Track Name: Tang
My eyes alight upon semi-permeable skin
in a lovely diary. I'm trying to find
New York in her eyes.

Washing down my skin and my sins
in a foam container,
lifted up by pot smoke,
cupped inside a lemon vial.

I've got more to say,
don't leave me alone.
I'm sore but sure today
that I'll always measure you in rags.

Cold shore breathing
In 'N Out on the banks of a dark Pacific wave.
Cut up sleeping
in the dank basement of an old American
store where they found the bones.

At the age of eighteen
in a national park,
the bear took him in both paws
and lay him down.

Kaleidoscopic in the back of my mind,
we both started walking home.
We both smelled just like before,
the piercing tang of petrichor.
Track Name: Big Man
There's a big man coming down the tunnel
to bash my head in with a crowbar.
I could delay it for a second, but it's all I'm sure of.
"You've got to make it while you've got the power to,"
he's growling at me in the mirror,
"never let your fear go."

I won't leave it but it might leave
me if I found something more complete
but then I'd find a way to be
more scared than ever.

The frightened strands of thread
hanging from my sweater
are calling out:
"one day you're gonna lose your head."
They're telling me that
someone's always coming 'round the bend
to break your body by your own hand
and to prove you haven't gotten away.

I won't leave them but they might leave me
if they think that I'm too conceited
but I know they know
I'm not that way, whatever.

I'm not a big man
but maybe I am.
I am a big man but
I'm not that big, man.
