Track Name: Lenten Rose
You'll have to be a lenten rose
You'll have to be a flower blooming in the cold
You'll have to be a candle
You'll have to be a torchlight in a cave
You'll have to be the evening star
You'll have to be a lifeline from a boat
You'll have to be a cooling touch
You'll have to be a window or a door
Be a door
An open door
(Oh, how a rose e'er blooming)
Track Name: Laura Leigh
Laura Leigh, Laura Leigh, Laura Leigh, please listen to me
We can take the air from our old friend the night
We can take the air..
Laura Leigh, listen up, this is real, we are not dreaming
There's a pattern here, but it's subject to change
We can see what's wrong with the world
Summertime will come
Summertime will come and take you down
Down to the riverbed, where we were young
Birds fly high, girl
Birds fly high and carry you down
Down to the riverbed, where we were young
Lift up your eyes,
Lift up and claim your place in the sun
We are not dreaming of bluer skies
Lift up your eyes....
We are not dreaming of higher highs
Lift up your eyes....
We are not dreaming
Not even when we die
Laura Leigh, let me go, come with me
And chase the waves down
Where the tide rolls in
And it washes our skin
And the tide rolls out
And we're thrashing about in the dark
And the trash
And the shit
And my love, it surpasses understanding
We can see what's wrong with the world
We can make it right
We can make it right
We can make it right
Little girl
Track Name: Raid
You lit a fire in a stone
And I walked down to the shore
And the children are all grown
And the water's turned to bone
Synchronous and syncopated
This old world is so outdated
You stay here and I'll go trade it in for you
He lit a fire in her eye
And the smoke blew out to sea
There's a castle in my heart
We can live there when we die
Synchronous and syncopated
Out of step, we're so ill fated
You stay here and I'll go
Raid the dark for you
Track Name: Jane
Piano through the windowpane
And the water rushing in
Someone's out there singing
Box of Rain
The light refracts into a million honeycombs
The dog's asleep, he's dreaming of a squirrel bone
Her silhouette is breaking
Over riverstones
Still she remains, Jane
She rests her head against a stormcloud
She watches as the moon obscures the sun like a shroud
Ocean waves are pounding
Against the windowpane
And the water rushes in
Someone's out there singing
Box of Rain
Still she remains
Jane
Track Name: Goddess of The Baltimore in Your Mind
Every time I hear the sound
I can hear the sound
Put your ear
To the ground...
And there comes a time
When you are called upon
To be the Goddess of the Baltimore in Your Mind
And there's come a time when you are called upon
To bear witness to the demise of all mankind
And you say
WAIT!
And you say
WAIT!
And you say
STOP!
And you say....
Every time I hear the sound
I can hear the sound
Put your ear
To the ground
And there comes a time
When you are called upon
To be the Jupiter of the Universe in Your Mind
And you cast an eye
On all that's cast away
Washed ashore since the beginning of time
And you say
WAIT!
And you say
WAIT!
And you say
STOP!
And you say.....
And there comes a time
When you are called upon
To be the Goddess of The Baltimore in Your Mind
And there comes a time
When you are called upon
To bear witness to the demise of all mankind
And you say
WAIT!
And you say
WAIT!
And you say
STOP!
And you say.....
Track Name: Wait
Wait for me there and I'll meet you
It might take a year, don't let it defeat you
Summer is gone, and the fallen leaves
Clutter the ground, 'neath the sleeping trees
Wait for me there, and I'll hold you
There in the air, I'll enfold you
Towards the end of the day, when the air is still
When your supper is done, and you've had your fill
Wait for me there.....
Wait for me there, and I'll meet you
It might take a year, don't let it defeat you
I'm never gone, though your mind says so
I am not gone, close your eyes
Track Name: Rational Mind
Follow me through
To the end of the line
When we leave this damn train
Will be right on time
As we leave the station
And we leave the confines
Of the rational mind
Dreaming again
You caught me dreaming again
It's summer again
And the stars are all out
Tell me a story about
The other side
Of the rational mind
Finish your meal
And grab your coat
This old town
Is just about the explode
I don't wanna be here
When the rubber hits the road
Back to the rational mind
