Sign 04:25
here i go walking down the street smiling at the people that i'm lucky enough to meet here we go walking in a line snapping on our fingers and dancing on our feet i'm gonna ask you for your sign if you give me some time up a staircase step by step climbing to the clouds cue an airplane cue the sun cue my heartbeat loud i went shopping for a love and i found a deal it seems it's true and it's on sale doesn't come with feelings here i go walking down the street staring at the people that i haven't been graced to meet here we go walking to the store talking on our cell phones and hoping for something more i'm gonna ask you for a dime if you give me some time up a staircase... here i go walking down the street laughing at the salesman who's trying to get cash from me here we go walking to the store thinking about the future and falling into a store i'm gonna ask you for what's mine if you give me some time up a staircase...

there's a lot of drama that has come our way let it wash all over us and no one else can say what a man has been through and what makes him who he is it's no one elses business in the past we lived just like no lovers with no plans to make a life together wine and camels in our hands i see you now in life just like i saw you years before i'm not playing anymore never in a million years did i want to lose you never in the past did i want to give you up if you wanna be with me we must work together our love is too strong to give up there's so much about you that i've tried to say don't know if i've said it yet said it to your face i've tried so hard to be discreet i don't know you'll believe that you've got what i need you're in a relationship and i'm afraid of men you might marry soon and i won't kiss your lips again gotta take this chance before the door gets slammed shut in my face baby let me in *chorus*

Hide Now 05:12
a lot of people think that we are here to save the world and i used to agree the tide will always turn i'll focus on an odd extreme for a young modern girl i'm gonna go i'm gonna go wild now i'm gonna go disco i'm gonna go hide now i'm gonna go.... to a dimly lit metropolitan bar where my barkeep knows me baby i'm a star no the revolution will not be sober and i'm not gonna come out until it's over a casanova came and saw me on my barstool yeah like i was waiting for him he made a lot of noise he looked at me like someone else someone i used to be *chorus*

Mama 04:25
mama when you left me i was talking on the phone when you left me i didn't know i was alone when you left me i was happy to see you go when you left me mama mama you left me room to grow and now it's been so long so long since you were here and now it's been so long since i have had you near how's the weather up there and tell me do you ever cry and if so mama can a river fall from your eye now i'm here singing a song about confusion not despair not alone never could be a world of family out there to help me mama i know that you are there you're hoping i see you and sometimes it is clear *chorus*

New Person 02:24
we're working on a new kind of person derived from the human being we've been doing this work in secret some people are afraid of machines got everything in order right down to the opposable thumb but not the opposable viewpoint cause without that our battles are won they're won they're won we've got it all under control don't you stress don't stress your mind or your soul we're not asking for trouble from you if you do you can be replaced we've already got a new kind of weapon the kind with nothing to lose we've activated the borders separated the many from the few just clear your mind of all judgement just to be sure you'll be saved you don't want to be thinking the wrong thing so it's either your mind or your grave *chorus*

never let you go go for you are weary go excite the dead go the night is calling follow scattered thread i turned to the left the left is lacking i turned to the right the right was wrong i looked to my shoes they held no answers but onward they point the path i choose on a tiresome journey desperate for the shore wake me in the morning i must travel more i turned... *chorus*

Excuses 03:50
it's very dark in here he said do you want to drink with me purple mead i have a basketball in the closet we can play when the sun comes up it's very loud in here she cried and the soda bubbles in her eyes danced and rang a bell for happiness she's quieted the din and we call it love cause it feels like candy tastes but it's gone when we walk out the door it brings us to our knees but maybe it's just an excuse you're very hard to see they thought and moving closer helps distract my eyes out in the parking lot when the girl comes out the people in the cars are ordering their hamburgers when the girl comes out everyone sighs but the girl comes out and everybody wants to know why *chorus*

Percolating 03:51
where you going with the light of my eyes i'm looking out i'm seeing nothing pick me up it's been too long it's been the right way no matter it how it feels take it all in it's what we live in the cynic whiles away the play's dramatic and it's funny perkolating money making the lives of everyone are all integral to the story this world needs love this world needs love to help it up *chorus* futures faded the kids are jaded there's nothing you can do but pull the curtain for the next act make some ruckus while they fuck us i want a lot of things but mostly i jut want redemption this girl needs love to help her up *chorus* take it all in no distraction you're gonna leave me here but i was warm and felt in your arms now you're off to sniff your suture i'd kiss the pain away if only you would say the hard things this boy needs love to help him up *chorus*

Aurora 03:10
oh when my mother told me never wear my words i ran backwards to turn out the light so we could make the whole world bright aurora i want to see you again aurora from nova scotia because i knew you before i met you at mate magique we went to fix phils toilet which i stopped up i did it cosi revaya and when my father told me to go look it up i would think that he was tired of me no he won't be my dictionary but not aurora.. *chorus* oh yes i know that when you sleep tonight you're going to make the whole world bright.

Blanket Form 03:37
as i lie alone at night blanket curled around me tight i miss someone that i just can't have anymore search my heart to try to guess if i'm much better off without that mess i can't decide but no matter how i tried i can only fall asleep when you're beside me i can only rest my body when you're there so i wait and bide my time pretending that you're mine i know it's not the right thing but i've got to ease my mind eye to eye we kiss goodnight you clear your throat turn out the light the dark can't reveal what i don't want to feel i cradle you in blanket form you call me precious i call you warm but miles are between where you are and this scene who is she not a part of my fantasy until i hear a mazal tov i won't give up hope because *chorus*
