Stevie A.D. I think Void is my favorite just because it was the first song I heard and instantly knew I wanted more. The feel of the whole EP is so intimate and warm to me. And the singers' voice is so reassuring, soulful and comforting. Favorite track: Void.

Track Name: Void
i built up a wall so high,
it could withstand the march of seven times
and the final shout

i had this notion,
and from my tower you were no exception

mixed in blood and whole in purpose,
void of will and proposition

what a thrill it is to discover how you broke the pattern,
setting to fire all the timber in my castle
Track Name: I Don't Know
what i really meant to say is that your beauty blows my mind
and i'm kept up late at night thinking about you
what you really need to know is that i'm such a stupid mess,
caught between terror and arrest

oh, i don't know

what i'd really love to say is that i think we'd fit like glove in hand,
but you'd have to understand it's just a matter of opinion
what a funny thing to sing,
because in all reality only a fool would fall for me

oh, i don't know

maybe on a blue moon
maybe in my wildest dreams
that's it!
maybe while i'm asleep

but i must reiterate that i cannot fall asleep
and i'm stuck with counting sheep, thinking about you
Track Name: Skin And Tendon
in such a time, in such a place,
in a familiar hour
words in air, air and smoke,
over land and line

look at this passerby, there and unsuspected
who are you?
where will i be on this newfound day?

sweet communion
bread to break in order
skin and tendon
joining, moving in and out,
with me
and us
Track Name: Bone
be still my heart

hold on my love, because i'm not as fast as the rest of them

you are my flesh
and blood
and bone
and pulse
and breath
and sex
and love
