Track Name: Nothing More to Say
We left our backs on a patch of grass
Where the millipedes shivered and sighed
Shadows were green and they started to sing
With an ocean of dewdrops inside

Branches grew long and you sang along
With words only you could understand
I opened my eyes and you gazed in surprise
At the color spewing from our hands

I haven’t got any more words
Nothing more to say
Nothing I should really say

But haven’t you already heard?
The freedom is just like a bird
So I want to fly away
And say what I want to say

Feeding upon golden rays of the sun
You know it’s what keeps me alive
A celebration for every vibration
Cause these two feet were made to jive

Me and my brain, think I’ll go insane
Cause it’s not hard to keep to myself
The people say that they want me to stay
But I bet they could hardly tell

I haven’t got any more words
Nothing more to say
Nothing I should really say

But haven’t you already heard?
The freedom is just like a bird
So I want to fly away
And say what I want to say
Track Name: Starlight
Can you see the sand that's flowing
Through your eyes and out your ears?
Under a sea of ground that's glowing
From distant lights we can only hear

And I wonder...

Do you eat the minors lettuce
And pray to her you grow above the sky?
The flaming fireweed will reach out to get us
We'll run away and sing "oh me oh my"

And I wonder...

Have you dreamt about things we haven't yet?
Can you read the starlight and never forget?
Have you dreamt about things we haven't yet?
Did you taste the starlight and never forget?

Wind wakes the meadow flicker and sway now
Just like your soul it has nowhere to be
Well soon these shadows will disappear now
For you have stolen its recipe

And I wonder...

Have you tasted the last drops of autumn
And sunk into the holes where mothers laugh?
You have not wasted every hum
You have drawn out like strings of sap

And I wonder...

Do you dream about things we haven't yet?
Did you taste the starlight and never forget?
Do you dream about things that we haven't yet?
Did you hold the starlight and never forget?
Track Name: My Blue Vest
Only a matter of time to go
He will make his way to town (x2)

Only a matter of time to go
He will make his way to town
Oh what's the matter, is it time to go
Redefine our fleshy gowns?

Wearing my blue vest, dressed up like Saturn
We held your chest and messed up your patterns
I hope he knows the roses on our cheeks
So unique, but it doesn't matter to me

"Doesn't really matter" one man said to me
"You know it's all in the mind"
You don't have to wonder where you're gonna be
For your deal with the devil's already been signed

Wearing my blue vest, dressed up like Saturn
I filled your nest with crocodile patterns
I hope he knows the roses on our cheeks
So unique, but it doesn't matter to me

Only a matter of time to go
He will make his way to town (x2)
Only a matter of time to go
Won't believe what he has found
Track Name: February Showers
When the blossom takes me down it's silver slopes
And when the blossom shakes me and wraps around my toes
I have grown so tired but I won't be for long
I have grown so tired, I'm still writing songs

I don't know why they hide the sun's rays
But February showers seems to brighten up the day
I don't know why they hide the moon's rays
But February showers seems to brighten up the day

I have grown so weary, trapped under bags of cloth
And I have grown so weary, so says my friend the moth
Thunder sings the same song, it's rattling under my feet
Thunder sings the same songs that I try to repeat

I don't know why they hide the sun's rays
But February showers seem to brighten up the day
I don't know why they hide the moon's rays
But February showers seem to wash the night away
I don't know why they hide the sun's rays
But February showers seem to brighten up the day
Track Name: Pack of Wolves
Ground is like a mirror, sidewalk like stone
Only getting nearer to that old folks home
Headed to a party, party for some man
Who's left his mother's womb now in some distant land

Now I don't feel so alone
Now I, I don't feel so alone

The people at the party look like they live on a battle ground
And they surround me like a pack of wolves
Like a pack of wolves (x6)

There's some men inside me, and some women too
I'm not sure which one I might be, but I think it could be you
Looking for a lady who's got gold rainbows in her purse
She can turn me into a baby and my dog into a hearse

Then I don't feel so alone
No I don't feel so alone

The people in the city look like they live underground
And the surround me like a flock of doves
Or like a pack of wolves (x9)

Oh yippy yoo ay ey
Track Name: So Long Ago
I lived in a tree long ago
Way up high with the bears and the bees
Just you and me long ago
Close my eyes until I see those days, so long ago

And we swam in the creek long ago
With the fish and the fleas in our hair
Still running free long ago
Mouths breathing the watery air, so long ago

Sometimes I think that you are me

And who were we long ago?
Passing time like grains of sand
Still running free long ago
Distant voices from a distant land, so long ago

We are the same, some would agree

So leave me where the weather is gentle
Keep me lit like a candle in your mind

Just you and me long ago
Track Name: All We Need
The sun looked down at your child
It's growing in the bones of your cheeks
Making you run far and wild
Your soul will find what it seeks

All we need is underneath
These calloused thorns and cactus trees
All we need is plain to see

Summer's still feeling shy
It's hiding under plates of glass
Waiting for the wells to run dry
We knew it wouldn't last

All we need is yet to be
Like unicorns with wounded knees
All we need is plain to see
Track Name: Silence
You offer up your silence, you offer up your words
Cigarettes and coffee were a past time for this bird
Now we don’t have to run away from the center of our bodies
Now we can just have fun, we’ll hurt nobody

Cigarettes and coffee were a past time for this bird
Until we left college and we discovered some new words
We don’t have to beg on the streets anymore
We don’t have to beg for each other’s hard earned sores

I love you like the ocean, but with a little more volume
Cause I got swept in the motion of each pose that you would consume
I know I’ve written this song at least one time before
I know it won’t be long till I find another you

You offer up your silence, you offer up your words
And I love your grace; you move just like a bird
I know that you aren’t mine; I know that you’ll be just fine
The trumpeter behind me tells the secrets that are on my mind
It may be sweet sad pretty but he speaks the hard truth
I’m gonna live in the city, I’m gonna live in this phone booth

Cigarettes and coffee were the past times for us birds
You offer up your silence, you offer up your words

You offer up your silence, you offer up your words
Cigarettes and coffee were a past time for our world
Gone away
