Iridesce 03:39
Would you be annoyed by a scene lift? I’d control it; your comma’s impatient. I ripped your corduroy, but I don’t wanna date it, it’s better in a lazy void, can’t decide to take you off my shoulders… It paralysed, in an even layer over, have I come far? It’s taken me under, and I swear I didn’t notice I was westernised. It’s mad, the hum… I’m at the summit. Could you be destroyed? Should your speed shift? You chose the colours, but I’m honoured to have weighed in. Am I in your joy, had I hit your ceiling? I’m an ogre, but I’m running it close. Do I really have to resit if I think that I can cheat it? If I don’t show face, the numbers know... Is it arrogant to leave it? If I blinked it wasn’t real. Hint: I wish I’d stayed Canadian, when the four of us were moonlit, it was pinker than I’d seen it, our oil glowed, rained - radiant. Cut it at the join, did you see rifts? It's my layover, and I don't wanna waste it.
Famous 03:53
You told that guy where he could take it, you couldn’t contain it. …honestly! …and I’m too tired to try to be gracious, I’m probably blameless, probably... You sit on the same right hand, and it could’a stayed like that, this isn’t the way I planned, couldn’t you cave? I have. If I can’t be what you want then I guess I won’t be what you want, and I won’t say it again. If only I’d died before, I’d probably be famous, but I heard her sigh before, and it was contagious. You sit on the same right hand, and I guess it’ll stay like that. This isn’t the way I planned. Are you afraid? I am.
