No End

Driving Along, sun brushing dusk
The warm wind is licking my hands
I can hear the moon laughing with me again
Stars peg the sky alight, sparkling with no end
And the world is talking, I am just listening

Do do do do, do do, do da don dee
Do do do do, do do

Simple like a strangers smile saying hello
I can feel the kiss of God
on the tip of my nose
Strange it was there all along, yet i missed it all this time
Maybe because I'd been searching only with my eyes

Chorus

Trying to use words that just don't work anymore
Pools of adjectives, synonyms
Throwing out occasional metaphor
Into the sky hoping they'll light fire so you can all see
An experience so individual it lives in the rhythmns of my mysteries
Eyes blazed in illumined simplicity
Life plays out in total syncronicity
Mind rolls in brilliant originality
And everything once outside
Now in complete and total unity

Chorus

All alone I was walking the waters edge
And then appear a thousand colors, lighting up my head
And the sky was so bright, all I could see was life
I could touch the whole universe with my eyes

Chorus

--
Beach Song

Beach, tide
Clear sky
Shooting star
Back to the water
I reach
Beyond my scars
Deep into my gutter
Dark light
Silence
Life gathers beneath the dock
My eyes swell with love felt
Time stops
Light breeze, cradles me
Idleness, my lover
My heart beats slowly
Breath leads me deeper
The waves speak gently whispers of the goddess
My eyes swell with love felt
Time Stops

--
No Promises

All those words I said
I thought they were true for you too
And all those words I said
I thought that they would carry us to the end
And I look at your face and I wonder why, why?
Is this the night for me to be, for you to stay?

Misery's not my friend
I ain't going back
Misery's not my friend
I ain't going back

Time, it scares into all those I've hurt before
I say this will be different but I don't know, no promises
And I look at your reflection
And I wonder what it is that calls me
And I'm tired, and low, and feeling so broken
I'm afraid that I know you're just like him

Chorus

I ain't going back (repeat)

--
Undone

I keep on trying to pull you where we meet
But all this resistance is taking away my energy
And if you wanted to see me
There would be nothing to hold you back from me

You're more trouble than your worth
You're more trouble than your worth

I find it funny how things keep coming up
But with every little thing that comes up
My heart becomes more undone
Maybe knowing me just brings up way too much
And I don't wanna see you scramble at the end
Trying to sustain that last flame of love

Chorus

I stand at the brink of finding out why
Thinking about this just makes me wanna cry
Is this what I expect from those who take my time
My heart is breaking I can feel it inside

But I know, I know

Chorus

--
Obsession

You were my obsession
The color of my walls
The dreams in my head
My water falls
The only sound I could hear
Was the sound of your voice
The words in my head were only yours

Days got darker I couldn't get enough
The crawl of obsession took over my choice
We didn't notice we were falling deep
Into each other I was loosing me

Riddle me did this moment
Look at what love can do
Just then I realized it wasn't love
Holding me to you

I was falling down
A fast moving landslide
Where your touch was the ocean
And your eyes, the sky

Wasn't I warned, wasn't I told?
By other women who'd been there before
Didn't notice the signs, didn't read between the lines
Or take the time to remember my life

Chorus with

Love is something greater
Love it sets you free
It don't leave you tied
To the response you receive

--
The Argument

No, I don't have anything to say
That doesn't seem to stop your pushing your ideas on me
And I have no desire to be an accomplice to your reality
Please get those emotional knives the hell away from me

Why do you have the need to ask me the same thing twice?
Do you think a new answer will appear
and automatically it will suffice?
And please stop these pressure tactics you are using on me
What's the point of conversation anyway,
if you just want to agree?

How ‘bout asking me a question sparked by curiosity?
Instead of tying sentences around my neck
and then trying to lead
Me around this merry-go-round that you call your sanity
I resign, defy your paradigm, leave this argument untouched,
Peacefully, peacefully, peacefully, peacefully

--
Teardrops

I don't know why you worry,
that things won't work out, they always do
And what is perfection anyway?
You're just waiting for chaos to ensue
And if you want to go somewhere, go there
I don't want to change you
And if you feel the same way get over here
And show me you do

Teardrops
And love stops
Things are never the same
Teardrops
And love song
I don't where we went wrong
I know love grows when you feed it
And I know my love is still here

When I said I love you
You know I meant it real love doesn't disappear
And I'll give it space to change because I know it will
But I'll be here anyway
Don't fear an open heart, don't hold too tight
You'll be alright
Tonight ain't going so smooth
You keep changing the rules and backing out again

