Track Name: Cold Hair
where are you walking? where did you go?
if I walked out of the door would you follow?
hold on to anything that's there to hold
sing to the silent spring, her hair feels cold
stop now and wait up, please hold the phone
runnin' as fast as love leaves you alone
voice in the white room stays in the air
now I have caught you, wait for me there
hold on to anything that's there to hold
sing to the silent spring, her hair feels cold
Track Name: Your Eyes
hold my breath so deep inside, don't let it out until you arrive
moving slow across the beach, soon you'll be within my reach
I believe you have the key, love on Earth must be
put your trust in something strange, we must change
upon the cliff you take my hand, and then we fall into the sand
waves are crashing on the rocks, I believe that time could stop

too much is in your eyes
Track Name: Nightmares
the facts don't match up to what you've been telling me
I've watched you play along with what you thought that you should be
I can remember when you were just a worker
before it all came down and you committed murder
you should stay at home tonight
you should lock your door tonight
I'm not right and I'm hungry for a fight
take me to the courthouse and let me touch your badge
you're digging for gold and a soul that you don't have
treason is committed and you are not a friend
take another pill and let the nightmares begin
the neverending surgery of which I take part
see me hold the scalpel, we kiss as I cut into your heart
Track Name: Mega Dad
when I look at the world, see tomorrow's children
things don't look so good
waiting for the mega dad to come and we'll be saved
the bad man forever washed away, our thirst shall be quenched
when I look at the world, see tomorrow's children
things don't look so good
waiting for the mega dad to come and we'll be saved
the bad man forever washed away, our thirst shall be quenched
the oceans flood the desert
you seem to have rage, check out my new carousel
spin-dry your cry and fly so high goodbye
emotions run wild like dogs, together as we gather logs
return to our ancient lives, the moment has arrived
the oceans flood the desert
the bad man forever washed away
our thirst shall be quenched
mega dad will come back to save
Track Name: For Sale (Waiting For You)
come to me with your face sunken in and pale
my arms are for sale
breathing together the air moves in and out
I scream and I shout
I've been thinking of you for such a long time
I wish you were mine
come to me with your face sunken in and pale
my arms are for sale
breathing together the air moves in and out
I scream and I shout
look for me there tonight in your sleep
it's been several weeks
wait for the dawn when the sun shines down on us
it's you that I trust
I've been thinking of you for such a long time
I wish you were mine
I've been dreaming of you for such a long time
I wish you were mine
Track Name: Special Friends
I am dumb from holding you I think it's time I put you down forevermore
and what's in store for me?
this game has gone too far I'm tired of knowing where you are
and what's the matter with my laughter?
we remain expressionless, how could we invest in this new distraction,
the arms that I am trapped in?

there are things that I could say
but why should I speak anyway?

stop the time and touch my skin, why should I speak anyway?
follow me, just follow me
stop the time and touch my skin, we will turn to special friends
you've heard before, you've heard that before
I am dumb from holding you I think it's time I put you down forevermore
and what's in store for me?
Track Name: Poison Ivy
you tried to punish me with your attitude
I was wearing my white armor
something black was breathing on my face
covered with some kind of flowered dress
who is this, they cannot hear my cry
poison ivy on the roadway
Track Name: Vagabond
boyish features wither up and wilt
the girls you used to know have lost their milk
cheating off somebody else's paper
then you realize it's part of nature
to have to give and take and talk
live and cry and lie and walk
and gather up the air to make a sound
rocketships and puritans are gone
the military let you sing your songs
I drove into the fortress of your eyes
and crashed into the things that I despise
you have to give and take and talk
live and cry and lie and walk
and gather up the air to make a sound
worthless jokes and empty jars of oil
your futuristic overalls are soiled
the sweating glands are deeply standing guard
they soak you when the sun is shining hard
and save you when your raft is sinking fast
the waves are ripping flags off of the mast
sing the words no one can hear
sing the words no one can hear
sing the words no one can hear
sing the words
sing the words with me
no one will hear us
Track Name: Sophisticated
try to act sophisticated just take a look at me
my career is fun related and just what you want to be
I really don't care what you listen to
why should I think that I am better than you?
everything's so easy 'cause I'm just passing through tonight
there's no way to stick around you know you've got to move
I look around and see the people and what they want to prove
I'm not in a competition you are the magical ghost
I think someone's doing dirty and no they've got too close
Track Name: Cracks In The Door
jewelry is for women, you are just a girl
adorn yourself exotically, a little boy's string of pearls
I can make you become just like a child
the bedroom isn't pretty, animals are wild
tears fall to the floor cracks in the door
tears fall to the floor cracks in the door
stop the planet moving, rushing through the stars
paint the wall with moonbeams, sheik of Zanzibar
greet the poor boy's mother and take him away
go to one another, there you will stay
tears fall to the floor cracks in the door
tears fall to the floor cracks in the door
Track Name: The Distance
you are right on time
this love is like the sweetest wine
when will you tell me that you are a part of this?
there's a distance between our kiss
there's a distance between our kiss
can't remember the feeling of bliss
fall into the night with the light
and sing into the dark
rise into the heat with me
come on, let's get burned
I need some feeling
it's not a question - it's not a language
there's a distance between our kiss
can't remember the feeling of bliss
there's a distance between our kiss
the smell of jewels dangling
in the summer moonbeams by the pool dancing
we're clapping our hands, gazing at each other
where are you going?
Track Name: Visions
your voice, your sound, your pitch, your volume - is this your image?
we are having visions tonight
we do you belong with no light?
where will I find you, where will you go?
following your footsteps through the snow
stay silent, they love you that way
there's something wrong I can feel it today
we're not in control of change, we can just destroy
I can make this fall apart, I can lose my voice
what do you see when you're looking around?
what do you see when I'm making a sound?
we are having visions tonight
where do you belong with no light?
where will I find you, where will you go?
following your footsteps through the snow
Track Name: Wolf Prints (Delicate Design)
why are you trying to upset this delicate design?
this is truly something you're hiding behind
no disillusion - we're destroying the heart
no future contact - where can we go? where can we go?
following footsteps in the snow
open the kingdom - she has arrived
she is our savior - she'll save us from the night
Track Name: Quicksand
is this the city or is this the quicksand?
this feels like bad town, the bad man and the big man
I've got your number, you are in my contact
let's get together, you're shaking would you stop that?
is this a fantasy or is this real time?
where did the love go? I know you can feel mine

hello my dear - baby can you hear me?
I made the call - and I want you near me
Track Name: Ancient Love
temperature is falling
eyes are growing dim
steaming breath from within
you have been selected
I will become you
nothing is protected
I am numb from you
there are lies reverberating
the air is petrified
and from my telescope
your face electrifies
it's like the ancient love
the fairy tale parade
we fly on beds of gold
atop the blue cascade
you don't have to hide
love is destiny
can I survive?
you are next to me
it's like the ancient love
you don't have to love
Track Name: Take It Away (Forever)
the memories have stained my love
and turned into grey
there's nothing to do for me
there's nothing to say
so this is the final touch
our pleasures will end
our love has frozen over and over again

take my love - take it away forever
take my life - frozen in time forever

we'll never speak together
your voice will silence to dust
how can it be like this?
the choice was open to us
