Eponym 04:13
turn off the t.v. and look me in the eye when we don't speak i'm tired of sleeping tired of careless, empty hours i'm tired of eating my dinner off of paper plates i can't be bothered to step around the holes you left for me i am ready now the sun is heavy it's taking out the glass as light shines in and finds the ceiling and the walls withdraw to leave me where i stand and turned to tackle because the dust has settled just enough to see the room around me is nothing more than six sides on a square i am ready now i've dreamt of mountains taller than the distance to the stars and i was flying though i was naming every single one and fields of cotton never had been farther from my mind i have to smile i only hope that you can do the same and i know i am ready now

le petit patton le petit patton you are my little kitten you're my little song everything turned wrong and as the days grew long they smuggled out the empire and left the t.v. on after we had gone they kept the curtains drawn and i was just a sailor searching for my home you were right you were right and i can't meet you there you were right are you alright? so came the denouement and sentiments withdrawn i took you to the country drunk on abnegation and everything undone we started at square one orion just above us pushing us along you were right you were right and i can't meet you there you were right are you alright? together we grew strong no longer were we wan you really were a saviour my petit patton you were right you were right and i can't meet you there you were right are you alright?

Alberta 02:59
my good friend, it's been a while you're like an honor making it all worth all the time I spent and all the time lost and I did need that, oh my dear friend oh, Alberta, where've you gone to? i haven't seen you in months well i suppose that i've been sleeping and out of context with all the giants and all the fragile loves i'm just now emerging within your grace and i can stretch my arms and legs out and i can stretch my lungs out and breathe again you stir me with lines of endless color your radiant smile that puts the warm to woolen fabric and in the morning i'll capture crisp air to shake trochaic march i'm just now emerging within your grace and i can see the tops of houses and i can see the way here and always home my good friend it's been a while you're like an honor making it all worth all the time i spent and all the time lost and I did need that, oh my dear friend

i get up to the rain racing to greet the dirt played on my roof my own symphony and the only way to tell that time has passed at all the dust that lays upon the book by the sill rain rain rain the boards feel warm and loyal solid beneath my feet and every step i place you rise to receive

Calliope 05:56
and everyday you struggle to wake but you say that you need me in your sleep you're so hard to read but you say that you love me in your sleep you and i we are intertwined i am strings you are strings and as the threads erode i've got knots in my sides you wind me up calliope i am a top spinning round down up down up down up leave me alone

Grace 04:26
as we gather in the chapel here in old kilmainham gaol I think about these last few days will they say that we have failed? from our school days they have told us we must yearn for liberty but all i want in this dark place is to have you here with me grace, i know it's hard for you to ever understand the love i bear for these brave men my love for this dear land but when padraic called me to his side down at the GPO i had to leave my own sick bed to him i had to go grace, just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger for they take me out at dawn and I will die with all my love, i place this wedding ring upon your finger we won't have time to share our love for we must say goodbye now as the dawn is breaking sure my heart is breaking, too as they lead me out to die my thoughts will be of you and I'll write some words upon the wall so everyone will know i loved so much that i could see his blood upon the rose grace, just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger for they take me out at dawn and I will die with all my love, i place this wedding ring upon your finger we won't have time to share our love for we must say goodbye
8.
i'm sorry that you came up to speed with everything and it's sad you never made it out it's okay i guess you had it good for a while i'm not yours to carve not jack-o-lantern prey and your spider legs were getting in the way and like the sun you're unable to decide on which side of the world you like to spend your time and when you keep your complications in tow don't the weight of so many anchors bend your bow i'm not yours to carve not jack-o-lantern prey and your spider legs were getting in the way
9.
from where i stood i could see the tides receding counting on the up leaves me counting on the down it seems steady steady calm i am the language of the windmill and though i cannot tell where my body meets the ground it seems in a fashioned line i am uncertain and untied on fractured thoughts and broken sentences and after all is done i can lie down and shut my eyes of open air and without fences when i stop my head i can feel the movement swelling it's coming up around it's always coming up around it seems in a fashioned line i am uncertain and untied on fractured thoughts and broken sentences and after all is done i can lie down and shut my eyes of open air and without fences

Ides 04:29
they said you died like the mountain but you were just the silent one and you move like fire across quicksand you were the tree uprooted by the winter many years ago close the blinds cut out the lights and pick you off the floor lay you down upon my bed so you can rest once more and when the clouds let out the copper and pennies rained for days the rock that fortified our castle conceded to the waves and sawed-off chair that gave you posture awarded to the floor close the blinds cut out the lights and pick you off the floor lay you down upon my bed so you can rest once more oh, ides i heard you tried to build a structure to put it all away and didn't stay to see the ending it was all too much and then just let the place consume you like an accident close the blinds cut out the lights and pick you off the floor lay you down upon my bed so you can rest once more

it's here i know i know it's almost here right now i know everything is just right i know this time and time will stop i'll play king i am the top the top, top i am the top a light to burn and not burn out spin spin spinny spin spin spin move to the front slide to the left hey hey repeat my keep it seems is costing all i keep there was but was now something is not there i cannot hold on to it all i'll fall down now i will fall the lines rise over my head no one to stand to hear my sound spin spin spinny spin spin spin move to the front slide to the left hey hey repeat this time is just a waste of all my time for now i think i'm good with what i go for i'm seen in circles reading scene i'll step up i split the mean the mean, mean i split the mean and so rebound i never fade spin spin spinny spin spin spin move to the front slide to the left hey hey repeat
12.
and you wanted renewal to start over again and you'd make it all right but they laughed at the notion and you spoke of the gems and the streets paved with gold all the precious to own but they poisoned the fountain but they broke your dear heart and dissolved you in wine you forgot why you came so you lived at the stairwell and they broke where you stand and made off with your name so i gave you my bones and made you a cartwheel
