I trust you Though all you do is lie I trust you Unlikely as you are I trust you Because I love you And everything you say is real You saw angels Not once but every night Only child in lonely Utah caught living with your mom They would drift in from the desert or blow in off the hills You would watch them from your window Just waiting at the gate Preening their desert wings After months of visitation One drifted through that gate Left your mother in the kitchen wide awake Stood brutal in your doorframe Sat softly at your bedside Touched your hollow thigh You changed your name to kill that place You changed your name to exorcise your body Time moves mercifully I will meet you in the city You are my friend I can see you everyday And never turn on you completely Let you come in my room Let you touch on my thigh Let you say all my names At least, we were friends And everything we felt was real Pink supreme What a hopeless dose of memory Pink supreme I guess it’s my dream To be loved like I was by you To be touched like I was by you To be changed like I was by you

Paradise 04:45
Paradise Slid like a snake from your mouth Why should you entertain a crowd You’ll never care about? The porcelain moon Hung high Shattered on the water I knew the end was near But now it’s over You were always so gentle I moan to my toes in the sand No blood on my door frame Could spare me your simple blade Angel of death, you’re already gone That night we watched the mountains catch fire Who can afford a grave in California? When you got everlasting road An emptiness to flow toward? When you’re out on the highway The memories just lift from your head Your legion of demons can’t keep with the speed of ya Angel of fire in an already strawberry night The mountains will crumble Into the ocean The sun will bleed out, the sky decay And the gate will swing open And I will recall you Your body a vault of abuse Your body a temple of its own On that everlasting road To paradise

The Gate 05:36
You call me from the road They tracked you down last week Your mom is finally gone For the first time, you’re free Since you left the sea Things have been okay for me Dressing sets for shitty films But I got work now six days a week I got friendships to keep But they’re just wingmates You got wings And I got some place to be In the morning
