Track Name: Long Long Long
I discovered in a cloud of doubt
what I knew all along.
I was so washed out I started to erode
and what was left was a skeleton.
It takes so long, long, long
to wear you thin.

I locked myself out of our own home
All the time I held the key.
Winds that were blowing weren't at my back
when all I needed was to change my tack.
It takes so long, long, long
to get you back.

I'll just have to wait.

To end in discord wasn't my intent
there's a future we have not met.
It takes so long, long, long -
it wears you down.
It takes so long, long, long
to admit I'm wrong.

And I'll just have to wait.
Track Name: Taken Flight
fading out of view
in the distance

just a speck of light
caught my eye'

And I could not let go
I could not forget.

you burned a hole
in my memory.
---------------------------------------
Now I know
what it means
to be on my own every night
In dreams you ask
why the tears?
But you have already
taken flight.
---------------------------------------
The scent of grass
on the breeze

Sent my thoughts
to stir

Of time fallen
down in the well

And feeling vunerable
and it hurt like hell
---------------------------------------
After all you were just
passing by.

And you've had
your stay

You'd gone on to stretch your legs

Where there's room enough for you
and so quiet too.
Track Name: You need Love
IIf I can feel that there's love
and that's all that I need.
I believe we can be good -
if we try to try


There must be something out there that's higher.
but not here. not here. not now.

You don't need to feel low.
to be lost like I am.
You don't need to feel eyes upon you
I know not to stare.

You say you dont need nothing else in this life.
You don't need anything else to make this right.
'cause it's right here, right here. right in front of your face.

There's a place in your smile
were I stay
You can't ask me to leave
I could never go away.

I know some times I'm a little hard to reach.
Some things you learn and some things you teach.
Its breaking what's fragile in you.

And you need love.
Track Name: It's Over
It's over.
Decide
Know why you cry.

It's over.
All those years,
to begin again
so cautious.

Decide what to do with
All those plans.
Some things don't work out
all that well.

You say you don't know why
But I think you do.
Was it anything else
but me and you?
Track Name: Anywhere but Here
Anywhere But Here.


I want to live in the old great plains
and reap the the fruit of the harvest again
I want stand in the tall, tall grass
where clouds build fast and they aint your friends
I want to live in the old great plains
Anywhere but here.

Anywhere but here - I wanna go.
Anywhere but here.

I want to see where the river bends
rowing out to the narrow ends
on the banks of that distant land.
Build a house under six feet of sand.
Don't you let it all wash away.
Don't you let rains fall hard

I want to be where the rocket lands
the milky way - in a grain of sand.
Those starry eyes that I see at night
Staring down from the greatest height.
I can't stay in the milky way
But I can't live here no more.


I want to fly to the moon above
and settle down with my one true love
I'll be stepping in weightless dreams
to find out what life there means.
Can I hitch a ride with you
We'll leave just us two.

Anywhere but here - I wanna go.
Anywhere but here.
Anywhere but here - I wanna know.
Anywhere but here.
Track Name: Never Automatic Anymore
Never
automatic
anymore.
===========================
What you are
is wasted Air
no need to be near
When conscience thoughts are far.

Dressed alike.
cog and spoke.
filling up with smoke
Trailing on behind.

Imitation - (cough cough)
Confrontation - turns me off
Alienation - what's the point
Frustration - making noise

but i'm never
automatic
anymore.

Trudge ahead
With an eye to the ground
It's happiness you've found.
You've never had to beg.

the old tick tock
hands take a beating
another lap behind the leader
You Should've cashed your stock.

Imitation - (cough cough)
Confrontation - turns me off
Alienation - what's the point
Frustration - making noise

but i'm never
automatic
anymore.
Track Name: Lay Down Your Arms Helen of Troy
Lay Down Your Arms Helen of Troy

She made love then she made war
And launched a thousand ships at my door
Her myth and secrets kept buried deep
kidnapped from her youth too sad to weep

Will you Lay down?
Lay down your arms
Lay down your arms
and Let me in
put down your guard
put down your guard.

sent me sailing across the sea
Are you lonely and helpless or just reckless treachery.
She is The shining one who Carried the torch
but what lies in the shadow of your wooden horse?

Filled with spite and loathing for herself
hanging on a tree - a forbidden wealth
Her courage and character that were not so strong
She wonders she could have caused such wrong.
Track Name: It's Hard to Lie Inside
It's Hard to Lie Inside

Look right in the mirror
eyes don't make it easy to see
how much I don't want to be.

Don't have to tell me
I want to write it in a scar
how f#@%ing happy you are.

When will the pain let up
what can we tell ourselves
It's hard to lie inside.

Fade out in the morning
when we're clean as dew drops
and feel the way outside yourself.

Glass that's looking though you
hollow and abusive.
It's constant interruption to your smile.
Track Name: Listen (Are You Listening to Your Heart)
Listen (Are You Listening to Your Heart)

Is there a struggle in your mind -
a blank feeling in your soul -
an emptiness I know - a restless stirring in your soul?
Oh you're just full of noise.
Oh now, you're just full of noise.

You listen. Are you you listening to your heart?

Is there some pressure underneath -
a spot that makes you feel so weak -
a guiding anxiety - a hole you're digging out?
Carve yourself some space.
Oh now carve yourself some space.

Don't forget when you look within
the pulse the electricity -
the sandstorm in the desert -
the beacon on the rocky shore
is inside your chest.
Rocky shore is inside your chest.

You listen. Are you you listening to your heart?
