with weeds like a vacant lot pretty soon there's lots of space for you to dig your grave but don't let it kill you stay immune keep on humming that same, sad tune no one could believe that a tiny seed could change the face it takes the place of a stretch of road hauling off this heavy load might suck, but what the fuck but don't let it kill you stay immune keep on humming that same, sad tune don't let it kill you
9.
“anti-antarctica” (sanden) it’s been sold so I hear the bathysphere drops deep deeper every single day with a photo finish of the last unexplored place so come to me now come further south antarctica anti-antarctica if it’s free there’s shock therapy the l.l.c. comes slouching southward for a fee as neocons swallow the key so come to me now come further south antarctica anti-antarctica anti-antarctica the vampire is in the apartment now can’t shut the front door he is here, nonchalant feeding on what we want come to me now I want to go south your winter regions your antarctica I want to get high on the flash of your eyes your body’s conquest your antarctica
10.
Egypt 03:34
“egypt” (sanden) we slaved, pushed on eight years of work with sweat we’d erect a pyramid of hurt heavy but in egypt no one’s building in the desert these days * oh katarina, katarine the moon was on, I felt like singing I felt impulsive love burning deep can we recover? no longer lovers no more comfort inside empty towers echoing oh katarina, katarine * from the poem “On the Strength of All Conviction and the Stamina of Love” by Jennifer Michael Hecht

Shiyoganai 03:45
“shiyoo ga nai” (odie) sharylin finishes everything she sets out to accomplish everything is all done with no accomplice when nothing is left to be done she smiles and says “it’s allright, it’s just the night, and it happens to be all of the time” shiyoo ga nai barrelin’ in her valiant and showing her greedily appreciative demeanor leaving just traces of debris in the green room so nothing is done but it’s right just smile and say, “it’s alright if the mighty might won’t let it happen it’s just the night” shiyoo ga nai sheryl she barely understands anything that I do so demo nai but then again I too so nothing is done but it’s right my smile will say, “it’s alright!” shiyoo ga nai ton demo nai it’s just the night shiyoo ga nai shiyoo ga nai shiyoo ga nai shiyoo ga nai hey shiyoo ga nai

“johnny appleseed” (sanden) johnny took a burlap sack and tied it johnny had started to row he said, “maybe momma I won’t make it back.” momma said, “I don’t want know.” but if you have got to I don’t even want to know darlin’ baby give em’ what you’ve got to sow but I don’t even want to know how there is soul even in the smallest seed I’ve seen it I should know oh! darlin’ baby why do you drive me crazy? sleeping so lonely in a log with a wolf? there’s darkness all around in the dawning winter I can feel it way down in my bones so when I look out on the golden orchard I can almost taste the snow courage is only everything I needed to hold and self denial I needed to let it go but surely you wanted to know how could a man forgo everything and sleep outside with the wolf? oh! darlin’ baby why do you drive me crazy? sleeping so lonely in a log with the wolf? you’re darker and stranger I saw it in you, baby smarter, even god-sized alone with the truth so when I look out on that golden orchard I can almost taste the snow I can feel it coming down in frozen clouds clouding over our souls
