Track Name: Kneel and Pray
Yesterday I didn’t feel near
to my fears, now I kneel and pray

Sure that it came out of the fire
molten wires call short-circuit friends

Yeah you want me to spell your name
until you came, is it much too real?

Yeah you want me to spell your mind
all of the time, is it much to feel?

Visited New York
you may’ve even been to Thailand
seen the most amazing islands
in the sun
Still you feel alone
and you’re looking for some cleansing
to become the honest man
you never was

Yesterday I didn’t feel strange
come what may, tomorrow’s another day

Yesterday I didn’t feel near
to my fears, I just wanna kiss yr face

Elli’s in a cure
she’s got pills against tomorrow
and if pain against her sorrows
and next week
Still she calls her mom
to ask her if it’s alright
if it’s OK to spend the night
here with me
Track Name: My Only Truth
I take love as my only truth
the rest is fiction
No matter what you say or do
cause I won’t listen

I take love as my only truth
there’s nothing else I wanna do
I don’t need to write a book
cause those letters cannot prove

that love is my only truth
the rest is fiction
I zap the channels on the tube
lame repetition

What do they try to say?
Do they think they’re doing OK?
I’m crawling up in bed
and I make love to you instead

Wake up to find the sun
not bound to anyone
No reason to draw the line
cause when you got real love
you know you’re doing fine

You’re doing alright
No need to fight now
All is fine
Track Name: Mary Jane
I don’t figure in this world
but Mary Jane with you my life is clearer

I don’t know what I’m gonna be
first I’ll have to see this fuss come nearer

When I’m alone with you
you know you shine just like a diamond
and I am shining too

The day I came across to you
I’ve opened up my mind
I never really understood why
people spill their time to see
things that have already been
everybody wants to kneel
and everybody wants to feel

Sweet Mary Jane you are my love
sending my prayers up above
Track Name: Come my Way
The closer I get
the further away I feel
What do I need to learn
to love for real?

When nothing seems to be exciting
I need your presence to ignite me

So come my way
without you I can’t let it roll
and I think of you
it’s the only thing
that brings a difference to me

I’m standing alone
under a tree
I cry at the blossoms
that are waking me

The closer I get
the further away I feel
What do I need to learn
to love for real?

Nothing man you live forever
we’re sticking into this together

So come my way
without you there’s no need to show
that I think of you
without you I can’t let it grow
Yeah I dream of you

She said why don’t you say you love me
cause that would make me so proud of you

So come my way
I notice that you think of me
and I dream of you
it’s the only thing
that brings a difference to me
Track Name: Anyone
Don’t think that anyone
understands you
it’s hard to be in love
But I’m glad to

If you think lonely hearts
should never be apart
then I do wonder where you are

don’t think that anyone
understands you
if you say “love is all
I live up to”

They’ll give you puzzled eyes
and think you’re in disguise
they take your name
right off of their list

that’s what they’ll do
they did it to me babe
and they do it to you
Track Name: Autumn Flower
Autumn flower
you can make the seasons change
you learn too, too much to remember

Looking up to should become looking at
No one is better than you are,
my lovely autumn flower

I love you
Track Name: Button I've Lost
Still looking for that button I’ve lost
on an LSD trip in the countryside
years ago

It fell off my coat as we walked
and we wished us a dream
and the dream would drop real below

You whispered that you were afraid of cars
I understood when we sat near the marsh
and radio stood up from the grass
to tell us birds could sing the past

And now you stand inside the world
you found your life and girl so easily

still looking for that button I’ve lost
Track Name: Continually, for Eternity
Living in a poem
is what I want to be now
just tell me it’s allowed

dreaming all my life away
without making a point
other that dreaming on

Sail upon the electronic sea
leave it all shapelessly
there is nothing here to fish for
I know that you and me are standing tall

I think you might understand
that everybody’s free
to claim reality

You get born, you live and die
continually
for eternity

Staring at the shadows of a tree
I wish you’d see what I could see
you can always cry tomorrow
I know that you and me are standing tall
Track Name: Electronic Days
Eventually man will disappear
into cyberspace
continuing his soul in there
Earth will be erased
just like a million years ago
it happened just the same
what you see is electric;
a pimped up cyberspace
an electronic place
with electric dreams
and electronic

electronic days

Every act or happening
has no start or end
that’s why they say God is gay
that’s why Buddha laughs
but the electron has eaten God
very long ago
imagine what it means to us
a pimped up cyberspace
an electronic place
with electric dreams
and electronic

electronic days

The pale rays of the October sun
spread behind the woods*
if I could I would wake you up
