I Heard you died on the inside You're plastic life it tore apart Ohh Into a million pieces Such a Phony Style and so Uptight A heavy sigh not feeling right And you're forgetting the past 'Cause it hurts Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Smoke curls up from cigarettes My lungs - they hurt because of it Every Cough - Itch and Burns Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Please, Please, Heal Me Friend Heal Me Friend Heal Me Friend Heal Me Friend

I once had an Oleander girl A voice as soft as fallen snow We danced on the sparks of the water falling over the stones She sang to me so effortlessly her melody my home Oleander Girl Plays a lullaby to soothe me Oleander Girl Promise that you’ll never leave Waves of Auburn hair she wore Her smile, A beautiful rapport Someday I’ll see her face, Her song my ears will hear The clouds are hanging low for me, I’m the first to shed a tear Oleander Girl Plays a lullaby to soothe me Oleander Girl Promise that you’ll never leave I once had an Oleander girl I once had an Oleander girl

Emerge 04:14
Brown out this morning fatted wick glows by design Go on in be seated waiting for your soul to mend Nothing last forever and having nothing hurts a lot You give me something and it feels so good just touching you What a sight Emerge! You circle and you weave I am arid eyed and I am satisfied I’ve rearranged this mess of mine so many times and rearranging makes me holy and new I breathe, I breathe It’s a force that guides me home again You, It just feels so good just touching you What a sight Emerge! You circle and you weave I am arid eyed and I am satisfied What a sight Emerge! You circle and you weave I am arid eyed and I am satisfied

In The Shade 05:10
Early morning stings my eye Leery gaze you can't hide Creaky floor please be quiet I step to the side, I hide in the shade Blackened ice hard to see Why oh why can't we agree I step to the side, I hide in the shade I step to the side, I hide in the shade Sleepy head everyday Leaky faucet go away I step to the side, I hide in the shade I step to the side, I hide in the shade

Once in a lifetime someone comes along and goes for that ride Shares all your visions your feelings (and) ultimately your life I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away I couldn’t fathom losing her again Losing her again It’s like a flipbook colored scrapbook When thinking back and closing my eyes I breath her in laced together intimately intertwined I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away I couldn’t fathom losing her again Losing her again I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away Losing her again Losing her again

Dear Brother 03:15
I'm on my way to where I'm not sure oh Lord But that's ok, cause it's better than before oh yeah I once was lost, then I found my way What are you waiting for? I'm telling you, I’m hoping you will wake up and take control Don't blame your world, the longer that you do, the farther you will fall You look so sad, get up and find your way What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? It's hard to see, when you're lying in the dark are you afraid? And just like me you had to take a chance and run away You’re still the same, get up and find your way What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for?

In her world there's nothing she can't be Theres a killer she can't see or ever know And you'll soon learn how hard it is on her Left wanting nothing less then so much more Ohhh we all want more Ohhh we all want more Then the killer we can't see And when she dreams, everything's so real And she can only feel when she’s with you But when she wakes, the nightmares come to play She tries to get away, where can she go? Ohhh where can we go? Ohhh where can we go? There’s a killer we can’t see

No Reason 02:46
Ghoutee hippy getting stoned again Cut your hair and found you lost a friend Contorted smile etched inside the skin Bloody lories in my head again You got no reason to be mad You got no reason to be sad Focus hard on the path you choose Looking lost and sort of out of use Don't butcher up your life with a meat cleaver You got no reason to be mad You got no reason to be sad You got no reason You got no reason to be mad You got no reason to be sad You got no reason

Under a Fatherless sky only lovers know why when moving towards their perfection Inside a Motherless night lit by stellarly light acknowledging all of their questions And the lines will blur ...between him and her I’m dreading the daylight I’ve waiting for sunlight I alone decide Who I am meant to be As the senses depart and the alchemy starts the lovers move like apparitions The amalgam of two cleave the hope from the truth a moment of peace in the low light ...and the lines will blur ...between him and her I'm dreading the daylight I’m waiting for sunrise I alone decide who I am meant to be And the lines are blurred ...and the lines are so blurred I'm watching the sunrise I’m pale in the daylight I alone will decide who I am meant to be

He opens his mouth and they fly The words in the room become lies Now, Everything she does Everything she do Anything she touches....makes her seem less alive. Ohhh she can't remember The last time she heard what is called the truth Everything she does Everything she do She closes her eyes - Wants to cry. But there no more tears left inside Now Everything she does, Everything she do Anything she whispers....Sounds like a prayer Ohhh she can't remember The last time she heard what is called the truth Everything she does Everything she do Ohhh she can't remember The last time she heard what is called the truth Everything she does Everything she do Ohhh Never stop trying!

Why are you following? Why are you laughing? It seems you know more than me, I wish I was laughing I too once had a smile guessing the leader What you don’t know can bring you down What you don’t know can bring you down Helpless and lying scared, your spirit is bleeding The stench of the unclean wounds How could they do this to you? And how could they walk right by? I’ll send someone back to retrieve you What you don’t know can bring you down What you don’t know can bring you down What you don’t know can bring you down Why do you look so sad? Conserving your sunshine It’s strange how the people feel, all the things that devour and destroy them The longer you roam the world The longer you roam the world What you don’t know can bring you down It’s all up to you!!!

I’ll pick myself up I’ll have my own parade Yeah, I’ve got it made, You’re invited too Step in time, step in time with the tune I have no doubt that in this atmosphere Where the air is clean and clear If I can’t sing, We’ll I’m gonna’ start singing it loud It’s unfair for you to linger with unsteady hands And a nervous mind drop and leave it far behind And feel the love that overflows Feel the love that overflows Overflows Dance today ‘cause it’s our own parade And yeah we’ve got it made Oh my my! Ain’t no one getting left behind I hear the drumming and the symphony A tribal lift to life’s minor maladies Banners high above, we are unconquerable We are not marginal, Feel the sunlight once again ‘Cause it’s unfair for you to linger with unsteady shaking fingers And a nervous unsure mind drop and leave it far behind And feel the love that overflows That overflows Dance today ‘cause it’s our own parade Yeah we’ve got it made…oh my my Steady drumming it’s a symphony A tribal quest to heal life’s minor maladies Dance today and keep on singing loud Live today ‘cause it’s its own reward Its what we’ve waited for
