Track Name: Do You Even Know?
Watching the world go by
Where faster isn't always better
You can make a wish on the fly
And pretend that you don't care
Watching the world go by
Going blank with the TV, potato pose
When people are so unkind
You could call but you don't dare

Do you even know...
that you are loved?

Watching the world go by
Where blowing smoke out numbs the soul
Reflecting on days gone by
Like the world's coming to an end
Watching your friends stroll by
Sometimes it's best to just let 'em go
You can say a prayer on the fly
Or sleep it off again

Do you even know...
That you are loved?
Track Name: Shesus
Well, I tried to drink you outta my skull
Sour wine surely took its toll
You're in my heart, you're in my head
While I'm dreaming of Chesed
You're my companion

Well, I whined and spouted at the air
It's not a crime if no one's there to care
I spewed it out
My vomit mouth, I threw it all up
and I lost my kind companion
I'd like to cut off my own tongue
I'd like to make it all undone

I will flow into your motion
I'll let go with you and then
I will ride into your ocean
On its tide I'll soak you in
I will crash in waves upon you
I will chill you to the bone
I will kiss and then caress you
I will cherish you,
Cherish you alone
I will
Cherish you alone

For you, an amulet made of acacia
For you, a seed to sink in fallow ground
For you my glorious is jubilation
My sweetest love, you turn me to a hound

Oh, nix it all and burn with adoration
Oh, nix it all and resonate with love
Hey, let it go these words I say
Down in your brain, driving me insane
Observe me as I nix it all for love

I will flow into your motion
I'll let go with you and then
I will ride into your ocean
On its tide I'll soak you in
I will crash in waves upon you
I will chill you to the bone
I will kiss and then caress you
I will cherish you,
Cherish you alone
I will
Cherish you alone
I will Cherish you alone
Track Name: Beulah
What kind of man will drink from the fountain
Where wellsprings never do run dry
And what kind of man comes to that fount again
Captive to the whispering eye
She comes again
I'm lit within
Electrified, Satisfied
Rock hard as sin, the Promised Land within
Beulah, she's raptured to the sky

You are my Favorite.
Drunk on your gin.
I wanna plumb the depths of you again.
You're my affliction.
My sealed fate.
I need you now, I hope it's not too late, Beulah.

I'm the kind of man
I've got a secret plan
To sew you in the fabric of my life, Beulah.
And I'm the kind of man
To get in your head again
Plastered to the surface of your mind
Possessed, I dare
Here in my lair
I'm gonna bless you bad tonight
Lust in the air
Good Lord, I swear
I'm gonna suck you dry

You are my Favorite.
Drunk on your gin.
I wanna plumb the depths of you again.
You're my affliction.
My sealed fate.
I need you now, I hope it's
Not too late.

Need you now, I hope it's not too late.
Need.
Track Name: Last Request
All the things we did before
Just don't matter anymore
Every thought we ever had
Every feeling, be it good or bad
And my last request...

Consider now, every kiss
Every drunken state of bliss
Every stupid cigarette
Every time I've seen her silhouette
And my last request is...

I wanna take her dancing
You know it's what she needs
Take her romancing
Swing her in the breeze
Dancing barefoot in the leaves

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

These autumn leaves are bright as hell
Dying leaves no tales to tell
When she passed, I froze
Paralyzed
Her scent still on her clothes
And my last request...

December and the cold winds come
East of Eden sets the sun
All the dreams we made
Mist
Vapor
Visiting her grave
And my last request is...

I wanna take her dancing
You know it's what she needs
Take her romancing
Swing her in the breeze
Dancing barefoot in the leaves

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

This wooden chair has been my friend
Hold me up just once again
And if you feel me start to rise
Chuckle
As I float on southern skies
And my last request...

So.
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray again the Lord my soul will take
And my last request is...

I wanna take her dancing
You know it's what she needs
Take her romancing
Swing her in the breeze
Autumn and it's ease
Me and my baby
And we're dancing barefoot in the leaves.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Track Name: You Bring The Color
When shadows fall on a long gray day
You fill the room with the light you create
When all else fails, when all is lost
Your laughter seems to always ease the pain
When my heart is worked too hard
Your smile radiates
Your face lifts my day
You bring the color, you bring the light
You could be blessing everything in sight

And I can't get it right
But somehow all is fine
And I can't quite speak it right
It shines fine in the light

You bring the color
You bring the light
You bring the color
You bring delight
Track Name: Moonstruck
We're all
Flustered and well done
Twinkle set
Fidget finding
Melting in the Sun

