Destrier (2015)

Carry me
Now, more than ever
Thin are breaths of crimson air

 

Cover me
With fallen feathers
Skin the last of heavens glare

 

Color my
Gloaming eye
Be the gush of moaning flames

 

Release the restless roam in hands
Arise all limbs of sin to the highest fall of man

 

The beast walks with me

We hold by skinny hands
Trying to warm what age has chilled
Weary wintry lands
Where breaths collapse, arise and thrill.

 

Our sighs fly high above
The sea leaves salty licks and pale lips for the weak
We no longer let us love

 

Be the end of heartache…
Be the end of heartache…
Be the ember
Anew us
This dark water drags us together

 

Hope cracks with every breath
We’ve bathed our eyes on darkest shores
Crude waves with lengths of death
Washes over us once more

 

Our sighs fly high above
The sea leaves salty licks and pale lips for the weak
We no longer let us love

 

So linger
Let the worst of us collide
So linger

 

Be the ember
Anew us
This dark water drags us together

I see your ghost
It finds no rest
Leaning close
From crest of bed

 

“So lonely is the night, pull me in tonight”
Loneliness has…

 

Chest races
My best evades
Tongues will climb
And we taste escape

 

Own me for this night
Hold me close tonight
Loneliness has only shown me I can’t let you go…

 

Tainted nails paint the red of tails
You’re guiding gust through every trail
Writing lust through every trail

 

Deep screams underneath these sheets
Pull us tautly
Leave us thrown
Haunt inside me
Leave us thrown

 

We both belong to longings of past
Can you see the pyre below?
We both belong to longings of wrath
Can you feel the fire grow?

 

“Lonely is the night, pull me in tonight”
Loneliness has only shown me I can’t let you go
This burning paints us wet with silhouette sweat
Own me for tonight
Hold me close tonight
Loneliness has only shown me…
Loneliness has only shown me I can’t let you go
This burning paints us wet with silhouette sweat

 

We both belong to longings of past
Can you see the pyre below?
We both belong to longings of wrath
Can you feel the fire grow?

 

Loneliness has only shown me
I can’t let you go
Slowly show me
How to let you go

Sweat is thick on hide
Setting sun alights
I’ve combed each hardened hair with crooked fingers and shed my share

 

Tameless, still I climb
Reinless beast is mine
And we ride to face the stark blank sky

 

Blood is in our eyes

 

Blood is in our eyes
Death is all we see
Catacombs arise
Destrier and me

 

Galloping through night
Devastation breathes
Cannot close our eyes
Destrier and me

 

Blood is in our eyes

 

Not a word we need
Numb is a world of speed
Wild wind leaves licks of steel
When it is whistling with racing love

 

We won’t slow our haste
When there’s blood to taste
Let us ride to face the stark blank sky

 

Blood is in our eyes
Death is all we see
Catacombs arise
Destrier and me

 

Galloping through night
Devastation breathes
Cannot close our eyes
Destrier and me

I’ve lost control
Had the heaviest heart on hold with the weight of gold
I’ve slowed my feet on these tired grounds
Where deep dread still grows

 

I can’t be near
With these flowers I’ve picked, I fear
They all lost their colors
Time spread their arms toward the heavens
And bowed down to hell

 

Have I been giving you up for more?
Have I been giving you up for more?
Have I been giving you up for more?
We’ve all lost love
Words would be withered without you
Wait for me
Have I been giving you up for more?
You know I’m keeping you all inside this light of mine

 

I can’t see clear
The rage of rivers roam every tear
They all fall through vague and vast tunnels
With hurts of hatred came blinding years
Will they disappear?

 

I’m far away
Treading a path I’ve made
And it’s laid with stones of fallen love
I need to feel and to make atonement
Before coming home

 

Have I been giving you up for more?
Have I been giving you up for more?
We’ve all lost love
Words would be withered without you
Wait for me
Have I been giving you up for more?
You know I’m keeping you all inside

 

Will you wait for me?
Will you wait for me?

