Track Name: Take Me Home
minds always change
hide, re-arrange
filtering light
lost to the night
take me home

living to blame
heart to the flame
melting the trees
hell on the breeze
take me home

cannot calculate
the pain that we create
take me back in time
pure of soul & mind

answers are few
tolerance true
face the insane
conjure their shame
take me home

cannot calculate
the pain that we create
take me back in time
pure of soul & mind
Track Name: The Crystal Ship
before you slip into unconsciousness
I'd like to have another kiss
another flashing chance at bliss
another kiss, another kiss

the days are bright and filled with pain
enclose me in your gentle rain
the time you ran was too insane
we'll meet again, we'll meet again

oh tell me where your freedom lies
the streets are fields that never die
deliver me from reasons why
you'd rather cry, I'd rather fly

the crystal ship is being filled
a thousand girls, a thousand thrills
a million ways to spend your time
when we get back, I'll drop a line
Track Name: Words Of The Birds
neuronic traces
satellite chases
summer song graces the time
unwary, half-buried and I'm feeling fine

hypnotic leaf sway
licking the breezeway
divisions betray the sun
battles of shadows take place on her face as she stuns

hunger of younger me mournfully scorned and unsung

self degradation
lacks correlation
hurling tenacious debris
I'm in no hurry to worry I live by the sea

always misreading
things that I'm needing
doomed and receding, I flail
back to the shack where the words of the birds are for sale

hunger of younger me filled by the thrill of the nail
Track Name: Bone And Leather
arriving as mistakes or as wishes
all the same we're tossed like beached fishes
into a world of pain and kisses
trained to measure worth by inches

look at me now I'm the king of my world
up against the wall in the fight of my life
knowing full well what the score will be

friendly souls come and go with the weather
life's a freight train we all ride together
it may lift you like a breeze-born feather
but in the end we're all just bone and leather

the train goes on along infinite rails
history will too one day be ash
all traces gone

the one mistake we make is believing
that questioning the world we're percieving
is folly and would only leave us greiving
in fact it helps prepare us for our leaving

there is no line between here and there
there is no mind on a pedestal
we are all like the rolling sea
Track Name: Message
I got a message for you
omission is the clue
I bet you think it's true
so what can I do
when I have no excuse
I can't abide the noose
you want me to produce
so I'm pushing juice

if you knew what I know
I would feel very low
always been in this battle within
let me out

everyone come and get hip
board the sanctioned ship
give the wheel a grip
surrender your soul
and try not to recall
life outside the wall
before the scripted fall
left you empty and cold

if you knew what I know
I would feel very low
always been in this battle within
let me out
Track Name: Fossil Girl
a mortal flame, tomorrow's seed
the future's yesterday is now
dragging you along with it's safety song of pearl
fossil girl
now is the only thing to hold
so keep the flame
it's the game
don't sleep too long it'll all be over
don't wait too long for the blooming clover

love and dream to sleep and hide
do the primal pillow slide
there is reason here but there's too much mystery
to let it be
so let the cards fill you in
and light the dark
kill the spark
don't sleep too long it'll all be over
don't wait too long for the blooming clover

fossil girl you better run
find the secrets of the sun
fossil girl you better run
and have your fun
Track Name: Why Mother Sky
night begins this evening
always time for leaving
summer bench seat panic
for the death mechanic

why cry, why mother sky

driving through the cages
nothing's changed for ages
cannot get connection
only self-ingestion

why cry, why mother sky

nothing here to try on
just enough to cry on
giving fate the roger
mercy for the lodger

why cry, why mother sky