And we're all
Label wearing
Walls High
Bi-polar
Babbit-holding
Just a tad gun shy

We're all attached to buried wear and tear
All attached to trash-prone wear and tear

And we're all
(just a little crazy)
Tickled and tied down
In yellow fright
Lemon eyes inhaling all blue light

And we're all
(just a bit off key)
Souly holes in search of sight
See saw stricken blind by someone else's light

Open eyes will never rest at night
Open eyes will never rest at night

So I got up
And tossed my T.V.
Now channel surfing haunts me in my dreams
If I scratch or bite you, it's just remnants from a past life
When me, a prize fighter
Shadow boxing
But the world alone will give us our beatings
The world alone will give us our beatings

We're all
a little crazy
We're all
just a bit off key
We're all
Track Name: Melancholy Mona
Melancholy Mona
She steps in the room
And everybody knows it
By the scent of her sweet perfume
Melancholy Mona
Having a small soiree
She got folks to impress tonight
Cuz impressive is her way

And she's high as a kite
She just might start up a fight
She just might fight you all night
But it's all good,
you''ll make up and you'll laugh with her all day

Oh, Mona
She ain't always there
But you can feel a mad pulse in the
cool gaze of her stare
Melancholy Mona
With a smile to raise the dead
You can't know the craziness
Lurking there in that head

And she's high as a kite
She just might start up a fight
She just might kick you tonight
But it won't hurt for long 'cuz you know
it heals her soul

Ink stains on her fairy tale dress, she
works hard at the GR Press
And she knows it
She knows it
That place is such a mess
It don't lead to any form of success
No, it don't.

Sometimes you just need to sit and cry
Sometimes you need to talk about all your life
Sometimes you gotta let it out and scream at the sky
Sometimes you wanna punch me in the eye
Sometimes you wanna jail your emotion
Sometimes you wanna let your heart out to run
Sometimes when life ain't so much fun
Just think about our conversations, and

Fly like a kite
You just might tear a hole right through the night
You just might shine so bright
that when all else fails there's only you to look into.

Oh, Mona.
Only you to look into
Track Name: Even When She's Mean
She's got a hole in her heart and you know no man can fill it
She's gonna soon depart, man, you'll think about her every single day
She's got a mountain of ashes
A mouth full of spite
But her lips are a luscious fascinating sight
So you love her, you love her, you love her
Even when she's mean.

She got some cold cruel gazes that send you beggin' for mercy
She's got a mind that's crazed and made to mess with anyone in her way
She's got some hands made for choking and
Feet made to leave
But her hips, lips, tits and you'll be beggin' on your knees
'Cuz you love her, you love her, you love her
Even when she's mean.

Say a prayer to the air just to see if you can fill it.
Say a prayer just to pretend that there's somebody who cares.

She's a mean bad woman
She'll chew you to the bone
And when you think she's finally through, she won't leave you alone
'Cuz you love her, you love her, you love her
Even when she's mean.

I'm gonna steal that woman when I think you least expect it
I'm gonna take that witch when I finally get her alone some night
I'm gonna take her away when she's sick of your depression
You'll finally feel the coffin nail of her cold, sad rejection
'Cuz I love her, I love her, I love her
Even when she's mean.

'Cuz I love her, I love her, I love her
But she ain't mean as me.
She ain't mean as me.
She ain't mean as me.
She ain't mean as me.
Track Name: Horizon Blue
You, Horizon Blue
I'm into Horizon Blue
I need you to bring me through
And I'm...
Oooh, Blue.

And I'm prying.
But I will take you with me
And we will search from higher heights
Of figurings and colourings

And when Blue
The cow jumped over the moon
Love jumped over the spoiled little girl
Yet to another, just another
Upon a swing once just for you,
Horizon Blue

You, Horizon Blue
I'm into Horizon Blue
Hey, I need you
To bring me through
And I'm
mmmm.mmm. Blue

And I'm crying.

You said you asked for underdogs.
The atmosphere was far too low,
We want all that (we have) all that we want

And when Blue.
The cow jumped over the moon
Love jumped over the spoiled little girl
Yet to another, just another
Upon a swing once just for you
The cow met Jane on the run
The atmosphere, it was far too low
Yet to another, just another
Upon a swing once just for you, Horizon Blue
Upon a swing once just for you, Horizon Blue
Upon swing once just for you, Horizon Blue
Yet to another, just another
Horizon Blue
Yet to another, just another
Horizon Blue
