Track Name: Wilhemena's Eyes
You never introduced me to that hidden side of you
My freeze-frame caught your viciousness, the cold air hit me and I knew
you didn't have a chance, girl, to invade my privacy
How could I trust that part of you not meant for me to see ?

With every passing moment there's another change in you
depending on the person girl that you are talking to
You think you're fooling everyone but that is just not true
Go throw that open can of worms into your witches' brew

Who are you ?
Girl your face is glowin' green but your eyes are burnin' blue
Don't you dare
Don't you come on like an angel when the devil's lurking there

Oh I'm no longer looking into Wilhemena's eyes
I've opened up to you before and that was not wise

Sorceror's apprentice better look before you leap
Ski lift to the summit but that fall is rather steep
Darkness in the faces of the company you keep
Sink into the shadows and you know you're in too deep

Who are you ?
Do your lies turn into demons when you start to think they're true ?
Don't you dare
Don't you prey on me cause I won't walk inside your dragon's lair

No I'm no longer looking into Wilhemena's eyes
You led me down that road before right to my demise

Running thru the forest but the flames are getting higher
I must lose Wilhemena before the sky turns into fire
If I said that I'm not tempted, girl, then I would be a liar
and though I've seen the ending I still have this strange desire
Track Name: Jesus or the Devil
Saw a shadow walking straight across the night sky
A little voice told me that this was no hitchhike
In the middle of the highway crossin' over the white line
a woman defiant, starin' at my headlights

She wasn't gonna move, car couldn't get around her
It happened so fast that even now I wonder
Car swerved past, by a miracle we missed her
Time stood still in the eye of a twister

Here I am drivin' half lost
thru a town where trouble won't let you go by
Hope I find my way out

Late night chase scene winds around the river
An unknown someone, the presence made me shiver
A white van passes, but then it pulls over
Another confrontation, this time it was not her

I can't calm down now not as hard as I try
Saw Jesus or the Devil standing by the roadside
He held out his hand as he looked into my mind's eye
Out in oblivion, golly how the time flies
flies
flies
flies

I heard a strange voice emergin' thru the static
Believin' what he said, it was almost automatic
For such a long ride, it was over in minutes
A great conversation, but I wasn't in it

I can't calm down now still feel his vibrations
Heard Jesus or the Devil on an FM station
Commercials came on, I was losin' my patience
Drivin' along in suspended animation

Wide eyes glued open so long
I've been wonderin' if I'm gonna be able to sleep
Got to check in somewhere

I can't calm down now, can't remember quite why
Jesus or the Devil was standin' by the roadside
His highbeams were flashin' at us after we drove by
thru the rear view mirror, like he was sayin' Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Track Name: You Gave Me The Arrows (to kill you)
You told me
You told me
Yeah you told me
You wrote it all down
The details
Such details
Exactly
Where your soul could be found
I listened
Let it happen
The magic
You’re feelin’ inside
The wild things
You told me
What you wanted
Now we’re goin’ for a ride

You gave me the arrows to kill you
You gave me the power to crawl into your mind
And here I am now
So what are gonna do with me
What are you gonna do with me
What are you gonna do with me
What are you gonna do with me

You’re breathin’
I’m breathin’
The feeling
Watchin’ you watchin’ me
I’m singing
Your number
Your secrets
That you let me see
You wrote me
The lyrics
Your love forced
That song in my head
I felt it
Let it happen
I shot you
And now you are dead

You gave me the arrows to kill you
You gave me the power to crawl into your mind
And here I am now
So what are gonna do with me
What are you gonna do with me
What are you gonna do with me
What are you gonna do with me

I told you
I told you
Yeah, I told you
You wrote it all down
You became
My weakness
Your voice lifted
My feet off the ground
I’m breathin’
You’re breathin’
I’m watchin
You watchin’ me watchin’ you
You said let
It happen
You lured me
Oh baby you knew

I gave you the arrows that killed me
I gave you the power to crawl (walk) into my mind
And I see you’re stayin’
So what are you gonna do with me
what are you gonna do with me
what are you gonna do with me
what are you gonna do with me...
Track Name: Stuck in my Head
I was trying to abuse you
and I didn't expect you to stay
Yeah, I meant to abuse you
but then you had something to say
I needed to hate you
but your words went and stuck in my head
I was trying to abuse you
Then your words went and stuck in my head

You told me I didn't fool you
You could tell that my heart's made of gold
I was sure that I fooled you
at the time, with my blood running cold
Oh, I had to dismiss you
and your words went and stuck in my head
I wanted to hate you
but your words went and stuck in my head

Surprising wind caressed my mind
the words that you were whispering
You somehow found the shortcut to my soul
For one exquisite moment I just lost myself
my place in time
Got swept away from what was real
I crossed the last forgiving line

