Burning Body, Burning Bed this body is burning hide it under blankets and pillows still it howls this bed is burning drown it in water or it will set the house on fire
2.
Let It Die 03:57
Let It Die let it bleed, let it die swallow the blade, drink the poison let it bleed, let it die eat your lip, chew your tongue let it bleed, let it die strangle your desire, take the knife let it bleed, let it die what’s meant for you won’t pass you by

Brussels 04:31
Brussels Brussels, your heart has been corrupted they added a thick coat of glitter on your dirty fingernails they’re sweeping under the carpet the bums, the punks Brussels, your heart has been corrupted we were promised translucent towers while the butcher butchered on there goes up one more office block all glass, no class Brussels, your heart has been corrupted they dug deep into your belly to make way for trains tourists are found drowning in chocolate fountains there’s something slowly rotting at its core you’ve gone from good-time girl to expensive whore Brussels, your heart has been corrupted how many blows to the soul can a city take?

Tiger Heart 02:37
Tiger Heart it’s in our hearts it’s in our blood it’s in our bones it’s in our hands make it tiger make it flower make it snowflake make it flame make it dragonfly make it scorpion make it lightning make it hail
5.
Gold 04:05
Gold i’ve been given a new body a golden one you make my blood purr i wear you under my dress my skin becomes see-through i’ve been given a new body a golden one the flowers come back to life when you walk into the room as do the birds in the pattern of the wallpaper nothing remains unlit i’ve been given a new body a golden one
6.
Lovers 04:06
Lovers surgeons will usually recommend cutting the obedient will usually recommend working i won’t go back to the swamp now that I’ve tasted the immensity of her beauty long may she reign over me i’ll live to see them freeze because of all the things that they didn’t do because of the dust that covers all that they own dust will cover it all dust will cover us all lovers don’t die in our songs only egos get crushed to smithereens long may she reign over me
7.
You, Forever 03:58
You, Forever you, forever said the mortal woman you, forever pleasantly drowning in the pools of his eyes it washes over me fills every pore it washes over me gently breaks me open you, forever she was not the first to say this you, forever you let me see through you in the dazzling sun
8.
Liver 04:22
Liver in the slow hours of night shadows stretch like a cat i take a dive deep inside you while you sleep swim in your arteries slip under your eyelids hear the words stuck in your throat enemies live under your skin i fight them with my bare hands until exhaustion forces me back out lover, won’t you take a piece of my liver? through a sizeable incision underneath the ribcage lover, won’t you take a piece of my liver? you and I have been compatible from the start i wish to give you a piece of my liver please accept lover lover, won’t you take a piece of my liver? compatibility of blood type has been proven lover, won’t you take a piece of my liver?
9.
How Do I Love Thee? i keep myself to myself, sleep alone stay away from drink i’m sane in the sun, I cope with the storms but then you had to show up on my doorstep offering me your wild animal gaze asking for some water why did it have to be me? now I feel I should follow you into the furnace or I should jump into a well i keep my heart to myself yet you always find me how do I love thee? let me count the ways with fear in your belly stiffness in your fingers with a twisted ankle but above all with a broken neck
10.
The Salamander i see with my whole body my heart dwells in fire i drink from the flames and i feel no pain like the salamander i feed on fire and in this way i renew my skin i burn yet i remain undissolved
11.
Depletion of Melancholy i gathered all the pieces of my broken soul stumbled across the garden to the edge of the pond i threw the shreds in the water all is quiet now there is no breeze in the trees i gathered all the pieces of my broken heart placed them carefully in the folds of my dress slowly i walked out of the house towards the river shard by shard I threw my heart to the sun shard by shard, it came back to me i treasure you, heart i treasure you, soul i shall care for you always i shall never wish for death again i love light i love life
