Track Name: Objectify
When I think of plain view I think of you
You're the right end of the gun, the first in line
A richer man could have you
Why can't I have one too?
Owe it to my nature to objectify your face your shape ya
When I think of plain view I think of you

When I think of lost souls I think of you
You're not one but you can make on in a heartbeat
I don't want to want you to
Owe it to my nature to objectify your face your shape ya
When I think of lost souls I think of you

When I think of pleading hearts I think of you
I see myself hands behind my back stretched out face to the floor
And I put myself here too
Owe it to my nature to objectify your face your shape ya
When I think of plain view I think of you

On the climb I was the last one to the top
And at the stop sign I was the last one to a full and complete stop
Still you press me for an answer and baby I've never been the quick one

When I think of plain view I think of you
You're the right end of the gun, the first in line
A richer man could have you
Why can't I have one too?
Owe it to my nature to objectify your face your shape ya
When I think of lost souls and pleading hearts and so much to lose
When I think of you
Track Name: Stay Awhile
Pass me in the hall
Pass me with it all
Out where I can see
Don't pass me by, say hi
Stay a while

Pass me in your slip
Pass me to your lips
Your love I recall
Don't pass me by
'Cause I can't sleep at all

I won't pass you up again
I won't let us just be friends

There's an air of hesit'tation when I t'talk you up
Intimating that I can be with you, I can sieth with you
I'll be angered by all the things that anger you
We'll hang our pictures up and practicallity won't take them down
We'll hang our pictures up and foolish words will never take them down
We'll hang our pictures up and hell itself will never take them down

I'm sad and I'm broke
You don't laugh at my jokes
But your smile says it all
Don't pass me by, say hi
Stay a while

Don't pass me by, say hi
Stay a while
Track Name: Blanket
There's just one object
One blanket over everything
That can scream peace for hours and hours
I wish upon the stars it hangs
With moon and sun above
The courses they fly seem to testify

That treasured sky will soon give way
To hope that I can touch
To hope that I can touch

I press into the blanket
When I stand and wave my arms at you
breathe it in and I scream it out

That treasured sky will soon give way
To hope that I can touch
To hope that I can touch

I'm a little figure on a great big globe as the camera pans back
and all you can see is me with my arms outstretched
My fingers grabbing as I spin
The further you get from me you can see the blue sky turning
into darker shades of greys and black
Until you know it's not blue sky but a void of space
See me standing, see me
I'm going
Track Name: Fame
How much do they pay you?
Couldn't have been a lot
Everything they had in this life, not much
Pocket change for what they got
The key opens the front door
The robe is for their back

Fame
Fame is the last thing
Fame is the only thing
I am longing
Fame I can call on, to make me happy
To hide my bad side, to bring me love

I've checked my other options
They're just more of the same
Would you promise you won't disappear
As quickly as you came
I tip my jar of treasures
'till I can see them all

Fame

There's places I can run to
And places I can hide
But who will come unlock the door
When I want to come inside
I tip my jar of treasures
'till I can see them all

Fame
Fame is the last thing
Fame is the only thing
I am longing
Fame stole my best friends, it robbed my innocence
It took my confidence, it left me numb
Track Name: Iceberg
Cold words struggle out, struggle out, struggle out I see
If you don't watch they fade away
Lonely days are what you put me through when you don't seem to see me
I think they turn my thoughts to grey
I'll sing, I'll believe
I'll do anything for you to notice me

But you're an iceberg
I can't get close to you
And I'm exhausted
'Cause we don't move like we used to
Away

Hate me
Yes I know, yes I know, yes I know, yes I know
Yes I know you hate me sometimes
But these hands they keep holding on
Like a prayer that you would notice if I'd gone

But you're an iceberg
I can't get close to you
And I'm exhausted
'Cause we don't move like we used to

(I've been living right, I've been hoping I could make a mark on you)

Cold words struggle out, struggle out, struggle out I see
If you don't watch they fade away

You're an iceberg
I can't get closed to you
And we dont' move like we used to
Track Name: Conviction
I want to know who pushes the turnstiles in your head
I want to know who is vying for your, who is trying for your time

Demonstrations are unique
And what I'm trying to say is when you speak
The words can walk and hold and hurt
Allow me now to reassert
Loving you....

I want to know who pushes the turnstyles in your head
I want to know who is vying for your, who is trying for your time

Your presence here is my defeat
'Cause when you put your hand on the back of this seat
The action holds my concentration
Allow me this one observation

Loving you is such a wonderful indictment
This trial was heaven sent so
Choose me, accuse me
I'm guilty and you don't know it baby
I want to know who is vying for your, who is trying for your time

Loving you....

I'm guilty and you don't know it
Track Name: Innocence
Innocence is an empty page
I lost that at such an early age
Satans buzzards gathered round
To catch the apple before it hit the ground

God's making a list of all my sins
He's got a big book he writes it all down in
There's a page in there for me
And when I close my eyes it's all I see

What's an unpardonable soul
Those words were written on me years ago
Should I wait for your reply
Or will I struggle with this 'till I die

So tip the jar and let it spill
You want confession well you know that I will
Into the page we'll let it soak
And to the old man, I hope you choke
Innocence is an empty page
Track Name: Expatriate
I expatriate
I abandon my ideals like so much mud washed down the river
Yes the river it divides and then again
Dividing backwards to the place from which it came
Where does it come from?
Like this praise yes I do like the way you praise me
I devour your affection like too much easter candy

I would lie to you
I would lie and then lye down and let you take the blame
So familiar how I divide and then again
Until there's nothing 'cause empty men are all the same
Where does it come from?
All this praise yes I do like the way you praise me
I devour your affection like too much easter candy

I don't see good, I don't like good
I don't feel good with anyone, for anyone, in anyone
It rots me, this candy
It's superficial, superficial
I can't live on superficial
Track Name: Secrets
Her lover wears a beautiful ring
He takes it off whenever she's around
He likes to think that his wife will never find out

Secrets, you've got secrets
(Here is my version of the truth)
(This is how I'll love you and I'll never leave you)

He said 'I'm sorry that I have to leave so soon'
In just the way I'm singing you this tune
'I'll kiss and touch for now but then it's off to work again'
While in his mind the facts all bend

Secrets, you've got secrets
(Here is my version of the truth)
(This is how I'll love you and I'll never leave you)

A colder day has never blocked the sun
A chance in the cold, a thousand to one
A voice has frozen pictures in her mind
'This thing in my hand, do you know where I got it?'
She turns the weapon over in her hands
What future she sees, with him will she stand
She'll stand over X-lover with the ring
Both lost in the cold and here is the thing

Secrets, you've got secrets
(Here is my version of the truth)
(This is how I'll love you and I'll never leave you)
Track Name: Wildflower
If I spend a dollar on you
Buy you some coffee
Would you pass the cream and sugar just to let me know you're listening

I was going to tell you
I like all of you I see
Would you pass the cream and sugar just to let me know you're listening
You're not listening so I'll say it this way
Your kisses are brown sugar and your lips provide a purchase in the beauty of your face

And you're a wildflower
If I could only tell you

This is the dark night of my soul
I must be true
You think I'm sophisticated but you're the only one that I see and I will love you

Would you pass the cream and sugar just to let me know you're listening
You're not listening so I'll say it this way
Your kisses are brown sugar and your lips provide a purchase in the beauty of your face

And you're a wildflower
If I could only tell you
You're not listening
