    Nothing of Concern 03:04

    lyrics

    You’re eating sun-dried tomatoesand the sun is heating upEverything’s going to stopYou’re living on automaticShe will find a place to goSure as hell her mind is on the moveAnd you don’t knowwhy she’s running far from youBut I do - and I keep it just for meAnd you don’t knowwhere she’s gonna rest her bonesAnd the duel will be hardfor she knows where to hurtListen to your wild disquietFeel your heart is breaking downEverything falls apartShe was the sun, you’re a shadowShe will find a way to burnShe’s a shooting star, she’s gone too soonAnd you don’t knowwhy she’s running far from youYeah, I do - but I keep it just for meAnd you don’t knowwhere she’s gonna rest her bonesAnd the duel will be hardfor she knows where to hurtEverything you wrap is fragileShe was mine and she’s been yoursYou don’t need to charge a postage-you don’t need to pass through customs-‘cause there’s nothing of concernAnd you don’t knowwhy she’s running far from youYeah, I do - yeah, she did it just for meAnd you don’t knowwhere she’s gonna rest her bonesAnd the duel will be hardfor she knows how to loveKeep eating sun-dried tomatoes

    Stalking Heads 03:58

    lyrics

    You, you love my mindCan you please just leave my past behind?All the people gone...All the nights I sang with Yoko and John...I don’t wanna be loved by youI just wanna be there, girl next doorYou can make all my dreams come trueSoftlyEverything gets misunderstoodwhen I think of the mess we’ve built upI can take the blame but I feel blueYou beyond the wallListen to my screams and my phone callsMeet me on the ledgewait for me at the landing of the stairsI don’t wanna be loved by youI just wanna be there, girl next doorYou can make all my dreams come trueSoftlyEverything gets misunderstoodwhen I think of the mess we’ve built upI can take the blame but I feel blueAnd every night I dream of you knocking at my doorBehind the curtain you hide and I wonder what goes onAt every residents meeting I argue about your dogBut when you’re goneI miss your wooden shoesWhat can I do?I don’t wanna be loved by youI just wanna be there, girl next doorYou can make all my dreams come trueSoftlyEverything gets misunderstoodwhen I think of the mess we’ve built upI can take the blame but I feel blueYou, you love my mind…

    B-Flat Love 03:25

    lyrics

    Maybe this is just a songFor the seasons yet to comeFor the lovers of one dayFor a no more crowded placeMaybe this is just a songBorn too many lives agoYears of drama and bad romanceWaiting for another chanceB-flat loveB-flat love, babeCan’t get enough of this B-flat loveMaybe this is B-flat loveAlways mine and never yoursLooking for a better wayTo reinvent the wheel againMaybe this is B-flat lovePut a mark on every wordMany things have gone to hellFor the manner they were spelledB-flat loveB-flat love, babeCan’t get enough of this B-flat loveOh my love, oh my loveOh my love, nevermoreShe’s committed to the showShe’s committed nothing wrongB-flat loveB-flat love, babeCan’t get enough of this B-flat loveEvery day I climb a wallto forget the way we wereEvery memory looks smallAs I see it from aboveEvery day I write a songFor the Universe’s starsTo fill up the quiet spacePlanets revolution’s on

    Gardeners at Night 03:38

    lyrics

    I can’t tell how everything fell in ruins…You can try to be hard and standup against human naturebut I’m gonna hurt you this timeI won’t beg your pardon tonightAnd if you wanna save your skindon’t you dare chewing over‘Cause I’m running faster than lightAnd nothing is larger than lifeI won’t tell you war is overCrawling on the floorWhen the darkness takes your bonesyour blood cells lose controlOver time they can understandwhat they call your behaviourBut you’re gonna come through this fightThey’re not gonna stop your being wildIn between there’s no place to beHang by a thread or a deadwoodAnd I wanna carve it tonightYes I’m gonna cut it tonightI won’t tell you war is overCrawling on the floorWhen the darkness takes your bonesyour blood cells lose controlWords crumble falling downI see you drownIn love withMajor keys happinessJust take a restFrom your fearsI won’t tell you war is overCrawling on the floorWhen the darkness takes your bonesyour blood cells lose control

    My Friend Tim 02:20

    lyrics

    My friend Tim has another mindsetHe fills dreams with a swarm of chords and claimsthat everything you call insaneis hiving in your brainwith cricket chirps that can’t be toldMy friend Tim, in the mouth of madnessHe finds bees on a satellite, he swearsthat everyone has got to escapeto get released from painand find a way to breathe like a child againThe colours of the rainbowLight up the stageThe faded foggy swamps are far awayThe dawning on the mount slopemarks the dayI return to myself‘Cause everyone has got to escapeto get released from painand find a way to breathe like a child againMy friend Tim gave me another mindset

    The Accidentalist 04:22

    lyrics

    Paper actors exploding in the crowdPeals of thunder suspended in the skyPraying mantes devouring hornets’ brainsCelebration of cruelty among all speciesYou’re a fight you’ll never give upthe line on the mapYou’re the border that you need to crossBelieve in nerve cells and linksWe’re cogs in the wheelWe’re quavers in a symphonyBroken workers go marching down the townBurning airplanes are crashing to the groundPapal encyclicals against the faithEvery word of love’s falling on deaf earsYou’re a fight you’ll never give upthe line on the mapYou’re the border that you need to crossBelieve in nerve cells and linksWe’re cogs in the wheelWe’re quavers in a symphonyAnywhere you want to goAnytime you feel so lowAnd the clouds come down too fastAnd the rain is turned to dustAnd your time is running slowCry a river, feel its flowTake a picture of your heartTurn the tide and win your mindYou’re a fight you’ll never give upthe line on the mapYou’re the border that you need to crossBelieve in nerve cells and linksWe’re cogs in the wheelWe’re quavers in a symphony

    Murmurations 08:01

    lyrics

    Darkness made my eyes blindYou can take my whole lifeI can’t see the cirrus cloudsHarbingers of your divine loveHear the raindrops falling downHide and take my mind apartAtoms floating all aroundHeartbeats take control of timeI’m walking in front of youI can hear your breath behind my stepsI’m lost if you call my nameI promise I won’t look back, I swearTo bring you back to lifeDarkness made my heart blindSilence fills my mind with liesI can see the sighed way outLight awakens any doubtsI’m walking in front of you-Don’t leave me back-I can’t hear your breath behind my stepsI’ll turn if you call my name-Please take my hand-I promised I won’t look back-Orpheus-Just before you were outGods tear you out of my sightI will play my lyreI will play till I die this songJust before you were outI’ll grieve your loss among the beasts-till I die-Gods tear you out of my sight I’ll grieve your loss among the trees -till I die-I’ll grieve your loss among the beastsI’ll grieve your loss among the treesTo bring you back to life
