I will lay my burdens down in golden silence I will seek to ground electric violence What would you do if I lay down in front of you What would you do if I opened up my safe And put it on me, put it on you, put it on me put it on you I unwind the fabric of time in endless oceans I deep sea dive in bottomless emotions What would you do if I lay down in front of you What would you do if I opened up my safe And put it on me, put it on you, put it on me put it on you Sometimes I get so locked I get so lost And I can't get out And I just can't face I can't get out And I just can't fake it Put it on me, put it on you, put it on me etc.

Lie and cheat It don't mean anything She's got to give it up She's so desire She likes it scandalous He feeds her fire Come to me Pure and sweet Her humor is a crutch Her guilty pawn Her beauty is a horse She's riding on She's got the chops, she wants to live it up Sucking back the schnapps, hot and dangerous No turning off the flow tonight Complicated way to say the simple Thick waves of raw audiovisual Quick on the draw and always right High horse No remorse Gotta get her rocks off for free Play me Just 'cause this heart is free No more trust It's all gone Nothing but lust He'll play along She's got the chops, she wants to live it up Sucking back the schnapps, hot and dangerous No turning off the flow tonight Complicated way to say the simple Thick waves of raw audiovisual Quick on the draw and always right High horse No remorse Gotta get her rocks off for free

When eyes cloud out with doubt And tears fall from the clouds The soul cries out And fear holds us till we drown All or nothing We are all or nothing But we are free in eternity Every time it feels too steep to climb We are alone Whatever it's about We'll work it out We'll make it home Don't you worry, don't you fret We're not beaten yet All or nothing We are all or nothing But we are free in eternity

Take it, please just take it Even though it's battered and tattered and worn 'cause each time I reach out it gets scattered and torn I try to trust But it's just too much 'cause I can see you wanna keep me On my knees You can try to hide But I feel you You can try to lie But I feel you I know who you are I feel you Trapped in echo chamber walls In an unquenchable void of speech I'm searching for your heart In the folds between memories You know it's wrong but you carry on To fill your cracking ego faults And I will feel it all In each beat of my pulse You can try to hide But I feel you You can try to lie But I feel you I know who you are I feel you Haters hate but I can't believe We ain't got no history Apparently you envy me But if you had what's mine You'd starve and freeze But I am made of fire So come at me Go ahead and freeze me I don't care anymore Keep pretending you don't see me I know what you do it for I got this love that carries me It opens all the secret doors You will never get to me I won't show up to the war There's nothing you can do to me I don't scare anymore You will never get to me I don't care anymore I feel you

Off the rails, runaway train You hit the station with your sweet pain Engines gunnin' through my brain Crash like lightning Pour like rain Forbidden fruit, soothe my sweet tooth Oh how I love the taste Fall on me now Fall on the ground Don't let it go to waste Hope eternal, fever chill I held the embers They burn me still Summer soft in the morning air Your hand like fire In my hair Forbidden fruit, soothe my sweet tooth Oh how I love the taste Fall on me now Fall on the ground Don't let it go to waste Alone is where I go It's what I know As the wolves chase me down I'm lost, surrounded Won't you pick me up Take a bite Let me feed your appetite Don't let me rot on the ground

I’ll meet you in the garden Away from all the parasites And we’ll embrace like children Not trying to hide the love inside You’ll tell me you knew me Once upon a higher ground Just another part of each other You were always around That must be Why I gotta have you near me Even just in imagery I need your eyes on me And that must be Why I wanna cry All I can do is sigh At the mention of your name I love the way you carry on In every funky song In every soulful melody It carries me to my solidarity It’s all I need But when I see you move When I see you groove My heart bleeds I’m catching your signals I love the way you get to me You’re becoming less subtle With your synchronicity I just hope I’m reading All of the right messages In this cavern of mirrors And strange maze of passages ‘cause I love it when you speak and when you sing it’s everything to me but ooh, when I see you move when I see you groove my heart bleeds It's true, every time I see you My heart bleeds Where are you, please come to me When will you be embodied You say, keep the faith Focus on your purpose girl But I say, I can’t wait I need you in my world I’ll see you in the courtyard Away from all the prying hands And we’ll finally be together In our own wonderland Baby I gotta have you near me It's everything I need But when I see you move When I see you groove My heart bleeds It's true, every time I see you My heart bleeds

