Les paroles

1. EYES WIDE OPEN

Eyes wide open,
It's taking hold of my life
Words unspoken,
Rumours cut like a knife

Walk a mile in my shoes
Then tell me, what do you see?

It's high treason,
Open season on my life
Pour my heart out
Would that help to suffice?

Walk a mile in my shoes
Tell me, how would you feel?

Clowns and reformers
Trap my words in a noose
Double dealing
Radar scanning for the truth


2. DREAMS OUTTA DUST

Now that we're through
I guess you'll be leaving
To pastures new.
Well, I won't be grieving

Light outta darkness,
Dreams outta dust
Knowing that you
Sold out my trust

Well, I can't be part of that tragedy
Knowing that you're so wrong for me

I'm never through
Through with believing
Seems that it's true
You were deceiving

Light outta darkness,
Dreams outta dust
Lucky in life
If not in love

Well, I can't be a part of this tragedy,
'Cause you and I were never meant to be.


3. HEALING GROUND

They're telling me if I believe
They'll pull the evil out of me
Gonna set my spirit free
Down at the healing ground

Cure me with a snake bite
Something ain't feeling right
Blood in the moonlight
Down at the healing ground

Have I really gone this wrong?
Do I really need a shot this strong?
Can salvation be found?
Down at the healing ground?

They don't know the shape I'm in
Drowning in a sea of sin
Will I die and be born again
Down at the healing ground?


4. STEAM DOWN

Going down to Steam Town
Gonna lay my money down.
Going down to Steam Town
It's like that big hole in the ground

Punch-drunk and restless
I got some bills to burn
We came down from the Pocono Mountains
Too late to take a U-turn

We talked a lot of nonsense
As we urged each other on
We didn't heed the one true constant -
The party looked like a bomb

Meet me at the station
I'll be waiting at track number nine
We can make it to New York City
By just about supper time


5. LOOSE CHANGE

Money can't buy it
The love I have to give
You can't deny it
It's my kiss that you miss
Love, let's be patient, one day soon

Memories haunt me and I ask myself why
They tease me and taunt me
Since we said, said goodbye
I'm living a new life from now on

After we parted
It all came so clear
I looked and I counted
The sum of my fears

With memories like loose change
In the palm of my hand,
Can't let you escape from me now
There is no way, now how

I feel like that loose change
And I can't understand
There is no way, no how
I'm living a new life from now on

These memories haunt me and I ask myself why
Money can't buy it, all the love that you give.


6. SURFING A SLOW WAVE

(Intrumental)


7. SLIME TIME

There's a long night ahead
Noise enough to wake the dead
Then you and I can cut loose
Gonna show you where I roost

A world gone mad
Slime time on the news
Politics of fear
Shortening the fuse

Yes, I've grown weary, so very weary
(Take this) weight off my shoulders

Get to questioning my sanity
Don't need them to check my integrity
Can't be blind to my vanity
With friends like these, well, who needs enemies?

When I'm wracked with the pain,
Been nearly driven insane,
I reach for you in the night,
Make the load seem light

You raise my kundalini
Never been more in tune with my fantasies
It's a revelation,
The new infatuation

Yes, I've grown weary, so very weary
(Take this) weight off my shoulders

Get to questioning my sanity
Don't need them to check my validity
Can't be blind to, yes, my vanity
With friends like these, well, who needs enemies?

We're all part of a manifest destiny
I'm down on pushing this corporate identity
There'll never be a need for their indemnity
As long as there's blacktop right in front of me
Never been more in tune with your energy.


8. CAPTURE THE MOMENT

Savour the moment as you take your first breath of the day
Capture that moment with no thoughts to intrude in your way
Go with the feeling; don't be scared to strike out on your own
All your spells and your potions will protect you from feeling alone

All you aspire to, all will be there for you

The illusion of freedom is what gets us through the night
Rebirth and renewal are the lessons of all that's right
Stay in that sweet spot, let the fear and the loathing slide by
Capture the moment as you ready yourself to fly


9. YOUR DOG

Now that I can be, once and finally
All that you want me to be,
Not so sure that it serves me well
The person you want me to be

Lovers need to be free from tyranny
As they're working it through
Took some time for the mist to clear
It may take time for you

Feel I'm left with an open wound
Not made the best of my time
The break was made not a moment too soon
I must be cruel to be kind

Lovers need to react with empathy
As they're working it through
Leaving time for some tea and sympathy,
Something we did not do

Can't be your dog, your fool,
Your crutch, your tool
Am I able to make myself clear?
Damned if I do or don't,
Bend to your will, I won't
We never made anything clear

Lovers should trust each other equally,
Respect all that they do
Find the space to live and let live,
Something we did not do


10. THE RAVEN

As the night falls all around me, black as the raven,
I am silently waiting for sleep to come
Through the doors of perception
I am gliding swiftly to dreams beyond them

I am not alone
I have never felt a bond so strong
You're by my side
Gave all your love to guide me there

I have no fear
I'm not afraid to turn my face to the light
It's a fine threaded line around my pillow
Holds me safe through the darkness till the raven flies

When I'm torn and helpless
And drawn to the dark side
I have only to feel you
And the raven flies

You're by my side
Gave all your love to guide me there
I'm not afraid to turn my face to the light.


11. MOTHERLESS CHILD

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone
Sometimes I feel like I don't have a friend
I'm a long way from home
