Control 02:56
Frame rate is slowing down Random twists; it's all on now Flights scheduled on the ground Pick up Pick up the remote Blocked in a square wave Sined in and sawing away Masters are slaving away I know I know how this works (He who can create control can control creation) Pass me the envelope Delays synch to eighths notes A little noisy on the microphone Pass me the envelope Delays synch to eighths notes A little noise on the microphone Adjust Adjust your expectation Challenge accepted, met, Kees closed.

These words hit hard like a fragmented melody Into my hands and through my fingers These words tumble down like so many hollow pipes From my hands and sing like crystal This grace I need gets whisked away from me Like blowing sand, it can't be captured This face I thought was mine is staring back at me With closed eyes; I don't know her And the apology that sounded so beautiful in mind Crashed to the floor like broken wind chimes On frozen ground These confessions break like the string that form my words Held aloft on fragile cords of tact This is guilt is guarded like my eyes behind the window Staring out at sound in motion I watch them fall, and even as I reach to catch I can't hold them all; I can't hold them up I watch them fall, and the ones that I can touch They scratch me up; they cut me up And the apology that sounded so beautiful in my mind Crashed to the floor like broken wind chimes On frozen ground And the hipocrisy of what I am trying to say Bring me down from my self righteous perch And the apology that sounded so beautiful in my mind Crashed to the floor like broken wind chimes On frozen ground And the apology that I thought would bring you back Sank to dirt like so many wasted tears

Pardon 03:55
Turn and tilt And I missed the point Pulled away And it took me days to figure it out Saved me guilt I'll chalk it up To moral grounds So deeply etched and charcoal stained Tighter, tighter 'til I collapse Tryin to squeeze the life out To stop this shaking Take it back a ways to stable Heavy blanket over shock stricken hours On and off Seven times That's a lie Worn out wires connect at intervals Beg it out Relay the thought Didn't I answer it already In my head Tryin to claw my way up To something graceful Take it back a ways to stable Heavy trinket hanging low at my side Tryin to squeeze the life out To stop this shaking Take it back a ways to stable Heavy blanket over shock stricken hours Tryin to squeeze the life out Stop this shaking Take it back a ways to stable Heavy blanket over shock stricken hours Tryin to claw my way up To something graceful Take it back a ways to stable Heavy trinket hanging low at my side

Little instigation Cords of silk Pull you up Into hallways Open doors Throw you out My determination Casts a light Across the tiles Into hallways Frozen floors Slow your feet Faint light (under the door) Feint right (as it opens) A momentary disconnect Begs you in Begs you in My imagination Magnetic pull Forward march Into the doorway Flashing arcs Assault your eyes My determination Controls your breath And feeds your blood And past the chaos The air is still Ringing ears Faint sigh (was that you?) Faded sight Little instigation Cords of silk Walk you home Pure exhaustion Numbs your mind You can't fight My determination Bends your legs And plants your The darkness beckons Welcoming Holds you in