 

Have I been giving you up for more?
Have I been giving you up for more?
Have I been giving you up for more?
We’ve all lost love
Words would be withered without you
Wait for me
Have I been giving you up for more?
You know I’m keeping you all inside this light of mine

 

Have I been giving you up for more?

I’ve escaped
Sundering the face of cadence
Impatient
to find the place where I was found

 

No longer skin to dull the pain
Adrenaline reclaiming aging sirens

 

I remember
Still I remember howls of youth
How pasture gleamed with pearls of dew
When everything was vibrant
When life would run with lawless legs to race the sun
Let’s escape

 

I’ve escaped
Sundering with waves of violence
Defiant
Now I’m in place and I am found
No longer skin to dull the pain
Adrenaline reclaiming aging sirens

 

I remember
Still I remember howls of youth
How pasture gleamed with pearls of dew
When everything was vibrant
When life would run with lawless legs to race the sun
Let’s escape

 

I remember
Still I remember howls of youth
How pasture gleamed with pearls of dew

I’ve escaped
Sundering the face of cadence
Impatient
to find the place where I was found

 

No longer skin to dull the pain
Adrenaline reclaiming aging sirens

 

I remember
Still I remember howls of youth
How pasture gleamed with pearls of dew
When everything was vibrant
When life would run with lawless legs to race the sun
Let’s escape

 

I’ve escaped
Sundering with waves of violence
Defiant
Now I’m in place and I am found
No longer skin to dull the pain
Adrenaline reclaiming aging sirens

 

I remember
Still I remember howls of youth
How pasture gleamed with pearls of dew
When everything was vibrant
When life would run with lawless legs to race the sun
Let’s escape

 

I remember
Still I remember howls of youth
How pasture gleamed with pearls of dew

Be the last length of strength for me
Be the last line of walls and defense for me
Be the last length of strength for me
Be the last breath of wrath and revenge in me

 

Be more than us
Be powerful, patient, proud


And end the slaughter

I woke up with charcoal hands
Clouds of grime crimes crown their hatred
Fingers bound by iron bands
In palms they stay clenched through the night

 

Wounds are green, neglected while I
visit never-ending scenes, where the frenzy speaks
Words of just repeated till bloodlust floods us

 

We open up to see hell
Keep my teeth so deep into the lips where fury cries;
“I want to see hell”

 

Pour your oil into their lungs
Let it boil black, blistered tongues
We both know nobody returns home from war

 

We open up to see hell
Keep my teeth so deep into the lips where fury cries;
“I want to see hell”

 

I know my hands still reach for hell
Should I feed them the fire?
I know my hands still reach for hell
To condemn or to crown?
To condemn or to crown?
To condemn or to crown?
To condemn or to crown?

 

Drops of bleach, discolor their eyes
Leave them never-ending seas of uncertainty
Still we know nobody returns, home, from, war.

 

To condemn or to crown?
When will metronome count alone?

 

We open up to see hell
Keep my teeth so deep into the lips where fury cries;
“I want to see hell”

 

I know my hands still reach for hell
should I feed them the fire?
I know my hands still reach for hell
Should I feed them the fire?
I know my hands still reach for hell
should I feed them the fire?
I know my hands still reach for hell
See Hell
I know my hands still reach for hell
should I feed them the fire?
I know my hands still reach for hell
We’ll leave you for now
We’ll leave you for now
We’ll leave you for now
We’ll leave you for now

Seats are rusty wails
There is no light
There is no north
There is no guide
He’s no more
Never did his tongue pave roads for us
To mend his broken heart
When golden tears crescendo
Let fall

 

The curtain calls your name
They waited then
They’ll wait for now
Your time on stage enslaved forever
Let fall

I don’t know if I know you all
But our blood and our battles still bind us
Why have you come and why have you brought our uninvited fears?

