Circular Hour (bass, Joe Chamberlin)

We play just to lose
Why would we ever want to win at this game?
We play when we choose
Why whatever we do
Everything just gets used along the way?

People look for peace in the bottom of a bottle
Then they throw their peace on the side of the road
The blood of the earth is burning
Turning seasons, burning coal

How many days, how many hours have we been doing circular things with
 circular patterns?
How many days, how many hours have we been in circular motion with
 circular manners?
How many days, how many hours have we been, how many days, how many
 hours have we been doing nothing at all? Doing nothing at all?

It's unfashionable to be conscious
Of the waste in haste to dominate
Lost in a television wasteland
Lost attention lost in fate

[chorus]

We got caught up in the bubble
Unstoppable un-pop-able in a trance
Nine billion hands reached up to the sky
Reach for money, reach for lies

[chorus]

That Way (bass, Joe Chamberlin)

She sits under the trees
Tries to look unconcerned
Striking a casual posture
Just to look unperturbed
But all she wants to be is somebody that everybody can adore
But she is too scared to do anything more

And she want to know, oh she wants to know
She wants to know what they're thinking about
When they look at her that way, that way

All the kids think he's weird
Cause he plays all alone
Making his own little world
From the sticks and from the stones
But all he wants to be is somebody that everytobdy can adore
But he is too scared to do anything more

He wants to know, oh he wants to know
He wants to know what they're thinking about
When they look at him that way, that way

Singin' oh, oh oh oh....

She gets up from her seat
Keeps her eyes to the ground
Tries to avoid all eye contact
As she sits beside him there without a sound
Him in his world and her in her own
Two worlds together but each so very all alone

And they want to know, oh they want to know
They want to know what they're thinking about
When they look at them that way, that way

Singin' oh, oh oh oh....

'Cause sometimes I think our souls are on too tight, oh
Like a dress that just doesn't fit quite right, oh...
And I know that you're just trying to help
But sometimes everybody just helps themselves
And I think we really need to know
I want to know, I want to know, I want to know
Oh I want to know what you're thinking about when you look at me
Oh I want to know, I want to know, want to know
Oh I want to know what you're thinking about
When you look at me that way, that way

Still

I remember now how it used to be
Memories like rain clouds misty and grey
Took a picture hid it in my head
Trying to remember but I bled instead....

All it is and all it was is still
Wrapped in memories divided
Just to be retrieved and killed off
I remember now, I remember how
Took the chains of time and they slipped away
Oh, slip away....

Can't dwell on the distant past
In the present momemnt you are still at last
You took a picture, hid it in your head
Trying to remember but you bled instead....

All it is and all it was is still
Wrapped in memory divided
Just to be retrieved and killed off
I remember now, I remember how
Took the chains of time and they slipped away
Oh, slip away....

--
Aurora

Let me weave a melody from your life
Let me take it off you like
A layer of the thinnest cloth from your mind
So that I can weave a melody from your life....

It would start off soft and sweet
Then crescendo to a louder beat
As you take your life in your hands the stanzas would repeat

When you let me weave a melody from your life
When you let me weave a melody from your life....

On the day when you fly away and find a life of your own
The stanzas would change and would take on a louder tone

When you let me weave a melody from your life
When you let me weave a melody from your life

--
Juniper Berry Air (bass, Joe Chamberlin)

This is not the way, this is not the way
I thought it would turn out, but it's fine
Dreams are only meant to try on for size

I remember summer's ending long ago
Lazy on a porch swing looking into the distance
To a crooked tree
I told myself to remember everything in that moment forever
Juniper berry air and all

Years later, on a mountain top waterfall
Looking down at my mortality
I found that memory is a lovely dream
I told myself to remember everything in this moment forever
Juniper berry air and all

All the way though disappointments
All the way though changing faces
I wouldn't change this for anything at all

--
Gaze

Say goodbye to holding on
Say goodbye to control
Say goodbye to anything
That doesn't bring your soul....

