Track Name: We are the Harvest of the Earth
beneath the stars you’ll see the end
we’ll never see the sun again
but if you live until you die
you will have left this place alive

are you saddened?

this song we sing is for the past
to all things that would not last
kings of our age, we ruled the earth
but like all things we fed the curse

are you happy now?
at the turning of the times
what you see now
may already be gone
what you speak now
must have always been true
what you dream now may already be gone

we are the harvest of the earth
though many pray for rebirth
but if you live until you die
you will have left this place alive
yes if you live until you die
you will have left this place alive
Track Name: Middle English
breathe out, breathe in
all these words were never meant to hit the ground so coldly
but they do.
you’ve lost your friends
you lost them in a poker game to keep away the confederates
and you did.

right now we have chosen quick recovery
right now…

so mock your kill
to strike some fear into all those who’d only make a bigger mess
than you would.
and lock your doors
although you know they’ll never make their way thru the dense autumn mist
of your heart.

right now we’ll fly kites above the foggy lake
right now…

right now we have won
right now love is true
right now we have made this real
right now

breathe out, breathe in
all these words were never meant to hit the floor so coldly
but they do.
Track Name: Driftwood
countlessly
you know you took it endlessly
and with greedy hands you sleep
faking all your dreams
in a farewell scene
in one final bow, fast asleep
where you need your enemies
because you dont have anything
when you count me out

doomed, a mouse in the snow
a common thief, running out on belief
with nothing to show
I wont hold you back

so come confess
when did you lose your consciousness?
you know I’d help you search for it
but you let me go
and I wont come back
unless you take me back today
because we dont have yesterday
and I wont hold you back

just run, like I knew that you would
but let me know why you wont come back
why you never came back for me
just let me know why you wont come back
why you never came back for me
just let me know why you wont come back
why you never came back…just to see me suffering
Track Name: From Me to You, Miss Kangaroo
it was early in the morning
when the stars were not yet gone
like a photograph I kept it for luck
and I love the sight of evening
where time is always new
and I hold this view in a jar
and I dont know the song
that mends the tragedy of my loss
and I dont mean to keep you
but I dont know when I’ll see you next, I said

cause I wont be coming back, I’m staying in the city of my heart
I wont be coming back, I’m staying in the city of my heart

and the rumors in the vineyard
they’ll rot under the sun
and the singing of the past
makes light of all thats come
and the leaves, theyre always changing
and the birds, they never die
they’re always in the morning
chirping at my side
and I dont understand
how the world of my design could go so wrong
but I know that you can
you’ll make it right if only for a while
and then…as foretold…you’ll take your bow and say goodnight

and I wont be coming back, I’m staying in the city of my heart
I wont be coming back, I’m staying in the city of my heart
I wont come back now
Track Name: Map of the Stars
I taught you how to be lonely
I know you dont want to waste any time
but I do
and I told you, but you never did listen
that I wont live in a place where emotions are strange
where there’s no pain
cause you know that it keeps alive
and you know it will save me
but you dont want to save anyone

and I showed you what you should do now
when no one, no one will let you say: “I’ll lead the way”
cause I’ve seen all of your charts
and the pocket map of the stars in your room
you’ll be there soon
and dont ever say you regret it
no, never…never unless you know you do
oh I know I’ll miss you
but I know…

you’ll see that you need to be free
of me and all my dreams
so free and alive
Track Name: Turnips
in opaque breath, in sudden arms insufficience
contender fines, inaccurate locator cries
you run in circle state of mind, pretentious lines
follow decline of resurrection alibi
for longing hands, any hand in counter-clock time
there you are
there you are

the rules that break dont make a sound
dont carry on the story crown
remain mis-lead, miscomprehend
the words that claim the right of refusal shakedown

you run in circle state of mind
Track Name: June Bugs in July
in a bad dream once I was a lost detail
so nobody wept for me when I had failed
but the best part was my day had only just begun
so I laughed a bit over tea with my best friend

and I’m always sorry that you know your way home
cause I wont last long alone

when I was older I cried for I felt nothing left inside
but there you are, when I cant go on
in your tiny armor there, it’s you, it’s you

when the daylight fades we’ll shine our brightest
in the vacant hours where sight’s of no use, we move
and if midnight breaks we’ll ride forever
always wishing life was this good…this good
but it’s not, I know
Track Name: Jesys
jesus have you lost your son?
helpless as anyone
the cool air may be tempting
but it aint what you need
cause I know what it is you seek
the righteous made free
but patience at the fire side
beats being out in the rain

and mother have you found your way?
the years have renounced their stay
as daylight confides in me
we wouldnt turn you away

sun shine down on me
sunshine
Track Name: A Monet in the Vatican
in a rainstorm, in a mirror
I see smiles that dont belong
in one fell swoop I feel it
I see a thousand broken hearts

I will sing a song to lift my spirits
wont you sing along?

On a sleepless night I dream it
I lie awake, but I dont mind
in a play it comes to this, love
a monet in the vatican

I will sing a song to lift my spirits
wont you sing along?
wont you sing along?
Track Name: Ever (and Farewell)
my life is gone
my life’s all I had
dont leave me, dont leave me tonight
I slowly fled
I’m sorry for that
please love me, love me and all I meant

though youre away
I’ll always be there
please listen, be safe all the time
I know you’re scared
I know you’ll forget
dont worry, I’ll write all the time

my life has passed
better now for that
these worries, these regrets wont last
fortunes may tell
but they dont understand
love so strong that words cannot match

(my life is gone
I’m sorry for that
terrible, but you knew all along)
