Track Name: Dropped
You dropped out
For want of skill and muscle
Place your skull in the basin
And let your knees go weak
Hearken back to a purple age
When scurvy racked the fleet

And you shouldn't spread around
How easily you lie down
You're a hexagon with stuffed wings
You're a circle too round to keep
How easily I sleep

While you were waiting
The tape became unstable
Expose yourself to the elements
Ah, it's just another way to die

You dropped it
And wrecked your ears, nose and throat
Place your bet in the back room
And let your knees go weak
Hearken back to a purple age
When shit flowed down the street

And you shouldn't spread around
How easily you lie down
You're a hexagon with stupid wings
You're a tea-leaf too weak to steep
How easily I sleep
Track Name: Not space
Boarded up and slapdash
Servile, point to the margin
She shows you around the desk cemetary
Rope lights
Inverse, in verse, inverse
Wonderful liberating puddles of motor oil
In the black cemetary
Yesterday's youth interred
Graves marked out not with stone
But with the furniture they defaced
And their falls from grace
Time passes but not space
Track Name: Torsion
It was the torsion, not the tension
That caught your attention
As the narrative slipped away
Proceed without caution
Pay no attention
To the safety rating
Or the circling buzzards waiting

Your number is your own
But your name is mud on these streets
And the hours and company you keep
Are known, are known, are known
You can never get back home

With the continental shift
And the island slipped adrift
A scene too dark to mention
A floating abortion