And if I look away
Doesn't mean that I don't want to see you
It's just that your gaze weighs
Heavily, heavily, heavily, heavenly
In front of my face

And I'm not gonna hold back in any way....

Say goodbye to what was once
A wall un-crumbling
Feet move in a dance
Stumbling and laughing....

And if you look away
Doesn't mean that you don't want to see me
It's just that the day weighs
Heavily, heavily, heavily, heavenly
In shameless haste

And I'm not gonna hold back in any way....

Open my eyes
I will show
All my secrets
Just know
I'm not gonna hold

--
Truth in Silence (bass, Joe Chamberlin)

Come and sing to me
Oh come on
Cold infinity
Surrounds silence

I know, I know silence....

It's overwhelming, it's all I permit myself to say
It's overwhelming to know the truth

Voices from the air
Oh come on sing to me
I'm just a mirror
You're just a figure
That stands behind silence, silence

I know, I know silence....

It's overwhelming, it's all I permit myself to say
It's overwhelming to know the truth

Oh, la la....

It's overwhelming, it's all I permit myself to say....

--
Jesters Jest

Couldn't stop it if you wanted to
They will catch you by surprise
They will make you meet each demand
When you feel like you're doing well
They will cut you down so far
They will make you feel your heart sink beneath sand

Faded faces fail you at every turn
Broken down by their own sense of failure
They will drink your sadness and bathe in your tears
The foolish never fall alone, never fall alone....

Dah....

Couldn't leave if you wanted to
They will take you in the end
They will make you eat from the palm of their hands
With your back to the wall you blink
And you wave the white flag
But you know they have got nothing on you

Faded faces fail you at every turn
Broken down by their own sense of failure
They will drink your sadness and bathe in your tears
The foolish never fall alone, never fall alone....

Woudn't you like, like to get even?
Wouldn't you like to make them pay?
Oh wouldn't you like, like to be simple
Just a trifle violent?
Oh, wouldn't you like, like to become them
Just to see what it's like not to fall alone
Not to fall alone...?

--
Temporarily Blind

I don't know what it is that makes this so fragile
But oh how it makes me tired
The worried look that I get from the corner of your eyes
Reminds me that I'm only temporarily blind

I don't know what it is that makes me so baffled
But oh how it takes my time
Once I thought that I was made to be lonely
But only just ....

Temporary, it's temporary in time
Temporary, it's temporary in time

I don't know what it is that makes this so tragic
But oh what a poor design
The ways of the world seem impossibly curled
And so slow in unwinding

Oh I don't know what it is that makes me care so much
But oh how it fills my mind
Is so hard to see you suffering
So I just sit here wondering
Oh is temporary the way to go?

Is it just temporary
Is it just temporary in time
In time, is it temporary, temporary in time, time...?

--
Separated

Her methods aren't always easy
She's taking time to separate the right
From the wrongs that she has done
Her methods are inconceivable
She's taking time to find a way
To see through the haze

But curse you pretty girl
You don't know what you're doing here
You sell yourself for nothing
But the worst of everything
And if you go back to him
You'll sell yourself short again
He only takes a second to react....

Sometimes the more that you take
The more you shouldn't have taken
Off at the end of the line
You're separated
And the more that you give
The more you shouldn't have given
Up at the end of the line
You're separated

Oh, you separated, yourself, you separated
Somebody else, you separated, yourself
You separated

She reaches out her hands
Can't see her fingers but she knows that he is close
She packs her bags in the still silence of a room she's come to know
But not a home

Then this silly girl
Pauses at the windowsill
As the shadows melt into shapes
And morning tells her
To move her feet
Before events repeat
He only takes a second to react....

Sometimes the more that you take
The more you shouldn't have taken
Off at the end of the line
You're separated
And the more that you give
The more you shouldn't have given
Up at the end of the line
You're separated

Oh, you separated, yourself, you separated
Somebody else, you separated, yourself
You separated

Into the new of morning she's taking time to recreate a life
Where bruises can't confine

--
Any Minute

He curses out loud
Throws his cigarette on the ground
And walks away
He's got everybody on his back
Can't take a step without them keeping track
Of all he says

No walking in the sun today
Concrete simplicity
Cold surfaces are sterilized
Fluorescent lights glare in his eyes

It's all coming down any minute, any day, anyway
It's all coming down any minute, any day now....

