Deep Water
When you find yourself falling down
Your hopes in the sky but your heart like grape gum on the ground
And you try to scrape yourself up
But you keep seeping out like cheap gin through a broken cup
And you try to find yourself
In the abstractions of religion and the cruelty of everyone else

And when you're standing in deep water
And you're bailing yourself out with a straw
When you're drowning in deep water
And you wake up making love to a wall
Well it's these little times that help to remind
It's nothing without love
Love, love, it's nothing without love
It's nothing without love

When you realize your only friend
Has never been yourself or anyone who cared in the end
And you wake up to see all your dreams have been compromised
Our standard of living somehow got stuck on survive
That's when suddenly everything fades or falls away
Cause the chains which once held us are only the chains which we've
Made
We sacrifice our pride, compromised our health
We must demand more, not of each other, but more from ourselves

Cause when you're standing in deep water
And you're bailing yourself out with a straw
When you're drowning in deep water
And you wake up making love to a wall
Well it's these little times that help to remind
It's nothing without love
Love, love, it's nothing without love
It's nothing without loveback to top
What's Simple Is True
Turn to me with frozen lips
Your hands are so icy cold
Your eyes burn bright against the frost-bit sky
You never seemed more lovely than you do tonight
Pale on the horizon
Like leaves frozen in the snow
Our two shadows merge inserparably
Will time stand still if it's pierced with cold?
The more I live
The more I know
What's simple is true
I love you
There's a warmth in my heart
It haunts me when you're gone
Mend me to your side and never let go
Say time knows nothing, we'll never grow cold
The more I live
The more I know
What's simple is true
I love you
Twilight descends on our silhouette
How soon spring comes
How soon spring forgets
I wanna hold time, say it'll never begin
Old man winter be our friend
Old man winter be our friend
'cause the more I live
The more I know
What's simple is true
What's simple is true
I love,
I love youback to top

Kiss the Flame
Please love, lets make no impartial vow
Let it all fall away
That's not crucial now
I want a brave love
One that makes me weak in the knees
I want a crazy,crazy love
One that makes me come undone at the seams

I'm tired of all these pilgrims
These puritans, these thieves
Of all the unbelievers
Who wittle love down at the knees
Let these swift roads destroy themselves
Let the world fall into it's sleep
For we shall be spared
We shall be left standing
To face what's left of concrete & honey

Kiss the flame
Let's run with the hunted the untamed
Kiss the flame
Let's embrace the faceless the unamed
Kiss the flame

There are nightmares on the sidewalk
There are jokes on tv
There are people selling thoughtless with such casuality
Oh where for art thou, romeo?
Where've all the brave men gone?
Show me one man who knows his own heart
To him I will belong

Kiss the flame
Let's run with the hunted the untamed
Kiss the flame
Let's embrace the faceless the unamed
Kiss the flameback to top
Down So Long
The sun sets across the ocean
I'm a thousand miles from anywhere
And my pocketbook and my heart
Both just got stolen
And the sun acts like
She don't even care
The wind blows cold
When you reach the top
Feels like someone's face
Is stuck to the bottom of my shoe
I got a plastic jesus
And a cordless telephone
For every corner of my room
Got everybody but you
Telling me what to do

But I've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
I've been down so long
That the end must be drawing near

I look to everybody but me
To answer my prayers
Until I saw an angel
In a bathroom
Who said she saw no one
Worth saving anywhere
And a blind man on the corner
Said, it's simple,
Like flipping a coin
Don't matter what side it lands on
If it's someone else's dime

But I've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down for so long
That the end must be drawing near

I take a trip
I catch a train
I catch a plane
I got a ticket in my hand
And then a fat man takes my money
And like cattle we all stand

But we've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down so long
The end must be...
I know the end must be...
Oh, I know the end must be
Drawing nearback to top
Innocence Maintained
Ophelia drowned in the water
Crushed by her own weight
And hitler loved little blue-eyed boys
And it drove him to hate.
Birds always grow silent before the night descends
Cause nature has a funny way of breaking what does not bend

