Halo (free) 02:57
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.

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

River 04:21
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.
5.
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.

The Magician 03:09
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.

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.
8.
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.
9.
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?

Baby 02:18
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

Empty Room 04:02
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

Hamfest 03:39
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.
13.
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 . . .

Thanks 02:17
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.
