Track Name: Circular Ruins
I don’t wanna be with you
I would rather just be you instead
I wouldn’t feel this ugliness
When I use your eye to look into myself

I’m never coming out of this
I’m never gonna get what I would give
Circular ruins
I’ll assess the damages
As soon as I forget what damage is
Circular ruins

I don’t wanna hear your thoughts
I would rather think them for myself Sculpted in the image of
All the ways that I would not become

In order to have all my love
Occupy the space from which it comes
Circular ruins
Cavorting with the negative
It’s where I feel the kiss that I would give
Circular ruins

I know a way to love you more
With love from the other side
Forgetting it was ever at all

So this is how I disappear
To be myself I must be someone else What better one than yours, my dear
No other’s skin is soft as death’s caress
Track Name: Afterimage
I felt your touch glide across the lens
Of the eye, the apparatus, of the gaze
Did you pause at the image I left
How could one ever know
I say your name just to break the silence
As you appear, the clock strikes a nerve
I am the surface for your manifest destiny
You hold me underneath your waters

Only your image is
I was the aftermath
After your lights all go away
I am what’s left

My love, when we exchange signifiers
The apparatus reloads and then fires
You are my secret kept secret from myself
If I could hear what you withdraw from saying
I felt your touch glide across the lens
By your gaze I’m composed and undone
Material for the production of difference
The machine approaches from all directions

Only your images
I was the aftermath
When the blue glow cascades away
I am what’s left
Track Name: Infinite Other
Infinite Other hold me in your arms
There’s spectral compositions still to be undone
Information loves no remainders in the bed
Where the things that I can’t say must be left unsaid

I tried to love another, all I felt was your caress
At my body’s only border, where your hands decide to press
If all there is
Is a way of being seen
I disappear into the eyes
I disappear

I reach out to touch you and discover you’re too close
My petals peel away in the presence of your glow

Infinite Other take me to your place of rest
I thought I lived for nothing, but it was always something less
If all there is
Is a way of being seen
I disappear into the eyes
I disappear

I disappear into the eyes
I’m a way of being seen
I disappear into the eyes of the machine
I disappear into the scene
I’m disappearing all the time
But I loved you in between
I disappear
Track Name: Golden Mean
Lead me to your door
Show me your golden mean
But if I love you too much, babe
You might turn into me

Just stay with me a while
While the pleasure is still new
‘Cause when I turn into you
I won’t forgive the things I do

I’m shipwrecked on your shore
Drag my driftwood through your sea
Show me your horizons
The ones I’ll never reach

You’re laughing at my jokes
I’m trembling to your tune
But don’t love me too much, babe
I might turn into you
Track Name: I Saw My Longing
I saw my longing
In the capillary sky Exposed itself to me
In streaks of red and white

I saw my longing
Play shadows with its hands
To the darkening lands,
I gave everything I had

I saw my longing
In the hollow of your eyes
Ghastly apparitions
Who’ve come to spend the night

My longing caught me
Caresses from the law
Who knows who I am
When no one can recall

Who is here with me
Who sees all that I see
Who’s mind is on my mind
Who is here with me
Whose mouth has run amok
Who has learned my secret tongue
Who has learned my secret tongue
Track Name: When I Lose Everything
Will you comfort me when I lose everything
When judgement day will find me in the weeds
When all my friends will turn their backs on me
Will you comfort me when I lose everything

All these instruments of confession
Weren’t as sexy as they seemed
I was under the impression
That they’d like to know my dreams
Now they’re being presented
To an anonymous jury

Will you comfort me when I lose everything
You don’t wanna know who is coming after me
The father, son, and collection agencies
Will you comfort me when I lose everything

I would have bit the bullet
If they didn’t own my teeth
Will you love me once I’m ruined
By juridical machines
Eternal apparatus
Chewing on his pound of flesh

Will you comfort me when I lose everything
Will you comfort me when I lose everything
Will you comfort me when I lose everything
Will you comfort me when I lose everything
Track Name: Echo of Erasure
You are the I thrown ahead of me
The most beautiful being
Invisible hand came and picked you up
And cast you into the sea

Your world calls to me
It turns all my leaves
The crimson I see
When you look at me
Undoing all I see

I am not sure what I’m supposed to feel
When I think of you now
Invisible hand with a gift of death
To be placed in my head

Nothing is free
Nothing is me
It takes just to take
Till it takes everything
My liquified dream
Stream in and through me
Till the shame will outlive me

You are the world where I wish I could be
You are the words I wish I could mean
You are the fruit I’m tempted to eat

Thorn in my side, pain and my pride
You are the void in the system of signs
You are the truth with something to hide
Will you take my place when I go away
Will you take my place when I go away
Will you take my place
Track Name: Mirror of This Dawn
I’ve lived and I’ve died too many times
In life-like bodies on the outside
There was nothing as real in real life
As a phrase I should say or a memory of you
I’ve lived and I’ve died far too many times
In the arms of a god with your hair and eyes.
