Bloom

Open your mouth wide
The universe will sigh
And while the ocean blooms
It's what keeps me alive
So why does it still hurt?
Don't blow your mind with whys

I'm moving out of orbit
Turning in somersaults
A giant turtle's eyes
As jellyfish float by

Morning Mr. Magpie

You got some nerve coming here
You got some nerve coming here
You stole it all
Give it back
You stole it all
Give it back

Good morning Mr. Magpie
How are we today?
Now you've stolen all the magic
And took my memory

You know you should
But you don't
You know you should
But you don't

Good morning Mr. Magpie
How are we today?
Now you've stolen all the magic
Took my melody

Little By Little

Turned so nasty now
The dark's there
The pillar of my soul
The last one out of the box
The one who broke the spell

Little by little by hook or by crook
I'm such a tease and you're such a flirt
Once you've been around you've been around enough

Little by little by hook or by crook
Never living earnest, never get judged
I don't know where it is I should look

You could want it all, the flag and pole
I'm curling with my love
The last one out of the box
The one who broke the seal

Obligations
Complications
Routines and schedules
A job that's killing you
Killing you

Little by little by hook or by crook
Never living earnest, never get judged
I don't know where it is I should look

Little by little by hook or by crook
I am such a tease, and you're such a flirt

Lotus Flower

I would shape myself into your pocket
Invisible
Do what you want
Do what you want

I would shrink and I would disappear
I would slip into the groove
And cut me up
And cut me up

There's an empty space inside my heart
Where the weeds take root
So now I set you free
I'll set you free

Slowly we unfold
As lotus flowers
Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick
Just to see what if
Just to see what is
I can't kick your habit
Just to feed your fast-ballooning head
Listen to your heart

We would shrink and then be quiet as mice
And while the cat is away
Do what we want
Do what we want

There's an empty space inside my heart
Where the weeds take root
So now I set you free
I'll set you free

Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick
just to see what if
Just to see what is

The bird that's flown into my room
Slowly we unfold
As lotus flowers
Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick
I dance around the pit
The darkness is beneath
I can't kick your habit
Just to feed your fast-ballooning head
Listen to your heart

Codex

Sleight of hand
Jump off the end
Into a clear lake
No one around
Just dragonflies
Flying to our side
No one gets hurt
You've done nothing wrong

Slide your hand
Jump off the end
The water's clear
And innocent

The water's clear
And innocent

Give Up The Ghost

Don't haunt me
Don't hurt me

Gather up the lust and soul
In your arms

Gather up the pitiful
In your arms

What seems impossible
In your arms

I think I have had my fill
In your arms

I think I should give up the ghost
In your arms

Separator

it's like i've fallen out of bed from a long and vivid dream
the sweetest flowers and fruits were hanging from the trees
falling off a giant bird that's been carrying me
it's like i've fallen out of bed from a long and vivid dream

Just exactly as I remember
Every word, every gesture
I've my heart in my mouth

It's like I've fallen out of bed from a long and vivid dream
Finally I'm free of all the weight I've been carrying

And as that woman blows her cover
In the eye of the Beholder
I'm a fish now, out of water

Falling off a giant bird that's been carrying me

I fell open, I lay under
At the tea parlour
I lost your number
And once it's over
Hid back under

If you think this is over, then you're wrong
If you think this is over, then you're wrong
If you think this is over, then you're wrong
If you think this is over, then you're wrong

It's like I've fallen out of bed from a long and vivid dream
Finally I'm free of all the weight I've been carrying

Wake me up
