Track Name: A far kinder touch
I don't want to hide from the thought of you
do what it is that you need to
cause it hurts when we clutch
let's try something else
a far kinder touch

My fear and my pride
a powerful brew
like hooks in our hide
they bind me to you
and we're sick of being stuck
let's try something else
a far kinder touch

Then we find that we never told the truth
and it's not that we are liars
we never even knew
to fall between the wires
of the fence around the pews
to celebrate desire
all of the love none of the rules

Hot flush runs
through my face
am I ok?
well I think I'm ok
then it starts to dawn
this is where i had it wrong all along
and now it's clear

The way that it's been
these ownership blues
this dated dowry we need not choose
and the way that it seems
well it seems like abuse
our love in a cage
strung up by a noose

And it hurts when we clutch
let's try something else
a far kinder touch
Track Name: Chasing the Dragon
Weary stained
I light up skutch again
Like our fingers are not slowly turning yellow
lets pretend
In the cycle of the dried up husk
we're bleary eyed once more, at dusk

Feel the fire through the floor
I'm in someone else's feet
find the fuel to feed the fever
so that we don't need to sleep
and throughout there is this feeling
I can't ever seem to keep
as I start into the yearning as familiar as it is deep

Chasing the dragon again
elusive, seductive.. she pretends to be my friend
the game that we all play
though we know we'll never win
wishing in the moment
for the moment not to end

In my brain I need a crutch to stand
I put my money on betrayal
as I reach out my hand
In the spirit of not keeping score
we have a few...then we have a few more

(dose em' down and pretty soon)

Feel the fire through the floor
I'm in someone else's feet
find the fuel to feed the fever
so that we don't need to sleep
and throughout there is this feeling
I can't ever seem to keep
as I start into the yearning as familiar as it is deep

Chasing the dragon again
elusive, seductive.. she pretends to be our friend
the game that we all play
though we know we'll never win
wishing in the moment
for the moment not to end
Track Name: Lucky
It waits by the phone when the dice have been thrown
overlord of the unknown
for a slip on your pride, or by passing the time
all roads lead you to it's throne

to have seen, to have smiled
to have been here for a while oh

and it's strange the way any bright sunny day
mystery takes us away
through the veil unseen with a sigh or a scream
none here among us can say

to have lived and to die
to have been here for a while

so we shed our tears for you
nothing more that we may do
but to let you go and as we grieve
the balm of time our remedy

In the wake of weeping whispers, of yes I am on my way
the subtle easy feeling of yes, everything's ok
another page, another stage
another page, another stage
Track Name: My very own felurian
Spritely and inspired
you reached into the mire of my hesitation
spied behind the wile of my lying smile
playful in your explanation
singing 'come on man!'
there's much to see but how could you, could you ever understand?
an impossible demand
for the head stuck in the sand
then you took me by the hand
onwards to the fae!
please my love could you show me, show me the way?

I close my eyes
I slip through the cracks and i'm falling
when I arrive
from through the haze, hear you calling

compelled by the sweet spell of your song
wild adulations they rise to my lips
to be silenced by the press of your kiss
expectations dissolve in the mist
and the boundaries of where we exist

healing tantra
familiar feeling returning to one

bathed in violet afterglow
the unspoken plea that I not go
but I know love is wild as these groves
we play among them
we cannot claim them as our own

back in this heavy place
knowing grin is on my face
to have had just one little taste..
Track Name: Gratitude
Fast as it has come it has gone
sure was pretty though
yeah that orange glow...through my bedroom window
so another second recedes
the beautiful tragedy
time's implicit entropy

and what good is a song gone unsung?
let us sing this one
with a flailing tongue.. in reckless abandon

the gift of a life to lead
the blessing of blood to bleed
from the seed, from the seed to the towering tree
gratitude for each breath that I breathe

fast as it has come it has gone
sure was pretty though...
