Track Name: Rothko
Muted canvases on the wall
How your hues explain it all
Thought I was the only one
Who could mourn a setting sun
Who could mourn what's long been done

So I close my eyes to see
Through the foggy mystery
Like a broken obelisk
Dr. King would take the risk
Then Dr. King was laid to rest

Metal moon up above
Gypsy burn with love
Evermore
May we bend and brake
It's the risk we take
To be more than just awake
To be more than just awake
To be more than just awake

Gentle pull upon my ear
Telling me that someone's here
If you see the Rothko man
Tell him I did understand
Tell him I hope he's alright
Send my thanks to him tonight
Track Name: Run Run Run
Run run run
It's over now
You've had your fun fun fun
And you're out somehow

What to do
Now that he's gone
My guess it's up to you
To carry on

Some days you wander the bluer waters
They days you knew I wandered the greener pastures
Abide my spirit take my heart and bleed for what you need
Take what you need

My, my, my
My masochist
Is whispering "why why why this fated twist?"

But why ask why?
What's done is done
You've got enough to try
To overcome

Some days you wander the bluer waters
The days you knew I wandered the greener pastures
Abide my spirit take my heart and bleed for what you need
Take what you need

Run run run
It's over now
You've had your fun fun fun
And you're out somehow
Track Name: Brooklyn Song
My quick step flip-flop captain
Your princess has a stone stuck in her shoe
And you're wondering what happened
'Cause I agree to take a walk 'round your part of town with you
But by the time we get to Brooklyn
I think I'll have fallen in love

We walked by the Dakota
We talked about our favorite Lennon songs
When you held my hand in your hand
I imagined growing old along with you

Then we ran to catch the Q train
We picked it up at the Carnegie Hall
Where the steel drum plays Tchaikovsky
And down down babies slumbering babies chaos and all
And by the time we get to Brooklyn
I think I'll have fallen in love

Easy come and easy going
Even if it lasts a moment
Heaven knows I took a couple for the team
Had a drunkard and a drifter
A gold digger and a gifter
Even one who couldn't help but make a scene
Why'd my baby treat me oh so mean?

And on the train ride back from Brooklyn
I happily had fallen out of love

You're just about to get me
I'm just about to see you as you really are
This is just about my favorite part
When the darkness of the tunnel turns to bright blue light of day
Track Name: Kid
Close my eyes kid
Love is blind kid
And you've got mine kid

Joys and pain girl
Life's a game girl
Can't complain girl

Take my leave now
Hard to see how
Father mine, wow
Lead my hand somehow

It's ok
It's ok
until you come I wait
Until you come
I wait
Track Name: Sweet Louise
You take one step out the door
And i'm warning you, you ain't coming back
You try my patience and more
And the last three days have been a heart attack

Chorus:
Do you believe in me?
Do I belong to you?
Are you my sweet Louise"
Who's tempting and taking her precious time, precious time

As one hand shakes to hold on
And the other one is letting you go
You have my blessing go on
Go and realize what we all must know

Chorus

And the rain might flow
And the crickets go
To the beat of the drum
And the rain will come from light
Come from light

And the right might flow
And the crickets go
To the beat of the drum
And the rain will come from light
You're alive
You're alive

Are you my sweet Louise?
Who's tempting and taking her precious
Tempting and taking your precious
Tempting and taking her time
Track Name: Trouble
See the trouble with this conversation
Is that it's nearing to an end
IAnd the trouble with getting to know you
Is it's getting harder to pretend

That I know I don't own you a thing
Ain't got no ring on my finger to say
That I gotta go your way
Just got the way that you whisper
'Hey baby do you want to?'
When you know I do

And the trouble with having a whisky
Is that one ain't never enough
And the trouble with having one with me
Is that soon you'll call my bluff
And the trouble with getting you going
Is that the going does get rough

And I know you don't owe me a thing
Ain't got no ring on your finger to say
That you wanna go my way
Just got the way that you whisper
'Hey baby do you want to ?'
When you know I do
I do
I do

And the trouble with having you over
Is that sonn you'll have to leave
And the trouble with having a beating heart
Is when I wear mine on my sleeve

Don't I know you don't owe me a thing
Ain't got no ring on your finger to say
That you gotta go my way
And most love is incomplete
And it knows me off my feet
But the chills can be so sweet
What do you say baby
Do you want ?
Track Name: Traffic Jam
Traffic jam
In this unknown land
But we've got time, we've got time
To stand
All this time, all this time
At hand

Next to me
Mr. Serenity
Feeling fine, feeling fine
To me
Very fine, very fine
To me

Chorus:
And you say don't worry, don't worry
It's all gonna be ok
You say don't worry, don't worry
It's all gonna be ok
I feel my worry, my worry
It all starts to fade away

