The dirt and the brush they teach me how to move you The dirt and the branch they teach me how to move you A matter of trees the forest the breeze they move you The dirt and the birds they teach us how to move I go to the store I know what I want It’s easy to open the door but to say what I need I can’t say I know what I want but not what I need You’re on me Sick from the start I need a new heart It’s here Sharing a myth when we were real young I tell you a secret in a private song Under the sky it’s real in my mind Rocks are fossils are bones Rocks are fossils are bones Rocks are fossils are Confusion begins illusion extends around you To play in the dirt a primal aversion to you I figure it out it’s real what we felt I'm on you Sick from the start I need a new heart It’s here

Here I am on my back Not a woman or a man You believe what you see It’s not hard to understand Hands are clues for your eyes This was in the master plan Here we are You can’t tell I’m a woman and a man I’m below and you see me fighting It’s now true you accept all the things I change in you You never ask me what I am You don’t care You never ask me what I am You don’t care Here we are Now we know Accusation is a crime Moving close take it slow to a state we can’t command We are here not for long This was in the master plan Here I am Now you know I’m a woman and a man In your dreams and you see me fighting It’s now true you accept all the things I change in you You never ask me what I am You don’t care You never ask me what I am You don’t care And when the people turn and stare I can’t care You never seem to be aware You don’t care

Ode 03:49
We started something Something you wanted Something that never happens Never good reasons made it too easy For something to really happen After the last time knowing the first time You leave the mark of a stranger I wanted something now you’re informing All of my actions and visions You started something Something I wanted Something that never happens Never good reasons made it too easy For something to really happen After the last time knowing the first time I prove the touch of a stranger I wanted something now you are haunting All of my actions and visions I’m falling in the maze again The night she saw you stained in red I gave too much I know it’s true There’s no room in my house for you The wilderness surrounds my bed I see you from above she says So what’s the point of love it’s true There’s no room In my heart for you Still we see our bodies are not breaking down Nothing’s changed a sleepwalk in slow motion Prepare yourself when actions fade My words are falling off this page Prophetic gaze a day of fire You cannot prove I’m not a liar She sees you from above she says The wilderness surrounds my bed I gave too much I know it’s true There’s no room in my house for you Still we see our bodies are not breaking down Nothing’s changed a sleepwalk in slow motion

Last thing she said was hold onto your heart I know it’s not easy It happens with frequency One comes along and fractures the rhythm in you So I sing What’s most sacred Visions of you and me Arm and arm dancing I’m not with you Only in scenes of us arm and arm dancing Last time I saw you You kiss me goodbye Violent romantics are always the first to lose We were just fisherman who never learn how to swim So you sing What’s the point of losing our visions of Arm and arm dancing I’m not with you Other than dreams of us arm and arm dancing Absence demands a lot of your heart Yet in this darkness I see you so clearly Just difficult telling the difference in faces and words Now I sing I can’t see you other than visions of Arm and arm dancing I’m not with you Only in scenes of us arm and arm dancing

Equation 04:46
The tree of poisoned fruit you said Was just a myth to get us into motion A golden bite of caution Two bodies crash so violently They fracture stars of fantasies so fixed in space A constellation unafraid Truth was never part of this equation: you and me You let my world inside of yours The field emits a silent space of passion A novelty attraction Arriving at your door last night You’re on the floor You say please do not look at me But I’m afraid of all I see I know I was not the one to rescue you from me The tree of poisoned fruit you said Was just a myth to get us into motion A golden bite of caution Arriving at your door last night You’re on the floor You say please do not look at me But I’m afraid of all I see Truth was never part of this equation: you and me

Autoportrait 02:28
They are just animals in your head These things can talk I must confess They show some signs of life A predator and prey The pills are slow in wearing off I draw your profile on my thigh I channel you inside my mind You never turn to gray you say The static is not television I’m born with two tongues in my mouth A nation cuts one off in spite A halo hangs above her wrist The dance floor a relic from your past These songs are paintings on my wall They capture spirits big and tall They show some signs of life a predator And pray the pills are slow in wearing off The static is not television

MUSIC VIDEO OF "Hermaphrodite" BY MARIE LOSIER:

"Marisol Limon- is that a real name? Impossible. But I really hope it is. She’s a Brooklyn-based artist that put out an album called Autoportrait that sounds a little like Regina Spektor, but a little more calm- less animated. The warming sound of piano keys and violins are pretty much perfect for this Sunday. She’s also a spectacular illustrator/artist- check out her stuff here: mlimonmartinezart.com
