STRETCH YOUR EYES

The dark and the ghost
They dance so sweet and slow
Dug-out from below there
to damn the gods
A grip that will hold
So tight and close
Around my throat with
the weight of all our lives
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
The drum you stroke
Damn that beat so old
In the ground it grows there
To damn the sun (oh what will come to life)
Gates of gold
In your head you hold
A kingdom molten
May the gods be on your side
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more

FAMILIAR

Can you walk on the water if I, you and I?
Because your blood’s running cold outside the familiar true to life
Can you walk on the water if I, you and I?
Or keep your eyes on the road and live in the familiar without you and I
It glows with gates of gold to true life
For our love is a ghost that the others can’t see
It’s a danger
Every shade of us you fade down to keep
them in the dark on who we are
(Oh what you do to me)
This love is gonna be the death of me
It’s a danger
Cause our love is a ghost that the others can’t see
We took a walk to the summit at night, you and I
To burn a hole in the old grip of the familiar true to life
And the dark was opening wide, do or die
Under a mask of vermillion ruling eyes
And our love is a ghost that the others can’t see
It’s a danger
Every shade of us you fade down to keep
them in the dark on who we are
(Oh what you do to me)
Gonna be the death of me
It’s a danger
Cause our love is a ghost that the others can’t see

IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN

I swear it is true
The past isn’t dead
It’s alive, it is happening
In the back of my head
No future, no past
No laws of time
Can undo what is happening
When I close my eyes
And with the stars and the moon
I woke up in the night
In the same place
to save me for my eyes
It’s happening, it’s happening, it’s happening again
It’s happening, it’s happening, it’s happening again
I took a day or two
to exile from the light
To unfold that prisoner
they call a mind
And for a brief moment
we could stop the time
But with the stars and the moon
I woke up in the night
In the same place, it was sailing before my eyes
It’s happening, it’s happening, it’s happening again

STONE

They say every sin will have a thousand eyes
To guilty fools with guilty minds
But I must be cruel to be kind
Deep within my head of stone
could I be - of stone - could I be - of stone - could I be
Oh how the birds forget to sing
Do they know where I have been?
Oh how I will leave you there again
Deep within my head of stone
could I be - of stone - could I be - of stone - could I be
You are my only one
You are my only one
You are my lonely one
You are my only one
Oh for the trees did grow there, and the plants did spring
Oh for they know a lovers sin
Ain’t made of paper or of string
It’s cast into a head of stone
could I be - of stone - could I be - of stone - could I be

TROJAN HORSES

These bare bones are made of glass
See-through to the marrow when they pass
See through the keyhole, a fate is cast
Deep in the mirror smiling back
In shapes like these, they run softly
Trojan horses, Trojan horses
Gardens grow in my eyes,
Oh why do they?
Gardens grow in my eyes
Oh why do they?
Seek what I seek in a blinding flash
These bare bones are made of glass
In shapes like these, they run softly
Trojan horses with all the children
I tell myself I wanna hide
I tell myself I wanna be lied to
Silent reader of my mind, Do you know what I will ask of you?
Tell me if you wanna hide,
Tell me if you wanna be lied to

GOLDEN GREEN

All I have or should
want to be but never could
It’s coming at, it’s coming at, it’s coming at my heart
To spoil my soul with fire
All my eyes can see is
born out of your imagery
It’s coming at, it’s coming at, it’s coming at my heart
To scorch the earth with fire
Tell me who you really love
Tell me who you really love
Tell me who you really love
Who are you to take over my mind
with your eyes on me
All for you I am climbing the sky
of golden green
Angel green and blue
I’m gonna leave my mind with you
It’s coming at, it’s coming at, it’s coming at my heart
I know, I see, I wanna be just free
I know, it craves, it’s running through my veins
To spoil my soul with fire
Tell me who you really love
Tell me who you really love
Who are you to take over my mind
with your eyes on me
All for you I am climbing the sky
of golden green
Green
Green
Green

MARY

Heaven hid her face as we fell down
Age old habits echoed in the ground
One would sing and one would hold me down
They might listen if I make no sound
Oh I know this
From my high school heart
That nothing is over
From a touch it will begin
Wide on the sky
In my house the silence rang so loud
Under doorways, through the hallway down
Waiting for the secret to grow out
Oh what we do when no one is around
Oh I know this
From my high school heart
That nothing is over
From a touch it will begin
Wide on the sky
In the dark I hear you sing
Fingers move and chords they ring
Be the witness of my shame
Swaying in the summer rain
Feathers falling from your wing
In the dark I hear you sing
