I Believe

Hold my tongue there's nothing I can say to you
You tie me up with words
You tie me up with words
I'm so lost you say that you'd pray for me
You'd smother me with words
You'd smother me with words

They turned your story all around
They had you free when you were bound
They raised you up when you were down
They raised you high

I believe someone's watching over me
I believe in the dreams that set you free

You're so strong it really is a mystery
You give your power away
You give your power away
Why be a song when you can a symphony
Don't give your power away
Don't give your power away

I believe
I believe we are free to be chained
To be slaves, to be chained or to be free

I believe someone's watching over me
I believe in the dreams that set you free
I believe

The Dance of Bad Angels

What a journey
So hard to describe
Your harbour so small
The ocean so wide
Spin the wheel, spin the wheel
Go wherever she spins
Surrender to this wave that's rolling in

Homing fingers
Starting to dig

Raising expectations
Lifting the lid
There's a show going down
Going deeper within
I long to lose myself
Inside your skin

What a feeling under the stars
My body's rotating from Venus through Mars
There's a war going on
between my head and my heart
I wonder how they grew
So far apart

I'm so shaken, about to explode
The myth of kissing princes
is they turn into toads
There's a war going on
between the sun and the moon
Before they come to terms we'll be consumed

Oh my god, please take me now
I'm ready for ascension
If I only knew how
Give me wings give me wings
Now I'm stuck on the ground
Recieve this blood and bones
I'm homeward bound

See the statue growing wings
This singer was a virgin
Until he conceived
God is love, God is love
And her lover I'll be
I long to leave the world in ecstacy

Dance with me around this fire
The dance of bad angels who'd love to fly higher
God is love, God is love
And her lover I'll be
long to lead the world in ecstacy

Hit Parade

Awake bear the mark and wear the crown of thorns
Awake build me up and knock me down

Now that I'm free
You can be cheerleader in my hit parade
Now that I'm free
Now that I feel

Awake put it down and walk away
Awake I don't care what you say

Now that I'm free
You can be cheerleader in my hit parade
Now that I'm free
Now that I feel

All those ghosts all those dreams
My desire was overwhelming me
Found my peace
Found my needs
I'm no longer a broken dream
All alone
All alone
All alone
All alone

Awake made it to the other side
Awake I will not be sacrificed, again

Now that I'm free
You can be cheerleader in my hit parade
Now that I'm free
Now that I feel

You will do me no wrong
You will do me no wrong
In my hit parade
In my hit parade

Fall In Love With Me

Ease your lips into a velvet kiss
While I enfold you
Move your hands across this promised land
The seekers guided by the pole star

Say the words why don't you say the words
I have been waiting long to hear
Please fall in love with me

Drift with me upon an endless sea
We are divine in the realm of these senses
Every move has been subterfuge
While we pretend that we really dont care

Lose your fear we may be strangers here
But I can feel we might be one
Please fall in love with me

I hear the sound of moons falling
Surrender to this charm
I breeze across your soul darling
Deep eternity

Lost your mind well don't you think its time
To swim away from the saftey of these beaches

Trust the tides they know which way to flow
And don't you long to flow so far

Moved in waves we've never felt before
Till we are floating way out deep
Please fall in love with me
Please fall in love with me
Please, with me

Old Ways

Somedays I fly like a bird

Everything flows and love is a verb
Nothing is static the breach is birthed
By these old ways

Somedays I fall from the sky
Shoot myself down when I fly so high
Trash my acheivements
Wish I could die
To these old ways

Wash away your past with warm tears
Let them fall from your eyes
Wash your past with a laugh dear
Your laugh can make us fly

Somedays I put myself down
Question my purpose, design a new shroud
Feel like an actor who's faking new ground
In an old play

Somedays you burst my balloon
Feel so dejected like I have come too soon
Can't walk the line between user and used
So I used you

Dear child when you were born
I looked for signs arising from this storm
Dear child I heard your call
You gave me back my heart
and I walked out the door

My God I'm calling to you
The journey was hard but then we broke through
I really do move in mysterious ways
And so do you

All this fear, I can't find my truth here
All this fear, we will clear

WE WILL CLEAR

Life Gets Better

Where'd you steal that song
Picked the bones of ancient ones
Once they're in your house they stay forever
Where'd you learn those moves?

From my anger from the blues
They're the only clues to my intention

How do when know your smiles
From the dolphin not the crocodile

The porpoise of this sickness
Is to get better

I see you shine far away in your new life
Looks to me like you got away

Maybe I'll be passing back this way

Don't tell me life gets better
don't tell me life gets better

What you have left to sell
Now that you moved out of hell
Who in England will want to hear you're happy

Only pain is deep
The rest is just an american dream
You sold your pain a bluesman for a crooner

I see you shine far away in your new life
Looks to me like you got away

Maybe I'll be passing back your way
Just don't tell me life gets better
don't tell me life gets better

Where'd you get that mask

Made it at school in the middle class
Something to show for all my parents' money

What have you left to say

Life's too good

Don't talk that way
I tell you life's not fair

Ah, but life gets better

Life gets bitter
Life gets better
Life gets better
Life gets better
Life gets better

Heart

And when you took that stand
I was so proud of you
And now I'm not so sure
You should have let them through

