Track Name: Apologies don't mean shit with yr fingers crossed
i don't need to reframe my feelings
to meet your analysis
i won't justify tears
from a broken back used as a bed
my heart is my home
and you're not welcome
Track Name: Change
what am i forgetting?
who am i becoming?
the brain is built to forget
we are meant to change
Track Name: Desert
no future
it's later than we thought
it's later than we thought
in our hearts we know
the world will not be saved
nature bats last
ghost acres and desert storms
wildness melts and sways
wild hearts break themselves

empire's desert
colonizes your veins
but fire is the basis for
all forms of the mouth

our guts are graveyards
a perennial insurrection

when active disillusionment is libratory
wild hearts break themselves
wild hearts clean themselves
wild hearts avenge themselves
wild hearts take care

wild hearts take care
Track Name: My gender is queer
i am a dream that hasn't been dreamt yet
everyone's got a stake in my identity
but there are no words
to match my lived complexity
Track Name: Call & Response
you're not talking to yourself
i hear you, i'm here
reach out
i'll touch you when i can

"we owe each other more than words"

sharpening tongues
softening nails
weird waves
a dumb determination
our violent trajectory

trying to find fertile soil
a place between sun and shadow
what weathered precarity
for a powerful sorcery
hear me, i won't give up easily
Track Name: Spilling of secrets
we take too much time to say nothing
my pulse, a lightning rhythm,
but no one's listening
my boredom
a reminder
that we're not free
trapped under the weight of civility

there is this separation in silence
the isolation of saying nothing
the fear of what would happen if we
turned our veins into kite strings
fly them high
fly them black

speak too closely
so our teeth click like glasses
no prescription
just a black out
black out
black out
