Lurch 02:23
Spilled the milk, can't deter the will Wish you heard me still Murder zilch, earned this pill Burned my final meal Silence on the block Try to endure a chill And thoughts that do not stop Unsteady with the reel I should probably not... A feral dog behind my eyes Inside a fog I duly lie a lot Heights that I desire Reside within a void a mile long I'm too tired to fight or run Cry then write entire song Well beneath the mire Murky depths obscure right and wrong Strongest hate in haste Shake it off and proceed Wake to a familiar taste Relief when it returns just to engulf me A valid point, Diogenes I aspire to a dog on the outside But I'm just human unconditionally In such a state it's hard to disappoint I know what to expect, disintegration of my joints When all else fails...

Bled 03:01
Ice on my screen Wine in my blood I give no fucks No, I give no fucks Grant for me peace Clear from me muck I care too much Watch me pull up tardy Frozen in the corner in no party Pulled the wool for comfort Recognise my need for calming Exercise my present vice Can’t deny I need to buy it My field of vision tight I can feel division Far too much escapes my sight Flag I tow whiter than lines Lies expel that system Index fingers push deep into eyes Cry at your own risk Bulbous blunt straining my wrist Lacerations form a prism Crush my hope beneath my fist This is indecision Still on my bullshit Ice on my screen Wine in my blood I give no fucks No, I give no fucks Grant for me peace Clear from me muck I care too much I can’t help but dwell on my insignificance Vapid breaths between the bells Beside myself, unduly in a pit Adorn my shell with cruelest images Jewelled interior, induced delirium More anxious than I seem Retreat for periods, bitter to cells nobody needs Two eyes to leer at you, you see me out my seat My stride inferior, in my chest a steady beat A pace I cannot keep, I’m wearier Just let me sleep
4.
Back to bank I lean, trenches bind my wings Mud surrounds my knees, wade through pettiness Lost the form of sleep, marks upon my skin Why's my soul so meek? Retreat into my keep, wilfully Wistful heap, wounded, blistering Gift me sleep, wish for pause and reach Truthfully, I flee from current me Cross me slumped, looming form of frailty Weakness won't leave me be Pale ghost inside my head Male boast out from my pen Days choke, contain my flesh Actions don't precede intent These twigs will form my nest Heat brings me out my bed Weed keeps me on my legs Please keep my heart beating inside my chest Without her by my side, it might have come to end

Blis[ter]s 02:31
Applied meaning hit me with waves of calm and seething Denied a reason, I’ll have to be fine for the time being Came incorrect, never conveyed what I meant Boulder above the bed knocks me out nightly Stain on the boot, ask for the loot nicely Stomach full of soup, the tree root is too pricey Pebble in my shoe choose to spite me I stomp it in two, push the thorn deeper in my side Force a chill down my spine Friction forms a blister Wrist colder than Winter One of three things I would wish for Friction forms a blister Wrist colder than Winter One of three things I could wish for Viewed the bigger picture, wish I didn’t It filled me with indecision I decided not to listen Now is not the time to have opinions Dig my thumbs into the swisher This is temporary bliss and I will miss it This is temporary bliss and I will miss it This is temporary bliss and I will miss it This is temporary… Swallow potent words Wallow in the herb I smoke Like Californian fire scorched the earth And if it could, it wouldn’t warn you first When your place is uncertain You’re quickly forced to learn Upon the land that I observe To there I surely will return

Defeat 03:16
Take heed, kind words to repeat Not so kind in the heat My kind used to defeat Sophistry bores holes in your feet And it's tiring me Out here I observe the entirety Street level with a wealth of needs Knees settle on a rhythm rather steady like a silent string Never ready for when quiet ends Shine a light deep within my being Hope I don't get stuck here in a pinch In this realm, all I can do is whinge Inner self screams “tired of this shit” Outer shell, young and frail, subdued by the switch Well deepens as my heart's within reach of my hip I'm in need of a spliff, I'm in need of a kilo of piff Equipped the earth, now my boulder is chipped It's a burden to need meaning to live At it's worst, it's a curse to exist My search beyond heads in the dirt With my face inside shirt And I hurt within known universe I've been trying to earn a life lived on my terms But my words beside worth My words beside worth Take heed, kind words to repeat Not so kind in the heat My kind used to defeat Sophistry bores holes in your feet And it's tiring me

Lens 02:51
Devil on my chest Quick descent left deep impressions then Curse under my breath View the world through dark suppressive lens Grovel at my best Flourish within deep depression Comprehension scarred my vision I can't seem to see the end Scarf around my neck is wound to keep the cold inside At night I roll around my bed Sleep is wasted time and I'm approaching death Still life's a chore for no reward I'm worse at coping than them I'm worse at coping than the rest It's just a test of patience Still hard to keep a level head Use of restraint is basic Most realisations what I should have said Too late but I cannot contain my stress I'm meant to keep the mess within a form you could trace with a pen But my mechanisms faulty and right now I'm stuck with them Devil on my chest Quick descent left deep impressions then Curse under my breath View the world through dark suppressive lens Grovel at my best Flourish within deep depression Comprehension scarred my vision I can't seem to see the end Furrowed brow the cherry sat atop my scowl Whip in my face hangs from my crown Scar me ’til I cry aloud Mark me on unblemished ground In spite of doubt I shed my silent shell when no-one’s round To witness taps turn into pounds This gate is shut, I’ll wait it out
8.
Serpentine 02:52
Earnest in new phases Learned to read a body Analyse the looks upon new faces Before I flee, I scurry Organise my pain into a cadence Revel in the wake of waves of worry Instructions on a page that could be changed by anybody Stars will test my patience Waiting makes me sluggish Eyes resent the pavement Carve into it nothing I await the day when I can think of something Dwell upon a state I shouldn't end up in a hurry Careful with your name, it could get sullied My conjecture on the page is stained and bloody Snakes evade my gaze and stick it to me Vultures take their time, circle above me I retreat inside, my hollow's comfy

