Track Name: Shake
Shake

Shake shake shake your at leaves me
Tough love has got me on my knees
Shake shake shake your spirit free
Heal heal from a sick disease

Come go comin’ up against
A loud voice that just tells me when
To let fly on wounded wings
Shock me am I seeing things?

I hear a soldier’s song
I feel a craving crazy strong
Got to get, get with the times
Gotta trust enough
To lay it on the line

Patience, patience I hold on tight
Bet on my heart that it’s alright
Pushing pulling so that you might
Hear me calling to bring the light
Bring the light
Bring the light
Bring the light....

Effigy of a southern gate
Do you see that I hesitate?
Count to three I concentrate
Count to seven begin to shake free

Shake shake shake your at leaves me
Tough love has got me on my knees
Shake shake shake your spirit free
Heal heal from a sick disease

Come go comin’ up against
A loud voice that just tells me when
To let fly on wounded wings
Shock me am I seeing things?
Track Name: Ashes
Ashes

Skin like ashes
Words like snow
To stay means trouble
But who of us wants to go?

Lines on the ceiling
Count them one more time
Hunting for feeling
But what I find is not mine

Sit at your outpost
Friends filter through
Recalling times of plenty
When darlings sang for you

Lines on the highway
Follow them away from here
I take what you say
And nourish what’s sincere

Go back to the islands
Take time to clear your head
I’ll stay with the sirens
Until the city’s fed
Track Name: In The Bones
It’s been a long time
Since I walked this road
It’s been a long time
I been carrying this load
Now I’m going I’m going home
Way back way back
Way back where I come from

It’s been a long time
I been on my own
Had many teachers
A lots been shown
Now I’m goin’ back to the land
To my oldest teacher
On which I stand

Somebody said that we’re gettin’ older
But I still feel like such a soldier
As its been said, we’ve discovered
There's nothing left to do
But join each other on the land

I’m gonna be a good daughter
Gonna be a good friend
Gonna be a good lover
With time to lend
Gonna stop this running
Gonna stand up tall
Gonna bury this restlessness
Gonna burn these walls

Somebody said that we’re gettin’ older
But I still feel like such a soldier
As its been said, we’ve discovered
There's nothing left to do
But join each other on the land

Don’t need a machine
To show me the road
Don’t need a disaster
To get me to go
Cuz I’m from the dust
And I have grown
And I find my home
Deep in my bones
Track Name: Post Weekend
Rest These Eyes
Hum and Sigh
Burn Herbs and Unwind
And Then When
We Wake, Lets Spend
Tomorrow In Love

Repaired
And Wash Out Our Mouths
And Care
Cuz Its Is An Occasion
This Time
We Both Want To Stay
And Refine
Now that We Agree That
This Package Comes With Few Guarantees
Cuz It’s Too Supernatural
SuperNatural As Humans can be

In your Sight
(Seeing past the coliseum)
Dynamite
(Oakland giving you a feeling)
Make it right
(Took a week to talk it out this time)
Hold tight hold tight till the morning comes
(And then we throw it across the sky)

Light and Haze
(Maybe laugh about it cry about it)
Count the days
(And at night we join in dreams about it)
Know your ways
(Send an arrow to the center of it)
And we allow authenticity
To love!!!

Times They Change
(Easy Coming and a’goin’)
Jobs the Same
(Who Are We To Act Like Knowing)
To Live or Let Live
(Understanding How To Give It Better)
And Someday
(And Maybe Someday)
We’ll Sit And Say
That We Were Not Sorry
For Not Giving No Guarantees
(Ain’t No Fun In Prediction, When We Try We’re Making Friction)
Cuz Its Too SuperNatural
Supernatural As Humans Can Be
(We Can Trust In Good Feelings, And Be Glad For The Healing)
Yeah This Pretty Package
It Don’t Come With No False Guarantees
Cuz It’s Too Supernatural
Supernatural as Humans Can Be
Track Name: Vices
Coming into the kitchen
You looked so very dense
Coming into my vision
Your special language don’t make much sense

You were already on you high
I knew you were coming so
So was I
You came by for a lullaby
But there was no sleep that night

Fallen angels, well known strangers
Danger danger don’t miss that train
Bound for glory, in no hurry
Tellin stories of how you’ve changed

Lovely fashion and nice tattoos
Keep stashin’ away your blues
Pretty pictures but what is true
Old coyote got ahold on you

But, you are so beautiful
That look, unshakable
You are so beautiful
You’re a star child with a rugged soul

Skull and crossbones upon your heart
You wear them well, like beauty marks
So sweet and so bitter
Make it right with your lightning glitter

Maybe it’s your ancient memories
To big for your precious identity
But don’t tell me that you love the glory
More than you love your family

But, you are so beautiful
That look, unshakable
You are so beautiful
You’re a star child with a rugged soul

Gorgeous vices, perfectly placed
Gently hidden for your routine embrace
Wounded healers and drunken saints
What nice pictures we like to paint
Track Name: 'W'
Does your mother say?
And does your father say?
And do your teachers say
To walk in a line?

