Skipping Robin calmly playing Blind or unaware On the grass without a care Softly swaying willow; Bending down he grabs his feast The softest prize between his beaks Why’s it wrong? How could he know? But it’s still too much to let him go Now the wind is falling, From the branches calling As an only warning Cutting through the morning Up above him leering Though he still can’t hear him It’s no surprise when The arrow strikes him in the eye Resounding with a muted cry His body falls down crashing The scene before him flashing Still he can’t imagine How they let this happen And as he comes down near him Sparrow can see him bleeding There will be no arrest He drops his knee onto his chest His blood the color of his breast His dying song: What have you done? Your arrow took another one

Sitting around in quiet bliss Unweathered and without a sound The pitter-patter and passing trains Of seasons going ‘round Summer days now fade away And I’m behind them crawling Is it the end when all the leaves are falling? Mexican Train and Pick-Up Sticks Helping the hours by A broken branch in front of my door The victim of Autumn’s cry Summer days now fade away And I’m behind them crawling Is it the end when all the leaves are falling? Walking around this desert town The soles of my feet now frozen and weak As the ice from the sky caresses my eye The cold from within now cracking my skin Fingers and hands feeling battered and bruised The new season starts feeling old and used Summer days now fade away And I’m behind them crawling Is it the end when all the leaves are falling?

I’ve never been frightened of aging ‘Cause aging never meant growing old But now that daylight is rapidly fading And the night seems dark and cold Though the mind is a thing of wonder It’s the body that keeps it at bay Now as my body gets weaker and weaker I feel my mind slowly going astray Hold, hold me down ‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore Young hearts are accustomed to breaking They mend with water and time Now the hours in my glass, they are tumbling The well is dry and the sand is too fine Hold, hold me down ‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore These hands, they were made for building They built the dam and the well That kept us alive and helped us to thrive ‘Till the sound of the tolling bell Now the mortar is cracked and failing The stones, they are weakened and frayed Soon the trickle will turn to flowing And the river will dance me away Hold, hold me down ‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore From this bed I hear all of you crying And though it hurts, I don’t want you to stay Because the truth is I’m frightened of dying And I don’t want to be lifted away Hold, hold me down ‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore

Hey babe, give it a rest It’s starting to weigh both of us down Hey babe, don’t obsess Let’s pack up and get out of town Hey babe, just let it go I said that I’m here ‘till the end Hey babe, we’ll go with the flow Believe me it’s not us, it’s them There’s no need to determine direction Just as long as we’re sure of the path A path that can lead to reflection That can make us laugh Hey babe, you know it’s absurd We can’t sort things out using words Hey babe, what’s the fuss? You know it’s just us being us Sometimes it may feel like defection But we’re really just finding some space A space for our own resurrection For our saving grace Walking in this hall of mirrors shows me what we’ve become As the pulse of each step shakes the past like the beat of the drum And I know that it’s because I’m alone that I feel so confused But that’s when, behind the glass, I catch a glimpse of you Sometimes it may feel like defection But we’re really just finding some space A space for our own resurrection For our saving grace

Thank you and goodnight It’s time to shut the lights Even though we must go There is always tomorrow Play a song Say a word Sing along Raise a hand Make a vow Bite your lip Take a bow Thank you and goodnight It’s time to shut the lights Even though we must go There is always tomorrow Fake a smile Keep things light For a while If that’s ok At least for now Sell your shit And take a bow Thank you and goodnight It’s time to shut the lights Even though we must go There is always tomorrow All the bitterness rotting my head I don’t mean to pester, but I don’t want to beg If this is my winter the snow is my bed Say, is something wrong? Thank you and goodnight It’s time to shut the lights Even though we must go There is always tomorrow

A wish is as good as a prayer And a glance, as good as a stare If words fall on deaf ears And eyes no longer care Why is it so that I can’t let you go? It gets harder the harder I try All signs of resolve just seem to dissolve With each part of you I descry Why can’t I find a way away from your arms? Why can’t I stay away from your harm? Why can’t I find a way away from your arms? Why can’t I stay away? When you were a rose all I touched was your thorns When you were a beast all I felt was your horn I needed it cool, you needed to yearn I needed your breath, you needed to burn The toxic perfumes of our passion consumed Leave me breathless and gasping for air The more I push away, the more you want to stay To cradle me in my despair To feel your kiss is to feel your scorn To hear your voice is to hear your roar The loss of your touch is a loss that I mourn But I wanted this and you wanted more Now I don’t know why, with each passage I try I just end up closer to you And as I string along this here chaplet of songs It draws you into me to

Turn around and look at me I’ve been yours for all these years Take my hand to cover your ears As I walk away you won’t hear me leave For you, for me, for a love that couldn’t be For the eyes of my weeping Mary Through these eyes I see Through all your layers I tried to tear But I don’t have it in me to tear anymore With your Cyprian ways I no longer care And I’d better stop tearing before I reach your core For the fallen Lord in the arms of his whore In the arms of his weeping Mary In these arms I hold Twenty miles west of Rusk in Southern Cherokee Is a shrine to those who have found and lost For all those years they wished to be free See they never measured what freedom would cost For those, it is true, who still carry the cross For the poor souls of Weeping Mary To each a cross to bear

It’s one thing being happy or feeling complete But where’s all the passion we were feeling last week I know we just met, but I’m walking away ‘Cause if love ain’t perfection, then why should I stay? I know what I’ve seen; it seems so obscene Lovers holding hands in the park For now it seems rough but I know I’m better off Crying alone in the dark I might regret you But I’ll probably forget you If not today, then tomorrow, and for the rest of my life

If you plant a seed, Then stand and watch it grow Nothing changes As the roots take hold below So before it’s too late Set yourself up for a different fate Put your knee on the ground Hold it close. Turn it around You gotta love from the start It’s the most important part Eye to eye, heart to heart, If you don’t, things fall apart You gotta love from the start Keep the horse before the cart Eye to eye, heart to heart, You gotta love from the start You start to walk And everything feels too slow But you don’t start running ‘Cause you’re too caught up in the flow So before it’s too late Set yourself up for a different fate Put your foot on the ground Find your stride. Turn it around You gotta love from the start It’s the most important part Eye to eye, heart to heart, If you don’t, things fall apart You gotta love from the start Keep the horse before the cart Eye to eye, heart to heart, You gotta love from the start You touch her hand And your whole heart starts to glow You keep it cool ‘Cause you don’t want to let it show So before it’s too late Set yourself up for a different fate Put your knee on the ground Hold her close. Turn it around You gotta love from the start It’s the most important part Eye to eye, heart to heart, If you don’t, things fall apart You gotta love from the start Keep the horse before the cart Eye to eye, heart to heart, You gotta love from the start
