Track Name: Before You Go
You have come into my life
Not a sign and no love
But I can see it in your eyes
I can feel the blue skies in your soul, oh

I don't know if you know
But my heart is swollen
Locked to a dependency
Caught by the moment when you talk to me
With those eyes, a beautiful green

Oh the canyon sings to me
All the red and the rocks at my feet

I wanna thank you before you go
Cause I know it's coming soon
I wanna thank you before you go
Cause I know that it will not bloom
I wanna thank you before you go
Cause I know it's coming soon
These days I know I'm breaking the silo
So please don't come back for me, no

Where to for you, dear?
I urge you to make it
I'll miss your gypsy heart
But that's all part of the currency of lust, or love, or leave

Oh the tides, they tend to me
To my nerve, pure sand, and a breeze

I wanna thank you before you go
Cause I know it's coming soon
I wanna thank you before you go
Cause I know that it will not bloom
Oh I wanna thank you before you go
Cause I know it's coming soon
These days I know I'm breaking the silo
So please don't come back for me, no
Track Name: Beware
Come all you boys and girls
Gather 'round, we've got to tell you
A secret you must not lose
You may not see them now
But in time they will appear
You must not let them affect you

They will wear a suit for you
Don't be fooled
Look out for all the clues

Listen to your heart
You will hear the truth
You will know what you need to do
Beware, beware
Wear your armor, dare
Dare to dream
Dare to speak your truth

Believe us boys and girls
When we say we speak the truth
We would never lie to you
We believe in you
And you must do it too
You're the light in this dark world we seek

They will wear a suit for you
Don't be fooled
Look out for all the clues

Listen to your heart
You will heart the truth
You will know what you need to do
Beware, beware
Wear your armor, dare
Dare to dream
Dare to speak your truth

Listen to your heart
You will heart the truth
You will know what you need to do
Beware, beware
Wear your armor, dare
Dare to dream
Dare to speak your truth
Track Name: Diagrams
I'm sitting here writing diagrams
Of how you're gonna respond to me
If I open up the flood gates,
Will you dead-pan?
Or will you fight for me?
And this is so ridiculous
I've never felt so human
I need a glimpse inside your head
And a lager in my hand, oh

Do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, do you love me? I just really need to know right now
Do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, do you love me? Cause I've never felt this way before

I know life can get so hard
The grit can pull you down
Oh I've been there, let me tell you so
And I understand where you're coming from
And I don't know love anymore
I just feel you inside my bones, and I want you so
I'm just missing the person I knew before

Do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, do you love me? I just really need to know right now
Do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, do you love me? Cause I've never felt this way before

It'll bring you down and it'll raise you up
All the joys you felt could easily crash back to the floor
We all aren't infallible, I know
But I had questioned yours

Oh, do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, do you love me? I just really need to know right now
Do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, are you getting there? Cause I've never felt this way before

Do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, do you love me? I just really need to know right now
Do you love me? Oh, do you love me?
Oh, do you love me? Cause I've never felt this way before
Track Name: Her Waltz
Tying off the thread, she pulls the last bead to the fold
The zipper closed upon her back, no secrets she has told
Swaying in the mirror, all the jewels shimmer gold

The drums appear between her ears
Her heart for sale is sold

High heels elevate the hem above the floor
The emerald queen summons her to the wooden drawer
Green upon her chest reflects just like a disco ball

And to the beat she claps her hands
Just her and the music, a wild romance
The night gives her a second chance
She whirls into the sky

From her heart
Her dance enchants the night
See them shine
The stars, her work of art

And to the beat she claps her hands
Just her and the music, a wild romance
The night gives her a second chance
She whirls into the sky
Track Name: Home
My heart is not here; it sits on another coast, an opposite world
That you see, you didn't need, and I wish I could take it away

It sits on the trees and branches, wearing faces and dust
And through my window, there were reds and yellows in the morning
In the morning

And mom and dad, they'd smile effervescently
Only you would know, if you'd come home

In the grass kicked up by my muddy steps
There were such years of work and training
That's where I did my deliberating
Oh the trees hear my songs as we
Sang at the top of our lungs
With our hands stretched out in a big open field
No one could hear but the wind,
The ghosts in the leaves, it was comforting
Even alone

And mom and dad, they'd smile effervescently
Only you would know if you'd come home

There were no lies, just butterflies and all the lovings of my life
No rain on my soul, no not in my humble abode
And the water it was still all the time, a pantomime
If you'd see my now in this smoggy building
with all these people whose hearts look like stone
Where's their home?

And mom and dad, they'd smile effervescently
Only you would know if you'd come home

We call this place home
The rain is calling me back home
We call this place home
Track Name: Phoenix
It was out of my control, and now I'm burning alive
My eyes can't see the colors; the grey has blinded my sight
It was out of my control; the fire glows up the night
Innocent I used to be, the thread has stained for life

I will rise so high
now it's time to say goodbye
To the place where the weeds grow
To the space where the prey roam
And I will die if I don't get out of here tonight
So goodbye

It was out of my control, and now I'm burning alive
I lost all my forgiveness, and now it's time to fly

So high, I will rise
Now it's time to say goodbye
To the place where the weeds grow
To the space where the prey roam
Light me now, and I will be clean for life this time

And there you'll find me where the grass grows
In the space where the water flows
And I will rise from where the ashes killed the light
So goodbye

It was out of my control
