Track Name: Inside a Wall
I'm inside a wall
Above the floor
It's got some width
But I'd like more.

It's painted Dallas white
With Memphis trim
New Orleans holes
To let bugs in.

And all I want
Is to be somewhere else
So pack your things
Like your collar and bells.
We'll hit the road
In the morning at dawn
And by the evening
We'll be far gone.

All these years I've built
An empty shell
But if you ask
I'm doing well.
I haven't been around
So just don't start
When you went out
You broke my heart.

And all I want
Is to be someone else
So pack your things
Like your collar and bells.
We'll hit the road
In the morning at dawn
And by the evening
We'll be far gone.
Track Name: Breath on Skin
In these times do you feel less alive
After the brightness falls?
Like cutting a branch in a yard
To let more light in.

Breath on skin
Your hands around her waist,
Just a shade of light
Through the curtain lace.

Underneath the sheets
You remember her smile
Looking back across the miles.

Gather around
While the city remains in motion
We'll focus on the flash.

Some things remain
Though called by different names,
Let's make this moment last.
Track Name: The Sun
You are the sun
You are the cold that keeps me walking through the night
But I haven't said a word.
You are the one with all the big eyed pictures
You are the breeze
You are the quiet introspective places
But I haven't got the time
You are the one with all the funny faces.

But I'm
Inclined
To fight
To fly.

Like birds that fly
Through speeding cars at night
I'll just imply
That you're not wrong or right,
And when the sun illuminates your face
I'll know I've won and head for other places.

And I'll
Decline
To fight
To fly.

You are too late
You were too early to the party last night
But I haven't said a word.
You are a sage
Your insight keeps you from defeat (decay).
You are the trees
You are the grass and leaves and all the weather
But I haven't got the time
You are the one with all the crooked faces.

But I'm
Inclined
To fight
To fly.
Track Name: Is This the Way
Is this the room where the past dwells
Or a house where hidden fortune lies?

Is this the way toward a greater self
Or a path that leads astray?

With the breeze floats a thousand songs
One for every secret that's revealed.

There must be something beyond the trees
Something above the sky.
I want to know all you know-
You know, you know, you know?

Here's to the silence between our words
A quiet life for us to return.
A quiet life, that's what we need-
The silence between.

Moonglow over the roof tops,
So slow, your eyes are closing...

Is this the way?
Track Name: Perseus
The mirror is concave
The faces are distorted
I like the way you smile
I like the way you listen
The truth is all a lie
The lies they are cathartic
And even though I try
I can't quite seem to fake it.

And glycerine
Or pyridine
With acetone and chloroform
The Kuiper Belt
The lithosphere
The magnetized anomaly.

The silence is aware
The noise is hypnotizing
Myself I set aside
The answer walks beside me
With handshakes in the night
And disengaging laughter
A focal point in time
A life without a master.

And glycerine
Or pyridine
With acetone and chloroform
The Kuiper Belt
The lithosphere
The magnetized anomaly.
