Lenten Rose 04:04
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)

Laura Leigh 06:05
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

Raid 03:43
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the shore And the children are all grown And the water's turned to bone Synchronous and syncopated This old world is so outdated You stay here and I'll go trade it in for you He lit a fire in her eye And the smoke blew out to sea There's a castle in my heart We can live there when we die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

Jane 06:15
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

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.....

Wait 04:34
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
8.
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
