Track Name: 1. Love Poem I
I want you to look at me with throbbing eyes
I want to watch me through you
and feel your tears of adoration
construct this image like a nude
air brush the rough edges
feel you painful longing
for someone else that it seems you've always wanted
there is a paradise under these clothes
a fairy tale waiting to be opened
I want to show you the cover
and snatch the book away.
Track Name: 2. Love Poem XIII
I woke up sweating breathless.
She fleeting image.

I felt I had just barely escaped.
Laying there beside me
her eyelids twitched

sending me around to my sleep.

Itching aching I crossed the room

to calm myself in front of the mirror

like it's gonna make us feel better.

How can you dream of she?

Don't you know that I have to look her in the eyes?
There's an open door

the wind's too strong

if I don't act now it will sweep her away.

She stands, proud and lonely.
Track Name: 3. Love Poem VI
ah, now you see
that I'm something superior
I'll feed you
I'll dress you
I'll keep you never lonely
You look so angelic
with black tears on your cheeks
Your begging eyes
free my soul
I'll never let you go.
Track Name: 4. Love Poem III
to convince you
to convince you
to convince you
to convince you
to convince you
Track Name: 5. Love Poem XIV
I walked you to your door
I fumbled over doubt and projection
I smiled
said goodnight
and as I turned
you grabbed me and kissed me
