Identity 03:35
Look at me, all of me Look at me, all of me I am not a man I am not a woman All I could taste is my burning heart I'm sure I'm not a man I'm sure I'm not a woman All I could wear is a willing smile Sew me back together again Back Sew me back together again Back Together again I am not a man I am not a woman All I could do is keep on crying Sew me back together again Back Sew me back together again Back Together again Look at me, all of me Look at me, all of me Look at me, all of me Look at me, all of me Sew me back together again

Jealous 04:04
Cut through the nerve Cut through the bone Cut through the blood I'm shedding my identities Swallow it whole I shit it out When they try to label me I can sing all those love songs now You're just jealous You're just jealous I shed my skin Year after year Joker in the wild deck Save us from disaster When trouble comes Trouble always comes I can read your fear You won’t survive it You're just jealous You're just jealous I've been hurt Made to bleed I lost everything Except the reality of pain You're just jealous You're just jealous

Runaway Girl 03:21
Soft as an angel Hope for the sunshine Nobody loves you Heart is filled with pain The future seems brighter The flowers are blooming Hope with a gentle whisper Waiting for that train I'm tired You run I'm so alone You hide Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Heart is filled with pain Imagine there's no hatred Violence murder or war The killing shocked the country The years slip away Chiming softly in the morning Sun sets far away Shame was brought to the surface You've got to live I'm tired You run I'm so alone You hide (x2) Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Girl Nobody loves you Runaway Heart is filled with pain pain pain pain…

The Unshaken 03:27
Who am I now? Who are you now? Who are we now? It's a mystery to me You want more than you have You want more than you need Who are we ever When your thoughts begin to bleed? You're the one with the heart of a horse You're the one with the light in her eyes You're the one who sees all ways You're the one who will shake The Unshaken A dumb pawn in white A dumb pawn in black The faded hearts of America Who comes and goes? Who speaks out? Who don’t wanna look what's going down? You're the one with the blazing guns You're the one with no one to lead them You're the one that runs through the glass Who knows the name of the game You're the one with the heart of a horse You're the one with the light in her eyes You're the one who sees all ways You're the one who will shake The Unshaken You're the one with the blazing guns You're the one with no one to lead them You're the one that runs through the glass Who knows the name of the game You're the one with the heart of a horse You're the one with the light in her eyes You're the one who sees all ways You're the one who will shake The Unshaken The Unshaken The Unshaken The Un! The Unshaken The Unshaken The Un! The Unshaken

Alone 03:38
I am love I am hate I am gay I am straight She got scared She got dressed You get so alone I am brave I'm a scaredy-cat I am this And I am that I am skinny And I am fat You get so alone You're so alone You're not alone Take me home Don’t take me home The agony and The ecstasy You get so alone

I'm holding on But I'm not that strong I'm reaching out I'm screaming loud Can you hear me now? I can't find the words I'm a mental wreck That it just makes sense And the days run away over the hills Like wild horses And the days run away over the moon You sweat it out Fall over the edge You're puking your guts out But it never ceases The wind still blows You fire your bones I look into myself Sitting alone And the days run away over the hills Like wild horses And the days run away over the moon Jesus Christ Hurt like a knife Brains to the wall And that's what killed him Facing the sea Christ prays for me The devil's inside of you and said, "And the devil's inside of her, too" And the days run away over the hills Like wild horses And the days run away over the moon Run free Like wild horses And the days run away over the hills Like wild horses And the days run away over the moon

My Dear Cats 02:50
My water-colored hands are catless now Seated here alone in the dark My window-shaped head is bowed with sad draperies I am catless near death almost I miss my dear cats Behind me my last cat hanging on the wall Dead of my hand drink bloated And on all my other walls from attic to cellar My sad life of cats hangs I miss my dear cats

