Track Name: A little bit of cryin'
A little bit of cryin'



What will you do now that
All your hopes turn into fears
Will you cope or let out the tears

A little bit of cryin' now
Well that could be just fine
But those rivers that you cry
They'll drown your heart & mine


Take your stuff and leave me now
Yeah grab your things and go
Go but grab them slow

Rip these pictures off your wall
If that is what you want
They watch you from above
And remind you of my love


What will you do now that
All your hopes turn into fears
Will you cope or let out the tears

A little bit of cryin'
Has never done any harm
But those rivers that you shed
They'll flood us all away
Track Name: We can't find the light
We can't find the light


Girl I hate when you're looking at me
Cause you're not really watching me
You're seeking my eyes just to see yourself

Oh and I hate that smile
And that deceptively generous touch
You're fucking me now just to feel yourself

We can't find a light
We can't find a light
It's a wet cigarette we're trying to ignite
We can't find the light

Girl I can't stand when you're delighting me
Cause you're not truly kind to me
You're licking my lips just to feed yourself

And how I hate to feel this way
But here are those words in your mouth
(You're) praising me just to praise yourself

We can't find a light
We can't find a light
It's a wet cigarette we're trying to ignite
We can't find the light
Track Name: The Dust
The Dust


Your thoughts are wild horses
Galloping in the dirt
Look at the thousand hooves
Whipping up the dust

You once had all the words
You forgot all the words
Now your tongue is twisted
(Your mind is broken)

You need water to wash that dust
To wash it off of your eye
Love is only dirt
It's a blind and naked murderer

It holds you in his hand
But you don't understand
Just where it's a-goin'
Where you're goin'
Track Name: Interlude (in the woods)
A parrot that talks
A Jesus that walks on the water
I have it all in my socks

A bottomless box
A grand-pa that rocks
Yeah I have all of this in my socks

But where are my feet
As I stroll down the street
Yeah where are my toes
I ask but nobody knows

Am I touching the ground
Am I making a sound
Am I loosing my head
Am I sane, am I dead ?
Track Name: Horses in the storm
Staying awake
When the night is out
Sounds and shadows
Dancing loud

Feeling the cold wind
Feeling the rain

The shame to be blind in a silence so great
Is now on your mind
So many hours are lost in the dark of your mind
And they rot

So many lights in the sky and you're scared
And you don't know why
You shake like a horse in the storm
And you run in the meadow, lost

Swearwords that rot in the mouth of the speechless
And within the eye of the coward oh oh oh
It's filling your mouth and so you're crying oh oh oh oh

I lean on your mind on the side of the road
Something in there burns but I can't see the light

Freedom in your mind is all you want
To the ends of death

I feel the power in me on my cushions of blood
There's a wolf at my door
I feel the power in me and the howlin' of his in the storm
Track Name: Out of sight in the direction of my body
All of the trees all of the boughs all of the leaves
The grass at the foot the boulders and the houses so many
Afar the sea that your eye washes those images of one day
[and the next
The vices the virtues that are so imperfect

The transparence of men that pass in the streets of hazard
And women that pass in a fume from your dour questing
Leaden-heart-shaped ideas so deep on your virgin lips

The vices the virtues that are so imperfect

The eyes consenting resembling the eyes you vanquish
The confusion of the bodies the lassitudes the ardours
The imitation of the words the attitudes the ideas

The vices the virtues that are so imperfect

Love is man unfinished
Track Name: Nobody's blue
They say you're just a little girl
I think it's just a big excuse
They say you feel so low, my girl/squirrel
I think you get too high, you abuse

They say you're wet with tears
I think you're too dry to be sad
They say you're sweet but it appears
You're too bitter to be glad

Oh but now holler, kick and scream, shout at me
Before the dark gets a hold of you
Don't let the blue make you numb
Cause this blues is nobody's blue

