Track Name: Proper Lady
And she swept him off his feet
In the public’s eye it’s a defeat
No proper lady should be caressing
A proper man

And she looks too good for words
That’s her trick or so you’ve heard
No way her charm alone would win
So fine a prize

And she comes all the time
No sir she ain’t refined
Her legs aren’t tied by you
And she lives from within
Full of passion that ain’t a sin
Her legs aren’t tied by you

Her desire drives the beat
When she's hot it’s just the heat
This role playing
Isn't part of her game

Defying the holy books
That douse you by hook by crook
A proper lady knows how to be
A proper lady knows how to be
A proper lady knows how to be
Just how to be

And she comes all the time
No sir she ain’t refined
Her legs aren’t tied by you
And she lives from within
Full of passion that ain’t a sin
Her legs aren’t tied by you

And she lives from within
Full of passion that ain’t a sin
A proper lady knows how to be
A proper lady knows how to be
A proper lady knows how to be
Just how to be
Track Name: So Tired
Lightning bolt reversals
Leave me shattered in their wake
The many small rehearsals
Of your final furious break

Thursday you want me
Friday you disappear
Saturday you miss me
Love script for the insincere

I'm so tired of your swinging

Your yeses and your no's

Your guesses and your woes

Your open and your close
 your I don't knows

I want to love and make love

Give and take love

Have true not fake love

Build not break love

But your words are bad checks
Bouncing fears cheating sex
Only true to your hide and seek
Philosophy for the weak

Thursday you want me
Friday you disappear
Saturday you miss me
Love script for insincere

I'm so tired of your swinging

Your yeses and your no's

Your guesses and your woes

Your open and your close
Your I don't knows

Turning on a dime taking back what you said was mine

I'm so tired of your swinging

Your yeses and your no's

Your guesses and your woes

Your open and your close
Your I don't knows
Track Name: Cliché
Precision shall we leave it at that
I forget it on the welcome mat
Prestigious is who you are
Just like the devil and his cigar

You smoke choke practical joke
Feel you're cherished in every way
Boy it's taking you time to find out
Cliché

Affection is that a section
By election of a reflection
As beings on terra firma
Totally imperma-nent

You smoke choke practical joke
Feel you're cherished in every way
Boy it's taking you time to find out
Cliché

Direction is that buried somewhere
In the cross country trail, if not
There are too many places to look
I think I'll go out, by myself by myself buy myself
A traveler's book

You smoke choke practical joke
Feel you're cherished in every way
Boy it's taking you time to find out
Cliché
Track Name: Fears to Die
Bombs are falling everywhere
And I'm high on despair
Like ants we’re marching two by two
You know you know who

Is there really a god above
With an olive branch and a dove
I think I’ll start up some praying
But then again what am I saying

No rhyme no reason
In this cruel world
No faith no season
For hope
Don't want excuses
Don’t need your lies
Just waiting for the fears to die

Come on open up the news
Watch those who’ve won and those who lose
Point criticize and blame
Line up your words and aim

No rhyme no reason
In this cruel world
No faith no season
For hope
Don't want excuses
Don’t need your lies
Just waiting for the fears to die

Bombs are falling everywhere
And I'm low on despair
I think I’ll start up some praying
But then again what am I saying
Track Name: Leave Me Stranded
Can I be angry or upset
Should I be happy if this is what I get
What if I deserve a better role
Don't want to be a page that you just scroll down

Can I lie or is that unfair
Will speaking the truth help us repair
The damage caused by deep despair

Don't show me mercy I don't need
Don't be nice I beg you please
You're right I'm wrong
I'm weak you're strong
You leave me stranded

Can I cheat or is that against the rules
Should we defeat all them fools
Who interfere just to make a mess
And in the end we just obsess

Can I close my eyes if everyone does
Hide like the joker in a pack of cards
Mind my own business just because

Don't show me mercy I don't need
Don't be nice I beg you please
You're right I'm wrong
I'm weak you're strong
You leave me stranded
Track Name: Mama's Boy
You're just a mama's boy
Who toys with being wild
You're just a mama's boy
Who toys with being wild

Hollow puppet
Naughty naughty child

Left home at 30
Back at 31
World's too risky
You’re comin' undone

Takes courage to rattle the cage
Stand up to mama's outrage
And you don't mean what you say
You’re just mean

You're just a mama's boy
Who toys with being wild
You're just a mama's boy
Who toys with being wild

Hollow puppet
Naughty naughty child

Go on get on home
Rebel in talk alone
Find a job and a wife
Say good-bye to your life

Takes courage to rattle the cage
Stand up to mama's outrage
And you don't mean what you say
You’re just mean

You're just a mama's boy
Who toys with being wild
You're just a mama's boy
Who toys with being wild
Track Name: Wild Sweet Place
Should I give you a reason to come back home
What if all I want is to be alone
You don't know me you should
After so many years I would

The bitter tangle which I fled
Now I'm trying to embrace myself instead
No longer longing for love that will never be
I think of myself as plain history

Oh, bound to find
A wild sweet place
Oh, won't leave behind
Not even a trace

A vague memory floating around
And all that I can feel is a hollow sound
Comes right at me through my fears
Soon as it does you disappear

Oh, bound to find
A wild sweet place
Oh, won't leave behind
Not even a trace
Track Name: Rundown Man
I’ll let you go
Then I’ll come for you
Bring you back
Cause that’s what we always do

Speak of what should be
Make love out of misery
Stroke each other’s
Empathy

LA LA LA LA LA

You walk behind
Sensing we’re I’ve stepped
Afraid to disturb
The balanced nest

We come in unison
Move by patterns and rules
Baton fools

LA LA LA LA LA

Rundown man
I want a rundown man
Rundown man
I want a rundown man

I’ll pull you in
Then we’ll run lightning blue
Chasing words
I wrote for you

Rundown man
I want a rundown man
Rundown man
I want a rundown man
Track Name: Just Another Color
Paint me as you wish
Please start from the lips
Define every line
Sketch me so divine

But to you I'm just another color
Hiding in the tip of your brush
But to you I'm just another color
Hiding in the tip of your brush

The way you love your craft your hand
A part I try to stand
Though it shakes my model like presence

To you I'm just another color
Hiding in the tip of your brush
To you I'm just another color
Hiding in the tip of your brush

You are just another color
Hiding in the tip of your brush
You are just another color
Hiding in the tip of your brush
Track Name: Blending in the Universe
Flying way up high
Don't have a need to say goodbye
Sleep upon a cloud
Leave that crowd down below

No I don't care
I don't mind
Leaving everything behind
No I don't fit in
And I don't mind
Leaving everything behind

Sand beneath my feet
I can feel the heat
Where shall I go
Diving through the Dead Sea
Oh it forces me to float

No I don't care
I don't mind
Leaving everything behind
No I don't fit in
And I don't mind
Leaving everything behind
