Track Name: Carolina Birdsong
To the coast
To the sea
They'll make me breakfast
They'll make me tea

And what is life but a search for satisfaction
Looking out below for some place to be
And all I've got is this Carolina Birdsong
It just came to me when I was stuck up in a tree

Fly on with dark clouds close behind
They take away the sunshine
And I know someday they'll take my body away
But they can't take away the melody

And what is love but a cursory selection
A magical proximity
And what is lust but a chemical erection
It was gravity that pulled me in
to the tree where something in
side of you wanted everything to do with me

Oh, I'll fly on
To the sea...
to the coast...
She makes me breakfast
She makes me toast

I'll fly on
To the coast
To the sea
She makes me breakfast
She makes me tea
Track Name: New Orleans
You can blow the saxophone all night
And you can strut down Charles Street with style
The Zulu King has bottle caps for eyes
Where the inside is outside

The Ocean bring the rains
We sink to the bottom
I live underwater now
Can't breathe

New Orleans today. New Baghdad tomorrow.

You can swing a hammer all night long
And you can sing your favorite funeral song
And Oh my god! There's a hole in my house to the sky
And now the outside is inside

The kids bring back the pain
In broken bodies and airplanes
This country's underwater now
Still can't breathe

New Orleans TODAY. New Baghdad tomorrow.
Track Name: SoHud Bedroom
Yeah yeah I wont forget you
You see that life's too long for blame
It only caused me a little pain
It only cost me a couple of days

Hard is the hammer (That shapes the world)
Stretched is the mirror (That bends the mind)
Short is the love (That builds a fire)
Sharp is the knife (That cuts the lamb)

I wont forget you
You see that life's to long for regret
It only cost me a cigarette
It only cost me a cigarette

Hard is the hammer (That shapes the world)
Stretched is the mirror (That bends the mind)
Cold is the wind (That builds a fire)
Sharp is the knife (That cuts the food)

"The pain that's beside you will guide you"

I know that blood and wine will stain
And I could never wear that shirt again
I put on a smile and turned away
I walked naked into the rain

No, I wont forget you
No, no, I won't forget you
No baby, I wont' forget you
I wont forget you
I can' t forget you, baby
Track Name: Phoenix
The Phoenix sun rose in the East
And kissed me softly on the cheek
The sun was warm and the smiles came easy
The Phoenix bird would make a nest with me

She told me bout the world that she had seen
She said, "Life is beautiful when you have wings"
I said, "Babe, I like the ground I like to stay on my feet"
She said, "Boy you would like to come along with me"

And I've never seen a brighter day
In all my life
I'm swimming through the sky
And we got so high
The sun touched our bodies
And it melted my soul
And we felt so free

When the sun went away and the day was done
She took to the West to follow the sun
She said she had to go but I didn't believe her
Then she spread her wings and she set me free
She spread her wings and she set me free

And I've never seen a brighter day in all my life
I'm swimming through the sky
And we got so high
The sun touched our bodies and it melted my soul
And we felt so free
And everyone could see
Track Name: To Be Free (San Francisco)
We grew up on tropical fruit
We grew up with sand in our sheets
and comfortable dreams

Come take a walk out in the woods with me
We'll build a fire to scare away the animals
We will find yellow berries &
other fun things to eat in there
So, kiss your sister on the cheek
And tell your mom and daddy I love them both
Cause it's time TO BE FREE

We woke up with love at our side
We made love under starry skies
tears in our eyes

Come make your way out to the sea with me
We'll build a sail, attach it to the raft we make
We will see smiling fish and other fun friends in the sea
So, leave all your demons behind girl
And say a little prayer for all mankind
Cause you gotta be free

You gotta be free to run and hide
Or could it be that free is found on the inside?

We woke up under sunny skies
We will drift on and on for the rest of our lives

Dive deep into the water with me
No light, no sound no need to breathe
We will see all the angels and the devils swimming free
so, close your eyes and take my hand girl
We have to die and turn to sand
and only then we'll be free
