Track Name: Milk & Honey
Milk & Honey

As the light falls on your sweet face
And the night crawls across this desperate place
The dust, falls on us

When the earth is longing to sleep
And the walls are stone cold wombs where we weep
The dust, falls on us

Saw you laugh, breath it in take it in
You taste just like, death in the wind
Feel the sin in your sails and fly right where you begin
Right to me, right to me, right to where you left me

When it comes I reach for your hand
In your gasp you breathe their demands
And the dust falls on
The dust falls from
The dust falls in
The dust is us
Track Name: T.A.B
TAB

I go to the garden
my good intentions were sown
you said this move would be dangerous
I check myself for the safety

I came to walk with the flowers
Confident they would grow
Watch myself for the lifelines
Reveal the seeds that I’ve blown

Wear your boulders weight my dear
You sure you want it back
Jump into the clearing but
Be sure to loose your lack

I go to the garden
I wanna walk with the crowd
Want to dance with the ageless
Wanna sing like I’m proud

I ask the fool in the desert
I ask the one in the rain
Is this the kind of emotion
Where I don’t feel no pain

Wear your boulders weight my dear
You sure you want it back
Jump into the clearing but
Be sure to loose your lack

Anyone can do this
Anyone can do this
Anyone can talk about Hollywood Bollywood
Fiji Japan all the things that make a man
Can’t you see through this
Tits ass and bullshit
Track Name: January's Well
January’s Well

Down in the caverns, down in the mines, I am waiting for you and one of your kind
You’ll find the answers you’ll find the time, down in the caves you’ll find mine
Get out your pick axe and chip at the stones, it’s too dark to see when you’re nearing my home
If you strike copper or silver or lime it’s the moment that counts not what you’ve left behind
Find me, find me, find me and I’ll find you

Past the orchard, past January’s well, ‘neath the tall punga trees where we first kissed, first fucked
Grace hung like windmills high on the hill, danced ‘neath the rain, got wet when we touched
I don’t dare go there except for with you, one bite of the apple may reveal it’s not true
So baby I’ll wait here, live here with you, die in the moment like you wanted me to
Find me, find me, find me and I’ll find you

Keep singin’ in the same old groove, take the needle out and I’ll keep spinning
Keep singin’ in the same old groove scratch the surface and I’ll keep spinning
Keep singin’ in the same old groove

We broke the record
Track Name: 78
78

How do I feel, better than most
I’ve got my hand up, waiting to boast
That I’m a record breaker baby I’m the best that you’ve seen
I’m a record breaker baby and you know what I mean

I’ve got the anthem, we can dance all night
The music’s sweeter from my soul than all the candy you supply
See as a record breaker baby you dance like a machine
Yeah I’m a record breaker baby all the honey’s in me

You’re so, you’re so, you’re so, you’re so

Ain’t got no answers, I take it back
You made a fool of my wolf’s clothing and I’m down with the pack
See as a record breaker babe those out to kill call you mean
Yeah I’m a record breaker babe, just to survive I must be free

You’re so, you’re so, you’re so, you’re so

You say I’m so this, so what! You play em till you keep em’ shut
Revolution spreads herself wide
You say I’m just so, what you know? Let’s liberate the radio
Come see my soul amplified, I like it live

See I’m a record breaker babe I know you feel it in me
Yeah I don’t wanna separate us, we’s just got to be free
Cause I’m the party I’m the peach come take a bite outta me
Ground breakin’ record breaker babe just to survive I must be me

You’re so, you’re so, you’re so, you’re so, you’re so what
Track Name: Ain't No Craft
AInt' No Craft

I can’t see you again cause it’s too hard to take
I’m afraid if I do that I just might find I made a mistake
I know I was wrong to think that you sang all of your songs for me
But when I looked in your eyes I saw past the disguise and felt we were free

I can’t whisper your name without holding my breath that you are here
To say my name just the same we’d make music our words without any fear
I know it’s not true that my face would turn blue while I wait for your harmony
For the chorus and verse I’ll keep my lips tightly pursed just in case you believe

