You said you needed The airy hand To bind my mouth All I have Oh how hard Oh how hard Leave this world O, Embrace not the hand The dreams we had The future really is beautiful Drifting fast the wind she blows On my cracked feet Falling soft upon the earth Nothing more, nothing’s open yet Now is my time to say my final words I planted dreams That turned into madness How do you dream? And end up in sadness? I tell you I have found Sweet fire burning in your eyes That turns to hope And takes this last moment To hold for the rest of your life You turn the sun in a moment Into a love power reflecting beam For all our sakes The sun will never be leaving in you You said you needed the airy hand To bide my mouth All I have O how hard O how hard Leave this world Embrace not the hand Embrace not the hand

(Butterfly kisses) I watch in horror as monolith towers Devoured by powers that are Not soon forgotten the image is brought in To linger and rot in my brain Who’s to blame? (Butterfly kisses) Jumping from windows engulfed by flames (Butterfly kisses) Who’s to blame? Jumping from windows engulfed by flames (Butterfly kisses) Eskimo noses Remembering our innocence (Butterfly kisses) I watch in horror as children pull guns from their sleeves Say goodbye to their little lives And they never learn to say please Eskimo noses Remembering our innocence I watch in horror as nature Releases her power Winds and rains and giant waves Cities and families devoured Who’s to blame? (Butterfly kisses) No one and nothing will be the same (Butterfly kisses) Who’s to blame? No one and nothing will be the same (Butterfly kisses) Eskimo noses Remembering our innocence

Vision 03:57
Fading in and fading out of view Trying to focus trying to see you Blinded by light blinded by night Failing of vision failing of sight I can’t see your beauty Just shadows in the light But my ears can hear you screaming like a beast in the night Relying on touch Relying on sound Fingers wrapping around and around Lost in the mist, hand on my wrist Lead me on like a child I can’t see your beauty Just shadows in the light But my ears hear you you screaming like a beast in the night Breathing in and breathing out Reach from within, reaching out Fading in and fading out of view Trying to focus trying to see you Blinded by light blinded by night Failing of vision failing of sight I can’t see your beauty Just shadows in the light But my ears hear you you screaming like a beast in the night

She fell from the stars, I see Kind eyes, I must remember That word she spoke And turned the world aside Held her in my slow regard Her dress swirled like smile and fire We shared a first last kiss Under a moon that sighed Follow me across the sea Follow me under sinking sun Follow me on the breeze Follow me, follow me He lips bright with restless words I count her many facets This time, for her Just never seemed to fit Her voice light as the wind Now gone, follow roaming home Tell them I left to find My fiction divine Follow me across the sea Follow me under sinking sun Follow me on the breeze Follow me, follow me (I’m so lonely, helps me to breathe) Silence, pressed against the sky How so, without the stars To her, like the memory Of a song unheard Now I, Under different sun Call out across the distance Stand firm behind This stage-trained heart (Helps me to breathe, helps me to breathe)

Knots 04:19
Love is a funny thing Ties you up in knots The first time I saw you The first time, the first time Breathing escapes me My eyes dash to the floor Blood rushes to my cheeks Rushing, rushing Wish I could do What my body wants me to do A few more shots might Loosen up these knots Anticipating Ours bodies on the floor Your breath on my neck You breathe me in, I breathe you in Breathing escapes me My eyes dash to the floor Raise the glass to my lips Drinking, drinking Wish I could do What my body wants me to do A few more shots might Loosen up these knots Wish I could do What my body wants me to do A few more shots Might Loosen up these knots

In Unison 03:10
You-hoo You-hoo You-hoo Rise up Bind, blend, and bond As one In unison Just put a little drop in And when we all do You're gonna be surprised Just when you see what we can do Banded together With you Banded together With you Banded together With you, you, you you, you, you, you, you and you-hoo Rise up Bind, blend, and bond As one In unison Just put a little drop in And when we all do You're gonna be surprised Just when you see what we can do We're gonna make it right Marching through the night Lock those arms up tight You, you, you you, you You, you, you, you, yoo-hoo

It's the little things that remind me (Moving forward, moving forward) It's a piece of me that feels incomplete (Moving forward, moving forward) How can you be in a better place, when I am here without you? Your perfect skin and your liquid smile Has turned to ashes There's no one to call for recipes (Moving forward, moving forward) Or cheer me on when I've reached for dreams (Moving forward, moving forward) How can you be in a better place, when I am here without you? Your perfect skin and your liquid smile Has turned to ashes (Moving forward, moving forward) (Moving forward, moving forward) They say you're at peace (Moving forward, moving forward) That now your body's free (Moving forward, moving forward) How can you be in a better place, when I am here without you? (Moving forward, moving forward)

You Alone 03:18
And still the morning comes I expected for the world to end I never thought I’d breathe again, without you I never thought I’d breathe again, without you Still I will try to know The rush of emotions sure to come I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune I never thought I’d breathe again, without you I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune I never thought I’d breathe again, without you I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune

Stranger in my skin Child crying when Walk through these tangle roads Where time can begin Where do you sleep? Where do you dream? Behind the walls Between the stars Where light and love both fall Waiting for the call Where do you sleep? Where do you dream? Where do you sleep? Where do you dream? Where do you sleep? Where do you dream?

Doubt the stars are fire Vengeance, vengeance will be mine Doubt that the sun doth move Vengeance, vengeance will be mine Doubt truth to be a liar But never doubt That I love Father slain, mother stained Oh, calls for my vengeance Father slain, mother stained Oh, calls for my vengeance Doubt the stars are fire Vengeance, vengeance will be mine Doubt that the sun doth move Vengeance, vengeance will be mine Doubt truth to be a liar But never doubt That I love Father slain, mother stained Oh, calls for my vengeance Father slain, mother stained Oh, calls for my vengeance Doubt the stars are fire Doubt that the sun doth move Doubt truth to be a liar But never doubt That I love Calls for my vengeance

We had to see in the dark We were children of the night We had to be in the dark to be Children of the night My hair reached to the sky To try to reach your height You’re with the gods I’m with the rocks You read the cards I find the squats One more mystery, one more day They say leave me one more day One more mystery, one more day They say leave me one more day Holding out your hand to say, please Holding out your hand to say, give me please You’re with the gods I’m with the rocks You read the cards I find the squats You’re with the gods I’m with the rocks You read the cards I find the squats
