Track Name: Arthur Martha
“You’re wrong, you are wrong”
the voices from the backseat
the noises that pave the road

now i lay beneath the sheets
pray, pray for me
getting better, but it takes time
getting over, but it takes time

arthur …. martha …
chameleon
Track Name: Blow
It comes from his head
he’s waiting to blow
and cover my mess
what a show

mine is a body worth breaking
over your knee
don’t make me shit where I’m eating
and tell me I’ll get along just fine

even a dog would cry....

i’ll be around
inside his head
i’ll be a clown
falling into his bed

even a dog would beg.....

the dream is taking forever
how am i supposed to live like that?
the dream is forever
how am i supposed to live like that?
Track Name: Beau Geste
We cannot stop what is foreseen
pushing through, we use our wings
guide and propel us under water befouled and born

born

we flow in silence, let us ride
oh can’t we stay and take a ride?
we’re home, we’re home

home

life without home
leave us in the womb, soaked
lead us home
propulsion without hope, we’re soaked
“if you wait, if you will.....
i’ll take you from your tomb
well before you’re cold...
you’re cold.. you’re cold”
Track Name: (Gifts of) A Lesser Man
Anxious high - chances low
Mission done - life runs slow
Looking for a way to bring it back again

The pressure of my thoughts is not relieved
Invitation to speak - a lie revealed

In the stillness it’s absurd
To play a note, make myself heard
One voice says “push forward”
The other says “stop dead”

Where I go, I go alone
I cannot take you with me
So sad, but beautiful
The current carries, lifts me

There’s something here that you don’t understand
I’m tired of arguing: a lesser man

In the stillness it’s absurd
To play a note make myself heard
One voice says “push forward”
The other says “stop dead”
Track Name: Postscript
Almost gone now
into the open divide
and out of my life
i’ll try to keep it light

all i have is all that i am
won’t you step inside and show me who i am?
hoping baby you’d understand
it’s the strangest kind of plan

oh help me to forgive
all that i did under him
cus he’s keeping me over his head
so we don’t argue yet

all i have is all that i am
won’t you step inside and show me who i am?
hoping baby you’d understand
it’s a one-level plan

it’s over, so over
i am sober...from you
i am no rescue dog
i am no company
i am no bill to pay
i am no burden, babe
Track Name: Nobody's Happy
Let the light in
earth widen
hard wired
we have nothing

when everyone wakes up
from what’s been made up
whoever doesn’t fall down dead
will be standing naked

heart is broken
i’ve got a piece of it on
fired by a duality is all i live for

i hope
in a while
our work won’t be enough
you rise up out
feel devout
stacking fear looks particularly stunning

we are free and soaring outside of time
red light is coming in

but where will you go?
we will wake up
back up, hold the light up

you can’t be here
you’re not there
red light coming in!
we are free
and soaring outside of time
we just want to get back to our bodies

running, running and laughing
leaves are shaking, leaves are shaking
we are free and soaring outside of time
we just want to get back to our bodies
Track Name: In the Cathedral
Feel the warmth of the burn
follow the ash from the fire... home
feel the beat of your heart
you will never fight alone

slow it down

Even when there is no chance
even when it slips from your hands
you will learn, you will learn …

to grow in the morning rain
where all things begin again
you’re home

slow it down

Even when there is no chance
even when it slips from your hands
you will learn, you will learn …

to slow it down
slow it down, down, down, down....
Track Name: New York under the sea of our dreams
You, with the grace of birds in the wild
and you with the bigger hand floating on the sea over me
you ask me how i got used to it
funny how the rocks all around me spilled into a pit
they pull away,

but the current gets rougher everywhere
and the road gets buried under there

in the dark the ghost rider with laser eyes
pins me down and draws a line outside my heart

but the ghosts don’t get tired
ghosts can’t be buried
ghosts don’t get tired
dead, not buried

go easy on me, i am way out in New York
go easy on me, i am way out and out of my mind
i am over the top, for the final time i will emerge
ride the waves and i’m floating above
you will know, you will know that it’s me
wide awake in new york
Track Name: Dream Lucy
Lucy wants to dream
She wants to be asleep again
It was so sweet
Oh really it was wonderful
She was so sweet
She was everything you asked her for
She wants to sleep
Lying flat against the floor

Dream Lucy … Sleep Lucy …

Lucy wants to dream
Dream herself into another world
Where she isn’t she
And she doesn’t have to say a word
You had so much to say
Now you’ll never say another word
You went so far away
And now you are ready like her

Dream Lucy … Sleep Lucy …
Track Name: Wired
Learn to listen to the change of your face
like the wind that blows and never knows the way
and like the moon anticipates the sun
so i circle around..
but what's it all about?

feed the crows
to see what they know
and how they suffer in the wind
that's come to carry them
and waving about me
would you care if i went to go them?
wish i could have tried
or you didn't put me on the line....

oh, let them in but you can't win
they've come to be the cracks on the wall
there to tell the fall
but a house split in two looks better than you do
now

feed me seeds
and let me stay in their arms
and carry me...... carry me along
wish that you could have tried
to keep me off the line
or held me underneath your little wing
wish i could have tried
or you didn't put me on the line
the line.
