Track Name: in my dream
Well all my life I have opened
And all my life I have tried to
Well I am living like a beggar
In the house of love

And while you were waiting
For me to invite you
You held my invitation
And I waited I'm waiting here for you

In a mind always knowing
And a heart always calling out
To the one whose been missing

Well were you missing who you do know?
Who you don't know?
Have you ever heard it call?

In my dream
In my dream
I get up I get out I walk across
The bridge between fear and loss and us
Well couldn't you come on out?
Said couldn't you come on out?
I can't wait
Oh I said I'm coming
Yeah I said I am coming
Back in the house

In my dream
In my dream
Track Name: broke my head
I broke my head
I broke my head
And when I looked in
There was nothing left
No one's gonna sleep in there again

And when I come around
Would you be so kind
And show me around
I know it's been awhile
I've been getting out of this rut
All of my life

I broke my heart
Yeah it broke my heart
Cause when I looked in there
Well everyone I met
Said it was a lie we had

And when I come around
Would you be so kind
And show me around
I know it's been awhile
I've been getting off of this drug
All of my life

When you cut and run
Head for the sun
Head for the arms of anyone who's getting free
I'll lay myself down
Here in the ground
Here in the arms of the one who carried me

I broke my soul
It's sad I know
But I wish for the sun
When it's calm it's calm at dawn

And I've been waiting here
The man in the moon of rain and tears
You think that I've been leaving
But I'm ok
It's just been strange these days
And nothing stays the same around here

When you cut and run
Head for the sun
Head for the arms of anyone who's getting free
I'll lay myself down
Here in the ground
Here in the arms of the one who carried me
Track Name: machine runs fine
The machine runs fine
On this assembly line
I make my way
And would you say
That I could buy myself someday
I could use the time away
Never had a holiday

From the madness in her mouth
That we called a reason
For helping all those monkeys up and down
But it gets her off
So soft so soft

Take my hand and I'll lead you to my ghost
'Cause the bottom line's gonna show
There 'aint gonna be no sunny day
There 'aint gonna be no sunny day

But the machine runs fine
On this assembly line of mind
I make my way
And would you say
That I could buy myself someday
I could use the time away
Never had a holiday

But I'll try to make it across
Here with the monkeys in your eaves trough
I'll try to make it across
Here take the money and run

Take my hand and I'll lead you to my ghost
'Cause the bottom line's gonna show
There 'aint gonna be no sunny day
There 'aint gonna be no sunny day
There 'aint gonna be no sunny day
There 'aint gonna be no sunny day
Hell

But the machine runs fine
On this assembly line
I make my way
Track Name: when we go
One day you will bury me
In the orchard with my trees
One day you will die and I will grieve
But would you like to stay with me

And where we go
I cannot say
I am not scared
When we go we will be there

And we'll have daughters we'll have sons
And one day they will bury us
Like the one's who came before
Well I am waiting on your shore

And where we go I cannot say
I am not scared
When we go we will be there

And maybe it's romantic
And maybe I'm naive
But I am holding onto you
And you are holding on to me
And when my time has finally come
I hope that you are there with me
I am a sailor on the ocean
My boat is made of leaves
And when we go, When we go, when we go...

And I have been a broken man
But I have tried the best can
And when it's all been said and done
Well if you chase me I won't run

And where we go I cannot say
I am not scared
When we go we will be there

And maybe it's romantic
And maybe I'm naive
But I am holding onto you
And you are holding on to me
And when my time has finally come
I hope that you are there with me
I am a sailor on the ocean
My boat is made of leaves

And yes I know that it's romantic
And I know that I'm naive
But I am holding on to you
And you are holding on to me
And when my time has finally come
You will not find me on my knees
I am a sailor on the ocean
My boat is made of leaves
And when we go, When we go, when we go...
Track Name: over the ocean
We have left the shore
And it's good out here under the sun
And you are so beautiful
I don't care if we ever get there

And hail the daughters who are born
And hail the sons who will chase after them
Like you chased me around the shore
It's nice to meet you yeah

We have left the shore
And we brought along some friends of yours
And I have friends on distant shores
I think that my friends should meet yours

And hail the people we have known
We miss you hopefully we'll meet again
And when we get there
You can come along with us

And soar over the ocean
And soar over the ocean

We have time to spare
And it's one beautiful world out there
And I can't waste my life being scared
Time is one hell of a dare

And hail the parents of us all
And hail the waters we are sailing on
And thank-you both for everyone
Whose ever lived

And soared over the ocean
And soared over the ocean
And soar over the ocean
And soar over the ocean
Track Name: in the morning i woke up
Well in the morning I woke up
I woke up and I was here
And I will go to work today
But I would rather stay in bed

And it's just another day in hell
But there are lovers in the park
And when I pass them on my way
It only make me smile

And no sad stories to tell ya
It's just another crazy mile
And in the washroom of the world
I was trying to wash my hands

O if I can
This world is made of pain
If I can
This world is made of me
And wherever you are...

