Track Name: The Dream Is Us
Lying on the southern shore:
Stranger than it was before.
If I could only raise the dead,
I wouldn't after what you said.

Ooooh. You could have any boy in town
Oooh. I can see the kneeling down

But they won't begin to win...
"Not anymore"- I'm hollering
Now that I got the offer in.

You and me girl; the dream is us
You and me girl, until the dust
You and me girl, until the dust

In the cottage of my dreams
Runs an icy mountain stream
I hear you singing in the dark;
We'll float their on our human ark.

ooh ooh ooh oooh

You and me girl; the dream is us
You and me girl, until the dust
You and me girl, until the dust
Track Name: The Twin
Every time you slip away,
amidst the overhaul

ahhhh, the color red
in my eyeball

You thought I was nearly dead,
wandering in the mall

ahh the color blue,
on shoulders like a shawl

ahhhh

on autumn leaves I kissed you
with blades of grass round your neck
the glowing glass off a masterpiece craftsman
could never shine brighter than that
could never shine brighter than that

anyone, who shares a doubt..,.
I don't know where to begin.
I could take you back
when the sun was in my eyes;
I don't know how I got by.
I made it there, with a lesson in my hand:
I tripped on a rope made of sand.
Track Name: City Lights
Lights in the city
shine from the buildings and trees.
I hear the rain as it flows underground;
never a more naked sound.
You had your mind set on drinks and the chase:
grasping, delusional pace.

Somebody's got a hold of you
Somebody's got a...
You're dancing with a stranger.
Somebody's got a hold of you
Somebody's got a
You're in the arms of danger.

While you were out flouting about--
I was thinking: "The darkness could eat us alive."

I--- never saw that side of you.
But if I can make it, I know you'll make it too.
I--- see us on a balcony,
taking in the flowers and the view.
I--- know your life as been so hard--
I wish I could have been there from the start.
From the start....we should listen to our dreams with open hearts.

And in another dream, I saw you in a crystal beam- suspended in a light out of time.
I was half awake and breathing-- grounded in that lotus pose; sure that I could see your
face in mine.
I wish I could rise above it- human needs are like no other... a hundred thousand roots
growing in me.

Somebody's got a hold of me
Somebody's got a...
 I'm dancing with a stranger.
Somebody's got a hold of me
Somebody's got a
I'm in the arms of danger.

While you were out flouting about--
I was thinking: "The darkness could eat us alive."

I--- never saw that side of you.
But if I can make it, I know you'll make it too.
I--- see us on a balcony,
taking in the flowers and the view.
I--- know your life as been so hard--
I wish I could have been there from the start.
From the start....we should listen to our dreams with open hearts.
Track Name: Shades of Currency
It's high time
you come around I said
"oh my, what disgrace"

Ooooo, it's not enough to save the world
Ooooo, the pearl

Ahhh, The sun is shining down on you
Ahhh, the world is new

When it all stops making sense
and my memory is just the context:
Will the colors of tomorrow still blossom in my head
when all the shades of currency are dead?

And every time you come and go
and back and forth
and who you know?
"Uh oh, what disgrace."

Ooooo, it's not enough to say you will
Ooooo, the pills

Ahhh, The sun is shining down on you
Ahhh, the world is new

When it all stops making sense
and my memory is just the context:
Will the colors of tomorrow still blossom in my head
when all the shades of currency are dead?
when all the shades of currency are deaaaaaaaad.
Track Name: In the Picture
If you could see what I see in autumn leaves.
And wonder bout the ocean depths and honesty.
But time is what you make it- facts are on your sleeve.
And I don't know what to believe and rightfully.

Oh no, I don't know you anymore.
I take that back.
Oh no, baby won't you please come home
, I want you back.

In the picture, the pretty picture, I long to capture.
In the picture, the pretty picture, I long to capture.
Stop the picture, it's all a fiction:
frame by frame it lapse into my mind
frame by frame it lapse into my mind.

And all I want,
is a guarantee
that you want me,
the way I want you.

So you can hear me screaming out from you roof:
"It's not your science or your wealth that draws me to you!"
But Nietzsche said that "without art, we'd perish from the truth."
And now that God is in your heart you still want proof.

Oh no, I don't know you anymore.
, I take that back.
Oh no, baby won't you please come home
I want you back.

In the picture, the pretty picture, I long to capture.
In the picture, the pretty picture, I long to capture.
Stop the picture, it's all a fiction:
frame by frame it lapse into my mind
frame by frame it lapse into my mind.

And all I want,
is a guarantee
that you want me,
the way I want you.

For all time
For alllllll time
I want you in the picture
I want you in my picture tonight.
Track Name: Seven Years
Seven years in all I waited-
I never lived alone.
Hanging by that one last thread
nearly cut me to the bone.

I can't be your man, unless you understand what's left of me.

Never said that I was jaded,
I just can't go back home.
Isolated in my head and
chased down by a drone.

I can't be your man, unless you understand what's left of me.
I can't be your man, unless you understand what's left of me.

oooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooo

Won't you help me through the darkness?
I just can't understand.
You're held in place so perfectly
and hold the upper hand.

I can't be your man, unless you understand what's left of me.
I can't be your man, unless you understand what's left of me.

Walking by the river never seemed so old and gray
A lifespan in seven years culminates today.
And here I write:
Tomorrow will rise upon these fallen leaves.
Don't fail me now!

Such a lovely day
Such a lovely day
Such a lovely day.
Track Name: In the Garden
What a way to spend a summer's day:
Watch the east wind roll down to rubble bay.
Cultivate your hate in your shimmy shack
Push the knife into my back- day after...

Day after day- drown in my wake.
Watch you slip away.
yeah.

In the garden grove
a white angel rose.
Said "let the stone remain for every yesterday."

So the Psalms he made
and all the songs we played
were only dead refrains?

Throughout history
an epiphany.
Throughout history
and what it means to me.


And on another day
these two women came.
They saw a gardener
and he claimed, yeah he claimed:
"For the man you seek,
woke from eternal sleep...
up from the grave he rose."

Now some wonder, asunder.
I believe in the thunder
Track Name: Moment in the Sun
Summer clouds they pass by the cemetery.
Buried there, 24 thousand moments to spare.
Collectively, the human race isn't even conscious love.
Will Monday make a dent, in Tuesdays' rent?

I want a sunny day.
I want to kiss you in the rain.
Don't want to feel any pain
Don't want to feel any pain.

And the darkness comes,
like it always does..
You had a moment, a moment in the sun.
In the sun: moment in the sun.

A darkened sky and the sound of cathedral bells.
Fireflys: no moment is ordinary.
Heroically, I fail with the best of men...
and still you do a dance upon my fence.

I want a sunny day.
I want to kiss you in the rain.
Don't want to feel any pain
Don't want to feel any pain.

And the darkness comes,
like it always does.
You had a moment, a moment in the sun.
In the sun: moment in the sun.

etc etc.