Chorus

Is there a separate truth you need to share with me?
Honey, I'm listening
Is it fear that pulls your heart in another direction?
Trouble sits at everyone's doorstep
Either let him in, or send him away
Trouble don't scare me much
I've seen him walking around on darker days

Chorus 2x

When We Walk

I am so lucky
For knowing one like you
One so honest
To whom I have nothing to prove
You offer great freedom
I could say anything to you
Your insight's dynamic
Putting ease to my panic

When we walk, it's more like we fly
When we roam, we roam high on life
When you teach me, I understand
If you need to reach out just take my hand, my friend

I dare not label what you mean to me
It's not that simple
I don't think it ever will be
We meet in a field so beautiful and so complete
That I want for not, cause I have everything I need

Chorus

And when you leave here I hope there is no regret
Your impact on my life is not one I'd soon forget
I have no expectations for when we'll meet again
You know I love you?
Know I love you

Chorus

--
Love Song

I know love like I know, the taste of your lips
And I know lust like I know, the weight of your hips
And I know touch like I know, nights spent
in breathless caress
And I know you like I know, the rhythm of your breath

And as the sun rises in your eyes
I pull you down once more
Chance alone could not dethrone
our bodies in rhythmic embrace
Come to me thru my dreams
the night it whispers your name
And peel me back, reveal my core,
dip the tips into my soul

Repeat first verse

The taste of your lips
The weight of your hips
Nights in your caress
The rhythm of our breath

3

I was sitting in my head and I saw 3
I was walking with my friends and I saw 3
Who, What, How could this be?
Atomic mass, the Unconscious, the Trinity

O
You didn't tell me
O, O, O
You didn't tell me

One piece of time split into 3
Oh, the mind divides misting up the mystery
Thoughts they travel at quantum speed
Life's affliction, the eternal question
Who must I be?

Chorus

You, you, you, you, you, yaaaow
(8x)

Deep Sea Dive

I was all scared
Thought that maybe what we shared
Had just dried, laid out to die

And I began to doubt
Thought that maybe a drought had come by
And then you came inside

Into that cavernous abyss of a space beyond time
The philosopher's mind
And there we shared a beauty
That always comes so easy cause you're so kind

And there we.

Deep sea dive
Exploring the lesser known part of our lives
And everything we find we share
And when we're all done
We let go and float up for air

Here was are in the sky
I'm pointing at the sun
As the stars pass us by

There we go walking in the rain
Reminding each other that
It will wash away the pain

Now everything I say to you
Is always wrapped inside the truth
Cause, there's no place to hide
And everything you say to me
Lays a spark underneath
And burns away the lies
And we go spinning and swirling
Then buzzing and whirring
Cause it just don't stop

And then we.

Chorus
Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain down on me
(3x)

The Stink

When we spoke something broke
Now there's nothing I can do
I tried to mend it but
Every attempt was misconstrued
It's a maze, nasty phase, something we're going thru

It thought just let it die
Maybe then it will just change
But many days passed us by and we just ricocheted
Into hate, then to blame, it's so inflamed

All you see is the stink, unclean obscene the nasty
The don't ever wanna hear me or work it out
All I want to see is us moving towards something both of us believe in
A little understanding, some healing

Now I see where I strayed when I confronted you
A righteous turn of phrase that just insulted you
Arrogance, my defense, I forgot my common sense
I think it's better if I just went away
Instead of trying to fix something only meant to break
Then retrace our mistakes
I just want to escape

Chorus

We make perfect friction
This our strange infliction
Me with my convictions
Complete contradictions
Living like constriction
Is a blessed affliction
Trapped in our addictions
Yeah, we love addictions

Chorus x 2

Solace

Town name Georgia, Athens
Shot a man running down the street naked
They said he had a weapon
But didn't find one on his body dead

Ain't no solace for the family
Ain't no solace for the family
Ain't no solace for the family
Ain't no solace for the family

Town name New York, New York
Man reaching in his pocket
Gets shot 41 times
Didn't find a weapon on the body this time

Chorus

I just wanna trust the ones that are here to protect me
I run because of who you shot down don't want you to get me
(4 x)

LAPD killed a friend of mine in '91
And you can best believe that they didn't find a gun
They beat him like a dog in the middle of the street
About 4 month before they did it to Rodney King
No videotape, no pity or breaks
Except two clubs that broke when they was hittin' his legs
So what do you do but don your best suit
Pay a lawyer to file a wrongful death suit
He was looking out when I didn't know the ropes
30 years old, didn't act like older folks
Then six cops beat him till he didn't show a pulse
But he was coked up so they called it an overdose
Didn't try to fight but the pigs all lied
The block cried my dog died while hogtied
There ain't no justice now there's just my mans memory
15 years
Ain't no solace for the family

