Track Name: Yellow Star
Hold a piece of the pie
Grab a piece of the background
A different piece of the sky – there’s a
A different day in the foreground
Catch a ride You can hide Underneath

Think that things aren’t the same
You’re thinking this ain’t the answer
Smoky room, yellow lights – running low
Out the back door
Breathe the air This is where You can start

doo doo doo doo doo doo - yellow star
doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo doo doo – yellow star – out my window
Breathe the air This is where You can start

Catch the scent of the sea
Spilling cold, feeling gloomy
But there’s an answer for me – there’s a
There’s a way you can soothe me
Lend a hand Understand Yellow Star

Lend a hand Understand Yellow Star

If you’re facing tomorrow
Shadows tracing the formula
Minnows chasing the biggest fish in the pool
That’s the new rule
Time to change

Catch a ride You can hide Underneath
Lend a hand Understand Yellow Star
Track Name: Long Black Veil
Ten years ago on a cool dark night
There was someone killed 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene and they all did agree
That the man who ran looked a lot like me

The judge said "Son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die"
I spoke not a word although it meant my life
I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave where the night winds wail
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

The scaffold was high and eternity neared
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil she cries over my bones
Track Name: We Can Dream
We Can Dream

Waiting, mistaking – this feeling of fate for the truth
I’m hating, reshaping – the hole that reminds me of you
Facing, erasing the sorrow
Faking, I’m taking it through
We’re walking and talking tomorrow
Shaking, I’m aching for you

When I need you, I burn so deep inside
Can’t believe you, I’ve waited and denied
That I want you, I dream that we can be back together
We can dream

Night becomes day becomes darkness
Morning gets stuck in my head
I’m feeling my way past the markers
A shark doesn’t see where it heads

We can dream
We can be together, we can dream

Thought I saw you, waiting for a ride
Couldn’t be you – with someone close beside
Wouldn’t think you could be so tenderly holding on
Could you feel that strong? Could you feel?
Track Name: Put Us Away
Life is good, feeling fine
But trouble comes from behind
Shifting winds, sifting through
Don’t wanna see that weight upon you

River’s calm, water’s cool
But underneath this silent pool
Troubles brew, ripples grow
Where it leads, don’t wanna know

Take away the weight of the moment

Feel the pulse of the day

Gauge the span, the width of the gap – the unknown component

Think it could put us away

So you think you know everyone’s limits?
I guess you know the heat of the sun
You wouldn’t know the number of minutes
The number of hours that’s left to run

Think it could put us away
Think it could put us away
Track Name: She's a Gouge
She’s a Gouge

A cardboard face, with paint
She got jello legs, tight pants

A hollow smile, grey teeth
Body made of cheese, her skin reeks

She’s a Gouge
She’s a Gouge
She’s a Gouge
She’s a Gouge

Don’t look at her too close
She thinks she’s fine, fashion clothes

She glides along in her world
And no one knows what she is
Track Name: gogogo
Track Name: Deeper Green
Track Name: Are Friends Electric?
It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette

Now the light fades out
And I'm wondering what I'm doing in a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought I remembered you

now I'm alone
I can think for myself
I just don't understand
I don't think I meant anything to you
anything to you…

So I open the door
It's the `friend' that I'd left in the hallway
"Please sit down"
A candle lit shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But, are `friends' electric?
You see, mine's broke down
And now I've no one to love

And it hurts
I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
You see it meant everything to me
everything to me…
