Veiled Matter

The constant dissolution
Of our unholy bodies
Sweet division
Of our material selves
The violence of our desires
Leave our empty shells
Breathless and cold

On the table with scalpel
Watching in slow motion
Just a peek
At the freak show
Of our unwieldy memories
As they fade just like us
Silently behind the veil

Enclosed after we’ve been cut
Quiet and consoled by their misery
We try to escape, unwind, untie
From this place
Tears can no longer drop from our face

We wave our arms
In desperation for this final moment

Smothered in the earth
What secrets will we learn
On this side
What magic is left in this world
We’ll drain it and use it for ourselves
If we stay, just a little longer
There might be a place for us
Still in their hearts

We are just veiled matter
Did we ever really matter
Is there still a place for us
In their hearts
We are just veiled matter
Did we ever really matter
Is there still a place for us
In their hearts
We are just veiled matter
Did we ever really matter
Is there still a place for us
In their hearts

MIDNIGHT BUS

God, these days are just so long and dangerous
I keep dropping things just to see if they will break
It all seems pointless in a world where there’s no us
So I’ll keep stealing from you until there’s nothing left to take

And I’ll sell it for a ticket on the midnight bus
I replaced your diary will you notice it’s a fake
You kept lying to my back and with a knife you carved in trust
You gambled all I had didn’t care what was at stake

Of course the wound healed badly full of yellow pus
You soaked all my bandages in arsenic for gods sake
The fantasy you play truly keeps all my love away
So maybe I’ll strap on some concrete shoes and go swimming in the lake

God, your eyes are just so big and dangerous
I carved your name in the air to see if it would stay
Even the clouds will no longer rain on us
I’m dropping wishes in your bath and they go right down the drain

Maybe my skin was never quite thick enough
You were forced to make a decision without a parachute or plane
And I’ll agree that your landing was really tough
But the blood you lost it barely left a stain

So maybe we should try again for friendship or for love
Just forget the past and let the future take another lane
Cause otherwise I might just lose the will to discuss
You could toss it in the refuse but I think there’s more to gain

DRINKING FROM YOUR EYES

Maybe I’ll be better tomorrow
No longer hiding in the shadows
But maybe I don’t want that to happen
I don’t I want to be free of you
Even if it breaks me daily
That’s something I don’t want to do
Cause feeling my heart breaking
Is the only proof that I’m still alive
I want to always be thirsty
For drinking from your eyes
