Track Name: Bacon and Eggs
walking down the avenue
i look across the street
a young child and his dad
are waiting for the buss

it's been sunny all day.. today
the kids just got out of school
everybody's running around,

and i just had breakfast
bacon and eggs
i'm walking back to Broadway,
i'm walking back to Broadway

the park is full of kids,
everybody's running around
everybody's running around

noisy kids is the voice of God,
mixing with car sounds
and down on Broadway,
there's a lot of traffic

everybody's leaving town
everybody's leaving town
for the holidays
for the holidays

walking down the avenue
i look across the street
a young child and his dad
are waiting for the buss
Track Name: Grasshopper
--flags are flying in the wind, grasshoppers and crows, and mountain li-ons.
scratch at the window, in a child's dream. the children are sleeping in a quiet room.

all these nightmares, from the world. do not enter this room, do not enter this room.
battle ships in the gloom, fight lost battles, in old movies.

--we chase streets cars, to horizons, grasshoppers and crows, and mountain lions.
gods and jihadists lost in school rooms. gods and jihadists lost in school rooms.

all these storms that make landslides. rivers and kings in paradise.
scratch at windows, in a child's dream.
but tell them please, don't enter, this room.

--children sleeping in a quiet room. dream that the world turns, around the moon.
and we chace streetcars of dsire. grasshoppers and crows, and mountain lions.
Track Name: Richie
Richie ,
meet me down at the cemetery.
you know witch monument,
the dead child, and the mother weeping.

your secret kiss and your secret smile.
hold me close for a while.
i'll see you tomorrow afternoon,
after class i'll walk you home from school.

--all of the light in your eyes
fills my heart and fills my mind
i love to touch you, and to see
your handsome face when your talkin to to me.

Richie, who do you love, Richie.
tell me you love me, tell me you love me,
i'll see you tomorrow afternoon,
after class i'll walk you home from school.

--all of the light in your eyes
fills my heart and fills my mind
i love to touch you, and to see
your handsome face when your talkin to to me.


Richie ,
meet me down at the cemetery.
you know witch monument,
the dead child, and the mother weeping.
Track Name: Silver Clown
Rocky was old, and the rocky road
was his life, a smile in a knife,
freed to bleed into the town.
the stores were full of blood and oranges.

-- he walked around like a silver clown,
lost in a town of invisibles
the clock was stuck at 13
..a fool juggled oranges.

Rocky was hard when saw the boy
24 that was all just 24
and that kid liked the way that man
danced across the street to shake his hand

he looked around at the old town
that boy had to laugh
that clock was stuck at 16
an old man eating oranges
Track Name: Sleeping Alone
Johnny came back to me,
on a rainy day in November
like something i'd forgotten,
and couldn't quite remember.

the apartment was freezing
and playing on the radio
an old tune out of season
about a Summer afternoon

look at me again Johnny,
look in my eyes ...
you fill my mind Johnny,
but i barely remember you.

when the clocks strikes 5, i have to go to work
it's just a job. make yourself at home
i hope you spend the night
i hate sleeping alone

some where over the rainbow
was that the song
you sang to me that night in New York
when you did that show

but you've come back to me,
on a rainy day in November
yes Johnny came back to me,
Johnny came back to me.
Track Name: the Long Night
out of memories you walked in
to my life, to my life
out of the elevator, and i said "it's you"
walking down the hall, walking down the hall

-hold me tight, through the long night
angles and prophets will arise
on rainbow wings, and in your dreams,
i'll kiss you, and sing a lullaby

all the illusions that i'd lost
like ships on the horizon, ships on the horizon
almost lost and storm tossed
but you walked down the hall to me.

-a river flows, in your dark eyes
a choir sings, and your shy smile
makes me dream, through the ling night.
rain on the window, "hold me tight"
Track Name: Winter Song
liberty and peace of mind
sanity and wealth
beyond belief
an old story from a blind
belief in glory, belief in time

raise a fist or try to hide
build a better wall
to hide behind

better find another time
another window, a new mind
what price sanity
sanity and what you find

rivers flowing in your mind
cars that run away from time

old man comes down the road
singing mad songs
singing mad songs on the radio

tv princes wears old clothes
on the pretty tv show
asking questions we don't know
asking questions we don't know
