Planting Oblivion

1.
Storm clouds gathering gingerly As if alive Bring me a light Savagery leaves such damaging seeds Lost in the deep By the banks of belief They rise Swim bitterly against The sweetest goodbye Bring me a light to shine Storm clouds gathering faster than Our ghosts can hide Bring me a light Only love escapes The weight of wickedness disguised No one’s listening Anymore We got one foot out the door One foot out the door No one’s listening Anymore We got one foot out the door One foot out the door Hold on tight Hold on tight Gotta love right now Love right now We’ve gotta hold on tight Hold on tight Gotta love right now Love right now
2.
Hot golden sky My eyes cannot recognize What is this dream that we dream Warm tears on fire The weight of desire Sinking us into the deep Yearn to believe If only to pacify For emptiness There’s no reprieve Stand in the light Arms wide Receive the dark Let it fall into your heart Rapturous night Bring me strength to come alive Forgive those who can’t be consoled Cling to the vine Beloved you know it’s true You’re of Not a part of this world
3.
We can fly like broken arrows You can come with me We will go where the wind won’t follow I can carry thee We can die like blooming flowers In the arms of the sea Play the game like there’s no tomorrow Lift yourself Laugh with me In the end we’re all butterflies waiting For our turn to be Don’t be scared Don’t fear shadows baby In the end We’re all memories

Red Rose 03:44
Invisible circles dancing in the air Only where water falls Can we learn what has been sleeping there All along As time moves on Nowhere to crawl Nowhere to turn We’re all sick and unprepared For what’s to come For what’s to come What if I could stand in the sun If I could be there If I could feel that If I could care Red Rose From what grows love Will you let go To free us Red Rose From what grows love Will you let go To free us Shades of crimson and purple Swim inside my mind Like the rhythms and the rhymes of you All night All night What if I could forgive Not forget With grace At best How far we have to go We’re so alone What if my thoughts They flew white as snow And I could stand inside the sun And just be there Just be there Red Rose From what grows love Will you let go To free us Red Rose From what grows love Will you let go To free us Floods come They can change us As all things must change Sing out Smash that rain cloud With your wings out Free

Human 04:55
You don’t need to hide Let your love shine We don’t need no walls Take em all down Human All too human Human All too human We don’t need no eyes To feel the rain We don’t need no shame Human All too human Human All too human You don’t need to hide Let your love shine You don’t need no walls baby Let them fall Cause you’re Human All too human Human All too human

Lost in maybes With the falcons soaring high We were young and crazy Nobody asking why Tripping daisies Kissing stars behind your eyes Lost in maybes I just can’t get you out of my mind Wild is the wind I take you in Does it matter anymore Is it a crime Is it a sin To keep what’s yours When there’s so much love to give Why’d you push me baby You’re afraid it’s almost your time Are you lost in maybes I can’t get you out of my mind Cold wind blows clear Your fear makes the moments long You say that you’re here But it seems like you’re already gone Wild is the wind I take you in Does it matter anymore Is it a crime Is it a sin To keep what’s yours When there’s so much love to give There is not a day where I don’t see your face there Looking back at me from nowhere Each and every day I Take a breath and climb Close my eyes and sigh Am I still dreaming Cold wind blows clear Your fear makes the moments long And you say you’re here Forever near But it seems like you’re already gone It seems like you’re already gone

Happy People 03:10
It must be a dream We all got it wrong Everybody screamin’ all day long Cut me a piece Talk to the beast If you get yourself together You may live to see World spinnin’ around you baby If it’s too much to bear Play me a song Write me a rhyme Everything sounds right If it’s in time Open your hands Make strangers dance Never know when it’ll be Your last night World spinnin’ around you baby I know you just don’t care World keeps spinnin’ around you baby If it’s too much to bear Who do you want to be There’s always misery Look at Look at Those happy people Just go deep behind their eyes Pretend smiles as they lie No way to believe their own disguise Happy People Give me a line Let’s make it rain Run into the darkness No fear or shame Riddle me this Riddle me that Don’t waste no time with pointless chitchat World keeps spinnin’ around you baby I know you just don’t care Who do you want to be There’s always misery Look at Look at Those Happy People Just go deep behind their eyes Pretend smiles as they lie No way to believe their own disguise Happy People

Will there be a world When we wake up tomorrow Will there be a song Or any hope to borrow Faces are so long And words seem so hollow There are fires in the sky We’re all running out of time Can there be love In minds designed to kill Can the blackest heart Remain good still Forgive the ones that hurt They cannot bear to feel Someone hurt them once And they never learned to heal Even voices turn to dust We must learn to trust each other When spirit turns to blood We can go no further Can there be love In minds designed to kill Can the blackest heart Remain good still