Alien 01:57
Pull and shift so quickly Tow the spliff how Ripley grips a stick Eventual perdition Drew me back into the midst of petty business Watch me bite my lip A shock to put my funk into remission Held my tongue… What the fuck is this and why's my armour missing? Pain silence my fist Delayed aggression, I'm not made for this Veiled expression, anguish on the skin Supposed lesson I don't listen, I can't focus Hopeless, trust in potent piff Mind an anchor swinging side to side Pardon my existence Heart is sinking ship

Stood tall to spite impediments Curveball spins like Regulus Charred hands reap no benefit Holster on the hip Providence a myth Don’t know shit to keep clandestine Stoke the fire with a hurried kiss Fresh air slapped me on the wrist Future could be looking grim I can sense the scent of death upon on the wintry wind You have sinned At such a depth you can only ascend I am lonely and tense Despite the L, here is Z Not doing well If I depart I’d bite the dust by sunset Stay in my shell Kush coma passes time as I protest Seems I was under quite a spell Loud thoughts that I detest All I can do is lie still Question the vigour and the steel In myself is a fear See you in hell Etch the years in a belt Freedom is near Summon the vier with a bell Told the self: “you should not have come here” Equipped a spear and a pelt
11.
Drench 02:31
Geyser sprays out the flesh Quiet waves of unrest Shy possum, I too am on the fence Reluctant quite often, icy palms inside pockets My complexion masks the red, scoff until I start to vomit Avoidance is a fine option Hide a cough deep in my neck like I wasn't Can't show signs of weakness Scene outside is bleakest yet Got to check my spine is solid It’s hard to get up out of bed, why bother? Death is destined, bet I double checked (Veer from the mirror by default Worked my fingers to a fault Then I got my hand stuck in the salt As it burns, my voice I hold Nervous hold on an adult frame Searching for stability and change Await inevitable sulk Grip upon my neck, lead with one shy step)

The Sun 02:47
Yawning at the sun I guess because it’s been a short while Caught within the crossfire Fanned the sullen bonfire Look what I have done Not performative enough Just communicate in short lines Sometimes Can’t define the moment as it moves by Crawling toward the sun Anxious from the odours Agonised in confines Panic grips the focus I feel hopeless with this blurred eye I’m trying to mind mine Recollect the hum Collect the funds and cop Speaking of, observe them from a distance Got the jitters Tide is mighty high and I be rolling with it Getting too old for decisions And can’t quit shit This city probably won’t miss us Yawning at the sun I guess because it’s been a short while Caught within the crossfire Fanned the sullen bonfire Crawling toward the sun Look what I have done Not performative enough Just communicate in short lines Sometimes
13.
Yearning spawned from loneliness Earnings bought a lonesome death I caught the scent The trail stretched from A to Z I chased, my voice escaped with breath I pay respects to those unsent Livid gods are unrelenting, views expensive Rumour has it you could witness Anything that they could conjure into pictures I wrestle with indecision Sprouted wings and blew emissions On the wind, detect a whiff of potency Not doing what I’m supposed to be And nothing soberly Racked the groceries City’s lost its glimmer, shit is gross to me Born in Winter, cold enough to hear my teeth Close my eyes and twist my fingers I’m Poseidon, watch it glisten Flourish in the deep Well in silence, sing me into sleep Always tired, pressure never ceased Depression instrumental Like the weather, temperamental Melbourne smothers all potential Suffocate in mouldy rental It’s not even safe to beg Separate an arm and leg You must take to get Fill the void in vacant chest Every word’s a waste of breath I’m also excess
14.
Harbour 02:12
Herd me to inaction I could never summon ways to face the facts when I am but a slave to waves of passion Submerge me past my lackings That manifest as fiends, deafen with clanging Bring me to my knees, I breathe in patterns Weave relief and scatter peace Shattered windows on a building buried deep Shards drawn to my spine, inside is me Unsteady grip on leased keys Darkest off my vice, I've tried to be Weakness is the price, don't fight with me Red round my feet Step in the rain, nostrils dripping from the heat Spend a minute panicked as it seeps Fresh out a fluster, tend to roll my weed To quell the beast that churns my stomach, makes me weak Cheek toward the wretched Just shy of a mention Lie in a pile, too tired for extension My harbour will beckon My harbour will beckon Harbour greed, marred by my humanity When my father had to catch a fish to eat Miss me ‘less you’ve been condemned to be Sedate myself to venture past my reach
