Track Name: Bedroom Window
Looking out my bedroom window
Wondering how far I would have to go to find you
I must have been here before
I must have been here a thousand lives

I believe in love
I believe in freedom
I believe in the promises of change

Looking out my bedroom window . . .

You know that I'm afraid, so I've shaded my heart
I don't expect much, things do fall apart
But pride in my fear is no freedom
I know it's not your style but I believe in expressing what I'm feeling

I believe in love
I believe in freedom
I believe in the promises of change

Looking out my bedroom window
wondering how far I would have to go to find you
Track Name: Let Go
Let go of what you're feeling, if what you're feeling is wrong
Let go of what you're thinking, if what you're thinking is wrong
Let go of why you're living, if why you're living is wrong
Let go, let go

Don't you understand decent talk, easy living is not what we're asking for
Pride considers you the fool, so tear down your altar
If peace or happiness were what you wanted, we wouldn't talk compromise
I see you as a man, I see you as a woman, no less
But the beast that runs around this circus is human
So most won't get around to checking if you're breathing

Let go of what you're feeling, if what you're feeling is wrong
Let go of what you're thinking, if what you're thinking is wrong
Let go of why you're living, if why you're living is wrong
Let go, let go
Track Name: Game
Rich as the vein tapping crude, but I'm sophisticated
My sound's locked out the world, do I still make it
Whose got love for me?
Evaded the colors for too long to be baited into the race music
Listen to it you will hear, something kind of clear
The imbued relay the heat ray's intensity
Brain cells break down on contact
You've got to give it to me
Thoughts deliver me, the flesh is word and true to fiction
I'll never let them take my imagination
"What you say?"
I'll never let them take my

"Yeah man, we were all out here waiting
Watching, listening.
Somebody might come along, see, call it home."

It's like people walk and change comes slowly
It's like people talk and game comes slowly

Outside what I'm feeling, the stars might have an answer
So, it's debatable whether you'll come around
And if I sound should have to wait another hundred years
Children will still receive their blessing
Track Name: Carousel
Children march through gunfire
Yellow popsicle ribbons falling from the sky
Cotton-candy dreams these soft brown eyes have never seen
Love's winding down like a carousel
Love's winding down like a carousel

Swells the fearless on
Drugged ambition they'll
Maim your children and
Fill you're prisons

Children march through gunfire
For a Cracker Jack Jesus
They put it all on the line
The deepest cotton dye from the reddest wine
Love's winding down like a carousel
Love's winding down like a carousel

Swells the fearless on
Drugged ambition they'll
Maim your children and
Fill you're prisons

Soon we'll run, through daisy-strewn fields
Cottonweed blows, with the clouds at our heels
Soon we'll fly, through a watermelon sky
Son takes his bride, on a southern ride
Track Name: Enough
I've been enough places
I couldn't tell you where I've been
Maybe it's to forget

It's frightening how the time I've wasted catches up
Passing me by, never letting up

I wish someone could tell me how I could change my ways
And I could get my life together
I wish someone could tell me I was standing at the edge
And ready to be falling

Enough pain, enough sorrow
Enough starlight I've stolen from the midnight sky

I've seen enough stages
And watched the world float by
In too many lonely eyes
Even if I didn't try to hurt you

The faces of my memories get me down
Don't tell me this is just another runaround
When what's sacred comes unwound

I wish someone could tell me how I could change my ways
And I could get my life together
I wish someone could tell me I was standing at the edge
And ready to be falling

Enough pain, enough sorrow
Enough starlight I've stolen from the midnight sky
Only to say goodbye
Track Name: Disjointed
Bones in the fire, I'm scheming already
She's caught up, with chicken wire tied round her neck
She only takes me, no mistakes me

Tongues trip the wire that once held me steady
I'm standing on street corners asking for names
Only takes me, no mistakes me

Toys, humanity
Destroys some sanctity

Come save my soul
Come save my soul
Which way to go
I just don't know
Track Name: Density
There's a dense and heavy room where iron mirrors look like windows to a pitch black sun
Insanity wrenches time and across the hexagon of walls move solid shadow
Sight bleached, darkness mind, sight bleached, darkness mind