I continued to flog you
with my voice that can cut like a knife
I wasn't relenting
meant to give you a piece of my life
You stayed and responded
told me you're standing by what you said
I tried to stay focused
but your words were still stuck in my head

You didn't know me from Adam
and I don't know you from New Year's Eve
but somehow we both drank from the stolen glass
I thought I was a fortress
but you found my keys left in the door
You were only passing by
I was naked, waiting, wanting more

Finally you just went silent
I was left there a shell of myself
Came to you so violent
but I left there as somebody else
I needed to break you
but it looks like you broke me instead
I was trying to abuse you
til your words went and stuck in my head
Track Name: Wild Wind Blowin' (original)
Coming to your little town
on the outskirts of your freedom
when the tumbleweeds begin to roll
with an urgency that might possibly scare you
There is someone who means you no harm
Yeah you are safe to let yourself go now
For this lone moment, for no real reason
hold on and sail me like a wild wind blowin'

No I'm not waiting to find the things that you might call treasure
The things that money can't buy are the things
I'd gladly put up the house and car for
You know what I'm looking for
so let's not waste another long minute
oh you must know my soul is open
for you to use me like a wild wind blowin'

There's a wild wind (Let me take you away)
There's a wild wind (cause I want you today)
Oh I'm not afraid to step across that line
When it comes to you I couldn't be unkind

The irrepressible force meets the irresistible object
and both become dependent upon the rhythm of the other's heartbeat
When that syncopation happens
I'll be there to savor the moment
and when we're swirling around in the desert
feel free to take me, there's a wild wind blowin'

There's a wild wind (Let me take you away)
There's a wild wind (cause I love you today)
Oh I'm not afraid to lose what isn't mine
and it's you so I could never be unkind

There's a wild wind (Oh you take me away)
There's a wild wind (Do you want me today?)
and I'm not afraid to love what isn't mind
You must know, to you I'd never be unkind
Track Name: I came, I saw
I came
I saw
but I didn't conquer you
you were the last one to hold out

and I'm not gonna forget to do my thang
it's the only thang I know how to do
and don't run away from the pain I brang
cause you know that my feelings are coming from you

I came
I saw
but I didn't conquer you
you were the last one to hold out
I came
I saw
did not wanna conquer you
I let you know what I was about

and I may not be able to change my ways
or is that just the way that it seems ?
All I know is I keep on repeating them
when things get in the way of me chasing my dream

You know you're feelin the same way
there is a time and a place for that
and the feeling will nevah go away
in fact, you're scared to let it come in
I know you're feelin' the same way
You know you're feelin' the same way
You know I know you're feelin' the same way
I came, I saw, did I conquer ?

I came
I saw
made all kinds of time for you
You were the first to hold on
You came
You saw
You made me your point of view
And we stayed up to see the dawn

and I'm not gonna act like the past is gone
cause it's inside of me, inside you
And as long as I'm free to be who I am
I will still be the person you knew

I loved
I remembered
I never let you change me
into someone I didn't know
I kept it inside
stayed open wide
and the fog that blanketed the valley
lingered for most of the ride

and I'm not gonna forget to do my thang
It's the only thang I know how to do
and you'll know that you left me all feelin' pangs
but those feelings are coming from you
Track Name: The Crux of Things
I spend a lot of time just hangin' and talkin' to her
open my window, she flies in like a bird
She never listens when I tell her the crux of things
but I believe that she absorbs every word

I think she's here to stay
I'm thankful for today

Nobody knows about the world that we have between us
Seems to be happening outside time and space
Sometimes I notice a black hole in the crux of things
but when I start to move it all falls in place

I guess that we're okay
The darkness goes away

I try not to count on people, they often let you down
but at the worst of moments, that's when she shines
Don't spend much energy deciding the crux of things
and when the morning comes I'll open the blinds

and she'll come out to play
That's what we are per se

Track Name: Awakening Day
Awakening day
Has it finally come ?
I don't know, but for once we are makin' some time
The view out the window seems clearer than ever before
but I won't be waiting around for awakening day
'cause we've gotten much further along before losin' our way
Yeah, that's what I say

Are you prepared for awakening day ?
Well, I'm glad to hear it, but here is the rub
There's resolve in your voice
but your words don't quite ring true to me
You crave as you patiently wait for awakening day
and as long as the fruit's still forbidden, you might go astray
Hope you do okay

Watching the world pass us by like the scenery
in the background of an old TV show
I've seen that same street corner newsstand again and again
Yeah, here it comes now !

