Track Name: Lost Sun, Golden Moon
Hey You, silver spoon
You're a sad sad song
You're a sing-along
You're a sunny day
and you oughta run away
'cause you're a silver spoon
you're a golden moon

Hey you wild horse
Time is on your tail
Pretty angel hair
Melancholy eyes
You're an orphaned sun
You're a castaway
You're a golden moon

And it's a lost sky with a spiral daylight
And it's a night sky with a golden nightlight
And she's an orphan washed out at the tide line
And she's alone now at the dark horizon
And her desires are reflected in the fire
fled down from the golden moon
She's alive at the golden moon

Turn on the nightlight
Turn on the firelight
Turn on the flashlight
Turn on the firefly
Crystals in the night sky
Reflections in the water light
Reflections of your body
Shadows of my minds eye
Track Name: Paintress
I think it's time that he go home
The folks down here they've all built glass on stone
The girls they drink and smoke alone
Once a paintress now a working girl

I can see it in her eyes
She finds it hard to look up at the sky
It reminds her of a girl
Who once thought that she could rule the world

I will hold your hand and take you there
I will keep you safe from suicide

'Cause it's the final piece of the recipe
And you are beautiful in spite of everything
And we don't have anything to believe in
You're a goddess, you're a queen, you're a woman

He's preserving seventeen
She took him in the sand, unleash me
It's never silent in her mind now
Afraid to love too much, in fear of not loving enough

I will rescue you from boredom
I'll undress you in the backseat

'Cause it's the final piece of the recipe
And you are beautiful in spite of everything
And we don't have anything to believe in
You're a goddess, you're a queen, you're a woman

I would love you in my nightmare
Lose our purity at twilight

'Cause it's the final piece of the recipe
And you are beautiful in spite of everything
And we don't have anything to believe in
You're a goddess, you're a queen, you're a woman
Track Name: White Feather (Satin Opera)
Tell me what you want me to be
I'll be it
Tell me what you need me to be
I'll be it
Despite my attempts at individuality
Tell me what you want me to be

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
I'm on it
Don't you take responsibility
I got it
You're shoulders lookin' light
of anger and paralysis
I can be your sense of sanity

But don't expect a dialog
Your epilogue
This episode
is paranoid
Say goodbye

And I see you more in '57
Such a common girl, firm plasticity
So certain to give credence to a heaven
It's so porcelain
She's so delicate

Teach me what you want me to be
I'll be it
Teach me what you need me to be
I'll be it
Regardless of my distaste for authority
Teach me what you want me to

Don't expect a dialog
You violate my tidal line
I'm paranoid
No goodbye

And I see you more in '57
Such a common girl, firm plasticity
So certain to give credence to a heaven
It's so porcelain
She's so delicate

She's fine
In Time
Track Name: In Between Your Eyes
He said to the TV
there'll be no tomorrow night
He plead with the radio
there'll be no tomorrow night
He high on the dial
there'll be no tomorrow night
a forgone conclusion
So take it off in your elegance
intrusion, collusion collusion

Who do you think that you are when you talk to me?

He said to the banker
there'll be no tomorrow night
She's a fashionista
There'll be no tomorrow night
Shed your material
There'll be no tomorrow night
and it's gone
Move on
Fallen society in its elegance
In motion

In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies

Who do you think that you are when you talk to me?

You're a child
You're a god
I'm so in awe of your elements
It's written

In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
In between your eyes where the sun lies
Track Name: No Shame No Borders
Breakdown from the countdown
sat down
sat down with the party grease in your hair
I look around, no friends in the corners
I look down, no shame no borders
Call my number, call my mind to your energy
You gotta sexy sexy piece of the recipe
Back down from the countdown
sat down
She gets up and falls right to the floor

This is the time
permission, elation, foundation
Grant me the night
I only will ask you this time
I'm not a fool
I crawl through landmines
I see the light
I feel your infinite touch

I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)
I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)
I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)
I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)

Infinite night
You take me in your car
AM flight, after midnight
Crown me with kingdoms and then I want to be god
Comfort me with love and then I wanna live on a farm

I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)
I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)
I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)
I really want to be there
The party is all greased in your hair
(Look down no Shame no Borders)
