Track Name: Stranger on the Shore
Stranger On A Shore

You land, descend, a ship without a why
In grim determined mind and from a clear blue sky.

And so, I know, as soon as you can see
In spite of all my love, you’ll take my Id from me.

I’ve buried all my friends, would bury them again
I’ve dug a hole for you, so you will forget my name.

Through tempest, loss and space, I gather here my will
And press it to the place where reason hovers still.

You land, descend, a ship without a why
In grim determined mind and from a clear blue sky.
Track Name: Beat the Drum Slowly
Beat The Drum Slowly

I hear, listen, attend, receive,
your spoken, broadcast and transmitted words;
my drum vibrates in time to taught cords
in rhythmic sympathies of amplified desire.

There is so little to be said without
or within and the gates of verbal
commerce would remain shut and locked.

Beat the drum slowly, whisper me only
stories of summer skies at end of day,
falling asleep in cotton sheets;
such moments translated into musical
foibles and linguistications to facinate
a suggestive tympanum.

Banging my head upon the wall
will crack the cranial egg
so sooth my ossical follicles with song
instead and I’ll close my reddening
eyes whose whites are glowing like
a coxcomb and turn both
to face the wind of auditory balm.
Track Name: Listening and Speaking
Listening and speaking

Listening and speaking
I’ve tried so hard,
I,m trying still

Conversion of form or
Reversal of waves,
A through flow

Noise nonsense
Stut-uttering comprehensive
Educationals

Where coloured sound
Enamorates or vitalises
A decaying mind

Skeletal shifts of
agitated ossicles
In rictus dancing

Do not forsake me,
Oh my darling,
My darling wave

Raise me high between
Liquid and gaseous humours
Into a sonorous peace.
-----
Chorus

A skylark above the hill sings
Of what it sees and what it hopes;
Amongst bracken I wish for wings
And a clear, mellifluous throat.
Track Name: Sonorous Place
Sonorous Place

A decaying mind

Skeletal shifts of
agitated ossicles
In rictus dancing

Oh my darling,
My darling wave

Raise me high between
