Track Name: Magpie
I’m a man of means, a dreamer in the straw
All alone in the calm before the fall
There’s a heartbeat now coming in between the words
It hammers down as the sky swallows the birds

If you notice her she’ll leave

Constellations crawl three by three by three
This tiny skull a fontanelle received
In the present tense as the language overflows
It falls apart, a fortune for the crows

If you notice her she’ll leave
But don’t you want to see

Between the summers teeth, there’s a comet in her eye
I’m pinned beneath the beast, between the summer’s teeth
There’s a goddess on my side and she won’t be denied
She won’t be denied

Track Name: Beast
Beast, all the same beast
All the same blood and bone
The same alone, the same alone
This fear of being, all the same beast
See him dressed in flame, full burnished chrome
Saying “As above, so below"

This fear of beast

Beast, all the same beast
The gums and the teeth, this furnace beneath
It's the same beliefs, it's those old beliefs
And this fear of beast

Hold a mirror to your heart
Hold a mirror to your heart

all the same, all the same beast
all the same, all the same beast
the gums and the teeth, the furnace beneath
head shoulders and knees, head shoulders and knees
the same old beliefs, the same old beliefs
head shoulders and knees, head shoulders and knees
Hold a mirror to your heart
Hold a mirror to your heart
