Track Name: Anchor Heart
"Anchor Heart"
She said run as fast as you can. i'm not what I appear to you to be,
Love is a violent act when feeding the fire of a jealous heart.

Anchor Heart, I find you in the night time,
tomes of glistening skin
infatuation is it?
And so I am committed
This is an illusion,
Pain to take the pain away.
I see your bodies outline on the bed we once shared.
Sweet and spiteful venom
Ghosts of christmas past
without you in my arms, I don't want arms anymore

Anchor Heart
I'm grounded in the moment, and set this spirit free
if you inhabit my thoughts, I know you think of me.

Anchor Heart
II'm burned inside the fire, And razors in your words
though you will try to cut me, you favor it yourself.

Anchor Heart
I'd gladly be the martyr or dedicate the art
To the higher purpose, Of winning back your heart
Track Name: Can Not Stop the Rain
"Can Not Stop The Rain"
I've been feeling slightly jaded, a little insecure.
In an ocean of a romance, and I can not find the cure.
Cause our histories the same, I'm just waiting for the rain.

We've been making so much progress on the process of belief,
With our heads stuck up on cloud 9, and the Earth beneath our feet
on this bright and shiny day, I'm just waiting for the rain.
Come with me, underneath our tree and let it fall all around us
Cause you can not stop the rain.
Track Name: Tequila, Kisses
Tequila, Kisses
Walking, Moonlight.
Pillows, Iron, Orange, Cheese cake
Black and White or Color, We are Made of these

Poems, Silver, Hand rolled cigarettes.
trotsky, Frida, Navels, Bayonets.
Black and White or Color, We are Made of these
Still or Motion, We are made of these.
Track Name: Lighter
Hard Shell,
Gotta break through somehow, Raindrops of recollection, I pray for an umbrella to weather the Storm.
On the wind, destination, Higher Ground.
Lighter and Lighter and lighter and lighter.

Cut the tether to be born, a stronger son to mourn the passing of a day.
Stand up your intuition, manifest fruition, the bird and the caw.
Ripples quiet the chatter of the mind.
Lighter and lighter and lighter and lighter.
Track Name: In the Sun
2am im alone,
Sheets are cold and no one's home
A cavern full of water, and the surface is pristine
An open window's inviting me to stare upon the stars,
Far away, far away, yet almost close enough to touch.
Close my eyes and once again, Im a babe in side the womb
So resembling a tomb, where I rest my weary head.
dust to dust we once return, just the ashes of a burn
from the heat of a relationship that flutters like a bird

in the sun, in the sun
Like a warm embrace from a love.
In the sun, in the sun.
Its the innocence I miss and i wish I could return
in the interim I'll chill and let anxiety pass through me,
like I'm chasing snack from Scooby in the sun

A promise is a promise, sacred treaty of the land,
whose fundamental principles no human could disband
And I'll walk along the beach just where the ocean meets the sand
And pray to JAH that i am cleansed with every tide and ebb
but if only for a moment, I'm relieved of all concern.
I'll disengage my turrets and lay down my weary arms.
I can only hope to be the safest place someone can land,
but this struggle for control has plagued us since the dawn of man

in the sun, in the sun
Like a warm embrace from a love.
In the sun, in the sun.
Its the innocence I miss and i wish I could return
in the interim I'll chill and let anxiety pass through me,
like I'm reading sheets by Rumi in the sun.
Track Name: Simple Hands
Simple Hands, Simple Hands
Up against a wall, neck receives the warm.
Thick and Quickend breath
Take a chance, Take a chance
All the world at play
in the back of a cafe
turned on by a sigh

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa
Smile and be quiet
Mona Lisa Pull your hair
up escape the fire

Simple Hands, Simple Hands
Smoothing out your clothes
A little death is good
(on a ) dark and story night

Push your luck, push your luck
In the grandest style.
born to be wild
With these simple hands, Simple hands.
Track Name: Roland Ramos (Written by Richard Thompson) - Turning of the Tide
How many boys, one night stands
how lany lips, how many hands have held you
Like I'm holding you tonight
Too many nights, staying up late,
too much powder, too much paint
Can't hide format he turning of the tide

Did they run their fingers up and down your shabby dress
did they find some tender moment there in your caress.
the boys all say she looks so fine, won't come back for a 2nd time.
you can't hide format he turning of the tide

Poor little sailor boy, never set eyes on a woman before.
did he promise to love you forevermore?
Pretty little shoes, cheap perfume, Creaking bed in a hotel room.
Can't hide from the turning of the tide.

