Track Name: Goodbye July
Goodbye July for autumn tones
By the hum of sticks and stones
I know you have an answering machine
But I'll leave you messages on loose leaf sheets

Of paper at the start of the century
So you'll know what you meant to me
It must be hard for ceiling and floors
Catching colds in grocery stores

The hour's late, the hands have turned
Seconds count minutes while time is burned
The sky hangs low, alarm clock sings
Means to an end, the end of me

Straight ahead and never stray
It's the thoughts that broke the way
The constellations overheard
But I'll remember things like they were

So
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long

In our final hours of deepest despair
We always ask for some angel to care
And all I see, when you can't forget me
You wanna ask for some dead end street

Listen in silence intently
Shadows swallow up the sea
Last gasp for walls that breath
Carpet dances under my feet

Straight ahead and never stray
It's the thoughts that broke the way
The constellations overheard
But I'll remember things like they were

It's been
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
Track Name: Fade Away
Blood in the ever beating heart
Love as the never ending way
I resign to the matters of the cursed
Doomed to forever walk upon this earth

A pale light
In your eyes

You’ll fade away
And I’ll stay away
I’ll fade away
And you’ll stay this way

Your shadow moves it’s own way
In an unnatural display
The inner light sparkles as it leaves your mind
And the flesh is just a temporary disguise

A pale light
In your eyes

You’ll fade away
And I’ll stay away
I’ll fade away
And you’ll stay this way
Track Name: Birds and Snakes
Birds and snakes on videotapes
Rewind the cassettes
This is the scene on the TV screen
That's playing in our heads

From real to reel
White plastic reels
And frozen, sunburn stares
Glowing red this lava bed
Is a Federal Bureau scare
From seen to scene on silver screens, chewing the scenery
The credits just keep rolling on

Hey we want it
Hey we need it
Hey we want it
Don’t ever let go
Track Name: Insomnia
It could be worse is your heart still beating?
I don't know I can barely feel it
Close your eyes and think of only peaceful feelings
I could but that's not how I'm feeling

Oh, I don't know how you lay awake
If I knew then I would fix it but I don't
It's like fixing a watch?
No its not

But you couldn't leave well enough alone
Well enough alone
Insomnia

The ticking of the clock is all I'm hearing
I'm paddling the boat but someone else is steering
Close your eyes and think of only peaceful feelings
I could but that's not how I'm feeling

Oh, I don't know how you lay awake
If I knew then I would fix it but I don't
It's like fixing a watch?
No its not

But you couldn't leave well enough alone
Well enough alone
Insomnia

I've been with, without you for so long
I'm starting to forget just how good things used to be
I never took it for granted but still...

But you couldn't leave well enough alone
Well enough alone
Insomnia
Track Name: Way Out West
Way out west where the surfers go
Way out west where the palm trees grow
Way out west where we call our home
You’ll never take our
You’ll never take our
Sunshine away

Way out west where the wagons roll
Way out west where the cactus grow
Way out west where we built our home
You’ll never take our
You’ll never take our
Sunshine away
Track Name: Sugar Plum
Sugar plum
When you leave
All I can think
Is when can I see
When can I see you again?

Little one
When you're gone
All I can do
Is think of you
When I'm alone again

I pick up the phone to call you
But the phone rings in my hand
And I know that our thoughts are the same

Because I love the way it feels
To know you feel the same way i do
And I'll tell you one more time
That I love you
And I'll tell you one more time
That I love you

I pick up the phone
But the phone rings in my hand
And I know that our thoughts are the same

Because I love the way it feels
To know you feel the same way I do
And I'll tell you one more time
That I love you
And I'll tell you one more time
That I love you
And I'll tell you one more time
That I love you
Track Name: Deep Sleep
Floating in the static on the radio waves
Shaping the sounds and molding them out of clay
Surrounded by bomb shelter concrete walls
It's a wonder it comes in at all

Tuning out
Turning on
Dropping down
Close your eyes
And she's gone

Focus on the energy of the cube
Crystallizing ever-infinite blue
The sun and moon as two eyes within the same head
Visualize electricity dark room red

Close your eyes
Float downstream
Slowly rise
Head in the clouds
You're gone
Track Name: Heard It On the Breeze
I heard it on the breeze
Everything you said to me

We'd carry on
And on and on and on
Maybe after I'm gone
You will stop and think about the words I said

You said you're thinking about me
I don't wanna hear a sound from you
You said you're leaving without me
But it's only for a week or two

Vibrations on the air
Told me everything you dare say

We'd carry on
And on and on and on
Maybe after I'm gone
You will stop and think about the words I said

You said you're thinking about me
I don't wanna hear a sound from you
You said you're leaving without me
But it's only for a week or two
Track Name: Nothing
The visions lie
Above burning wood
Earthly desires
Project our dreams on starry skies
Its you and me
As realized in our bigger themes

Nothing is anything at all
Nothing means anything at all

Do or die
What's done is done
The answers lie
Beyond the horizon
We'll never know why
What's gone is gone
Even in disguise
Of a thousand burning suns

Nothing is anything at all
Nothing means anything at all

I've seen our photos on the wall enlightened by the flash
I've seen our photos on the wall that second in the past

Nothing is anything at all
Nothing means anything at all
Track Name: Another Girl
Hey
You don't understand anything I'm saying
Girl
Everything I say is an understatement

Why does everybody I know
Have to go and hit the high notes?
I've decided just to lay low
Like a kite when no wind blows

I need another girl
Yes, I need another girl...
Like I need a hole in the head
