reveal - signs of passing, released february 2003


with each new face
you might be mesmerized
digging in the dirt
you thought you'd leave alone
and in this place
you drop your best disguise
how your hungers have grown

maybe you wanted to marry
maybe you wanted to feel it
maybe you wanted to find your own way home
don't pretend that you won't pretend that you
want it less than you do
you're insatiable

pounding heart, serpent coil
watch her hips move like secret oil
centuries touched in flame
it burns inside me without a name

there's madness in each direction
but you can't hold still
this garden always looks a little different from before
the hunger of the hungriest is nothing
next to your cry for more

maybe you wanted to marry
maybe you wanted to feel it
maybe you wanted to find your own way home
don't pretend that you won't pretend that you
want it less than you do
you're insatiable

pounding heart, serpent coil
watch her hips move like secret oil
centuries touched in flame
it burns inside me without a name

when the reveal of your heart
in this life is not under your sway
and your fear of this spark
won't let it burn and light the way
and you're lost on the arc of return
then the colors i see in your heart
grow darker by turns

the chorus came first and the mixed metaphors came tumbling after. this most likely is at least partly about what the Faithful Reader thinks it's about.

includes a cameo from born-famous juli jadick (below). the mp3s also include a short rant from meb's ex-neighbor.
