Track Name: Without the Light
Row so ever slowly
Looks like you don't know me
Feel reeds deep expansion
Sharp eyes in a trance

If there's a fight for what you want
If there's a fight for who you are
You free the viper from it's cage
You put the blindfold on to let in the light now

Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.
Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.

Run out of defenses
Judge is so relentless
Hide your achilles helmet
Shaking lips so much to tell

They'll try to kick you back in time
They'll try to kick you to the back of the line
You put the judges in their cribs
You put the blindfold on to let in the light now

Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.
Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.

Can't find what you came for. Let it go.
Don't know what you wait for. Let it go.

Go baby let go baby
Take it slow
You know. you know.
The shadows growing
The wick's the trick
Just snuff it out
You put the blindfold on to let in the light now

Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.
Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.

Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.
Why you scared without the light?
Imagination will give you sight.
Track Name: Smoke and Mirrors
Ahhhh Love this high
No one's looking around, the time is right
Ahhhh we're here all night
Let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight



You take the front door
Who could you fall for?

Get on the dance floor
I wanna see more

You gotta sweat now
Like you don't know how


Just let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight


You want my body then you better bring it here now
It's apropos to move in to my space now
Don't leave me hanging
If you know I wanna get down
Just make your move
and you'll know what I'm a talking bout


Ahhhh Love this high
No one's looking around, the time is right
Ahhhh we're here all night
Let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight


Need to express my infatuation
The crowd around a small limitation
I'll use my moves for communication

Just let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight

I know you're tricky and I know you got an ego
I also know what you do to my libido
I'm no psychic but you look like you're a scorpio
You turned this place into sexy kind of rodeo

Just let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight

Cutting through the smoke

Don't play the tough guy with a swagger and a switchblade
I want to see the lover boy behind masquerade
Play with conviction cuz you lose me when you hesitate
I won't reject you cuz you're dancing like a renegade

Just let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight

Ahhhh Love this high
No one's looking around the time is right

Ahhhh We're here all night
Let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight
Ahhhh Love this high
No one's looking around the time is right

Ahhhh We're here all night
Let the smoke and mirrors hold you tight
Track Name: Kissing Booth
Love that face. Crush in that deep place.
Play it cool. Or cry when I see you.
Breaks my pride, you walk right past me.
You move to fast to make it last - hey hey hey

Too shy to say what you're thinking
Too proud to make the next move
Too many ladies to choose from
What have I got to prove?

Don't play the overachiever
Don't fake your chivalry
I know you're uncouthed
So meet me in the kissing booth

Well I'll toe the line
I'll be so patient
But I need a sign
A code in your cadence

Need a taste
If you keep me waiting
Come on so strong
But then you're gone- hey, hey, hey!


Too shy to say what you're thinking
Too proud to make the next move
Too many ladies to choose from
What have I got to prove?

Don't play the overachiever
Don't fake your chivalry
I know you're uncouthed
So meet me in the kissing booth


If you're there, let me try and see you
Taste is sharp, like a lusty lick
Know why I thought you would be the one who
Play mean with the cheapest tricks.


But I just got away
woohooo



Too shy to say what you're thinking
Too proud to make the next move
Too many ladies to choose from
What have I got to prove?

Don't play the overachiever
Don't fake your chivalry
I know you're uncouthed
So meet me in the kissing booth
Track Name: Shocked in Kathmandu
Ooooo I wanna come too
I wanna get lost in there with with you

I wanna come true
Is that taboo?
so why you shocked in Kathmandu?

I wanna feel good
I wanna come true
I wanna get stuck in there with you.

I wanna come true
Is that taboo?
so why you shocked in Kathmandu?


I'm of a mind
to self supply
My heart comes a calling
can't deny

They're giving you structure
giving you rules
giving you religion
and other tools

I'm of a mind
when it comes to love
to listen to your body so you
don't dry up

Make your own structure
make your own rules
make your own religion
and other tools


Ooooo I wanna come too
I wanna get lost in there with with you

I wanna come true
Is that taboo?
so why you shocked in Kathmandu?

