    Close Your Eyes?

    As you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you’ll find your solar-powered watch does not work. And the cell-phone reception is also quite constrained…

    Close your eyes
    Someone your age
    Should not see such rage.
    Falling from my mouth
    Into a pool of
    Deep, dark
    Towards the rapids
    Racing to this end.

    Please don’t turn away
    Your eyes can’t see
    You’re only pulling me
    Towards you.

    With every breath you breath
    It’s like magnets on your chest
    I feel them
    Please, please.

    I only want to talk to you.
    I only want to talk to you,
    In a very
    Very
    Extremely calming tone.

    You oughta know
    What I dream about you.
    When you’re not here.

    When I’m watching my TV.
    When I’m watching my TV.
    When I’m watching my TV I think of you.

    And I never turn away.

  • Mr. UniverseDownload

    Mr. Universe?

    I

    Hey there,
    Mr. Universe
    Tell me how to love
    Who to love
    Where to go

    You know
    You’re so beautiful
    Help me make a plan
    Take a stand
    Build a brand

    II

    Tell me
    Senior Funnybones,
    Did you have the hand
    In the plan
    In the stands?

    They think
    It’s all beautiful
    Can you hear the band?
    In the stands
    Build a brand.

    III

    Stand back
    From the megaphone
    Give me
    All the say
    Every way
    Every day.

    You know
    It’s all physical
    Help me make a plan
    Take a stand
    Be the man

    (Possibly the best guitar solos ever. In history. Nobody’s ever seen playing like this before.)

    IV

    Take me
    Down to Phlegethon
    Show me all the ways
    Every day
    You’re away

    You roll
    So political
    Is there any way
    When you go away
    And make this stop?

  • So Much To JustifyDownload

    So Much To Justify?

    How could you leave me?
    So much deception.
    How could you break down?
    So much to justify.

    Tell me you love me.
    Break my heart once more.
    Show me the dream now.
    So much to justify.

    Hey, if you see me.
    Walk on by just go.
    Go with your dream now.
    No more to justify.

  • That's A StoryDownload

    That's A Story?

    I

    Paris and Victor
    With nothing to do
    They’d headed for treasures
    Straight out in the blue
    They turned towards attention
    For only a view
    They returned for the game
    But found only two

    Forth towards adventure
    There is nothing more to say
    You are running towards a burning bridge
    No help is on the way
    There are many more to drop
    When you’ve thrown it all away
    That’s a story.

    Chorus

    Tell me friend
    Don’t tell no lie
    Of all your wounds
    And your surprise.

    Tell me when you realised
    That all you fears were realised
    Tell me that you realise
    And then we’ll have
    A story.

    II

    Help me, help me
    Defend from the waves
    I see my life coming due.

    Come to me
    In endless seas
    No daylight.
    Why can’t you save me?

    Chorus

  • FleshDownload

    Flesh?

    I

    I’m a bird.
    I’m a plane.
    And I’m every thought that ever rattles round inside your brain.
    I’m the dawn.
    I’m the light.
    I’m the sun the goes to sleep at night.

    I’m the cool
    In the flame
    That you never thought
    Could ever come
    And take your breath away.

    Down below
    From the height
    I am everything
    That you will leave tonight.

    Don’t tell me that you’re just visiting and living your best life.
    Don’t tell me that wearing out your final light.

    I’m the verse
    Of the rage
    And In every word that ever fought
    To find it on your page

    Take a look
    At the time
    It’s in everything that you will see tonight.

    Interlude

    Hey there, sister
    Stay where you are.
    Please,
    Say that you are.

    Drive fast or slow
    In the dark.
    An endless, empty
    Fiery angel’s spark.

    Don’t drive too fast
    You’ll go to slow
    You go to slow, you know.

    Don’t drive too fast
    You’ll go to slow
    You go too slow, you know.
    You know.

    II

    I’m a bird
    I’m a plane
    And I’m every thought that ever rattled round inside your brain.

    I’m the dawn
    I’m the light
    I’m the sun the goes to sleep at night.

    Don’t tell me that you’re just visiting and living your best life.
    Don’t tell me that wearing out your final eye.

    I’m the thirst
    For the rain
    And in every cost you ever thought
    Could take away your pain.

    Take a look
    Overhead
    And I’m everything
    And every thing
    That you’ll feel tonight.

  • Dream At NightDownload

    Dream At Night?

    I

    Dream at night
    Don’t be dramatic
    Own the cold
    That’s waiting for us.

    You were right
    To never wander
    Close the door
    There better quiet.

    Chorus

    I believe in you beyond the silence.
    I believe the mystery that you were
    I believe there is a resurrection
    I believe the end is never wrong.

    II

    Do you exist beyond the moonlight?
    Do you exist between the mysteries?
    Do you have life beyond the memory?
    Do you expect the next of daylight?

    Chorus

  • It's All Downhill From Here (Medley)Download

    It's All Downhill From Here (Medley)?

    I

    My old man was in the war
    He played around the Asian seas
    He came on back
    But it was in the days
    When all the pain you wouldn’t see

    II

    My first time
    Was in the hall
    There wasn’t anyone who’d see.

    She was polite
    As we said good night.
    Gallant to the seeds.

    Finale

    I

    Think it’s time we perceive there’s a limit
    And it’s time you realised
    There’s a full moon waiting
    Out there on the rise.

    II

    Think it’s time we’re excused from the visit
    And it’s time that you bid goodbye
    There a new group waiting
    On the other side.

    Think it’s time you examine the ticket
    And you’ll see on the other side
    There’s a whole list saying
    Fine print says
    Only five more
    Left to go.

    Interlude

    Now listen to me darling
    I hope you’ll understand
    There never really was a real plan.

    I’ve never been too honest
    About what’s in my hands.
    The force that we should never let command

    The awesome day will offer
    The rolling of the tide
    The politics we’re living in
    Left somewhere on the line.

    I couldn’t get you to understand
    That I’m
    No time
    No time
    No time
    No time

    Finale (Return)

    It’s time we return from what we’re given
    And it’s time that we say goodbye
    There’s a full moon rising
    In the night
    As I see your eyes

    There’s a time on the loan we were given
    But you can’t understand to be clear
    But it’s over see?
    It’s all downhill from here.

    Do you think that you really can hear me?
    Do you think that you really believe you can hear?
    Do you think that you really can hear me?
    Do you really think you can see it from here?

    And there’s nobody home.
    As you go on alone
    And you stand by that phone
    And hope you’ll see it here.

    There’s a time on the loan we were given
    But you can’t understand to be clear
    But it’s over see
    It’s all downhill from here.

    My old man was in the war

    Seattle 2020

There's a time on the loan we've been given
And you can't understand
So let's be clear
That it's over see
It's all downhill from here
