Bare
I want to live where the sky is big
Simple and free
That's where I want to be
Simple and free
That's where I gotta be

Take my clothes off,
Be the one I am
In my own rhythm
Like the water

Simple and free
That's where I gotta be

Just living day to day to day to day
Just living day to day to day to day

Like a cherry seed
Let me learn to bleed
Breaking open
Like the sun

Just living day to day to day to day to day
Just living day to day to day to day to day

Why do I keep fucking up x3

Just living day to day to day to day to day
Just living day to day to day to day to dayback to top
My Fidelity
Is it something ritual
I'm caught in, can't break the spell?
Is it moving in my body
Is it biological?
I gotta hand it to you
You've got one heart ten times divided.
Did you cut yourself in pieces
To get them all inside?

You dream about her, can't you see?
She's only shining bright
'cause she's so out of reach.
You dream about the seven seas
While I'm staying home each night,
Making love to my fidelity.

I'm rocking in my bed
I can't talk can't think can't sleep.
And nothing's jumping fences,
I only count what I cannot keep.
I lick my wounds,
I chase my instinct, like a cat.
I don't know how I got so good
Or why my heart's a trap.

You dream about her, can't you see?
She's only shining bright
'cause she's so out of reach.
You dream about the seven seas
While I'm staying home each night,
Making love to my fidelity.

Why I love you, why I love you
Why I love you I don't know,
Why I love you, why I love you, why.
Taking sides with my enemy
Making love to my fidelity.

You dream about her, can't you see?
She's only shining bright
'cause she's so out of reach.
You dream about the seven seas
While I'm staying home each night,
Making love to my fidelity.

I'm landlocked, stuck in here,
I don't want to take my freedom.
I can't change what makes me high
And I can't change what I believe in.
I'm not pleasing no guru,
I'm not out to look for jesus.
I'm not afraid to break the rules
It's just, one love keeps me breathing.

You dream about her, can't you see?
She's only shining bright
'cause she's so out of reach.
You dream about the seven seas
While I'm staying home each night,
Making love to my fidelity.

Why I love you, why I love you
Why I love you I don't know,
Why I love you, why I love you, why.
Taking sides with my enemy
Making love to my fidelityback to top
Spirit in You
Under your skin there's something beckoning,
There's something that makes me believe in you.
Behind your eyes, that's where the sacred lies,
You know I need to get through.

Oh here I go again.
Through the undergrowth again;
Feel the earth move, the planets spin
But I can't get through.

It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
That I want to find.

I've seen your face, the one your mother made.
Now let me see what makes you really move.
I know you're scared, I know it's tender there,
Just let me closer let me get through.

O here I go again,
Through the undergrowth again,
Feel the earth move, the planets spin
But I can't get through.

It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
That I want to find.

And when you make me feel
When you make me bleed,
My lucky stars fall down on me.
You know I need to know you,
I need to see,
I need to take ahold of what's underneath.
So close your eyes, close your eyes,
Unlock your mind, unlock your mind,
Throw off the fear, and let us fly.

O here I go again,
Through the undergrowth again;
Feel the earth move, the planets spin,
But I can't get through.

It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
That I want to find.

It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
That I want to find.back to top
Shell
Look at me I'm smooth like a shell,
Put your head down
You can hear the ocean.
Hold my body - feel it roll,
So much inside and it's all been broken.

You know it's just one step out it could all be over,
You know this could rip us out at the seams.

I'm falling; it's all in your hands,
Don't let it wash away.
I'm aching; don't take it all away,
Breaking the shell again.

Look at me I'm out on the edge,
Put your hand here
See I'm bleeding.
I can't get it, get the light out
I can't seem to tear out the feeling.

You know it's just one step out it could all be over,
You know this could rip us out at the seams.

I'm falling; it's all in your hands,
Don't let it wash away.
I'm aching; don't take it all away,
Breaking the shell again.

I am a box, I am a fish, I am a trail, I keep you warm,
And I remember stripping down to meet the water,
Wading out to where the sky turns under,
My insides smooth like a shell,
Like a shell...

You know this could rip us out at the seams.

I'm falling; it's all in your hands,
Don't let it wash away.
I'm aching; don't take it all away,
Breaking the shell again.

I'm falling; it's all in your hands,
Don't let it wash away.
I'm aching; don't take it all away,
Breaking the shell again.

Look at me I'm smooth like a shell,
Put your head in
Hear the ocean, rollback to top
Glow Stars
Kiss me, kiss me, under a glow-star sky;
If they're stuck on the ceiling I don't mind.
It's a brittle world but it's soft inside
I'll make the milky way for you, only you
For you, only you.

And I will always ride far into the night with you,
And I will take my chances, far into the night with you.
Only you, with you, only you

Love me, love me, under a glow-star sky,
It's a galaxy when we get high
And sleep to the junkies' lullabies,
I close my eyes for you, only you
You, only you.

And I will always ride far into the night with you,
And I will take my chances, far into the night with you.

I touch your face, I'm flying over fields,
I touch this moment - it's mine.
I'm an angel, I'm a parasite,
I'm a vessel - I shine.

