Track Name: Is This Soul Music?
NOTE FORMED
SENTENCE SPLIT
A CARELESS WALZ FOR YOUR EARS
A BEAT FIXED
IS THIS SOUL MUSIC?
WHAT SONG BORN TO YOUR HEART
INTRINSIC?
WHAT WILL RISE FROM YOUR BELLY THROUGH PARTED LIPS? WHAT IS SOUL MUSIC?

HERE IS THE SKIN THAT SHOWS
HERE IS THE FLESH AND BONE
HERE IS THE BLOOD THAT FLOWS
IS THAT ALL THERE IS?
HERE IS THE SKIN THAT SHOWS
HERE IS THE FLESH AND BONE
HOW DOES THAT OLD SONG GO
IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

IS THERE A WORD FOR YOUR TRUTH
THAT YOU CAN'T SPEAK FOR VIOLENCE?
IS THERE HEART IN A LINE
THAT YOU DON'T FIND IN SILENCE?
IS THERE SOUL MUSIC?
IS THERE SOUL MUSIC?
WHAT IS SOUL MUSIC?
WHAT IS SOUL MUSIC?
IS THIS SOUL MUSIC?
IS THIS SOUL MUSIC?
Track Name: Present Perfect
IT'S AN INBREATH, A FEELING
AN OPEN MOUTH SPEAKING
PRESENT PERFECT
(GOT) A BLACK SHIRT, COVERED FEET
A HAIR CUT, A HEART BEAT
PRESENT PERFECT NOW
IT MIGHT STOP, I MIGHT GO
YOU MIGHT DIE TOMORROW
BUT PRESENT PERFECT NOW
FUTURE FEAR FOR FUTURE DEATH
FUTURE STYLES AND CONCEPTS
A FORM GUESSED INCOMPLETE
HISTORY REPEATS
THERE'S NO THEN, NO NEXT
NO THOUGHTS OR CONTEXT
PRESENT PERFECT NOW
THE FACE THAT’S OVER THERE
NORMAL GLANCE, ABNORMAL STARE
OUT OF TOUCH, EYES, EARS
HANDS MOVE AND FINGERS
THINKING ABOUT
WHAT IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE WITHOUT
PRESENT PERFECT
EVERYTHING IS REFLEX
ITS AN INSTINCT NOT AN INDEX,
NO FORMER LOVE, FORMER ROOMS
FORMER TIES RENEWED
CUT THE CHORD CHOOSE THE NEXT
TIME TO SLEEP OR CONFESS
TIME TO LOSE, TIME TO MAKE
IT’S IS HARD TO ARTICULATE
THINKIN ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE SAID AND DONE
THINKIN ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT MIGHT NEVER COME
THINKIN ABOUT A SITUATION OUT OF CONTEXT
THINKIN ABOUT THE WORD THAT SHOULD COME NEXT
THINKIN ABOUT LAST NIGHTS' TELEVISION SHOW
MAKIN LISTS OF THE THINGS THAT YOU DON’T KNOW
THINKIN ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT MIGHT GO WRONG
THINKIN ABOUT THE PREPOSITIONS IN A LOVE SONG
THINKIN ABOUT ALL THE THINGS TO KEEP WELL HID
THINKIN ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU NEVER DID
THINKIN ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT MAKE NO SENSE
THINKIN ABOUT CORRUPTION IN THE GOVERNMENT
Track Name: Three Fixed Movements
THREE FIXED MOVEMENTS
FORM AS CONTENT
OF WHICH THIS A PART
FROM WHICH THIS IS APART

THESE WORDS SPOKEN
THESE WEIGHTLESS TOKENS
BEAR WITNESS TO MY HEART
BEAR WITNESS TO MY HEART (BEAT)

ALL IS UNION
AND DISSOLUTION
OF WHICH YOU ARE A PART
FROM WHICH YOU ARE APART

THREE FIXED MOVEMENTS
4.06
Track Name: Air Itself
FASTEN A KNOT
IN A CHAIN OF COMMAND
AUGUR A NEW WORLD
WRITTEN BY HAND
TAKE OUT THE PAGE
ERASE WHAT’S COMPLETE
SMOTHER ALL TRACE
WITH APOSTROPHIES

OF AIR ITSELF
OF AIR ITSELF
OF AIR ITSELF
AND NOTHING MORE

I PLAY THIS GUITAR
LIKE IT’S A PHYSICAL HOAX
AMBUSH THE MASTERPIECE
WITH ANOTHER BUM NOTE
BECAUSE WORK WILL CONFESS
WHATEVER IT IS LESS
EVEN LOVE IT IS CRUSHED
BY INEFFABLE LUST

FOR AIR ITESLF
AIR ITSELF
IT IS AIR ITSELF
AND THE HEART IT CALLS

FOR AIR ITSELF
FOR AIR ITSELF
IS IT AIR ITSELF
THAT MAKES MY SINGING SO?

AND YOU KNOW NOT WHY
YOU KNOW NOT WHY
YOU KNOW NOT WHY
OR WHAT THIS SINGING IS FOR

IS IT FOR AIR ITSELF
FOR AIR ITSELF
IT IS AIR ITSELF
AND YOU KNOW NOT WHY
