Track Name: Goodbye
Cold and dark the insect lamps
My head hot
In Tranquility

You walk away and I chase
My feet slip
From beneath me

And my soul says goodbye

Cast the dice and crawl fast
I'm looking for
The release

Talk to me of slippin' dreams
And how we got here
Silently

And my heart waves goodbye
Track Name: City
Left alone
In unfriendly city
No one anxious but me
To take life by the horns
And to not resent
The sins of mother and father and son
I laugh alone with guitar in hand
And hope that
Maybe tomorrow I can
Find some like-minded friends

I stare outside at the ever cooling
Season
And drink some liquids
Warmer than my insides
Warming my insides
And numbing the coldness that an outsider feels
Just before the silence is broken

Left alone
In unfriendly city
Everyone with a smile on their face
But fear in their eyes
That someone may ask a question
Talk for awhile
I wonder when this global village
Will act more like one
And people will want to know the person
And not just their business

Soles on pavement
Souls in limbo
Afraid to take that first step
And wonder why that boy acts like girl
Girl like boy
Someone straighten out this mystery before us

Left alone
In unfriendly city
No one care to know my name
Or why I stalk the streets solo
And why I must block my ears from inane lies
That they tell each other when passing in aisles
And why sometimes alone is better
Than trying to be like everyone else
Track Name: Steel Town
Moved on down
From steel town
Urban sprawl
Wedged in downtown
but I remember
Days in the sun
In those days
Wanted outta town

Settled down
Learned foreign tongues
Searched for myself
When I was down
I always remembered
Where I'm from

In my blood
The steel town

Moved on down
From steel town
Sault Ste. Marie
Always in me
I always remember
Where I'm from

In my heart
The steel town
Track Name: Green Warriors
Waiting, watching, for the answer
Buying, consuming hoping and praying

Taking, burning, starving and raping
Heart aching, hearing babies crying

Lightening strikes my heart in fear
The sky darkens an exhale
We are all green warriors
And my eyes enliven

The sky is breaking, I am growing
I'm not taking, the road is ending

Lightening strikes my heart in fear
The sky darkens an exhale
We are all green warriors
And my eyes enliven
Track Name: Stones
In my house made of glass
I choose my stones carefully
With your venomous words
I can't frighten to spite me

In my dreams black and white
I give up and I buckle
With a cup of your nectar
I squeeze on the throttle

And I wonder
What river your stones come from
And I wonder
What house they are thrown from

Now I'm kicking through the water
Pick up stones from my feet
If I saw your reflection
I'm an expert in deceit

And I wonder
What river your stones come from
And I wonder
What house they are thrown from
Track Name: Inside You
I took a drink and the night bloomed
I thought for a moment I could see through you

The night dripped like honey down my leg
I thought for a moment I could see through you

Your frame through the dark cut to my hands
I thought for a moment I could see through you

It was the night's pleasure never planned
And for a moment I was inside you
Track Name: Wouldn't Do Us Any Good
When I was just a boy
The sweet sound of cockatoos
Lies on his lips
So sweet, so sweet

When I was just a young man
Sound of city rushing
Eyes took the truth
Gave blame, gave blame

I could blame you for years
Wouldn't do us any good

Open window
What's that I spy
Opportunity
Always on the rise

I could give you all my tears
Would't do me any good
Track Name: Storm Clouds
The Storm clouds gather above
The edge of Gitchee Gumee
You stood on the edge of the sea
Toss in a stone and think of me

The salt lapped at your feet
I stood in the water of the bay
You looked at the edge of the world
I knew I had to stay

My boy, my boy I wish it were my arms
My boy, my boy your ran to in the night

The storm clouds gather above
I saw your eyes in the waves
I blew a kiss into the wind
Hoping it would be me you'd taste

My boy, my boy I wish it were my arms
My boy, my boy you ran to in the night

The storm clouds gather above
Sky painted blacks and reds
I saw your eyes in the waves
And I can never leave this place
Track Name: Broken Halo
Broken halo
I fell from your sky
No longer held up by your dreams
By you and I

Broken Halo
I died a little inside
No longer running away
So you're pacified

I tried my best
No I wouldn't change a thing
We ran our course just like a river
Now we're moving to the sea

Broken halo
So many nights I cried
Asking forgiveness
For all the things I tried

I tried my best
No I wouldn't change a thing
We ran our course just like a river
Now we're moving to the sea
Track Name: All My Everything
All my everything

Secret treasure
Take the key
And open up all of me

Take away my pain
I'm waiting in vain
Look my way
They all want a piece of me

All my everything

You are beautiful
My sandalwood
Come open up all of me

Take away my pain
I'm waiting in vain
Look my way
They all want a piece of me

All my everything
Track Name: The Garden of Earthly Delights
Took a trip to the devil's home
Thought I would check it out for myself
Took a trip to the devil's home
And I said I can do this if I have to

Took a trip to the saviour's home
Made my way myself to that righteous cloud
Took a trip to the saviour's home
And I said I can do this if I have to

Woke in the garden of earthly delights
Found it was where the fruit was most ripe
Woke in the garden of earthly delights
And I said I can do this if I have to
Track Name: Little One
There was a time I believed in god
I read the book and ate the bread
Once upon a time I was a little boy
I believed the words they told me blind

There was a time I felt love
Wriggling away from their hands
I believed the words told to me
It doesn't mean I ever felt anything for them

Oh little one come here
Let me hold you, like they never did
Oh little one
Oh little one

Once upon a time there was a little boy
He ran through the forest floor alone
Once upon a time there was a little boy
Ran through the woods away from home

Oh little one come here
Let me hold you, like they never did
Oh little one
Oh little one
Track Name: Surprise
Once again playing the fool
And again the sand falls
In my eyes

Surprise

Trying hard to figure out
Just what's so unlovable
Relinquished spirit

Inside

Hands warmed in my pocket
Collar's upturned
The air tastes cold today
My heavy heart's feeling old

I've reached the point
Soon enough I'll forget again
And lay my soul on the block

Surprise
Track Name: The End
Softly, lonely
Desperate, forgotten
I found you

Broken, sore
Lost in my madness
I trusted you

And lately, I feel myself falling down

And decorate, navigate
Lost in my
Tumultuous dream

Could plant a seed
Take a bath
Wash away all the hurt in me

And lately, I find myself lost again

Softly, lonely
Desperate, forgotten
I found you

And lately, I beg for the end