Then he turns around
In his cubical he can be found
Each and every day
Canned and compartmentalized he never realized
That his life could be
Sold for a few dollars an hour
Paid just enough to never get better
Never get better
So he straps himself to gunpowder
Steps into the crowd just to make it louder
To make it louder

It's all coming down any minute, any day, anyway
It's all coming down any minute, any day now....

--
Just This Once

Today you tried to make me aware
That your heart lies in pieces at my toes
But somewhere I have a place for you
In my heart that's dusty
And wasn't really used

So tell me the truth maybe just this once
Did you do it just because you wanted to...?

It's too late for apologies
Your words are already dust in my ears
It seems like you are the winter chill
And all my windows
And doors are closed to you

So tell me the truth maybe just this once
Did you do it just because you wanted to...?

Flypaper

Flypaper

Kalamazoo, can't seem to get away from you
Whenever I leave, I always come back to you
'Cause I'm stuck, like a fly to flypaper, to you
Like a wheel to a bike, like my mouth to this mic
I'm sticking like glue to you....

So I moved here a few years ago
I didn't really mean to stay here, you know
But something about this place kind of sucks you in
Strips you down and gets under your skin
And before you know it, you belong
You don't really know how long you have been gone
Something in you wants to stay but another
Part would like to get away from --

Kalamazoo, can't seem to get away from you
Whenever I leave, I always come back to you
'Cause I'm stuck, like a fly to flypaper, to you
Like a wheel to a bike, like my mouth to this mic
I'm sticking like glue to you....

So I heard that there was a curse placed upon this land
The people who lived here before us
Didn't want the white man to have the upper hand
So they cursed the water with these words, that anybody who drank it
Would be sure to forever stick like a tack
And No matter where they went
They would always come back
They would always come back

To Kalamazoo, can't seem to get away from you
Whenever I leave, I always come back to you
'Cause I'm stuck, like a fly to flypaper, to you
Like a wheel to a bike, like my mouth to this mic
I'm sticking like glue to you....

Is It Just Me?

Is it just me? Could it be I woke up this morning
On the wrong side of the bed?
Or instead that I didn't get enough coffee
That I need a new philosophy
Like I need the time to find another way to convey
That the water that I'm swimming in is starting to get so thin
That maybe I can try to get out of the deep end
And walk on dry land....

Is it just me? Is it just my destination
The disintegration of all my futile visions of the future
That I'm trying to attain
That is driving me insane
Because I feel like I am reaching up too high?
Like I might as well just try to deny
That I am human, I am human...

Well I want you to know that I won't go without a fight
I want you to look into my eyes
And see into my buried soul because you know
All of my dreams and visions, trials and derisions
You know that I won't let you down...
And I will not walk away, no I won't walk away ....

Is it the key that I need to look in the mirror
To try to see clearer past illusions and then the glass
That holds me back will crack and fall to the floor
Before I can finally say that I am ready to be more?

Well I want you to know that I won't go without a fight
I want you to look into my eyes
And see into my buried soul because you know
All of my dreams and visions, trials and derisions
You know that I won't let you down...
And I will not walk away, no I won't walk away ....

Black Water

Water under the bridge is reflecting my face
Nah-nah-nah
Water under the bridge is reflecting my face
Nah-nah-nah
Today it's filled with worry and waste

Why, why do I go
So deep into my memories
That I forget to sleep?
Why do I go so far into black water
Away from where you are, into black water
Away from where you are?

Sometimes I put my past behind me, oh, oh, oh
Sometimes I put my past behind me, oh, oh, oh
Sometimes my past comes back to the surface to find me

Why, why do I go
So deep into my memories
That I forget to sleep?
Why do I go so far into black water
Away from where you are, into black water
Away from where you are?

