"Everything Flows"


See you get older every year
But you don't change
Or I don't notice you changing
I think about it every day
But only for a little while
And then a feeling

I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know
I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know

The wind's blowing in my face
Lately found it hard to keep the pace
And I'm looking for a place to go
But only for a little while
And then a feeling

I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know
I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know

 

"Catholic Education"

You wanna turn your back on everything
You wanna turn your back on everyone
Well I try

You wanna turn your back on everything
You wanna turn your back on everyone
Well I try

Buh buh buhdaa...
Buh buh buhdaa...
Buh buh buhdaa...
Buh buh buhdaa...



"Too Involved"

You never talk about it
If it's too involved
You don't wanna know
Let it go
Let it go

And in the morning sun
Everything is fine
And it's alright
Till you open your eyes
Open your eyes

You're thinking about yourself
Thinking about your life
Thinking about your wealth
But you're just nothing
You're just nothing

You never talk about it
If it's too involved
You don't wanna know
Let it go
Let it go

And in the morning sun
Everything is fine
And it's alright
Till you open your eyes
Open your eyes



"Don't Need A Drum"

I don't need a drum, to make a song
When I want to speak, I open my mouth
If you don't want to listen, I don't care
I still disturb the air when I want to

Everything I say don't mean a thing
But who cares what I'm saying anyway
You're too busy grieving anyway
I still disturb the air when I want to

I don't need a drum, to make a song
When I want to speak, I open my mouth
If you don't want to listen, I don't care
I've still disturbed the air when I want to



"Critical Mass"

When I touched your skin
I felt your heart beating deep within
And I was sure
Everything was fine

You're in my heart
But it's the feeling that all fell apart
Think of me; but don't believe that I was wrong.

When I switched off my feeling is when I lost control
Couldn't say what I was needing -
Something I didn't know

I woke up in bed
A cold sweat running down my head
And I remembered something you had said:
(You Said) "Don't dream too long, 'cuz when you wake up everybody's gone."
Find someone else to sing another song.

When I switched off my feelings is when I lost control
Couldn't say what I was needing -
Something I didn't know
When I switched off my feeling is when I lost control
Couldn't say what I was needing -
Something I didn't know



"Heavy Metal II"

[Instrumental]


"Catholic Education 2"

You wanna turn your back on everything
You wanna turn your back on everyone
Well I try

You wanna turn your back on everything
You wanna turn your back on everyone
Well I try



"Eternal Light"

Fear begin to turn around
I guess if everyone listens
There's no one left to fight.

In your heart someone's there
I'm sixty years old
With nothing left to say.

Why does it really prove
When you ? away
Seems the message is
Gotta serve the sun

Now you don't know
When to listen or just let it go
Then I don't suppose
That you chose to walk a straight road
Then you'll never know

And I don't suppose
That you chose to walk a straight road
Then you'll never know

Why does it really prove
When you ? away
Seems the message is
Gotta serve the sun



"Every Picture I Paint"

See her lying in my bed
My pillow stuffed beneath her head
Her hair is like a sea of gold
I'd love to say it her
Kiss her lips, they're wet with spit
It's more a flavor, taste like wine
Sticking something cold inside
Those eyes leave goosebumps on my spine

You're very presence turns me dear
It takes a hundred thousand colors to paint you
And every picture that I paint doesn't capture you

You're very presence turns me dear
It takes a hundred thousand colors to paint you
And every picture that I paint doesn't capture you

See her lying in my bed
My pillow stuffed beneath her head
Her hair is like a sea of gold
I'd love to say it her
Kiss her lips, they're wet with spit
It's more a flavor, taste like wine
Sticking something cold inside
Those eyes leave goosebumps on my spine

You're very presence turns me dear
It takes a hundred thousand colors to paint you
And every picture that I paint doesn't capture you

You're very presence turns me dear
It takes a hundred thousand colors to paint you
And every picture that I paint doesn't capture you

You're very presence turns me dear
It takes a hundred thousand colors to paint you
And every picture that I paint doesn't capture you

You're very presence turns me dear
It takes a hundred thousand colors to paint you
And every picture that I paint doesn't capture you



"Everybody's Fool"

You impress me with your style
I think you're really cool
Everbody looks at you
'Cause you're everybody's fool

I don't fuckin' care (I don't fuckin' care)
What clothes you wear (What clothes you wear)
You're still fucking square

You say you've taken lots of drugs
You really must be hip
But you'll never get to know yourself
When you're underneath your drip

I don't fuckin' care (I don't fuckin' care)
How you wear your hair (How you wear your hair)
You're still fucking square

And I'm laughing at you all the time
And I'm laughing at you all the time
And I'm laughing at you all the time
And I'm laughing at you all the time
