Track Name: Spectatorship
lights out
solemn plausibilities

pronounce, watch
a waste of thorns

love too much
the long run of history

and what flies up
what else could we have done

a part not apart
wrinkles made smooth

take not partake
take it all apart
Track Name: Safe Dissonance
nothing from nothing
ever yet was born
sin by silence
at home, the enemy waits

empty your golden glass
master anger
moderation is best
run the risk of heresy
Track Name: Note to Myself
the noisome weeds
upon the foot of fear
nothing pleases me
excellent device

what have I done, being young
any stigma will do
put me on earth again
naked I descend

cheating for beauty’s sake
no pity in the clouds
to suffer and endure
thou art indeed just, lord

tragedy’s preoccupation
knows at what time to promise
Track Name: Sophistry
fighting with shadows
titles are dangerous
debased coinage
language corrupting thought
i despair
boundless presumption
holy simplicity
the holy see

the holy see
holy simplicity
boundless presumption
I despair
language corrupts
debased coinage
titles are dangerous
fight shadows
Track Name: Canon
glide away
turn to god
into gold
perishing

the trained mind
awaits chance
without fate
fly

is life so dear,
peace so sweet?
only the saint
chooses his death

avarice,
industry
who can refute
a stylish sneer?
Track Name: Inflating Dwarfs
no man born can set you free
tiny mewling tyranny
loathsome words, repugnant form
brag and scrape and pray and fawn

I speak of what will be
you among their company
puffery and stuffy pride
what are you but a child

teach us what all this means
sacrificed to calumny
bear it lightly, recognize
the thief of fire
Track Name: Swerve
i see the suns
die every day
not knowing how
to remain alone

learn in our graves
the opinion of ghosts
i won’t divulge
my right to be wrong
Track Name: Beware Lilliputians
small soul, wandering
an imbecile with only eyes

sincere ignorance
molds himself to their likes

greatness is hard to bear
your ready answers leave me old
great leap in the dark
your steady answers make me bold
Track Name: Torpor
running
you are
stunning
so far
cunning
why start
one thing
without
nothing
Track Name: Armadillo
all heresies are forbidden
how great are the faults that mar it

your people is a great beast
whet her vulture fang

cover it all with oblivion
look to the end of all lies

shun security
leave a beast of prey
Track Name: Ignorance with Arrogance
a comprehensible darkness
loudness is impotence
an arbitrary veneration
that peers out in sleep

the world does not move
let alone with an arbitrary veneration
a comprehensible darkness?
loudness is impotence
