Track Name: Severland
Lyrics:

I’m lost in Severland, I’ll never make my way home even though I try
Grief stuck on me, I can’t cut her loose, she only lets me cry

I was advised and warned to have my pain, then wash it clean
I did not take heed now that wicked thing... it lives it me.

Aaahhh. I’ll never be free. Ahhhh. Because it lives in me.

The fall wind blows, and the white fog rolls in across the sky
Sad struck me down, I can’t turnaround, she likes to see me cry

Aaahhh. She likes to see me cry. Ahhhh. She never lets me fly

I’m sorry I let go, I’m always with you
I’m sorry I didn’t know, I always miss you
I’m sorry I couldn’t stop us

I’m lost in Severland, I’ll never make my way home even though I try
Grief stuck on me, I can’t cut her loose, she only lets me cry

I was advised and warned to have my pain, then wash it clean
I did not take heed now that wicked thing... it lives it me.


Aaahhh. I swear I’ll never be free.
Somebody help me, this thing lives in me.

I’m sorry I let go, I’m always with you
I’m sorry I didn’t know, I always miss you
I’m sorry I couldn’t stop us from our heartache
Track Name: Fillmore Street
Lyrics:

I took up breathing this morning
It hurts, but still, at least there's pain
My feet were flying off the pavement
I turned down Fillmore Street again

I think I'm onto something, baby
You can't tell me I'm not changed
The woolen blankets won't console me
I turned down Fillmore Street again

Feel more, Feel
Feel, Feel
Feel more, Feel
I turned down Fillmore Street again

And like the earth that's week with water
I'm a mudslide coming down, down, down
But underneath this ruined monster
Something green is pushing up
Something green is pushing up
Something green is pushing

Feel more, Feel
Feel, Feel
Feel more, Feel
I turned down Fillmore Street again

All the world
And I'm alive in it
All the world
And I'm alive, I'm alive

Feel more, Feel
Feel, Feel
Feel more, Feel
I turned down Fillmore Street again
Track Name: House Of The Living
Lyrics:

Peel away the dark, it’s old and hard
but far below
my heart is young and shy
Peel away the years,
acquired fears and hidden tears
that helped a girl survive

Because I feel like heaven and hell
could meet right here in your arms

The schizophrenic segregations
Every trend a sovereign nation
Shallow waters filled with gold
Do you dare to ask the question
Give me more than fifteen seconds
Do you really want to know?

Because I feel like heaven and hell
could meet right here in your arms

Peel away the cruel indifference
We can’t pretend innocence
because there’s nothing we don’t know
Peel away the advertisements
selling pleasures with no substance
on a shining road to nowhere
Give me all of your love
what is wretched, what is soft
Let me hate you, let me care

Because I feel like heaven and hell
could meet right here in your arms

Peel away the mediocre image brokers
They’re jokers and the jokes on us
Peel away the television selling
bleak and twisted visions
of a world that’s lost
Track Name: If You Tell A Lie
Lyrics:

If you tell a lie again and again
it does not become the truth in the end
If your voice is loud and your lies are well heard
still it does not mean transformation has occurred

Water isn’t wine, brass isn’t gold
One day you’ll account for all the lies that you told

If you take the forest, if you steal it tree by tree
If you blacken the river, if you desecrate the sea
You can wave your arms,
You can shout out from on high
But the truth is still the truth
and a lie is still a lie

Water isn’t wine, brass isn’t gold
One day you’ll account
for all the priceless things you sold

You can speak of God
while you lead your Holy War
As if your hands weren’t stained
by the oil you adore
More innocents will die
and more soldiers will fall
You name your church for God
but it was greed that built those walls

Water isn’t wine, brass isn’t gold
One day you’ll account
for all the lives that you stole

Two faced yes fool
Pin striped suit ghoul

You can make a promise
and some people might believe
That you are not beholden to the power,
to the greed
But if they should fall ill,
or their schools should fall down
Should they fall on hard times
Well I doubt you'll be around

