The Prize
The night of a thousand verses
One thousand friends said have you heard
What we expected

We are all working late and
Waiting to win a prize we don't deserve
And live to collect it

Can't you see I'm weary
Maybe this news can wait

The night of a thousand verses
One thousand strivers strain to hear
A voice that's left us

And the magazines still have to sell us
Twelve mastergeniuses a year
It's all so shameless

Can't you see I'm weary
Maybe this news can wait

Can't you see I'm blurry
Maybe this news can wait

Maybe there was a message in it
I don't know where you hid it
Maybe there was a piece that will fit
I don't know where to fit it

Tell me what kind of prize can you get
Where you don't want to win it?

Can't you see I'm weary
Maybe this news can wait

Can't you see I'm blurry
Maybe this blues can wait.back to top
Brand New Baby
Time you needed time out of the mainstream
Out on your only
Alone to find yourself somehow

So I'm a bit surprised to see you lately
Beside a brand new baby
But if it makes you happy now

I guess that's great
I guess you're not mine
Brand new baby beside you now oh yeah

I guess that's great
You don't see me cryin'
And there's nobody to slow you down oh yeah

If you're feeling sorry try to contain it
You don't need to save me
Don't waste your pity anyhow

And you might like to believe I'm devastated
To see you with your brand new baby
Well if it makes you happy nowi guess that's great
I guess you're not mine
Brand new baby beside you now oh yeah

I guess that's great
You don't see me cryin'
And there's nobody to slow you down

Seen you with your brand new baby
Sure it fazes me just to hear you laughing
Makes me just a little crazy but I guess it's a great thing
If it makes you happy nowback to top
In the Veins
Red is the ocean which we ride
Carried along on a changing tide
Blind, blind rage and pure delight
Running in the current side by side
(waiting for whatever we haven't tried)
Baby it's amazing all the things a self contains

Peace is in the veins, in the veins
Be careful what you put in there
Be careful what you put in there

Heaven transcendence angels fly
Anger and vengance, blue, blue sky
All injected from the mind
Down in the liquid world combined
(and your prescription has been signed)
Search the wild green outside and inside is what remains

Peace is in the veins, in the veins
Be careful what you put in there
Be careful what you put in there

Wide open world there is no mind without you
And a little bit is not enough
Wide open mind divine the world about you
And a little more is not enough
And a little more is not enoughback to top
Wishing Well
Last night I dreamed of falling
Down a wishing well.
No one could hear me calling
From where I fell.

And from above the ground
I could faintly hear
The world and all her sounds
Songs, vows, playgrounds, tears.

I fell in a wishing well
Now the damage is done
And who, who have I become?

Not even angels saw me
From tall starry skies.
And then a searchlight shone upon me
Bright in my eyes.

For all this time I prayed
You might come around.
Now stranger I'm afraid
I might call you down.

I fell in a wishing well
Now the damage is done
And who, who have I become?

I'm through with my dream come true.
Then it's just begun
And who, who have I become?

Opened my eyes and woke up twice this morning
Lately getting up has only got me down.
Maybe there's a place where I can live again
Never leave the ground.

I fell in a wishing well
Now the damage is done
(Now the damage is done)
And who, who have I become?

I'm through with my dream come true
And it's just begun.
Who, who have I become?back to top
Star
I wandered in the moonlight
A ghost without a friend
All around the starlight found are lost and wounded men.
I know that I did some damage
I wanted to be home again
So I waited for a star my soul to mend
I waited for a star my soul to mend.

She came a long way to love me
And I'm tasting her spark
She came a long way to kiss me
Now my lips are wet
I know that I don't deserve it
But I want to hear her sigh
And I want to stay here forever in her light
I want to stay forever in her light.

Star you're a beautiful sight
Bring me you lovely light
I'll be a satellite, satellite.
Star you're a beautiful sight
Bring me you lovely light
I'll be a satellite, satellite.

And there's a dark crater space in heaven
And I might want you to shine
And there's a bright little place in my head
And darkness blows my mind
I can lie on my back and wonder
Why I've been treated so fine
And make love to her while we have tonight
I'll make love to her while we have tonight.

Star you're a beautiful sight
Bring me you lovely light
I'll be a satellite, satellite.
Star you're a beautiful sight
Bring me you lovely light
I'll be a satellite, satellite.
I'll be a satellite, satellite,
I'll be a satellite, satellite.back to top
Sculpture Garden
Twilight in the sculpture garden
When we walk around the place
Look upon the beautiful secrets
That all the artists' made.

How fast the light has faded
And we still wanna stay
Turn down the noise in the city
The dark downtown parade.

At night they turn the water on around the artworks
In the garden, In the garden.

Midnight in the sculpture garden
Underneath the cherry moon
We can make our own beautiful secret
We can join the fabled few.

Starlight in the sculpture garden
With a stainless steel balloons
Rose petal vermillion breezes
I beieve the artists knew.

At night they turn the water on around the artworks
In the garden, In the gardenback to top
The Gift
It's a hurting desire strong and sweet
Memory so pretty I can hardly say
You thought I was sleeping as you walked to the street
You gave what you wanted then you went away

Did you mean what you did
Would you give it again
What you gave as a gift

I went on a mission to the town where you lived
Dark, dusty places you've not seen in awhile
I want to seek the basements where you hid
I want to see your face as a little child

Did you mean what you did
Would you give it again
What you gave as a giftback to top
