Track Name: Baby Bird
You're taking things all wrong.
Christian boy, settle down.
I know you don't mean to hurt anyone.

Baby bird, why you crying?
Baby bird, why you crying?
I swear someday you'll learn how to fly.

Put it on me, not on them.
Wouldn't you rather say it to a friend?
I need you more then all of them.

Mama bird, why you resting?
Mama bird, why you resting?
You have to teach your son how to live.
Track Name: You Put it on Yourself
Rewind, rewind. Let your conscience capture your mind
because you know it all belongs to you.
And you know that it's up to you.
And you know you put it on yourself,
you put it on yourself, but we all fall down.

Sitting alone, wondering wishing and dreaming of
loving someone who can look up to you.
But you know that it's unrealistic.
And you know you put it on yourself,
you put it on yourself, but we all fall down.

With enough straws, break the camel's back you will fall
ask anyone who's had more time than you.
'Cause you know you can't escape the truth.
And you know you put it on yourself,
you put it on yourself, but we all fall down.
Track Name: Take it Back
You think you're the only one who's ever said you love me so.
But I've got news for you, others said it, had to go.
I've got a feeling something strange came over you tonight.
Take it back. Take it back, out of mind and out of sight.

I know it brings some people joy I've always had reverse effects.
Some may feel the passion when I feel the burn of firey red.
Believe me when I say the word "love" scares me half to death.
Take it back. Take it back, so that I can catch my breath.

Leave me alone for just a little while.
I'll step up to the plate and face my fear.
Don't say you love me just to make me smile.
You know it's not what I want to hear.

You think you're the only one who's ever said you love me so.
But I've got news for you, others said it, had to go.
Believe me when I say the word "love" scares me half to death.
Take it back. Take it back, so that I can catch my breath.
Track Name: Ancient Lover
I knew you'd finally come around back to me chickadee.
Sure enough you're wearing white like my dream told me.
Like you did when you were young you've run on out of time.
Ancient lover, what makes you think you'll be mine?

Admittingly there was a time where I was aching for your love.
But every time another man would steal away my turtle dove.
And that's the last time I'd ever let myself finish in second place.

Here you are with dirty knees begging for me.
You haven't had a chance my dear since you threw it all away.
And it will always be that way until you see a tunnel glowing white.
Ancient lover, never again you'll be mine.

I'd have to say the table's nicer from this side.
How's it feel to swim in the remains of where I cried?
Now I'm sitting on your thrown of empowerment and it feels great.

Excuse me miss but I've got a full day ahead of me.
So et me ask you kindly to get out of my way.
And it will always be that way until you see a tunnel glowing white.
Ancient lover, what makes you think you'll be, never again you'll be, you had your chance to be mine.
Track Name: Footprints
There were days you said
That you could tell my heart was all filled up with lead.
My feet would drag upon the ground, wouldn't lift my head.
Don't know how you knew but it's what you said.

And in that stretch of time
I probably talked to myself more than anyone.
I'm always there to listen, never on the run.
Though it passed the time it wasn't fun.

My heart was left beating in a footprint on the floor.
The footprint from a sole my lover wore.
Now it's right where it belongs.
Awful safely nestled in your arms.
Awful safely nestled in your arms.

As my hair grew long.
You didn't brag that you were right and I was wrong.
Just sat there right beside me as I wrote this song.
This is what I needed all along.

And in the times to come.
I'll pick it up and dust it off then move along.
Not worth the years that bring you tears just having fun.
This is what I needed all along.

My heart was left beating in a footprint on the floor.
The footprint from a sole my lover wore.
Now it's right where it belongs.
Awful safely nestled in your arms.
Awful safely nestled in your arms.

My heart was left beating in a footprint on the floor.
The footprint from a soul my lover wore.
Now it's right where it belongs.
Awful safely nestled in your arms.
Awful safely nestled in your arms.
Track Name: L'onesto
You steal this from me,
and I'll steal that from him.
But you've got to let him steal from you
'cause if you don't that's where you go wrong.
That's where you go wrong.

And I'll share this with you,
and he'll share that with me.
But you've got to share with him 'cause if you don't
well then, that's where you go wrong.
That's where you go wrong.

