Track Name: All Life Long
ALL LIFE LONG

Just flip the switch and you will see
It's carved into your family tree
Tip your hat and bend a knee
Taking it all life long

I like myself when I'm a Human being 
Spent so much time as something in between
Tough to swallow all these ways and means
Living it all life long

Hey hey hey a
O o o a
Hey hey hey a
Living it all life long

A few cards short so just change the game
Creatures runnin round without a name 
There is no God who'll take the blame
Living it all life long

It's written on the walls this way
But it shouldn't dictate the way you play
Give a little more than what you pay
(Scared of being castaway)
Living it all life long

Hey hey hey a
O o o a
Hey hey hey a

O o o a
Hey hey hey a
O o o a
Living it all life long

Heaven knows what you'll need
When to hunt or when to leave
Heart of gold or heart of stone
Open that door or you're alone

If your heart is light
You're in the game
Playing it all life long

Your bold and loving all the same
Just open your jaws & let it reign
Ooooooo oooo oooh oh oh
Living it all life long

I'm listening for you when you howl
Through each other's eyes I see it all
I'm right beside you if you fall-a-a-all
Living it all life long

Track Name: Rooftops
ROOFTOPS

Grabbed my honey from the circus
The cook coughing down the surface street
His finger pointing upwards
My eyes follow and what do they meet?

Could this be?
--Aint no way
Not to me
--Not today

Pillows flying from the rooftops
Flames licking the naive sky
Jumping cross from rooftop to rooftop--up so high
Up so high
Up so high
Up so high upon the rooftops
Up so high trapped up on the rooftop

Bridge:
Somehow inside I feel that it's all right
Aint no point in getting uptight, no
It's no question that it is out of control
But rather can I still grow satisfied

Up so high,
Up so high
Up so high up on this rooftop
Up so high, Trapped on this burning roof
Up so high, the heat just rise
Up so high,
Up so high
Up so high,
Up so high, out here on this burning roof
Up so high,
Up so high,
Up so high,
Up so high, stranded on this roof

Could this be?
Ain't no way
Not to me
Not today...

Up here on the rooftop
Bird's eye view
I just can't escape, no
The way they do
Up so high
Up so high,
Up so high,
Up so high, out here on this burning roof
Up so high, no place to go
Up so high,
Up so high,
Up so high, stranded on the rooftop
Track Name: Guessing Game
GUESSING GAME

What's the deal?
Cut you in?
Starting to feel
Confused again?

My eyes might look easy
Behind them my head's a mess
I just can't appease you, baby
With this on my chest

I know it's wrong but I feel I'm out here all alone
With static in my mind

I dont know why I keep you here inside this--guessing game
I dont know what to do I dont know why I'm--guessing again
I dont know why I keep you here inside this--guessing game
Oh oh oh o oh, I don't even want to play

No big deal
You say go on & choose
What terrifies me (for real) is
I see Everything win or lose

I know it's selfish but I feel I'm out here all alone
With static frying-- my-mind

I dont know why I keep you here inside this--guessing game
I dont know what to do I dont know why I'm--guessing again
I dont know why I keep you here inside this--guessing game
Oh oh oh o oh, I don't even want to play
2x: You're perfecting patience
How do you survive?
So many choices & consequences
It's hard to stay alive

Bridge:
2nd: Then the static fades not a sound
Out of nowhere my eyes grow round
Suddenly It all becomes so clear
It's just not what I want to hear

I dont know why I keep you here inside this--guessing game
I dont know what to do I dont know why I'm--guessing again
I dont know why I keep you here inside this--guessing game
Oh oh oh o oh, I don't even want to play
Track Name: Crime Scene
CRIME SCENE

Broke into my dreams and started a chase
Reading maps on each other's face
Eloquent lines lead us to a place where
The two of us come all unlaced

A day-after huddle a pile of smoke
Unloaded questions framed as jokes
Cherry gloss post production frost gone lifeless clothes spread across the lawn
Love jumps into another dawn

Refrain:
Under fading halos of the night sky
Turn this love scene into a crime
Tangled bodies in chalk dust lines
Turn this love scene into a crime

The con is on and a blinded view
Telepathic eyes stare right through you
Psychotic lines whites lies burn
Criminal minds they start to turn

Embarassed and harassed then let be
A nasty exchange at half past three
Witnessed by no one but you me
Our vacated hearts and our dying pleas

Love rings up another casualty

Refrain

Stranded in the storm
An abandoned morning
We killed our story

Refrain
Track Name: Fading Days
FADING DAYS

So much, so much, so much
Rain (4x)

