Track Name: Morning Light
Baby you've been going crazy, now
And its been drivin' me mad
Maybe, I'm just as crazy as you
I kind of like it like that

You can be my only muse
I'd trace along your lines
Gonna love you like I've never lived before
Phoenix into the night

-Chorus-
I know now little darlin' how a
War it rages on inside
With love there is no reason to hide
So go and take in some bright from me
Shine a light for me
Girl it's gonna be alright
I'm sorry I keep singing to you
For the moon in loom,
As the night ends soon in gloom
Keep reviving, alive in beat
Like the blood in me

Kiss me in the morning light
la da da, la da da, la da
(Kiss me in the mornin')
Kiss me

Caught you wondering down a dark road
You saw me shimmer in white
Sound softly, sprinkled up in your ear
Rid of all those snakes in sight, now
Don't you know, that I will always root for you
Even if I'm a ghost
So break free, honey
Don't forget you're true
Ever keeping me close

-Chorus-
I know now little darlin' how a
War it rages on inside
With love there is no reason to hide
So go and take in some bright from me
Shine a light for me
Girl it's gonna be alright
I'm sorry I keep singing to you
All the truth in tune
As the day goes soon in bloom
Keep reviving, alive in beat
Like the blood in me

Ain't gonna let you bleed tonight
la da da, la da da, la da
(Ain't gonna let you bleed)

So kiss me in the morning light

Found some might in you
So cured; incline
Can't be held to help myself
Never, ever, wanted
To see you go
Forever in deep blue

I'm sorry if I sing to you
So many songs
You may not want me to
You've become alive in me, ahh

Kiss me in the morning light
Track Name: South Athen Sunday
Wake up in the morning
Coffee brewed & soon
I'm brush to the tee
Fixin' my shades on

Down a lift & groovin' Beatles
Up the road now park to the beat
Dancing as I've been

All my life, steady
Working for the freedom to say
Shine on in your cleverly mystical way
Another season, let you go
& open up to the play, oh
I'll see you on a Sunday

All my might
Hauling hours for the paper to pay
For my rights
& the bills creep, crawl in to lay
Another reason, let it go
& rise on up from the stray

Hey, hey
I'll see you on a Sunday

Beat down, I am
Beat down, I am
Beat down,
I'll see you on a Sunday

I'll see you on a sunny day
Track Name: Gallows Humour
Down by the lake
Through fields of grey
Where I may find you

The moon shine
Crisp from the night
A lost will to fight
For purpose or truth

Oh darlin'
All that I wanted
My true love
Wildfire ride off with the wind
My lungs keep calling her name
For the light, that aligns me again
Align me again

Back from the mist
To where we exist
And fit our design

It'd be great
To scream we're alive
Refuse to be had
Say that you're mine

[Chorus]

Months roll on by
Still out of sight
And not yet awake

You play and you lie
A quite sad delight
I'm just a muse to your sins
Guess Masha was right
Track Name: Feed the Stars
Smile but the whites kept turning black
Felt the fear hear it's echo in the mirror spoken back at me
You are the lie
Star-crossed into…

I pull myself together take it breath at a time
I've slowed for the moment- where I design to be
So, Baby go on

-chorus-
Where we find the joy
When we sing it's anthem out
See the spring sent to summer
Like a lion fly one with the breeze
For what it's worth in toys
On the morn' the sun will climb out
I'll tell you that I love you girl
Gonna feed the stars, crossing into the light
For your eye to seek

Punching through these hours, getting harder to dig
The flashing glimpse off into paradise, from baby to kid
Is he gone?
And how do I find?
Star-crossed into now…

No one ever taught us how to love who we love
But I'm learning to be better
Never known enough
To be free
I want to be free

-chorus-
Where we find the joy
When we sing it's anthem out
See the spring sent to summer
Like a lion fly one with the breeze

For what it's worth in toys
On the morn' the sun will climb out
I'll tell you that I love you girl
Gonna feed the stars, crossing into the light
For your eye to seek

California,
Bring me up to where your angels fly
Through the depths of the heavens
From the rage in the streets
This dream still lingers on
and on and on…
Californ-I-A
If the palm and the wave
Trace the hurt away
Well, I'm sold
Ahh..
Might die here singing

"Oh, Cathedral I'm tired of my sins
With an innocent like you I'd be more apt to play again
Oh, Cathedral bless these notes for one day when
All the inner sense be found once more
And I'm dancing in the rain"

-chorus-
Where we find the joy
When we sing it's anthem out
See the spring sent to summer
As the lions fly one with the breeze

For what it's worth in toys
On the morn' the sun will climb out
I'll tell you that I love you girl
Gonna feed the stars, crossing into the light
For your eye to seek
Track Name: The Good Guys
We used to be heroes
Walkin' down the line
Tried into true
Solely gallant a view
Only valor, infused of mind

We used to be heroes, ahh

[Chorus]
Breathing for the soul of the land
We were the good guys
Heart over hand
As the mire and sly died
Brawlin' for the truth
In the spin of the webbed lies
Ooo, we be the good guys

Peace with the land
We aim to make Love stand
For you and I
All the strangers in passerby
Grip onto the hue
In the wash of the gold eyes
Ooo, we be the good guys

With so much going on today
News cry loud, a beating sigh
Greed rides high,
Shady leaders waltz on by

Such a brutal embezzlement
Feeding off the poor,
And the middle too
Sly you ought to die
Stake to take our freedoms due

We used to be heroes, ahh

[chorus]

Grew up thinking we all stood like Justice
Laughing through the day, so tall, and fearless
Welcome to the vision, of which God with you
What is right, what pulls, to that before you
Track Name: Orphée
If I wrote about you babe
Would you make my grace fall true?
If I thought about you, baby
Keep me, oh
Now keep me next to you

Keep talking like we're gonna start
Lip sultry gonna bag my bag of hearts

Move me to the light

We were young
And never let the noise
Break and take a trace of our soul

Now we grow older, brake
She told you like a soldier
In a war from the head, and slow

-Chorus-
Low, down below
I find my ghost
Beneath the neon sheet, so
Pull me to the River
Should you greet me in the deep
Where all I see is, you
As the night goes on,
And the days turn gone
I can be with you

If I wrote about you dear
Would you help to ease my mind?
If I thought about you dearly
Hold me in the warm
My brazen-eyed

Try fightin', but you know I'm right
Body achin', go and move me the light

Move me to the light

We led a moment
If the true were ever present
Set in motion for akrasia

Wish we could have met
In cross of other passes
Lend a notion, enkrateia

-Chorus-
Low, down below
I find my ghost
Beneath the neon sheet, so
Pull me to the River
Should you greet me in the deep
Where all I see is, you
As the knife goes on,
And the graves turn gone
I can be with you

Not knowing the cloth
Behind our tie
We'd grow the same
Beyond our time
(Tangled in a lie)
I'll always know
So true,
that I may love

Come hell, high water
I'll be free
For you, your angel
Follow me

I can be an Orphan
Fit to find my way
Brawl 'neath the ocean floor
Body down, by weight
Sunlight to guide me,
Clean air my lungs may breathe.
Lifted ashore that day
I was, coming home to stay
I'll be with you
I'll be with you
