The Body 02:20
the Lord is for my body my body is for the Lord
come Holy Spirit, come light of our hearts come giver of gifts, parent of the poor cleanse all that is filthy, water all that is parched straighten all that is crooked, redeem all that’s defiled bend all who are proud, heal all who are wounded and give grace to the trusting, virtue its reward joy to the mourning, faith like a child safety in the end, lasting peace within within, within, within, within, within
seen and unseen if there is nothing in between I'm lost I'm nonplussed surface leaves me nervous wheels swerving lines blurring on the bridge I cross same one I dream of jumping off patiently to eternity answers hardly qualify new life you sting my eyes now swing with both arms I need you with all that I can still it's not over still I'm no older you seem to be everywhere else you are the fumes that burn the whole house down if everything is meaningless illusions of exposure leaves erosion of the soil I'm turning over turning over run my will over and over
in my working in my playing these are the things that count in my surfing in my saving in my voting you wake me softly up you wake me softly up in my body in my eating in my clothing in my fucking these are the things that count in my failure in my waiting in my frailty you wake me softly up they compete every hour what is it I truly need I confuse growth and power this life of apology I want love I want love from all the things and all the wrong things feel like you just like you
Christ is risen from the dead trampling down death by death and to those in the tomb he has given new life
I dreamt of Passover in Heaven soup and gefilte fish breaking bread of course unleavened raising toasts with Manneschevitz at one corner sat six million the Holocaust amassed Mr. Hitler was guest of honor they were laughing at the past
Come 05:20
come my love
Sanctissima 04:23
o most holy, o most lowly sweetest virgin mother Mary o most holy, o most lowly sweetest virgin mother Mary beloved mother undefiled pray for us oh grace divine all was lost till Christ was born blessed joyful we adore glorious peace brings Christmas time angel throngs to meet thee on thy birth we greet thee laud and blame await thee hail to Christ, the son of God, our newborn king hail to Christ, the son of God, our newborn king o sanctissima, o piissima dulcis virgo maria mater amata, intemerata ora, ora pro nobis you and the spirit made one billions eat your son you and the spirit made one billions drink your son over, over, over, and over, and over again and again
beautiful savior, king of creation son of God and son of man thee will I cherish, thee will I honor light of my soul, my joy, my crown fair are the meadows fairer still the woodlands robed in flowers of blooming spring Jesus is fairer Jesus is purer who makes the woeful heart to sing fair is the sunshine fairer still the moonlight bright the sparkling stars on high Jesus shines brighter Jesus shines purer than all the angels in the sky
Pax 03:27
tell me something about you that I do not know tell me, tell me until I fall asleep don’t wake me till morning cause I want to sleep through the night for once please, won’t you give me some peace tonight


A redirection from our previous work, this ten-song studio album is predominantly constructed of synthesized instruments. Exploring themes of the body, self-worth, rest, and damnation.
