Track Name: Please Please
Gather around - again.
Let’s not be - alone.
Empty our cups, then fill them. Up.
With something more like home.
What have we got to give
Only our honest word.
Speaking of, truth and. Love.
Unless your less is heard.

Please please set us. Free.
We’re fighting to be please. Please.
Please please set us. Free.
We’re fighting to be please. Please.

Gather around - again.
Blessed be the - poor.
Empty our cups, then fill them. Up.
Unless your less is more.
Track Name: Made For Another
What am I to do?
Caught between a rock and someplace
I don't want to be
So save some sympathy for me
up above it all
it’s lonely here
No way to win nowhere to go
With all that my head spins
cuz I was made for you
but you were made for another
yeah I was made for you
but you were made for another

How could this be true?
So sure of myself now
now I stand in disbelief
Feelin’ like this world is just a thief
It's all too clear
I’ll never find a way out
Never find a way to overcome
the chains that bind me here
cuz I was made for you
but you were made for another
yeah I was made for you
but you were made for another
yeah you were made for another
yeah you were made for another
well you were made for another
Track Name: Something New
When you were a girl - And I was a boy
And the tiniest thing - Brought the giantest joy
That’s the way - I wish things still were
Today

I wanted the rain - To lessen the pain
The look on your face - To make me insane
I wanted the night - To be bursting with a billion
Lights - I guess not

Lying in my bed at night
Lying on my back
The ceiling seems so selfish now
I don’t know

What’s happening now - Was happening then
It happened before - And it’ll happen again
I’m waiting to see - If something new will happen
To me - I guess not

Lying in my bed at night, Lying on my back
The ceiling seems so selfish now, I don’t know - I don’t know
Lying through your teeth to me
Well I can lie right back
A smile don’t mean much to me
Anymore - Anymore
A smile don’t mean much to me
Anymore
A smile don’t mean much to me
Anymore
Track Name: Speak Only Truth
I speak only truth
Create only love
Wish I hadn’t created the mote between us
Between us.
‘f I speak only truth
And create only love
Then I hope you’ll forgive me for what
I have done.
Just look me in the eyes again
Like you did when we were friends
Before our tools were all laid out
Before we thought to shout

I’ll think only truth, Be only love
I’ll think of the days when we were one
I thought I’d won.
(But) The baby’s with you; (And) She shines like the sun
Can’t help thinking back to when we were young
So fun.
Just sit beside me once again
Like you did when we were friends
Before we split our worlds apart
Divided up our art

I’ll speak only truth, Be only love
Wish I hadn’t created the mote between us
Between us.
Track Name: To Bring It Back
What would I do for love?
To bring it back to what it was?
What would I do for you?
What should I think? What should I do?
I feel a world of disconnection
I need to right the ship
At least we face the same direction
I need to right the ship
What do I see in this?
I see all the things that I would miss
What do I have to say
To bring it back to yesterday?
Track Name: The Same Weight As Worms
You seem to care about
Me and you /and all the things we do, but
I don’t really care about you, baby
I don’t really care about you, girl
I don’t really care about you, baby
It’s the same weight as worms

You seem to think deeply
About things and how they fit into your dream - But
I don’t really care about you, baby
I don’t really care about you, girl
I don’t really care about you, baby
It’s the same weight as worms

Well I try to be gentle and kind
It’s not about me
It’s about the pride
That she seems to hold within
Her love of she and contempt of me
Well, I don’t really care about you, baby
I don’t really care about you, girl
I don’t really care about you, baby
It’s the same weight as worms
Track Name: Thee World
your world won't be thee world
my world won't be thee world
solitude. grey and sweaty. i fight and hit. I'm alone.
your world won't be - thee world
my world won't be - thee world
and if you wanna be like this you can be like this
anything can end up being anything
and if you think the tears you shed can make the plants grow tall and strong
i must admit the same thought crossed my mind
pretty soon we’ll head to bed
you to yours and i to mine
i dream of drifting down the hall
and landing right there by your side
your world won't be thee world
my world won't be thee world
your world won't be thee world
no world can be thee world
Track Name: My Time Her Part (FREE SONG)
(Well) I’ve been doing my time
(And) She’s been doing her part
She says she don’t really like me
Just likes the taste of my heart
Now I’m not really sure
‘bout having women around
They’re everywhere that I turn
I gotta leave this town
(Well) I’ve been looking inside
Tryin’ to find what’s right
She says it don’t really matter much
The world will always be bright
It’s clearly not about me
And it’s not about you
We all live in our dreams
There’s not too much we can do
(Well) I’ve been doing my time
(And) She’s been doing her part
She says she don’t really like me
Just likes the taste of my heart
She says she don’t really like me
Just likes the taste of my heart
Track Name: Clarify
They wanted to go and make peace.
Show all the life that they’d seen.
Draw some symbols, keep it so low that it bends.
You oughta know what that means.

