song 4

a.
Two, twins. Bryan
Original: Landstuhl. Binary, Germany
Let him be two, two, two

Defunct gravity
Plural heart, playing every drum part, he is up there. There
If you ever came from Germany then
You came to be with me

One, two. The two tattoo, quality on parade.
Property
Is holy
When held in common
How, young man, may we hold you?
Wherever there is you, there is two, there is two

b.
The brain is one way around the world
And life is everywhere around the world
And world is the word for the word we live
Come around, come around to what I know

“To know” breaks out to the “two-knot,” one and one.
What I may hold and what I may not,
Taken but not away
May here in heart be here in fact
Drum match drum, beating down the line
What I lack and what I have, both are mine
One, two. The two tattoo, quality on parade.
Property
Is holy
When held in common
How, young man, may we hold you?
Wherever there is you, there is two, there is two

c.
Pronounce “Ryan”
The “Emily” is silent
Two, two, two

Take nothing away from what was taken away,
His heaven is in tact
May here in heart be here in fact
Move
A few inches off the ground.
Defunct gravity
If you ever came from Germany
You came to be with me

How, young man, may we hold you?
Wherever there is you, there is two, there is two

d.
What does silence do for sound when he’s born
Hope
Emily, third twin, Bryan-Ryan
The birth of silence
Is holy
When held in common

How may we hold you?
Wherever there are two there are three
Silence, then whatever is left is you and me

e.
Psy, bio, four point oh. English. Mouth of gold.
Floors unsold
Move
Two inches off the ground
Two, twins.
Original: Landstuhl. Binary, Germany
Plural heart, playing every drum part, he is up there. There
Let him be two, two, two

The brain’s a way around the world
And life is everywhere else
The world is word minus word
A null expense
Two is sometimes none
You are one in whom we
Hope
Come around, come around
What I know: Grace
Is not property

f.
Born to silence so perfect,
No one sells floors anymore
A yard off the ground
And for you we live in hope
Emily, third twin, Bryan, Ryan
Each a third of silence
Silence
Is holy
When held in common
How may we hold you?
Mutually.

g.
Go with
Be with
Silence
Silence, then whatever’s left of you is me
Say “Ryan”
Pronounce “Emily”
May here in heart be here in fact
Move
A few inches off the ground.
Defunct gravity
If you ever came from Germany
You came to be with me
How, young man, may we hold you?
Wherever there is me there is you, there are two

h.
Two, two, two
Take nothing away from what was taken away,
Heaven, in tact
Binary
Let him be two, two, two
Plural heart, playing every drum part, he is up there. There
Defunct gravity
If you ever came from Germany then
You came to be with me
One, two. The two tattoo, quality on parade.
Property
Is holy
When held in common
How, young man, may we hold you?
Wherever there is you, there is two, there is two
Wherever there are two there are three
Where you were, where you are, and what I see

prime
Let him be two, two, two
Plural heart, playing every drum part,
He is up there. There

One, two. The two tattoo, quality on parade.
Property
Is holy
When held in common
How, young man, may we hold you?
Wherever there is you, there is two, there is two

Take slack from the “two-knot,” one and one.
What I may hold and what I may not,
Taken but not away
His heaven is in tact
May here in heart be here in fact
Move
A few inches off the ground.
Defunct gravity
If you ever came from Germany
You came to be with me

Pronounce “Ryan”
The “Emily” is silent
Two, two, two

How, young man, may we hold you?
Wherever there is me there is you, there are two
Wherever there are two there are three
Silence, then whatever is left is you and me

Be with me
I am with you
