Track Name: Your Image
The window and the rain outside
Didn't free eternity to me,
Time is only floating free

On endless seas that cease need.
If I could wade through just one sky
Above the ocean behind your eyes

I would be content to wake and see
Your image lying next to me.
I would be content to wake and see
Your image lying next to me.
Track Name: Us to Sing
Sail into my arms
We'll sail into the sun
I don't care if I know you or not
I know that I love you
Teach us to sing

I'm going to follow poet right
To the bottom of the night
With your unconstraining voice
Teach us rejoicing
Teach us to sing

All my life I waited for you
Now you've dropped like a leaf from a tree
Into my path

I've been with Molly as she's run
With a fever in the sun
It turned her hair so red
Taught her rejoicing
Taught her to sing

All my life I've waited for you
Now you've dropped like a leaf from a tree
Into my path

I've been to the healing of the sky
As the morning clouds roll by
Day to day there is speech
There are no words
Teach us to sing

All my life I've waited for you
Now you've dropped like a leaf from a tree
Into my path
Track Name: Chapel Room w/ Rachael Perry
Heating our steps
Energize our eyes
Gardening to grow
Growing to die
To lie all warm
In the sun's cool eye
In the chapel room
Where we come to die
Where we come to lie
Where we come to shine
Like the candles on the alter
In the chapel room
Burning like the light in me
Like the light in the sun

Heating our steps
Energize our eyes
Gardening to grow
Growing to die
To lie all warm
In the sun's cool eye
In the chapel room
Where we come to die
Where we come to life
Where we come to shine
Like the candles on the alter
In the chapel room
Burning like the light in me
Like the light in the sun
Track Name: Chapel Room w/ feedback
Heating our steps
Energize our eyes
Gardening to grow
Growing to die
To lie all warm
In the sun's cool eye
In the chapel room
Where we come to die
Where we come to lie
Where we come to shine
Like the candles on the alter
In the chapel room
Burning like the light in me
Like the light in the sun

Heating our steps
Energize our eyes
Gardening to grow
Growing to die
To lie all warm
In the sun's cool eye
In the chapel room
Where we come to die
Where we come to life
Where we come to shine
Like the candles on the alter
In the chapel room
Burning like the light in me
Like the light in the sun
Track Name: Pablo Picasso w/ The Sun My Heart
Pablo Picasso making love to John Wayne
Jesus the prophet in the desert predicting rain
Deathbed confessions of a nun with gangrene
Spent her life in South America
Learning the tambourine

La la la
La la la
La la la
La is all you need

Pope Paul VII taking a cross to the sky
Flew til he found Mr. Jackson
Dressed for a suicide drive

La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La is all you need

Pinochet was a puppet
Mighty continental divide
Broke apart South America
On a long-distance drive

La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la

God bless America
She was she is Miss America
Named the child America
It's true - red white black and yellow

La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la

I am I and you are you
Once in a while we're through and through
I fit the battle of Jericho
With you, two by two (three)

La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La is all you need
Track Name: Wolf Jaguar
The wolf dreams the jaguar
The wolf dreams the jaguar he leaps
The wolf dreams the jaguar he leaps

He leaps and he captures my soul
He leaps and I capture my soul
I leap and I capture my soul

Louie Louie oh baby you know we gotta go now
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Louie Louie oh baby you know we gotta go now

Bobcat roams around seeking souls to devour
The devil roams around like a roaring lion
Seeking souls to devour he leaps
The bobcat roams seeking souls to devour
The devil roams around like a roaring lion
Seeking souls to devour he leaps

He leaps and he captures my soul
He leaps and I capture my soul
I leap and I capture my soul

Louie Louie oh baby you know we gotta go now
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Louie Louie oh baby you know we gotta go now
Track Name: Plant in Tears w/ Lana Maree Haas
Those who plant in tears
Will harvest with shouts of joy
Those who plant in tears
Will harvest with shouts of joy

They weep as the go to plant their seed
They sing as they return from harvest

Those who plant in tears
Will harvest with shouts of joy