So many years So many tears Don’t let me fall On deaf ears We took the walk We hit the wall We stripped our gears off Down to the wire We lit the fire And never did I call your name I didn’t want to play those games So I retreat among the trees Where sky at dusk Paints a dusty bruise I’ll catch the clues I’ll find my truth Only you Hold the key That can open this heart now I’ll find you somehow Riding through this idle town Enslaved to waves of sound Only you

Used to be, I could see my life falling away, falling prey To strip malls, and movie scenes, and white walls beneath beauty queens But now I choose to just sit right here With a full view of a California cut-out couple drinking beer on a beach somewhere There's more to life More than breathing More than getting by More than believing You say you're gonna sell all your stuff And set out for the highway You'll pack your tent and your tobacco And you won't be going my way 'Cause I'm a broken down train At a summer burger joint By the side of the road Where the tourists sit down to eat I'm amusing, I can lighten your load But I'm stationary I have no track I'm stationary And when I do it always takes me back To the place where I hide out I have to unlock my heart So you can hear it shouting Sometimes I feel so bloody blessed And I hold my life tight to my chest But if I want nothing to change how can I progress My friends are gone, they've given up They're off to find the well of success and fill their cups They're tired of my tireless philosophies They're tired of my rambling daydream poetry There's more to life More than breathing More than getting by More than believing Someday I'll sell all my stuff and set out for the highway I'll pack my tent and my guitar and my note-book Is it my way? Or am I a broken down train At a summer burger joint By the side of the road Where the tourists sit down to eat I'm amusing, I can lighten your load But I'm stationary I have no track I'm stationary And when I do it always takes me back To the place where I hide out I have to unlock my heart So you can hear it shouting

Yes I know it’s midnight the crow black eyes curl around her head foreseeing the fog of a gridlock dawn she jumps the hurdles to her bed Yes I know it’s daylight Patches of sun appear on the wall Reflected down from an orange window filtered through the crystal ball Into the ides of midnight I dreamed I lived with blackbirds Inside an ancient pie There were 7000 horses Opening gates a millennium wide I saw them whipping power They had it on its knees To open the gates of enslaved hours But no one could find the key Owls call around her Underneath the hooded sky 100,000 horses pull the weight of ties that bind into the ides of midnight You don’t have to open up your eyes You don’t have to try to harness the sky Just cut the chains off of your mouth And ask the mountains why Just cut the vault out of your throat And ask the oceans why And try to make the hours come alive I don’t even want speculate about it I don’t even want to reciprocate Your thrown stones I don’t even want to talk about it I don’t even want to be there when you Harvest the seeds we’ve sown Yes I know I’m still here Reflexes answer to the dawn She sleeps in the bone yard of my hours As I mark the page of another day gone into the ides of midnight Owls call around her Underneath the hooded sky 100,000 horses pull the weight of ties that bind into the ides of midnight

There are songs in my heart that are waiting to be born I don’t know where to start so I wait for it to wash up on the shore Messages written in code up and down the spine of my soul Oh so much to know not much to know better spark up a bowl I am travelling, unraveling, in ribbons and bandages No more self inflicted appendages I’m saddling up my chestnut horse No more wasted action obstacle course You don’t miss me in your club That’s alright, I can rise above I wish that it was different, but it was ever thus Holding on to thoughts & feelings makes them real for us That’s why I cried so many times from thinking about it And that’s why I felt so unalive when I hid from it And that’s why I’m here to thrive today And that’s why I use this muse to say, "I came here to taste the many waters & the salts of the earth I came here to be the only daughter of my own birth I didn’t come for the pretension there’s nothing beyond the third dimension just to be a slave to someone else’s wheel I didn’t come here to work at something I don’t like to get my meals I didn't come to put my passion on the shelf, no I came here to experience myself." You don’t even know what hits you till it hits you & it’s gone You don’t even know what kind of Earth you’re standing on You don’t realize the truth you’re searching for Is already there inside your very core How can you ask for more? You don’t miss me in your club That’s alright, I can rise above I wish that it was different, but it was ever thus Holding on to thoughts and feelings makes them real for us And that’s why you cry so many times from thinking about it That’s why you felt so unalive when you hid from it That’s why you're here to thrive today And that’s why you use your muse to say You came here to taste the many waters & the salts of the earth You came here to be the only child of your own birth You didn’t come for the pretension there’s nothing beyond the third dimension just to be a slave to someone else’s wheel You didn’t come here to work at something you don’t like to get your meals You didn't come to put your passion on the shelf, no You came here to experience yourself

