1. THE EVERLASTING GAZE

You know I'm not dead
You know I'm, you know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead

Now you know where I've been
As you sleep, torn I am
Waited down, patiently
Born of love

You know I'm, you know I'm not dead
I'm just living in my head
Forever waiting on the ways of your desire
You always find your way
And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch
Forbidden thought
We can never have enough

You know I'm not dead
You know I'm, you know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead

Found below, the creatures scream
Stranglehold of god machines
Begin to tear us out
What is hell

You know I'm, you know I'm not dead
I'm just the tears inside your head
Forever waiting on the ways of your desire
You always find your way
And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch
Forbidden thought
We can never have enough
You know I'm not dead

We all want to hold in the everlasting gaze
Enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway
But underneath the wheels lie the skulls of every cog
The fickle fascination of an everlasting god

You know I'm not dead
I'm just living in my head
Forever waiting
Forever waiting a cruel death
You know I'm not dead
I'm just living for myself
Forever waiting

You know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead


2. RAIN DROPS & SUN SHOWERS

Rain falls on everyone
The same old rain
And I'm just trying to walk with you
Between the raindrops

I send my echo out
To get your love with poem
Obscures reflections of
My love

Rain falls on everyone
The same old rain
And I'm just trying to walk with you
Between the raindrops

I'll save a prayer for you
So lost and longing too
Bleach shared through dirty streaks
Wrapped up in clean white sheets
And if you think they'll watch you now
You should know they won't

Rain falls on everyone
The same old rain
And I'm just trying to walk with you
Between the raindrops
And I'm just trying to walk with you
Between the raindrops

I send my echo out
To get your love with poem
Obscure reflections of
Of my secret power
Force down the wings of god
To get your love with poem
Obscure reflections of my love

And I'm just trying to talk to you
Between the raindrops
Rain falls on everyone
The same old rain
And I'm just trying to walk with you
Between the raindrops
Rain falls on everyone
The same old rain
And I'm just trying to walk with you
Between the raindrops
And I'm just trying to walk with you
Between the raindrops


3. STAND INSIDE YOUR LOVE

You and me
Meant to be
Immutable
Impossible
It's destiny
Pure lunacy
Incalculable
Inseparable

And for the last time
You're everything that I want and asked for
You're all that I dream

Who wouldn't be the one you love
Who wouldn't stand inside your love
Protected and the lover of

A pure soul
And beautiful
You
Don't understand
Don't fear me now
I will breath
For the both of us
Travel the world
Traverse the skies
Your home is here
Within my heart

And for the first time
I feel as though I am reborn in my mind
Recast as child and mystic sage

Who wouldn't be the one you love
Who wouldn't stand inside your love

For the first time
I'm telling you how much I need and bleed for
Your every move and waking sound in my time
I'll wrap my wrap my wire around your heart
And your mind
You're mine forever now

Who wouldn't be the one you love and live for
Who wouldn't stand inside your love and die for
Who wouldn't be the one you love


4. I OF THE MOURNING

Radio, play my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, I'm alone
Radio
Radio, please don't go
Radio

I peer through curtains on empty streets
Behind a wall of color writing
No one's out there
To hear if I care
About the troubles in the air

Cause I of the mourning now go
Pick up where my thoughts left off
Cause I'm home to die on my own

As my radio plays my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, don't you know
Radio, radio
Radio, I'm alone

I've blown the dust off my guitar
In the attic with the stars
I read your letters to feel better
My tears upon the faded ink

Cause I of the mourning now go
Pick up where my thoughts left off
Cause I'm home to die on my own

As my radio plays my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, I'm alone
Radio, radio
Radio, please don't go

I sit in the dark light
To wait for ghost night
To bring the past to life
To make a toast to life
Cause I have survived

