Track Name: Kings & Queens
And if I need to say I’m sorry for leaving all of you behind
I’ll be going to have this party soon, just if everyone’s alright
Can’t I sing you a happy song when I’m through with singing at your heart
I’ll be waiting inside my palace in diamonds playing up my part

Oh...
The stars have gone, they’ll be back, in time for my song
You know
We’re not alone, but it feels that way, once they’ve gone

And if I need to say I’m sorry for passing in my broken hand
What will we do when all the stars have gone back to hiding in the sand
Clouds will fall to the forest floors and the deer will run for miles to die
Kings will cry and the queens to battle the diamonds playing start to cry

Oh...
The stars have gone, they’ll be back, in time for my song
You know
We’re not alone, but it feels that way, once they’ve gone
Track Name: Angel Animal
i was there
when you were dying
i never saw your face

and every night
the air is colder
the animals come out

whenever animals come out
i am there to listen till the end

i was there
to hear you crying
i held you in my arms

you were weak
i held closer
the animals came out

whenever animals come out
i am there to listen till the end

they licked your ears
dried up your tears
then slept upon your shoulder

and you were free
to beside me
the animals will know
Track Name: My Way Home
Never dark
Never cold
I found light in the heart of my soul

Always lost
Always found
I would die with my family around

Heart of gold
We agree
Swim away through the waves in the sea

Steady mind
Stay with you
I need a friend just to watch what I do

My lady all my way home
Iron lady over where I roam

No way
You know
Lit up with a fiery glow

Said one
My friend
Sit here with you till the end

In art
End war
We push with our ears to the door

Sometimes
We cry
When to laugh would be too hard to try

My lady all my way home
Iron lady over where I roam
Track Name: To The Dogs
when i was growing up just a little naked child
my mama was a singer in the gypsy band wild
now i been placed, now i been thrown to the race again

and every time i fight every time i struggle
i know i've seen the worst of this big old puzzle
now i been placed, now i've been thrown to the dogs again
the dogs again

after all my words
i was going back for more
no one drove the hearse
i was walking out the door (x2)

when i was in the circus just a couple days ago
my mind was never worried the sky was gonna snow
now i've been placed now i've been thrown to the race again

now listen

the fire is a ablaze inside the very city of
love and understanding and every ones just watching
because they've been placed
because they've been thrown to the dogs again
the dogs again

after all my words
i was going back for more
no one drove the hearse
i was walking out the door (x2)
Track Name: 8 Foot Tall Blues
My baby’s a giant, 8 foot tall and long black hair
My baby’s a giant, said 8 foot tall and long black hair
When I wanna kiss her, I gotta climb to get up there

And when we fighting, she could squeeze the life outta’ me
Yeah when we fighting, she could squeeze the life outta’ me
I gotta be careful, to stay alive, oh can’t you see

I love that woman, though she’s tall and giant size
I love that woman, though she’s tall and giant size
All you other boys need some more, there’s more for me, in just her eyes
Track Name: Pointed Like Bullets
carry diamonds in your pockets nobody can see
silver in your hair melt into your cup of tea
penetrate the universe but from her point of view
cultivate a scalpel and a heart to cut into

but she’s got to to have a reason
no one’s letting her go
yeah she’s got to to have a reason
mother, you would know

city timing left over where the ocean dies
dance to the patterns we try to synchronize
leaving the weak where they lie in the end
one who is dangerous in need of a friend

fight with us
while the numbers wait around

but she’s got to to have a reason
no one’s letting her go

some of us
cracked if held too tight

yeah she’s got to to have a reason
mother, you would know

dry in the sun while the netting closes in
drop you and kick you and leave you to spin
standing alone with a fear of disguise
pointed like bullets illusions advise

but she’s got to to have a reason
no one’s letting her go
yeah she’s got to to have a reason
mother, you would know

master in one of a distant arraign
sacred and jealous the part of the chain
brothers and sisters of alien life
chemical air fighters stuck with a knife
Track Name: Radiance
So drink it till the end
And set down the glass
Put your glasses on
You know its not your last
The sand is cold at night
We go to see the moon
The ocean in the light
I left you too soon

