Track Name: Don't Put Me Down
nothings gonna bring me down
i'm higher than ive ever been
people try to put me pown
but i don't listen to them
moneys not around
i'm having fun anyway
i'm never coming down
you'll have to come and high to play with me
Track Name: The Dreamers
a long time ago
there were two friends
walking down a road
they came up to a fork
which way do they go?
one takes the high road
and the other the low.

do you know
what the future holds
looking in your crystal ball?
time is running forward
like children down a hall
their laughter echoes to me
bouncing off the walls
Track Name: Mouth Party
put your money where your mouth is
a special offer for a limited crime
buying up 6.9 billion
eat them up two at a time
credit cards buy reality stars
punch it in the tivo
yeah you know what i mean
put your money where your mouth is
and flip the pages of your magazine.
Track Name: Pretty Flower
you pretty flower
you look like no other
you have this magic power
a spell you put me under
pretty flower i pick you
Track Name: Where You Going?
where you going with that idea in your head?
where you going with that gun in your hand?
where you going? you can't see straight, man.
where you going?
Track Name: Flashy Bird
the flashy bird loves word play
costume jewelery and flies away
a gentle breeze through her hair
sensationally without a care
i tried to hold on to it
but now its gone
i tried to float on it
but sank like a stone
the waning moon fills with dread
dreams still haunting me under my bed
i'm puzzle pieces with no plans
to be solved neatly with caring hands
i tried to hold on to it
but now its gone
i tried to float on it
but sank like astone
all my plans...
Track Name: Surprise Surprise
the sun did rise
surprise surprise
what'd you think it was gonna do?
the look in your eyes
surprise surprise
well, nothing hurts you like the truth
baby does cry
goodbye goodbye
baby's been in better moods
the sun did rise
surprise surprise
what'd you think it was gonna do?
Track Name: Time Is A Crime
i'm tripping up the stairs
that were never there
stumbling after you
i'm talking to the birds
i'm choking on my words
acting like a crazy dude
i'm going outta my mind
i sure am taking my time
a scenic route all the way to
my thoughts all weigh a ton
look honey i'm no fun
anymore what should i do?

time is a crime
its the law that kills all
time is a lie
that the truth resolves

i watch you unawares
walking in your underwear
with smiling eyes
i'm calling out your name
i hope you're doing the same
under a moonlit sky
c h r i s t
i need you complete me
i love you i love you
i'm tripping up the stairs
i know i put them there
stumbling after you
Track Name: Less Than Three
it started long ago
somewhere within the sea
two hearts that beat as one
you can call it <3
this is math
geometric shapes
when they began to speak
a language all their own
a solutions what they seek
this is math
understanding you
means understanding me
i know its hard to do
its irrationality
this is math
it started long ago
somewhere within the sea
two hearts that beat as one
you can call it <3
this is math
Track Name: Oh Belovéd
you came to me tarred and feathered
wondering what you did wrong
crying to me that you just want to be loved
i'm telling that some people
just don't like the tune of your song
and you're crying to me that you just want to be loved
by everybody
by everyone
Track Name: Endless Night
here comes the endless night
without a guiding light
see theres no one to save you
so save yourself child
save yourself
headlights cresting the top of the hill
can you trust the man behind the wheel?
can you ever trust again?
save yourself child
save yourself

i see the world in three different shades
black white and grey
are the colors of truth
that will never change
all of the words that i say
sing them in song
and the truth will never go away

flip through the daily news
what have you got to lose?
peace of mind and a right to chose
so save yourself child
save yourself
Track Name: The Beat
a broken heart
and a burning tree
these are things
that are changing me
we move to the beat
now some may say
that you cannot win
when the odds are
stacked against them
we move to the beat
you know we are
so very free
to march along
with our own two feet
we move to the beat
Track Name: For All Time
its been written on a wall
buried in tomb for a million years
waiting for howard carter to tell us the news
but we already knew
it said baby i love you
and baby you love me too
the indians
what did they do?
but kiss the the land and touch the sky with their minds
yeah baby you're the one for me
and if i die too
just lay me down right by your side and kiss my eyes and say its alright
cause baby i love you
and baby you love me too
yeah baby its for all time
yeah baby its for all time
