Track Name: Forgotten Language
Forgotten Language
Somewhere there's a silent shout
There's a hollow ear set to the ground
Somewhere there's a Forgotten Language
Lost in a pages turn
In the fire of a controlled burn
Somewhere there's a Forgotten Language

Somewhere in the keen intent
Of iron upon steel
Courage bats a wary eye
But somehow remains still
Polishing the rusted days
While oiling the wheel
To roll on and on and on

Come on let's shout it out
Someones got to make a sound
Somewhere there's a Forgotten Language
Don't tip toe through your doubt
Pull your hollow ear from the ground
Somewhere there's a Forgotten Language

Somewhere in the good intent
of fending for our own
Courage bats a wary eye
But settles to the feel
Polishing the rusted days
While oiling the wheel
To roll on and on and on

Anchient tongues are screaming at a distance
But they go Forgotten
Track Name: All My Friends
I think of all my friends
I forgot my face
I think of all my friends
I think of all my friends
I think of all my friends
We took a ride through the mountain pass
Old friends and lovers
I think of all my friends

Ohhhh, come on over and turn a light on
Ohhhh, respect and love

Another week goes by
I think of all my friends
Another week goes by
Where have you been
Where have you been
Taken' stranger's pain
Did you drink away the night
or fall in love with a ghost like foul

Ohhhh, come on over and turn a light on
Ohhhh, don't take too long

Respect and Love....................
Track Name: Gold-Flecked Morning
The slow
many movements of
your marble hands
they left me cringing
with the weight of tomorrow
But I'll
never know the world
in which you stand
but come
there's no need
for bitter sorrow

And that was when
the gold-flecked morning
backed me up in your corner
your temptress eyes always wake me
So bury your many sins
remember that lonely train ride you took
all the way to the west coast
There's a third eye in the mirror
yes it knows your hidden names
Track Name: Heira
Heira, Heira don't let it get to you
Because it happened before and will again and again

But don't you let it get you down because the air is drowning me too

Heira, Heira don't let it get to you

We're running, quickly, and I can't catch you
I call out your name

Heira, Heira

But don't you let it get you down because the air is drowning me too

Drowning me....
Happened before...
Drowning me too...
Will again...
Track Name: Snakes & Scorpions
v.1
The road lights swell and fade behind my lids x2
four bodies asleep bouncing on the vinyl mesh
The road lights swell and fade behind my lids

chorus
Then they carried us into the den
with the snakes and scorpions x2

v.2
enveloped behind a silky white weave x2
to protect us from the sting of some alien disease
enveloped behind a silky white weave

chorus
(repeat)

bridge
In the zoo of the pale white and new x4

chorus
(repeat)
Track Name: Diamond Blues
Little lamb sat quiet in the bathtub
shivers madly wild eyes on me
Filling up my senses
it ushers in the diamond blues
Oh if you haven't taken with you your heart

Think back to the time
when consequence was a playmate
and now your diamond blues
Yeah they cut so deep oh oh

Brother dearest walks into the midnight
wishing for the visitors to take him away
Sitting at the window
Crying through the diamond blues
Oh if you haven't taken with you your heart

Think back to the time
when consequence was a playmate
and now your diamond blues
Yeah they cut so deep oh oh

To tangle in a web made up of nonsense virtue
summoned by a strange and distant effervescence
You lost your love down a well
Have you had enough of those diamond blues

Fall creek shadows whisper lullabies now
twisting turning send me off to bed
Track Name: Lately
Lately I find myself back to the days when we first met
constantly squirming, silly, a tough tied mess
If only I could remember how far our friendship had come
the push and pull of the obligatory rules would be silent and still

La La La

Days, months, years have gone by and still I think you're swell
and I do know you well
Yet my anxious mind makes me feel inclined to question all the love that I find

La La La

Dear Clyde, I wanted a boyfriend so I thought I would write to you darling
There's no other boy around here that interests me as you Clyde darling
Call me up Clyde darling
When I saw you the other night over at pinks I thought I would go crazy because I love you so
From you girlfriend E.D.

La La La
Track Name: Love Song For Mabee Burlingham (Pieces Of The War Pt.1)
A.a
Mabee don't be so indifferent to me
we could stay right here
glueing up the pieces of the war
and when the flares go up we could go run
go run for cover
embarrassing though it may seem
it's better than the alternative

And diamonds are, my dear, they are here
buried in the dust
of the trenches that mark the enemies
territory
We'll set out on a covert operation
most likely to our death
and by the moonlight we will die
die in each others arms

A.b
And I said goodbye to we
tattered and tamed
there's no second chance
I'm sorry to say
and when the cannons rain
down on our parade
you know I'll miss you

A.a2
Mabee don't be so indifferent to me
we could stay right here
in each others arms forever
and as our shadows stretch
like ghostly fingers
grasping for the dark night
we'll let our love cautiously light upon
the fading fringes

A.b
(repeat x2)
Track Name: Lead Me On (Pieces Of The War Pt. 2)
These cautiously timed steps
through brutal love
are enough
to lead a man like me
to certain death
lead me on
I know now
there's no moral to the tale
I'll leave as I came
so helpless and frail
Lead me on x2
(repeat)

The pieces of the war
weigh heavy on us
