who stole your cotton lungs today who broke your bamboo spine who wove my limbs into the dusk for i had watched you turn the tide who brought another hour down who came for what ain’t here who whispered through the rustling trees who stood and stared in tears who followed you on railroad tracks who left the outskirts once who scratched these sorrows of our cheeks for they would call us by their name

jet lag song 02:13
when your mother called you were still on the plane high above the sea to scratch the surface a fever in the first place caught beneath your skin when your father called we were still on the train beside the river and the trees to paint the birds pale an earring like a fishtail found behind the scene now your cousins talk to your sisters child and the house is brightly lit no time to go through each memory in ink blue for both our hearts eclipse when your mother called you were still on the plane not too far from mars

escape room 03:04
you’ve put all alarms to sleep now you’re wide awake and from your door to the next i guess it’s just one step see all around and in-between there are stones and these stones end for tonight as we charged them with light so only once or maybe twice your were out of sight take a pen a paper a pause now we can make that crack for when you love your prison and then you burn it down from time to time there’s rumours and these rumours end just for a while and surely when they can start again so all at once but only twice you were out of your mind like in a rush to call your patterns this time you won’t get through you broke a piece out of the puzzle are you completed by it so far away and oh so close there are details and no detail ends right by your side all by yourself with empty hands not even once and hardly twice we were out of this place

leuchtende vögel auf deinem haus aus deinem haus ein rauch der rauch steigt zur wolke die wolke regnet aufs feld sieh der rauch er steigt zur wolke die wolke sie regnet aufs feld im feld dort stehen die schnitter die schnitter sie gehen ins dorf im dorf versteckt die katzen die katzen sie laufen zum see im dorf dort stehen die schnitter die schnitter sie gehen zum feld im feld versteckt die katzen die katzen sie laufen zum see am see finden sie mich am see finden sie mich am see finden sie mich am see finden sie am see leuchtende vögel auf deinem haus aus deinem haus ein rauch

for how long they hold you down eight minutes forty-six and who has heard they shot her down several bullets in her back

so sister did you ever reach the shore they say in every friendship there is a boat but how do i know made out of the contemporary how do we know somebody else and brother did you ever leave saturn from every spot you could see a different moon and where do we go out of the contemporary how can we get somewhere else and mother did the wind catch all of your sorrows they say that there is beauty in every growth but how do they choose the first over the secondary how can they get anywhere else and father did i ever raise my voice the most fragile tiger to jump the past so how did you go from the first to the secondary how can we know anyone else

what is it that makes your hands start shaking what in the world could it be is it how to pronounce our fears is it the foreign policy so in your head you just outsourced the pain and your thoughts they would never disobey but down your spine i can find sleepy mammals do they mean a lot to me they do mean a lot to me it’s pretty clear that the balance is off and now the markets refuse to grow and i bet you would beg their pardon for letting none of those prime ministers go devouring pearls and digesting loans another year of measuring the symptoms while your mixed feelings stay in a gated community they can make an appointment with our agents for a summary is there a start is there a point of reference are there positions not coming to an end what have you found what was so easy to assume are we just trying to save our bubbles with balloons from the delivery of all those tendencies to getting tired of speculations and conspiracies what is it that makes your hands start shaking what in the world could it be is it how to pronounce our fears is it the foreign policy

ruth 03:44
in manchen nächten liegen schwer die wolken weich auf ihr wenn sie im dunkel aufgewacht hört man ihr weinen hier die mutter hat sie ruth genannt wie ihre großmutter hieß den vater hat sie kaum gekannt seit er die stadt verließ im garten spielte sie und lag am abend hinterm strauch auf wiesen wurde laub verbrannt gen himmel stieg der rauch und wie der rauch nach oben stieg zum himmel der war leer hat ruth ihm nachgesehen und wuchs dem rauch schnell hinterher sie wurde wie die weide groß die dort am ufer stand sie legt der roten kirche schon auf ihren turm die hand so wuchs sie in die wolken rein ihre augen sah keiner mehr und keiner wusste ob sie tot oder am leben wär in manchen nächten liegen schwer die wolken weich auf ihr wenn sie im dunkel aufgewacht hört sie uns rufen hier

equinox #2 01:42
you placed the spoon beneath your chin a drop of honey on sunburned skin i swallow photographs to get well soon just like chasing garments to mask high noon slow down showdown night gown lilac frown to count the cracks of each touch screen home to trace the monuments of our ghosts
10.
second skin 02:22
get home and rinse your swollen soul break a leg break a neck step out and share your weary heart i know those are tough to mend and it’s time for the demons to face you it’s time for the tower to fall there’s a line we could never translate no i missed you so much i turned into you come by to meet from head to toe our shadows fairly match choose a door and grab a seat near a mountain find a lake like a mirror in our hands and it’s time for the void just to face you it’s time for the hours to grow there’s a sign we could never relate to i miss you so much i turn into you now the winters are here to embrace us in the morning a lightning will strike now the peak of the season erased us will you speak up for us or do i saw a sign that is hard remember heard a line that is hard to forget stole the time out of separate chambers though nobody could kiss and tell everybody can kiss and tell
11.
to stumble and to fall to stumble not to fall inside out to stutter and to call to shatter not to solve outside there’s a world of snow to whisper not to cry to whisper and to cry broken glass no safe house

wounded song 03:17
now we drop all the cat litter in front of white house now we climb the fence do wipe the lawn our future came to an end here ghosts they can see how we arrive at our blind spot you found half the moon wrapped in my palms its presence has consequences so do you love the information and does it change the way we speak to catch a stone in hesitation to share a lifeline incomplete let me spill all the sugar water at the flagship store let us burst into our midnight laughter scars are plants on different planets upwards we fall to speak in tongues to be humming low downwards we grow there is a pain going to break our bones while we praise the new say did you know the medication and does it change the way we feel to catch a glimpse of co-relation to throw yourself out of the frame

trümmer 01:35
nacht oder tag oder jetzt will ich bei dir liegen vom schlimmsten frieden gehetzt zwischen zwei kriegen ich oder wir oder du denken ohne gedanken schließ deine augen zu siehst du die städte schwanken in den traum oder tod oder schlaf komm zu dem steingarten wo ich dich nie traf dort will ich jetzt auf dich warten wir oder ich oder du denken ohne gedanken schließ deine augen zu hörst du die welten wanken

rural rain 02:04
you song above muddy images back of an afternoon the thirst the lack of birds and the bleached clothes of people here a landscape of weather they call your face uplifted by the stiff wave of clouds so suddenly all eyes are singing hope against the fear you song above muddy images back of an afternoon
