family photos my mother sent me part three (sounds like dirt xxxi)


i couldn't stop myself
i knew i'd do it again
but i could heal myself
if i could feel your skin
and if i comprehend, and this moment
i know we'll live again
and if i heal your wound
we will make love again
and now we're slipping through
this millennium
we should feel sorry for the people
and can i kiss your skin?
and there's hunger in the desert
and missiles in the sky
and every soul is interwoven
before the wrong or right
i know we'll live again
though it's just a feeling
i know we'll never end
like there was no beginning
i know it's cold tonight
i'll kiss your velvet skin
i know we'll never end
i'll keep you company


(swans killing for company from the great annihilator)

family photos my mother sent me part two (sounds like dirt xxx)


in my life the piano sings
brings me words that are not the strength of strings
fiery rain and ruby's cooling sun
now i see that my world has only begun
notes that roll on winds with swirling wings...
brings me words that are not the strength of strings