Oooo, I fall in love every day
I fall in love every day, ooooh
Sometimes my love is fleeting
And sometimes it stays

Why, why do I go
So deep into my memories
That I forget to sleep?
Why do I go so far into black water
Away from where you are, into black water
Away from where you are?
Into black water away from where you are?

Circuitry

I think it's in the way I see
Or is it in my circuitry?
Oh no, I think I'm falling
Is it in the air I breathe
Or is it when you turn to leave?

Oh no, I think I'm falling
For you, but I don't know if you
Feel it too
It's like a knife
Is tearing through my heart
Where did I start to give
You that control
Oh....

So this is how it feels to fall
I want you now or not at all
Oh no, I think I'm falling
Somehow you've wrapped
Yourself around
Every note and every sound

Oh no, I think I'm falling
For you, but I don't know if you
Feel it too
It's like a knife
Is tearing through my heart
Where did I start to give
You that control
Oh....

Está na maniera que vejo
Está no meu circuito oh no,
acho que estou amando.
Está no ar em que respiro
Está no cair das folhas oh no,
acho que estou amando você
mas não sei se você senti
isso também.
E como uma faca que está
cortando meu coração.
Quando eu comecei a dar
a você esse controle.

In My Room

("I can can hear that")

Don't turn the light out
I don't want to be alone
In the dark with you
I don't want to be confused
Because every time I do
I find nothing but
Darkness in the room

Don't make me laugh like that
I don't want to be amused
In the park with you
I don't want to see the truth
Because every time I do
I find something that I
Can not refuse....

Because every time I do
I find something in the
Darkness of my room

Sky Highway

What's the matter
You've got something on your mind
That I can't find
The impression, the miles and miles unwind
Racing time
And from up here I can look down at the clouds
As we drive this sky highway over ground

Slow down, just for a minute or two
Slow down
You got something on your mind
That I can't find....

I've been searching for someone
Who can smile to light my way
Over mountains to the desert
Dry as wine, I fought against time
Then when you came to me I didn't
Realize that driving this sky highway
You would be the one to put the
Smile back in my eyes

Slow down, just for a minute or two
Slow down
You got something on your mind
That I can't find....

What is it that you see
That makes you smile like that?
What is it that you see in me
That makes you drive sky highway
Through the black desert
Through the stormy weather?

You got something on your mind that I can't find....

Spoonful of Sugar

I told the doctor that I wasn't feeling well
But the look in his eyes told a story only eyes can tell
They said, I don't want to hear it no more
Don't want no more sad tales
My problems are bigger than yours and I've got many more bills to pay
Would you go away go back to your home
Leave me alone so I can get back to my drinking
Not thinking of what is wrong with everybody else for awhile

Can I just write a prescription
Prescribe your addiction? Come on, open wide
Open your mouth and say "ahh" let's see that jaw
Spoonful of Sugar gonna make the medicine go down, down

I told a good friend that she really looked like hell
She said baby maybe I just need to sleep for a spell
Because I've been working third shift taking the shit
So much that I'm stepping in it and I don't want to live
This way no more

Can I just write a prescription
Prescribe your addiction? Come on, open wide
Open your mouth and say "ahh" let's see that jaw
Spoonful of Sugar gonna make the medicine go down

Because everybody's looking for their quick fix
They don't know exactly what it is that they miss
'Cause everybody's problem is somebody else's profit

Can I just write a prescription
Prescribe your addiction? Come on, open wide
Open your mouth and say "ahh" let's see that jaw
Spoonful of Sugar, spoonful of sugar
Gonna make the medicine go down, down

Second Skin

You're wearing that shirt that you wear like a second skin
Determination in your eyes
You're looking at me like I was a painting on the wall
But I don't want to hang on your nail anymore

The days get better and the days get worse
They all seem to flow together
Like chalk on the sidewalk after the rain
I don't want to be asleep watching everything pass me by
Please pinch me so I'll open my eyes, I'll open up my eyes....

You say that you feel like you are floating above yourself
A stranger in your own film
You say that you feel like you are floating above the road
And you know where it goes
But you don't know how you're going to get there....