Did they run their fingers up and down your shabby dress
did they find some tender moment there in your caress.
the boys all say she looks so fine, won't come back for a 2nd time.
you can't hide format he turning of the tide
Track Name: Balladen Fredrick and Cecilia Lind
Near Gotenburg Seacoast, an orchestra plays.
The full moon is shining like glass through the haze.
they dance cheek to cheek as accordions begin
Fred Singer and Cecilia Lind

, and his heart beat she feels,
they float through the air as they swing on their heels
He leads as she follows, as light as the wind.
Oh Why are you blushing Cecilia Lind

Could it be something Fred Singer had said
"Your face and your perfume, have gone straight to my head
Your figure is lovely, and "tres feminine"
My god you're so pretty, Cecilia Lind"

the band finished playing, where would they go now.
the place where she lived was by his anyhow
They arrived at her gate, and before going in,
"I want you to kiss me" said Cecilia Lind.

Shame on you Freddy, Your old hearts gone wild,
Cecilia Lind is still only a child
As pure as a flower, unblemished by sin
"I'm soon 17", said Cecilia Lind

And the hours drift away in the stars magic light
though Freddy is old, there's a new moon tonight.
They say love is blind, you may lose you may win
"Oh, kiss me again" Said Cecilia lind.
Track Name: Wasted Again
sloe gin, and i'm drowning again in the bottle I've taken as family and friend.
Comfornt in the numbness of skin, poisonous posture akimbo
this time I've fallen to pieces, no rhyme or reason in this hole
Drunk town, population of 1, another round, I'll drink coffee instead"

Wasted, wasted again, There's holes in my walls and inside my head
Ruby, ruby red, the color of my wine stained lips.

Day Two, wake up at noon, peeling my face off the pillow.
One mile format he bed to the bathroom, dreaming of morning Mimosas
Beer Pong, I'm the champion, at cards, I'm always the asshole
So long to the hair fo the dog, through the fog I'll drink coffee instead

Lips on the brim of a tall white russian,
high ball in the mall while I'm sneaker shopping
Sipping champagne gets me in the mood,
Straight drinking Alize, I can't pronounce tanqueri,
Balls out on Irish car bombs, I'll drink anything but the water from the bong.
Never been to TJ, but the worm and I are close,
1 Tequila, 2 Tequila, 3 Tequila, FLOOR

Ruby, Ruby. White wine or red it all goes to my head.
Sacre Blu, I'll drink coffee instead.
Track Name: Sit Down
Sit down and talk to me about love, is it that fairy tale that begins and ends with you, oh please don't go
Sit down, and talk to me of romance, is it that time and chance or that fleeting chance that makes your whole world just Stop.
Is it when I hold you till your skin is mine, my love.
Like the surf to the sand, i take your hand and we dive
I'm right here. I'm right here.
Track Name: China Doll
Well you're looking like a china doll, i wanna get you in that spot tonight
the reggae starts to vibe, this smokey club just feels so right.

And I wanna ask you lady, what would you say, if I wanna vibe with you
And I wanna ask you lady, what would you say, if we drop a dime in SoHo tonight

this ain't no techno club, but we can take a little trip tonight
On the West Side, I'm gonna show you everything.

And I wanna ask you lady, what would you say, if I wanna vibe with you
And I wanna ask you lady, what would you say, if we drop a dime in SoHo tonight

You're dancing hot like a Soca Queen, My thoughts tonight, they're all obscene
Come on, we'll take a chance, Rub a dub, ya feel this romance. We'll take a big trip tonight
Track Name: Art School Girl
Art School girl, Where ya been, The shows been over for an hour and ten
All the cars ahem pulled away, I've got five drink tickets and it's last call
And I wanna rock with you.

Art School girl, you live on a farm.
Blah Blah Blah, you're favorite song. There's an after party going on.
You know this town, so we're following y'all.

thick black lines across a canvas, the parties live, and its right next to campus.
the more you talk, the more you prove yourself a shrew…and then 5.0 rolled up.
The party moved to Arcadia Hills, Art School girl fell asleep at the wheel.
Took a dive off of fall creek drive. Its kinda sad, and I'm fixing to grieve,

But that night on the lake, with the moon on your face, looking over a gorgeous view. that life would be lovely, yes life would be lovely up here.
Track Name: Eliza
Eliza likes to have peace of mind, and an herb garden box
Sweet like pie, my vegan pie, with a sleeve of tattoos.
Oh, would you like to lay around, help me feel the ground eliza.
Eliza make your way, the worlds turning once again.

two freshly baked breads, keeps a tree in the den.
Yoga mat, calico cat, unwinding time.
Oh, Would you like to stay a while.
Oh, help me feel the ground Eliza.
Eliza make your way, the worlds turning once again.
Track Name: Two More Minutes Please
Sunlight greets us on this bed plush you say "2 more minutes please"
Morning intrudes upon our spoon, you say "2 More minutes please"
Oh baby go to sleep, take all the time you need.
Sunday morning, rest in peace: 2 more minutes please.

I'll bring breakfast, you pull me back in, Share a laugh with me
time does march on when we're having fun, 2 more minutes please
So calm and so serene, enveloped by the breeze
and to have you in my arms.
this close to you I fall apart, I'm nothing but a heart and
the smile that you bring to me. "2 more minutes please"
