    • Lyrics

      I want to meet you where the river overflows your thoughts and dreams
      Take me to the fountain, behind the veil
      Where the light would shine
      In the cold remember

      There was a peace
      That came at night
      When I was your candle, Julie
      I was your light

      I was your candle, Julie
      You knew how to light me up
      Burning at both ends for you Julie
      I wasn't bright enough

      Ah, give me a break!

      I'm just a puddle on the ground
      And i'm the fake who feels no pain
      When you walk right through me

      There was a peace
      That came at night
      When I was your candle, Julie
      I was your alright
      When I was your light

      I was your candle, Julie
      You knew how to light me up
      Burning at both ends for you Julie
      I wasn't bright enough

      You burned me out
      and left me far away
      But you still burn me out today
      (You burned him out
      and left him far away)
      But you still burn me out today

      I was your candle, Julie
      You knew how to light me up
      Burning at both ends for you Julie
      I wasn't bright enough

    • Lyrics

      Sunshine,
      Wise me up to your ways
      Start me off with just your name
      I guessed & called you Desiree

      You're turnin' into Sunny
      Either way you're just a kid
      And i've seen you on the boulevard

      CHORUS
      The world can wait, just slow down
      Big city, slow down and let go
      And when you let go, and everything is lost
      You got a lot

      Sunset,
      She's lighting up a cigarette
      The visionary strategist
      She's pickin' out a costume dress
      The win is in your smile, and kid
      You give it to me every time

      The world can wait, just slow down
      Big city, slow down and let go
      And when you let go, and everything is lost
      You got a lot

      Painted on a canvass
      On an ordinary white
      Sunny drew from memory
      Her legacy in lights

      And she let go
      And when she let go
      The image that showed
      was the picture of heaven, the image of God

      The world can wait, just slow down
      Big city, slow down and let go
      And when you let go, and everything is lost
      You got a lot

    • Lyrics

      Hey, hey Mama
      When your world gets colder
      put your head on my shoulder
      I wanna get you...

      In the shadow of youth
      Where my dreams came to life
      Through the window of truth
      In the blink of an eye
      I grew fond of a girl
      Who was lonely and wild
      She’d been hurt by her father
      And I learned to stand up tall

      Hey, hey Mama
      When your world gets colder
      Put your head on my shoulder
      I wanna get you high

      In the shadow of truth
      Where my dreams go to die
      To a widow of youth
      Who had grown very high
      And grew fond of a girl
      Who was lonely and wise
      She’d been burned by her father
      And I learned to stand up tall

      Hey, hey Mama
      When your world gets colder
      Put your head on my shoulder
      I wanna get you high
      Hey, hey mama
      When you feel neglected
      Put your head on my chest
      I wanna get you high

    • Lyrics

      In the falls I get frustrated
      There is water coming hard
      And all your mistakes and bad excuses
      Are weighing into who you are

      Then I see a golden sunrise
      It brings a little hope & pulls us through
      The after burn of dying stars trails into the great unknown
      Like I've been dragging you around

      You are heavy, You should know I love you
      You are heavy, You should know I feel that weight
      You are heavy, You should know I love you
      You are heavy, And you should know I feel the weight

      Well I'll be coming down the mountainside
      With your name on my lips
      Cause you been burning through my veins
      To think I carried you when you were lame
      And then I see the golden sunrise
      It brings a little hope & pulls me through
      The after burn of dying stars trails into the great unknown
      Like I been dragging you around

      You are heavy, You should know I love you
      You are heavy, You should know I feel that weight
      You are heavy, You should know I love you
      You are heavy, And you should know I feel the weight

      Tell me how Evelyn and Vicky, yellow
      Haven't eased Abby's voice yet
      Harming Evie-Ann's vision
      You'd hear each and every yell

    • Lyrics

      Wedding bells ringing in the street
      Making noise
      Before you are the keeper
      Hold to the giver

      Strike your heart, The chord of faith
      Speak the truth, There is not another one
      You've got to get so down, don't you
      to look up and see the sun
      (Ann-Marie your time has come)
      Don't let people's hate scare you
      They'll steal your spirit
      And the search for you has just begun

      Megaphones, preach 'em to their knees
      It's a noise parade
      Instead of spreading your disease
      Find the cure

      Strike your heart, It's the chord of faith
      Speak the truth, There is not another one
      Hey, you've got to get
      so down, don't you
      to look up and see the sun
      (Ann-Marie your time has come)
      Don't let people's hate scare you
      They'll steal your spirit
      And the search for you has just begun

      Let down your hair
      Cause I wanna know who you are
      when no one is around
      Girl, do your worst
      Show 'em how to feel again
      The movement's in your heart

      Hey, you've got to get
      so down, don't you
      to look up and see the sun
      (Ann-Marie your time has come)
      Don't let people's hate scare you
      They'll steal your spirit
      And the search for you
      is just beginning
      (Ann-Marie, see the sun
      The search for you has just begun)

      I've been feeling so tired
      Been feeling so tired
      Feeling so tired when the sun shines
      I've been looking alive
      Been looking alive
      Looking alive on the outside

      I can't feel you heavy on mind
      When nothing's on my mind
      When I'm not thinking
      I can't see you lying in my bed
      When nothing's in my head
      When I'm not looking

      I've been wasting away
      Been wasting away
      Wasting away that you'd want me
      I'm just sand in a glass
      And I'm slipping so slow
      Well I'd like to believe that

