Track Name: Conclusions
Don't draw your conclusions on me tonight Yeah just be aware of yourself don't fight Don't draw your conclusions on me Don't judge everything that you see Just take it all in and be free tonight Cause once your conclusions are drawn you're gone Disconnected from everything and everyone Yeah once your conclusions are drawn Your senses are too all day long You don't notice a thing that goes on at all Cause once your conclusions are drawn Your senses are too all day long You don't notice a thing that goes on at all Don't draw your conclusions on me Don't judge everything that you see Just take it all in and be free tonight Just let it all go and be free
Track Name: Universe Song
I wish I was a genuine star That you could see from wherever you are I wish I was a funeral cake You could eat and laugh again babe I wish I was an entire man And not a piece of shell in the sand But all those oceans and all of those skies And all the mysteries beyond them tonight So I will sing you a universe song It's good to know you weren't here all alone And death it's only a mask she will take Let's paint it up now the hour is late Mmm you can see so many stars tonight Hear so many babies crying Never been so many people running from the dying
Track Name: Beam With Us
Still alive and waiting on a landslide Just up the hill there's gotta be a friend of mine Who'll say just to survive you gotta be an island But no man is an island God knows I been trying My babies been dying I'm telling you twice I'm telling you The prices climb You can't afford to stand in that line Money is time Been sucked into that vacuum your whole life And when you wanna see the sky Gotta move out to the forest But you can't see the forest For the fences before you The stars shine imploring you Beam with us tonight Beam with us I'm always at the gate between everything Sunlit outside and the dark in me Semaphore wings in the parallax of the trees Blink golden and white But it's all in the mind And time is the crime Time is the crime
Track Name: I Never Knew
I was an angel child a saint I just believed in everything I couldn't tell you what it was I had no doubt to stem that flood The strings of pain were stretched out wide I never knew where they were tied Living was easy then it seemed All that you had to do was dream All that you had to do was mean All that you had to do was I been a prisoner child been free you never remember everything Living was easy then it seemed All that you had to do was All that you had The strings of pain were stretched out wide I never knew where they were tied I never knew where they were I never knew I never knew
Track Name: Dark Road
Baby I been on a dark road for a while And maybe you been on a dark road for a while And all of these letters they don't spell out a word No they don't But I got your number If I need to I promise I won't I never have have I No But baby I stood at that ocean for a while And maybe you stood at that ocean for a while Let's take all our words and lay em out in a line To the sun Cause we got that number from the beginning of the century We always have haven't we Yeah No/yeah
Track Name: Ain't Playing
I'm checking in when everybody's checking out Checking up where everybody's checking down Looking thru dead pages for some rhyme Ain't asking every five damn minutes for the time Cause I am making something But I ain't making a thing Cause if you're playing for keeps Then you ain't playing Just playing And if our lives were long enough we'd see Those great white mountains rolling like a giant beast A soundless river roaring from the East And it's just playing Ain't playing
Track Name: When I Had My Legs
When I had my legs I was a much crueler man But having a baby was never my plan So I ran away just like I always had On a blind arc round every last bend That train took my legs saved my life in the end Gave me back my gravity and Light years I just drifted a star seed thru space Past white dwarves and red giants nebula raging That train took my legs saved my life in the end Gave me back my gravity and Andante Andante my child you are free But there's always just one more frontier to reach I just sit in this chair making love sowing seeds That river is flowing inside me now see When I had my legs I was a much crueler man But now I'm as sweet as can be Yes now I'm as sweet as can be
Track Name: Bloodhounds
The bloodhounds are on my trail mama The bloodhounds are on my trail I close my eyes for an hour apiece and I'm off like a bat outta hell Been living so long for a much harder song And who learns my lessons complete Anatomy of love doll's just I put the weight on you You put the weight on me When I was a babe I was no longer than a seed Love waters tracing me No one escaping these When I am dead and gone and these reels have all dissolved into black leaves let any old wind carry one note of them From the canopy to the dark gorge Saint Sunshine is yawning The eyes I seen all in I ain't gonna see no more I ain't gonna sing no more mama I ain't gonna sing no more I ain't gonna say what it pays me to say I just ain't gonna see no more Ain't gonna sing
Track Name: Pink Chalk
So you will know why it has passed you by You clamored to be heard Pink chalk and a sidewalk One kid can move a block to change the world So you will know why you are here tonight This gift it opens you Pink chalk and a sidewalk One tune can knock this block right out of view And all that love you've been saving for some rainy day's a waste Cause the sun is here to stay And today well There is no other day Let us save you from that fate Let us help you to retrace Cause the mind can be a maze Helps to know your way around
Track Name: Two-Part Invention
See how the chips fall where they may How my lips sink ships drift astray How I've missed you I've been a bad boy But seventeen it takes forever and me I was already on fire Dreaming with angels Remember every little thing You've got to remember every little thing My child there I know I'm coming to get you but oh I'm running so slow like a dream And the dawn it is quickening My friends they all thought I was the one who was lost I learned that irony from the start of my life Remember every little thing You've got to remember every little thing Trumpets peal I've realized all that's real And love is a white golden road I pave with my blood now I was a fraction at best A sad king's court jester or less I was a two-part invention She was my melody God she was my melody
