Track Name: An Acre of Naturally Fallen Pines
An Acre of Naturally Fallen Pines

The token you choose could change minds;
Watching the flutter behind your eyes.
The fun that you make comes naturally drawn to lines,
Dividing an acre of naturally fallen pines.

You pawn an assurance to buy me a smile,
Subsume devastation in octaves of time.
Jumping the breakers, taking surprise
Out of equations encompassing far and wide.

Crushed by the notions you, static, imply;
Stillness elates only figures apprised.
The fun that you make comes naturally drawn to lines,
Dividing an acre of naturally fallen pines.

Track Name: Parted Lines of Dusty Blinds
Parted Lines of Dusty Blinds

You only spoke in orders a hand-full of the time.
You came over twice a day to hear me play.

Go on and mull it over; impose some symmetry
With your arms perched isosceles, oh sing it please.
Forever, if you want me to.

Every time, I breathe in rhyme
When you kiss me quick and gentle,
And you kiss me quick and gentle
With unbelievable grace.

Couldn't have held me closer, your hair tumbling down.
Now you're leaving with the dawn, and on and on.
Tomorrow's just another day.

Parted lines of dusty blinds,
'Cause my hands are strong and empty,
And my hands are strong and empty
With unbelievable grace.
