Track Name: Inside Out
Well, you pleaded, and you pleaded
'Cause you need this
Like a hole in the head
But it's here, yeah it's here
And at least that's one less thing to fear.
You've been running so long
Telling yourself lies
You've been running so long
On the outside while the inside dies

Now you're real down
So we kneel down
And we feel round for the unravelling threads
But time stands still
In the doldrums till we've had our fill
You've been running so long
Wearing yourself out
You've been running so long
Find your freedom from the inside out.
Track Name: One Percent
Lay with me tonight
Help me separate the shadows from the light
Let your long hair down
Soften me with platitudes and suchlike.
For tonight I cannot rest
Can't forget those pilotless machines of death
Or the one percent that scheme
To take away our freedom while we daydream

Nobody noticed
But the rules of the game have changed
They lay their traps while we sleep, while we sleep
Nobody noticed
But the rules of the game have changed
They lay their traps while we sleep

Lay with me tonight
Let me lose myself for a while in something right
Let your long hair down
To fall across your skin against the lamplight
For tonight I cannot rest
Keep thinking about those criminals with badges on their chest
Who gun down unarmed men
Steal our secrets and our right to protest

Nobody noticed
But the rules of the game have changed
They lay their traps while we sleep, while we sleep
Nobody noticed
But the rules of the game have changed
They lay their traps while we sleep
Track Name: Song For Lily
Sweet, sweet soul
Tell me how can you be
A gift on the wings of time
Yet such a part of me
When I saw you first draw breath
I thought my heart would crack
Something inside me changed and will never change back

Here on this sun-kissed earth
I put myself by your side
I put my roots down deep
I spread my branches wide
Trying to give you shelter and to give you room
And with the winds at my back I watched you bloom

You with your laugh like bells
You with your heart so pure
May others know you well
And may your heart's flame roar
Let all your fears be still
And let your voice ring loud
All these years watching you I've felt nothing but proud.

Life is a river strange
With currents we can't direct
Sometimes our lives they change
In ways that you can't expect
But fears are seldom true
And blessings are often hid
You can see any dark times through and be glad that you did.

You with your laugh like bells
You with your heart so pure
You with your will like fire
Ah may your heart's flame roar
Let all your fears be still
And let your voice ring loud
All these years watching you I've felt nothing but proud.
Track Name: Mercury
Child of the sea
With your love like mercury
Fading away
At the end of the day
Let me go where I must
Into dreams, into dust
Let me just slip away
Like mercury

I slip down the steps
From this city of nets
Down to the shore
To the water once more
Let the moon set my course
Let my heart be my horse
Let me just slip away
Like mercury
Track Name: Black Rider Blues
It was a distant sound that woke him
Where his promises lay broken
And they lay in shards around him
That was where temptation found him
He had a hollow pain inside him
Like desire and fear colliding
There were ten black riders riding
through the places he had cried in
Singing 'I've got bad things on my mind'

I was born alone last summer
Disappointment was my mother
As I rose up from the embers
She was all I could remember
And now I find myself in this land
Like a fish upon the hot sand
Full of doubts and desperation
The scars of a million separations
I've got bad things on my mind.
Track Name: Birds
Wanna change, but it's hard
When the skin that you live in is scarred
From the choices you've made
To discard it's a matter of shedding your pride
I'm not skilled in that art
Wasn't made for such times
I wouldn't know where to start

But you know that you've made a mistake
When the things you've been leaning on break
When the night comes
It's more than a person can take
And you thought about taking it slow
And just finding some place you can go
But this way of living's all that you know, it's all that you know, it's all that you know

Waking up, waking up,
From a dream about blood in your cup
With your feathers all stuck
From the window it looks like those birds are all sick
And their files are corrupt
And you're catching their luck
And you hope it won't stick

Now you wonder what good things can grow
From the days planted all in a row
In the bed that you made a long time ago
And you thought about making it plain
That you won't take rejection again
But these situations they all end the same, they all end the same, they all end the same
Track Name: Evangelina
Evangelina, Evangelina, you better roll your airplane down.

Evangelina, Evangelina, there ain't no need to leave town.

I know the floods will rise

And I know we'll only fight

We've done that scene a thousand times

But I still want you tonight.



Evangelina, Evangelina, with your parasols and pearls

Evangelina, yeah you're the queen of your self-constructed world

That I can't penetrate.

But the riddler at the gate

Shows me enough to keep me stuck

So I just stand here and wait.



Now, we all look for happiness

We take our guess and we learn.

But seeking it in your caress

Now, all that does is burn.



Evangelina, I haven't seen you then you show up on my phone

Evangelina, reminding me that I'm not free I'm just out on loan.

You wear me down inside

And subjugate my pride

But if you still want me I'll be there

With my blind eyes open wide.



Now, we all look for happiness

We take our guess and we learn.

But seeking it in your caress

Now, all that does is burn.
Track Name: Lie To Me
Where do you come from my sad, sad love?

What is it I remind you of?

Where do you go with your tears so black?

Tell me why do they come right back?

With your mind somewhere else

And the feelings you hide

I know seeing myself

In your sympathy's bright light

Is gonna hurt anyway

So come on and lie to me

And though it's the end

We'll both know but we can both pretend it isn't so.



Saw your face fall as the cold sun rose

There's a chill in our morning clothes.

Memories come and they take your smile

Leave me wondering a long, long while

Whether to leave

Whether to stay

I want to believe

But in the end all that I can say

Is it'll hurt anyway

So come on and lie to me

And though it's the end

We'll both know but we can both pretend it isn't so.
Track Name: Until The Water Runs Clean
Come walk with me along the banks, love.

For the the things I'm about to say

I want to beg for the devil to take me away.

All that remains is just pieces

That I cling to and cut myself on

I want to sweep them away and be done.



Until the water runs clean

I would bathe all your wounds

Until the water runs clean

But the water will never run clean for me.



Come walk with me along the banks, love.

For the the things I'm about to say

You know I beg the devil to take me away.

All that remains is just pieces

And sometimes i wish they were gone

We're gonna sweep them away and be done.



Until the water runs clean

I would bathe all your wounds

Until the water runs clean

But the water will never run clean for me.
Track Name: What's Left Is Mine
The flood came today
It swept my illusions away
Yeah well you know, the truth,
It's cold like steel.
It makes you feel things you didn't think you could feel.

You knew me when I was young.
You knew me before I'd become what I've become.
So help me to find
The strength to run one more time
Fear took the best of my days
But what's left is mine.

In the small hours I go
To the open arms of another low
Songs are pictures of nothing that's real
But we make them so that we understand what we feel.

You knew me when I was young.
You knew me before I'd become what I've become.
So help me to find
The strength to run one more time
Fear took the best of my days
But what's left is mine.
Track Name: Frail Like Me
It was a time like this
It was a long time ago.
I tried to raise myself but you brought me low.
You took the form of
The things I wanted most
But by the time I reached you I had the form of a ghost.
Yeah you made life into death
You made the truth a lie
I think you needed me
I think we both know why.
I found a highway
But I don't miss it much
You think I lost you
I think you lost your touch

I know you're frail like me
I know you're frail like me
But you forget, you forget

Now when I look at you
From a far-off land
I see a bended knee
I see an outstretched hand.
I see the dust swept underneath your throne
I see the hand of death - it says I'm on my own
I know you'll come to me
I know you'll wear a mask
I know that I won't run
I know you won't dare ask.
'Cause when I face you
I'm going to look right down
Into your empty heart
Into your empty crown

I know you're frail like me
I know you're frail like me
But you forget, you forget
