Track Name: Autumn is A Promise
"Don't let it out" they might say
"Your work should never look like your play"
Then I feel I must convey: I ain't worked a day
I've never worked a day

So I'll pray I'll earn my keep
and that this Autumn is but a promise for spring

So "I'm sorry" They might say
"Well, your passion won't pay nor will your do-goodings.
So just make it with what we have made
to keep your darkness at bay just put your dreams away"

But I want to
play
and put my best parts
in the game

and you'll pray I'll earn my keep
But tomorrow it is , Oh yes tomorrow is

Not yesterday. Oh yes, and Tomorrrow is. Not. Yesterday.

So I'll let it out and I will say:
"Well my passion will pay
If I know my do goodings
and I'll make it with what I am made
To keep my nightmares away
I won't tuck my dreams away"

and you'll pray I'll earn my keep

but Autumn is but
a promise for spring
Track Name: Parapluie
Parapluie for Andrew

And in the rain
My silent retreat
When I'm beautifully alone
and then suddenly

Parapluie under you I cannot see
the penance in the rain, I think its mine to tame

(You may think it absurd
that I speak every word
as though I am
who I once wanted to be
but thats just me)

Why not enjoy the rain
and just join the birds
just look at the clouds
like the truth has been heard
Just not in words
The rain has always heard

So, I guess what I want to know, is if you need it so
without your umbrella could you survive the rain?
Or would it drive you insane?

Well, Parapluie
Under you I cannot feel
the penance in the rain
I think its mine to tame

So just share your shames,
even Utter the word
and just say it aloud
'cause its always been heard
Just take my cure
The truth should n'vr be blurred

I guess what I want to know, if it suits/serves you so
Without your discretions would you be the same?
Or are you just tame

Parapluie
Without you I can feel
the penance in the rain
I know it is mine to claim
Track Name: King's Call
Far from my soul I realize
I have sinned
To keep you for myself would make me a bad friend
But I want you to know
You make your own home

To my sides I see the men
who could do anything
But they won't heed the command
or chase their destiny.
But be yee not afraid
your yer own master
and your own
slave

Secret of soul I devise
to set you free
You may not know what I am
Just be glad I'm me
But I can be with no man
who won't be a king when he can
this king's call is for you
this kings call is for you

So I will go my own way
and you can't follow
I will go my own way
and be not afraid
for this is my place


Secret of souls we devise
to set us free
and help unbind the lies
which define our everythings
for I can be with no man
who won't take his thrown
or help his own
hands
this kings call is for you
this king's call is for you

But be yee not afraid
for we are all the gods made.

You will go your way
and I may follow
You will go your way
and be not afraid
for this is your place
This king's call is for you
this kings call is for you.
Track Name: Milieu
I have been a lone wolf for some time
For a time For a time
But now tire of no one
Knowing my body or my
Mind
I have been suspicious of those who
Thought I was a find
But I can share a moment with you
for we are of the same kind
(I can only share my moments
With someone I admire)

Well lust can be healing
If you know what you do
If I gave you a moment
Would you learn from this milieu

Could we act with love
So I can lend you all my care
Could we act with love
Even if it goes no where

Don't let me say
This ain't a thing
I want to celebrate your worth because I know you are a king
Even if it's a fling

But Lust can be hurting
If hearts aren't true
If we shared in this moment
Do you promise to be you?

Because In acts of love
I cannot hide all that I am
Because in acts with love you can't hide
Though you fear you can
Though I fear you can

So if you touch you'll teach me
You may shape me but you can't break this
I can only learn from you
In this milieu
(Thank you Thank you Thank you)
Track Name: Lazy Bones
Not to say I won't obey
if destiny came to me
I am not blind
but I've trouble seeing
I am not blind but I've troubles

Not to say I won't obey
if destiny came to me
I am not blind
but I've troubles seeing
I am not blind
But sometimes I'm just lazy

I have come to know
that I am lazy boned
too afraid to swim 'cause I'd see
exactly how far we might sink

But its funny that we
are surprised when things
don't go as we planned
Like we'd played the best hand

But its hard to see
what your life would be
if things went as we planned
You can't play the best


I have come to know
that I don't want to be known
too afraid to stand or I'd see
Exactly where I might lead

but its funny that we are surprised when things don't go as we planned
you can play the best hand
Its hard to see what your life would be if you would just take a stand
and tried the best you can


And we're just lazy boned and we don't want it to be known
Lazy Bones. LazyBones.

Not to say I won't obey
if destiny came to me
I am not blind
but I've trouble seeing
I am not blind but I've troubles

I have come to know
That I am lazy boned
--------------------------------------------
Track Name: Smoke
He races time and his pulse at night
and raises his glass to the witness
Petticoat tears for a cigarette smile
and a laugh
that says "I will never hold you down"
No, I will never hold you down

and so he waits
and so he waits
Loved.

