Until We Fly

There's a little of the setting sun in everyone

Whether it's the slow march of time or the sudden crack of a cold gun

There's a little asking why in every cry

Until we fly.

Let go, body and soul

The sun is gonna shine forever when you go

There's a shadow of a skeleton in everyone

Whether it's the slow swell of pain or the final crash of a heart's drum

There's a little of goodbye in every sigh

Until we fly

Let go, body and soul

The sun is gonna shine forever

Bombs

Every time I look around

I see my reflection in the glass

Bombs exploding in the distance you hear

Making potholes in the grass

My heart is weary and no one sees

when I walk through the door

How can you treat me with such greased-up ease

Feels like nails on the floor

I am poor in my riches now,

I'm sad in my joy,

I'm bound in my freedom

I walk around oblivious to the scene

never looking to the street

My crown is golden and can't you see

The true reason you stare at me

I am poor in my riches now,

I'm sad in my joy, I'm bound in my freedom

Can you see the fire in me

The coals touch my lips,

singe my fingers

Oh I love you with a pure heart

Screams

Silver lining on the clouds above

Moon is shining rays of blood

The beast is moving,

we're stuck in the mud

Man is hungry,

keep marchin' on

In and out,

day to day

My soul bleeds on the curb

In and out,

it's all the same

The monster feeds on your hurt

The skin is peelin' into dust

My voice is prayin' until I hush

My mind is cringin' at the sound

My feet are scrapin' on the ground

We start to scream

and some will cry

Some will break their fists

on the sky

No room to breathe,

don't even try

Throw up your hands

In and out,

day to day

The smell is getting on my nerves

In and out,

it's all the same

Break my chains to this earth

Going Down

It's never smooth sailin' for people like me.

I'll always be the one whose net comes back empty.

I get the sinking feeling I'm lost at sea.

I've missed the lifeboat, and I'm goin' down.

I thought my soul had found safe harbor in you,

Thought I'd discovered an island of truth.

But lovin' you is painting a sinking ship.

It may be beautiful, but it's goin' down.

I wanna go down, I wanna go down, I wanna go down.

I shot the albatross that made you stay.

I'm screamin' for a lifeline, drowning in your wake.

Lovin' you is painting a sinking ship.

Baby, it was beautiful, but it's goin' down, said it's goin' down.

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink

Can't Get Enough of Your Blues

When you are happy, I am happy

When you are laughin', I am too.

When you are cryin', I'll be cryin'

'Cause I just can't get enough of your blues

When you are dancin', I'll be dancin'

When you are singin', I am too

But when you're lonely, I'll be lonely

'Cause I just can't get enough of your blues

Don't matter how low you go, I just can't say no, oh

When you are smilin', I am smilin'

When you are flyin', I am too

But when you're down and out

I will be down, down, down

'Cause I just can't get enough of your blues

Your blues, gimme your blues, Gimme just a little more blues

200-Proof God

You keep talking about believing in

Something more than the pleasure of sin

And wanting someone to edit the truth

To override your will and make it easy for you

You want a 200-proof god,

Clear as ever but far as Heaven

Want a 200-proof god

To pull you through the pain,

Don't wake you in the mornin'

You keep fighting with buying into

A grace that does not depend on you

Feeding your fear by repeating the past

Proving God is there by bringing down His wrath

You want a 200-proof god,

Clear as ever but far as Heaven

Want a 200-proof god

To pull you through the pain,

Don't wake you in the mornin'

Don't wake you in the mornin'

Love pursues you every waking moment

Gonna strike your demons down

Yeah you could be consumed before you even know it

You could drown

Summer of Love

"What is your name?" he said,

"and can I have your number?"

She drove home and danced around the house.

After he called her, there was never any question -

They were going off to Paris someday.

He played his green guitar, and she wrote him a love song,

Tried to feed him dinner every night.

He called her beautiful and listened to her story

She showed everyone the ring he made

In the summer of love

The summer of love

In the summer of love

The summer of love

It wasn't hard to see that music was their shelter

Even when the money didn't come.

They learned to live on dreams and midnight conversations

Driving down a dusty Texas road

In the summer of love

The summer of love

In the summer of love

The summer of love

She looked at magazines and smiled at all the babies

Moved a crib into the music room

He'd play a lullaby and she would fall asleep

Singin' to the child in her arm

Mary, Mary

Mary, Mary quite contrary

How does your garden grow?

Solitary sanctuary

With your pretty dreams all in a row.

Daisy chain of good intentions

Overtaken by the thyme

Bees buzzin' round, takin' all the sweetness from the passion vine.

Mary, Mary visionary

You see morning glories blooming in the snow

Imaginary revolutionary

Your seeds of change get scattered when the wind blows.

Daisy chain of good intentions

Overtaken by the thyme

Bees buzzin' round, takin' all the sweetness from the Passion vine.

Mary, Mary ordinary

Where did all your flowers go?

Necessary mercenary

You can't reap what you don't grow.

Daisy chain of good intentions

Overtaken by the thyme

Bees buzzin' round takin' all the sweetness from the passion vine.

100

How do I love thee, let me count the ways

A million, a billion, so many I can't even say

How do I love thee, at least a hundred ways

One hundred

When I met you I was half of me and you were half of you

But when we said “I do”, we made one from two; now you are

A hundred sonnets sleeping in my head

A hundred fireflies dancing in my bed

A hundred reasons to just stay home instead

One hundred

How do I love thee, let me count the ways

A billion, a trillion, so many I can't even say

How many kisses I'll give you every day

One hundred

Now what we have together ain't a dime-store novel rendezvous

But I still count the hours ‘til the time I can show you:

A hundred sonnets sleeping in my head

A hundred fireflies dancing in my bed

A hundred reasons to just stay home instead

One hundred One hundred

Stay

Set me aside, take me away

Leaving only Your face

Make what I do and what I say

Pieces of Your grace

Take me away

and stay Spirit stay

Free my mind and free my soul

Free this temple stone by stone

Tear me down and as I go

Come and make Your home

Take me away

and stay Spirit stay

If there is love within me, it's You

If there is fire within me, it's You

If there is beauty in me, it's You

And You are all I want

Stay

Set me aside, take me away

Leaving only Your face

Make what I do and what I say

Pieces of Your grace

Take me away

And stay Spirit Stay Spirit Stay

Electrify My Eyes

Glamorize, appetize

Tantalize, mesmerize

Fantasize, magnetize

I just wanna look at you

Dehumanize, animalize

Desensitize, compromise

Demoralize, paralyze

I don't wanna look at you

A picture's worth a thousand words that I can't seem to say

My DNA gets in the way

Electrify my eyes Electrify my eyes Electrify

Minimize, legitimize

Rationalize, ritualize

Habitualize, traumatize

I'm not gonna look
