Track Name: the other side
oh you
blue is only a joke
all you want to do is drink and smoke
can't rationalize feeling
can't de-possess obsession
you said you learned your lesson
the last time
but here am i
on the other side

while you cry
you sob, you struggle
and confide
and if i could i would
reach deep inside
i'd pull it all out
soak up the tide
of tears
but i'm just here
on the other side

with my broad love
i am made of god love
rising high above you
i will be the ground
until you come around
love

oh you
it's so hard to watch you suffer
you know you are my favorite mirror
you reflect me
and i love what i see
a bigger better brighter me

and i
will be waiting by
on the other side
Track Name: song of encouragement
get along
get over it
hang on
be strong
you can't know
til you discover it
alright
let go

constant panic
never ending
when will i ever
not be spending
all my time
all my energy
pulling us up
pulling us up
pulling us up

i got to
get along
i gotta
get over it
gonna hang on
gonna be wrong
i can know
i can discover it
alright
let go

i have nothing
except for myself
i have nothing
except for myself
myself
myself
myself

letting go
of your devotion
to riding
on a turbulent ocean
when you should
riding
you should be riding a shining sea
yeah
you should be riding a shining sea
alright
i'm gonna get along
i'm gonna get over
gonna hang on
gonna be wrong
i can know
i can discover it
alright
let go
Track Name: fishes
the Goddess loves us little fishes
as we go streeling through the night
if i say all of my wishes out loud
will they come true?
oh i think i deserve it
just want to be alright

i didn't mean to fall so hard, it's true
i didn't mean to go this far
but now the night is a blanket
and you're the brightest star in it
and it's all coming on in me
like a storm

and oh me
oh me
uncontrollable me
it's a steep incline
the way to the truth
when i'm sliding down
on what i found with you

gimme the silver spur
gimme two more for the road
then we'll wander on
under the star of Aphrodite-O
cuz i'm well on, i'm undone
i'm overblown
half hung, livin underground
full grown

and oh me
oh me
uncontrollable me
it's a steep incline
the way to the truth
when i'm sliding down
on what i found with you

the Goddess loves us little fishes
cuz we're vicious
Track Name: evennow
even now
riding along ten years after
i can't believe
that i'm still laughing as long and as hard
only deeper

and i'll be there
when it's time to go and play
and of course you will be late

even now
riding away ten times higher
i can't be sure
that i'm not the biggest asshole in the world
you let me know

and i'll be there
and of course you will be late
after the fight it's all okay

cuz fire and water make steam

even now
riding along ten years after
i can't believe
that i'm still laughing as long and as hard
only deeper
Track Name: unknown
when it comes over me
i can't think
when it comes over me
i can't drink
i linger on the edges
hoping she'll appear
i can't hold any thoughts
i feel only desire

it's like i'm on fire
on my inside
i'm on fire
i'm on fire

it's eating me
like i would feed on
summer's golden plenty
i'm rutting, i'm butting
i'm coming up empty
languishing in the reeds
gathering seeds

and i'm on fire
on my inside
i'm on fire
i'm on fire

i'm alone
i'm just one
and if she don't come
i'm unknown
i'm unknown
i'm unknown
i'm unknown
Track Name: denial
oh denial
you wear so many faces
they're all moving past me
they don't understand me
denial, i'm in denial
i can't give a thing
can't you see i'm made of pain
and i'm ruthless
the way i cling to you
the way i won't let go
of all those things
you'll never know
you'll never know
what i do

oh denial
you make me watch her worry
the way she hides her fury
when i'm always in a hurry
denial, i'm in denial
i can't give a thing
can't you see i'm made of pain

and i'm ruthless
the way i cling to you
the way i won't let go
of all those things
you'll never know
you'll never know
what i do
Track Name: nobody's friend
can he see you standing there
all in leather and in skin
intention sparkles in your hair
and every move you make for him
how many times will it take to prove
how many songs is he gonna send
all of the skill that you have to use
to become a rock star's girlfriend

and i'm so glad i'm not like you
i try too hard to deny
but i have to say it when i see it
the way out is not always a lie

you wake up in some man's bed
hung over in the afternoon
wondering if the kids got fed
before they made it off to school
great big thoughts for little minds
turn it til you can defend
all the ways they learn to lie
the ways of nobody's friend

and i'm go glad i'm not like you
i've tried too hard to deny
but i have to say it when i see it
the way out is not always a lie

deadbeat dad at the end of the bar
beat dead feelings til they get hard
and now you're happy hanging off the arm
of a lying cop calling coward
well you try so hard and you feel too strong
there's company at every dead end
they'll be there to hear you sing that song
when you're the unhappy ex-girlfriend

and i'm go glad i'm not like you
i've tried too hard to deny
but i have to say it when i see it
the way out is not always a lie

it's not always a lie
Track Name: good goodbye
i'm tired of this
one horse town
i want more than
i gotta get out of here
out of here

i will do without doing
i won't even try
i will arrive
and all you can do
is marvel at the beauty of
my perfect life

this is a voice
made for singing
this is no choice
to be up here
bringing it all to you
to you
it all

i do without doing
and you are looking at the real thing
and all you can do
is marvel at the beauty of
my real thing

and i
i won't even cry
when i am waving goodbye
to you
because every day
you get farther away
every day
you get farther away

so it's a good goodbye
a good goodbye
Track Name: destination destiny
ignition, power up
pull the strap across my chest and up
so far above her down below us
while a billion stars burst
clean and bright
widening our eyes
as we rise
into the universe

and it's hard to leave
to leave her hanging on
in certain doom
but we pioneer
we aspire ever upwards
on and on we climb

intention, listen up
lay your head upon my breast
oh i love you
dearer than the dearest thing
upon the earth
we belong to the universe
we belong
to the universe

destination destiny
leave a weary world to rest
and we'll sleep
hear the song inside our heads
to keep us
safe, suspended
through the night
it's a long ride
and we abide
in the universe

we abide
Track Name: devotion
so long and far away
you're calling me
i'm waiting for the day
when i can see
all the reasons why i do

it's a heavy kind of day
snowing you under
and in a lazy kind of way
well, it's a comfort
all the reasons why you won't
all the reasons why you won't

and true is just a word we use
we all gotta live by what we choose

and you can go there
you are descending
i will be waiting where
the air is clear
in a space that is safe for two
i adore
and i believe
this is a sacred thing
and i can read
i can read your mind
we are the same
we are the same kind

and i got you
in my zoom
you animate
the room
you make those faces bloom
watch all those faces bloom

and hey, hey you make me
i am coming through
and i know you
can see me
the way that i see you
cuz i do, i do, i do
i do
i really do see you
so come on
come on
bring it on
come on
bring it on
devotion
