Track Name: Ghosts
sit down , my ghost
and whisper all my dreams
my road on a screen
the past that we eat
I'll sit and listen
to abbreviated truth
my youth is sour
and the night is in blue

for your fame

living for the handshakes
living for the handshakes
Track Name: Dark Honey
another
mindless smile
a naked
arm in the dark
another
pointless success
drank dark honey
to save myself

another
heavy pillow
a sound:
fears for the ears
another
drowning friend
drank dark honey
to save myself
Track Name: Autumn Leaves
the autumn leaves
in green and yellow
are you here to stay
or are you just
another fellow?

one step back
it's ever so dark
all these cracks
under my feet
Track Name: Little Lord Of Forests
of all the years we've been waiting for this
this is brighter than ever
we've been sleeping under rocks
we've been waiting for a sign
all for the little lord of forests

of all the tales we hear
nothing's been as clear
it is swimming through the desert
it is creeping over hills
all for the little lord of forests

with all the rules I know
I will save myself
I am feeding him my eyes
I am keeping my mouth shut
Track Name: Chromosome
tell me how I'm tied together
by strings of ragdoll care

such a shame:
the boy you lost
might be swimming
through the noise

it is written on the walls
on every step of stair

such a shame:
the boy you lost
makes you search
until he's gone
for real
Track Name: Scarecrow, Sunmilk
there are no branches
in the woods near my house
they're snakes down the river
in the orange mornings
wild dogs are waking up
and the hunter's knife is sobbing
scarecrow, sunmilk
it's the summer you were born

will you meet me by the lake?
can you feel my head ache?

it's an illusion
and I beg it will eat the truth

there are no branches
in the woods I call my home
scarecrow, sunmilk
it's the summer you were born
Track Name: Tigers
we went dancing
through the abbatoir
cut the night in half
to share it
stories shape our teeth
and we know how to taste
the longer we must wait
the better

wear one pair of eyes
and shut out the noise
waltzing with the ghosts
we're crippled
stories shape our teeth
and we know how to taste

cities drowning
I'll meet you when Oslo is in pieces

and I fold it open
to see what's left:
it's better just
to make it up
Track Name: Mellow
when I realize
the world, with all its names
is creeping up behind me
living for the handshakes

when I realize
I've been running for a day
with my feet from hell
living for the handshakes

when I realize
I'm a hollow head
like a stranger in reverse
living for the handshakes
