Track Name: dreamt call (newer mix)
when I woke up bleary eyed and alone
I already knew
even though I was reaching for my phone
there'd be nothing from you

I woke having dreamt you called me!

if you don't mind
would you do me a favour

tell me just how much you love me
tell me all the things you like about me
tell me all the things I want to hear
tell me just exactly what I would like to hear
Track Name: glass
you thought you wanted her so you told her so

and now you're trapped
between two fogged up panes of glass
reaching for a thread
you might never grasp
and looking for a god
who forgives those who trespass
have you ever known any body else
to change their mind so fast
Track Name: maybe
time for us?
need me yet?
carelessness?
regret!

what I meant to you

transference?
in your head?
difference?
forget!

box up what's left of me
commit to memory
shut the lid and seal me in
a black casket with red and gold trim

WHEN I HAVE FINALLY BEEN INTERRED, MARK MY RESTING PLACE WITH THE MOST THOUGHTFUL OF EPITAPHS. FIND ME AGAIN. I'LL STILL BE HERE. GRASS-COVERED, MY HEADSTONE MOSSY
Track Name: post-fest
do us all a favour
close your nimble fingers
around my slender neck
obliviate my regret

choke the life out of me
like the underwater lily
you tried to grasp while dreaming
submerged, and grinning
