Time it waits for you, my darling Every soul was born for loving No Moment to moment Lately I am dreaming of a cold and distant feeling These icy waters they flow into my head This yuletide Christmas cover, it hugs me like a brother Behind my neck I find my debt, it's red We are more than flesh and water And you've got me to keep you warm No Moment to moment No You live it you own it Sister I am driving this road all straight and narrow My wheels they keep on spinning, but I'm slow And fate I feel your power loom high atop my tower My hour, so lonesome, waiting for your call

Raven moonlight on the table, Malediction, am I able? Fight off all my inhibition My insecure, non conviction I waste no time for you I waste no time Rocking back and forth I wonder Peering through my morning eyes And you can’t find the words to tell me Not to say you’d even try But all those years we've burned together All the rays and stormy weather All that time in harmony All that’s left of you in me But I waste no time for you And I kill my pride I am driving through the fog On melted roads I pay the toll I can wait, I cannot wait To see your eyes, to hold your face But man, hold on to yourself Hold on to yourself For a minute now For a second now For a minute now I am shaking, snaking toward you Booking past the second sun Moats and boats and alleyways On rusted trees, our serenade But child, have love for yourself Before they come and take it all up from you And I feel your fire come I’ve tried but I can’t escape And I wait for the day you will open the gate But the time won’t come I know But I can wait no longer And under my sin I have let you in

I want to see your face I want to know it all I want your warm embrace But now’s just the wrong time The wrong time in our lives And we share our mother’s health But we don’t ever call She made the sky so blue So blue just for me and you Waiting for you to call She’ll wait so patiently You thought you’ve seen it all But wait till you are in need Trembling just like a child We’ve got so much to learn Hubris it rules the world Don’t let it take over you Waiting for you to call She’ll stay so patiently You thought you’ve seen it all But wait till you are in need Your mama she loves you so Paving the road And since mine is across the sea Kiss her for me Mama Though sometimes I feel I’ve failed you I want you to know That your boy, your boy he cares for you Waiting for you to call She’ll wait so patiently And you thought you’ve seen it all But wait till you are in need

Springtime falls on the pine forest Rebel with cancer cells and spiderwebs With hope, he lies The time, it buys Gallant and gold Shimmering stone Blue of the bay Vibrant and grey Well "How do you do?" when In restless gaze, fearless age you crawl Tickle on her shoulder, cardamom and clove again Life unlike an apple, seed and core and sin Gallant and gold Shimmering stone Blue of the bay Vibrant, grey Shake it off Shake it off Shake it off We pick ourselves up Break ourselves down Round and around till the sky falls down

Wish I were a dancer I practiced in the past Bending over backwards The golden calf Can't be brought to market Little piggy's on the run Someone has to die now Well I hope you had your fun Staring at the picture Opinions are obscure Speaking without listeninig Won't defeat your fear Coming on like gangsters Bunch of bastards Think they got the answers What they got Can't be sold for profit The writing's on the wall Clinging to tomorrow Well your failure's not your fault The band comes out of pocket Little sister hit the street Lying down can't stop it Love is all you need Ignore the volume Expand the edge of now Nature abhors the vacuum While crying out loud

Watch the tourists Watch them gather Round the fountain Splash in the water I don’t ever wanna drown in our love In a sea of broken tear drops I don’t wanna see your face any clearer Reflecting all that I have done wrong like a mirror Your blood is in my veins girl, my skin unhinged, unfurled I’ve tried to keep my temper but you’ve got a way that makes me say I want your spit cross my lips And I, I ain’t ever Ever gonna quit you no But the birds sing Like our children And the love grows I will wait for you Alone But the birds sing Like our children And the love grows And I’ll wait for you

New in town, crashing on couches Working the lounge, messing all her blouses up First in show, she’s got a little money Go man, go, my little pony goes all night Trains on tracks, trained to steer Toll booth blues, blind and blurred Cold, wet window wasted sunlight Rolling down in spades Wolves, wolves at your door Never let you go Right for your soul No, knowing what you know They’ll never let you go Wolves at your door So streetwise, love on the ledger Close your eyes, hope something better will come Black eyelashes batting in the moonlight Wait your turn or steal one Trains on tracks, trained to steer Toll booth blues, blind and blurred Cold, wet window wasted sunlight Rolling down in spades Wolves, wolves at your door Never let you go Right for your soul No, knowing what you know They’ll never let you go Wolves at your door

