"Least Important" - Poetry Album?
#1
Verse 1
Titanic eyes and low moon rising
A tidal escapade rippled into nothing
We’re history with no architecture
Only your guilt will remember
It takes a heart to send out tremors
A skilled head to avoid endeavors


Pre-Chorus
What was unresolved in the first place?
Just a feeling to still understate
Truth unaware, dare to play?
False hope is my only shame


Chorus
Consciously I’m so devoted
Slipping in a head case vortex
Discovering what is least important
Are all the fears I have avoided


Verse 2
I’m nostalgic to capture my magic
Miracles when my midnight's tragic
The hours take longer than fathomed
But what’s divine must always happen
Self-sabotage to strip real passion
I allow myself lifetimes of lavish


Pre-Chorus
What was unresolved in the first place?
Just a feeling to still understate
Truth unaware, dare to play?
False hope is my only shame


Chorus
Consciously I’m so devoted
Slipping in a head case vortex
Discovering what is least important
Are all the fears I have avoided


Bridge
My intuition is suspicious
This is the twin I have envisioned  
It was written in my soul will
I mated with the moment I came here


Pre-Chorus
What was unresolved in the first place?
Just a feeling to still understate
Truth unaware, dare to play?
False hope is my only shame


Chorus
Consciously I’m so devoted
Slipping in a head case vortex
Discovering what is least important
Are all the fears I have avoided

Why is everyone so ready to think the worst is over?

"Titanic eyes" is a really creative image to paint, as is "low moon rising" in terms of the astrology.
Not sure about the "we're history with no architecture" line though, as it confuses me. 
"only your guilt will remember" is a great line though.

"what was unresolved in the first place?" feels like another great image for a song, I think you could go farther with this
as it captures the vague descriptions you often see in tarots. Leaving you wondering things such as this.
I also love the line "consciously i'm so devoted", because it leads you to the thought that maybe subconsciously you don't want
what you think you want. This is confirmed with the "discovering what is least important are all the fears i have avoided"

The first two lines feel like a very taylor-ish line, especially "miracles when my midnight's tragic." I like the verse here a lot, though the "lavish" feels
a bit stiff as a word choice to me randomly.

"my intuition is suspicious" is great, I feel like you could push this farther with another stanza of the bridge with slightly changed. (maybe "my intervention is subconscious. This is the twin I have envisioned." etc. '

OVERALL: The song is really strong and I like the imagery and it has a lot of standout lines. I think with some tightening it'd be very strong tied together.

Is there anything better than a natural disaster? 
The panic, the people lost in the streets. It`s like picking fruit off the vine.
