B side off of "Love Always,Leviathan".


it overlooks the changing of
times and parts of me.
from suburban sprawl to lonely nights.

When no one else could lend an ear
it could make me disappear.
Set above a man-made lake.
only it could hold my weight.

It's my favorite place on the earth.

I've got rocks under my feet
I'm jumping from track to track
trying to keep my balance
when you keep things from me.

Set in a world so shallow, so judgmental.
But even in dirt, you will find gold.
Hell is just a conduit to a better place.

I'm approaching the house boat
with its roofed caved in
and rotting from the downpour
it's creeping up from the back of my throat and it's begging me to leave.

it's like watching a flower grow without sunlight
it's always operation: quicksand.
wherever light travels i'll be there.
whatever is dark, i'll make glow.
