Keep The Blue Skies

here's the plan:
i'll become a different man
change my hair
change my heart
and change the air

build a bridge in my mind
to cross the river blind
walk among those with eyes
and keep the blue skies
keep the blue skies

look at our hands
held together with rubber bands
we'll go without
but we'll make through the shadowlands

i won't beg for your map
and you'll evade my trap
and we'll both become spies
and keep the blue skies
keep the blue skies keep the blue skies

(solo)

you're in disguise
i'm seeing spots before my eyes
we'll go within
trade apologies for skin

and we'll both sing along
to some unwritten song
and we won't act surprised
keep the blue skies keep the blue skies
keep the blue skies keep the blue skies

 

Sing It Once Again

I'm not what you'd call unhappy
but I will never be fulfilled
I have tried to understand this
although I probably never will

I see you standing in the corner
I see you walking through the hall
I can't tell exactly where it came from
but I swear I heard a voice that called

it's the same old song
and we sing along
but if it comes out wrong
just sing it once again

people searching in the darkness  
sliding hands against the wall
fumbling to find the light switch
when it was never there at all

I see you laughing in the corner
I see you watching from above
I can't tell exactly where it came from
but I swear I heard the word "LOVE"

it's the same old song
and we sing along
but if it comes out wrong
just sing it once again

 

Ways & Means

You don't know a thing about it
On your feet and you're ready to run
Try to speak but you can only shout it
Grit your teeth and you grab your gun
 
Somebody told me bout the ways and means
Never understood a word they said
What's the point in trying to fight all your dreams
When everything you see is inside your head

Ever clear is the picture I see
Oh so near is the sky above
None shall pass lest they feel your anger
Tougher than your mother's love

Somebody told me bout the ways and means
Never understood a word they said
What's the point in trying to fight all your dreams
When everything you see is inside your head

 

The Talking Tree

the talking tree never talks to me

I walk by every day,
he just looks the other way
doesn't have a thing to say

but as things go it's still the status quo

if it's meant to be
maybe he'll see me
and enjoy my company

the talking tree never talks to me
