Track Name: Lady In The Lake
Used to go skinny dipping
Trapping love in a lake
Wading slowly
Gripping sun with a rake
Now the pool in your heart is frozen
And i never did learn how to skate
But it doesn't matter anyway
I'm on the wrong side of the water
Oh wont you listen to the lady in the lake

We drifted swiftly
Paper sails in the breakers
We buried treasure
There was nothing to take
And the pool in your mouth is frozen
And I never did learn how to skate
But it doesn't matter anyway
I'm on the wrong side of the water
Oh wont you listen to the lady in the lake
No it doesn't matter anyway
I'm on the wrong side of the water
She's frozen love, as you left her
Out of whos womb came the ice
And the hoary frost of heaven
Who hath gendered it
The waters are hid as with a stone
And the face of the deep is frozen
No it doesn't matter anyway
I'm on the wrong side of the water
Oh won't you listen to the lady in the lake
No it doesn't matter anyway
I'm on the wrong side of the water
She's frozen love as you left her
Fish out the lady in the lake
Track Name: Jack In The Box
It's been seven years now, living in this box
Closed in on all sides, no light, just dark
He kept me under the bed, I'd pray for it to stop
He'd lock me safely away, and lie on top
Pop the latches open the hatches
Out comes Jack in the box
Doing tricks and taking licks
Out comes Jack in the box
I was an uncut marionette hanging by steel cable threads
I was a shadow dancer a thousand shades of red
There's too much light it's far too bright
I see things much too clearly
There's too much light, it far too bright
weary, oh so weary
If this is all of life outside
Please put me where I am happy
Where I won't know what to think of this
Black in black, almost sleeping
Pop the latches open the hatches, out comes jack in the box
Doing tricks and taking licks, out comes jack in the box
Please lock me up
Shut me up
Shut up your jack in the box
Track Name: Off Or Out
Can't get you off or out of my
Can't get you off or out of my
Can't get you off or out of my head
Head for the sun in your belly
You need a soul to find you out
Make you windy windy
We were so windy winding flying
Backwards rolling sliding
Red light crazy shining
Haze garden pure strain highway
Can't get you off or out of my
Can't get you off or out of my
Can't get you off or out of my head
Red silver suns in your belly
You need a dream to drown you out
Make you windy windy we were so windy
Winding dying inside sucking outside
Spouting heavy moonlight
Dazed shotgun your stain my way
Can't get you off or out of my
Can't get you off or out of my
Can't get you off or out of my head
Track Name: Fountains On Fire
Last night in a dream
I travelled for years and years
Galaxies, centuries
No one was there, it was bare and arid
Red earth, eternal dusk
Had to keep moving, walked for miles
Fusing force, broke the dials
And there in the distance
Heard them ringing, felt it stinging my insides
Saw them trembling white
Saw the trembling
trembling white
Fountains on fire
Fountains on fire
Fountains on fire
I've arrived
Swallowed the spray, erased my face, kissed the curve
Met the end, drenched dream
Torched the final curtain
Changed my destiny in the shivering light
Bathing in the shivering white
Bathing in the shimmering white
Fountains on Fire
Fountains on Fire
Fountains on Fire
I've arrived
When you see me, burn me down
Track Name: Star
round round and around
surrounding my planet
arousing my planet
round round and around
surrounding my planet
arousing my planet
my heart beats madly like a drum
beaten chamber almost numb
it's beating faster and faster
slow down dear, slow down
round round and around
flying me forward
thrusting me far
round round and around
you caught me a star
you can make me if you try
gently like a lullaby
you dig me deeper and deeper
go down dear, go down
you are the ink drawing me
you are the mouth gnawing me
yours is the voice calling me star
you can make me if you try
gently like a lullaby
hold me tight inside your arms
make me feel just like a star
like a star
you can find me if you try
slip into the needles eye
fold me, hold me like a charm
make me feel just like a star