Town name Washington, Seattle
Man running with a knife
They didn't ask a question
They just shot and took another half life

Chorus

History

It's time for your life, your life to begin
Life

You break me
Then you call me lazy
You hate me
And fear me at the same time
You push me
And call it a crime when I push back
You throw me in a corner
And only respond when I attack

It is time, time, time to move beyond these roles
That limit our choice
Life, life, life is not to be relived like history

You put one hand out symbolizing peace
But have covered the whole palm in disease
You say pray, pray, pray for this country's glory
Proving the devil doesn pray as written in His Story

(chorus x 3)

Time, time, time
It's time for your life
Life, life, life
Your life now, you're life
We're not going to live like
His Story

Trap Doors

Just because it seems to be the right way
Just because it seems to be the wrong way
Doesn't have to mean it's the way we all go
We're building too much law on top of trap doors

I don't worry because worry you make me feel old
I don't regret because regret it makes me feel old
Not like youth is only way to be free
And old is not age but stagnate mind ways

I don't hate because hate you bring me down
I don't fear because fear you bring me down
Not like there is anything wrong with being down
But I'd rather stand tall than with my head to the ground

Chorus

I'm guilty just because
I'm guilty just because
I'm guilty just because
I'm guilty just because

I'd don't run because running it gets me nowhere
I don't shut down because, oh no, it gets me nowhere
It's not like I have a particular place to go
But I'd rather move high than stay hanging on down low

I don't hate because hate no you bring me down
I don't fear because fear no you bring me so down
Not like there is anything wrong with being down
But I'd rather stand tall than with my head to the ground

Chorus

Labyrinth

I was born into the labyrinth of my father's lost identity
I was raised in a place where acceptance was a dream
I scavenged for a source
To define my own identity
I would call myself labels they could understand easily
But what I am you cannot understand
My roots are deep and more vast than the word black
And my color is something you cannot behold
In your high yellow, wanna be white, oreo
I repelled both sides, a community denied
I walked suburban exile amongst stare in store isles
I got by in schools where ignorance is more prevalent
I was judged as less intelligent because on my skin pigment
Then they looked into my eyes to check for the conversion
They thought my knowledge wold learn them out of their bigotry
And then I entered a world where they will really tell you what they think
Because with a colored friend you're somehow automatically exempt
From dealing with the racism that created the gated community
An illusion of exclusivity to keep out the undesirables
Funny to see who falls behind those iron walls
To become the cultural ambassador for every race in this world
"Hey, you speak so well"
Well what did you expect?
My parents were treated like shit because they had accents
"Hey, what's your nationality?"
I'm American you see
But you just wanna know what makes me dark in a way that's PC
So my lessons come everyday because of the color of my skin
And I will not cut myself into pieces so you can have boxes to put me in
So when I cringe or make a face when you ask me what I am
Here's a taste of one world that I live in.

Let's Run

I met you like I'd meet anyone
We just started talking felt an instant connection
Love bloomed from our wild conversations
I could see in you the next inspiration

I love mistakes
I know you love the chase
So let's run

And, I know you like I know anyone
You're just a mirror, you cast my reflection
And that felt fake when you had no opinions
And you just looked to me to make all your decisions

I love mistakes
I know you love the chase
So let's run

In the fury of that running
Reality started to flood in
And I could see the vacancy in your eyes
And the trouble with your kind
Is you never learn to shine
Instead you'd rather just
Hijack another girl's ride

I left you like I'd leave anyone
When I felt drained I just stop calling
And you filled with anger and devastation
Meanwhile I could see we were just an illusion

I love mistakes
I know you love the chase
So let's run

--
Obsession

You were my obsession
The color of my walls
The dreams in my head
My waterfalls
The only sound I could hear
Was the sound of your voice
The words in my heart were only yours

Days got darker I couldn't get enough
The crawl of obsession took over my choice
We didn't notice we were falling deep
Into each other I was losing me

Riddle me did this moment
Look what love can do
Just then I realized it wasn't love
Holding me to you

I was falling down
A fast moving landslide
Where your touch was the ocean
And your eyes the sky

Wasn't I warned wasn't I told
By other women who'd been there before
Didn't notice the signs
Didn't read between the lines
Or take time to remember my life

Chorus

Love is something greater
Love it sets you free
It don't leave you tied
To the response you receive

I.W.C.

