Entwined 04:26
Let's see if the mountains Will crumble, if the oceans Will turn to dust, if the sun will set And never rise again on our requited love We'll sing, we'll smile, and we'll dance Our sanguine lives entwined With our scars and our dreams Let's see if my failure Defines me, if I'm justified In my pursuit to throw myself into your arms In your arms again We'll sing, we'll smile, and we'll dance Our sanguine lives entwined With our scars and our dreams It's all too much and it's all not enough It's all too much and it's all not enough We'll sing, we'll smile, and we'll dance Our sanguine lives entwined With our scars and our dreams We'll sing, we'll smile, and we'll dance I am yours and you are mine All our scars and our dreams

'Merican 03:40
I only see with these Western eyes That I'm the hero, never one of the bad guys I got my book - you know that it's King James Good enough for Jesus man so why should I ever change… 'Merican - it's hard to do I don't have time to give a damn But I got a pretty flag for you 'Merican - don't lose your shine Just look white in the mirror, dear And everything will be fine I'm sure it's bright up on this hill Just don't come any closer babe And let's agree to just ignore the smell Of broken dreams and expired intent Everybody wants to stay but no one can afford the rent 'Merican - it's hard to do I don't have time to give a damn But I got a pretty flag for you 'Merican - don't lose your shine Just look white in the mirror, dear And everything will be fine Why wouldn't we stay when it's all that we know Do you really think that I would give up the dream It seems to me that you could be here too If you just tried a little harder And I took my foot off your neck 'Merican - it's hard to do I don't have time to give a damn But I got a pretty flag for you 'Merican - don't lose your shine Just look white in the mirror, dear And everything will be... 'Merican - it's hard to do I don't have time to give a damn But I got a pretty flag for you 'Merican - don't lose your shine Just look white in the mirror, dear And everything will be fine

Shine down little star, sing for me little blue The darkness cannot stay against you Against you my love Sunshine Girl, where are you going? Sunshine Girl, where have you been? Sunshine Girl, where are you going? Sunshine Girl, where have you been? Grace, laugh with me In your eyes I see God Don't let go, don't let go Sunshine Girl, where are you going? Sunshine Girl, where have you been? Sunshine Girl, where are you going? Sunshine Girl, where have you been? Sunshine Girl, where are you going? Sunshine Girl, where have you been? Sunshine Girl, where are you going? Sunshine Girl, where have you been?

Thirty-three miles through the night Waiting for a sign That you are more than a picture in my mind More than just a breath Taken in a melancholic dance With the god who killed romance Because it was nothing more Than a beautiful distraction If you cry, I'll follow If we die breaking our hearts Along the way I'd give sixty years to breathe And I'd trade blood just to see Your vision dancing in my dreams Like a beautiful distraction If you cry, I'll follow If we die breaking our hearts Along the way If we part, I'll reach you There's still so far to go Look up cause it's a long way down If you cry, I'll follow If we die breaking our hearts Along the way If we part, I'll reach you There's still so far to go Look up cause it's a long way down

Fall Down 04:48
Oh did you think of everything Before you left this time Pictures of our broken dreams And memories that were mine But far be it for me to tell your truth When your truth is left behind Go ahead, fall down Can you feel the sun? Oh let it wash me Oh let it wash me and don't cry Go ahead, fall down Can you feel the sun? Oh let it wash me Oh let it wash me and don't cry Tear the veil amid the scream A vision of the blind Reaching out for you and me To drown the wind inside (Cover your eyes and just let go) Go ahead, fall down Can you feel the sun? Oh let it wash me Oh let it wash me and don't cry Go ahead, fall down Can you feel the sun? Oh let it wash me Oh let it wash me and don't cry Go ahead, fall down Can you feel the sun? Oh let it wash me Oh let it wash me and don't cry Go ahead, fall down Can you feel the sun? Oh let it wash me Oh let it wash me and don't cry Go ahead, fall down Can you feel the sun? Oh let it wash me Oh let it wash me and don't cry