Does your ancestry
Seem a fantasy
And will your legacy
Stand through the times?

But who’s the one with courage?
Who’s the one who knows?
All reasons that you built,
Fall like dominos

Not convincible
How you lost control
With them lofty goals
Catching the sky

Irresistible
How you could pull the wool
No, you’re no ones fool
Tying your ties

But do you long for listeners?
And do you know your friends?
And can you hear the questioners?
And do your answers bend?

In your thunderstorm
With your worn and torn
I hope you’re keeping warm
Working the Flames

With your bitten tongue
I hope you’re feeling young
It looks like you’ve become
The one with no name

It’s all laid out for you, old man
It’s all laid out for you
So what you gonna do, old man?
What you gonna do?
Track Name: Lost Story
Through Seven Seas
A Lost Story
Of Two Young Heathens

Touch Tenderly
And Casually
Take Notice
That You’ve Got Me

We Discuss Autonomy
The Need for Solitude
And Fantasy

Exposing Our Diaries
And We’re Embedded In
The Scenery

Come to the Edge
(Be As You Are)
The Fireside
(As if Love)
What Life
(Where The Only)
To Be Human
(Way You Know Of)

Through Seven Seas
A Lost Story
Of Two Young Heathens

Touch Tenderly
And Casually
Take Notice
That You Got Me

Saving This Time
To Imprint Tear Apart
A Flame
That Devours Me

Wrap Me Up In Your Arms
Joining
In The Rite
Of Simplicity

Stretching To What We Can
Offer To
Card and Rune
We Attune
In An Opening

Lightning In Who We Are
Here Again
There Before
Till the end
Its Just You and Me
Track Name: Gold Lasso
We were chosen
To be the ones to go
Deep down where the future grows

It’s no coincidence
And everybody knows
That we’re ready for the rodeo

We on the flatlands
We gonna tame the beast
We on the mountain
Looking out, from the highest peaks

Now it’s our turn
We got our hands on the wheel
Its time
To clear the field

It’s just a moment
It’s just a blink of an eye
We won’t let the well run dry

On a wire
Its getting’ gettin’ higher
We acquire
A gold lasso

We conspire
By neon bonfire
To catch the keys
To what we know

And there’s a stampede
And it’s crossed the line
It looks like its right on time

And there’s a passion
To make a new design
We’re gonna make this baby shine
Track Name: Gold Lasso, Unfolded
All the minds are loaded
And the plans are made
And the light exploded
All the roads they paved

All the lights are lifted
All the curtains drawn
And the scope has shifted
To the stage we’re on

When the earth starts shakin’
We’re on our feet
And what’s not forsaken
Pours into the streets

The weight is lifting
And the flames are high
And the eagle watches
From a wounded sky
Track Name: Willow
You are an ocean
And I, a diver deep
You are a hungry farmer
And I, a harvest to reap


Suns and moons and stars we swoon
To wake us from our sleep,
Even if the world would die
My love you’ll always keep

You are a sunrise
And I, an eastbound train
You are a midnight poet
And I, the table’s flame

Song of a willow
Blow us to a higher place
Queen of the coyotes
Howl into the empty space

You are a bandit
And I, a chest of jewels
You are a grumpy king
And I, a topnotch fool

You are an Eskimo
And I, a sea of ice
You are a gamble
And I, the lucky dice

Song of a Willow
Blow us to a higher place
Queen of the coyotes
Howl into the empty space

Let us remember
A time when reason took its bow
Feelings of wonder
Help us to remember how
Track Name: Billy Cruz
Billy Cruz
Was a kid with some paint on his face
Who wore no shoes
But what he touched it turned to gold
Billy Cruz
He put his head some far out places
But would not loose
His touch for that rock and roll

He made a lengthy confession
That Eve was the first girl he’d kissed
And it made him need a religion
So he called himself
An Animist

Billy Cruz
Was a kid with some paint on his face
Who wore no shoes
But what he touched it turned to gold
Billy Cruz
Put his head some far out places
But would not loose
His touch for that rock and roll

Billy rode 70 miles
Leap leap!
And still did not sweat off his style
Leap leap!
He finally showed up with a smile
Leap leap
And told us he’s back from the wild
Back from the wild
Back from the wild

Billy!
You must call your manager
Billy!
You worry your girl
Billy!
So in with the scavengers
Billy!
Your heads in a whirl

Sit between two redwood trees
Triangle up
Triangle down
Do your rituals
Watch the cars go by
Throw away your phone
And skip this town

He’s likes to play some black metal
He’s likes shape shifting into a black panther
He likes to be kind and thoughtful
He likes he likes to let everybody know