Kiss me, kiss me, under a glow-star sky,
We'll be pushing up soil someday, sometime,
So hold me now, hold me tight,
I'll make the milky way for you, only you,
For you, only you.

And I will always ride far into the night with you,
And I will take my chances, far into the night with you.

And I will always ride, kiss me kiss me, far into the night with you,
And I will take my chances, kiss me kiss me, far into the night with you.
With you.back to top
Ear to the Ground
I've been wondering,
Waiting for something to give,
I won't be a heroine,
I'm just looking for something to live by.

And there are lesions in the soil
And there pockets of pain where the shadows lie,
And there are voices in the ocean,
And there is something in the sky.

A mother should say,
A father should say,
Oh you,
Look up, look down,
Keep your ear to the ground.

It's washing over me,
It's spinning, it's spinning under me
And am I looking up at the angels
Or am I really looking up at the clouds floating by?
And when I say I'm listening
Why is it I only hear you when you cry?

A mother should say,
A father should say,
Oh you
Look up, look down,
Keep your ear to the ground x3

A mother should say,
A father should say,
Oh you
Look up, look down,
Keep your ear to the ground x6back to top
Second Skin
The bullet's deep, I'm not dreaming,
The blood I keep, while you're healing.

Have you found your second skin, second wind ?
Have you found your second skin, second wind ?
Second skin.

You're riding high, you won't be falling
Don't look behind, I'm crawling.

Have you found your second skin, second wind ?
Have you found your second skin, second wind ?

Oh you could have been born to swim,
You could have been born to camouflage.

Have you found your second skin, second wind ?
Have you found your second skin, second wind ?

Does it pull ? a ring around your finger ?
Does it hurt ? and will it linger on ?

Have you found your second skin, second wind ?
Have you found your second skin, second wind ?

Have you have you have you have you x5back to top
Mother Tongue
I got my daddy's eyes
But you gave me your double vision,
I got my daddy's stride
Now I'm walking blind with double vision.

And I can almost see your face now, in me.
And I can almost feel the weight you carried.

You had to break the skin
To put the blood between us,
You did the dirty work
To put the blood between us.

And I can almost see your face now, in me.
And I can almost feel the weight you carried.

Oooh rocking the seed in me
Learning to speak the mothertongue.

Sometimes between the lines
I crashed, I could've killed you
I tried to go too fast -
I crashed, I could've killed you.

And I can almost see your face now, in me
And I can almost feel the weight you carried.

Oooh rocking the seed in me
Learning to speak the mothertongue.back to top
All the Way
When birds fly they navigate by stars,
These nights the walls come down,
These nights are ours.

This love is life, I want to stay,
I'll be beside you all the way.
All the way, all the way, all the way,
All the way, all the way, all the way.back to top
Frontier
Sometimes I'm an indian
Caught only by the sky
I can't go further
I'm going inside
See it's like a ride
It turns you out in the night
You're far from the road now
But it's getting brighter

If you don't believe it
Then loose yourself and feel it
This is the bright frontier
Right now, right here
This is the bright frontier
Right now, right here

Taking hold of what we have
It's easy now
We're splitting it open
To eat the seeds
Looking in at what we've found
It's easy now
This big horizon
It's you and me

If you don't believe it
Then loose yourself and feel it
This is the bright frontier
Where the love runs free
This is the bright frontier
The sky is the limit for you and me

When you get to the top of something
Do you get that feeling?
Do you get that high?
When you get to the top of something
Do you get there, you want to jump off?
Oh - we're going to keep on stretching out
We're going to ride on...back to top
Shaking the Doll
Oh I won't be your pretty baby,
I won't eat from your hand again.
And the man in the white says it's alright,
He says, come on girl give up the fight.
You'll go to sleep, there will be no pain.
Well I want to live with myself again.

Well, where we lived there was a lighthouse,
Throwing a white beam into our house,
Over my body when I was sleeping,
Over the secrets I was keeping,
I could tell myself there would be no pain,
But I have to live with myself again.

I'm digging up, I'm digging up,
I'm digging up, I'm digging up,
I'm digging up, I'm digging up,
I'm digging in the earth.

I'm looking for signs
And I'm shaking the dolls
And the fairy-tales lied
And somewhere, back there
I didn't understand,
Man and woman and woman and man.
And I'm shaking the dolls
I'm shaking the dolls.

Oooh, the dream isn't coming through,
I can't feel for you.

Well somewhere, back there
I didn't understand,
Man and woman and woman and man,
And I'm shaking the dolls
I'm shaking the dolls.
Oooh I have to live with myself again,
Oohh I want to be with my body again,
Ooohyou can't make me hollow again.

Oooh, the dream isn't coming through
I can't feel for you.

Love, shooting up, through my veins,
I gotta get a hit again.back to top
Talking to Strangers
I'm talking to strangers
To see what I feel
Your face is changing now
And nothing seems real
These things I know
Are like a baby how they grow in me
I pull them out
Just like a baby for you to see them all

I'm talking to strangers
To see what I need
This love between us now
How it's twisting in me
I want to get it out
I want to feel the breathing
I want to really love
I want to know the meaning
I want to share all these things

These things I know
Are like a baby how they grow in me
I pull them out
Just like a baby for you to see them allback to top
