WINGS

The way I'm on your mind, like a ball and chain
Like a destiny to run from
Division in your soul (in your soul), keepin' you from whole
I can bare to see you crying

The wing that lays on your shoulders
Could be the wings that carry you home

Sometimes you've got to die to be born again
Sometimes you've got to fight
Sometimes you've got to learn
Sometimes you've got to burn
The old brush out so the new can grow

The wing that lays on your shoulders
Could be the wings that carry you home
Yeah, come on

Could be the wings
Could be the wings (carry you home)
Could be the wings (oh)
Could be the wings (carry you home)

Like to long, lost friend?
Like to love, lost friend?
Like it too long, lost friend?

The wing that lays on your shoulders
Could be the wings that carry you home (carry you home)
Come on, come on

Could be the wings
Could be the wings (lord above)
Could be the wings (oh yeah)
Could be the wings (carry you home)
Could be the wings
Could be the wings (carry you home)
Could be the wings
Could be the wings (carry you home)


THE RIVER

It came without warning
A love like I ain't ever felt before
She's like my destiny calling
And she's laying there all naked on the floor
And suddenly, out of the blue she's singin'

Oh, baby, let my lovin' ease your pain
Bring your burnin' skin to my river once again
I'll give you life
Oh, baby, let my lovin' ease your pain tonight

She came without warning
Like an angel come from Heaven in the night
The kiss makes me tremble
So she pulls me close and she holds me oh so tight
Then suddenly, out of the blues she starts singin'

Oh, baby, let my lovin' ease your pain
Bring your burnin' skin to my river once again
I'll give you life
Oh, baby, let my lovin' ease your pain

I'll give you life

Oh, baby, let my lovin' ease your pain
Bring your burnin' skin to my river once again
I'll give you life
Oh, baby, let my lovin' ease your pain, yeah
Bring your burnin' skin to my river
Oh, to my river


WE DEAL IN DREAMS

Don't you feel so very pointless here
In the feelings of the rain
In The violence of the sun
I must confess that I feel graciously
To the God and the rain
And hotter than the sun
What do you do
What do you say
When the blood spill is of your loved one
And the kremlins of the world fall around you

We deal in dreams, yeah
We deal in dreams
We deal in structures that grow cold in our hearts

Oh fearful, crying people
The Fool is by the river
watching, but not swimming
It takes energy not to get used to it
Fall into this place
Where everything rolls together and dies
This quiet kingdom she is now,
Forever will she be, In silence of liberation

We deal in dreams, yeah
we deal in dreams
we deal in structures that grow cold in our hearts, yeah

we deal in dreams, yeah
we deal in dreams
we deal in structures that grow cold in our hearts
we deal in dreams
Structures that grow cold in our hearts, yeah
we deal in dreams
We deal in dreams, ah yes, ah yes, dreams
Structures that grow cold
Structures that grow cold
Structures that grow cold in our hearts

Don't you feel so very pointless here
In the feelings of the rain
In the violence of the sun


RUN AWAY

"Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
And you can hear it in my whispered cries for love
I need your blissful touch to carry me away again
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory, but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

"Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
I'm like a posse that's been ridin' for days
I've got the scars to prove that love has had its day and it's way with me
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

This ain't no night to be on your own
You've got to know where you're coming from
To know just where you're goin', lord
You've got to know where you're coming from
This ain't no night to be on your own

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care
I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care
Run away
Run away
Run away


HEAVEN

You don't need no friends
get back your faith again
you have the power to believe
another dissident
take back your evidence
it has no power to decieve

I'll believe it when I see it, for myself
I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive

I sit with them all night
everything they say is right
but in the morning they were wrong
I'll be right by your side
come hell or water high
down any road you choose to roam

I'll believe it when I see it for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive, yeah

darling, I believe, Oh Lord
sometimes it's hard to breathe, Lord
at the bottom of the sea, yeah yeah

I'll believe it when I see it for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I don't need no one
Ohhhh
I don't need no one
I don't need no one
I don't need no one
To tell me about heaven
I believe
I believe it, yeah

where we're always free to choose
never free enough to find
i wish something would break
cuz we're running out of time

and i am overcome, yeah

holy water in my lungs

These women in the street
pulling out their hair
my master's in the yard
giving light to the unaware

is just a step amongst the stairs

and i am overcome, yeah
i am overcome, baby
holy water in my lungs, yeah
i am overcome

so drive me out, yeah
out to that open field

but locking the gates of love

SIMPLE CREED

Born with your back to the god that
Spit you out on the riverbed
Hang with who? Me?
You better back up fool
I bet you took a gun to school too
But now nobody's taking your candy
You just keep on living this tragedy
Laladadadadada
To each his own ...

I wait for you to take my hand
Cos we need each other
We gotta love each other

Yeah
Born with your back to the god that
Picked you up by your puppy scruff
Hang with who? me?
You'd better back up fool
And be grateful that the river's always hiding from you
Now nobody's taking your bicycle
Maybe somebody should take your microphone
Lalaladadadada
To each his own ...

I wait for you to understand
That we need each other

Someone should take your microphone
Someone should leave their life alone
Try again, lie again
I don't make love ...

