LYRICS SHEET:


A Message To You

There's no such
Thing as lust
When you know that you're dreaming

Holy ducks
Have no trust
In the laws of reason

Was it a change
To have a ball and a chain
With no instrument but your hands?

Now you're seeing what you've been painting
Yeah you're getting what you've been giving

A message to you
Is a message to me too
Ain't no use in lying babe

Compromise
In disguise
In the course of lightning


No Need for A Proof

Are you on the scene
Ain't a word I'm saying that I don't believe

I'm a love machine
Ain't a place I mentioned
That I haven't seen

Constellations rising
Oceans on the shore
I'll make the move for you
In case you need a proof
Of my love


Caught In The Game

She was some kind of low cast
Some type of girl on the attack
She had some tricks under the hat
Yet I assume you've had enough of that

Keep changing names under the table
Sleepwalking gangs in the stable

No second time when you're on the first
No third attempt when you're on the last
Seems like it's been a year or maybe a century
Not sure how much or how many

Again and again to make the story plain
You're just a lovechild
But there's no love that I see
In your eyes

Again and again
You're caught in the game
Like a lab rat
But there's no reason
Why you should play it now


The Crumbs Of Our Dreams

All our kids are growing
But our love is lost
Walking down the streets
Remembered of the cost

Seems like yesterday
In the crumbs of our dreams
You didn't have anything to say
Pockets of your blue jeans

Now the lines on your hand
At least the ones I understand
Don't seem to predict anything good babe
Anything to me

At least you couldn't turn your back on me

Don't let her waste her time
In the crumbs of our dreams

Don't let her waste her time
In the crumbs of our dreams


From Water and Clay

You came along, decided to stay
Built up a home from water and clay
Love was the name

It won't be long 'til you start to play
The games that we have on this part of the bay
Love was the name

Serpentines and levantines
Gilded doors and mirror eyes
Love was the name

Not This Time

If you really do
Want me to
Turn my life around
Show a softer side

If her predictions are true
It won't last long this time

Oh how I wish I had another clue
To make it last this time

If you would take my hand
I'd make you understand
That I ain't going nowhere
Before you show me where


Waking Up The Girl

Waking up the bird breaking up the night
I'm telling all the world that this is not my fight
Right below the day, right above the night

Consideration
I made a love declaration
And there's no peace that I find
Inside your troubled eyes


The Nature Of The Clap

How are you today my dear
There's no need to hide your fears
All in all you said it right
It's in the nature of the trap

Asking questions I don't why
Is there a season for the troubled minds
To wreck havoc on the little things
Then leave the block for some other scenes


Objet Trouvé

Blacket out emotion
Ain't that true
What kind of lotion
Yeah do you use
Slow tranformation
Now ain't that blue
What type of motion
How do you do

You keep on giving and giving
But won't be long
The kind of love that I'm driving
Is travelling a million miles per hour
Per hour

Unknown emotion
Now are you through?
Going through the motion
I don't know
What kind of loving
You are used used to
A sense of elation
In your crew
