Track Name: Halo
Come on into the Halo. There’s another side to being alive. Deep in the forest there’s a moonglow. Out in the desert there’s a rainbow. I was like you, full of sorrow. Didn’t believe in tomorrow. There’s another side to being alive. Come on into the Halo.
Track Name: That's The Way The World Used To Work
Here’s a song about a long time ago
Everything was changing
It was just plants and animals, really
Everything was changing

That’s the way the world used to work
Before we took the pieces of the pie
It was always a bit of a circus
But I never saw an elephant cry

And now we’re missing somebody
Someone used to be here and now he’s gone

There was always a problem in the forest
But I can’t find the forest anymore
I remember when I used to be a star
That’s not my problem anymore

And now we’re missing somebody
Someone used to be here and now he’s gone

That’s a song about a long time ago
Everything was changing
It was just really plants and animals
Everything was changing
Track Name: River
When we used to walk along the river, we would take a look into the water.
Tried to understand what we were seeing, we are going down to touch the water
We were talking early in the morning, I could see the children while they’re sleeping.
There’s a boat that doesn’t touch the water, carries all the people cross the river.
If we’re ever floating down the river, we will take a look at all the people.
Try to understand what we are seeing, will this be the day we touch the water.
Track Name: Trees Are People Too
If you go to the part of the woods where the sensitive foliage lie, listen hard in the heart of the woods. You will hear an unusual cry. Trees are people too. We look at the sun every day of the year. We never cry or shed a tear. We need water just like you do. We’re people too. And when we are bad, we punish ourselves. We don’t need help from you. We’re people too. We have problems just like you do. We’re people too. And when night falls, we stand under the stars and move.
Track Name: The Magician
I’m a magician. I won’t keep you waiting. I’ve got memories that disappear. Waiting. Sit on the sofa. That’s a very funny sounding word. I am intuitive. I’m a musician. I won’t keep you waiting. I’ve got lots of things on my mind. Don’t you remember that I’m just an outsider.
Track Name: I Remember The Night
I remember the night
I remember it well
I remember how my breathing felt
(repeat)
My brother was in his room, I was in mine
I was doing my homework, it was almost his bedtime.
I remember the night . . .

When mom said “Boys, come into the living room,”
Me and your Daddy’s got something to tell you.”
I remember the night . . .

When the telling was done, noone said a thing.
My brother looked at me, I didn’t look at him.

I walked out of that room
with my eyes on the floor.
I went into my room and shut that door.
Track Name: Do You Want To Dance?
Do you want to dance?
Do you want to fly around the room with me?
Do you want to cry?
Do you want to bury your head on my shoulder?

I am tired of meaningless things.
I am tired of being alone.

Do you want to walk?
Do you want to put your feet down on the ground?
Do you want to fly?
Open up your arms and let the wind take over.

I am tired of meaningless things.
I am tired of being alone.
Track Name: Subtle Flagellating Pulse Baby In A Christian Fabric Memory Dress
Subtle flagellating pulse baby in a Christian fabric memory dress
Pointing at the profits with a finger stuttering finger

Employed by a man named ploy
And you’re still swill swallowing numbers
Making a music connection

Doppelgangers funk and then I’m supposed to laugh
With the planks of the four ships in Donald’s bathtub
Crying like broken homunculi?
Track Name: Baby
Baby what have you done
You have looked at everyone
They all look just the same
It’s me you’re wanting to blame

Baby I’m on your side
I have seen how you tried
When you are ready to run
It’s me you’ll be running from

Instrumental (short)

Baby let’s go outside
Let your eyes open wide
I will forgive what you do
This song I sing, I sing it for you
Track Name: Empty Room
Don’t make no difference
What you are given

Don’t make no difference
What you are given

An empty store is an empty store
An empty room is an empty room

An empty store is an empty store
An empty room is an empty room

Don’t make no difference
What you’ve been given

An empty sky is an empty sky
An empty eye is an empty eye

An empty hand is an empty hand
An empty man is an empty man

Don’t make no difference
What you’ve been given
Track Name: Hamfest
By the time I got to Hamfest
I was feeling kind of down
The groovy people that I know
Had already left that town.

Fred Astaire had followed me
That twisted astronaut
His mother was a poet
And he liked her work a lot.

So me and Fred and Ginger
Made the helicopter scene
Ginger’s into real estate
And plays the tambourine

Me I play the trumpet
Just like Emperor Hirohito
I try to play the book I read
But I never play rapido.
Track Name: The Party's Over
The party’s over but I can’t stop dancing
Everybody’s left but I’m not alone
Why are you sad, I can’t stop laughing.
The party’s over the money’s gone.

The ship is sinking but the fish are friendly
And I been thinking that I don’t like fish.
Where are you going, maybe I’ll go with you
I never thought that it would end like this.

The chandelier is falling off the ceiling
But I look better when I'm in the dark.
Nothing is made to last forever.
Everything's made to fall apart.

There’s something coming on the blue horizon
There's someone waving on the empty sea
I hope that they didn't mind that I wasn't dancing.
I hope that they'll remember how it used to be.

There's something coming on the blue horizon . . .
Track Name: Thanks
Thanks for spending time
As the days go rolling by
You are still with me.
Thanks.

I have always felt
That I needed some extra help
You put up with me.
Thanks.

When I was young
I was taught to tell someone
Now I’m telling you.
Thanks.
