Track Name: you came screaming
did you see them sway?/two whole lives into nothing/for that moment i was shattered too/i made my way/with a breaking smile on a sad face/just might need it when i'm back here again/i saw that man/all wrapped up facing skyward/for that moment i was gone myself/he turned my way/grabbed a star from the sky and said/'you can have it 'cause i know it's not mine'/'put the rules aside/wait 'til dawn'/you came screaming/i know your love/'put the rules aside/wait 'til dawn'/you came screaming/you see this man?/wrap him up/you might not need this but i'm all mixed up/don't you know this is nothing more than confession?/we just might need it when we're back here again/because no love grows on trees/'wake now darling please'/you came screaming/i look i try but no love grows on trees/'put the rules aside/wait 'til dawn'/you came screaming/if i know love is by my door i will rise from the gutter from the fear in this place/'wake now darling please'/you came screaming
Track Name: blind
blind / i wish that i had been / blind / i wish that i had been / before i realized it you'd come in through my eye / a beauty more than ageless astounding me like the sky / you knew to please me first to make me beg for more / and i ignored the storm until i'd climbed on board and was sinking / blind / i wish that i had been / blind / i wish that i had been / your grace was so familiar / i wasn't quite the same / i slipped into your garden / dared not ask your name / and when you showed yours first i only could say yes / and i ignored what i knew the serpent in your nest was thinking / blind / i wish that i had been / blind / i wish that i had been / blind to the notion / blind to the form / blind to your neon flashing wonderful and warm / blind to the wrapping / blind to the look / to the half-naked cover of your flesh-and-blood book / because all i really ever got from you has got me thinking / blind / i wish that i had been
Track Name: as big as love
i'm thinking about the big world / its shape leaves a shadow on my brain / a big shadow of a place i cannot understand/ with its promises of pleasure and pain / shall i run shall i move shall i watch it all from here? / shall i laugh at myself for crying? / or shall i listen to the lips a-whispering in my ear / ' no shadow is as big as love'? / a man showed me a picture in his wallet / he said 'this is my girl far away' / he said ' sometimes it's hard living this big life / but it's good to know she's with me anyway' / now do i blush do i turn do i show the way i feel ? / do i laugh and say 'you must be lying' ?/ or do i listen to the lips a-whispering in my ear / 'no distance is as big as love' ?/ not as big as this / a child threw a smile in my direction / it conjured up a picture in my brain / of a flame that never dies / a fire that only burns the big prison doors that jail my innocence / shall i knock shall i dig shall i start a fire in here ? / shall i laugh at myself for trying ? / or shall i listen to the lips a-whispering in my ear / 'no prison is as big as love' ?/ no doubt no pain no shadow on my brain / no distance is as big as love / not as big as this
Track Name: hollow
you call it make believe / what you call rust i call silver / i'm just a fool to you / you call my stream 'frozen river' / i guess yours is the real world / this place where war is king / where nights are cold and dark / and no one trusts a thing / but i am captured by a star i know that i must follow / if mine is make believe it licks your real world hollow / you call it make believe / yeah but yours is half-gone mine's filled to the middle / i wasn't fooled by you / i find your record of truth an unfounded riddle / 'cause when a preacher screws a whore / you're there taking pictures of the scene / when there's a hundred others feeding hearts and mouths / you don't see a thing / and i agree the whole picture can be a little too hard to swallow / if mine is make believe it licks your real world hollow / call it a fairy tale / you can call it fiction / you can call it fake call it unreal / you can call it lies / you can call it hypnotism / you can call it anything you feel / you can call it make believe / what you call rust i'll call silver / i'll be a fool to you / you can call my stream 'frozen river' / and yours can be the real world / this place where war is king / where nights are cold and dark / and no one trusts a thing / and i agree the whole picture can be a little too hard to swallow / but i am captured by a star i know that i must follow / if mine is make believe / if mine is make believe / it licks your real world hollow
Track Name: a different tune
i don't want to be your friend / if it means i have to wear a smile and comb my hair / if it means that much to you don't bother keep your mind / i will do the same / there is hunger in my veins / roads i have to choose / if i should steer against the grain / don't hate me for hearing a different tune / i don' want to be your man / if it means i have to whisper lies and stroke your / when you only need to sleep upon the bed you made / we all must do the same / there is romance in my veins / honesty in my boots / so when my lips begin to part / don't hate me for singing a different tune / i don't want to be your son / if it means i have to play the part whichever one / if it means that much to you don't bother keep your mind / i will do the same / and the music in my veins / it must have come from you / the outcome was not yours to choose / so don't hate me for hearing a different tune
Track Name: devotion
