This is a batch of songs I made while working on a new LP. They didn't fit with the LP but I liked them as their own collection, so here it is

Track Name: Wishing Bone
w in my eyes wishing bone
obstacle in my throat and i can't come home
i gotta let you know wishing bone
im watching you from the wings, better make it glow

assets in the fire, i could spend a long time running out

how do we make you try wishing bone
nobody's face stays dry on the telephone
how do we let you know wishing bone
nobody eats tonight if you let us down

assets in the fire, i could spend a long time running out
Track Name: Time Waits Patient
held to the light under strict observation its dry, brittle and thin
forcing your hand when it speeds up the tempo you try, flail in the wind

time waits patient stepping on the outskirts
twisting everything i know
i faded, playing off the back foot
masking anything i show

but you sleep and you call out the names of those you know
they dont play on your team
it feels fine in the day when you hear the things they say
they become an antique

time waits patient stepping on the outskirts
twisting everything i know
i faded, playing off the back foot
masking anything i show
Track Name: Twist
i did recall
waiting after dark in someones exit line
teasing out the feeling youre just twisting on the vine
holding out for something down the line

did my hands
waver as they indicate those big ideas
punctures such a hole inside that feeling i was right
feeling i was saying something real

digging in my pockets, holding up the traffic
and im clogging up the air
voice comes round the corner asking "dont you have a care
dont you see the writing on the wall"

this one's in a tailspin
that one pulls a picture of a dying family tree
asks for my opinion i just stare at the TV
no ones getting answers out of me
Track Name: Blue Kite
you go running out of sight
and picking apart what you had in your mind
well i dont think ill cross any rivers no more and i dont think ill climb any mountains no more

made it clear and drew a line, but i used to run when i made it too fine
now i dont think ill cross any rivers no more
i dont think ill climb any mountains no more

broke in the backbone, somebody get one
ive been throwing you a line
im gonna pull it back like the rest have
then we'll see if you can fly

when my vision goes fogging up
greyscale blots are blurring out what you are
and i picture the place as i saw it before
i wanna see the place how i saw it before

holding an unassembled blue kite
i tear it up and
pitch it to the dark
head back to the car
meet my friends for lunch, we are all so

broke in the backbone, somebody get one
ive been throwing you a line
im gonna pull it back like the rest have
then we'll see if you can fly