Just imagine
a world where no one ever steals a thing.
Well just imagine
a free-for-all community.
Well just imagine.

You'll hide this from him
and he'll hide that from me.
And I'll hide everything from everyone
'cause that's my only sense of free.

And you'll lock this from him,
and he'll lock that from me.
And when you needed it the most
my things are locked and I've the only key.

And I'd remember
that you're the one who started locking things.
Forced to surrender
you're begging on your knees.

"I'm an honest man,
just trying to get on by
I never knew my honest acts
would have effects on so many lives.

"Steal" and "share" I know
should mean the same thing.
Why should some starve and suffer
while another's, living like a king?"

And to forgive you
for all the harm that you have done.
Yes to forgive you
I don't know if I'm that strong.

So you steal this from me,
and I'll steal that from him.
But you've gotta let him steal from you
'cause if you don't I don't know if I'm that strong.
I don't know if I'm that strong.

And I'll share this with you,
and he'll share that with me.
But you've gotta share with him 'cause if you don't
well then, I don't know if I'm that strong.
I don't know if I'm that strong.

Just imagine
a world where no one ever steals a thing.
Well just imagine
a free-for-all community.

I don't know if I'm that strong.
Track Name: Sunshine
Just yesterday someone called me
by the name you used to use, and I lost self control.
'Cause it's been raining behind these six metal strings
since you left me long ago.

Just yesterday someone called me "sunshine"
you could see the vacant memories in my eyes.
They started raining, oh, can't you see
that the name "sunshine" is make believe.
Track Name: Swallow Your Pride
Another big sigh followed by rolled eyes.
How I know your kind. Do you think I'm blind?
You take me by surprise,
all your memories, instability all collide.

You know damn well,
swallow your pride.

I may look nice on the outside,
but get under my skin and you'll enter a world of disaster.
You may be slightly larger,
but I'm stronger, and meaner, and smarter, and clever, and faster.

And for all the times that you harmed me:
physically, mentally, purposely, softly and harshly.
I'm gonna make sure that you don't forget me.

You know damn well
swallow your pride.

You're taking me for granted.
For all that I offer to you I can offer the planet.
I'd hate to see you go.
With your tail tucked between your legs little bitch I'm sold.

And for all the times that you harmed me:
physically, mentally, purposely, softly and harshly.
I'm gonna make sure that you don't forget me.
Track Name: The Golden Voice
Love is just a word that makes people smile,
Eliminates the chance of a lonley life.
"Love is all you need" said the golden voice.
But words don't always satisfy your apetite.

No---

Love is just a word that makes people cry,
Eliminates a dream that's worth dying for.
You'll rest it on a silver tray and hope for good.
When nine times out of ten you were misunderstood.

No---

Love is just a stepping stone to cross a creek,
They'll say its how they feel but never what they mean.
Fragile as a glass you shattered everywhere.
Put yourself together labeled "handle with care."

No---

"Love is all you need" said the golden voice
"Love is all you need" said the golden voice

No---
Track Name: Get Well Soon
Get well soon. You've got to get well soon.
Back to the way you were when you light up the room.
Get well soon. You've got to get well soon.
I can't live another day being away.

I miss you sent with a smile.
Ignore it I'll get back in a while.
'Cause there are better ways to satisfy a man.
To be honest it is hard to understand.

Get well soon. You've got to get well soon.
Back to the way you were when you made the flowers bloom.
Get well soon. You've got to get well soon.
I can't live another day being this way.

"I love you" isn't enough.
But I can feel it boiling up.
And when you turn your head I'll run the other way.
Because there is so much power in what you say.

Get well soon. you've got to get well soon.
Back to dreams where you were my bride and I was your groom.
Get well soon. You've got to get well soon.
I can't live another day dreaming away.

I hate you just for today,
and that's why I'm pulling away.
'Cause when the light comes up you'll see another man.
To be honest it is hard to understand.

Get well soon. You've got to get well soon.
Back to the way you were when you light up the room.
Get well soon. You've got to get well soon.
I can't live another day being away.
