Track Name: Rilke Wrote Not to Write About Love
Life! I love you! I live you!
Revolve around you!
Evolve as you do.

Light, I love you, like life
But I'll leave you
Believe me, bereave me

Here we are!
We're back again!
Turn around
Now let's begin

As you were meant to go on
Track Name: The Accursed Share
I need a witness!
Witness the witless!
With this sickness
What is this?

We shall be never free
As long as the economy
Divides between you and me
You and me- a dichotomy

Unbearable whiteness
Destiny manifest
Complicit in conquest
Protect your interests

The Accursed Share

Catastrophic chain events
Turning terror into cents
Never mind the consequence
'Cause they don't count common sense

Debt upon debt
Track Name: Not what I said, what Edward Said said
Antioch! Antioch! Open your gates!
Antioch! Antioch! Don't make me wait

What did you think you would get
When you opened the gates of hell
What did you think would happen
When you dreamt up this so-called heaven

End the siege
Track Name: Benny and the Jestream
The day we hit the coast
Shattered, yet pacific
The day we hit the coast
Hit me harder than most I suppose

We'll rise again
The two of us
Like fair-weather cumulus
But then we'll fall

The day we hit the coast
Mountains sliding down
The day we hit the coast
Drove right into the sea

Highs, Lows
Eyes closed
And everything in between

We'll rise!