The days get better and the days get worse
They all seem to flow together
Like chalk on the sidewalk after the rain
I don't want to be asleep watching everything pass me by
Please pinch me so I'll open my eyes, I'll open up my eyes....

You're wearing that shirt again
And I just want to take it off
So that I can see your skin
But I don't want to be primal
I don't want to be ruled by the flesh
I just want to know who you are

The days get better and the days get worse
They all seem to flow together
Like chalk on the sidewalk after the rain
I don't want to be asleep watching everything pass me by
Please pinch me so I'll open my eyes, I'll open up my eyes....

It's Gonna Rain

Hold on now don't you see
This is not the way it's supposed to be
You've got your worries in the back yard
Buried in a jar that
You keep hidden under a tree
Under a tree
You got your worries in the back yard
Buried in a jar that you keep hidden under a tree

Change comes easily, these four walls
Seem to get to me so drop what you're doing
And come outside, I think it's gonna storm tonight
Storm tonight
Just drop what you're doing and come outside
I think it's gonna storm tonight

You just have to hold on just a little longer
I think it's gonna rain down
Can you hear the thunder?
It's gonna rain, it's gonna rain down
It's gonna rain and wash
Everything clean, clean again

Don't you worry so much
There is always gonna be enough
It's when you cling to things so tight
That they slip right through your hands
Through your hands
It's when you cling to things so tight that they slip
Right through your hands

The rain will make it simple
As it runs down our backs
We do not have to worry
No need to go so fast
It's not the ending but
Beginnings that we miss
When we do not take the time
To look in another's eyes
We do not take the time
To look in another's eyes

You just have to hold on just a little longer
I think it's gonna rain down
Can you hear the thunder?
It's gonna rain, it's gonna rain down
It's gonna rain and wash
Everything clean, clean again

Rain, rain down....
Wash everything clean again

Here We Are

Hey, wear whatever you've got on
Don't be afraid to come out and move along
It's all brand new, like the day
We were born, with the sky, here we are

Hey, you're meant to be here all along
No mistakes, just lessons written in the song
It's all brand new, like the day
We were born, in the star, here we are

Hey, wear whatever you've got on
Don't be afraid to come out and move along
It's all brand new, like the day
We were born, in the sun, we are....

So Many Places

Well I look through the road ahead
I'm just trying to find someplace to lay my head
And I never left so many good friends behind
Well I don't know just what I'll find
But I know I'll be back again
Yeah, I've got a funny feeling
But I don't know when

Ahh, so many places
Ahh, so many faces....

And it seems a little insane
All of the joy and all of the pain
You can't know up if you've never been down
Well I know there's so much to be found
So if you ever feel alone
Just find two quarters
Pick up the phone

Ahh, so many places
Ahh, so many faces....

Dawn Song

Let's start again in the morning
As soon as the fog clears from my eyes
Let's start again in the morning
Because we are new when the light touches skies

The girl I was yesterday has gone away
Everyday we start again
So don't you hang on to the one I was before
Every day, we begin

Let's start again in the morning
And stop relying on the past
Let's start again in the morning
'Cause then we can be in the moment at last

The girl I was yesterday has gone away
Everyday we start again
So don't you hang on to the one I was before
Every day, we begin

Oh, don't remember me
'Cause I change with the breeze
And now is the time we can be
New in the light of the day

Lah-dah-dah....

The girl I was yesterday has gone away
Everyday we start again
So don't you hang on to the one I was before
Every day, we begin....

Why, why do I go
So deep into my memories

Sometimes I put my past behind me, oh, oh, oh

Why do I go so far into black water
Away from where you are, into black water
Away from where you are?

Oooo, I fall in love every day
I fall in love every day, ooooh
Sometimes my love is fleeting
And sometimes it stays

Why, why do I go
So deep into my memories
That I forget to sleep?
Why do I go so far into black water
Away from where you are, into black water
Away from where you are?
Into black water away from where you are?

Voodoo Child / Where's That Change?

