Simple
Tangled up your twisted tongue. it's simple.
Mesmerize your everyday. it's simple.
Hey hey can't you see?
Love is all that you should need.
Can't you see?

Ease your troubled mind.
Let love seek and let love find. it's simple.
Ease your weary soul.
Let love lead and let love flow. it's simple.

Pry into combative times. it's simple.
Forfeit all lush concerns. it's simple.
Hey hey don't you care?
Love is all that you should share.
Don't you care?

Cleanging out your tarnished heart. it's simple.
Learning from each other can be simple.
Hey hey don't we know?
Love is all that we should know.
Don't we know?back to top
Untitled
Who have I left to please?
Take what you've yet to sieze.
No more questioning
'cause love is what love should be.
Unveil to me all that you want me to do.
But why should I stop bearing allegiance to you?
See, I don't believe in
The sorcerers or the preachers.
I just don't believe in you.
And I don't believe in
The scholars or wise men.
I just believe in you.

What have I left to prove?
I speak all the words you choose.
Confine me in walls of truth
'cause love does that love should do.
No more sentence. all of my pain has been freed.
Why should this end when your mercy's all I need?
See, I don't believe in
The sorcerers or the preachers.
I just don't believe in you.
And I don't believe in
The scholars or wise men.
I just believe in you.back to top
The World I Know
Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all the kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on.
I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in new york city
And I don't know why.

Are we listening to hyms of offering?
Have we eyes to see that love is gathering?
All the words that I've been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding into one.

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
As the years roll down.
'cause it's the world I know.
It's the world I know.back to top
Smashing Young Man
Beggar's description
Of what I've been missing
Exploit your position
Don't think I didn't listen
Hey I hope you're feeling
A little better now

Success is so tragic
Pain is your gadget
Your tongue's just lashing
Just bitching by habit
Hey I hope you're feeling
A little purer now
Hey I hope you're feeling
Securer now

Help me I plea
I don't understand
Your ways and means
You smashing young man
Help me to see
The good you have planned
You're wearing thin
You smashing young man

You preach synthetic-like
Peace is an oversight
It's nothing to ignite
Your self-lit spotlight
Hey I hope you're feeling
A little special now
Hey I want to tell you
I think you're special now

I don't recall asking for guidance
I don't recall wanting to
I don't recall bowing before you
But I'm so impressed
With the kindness in your attitudeback to top
December
Why drink the water from my hand?
Contagious as you think I am
Just tilt my sun towards your domain.
Your cup runneth over again.

Don't scream about
Don't think aloud
Turn your head now baby
Just spit me out
Don't worry about
Don't speak of doubt
Tourn your head now baby
Just spit me out

Why follow me to higher ground?
Lost as you swear I am.
Don't throw away your basic needs,
Ambiance and vanity.

December promice you have unto me
December whispers of treachery
December clouds are now covering me
December songs no longer I singback to top
Where the River Flows
Give me a moment
Got to get this weight up off my chest
Don't feed me sorrow
Pain is a poison I digest

Find yourself another soul to hold
You think, you thought, I know
Off upon my journey I must go
To where the river flows

I'll give you answers
To the questions you have yet to ask
Silence is beauty
Words they only complicate the task

Make no more wishes
All of my patience has been spent
Gods of the season
Lead me to my next incidentback to top
Gel
Color me any color.
Speak to me in tongues and share.
Tell me how you'd love to hate me.
Tell me how you'd love to care.
Well I just want to shake us up.

Let's mingle
And make it well.
Come together now.
Yeah let's gel.

Clothe me in any fashion.
Glitter to so mundane.
Tell me how you'd love to change me.
Tell me I can stay the same.
I just want to shake us up.

Let's mingle
And make it well.
Come together now.
Yeah let's gel.
Well let's bungle
And live to tell
How we came together.
Yeah how we gelled.back to top
She Gathers Rain
Today she dresses
For the change she's facing now
And the storm that's raging
A safe haven she has found
She doesn't care
What the prohpets say anymore
For the love she had
She has no more
So she gathers rain
She gathers rain
To rinse away all her guilt and pain
She gathers rain
She gathers rain
To wash and cleanse and make her whole again

Her imagination
Has started stretching wide
And her new conviction
No longer will she hide
She's not branded
When prophets speak words of fire
The same love she gives
She requires
So she gathers rain
She gathers rain
To rinse away all her guilt and pain
She gathers rain
She gathers rain
To wash and cleanse and make her whole againback to top
When the Water Falls
She's a picture perfect child
Of innocence.
Searching out in childlike ways
For knowledge.
Now she's questioning her mother
Yeah she's questioning her father
Yeah she's looking for the answers
To the problem that confronts her.

Do you know where the sun goes
When the water falls?
Do you know where the rain goes
When the water falls?

Though I think her subjects could
Run far and wide.
She has centered on the topic
Of the sky.
Now she's questioning her mother
Yeah she's questioning her father
Yeah she's looking for the answers
To the problem that confronts her.back to top
Collection of Goods
Resonate tones of saving grace
Separate from the gods of hate
Alleviate all our doubting ways
Congregate to more loving days

A collection of peace where we could live
A collection of hope for us to give
A collection of words that mean we care
A collection of love for us to share

Recognize all equality
Vocalize solidarity
Excercise your tranquility
Glamourize all of love's needsback to top
Bleed
I think her gun's unloaded now.
I guess tomorrow will be after all?
Who made me judge and jury here?
It seems I'm bearing witness to her fall.

I don't know why she cries to me.
(she keeps pain as company)
'cause it's only time before we all must bleed.

Mirrors of her memory
Reflect nothing with each word she says.
Her views have got me spinning 'round.
I think she's burning altars in her head.back to top
Reunion
Change will come
Change is here
Love fades out
Then love appears

Now my water's turned to wine
And these thoughts I have
I now claim as mine
I'm coming home

Change has been
Change will be
Time will tell
Then time will ease

Now my curtain has been drawn
And my harts can go
Where my heart does belong
I'm going homeback to top
