Track Name: Let Me Have A Dream
Before the flowers bloom
Beneath the dirt
And a God awful gulag
Covers the Earth
Before we disappear
Into the number of his name
And love looks the same
Looks the same
Looks the same.
Before the soldiers come
With black shirts blazing
And the chains of freedom
Smile unchanging
Before there's a dam
every mile down the street
They come to take my hands
From me

I'll plan my whole life
Death will catch me by surprise
And a doubter has never caught
An original thought.

Before the flag shows
That its blood is black
And my mother has
a Heart attack
There's a fine line
between revolution and revulsion
We'll have the answer
when we've got the question
All before men
Are banned from Wimsey
And our brother cease to
believe in mercy
Before the camel of Camu's
victim is yours
you're bashing your head
on old church doors

Let me have a dream
That someday we'll be
As happy as i promised
We'd one day be
Cause if the world ends
And I'm still not myself
And how could God
Take me seriously
How could God
Take me seriously

I'll plan my whole life
Death will catch me by surprise
And a doubter has never caught
An original thought.
Track Name: Resembles
I finally realized I'm not normal
Now that i take a closer look
I've never steered a car
Or touched the ocean
With my bare foot
Little bit poor
Never took a chance
Never braved a roller coaster
Not learned to dance

But you talk about the outside
As if it was the inside of something new
When i look at the bright side
Well it all seems to resemble you

I've never kissed in public
Blood rushes up to my face
I try so hard not to be upset
It just aint my time or my place
I've never trusted strangers
they're always up to no good
Would i do it all on a whim i guess
Then i just never ever could.

But you talk about the outside
As if it was the inside of something new
When i look at the bright side
Well it all seems to resemble you
Track Name: Everything Means Everything
I know you like to go
Where no one else likes to go
You've seen so many things
In the places no one likes to go
Don't ask me what it means
This your trip you tell me
You like to show them
You always knew what you were doing
So here's the sketch
Here's the drought
Here's the song that we were singing
If they wont ask you what it means
If you want to you can tell me
Everything means everything to you
Does everything mean everything to you

There's a voice inside my head
That cheers me on as i go walking
Do you notice the pot holes
Where one day soon i'll be buried
Until then you can rest assure
There just aint no stopping me
Together we'll make some noise
And serve this town its final warning
Some friends flare and others fool
But we'll be singing light of morning
Now everything means everything to me
Everything means everything to me.
Track Name: Much To Save
Close your arms
Millstone around my neck
Is this our bedroom
Or the cliff where i fall to my death
Your hands move with ease
Just like razor wire
I'm caught like a soldier
Caught under fire.

You think love will save us
From the cradle to the grave
I wouldn't worry much
There aint all that much to save.

Where your eyes
shine like pools in mine
When i try to choke
on the line
I know it was love
but i fear for my life
It would be a miracle
to shape an axe into a wife

You say love can save us
From the cradle to the grave
I wouldn't worry much
There aint all that much to save.

You say love will save us
From the cradle to the grave
I say don't worry much
There aint all that much to save.
