Track Name: Colors
Walking round that corner
What do I see?
Pretty thing with sunglasses
Lookin' at me

Got a premonition
She's gonna be mine
I'm gonna love her yeah
Till the end of time

Some say my life is dreary but I am
Dreaming in colors
Not one to retreat but I am
Dreaming in colors

Some say my life is dreary but I am
Dreaming in colors
Not one to retreat but I am
Dreaming in colors

Junkie wearing my clothes
I think I’m going blind
I went up to tell him
I think those are mine

Well he spoke to me in sonnets
It was one that I read
About the sunrise baby
I kept it in my head

Some say my life is dreary but I am
Dreaming in colors
Not one to retreat but I am
Dreaming in colors

Some say my life is dreary but I am
Dreaming in colors
Not one to retreat but I am
Dreaming in colors

Some say my life is dreary but I am
Dreaming in colors
Not one to retreat but I am
Dreaming in colors

Some say my life is easy but I am
Dreaming in colors
Not one to retreat but I am
Dreaming in colors
Track Name: Aphrodisiac
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Dream of You
I lost your scent in the rain
Your arms they release me
You told me love ain't no game
You said it ain't easy

I told you I felt insane
When I feel your arms relapse
My love I found you now relax
I counted on me to be that

Car chase in a midnight cave and I know you know you shouldn't look
You can't see me oh hey you can’t see me oh hey oh hey

She said love ain't no game
She said don't be tame

I will love you
I will love you
I will love you

Cause I dream of you
Cause I dream of you
Cause I dream of you
Cause I dream of you

Carving my fantasy
Don't tell me what I can be
Just let me grow you'll see
The light he soon will show me

It begins with me
It begins with seas

Some say we author our dreams
I dream of you darling

Some say we author our dreams
I dream of you darling

Some say we author our dreams
I dream of you darling

Some say we author our dreams
I dream of you darling

Some say we author our dreams
I dream of you
Track Name: Ocean of Eyes
Her name was Emerald
She was a pedal to my heart sometimes
I knew her once, I knew her twice, so it was said to me

Her name was Saphire
She took her pictures, took her laughs,
Took it all now It cant get back

Her name was Ruby
She barely knew me barely coo'd me,
Lovers mixed with laughter truly

I wonder if she's in debt to me
I asked her if she would sue or use magic at all

And your lifetime is up and you can't get it back
And you're dying and old then you're off the map

And you can't stand up
And I cant sit down
And you're going around
With some android hounds

Look at the sky
It's so beautiful today
I sat and watched the waves go by
I sat and watched an ocean of eyes

Your eyes
My eyes
Some days I cant be sly

My eyes
Your thighs
Sometimes you cant rely

Somedays lofty
Drinking coffee
Get these silly things off me

Morning taffy
Always happy
Please be tinsel tongue tacky

Somedays lofty
Drinking coffee
Get these silly things off me

Morning taffy
Always happy
Please be tinsel tough tacky

Look at the sky
Its so beautiful today
I sat and watched the waves go by
I sat and watched an ocean of eyes

Look at the sky
Its so beautiful today
I sat and watched the waves go by
I sat and watched an ocean of eyes
Track Name: AC Parade
I've always been good at true love
But i guess you already knew that
So I wake up mourning for your
Love's another day, that's sojourn

Another way to go
Another way to go

Another face to show
The pain inside my frame

Back when I met ya
You knew I was kin
You knew I was dumb
You knew I was Ren

I'm willing to bet ya
I'll try not to forget ya

And the sky it takes a hold on me like a melody
In twice-fold harmony with your soul in me and your soul and mine

And we can't rely so we will say bye
And we can't rewind but we'll make it back
To those heart attacks, that we put on wax
In the hospital I saw your face
Track Name: Opium Beach
Ex-cheerleaders cheer at opium beach
The sand is white, yes there's coke at your feet
Atoms shake on the floor beneath
Nothing’s concrete not even concrete

Opium beach, where the old souls roam
Celluloid self and cellular phones
The old basket Red Riding Hood took home
No one is home

Forever seek peace
Forever marquess
My may flower weeps
When April wears cleats

Forever seek peace
Forever marquess
My may flower weeps
When April wears cleats

I'm one with nature but I would never date her
Curb her, serve her, one day you'll deserve her

Stems in the ground reach
Far beneath the mountain peak
Wind echoes at my side
Universal alibi
Track Name: Jane's Jam
I, took a bite of jane’s jam
Straight out from the jar, god damn
Sitting there all comfy, oh man
jane's jam jane's jam jane's jam jane's jam

I, took a bite of jane’s jam
Sat spinning, looking at the fan
Lying there so comfy, oh man
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I, took a bite of jane’s jam
Started getting weird and I can’t
Wait to get up out of this land
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I, took a bite of jane’s jam
Found a purple ocean and swam
Found a rock all soggy and damp
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I, took a bite of jane’s jam
Saw her waiting for me oh man
Looked at me and took my hand
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I, took a bite of jane’s jam
Looked up at the stars, found land
Sinking into the ocean of jam
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I, took a bite of jane’s jam
Sank there due to her command
Looked at me and released my hand
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I
Sat
To watch
The sky

I
Tried
To say
Goodbye

I, couldn’t see jane’s hand
Sank in the purple ocean of jam
Lost myself in a wet kind of land
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I, want to be who I am
Even if alone I do stand
Just to see the sunrise, oh man
I thought you knew I thought you knew

I
Tried
To say
Goodbye

I
Sat
To watch
The sky

But I, But I
But I, But I
Track Name: Night Gown
The Universe looks pretty in a nightgown
The Universe looks pretty in a nightgown

Don't frown
Don't frown
Just look around
Just look around look around look around

Your eyes, they climb and split like a valley
Sitting in alley, thinking of you
Thinking of you

A hotel room, in the bathroom. I walk out
The melody intertwines with my mind
With my mind with my mind

Sanskrit lamps
Going down a type of trance
A time of day
A night away

An owl’s flying
A bird in flight
A forgotten night

The universe she looks so pretty in her nightgown
The universe, the universe looks so pretty in a nightgown

Don't you frown
Look around

The universe looks pretty in a nightgown
The universe looks pretty in a nightgown

Look around

(Yay!)
Track Name: Tea Again
I love you dear
So just kiss my ear
With your pretty voice
You made that pretty choice

Tea Again
With me again
It’s easy to dream of you

Seems again
It's me again
Who's fallen in love with you

Tea on the counter
Looking for some honey
She waited to come down

Tea on the counter
Looking for some honey
She's kinda funny

Tea again
A poet's name
I dream of white and you

I have visions of your infinite smile
I haven't felt that way in a while

So baby come dig my style
So baby baby come dig my style style style

You're running out of time
You're running out of time

So just come thru and see through and knock on my window
I'll hold you and feel you and love you and heal you
And love you and love you and love you and love you and love