When I kissed you it was from here, right near my heart, right near my heart
I let my kiss go with the wind, soared like a dart - it tore me apart

I can’t ask for it back even if I had the glue
To patch me together again there ain’t no craft that could mend me to you
My thoughts will get tangled and torn at the seams and you’ll see me through
I know I’ll want more cause i like to explore and you’re afraid you do too

When I kissed you it was from here, right near my heart, right near my heart
I let my kiss go with the wind, soared like a dart - straight to your heart

I shot a bulls-eye
I shot a bulls-eye
I shot a bulls-eye
Right to you

When I kiss you it’s from here, right near my heart, right near my heart
I let myself go with the wind, soared like a dart - keeps us apart
Track Name: Shoot Em Up
Shoot em up

Shoot em up again my love
You said this would be the end and that’s it, not again
These bullet holes I can’t mend when you’re gone

Hurt me like you hurt yourself
Just wars just tend to lead to more, wars
Cause fighting’s not so fun, when you’ve won

Baby I’ll dress up for you like the stories you sell
You’ll be the cowboy and me I’m the Indian going to hell
Makes no difference I can’t win cause I don’t have a gun
Got to run from you babe when you tell me to run
Babe I’ll never be a cowboy so why keep on chasing
The Indian

Bet your bottom dollar when you dealt
You had a play for every card so you’d win, hands down
If I fold I loose so much I have to play another round

My arms so bent from wrestling that I’m spent
Hope like hell a parlor girl will come catch your eye, just long enough
To shake my fists up to the sky and act like I’m tough

Baby I’ll dress up for you like the stories you sell
You’ll be the cowboy and me I’m the Indian going to hell
Makes no difference I can’t win cause I don’t have a gun
Got to run from you babe when you tell me to run
Babe I’ll never be a cowboy so why keep on chasing
The Indian
Palestinian
Now it’s the Muslim
We’re all Indian
Track Name: Renegade
Renegade

Remember la higuara the day they took your tags and told you to go
You smelt like death and smoke I carved the words you wrote
Can’t seem to fall asleep with you here next to me

there’s a leftist, there’s a right
there’s a war on appetite
there’s a left, there’s a right
and there’s a score

Just like a renegade you read the names of those of us who got in the way
You let the fire burn, hell you fanned it and you taught them to learn
Now in your arms I lay, with these arms I could blow you away

there’s a leftist, there’s a right
there’s a war on appetite
there’s a left, there’s a right
and there’s a score

so you say you wanna reach the mecca – faith - you choose it like a beggar
so you say you wanna reach the mecca – faith - you choose it like a beggar
so you say you wanna reach the mecca – faith - you choose it like a beggar
so you say you wanna reach the mecca – faith - you choose it like a beggar

there’s a leftist, there’s a right
there’s a war on appetite
there’s a left, there’s a right
and there’s a score
there’s a leftist, there’s a right
there’s a war on appetite
there’s a left, there’s a right
and there’s a score
Track Name: Blue
Blue

I tried so hard to take you there
Tried so hard when the love wasn’t there
You asked for me to take your hand, well I’ve lost
All my trust I don’t understand

My past don’t leave me never
And your touch don’t make it better
It’s gone now forever

I climb out of out city basement
There’s a world outside above the cement
There’s colors and hues I never found in you
But I’m drawn to the shadows to shelter from all this new

My past don’t leave me never
And your touch don’t make it better
It’s gone now forever, yes it’s gone now forever

Blue can we surface it
Blue can we surface it
Blue can we surface it
Blue

I tried so hard to find the truth
Tried so hard but it’s not locked up in you
It’s here with me underneath the trees, by the
Light of day I can see what’s you, what’s me

My past don’t leave me never
And your touch don’t bring us together
You’re gone now forever
Yes you’re gone now forever