 

And I know faith can’t help but fall
For our phantoms grow taller behind us
Can’t even see the white skin of walls
They’re far too many here

 

When will they leave me in peace?
When will they leave me in peace?

 

Nightly hours bemoan
While demons roam inside my home
Nightly hours bemoan
While demons roam inside…

 

It’s every time when I lay to rest
Within these waves with a call for surrender
The quiet sun claims no aching steps
They’re all still here

 

Nightly hours bemoan

 

Will tomorrow come with no one else, but me?
In this house of drums, they’re all I hear and see
Don’t let them ring the bell of age for me
Don’t let them ring the bell with hearts debris

 

When the pale appears
Their cries are enough to echo nightly skies
Erase sunrise and cloud the clear
When the pale appears
Their cries are enough to echo nightly skies
Erase sunrise and cloud the clear

 

Nightly hours bemoan
While demons roam inside my home
Nightly hours bemoan

 

Will tomorrow come with no one else, but me?
In this house of drums, they’re all I hear and see
Don’t let them ring the bell of age for me
Don’t let them ring the bell with hearts debris

 

Will tomorrow come with no one else, but me?
In this house of drums, they’re all I hear and see
Don’t let them ring the bell of age for me
Don’t let them ring the bell with hearts debris

 

Don’t let them ring the bell of age for me
Don’t let them ring the bell with hearts debris

These words wear subtle wreaths of sweat
When will they reach reset?
Detest this helpless lull of fear
Beset the angst in tears
Forevermore leave my heart
Leave my heart

You are mine and I am yours
Stars have darkened
We eclipse

 

Let your eyes rest forevermore
Leave the battle at your lips
No longer you carry me through the fiery flames
We roar, no more

 

Mountains once so undeterred
Now, but broken, blackened ribs
So real…
Can your rattle be heard?

 

Oil arises deathly kiss
Lungs of night breaths beds of mist
Love fades before my eyes
Sorrow celebrates your sounding ail
So now, exhale

 

You were mine and I was yours
Nothing ever stays the same
What was mine is nevermore
As the bell tolls out your name

 

No longer we cover loss with feathery shame
They soar, no more

 

Can I conquer all with words?
Am I crowned with wreath of wings?
So real…
Can your rattle be heard?

 

Wept in mane a thousand tears
I can’t reclaim those blinding years
Hate has bereaved me
Sorrow celebrates your sounding ail

Blood is in our eyes
Death is all we see
Catacombs arise
Destrier and me

 

Galloping through night
Devastation breathes
Cannot close our eyes
Destrier in me

We have slept with waking eyes that calmly quiver
Dear are desolated nights
We’re all there is

 

We let the sorrow sing
Through the stillness
Conquering
The sunken sun inside us will follow the hollow
For sorrow sings…

 

We have celebrated death, our fallen feathers
Reminding us each day is best
We’re all that’s left

 

We let the sorrow sing
Through the stillness
Conquering
The sunken sun inside us will follow the hollow
For sorrow sings

 

We’re greeting the grief tonight
We’re bleeding by bitter bites
We’re screaming with heights tonight
With open strings

 

The sunken sun inside us will follow the hollow
For sorrow sings

A Long Time Listening (2010)

Restore these sounds
As the night gleams clearing sighs
I’m listening
Restore these sounds
Recite

 

Restore these sounds
As the light-beams sway in the day
I’m listening
Restore these sounds
Recite

 

Restore these sounds
As the looming shroud replays
I’m listening
Restore these sounds
Recite

 

Restore these sounds
Walking lurid luminous waves
I’m still listening
Restore these sounds
Recite

 

Weaves of the sea
Are still glistening
To the beat of my feet
Control

 

Breathing in breeze
Reminiscing
To the deep in lungs sweep
Encore

 

Repeating beneath
Are you listening?
Seeping beliefs
No more

 