Cattywampus 02:57
Everything's not always what it seems Break it down Tell me where you looking Hey man It's nothing that you haven't seen before Take a breath Before you start cooking Don't ask it's yours for the taking Everything's not always what it seems It's the illusion of control Double take Not that you can help it You're just a man It's not your responsibility That dress It's an affirmation Don't ask it's yours for the taking Everything's not always what it seems It's the illusion of control Throw her down Despite what she's saying Big man Just like you saw Daddy do before But one day She'll take back the power Don't cry it's hers for the taking Everything's not always what it seems It's the illusion of control Everything's not always what it seems It's the illusion of control

Speak to me all the truth in your lies A fantasy for your thin disguise And I'll break away from your chains tonight And I'll take away your power to win, to win this fight Come along everybody tell your secrets cause I know what you're thinking Come along everybody tell me cause... I can see the future You don't have a place there We? There is no we tonight... Speak to me all your plans for my life Another fantasy of my own demise Where I run away without a fight But that was yesterday, I'll not go quietly into that good night Come along everybody tell your secrets cause I know what you're thinking Come along everybody tell me cause... I can see the future You don't have a place there We? There is no we tonight... Speak to me and romanticize Your fantasy which you'd like to reprise But you overplayed all your cards this time So now you'll fade away and try again in another life Come along everybody tell your secrets Cause I know what you're thinking Come along everybody tell me

It's a bittersweet reminder As she races by faster than she should That I'm always chasing Chasing the one that I don't want to catch Turn around my love And for the first time let me see you Hold my gaze until the river comes to take me home And I'm afraid I'm not afraid Of giving myself to surrender And float along with you And float along with you Take all of my expectations Of who I thought she was tempered by my fear Of the unknown that everybody says they know Because the Bible told them so Or so the story goes Turn around my love And for the first time let me see you Hold my gaze until the river comes to take me home And I'm afraid I'm not afraid Of giving myself to surrender And float along with you And float along with you Have I misunderstood or failed to mention I don't know who I am? It's a failing I'm familiar with A thorn in my side that will never go away Turn around my love And for the first time let me see you Hold my gaze until the river comes to take me home And I'm afraid I'm not afraid Of giving myself to surrender And float along with you And float along with you Turn around my love...

Can I ask you a question And you don't have to answer It's just that there's something That I've always wondered And no I'm not being sarcastic Or have an ulterior motive When I say that I value your experience Tell me how, how to love you When you're everything But I'm not Alright Or even aware of where to begin So you see my dilemma A classic conundrum Of wanting to do What I don't want to do Because I want you Too many times I've been this close To reach back and let go And fall too many times Tell me how, how to love you When you're everything But I'm not Alright Or even aware of where to begin Yeah I want to be more than you make of me Yeah I want to be more than this Tell me how, how to love you When you're everything But I'm not Alright Or even aware of where to begin Tell me how, how to love you When you're everything But I'm not Alright Or even aware of where to begin

Apropos 03:49
Welcome to my stream of consciousness The inimitable venue where we crash and burn We're gonna break on through the fourth wall Tear that mother down 'til the silence is deafening (crescendo) And fortune will favor the bold if you were listening When I gave up the ghost But I can only repeat myself so many times (many times) Right (yeah) Say what you want to know Say what you want to say Say that it's apropos To see things my own way Let's stir shit up and force the conversation An evaluation of our paradigms And our inability to be who we want to be Without some duplicity required for a fee So figure out what you want to do with your thirty pieces Judas That you got from you know who Because I'm not going down with this one (it's a long way to fall) Say what you want to know Say what you want to say Say that it's apropos To see things my own way Say what you want to know Say what you want to say Say that it's apropos To see things my own way Say what you want to know Say what you want to say Say that it's apropos To see things my own way
