The Race 03:16
Will she fall away? Will she crawl away? Will she wander when she wakes up far from yonder Will the ribbon fall away? Will it fall away? Will it fall away? Well they’re off again The will leaves the head behind And it’s all uphill In the race between the mind and the will. Here she makes her home Here she stakes her own Here she charges her way through fifty rows of barges Here she’ll never be alone. Well they’re off again The will leaves the head behind And it’s all uphill In the race between the mind and the will. Tired feet keep walking... Tired legs keep running... Tired feet keep walking... Propelling the body on

You, the boy of scattered wants of hidden needs and fantasies You’ve got a lot to live up to to be a man, yet to yourself be true I, the girl who wants to love you can’t comprehend why you’re split in two Maybe we can be friends someday but honestly I feel betrayed ’Cause first you want one thing Then you say you want it all And you are not my valentine Can’t make your mind up to be mine And you can’t have it both ways! What did you say just yesterday? Did you admit that you are scared? I don’t intend to smother you but I know what I want, are you prepared? No one said it would be easy Maybe I expect too much too soon butI have insecurities too and I am not afraid of you But first you want one thing Then you seem to want it all And you are not my valentine... Can’t make your mind up to be mine.... And you can’t have it both ways!

Spotted animal, you are, Spotted jaguar, you are Fearless creature, you are, Fearless jaguar, you are Spotted animal, you are, Spotted jaguar, you are I name you my soul companion Fearless creature, you are, Fearless jaguar, you are I name you my soul companion (CHORUS) Though I am just a child And you are a house cat One day I’ll be a warrior and I’ll need you to guide me My speech is of a child Emotion unguarded I dream of being powerful And a feline to guide me It’s not a proper prayer For I am just a child It’s not a proper It’s speech for those whose hearts are heated! Spotted animal, you are, Spotted jaguar, you are I name you my soul companion Fearless creature, you are, Fearless jaguar, you are I name you my soul companion One day I’ll be a warrior and I’ll need you to guide me I dream of being powerful And a feline to guide me CHORUS your ears and eyes, your muscle and speed you ruthless defense of family your beauty your instinct my senses don’t compare CHORUS

You Haul 04:14
Restless days the trees bow with blossom the wind is soft, the front door is wide open. Afterschool buzzing in my head..... buzz, buzz, buzz (CHORUS:) You haul, you haul, you haul You haul, you haul, you haul You haul, you haul, you haul You haul, you haul, you haul Orange and Gray, I remember that day truck parked in the driveway he’s up and gone, headed for the highway He left her with me..... Left her with me (CHORUS)

Wreck My Tea 03:21
A spoon for every knife A bowl for every plate A pat of butter for the daily bread A starched white cloth for the table Cream and sugar to make it right And ladyfingers clutching tight Napkin folded neatly by the fork Clear, clean water in my cup You yank-- and dishes fly A silver spoon chimes glass as it cracks in midair My eyes like saucers as you smile and say, “I don’t want to wreck your tea. I don't want to wreck your tea.” Flower propped brightly in the vase Candles set in perfect symmetry You yank-- and dishes fly A silver spoon chimes glass as it cracks in midair The cloth held fast in your hand drags the floor with the crumbs that tumble from my mouth My eyes like saucers as you smile and say, “I don’t want to wreck your tea, I don’t want to crash your party, I don’t want to ruin your life, I don't want to wreck your tea.” A spoon for every knife A bowl for every plate A pat of butter for the daily bread A starched white cloth for the table Cream and sugar to make it right And ladyfingers clutching tight

Superglue 04:22
A thousand pieces put together A thousand pieces fall apart Ever-changing like the weather Healing and breaking like the heart Matter always tends to chaos After you put things into place Scattered and gathered the puzzle pieces Shattered and glued the priceless vase Like-dust, like time, like-money, like love like-sores, like teeth, like-sand, like seas like-pain, like joy, like-sin, like sex like-sleep, like death If entropy Could be stalled with superglue Could keep your world from breaking down With superglue A million pieces come together A million pieces blow apart Lucky stars jettison downward Then realign, a brand new start Matter always tends to chaos After you put things into place Scattered and gathered the puzzle pieces Shattered and glued the priceless vase Like-dust, like time, like-money, like love like-sores, like teeth, like-sand, like seas like-pain, like joy, like-sin, like sex like-sleep, like death, like-luck, like dreams

Transport 01:56
I waited by the bus stop I waited in the parking lot Waited by the car Waited in the bar Waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport How long can you stay Standing there You look so honest All impressed and half-undressed And waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport waiting to transport I’m waiting to transport

Magnetized 06:14
Carved out of your pillow Carved out of the thing you know so well Back to front fitted neatly Back to front fitted neat we tightly gel That night Iwas looking That night I was looking for your belt Joined helpless by our opposing forces Charged up with a tension A charge only touching you can quell Magnetized (you and I) Pried apart by the morning Pried apart by the talons of the day Feel every ion Feel every ion charged your way Pulled helpless by our attactive forces ) To return to the the neutral To return to the natural restful state Magnetized (you and I)