Dinner and drinks for unhealthy friends.
Shit for a shirt and a roof over head.
Hug a thug and a dying friend until it ends.
You oughta know - what that means.

Come clarify the meaning of this.
Tired of what ? What did I miss?
Your side, my side. Inside, outside. Share my dreams.
You oughta know what that means.
Track Name: Can't You Sit?
Can’t you sit on my lap like she sits on yours?
Very still. Very still. Drip drip. My pores.
I can’t believe I said what I said
It’s so not me
I know - you know

Can’t you sit very still bare feet on the floor?
Just pretend. Close your eyes. Show mercy. End the war.
I can’t believe we bury our dead
It’s so not me
I know - you know
Track Name: '92
One night in ‘92
Before I knew I’d spend my life with you
Jumped the gun
For a night of fun
I’d soon regret the night we spent
The one
Why couldn’t I have waited?
Why couldn’t I have waited?
When you think of ‘92
Do you regret the night we spent?
I do.
If we would’ve just slowed down
I’m sure it all would be the same by now
Why couldn’t I have waited?
Why couldn’t I have waited?
Track Name: In Her Bedroom
i hear you’re messing with the numbers
i hear you’re swinging like a storm
i hear they barely can contain you
call me up if you get warm
but if you’re gonna play that game (then)
you really should expect the fight
and if you’re gonna shout my name (then)
you’d better just pronounce it right
she’s goin’ to die alone in her bedroom
she’s goin’ to smile until the end

i see that everything’s in order
just the way it always is
they’ll beat me up, if i get closer
i’ll keep my pocket full of chips
but if we don’t remain the same (then)
you really should refresh your art
if seeing God remains your aim (then)
you really ought to clean your heart
she’s goin’ to die alone in her bedroom
she’s goin’ to smile until the end
Track Name: Likely To Rain
Outside, the sun is shining.
Inside, it’s likely to rain
I do my best, though my best is always changing.
Inside, it’s likely to rain
Keep your distance, keep the kid, keep your umbrella
Keep it open, keep the peace, you never know
Be the savior, be a beast, be Oklahoma
Be a man, be a friend, you never know
Outside, the sun is shining.
Inside, it’s likely to rain
Track Name: Something Left To Find
I went back to the rendezvous
I’m sure you’ll say I’m just wasting time
But I know
There's something left to find
I could see there were changes
I could not even recognize
But I know
There's something left behind

You stay behind and I'll follow you
Find my way back in a dream
I'll let the water return again
Then I'll be complete

Trees are standing there over me
like a sadness to justify
Now I know -
There's nothing left to find
How can it be still inside of me
when all I wanted is lost in time
Still I know -
There's something left to find
Track Name: Your Number-One Concern
I don’t wanna be your number one concern
The fire that stirs about her when she stirs
Have I warned you how despairing the moths are when they’re burned?
Those daring. Kind. Eyes. Should be more learned
So if you wanna let me go (you can just)
If you wanna let me go (go on and)
If you wanna let me go I’m sure
There’s another Troy for her to burn
Track Name: Both Free
I wanted to know that the girl that I love would be by my side til I die. So I looked to the sky and I asked of the Lord, "Please won’t you give me a sign?" Now I know the girl’s not for me. It’s clear I should set us both free.

But I sat and I thought and I doubted the Lord, cuz I know he’s been wrong in the past. Perhaps it is He who is not meant for me; and the girl is the one meant to last. Now maybe the Lord’s not for me. Perhaps I should set us both free.

As I sat alone with no girl and no Lord, I’d made the bed where I’d lie. Or as some might say, I have lived by the sword, and alone with my sword’s how I’ll die. The girl and the Lord aren’t for me. It’s time that I set them both free.