Well, I stand right next to a mountain
I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I stand right next to a mountain
Chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise just a little sand
Beause I'm a voodoo child, voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child

I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to you one of these days
I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to you one of these days
Oh, yeah, and if we don't meet again in this world
Then I'll see you in the next one
So don't be late, don't be late
'Cause I'm a voodoo child, voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child
I'm a voodoo child

....

Hey now where's that change....
Things don't have to stay the same....

Sing, Sing, Sing Along

Better put on your hat today before you go outside
Because the scenery is melted and the greenery is gone

Holy water, is it gonna save you from yourself...?
??? all in disarray
And we try just so hard to run away
When we just need to get together and say...

Better walk on the sidewalk metal, you gonna get burned
Because the wind, you see, is looking kind of strangely ???
I'm a little concerned

Holy water, is it gonna save you from yourself...?
??? all in disarray
And we try just so hard to run away
When we just need to get together and say...

Sing, sing, sing, sing....

??? all in disarray
And we try just so hard to run away
When we just need to get together and say...

Be Right Here

It's amazing where (when?) you sit in silence with it
It's like tuning guitar string

All you gotta do is be, be right here....

Take a deep breath
Try to relax
Take a deep breath
Now all is love

You will find what you're looking for
When you open up your own door
Let your mind go and be free

All you gotta do is be, be right here....

Take a deep breath
Try to relax
Take a deep breath
Now all is love

Be right here....

Take a deep breath....
Try to relax
Take a deep breath
Now all is love

The Time

You're looking tired again, but you said that, said that you don't
You're staying up late thinking when you said that, said that you won't
Go chasing time, try to find the answer

'Cause there's no time....

You look up at the sky and you say that, say that it's good
Changes everything like you said that, said that it would
Wake up from our sleep so we can be the answer

'Cause it's the time....
To think, to think about it

So Many Places

Well I look through the road ahead
I'm just trying to find someplace to lay my head
And I never left so many good friends behind
Well I don't know just what I'll find
But I know I'll be back again
Yeah, I've got a funny feeling
But I don't know when

Ahh, so many places
Ahh, so many faces....

And it seems a little insane
All of the joy and all of the pain
You can't know up if you've never been down
Well I know there's so much to be found
So if you ever feel alone
Just find two quarters
Pick up the phone

Ahh, so many places
Ahh, so many faces....

Dawn Song

Let's start again in the morning
As soon as the fog clears from my eyes
Let's start again in the morning
Because we are new when the light touches skies

The girl I was yesterday has gone away
Everyday we start again
So don't you hang on to the one I was before
Every day, we begin

Let's start again in the morning
And stop relying on the past
Let's start again in the morning
'Cause then we can be in the moment at last

The girl I was yesterday has gone away
Everyday we start again
So don't you hang on to the one I was before
Every day, we begin

Oh, don't remember me
'Cause I change with the breeze
And now is the time we can be
New in the light of the day

Lah-dah-dah....

The girl I was yesterday has gone away
Everyday we start again
So don't you hang on to the one I was before
Every day, we begin....

Bigger On The Inside

It's kind of like the feeling before a thunder storm
Or the heat of the fire when you're keeping warm
As the dawn breaks on a new sunrise
Just feeling that feeling of feeling alive....

'Cause inside, oh inside....
We're bigger on the inside....

Spent some time out in the cold
As the days went by I wanted to know, wanted to know
Could this be my only chance
Somehow I know this won't be the last, be the last

'Cause inside, oh inside....
We're bigger on the inside....

On The Road To Baton Rouge

I met a lady there named Eileen
She didn't quite understand what I had seen
??? thought me out of my mind
For laying my life down on the line
You'll be gone way too soon she said
Well I'd rather be gone than lose my head
Just can't help wanting to know the truth
Are we really here just passing through

On the road, the road to Baton Rouge
Remember when I, when I heard the news
And it, it reminded me of you
On the road, the road to Baton Rouge....