Happiness is the dream we've been waiting for
We've been waiting for some sort of answer, or some sort of question, to inspire
Happiness is the dream, we've been waiting, for some time
(Background vocals)
If I could separate from myself, happiness, the dream
I could hear her calling, dream

My mind conceives a child, like hell she's going wild
My mind conceives a child, like hell

Happiness is an elusive obsession, a substance of the will
A substance of desire, a substance subject to manipulation

She moves with the devil the dead sea,
Breaking the calm, her blasphemy
Cuts to the bone and dislodges me
Distorting reflections, she lies to me

(Vocal Layers)
Like hell she's going
She lies
I could, I could hear her calling
Happiness the dream
Track Name: Guess I Was Supposed To Love You
Guess I was supposed to love you
Somehow I didn't feel it that way
At a time I thought I needed you
Somehow it didn't turn out that way

It's been a long and winding road
Last Winter almost did me in
It's been a long and grinding road
And they say that truth is just around the bend

Hope you've moved on now
Though I think of you, I won't return
Hope you've moved on now
Hope there's happiness
Someone who will love you
Someone who will love you
Track Name: Blur
Blurring love and hate, the procedural liar
Lies in bed with you, lies in wait
And at the unexpected hour, expect he'll turn

As for restlessness, there's impermanence to blame
Natural Hunger

Your tender arms wrapped around me, my snakelike tongue squeezing you
And when the last of your defenses has fallen
You should know I'm leaving you

Being master of self-deception, could it be that this is true
Could it be, I'm not the predator, but a victim, just like you

Blurring love and hate, the procedural liar
Lies in bed with you, lies in wait
And at the unexpected hour, expect he'll turn

As for restlessness, there's impermanence to blame
Natural Hunger
Track Name: Atmosphere
Meditate without the breeze and still I'm floating on air
Breathe in the atmosphere of a rarefied groove
The blue mood uses serious sound frequencies
Pitched with the ontology of your enlightenment
Know what it meant to be a slave, know what it means to be free
Know what it means to take life seriously

Buddha mind walks the breeze
Time breathes like air
Perceptions cut the atmosphere into a 3-headed groove
Hips move to the physical sound frequencies
Pitched with the ontology of your enlightenment
Taught the fear of a slave, felt the passion to be free
In her words, you could never take life too seriously

Live the way they come, die the way they go
Easy way they come, hard the way they go

Leave the way they come, come the way they go
Hard the way they come, easy way they go
Track Name: Drift
Sleep comes slowly
Three past the witching hour
This night, unholy

Flesh can't hold me
Three past the witching hour
This night, unholy

Lost and restless
Heaven's gates have all rusted
The muse of light has gone
The screeching siren's song
Suggests the world is busted

So I hate to pass the time alone

Night's full crescent
Though the day keeps on guessing
Can words replace what's prone
To slip through hands of stone
And feed on bottom

So I try to keep my heart away

Uncontested rage has me pressing
To prove the devil wrong
Who clipped my daddy's song
And was never brought to justice

See, the anger pulls my mind undone

In the dark recesses, forgiveness is tested
And tears prepared this song, when I staked my life upon
A photograph of heaven

And the world appears to drift away
Track Name: Soon She'll Dance in the Fire
Soon she'll dance in the fire
Smooth white skin won't protect her

Chased away the devil from his easy going home
People in this town, mysterious

Built this maze out of shattered glass and fear
Her death won't come easy

Soon she'll dance


Walk these streets of muted sensation
Sidewalks reek of urine
And the sign of devastation blinks
Twenty-four hours

Till the neon burns out
And fury emerges from dry darkness
Wanting and remembering
Wanting and needing

Needing dry darkness to bite
To the right of being human
To borderline
suicide or savior


Soon she'll dance in the fire
Smooth white skin won't protect her

Chased away the devil from his easy going home
People in this town, mysterious

Built this maze out of shattered glass and fear
Her death won't come easy

Soon she'll dance
