Track Name: Creator
oh clarity, come to me in my sleep
I will not repeat the same thing
oh symbols and potions
magic and weaponry
all these things are coming to me
and I stand ready
the body of christ
and the blood of the ancients
all these things are coming to me
Track Name: The First Spell
got to measure up the june bugs laughing
got to measure up those animal eyes
oh you got to measure up
this hate you’re holding
is terribly 80s
now whose in favor?

relive the summer outside of indiana
the tulip we took inside is growing over
see how the people here are always starting something
the moon is a criminal, vile, interrupted

got to measure up your risky business
got to measure up those animal eyes
oh you got to measure up
I ain’t the one laughing
my body isn’t holy
and i hear we’re hated

are you listening?
are you listening?
you see right through me
so are you listening?
Track Name: Ora Child/Real Dreams
i try to keep you alive by shifting patterns so you won’t find
everybody’s a pawn after all
there’s a separation that’s keeping me fixed
tied to the binds right round my wrist
neurotic pneumonia
I give myself what i need
I have best intentions & real dreams

it’s fun when you’re having it
it’s fun when you want it
but please don’t go
please don’t laugh
I endure this for you