A hero's torso built of steel and novicane
His heart a bitter beat inside a bloodless frame
There was a hole inside his soul
A manicure could not fill
So he found himself a whore to love
While daisies choked on the windowsill

We've made houses for hatred
It's time we make a place where
People's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other these fragile flames
Innocence can't be lost it just needs to be maintained

A small town in ohio, 2 boys are filled with violence
As night in the darkness spreads it's legs for hate and ignorance.
We are given to a God to put his faith therein
But to be forgiven we must first believe in sin.

We've made houses for hatred
It's time we make a place where
People's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other these fragile flames
Innocence can't be lost it just needs to be maintained

Strange current pulling, a sleepless ebb and flow.
Me, I drift sideways, and you, I don't know.
I want to live bravely and love without fear.
I want to always feel the wings of great near.
We all will be christed when we hear ourselves say
We are that to which we pray.

We've made houses for hatred
It's time we make a place where
People's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other these fragile flames
Innocence can't be lost it just needs to be maintained.back to top
Jupiter
Venus demilo
In her half-baked shell
Understood the nature
Of love very well
She said, a good love is delicious
You can't get enough too soon
It makes you so crazy
You want to swallow the moon

Oh-oh, oh-oh, jupiter
Oh-oh, oh-oh, be still my little heart
Oh-oh, oh-oh, love is a flame
Neither timid nor tame

Take these stars from my crown
Let the years fall down
Lay me out in firelight
Let my skin feel the night
Fasten me to your side
And say it'll be soon
You make me so crazy, baby
Could swallow the moon

My hands are two travelers
They've crossed oceans and lands
But they are too small
On the continent of your skin
And wandering, wandering
I could spend my life
Traveling the length
Of your body each night

Oh-oh, oh-oh, jupiter
Oh-oh, oh-oh, be still my little heart
Oh-oh, oh-oh, love is a flame
Neither timid nor tame

Take these stars from my crown
Let the years fall down
Lay me out in firelight
Let my skin feel the night
Fasten me to your side
And say it'll be soon
You make me so crazy, baby
Could swallow the moon
Swallow the moon

Oh-oh, oh-oh, jupiter
Oh-oh, oh-oh, be still my little heart
Oh-oh, oh-oh, love is a flame
Neither timid nor tame

Take these stars from my crown
Let the years fall down
Lay me out in firelight
Let my skin feel the night
Fasten me to your side
And say it'll be soon
You make me so crazy, baby
Could swallow the moon
Swallow the moon
Swallow the moon
Swallow the moonback to top
Fat Boy
Fat boy
Goes to the pool
Sees his reflection
Doesn't know what to do
He feels little inside
And filed with pride

Oh, fragile flame
When no one sees the same

Fat boy
Goes about his day
Trying to think of funny
Things to say
Like, this is just a game I play,
And I like me this way.

Oh, fragile flame
When no one feels the same

Hush, sleep
Don't think
Just eat
You're daddy's little boy
You're momma's pride and joy
You know they love ya
But not because they hold ya

And fat boy says
Wouldn't it be nice?
If I could melt myself like ice
Or outrun my skin
And just be pure wind?

Oh, fragile flame
Sometimes I feel the sameback to top
Enter from the East
I went out a'wandering
Beneathe an unknown dky
The heavens all shook violently
He caught my eyes

Strange foot fell
It struck me to the core
My heart became a single flame
It wanted nothing more

Stranger, enter from the east
Stranger, step inside this place

Oh, I'm lonely
All lonely

The clock became a bullet hole
Cruel and unking
It hurt me with it's second hand
Alone another night

Stranger, enter from the east
Stranger, step inside this place

Blue, is that you (? ? ? )
Knocking on my door this time
Blue, only true for someone else
There's no room inside this heart of mine
My heart has four empty rooms
Three wait for lightning
And one waits for you

I must have you all to myself
Feel the full weight of your skin
I'll hollow out my insides
To place you in

Stranger, enter from the east
Stranger, step inside this place

Oh, I'm lonely
All lonely

Ohhhh.....