I wanna feel good
I wanna come true
I wanna get stuck in there with you.

I wanna come true
Is that taboo?
so why you shocked in Kathmandu?


Crazy way to be
so congnicent of me
I lose my vanity
in this monastery

I followed you to pray
in every kind of way
We discovered in Nepal
yes, we can have it all!


Ooooo I wanna come too
I wanna get lost in there with with you

I wanna come true
Is that taboo?
so why you shocked in Kathmandu?

I wanna feel good
I wanna come true
I wanna get stuck in there with you.

I wanna come true
Is that taboo?
so why you shocked in Kathmandu?
Track Name: You'd Better Walk
She's a party and it ain't no lie
trying hard to keep her satisfied
Playin hard to make the time go by.
Knives are flyin if tap runs dry

You better walk. You better walk.
You see she's too shy to cry, but she's dealing with the labor of love.
The boys are falling in line, the competition's looking pretty rough.


He's flirty, not too overdone.
he'd never make a fool of anyone.
Big daddy told his favorite son.
You want a girl, you better walk not run.

You better walk. You better walk.
If you move in too fast, boy, you're never gonna get past go.
But you can see in her eyes, an invitation to come say hello.
And if they're giving you slack, you feel the pressure to put on a show.
If you stay on track, you'll be bringing the deal to a close.


She's a party if she let's you in.
her heart is locked behind a kitty grin
but take it slow if you can stand the wait
she'll hand it to you on a silver plate

You better walk. You better walk.
You know you're taking a test, they do their best to mimic the part.
You know they haven't a prayer, cuz they've been moving to fast from the start.
if you want her bad enough, you gotta toughen up and take it slow.
Cuz if you stay on track, you'll be bringing the deal to a close.
Yes, if you stay on track, you'll be bringing the deal to a close.
Track Name: Fly
Need to fly, I don't know how to keep my feet on the ground.
Try to walk but float so high- must need to be in the sky.

Look at her face, she's falling hard
He's giving her lace, she thinks he's God
He's over his head now, felt so good
She's waiting in bed, like a good girl would

See a policeman and a gipsy as they drink and they play
The politician and his wife, before they look the other way
Can't see it if I'm in it and my head begins to spin.
The preacher's in the corner, wonder where the hell he's been?

Need to fly, I don't know how to keep my feet on the ground.
Try to walk but float so high- must need to be in the sky.

Wait in line, but you move to the side
Step on a mine, wounds your pride
He's got your back now, he's just a kid
They're talking smack about the things he did.

If you speak up and defend him, make them glad he's around.
You better put the words to music and your weapons to the ground.
They're bitter from their travels, but they stop and shake hands
They toss the map aside and wait to hear your better plans.

Need to fly, I don't know how to keep my feet on the ground.
Try to walk but float so high- must need to be in the sky.
Track Name: She Become Me
How did she become me?
Oh how is she in me?

And we were both part renegade
And we had duties, roles to play
And we were charged with thoughts of being together
And then we’d run away.

I said who’s the voyeur now?
You try to find me in a crowd
You know you can’t beat love into my heart
with both hands on the ground.

We’re made to love
In a fable and in truth
And I prayed for it about every day
in the belly of my youth.

And I want to be aroused
And I wanna go meditate
So I can learn from a lush, green orchard
where we harvest our mistakes.

And I remain stoic.
And I’m secluded in a crowd.
And I penetrate adversity
in a soft magnetic cloud.

And I dove before the king.
And I saw you in that dream
In a perpetual state of chrysalis
with ego spotted wings.

How did she become me?
How did she become me?
How did she become me?
oh how is she in me?