Radiance
Radiance my dear
Radiance
Radiance is what I feel, when you’re near

And now that you are here
Hold on tight
Run the water warm
Run your dynamite
Hours split the day
Time we stay apart
I don’t know how it ends
I’m not sure where to start

Radiance
Radiance my dear
Radiance
Radiance is what I feel, when you’re near

Radiance
Radiance my dear
Radiance
Radiance is what I feel, when you’re near
Track Name: Broken Eyes
so tell me truly
what is it you hide
behind those broken eyes

and they are coming
for you from all sides
raining out the night

and i have chosen
to sit inside and weep
whenever i'm alone

for all my talking
what is it i know
and why is it you listen
behind my broken eyes

and if i had never met you
broken eyes would never take my hands
and if i had never been with you then
all my life i'd never know that
i'd be happier with you

and for my safety
the picture does not lie
it only cries

the women shake it
the wine is in the streets
it's only me

and if i had never met you
broken eyes would never take my hands
and if i had never been with you then
all my life i'd never know that
i'd be happier with you
i'd be happiest with you

Oh...

and if i had never met you
broken eyes would never take my hands
and if i had never been with you then
all my life i'd never know that
i'd be happier with you

and if i had never met you
broken eyes would never take my hands
and if i had never been with you then
all my life i'd never know that
i'd be happier with you
i'd be happier with you

i'd be happier with you
Track Name: Hear The Crazy (We Learn)
Come on, your colored ties are wet, my puppy is a fish but he's not alone
Divide, my sister read it many many times before but it was older then, after all the trouble it went to Mrs. Allen again

Hear the crazy my words, no one is gonna blow me out the way
Hear the crazy we learn, no one is gonna move me anyway

Surprise, my table is under you so soon, but if I don’t hear anyone they're not there
Devise, I’ll kill him if thats what you need, don’t play with fire if you’re in the woods

Hear the crazy my words, no one is gonna blow me out the way
Hear the crazy we learn, no one is gonna move me anyway
Track Name: Lion's Song
Then my promises will all to dark
Taking everything away
Waiting till the actors leave the stage
Wait beside the iron gate

Like a lion pleasing the eyes in his head
Hungry children tonight

I met a man, he was broke inside
Couldn’t carry what he owned
I met a girl and she gave a smile
I was hanging upside down

Like a lion pleasing the eyes in his head
Now he sleeps in the mud

Sending all my love
Sending all my love to her
Sending all my love
Sending all my love to her, this time
Anyone
Turning back to run, run back home


Walk into the desert painted black
Light is living underneath
Keeping in with twisted turning sides
If you fall you’re in between

Like a lion pleasing the eyes in his head
Hungry children tonight

Sympathetic with a senseless dream
Shutting down a turning heart
Leaking over all your pageless books
Still the words will find their part

Like a lion pleasing the eyes in his head
Eating dirt in rain

Sending all my love
Sending all my love to her
Sending all my love
Sending all my love to her, this time
Anyone
Turning back to run, run back home
Track Name: After Hours (Dream The Dream)
As if I've had enough
I see that it's been tough
I know you've had it rough my dear
I'll wait for you inside

The home inside my heart
Before I fall apart
Your eyes a work of art my dear
So follow me inside
Where it's warm

The after hours at the end of the coldest
I've only met you one time but that's all I need
And in the dark when I'm shaking and lonely
I always think of you while I bleed

So hear me I avow
And let me tell you how I feel
Work somehow
I've got a plan you could call a dream
Dream the dream
You can

Surrender all your shots
You have me up in knots
Stolen all my thoughts my dear
And what am I to do

The waters getting warm
You're building up a storm
I'm trying to keep a form my dear
I'm crazy if you want!
Track Name: Some Stranger
the leaves we falling
from the avenue
the boys and girls who lined the streets know what to do

the prince of Arden
in his elegance
falling over feathers this side of the fence

we wait for
some stranger
hold on she'll tell us where to go
we sit and
count cards for
hold on we'll know what we will know

like the sunlight
that we beam out
and send our beautiful light around the world

then wave us over
we'll try to help you through
let the music take you, show you what to do

we wait for
some stranger
hold on she'll tell us where to go
we sit and
count cards for
hold on we'll know what we will know