Blood staining the street Left there whenever death and the innocent meet Sex and struggle and drugs on TV The cost of living is high But love is free For you and me It's in my blood like holy wine And I feel fine Some people walk around listening to the news And breathing in the stink of gasoline Depending on the media to determine their views Depending on church to keep them clean Jesus said, "eat my body and drink my blood" But at what price At what cost It's in my blood like holy wine And I feel fine

It’s alright if you decide to come around and interrupt me From this lonely old abandoned merry-go-round That spins me endlessly while my courage is stuck up a tree Tell me why did you take me up so high Then tell me there was no such thing as the sky I may be closed and so-called shy But I always find the lie hidden in light on skin Or a densely loaded sigh Or flashes of motive hidden in a sparkling pair of eyes But you were different You just walked right in And sent my fingers flying over feelings That felt too finished to begin Loss and retrieval were in your half-hearted grin I tried to untangle the words with which I’d use To nourish your parched roots But I could see nothing was sinking in So I put on my walking boots And zipped up my thick skin You could just come in to make a sound You could just come and surround me With sheer and boundless possibility While my poetry is out on the town And it told me from a pay phone that it won’t be home not for love or money Both of which I have none of So I guess it’s just as well That I am going home with pockets full of pennies for the wishing well That big moon is up there biggest piece of copper a girl could need I imagine flicking it into the ocean Never again to go hungry, never again to bleed And all along you knew, saying, I told you it holds and molds you Until your life is on fire And when everything I do cramps my style I aim my sights on the telephone wire But it doesn’t make me more connected It doesn’t take me any higher There’s no way to stop the flow of time Or the hands the hold the strings that never let me sing Till I’m raw and groundless Sounding out the soundless motions to all the old songs You can say I’m crazy but you can’t say that I’m wrong I think that I intimidate you, exasperate you as much as I may elate you ‘cause my breath is baiting you and my laughter’s burning in my throat just waiting for you 'cause you were different You just walked right in And sent my fingers flying over feelings That felt too finished to begin Loss and retrieval were in your half-hearted grin I tried to untangle the words with which I’d use To nourish your parched roots But I could see nothing was sinking in So I put on my walking boots And zipped up my thick skin Heart to slaughter You took it so far away from home Prodigal daughter Went farther than she has ever known

Behold a little fox, lost and found by the king and his hounds Bearing dirty knees under tipsy skies, there she lies shading gypsy eyes While I pass by, a vacuum of a boy in adult disguise Oh wise chorus, please witness this not-so-innocent kiss And realize she opened wide for all my lies concerning her mother's demise It was for her own good when I thought perhaps I should give her something to make her sleep, and she did, curled up in the shape of a wedding ring, what a pretty thing While all the night the elevator doors rang on every floor Like a school bell, reminding me of my Annabelle And my hunger swelled ever more for that pesky little whore Baby, your mother is losing her form in a hospital dorm So stay with me And I'll keep you safe and warm forever more And until this journey's through If you should ask me I'll just tell you Softly, sweetly, "If she's sick or if she's well Only time will tell" Oh ladies and gentlemen of the jury you cannot know the fury that burned in me when she, a cruel little student, stood far too close to me The flurry of youth flies by in the blink of an eye In repetitive scraps like papers in the wind But jury, imagine perhaps those scraps were written in the ink of sin by the demon within that sweet Lo, singing sweet and low And behold how low she can go on the road but she'll never know That baby's mother already lost her form before the hospital dorm I wanted her to stay with me To keep her safe and warm forever more And until this journey's through If you should ask me I'll just tell you softly, sweetly, "If she's sick or if she's well Only time will tell" How softly coarse is the chill of remorse When I had no choice but to melt into a deep reverie of dark blue While my soul moaned over you Oh you little vamp, even from the summer camp your evil infected me I couldn't sleep, it took all of me to be complete when she stood in front of me accusingly just before her defeat Oh what a sad, sad story Of a brute like me and his brunette Nymphet who pushed him over the edge into a sea of sweet regret And oh, Lo, sing sweet and low But behold how low she can go on the road But she'll never know, she'll never know That baby's father is losing his form in a psychiatric ward But you stay with me in memory While the elevator doors ring on every floor Like a school bell, reminds me of my Annabelle and the love I crave While outside in the corridors I hear them say, "If he's sick or if he's well Only time will tell"

Huge thanks to Imre de Jonge who made this record possible. In addition to all the production work, he also once again performed all the drums, bass, percussion, and electric (lead) guitar on this record. His tireless round-the-clock dedication is remarkable and invaluable to me.
