Track Name: That Texture
All in time (repeated)
Hard of hearing
Depth of feeling (repeated)

Depth of fear

All in 3 years!
Cannot describe
The flatness, the outline
I'm in here! I'm in here!
This isn't precise
That texture, these confines

Close to impossible
No comfort at all
Track Name: Carole
Mother, hold me

As far as my eyes see

Your features reliably
Focused, holy

Mother, you'll find me
In ill health
In drudgery
I tried Carole, trust me
To be a cog
To be free

You showed me
Structured society
On marriage, I'm losing sleep
No willing capacity

Hold me, as far as my eyes see
Your features reliably
Focused, holy
Track Name: Soft Warm Hands
You've got a lot of love to go round
Strangely conceited
You've got a lot of love to go round
I nearly believed in..
but I can't just sit here and what you repeat it
I've been doing this for seven years
Oh darling, believe me
You've been around a while
and I can't just sit here and watch you repeat it

A stranger to yourself
Hold on and be held

You've got a lot of love to go round
And you're barely succeeding
You've got a lot of love going round
I nearly believed in
Your soft, warm hands
I felt it
Darling, believe me!
Soft, warm hands..

but I can't just sit here and watch you repeat it.
I've been doing this for seven years!
And you're barely succeeding!
You writhe around all wild..
And I can't just sit here and watch you repeat it!
Track Name: Real Lives
From the outside
Real Lives (repeated)

And their affinities...

At the risk of feeling
This positive centre - ing
Oh, it's useless, I see

That man is back.. (repeated)
Track Name: Normal
Without hesitation
A little more intense
Put yourself before
The other person

Peak and release
Do as you please

Change in itself
In this body!

When I made this bed
It was for sleeping in
You'll lay down til then..

Hetromonogomy
Meant for a girl like me
I'm normal
I'm boundaried
Change in itself
In this body!
When I made this bed
It was for sleeping in
You'll lay down til then
Blackout, tight
Change it yourself!
Pull in four sides
You'll lay down til then
