Otis 03:25
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

One Good Way 03:26
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

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

Perfect 05:38
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
5.
Time 02:32
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

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

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
9.
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

Paradise 04:59
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