My first gateway drug into the dawn was sugar
Around 9 months my mouth craved this high for a cookie
Body highs we disquise how much we love the buzz
It keeps us alive not till the stakes are wrecking our lives
Do we try to make it illegal or
Unless Dupont or some drug company
Lobbies to make it free or unfree
Do we think it's morally moving towards justice?
Trust us, we manufacture safety
Trust us, we manufacture security
Then we appointed a coke head to the Head of State
Lines on the presidential plate
He's now a junkie for the money
Digging holes in the soil of our sacred lands
And planting guns in the hands of the military
But, I won't complain
You won't complain
Steeped in the guilt that becomes this apathy
You see I can't complain
I believe the illusion I have everything I need
The world is the victim
I am luckiest to be born American
I only have the blood of millions on the edges of my designer sleeves
Oh yes I'm happy happy as can be
My life is filled with stuff
Overfed gluttonously
In a daze, yes, a haze it covers all my mind
And I can't remember the last time I ruled my time
Open thought that requires thinking
And education is fueled by thoughtless repetition
Can I question this one dimensional reality?
Where media equal lies
And money rules my time
Love = Codependence
Hate is my patriotic sentence
I am free to live my life by the expectations you have
This life equation sucks you do the math
But, I won't complain
You won't complain
I will complain, will you complain?
We can make this change
I will complain, will you complain?
We can make this change
(repeat)

So Much of Me

Living and thinking in a world like this
Overwhelms me to the point of paralysis
Maybe this was their plan all along
To make me feel weak while thinking I'm strong

Economic ideals spiraling out globably
Amongst people who don't even use money
Keeping all the markets open and free
So we can oppress everyone equally

Freedom is a concept sold for a fee
Dispensed to those only with the most money
And even those people only buy it temporarily
Cause with a shift in the wind they could all lose their levy

So much of me
Knows not to fear
But I can feel that ceiling dropping
So much of me
Knows not to fear
But I keep wondering who's gonna stop them

Maybe you, maybe me

All this shock television has taught us not to feel
We're living in the world of the virtually real
Less participants and more spectators
Who think the food grows on grocery store counters

The value of everything exists in our heads
A shift in the world is as easy as a shift in consciousness
Yet all of us are waiting for somebody else
To do the work we must do ourselves

The quicker we stand
They quicker they fall
Quick before they put
All the open minds in the prison cells
Question for a moment that's all
Decide on your own
Don't fall beneath the spell

Chorus

Maybe you, maybe me
Maybe you, maybe me

Let Me In

I don't know why
I can't let you in
And time stalked us
Patience growing thin
You are the chemical
I want under my skin
And I stuck you in my heart, waited
No reaction

You are the poison
The reason i'm who I am
I can't absorb you
This mirror won't let me in

I filled my mouth with whatever you put in my cup
And I started to drown but this daydream pulled me out
And I froze my finger in the shape of a trigger
But I can't muscle out 6 pounds of pressure

You are the poison
The reason i'm who I am
I can't absorb you
This mirror won't let me in

I can't wait for you,
I can't wait for you,
I can't wait for you,
I can't wait for you.

--
Instead

What do you want from me?
Some kind of confession
There's nothing to be sorry about
Its normal to feel some doubts

What do want from us?
A wedding procession
We're figuring out who we are
We're hearts made up of scars

Empty your head
Fill it with
What's happening instead
Of drowning us both
In what you had hoped
This would be

What do want from this?
Complete fulfillment
I'm a heart and a pair of hands
With a weakness for you
What do you want me to say
Write it down for me
My tongue keeps falling over itself
Trying to please

Empty your head
Fill it with
What's happening instead
Of drowning us both
In what you had hoped
This would be

la la la la la la, la la la, la la
la la la la la la, la la la, la la

Empty your head
Fill it with
What's happening instead
Of drowning us both
In what you had hoped
This would be

Circus Star

If its a rainbow doesn't mean that you're gonna save the world
If it is small round an purple don't just eat it and dissolve your will

I find myself angry for no reason
I live for you, you live for yourself
Oh Oh Ohhh Oh

If its alone, doesn't mean it's searching for something else
If it is moving fast, doesn't mean it's in a rush or running away

I find myself happy for no reason
I live for love, you live for the end
Oh Oh Ohhh Oh

Why do we continue as we are
Me your ballyhoo, you the circus star
If only cause we're waiting for something else
We'll i'm done waiting, i'm done waiting


If she says nothing, doesn't mean she has nothing to say
If she just nods her head, doesn't mean everything is ok

I find myself questioning everything
I live for nothing and you do the same
Oh Oh Ohhh Oh

Why do we continue as we are
Me your ballyhoo, you the circus star
If only cause we're waiting for something else
We'll i'm done waiting, i'm done waiting

