Track Name: I Am Your Forgiver
Should you need to stand against them
I am your enforcer
in your suffering
I am your reprieve
if you are confused
clarity - i am
in your lack of faith
Believe
I am your forgiver

Should you face your deepest of fears
courage - I am
In your forsaking
I am your search
If you ever need to lie
baby, I’m your alibi (oh yeah)
I know your sins
oh I know you've sinned
‘Cause I am your forgiver

Will you rise up
Will you reach out to embrace me
and believe
I find you a wonder fall
I find you a wonder fall
You are beautiful to be

Should you ever come to falter
I’m your inspiration
in your depravity
accomplice
should you ever take your revenge
I am your guilt
in your blood lust
in your blood lust

I am your forgiver
Track Name: Secret Garden
If we could share a glimpse
of how
to be
freed
from the past

If you could lift this heart
of mine
above
yourself
hold it fast

Lay down what should be forgotten
Take me in your secret garden
We will hold the sun above
bonded in eternal love

The days are cold and cruel
so worn
so tired
it seems
no dawn awaits

they may take from us our home
our work
but not
our love
can dissipate

Lay down what should be forgotten
Take me in your secret garden
We will hold the sun above
bonded in eternal love

Lay down what should be forgotten
Take me in your secret garden
Together we shall take our rest
Lay my kiss upon your breast

Love provides for those
who would
give grace
for the world
is a wondrous place

Love withstands the wounds
when life
attempts
to tear
apart
what we embrace

Lay down what should be forgotten
Take me in your secret garden
We will hold the sun above
bonded in eternal love

Lay down what should be forgotten
Take me in your secret garden
Together we shall take our rest
Lay my kiss upon your breast
Track Name: The Drowning Man - Radio Edit
The Drowning Man

There goes another love
I’ve lost another one
I had to go and open my big mouth
why cant I just keep it shut?

chorus:
what am i gonna say
to keep you from walking away (4x)

I am a drowning man
I am a whining man
I am a sleepy man
I better wake up! wake up! wake up! wake up!

I am a selfish man
I am a wasteful man
I am a silly man
I better wake up! wake up! wake up! wake up!


is this really all there is?
I was thinking there’d be more
this couldn’t be all my share
why won't you show me yours?

chorus:

I locked my keys in the car
now i cant get into my house
life is goes so much easier for you
I’ll never figure it out.
Track Name: Wait Until
NOTHING TO DO BUT WAIT
WAIT UNTIL
I KNOW YOU’LL COME
‘CAUSE YOU SAID SO
‘CAUSE YOU SAID YOU WILL

COMING TO PICK ME UP
YOU’LL TAKE ME OUT OF HERE
YOU’LL TAKE ME FAR AWAY
SO FAR AWAY
TO ANYWHERE

I’M NEEDING YOU

LATER YOU WROTE ME BACK
WROTE ME BACK
AFTER FIVE LONG YEARS OF
WAITING
WAIT UNTIL

(YOU WROTE)
GLAD YOU'RE DOING WELL
GLAD YOU'RE DOING WELL OUT THERE IN LA
BUT WHY
DO YOU
WAIT UNTIL?

I’M NEEDING YOU

(YOU WROTE)
PLEASE PLEASE
DON'T WRITE ME ANYMORE
DON'T WAIT UNTIL
DON'T WAIT UNTIL

PLEASE PLEASE
DON'T WRITE ME ANYMORE
EVEN THOUGH I SAID I WILL
DON'T WAIT UNTIL

I’M NEEDING YOU
Track Name: My Cat Walter
So
Do you really think she knows?
Is she dancing at the club tonight?
Man I’m so psyched we’re gonna go
Me and My cat Walter

Oh Oh Oh
The DJ’s dealing old skool blow
its like an 80’s flashback disco
Man I’m so pumped
just did a bump
with My Cat Walter

High up in the tree
We’ll be so
watchful of the moon
and share a
life beautiful
with my cat Walter

Please
This Beat is really kinda sleaze
Got to find me some air to breathe
it's time to leave. Where can he be?
Where is My Cat Walter


