Track Name: Heal Me Friend
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
Track Name: Oleander Girl
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
Track Name: Emerge
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
Track Name: In The Shade
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
Track Name: Losing Her Again
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
Track Name: Dear Brother
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?
Track Name: The Killer You Can't See
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
Track Name: No Reason
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
Track Name: Under A Fatherless Sky
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
Track Name: Everything She Do
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!
Track Name: Laughing Song
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!!!
Track Name: Our Own Parade
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
