Metropolis Voice 1: At the center of the world there's a hole where the center should be. Where everything stops. When the world spins the world tilts and we all fall off and out in to space... Voice 2: She said, "Organize the people." Voice 1: Deep out in space there's no air. It's okay; we've evolved into things that don't breath... Voice 2: She said, "Everyone should know." Voice 1: We time travel silent and dumb to the start of this whole impossible trip... Voice 2: She said, "Bring to me your questions.” Voice 1: We try to ask our Gods who's to blame for this horrible thing. We fall asleep... Voice 2: ”These answers I have been told." Voice 1: In the dreams our Gods come to us and they laugh and they dance and they sing... Voice 2: "I'd like to build a fountain in the center of the world." "These ordinary people have no need for golden girls." Voice 2: She said, "Grow a tiny garden." Voice 1: At the center of the world there's a hole where the center should be. Where everything stops... Voice 2: She said, "Make the people smile." Voice 1: The end of the world is a sign we know we should read. We've forgotten to see... Voice 2: She said, "If you let it harden", Voice 1: so close up your eyes open your mind. Wasn't it all worth the ride? Voice 2: Then your heart will surely die." Voice 2: "I'd like to build a fountain in the center of the world." "These ordinary people have no need for golden girls."

Complicated Mind You met a day, people say It’s an unattainer’s life You met a fate on holiday, promenade You walked on fire And I fell into Arms so round Bring me up Put me down Where will it lead, to a dream Of an automated life You’re the disease for the cure Girl it makes us unalive And I fell into Arms so round Bring me up Put me down Swear my mouth is open wide Swallow the entire night Not a trace of this place left behind Not a trace of this space or this time It’s all there in your complicated mind

The Ottoman Girl In the foyer of her Hotel room there’s an Asian pair in the easy chair. Eating Turkish fig filled ma’amouls in another room. Scent of sweet perfume. Conversation is preoccupied. Feign a look outside. Fascinating eyes. If you’re tired you can go to sleep. Very indiscreet. All the people leave. She offered me tea The end of the world My head’s in a whirl The Ottoman girl A couple a piece Some more if you please As white as a pearl The Ottoman girl Missing pieces have opened up my porcelain cup and the tea has leaked. Dripping down on her heck inside of her silk elbise. Fascinating eyes. She offered me tea The end of the world My head’s in a whirl The Ottoman girl A couple a piece Some more if you please As white as a pearl The Ottoman girl After all the ma’amouls were gone, in the early dawn on the Ottoman.

Henrietta Lacks A Smile Henrietta lacks a smile Henrietta’s all the while Henrietta lacks her ears Henrietta’s gone for years Henrietta lacks her eyes Henrietta’s always nice Henrietta didn’t know Henrietta grows and grows Henrietta nobody knows it was you Henrietta lacks her hair Henrietta doesn’t care Henrietta lacks a face Henrietta’s been every place Henrietta lacks her heart Henrietta does her part Henrietta lacks her head Henrietta are you really dead? Henrietta nobody knows it was you Could have been any one You were the chosen one You might just save every one

Flowers I’m amazed at the sound around you And your language of half-truth Broken vase is a cause to tend to White bouquet and super glue Flowers Words you say are like flowers They’re floating away Falling down on the ground around you Make me sneeze and desire you Wait a moment you’ll be televised All undone we can run blind Prayer beads adorning you A keepsake from a sadder fool A sweet kiss from a siren unknown Dried out from Sun rays Flowers Words you say are like flowers They’re floating away

Whither Fare Thou Be All of these things we fear Shake them off of your shoulders Whither fare thou be Thou hath made me a soldier All these dreams and only 4am. Fall asleep and fall in love again. Can you see me here I'm floating. Hypnic jerking. A crash landing She was splayed across the ceiling.

Revolutions Home in a madness with nothing to do Most of the ceiling is falling on you You jump across never looking behind Sit on the edge and play never mind Just to see if they fall in a well I've never felt this soft in the day She's always rolling around in the dew Revolutions and the venting of youth She sent a warning to caution my eye A wave and a welcome will soften in time Tips for me if I play in the subway Isn't this feeling discomforting you Curse the morning a song and a fool Isn't this feeling discomforting you

Drop In The Ocean Mariana How deep have you been? Salted water Licked off of your skin How does it feel to be a drop in the ocean? You already know Floating quietude Ice melts in the rain Mariana’s Cup filled to the brim How does it feel to be a drop in the ocean? You already know Waning moonlight No shadow to seize Rhythm Ocean Mariana and me
