All Things Change

all things change
never rest, never sure
what is worth
fighting on for

all things change
never rest, never sure
what is worth
fighting on for

all things change
around
all is faith
unwound

I found a lead
a single furtive reason
my senses reeled
in seeking youthful madness
I trust belief belongs to me
someone will come
to spit the seed
a single weed gets respect
Ill change my quills to break the will
forever must hold

all things strain
be they changed
be they fair
be they hope
masked as care

all things change
never rest, never sure
what is worth
fighting on for

all things change
never rest, never sure
what is worth
hangin on for

you might
be there
God knows
skies stare
taste dirt
you hurt
swallow
shallow
forgive
this day
summon
courage
no light
comes in
shadows
laughin

all things change
never rest, never sure
what is worth
fighting on for

we can change the world

Mina Loy (M.O.H.)

the siren calls outside
they want to kill us all
innocents, wounded souls
full of rage
nowhere to go
consequences be they may
I resolve to never change
I so vow to never yield

can I give my old heart TO YOU?

cause when this feeling starts
thats when I blow it all away

here, youre born theyll say
to die afraid, to lie awake

its plain the wars have won
the days of judgement rise
for innocents, wounded souls
how could they know?
theyre burning cold
paranoias be they may
I resolve to never change

can I give my old heart TO YOU?

cause when this feeling starts
thats when I rip it all apart

alright!
the ends in sight
were born to die
one thousand times

Im just one wish away
Im just one wish away from you kid
Im just one wish away
Im just one wish away from you kid
Im not so innocent
Im not so innocent now kid

can I give my old heart TO YOU?
my old heart

The Camera Eye

listen, listen
this is mark I cannot place
this is the wish I dare not leave
time uncovers what is keeping still
I unaware move against my will

simon says, pass on by
passions wane, stragglers weep
hungers fight for the camera eye

hold me so
Ill never let you go
stay with me for a while
(while I sleep)

momma squeeze
grace my spine
walk on thru the camera eye

listen, listen
this is the name I cannot speak
this is the flame I dare not douse
here, things are
well never get that far
close enough to die a time or two or three

stretch my skin
restless gods
maybe turn my heart of hearts
deposit change in the camera eye

who needs pain to survive?
I need pain TO CHANGE MY LIFE
in gentle myths and turning leaves we all come to bury truth

honey choose my wet dream
a naked soul just has to grieve
if I bleed, the camera cries
no one doubts the camera eye

move fast forward thru the camera eye
move fast forward thru the camera eye
the camera eye
the camera eye
------------------

To Love Somebody

theres a light
a certain kind of light
that never shone on me
I want my life to be
lived with you, lived with you
theres a way
everybody said
to do each and every little thing
but what does it bring
if I aint got you, aint got you

you dont know what its like
you dont know what its like
to love somebody, to love somebody
the way I love you

its the same
I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
you aint got to be so blind
am I so blind, blind to believe?
Im a man
cant you see
this is what I am
I live and breathe for you
but what good does it do, if I aint got you?

you dont know what its like
you dont know what its like
to love somebody, to love somebody
the way I love you
------------------

A100

stay with me
just a little
lay with me
just a little
stay with me
just a little more

YOU ARE LOVE
YOU ARE SOUL
YOU ARE REAL TO ME

some might say my love devours you whole
some might say that life is my love

fools like us remind me trust
the way I feel surround you up

some might say my love is reaching you
some might say that life is waiting
alone

YOU ARE LOVE
YOU ARE SOUL
YOU ARE TEARS
YOU I KNOW

and I could love you
I could love you home
and all I ask for is that I love you
that I love you more
I would say empty things have empty dreams that find me

some might say my love devours you whole
some might say that life is my love

fools like us remind me trust
the ways I feel surround you up

and I could love you, I could love you home
in ways I feel surround you

YOU ARE LOVE
YOU ARE REAL
YOU ARE SOUL
YOU I FEEL

stay with me just a little more

cause fools like us remind me trust
the ways I feel LOVE
do I feel love?
------------------

DIA

I receive
your signal, down
so you see
I found you out
shoot the lights well get out right and follow this heart
shoot the lights well get out right and follow this heart
something fades away
I never lost you
circle my mistakes
I never lost you for good
aint I somethin
I feel nothin
I could never hide
am I bluffin?
am I just denied?

mirror, mirror
reflect this scream
Ive held my belief
beside these dreams

I cant guess where well be tomorrow
just one wish
rumours of tomorrow
can I face tomorrow with you?

to the nines
you want it all
I perceive youll sell me out
shoot the lights well get out right and swallow this heart
shoot the lights well get out right in time

mirror, mirror
reflect this scream
Ive held my belief
beside these dreams

can I face tomorrow with you?
can I face tomorrow with you?
drag me to the hollows and choose


the lanterns swing, the swans lie low
we stand alone

aint I somethin
I feel nothin
I cant help but try
am I bluffin?
have I just denied?