Why do we continue as we are
Me your ballyhoo, you the circus star
If only cause we're waiting for something else
We'll i'm done waiting, i'm done waiting…for your love

Escape

I saw you start to feed
Your mouth went long then deep
Your eyes held this stare
You went far away
Don't ever get in the way of a hunter and the prey
He's a killer till he's had his taste

And I saw its heart slow down
As it laid their on the ground
Moving closer and closer to paradise
And it gave up on the fight
Stared down the valley of light
And chose the other route
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape

And you don't know when you're gonna have to leave
But you better be ready, you better be ready
its what you gave and what you did and how you lived
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape

I saw its heart slow down
As it laid their on the ground
Moving closer and closer to paradise
And it gave up on the fight,
Stared down the valley of light
And chose the other route
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape

And you know that its never going to end

Lady Bug

A quiet child, it's like i'm the only one
Troubled and wild, with a razor for a tongue
What can you'd do when everything just sticks like super glue
Can't move to run

Focus quick to survive
watch your steps, watch the time
You know how to make things bleed

Invisible, I became like everyone
Perfectly still, till its safe to move around
Swallowed the past, so I'd never have to see it again
Stand near the back

Now don't test fate
Patiently wait
Till your close enough to leave
To escape to escape to escape

And then you'll lay in a cocoon
Sleep under the moon
The wind will whisper a tune
Tea with macaroons
You're siting by the pool
You see a red balloon
A lady bug in june
Sipping honey from a spoon

I ran outside while they'd sleep
I'm not going back
Now I'm free
You press reset
then you'll start to see
Life can just flip
Suddenly

So don't look back
live in the past,
eyes to the sky
live your life
and then you'll start to, breathe.

And then you'll lay in a cocoon
Sleep under the moon
The wind will whisper a tune
Tea with macaroons
You're siting by the pool
You see a red balloon
A lady bug in june
Sipping honey from a spoon

Cocoon, the moon, a tune, red balloons
Cocoon, the moon, a tune, red balloons
Cocoon, the moon, June, a spoon
Cocoon, the moon, June, a spoon

Wait

You like it fake
You like it virtual
With all the flashing colors
The truth gets to be so beautiful
You like to take
Everything for yourself
If you could fill every shelf
You'd be so much closer to feeling safe

But don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

You make the world so dangerous with a stupid equation
Fighting for these finite places at the top has made you all insane
I see the drain
I see it being crystalized
You live on pain
It adds shine to your hollow lives

But don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

Now you live inside this tiny box, you call your life
And you wonder why you need so much space
To feel ok inside
Its hard to look around and not despise the suffering
It brings up all this guilt when all you want are the shiny things

And don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

And don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

Don't stop now (repeat)

Parasol

Sunday afternoon preparing for my cannonball
From the highest diving stall when you caught my eye
Your tail swinging side to side like a fancy parasol
The most ancient mating call was like morphine straight in my eye

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

The sky began to bloom with a swarm of fireflies
I sniffed the fumes of paradise and then I lost my mind
A midnight stroll with you left me weak in the knees
I could barely breathe when your hand brushed by mine

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

And these wild times I thought they would carry me
I got strung out on all that ecstasy
I know that you barely noticed me
I was a peasant in the presence of your majesty

Now love feels ten feet tall and 3000 miles away
Got straddled by a fantasy till it kicked me in the mouth
Now I drink every bottle on the shelf
How quickly you can find yourself with your face stuck to the ground

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

Orangutan

Is this life or is it a dream?
Whatever it is i'm not allowed to sleep
Distracted by the whir of that ticking machine
Body bruised from the twisting of sheets

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

Oooo Oooo

He said take my hand lets go for a walk
To a strange fairy land where animals talk
We hung out by the sand and drank soda-pop
Listen to orangutans discuss post modern thought

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

Oooo Oooo

I don't feel the growing pains anymore
Body slack with my back just holding up this wall

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

Winner

Hard times wore me down
Added ten years to my face
It's hard to swallow now
And get back in the race

They thought i'd be a winner
And make them proud
Escape this town
But life is one long winter
And i'm a cloud with a jesters crown

Sitting in an empty room
The cops will be here soon
And I could try and run away
But there's no real escape

They thought i'd be a winner
Make them proud
Escape this town
But life is one long winter
And i'm a cloud with a jesters crown

They they they they they they
Want me to talk it out
want me to walk it out
Get off stage

They they they they they they
Want me to talk it out
want me to walk it out
Get house trained

They they they they they they
Want me to talk it out
want me to walk it out
Be a slave

They they they they they they
Want me to walk it out
want me to talk it out

There's nothing to talk about (repeat)