Ram Ram

And I sat up on the floor
I had achieved a certain quality
I couldn’t have conceived of
as a sonic embryo

We’re reminded of our truth
and I fighted for it to
And it was then when I chose to pay admission
that I fell for Atlas too.

We were every kind of sword
We were every set of canes
And we would dine inside the candlelight
Two elusive prism mates.

We were flowered by the mood
We were salted by our wounds
We were foes who chose to embrace each other
in the nectar of the moon.

We were made for love before
We’ll be made for love again
And we’ll arrive inside the candlelight
with the cadence of a king

We are guarded by our rules
We’re exhalted by our wounds
And we sip the elixir of devotion
while our hearts are joining you.

How did she become me?
How did she become me?
How did she become me?
oh how is she in me?
Track Name: I'm Home Now
And you awake the next day
And your hands are full of cracks
You had the most fantastic dream
You try to find your way back.

You see the voyeur in the box
It’s the arousal of your thoughts
And you tuck into a ball
And you try to laugh it off.

And we were told before we came
This being human thing was hard
That we’d grovel in the sand
While reaching for the stars.

And we stood among the trees
Hear the laughter in the leaves
It’s the love that you’ve been waiting for
The love that you’ve been waiting for.

Stuck in the mud, inside a hole.
Try to rise above.
I’m home now.

The right kind of love can make you whole.
What you’re dreaming of.
I’m home now.


And you awake the next day
Tangled up in sheets again
And you think you smell her breath
And you think you feel her skin

And there’s a dragon in the box
With a mouthful of bloody bones
And you want to run away
But you’re scared to be alone.

And we were told before we came
That this living thing was hard.
That we’d be spun inside a classroom
That we call the human heart.

That we’d be weighted to the ground
By the need for a deep embrace.
It’s the only perfect comfort you can find in all of time and space.

Stuck in the mud, inside a hole.
Try to rise above.
I’m home now.

The right kind of love can make you whole.
What you’re dreaming of.
I’m home now.
Track Name: One Breath Away
And you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.
You know you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.
The sensation you feel, the ludus, the play of love.
And you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.


And you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.
You know you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.
The sensation you feel, the eros, the fire of love.
The transmission begins. You surrender. You open up.


And you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.
You know you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.
The sensation you feel, the agape, the flow of love.
You know you’re one breath away from the life you’ve been dreaming of.
Track Name: Cupid's Sting
If you crave passion the Cupid’s a saint
You’ll embrace the arrow without restraint
It sting will soothe you like a warm bath
Relax your ego and make you laugh

Suddenly you’re being kissed by someone
you forgot but missed.
Venus marks you with her ring
You’ve become a love machine.


If you fear desire, the Cupid’s a curse
Your skin will catch fire and your heart will burst.
Then you’ll find a phoenix inside
With a lust for life
and no need to hide

The arrow’s sting is a blessed thing
Your spirit rises and your body is cleaned
Your transformation is soon complete
You’ve become a love machine.
Track Name: She's Alive
Created for a monster
she was frightened of.
And she was given such a big heart.
She was designed to love.
She's getting use to her emotions.
They're making such a fuss.
There's only one man who will love her
no matter what she does.


She's alive.
I saw her take her stitches out. Who could blame her.
She wants to turn her life around.

Ooooo She’s Alive
All she did was laugh and she survived.


I didn't know she was a dancer.
I didn't think she prayed.
if only they had tried to know her
they would be less afraid.

She had a senseless devotion
to her master mind.
And she’d follow him anywhere
no matter what his crime.

She's in love. I saw her give him kisses now.
Such allegiance. As much as lonely hearts allow.

Oooo She's in love.
Nothin there could stop her, she’s in love.



She's alive.
I saw her take her stitches out. Who could blame her.
She wants to turn her life around.


Ooooo She’s Alive
All she did was laugh and she survived.

Oooo She's in love.
Nothin there could stop her, she’s in love.

Ooooo She’s Alive
All she did was laugh and she survived.