Awakening day
I've got something to hide
my life from myself, that would be a good start
If I could forget all the things that I couldn't quite learn
then I might be ready to say it's awakening day
but when you're alone in the night, the past won't go away
and that's why I play

I'm not gonna wait for awakening day
Track Name: You Never Know
I met a woman and she’s gettin' inside my mind
But I sure as hell don’t want her to stop,
that feelin’ seems to treat me kind
In fact I’m prayin’ it’ll last for one more day
But just when I’m close to getting’ the truth,
I’m right there, and she’ll say

You never know
You never know
and I’ll never know
Just how she feels
You never know
You never know
I’ll never know
Just how she feels

It’s been forever since I felt that air of mystery
Now I see the future as well as the past
just flashing right in front of me
She lets me love her and her potion fills my head
A few times I pushed her to tell me the score,
and this is what she said

You never know
You never know
and I’ll never know
Just how she feels
You never know
You never know
I’ll never know
Just how she feels

She knows exactly how to knock me on my head
I’m in so deep, but hey you know, I made my bed

She lets me love her and her potion fills my head
She lets me love her and emotion fills my head
She lets me love her and the ocean fills my head
She lets me love her and devotion fills my head

A little while back it was just another year
Now I’m all wrapped up in this beautiful thing
and I still don’t know how I got here
I once used to say that you can never be too sure
But it only seems to comfort me now
to wonder what’s in store
Track Name: The Girl Who Can't Remember
Summer isn't coming for the girl who can't remember
Constant rain pounds on her window as she wakes
If you hear a distant siren, oh you could be in her neighborhood
You'll soon be on the very path she takes
You'd make the same decisions that she makes

Calendars are flipping for the girl who can't remember
There's no baggage piled on her conveyor belt
so she better make it matter, as she knows her time is limited
the ice cubes in her beverage start to melt
and you'll end up feelin' all the things she felt

Oh the world does change
for the girl who can't remember
It's a brand new day
but it never seems too different
when no other memories get in the way

Resting on her laurels ain't appealing as an option
cause she barely recognizes all she's done
There's a crockpot in the pantry that has seen its share of spider webs
and salads tossed that never saw the sun
The girl who can't remember was the one

It's a brand new day
for the girl who can't remember
Life gets rearranged
Do something for me lately
oh the past was never in your DNA


Don't be feelin' sorry for the girl who can't remember
After all is said and done, she's got you beat
and even though she has no clue about the size of her own footsteps
There is music playin' up and down her street
while she moves along, another day complete
Track Name: You Must Know
You must know the way you do it to me girl
The sweet kinda love you bring to me
Yeah there was a time when I was goin' thru some changes
but that went away and now
nothin' could come between you and me

You must know the way you do it to me girl
Oh, all of that thing you give so free
Yeah there was a time when we were almost strangers
but that will not happen cause
I know what matters, you're my priority

If I ever tried to tell ya what you've meant to me
I would probably end up cryin like a fool
Oh I lay awake and wonder what I'd ever do if you were gone
and no, I couldn't go on

You must know the way you do it to me girl
Oh so many times you make me see
that I'm not all here if you are not around me
Won't take it for granted cause
I know exactly where I want to be

You must know
Track Name: Show Me
The man from Missouri has to see the show
before he believes anything he reads
and I'm stuck relyin' on my seventh sense
but still sometimes, I never do take heed

The land of Missouri is the show me state
but they didn't show me a bloody thing
cause my eyes weren't open at the time
Missouri man's the cable TV king

Show Me Show me Show me Show me
I'll trust my ears and my years baby if you don't mind
Show me show me show me
Deaf in your eyes and your mind and you know I'm not stayin'

Saw Kansas City and the Gateway Arch
or was that Nebraska and Arkansas
They all look the same where the mountains aren't
Still no one showed me anything at all

Show Me Show me Show me Show me
I'll trust my ears and my years baby if you don't mind
Show me show me show me
I'm goin' slow cause I know we're not gonna be playin'

Show Me Show me Show me Show me
I'll trust my ears and my years baby if you don't mind
Show me show me show me
Give me your words cause you know that I get what you're sayin'
Track Name: Is It Somethin' I Said?
You raise your eyes and you call me a loser
You say I've got the wrong attitude
but there's still no way that I'll ever change for you

You're so surprised when I answer your questions
or did I catch you placing the blame
Now you try to hide, but the truth won't walk away

Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?

Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?

If my opinion is hittin' you deeper
I'm guessin' that I'm probably right
but you won't face up, cause you keep it all inside

Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?

Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?
Is it somethin' I said ?

