Track Name: Waiting for Hello
Set fire underneath our seven silver ships
Sail them up into the sky
Break through air and out of gravity
Moving forward, flying high
Pack up all your trailing radio wires
Set our coordinates past the sun
Other worlds are waiting far away
We'll wave to each and every one

If I could drink this water
If I could breathe the air
I might have spent my life lying beside you
My heart's electric impulse echoes everywhere
But not one pulse could ground me inside you

Now we are lighting up the dark
We used to fear from far below
Our antennas reaching to the stars
Waiting for hello,
Waiting for hello

Waiting for hello
Track Name: I'll Know
Skate swiftly
My quicksilver quill
When the night falls
Fall quiet and still

Step softly
My dashing young dancer
When you shout in the crowd
And the crowd doesn't give you an answer

And it's hard to explain why you stand in the rain
While the others go out in the snow
And they won't hear your cries all the days you're alive
But I'll know
Mm, I'll know

Rest deeply
Sleep sound
When you're gone
I'll cover your ground

I'll take up your pen and I'll say it again
And I promise I won't let it go
And I'll sit in your chair when there's nobody there
And I'll know
Mm, I'll know

Mm, I'll know
Track Name: Tell Me
Tell me
Tell me child
Tell me why you look so wild
When you lie there
But you're not sleeping
When you sit here
But you're not eating

Tell me
Tell me love
Tell me what you're thinking of
When you sit here
But you're not speaking
When you lie there
When you're hardly breathing

Tell me somehow
Tell me now
Say you're only dreaming
Say it's all a show
Oh why don't you remember
Just tell me it isn't so

Tell me
I don't think I can
Tell me
You'll never understand
Why I'm running but never walking
Why I'm singing but I'm never talking

Tell me somehow
Tell me now
Say you're only dreaming
Say it's all a show
Oh why don't you remember
Just tell me it isn't so
Track Name: The Seed's Plight
You put a seed inside a jar
It waits inside and dreams about
The sunlight and the rain
But you placed it upon a shelf
And never thought of it again
Track Name: Running Out Of
Tell me that you know just how it feels
When you are running out of

Early one morning, I was thinking of you
And as I lay in the sun
I thought up a tune, and I say
Track Name: Invisible Child
Round and round and round and round
The sycamore tree
They were five and we were two
Plus one equals three
Brown eyes, blue eyes, you're nothing like me
Lost boy or lonely girl, what do you see?

Invisible child
When you wander alone
You are ashamed to bear the secret
Of your true name
Track Name: Too Many People
Too many people
Crowding around me
My heart is racing
I'm in a stormy sea
Far away from home
I just could not cope
With too many people
Feeding on their hopes

The clock is racing
But time is standing still
The lights are flashing
To give them all a thrill
As I'm swept away
I find I cannot pass
As one of those people
On the other side of glass

Too many people
Their mouths stretch open wide
I cannot catch my breath
And I cannot hide
Somewhere in the night
A tea kettle screams
But all of those people
Can't hear it in their dreams
Track Name: Something Else
I, I want to be something else
I, I want to be something else
You, when you look at me
You don't see
You don't see
You don't see
Track Name: Alone With You
When I close my eyes to end the day
Hear you move into that corner of your mind
Don't tell me it's just that you can't sleep
I know you sing in the night when I can't speak

Cos I'm alone with you
Yes, I'm alone with you, yes it's true

I dreamed all these words were broken clouds
Pieces swirling in drifts of paper snow
Don't tell me that you don't understand
Felt you move in the dark to take my hand

And I'm alone with you
Yes, I'm alone with you, yes it's true
Track Name: Shut Your Eyes
Shut your eyes, little lady
To the storm that's rushing in
Shut your eyes, little lady
Against the passion and the sin

And if you're looking straight at me
Then I'll be honest as can be
But if you don't like what you see then shut your eyes
Shut your eyes

Shut your eyes, little lady
To the truth you know so well
Shut your eyes, wicked woman
Or it'll send you straight to hell

And if you're looking straight at me
Then I'll be honest as can be
But if you don't like what you see then shut your eyes
Shut your eyes

Shut your eyes, shut your eyes
And if you don't like what you see then shut your eyes
Shut your eyes

Oh I wish I were a sailor,
Sailing out to sea
Cause I've heard of other harbors
Where there are men there just like me

And if you're looking straight at me
Then I'll be honest as can be
But if you don't like what you see then shut your eyes
Shut your eyes
Track Name: Intertwined
You feel like electricity
Your wires are wrapped around me
I can't reset my circuitry
We're intertwined
But I don't mind

When I turn on my mind's T.V.
Your image is all that I can see
Like you are right in front of me
We're intertwined
It's so sublime

I'm analog
But you are digital
And we're so incompatible
And I forgot
Kirchhoff's voltage law
My heart's uninsulatable
And I start to wind down
When you're not around

You fill me up with energy
Creating so much synergy
Electrical Biology
We're intertwined
But I don't mind

I'm analog
But you are digital
And we're so incompatible
And I forgot
Kirchhoff's voltage law
My heart's uninsulatable
And I start to wind down
When you're not around
Track Name: Pretty Boy
Pretty Boy, my Pretty Boy
Though you never did call me by name
I know Pretty Boy that you loved me
And today I still love you the same

Pretty Boy, I love you
Just as much as I did long ago
You never need tell me you loved me
For as long as I live, I'll know

But you're gone, and for years I've been alone
And I'm afraid that my heart's turned to stone
You were my closest friend
Right on up to the end
Pretty boy, I'll never see you again

Pretty Boy, I miss you
And the days just keep rolling along
I still remember how it felt to kiss you
So forgive me if I forget to be strong
Track Name: Brand New Day
Wake up, it's a brand morning
And I brought something for you
The sun is out, there's a new day dawning
The sky is clear and blue

Wake up, you know the birds are all singing
Their voices sing along in rhyme
Come out, the grass is so inviting
It's getting clearer all the time

I know what it's like to be down-hearted
So that you can hardly breathe
Promise you it's gonna get better
It's got to get better
There's gonna be a brand new day
A brand new day

Wake up and throw open your window
We can welcome in the sun
Been so long since the clouds have broken
And I think it's time to have some fun

Wake up, come on the flowers are blooming
Faces reaching way up high
And winters' shadows have finally left us
The trees are sweetening the sky

I know what it's like to be downhearted
So that you can hardly breathe
Promise you it's gonna get better
It's got to get better
Yeah, there's gonna be a brand new day
A brand new day
