Track Name: (halfsleeper)
it's true of all the people: inside there's good & evil. o the agony... you want comforting; I want suffering-- the pain of discipline or regret. i travail and i prevail, but you regress. please repent, halfsleeper . please repent!
Track Name: the point
lookin about, or rather, lookin within for some substance, i don't know what. the bosom's core burns, the human heart yearns for meaning, the point, they don't know yet. in a mirror in an enigma. icy black silence: peace for a mind so muddled & inwardly troubled from the alter to the mire.not the cloud in temple, the fire behind the curtain. purge me from my self. dwell in me o Spirit; i dwell in You sweet Zion. Use whatever's left of me. in a mirror in an enigma. i see white waters overflowing life from my belly, nourishment for a disannulled soul, the fruits of which satiate me. TAKE ME TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN.
Track Name: logos
and waking life is yet a harrowing comedy
each miserable mote in the eye of infinity
each of us dying stars obscured by the light of eternity
O HEARTLESS MINDS; O MINDLESS HEARTS
jaded to naught. I am reduced to poetry
drowsy halfsleeper in the pursuit of a fantasy
searching for truth in dark cloudy daydreams
every tickling thought: a polluted lucid memory
every day's deja vu with a few minor epiphanies
O LINE BY LINE; O LIE UPON LIE
three eyes wide, witness to bleak reality
in every pair of sullen eyes: mirror image of the enemy

when hope is lost in the chaos
dark mental dross// thick moral fog
His thread of mind pervades it all
a ray of light, the grace of God

the lust of the eyes, and flesh, and pride of life
VANITY OF VANITIES, no value but the price is high
the reaping of the whirlwind is recompensed by a heart contrite
THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME; THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HELL
Persecuted. Prosecuted. Executed. Rebuked. Reproached. Maligned.
such are the fruits of provoking worldlings proving wise
may it come to pass the pass on outsourcing insight
going against nature is human nature in spite of design
"just smile n wave. play the game, celebrate artifice"
"alight alright ALRIGHT Alright ALRIGHT ALRIGHT"
but one prophetic critic of the wanton zeitgeist
said "i believe in one God and His son, Jesus Christ"

when hope is lost in the chaos
dark mental dross// thick moral fog
His thread of mind pervades it all
a ray of light, the grace of God
when hope is lost in the chaos
dark mental dross// thick moral fog
His thread of mind pervades it all
a ray of light, the grace of God
a ray of light, the grace of God
a ray of light, the grace of God
Track Name: 777
O LORD, my strength, my song!
what am i doin wrong
im praying im fasting
now, im crying out:
what do you want from me
father, speak to me
i am listening

Thy word i do harken for
hanker after more & more
You are patient with me so i am waiting still
what is your will for me
Abba lead the way
i will cleave unto Thee

is this a test or a testament
a cote or a covenant
I do trust You to be my nourishment
teach me to turn my actions into sacraments
only You have what I need and I am desperate

O LORD, your love broke through!
the sluice gates of truth
solemnly, sovereignly, You answer me
in spite of iniquities
i am made whole
by your love and mercy

Thy word is a humbling sign
just and wise & just in time ;)
likewise in time You reveal to me
the secrets and mysteries
the warfare in worship
and power in purity

hallelujah
HALLELUJAH
Track Name: lifer
too mortal in nature:
to ripen, to rotten
from the womb unto the tomb
to lose, and so, neglect
time for a time
somewise sublime
obsessions
behaviours
endeavours
caprice
capers
vain spirits vexed and
waxed desolate
unto judgement (final judgment)
what a life! who will survive her?
the blood is on my hands and there is fire in my palms
let me sing psalms for the rest of my life
