Track Name: On Love
When everything is shinin
Through your bright light eyes I
See them reflecting my fire
But, what are you afraid of?
Afraid to fall in love?
That something might sting you inside?

But loves a bird
With daggers in its feathers
And Kalil said it first
Nobodys said it better, I’d rather
Fly from the Earth
In the heart of your words
Than be tethered to the ground by my fear

Cause, it can get lonely out there
If you don’t, know know know nobody out there
No one to make simple conversation
And if you let me baby
Maybe maybe we can make it maybe but
But I understand your hesitation

Cause it’s much too easy to pass
Into the seasonless world
Where you will laugh but not all your laughter
And cry, but not all your tears
Oh, make it worse
Before you make it better and just
Make sure you leave me with a feather
So I may breathe in your
Words Forever
I promise I’ll leave the ground

Cause, it can get lonely out there
If you don’t, know know know nobody out there
No one to make simple conversation
And if you let me baby
Maybe maybe we can make it maybe but
But I understand your situation
Track Name: Talk Talk Talk
Well its, cold outside baby, you ain’t lyin
And I got, warmth inside but I’m not tryin
No no no, no no no, no no

To let you in, again
Cause the last time we tried this
I think we both know
How it ended, how it ended

Oh you
You Talk too much
And you, you don’t think enough
No no no, no
How will I figure out a way out?
A way out, of this situation?

Well its, been a long winter here my dear
And its been many seasons since I’ve felt you near
Oh I’ve suffered, impasses in my vision
And it seems to be getting hard
When it comes to my position in this
Strange path
No I can’t, make make my way back
No no not yet
I’m not forgiven
There’s things I gotta do with these gifts that I’ve been given

Oh and you talk too much
And you, you don’t think enough
No no, no
How will I figure out a way out?
A way out, of this situation?
Track Name: Pitch Black
Well it’s pitch black and I’m out on the window ledge
Ain’t nobody got a gun to my head
And I see your eyes, callin me from the back of the room
Askin me “what am I to do?”
I’ve got no answer for you baby

But you gotta
Break down and love me
You gotta do, somethin to prove
You didn’t men all those things that you said
And if you, make me believe
That you won’t leave again
How can I say, how can I say
I’m not a foolish man?

You let me talk you down
I let the sounds you make, drown me out
Let your voice become my own
But you won’t last for long
You’re nothin but smoke and you’ll soon be gone
My shadow is pacing the floor
Anticapating the spaces you’ll leave when you go if you don’t

Break down and love me
You gotta do, somethin to prove
You didn’t men all those things that you said
And if you, make me believe
That you won’t leave again
How can I say, how can I say
I’m not a foolish man?

But my love, is, strong
Track Name: Highway 1
Makin good time tracin these blue lines
That blend into the sand
A pretty girl drives us down the sandy miles
I think I’ll take her by the hand

And my heart it roams through the mountains
Down rivere valleys to the sea
Just hope that I could tell ya darlin
Ain’t no place that I’d rather be

Catch me in the landslide of your Dandilion dress
And your Honeysuckle smile
Baby I got time to let the roll unwind
Lets take pictures of each other’s eyes

I’ve spent my time countin pages
In the basement libraries
But all of them they don’t mean nothin
When you’re lyin next to me

Ba ba ba ba ba ba babababa
Ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba babababa
Ba ba ba ba ba
Track Name: Stealing Light
The lights went out and we faced our fears
Made some space for the things that are real

So I’m just waitin for some conversation
The rest are prayin for a new situation
In the night the stars will seem so clear
And close to us

All the T.V. rooms left cold and quiet
We’ll search the cabinets underneath the stairs
Light the candles and set the tables
Bring the board games back from the years gone by
Before these electric wires

I had a dream we were gathered under the new moon
And I had a beer with my brothers and my sisters
Me and my neighbors knew we’d be gone soon
So we talk talk talk talk talk about this
New Moon
Track Name: Buy The Ticket
We used to be settlers waging war
On these Eastern winters
We used to be carpenters
Raising our our homes from the timbers
We used to monuments to the ones we loved
Now the tallest things are skyscrapers

But what changed?
Why have we become so afraid?

So file into your people carriers and
Move small distances across the Earth
These machines were made for adventure
Where will you take them

Well you’ll drive your car to work
But the freeway’s busy, take the train
Now the railway stations contain
No adventurers, just business travellers
And the shapes we make
Are quickly changin into circles
You’re always late
Time’s chasin you like an escaped criminal

So just buy the ticket she said
And you’ll feel so much better
Track Name: pocketbookeyeshine
Pocketbookeyeshine
Swallows marinetime
Follow pills and plastic
Along the coastline
The skylit melody of
Time strewn visualy a
Cross the everything
Of what we used to love

Then we danced
Till we were sand
And settled down
Into a perfect plan

We walked
And we waved
And left our bodies behind in the fray
Till we awoke so
Very old
In the rain

Scaled moral mention
Of near indetection
With no indiscretion we bleed
Right through the seams
Minor recourse back in
To the wood horse
We’re right outside the front door
And we’re nicely saying please

So we hope
We won’t offend
We just don’t wanna live inside
Your tiny head
We’ll make
Our escape
In the end
