Track Name: Schlumbergera (Christmas Cactus)
You've been driving 'round in circles
Trying to drive that pain away
Watching raindrops on your windshield
Chase each others' trails

The old spider in your doorway
Is mending her broken web
So the lucky fly will see a new day
Missing just one leg


So if tears are for assholes
Come on be an asshole just for once
Just don't be alone
Welcome
Home

The Christmas Cactus you left outside to drown
Is getting ready to decay
While the basil on your kitchen table
Has gone thirsty for twelve days

So if tears are for assholes
Come on be an asshole just for once
Just don't be alone
Well

If tears are for assholes
Go on be an asshole just for once
Just don't be alone
Well
Track Name: Night
Night
Fill my lungs
Life unsung
'cause my chest is tight

Skin
Don't fail me
Latterly
Feeling paperthin

Although I have stayed
inside my house all day
I feel as lost and errant
As a newborn stray

Moon
Fill my cup
Bottoms up
Watch me stumblin' out my room

Feet
Don't fail me
Carry me
Down familiar streets

Knowing my friend
Doesn't live here anymore
I'll leave a candle burning
By the unmarked door

Stars
Fill my eyes
Tears of ice
To repel the morning light

Knees
Fail me now
Cold wind soughs
A song through the trees

Don't leave me here
Silent bright and clear
Carry me on dark wings
Where my loved one sings
Track Name: trOOth
trOOth
why is how
where is now
and when is here
To lose control
Find the time
Search your soul
And face your fear
Maybe young
But Surely wise
I have tried all of the above
And for love
I have cried
And advertised
I will follow only you
Who will show
All I know
About nothing at all
I will grow
I will shrink
I will rise
And I will fall
I will sink
I will swim
Will be her
I will be him
Where their eyes meet
faithfully
Where their eyes meet
Is where they will seek
Is where they will see

Electric light's
Projecting giants
On the white walls of my mind
The age-old wild
Is set on fire
For the cold cage
Where I C me hide
In this game
In the name
Of the myriads faces of the
Same old shame
Pray may I
Be no more
Fuel for war
Fool for more

trOOth
Spill my wine
Save my swine
From pearls I threw
Up and through
Drunken mind
May you find your way and shine
'Coz their's a light
There's a child
Everybody's trying to hide
But when we dare
To let it out
Is when we share
Is how we see
Why all is free
Track Name: To See The Sun
You run the knife
Across your arm
To keep your nerves
From doing you harm

The wine of life
Tastes too familiar
You long to serve
Some spirit higher

You want it so bad
It makes you so sad
You'd rather go mad than take your time

But don't you worry
Don't have to hurry
It's way too early to see the sun

Who was the thug
who broke your heart
Who's starring back
from all the shards

Behind the smoke
And a locked door
A truth has spoken
Don't you knock here no more

You say you're sorry
About your story
So what can I do about it now?

Why are you so uptight
If you know you're right
You'll see it glow bright
Don't ask me how

You want it so bad
It makes you so sad
You'd rather go mad than take your time

But don't you worry
Don't have to hurry
It's way too early to see the sun