I see smoke in your eyes
I see smoke in your eyes

Now he's Zippering words like railroad ties
with his wishes and wishes and lullabies
oh, cover your skin in city lies
The walls are thin, won't you sing again?

He let go
He let go
we let go
Loved

I see smoke in your eyes, I see smoke in your eyes
Pretty one.
Track Name: Your good heart
Why must I always be unmade?
It seems as soon as I stand the roof caves
wish my good heart would keep me sane

Give it your all
or so they say
but I gave it all now I've nothing to claim
Don't feel worse but I don't feel the same

Here we stand the widows of fate
but not of grace
Soon of this, we will be made
and that is our true strength

I am always being remade
my good heart will keep me sane
for I know from where I came
And that is my true strength
Track Name: Carry your Home
Oh conduits
I can't do this on my own
Oh conduits
I can't do this on my own

But if the frost blackens all of your toes
your fingers froze
have no fear
we can warm you here
with our open arms
you can feel the warmth

But I'm out of my mind and indisposed
In a disguise but no one knows
I thought we came to
see
what could be
Not to explain what's been stopping me

Don't stop no believe
Don't deceive
I believe in my home

So Carry your home
Wherever you go.
And Carry your home wherever you go

But conduits
I can't do this
On my own.
no no no.
Track Name: Liar(unkind)
Well four and twenty years ago I lost my mind
and never before and never again I shall evade from the fires
With grace before me, I will swallow
my resistant mind
For I have seen too much beauty to be unkind

I am not a liar
this life is divine
I am not a liar
Every moment is kind

So speak your heart and speak your mind
and never be akin to the unkind

Well four and twenty years ago
I walked the lines
And never before and never again I will avoid my darker sides

So speak your heart and speak your mind
and never be akin to the unkind

I am not a liar
I am not a liar
this life is divine.
Track Name: You stand on your own
I don't wanna be the reason you can't look at my face
I don't want our love's treasons to make you feel out of place
'cause I will always love you
But I should never need you
I need to know
I stand on my own

Don't make me into that thing
that keeps you up at night
I wish memories of our love
could tuck you in just right
And I will always love you
But I will never need you
You need to know
You stand on your own

I will never give up on you
I will always believe in you
'cause We are where my heart built its home

What you thought you lost with me
was not something that ever came from me
Love, your direction is your own

So don't mind that our memories
put a smile on my face
'cause the tie cannot be broken
Its a walk, not a chase

And I will always love you
But you should never need me
You need to know
You stand on your own
You need to know
And let me go
Track Name: Common Sense
Oh where has my heart gone
and can I hear the wind
And if fortune falls in my favour
was it me
was it me
Was it me?

But remember the heart of your mind:
It makes sense to be kind.
It makes sense. It makes sense to by kind.

But you are my wonder
you perfect lil' beings
And if fortunes fall in my favour
it was we
it was we
It was we.

So remember
The heart in your mind
It makes sense to be kind
It makes sense to be kind
So remember
the heart in your mind
It makes sense to be kind
It makes sense. It makes sense to be kind.
So remember.
Track Name: Blessed Be (Illusions)
Om, Blessed Om Blessed Om Blessed be
Om blessed Om blessed be Amen

I have gone too far misread
that is not who I am
now I find even helping hands can't work for nothing
oh no, you can't work for nothing
but in all this time
Have you only learned my name?
That is not who I am
I have no intent to call it my own
It is but my home

Blessed Blessed Blessed Blessed be
Keep your eyes open for what will be


But oh, don't you know who I am?
Like you I hold the answers in my hand
but to these illusions I am bound
Don't you know who I am? Don't you know who I am?
We are one and the same

Blessed Blessed oh Blessed be
Oh blessed, oh blessed be amen Amen.

Ain't no frown gonna get me
but these illusion
Theses illusions are getting me

Who do I think Am? Who do I think I am?
Blessed. Oh blessed Oh blessed me
Oh blessed. Oh blessed me, I am!
Amen.
Track Name: Matters of Love
I am a coward in matters of love
I have no tolerance for those who won't move when I shove
but when I seem invulnerable how fragile I am
When I am intolerable, who can tell me I am?
and if I am so strong, who is strong enough to hold my hand?
++
Oh, where has my heart gone?
Can I hear the wind?
And if a fortune falls
in my favour
is it me?Was it me?
Is it me? Was it me?
++
So, remember
The heart in your mind
It makes sense to be kind
It makes sense to be kind.
++
And you are my wonder
you pretty lil' thing
and if the fortunes fall
in my favour
it was we it was me it was we.
++
And Remember the heart in your mind
it makes sense to be kind
It makes sense It makes sense
to be kind.
++
So, don't be a coward
in matters of love
and have the patience to
unlearn Unlearn
when push comes to shove
and If I seem invulnerable:
Won't you take off my shell?
If I am intolerable, please won't you tell?

And if I seem so strong
be strong enough to hold my hand

and remember
remember.