I wait for you to take my hand
Cos we need each other

Yeah
We gotta love, gotta love each other
We need each other
We gotta love each other
We gotta love, gotta love each other


THEY STOOD UP FOR LOVE

Naked lovers feel the blood beneath their veins
Electric nerves comunicate
With tiny explosions through our brains
Who is this energy that never left or came?
Give rise to passion the only glory
Of this human story
I give my heart and soul to the one

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Lookin' back to our birth, forward to our demise
Even scientists say, everything is just light
Not created, destroyed but eternally bright
Masters in everytime lord in every place
Those who stood up for love down in spite of the hate
In spite of the hate

Who put the flower in the barrel of that gun?
Who lit the candle, started the fire,
Burnt down the fortress, the throne?
Who could house all the refugees in a single shack
Or a lowly bungalow?
Who lives in a different dimension, free from the
Struggles we know?

I give my heart and soul to the one

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Lookin' back to our birth, forward to our demise
Even scientists say everything is just light
Not created, destroyed but eternally bright
Masters in everytime lord in every place
Those who stood up for love down in spite of the hate

We spend all of our lives goin? out of our minds
They live in the light
We made it to the moon
But we can't make it home
Waitin? on a rescue that never comes
Made it to the moon
But we can't make it home
Maybe home is where the heart is given up
To the one, to the one

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Lookin' back to our birth, forward to our demise
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds

They live, they

They stood up for love
Stood up for love
Stood up for love
They stood up for love
Stood up for love
Stood up for love

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Masters in everytime
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Stood up for love


RUN TO THE WATER

oh desert speak to my heart
oh woman of the earth
maker of children who weep for love
maker of this birth
'til your deepest secrets are known to me
I will not be moved
I will not be moved

"don't try to find the answer
when there ain't no question here
brother let your heart be wounded
and give no mercy to your fear"

adam and eve live down the street from me
babylon is every town
it's as crazy as it's ever been
love's a stranger all around

in a moment we lost our minds here
and lay our spirit down
today we lived a thousand years
all we have is now

run to the water
and find me there
burnt to the core but not broken
we'll cut through the madness
of these streets below the moon
these streets below the moon

and I will never leave you
'til we can say, "this world was just a dream
we were sleepin' now we are awake"
'til we can say

in a moment we lost our minds here
and dreamt the world was round
a million mile fall from grace
thank god we missed the ground

run to the water
and find me there
burnt to the core but not broken
we'll cut through the madness
of these streets below the moon
with a nuclear fire of love in our hearts

yeah, I can see it now lord
out beyond all the breakin' of waves
and the tribulation
it's a place and the home of ascended souls
who swam out there in love!

run to the water
and find me there
burnt to the core but not broken
we'll cut through the madness
of these streets below the moon
with a nuclear fire of love in our hearts
rest easy baby, rest easy
and recognize it all as light and rainbows
smashed to smithereens and be happy
run to the water (and find me there)
run to the water


THE DOLPHIN'S CRY

the way you're bathed in light
reminds me of that night
god laid me down into your rose garden of trust
and I was swept away
with nothin' left to say
some helpless fool
yeah I was lost in a swoon of peace
you're all I need to find
so when the time is right
come to me sweetly, come to me
come to me

love will lead us, alright
love will lead us, she will lead us
can you hear the dolphin's cry?
see the road rise up to meet us
it's in the air we breathe tonight
love will lead us, she will lead us

oh yeah, we meet again
it's like we never left
time in between was just a dream
did we leave this place?
this crazy fog surrounds me
you wrap your legs around me
all I can do to try and breathe
let me breathe so that I
so we can go together!

love will lead us, alright
love will lead us, she will lead us
can you hear the dolphin's cry?
see the road rise up to meet us
it's in the air we breathe tonight
love will lead us, she will lead us

life is like a shooting star
it don't matter who you are
if you only run for cover, it's just a waste of time
we are lost 'til we are found
this phoenix rises up from the ground
and all these wars are over

over
over
singin' la da da, da da da
over
come to me
singin' la da da da, da da da
come to me


I ALONE

It's easier not to be wise.
And measure those things by your brains.
I sank into Eden with you.
Alone in the church by and by.

I'll read to you here, save your eyes.
You'll need them, your boat is at sea.
Your anchor is up, you've been swept away.
And the greatest of teachers won't hesitate To leave you there, by yourself.
Chained to fate.

CHORUS

I alone love you.
I alone tempt you.
I alone love you.
Fear is not the end.
I alone love you.
I alone tempt you.
I alone love you.
Fear is not the end of this!.

It's easier not to be great.
And measure those things by your eyes.
We long to be here by his resolve.
Alone in the church by and by.
To cradle the baby in space.
And leave you there by yourself chained to fate.

CHORUS

Oh, now we took it back too far.
Only love can save us now, all these riddles that you burn.
All come runnin' back to you, all these rhythms that you hide.
Only love can save us now, all those riddles that you burn.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.


SELLING THE DRAMA

And to love a god.
And to fear a flame.
And to burn a crowd that has a name.

And to right or wrong.
And to meek or strong.
It is known, just scream it from the wall.

CHORUS

I've willed, I've walked, I've read.
I've talked, I know, I know.
I've been here before.
Hey, now we won't be raped.
Hey, now we won't be scarred like that.

It's the sun that burns.
It's the wheel that turns.
It's the way we sing that makes them dream.
And to Christ a cross.
And to me a chair.
I will sit and earn the ransom from up here.

CHORUS

And to love a god.
And to fear a flame.
And to burn a crowd that has a name.

CHORUS
