Track Name: The Race
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
Track Name: Not My Valentine
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!
Track Name: Speech for Heated Hearts (The Jaguar Song)
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
Track Name: You Haul
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)
Track Name: Wreck My 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

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
Track Name: Superglue
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
Track Name: Transport
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
Track Name: Magnetized
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)
