Track Name: Otis
Dancing for the rain again with vultures in my mouth
Cranking back the tired hand, all my days are left
Otis, weave your lonely love around the ballroom light
Begin to see all you’ve been
Look at who you are

A man of action
and a mere fraction

Walking through the pain of thought you call within your house
Let the rain begin the song for vagrants in our prayer
Otis look it’s time for more it’s time to call the king
Look at where all was made
Right before our time

A hand of action
And a mere fraction

Otis you’re a warrior
Now we’re free
Track Name: One Good Way
There’s a cry out from baltimore
To the canyons of hollywood
I can’t put it layman’s terms
cause it’s been rumbling and burning in the gut

I’ve had enough of this city's rabid industry
The whole damn tower’s falling with me

So with that vision for holding on
bare witness to the crash of dawn
good morning for patriots
out tasting their last bite of steak

It’s cut real thin for once
The chef got to thinking
maybe we can make a buck of their hunger, feeding them hunger

now that the hope is gone
The trial of fire is right next door
there’s only holding on

To one more day
in one good way

Real slow

There’s a car out from San Francisco
Headed east on a serpent’s back
Follow the queen of babylon
make her a bed in The Great Salt Flats Of Utah

Don’t let her sing too loud
her voice is always going flat with the worry of a thousand ages locked in cages

Now that the hope has come
You can run your flag into the deep blue see
and finally be free

Of one more day
In one good way

Read the signs
Track Name: Cardinal City
Gonna start a big fire
feeding all the red flames
of Cardinal City

Drinks out on the top deck
Looking out on the grand
Blushing plenty

It’s a lonely life
That keeps us satisfied
A bitter drink
A bitter cocaine
A bitter the life you got scared to think could die

Wander through the ballroom
Fighting through all the legs
drenched in money

Drive that plight to war now
keep the keeping on top
With more cardinal cities

In a flash of light
we got scared to death of ourselves
and we apologize
and we sympathize
and we keep harrowing one til we lay face down to die

We’re all born in cardinal city
We’re all made for cardinal city
we’re all making cardinal city
our rest your bones, love of your life
Love of your life

I’ve been turned around some
Seems like nothing works
In cardinal city

Staring at the progress
falling into a sigh
of one too many

It’s a lonely life
That keeps us satisfied
A bitter drink
A bitter cocaine
A bitter the life you got scared to think could die

We’re all born in cardinal city
We’re all made for cardinal city
we’re all making cardinal city
our rest your bones, love of your life
Love of your life
Track Name: Perfect
And now the sun is sinking down
Floating through the vacuum

Every saint that I’ve known is burning
toward the mouth of love
in glorious fashion

Awake now
and rise
from this terrible war
It’s happened to us all

We can’t be told everything
but soon the we all will know
The trial by fire and blood

You are perfect
the way you have become
Sometimes tearing, sometimes sewn
All was made in perfection to perfect itself in perfection
Again and again and again
Track Name: Time
Time is a bed of gold
rippling through the powers of old
falling in the way of devotion
dreaming of the sound of rain

Lay on the pale moon
feed the world the love of your spoon
drinking the nectar of solace
sleeping in the heart of the bloom

When our love resolves
I find hope in the ripe and bruised of timing
A shell of rain
a doorway through the pain of God’s arrangement

Time is the way we know
how to help her heart to grow
here now and before
weeping for the love of the show
Track Name: Deep Surprise
It’s a pity
such a pity damn
that you lower your eyes from love
just to run away from me

Love’s a danger
and the terror found
you asleep at dawn’s light
I’m on the other side of the glass

Show me your body in the naked light
it’s taken us forever now we know it’s time
Tear off your burden with your burning eyes
Tell me that you’re falling into deep surprise
with me

If you want it
you can have it
now In the blooming our love
the sundown of desire

You tell me you want time
what do you need?

Show me your body in the naked light
it’s taken us forever now we know it’s time
Tear off your burden with your burning eyes
Tell me that you’re falling into deep surprise
with me
Track Name: Diamond In The Rough
I love the way that you are mine
my diamond in the rough
Baby wants to suffer late
tame the row she tossed

Broken from the old despite
baring force in the river’s sight
out of touch so I beg for rest
in my baby’s arms tonight

If you want the rain be gone
it goes
you’re bored again
Your world is tamed from all your fits
they trickle down again

Despondent from the loss of what has been
it’s never been so quiet

Lay your mind in a vase of stars and crack the flower within

Now we’re in the love that’s seeding, old and needing, light and feeding
Diamond in the rough that’s leaving, oh this grieving, lonely feeling
Diamond in the rough

I love the way that you are mine
My diamond in the rough
Track Name: Consistency of Grace
I know what you want
I’m here to give it some way out
Free of time
We’re going to last forever now

Laying in the bark of love
Happy to be alive
Training the solemn dove
Be taken for a ride
I know you’ve frozen in desire
Closing shop
Beyond the workings of your mind
the curtain has dropped

And as we watch the embers fly
I’m only yours for this short while
and it feels like a thousand lights
Drifting away

We’re going to last forever now

I know what you think
But it gets dirty when you think
So woof around
sniff the deepest pain
right out

When out has come back in
and in became a ring
the ring is golden rimmed
it’s longing to be seen

I know you were taken by surprise
by all of the hope
now there’s a shimmer in your eyes
you know where to go

Now let’s lay low with only ours
only yours is indisposed
And if you don’t want to go
drifting away

I’ll love you now
and forever be that love
you devour

With consistency of grace
Track Name: Paradise
We’re in paradise
falling through the hall of power
travel as one

There’s no dying light
everyone’s a perfect God
holding the sky
to remain here

You tried so hard to be a star
but you can’t hold it
you’re going to lose it all
no matter who you are

trouble breeds more trouble
but you can lose it
you can lose it all
if you can brace the fall
step forward
falling in line

Remember me?
I was standing all alone
drinking the sea

When you stepped in
Perfect tide and perfect breath
Calling for me

To remain here

I dove into the pail of light
With my clothes on
to lose it all
I didn’t know I had it all

Drumming in my body is the old life
I’m going to watch it die
If I can brace the fall
step forward
falling in line

We’re in paradise