The promise in your whispering
Turned my head
All summer we're worshipping
Raising the dead
Your predictions came to be
And all this lead
To so much more than you and me
Like you said
W/ showers pouring down
Out of our heads
We can stand our ground
Time & again

Refrain:
And it all just seems so sane
Standing out here in the rain
I just wanted to
remind you of all the things you do
I just need to say without your love
They're all just fading days

So much, so much, so much rain (2x)

We revive every dying dream
By now our hearts are trampolines
If all there is is love and fear
Then don't believe in (all you hear) fear my dear
Anymore
Fear's just the long shadow of love's (open) Darkest door
That we walk in & out of
(Time & again) Once & for all

Bridge:
People have a way of becoming who you say they are
You have always praised me
Raised me
I wish I could say the same

Refrain: (2x)
Track Name: Wind-up Doll
WIND-UP DOLL

Do you want to come?
Did you bring your key?
Is the door in the place where you left it?
Are you still expecting me?

(Instr turnaround)

Rivers run in reverse
(The dollhouse is on the verge)
We can flip the scales
(You can flip the scales)
Hanging on every word like a lover
Chasing each others tales

(Instr turnaround)

Bridge: 1x instr
Dust doesn't settle in one place too long
Cast in your shadow I'm your wind-up doll

Wind me up I'm yours
Please insert key and turn
I might not stay right where you want me
(I've) ' still got a lot to unlearn (I still got a lot to learn)

Breakdown:  (2x instr)

3rd phrase:  I must not know what I'm saying
Do you know what I'm saying? (2x)
I must not know what I'm saying...
Aaaaaaaaah!


Bridge:  Dust doesn't settle in one place too long
Cast in your shadow I'm your wind-up doll
Our lives are in each others hands with every turn
Control your keeper and we both get burned

Bridge outro:
I am you
& you are me
& You & I are not what we do not want to be (2x)
Oooh -ooh-eee-oh oh
Track Name: Candied People
CANDIED PEOPLE

 
Oh-Oh Candied People
You make the world seem so sweet
Treating each other right
Saying all the right things
Sweetening dreams oh Candied people
 
Ref:
Oh so sweet
Candied People
Don't crack your teeth on
Candied people
 
FIll the dish one size fits all
It all tastes so good with a little bit of sugar now
You say there's no need to pay today-ay-ay
Making everybody feel just right, and knowing just how
 
Bridge:
But there's a bitter taste
In your mouth these days
& Lost your candor now-ow-a-a-ow
Is too much of a good thing
Truly a good thing?
 
There is a lot of stress
Placed onto this
Hard shell (of yours) oh-oh-oh
It's a soft inside
You're trying to hide
 
Refrain

Track Name: Cooking in Your Kitchen
COOKIN' IN YOUR KITCHEN

Ooooh sweet mama
Oh mama what you keep making me work so hard
And oh my baby I'm gonna pick all the spices in your yard
And if you'll let me what I whip up a dish that'll make your decision easy
There will be a day you will come my way

Cookin' in your kitchen
I whip up the dish you want

If I can't see you each and every day I'll die trying along the way
If I can't reach you each and everyday I'll die trying along the way
Track Name: Crowded Universe, Nothing Ever Really Waits, Ashes
CROWDED UNIVERSE

A crowded universe 
In crosshairs wired tight
Mismatching his and hers
Bounce between the satellites

A stake right through the start
A spike in oiled grins
A pale vampiric heart
Catelogue mail order sins

I know just what to buy 
I'm fed just what to eat
Find nothing in a loss
Thoroughbred just to compete

You say just what you mean
Take things for what they are
You head is full of steam
Your back is full of scars

Trying to change your mind I lost mine 2x

I never make mistakes
I always step on toes
I never hit the breaks
Always have a bloody nose

You stand where rainbows land 
You spot where devils hide
You bite the slight of hand
And strap in for the ride

Assisted disappearance 
A picked just ripe prestige
The ache of my coherence 
A skirt around the knees

A subatomic dance
A fire drill red hurse
A planet in a trance
A crowded universe

Trying to change your mind
I lost mine 4x

NOTHING EVER REALLY WAITS

Nothing ever really waits (8x)?

Trying to change your mind
I lost mine (4x)?

ASHES

All these years and no one home 
Say, where do I drop my bags (baggage) 
All these years spent to become
Something I already managed

All these years and no one home
Just in time to drop the act
Lead the way I need someone
To show me where to ash

All these years and no one home
Wonderful to have the chance
What's in my heart ain't breaking news
Just love until we're ashes
