Track Name: Criminal
The criminal in my mind
Wanting everything
and I don’t mind the dream

A criminal makes it better when
your times get hard again
and we don’t mind
we don’t mind

I can’t deny
a criminal mind
takes me over and over again

Oh I could change it but I just don’t mind
the criminal in everything
Track Name: The Addict
do you like the way it makes you feel?
do you think that thatll turn me on?
when your confusing everyone you know
trying to put on a show
but you take it to far

i dont believe you, i dont believe you

do you like the way it makes you feel
when your running up against the walls?
do you think that youre the only one
feel like youre coming undone?
this is only the start

am i getting through, to you?

i dont believe, one word that you tell me baby
i dont believe, one word that you tell me now
i dont believe, one word that you tell me baby
i dont believe, one word that you tell me now

I'm on my knees
I plead, I plead let me forget you
I don't believe
I'm on my knees
I plead, I plead let me forget you
I don't believe you

do you like the way it makes you feel
to be something other than you are?
if that's what you really want to be
dont even think about me
cause you are what you are

am i getting through, to you?

i dont believe, one word that you tell me baby
i dont believe, one word that you tell me now
i dont believe, one word that you tell me baby
i dont believe, one word that you tell me now

I'm on my knees
I plead, I plead let me forget you
I don't believe
I'm on my knees
I plead, I plead let me forget you
I don't believe you

i dont believe you, i dont believe you
i dont believe one word that you tell me
i dont believe you
Track Name: Waking Life
One more try and well find a way
to give what we've got in a better way
Oh my my here's another day
Don't you bring it down

Was I dreaming through the night?
Or was it waking life?
The story in my mind
The story in my mind knows

I was swimming in the sea
When an angel there in front of me
Looking in my eyes she told me wonders

She said rain it falls down from the sky
and grass grows up from under ground
So what is waking from this dreaming that you've done boy?

I think it was a riddle
that put me in the middle
The story in my mind
The story in my mind knows

Oh we've been waiting such a long time

All good things will come in a little while
All good things will come in a little while
Track Name: Movie
Like the day you came into my life
Come inside and make yourself a drink
You were lying like an ocean tide
Come inside and make yourself a drink

You can say it's what you want
but we know you better now
You can say it's what you want
but we know you better now

All eyes on you

You've got me thinking about that movie
You've got me thinking about that movie

Say, ay, ay...
Say, ay, ay...

Oh! she wants to talk
break it off, off of me
Oh! she wants to talk
break it off, off of me

Another day you came into my life
Come inside and make yourself a drink
You were running like an ocean tide
Come inside and make yourself a seat

You can say it's what you want
but we know you better now
You can say it's what you want
but we know you better now

All eyes on you

You've got me thinking about that movie
You've got me thinking about that movie

Say, ay, ay... Say, ay, ay!
Say, ay, ay... Say, ay, ay!

Oh! she wants to talk
break it off, off of me
Oh! she wants to talk
break it off, off of me

She can't get off it
She's tried before
She wanna move but she don't know which way
She wants to go

She's gonna break
down and she wants to
down and she wants to
down and she wants to

She's gonna break
down and she wants to
down and she wants to
down and she wants to

Say, ay, ay... Say, ay, ay!
Say, ay, ay... Say, ay, ay!

Oh! she wants to talk
break it off, off of me
Oh! she wants to talk
break it off, off of me
Track Name: A Thousand Stars
All good people walked a thinner line
And they remember all throughout the years

All good people name another life
When they knew better but lied to hide a fear

There we go a thousand stars
seem so close but shining so far apart
so we start from where we are

Good people are changing the world when they meet,
working with others
I think I can hear them they’re crowding the streets,
building in numbers
I know they won’t stop, the reforming,
there’s no sleeping here
I know they won’t stop, the reforming,
till some peace is here

All good people walked a thinner line
And they remember all throughout the years

All good people dream a better life
Forever after but they try to find it here

There we go a thousand stars
seem so close but shining so far apart
so we start from where we are

Good people are changing the world when they meet,
working with others
I think I can hear them they’re crowding the streets,
building in numbers
I know they won’t stop, the reforming,
there’s no sleeping here
I know they won’t stop, the reforming,
till some peace is here