Water isn't wine, brass isn't gold
And it's wrong that we should pay
for a crown that you stole
Water isn't wine, brass isn't gold
One day you'll account
for all the lies that you told
Track Name: Besalu
Lyrics:

The colored glass, the ancient stone
You and I stood there alone
A banner from the summer gone
hailed 1000 years
A chair suspended from a wall
A Roman bridge that did not fall
when bombs arrived in 1936

The light that followed us around
I fell in love in that old town
where nothing changes,
nothing goes away

Along the road we saw a man
who ducked his head
but raised his hand
Then walked inside a gate
and crossed a field
He might have been ten decades old
I wonder what it’s like to know
something so well it’s like there’s nothing else

The light that followed us around
I fell in love in that old town
where nothing changes,
nothing goes away

I can see you standing
on the edge of that field
Timid, unfamiliar with our mood
And I can feel your arm around
my shoulders as we walk
along the cobbled streets of Besalu

The bells that told us it was time
to catch the Barcelona line
Shadows marked the ending of a day

The light that followed us around
I fell in love in that old town
where nothing changes,
nothing goes away
Track Name: A Thousand Tiny Pieces
Lyrics:

We will play his one out
‘til it explodes
into a thousand tiny pieces
What is your story, Universe
You are melody and numbers
You are shapes and you are rhythms
There are signs that we can learn
to place over the heavens
to predict how long they will burn
How long will it last
Can I turn up the heat
What star am I circling
What is circling me
Now my ebb and my flow
My lack of control
Turning on turning off
Saying yes but playing no
Track Name: Moth To A Flame
Lyrics:

Sexy as a panther, charm a mile wide
Brighter than the moon
on a clear mountain night
Wild as a dragon, crazy as a loon
I knew it when you walked in the room

I can’t stay away
Old salty dog and the sea
I can’t stay away
Moth to a flame got nothin’ on me

Bold as an opera, deep as roots on a tree
Smooth as your wet ruby lips on me
Bottle on the table, candlelight dream
Fine drop is all that I need

I can’t stay away
Old salty dog and the sea
I can’t stay away
Moth to a flame got nothin’ on me

Hits me in the chest, cradles my heart
A mystery as simple as counting every star
Time disappears, the magic remains
A song keeps calling my name

I can’t stay away
Old salty dog and the sea
I can’t stay away
Moth to a flame got nothin’ on me

My passions play to me every day
Ain’t nothing in this crazy little world
gonna keep me away

I can’t stay away
Old salty dog and the sea
I can’t stay away
Moth to a flame got nothin’ on me
Track Name: Give A Damn
Lyrics:

Take a harder road than the one you took before
Going with the flow, turning back at every door
‘Cause you’re older now,
You’re stronger now
You’re smarter now

A tree grows high when the roots go deep
Your peace will come, but it won’t come cheap
If you take this hand and you play for keeps
and you give a damn
and you give a damn

You’ve been hiding out
You’ve been holding back your love
I could teach you how
but you’d have to let me touch
And not run away
on the seventh day
though you feel afraid

A tree grows high when the roots go deep
Your peace will come, but it won’t come cheap
If you take this hand and you play for keeps
and you give a damn
and you give a damn

Time slips by, you can’t deny
the heart that wants to beat
The price you pay along the way
makes what you get more sweet
You can run and you can hide
and you can isolate
But you can not escape
no you can not escape

A tree grows high when the roots go deep
Your peace will come, but it won’t come cheap
If you take this hand and you play for keeps
and you give a damn
and you give a damn
Track Name: Trouble
Lyrics

Well, I’m in trouble…
Well you come up from the fire
and you’re calling out my name
I can’t hide in holy water
Feel the heat right through the rain
I got pleasure double
I’m in trouble and it’s heaven
I like misbehavin’
and your pastures look so green
I’m about to show you
what I don’t want you to see
I got pleasure double
I’m in trouble and it’s heaven

