Track Name: Animal Eyes
My eyes are spending the night with you,
My eyes are swimming with you…
When it’s cold, wind is blowin’
In front of the fire…

My eyes are finding you home again…
My hands are spending the night with you…

When it’s cold, wind is blowin’
In front of the fire…
Like a dragonfly,
Sharpen your knives…

When it’s cold, wind is blowin’
In front of the fire…
Like a dragonfly,
You’ve got animal eyes…
Track Name: Ragtime Sighs
She kills the things that she loves
Woman sing, rivers flow
Something creeps in a drizzle
Stomp a bug, and bled them

Lost my cherry, we ate meat
Lady Luck, like a sweet song
Down the road, backwoods on fire
Butterflies blowin' pines
Sounds like home

Your ragtime sighs in the rain
Blood on the table
Not a soul is awake - long ways want to breathe
You keep an eye

Lost my cherry, we ate meat
Lady Luck, like a sweet song
Down the road, backwoods on fire
Butterflies blowin' pines
Sounds like home

All love slip out
Deep in the city
Spoon out the dead
Broken in the valley

She kills the things that she loves
Woman sing, rivers flow
Something creeps in a drizzle
Stomp a bug, and bled them

Lost my cherry, we ate meat
Lady Luck, like a sweet song
Down the road, backwoods on fire
Butterflies blowin' pines
Sounds like home

(Your ragtime sighs)
(Your ragtime sighs)
Track Name: Subterranean
He took her in his arms…

The tide comes
The blood goes
Wish, O wish I
Heart cut out

I’ll get down on my knees…. (He took her in his arms…)

Breath and body
Take from you
Flower of sorrows
Nobody knows

Nobody knows... (somebody like you)

I’ll get down on my knees…. (He took her in his arms…)

Wind is blowing
Odor of rum
To the living
Wide open arms

The tide comes
The blood goes
Wish, O wish I

Nobody knows…
Track Name: In a Circle
I’ve got lovers
I’ve got suicide
I’ve got agony for you
For you, for you, for you, for you
I got what I wanted

I got madness
I got peace and death
Got no politics for you
For you, for you, for you, for you
I got what I needed

Sucking through straws
You see more and more
Hit all my friends
In the head
Gotcha by the tongue
Hunt em' down, run run
Somebody to Love?
Do you still want me?
Are you waiting for me?

I’ve got lovers
I’ve got suicide
I’ve got agony for you
For you, for you, for you, for you
I got what I wanted
Track Name: One Smile
Flashing minnows
In a pond
Such things disappear
Longing to see again

Our hearts in a dream
Slip behind a cloud
Lay awake, think about it
If I got lost along the way

Out into the streets
Kicking my way through
Under a pile of wet leaves
Moving through the days
Am I still in real time?

Through our nights
Winter sees the snow
She claimed the tide
I wanted his eyes

Heart in the fire
For just one smile
And ruined mascara
Sleep with you
Drown in your mirror

Cross my heart
Hope to die
Kicking my way through
Under a pile of wet leaves
Moving through the night
Am I still in real time?

Be with you…
Track Name: No Connection
No connection to the words
I am singing for what it’s worth
All my senses are aware
All my love I want to share

I try & I try feel nothing at all
I'm writing my lines painting a song
Why am I so hard on myself?

Chasing a creative mind
Every thought romanticized
All I ever wish to share
Genuine love n genuine care

I try & I try feel nothing at all
I’m writing my lines painting a song
I try & I try feel nothing at all
Why am I so hard on myself?

I love the morn
I love the sunrise
I love to wake
As much as I
I love the morn
I love the sunrise
I love to wake
As much as I
I love the morn
I love the sunrise
I love to wake
As much as I

Try & I try feel nothing at all
Writing a line painting a song
I try & I try feel nothing at all
Why am I here why do I fall
I try & I try feel nothing at all
Writing a line painting a song
I try & I try feel nothing at all

Why am I so hard on myself
Track Name: Ode to Jasper
Wind turning the night
Hold me so tight
Tears fill your eyes
You try not to cry

We got so much to talk about

Your body next to mine
It sure feels right
I look down in his eyes
Sing you a lullaby

We got so much to talk about
Have some coffee now

Follow your heart
Been walking the road
Journey through the skies
Long night in your eyes

We got so much to talk about
Have some coffee now
We got so much to talk about
Lay your body next to mine

(Oooooh Jasper)
Track Name: Sea of Stars
Basket of flowers
Dressed in black
Whisper in the winds
Into the sun

Bandage the wounded
We held our breath
Fly the night away
Things will be okay

Million reasons to cry
When you go
By the light of the stars
The sea of stars

I’ll stand by you
Watch over you
Who is putting fear into your hearts?

Down in my eyes
Watches me die

Who is putting fear into your hearts?
Fly the night away
Things will be okay

Who is putting fear into your hearts?

Basket of flowers
Dressed in black

Who is putting fear into your hearts?

By the light of the stars
The sea of stars

Who is putting fear into your hearts?

By the light of the stars
The sea of stars