[I’ll dry your tears] You lie about your love [I’ll dry your tears] Hero and fool [I’ll dry your tears] Mad and sane [I’ll dry your tears] Lost and found Love is nothing without loss I feel so alone I have no privacy Without faith, I am nothing Willing to do what's hard If you don’t risk anything You risk even more I never said most things Can I talk to you? So much I wanted to say So many are lonely So many are lonely alone So many are lonely alone So many are lonely alone So many are lonely alone

Weep 04:21
Look around the streets Angels & prophets weep Look around the world Teeth are on edge Help the world For the sake Of all our children Made to bleed I've been dead for years [But] Life is so beautiful There's nothing you can do for me Help the world For the sake Of all our children Help the world For the sake Of all our children The nigger we are Get through it clean Turn the tide For the sake Of all our children Help the world For the sake Of all our children

Lucy’s in the sky with diamonds [Bob] Dylan’s got the David Bowie blues Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Give the devil back his shoes The times they are a-changin' God didn’t save the queen It's only Rock n Roll, my dear Under the Tahitian moon Sing this song together On with the show I'm pledging my time Time to go Just like a woman I shall be free Everybody’s got something to hide God only knows that's not me Put another brick inside the wall It’s been one of those days Sing this song together On with the show I'm pledging my time Time to go [Watch the show] Just like a woman I shall be free Lucy’s in the sky with diamonds Bob Dylan’s got the David Bowie blues Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Give the devil back his shoes

It takes courage to love me It takes courage to care It takes courage to confront Your weaknesses you share The victim of the flames I'm speakin' as a potential victim The burning of the witch The nigger, the jew, and the faggot too The blood-stained self The violence on our TV Is far more dangerous than pornography How much longer could she take The beatings and the rape As much truth as one can bear The evils in the world Then a little more Which has panic at the root We all live in a world Where dreams betray and are betrayed Where love dies, and innocence must die The awful question of wether or not all our dreams have failed How we managed to become what we have This inexpressible pain So desperate so empty What are we to do about it? This present chaos The terror and the bombings Holding our breath underwater And this song's an act of love

Up in the mountains, awfully shy and meek She dresses in the dark, laid up for about a week A chorus girl with outskirts, gonna run her crazy Way down in No Man’s Land, she shines not the less She didn’t know how to tell the secret that she knew She didn’t know how to tell the secret that she knew Up in the eastern sky in upward flight The rain came pouring down on her last fleeting breath And shivered where the cold wind blew, she watched the rain all day Found the sweet sunshine at last, but she left in the rain anyway She didn’t know how to tell the secret that she knew The secret that she knew She didn’t know how to tell the secret that she knew And she didn’t know how to tell the secret that she knew And she didn’t know how to tell the secret that she knew And she didn’t know how to tell the secret that she knew The secret that she knew

Young Girl 03:57
Young girl It's morning in the March wind Young girl Move slowly Day by day on these streets Young girl In the sun light in e v e r y breeze Young girl Cried out at midnight Into the silence out of the thick pine [solo] Young girl I can feel you breathin' inside these sheets Young girl You're so beautiful In your empty blouse with your perfect breasts Young girl Cried out at midnight Into the silence out of the thick pines Young girl I see myself I have survived Young girl I'm writing this poem especially for you When i dream of you Young girl

Christmas Eve on the countryside The whole family would get together Pigs were roasting, bottles of wine The party’s merrymaking Christmas Eve on the countryside Tirelessly writing love letters Into the woods, tired and broken We are all so fragile Christmas Eve on the countryside Fall like soft raindrops I waited for years, in vain to know Like the folks on Hitler’s burial Christmas Eve on the countryside You could always make love again The cracks in the mirror, I've loved those rooms It was the best time of my life Christmas Eve on the countryside Christmas Eve on the countryside Christmas Eve on the countryside Christmas Eve on the countryside Do do do do, do do do do do Do do do do, do do do do do La la la la, la la la la la La la la la, la la la la la Christmas Eve on the countryside Christmas Eve on the countryside