once there was a dying day that slipped away from me / i had no cure to give it / she was laid into the horizon / a burial at sea / left me with the living / the dusky sky arrests me with a fear i cannot name / all beauty must be fleeting or it would never capture me again / i'm on my way / my precious time still in motion / no mortal god will ever buy my devotion / my devotion / once there was a falling seed that prayed for fertile ground / then reached up towards the heavens / though the riches of the earth were plenty / an emptiness took her down / aching for the unseen / the starry roof above me is one thing i can trust / it proves we're all in the same place / we all are made of dust / i'm on my way / my precious time still in motion / no mortal god will ever buy my devotion / my devotion / alarm bells are ringing miles away / and wonder is bleeding on the altar / if life has no dreaming why should i stay ? / if it's gonna be a lifetime of waking / shake me shake me shake me 'til i do / i'm on my way / my precious time still in motion / no mortal god will ever buy my devotion / my devotion
Track Name: nothing but the truth
lover am i breaking a rule ? / i've always been your rock your faith your fool / if it gets so lonely on your mystery ride / it makes no sense with you here by my side / i don't mean to alarm you / but the scene isn't right / you'll get nothing but the truth from me tonight / lover am i crossing a line ? / well every time i crossed before was fine / now you hide like a baby on your mystery ride / keeping all the joys of heaven locked inside / i don't need to convert you / i don't need to be right / you'll get nothing but the truth from me tonight / truth equals freedom / freedom is truth / it is one thing / truth equals freedom / freedom is truth / it is one thing / lover is it breaking your heart ? / i never should have done it from the start / to believe i was with you on your mystery ride / when you never even had me by your side / i'm on some other highway / i'm on some other seat / with your image slowly fading from the seat / it wasn't love in your whisper / it wasn't love in your smile / it was please my friend come save me for a while / and it wouldn't alarm me if i'd been listening right / i hear nothing but the truth from you tonight
Track Name: andromadine
i recall a shape on the horizon / i can feel the promise in the curve / like a brilliant sun you'll be arising / over here the cold and waiting earth / i can't describe the faith that i put in you / i can't describe the vision that i lost / i want you back andromadine / a waiting stage a waiting scene / i want you back andromadine / i want you like you used to be / a virgin land a virgin sea / i want you back andromadine / i recall the first lines of the story / i can feel the plotline pull me in / a page or two and i can feel your glory / soon enough i'll touch your very skin / i can't describe the faith that i put in you / i can't describe the damage that was done / i want you back andromadine / a waiting stage a waiting scene / i want you back andromadine / i want you like you used to be / a virgin land a virgin sea / i want you back andromadine/ i can't describe the faith that i put in you / i can't describe the freedom that i lost / i want you back andromadine / a waiting stage a waiting scene / i want you back andromadine / i want you like you used to be / a virgin land a virgin sea / i want you back andromadine
Track Name: stand on my shoulders
the place where i was born is a lovely place / no man i know has seen a lovelier place / the greenest trees and the sunniest days / and a ten-foot wall to surround me / the place where i was born is the richest place / no man i know has seen a richer place / the buildings are crystal and the streets are all gold / and there's a ten-foot wall to assure me / what would i see if i could stand on my shoulders ? / nothing at all i have no doubt / leaving my feet for half a second / it's a dangerous thing i can live without / the place where i live is a happy place / my child wears a smile on her rosy-cheek face / i've taught her well not to get too close to that ten-foot wall / because the place where we live is a peaceful place / though sometimes i get scared when the walls start to shake / there's viloence on the outside but not in here / and the ten-foot wall protects my family / so if you're by / walk on in / let me lock the gate and show you 'round / there's just one rule you must keep : / of the world outside you cannot speak / what would i see if i could stand on my shoulders ? / nothing at all i have no doubt / leaving my feet for half a second / it's a dangerous thing i can live without / the place where i'll die is a lovely place / it's only been once i thought of leaving this place / when the strangest traveller came in for a rest / i asked him to stay like have all of my guests / but the words he spoke they wove a haunting tale / of a heavenly place that made mine look like hell / and if i stood on his shoulders he said i would see it / and he called me a fool for not wanting to see it / and as he said goodbye it seemed my lovely place became a cardboard shack painted the ugliest grey / but the truth is strong / i know he lied to my face / for my ten-foot wall is still standing / what would i see if i could stand on my shoulders ? / nothing at all i have no doubt / leaving my feet for half a second / it's a dangerous thing i can live without
Track Name: reminder
goodbye to all the familiar / it's a crumbling cage / goodbye to immortal illusions / and to my youthful age / i am no longer a slave to sorrow / now she can only release me / for when she comes / the progression reminds me / that i belong to you / goodbye to the reign of the intellect / i set him free / he stole my belief and emotion / and he put his reins on me / i am no longer a slave to reason / now he can only release me / for when he comes the possession reminds me / that i belong to you / i give myself to the river that takes me / i give myself to the sea / i give again to the raincloud that brings me / to dry that that dreams about me / i ma no longer a stranger to freedom / no you can only receive me / for when you come the recognition reminds me / that i belong to you