It'd been ten years, maybe even more
Since I had set foot through her door
I didn't even know quite what to expect
Didn't want to seem an emotional wreck
Well it seemed she hadn't aged a day
Me, I couldn't even think of a single thing to say
She said, come in, sit down, warm yourself by the fire
And tell me where you've been, been all this while

On the road, the road to Baton Rouge
Remember when I, when I heard the news
And it, it reminded me of you
On the road, the road to Baton Rouge....

Industry Park

It's the quiet after the storm has finally blown over
And I sit in quiet contemplation, elation and
The air feels soft like clover
And the swallows against my skin
And I wonder, oh, wouldn't it be easy
If we could only walk away from our problems, and yesterday....
Wouldn't it be fine if we could only run from our devils
So far away, hey
Wouldn't it be cool if we could only take it to
Make it better tomorrow....
Wouldn't it be nice if we only had to think twice
And everything, everything, everything would turn out right

Now I walk along the streets of the city
And my thoughts are being clouded
By the multitude of souls moving all around me
With their ignorance and their innocence
And the people wonder, the people wonder
Oh, wouldn't it be easy
If we could only walk away from our problems, and yesterday....
Wouldn't it be fine if we could only run from our devils
So far away, hey
Wouldn't it be cool if we could only take it to
Make it better tomorrow....
Wouldn't it be nice if we only had to think twice
And everything, everything, everything would turn out right....

Here We Are

Hey, wear whatever you've got on
Don't be afraid to come out and move along
It's all brand new, like the day
We were born, with the sky, here we are

Hey, you're meant to be here all along
No mistakes, just lessons written in the song
It's all brand new, like the day
We were born, in the star, here we are

Hey, wear whatever you've got on
Don't be afraid to come out and move along
It's all brand new, like the day
We were born, in the sun, we are....

Down By The River

Hey, hey, laughing child, stand up and breathe
Hey, hey, laughing child, well is that all you need?
I said get down, down by the river....

Hey, hey, old man, stand up and breathe
Hey, hey, old man, well is that all you need?
I said get down, down by the river....

Hey, hey, pretty girl, stand up and breathe
Hey, hey, pretty girl, well is that all you need?
I said get down, down by the river....

(Definitely!)

I Don't Want to Lie to You

"Good morning" should mean "good morning"
Not the something to say before you drag yourself into the day
"Good morning" should mean "good morning"
And not "I'd rather be back in bed"

"Have a good day" should mean that way
If you don't then you'll only disobey what I asked you to do
"How do you do?" should mean "I care about you"
Not a passing phrase to move you along

Why can't we be honest?
Why can't we be true?
When life isn't cheery
I don't want to lie to you
Why can't we be honest?
Why can't we be true?
'Cause I don't want to lie to you

"See you soon" should mean before the moon
Is the same as today, "I'll see you again
We'll go have some fun"
"Have some fun" should mean we go out to run
Just to be alive, playing outside
And not poisoning ourselves

"How do you do?" should mean "I care about you"
Not a passing phrase to move you along

Why can't we be honest?
Why can't we be true?
When life isn't cheery
I don't want to lie to you
Why can't we be honest?
Why can't we be true?
'Cause I don't want to lie to you....

"Good morning" should mean "good morning"
And not "I'd rather be back in bed"

Platform One

Can't you see the sun is setting
Sun is setting over the hill
And tomorrow I'll be getting
I'll be getting on a train

And if you go, I will be waiting
I will be waiting to take you along
And if you go, I will be waiting
I will be waiting on the platform at one

Can't you see the dawn is coming
Dawn is coming in the East
And of course I am rushing
To pack everything to leave

And if you go, I will be waiting
I will be waiting to take you along
And if you go, I will be waiting
I will be waiting on the platform at one

Can't you see that I am waiting
I am waiting for a train
And I'm looking around the corner
To see if your car's out there in the rain
'Cause if it's not, I will be leaving
I will be leaving in a matter of moments

And if you go, I will be leaving
I will be leaving this platform at one

Oh it's happened once or twice
That we couldn't get it right
I hate to say
But what difference does it make
In another place or time
Far away, far away

Can't you see that I have been gone
So long, I'm never coming back
