Track Name: star crossed
We come down the mountain way
Far from home out in san jose
Or santa fe whats the fucking rhyme
Outta place baby outta time

They parade like the president
Make that face like they gonna win
And Emily would just turn away
And joey looks to her and says

We’re all standing on star-crossed ground
And we wont fight
We’re sick and we’re tired
Testify
We’ll all standing on star-crossed ground
And we’re on fire
Get sick and we die
No more sacrifice

It was no use remembering
She was old, he was young again
But every day’s like a spinning top
You never know when it’s gonna stop

It is all about the medicine
Make you sink baby make you swim
But all the world is a mandolin
All the tunes are contained within

We’re all standing on star-crossed ground
And we wont fight
We’re sick and we’re tired
Testify
We’ll all standing on star-crossed ground
And we’re on fire
Get sick and we die
No more sacrifice

She can talk you into anything
Make you think baby make you sing
Make you care baby make you love
Make you kiss baby make you hug

And they would travel from town to town
Create a sound on top of a sound
Illumintate your neighborhood
He wouldn’t tell her now if he could


We’re all standing on star-crossed ground
And we wont fight
We’re sick and we’re tired
Testify
We’ll all standing on star-crossed ground
And we’re on fire
Get sick and we die
No more sacrifice
Track Name: swept away
there's something in my eyes
i measure every grief i meet
with clocks and spoons and devils feet

with narrow probing eyes
i wonder if it weighs as much as mine
or is a smaller size

God is growing up above
and for those of us who pray
you can look forever and never see his face
and we're all swept away
anyway
we're all swept away

i wonder if i can?
i wonder if i'll ever hear replies?
if i'll ever get it right?
i'll play my rivals hand
and cover up the visions of the sun
and my life's a loaded gun

God is growing up above
and for those of us who pray
you can look forever and never see his face
and we're all swept away
anyway
we're all swept away

my faith is larger than
the hills so when those mighty hills decay
a wheel must show the soun the way
this is my final stand
it's graceful and mechanical and cold
as we watch the times unfold

God is growing up above
and for those of us who pray
you can look forever and never see his face
and we're all swept away
anyway
we're all swept away
Track Name: Petition
this was a marriage made in heaven
an imperfection, you and me
together we remain enchanted
forever free from agony
the trafic lights that skim the city
immaculate the skies, the stars
and in my path convincing eternity
we have seen night lifted by your arm

i'll be there
and vanish in the air
i declare
we will live without a care
i'm aware
it's a sickness i can't shake
i'm wide awake, and i declare...i'll be there

the sands of time are grey and rustling
strange years coarsing like a sword
a statistician's almost touching
the bitter cold, the blackened soul

i'll be there
and vanish in the air
i declare
we will live without a care
i'm aware
it's a sickness i can't shake
i'm wide awake, and i declare...i'll be there
Track Name: if i could
i'd give you everything if i could
i'd buy you diamond rings if i could
i'll be there by your side, day and night, black and white, morning light

i'll pray for our salvation if i should
i'll pray for domination if i should
whatever comes to mind, when it's time, day and night, black and white

i'll shed 1000 skins if you would
shed 1000 skins with me too
we'll be quite the pair
day and night
black and white
all is right
Track Name: angel
she got a face like an angel
she's my sweet lover girl
she picks up my chains now
and all the weight of the world
the pain it don't mean nothing
it don't mean a thing
she picks up my chains now
and all the trouble it brings

and all my loving
won't amount to nothin
if i'm afraid of the danger
forevermore
rock of ages
she turns my pages
my sweet little angel
my sweet lover girl

late in the evening
i would look in her eyes
be telling her stories
but we both know i lie
i can never grow up now
as my body gets old
she gives me heart like a child
an innocent soul

and all my loving
won't amount to nothin
if i'm afraid of the danger
forevermore
rock of ages
she turns my pages
my sweet little angel
my sweet lover girl
Track Name: the only song i know
dreams awaken and are washed out to the sea
a body reckons to the west and to the east
a little bit lonely? i can hear your moccasins
footsteps slowly through the snow and through the wind

she is a beauty, dark eyed beauty of the night
she's a cutey, she's so wrong when she's so right
alabaster, with frozen bitter smiles
faster, faster....miles, miles, miles, and miles


bye bye is the only song i know
bye bye is the only song i know
bye bye is the only song she knows
bye bye is the only song she knows
and she knows it oh so well

hear her a'comin;, bright as a sunny day
she come a runnin', and she'll take your breath away
once in a moment i can feel her falling down
once in a stone age, her feet will touch the ground

i'll take it to the end, to the sea
i'll make it for the war and for the peace
sing a believer, sing it loud and sing it hard
i'm a believer...after all it's after dark
Track Name: Christina's got....
striking a match alive
closing the gaps inside
she breaks a holy silence
she thinks that it's physical
or maybe electrical
magic got nothing on science

she has seen both of us
compact and dangerous
each drop in the bucket endured
she's always near to us
uncommonly dear to us
the line of affection are blurred

cristina' got clear eyes
and with her clear eyes
she sees vacant hands denied
the weak and weary wine

cristina's gotta clean it up
pull a rabbit from a rusty cup
she has magic for the both of us
she's got clear eyes
Track Name: Creation Straw
Her eyes glowing blue and all
Big as a basketball
Among a sea of soft stones
Whispers a soft song

Praise all creation
Praise God That made it
Praise for the new dawn
Praise old and new songs

He walks among them
Deep in the mud and
Dirt that becomes him
Strength overcomes sin

Praise all creation
Praise God That made it
Praise for the new dawn
Praise old and new songs
