Track Name: Black Dog
I've been searching for my black dog
I lost her in the night she was hard to see
Things got heavy when I saw the truth
Then I lost her and it cut me at the knee
A sliver in the night she was hard to see
Track Name: Rhythm and Motion
we’ve got the rhythm and we’ve got the motion
it’s been coming on lately I wanna stay inside
but we’ve got the rhythm and we’ve got the notion
if it’s coming on lately we better go outside

we’ve got the feeling
alright it’s just a feeling
but I know what I want to believe in

we’ve got the feeling
alright it’s just a feeling
but I know what I want to believe in

that we’ve got no feelings at all
we’ve got no feelings no
we’ve got no feelings at all we have no feelings now

you need someplace to go inside
don’t want to stay out until the early light
we need somewhere to stay outside
don’t want to stay in till the early light
don’t want to stay in till the early light
don’t want to stay in till the early light

we’ve got the rhythm and we’ve got the motion
it’s been coming on lately I wanna stay inside
but we’ve got the rhythm and we’ve got the notion
if it’s coming on lately we better stay outside
Track Name: So Long
feel’s like it takes so long
living like a worn out beat in a number of places
how’d it take so long
living like a worn out beat well I don’t even know how
how’d it take so long


feel’s like it takes so long
living like a worn out beat in a number of places
how’d it take so long
living like a worn out beat well I don’t even know how
Track Name: Higher Power
living fully for the acquisition is a moat
I’m forming around
feeling the highlight of the mental ray
has come and blown me out

I’ve never lived in sunlight
still wanting for a higher power
never felt the breath of the blowing grasses
left me wanting for a higher power
I’ve never lived in the warmth of living daylight
asking for the warmth of a higher power
never felt the ray of shining sunlight
still wanting for a higher power

coming quickly in the afterthought
is a word I’m turning down
as the images melt away
it hits me fast and blows me out

I’ve never lived in sunlight
still wanting for a higher power
never felt the breath of the blowing grasses
still wanting for a higher power
never ever felt that I lived in daylight
asking for warmth of a higher power
never felt the ray of shining sunlight
still wanting for the higher power

one word filling the vessel
two words breaking in halves for
one night, out of the sunlight

living fully for the acquisition is a moat
I’m forming around
feel the highlight of the mental ray
its comes fast blows me out
coming quickly in the afterthought
is a word I’m turning down
as the images burn away
it hits me fast and blows me out

I’ve never lived in sunlight
still wanting for a higher power
never felt the breath of the blowing grasses
still wanting for a higher power
never ever felt that I lived in daylight
asking for warmth of a higher power
never felt the ray of shining sunlight
still wanting for a higher power
Track Name: Ripe for the Morning
One sick dream in my soul
is ripe for the morning at once and it’s falling down
If I pick it up and I eat it at once I’ll be coming at once
I’ll be coming down

One’s enough for trouble
Two and make it double
now
I’ve got feeling enough for reason
Passion here for treason
Now

One sick dream in my soul
is ripe for the morning at once and it’s falling down
If I pick it up and I eat it at once I’ll be coming at once
I’ll be coming down

I’d bring you here in a moment
failing measured motion
now
as I round a lake of static
I’ve feeling but no accent
now

one ripe dream in my soul
is common motion
moving like an ocean
now
I’m dreaming all in static
my mind is just magnetic
it has broken
it has broken down

common range of motion
can’t explain the moving ocean
now
it’s comes in waves of static
I’m a feeling with no accent now

one ripe dream in my soul
is common motion
moving like an ocean
I’m dreaming all in static
my mind is just magnetic
it has broken
it has broken down
Track Name: No Face and No Name
Where the wash of water starts and the rocks form to the sea
Where any thought, any thought at all could be the one that sets you free
You find me in a bathrobe meeting the day
You find me escaping in a different way

Where the screams of the night fall soft we cry shattered in the day
When you decide it can't go on you buy some time and make your way

You break another window
Rip a hole in the floor
You start to crescendo
Put a hole in the door

I've got no reason why
We can't call it by a face or a name
And I don't know why
But I've got fear in my heart to take away
Take away the pain

You know I want it too
I know you want it too
