Track Name: DIVINE RIGHT
Divine Right

Flying forth
And tapping all the rings you find
Here you land
You don’t have anything to hide
You poured it all out
And now you fill it up with light
Our Empires
Are the gold we hold inside

(doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo)

Shining out
Wrap your arms around their crowns
Molten gold
Filling up their holes inside
Solid now
Your power gives them light to see
Dying Live
Yes, it’s happening this time

Slipping into clear
We’re singing louder
Through the sweet fire
Hey
Live

Remembering it through your own way
Aaaahhhhhh
You slip it on and sheath your cold
A highway
Shines ahead of you in golden tile
Time flies, counting all the stars you see
Exploring, soft, observing as you go...
Track Name: HEARTS CHANGE
Hearts Change

I used to lay low
Bent around the love of dear times
Betting on the only thing
That was around

I know it was real late
Looking out for anymore good times
Listening to sounds all around me
Hearing for a change of heart

I need a real show
Popping out with always better thoughts
Silently making me feel high
Knowing that the pills that I take will affect what I think

I need to get by
And no one needs to lose any sleep while
I sing about a string that’s hanging on
Hanging on a change of heart

I need a real show
Popping out with always better thoughts
Silently making me feel high
Knowing that the pills that I take will affect what I think

I don’t need to grow up
But then again I don’t wanna grow down
Deeper into something desensitized
I’m holding on for broke with the hope that the human hearts change…

Hearts change

Cashed out my crystals
Moving on into the back woods
Sleep until I hit another state of mind
I be a shadow up in the night

Some people get lucky
Sitting in the in the woods on a Saturday
Providing that everyone feels fine
Everybody in the world…

I need a real show
Popping out with always better thoughts
Silently making me feel high
Knowing that the pills that I take will affect what I think

I don’t need to grow up
But then again I don’t wanna grow down
Deeper into something desensitized
I’m holding on for broke with the hope that the human hearts change…
Track Name: HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW
Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

You're here today but you're gone tomorrow
you're gone tomorrow
we haven't the time
to express any sorrow
it goes around and it comes around
it's an escapable thing
you're soft to touch, yeah
you're hard as bone

you got wild fingers
they touch my bones.
Track Name: SAINT ME THE MARTYR
Saint Me the Martyr

oooooooooh (ohhhhh)
oooooooooh (ohhhhh)
oooooooooh (ohhhhh)
ooooooaaah (oohhh aaah)
aaaaahhhhh

Drawing our parts
Tied to you, I’m
Quartering mine (aahhhh)
I am remaining
In line

You will arrive.
You are near.
Who are you, when are
You here?

Too far into me.
You’re a god in my shape.
Too far and I’m changed.
Too far and now I pray.

ooooo aaaahhhh (oooooooo)
aaaaaaahhhhhhh (ah oh aah)
oooo aaaaahhh (oh aahh)
Track Name: NEVER SAY REVEN
NEVER SAY REVEN

I apologize for smiling too much
There isn’t a motion that doesn’t need touch
Going to bed with the midnight eyes
Tucked and flooded til the red sunrise

Desperate times call for desperate moves
Unless your light comes shining here
I can’t stand if my face makes fear
Calling up for the damage control…

Short stay for immediate calls
Slips I’m out through the window
Go to bed like your body should
Try to forget what you never said.

Serious is to me just fine
Tucked and flooded til the red sunrise

On the outside such a fool
Always high, celebrating you
Swelled up, thrilled up,
My heart’s falling into pieces
Complicate all the words you use
I’m willing to bet you’re too generous
I’m falling off the place I used to pretend to be in control from!!!

Never say reven...
Track Name: MARE
Mare

When I was a soldier
I painted my saddle bright
And though I was gored and beaten
My enemies I’d not strike

Goodnight, my daughter
I’ll rest ye well in my mind
And with veils of muslin white
I’ll bless you a saint’s requite

And now I’m a patron
A matron of heathen tithes
I’ll spare you my tales of war
Your lessons are in my eyes

I falter inside
with tender stones painted white
they roll and they tumble
Down rumbling to my soul

You’ll find that I’m nowhere
Shouting out to the world
With eyes that are so wide
Baring you the war inside

Goodnight, my soul wife
Hang on for your dear life
I’ll not go far
Imagine me on the sofa

To fall and go on
One last time I wish I might
But rising is for the young
I fall but for one last time
Track Name: HOLD ME MY NEW FRIEND
Hold Me My New Friend

You’re living on ground
You’re lving on light
You’re living living living on the whole…
p p p p p p planet…

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, hooray you are mine
Sing in anyway you are miiiine
You are no longer alone

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, you are blood to my bones

Here I am waiting to be moved in my mind
You have called my weary soul

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, hooray you are mine
Sing in anyway you are miiiine

Even though I spin and fall over
Even though I riiiiide
On the back on the patience of you
I’m still swollen in the heart when you call

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, you are blood to my bones
Sing in anyway you are miiiine
Track Name: WEIRDO TIP TOES
Weirdo Tip Toes

Again
Here they come again
Here they come again

We're watching them go when the lights are lowering
We're watching them come when the lights go high
We're watching them go when the lights feel lonely
We're watching them come when the lights go by

And here they come again
Here they come again
Here they come again
Here they come again

They watch and they come when the lights feel high
They watch and they go when the lights feel lonely

And here they come again
Here they come again
Here they come again
Here they come again now

The slippery slope is where you all departed
The slippery slope is where you'll all be fine
The time will come when there's no one speaking
The time will come when your loss is high

And here they come again
Here they come gently
Here they come again
Here they come quickly

Here they come again
Here they come again now
Here they come again now
Here they come again now

Sing wild chants
Take a wild chance
Outbound and reasonable
Speaking light things
Speaking light things
Coldly Bright
Speaking light things
To liberate
To serve the walking tides
To string a pearl of their lives
It's culling all their own ways

Now push this pall off, unlock
The arms, stand here are we one and all
Holding all our own

Speak no harm
Hold these arms
Wave them low
Roll them back
Raise, Elate
All the way
All the luck can rise in me

Wishing to roam when the load's upon me
Watching them come when their lights feel lonely

It's a striving heart thing
Got to haulweight off me
Look into the feel of my heart beat
Look into the feel of my heart beat
inside inside

It lives in my
It lives in my
It lives in my
It lives in my
It lives in my

Oh little little mine
Your little mine
Your little mines
Your little mines...

It's all bewtiching and the lights do shine
I'm over the edge this time this time
dododo mumumumnanana ahnnanan
Ohmpadedemdem
Halleloo halle halleloo
Halle-hallelujah
Only parting with the ugly side
What if we just kept it going endlessly