And when the curtain fell
I saw you standing there
Just looking so alive
And then you started to fly

Heart, I'm so eager to please
Heart, let me dance my disease
Heart, I just long to be free
To be healed

And so they ran to you
They tried to hold you down
But you just slipped your skin
And let the whole world in

Heart, I'm so eager to please
Heart, let me dance my disease
Heart, I just long to be free
To be healed

I've been looking for meaning
Been afraid of these feelings
Got stuck in my mind
Cut myself into pieces
Now I'm coming home in pieces
Coming home in pieces
Coming home

Heart, I'm so eager to please
Heart, let me dance my disease
Heart, I just long to be free
Heart, I just long to be healed
Heart, I don't know what I need
Heart, let me dance my disease
Heart, I'm just longing to heal
Heart, come on ride the medicine wheel

Rising

Passing over
Passing over
Time runs through you
Time to move on

No more hiding
No more holding
No more searching
Searching for peace

Let it go, let it go
To the living
Let it go, let it go
Into the light
Let it go, let it go
You are leaving
Let it go, let it go

Hold him gently
Hold him gently
He's so holy
He's been released

We're so fragile
We're so tender
We're exposed to the winds of the world

Won't you die, won't you die
A little deeper
Won't you die to this life thats holding you
If you stay, only stay because you want to
Don't hold on if it's true

When you die they will open to receive you
Let it go, let it go
You're passing through
When you die they will open to receive you
Let it go, let it go

Butterfly Dreams

Drag my lips across these mouths
Drap my hips across this crowd
Curiosity knows no bounds
I'd love to sleep
With the whole town

Caught between these steaming sheets
I made my bed
And now she waits
Full of hopes and future plans
While I just hoped for one night stands
Don't make her sound oh no
Don't make her sound oh no
Don't make her sound oh no oh no

The trick is not to be so nice
If I wasn't rich they wouldn't look at me twice
While kissing her I want her sister
Is there no end to my desire
Pledge true love
Tenderly hold her
All the time looking over her shoulder
Don't make her sound oh no
Don't make her sound oh no
Don't make her sound oh no oh no

Endless hunger endless guile
She'll be waiting with that smile
Endless hunger endless guile
She will rock you like a child

Mayday oh my
I'm the one to make you cry
Mayday it's all gone wrong
I turn around and now she's gone
Mayday oh my
I'm the one to make you cry
Mayday, what do you know
One comes, the other goes

The creature's out to prowl around
The mob are out to track him down.
They drive him on, or does he lead out of their dreams and into his
No way back to solid ground.
Out of their dream and into his.

Endless hunger endless guile
She'll be waiting with that smile
Endless hunger endless guile
She will rock you like a child
She will rock you like a child
She will rock you like a child

Butterfly dreams
Butterfly dreams
Butterfly dreams
Butterfly dreams
Butterfly dreams
Butterfly dreams
Butterfly dreams

Mayday oh my
I'm the one to make you cry
Mayday it's all gone wrong
I turn around and now she's gone
Mayday oh my
I'm the one to make you cry
Mayday, what do you know
One comes, the other goes
Mayday oh my
I'm the one to make you cry
Mayday it's all gone wrong
I turn around and now she's gone
Mayday oh my
I'm the one to make you cry
Mayday, what do you know
One comes, the other goes
Mayday
Mayday
Mayday
Mayday

Stranger

Love strikes without a warning
I've lost control
My life's freefalling
Into new worlds
Born free the jail is waiting
I hold the key
Freedom's not easy
When the jailer is me

I'm the stranger who fell through time
I'm a stranger to these new highs
I'm a stranger to my old life

Lover this is my calling
Love knows no bounds
Free me I must be breaking
Breaking with sound
Drown me your love is pouring
No fear allowed
Hold me our love is soaring
Way past these clouds

I'm the stranger who fell through time
I'm a stranger to these new highs
I'm a stranger to my old life

Flying or am I falling
Upright or down
Free me been walled in
I'm lost in sound

Hands in the Rain

There's no hope for me today
Given love I blew it away
Didn't have a heart to recieve it

Closed the heart open the mind
She's too warm refrigerate her
Started with a kiss
And then I ate her

Made a meal and read the signs
Children killed a teacher Thursday
Made him eat his words
He's full of learning

All my lights have blown a fuse
Tripped the switch I live in Toontown
Am I alive
Or am I dreaming

All in the cause of a war
Head and heart into battle
Hold your hands up and feel the rain
Falling and falling like metal
Again
All in the cause of a war

I'm so sad I cried a flood
All around tall buildings falling
I'd be fallling too
If it weren't for you

Pave the way the prophet comes
Show you what my backbone's made of
Yoga has a host and hidden meaning

All in the cause of a war
Head and heart into battle
Hold your hands up and feel the rain
Falling and falling like metal
Again
All in the cause of a war

I'm so high the room's too small
Hit my head my roof is bleeding
I just put my fist through the ceiling

I'm just high I'm not insane
Think you must have slipped me cocaine
"Waiter take it back I ordered sham pain"

All in the cause of a war
Head and heart into battle
Hold your hands up and feel the rain
Falling and falling like metal
Again
All in the cause of a war

Hold your hands up and feel the rain