Clinging on wreath
He is listening
He is listening
He is listening

Instrumental

Try to sleep
You should
Try to sleep
You’re in every single part of me
I hope that you know

 

Try to sleep
You should
Try to sleep
Sister wet his lips
Mother bless his trip
I hope that he knows
We’ll follow

 

We are all here by your side
We are all here tonight
We are old here by your side
We are all here in mourning light

 

Try to sleep
You should
Try to sleep
Warm summer wind
Blows these white sheet sails
The sundial ship awaits him

 

Try to leap
You should
Try to reach
Into highest air
You’re almost there
As long as you know
We miss you

 

We are all here by your side
We are all here tonight
We are old here by your side
We are all here in mourning light

Keep resting on my arm
The seething sparkles numb
Your shining strings brings out
Those old songs of
Voiceless nights
Tints
On your yearning skin
Hands moving in
Hands moving in

 

And you don’t have to speak a word
Heard it in your heart
Beat
Skips a lot
If only for me
Am I the only one left in this place
You’re the silhouette of my wants
And my needs
My needs

 

This scenery reminds me
Of a lightbulb universe
Who are you now?

 

Still everything reminds me
Of our lightbulb universe
Who are you now?

Swim
Have to swim
Lips are leaking
Speaking oily trench remarks
Not hearing clearly

 

Swim
Have to swim
Portraits drinking
Sinking thoughts of old malign
“Did I design this”

 

Swim
Have to swim
Foam the fringed skirt cringes out
An old familiar hurt
“Undress the rest”

 

Swim
Have to swim
Floating feathers wait for whispers to pervert
“Who loved you best”

 

“These arms are oars”

 

Swim
Have to swim
Plastic vultures costume caskets to aboard
The deep wide chasm is near

 

Of keen gaze
Tell me now
When choir has sung and notes decay
Tell me now
When all seats have been left
Tell me
Why this writhe
Belongs to you
Please tell me
Just how many harmonies must orchestra feed
Of keen gaze
Keep singing on and on and on

 

Swim
Have to swim
Chin is weakening
Gasping invitations to
An empty ballroom

 

Swim
Have to swim
Legs are sleeping
Grasping imitations to
Avoid your womb

 

“These arms are oars”

 

Swim
Have to swim
Behind a burning flock of paper doves
That’s given up on love
All drown with horses

Pulsating through
Wary dew
Summer loss
Coughs

 

Carry through

 

Opaque talk
Repeats
Bridle release
The droning fatigue
Corroding in sleep

 

Barely with brushstrokes we followed
Barely our palms combed the sky
Barely we all held off morrow
Carry through

 

Bold holes daunt
Beneath
Death is young
And aggrieves
All speeches into
A world that we knew

 

Carry through

 

As sapphire salt runs in streams
Translations are all in me
“Through polaroid roads, we are leaving”

Skylines
Drew lines
Under my eyes
How the chime came quickly

 

Air
Sheathing vast
Whistling past
All the coats of quaint galore
You know
I need more
Come purple dusk
Remember us
Elate the dust anew
Oh it knows I need

 

To bleak physique of streets
My my
Crooked friends
All descend
To an ending
Believing in me

 

Beneath
Stampede
The world gives in
From unholiest of heights
While I lead them with me
Believing in me

 

Spit shine
Howls in hands
The arising phoenix
Demands through squalls
A senex
Believing
Believing in me

 

Goodbye
Breaching high
Leaving oceans
Now the palpitating air
At last
Believes in me
Believe in me

 

It’s been a lonely high
A long time listening

Keep your head down
This won’t last us for long
Keep your head down
A firm feathery fold
For one last

 

Hush, hush the heart
Stretch of skin begs
“Don’t leave me anchored in the dirtiest deep of hope”

 

How long until the sun
Wears the doubt
Screams out horror
How long until
The warmth of his fold
Fades away
How long until
The soul spew

Flay
Open up
Let swirl through
In mute

 