like a star
Track Name: Anything You Like
you can lift that tremble right between my eyes
you can study deep tongues til your blind and wise
you can slide into the earth
and you can witness your own birth
you can brush the shadow's kiss
and you can scratch your wildest itch
alive alive i will awaken you
alive alive you will awaken
you can do anything you like
you can plant the dagger of destiny
you can taste the spine that's you and me
you can sing the bitter temple's song
you can be the sand or bang the gong
you can trace patterns in the sky
and you can ride the angels when they fly
you can do anything
you can do anything you like
anything you like
anything you like
alive alive I will awaken you
alive alive you will awaken
Track Name: Sugarplum Arches
Engrave me with that base
And shudder
You can't save me
Raving rampant stroking
Mad vein voltage burn
Electric shock love
Gotta lock my eyes
Make it hum make it hum
Over the river and thru the woods
Shoot your honey dove
Shoot your honey dove
Raking the air with those sugar plum arches
Queen Bone above
Queen Bone above
Cheeky
Baring down to gnaw at the fruit of your tree
To the ends of your root
Flank embankment
Sell my sullied rich and rising
Spanking dank sharp pain
Snaky bleeding heart brain
Over the river and through the woods
Shoot your honey dove
Shoot your honey dove
Raking the air with those sugar plum arches
Queen Bone above
Queen Bone above
Lemme be your salt lick
Salt lick salt lick
Lemme be your salt sap
Wet lap dream
Mad vein voltage churn
Rubbing gutter butter
Gotta sigh hip rise
Make it hum
Make it hum
Make it hum
Make it hum
Make it hum
Track Name: Parachute
Something's calling my sunshine to the store
He thinks he'll get what he needs there
Sirens hide under each crack and wicked scar
They even made him a superstar
Someday you will wear a noble crown
And only you'll need to feel it
We're not letting this humble ship go down
We just need to steer it
And i burn it
Keep repeating it
My prayer
Don't give in out there
Holding fast to my John the Conqueror root
Lucky Hand don't desert me now
If you ever need a parachute
You can fall free with me baby
And I burn it, keep repeating it
My prayer
Don't give in out there
And I burn it
I keep repeating it
My prayer
Don't give in
And I burn it
I keep repeating it
My prayer
Don't give in
And I burn it
Keep repeating it
My prayer
Don't give in
Track Name: Gracie Lyons
Gracie Lyons
Gracie Lyons
Well you can cross now
You can cross now
You bled so long
You bled so long
But you can cross now
You can cross now
You tricked and traded
You tricked and traded
But you're the boss here
You're the boss here
You casted wrong
You casted wrong
You had the wrong fly
You had the wrong fly
Track Name: Rolling
I wanna steam you open
Wanna swim your ocean
We would fly
I wanna suck your motions
Exorcise devotions
Never die
And growing you inside the star's eye
You fascinate the loops with open belt
If dreams were we
I'd be the sea
And you're some crazy fisherman
Your line's on fire
You're caught in my tide
Your sky's exspiring
You're rolling again
I wanna let you see it
Wanna truly free it
You and I
I wanna bleed your cedar
Until it gives me fever and I'm high
And knowing you, you'll ride the far side
You liberate the moon from it's hung shelf
If dreams were we, I'd take the lead
You're down on your knees
The wave is rising
A blink is all you need
Now you're inside me
Rolling again
Track Name: Mermaid
Remember how you found me
Under a low bent half moon
I must have been singing for you
I'd never left the water
Though I once knew some flying fish
Thought I'd forget how to swim
I am your mermaid
I give to you freely
But soon as you see me I'm gone, gone
I am your mermaid
Tangled but blissful
Knock me a kissful of nectar, honey
The water is hot
And you hold my head
As sores of the day slip through the shore's threads
I'd never felt such rapture
A glimpse at the lighthouse
Undo myself from your hanging mouth
I am your mermaid
Tangled but blissful
Knock me a kissful of nectar, honey
I am your mermaid
I opened your mortal need
You planted your opal seed of love, love
I am your mermaid
I am your mermaid
I am your mermaid
