Criminal 04:08
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

Waking Life 04:31
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

Movie 05:05
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

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…

Mother 03:14
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

Suzanne 05:16
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

The Time 04:22
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

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

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

Heavy Hand 03:46
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

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..
