Track Name: Howl
I was just a fox hunting on my own
You were a wolf
In a pack you would roam
We were a tree
Spring and summer a beautiful sight
You held tight to this leaf, but fall came on quickly
And you left it to die


I wish I was a bear
So I could sleep it all away
But I'm just a fish
Thoughts swimming night and day
I wish I was a man so I could just forget
But my mind is a vault
Oh, I am an elephant


Sometimes I feel like my mind is small
But my heart is large and it carries all
Sometimes my will is so small
But my hear is large and it'll carry it all

And it aches
For you
Track Name: Tarantula
Little apricot
Looked so sweet, but it's not
And it lured me here for these wasps
To lay their eggs inside me
Now I'm dying

Sweet little bee
Come cuddle up inside me
And pollenate my ears with your words
For it's been far too long since I've bloomed
And I'm dying

Under a blood red moon that is waxing
I sit and I lick all my wounds
You start dancing

Spilling of blood
Showers of dirt (keep dancing)
Forget all the bitterness leave all the hurt
Keep dancing

Keep me
Keep me dancing
