Track Name: I Got Nothing But Time
I am too stoned baby to go outside
though the rain comes down
I don't run & hide

I am too stoned baby to lend a hand
I'm all holy ghost
& desert sands

I got nothing
I got nothing but time

I am too stoned baby to live a lie
I can't keep them up
I don't wanna try

I am too stoned baby to be your man
I know you want my love
But you don't understand

I got nothing
I got nothing but time

The tight rope walker he don't hesitate
The midnight ladies they just got to wait
For the smoke to clear & the clouds to rise
Come on, baby, don't make me try

I got nothing
I got nothing but time
Track Name: I'll Find A Home (When I Die)
When I die, Lord, I'll find a home
There'll be no more feeling alone
When I die

Tell my mother that I do miss her
Tell my sister I feel her pain
Tell my brothers I'll be there with them
Tell my father we bleed the same

My friends they help with my burden
The hills, they wash me in rain
Found a ghost that I'll be keeping
To guide me through the fog & the haze

I found a sound I keep repeating
So the angels know me by name
Found a place that is worth staying
Found the road that leads to the gate

When I die, Lord, I'll find a home
There'll be no more feeling alone
When I die
Track Name: Come On, Tell Me
Dead ringer February
Whatcha got for me
Mouth open, white gardens
Slips between your teeth

I feel it, when your coming
A cold blooded chill
Cheek to cheek
Thief to thief
Now there's nothing you can steal

Come on, tell me baby
Who's your man?

White lightning boomerangin'
Pirtched above the scene
Reed Station, Angie Davis gonna
Come fulfill my dream

A San Francisco ocean baby gonna
Come help me heal
Cheek to cheek
Thief to thief
Now there's nothing you can steal

Come on, tell me baby
Who's your man?
Track Name: Strange, How Strange
Up comes Mickey all covered in smoke
His room is electric reverberated messes
He's pensive with worry
'Bout the judge & the jury
Got that Mercury soul

Marcus is driving Lucy, a hearse,
We all took a ride, now, for better or worse
He's a two headed twin
Double image within
Got that attractive curse

Jordan stops by He's on with the Lord
His eyes are on fire to match his desires
He cuts through a dream
Rips open the seams
With his holy sword

Jon comes to rescue with laughter & joke
He weighs it instead, flirts under his breath
He knows to let it slide
What life can deny
& death can denote

Kierstin's a Cancer, got that motherly joy
She rolls with the punches don't make no assumptions
She'll dance & she'll swoon
By the light of the moon
She got a thing for the boys

David is watching what the scene will enjoy
He darts when he walks, he jives when he talks
He got his heart on his sleeve
Defending a dream
That his mind will employ

Reed went to Nashville looking for work
You know, she felt like my sister, lord knows we all missed her
Then Reed had a baby
Her dad was debasing
But she handled the hurt

The Professor is painting sounds for the scape
He speaks his mind strange, he got no time for the plain
He keeps the bullshit away
Holds the ladies at bay
'Till they're hip to his shake

I'm by the river at the close of the day
Listening for a word or a beautiful dirge
Fulfilling the scheme
That was spoke over me
At the moment of birth

So I write what I saw, I sing what I see
Though the vision's retreating I remember the meaning
How strange how strange
To be a part of this place
A dream in a dream
Track Name: Mind Retreats
Forgive me Lord for what I say
Though, you had to know it would be this way
There's a river that is winding it's been picking up behind me
It leads me to that ever opened door
Though I took a look inside all the faces I'd retry
I never found the rosebud of my youth
My thoughts are never ending like an ocean hangs suspended
'Till the levee of my mind retreats