Flay
Open up
To pure and cruel

 

Flay
Open up
To pasts perfume

 

Illume the eyes
Shawl rewinds
Returns
While my teeth are still scribbling
Carving yellow nights
Composing heights

I’ve seen enough
Had to fall with weight of water
I am the chords of jealous winds
We call for lovers
For who knows
How long until…

 

Sleep draped my heart
And gathered golden salts of sorrow
I know them all
One wore doubt and screamed out horror
And it knows
How long until…

 

The echo an ode to the pause
I am

 

How long until the sun…
Oh the echo an ode
The echo an ode
To all that is paused
How long until soul spew

 

This minuet
When all is young and clouds are heavy
Rusty yells and past regrets
A memory
Oh a memory
Severs me
And it knows
How long until…

His scent
In vague

 

This dark
Is all I have

 

In silk
Wild woes embrace
The longest dazing gaze
No light can haul this wall
It’s all I have
Await
For his hands to warm my heart
For his sounds to conquer
Stark
Lone
Dark
From afar

 

Nights
Peeling light
Fearing light on skin
All these
Implosions
Know the oceans somber motion
Now here’s the fall

With a cannibal love tongue
Leaving the mouth long
Cavernous
Then drawn
It stays awake

 

The sea is hung
Know no glow
No glare
The darted air
Grows dark

 

You are leaving me nothing

 

Could this be
All there is
I’m breathing through these
Holes through chest
Perilousness

 

Put me on top
Of this catapult
And heave all needs
Perilousness

 

A pall thick of debris
Is shaping shadows
As they lean on me
Perilousness

 

Now that this city’s asleep
Let our bodies roar
The soaring bliss
That leaves lit gust

 

So carefree
Calm me for this night
Leave me
Stay
Clean
Only for this night
Align black spine
Stay clean
Only for this night
For this night
For this night
Will this shame have a name

 

Halcyon
Calm me for this night
Oh this shame has a name

 

She
The night
For giving me
That someone
New
This night
For leaving me
With someone
New
This night
For leaving me
With someone new

Winter knows me

Tiger veil
Tiger veil
I’ve drawn myself right through another painting
Fleeting scenes like blinks
Almost had them
Almost I had them
In heart formation

 

My tiger veil
Tiger veil
Hallways half lit
But still I stagger dressed in dark
My tiger veil
Tiger veil
I roam these rooms to find closure and to forget

 

When will these walls begin to wane me
I still need one more feign
Lungs believed
It’s getting so hard to breathe
This will never be home again

 

I still hear windows preach anew
I still need one more lie
Stars deceive
Arms release
This will never be home again.

 

My tiger veil
Tiger veil
Pervasive wails from old dank curtains all repent
My tiger veil
Tiger veil
You owe me another moment to end

 

Home
It’s home for now

Pull my heart out
My memories of him I fail
To feel
To hear
To scent his smell

 

He is gone now
Without him world is but despair
Can someone please just take me there?

 

The calm
Cool face of the river
Asked me for a kiss

 

I’ll be above these city lights
No one needs to know
But you

 

Can’t go on
A crowd of ghosts surrounding sings
A pair of silver banshee wings

 

So please just hold on
My body echoes from their shrill
This heart is slowly beating still

Bereaved of new starts
Back at shimmery strands
Vast
Where memory hands me
All of the sins
I’ve sent for war
All the sins
I’ve sent for war

 

I’ve seen them destroy
Leaving battered old arms
Grieving
“Always hold on”
Numb was the tongue
When sea flit stand
Humming howls of a romance

 

I’ve seen this before
Stars
Night carpet has blown
Heard with borrowed moan
Ghosts
Own the tempo of my heart
Own the tempo of my heart

 

Can’t recall past few years
Shore spoke gently
“Yet, I feel”
Trumpets triumph
“Let the yield, be thy throne”

 

Most quiet
It’s been a lonely high
A long time listening