The lies came down and you never resisted
Now, it's creepin' up the back of your mind
all the constant truth that you somehow left behind

I've been waiting for that day
I've been waiting for that day
I've been waiting for that day
Yeah, the day that you admit you're wrong

I've been waiting for that day
I've been waiting for that day
I've been waiting for that day
Yeah, the day that you admit you're wrong

I've been waiting for that day (Is it somethin' I said ?)
I've been waiting for that day (Is it somethin' I said ?)
I've been waiting for that day (Is it somethin' I said ?)
Yeah, the day that you admit you're wrong

I've been waiting for that day (Is it somethin' I said ?)
I've been waiting for that day (Is it somethin' I said ?)
I've been waiting for that day (Is it somethin' I said ?)
Yeah, the day that you admit you're wrong

I'm so relieved that you had to confront it
There's only one way now you'll be free
Just to think at first, you thought you were changing me
Track Name: (Livin' on a) Treadmill
I'm livin' on a treadmill
The faster I'm goin' the more I stand still
I have to get off it - I'm not so sure that I will
It's been so long now, I don't remember

I'm livin' like a slave
Tryin' to save what I already gave
Help me to find some way out of this cave
I just can't see the light
Where is the light ?

This long frustration's just another way of life
and if I start to get my fool life together
the truth will cut like a knife

Oh, the changin' of seasons, well, it ain't gonna come around here
My soul's in the way of facin' the truth in this atmosphere

Hangin' like a trophy head
My eyes wide open but I've long been dead
Go out in the woods and see the trail I've bled
but you wouldn't want to live the life I've led
All the time I've spent
All the words I've meant
didn't make one dent

I'm livin' on a treadmill
The faster I'm goin' the more I stand still
I have to get off it - I don't know if I will
It's been so long now, I don't remember

I don't wanna remember
Track Name: Sand
Sand
runnin' thru my hands
is it a lie?
or will my fate find me at the blink of an eye?
I want more sand

Spirits playin' tricks with the hourglass
Is this the first tomorrow or is it the last?
Is it the last?
Don't wanna hear about the past

Oh I heard a voice the other day
She was talkin' as if I never went away
I tried to give her a hand
but she sunk into the quicksand

Sand
when will my demand exceed my supply?
Does the sky go into the sea?
Does the sea reach into the sky?

Oh I heard the ocean roar
Somehow I thought I might've heard it before
The current seemed oh so slow
but I got caught in the undertow, whoa

Sand
slippin' from my hands and I don't know why
Will I find my fate at the blink of an eye?
at the blink of an eye
at the blink of an eye
at the blink of an eye
Track Name: Wild Wind Blowin' (elaborate)
Coming to your little town
on the outskirts of your freedom
when the tumbleweeds begin to roll
with an urgency that might possibly scare you
There is someone who means you no harm
Yeah you are safe to let yourself go now
For this lone moment, for no real reason
hold on and sail me like a wild wind blowin'

No I'm not waiting to find the things that you might call treasure
The things that money can't buy are the things
I'd gladly put up the house and farm for
You know what I'm looking for
so let's not waste another long minute
and when we're swirling around in the desert
feel free to take me like a wild wind blowin'

Wild wind (Let me take you away)
Wild wind (cause I want you today)
and I'm not afraid to lose what isn't mine (wild wind blowin')
You must know, to you I couldn't be unkind

The irrepressible force meets the irresistible object
and both become dependent upon the rhythm of the other's heartbeat
When that syncopation happens
I'll be there to savor the moment
as long as you know my soul is open
for you to use me like a wild wind blowin'

Wild wind (Let me take you away)
Wild wind (cause I need you today)
and I'm not afraid to use what isn't mine (wild wind blowin')
When it comes to you I couldn't be unkind

Wild wind (Let me take you away)
Wild wind (cause I love you today)
and I'm not afraid to lose what isn't mine
When it comes to you I'll never be unkind
Track Name: The Ride
We're leaving
We've worn out our own welcome
We can't stay here any longer
This place in time has seen its better days
and no, it's not a phase
For once we're really movin' on
I know our money won't last long
but hey our youth is almost gone
so we will get there

I could do
the same as Admiral Byrd did
take a North Pole expedition
and find a passage to the hollow earth
but what would that be worth
if our own sun would not be shining ?
If our lives aren't intertwining
this old raft will not be winding down the river

It does get lonely
sometimes when you are riding
out in the middle of nowhere
but we will have each other all the time
We'll go together
towards our destination

We're leaving
Our lifeboat's on the water
Time has come to cut us loose now
It's best we leave the anchor on the dock
The money's in my sock
We have no worries for the moment
I don't know if it's an omen
but the rapids have been foamin' since we boarded

We might get lucky
and stay forever searching
I doubt we'll ever accept it
but we found all we needed long ago
that is, each other
The ride, it hardly mattered
