1.
Feelings, thoughts, dreams and counter thoughts In and out of style Seasons change and people get strange In the courtroom of your mouth you put all tongues on trial And it goes like so In your ghost like soul I didn’t speak the language I held no currency We evolved From the buzzing, teletype static Of syndicated programming in our prefrontal cortexes To the limitless, vast ocean Of diptychs and triptychs In cascading sheets of Memory, Desire and Information And it goes like so In your ghost like soul
2.
Shut the lights off when you go Turn my mind down, make it slow And I don't know if I want to be free From this prison of delight And the sign in the window says hello In a language that nobody’s ever known Let me know if I’m the one you wanna see Tonight Lie beside me, rest your head Make me feel the words you said All I want is for you to be real And let me heal inside your light And the sign in the window says hello In a language that nobody’s ever known Let me know if I’m the one you wanna see Tonight

I never meant to do you wrong I’m only living through this song I know you never meant to do me harm I ignored the signs when I was warned And if I don’t have the sense to turn and walk away Take a look around at all the carnage in your face Take a look around at all the phantoms in your soul We live inside of a dream If you let me in I’ll protect your heart Turn lead to gold I live inside of your thighs Just to make you cum And avert your gaze from The weeping souls Your ghost it haunts me every day It hurts my heart but that’s okay All these desires that linger on Burn them with fire then I’ll be gone And if I don't have the sense to turn and walk away Take a look around at all the carnage in your face Take a look around at all the madness in your soul Take a look around at all the carnage in your face We live inside of a dream If you let me in I’ll protect your heart Turn lead to gold I live inside of your thighs Just to make you cum And avert your gaze from The weeping souls on lost parade A wind that never blows Whatever’s in the way Upon the open road The bitter tears of ever-present doubt Let it all be over We live inside of a dream If you let me in I’ll protect your heart Turn lead to gold I live inside of your thighs Just to make you cum And avert your gaze from The weeping souls

No Tears 04:45
Can you see me? Do you know me? Like you thought you did As once I was And you freed me When you showed me The way Into your heart So sha la la la la la la la la Oh what more can you say? After you cry yourself to sleep And there are no tears left to weep In the distance Or when you’re near me Can you feel me there? As once I was If you listen You can hear me In the dark Crying out for love So sha la la la la la la la la Oh what more can you say? After you cry yourself to sleep And there are no tears left to weep
5.
Take Me Home 04:02
All eyes in As the winds do toil and spin Deciding who is flesh And who is made of stone Wild eyed I am And the witness takes the stand And in his hand Reveals the pointing bone And I wonder Of those left all alone I need someone to take me home All eyes in For the ending to begin On the head of a pin We dance into the storm And I wonder Of those left all alone I need someone to take me home
6.
You say you wanna see me But babe you make me wait so long And it’s so hard to do what’s right When all I wanna do is wrong I can’t wait to fill my lungs with your scent And feel your mark upon My heart and my skin Let me in You turn me on You turn me on You turn me on You turn me on and I feel alright And I’d be lying if I told you I had gentlemanly purpose in mind for you Let me taste you again I won’t waste a single drop of you Put your mouth upon me, baby Feel my broken heart and heal my scars And paint your name upon my skin Once again... You turn me on (Open up and take a chance, I move like lightning when you’re in your thunder pants) You turn me on (Where you been, girl, I don’t mind. I’m not the jealous but the loving kind) You turn me on (Close the window, shut the blinds, leave your panties and your past behind) You turn me on and make me feel alive

You Me Us We All Of Us Are On our own
8.
To see the sun in your heart To feel the pain in your eyes To realize you're alive when you’re most vulnerable To letting go Too late to beg you Ooh you’re the only one I want You are the voice I long to hear To see with a willing eye is all it takes To see with a willing eye is all it takes We could never tear apart The walls of the prisons To see with a willing eye is all it takes To realize you’re alive when you’re most vulnerable To letting go Two arms around you Ooh you’re the only want I want You lift me up above the Fear To see with a willing eye is all it takes To see with a willing eye is all it takes We could never tell apart The malls from the museums To see with a willing eye is all it takes No black rainbows Dark angels On the endless wire No more fables No pain No desire No black rainbows Dark angels In an endless spiral At the table Your will it will align With the forces that surround you With the forces that surround you With the forces that surround you With the forces that surround you Love is the force that does surround you