Well in the morning I woke up
I woke up and I was here
And I'll keep staring at these walls
Until I make 'em disappear

And lead me to you my only lover
My joy and wonder my lonely sorrow
I surrender to you my love and thank-you
My joy and wonder my only lover
And wherever you are... Wherever you are

And I'll keep breaking the dawn every day
I'll keep breaking open my ghost
I'll make a prayer of this day
I'll find the heaven in this heaven in this world
The heaven in this world
The heaven in this...

Well in the morning I woke up
I woke up and I was here
And I will go to work today
But I would rather stay in bed
Track Name: get off my lawn
Offer me your body
Give me your eyes
I wanna feel a million mouths on mine
And I can see a billion faces in my mind

Get off my lawn I'm talking to you
Get off my lawn
I don't wanna give up my world for nothing
Get off my lawn

See don't see me
Feel don't feel me
Stay don't stay
Come on give me something
Give me something

I sit and watch you
Take off your clothes
Like a mime or a ghost
And you say "I get everything I want
I get everything I want
Why should I share it with you?"

Get off my lawn I'm talking to you
Get off my lawn
I don't wanna give up my world for nothing
Get off my lawn

See don't see me
Feel don't feel me
Stay don't stay
Come on I feel nothing
See don't see me
Feel don't feel me
Stay don't stay
Come on give me something
Give me something
Give me something
Track Name: baby june
I hid inside for a week
We lay around like elephants on the sheets
And there is a full moon outside
I feel like a world sometimes

And you are a moon
You are a moon
Baby June

Maybe you don't understand me
Maybe you just won't feel me
Maybe you just can't hear me at all
Well hey that's ok
I'm just singing to my tribe

You are a moon
And you are a moon
Baby June

And we are the ones
Who reach with broken hands
And I am holding on to you
I will keep you while I can
But I'm holding nothing
And you have other plans
For all we are
Baby June

Suddenly you were laughing
And I was a mad poet dancing around you
You threw up your skirt
I buried myself there and I
Am an opening orbit around you

And you are a moon
You are a moon
Baby June

And I hold a fire in my hands
I'm holding a fire in my hands

And we are the ones we are the ones
Who were born and we will die
We are the ones we are the ones
Who tear gods down from the sky
And you are a moon
You are a moon
And you are a moon
You are a moon
Baby June

We hid inside for a week
I'm going to make some coffee
Are you hungry
Would you like to sleep some more
Track Name: american eyes
When I look in American eyes
At the distance between you and I
Sad as the sun in your hair
I wonder what I'm doing here
Asleep in American arms
And freezing out in the yard
Old as American eyes
The hell between you and I

So here we go
Welcome to my home
The home I've never known
Leave your boots by the door

When they were looking west
With heaven on their heads
I wonder if they said over there
We will find the sunset

When I look in American eyes
At the border between you and I
Laugh at the war we have got
Keeping the cold that we caught

Asleep in American arms
And dreaming out on the lawn
Told in American eyes
The hell between you and I

Just let it go
It's hard this I known
But welcome to my home
The home I've never known
And here we go
Welcome to my home
The home I've never known
Leave your boots by the door

And everybody knows
That we are growing old
Doing like we're told over here
And watching the sunset
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Track Name: photograph i hold
I pushed myself maybe I fell
I could still hear you breathing in the hallway
But I'll get along all by myself
I could still hear you crying in the hallway
But this is how it goes you should've known

And no one has a hand to hold
And I am watching my life go by
Like a ghost who died
A long long time ago

And heaven knows I've been told
That every hour that I have sold
Was someone somewhere growing old
You were reminding me of someone I don't know

My lay my love my lung my noose
It's all a sham a joke that I have played on you
Get out while you can 'cause I'm not getting better
I'm just getting worse and this is getting tired
You must be getting tired And I'm just getting tired

And I'm just getting tired

My name Is a photograph I hold in front of your face
My arms Are a photograph I hold in front of your face
My love Is a photograph I hold in front of your face
And everything I've ever said
Is a photograph I hold in front of your face
And I'm just getting tired
Track Name: mining the moons of mars
Don't worry maya the cargo will hold
Mountains of gold if we do as we're told
When we are told
And we have been sailing a week and a day
How is it going I really can't say
But we'll be there soon

Mining the moons of mars
We'll me mining the moons of mars
Very soon

And I had a dream that we traveled too far
Into the hold of a binary star
There we were stranded and some of us died
Those who were left felt that we had arrived
To where we had gone

Mining the moons of mars
We'll me mining the moons of mars
And I'll be happier I'm out here
Where I'll be mining the moons of mars
Very soon

I have been crazy now for fourty days
Sometimes I whisper let's throw me away
But I'll be there soon
We'll be there soon

* * *

The train left eight days ago
leaving us on this empty shore
where we are to wait.