      I can't feel you heavy on mind
      When nothing's on my mind
      When I'm not thinking
      I can't see you lying in my bed
      When nothing's in my head
      When I'm not looking

      I've been wasting away
      Been wasting away
      Wasting away that you'd want me

      This heavy feeling goin' round
      Got people hiding underground
      I sit in silence with your ghost
      I am afraid of you the most

      Cause you move just like a hurricane
      I search for shelter from the rain
      When you move just like a hurricane
      I can't get near you, babe

      These petty feelings got a way
      And come slipping from you, I should say
      You shake the bookcase from the wall
      But I'm not afraid of you at all

      Cause you move just like a hurricane
      I search for shelter from the rain
      When you move just like a hurricane
      I can't get near you, babe

      Cause I gotta know the places that you go
      To let your chaos grow in the arms of desire
      And I gotta know the reason that you cry
      There's safety in your eye, but your tears are like fire

      Cause you move just like a hurricane
      I search for shelter from the rain
      When you move just like a hurricane
      I can't get near you, babe

    • Lyrics

      Deep inside your heart
      Are you who you thought you’d be
      Beauty with age, nothing more
      Everything else is vanity

      But the man in the mirror
      When you’re cleaning your teeth
      When you’re plugging your hair
      Is easier to see

      I could never be what you want me to be
      There is not a cure for the problem you see
      I could never give what you wanted
      Though you thought you got the best of me

      I’m running out of time
      To leave a holy legacy
      Stealing the day from the night
      And i’m begging for harmony

      But dreams of a boy
      Are the same as a man
      Though his vision gets worse
      It’s easier to see

      I could never be what you want me to be
      There is not a cure for the problem you see
      I could never give what you wanted
      Though you thought you got the best of me

      Jenny, if I could see how the years were gonna change your smile
      Though I might linger for a little while
      If only to hold back your tears
      I’d press on cause i’ve seen how the new day uncovers remedies
      For the heartache you’ve suffered on account of me
      And the road will get narrow, we push on

      We write this story as we go
      We can’t take back the stones we throw
      We are immovable as one

      Jenny, when we are wise to the simple nature of our sin
      I believe we uncover new life again
      Now the road will get narrow, we push on

      We write this story as we go
      We can’t take back the stones we throw
      We are immovable as one

      I can still remember how the sun fell on your face
      The passage that you quoted when you said you’d never walk away

      We write this story as we go
      We can’t take back the stones we throw
      We are immovable as one

      Little flower speak in tongues I never hear
      With a vase for feet come walk with me
      Through the wooden door
      When it creaks cover your ears

      Let the yellow light
      Make yellow eyes with you

      Whisper in my ears
      Hide the things that I don’t like about you away
      Scream into my face
      Tell me how I never looks at you
      Makes you the loneliest
      But you love me anyway

      Run away with me
      When you can’t feel at all
      When you just don’t believe in me
      Underneath the stars
      When they shine don’t close your eyes
      Let the yellow dawn
      Awake your mind again

      Whisper in my ears
      Hide the things that I don’t like about you away
      Scream into my face
      Tell me how I never looks at you
      Makes you the loneliest
      But you love me anyway

      Turn around, my love
      When you can’t see the fear inside your eyes
      I know it’s there

      Whisper in my ear
      Hide the things that I don’t like about you away
      Scream into my face
      Tell me how I never looks at you
      Makes you the loneliest
      But you love me anyway

      Bella’s a loser and she’s living all alone
      The future is her home
      She’s getting into something with her eyes closed
      Leave off your glasses you can try to play the fool
      The future is a mine shaft

      It’s gonna get you down

      Our tears of silence flood the empty streets
      Where people used to sleep
      Now we have cleaned up all our violence
      Here living water is a scarce commodity
      The future of our children...

      It’s gonna get you down

      Tell me your story
      I wanna read upon your heart
      Tacit and boring
      Reads like an epic from the start

      “I don’t want to live forever, no
      I just want to find a good way to go
      I don’t want to beat a trending,
      Never ending road”

      Lend me a moment
      Something that pain cannot erase
      When you were younger
      Did you believe in dying days?

      Oh I want to know you
      Way beyond the veil of vision, far
      And deep in the pages
      Get lost in the space of distance stars

      I don’t want to live forever, no
      I just want to find a good way to go
      I don’t want to beat a trending,
      Never ending road

      Do you believe in dying days?
      Do you believe the stars could change?
      Do you?

      I don’t want to live forever, no
      I just want to find a good way to go
      I don’t want to beat a trending,
      Never ending road

      Prodigal daughter
      Won't you come back home
      Come back home & I will kiss you
      Jessi, the time has come to pick and choose
      I chose you, now come and get me

      When the curtain falls and laughter dies
      And people's eyes are looking
      On another muse
      I'll be missing you
      I'll miss you

      Like a child we bicker and fight
      Stay out of the light
      In dark shadows you show me your bad side
      Stars collide when the planets align
      It's a flaw in design, but you can't see it
      Show me your good side

      Woman, what's your story?
      Who's your father?
      He could show me

      In the veins of karma culture
      You can earn and honest living
      But if you lose what you've been giving
      Your heart is cheating,
      but you are blood in the veins of karma culture

      In the sun and the rain
      When we're really all the same
      Upon the righteous and the damned
      We feel the pains of karma culture

      Up on Mount Karma
      When I was younger
      My life flashed before my eyes