Honestly
I'm all 'bout honesty
But I've got lies in my life
Lately
Little lies in my life
Lately
Silhouette
Am I ready yet?
Have I love to find you yet?
Must be love to find you yet

Chorus

Traffic jam
In this unknown land
About time, about time
About time, about time
Track Name: Kinski's Three
Honestly honestly
You got a right to be
The way you want to be

It's you and me and Kinski's three
They say he's crazy
I guess he's crazy

But he's just like you
And he's just like me
And it's just like how we imagined it would be
In a vision of and about our love
And it came so naturally
And it happened accidentally
And it was so right for me

They all said 'girl, dream on'
They all said 'girl, dream on'

Symphony carry me
Into a choral sea
Give me a place to be

Destiny, I hear my destiny
A hundred voices strong
A hundred years beyond

And it echoes you
And it echoes me
And it echoes how we imagined it would be
In a vision of and about our love
And it came so naturally
And it happened accidentally
And it was so right for me

Klaus-ey baby
Drive me crazy
Take the wheel for me
And he said 'girl, dream on'
The choir sang 'girl, dream on'
We all sing 'girl, dream on and on and on and on...'
Track Name: Venus Rising
Gone, nothing's gone
It's just one thought away
Wrong, nothing's wrong
There's just nothing more to say

And sometimes I just don't know no I just don't know
If the way that I'm headed is the way I want to go
The way that I'm going is the way I ought to go
You say Vedic scripture should tell me so
And that the stars in the sky they'll realign
And the moon and the sun do tend to collide
Well i'm sorry to tell you
I don't really believe you
But you're kind to try and convince me so
Oh, oh, so kind
Oh, oh, so kind

Time, it's just time
And it marches along
Fine, I feel fine
I feel willful and strong

And sometimes I just don't know no I just don't know
If the way that I'm headed is the way I want to go
The way that I'm going is the way I ought to go
You say Big Black Book it tells us so
And that a long time ago in a far off land
Lived a great superpower with a rib in his hand
And then I came into being cause Eve started deceiving and now...
I can't go on, I can't
In life I see only what's surrounding me
Maybe the weight of Venus rising
Equals the way me hearts capsizing
Maybe you say you're Adam
But maybe I'm ont your Eve

Wrong, no one's wrong
We're just all on this move
Strong, I'm so strong
When there's nothing left to lose

And sometimes I just don't know no I just don't know
If the way that I'm headed is the way I want to go
If they way that I'm going is the way I ought to go
You say Big Black Book it tells us so
And no I just don't know now I just don't know
If the way that i'm headed is the way I want to go
The way that I'm going is the way I ought to go
You say Vedic scripture should tell me so
And no I just don't know no I just don't know no I just don't know...
Track Name: Changed
You want what you want and you don't want this
You need what you need what you can't resist
We had what we had but we've lost it now
I knew it we blew it I don't know how

Chorus:
It was a long time spent on the road
And I can hold my tongue
But our stories have so oft been told
How we're changed
How we're different
We ca't stay the way we were before
Cause we're changed now were different
You can take the way I am or leave me alone
Leave me alone

The children up north well they're calling down
We see what we see why you don't come 'round
Said I love you I did what I had to do
If you knew what I knew you'd have done it too

Chorus

You want what you want and you don't want this
You want what you want and you don't want this
Track Name: Around
You and me
I have no say in the matter
You will be the clash 'mongst all of the clatter
And I'll be around you
I'll always be around

Sweet sixteens and loves like sweaters in Venice
In betweens and dopes who just didn't get it

Alouette, Suga-mama
Alouette, Suga-mama

If I'd been round you
He never would have found you
I like the way he surrounds you
Like him I'd like to be around

Those who looked above the fantasy cruises
Those who took your love and left you in bruises

Alouette, Suga-mama
Alouette, Suga-mama

If I'd been 'round you
He never would have harmed you
So long as you allow me too
I'd really like to be
Attending patiently
Wave good-bye to each tragedy with me
Around
Track Name: Lights Like This
And the fire clicks along inside it's plastic log
Turned on by this little plastic knob
And it almost feels like home
It almost feels like Same and me and Jackie G
Huddled around the Christmas tree

When the light's like this
When the light's like this
When the light's like this
I almost think I'm home

And they say it's twelve below
They tell me not to go outside
My limbs and eyes will freeze from the wind chill
And I nearly do comply
But I can't miss this time
All lit up like Christmas time it is

When the light's like this
When the light's like this
When the light's like this
I almost think I'm home

And I wonder how you are
I wonder if you licked the door tonight
And if the dog is doing alright
And I wonder where I'd be if I had never met you
If I had never let you hold me so sweet
So sweet
So sweet
I almost think I'm home.
