Track Name: Blind Girl
Could your daisy eyes lead us to paradise
Oh, blind girl?
Could you spare us the cynicism?
I'd make these people dance if only I had rhythm
Oh, I'd say

Everybody do the blind girl
Close your eyes and find the floor
Even though you're five foot nothing
Hell, you could even fit under the door
Everybody do the blind girl

From the synapse in your stamen
You wield the pistol that I alone cannot suppress
What do we do now, blind girl?
Don't know who to call now blind girl
Keep tapping your toes, I guess

She's got flowers in her eyes
She's got flowers in her eyes
So she can look pretty all the time

Everybody do the blind girl
Close your eyes and find the floor
You can find it, find it if you look
Even though you're five foot nothing
Hell, you could even fit under the door
Everybody do the blind girl

We've all been blind in our own ways
I've been looking for my eyes all damn day
Everybody do the blind girl
Track Name: Lost and Found
Roaming through this country side
No map for us a guide
Rushing down to the river's bed
No end in sight for us to wed

That's alright, yeah that's okay
We'll keep going anyway
Keeping our heads above the ground
we're more lost that found

Taking with us the clothes on our back
And some food in a sack
I turn to you and I know that you're mine
For at least some time on the road
Track Name: Tomes and Torches
When the train flattens the horizon
When my boat pisses off Poseidon
I'll bring the bow 'round the boat house
You'll have time to get your gun

When the jet lands below the bell tower
Heaven knows it's all about to go sour
Stained glass is flecking the grass now
Here's hoping your idols were all
Counterfeit anyway

From a distance the burning looks like a second sunrise
Sing this image to the blind girl for she may never know

That the vagabonds are running
They're tired it's been said
I myself am running too the poets want me dead
The miscreants are missing
They're running out of bread
I myself am missing too
The poets wants me dead
Track Name: Sonar [Live at the ROTA Gallery]
Would you remain if I
Could fix your disdain for the
Fourteenth time in the hour
I haven't even brought you flowers yet

I'll leave the drapery wide open
If you promise to come in with the sun

I'll be on a sound wave, darling
Might wanna crack those windows
A little noise from the sidewalk
Never hurt anyone
Track Name: Always and Never
If beauty sits the child's kiss
Of laughter I amend
Can you catch her if she runs?

With this I would share with you
All of this count to no end

Behind your sealed eyes you miss
All that I've done for you
Will you catch me when I run?

If timing play evident
What will you say when you're late?

Stay with me and fall asleep
Pray to God for no bad dreams

Stay with me and fall asleep
Pray to God for no bad dreams

Here... I'm still waiting here, my dear
For one kiss from you
So here... I'm still waiting here, my dear
To kill all of you
To kill all of you
