Track Name: Aztec Soldiers
bags unpacked
the laughter swam at night
we made a fort of ladders and our stolen signs
we clipped our icons
hung them to remind us that the stars could shine forever
acorns rained down
the punchbowl flooded
mornings serenaded
goodness time flies
oh sweet miracles
the children who'll believe
that playgrounds last forever
sometimes I lie awake hearing
your prayers and if I cry all day
I'm reaching, you're there
piles of leaves for cover
Aztec soldiers
over years I lost my shield
you carried on the battle crawling
through the trenches head held high & fighting
sometimes I lie awake hearing
your prayers and if I cry all day
I'm reaching, you're there
sometimes I lie awake
hearing your prayers and if
you cry all day, I'll sing "Heal the Pain"
Track Name: The Dig
lead me to my final resting place
numb me up so
I don't dig in vain
I'm buried again
change it might the light I fear to face
if only I deny a little taste
I'm buried again
(one, two, three, four, in my pocket
eight in the safe
feeling the walls peeling away
how many years, fading away?)
blame the rage that fills the empty space
till I decide to send it in my place
I'm buried again
Track Name: Gluten Free Us
Tara brines her pickles in a washing machine
Buddy's honey's "suh-weet" now that he's used to the stings
naming all the goats after the herbs on the cheese
photoshop the apples off that rot on the trees
will drinking mint kombucha cure our mad cow disease
when will it eat us
the gluten free us
why this excess
when hunger exists
when will it eat us
the gluten free us
all this excess
starves our senses
Kelly's cookie binges force her not to be seen
Scotty's pumpkin lattes, a perverted routine
fed through second windows
sucked the poison through straws
hiding from a scale that fails
confirming our flaws
and children get a treat for
being neat and we applaud?
when will it eat us
the gluten free us
why this excess
when hunger exists
Track Name: Drilled In
you can't have that until you prove yourself
compared to them, you're not as beautiful
what if you were told that over and over again
Over and over and over and over again
you're not like them
why can't you fix yourself
too late, too bad
don't take a risk, give up
what if you were told that over and over again
phrased in different ways
but they're saying the same thing again
what if you were told that over and over again
drilled in, broke your will but rebelling until the end
when someone who says they love you wants
you to change they judge you
plying your shape to a frame that you can't fit in
it's taken some years to see it
it's not about love or is it
they're getting a high thinking
they're healed inside through you
you are beautiful
in body, mind and soul
and perfection dies for those that just use their eyes
what if you were told that over and over again
being yourself is just something you can't pretend
what if you were told that over and over again
telling yourself that over and over again
images they bend, messages they send
Track Name: Care as Currency
waking my mind
have faith
in kindness we'll repay
it's wasting life away to measure wealth by weight
make it so
the will to let it go
I owe a lot for naught
I'm shot and laying low
worth a fortune he can't see
when debts are settled
set him free
days of selling short I'll trade for buying
care as currency appreciates
what a blast
we gave it all our best
thought it would last
but there's a fine line in
keeping perfect time
worth a fortune he can't see
when debts are settled
set him free
the days of selling short I'll trade for buying
care as currency appreciates
Track Name: United
life will pause and then rewind
here is so remote you launch
a mission to the moon
time will lighten troubles old
open up, unite the souls
that will hold your heart close
tease the doubting voice inside
dance around the room till it subsides
fearful minds with empty cups
you will be the first to fill them up
all you show is love
your engine red
brilliance fed by a fire
free fall flight, rising tide
I feel you by my side
sweetness savored
all homemade for the ones that hunger most
rose bouquets toast the days
surviving what no one knows
all you show is love
Track Name: The Whole Sum
wait to see the whole sum
wait, till you see what we'll become
we are so hungry to feed our souls like
zombies left condemned to roam
wait to see the whole sum
wait, till the sea swallows the sun
time is so binding and the belt is tightening
notch by notch we go
wait to see the whole sum
wait, for the clearing skies above
when the earth is quaking and the waves are breaking
it's Hope that we call home
wait to see the whole sum
Track Name: Changing Sky
fold your blankets
wrap your trinkets
watch them hauled away
wash your handprints off the mirrors
paint the walls a bluish gray
all the joy around me makes me cry
wishing you could see this morning light
put my face on
slowly drowning
nothing looks the same
befriending strangers
cling to their words
those who barely knew your name
all the joy around me makes me cry
wishing you could see this morning light
all the beauty 'round me
asking why
you're not here to see this changing sky
oh kind old soul
you gave all you had to give
for this changing sky
my changing sky
Track Name: Fade Orion
fade Orion
life will go on
push me through the days
in the knowing the light is growing
shift is surging in waves
in days the waves
the waves in days
they discontinued our kind
expect that they'll send a sign
the clue inside of you
sensations
circle view the fields
bounty yields from the sky
decode the patterns in time
and what if you're left behind
vow to start anew and join a loyal few
sold on their survival guide
fade Orion
life will go on
push me through the days
minds collective turned the tide
elected scouts who'll reroute the maze of days
the maze of days
amazing race of days
set a trail ablaze
the Secret swallows our time
we're swimming through tar and blind
to the signals flashing green
and the moments in between
it's what we'll take with us on the ride
fade Orion
life will go on push me through the days
where we're going
reviews are glowing
counting down the days
the date we wait
stay up late
toasting fate for days
end of days
Track Name: Woman at a Window
woman at a window
selling maps and guides
locked inside a box
to watch the clock unwind
bend time
dreaming of a universe with open doors
into a dimension
past the world she knows
bend time
she'll try
woman at a window
worn afraid of heights
how far will she climb to reach her heart's desire
send signs
drumming circle
flares to light the night on fire
peering off the ledge
there is no net she cries
send signs
she'll climb
spark
a flame
go fuel it
life is out there
prove it
woman at a window speeding towards the sky
pilot on her own
look down the world below
hold tight
mission to explore a deeper space
the stars smile on her face
could there be something more
hold tight
she'll fly
Track Name: BONUS TRACK: Here and Now (The Blackie O. Remix)
just living on a sunday morning
got my toast and tea and I'm warm and
I just thought I'd think about
all the things to get and keep getting,
never enough not enough and never ending
I just thought I'd think about

the comfort of a knowledge of a rise above the sky
but could never parallel the challenge of an acquisition in the
here and now, here and now

parody of yourself in color,
giving it to everybody but your mother
you've got much to think about
soaring higher with every treason
never justify, never reason
you've got much to think about....
and it might be...

the comfort of a knowledge of a rise above the sky
but could never parallel the challenge of an acquisition in the
here and now, here and now

and it might ...