Oh My God
She’s left in someone else’s car
never even said goodbye to us
that was so unkind to leave behind
Me and my cat Walter
Track Name: We're Dancing (On Fractured Glass)
Come
We will tango the moon-light
far from the grasp of the spent light

come dance in my arms
where we can pretend
all that we could want
will be ours someday
we find us someplace after all

We’re dancing on fractured glass
We’re dancing on fractured glass
High above the mezzanine
see the crowd below

sweet
with the taste of an anisette
Love
drips the perfume of an opiate

come dance in my arms
where we can pretend
all that we could want
will be ours someday
we find us someplace after all

We’re dancing on fractured glass
We’re dancing on fractured glass
High above the mezzanine
see the crowd below

We’re dancing on fractured glass
We’re dancing on fractured glass
Watch as we take a breath
and then let go

tonight
we could falter the moment
brace
the eternal romance

We’re dancing on fractured glass
We’re dancing on fractured glass
High above the mezzanine
see the crowd below

We’re dancing on fractured glass
We’re dancing on fractured glass
Watch as we take a breath
and then let go
Track Name: Someone's Always Looking
In the summer
Clothes get tossed
naked swimming
really cools me off
oh, how I’d love to live like this
but someone is always looking

when I’m drunk walking
I have to pee
the neighbors bushes seem fair game to me
oh, how I’d love to live like this
but someone is always looking

Someone’s always looking
looking after me
cause I would be lost out here alone
it’s dangerous on my own

thank god that someone’s looking
looking after me
make sure I’m gonna be alright
I’ll stay safe tonight
safe tonight

so much to do
I’ll never start
I’ll waste a day
lying on my couch
oh, how I’d love to live like this
but someone is always looking

why walk the dog
or feed my cat
or mow the lawn or anything like that
oh, how I’d love to live like this
but someone is always looking

Someone’s always looking
looking after me
cause I would be lost out here alone
it’s dangerous on my own

Someone’s always looking
looking after me
make sure I’m gonna be alright
I’ll stay safe tonight
that someone is you

Track Name: Bittersweet
THIS GIRL HAS GOT HER SECRET WAYS
THERE NO TELLING WHAT SIDE SHE IS ON
GIVEN FAIR WARNING SHE’LL DISOBEY
ALL AT ONCE SHE’S YOURS AND THEN WITHDRAWN

AH
HE’S SOMETHING
HES SOMETHING NEW
OH
STAYS WITHIN REACH WHILE SLIPPING THROUGH

HE HAS COMMAND OF UNSEEN FORCES
HE TAKES THE INSIDE OF THE ANGLE

I TASTE THE DANGER OF HIS KISSES
THEY'RE BITTER SWEET
HE AIMS FOR TROUBLE NEVER MISSES
CAUSE HE’S A CHEAT

A DIABOLIC MASQUERADER
TOO MANY STORIES TO UNTANGLE

I TASTE THE DANGER OF HIS KISSES
THEY'RE BITTER SWEET
HE AIMS FOR TROUBLE NEVER MISSES
CAUSE HE’S A CHEAT

AH
HE’S SOMETHING
HES SOMETHING NEW
OH
STAYS WITHIN REACH WHILE SLIPPING THROUGH

HE OPERATES WITHOUT A CONSCIENCE
HE TAKES HIS PLEASURE IN INDULGENCE

I TASTE THE DANGER OF HIS KISSES
THEY'RE BITTER SWEET
HE AIMS FOR TROUBLE NEVER MISSES
CAUSE HE’S A CHEAT

Track Name: An American Story Of Job
An American Story Of Job (The Election Of 2012)

They closed the factory
in my town
no more work to be done
they locked the gates
they nailed shut the door
the years of blood and sweat no more

heaven hear us
heaven hear us

tell us what a good man is
because we try real hard
all we got left is less than a start

my friends lost their home today
in my town
no more bed to lay down upon
their children now asleep in the car

solo section
And Job cried out:
Heaven hear us now

heaven hear us
heaven hear us
tell us what a good man is
because we try real hard
tell us what a good man is
because we try real hard
all we got left is less than a start