I’ve been alone so long You could say I’ve wronged my days Burnt my pain away The rails on the sea The waves they’re looking at me But the child is a-risin’, no compromises But the light Of the storm cloud Is alright For the swell of your mind And my love Is a river flowing out The ship it’s hugging on the coast Like a baby to the most of warmth To her mama’s song The rocking of the trees The whispers in her breeze Scare your fears away Welcome your tears to stay But the light Of the storm cloud Is alright For the swell of your mind And my love Is a river flowing out

Motorcycle sattelite touch Dandelion cattleprod feather Incandescent dragonskin rush Chardonnay waterslide weather Wake, rise, falls the ocean Tide, bind, your skin is glowing Love, light, like summer Climb, climb Oxygen moonbow hatch Cauterized rainbow island Reflective unresponsive romance Welterweight aural pleasure Wake, rise, falls the ocean Tide, bind, your skin is glowing Love, light, like summer Climb, climb Why you gotta be so mean to my boyfriend’s daddy? Why you gotta leave your garbage in my teeth? Wake, rise, falls the ocean Tide, bind, your skin is glowing Love, light, like summer Climb, climb

Cobwebs It force her into another nightmare And all your ravens is comin’ home They roost, into the wind Just miss and make up I’ll try not to wake up She’ll never live this world alone I keep stealing my hearts from the other girls I guess it's just the bottom to the bone I guess it’s just the bottle to the bend Disco bottom to the top of love I guess it’s just the bottom to the bone Leave your keys in the sink I’ll sleep in that stair, well Alamadino Your finger's green You don't know but you know what I mean Feels good to think you do But I never want that bass to fade away I guess it's just the bottom to the bone I guess it’s just the bottle to the bend Disco bottom to the top of love I guess it’s just the bottom to the bone Your feet don’t charge Your feet don’t lie You feel sometimes You feed sometimes You gotta 13 dollar bill With a name on a face You got a smile in your pocket And your heel in a brace You gonna touch the roof Graze the sky Gonna float on down like tra la la Gonna kiss the momma, his holy ghost, gonna spot his face on a piece of toast I have fear, fear of death I never want to go But if you stay with me The disco bottom will set us free I guess it's just the bottom to the bone I guess it’s just the bottle to the bend Disco bottom to the top of love I guess it’s just the bottom to the bone Your feet don’t charge Your feet don’t lie You feel sometimes You feed sometimes You got this 13 dollar bill Name on a face You got a ripple in your pocket And your name in a brace You gonna touch the roof Graze the sky Float on down like tra la la Gonna kiss the momma, her holy ghost, gonna spot his face on a piece of toast Of all our earthly goals Of all our rules and clothes Before we fade away Into the supernova stardust of worlds left in decay

Up in your bubble Causing no trouble The lines are cut Whisper machine, Your nose is clean The jig is up Stars slide off the sides of your face We don’t communicate Space and time, it’s our faulty design But we just can't communicate Long shot, globetrot Television eyes on the Highline We’ve swam around Lifted the crown Underwater, globetrotter Devil in the details, our souls are for sale We fumble, we stumble, we rumble in and out of time Her green-blue eyes leave us so mesmerized But the stains on her pride leave us longing for another dime Long shot, globetrot Television eyes on the high line We’ve swam around Lifted your crown Underwater, globetrotter The sky opens up like the hole in our cup But the goddess is wrong and we just cannot communicate Hesitate, leap of faith, hearts will break, love and hate Nobody touch us but we just cannot communicate

Tori was a girl who came on her own Left her coast setting in the falling sun Kept the clock ticking on his idle mind Teach him how to dance with the hands of time Meet her at a bar on a Friday night Hit the cab running cause he just wanna hold her tight Feeling so good he could kill his self Never knew the lonely in the happiness Mary was a lady he brought in his life Faithful to the first but he let her take his drive Woke Tori from the dream like a cannonball Never thought her man would find his mind inside a wall Holding on to her face with tears in eyes Kissing on her lips ‘cause she was his only pride He could not convince her Share a coffee on an autumn afternoon I’ve tried to understand Why she left me for another man But the more I dig though, the less is clear But a woman can’t love a man ruled by fear I still shiver I still shiver though Because these veins, they’ll never fade They're rising up the streets from the sewer grates But I did my time, and I drink my wine Scream into the cosmos, never die We are bigger than our lies We don’t need to victimize We are stronger than our lies We don’t need to fear their eyes We don't need to victimize We are stronger than our lies We are bigger than our lies We don't need to fear their eyes
