Track Name: Nouveau- Dead Language
did you feel that tug on the ropes?
I thought I caught you throwing out your cigarettes
it's a ritual of the widest scope,
hide in your house until it all blows over
you're looking at the ground again,
you're slouching in your seat again
straighten out your spine, something has to change
you just have to let me know when

could you hear your neighbor's footsteps?
be bated until they disappear again
dive back into nonexistence
it's not cold anymore, but you can still see your breath

the dead are wiser than us all, but their knowledge is lost
I scrawled it out on my forearm: "individualism is a curse"
nothingness isn't as frightening as we think
I scrawled it out on my forearm: "we embrace it"
we embrace it
Track Name: Shahman- Bruyere
I watched them through the window
come off of Bruyere
to pass the flowers and the dying tree
across the weathered deck
among the birds and wasps
I saw him touch
the handle on the door
and as he pulled, I felt relief
they sat on the bench
with brown and tearing skin
across the slab of counter that I leaned on
as I worked I watched the steam rise
from the mugs in their hands
it rose and danced
between the words they formed
