Talk

download mp3

We are younger than
the canopy above
Out on a lonely walk
Cool air stings my throat so
how can I talk?
Drift into a strange world with the
allure of lights above
Cries like you have a doubt
Accused you of walking out, but then
how can I talk?
Take that drive, find that life
Tell me how it feels to
Take that drive, find that life
and prove to me it’s true
Flip a finger into the blue
(not a great life but happily still living
Not a great life we’d be happy to relive it)
Time to clear the air
like we’ve cleared this ground
Through doors blown open by the wind
Barefoot children of November run and
scream when I talk!

Faster 

download mp3

A long walk home sky opening
pouring out sunrise
A light that hope brings
In this town
good men are waking
To a threat that starts the day we’re born
carries us down the path
into the path of the storm
Cradled in justice’s arms
but too weak to warn
I see, I see one wheel turning
Pulled out of the race
I couldn’t get over
Pulled my tongue in
won’t speak till I’m sober
But in the line of fire
stands a lover
As darkness piles up in your head
freedom was the last
the last word said
What do we learn
from those who’ve bled?
I see, I see one wheel turning
Faster than the rest
Faster than the rest
Faster than the rest
Can’t keep up with you
I can’t keep up with you
One wheel turning

The Call of Cygnus Cygnus

download mp3

It’s a different kind of sunset
We sing freebird one last time
Took off in mornings of blue sky
Too soon to be facing our long night
Ooooh ooooo the call of Cygnus Cygnus
Oooh ooooo the call of Cygnus Cygnus
Now we live out by the airport
where there’s lots of open space
And sonic booms above us
gifts from the human race
Like mushroom clouds or beaches
with melted footprints in the sand
Took off this morning in blue skies
now there’s nowhere left to land
I heard the scream ooh ooooo
The call of Cygnus Cygnus
Ooh ooooo the call of Cygnus Cygnus
In a different kind of story
I wrote myself out of your life
Took the speakers and my TV,
Consider, consider it goodbye
As each one takes a number
Waits out their life in line
Dreams disappear like blue skies
as the reaper takes each one in time
I heard a scream ooh ooooo
The call of Cygnus Cygnus
The call of Cygnus Cygnus
What’s that have to leave
Perfect 10 don’t come with me
Sleepless night cup o’ joe
Got no spine didn’t I tell you why
I heard the scream ooh ooooo
The call of Cygnus Cygnus
The call of Cygnus Cygnus

The Story

download mp3

The accent, burning incense and then
some old song, on my ears, in a trance
Hot when you sing it, hot whispers burn on lips
Light of a candle, dancing, shadow on hips
So talk to me now, how could it hurt?
Anytime now, you’ve got the words to
Heat this house with stories
Fantastic stories of love
That you and I just wrote
She gives words, lives to act on a stage
But they always expire, quickly taken away Lovers,
in the background wait for trust
Till I saw another scene fade in, you called it lust
So…talk…
Please observe, a moment to look at the stars
Shining down on us,
our time to act on desire and
Heat this house…

The end of the war as we know it

download mp3

When I look at the sky
The clouds are faces
I could have known
Blown to places they shouldn’t go Killing for a lie
When I look at this life
Too many calls on the telephone
Information I should have known
confused me for a while
We came, we saw and we conquered
We came, but shouldn’t have bothered
So much oil and sand, too many bodies draped in flags
well, I don’t think I should follow
When I look at our hands building
killing machines made of nuts and bolts
Those famous thumbs pushed into the throats
in every foreign land
So is this our fate?
Innocence born in ingnorance
of tacit lies told to keep the peace
by every head of state
We came, we saw and we conquered
We came, but shouldn’t have bothered
So much oil and sand, too many bodies draped in flags
well, I don’t think I should follow
It started out with a tax from the King
Battleship Maine, the Gulf of Tonkin
Lusitania, WMDs
Tricked into war, always tricked into war
Tricked into war, always tricked into war

The Child

download mp3

Well aren’t you just
a little bit young?
To have given up
your whole world and run
But you’ll be running
Back to me
And aren’t you just
a little bit sad?
Remembering only
bad dreams you’ve had
But you’ll be dreaming
back to sleep
And the whole world loves you
‘cause you’re a child
And a child hasn’t seen
a whole world go mad
I don’t want your bad dreams
to come true
I don’t want your bad dreams
I only wanted you
to cheer up and smile
some good dreams awhile
Wishing upon a star
being chased by the moon
Dancing on an ocean
being spilled from a spoon
Of all your memories
remember those
precious moments and don’t you know that
The whole world…