Blue, we’ll never know
Track Name: Autumn Kites
Autumn Kites

I thought that you said
You’d be back in the summer
We’d dig in the garden and roll down the back yard hill
But you weren’t coming back
And you knew I knew that
Gone with the seasons got lost in the reasons to stay
Where you are

Now the summer’s gone fast
I plant this and that
Hoping I’m growing the seeds that I sowed with you
I see city lights
It’s just about night
Can’t help but thinking that I know where you are

Where you are is like
A rerun that’s stuck in my head
Where you are is like
Tide leaving sea foam on sand
It’s there for a moment
But like your reflection
It’s gone with the wind
And I don’t know which way I’m going

I blow summer a kiss
That I meant for your lips
Soars like the autumn kites
Soars till it’s out of sight
I let go of the slack
Cause I’m wanting you back
Can’t help but look for the one that got away

You slip through my fingers
Did you pull or did I let you go
Does a leaf want to stay when it lingers
Does the wind break it’s grasp as she blows
I think we’re all drifting round making sense of what comes and what goes
Till we find where we are
Track Name: Wrecking Ball
Wrecking ball

You say you’re having no fun I want you like a wrecking ball
You got me high on the run now I want you and I’ll never get bored
I’m getting bored

You say you’re having no fun now I want you like a wrecking ball
You’ve got me high on the run I’m gonna catch you and I’ll feel no remorse
I’m feeling remorse
I’m getting remorse

You broke the record you’re first on the track
You’ve got your comeback you’ve got your comeback
You cut the tape won the victory lap
You’ve got your comeback you’ve got your comeback

You say you’re having no fun, now I want you like a wrecking ball
You got me high on the run I’m gonna get ya and I’ll never get bored
I’m feeling remorse
Yeah I’m so fucking bored

You broke the record you’re first on the track
You’ve got your comeback you’ve got your comeback
You cut the tape won the victory lap
You’ve got your comeback you’ve got your comeback

You only come when you come on down
You were born wearing that crown
Pretty baby you can come you can come on down
I’ll know I’m yours when I’m wearing your fucking crown

You broke the record you’re first on the track
You’ve got your comeback you’ve got your comeback
You cut the tape won the victory lap
You’ve got your comeback you’ve got your comeback
I want my comeback
Track Name: River Mae
River Mae

It was down in the tavern young sage River Mae
First laid swollen green eyes ‘pon the cowboys display
‘neath a worn withered hat he played cards like a cheat
Drank liquor like water and hustled the creeps
It wasn’t the prowess that stole river’s heart
But his candor and calluses sung from his heart
As he dived for his pistol and shot up the bar
He sang melodies born of the sun moon and stars
He sang river

He locked on her eyes as he strode from the bar
She followed on horse back and watched from afar
He turned and he faced her and watched how she moved
It was then he decided he’d nothing too loose
He touched her red check told her not to speak
Their bodies would teach them what being close means
Though she longed for him she nare felt a thing
Less he’d open his soul and he’d let the sound sing
He’d say river

Though it caused her misfortune river waited in vain
For the cowboy to offer his sound to poor Mae
Though he ebbed and he flowed he would share just a sip
Just enough for to taste all she wanted to give
The cowboy weren’t mean his heart was just broke
And he thought he could mend it by blocking his throat
But voices are voices whether heard they’re the same
You keep singing the same song lest you give it away
It goes river

River Mae stood by the edge of the lake
Her hands ‘neath the water ripples moved in her lake
She opened her mouth barely knew how to speak
As the tears trickled down melting into the deep
From a distance the cowboy heard the sound of his muse
As she opened her heart to the beckoning blues
She sang as she waded beyond her loves reach
As he ran to the music he knew he could speak
She sang river






The cowboy he stood by the edge of the water
Her music was still in his soul ever after
River Mae floated her body caressed
By the love of the water the sound of his breath
As he pulled River Mae from the hold of her grave
He knew nothing was worth all the silence he’d made
And he swore at that moment he’d sing from his soul
The sound of his river may god bless her soul

He sang River Mae
River stay
River flow