Where we were before.

Somehow there's something here.
I can almost remember it.
Sort of like we were always here
waiting for something.
Waiting for boats to come,
waiting for someone to come,
waiting for each other.

Very far away i heard a noise.

It sounded kind of like a voice or a bell
and it was saying something.

Saying something.

Sand poured through my toes.

I took off my clothes and went for a swim,
and then crawled back up to the shore
and fell asleep.
And i waited for something,
for someone,
i didn't know.

I was sleeping for a very long time.


When I awoke boats had arrived,
and i was surrounded.

Crowds of people
all strangely familiar were everywhere.

And they started boarding.
I laughed and i stood up to stretch a little and to watch them.
Millions of people.

It never occurred to me to join them.
I was waiting.

Someone tried to call me
from the deck
and i waved back at them.

I thought they were crying.

I was confused
and I sat down in the sand.

More people came
and they rushed by me
to join the others.

The boats were spilling over.

Less people came
until I watched
the last person board.

And then anchors went up.
The sails went up.
They started to leave.

It was a nice afternoon.

The ships were making beautiful patterns
as they began to sail away
and for some reason I found myself in tears.
I was waiting.

Suddenly i started to run.

I ran out into the water
and they were already very far away.
I screamed to people
who had waved to me
but they could not hear me.
I tried to will them to stop,
I screamed myself raw
but they could not hear me.
I was panicking,
I wasn't going to catch them.
I was watching them sailing.
I could not see them.
I fell into the water.
I watched them sailing.
I tried to scream but I couldn't.
I watched them sailing

And they were gone.

I was alone.

I was alone on the shore and it was silent.


Slowly something else began to happen.
I made my way back onto the beach
and I could here voices very far away.

The sun was setting.

A few more people came running
and I had to explain to them
what had just happened.

I had to explain,
what had just happened.

And they listened.

And they understood.

And we sat on the shore.

We sat on the shore
and we watched the sunset.

Set over heaven.

And we sat on the shore
and we watched the sun set.

Set over heaven.
Track Name: you are my sunshine (cover)
You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make my happy
When skies are grey
And you’ll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

The other night here
As I lay sleeping
I dreamt I felt you held you in my arms
But when I awoke here
I had been mistaken
Now you have taken
All of my dreams away

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make my happy
When skies are grey
And you’ll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away
Please don’t take my sunshine away
Track Name: in our time
So how's the lucky boy
With the broken heart
And how's the lucky girl
Crying in the dark
Well we are the children
Of the daddies who were torn
And where are the Mommy's
Of the babies who were born

In this time and in this place
When the world is in our face
When the world looks out of place
In this time and in this place

Well there was this guy
Who put it so well, he put it so well
Baby you were born in heaven
So why're you trying to die in hell
So maybe nothing's wrong
And maybe it's alright
Maybe I could make it through tomorrow
If you could help me through tonight

In this time and in this place
When the world is in our face
When the world looks out of place
In this time and in this place
In this time...

Well we are the children of
The people who have tried
To make things better
In our time In our time
In our time In our time...

So how's the lucky boy
And how's the lucky girl
How's the lucky baby
Clinging to the world Clinging to the world
Clinging to the world Clinging to the world...

Maybe we could not be sad
Maybe we could not be sad
Said maybe we could not be sad
Track Name: lose sometimes
I was waiting in the field
When you were reading my will
Inside a coldest winter's wind
Hanging on a last tree's breath again

And hey ma
Did you like the flowers they sent ya?
They were so in love with the money
That they didn't know how to tell ya
And you know sometimes
I really started to hate you
But that's alright now
Cause I'm just moving home

I guess we all get to lose sometimes
Guess we all get to get it wrong
And then make it up
Or don't make it up

Well mama says that I'm not here
And mama says that I'm not real
But there were people in this field
There are people in this field

Why don't you come and find me?
Why don't you come and find me?
Won't you come and find me?
Won't you come and find me?
