Track Name: I Want To Be the Sea
I want to be the light
touching your face
In the morning
after a night
of making haste

I want to be the sound
that wakes you
from a sleep
induced by a
thousand pills
they told you to eat

I want to be the sea
that shows you
your face
an unfiltered truth
of eternal taste

I want to be
the voice
that wakes you
from a dream
that haunts you in the night
with images you have seen

(chorus)
I have been there before (x2) {I want to be the sea x2}
where the horizon
meets the land and the sea
washes over the shore
and you only
get on chance
no more

I want to be
the words
scrawled across the page
that are sweet as honey
and that end in bitter taste

I want to be the drum
inside your chest
that beats so loudly
it ignores the rest

I want to be
the truth
inside your head
that feeds you
when your hungry
a body of bread

I want to be
the wind coursing
through your veins
a river-work that runs
through your inner planes
Track Name: Down the Stream I Go
I am floating in a different world
Down the stream I go
Down the stream I go

woah

The wings, they take me
The wings, they take me to and fro

I am swimming
I am swimming through the smoke
I am floating in a different world
Track Name: The Modern Cowboy Rides a Bicycle
I saw the amnesia in your eyes as you walked away

i heard the surprise in your voice as you fell

you were bankrupt in emotion

you were sparse in your words

and with your double edged pen
you wrote out every verse

the sun!
the sun!
oh shield your eyes
from what you've done

the sun
the sun
reveals to everyone

you were bankrupt in emotion

you were sparse in your words

and with your double edged pen
you wrote out every verse


elusive in its nature it has you on the run

the closer that you think you are the further you have gone

you're still bankrupt in emotion

you're still sparse in your words

and with your double edged pen
you write out every verse

the sun!
the sun!
oh shield your eyes
from what you've done

the sun
the sun
reveals to everyone

you're still bankrupt
in emotion
you're still sparse
in your words
Track Name: The Fire Will Fall
I had a dream
a fire it fell down

i saw the fire
wash away this town

i saw them drain
the water in the well

i heard their voices
as they fell

the fire will fall
the fire will fall
the fire will fall down

i heard the voice
warn me of this day

i heard the wind
the words that it say

the fire will fall
wash away this town

the fire will fall
wash everyone around
Track Name: C'est Tu
si tous les gens sont terribles,
qui c'est ton ami?

c'est tout
c'est tout
c'est tout

si tous les yeux te regardent
qui c'est ton ami?

c'est tu
c'est tu
c'est tu
Track Name: Stuck Inside My Mind With the Insomniac Blues
I can't remember
my dreams
when I open my
eyes it seems
like I've been
Floating
around

I wish I could tag along
when you close your eyes you're gone
and you would not
believe how long

You're right by my side
but I'm stuck inside
my mind
and my mind
plays
tricks on me

open your door
for one ride
with you and I
Stuck inside
a town that we
have made
with our minds
Track Name: These Are the Streets You Know
objects in the mirror
are closer than they appear

i saw a thousand things
you hate, you love, you fear

you tried to hold near
all the things you hold dear

but you end up losing what you love
what you love is what you fear

how far down this street
will you go before you know

objects in the mirror
are much closer than you fear

as you slowly push the pedal down
to get away from here

how much gas can you
really fit inside your tank

before your credit's gone
because they've broken up the bank

how far down this street
will you go before you know
Track Name: Ballad of a Girl Too High To Be Found
go ahead jump right in
move around and swim
open all the closed doors
you've been searchin' for
the day that i promised
is here so fly

don't look back
don't look down
don't even look around
reality is not
what they say they've found
and you're not the type
thats reality bound

as your memories pass
don't stay for long
they are the notes
of a forgotten song
they are the tree
in a field long gone
and i am the path
that you're standing on

don't look back
don't look down
don't even look around
reality is not
what they say they've found
and you're not the type
thats reality bound

don't look back
don't look down
don't even look around
reality is not
what they say they've found
and you're not the type
thats reality bound

I'm the passing day
of a time born new
and now you're too high
even for you

don't look back
don't look down
don't even look around
reality is not
what they say they've found
and you're not the type
thats reality bound
Track Name: Sun Fades Day
You slowly watch the day
as it fades into the sky

the sun waves hello
as it quickly hurries by

Shakespeare's in the street
playing on his old guitar

the tambourine beat
chases your mind far

his words are to keep
to pack, to travel, and to weep

and they're slowly burning holes
on the bottom's of your feet

(chorus)
Its drinking that's easy
remembering that's hard
and it's the morning sun
that wakes you up
when you've gone far
It's the morning sun
that wakes you up
when you've gone far

your night is set
on play, pause, rewind, repeat
as you sweetly move around
from drink to drink

because its misery
that you're addicted to
you move into sorrow
and let it consume you

you walk into the room
with your X on your arm
you say it's only a bit of fun
whats the harm
