Track Name: Who Do You Run From
Reach out for it
Leave your things behind
Bear in mind
Sun will shine
Rain will dry
Clouded eyes...
Who do you run from?
Why don't you come home to your lover's side?
Lean upon the friends who see
Climb into the banyan tree
In the hour of the wolf I'm here for thee

And when you wander from the bower
I'll do my best to try and see you where you really are;
Remind you how we're not so far from the grave but I'll be the one to wake you now

Reach out for it
Leave your things behind
Who do you run from?
Why don't you come home?
In the hour when your world is set afire...
Track Name: Something Moving
My eyes submit that I won’t focus
They can't resist what I don’t notice
You're a plane, Jane
You're taking off right before me
At a safe pace
Asking with your actions “Save me, please”
Come on and save me
I went into town just to see Michigan
How slow we walk when we've found something
Something moving
Moving mile by mile
Now I'm spinning
Off the curve of your smile

Loan me your lips at peak interest
Your right, my claim by the bite of my bid
You're the hip fight
Lighting up my night scene
In your black tie
Like you only lie with me
Baby, please,
I went into town wearing only my skin
I left feeling so deep in sin
Deep in something
Something not quite right
In my dark night, flying high on the wind

I'm a fake snake
Wax fangs and painted stripes
Just a tax break
Keen to bend the world how I like
Right how I like
Track Name: Stones I've Thrown
Mama loves me, this I know
Twenty-something stones I've thrown
In my own skin thinking I
had my heaven, milk and wine

Now I'm walking
The wolves on home
Through Virginia's
Field of gold
By my father's light I've known
Sheep from shepherd, dog from bone

Here I'm eyeing
The Saccharin blues
In temptation’s dangling fruit;
And from this side I sink into
Shade without you

But mama loves me
This I know
Twenty-something stones I've thrown
Track Name: Tangled In Your Web
I walked right into your trap today you caught me by surprise
Flying silk beneath the sunlight to cradle me below
If only I had seen the sign or really heard what you said
But I’m just tangled in your web; bite me if you like

I collapse into your lap you turn my red blood blue
You make me stiff with fright; lick my wound
Tell me how you dream of me in my soft pink skin
And wanna sink your teeth in; spin me into light
In flight I might I might I might
In flight I might I might I might

I’m within your red jurisdiction biding my time
Before I light my fire, commit my crime
So you bind me to your bottom line and wish that I were dead
But I’m just tangled in your web and I’m about to spend the night
In flight I might
In flight I might
You’re right
In flight, I might, you’re right, I might
Track Name: David
David you’re my only child, my memory
That freedom only walks so far in love
I mean
Your shadow grows longer
Impatiently, the night wolf looms in the moon
She'll call your rise and fall
My baby, how you’ve lost the sound of your voice
With this: a dying wish
To roll the dice and stay alive
Gamble on my friend
You’ll learn to find
That freedom only walks so far in love
That freedom only walks so far in love

"Though I adore you, bride of mine
I feel the sound, the din of God
Ringing in my bones,"
David writes,
"I hear the blow
The horn that turns stone to mud and leads the blind to see
That freedom only walks so far in love (I only walk so far in love)
That freedom only walks so far in love”

So take the keys
Homeless child of mine
And free this lonesome life

Ohh my love
Ohh my love
Ohhhh my love
Ohhhh my love, my love

Freedom only walks so far, and I only walked so far in
Freedom only walks so far, and I only walked so far
Freedom only walks so far, and I only walked so far in
Freedom only walks so far, and I only walked so far
Cuz David, you’re my only child, my memory
(That) freedom only walks so far and ohh, David,
I only walk so far in
I only walk so far in ohhh
Track Name: Egoeye
Somebody save me
I’m cutting down the cherry tree
Is something wrong with me?
We don’t like to lie
But someone had to die today
I can’t think of a thing to say

And I don’t have a thing to cry;
A fool gunning on a final high,
I get into a fist fight
With my own egoeye

I’m jamming up my memories
With my heavy metal enemies
And the devil inside of me
Moving my body

We see eye to eye

Who Am I?

Someone come find me
Lying on the nightline
Track Name: Nowhere to be Found
If I could find an army
To do as I command
If I could paint a picture, love
To help you understand
If I could dig to China
Without making a sound
Then baby I’d be nowhere to be found

If I could kill a giant
With the tiniest of stones
If I could keep a shooting star
From falling alone
If I could kiss the sunrise
Each time around
Then baby I’d be nowhere to be found

And it’s a long time to lie
A child beneath an endless sky
Who can only reach so high
And I love to wonder why
I feel I’m left with only my disguise

If I could find the secret
To how the world began
If I could hold the key of life
In the palm of my hand
If I could take you with me
And slow the turning down
Then maybe we’d be nowhere to be found

And it’s a long time to lie
A child beneath and endless sky
Who can only reach so high
And I love to wonder why
I feel I’m left with only my disguise

And I love to wonder why
I feel I’m left with only my disguise
Track Name: On The Road
On the road
With the wind my kingdom came
Held her breath and walked away
Gone to lay beside the waves
Breaking the world we made

At the shrine
Trembling by candlelight
All in line to learn to fly
Out on the winding road

Standing tall
A thousand terracotta dolls
An army at my beck and call
Propping up my city wall
That I would never close my eyes
And fall

Living on the line
Terror on mind
With fragments of glass
Lying on the floor
As I wander through the door
Track Name: In The Snow
I've been underneath the snow and it's so damn cold
I've been walkin’ for so long from the light I know
I was buried in the snow but nobody told
I've been walkin’ for so long from the light I know

My pain is bearing down on me
Got me under siege
What I need's a light I cannot see
To get me off my knees
I keep the key to being happy in the pit of my heart
And then I slowly start to see where I fell apart

In the dark my whole body goes a-swaying
In my mind I give up all my room
I resurface in daylight in a sea of habit
Now I'm walking on water when I'm with you