What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want to change

Radio, radio, radio, radio
Radio, radio, radio, radio
Radio, radio, radio, radio

What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want to change


5. THE SACRED AND PROFANE

Give me tears
Give me love
Let me rest
Let up on
Send the bored
Your restless
The feedback-scarred
Devotionless

You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
In the sun
You're all a part of me now
You're all a part of me now

Will love ever be enough
Just in time to prove
Will words ever be enough
Just in time to lose

Give me signs
That arrest
It could snow
And happiness
Give me time
Give me peace
And I will prove
My release

You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
In the sun
You're all a part of me now
You're all a part of me now

Will love ever be enough
Just in time to prove
Will time ever be enough
Will love ever be enough

You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
In the sun
You're all a part of me now
You're all a part of me now
You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
In the sun
You're all a part of me now

Will love ever be enough
Will love ever be enough
Will love ever be enough
Just in time to prove


6. TRY, TRY, TRY

Talk talk
What's our mission
Do we know
Would never listen
For too long
They held me under
But out here
It's almost over
In detroit
On our memphis train
Like you said

It's down in the heat and the summer rain
Or the automatic galls of your memories
Down in the sleep at the airplane races

Try to hold on
For this heart
A little bit longer
Try to hold on
For this love
Alone
Try to hold on
For this heart
A little bit colder
Try to hold on
For this love

Paperback scroll your hidden poem
Written around the dried out flowers
Here we are still trading places
Try to hold on

Talk talk
Can you envision
A free world
Of clear devision
For too long
They held us under
But I know
We're getting over
In Detroit
With the Nashville tears
Like you said

It's down in the heat with the broken numbers
Down in the gaze of solemnity
Down in the way you held together

You try to hold on
To this heart
A little bit closer
Try to hold on
For this love
Alone
Try to hold on
For this heart
A little bit older
Try to hold on
For this love
Alone

And we are still alive
Try to hold on
And we are still alive
Try to hold on
And no one should deny
We try to hold on
To the pulse of a feedback car
And into the flower, the cryptic movement
Slipback kills the ancient remnants
That try to hold on

Try to hold on
To this heart
Alive
Try to hold on
To this love
Alone
Try to hold on
And we are still alone
Try to hold on
And we are still alive
Try to hold on
Talk talk
You never listen
Skin need
Try to hold on
Stop stop
What's our mission
Skin need
Try to hold on


7. HEAVY METAL MACHINE

If I were alive
If I were real
Would you survive
What would you feel

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
As sentimental as our broken dreams

Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die to save so soul
Let me die, let me die rock and roll
Let the word forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the poison lies
Let me go, let me go rock and roll

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
When they're metal, in their metal machines
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

If I were dead
Would my records sell
Could you even tell
Is it just as you hope

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
It's all our mental, to all the once stiff wings
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die and save my soul
Let me go, let me go rock and roll
Let the word forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the poison lies
Let me go, let me die rock and roll

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
When they're metal, and they're trying an excuse
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

Will I survive
Is it up to me
Could you understand
That it's not yours to keep

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine


8. THIS TIME

This time I need to know
I really must be told
If it's over
It's up to you, you know
The things you want to hold
Are in pieces

Crashing down
Crashing down again
Crashing down
Crashing down my friends

I've got to move it on
I've got to sing my song
While I still can
Dispatch the last alarms
And of the last few shards
They're still surprising

Only love
Only love can win
Crashing down
Crashing down again

Only love, yeah
Only love will win
Crashing down
Crashing down again

This time I need to know
I really must be told
That it's over
I've lived my life alone
My every step fortold
To never linger
And yet it haunts me so
What are we letting go
The spell is broken

Crashing down
Crashing down my friend
Crashing down
Crashing down again

Only love, yeah
Only love will be enough, yeah
Only love will win

For every chemical
You trade a piece of your soul
You know me time
And who you think you know
Doesn't know you at all
Portrayed as needless

Someday we'll wave hello
And wish we'd never waved goodbye
To those brown eyes
We'll drink up every line
And shoot up everyone
Until it's no more

