Track Name: Fan Into Flame
the years progress
does my mind lag?
i'm the same, the same, the same
fan into flame

pick me up and shake me
glue my eyes onto you
flood my veins
become a flame

given all we need
my love and me
this child we claim
fan into flame
Track Name: Win Either Way
(in memory of Sue Smith)

see my book?
see my words?
did you hear my words?

one day we'll read your story
what's your prayer?
what's your salvation?

either way, i win

my prayer is for you
Track Name: Peach, You Have Eyes
little heart beat
toes on feet
bones and marrow
taken care of

things in pairs
head of hair
a peach in size
and you have eyes

a punch and kick
mama's been sick
mama's been tired
count down the hours
Track Name: Only Shadows
i'm caught
a fake, a sham, filth
only shadows

so this son sings forgiveness!
father, take me
wash me
hold me
Track Name: So Weak
at the tip-top the smoke drops then rises above
propels itself out of reach
i hope it does leave
to cleanse me
like a boa, it wraps
squeezing my weakest ways
slithering through my holes
shining in my shame
every day it knocks, then bursts through my door
so weak
so weak
Track Name: Lukewarm
not just any way, but lukewarm
stuck in the sludge
stuck in the flesh
not mere man, a life of vapor, could have saved me
