Rupert Irving “I am pregnant with rage” This has stayed with me since the first listen to this album. It’s sensitively heavy which seems like a good description when compared with the band’s name and the lyric quoted above. I love it!

Track Name: Hope A Softer Thought
There are some people in this world that want hurt you.
When they think of you in their mind they forget who you are, who you really are.
You can say you're upset but they wont hear you, you dont need reminding that you are nobody.
You dont need to think that their hate is truthful
You dont need to think that their hate is somehow more truthful.

I am pregnant with rage.
Track Name: Sounds Outside
I've been listening so long to the sounds outside that i think that they're here in my room.
I've been sleeping so long with the sounds outside that I think they're here in my dream.
Where we drive across America.
Track Name: Mother Rain
Where are the borders where I end and the rest begins?
I draw rivers in the dust and wait for water.
I can barely wait.
The man next door keeps handing me pictures in pieces
Handing me pictures until Ive built it.
And although you are in the same room you wont believe it.
I can barely wait.
Track Name: You Weren't So Kind
Before the last berries go brown
hold on the wedding bells are rust the trees are dribbling
and after you the senses did flee
and your fire a scream on a wire

When she opened her soul
minutes before
your hand, your hands, your wretched hands
sounds grim
we collapsed in fray

You weren't so kind

Your hands collapsed
after the wrath
timber to the ground
all so fast

dried red flecks
on a board of chess
is that it?
Now the mother she breathes

You weren't so kind.
Track Name: The Green Dream
In the end it was just like this
a man had passed away in the early hours
lying in a woman's arms
Inside the old oak bed frame

They were both dressed in long
coasts made of fields and hills
tailored patch work green on green
resting like Egon Shiele

In the beginning it was like this
people all moving so quick in the street
my mind is stuck on just one thing
did they all have the green dream

everywhere you have been
you have been everywhere

When else can you lay beside death
and for it to be alright

In the green dream.
Track Name: The Crow Flies, The Driver Crashes.
Hear the doves cry from the borders
olive branches burned for insulation
as the crow flies over fences
three white poppies in isolation

coldness seeps through sodden blankets
remembrance of the trenches inconvenient
but your wallet is full of money
boundaries of duty become apparent

There's no place
time of space
loud or quiet
driver crashes

As the crow flies the driver crashes
all the lives on edge now separated
broken rifles and cranes of paper
three red dots of the pax cultura

There's no place
time of space
loud or quiet
driver crashes

what would you do?

Hear the doves cry.
Track Name: Constant State
Bird beak break neck underwire
blue bird limbo sang a while
when will ugly be just fine
constant state of desire

a constant state of desire

falling down from fifty flights
ice, stone, hand bone holding tight

constant state of desire

sweating perfume weights the air
pulse of death flows through her hair

constant state of desire

Doctor, husband, passers by
shadow cast not recognised
wind swept voice to baby's cry
constant state of desire

a constant state of desire.
Track Name: Crystal
feeling not limited to a childhood memory
sitting in the long grass never ending days
it was now too
every moment seems to drift away in elastic time spacee

crystal freshness
hearing normal sounds people moving all around
like cool water on a baby's face
crystal freshness
on a baby's face

Looking up through the sky light at the peeking beech leaves
lorry reversing sounds the closest air
aeroplane comes into land
distant motorbike leads the way in a siren chase

crystal freshness
hearing normal sounds people moving all around
like cool water on a baby's face
crystal freshness
on a baby's face
Track Name: Feathers Brushing Steel
Here is my body
like a resting lake
a kind of universe
it doesnt mean to cheat
what's in my skull

different flight paths crossing in my skull
birds and planes go both ways in my skull
metal shells and fine bone under wings
feathers brushing steel

Here is my watch tower
always looking out over the land
into the nights dark wishing space
its not meant to be watching me

different flight paths crossing in my skull
metal shells and fine bone under wings
feathers brushing steel
