Track Name: American Family
How can I be your man
without a family plan?
my roots are gone from me
it’s such a tragedy

so what…now
I’m not…allowed
comfort…dignity
without family
lost and wandering
I’m left wondering
is it you? is it me?
is anyone listening?

I’m puzzled and I’m torn
I’m wading through the storm
I make community
with everyone I meet

what’s wrong…here?
dissonance…fear
broken ties, broken lives
abandon warren!
straight walk…all alone
make my…new home
A new life of discovery
american family
Track Name: Brave New World
brave new world
brave new child
sink or swim
in the wild
cuz it’s a war
on your mind
sink or swim
there you’ll find

a quiet message
a secret resourcefulness
planted deeply
in your own knowingness

trade your life
for this love
its not below
its not above
no place to hide
no where to go
a paradise
inside the host

without oppression
blinking at nothing
sit in the silence
of your own ignorance

here I’m waiting for you
in this mighty fire
this old kingdoms crumbling
its just you and I
ask no favor from you
just a little time
to be with you shortly
as the phoenix flies

so ride easy my old friend
its been so long and now we meet again

brother you’ve got all the fire
to burn our bodies of our own desire

so ride easy my old friend
its been so long and now we meet again
my old master can’t you tell?
I’m sure to drink from your deepest well

demons sleep here with me

wake me up
drinking from the brimming cup
and share this too
the oldest stories are brand new to me
Track Name: Skinwalker
son this is your quest
take this map north
follow your stars
fractal skies turn
into you gods
listen for hope
and a clear sign
make your camp well

your own silence
becomes violence
no more shyness
just pure defiance

take your new shape
on these four legs
smell this new air
hear everything
stalk evil doors
walk forrest floors
bath in the new moon
silver and full

your own silence
becomes violence
no more shyness
king of defiance
Track Name: Like an Animal
There’s a feeling
in my chest
its a power
at its best
stops at nothing
don’t know why
it keeps hunting
like an animal

so damn tired and yet still inspired
if your one of us stand tall
as your brothers kin a generation

this change I’ve made takes me
all the way to your front door
as your waiting for me
our strength moves through our spines
giving us electric sight in the darkest night

lock the windows
close the doors
another soldier
home from war
suicidal
wandering
picking pockets
like an animal

so damn tired and yet still inspired
if your one of us stand tall
as your mothers kin a revolution

this pain I take with me
all the way to your front door
as your waiting for me
our strength moves through our spines
giving us electric sight in the darkest night
Track Name: Some Kind of Something
we walked into the wind
and felt it winding in
there’s nothing wrong with this
its truly…hit or miss
ya know
we’ll take it slow
before you can plead to forgive

your character improves
with your elated moods
on with the peaceful lies
that get you, from where you
sit on the floor
like you can ignore,
a passion which dies to be born

but some kind of angel
would let me untangle
my hectic life, a life like this
its some kind of angel
to make me unstable
in all the right ways
these sun rays go all ways
just like we all walk in place
as in a dream

we wandered far and wide
with no more alibies
the sun was big and low
the colors….went from…
orange to red and up ahead
no place to rest just move on

we were as thick as thieves
at odds with everything
they call us cast aways
a system….built to….
put us down, and keep us low
town after town we moved on

but some kind of angel
would help me untangle
my wretched heart and my mind
some kind of angel
her body was water dancing like fire
a flame so cold it shakes me still
just like an old winter chill
I’ll never forget.
Track Name: Show Your Love
can you recognize
your own family tree
walking all around
in the big city
well you can show your love
you can be a fool
you can be apart
cuz we honor you

divorce the spectacle
embrace your sovereignty
beware of the strategy
to make us all enemies

beware, the hungry ghosts
don’t allow yourself to be host
eating from the poison vine
infecting all of human kind

a disease of fear and of hate
to which cabbalas celebrate
walk carefully on this ice
contempt is a fool’s paradise
Track Name: Rainy Day
the morning starts with pouring rain
beneath the sheets we should stay and stay

I bring you in and hold you close
you hug me tight with your breath so slight

its times like these that we deserve
wind and rain and a place to lay

whisper low and tell me things
tell me all of your strangest dreams

as you fall back to sleep
i tuck you in and make you tea
and still i love you now
its this i can’t ignore
nevermind
Im falling for you like never before

thunder pounds as water falls
make the call skipping work today

we go into the movie store
to pick out something we can both ignore

laying there you read to me
a pretty voice that I love to hear

with the clouds some are dismayed
but for us it is the perfect day

as i fall back to sleep
a peaceful dream carries me
i feel so thoughtless now resting in your arms
for a while
the rain is pouring like never before
