This don't mean I don't love you anymore The fact that my face keep changing This don't mean I don't love you anymore, The fact that I don't die The city sighed with the hit of a fist The little boy stand very still as he shake The city sighed with the hit of a fist And the signs of tomorrow take shape You know I'm sick to my stomach in this rocky bus ride to the edge of the state You know I'm sick to my stomach as we rush to quit the state . . . .yeah, well I wouldn't be surprised This don't mean I don't love you anymore The fact that my face keep changing This don't mean I don't love you anymore, The fact that I don't die The city sighed with a slap to the face The little girl bites her tears to the sun The city sighed with a slap to the face Slow construction of the things to come You know I'm sick to my stomach in this rocky bus ride to the edge of the state Half a tank left, the road stops, the map cut off The sky darkens We wait.

Light up my days and nights for you I can't wait 'til the morning to see this through Light up my days and nights for you I would wait in the darkest bar for you So what if it's built on a couple lies I wasn't drunk, I was hypnotized by sweet sung karaoke lines It seemed like we slipped right through time You don't need him and he don't know you So we can break through Let this town fade into - We will just drive into the morning light I'll stay here 'til you escape from work They've got you hooked on pennies a day Your boss is such a fucking jerk I borrowed the truck, don't worry about what they say You don't need him and he don't know you So we can break through Let this town fade into the morning - We will just drive into the morning light It's a hundred miles or more to go Before we let ourselves rest easy The dust has more secret than it shows I think we'll be all right, just take it easy. Soon it will all be easy.

Precipice 04:14
I need to I need to I need to move on with my life Stumbling to stall on glass knees balanced on a thin knife Over head another jet screams by on invisible lines of light coursing through the sky Solitude throws me and blows me into a silver dreams bare arms she says, I know you, without speaking I know you've done a little harm Now with comfott this close I am haunted by the hammer of the devil closing his hammer on ignorant ghosts I gotta move back to San Francisco that city is cracked and manic like me I've lived in a real house for too many years I gotta get back in a dysfunctional relationship let the sudden highs break my fall Turn to me in the morning and say You make me feel visciously beautifully insane I set myself up for this Secure glass except for the wind and earthquakes now I open my eyes for the final round with fear I know my heart will be broken but I will be healed I gotta move back to San Francisco that city is cracked and manic like me I've lived in a real house for too many years I gotta get back in a dysfunctional relationship let the sudden highs break my fall Turn to me in the morning and say You make me feel visciously beautifully insane

about

This is a collection of work from 2006-7, when I was completing graduate studies at Mills College. I was thinking about music, love, all the buses I was riding, how much tequila it made sense to drink in a given week, if i was going to start taking testosterone to transition. And, there's always more to say but, there are the songs for that - right?

credits
