Track Name: Deepest Darkest Shame
For

A
A Repinesque lifescape
A Beksińskian horror scene
A Sunday funny for the papers
Or
A Monday morning dream

Or a

For

A
A Scarfeian gargoyle’s face
A beanpole Gaul
Like Chomet’s
A baby narwhal’s shiny eyes
A Kricfalusian toon

Poor
O
S
A
I’ve got to hide it all away
In sinnamon rolls and pacifist runs and Crystal Gems and anime
Hinting at sin
Playing a wretched game
But still
There are some who’ve figured out my shame

Like
▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓

One stroke
Two stroke
Brush stroke
Hush stroke
Don’t let the secret slip from your big fat mouth
Track Name: Shower Thoughts
All the foods I’ll never eat
Flood my mind as I dry off
Fleshy fruits and fleshy meats
Flood my mind I’ve had enough

I’ll give in to chicken strips
The cornucopia rots
I’ll give in to guesswork
Only in my shower thoughts

All the sounds I’ll never hear
Flood my mind as I dry off
Funny jokes and funny fears
Flood my mind I’ve had enough

I’ll give in to bellboy scripts
Whilst Minty’s talents rot
I’ll give in to guesswork
Only in my shower thoughts

And as long as I breathe this air
I’ll put it off for one more day
And swear tomorrow things will change

And as long as I live this life
I’ll put it off for one more year
And save my dreams for when I’m standing

Under water
Under water
Under water
Under water
Track Name: I Will Hope
What will I do if I waste a year in the yellow room with the keyboards and the cobwebs

What will I do if I glimpse your life in the lecture halls that I shunned so I could rest a while

I will hope
That one day I will meet you all again
‘Cos I’m sick of lying around alone in my sorrows
But until that day
I will hope

What will I do if I beam my woes to the sunshine state where the lemurs ran and we fell out

What will I do if I steal your jokes and you play it cool but your anger flares inside your heart

I will hope
That one day I will get to make amends
‘Cos I know this wound won’t heal overnight
But until that day
I will hope

I know it sounds silly
When I phrase it this way
But it’s the only way that works
And I’ve got to let it out

What will I do if you wear my gown while you dab my face and you make me feel alive again

What will I do if our bodies meet on the trampoline and we laugh and cry and smile

I will hope
That one day you will be my friends again
‘Cos I’m scared to find out why you left me crying
But until that day
Oh I will hope
