Track Name: when i was a stone
i was one with everything when i was a stone/never moved by anything never really known/those were "the wonderful years"/simple and perfect and stupid/those were the times without tears/it's all flooded now/a million leagues beneath the sea when i was a stone/got no waves no threat from me crashing 'gainst your home/those were remarkable days/sunny and mild and simple/those were the skies rarely grey/it's all stormy now/i was you and you were me when i was a stone/"you're the reason that i bleed/i'm the one you owe"/those were incredible lies/simple and perfect and stupid/that was consent without why/i'm all questions now/take a good long look at me alive awake alone/i was one with everything when i was a stone
Track Name: sun sky moon
see the shadows creeping into the room/see the hunger growing wider/see the pleasures coming never too soon/one more link in her survival/and i'm the sun the sky the moon/when i really shine she puts her hand out/and me i'm just the brightest one/when i really shine she puts her hand out and aches/'cause it's good my love it's good my love it's good my love/see the shadows creeping into her mind/can you see how they divide her?/there's always someone leaving someone behind/even when i'm right beside her/and i'm the sun the sky the moon/when i really shine she puts her hand out/and me i'm just the brightest one/when i really shine she puts her hand out and aches/'cause it's good my love it's good my love it's good my love/touching your hand/touching your face/rolling down your tongue to fill your belly full of grace
Track Name: all my friends
all my friends say they're my best friend/don't they see me wearing thin?/all my friends say they understand/don't they see my head in spin?/i once had a premonition I'd one day fly/but i'm still in this here position beneath the sky/all my friends say i'm on my way/i wonder where they mean/all my friends say i'm growing up/i'm finally feeling like a teen/i just had a realization deep within/i don't need an electrician to plug me in/plug me in/all my friends said they couldn't wait/they all came premature/all my friends think i'm celibate/they're all looking for a cure/i can't get no satisfaction when i look/i always buy the new edition of the same old book/same old book/all my friends say i'm fading out/i know that's how it seems/all my friends sit there wide awake/i'm still following a dream/and i will paint all of creation if i must/only my imagination do i trust/all my friends say they're my best friend/don't they know it should be me?/all my friends say they understand/but do they see what I can see?/do they see?
Track Name: the wide atlantic
out of paris on a westward moving train/couldn't see much through the window-splattered rain/at a station somewhere you were waiting there/bracing for my face/it was cold but our embrace was colder still/was the distance too impossible to fill?/is the wide atlantic still between us now/still between us now?/in the car i watched the sunlight on your face/can i touch you? can i feel more out of place?/gorgeous Brittany won't take away my pain/won't take away my pain/in the shower i was rinsing off your smoke/ a naked fool the butt of fate's sick joke/oh a love so young it's such an early grave/such an early grave/i can't help myself there's always been a spark/i can't help myself you need me in the dark/i can't help myself i love you pure and plain/in the morning i will kiss your dreamy face/for the last time maybe who am i to say?/as the wide atlantic falls back into place
Track Name: tied/tide
never thought we could be one/but i'll lay me under you/into sand without a word/it is all i want to do/it is all/all/in a dream melting i am/i'm a slowly shrinking stone/grain by grain i'll be released/it is how i want to go/it is all/all/tied to a real thing/tide to a real thing/tied to a real thing/tide to a real thing
Track Name: me and my old man
i guess it’s all a show but it got me your attention i’m gonna take you in wrap you up for good inside me now i guess this is my way to satisfy my need to mean something tell me who am i if i cannot wrap you up for good inside me now but you’re distant as the moon the never-ending story of me and my old man i guess it’s all i know no bottom to the hole inside my heart i can’t just sew it up am i wrong to want to fill it in love’s a broken record and here it goes again the king in all his glory me and my old man i guess it’s what i am a prostitute for your affection what else can i do it’s given me a taste of love before and it leaves me wanting more the king in all his glory distant as the moon the never-ending story of me and my old man
Track Name: underwater
there you go off to somewhere here i am standing where you were and the sun fell over the valley found myself staring at you on the wall staring back at me and the sun fell over the valley in my conscience in my dreams flashes of you come in streams are you by me do you love me still took a drive off to somewhere there i was driving where you were and the sun fell over the valley found myself looking for you anywhere looking back at me and the sun fell over the valley in my body in my head flashes of you come in bed are you by me do you love me still i keep dreaming i get lost underwater turned and tossed can you help me do you love me still in my conscience in my dreams flashes of you come in streams are you by me do you love me still still i keep dreaming i get lost underwater turned and tossed can you help me do you love me still here i am cursing upward at the sky wondering where you are and the sun fell over the valley
Track Name: immaculate
my stormy heart’s gonna take some time to break be patient my love my stormy life may it never rain on you how could i forgive myself i’ll never tarnish you you’re so immaculate we’ll keep your world like new so immaculate my filthy hands may you never notice who you’re dancing with my filthy hands may you never know the truth i would change it if i could but i’ll never tarnish you you’re so immaculate we’ll keep your world like new so immaculate so immaculate you’re so immaculate i can’t believe you stepped inside my room you’re so immaculate i don’t believe you won’t be leaving soon you’re so immaculate there’s nothing here that i can offer you that’s so immaculate so immaculate so immaculate as you i’ll never tarnish you never trouble you never worry you never burden you never harden you never frighten you won’t even touch you we’ll keep your world like new like new like new so immaculate
Track Name: the first scene
i don’t remember how the first scene starts it’s been so long i always wanted to be young again was i so wrong i’m like a soul whose last departure’s been revealed i’m not certain even now what to feel i just see that the signs are all blank now and there’s a full load of fuel inside my tank now here i am behind the wheel nothing left to do but turn the key i don’t remember how your body looked just how it felt like the longest snow began to fall never to melt i’m like a ship that’s only trying not to sink i’m not certain even now what to think i just see you’re not with me no more now you’re just a tiny twinkling star upon the shore now here i am behind a telescope nothing left to do but find a home i don’t remember how the first scene starts i don’t know why you put your hope in me it haunts me still i always wanted to be worth your love i never will i’m just a ship that only moves with the sea i’m not certain even now what to be i just see that the old world is gone now that means a new one will be rising with the dawn now here i am front row center nothing left to do but watch the show i don’t remember how the first scene starts
