Track Name: Glass House
Glass House

Glass house glass house in a row
Turn the lights on make it glow make it show
Put the kids in paint the rooms
Tuck them into their cocoon
Make their bodies bloom
Underneath the harvest moon
Caste off your robes no longer roam
Trade your wings in for a rope
Tie it tight onto a post
Never to let go
As your body bows
And your mind Grows old
and yr soul is but a spark
Of its former fire
Now your on the wire
As you watch your love and your light expire

Cause your caught inside a glass house
Glass house in a row watch the bodies line up every morning on the avenue
And you try to escape but you fear yr fate is tangled up in the traffic every afternoon

Glass house glass house full of wind
Your in the eye of the hurricane
You board yourself in
Six steps to the cellar door
Hit the lights grab the kids
But your standing in the dark alone
Breath in
Now your on the phone call yr wife
Check the stove
But nobodies home to cast the first stone
So your body roams
Over the lovely bones
Of your empty home
All broken up broken up

glass house glass house
In a row watch the bodies line up every morning on the avenue
And you cant explain why you choose to remain
In a house of mirrors so you can memorize your pain
Glass house glass house in a row
Turn the lights off listen to your thoughts on the radio
And you try to escape but you fear yr fate is tAngled up in the traffic every afternoon
Track Name: Hungry Ghost
HUNGRY GHOSTS

You put yr money where yr money wont talk
But its still all you can talk about
And when yr out you eye the women with their long legs
Walking with a cigarette looking for a safety net
You push the door back
Holla for a drink jack
Pushing through the crowd like their pages on the internet
You hit the men’s room
Try to make yrself cool
Looking in the mirror at the man you know you never knew

Oh it’s a solid world
But you float around
Like yr hollowed out
Better ask yrself
Why you can’t appear
Better watch yrself
Or you’ll disappear

You followed all the rules
But it doesn’t help
You served yr master well
Worshiping yrself
Are you really here
Are you a hungry ghost
Join the congregation
Come on and take yr post
Track Name: Backslider
BACKSLIDER

I met u in the winter
Our fingers crossed our hearts began to shiver
We didn’t see the blizzard
We fell into a slumber
We kissed our hearts fell under
The spell of coming summer
When summer spread its fire
Our romance had expired
Throw it in the fire
What we thought was love What we thought was love
Was devoid of any kindness
And though we thought we were right We knew it wasn’t right
Just another form of blindness

Were living in a dream were living in a dream
Now were living in a nightmare
BACKSLIDER
Hold a candle to your face Hold a candle to my face
Make our world a little brighter
BACKSLIDER

I met you in the summer
You woke me from my slumber AND THEN
You gestured to come over
Your body was electric
Think eta james with hendrix YR LIPS
Yr lips were playing music
My heart was in a panic
We kissed behind the lilacs WE KISSED
The moon was full above us
And though I wasn’t sure And though I wasn’t sure
I knew she was for me
And though it wasn’t love and though it wasn’t love
We helped each other see

Were living in a dream Were living in a dream
Now the dream is almost over
BACKSLIDER
Hold a candle to my face Hold a candle to yr face
Throw our fear upon the fire
BACKSLIDER
Throw it on the fire
La la la la la la la la throw it on the fire
Track Name: Vertebrae
Vertebra

I know where you could stay deep inside of me
Ill move things around there’ll be plenty enough space
You might be weary of this choice you’ve had to make
But I swear you’ll fit nicely in with my vertebra


Ill make you a bed out of blood cells woven tight
You’ll stay in the heat ray by the fireside in my heart
I’ll watch you all night from the hollows in the stars
You’ll try to find me I’ll say hurry im not that far
Track Name: Venus in Spurs
Venus in Spurs

Baby
Im finally finding out that yr crazy
It don’t matter how much I loved you
Cause love don’t compensate for what you do

U were my lady
U made my vision blurred and hazy
But now that I can finally see through you
I see yr love was only half way true

Baby
now all you say is way too heavy
You reachin out you should be reachin in
Yr hearts a house of cards made in the wind

Lalalalalalalalala la la la la

U say yr happy cause yr moving on
Found someone else who hasn’t played your song
Your tongues on fire but I wont look back
My life with you was like a heartattack

Baby
Yr out for blood but way too picky
U need a man who can be fooled by you
Cause hypocrytes comes wearing all their shoes

Baby
Now im so happy there’s no maybes
Your life’s a mess why don’t you clean it up
Your like a shovel when you need a mop

U were my lady now your not so long
U were my baby but your honey never tasted so wrong
Track Name: Reionize!
Reionize!

Oh my love
Came raining down
But the better part of me
Never seemed to get out
All my life
I tried to give
All my love for free
But now im getting sick
Time it leaves
And comes right back
But my love left this world
With my heart in her hat

Ooooooh yr beautiful
But I need help
Ooooooh im beautiful
But I need help

All my days
Been riding on me
Cause I cant let go
And I cant give in
Oh I try
But I cant forgive
But what’s the point
If my love never lives
Oh my love
Come lay with me
Cause I tried so hard
But im in love with a dream

Ooooooh yr beautiful
But I need help
Ooooooh im beautiful
But I need help
Track Name: Black Moon River
Black Moon River

Cold air rises over everything I see
Dark descends and rests its head against my knee
Trees they shift and bend and gesture to my needs
The sky it opens up and pulls me by my feet

With the light……….
With the light…….

The city sits across the river where I flee
Shining all its rusty eyes at me
I need a quiet place to fly to sleep
Where the weight of the world cant pry me from this dream

I need a little help come after me
My love my love my love is vanishing
I know there’s hope I know I have the seed
My love my love come wake me into me

With the light………..
With the light……

Cold air rises over everything I see
Dark descends and rests its head against my knee
Tress they shift and bend and gesture to my needs
The sky it opens up and pulls me by my feet
