Track Name: My Fear
(My fear)
I don’t want to die
(hold them closer)
I still don’t know how to love
(love them better)

Blood of mine

(My fear)
I still don’t trust the
(I am my body)
old, sad machine of the self
(Blood and meat)

Blood is gone

(My pain)
No one needs to love me
Earth itself will hold me
Earth itself
Track Name: Womb
I love the world
but the world does not
care about skin
I’m the only great force
that can protect me
(Out of my mouth spills)

Sea
Salt
Teeth
I want to be safe from harm

What does her body look like now
(I need my mother’s belly now)
I need to feel my family’s womb
That black, black, black shell
That love

Her teeth are in my mouth can’t you tell
Teeth
Track Name: The Drooling Mouth
All I want is love
The black pupil of love
The sad insect of love
The drooling mouth of love
Love
The watery world
(It’s hard to go on)

All I want is love
The choking light of love
The warm wet cunt of love
The dripping milk of love
Love
The watery world
(It’s hard to go on)

All I want is love
Why can’t I have love
(The dripping milk of love)
(The warm wet cunt of love)
Love
Track Name: Sacs of Teeth
The jaw line of my face,
it violently changes shape
The blackest sound

We are sacs of bone

There’s blood I saw the blood
I saw her bleed
There’s breath I saw the breath
I saw her breathe
My loss in sound

We are sacs of teeth

We are sacs of bone
We are sacs of teeth
We are sacs of blood
(Such soft skin)

We are bone
We are teeth
Track Name: Bereft Body
Bereft body
Fetal skin
Pink womb
New face
Wet blood
Fetal skin
Bereft body
(My mouth is my grandma)
(My teeth are my grandma)
(My blood is my grandma)

New, new, new face
Pink, pink, pink womb
Bereft, bereft, bereft body

(My mouth is my grandma)
(My teeth are my grandma)
(My blood is my grandma)
Track Name: Light
I want to make things with my hands
but I’m a fool
Never could forget
I can’t forget you

Hold back the light
It burns my eyes

I don’t want to believe
the things in my mind
but the mothers are throwing up
and everyone I know is gone
I stay right here
Everyone I love is gone
And I cannot move from here

Hold back the light
It burns my eyes

I want to be
with the ones who know me
I want to go
home
(Feel my power)
(Female power)
(Fear my power)
