Lyrics

1. MUTAGEN

(Instrumental)




2. STAYS DEMON

The touch of your hand on my brow stays demons




3. INCUBATION/METAMORPHOSIS

Your fingers stretch webs across
My skin, entwine and enclose,
And wrap me within sticky
Strands of silk ‒ the cocoon
Of your flesh ‒ my incubation, metamorphosis
Beneath your hands, within your hands, as you spin
Your skein, shuttle my skin, shatter my spine
...And ...intoxicated ‒ toxic ‒
I burst out of the ends of your fingers
Like a thousand blind larvae...




4. FLOWERS OF FLESH

The scent of your skin like the taste
Of orchids in the back of my
Throat ‒ flowers of flesh
And the tickle of pollen, trickling down
...My throat, tickling down
My throat