Forgive me mother for when I go asunder
Down there where the words weigh deep
I found that I could hold my breath where wiser men fear to tread
But that doesn't mean I ever learned a thing
I made friends with my shadow, he's a friend to Zapata
Misplaced in a nameless scene
Though his thoughts are never ending like an ocean hangs suspended
'Till the levee of his mind retreats

la da da la da da da

Forgive me friends for when you see a man
Guarding what he holds, discreet
Picture boats upon the water, a man with an order
To guard the light that breathes
Though it's all just a passing breath, a vision of the manifest
You know, the dreamer of dreams
It's thoughts are never ending like an ocean hangs suspended
'Till the levee of my mind retreats

la da da la da da da
Track Name: Lock & Key
I got you right where I want you
I want you right where you are
A million times or more dear
I thought I'd never find you
Standing in the evening rain
Waiting to explain

(oh come on, baby)
I'll be the mirror set you free (oh come on, baby)
You be the lock around my key (oh come on, baby)
Take a lesson from Lou Reed
He won't let you down

(oh come on, baby)
I'll be the mirror set you free (oh come on, baby)
You be the lock around my key (oh come on, baby)
Take a lesson, dear from me
You won't live it down

I left you far behind
But I got you on my mind
Maybe someday baby
We'll live out a dream
Nothing will hold us down
Baby, how's that sound?

(oh come on, baby)
I'll be the mirror set you free (oh come on, baby)
You be the lock around my key (oh come on, baby)
I'll give you what you give to me
If you hold your ground

(oh come on, baby)
I'll be the mirror set you free (oh come on, baby)
You be the lock around key (oh come on, baby)
I'll give you what you give to me
If you like the sound

I'll be the mirror set you free
Track Name: Silver Age
Found my blues with my brother
Got my crown from the gutter
Wrote my name in the Silver Age
With pen & ink all across it's face

You take time like it's nothing
You draw lines over everything
Made my case in the Silver Age
Ships don't sink when they lose their way

I saw Nikolay, I saw Nikolay waving his hands
He was working on the ceasing of tears
He was working on the shores of Abyssinia
When I cried to Nikolay,
"What crown was given to you when God was born?!"

He took a step at me
He took a step

"One who waits in the Silver Age.
Where ships don't sink when they lose their way."
Track Name: Can't Tell My Heart
I waited for you for so long
Thought my dream would come true
Turns out I was wrong

I can't tell my heart, dear
I know I should let you go
I can't tell my heart, dear
You know it just won't stop loving you

I waited for you for so long
But my life without you
Has always felt wrong

I can't tell my heart, dear
I know I should let you go
I can't tell my heart, dear
You know it just won't stop loving you

But whenever you said "Goodbye."
Well, you know I nearly died
Oh, but baby, I believed ya when you told me
When you said that your love was true

I waited for you for so long
Thought my dream would come true
Turns out I was wrong

I can't tell my heart, dear
I know I should let you go
I can't tell my heart, dear
You know it just won't stop loving you

But whenever you said "Goodbye."
Well you know I nearly died
Oh, but baby, I believed ya when you told me
When you said that your love was true

I waited for you
Track Name: You Said It Yourself
Your crooked eyes they won't break my teeth
Your weathered words they won't let your speech
Fold in seven pairs
Your rusted tales won't bless your time
In a cloud of smoke & ghost-like rhyme
Won't conjure hope's refrain
Won't con it into change

Ah, but you said it yourself
There's a grave on top of hell
Where the angels leave their pity bound
Where heaven stops to put it's armor down
We are in between
We are caught between their wars

If your busted cane won't help you walk
It's safe to you're in the dark or
A light is burning out
My stomach turns from it's aging bleach
That keeps in time with awarded sleep
That could hold no keys to days
Or nights or time between

Ah, but you said it yourself
There's a grave on top of hell
Where the angels leave their pity bound
Where heaven stops to put it's armor down
We are in between
We are caught between their wars

I'm staring at the moon
In hopes that I'll go blind
In someone else's news
Embalmed in Holy lies

Ah, but you said it yourself
There's a grave on top of hell
Where the angels leave their pity bound
Where heaven stops to put it's armor down
We are in between
We are caught between their wars