Crashing down
Crashing down my friends
Only love
Only love can win

So cry these tears
We'll cry is all
We've held so long
To fall apart
As the curtain falls
We bid you all goodnight


9. THE IMPLODING VOICE

Everywhere you are
Is everywhere you've been
Just lost to the beat
Punching through your skin
You don't know what to do
But still you wanna crawl
All through the broken glass
That's everywhere you are

Your love must always be true
Your love must always be you

Everywhere you are
Anywhere you go
Even if you're a star
It matters what you do
But if even if you've gone too far
You can follow you
Everywhere you are

And in your mind
You were alone
All this time
With everything you are
And every smile you are
Still locked in your heart
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Every single shot

Everywhere you are
You're never too far
Cause anywhere you go
Even to the stars
All you have to do
Is play the part of who you are
The rest is up to you

Save someone
Apply yourself
Everyone
On the shelf
Love's a fight
Born so light
You may shine

Everywhere you are
And everywhere you go
Even if you're down
Even if you're low
It's in the thought of you
It's in the eyes of all
Astride a starry past
That's everywhere you are

Your love must always be true
Your love must always be you

Everywhere you are
Anywhere you go
Even if you're a star
It's all a part of you
Whatever shoe you're putting down
You can never lose me

Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are
Everywhere you are


10. GLASS AND THE GHOST CHILDREN

To the center of the earth
Or anywhere god decides
For the fever pulling forth
We hear our call is all

And to the center of the earth
As if written in
And DNA is regenomed
To your frequency

I want to live
And don't want to die
I want to live
I want to try

All in prayer
Prayer ends all
All are scared
Scared of love

Black room are calling
To men in leather coats
White labs are cooking
Up the silver golds
The glass migrates under
A translucent skin
And all the spiders wonder
What we've got us in

All is you
You are all
All with you
You ends all

I want to live
I don't want to die
I want to live
I want to try


So, it's all very obtuse
Because it's all like, like, I don't know
So, like, I started thinking
That everything I operate on
Is based on what I believe god was telling me to do
God could be my intuition or whatever
But I always assume
I always assume that the voice I hear is the voice of god
Then I started thinking
What if I'm insane
So I'm operating on the premise that I'm hearing the voice of god
Or what I perceive to be god speaking to me or through me
But maybe I'm completly in...
So all my...
Demagoguery in my life about me thinking that my life has importance
My, my..
Thinking that my life has importance
My, my, my thought of it
And the fact that I believe that I'm following my intuition
Which in and of itself may be completely false
So then I started freaking out thinking...
Of itself may be completely false
And again this creature that believes that he's acting upon
Heavenly intuition, but meanwhile he's totally rampant
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against...
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against...
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against...


So meets the final coda
Of our vinyl storm
One more cherry cola
To lift up our dead arms
A dream of soft-focused sunsets
Filters through the din
We are losing contact
As she dials it in
She can hear glass callin'
Or is it someone that looks like him
She eyes tv reflection
And nods a knowing look
She says it doesn't matter
She'd never liked her looks
I have seen a thousand fractures
I have seen everything
Cause knowing is its own answer
Love something in a book
There's not much left to ponder
Not much left to cook
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders, oh


11. WOUND

There you are
As you always were
You bathe in life
And naked blur
You're a part of me
Eternal wound
My grand desire
In the setting sun

If you wait, I will wait
Taste, I will taste
If you love, I will love
Run, I will run
To my last breath

Last night I turned around and thought I saw myself turning
Inside the strangest dream of life I loved and cities burning

Awake in my arms
You crying harm
A rage of the hours
When they still devour her all

So take it on
I doubted we
Will know it's gone
Cause we've been here
Since time began
They got away
And make these plans

Room opens
Reveal this broken man
Assume these notions
With blood on his hands

If you wait, i will wait
Taste, I will taste
If you love, I will love
Run, I will run
To my last breath

