Track Name: Masterpiece
I should be writing my masterpiece instead I’m falling to pieces. I should be falling in love but instead I’m flirting with diseases.
There's a fantasy where I stand and I'm walking along in the sand. The illusion is never broke but where do fantasies go?
I should be writing my masterpiece instead I’m falling to pieces. I should be falling in love but instead I’m flirting with diseases.
There's a fantasy on the wire and my heart is up for hire. You said it's everything that you hoped but where do fantasies go?
do do do
bop bop bop bah....
There's a fantasy where I stand and a world of free time in my hands. It's a bubble that's never popped but when do fantasies stop?
I should be writing my masterpiece instead I’m falling to pieces.I should be falling in love but instead I’m flirting with diseases.
bop bop bop bop bah....
Track Name: Dancing Like Money
Every move is turning away, jumping jack backwards everyday. Jumping jack backwards, jumping jack.
If it's not easy then why don't you cry ? You're crackin' a smile for an alibi, there's a crack in your smile.
Connect the dots of your track marks. Sad bunnies hop.Your dancing like money,dancing like money.
Every step is further away between your heart and your legs it's a maze. Between your heart and your legs.
Your saving the monsters so you can pretend, the jungle gym memory it never ends. The jungle gym memory.
Connect the dots of your track marks. Sad bunnies hop.Your dancing like money, dancing like money.
Track Name: Frozen Rain
Outside my window watch the world ebb and flow. Another blurry vision, it's beautiful and strange.
The only thing between you and me is this pane/pain.
Frozen rain, you're all mixed up. You always change when you hit the ground. We all fall down.
Born inside a storm caught between the warm and the cold. Elements in motion, a little piece of within.
The only thing between you and me is this skin.
Frozen rain, were all mixed up. You always change when you hit the ground. We all fall down.
Were all the same on the inside. Let the outside evaporate.
We all fall down.....
Track Name: Crying in Public
Seems like we're always saying goodbye, not afraid to show the street my feelings.
Black homeless woman says "Why you cryin?", her skin is a map to the wise.
I care so much that I don't give a shit. Thats why im crying in public.
Stick me anywhere on the globe there's a bomb that's about to explode.
I'm already white and out of place and now tears are running down my face.
I care so much that i don't give a shit. Thats why im crying in public.
Seems like we're always saying goodbye, thats skin is a map to the wise.
Track Name: Sugar Fox
Sugar Fox, you could have been anything that anyone could dream. Sugar Fox, candy magic balanced on a beam. Sugar Fox.
Sugar Fox, watchin' the changes of my little life. Sugar Fox, golden fire melting in the sky, white feathers at your side, the mirror in your eyes.
I'm the only one that can really see what you were born to be. You look an awful mess but you're so sweet.
Golden fire melting in the sky, white feathers at your side, the mirror in your eyes.
Sugar Fox.
Track Name: Missing Cat
You were so pretty, perched on the back of a couch, like a kitty hawk. But where are you now?
Ohh missing cat, you know they want you back. Ohh missing cat.
On a nightshade stroll did you join the feline circus, with a feather behind your ear?
Ohh missing cat, you know they want you back. Ohh missing cat.
Maybe a four wheeled monster tucked you in. Goodnight have a big sleep, pristine perfect pause/paws.
Track Name: Dream Dictionary
I got drunk with my sister and we crawled beneath an overpass. There was a shotgun in between us and the scene was changing fast.And then came along a bear and it filled us both with fear, so I pushed it over the edge and then it was dead. Was it all in my head?
Dream dictionary tell me what does it mean. Dream Dictionary I don't know what to believe. Dream dictionary.
Then there was a violent monkey, it was trying to steal my boots. And when I kicked it to go away, well then it was dieing too. And the cops were coming soon so I jumped down from the moon but the elephants were loose they had escaped from the zoo. I didn't know what to do.
Dream dictionary tell me what does it mean. Dream Dictionary I don't know what to believe. Dream dictionary.
It was so real, it was surreal.
I got drunk with my sister.
Track Name: Thin Air
I turned down the volume then I listened up. I could hear life and death sharing the same song. Turning, burning...
Then they disappeared in thin air, then they disappeared in thin air.
When I put the blindfold on look out for the within. Then I saw her eyes on the horizon. Winking, thinking.....
Then she disappeared in thin air, then she disappeared in thin air. Always almost there, thin air. I'd love to disappear in thin air.
Track Name: Jealous Sun
Make a wish it's hanging on a string in the sky, the Sun is dreaming too. Fantasies of what it might be like to say goodnight, just a wink or two but morning comes too soon, I'm jealous of the Moon
Tired of burning up into a million sparks of life, knowing there's an end. Watch the planets pass me by but never stop to chat, I guess I could use a friend.
The cosmic social butterfly that's you. I'm jealous of the Moon
Revolve around me while you pull at the sea. And you're such a lady, I turn from gold to green with envy.
When you're at your highest lovers bath beneath your glow, those silly romantic fools! But when i shine my brightest they all run for shelter shade they think i'm hot and cruel.
But they all think you're cool. I’m jealous of the Moon. I should tell the truth, I'm in love with you.
ahhhhh ooooohhhh
Track Name: The Moment's Gone
You can hold my hand but I wouldn't hold your breath. We can count the sand if you want something that never ends.
When the clouds move along I'll take my final bow but for now let's write this song until the moment's gone.
I can see the light when the stars align. You can find the night, all you have to do is close your eyes.
When the clouds move along I'll take my final bow but for now let's write this song until the moment's gone.
We can build a house made of love and doubt. We can plant a garden just to pull the weeds out.
When the clouds move along I'll take my final bow but for now let's write this song until the moment's gone.