There’s a place for me
between the heavens and the deep
that’s sometimes dark and sometimes sweet
I’m gonna take this ride for a little while
You know what I mean

You say rules are just for reference
So take me across that yellow line
You provide the inspiration
That I need to feel inclined
I got pleasure double
I’m in trouble and it’s heaven

There’s a place for me
between the heavens and the deep
That’s sometimes dark and sometime sweet
I’m gonna take this ride for a little while
You know what I mean

Well I’m not afraid of wisdom
but I like flying blind
I still want my salvation
but I’m gonna take my time
I got pleasure double
I’m in trouble and it’s heaven

There’s a place for me
between the heavens and the deep
That’s sometimes dark and sometime sweet
I’m gonna take this ride for a little while
You know what I mean
Track Name: Orange
Lyrics:

She hates to comb her hair
She hates to take a bath
but once she’s in that tub,
you’ll never get her out
She loves to ride a horse
She loves a summer swim
Never hurt a heart,
so she won’t choose a best friend

Orange, Orange
Her favorite color orange
Big ball of fire, sweet citrus storm

She’ll beat you bad at Boggle
In Scrabble let you tie
I’m a little shy to say
she’s read more books than I
Her words are few and far
unless there’s pen in hand
Then she’ll write you out a story
about her mama’s band

Orange, Orange
Her favorite color orange
Tigers turned to kittens
on the day that she was born

Light, light is the dusk
and I worry sometimes,
I’m not worthy of the trust
Sweet, sweet is the dawn
It’s a privilege beyond…
any privilege
She’s a crazy cuddle bug
An endless sofa spud
She always slows me down
to watch a movie about love
She can tear up like a well
and water’s all around
I try to swim along
so I don’t miss a sound

Orange, Orange
Her favorite color orange
Tigers turned to kittens
on the day that she was born
Track Name: Devil To Pay
Lyrics:

There’s a devil in my baby’s house
In my baby’s house
When the sun falls
That’s when she comes around
That’s when she comes around
There’s a devil, and she knows his name
Yes, she knows his name
When he’s lonely
When the sun goes down
When he’s falling
that’s when she comes around
to my baby’s house
Calling…Calling….

I don’t know what to say
I can’t help anyway
It’s your devil to pay

In the morning, that’s when baby cries
That’s when my baby cries
And he suffers, and he feels regret
And he struggles, but he can’t forget
No he can’t forget
Calling…Calling….

I don’t know what to say
I can’t help anyway
It’s your devil to pay

There’s a devil
In my baby’s house
In my baby’s house
And we battle but it’s not my fight
No, it’s not my fight
When he’s lonely
When the sun goes down
When he’s falling
That’s when she comes around
To my baby’s house
Calling…Calling….

I don’t know what to say
I can’t help anyway
Every night, every day
I can’t take it away
I can’t take it away
It’s your devil to pay
Track Name: Long Time With You
Lyrics:

I saw the way you light a room
the night I met you
In that light I just knew
we’d be together
Something old, something new
I borrowed all that’s true
and gave away the blue
Years gone longing for a kiss
and a touch of fire
Ended sweetly with a wish
and an angel choir
Love had never felt like this,
All roads open wide
To bring me home at night

I want to live a long time with you
Let me have a long time with you
I want to take a long time with you
Let’s say we do

I know we’ll have our troubled times,
Stormy points of view
I’ll be steady by your side,
We’ll walk right through
Copper, steel, pearls and wine
I promise you we’ll fly
Right through that diamond sky

I want to live a long time with you
Let me have a long time with you
I want to take a long time with you
Let’s say we do

Let’s say we do, Let’s say I do,
My love is true, long time

I want to live a long time with you
Let me have a long time with you
I want to take a long time with you
I know I’ll be a long time with you
I want to be a long time with you...
Let’s say we do, never be through,
Long time with you
