Track Name: Tart
Please, lover, keep my ancient heart.
An age abandoned, sucking sour sweet tarts,
With rotten teeth; stuck in my youth.
Don’t make me brush;
I want my skin to come and brush across you.

Keep me clean. Please keep me safe.
The child in me wants to run,
But, oh, I need your cage.
I lay me down, I hear your breath,
I see the full sun rise and fall
In cycled movements of your chest.

Could you put me in your pocket,
Where the warmth could rest a restless bull?
Could I carry me around with you?
Bare feet on broken glass,
Softened by glue.

Please, lover, lead me where to go;
Stuck on this island,
But there’s still so much I need to know.
I grab the keys, you pick the place.
Let’s go get lost, like B & C,
And never leave a trace.

What you are, oh, my love,
Is something so right it can’t be
Wrong.
Open up your gates
And let the bull run

Oh! You keep me running.
Oh! And I can’t let up.
Oh! Spoil me rotten.
Don’t make me beg.
Track Name: Noise
I bleed for your kind
And stray from the line
And wait for the trust/love of your touch
While sticking to borders you’d never get much

If I could just play God
Shifting shapes to get what I want
If it were just, I’d live in lust
Caught in contention, neck deep in the flood

I want to open up my soul, and let it go, let it go
And spread the flames of a world unknown
If all this noise could be put down
Then I’ll catch my breath, with feet plant to the ground

If I could just play God
Shifting shapes to get what I want
If it were just, I’d live in lust
Caught in contention, neck deep in the flood

This love is bred in blood!
In blood! In blood!

So cold and unreceiving
I told you to be aware of your body’s wealth
You just put out your hand, said “give me gold
I want to see it for myself!”
And I never felt further from you then
My empty pockets preaching of the end
Rolled up and unconvinced
I turned my back, looked towards the skyline
Took a breath, and sank down like a stone

Something’s gotta give, gotta give, gotta give;
My back is gonna break,
The whole lot’ll fall in.

Something’s gotta give, gotta give, gotta give;
This bridge’s gonna break,
The whole lot’ll fall in.

Something’s gotta give, gotta give, gotta give;
Alone in the water,
It pierces my skin.
Track Name: The Danger Song
Speak softly, I’m hardly awake.
Come closer, but please stay away.
I came to in the black frost of March;
Don’t want no poison, I just need to accept my loss.

Sometimes we get these cold iron thoughts,
And I won’t let you take nothing at all.
Although I want to give, I’ve made up my mind,
I’ll let these wicked ways wander—I can walk and take my time.

Do you believe you’re in grave danger,
Or do you feel just like a stranger
Walking from town to town?

And is there something missing in your blood?
Was it taken from the evil ones,
Who look you in the eyes and ask you what you’ve got to prove?

And, later, when you look down on them,
With your glowing eyes of transcendence,
Do you feel you’ve missed your chance to make your final move?

Can you wiggle your way through these chains,
Stay on and play the game,
And ask for what you need?
Or plead?

All you needed was
All you needed was
All you needed was a friend.

All you needed was
All you needed was
All you needed was a hand.

Everywhere you walk
The faces look so drawn and gray.
The twisted smiles
They only draw refrains.

All they needed was
All you needed was
A place to lay your head
Track Name: Red & Mild
Red & mild sky
Makes me feel like I’m the only one.
Red & mild sky
Makes me feel like I’m the only one.

See that sun setting low now;
See those shoes wrapped around the wire.
Feel that gentle wind now.
Feel that simple love come over me.
Come over me.

Red & mild sky,
Take me up. Take me up. Take me up. Pull me in. Pull me in.
Red & mild sky,
All I’ve got is my ten speed bike and my pushing limbs.

Now the low light’s on my world,
And cigarette smoke chimneys through the roof.
Hear the freeway, it’s humming;
All of those headlights’ll go by too soon.
I’ll never meet your faces.
I’ll never understand the grace of your heart.

Oh, and sometimes it feels the world is screaming out.
At times I feel I’m screaming out:
“I want nothing more than this gentle madness;
come over me.”

“It’s all here for you!”
At times I feel the world is screaming out:
“It’s all here for you!”
