tell my fortune right in front of me
show my card so everybody else can see
sits there crying, set upon by knives
looking good, man
keep your head up til you die

all these angels hover in my mind
little puppets freeze my muscles with their eyes
they whisper secrets hanging from their trees
if i behave, perhaps they’ll stop tormenting me

clouds hover
i wonder
i reel
blind manifestation of color
i’ll find the truth in forbidden fruit
rut in the bushes for fun
and bite off the serpent’s head

tuck me in and sing me lullabies
save me from the monsters that the shadows hide
take me to a garden in the sea
chop me into pieces and devour me


from Peace & Love, released September 12, 2017