mirror, mirror
Ive lingered long
perchance to dream the sweetest dream
mirror, mirror
reflect this scream
for dreams that long to be

can I face tomorrow with you?
can I face tomorrow with you?
drag me to the hollows and choose alone
choose the loss
choose the sea
the longest walk
------------------

Now (and Then)

peace colours
whats left of mine
I used to find
pennies crushed on tracks
its a long way back to the station

now and then
I could be a friend
I could be a friend
now and then
now and then to you
I could be a friend of use
so hide me when you go
back amongst the reeds

cable coils
around my neck
whatevers best
it seems insane to me
cant escape the family tree
roots are buried deep
deep as you can climb
Ill do
I could be a friend to you

now and then
I could be a friend
now and then
I could be a friend
now and then to you
I could be a friend of use
no second chance at this
Ill watch you making love with them

build a fire
behind the school
come and visit soon
if youre blue and alone
hold my hand theyre coming back for more
theres always one more score
Im sure to balme for this
Ive got to get this change through and through


now and then
I could be a friend
I could be a friend
now and then
I could be a friend
I could be a friend
now and then
now and then
------------------

Im Ready

Im ready
oh Lord Im ready
Im ready, ready, ready to roll
ready to leave
Im ready
oh Lord Im steady now
Im ready, ready, ready to flee
ready to turn

its your fascination I could live without
too much information leaves my heart no doubt
oh Lord Im ready now
Im ready, ready, ready to know
ready to learn

push the world away from your life
cast away the pearls that bring their swine to us
whatever shatters light has no right

conversations spill your will
conversations I cant feel
Im ready
Im ready

Im ready
oh Lord Im patient now
whoever I was wanting to be
I already am

tell me alienation hasnt found you out
too few condemnations fill your heart with doubt

oh Lord Im ready now
oh Lord Im ready
oh Lord Im ready now
Im ready to throw away the world from your life
cast away the pearls that bring their swine to us
whatever shatters light has no right

conversations say you will
conversations I cant feel
Im ready
Im ready

conversations spill your will
conversations they cant steal
Im ready
ready for love
Im ready
ready for love
Im ready
ready for love
Im ready

Walking Shade

look at ya now
look at ya
torn estates
took forever
couldnt wait on words, on sound

I just want you so
youre everything, so cold
the perfume of your rose in bloom
I just want you so
anywhere I go
the chase, the bells below
taken from my soul

on the 9th day God created shame

Im out walking shade
to brush these fires aside
to calm the rising fight
to build you a new life

should you choose
Ive picked the best for you
its your turn and my time to test
Ill second guess the rest

look at ya now
look at ya
nothins faced
took advantage of my faith and called me out

I just want you so
youre everything Im told
dumb enough to scold this tongue
I just want you so
anywhere I go
a kingdom for your rain
a pocket for your soul
I just want you so
youre everything although
the risk is getting close to you

Im out walking shade
the sun is going out
the word is getting round
that I just want you so
------------------

Sorrows (in blue)

first touch and listen
I light the light
shell come in blushes
so I must hide
make sure on pages
we never die

(in blue) theres changes that never stray
false starts that draw the shine of rage
I touch the face of my own age
cause nothing yet has blessed me yet from
sorrow
sorrow
sorrow

come what may
its here I must wait
to keep the dogs at bay
ok? ok
sorrow
sorrow

under a moment your eyes turned blue
I choose to love you and never lose
stay true and sign the cross in you
(slain by Cain)

dear love, come what may
let fear charge the gates
Im here, Im here, Im here,
here to stay
Ok, ok
sorrow
sorrow
sorrow
------------------

Pretty, pretty STAR

wind a spire survey the hours Im secrets, secrets
spillin on the floor
find a love a just because I need you, so much
beggin till Im poor
wanting so much more this hurts kid
strangers find the eyes, just the same

every time I start
reachin out to find you
loneliness abounds
pretty, pretty STAR
only you remind me
that only you can find me, in you
in all I choose

wait remind my life is mine so many travelers
carry past the word
flowers jake the sun afraid Im blinkin softly
wishin on your name
wonderin who to blame next, low this
crawlin towards the door, just the same

every time I start
reachin out to find you
loneliness abounds
pretty, pretty STAR
only you remind me
that only love can blind
every time I start
emptiness confounds me
loneliness astounds me
pretty, pretty STAR

do you know where I am right now?
pretty, pretty STAR
emptiness surrounds me
loneliness confounds
pretty, pretty STAR
only you remind me
that only love can find
me

Strayz

the gifts I share
the love I kept inside for you
theres no one there but failed soldiers
and dare we feel
we shared a light that wont go out
but goes on
whats farther than the noonday sun?

you know Im true
I wasnt born to follow
you know Im true
I wasnt born to follow
you are what you are to me
you are what you are to me

I take things down
I play chess from both sides now
theres no regrets
just junk sayings
what is the price if you wont play?

you know Im true
wasnt born to follow
you know Im true
wasnt born to follow
you stay with me
you stay with me when I go
you know Im true
wasnt born to follow
yeah yeah
you know Im true
wasnt born to follow
