Track Name: Bindweed
now, all my favourite trails
are becoming choked with weeds
poison ivy on my hands
and bindweed in my teeth
Track Name: Hudson
i thought it was him
in the doorframe
it was hudson
as a spectre

i loved him
as a flawed man
and a body

all the waters
and the ice rocks
in the north wind
could not fill him
Track Name: Phantom
last night in the dream
i was found at the scene
moving to the band
they were playing

i was stoned and lovely
something changed roughly
the lamps were shining light
onto my face

as a ghost i was cold
in my dream i was bold
i told my mind to them
to the strangers

in the dark i was alone
at the creek throwing stones
the sound was moving out
across the field

after the show the light went dim
i cut off my phantom limb
my blood was pouring out
onto the grass
Track Name: Beast
there is a beast inside my body
it's shooting smoke from my lungs
it made a home in my stomach
burned a hole in my tongue

i want it gone
i want it gone
deep down inside the swamp
the place where it came from

there is a beast in my brain stem
there are demons in my cells
i'm not quite sure i can best them
and send them all back to hell

i want it gone
i want it gone
deep down inside the swamp
the place where it came from
let it fester there
Track Name: Cedar
is everything the way i planned?
some stars just leave and fade to black
some stars shine brighter
(have i learned it yet?)
will i be remembered when i die?

it's a sick trap
it's a sick trap
this lazy summer
it's a sick trap
and i don't even know it yet

in symmetry and cedar i dream
just to be a bigger man
to shine brighter
(have i made it yet?)
is that all there is to living?

it's a sick trap
it's a sick trap
this lazy summer
it's a sick trap
and i don't even know it yet

oh i, i can't fight it
no i won't be fighting
