Track Name: Hyacinth
And I forgot which leg is mine
It's tangled in the vine
That we are twisted in
It's crawling up the walls
And sprouting hyacinths
Higher sins

And I forgot the creation of time
It's an unsteady line
That's missing from this room
We know it's passing through
By the number of our signs
By our size

So bake between the sheets with me
And stay until you finally see
We cannot get out
We can only sink back in

And in the morning it rises to the east
But we have no yeast
To raise our sleepy heads
And we can only feast on pillows
Not warm breads
Not warm breads

So bake between the sheets with me
And stay until you finally see
We cannot get out
We can only sink back in

And I had forgotten which leg is mine
It's tangled in the vine
That we are twisted in
It's crawling up the walls
And sprouting hyacinths
Higher sins
Hyacinths
Higher sins
Hyacinths
Track Name: Gnats
I am swatting you away
You're in my ears, you're in my eyes
You form my tears with all your lies
And I'm getting far away

I am walking through a cloud of you
And I'm wiping you off my arms
I'm picking you from my skin
And all your deceiving charms
Your charms

And you will always be the buzzing inside my brain
The digging in my skin, that never-ending pain
And you will always be spinning around my head
And crawling through my thoughts, and and wandering into my bed
Into my bed

I am slapping you down
But you always fill the air
You are pushing me around
And giving me that stare

You may populate my world
But my heart is bigger than yours
You may spin and twirl around
But that annoying sound will never drown me

And you will always be the buzzing inside my brain
The digging in my skin, that never-ending pain
And you will always be spinning around my head
And crawling through my thoughts, and and wandering into my bed
Into my bed

You are only but a gnat
And I'll swat you away like that.
Track Name: Ethylene
Put me in the ice box babe
Please put me in the fridge
No cupboards, closets, or pantries for me
For I will
I will rot and I will spoil

Keep me in the shade baby
Please keep me under that tree
No UV rays or sunlight for me
For I will
I will rot and I will spoil

And when I do you can't use me anymore
I'll sit on the counter like before
But you can't use me anymore
And I will fall on the floor

Use me as your centerpiece
Please use me in the bowl
No knives nor serving sizes for me
For I will
I will rot and I will spoil

And when I do you can't use me anymore
I'll sit on the counter like before
But you can't use me anymore
And I will fall on the floor