Barcelona
Barcelona
Where the winds all blew
The churches don't have windows
But the graveyards do
Me and my shadow
Are wrestling again
Look out stranger
There's a dark cloud moving in

But if you could hear
The voice in my heart
It would tell you
I'm afraid I am alone

Won't somebody please
Hold me, release me
Show me the meaning of mercy
Let me loose
Fly, let me fly
Let me fly

Super paranoid
I'm blending, I'm blurring
I'm bleeding
Into the scenery
Loving someone else
Is so much easier
But I hold myself hostage
In the mirror

But if you could hear
The voice in my heart
It would tell you
I'm tired of feeling this way

God, won't you please
Hold me, release me
Show me the meaning of mercy
Let me loose
Let me fly
Let me fly
Let me fly

I won't be held down
I won't be held back
I will lead with my faith

The red light
Has been following me
But don't worry mother
It's no longer my gravity

Hold me, release me
Show me the meaning of mercy
Let me fly
Let me fly
Let me flyback to top
Life Uncommon
Don't worry mother
It'll be alright
And don't worry sister
Say your prayers and sleep tight
And it'll be fine
Lover of mine
It'll be just fine

And lend your voices only
To sounds of freedom
No longer lend your strength
To that which you wish
To be free from
Fill your lives
With love and bravery
And you shall lead
A life uncommon

I've heard your anguish
I've heard your hearts cry out
We are tired, we are weary
But we aren't worn out
Set down your chains
Until only faith remains
Set down your chains

And lend your voices only
To sounds of freedom
No longer lend your strength
To that which you wish
To be free from
Fill your lives
With love and bravery
And we shall lead
A life uncommon

There are plenty of people
Who pray for peace
But if praying were enough
It would've come to be
Let your words enslave no one
And the heavens will hush themselves
To hear our voices ring our clear
With sounds of freedom
Sounds of freedom

Come on you unbelievers
Move out of the way
There is a new army coming
And we are armed with faith
To live, we must give
To live

And lend our voices only
To sounds of freedom
No longer lend our strength
To that which we wish
To be free from
Fill your lives
With love and bravery
And we shall lead...

And lend our voices only

Do You
Hey you say you like the way
The cowboys tip their hats and say
How's it goin', ma'am?
But you're never quite clear
If their glares are sincere
Or really only just second hand
To you it's all roses
It's a lavender haze
The man is a marvel
It's a shame about his brains
But that's okay you say,
He's got straight teeth
And it's good sex

You look to the sky
You look to the man
You claim innocence
And not to understand
Or do you?
Do you?

There's a big man wearing a white suit
And patent leather shoes
He wants to take his monkeys
To see the kids at the zoo
Cause the gypsy on the corner said,
Hey, mister, you can't lose
And it's your first day at the track
You feel that heat on your back
We all want to find a way
To beat the system
Find some rhythm in the madness

Get down on your knees and pray
Say, I'll do whatever you want, god
Just let me have my way
Well will you?
Will you?

Come on all you merry men
Rally your cry
Dance with the devil
For tomorrow we'll surely
Hey, hey, blow the men down

You with all your cigarettes
And cool stares
Filled with blank glares
And loaded regrets
Just like the girls today
With nothing to say
No more pigtails and pony rides
They're sophisticated
They sip on lattes and have their eyes
On a bigger prize

We shake our fists and say
Well, good golly we're mad
That God kills children
With our very own hands
We claim innocence
And not to understand
Or do we?
Do we?

Come on all you merry men
Rally your cry
Dance with the devil
For tomorrow we'll surely
Hey, hey, blow the men down
Blow the men down
Hey, heyback to top