I hear them all say your blues is
Nobody's fault but mine
But I lick up your wounds I'm trying to heal your bruises
Everybody's going blind

They say you're too young to cope
I think I'll get old without you
Just keep moaning and moping
I'll hop around for you

Oh but now holler, kick and scream, shout at me
Before the dark gets a hold of you
Don't let the blue make you numb
Cause this blues is nobody's blue
Track Name: Dull is the sting
The light was gone, the dark was all around
We said "I love you" to see through the night
The light has come back now and we have found
A new day. "I love you" is no longer right

Dull is the sting
Dull is the sting

You sing as if you'd swallowed all your dreams
And kept all of the colors on your lips
And now your tongue is painting, hanging low
And now I see you panting, humming oh

Fun is the singin'
Fun is the singin'
Track Name: Interlude #3 (so long)
So long
So long my dear
I've come to hear
Your last goodbye
And maybe a sigh
Maybe a cry

Goodbye
Goodbye my love
My heart's at a loss
Cause I'm letting you down
Yes I'm letting you down
But I'm leaving you sound

And if goodbye is too good a word
Then as the poet said, I'll say
Fare thee well

Farewell
Farewell my lady
My love has faded
I've come to grief
I've come to grieve you
I've come to leave you
Track Name: Long Dark Blues
If Love is for breaking your heart
Is Hate is for healing and restart
If night is for lightning up your thoughts
Is light is for darkening what you have got

And I thought you were for being forever mine
But I see you were for teaching me pain
You were not for making me happy but for tearing me apart
You were for killing me softly, that was your part

Will these hollow words mend your broken heart?
Would you follow me again if I asked you to restart?
And all those empty sparks of thinking, will it bring reason to my mind?
And all this happy ridiculous cheering up, will it ever help to find? peace?

If Love is for breaking your heart
Is Hate is for healing and restart
If night is for lightning up your thoughts
Is light is for darkening what you have got
Track Name: Lullaby
I could wander about
Going in, going out Your dreams
I could stand here for hours
Just to sing and devour Your eyes
I may turn off the light
And I’d stay here all night With you
You might put on some clothes
And give me one of those Cause It’s cold
But this coat is too big
Just for me I would need
You to wear it with me
That’s the way that I chose
So that I can be close
Up to you and your breasts
Close to you and your breasts
Separate from the rest
That’s the best thing I can dream about
I may turn off the light
And I’d stay here all night With you
Just one more lullaby
And I’ll lie by your side Tonight
You might pour some more wine
In my cup and that’d be fine With me
But this cup is too big
Just for me I would need
You to drink it with me
That’s the way that I chose
So that I can be close
Up to you and your lips
Close to you and your lips
With my hands on your hips
That’s the next thing I can think about
I could wander about
Going in, going out Your dreams
I could lie here for hours
Just to sing and devour Your eyes
Track Name: When the hungry ghost of your love whispers in my ear
Life gave me a love aflame
It gave me your skin and breast

Gave me your light and thoughts
That now is time to waste

They would all do the same
They would all do the same
Cause it was great to taste

There's so much light in you
So many thoughts, like letters
And they just wait to be mailed

If you could only manage
This trembling voice to behave
And sing your heart out to them

You gave me a shape and frame
That I would never find

A shadow and a name
But I leave it all behind


I had found a curious pride
That now is time to lose

A sort of glory by my side
Now what am I to choose

I feel a strange guilt and shame
Reasons are unclear

No remorse, doubt or pain
But still the feelings, are here

Is there someone here to blame
Is there someone left to blame

Maybe this life that gave me your skin
Golden and smooth

Your thighs your eyes
Slender fingers, the back of your neck
Gave me all I could crave

But is it a fun game to play
I mean, look at what we became

There's a flame that is gone
But is it the same for all

I had found a curious pride
That now is time to lose

A sort of glory by my side
Now what am I to do

You gave me a shape and frame
That I would never find

Say a shadow and a name
And I leave it all behind