Last night I turned around, I thought I saw myself turning
Last night I turned around and thought I watched the world ending
Inside the crushing I felt the pain, the tide was turning

Destroyed in the way
The jealous and greats
Will tear this world down
To spite god over
With his own love
With his own love
If you wait
If you wait

If you wait, I will wait
Taste, I will taste
If you love, I will love
Run, I will run
To my last breath


12. THE CRYING TREE OF MERCURY

This is the song I've been singing my whole life
I've been waiting like a knife
To cut open your heart
And bleed my soul to you
I did it all for you
You and you and you and you

This is the sound I've been making my whole life
I've been waiting for this night
To clear up all the tar
Although I'm selfish to a form
Is it selfish, it's you I warn
You, I did it all for you

This love will stand as long as you
There's really no excuse
I did it all for you

These are the tears I've been crying my whole life
Like an ocean of desire
I'm reaching through the noise
Across the dust of time
Within the limited lights
I am singing out to you


13. WITH EVERY LIGHT

Taking over, we're taking over
Throw the weight up off your shoulders, now
Now that we can show our love
It's almost over, it's almost over
No more war and no more soldiers
To stand against his love

Away with all the troubles that you've made
Away with waiting for another day
Away

Look ma, the sun is shining on me
Impatient, in love, and aching to be
Could you believe in heaven
If heaven was all you had

Taking over, we're taking over
Throw away your four-leaf clovers
And stand beside this love

Away with everything you've grown to hate
Away with anything that holds you safe
Away

And every light I've found
Is every light that's shining down on me
Every light I've found
Is every light that's shining down on me
Every light I've found
Is every light that's shining down on me
I'm never alone

Look ma, the sun is shining on me
Taking my time to do as I please
Could you believe in heaven
If heaven was all you had

The sun beaming, radiating
All the love we are creating
We are creating

And every light I've found
Is every light that's shining down on me
Every light I've found
Is every light that's shining down on me
Every light I've found
Is every light that's shining down on me
Every light I've found
Is every light that's shining down on me
I'm never alone


14. BLUE SKIES BRING TEARS

Unleash the armageddon
So all the children go to heaven
I sit by quiet still
With their pictures on my eyes
You'll draw the guns your given
Write down the words as written
And never disturb the presense
Of resurrection touch

And it's about time
It's about drawing near
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears

Descend the darkened stairway
Make hate with plastic playmates
And fire out remaining traces
Of your self esteem
Mainline the deepest secrets
Lick clean the dirty fingers
I am a stranger to you
As you are to yourself

And it's about time
It's about fear
Blue skies bring tears
Don't you want me (don't want you)
Cause I await cityside
We'll watch the seas start to die

Blue skies bring tears
Take me inside your body
Blue skies bring tears
Cover me with your soul
Blue skies bring tears
To the darkest reasons
Blue skies bring tears
Is where I wish to go
Blue skies bring tears
You are the sweetest flower
Blue skies bring tears
That I have ever devoured
Blue skies bring tears
I ask for nothing given
Blue skies bring tears
For nothing in return
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears

Blue skies bring tears


15. AGE OF INNOCENCE

We dismiss
The backroads
And ride these streets
Unafraid
Resort to
Scraping pain
From our bones
Unashamed

No more the eye upon you
No more the simple bane

Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have guessed
All is never shown
Desolation yes
Hesitation no

And in my prayer
I dream alone
A silent speach
To deaf ears
If you want be love
You must be love
But if bleed love
You will die love

No more the eye upon you
Catch me starving out of shame

Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have sensed
We won't make it home
Desolation yes
Hesitation no

But for the rites of spring
Come to mean all things
A little taste of what may come
A meer glimpse of what has gone

Cause for the moment we are free
We to find our release
Too young to die, too rich to care
Too fucked to swear that I was there

Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have guessed
We won't make it home
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