There we go a thousand stars
seem so close shining so far apart
so we start from where we are…
Track Name: Mother
this was the first day
i was ok with how i feel
learning a new game
mending a woman i can heal
waiting for angels in a field

but your cradle is wide
i will lay down
i will lay down and dream for you

alone a mother grieves and learns to say goodbye
alone a mother grieves and learns to say goodbye

i feel a thunder
below the ocean’s rise
carry me over
if you can turn water into wine
make me the peace i need to find

but your cradle is wide
i will lay down
i will lay down and dream for you

alone a mother grieves and learns to say goodbye
alone a mother grieves and learns to say goodbye

i will lay down
mother mary cries while i say goodbye
Track Name: Suzanne
on the Grape Street i met my best friend
she was dressed in all blue
she said her name was Suzanne
and we shook our hands
drank and talked till two

the next week we met in New Hope
and she tried to buy me beer
my friend Mark was playing alto
when the butterflies appeared

remember Abilene’s
when i would hold you too long
we were told we’d have to leave real soon
don’t wanna wait another week or two

i’ll be the first to admit
that i often rock the boat
i half expect you to quit
but you never did
and somehow you keep us afloat

like when we took a ride to Homestead
to meet the avatar
but somehow end up eating sweet breads
and screaming n the car

up in Temagami
so far away from it all
through the ribbons in the sky we flew
giving up on finding things to do

someday she’ll give up her hand
to another man, and end our games for good
and I’ll wish I asked her to dance
and took a chance
somethings you never knew
somethings you never knew

i found a love in Suzanne
it’s bigger than
all that we’ve been through
she’s made me more than i am
that’s a better man
i can’t help but love you
i can’t help but love you, Suzanne
Track Name: The Time
I'll just say one thing
and leave it alone
I'll just say one thing
and leave it alone

Of all the world's that collide
You know why
Waiting in all good time
and you know

You won't forget it while you're gone
This is the time
You won't forget it while you're gone
This is the time
Don't you forget it while you're gone
Good luck for now
This is the time

Leave it alone
I'll just say one thing
and leave it alone

I'll just say one thing

Of all the world's that collide
You know why
Waiting in all good time
and you know

You won't forget it while you're gone
This is the time
You won't forget it while you're gone
This is the time
Don't you forget it while you're gone
Good luck for now
This is the time

Leave it alone
I'll just say one thing
and leave it alone
Track Name: The Way That You Are
Never tried to make you beautiful
Never tried to make you beautiful
It's just the way that you are

Want to write you something beautiful
Like all the pictures you start
paint a flame around your heart

Paint your picture sign your name
and show me what you're after
Paint your picture sign your name
and show me what you're after

Never tried to make you beautiful
Never tried to make you beautiful
It's just the way that you are

Want to write you something beautiful
Like all the pictures you start
paint a flame around your heart

Paint your picture sign your name
and show me what you're after
Paint your picture sign your name
and show me what you're after
Track Name: Love Is Everyone
Thinking in an empty downtown subway train
Days pass like a oneway street car crash
I’m looking at you’re photograph
Hoping that it might bring back
A little bit of what we had
I want to tell you what I couldn’t say before

Don’t go cryin child
You’re gonna get through
Everything alright
Don’t go cryin child
You've gotta sit through
More than just tonight

Why lie when everything that passes by
Shows itself a flicker and it’s gone
Left behind an ocean as it came to meet you
Maybe I was wrong

Oh I! Love is everyone that you know
If you open up and let it show
Oh I! Love is everyone that I know
If you open up and let it show
Track Name: Heavy Hand
You’ve got that look of a man who’s been waiting
far too long, I understand
You’ve been working too hard
and it’s breaking, breaking your heart
Not what you planned

Just before i fly out of myself
I will wave my heavy hand

That cold dull shock at the wrist in the morning
from breaking the earth, no wage is fair
With featherless wings
we lay watching the bellies of birds
fly through the air

Slowly i will lower and arrange myself
in a heap of sighs

All imaginary angry peers
Truth for everybody holding dear
All imaginary angry peers
This one is true
Break down if you know the way
This one is true

Can’t get that smell off your hands
but you’re sleeping out under the stars
you’ve earned your share
What will become of the bargains
we’ve made with the earth
Bury me there

Slowly i will lower and arrange myself
in a heap of sighs
in a heap of sighs
in a heap of sighs
Slowly i will lower and arrange myself
Slowly i will lower and arrange myself
Track Name: Sleeping Queen
Golden afternoon delight
Playground children flying kite
Ring around the rosy like
Ashes, ashes, everyone fall down

All hail kings the queen she sleeps
Makeshift fortress bedroom sheets
All hail jesters don’t you weep
Long will live our sleeping queen

Cover your eyes count down from ten
and give me time to hide
Mississippi one go find your friends
Where do they hide?

Golden afternoon delight
Playground children flying kite
Ring around the rosy like
Ashes, ashes, everyone fall down

All hail kings the queen she sleeps
Makeshift fortress bedroom sheets
All hail jesters don’t you weep
Long will live our sleeping queen
Oh..Oh..Ashes..
