Track Name: Back Home
at home they comb her hair and call her dog
away he dreams of girls in catalogs
the rupture in the hills fences in, fences in, fences
innocence is built after sin, sin

quicksand doesn't cut and nor does she
the woman on the bed fast asleep
for hate and callous-loathe lie within
but beautiful she glows, moonlit skin, skin

what does it take to be?
what does it take to be back home?
what does it take to be?
what does it take to be alone, to
to be alone, to, to be alone?

her green dress on the train feathers so
his peacock girl looks great in the snow
they lay awake all day, cold and close
cold and close, cold and
closer on the train. but then she goes, goes

oh oh oh

what does it take to be?
what does it take to be back home?
what does it take to be?
what does it take to be alone, to
to be alone, to, to be alone?

to be alone
Track Name: Katy Anna Perry
katy anna perry, locked within the city.
the walls came down around her, the walls came down around her.
katy anna perry, always in a hurry.
her mother didn't know her, she was so very pretty.

and oh i know i've lost her,
and i know it doesn't cross her
mind, cause love always surrounds her,
but i'm so glad i found her.

katy anna perry, new orleans without me.
kentucky made her crazy, and so did i i'm sorry.
katy anna perry, her answer always "maybe",
we couldn't be together, but she said she'd have my babies.

and i can't breathe without her,
and all my dreams are about her,
sometimes can't stand to be around her,
but i'm so glad i found her.

the walls came down around her
the walls came down around her
the walls came down around her
the walls came, walls came down.
Track Name: Copper Wire
everyone is god, this i'm sure of.
we can do what we want if we do more of
the things that make it good, and stop our wasting time,
no more wasting
no wasting time,
no more wasting...

if i've got a lot it's because my
body is a spot where love resides,
it will travel through my bones like a copper wire,
like a copper
a copper wire
like a copper
a copper wire
like a copper wire.

i will live for all i can live for,
and i will give you all you'd be good for,
i'll never say you can't have what you desire,
have what you
what you desire,
have what you
what you desire,
have what you desire.
Track Name: Little Face (live)
is it written, is it written on my little face?
is it written, is it written? can you read it babe?
that i am lost without you.

is it obvious in just the way i walk inside?
is it obvious that i can't even see your eyes
through a wall, a wall of darkness?

why do i get worse as you get better?
why do i get worse as you get better?
why am i bone dry as you get wetter?
is it worse than to thirst in the desert?

can i be your baby? can i blow the candle out?
though the world is crazy, can i save your heart from doubt?
can i please just be beside you?

is it obvious in just the way i'm still around?
is it obvious that my whole faith is holding out?
i would wait for you forever.

why do i get worse as you get better?
why do i get worse as you get better?
why do i wanna die as you go get her?
is it worse to know hurt or to've known pleasure?

why do i?
why do i?
why do i?

why do i?
why do i?
why do i?

why do i?
why do i wanna die?
why do i?
why..
Track Name: Taking Video
the sky he is a father and he has a sun
who shines on everyone, shines on everyone, shines on everyone
the earth she is a mother, she's the only one
who grows with everyone, grows with everyone, grows with everyone
you'd like to know your brother but you never will,
he's livin on the run, livin on the run, livin on the run.
you'd like to have a sister but you never will,
she's singin with the nuns, singin with the nuns, singin with the nuns.

are your parents there taking video?

i'd hate to hurt my lover but i'm sure i will,
i batter everyone, batter everyone, batter everyone.
i'd hate to have another but i'm sure i will,
i run from everyone, run from everyone, run from everyone.
i'd like to leave my body but it's hard i've heard,
i'd rather be a bird, rather be a bird, rather be a bird.
oh just to fan my feathers in the golden sun,
and not bother anyone, bother anyone, bother anyone.

are your parents there taking video?

are your parents there?


you are alive,
so survive.
Track Name: The Things I Knew Before
i'm not gonna ask you again for your love, dear.
i would never last if i stayed at your door.
i'll just let it pass, try and clean out my head, here,
and get back to the things i knew before.

i thought you and i, we could have a good family.
i thought you and i, we could have a good time.
but i did not remember that time is always for me,
it is always my own time.

when i ever die, i will hope that it's better
on the other side, where i'm never alone.
have i been alone, or have i been with friends, now?
have i always been at home?

i'm not gonna ask you again for your love, dear.
i would never last if i stayed at your door.
i'll just let it pass, try and clean out my head, here,
and get back to the things i knew before.

get back to the things i knew before
get back to the things i knew before
and get back to the things i knew before.
Track Name: One Night I Found God (acoustic)
one night i found god in my room all alone.
i said "oh my god!" and i shook in my bones.
since then i've been calm waitin for to go home
to my "oh my god" when this life it is done.

i've been in love two or three times at the most.
suspicious of love, could it all be a hoax?
am i a dumb girl in my room in the light
concocting a love so i can't feel the night?

i like to crack smiles and i like to have fun,
but two of my friends died at the edge of a gun.
have i forgotten how it felt to be stunned?
may it remain in my heart at the bottom.

i've wanted to die as long as i can recall.
good thing that i never let the knife fall.
i wouldn't have known all the joy i do now...
...joy to be alive, joy that cannot be bound.

i want to sing out to the sky, to the clouds.
i want to sing loud, make a thundering sound.
but one day my sweet voice will be deep underground.
no one of god's gifts can we keep once we've found.

if i could give advice so that people could hear,
i would say "think twice before allowing fear
to sneak into your mind and to color your life.
an act done out of fear, it can never be right."

one night i found god in my room all alone.
i said "oh my god!" and i shook in my bones.
since then i've been calm, waiting for to go home
to my "oh my god" when this life it is done.
