Track Name: Mammoth Mountain
I am mammoth mountain
My ravishing ravines
Sculpted by glacial tears.
Ice caps pin-pointed
The oceans can breathe
The sky, the skies
It clears.

Feed from me
Bask in me
Bathe in me
Rest on me
You’ve been needing this
for years.
Breathe with me
Come with me
Smile with me
Sleep deep on me
And we can sleep
for years.

I am mammoth black mountain
My treasured trees
nestle beneath my skin;
The leaves fill their veins
The fruits plump and sweet,
Needles to say
My juices are the sheen.

I…I…I…

I love you
Because I love me
I can love you
As I learn to love me.
(I can merely learn to love me)
Breathe with me
Come with me
Smile with me
Sleep deep on me
And we can sleep for years.

Glean all you need
from my marvellous minerals
Your burdened seed
insignificant to bear.
Is greed not merely a hanker
A need unable to feed?
Go ahead
snatch a rock for your pocket
Rocket your pocket
Harbour me in your palm.
For I am always in you
I can always be in you
You shall never
Never
Tire my balm.

Ready steady
You don’t have to go.
Ready steady
Glow…
Track Name: Mary Rose
Abandoned, discarded,
dismissed and forlorn
You lay there
numb hull penumbral
Lay there numb hull penumbral
There numb hull penumbral.

Robbed of your wealth
Raped by starved stealth
Like so many cheated ships
Are wrecked
So many cheated ships

Tho a few gems remain
They’re shrouded in silt
Embedded with guilt
You shouldn’t have yielded
so easily
Trusted so easily
Trusted
So..

Then one day
Someone bothered to find you
Someone bothered
Fascinated by your wounds
They pledged to unearth you
To redress
your endangered prowess

Hull still dull
But the frame’s being restored
Some days
u even stand gleaming
Fully breathing
In the sunny harboured yard
Your stern bows humble
Fellow humans entamed
By their stirring story to tell
Their stirring story she tells
Stirring stories
Stirring..

Then one day
Someone bothered to find you
Someone bothered
Fascinated by your wounds
They pledged to unearth you
To redress
your endangered prowess.
Track Name: Sense ability
accept yr sense ability

startled by the hustle
bombarded by the bustle
cogs clog up with cogitation
micro matters
dense
too intense
too intense...

hey, don't let them freak u
freeze u
leech u nor beseech u

my senses where i don't find my sense...

perhaps yr strength is in yr weakness
and yr weakness is yr strength

but i'm not normal like i think u r
i'm not normal like you think u r
capsized by the undercurrents
i'm not normal like u think u r

hey, don't let them freak u
freeze u
leech u nor beseech u

perhaps yr strength is in yr weakness
and yr weakness is yr strength

it won't show...

accept yr sensability
it's ability.
Track Name: Plan it complete
What kind of planet are you?
The celestial body that is you
What kind of planet are you?
(what kind of question is that?)

Which art of planet be you?
Integrating all elements in you
What kind of planet be you?
Be you…

Panning out your Venus
Neptuning your Mars
Are you seasonal or seismic,
Tripped up by your triptych?
Transducing your trajectory
Without gazumping
or gazundering
Which art of planet makes you?

How do you scale your peaks,
Peruse your plateaux?
For once I shall refrain
From delving in the lows.
How do you get
from your busy beta state
Down to
Perambulant alpha?
Transversing your terrain
Osmosing your atmosphere
Do you feel it?
Dare to feel it…
Care to feel it?
You know…

The universe is in you
You are complete.

Pan out your venus
Neptune your Mars
Transduce your true trajectory.
Why that’s what planet makes you
That’s what planet makes you.

The universe is in you
You are complete.

I am important
You are important
We are important.
I am important
You are important
And you, and you
Whether you like it or not.
I am important
You are important
We are…
Track Name: to do list
it's the same ole trap with the same ole cheese
luring me under
til i crumple and seize...
Track Name: Heart knock schule
How to reassure the fledgling courage
of the need for needless hurt
and the heart knocks
o the heart knack.

See it seems
that the lil pup’s paw must endure

Those obtuse angels
with their penumbral angles
humbly bearing their gifts
their tumbling unbearable gifts.

With the heart in mind
and the mind at heart
the trick
is not to be bitter

Is it all too complex
We’re too simple to understand?
or is just too simple
we're too complex
to comprehend?
Track Name: Icarus intuitology
i'm prepared to melt my wings
i wanna be that icarus.
i'm prepared to risk those things
if it will render me more generous.

how easy can we make it be?

broken
and u don't know how to fix it
when it's broken
and you can't seem to fix it
kaput
just can't fix.
it might just mend on it own
time
it might just mend in its own;
might it mend on its own
time
it might just mend in it its own
zone

i'm prepared to melt my wings
i'm prepared to share my skins
i'm prepared to lose those things
if it'll leave me less blinkered
less blinkered.
