1. Nice To Know You - (4:42)
(Hey! hey!)
Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons
better than witnessing newborn nebulas in bloom
she who sees from up high smiles and surely sings
prospective pries her once weighty eyes and it gives you wings

I haven't felt the way I feel today
In so long it's hard for me to specify
I'm beginning to notice
how much this feels like a waking limb
pins and needles, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
to know you

Deeper than the deepest Coustou would ever go
and higher than the heights of what we often think we know
blessed is she who clearly sees the wood for the trees
to obtain a birds eye is to turn a blizzard to a breeze

I haven't felt the way I feel today
In so long it's hard for me to specify
I'm beginning to notice
how much this feels like a waking limb
pins and needles, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
to know you

Could it be that it has been there all along?

I haven't felt the way I feel today
In so long it's hard for me to specify
I'm beginning to notice
how much this feels like a waking limb
pins and needles, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
good-bye, nice to know you
to know you
2. Circles - (4:11)
You saw me lost in treading water
I looked pathetic and as helpless as a stinger without a bee
but underneath my presentation, yeah
I knew the walls were coming down
and the stones that fell were aiming away from me

Hey, what would it mean to you?
(what would it mean to you?)
to know that it'll come back around again
hey, whatever it means to you
(whatever it means to you)
know that everything moves in circles, yeah

I saw you standing in my headlights, blink blink blink
I thought I'd run you down for the weight you left on me
but then I pressed rewind, reversed and drove away
and see you, disappear in my rearview
brought to me the word reciprocity

Hey, what would it mean to you?
(what would it mean to you?)
to know that it'll come back around again
hey, whatever it means to you
(whatever it means to you)
know that everything moves in circles, yeah

Round and round we go
who could've known it'd end so well?
we fall on and we fall off
existential carousel

Hey, what would it mean to you?
(what would it mean to you?)
to know that it'll come back around again
hey, whatever it means to you
(whatever it means to you)
know that everything moves in circles, yeah
oh, everything moves in circles

Round and round and round
and round and round and round
and round and round and round!
3. Wish You Were Here - (3:33)
(Woo!)
I dig my toes into the sand
the ocean looks like a thousand diamonds
strewn across a blue blanket
I lean against the wind
pretend that I am weightless
and in this moment I am happy, happy

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here

I lay my head onto the sand
the sky resembles a backlit canopy
with holes punched in it
I'm counting UFO's
I signal them with my lighter
and in this moment I am happy, happy

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here

The world's a roller coaster
and I am not strapped in
maybe I should hold with care
but my hands are busy in the air
I say
I wish you were here
I wish you were
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
wish you were here
4. Just A Phase - (5:30)
(Oooooh) (x9)
I am bottled fizzy water
and you were shaking me up
you are a fingernail running down
the chalkboard I thought I left in third grade
now my only consolation
is that this could not last forever
even though you're singing and thinking
how well you've got it made

Who are you?
when will you be through?
yeah, it's just a phase 
it will be over soon
yeah, it's just a phase
yeah, it's just a... phase

Call it women's intuition
but I think I'm on to something here
temporaryism has been the black plague 
and the Jesus of our age
I know that I sound opinionated
maybe biased and quite possibly jaded
but sooner than later they'll be
throwing quarters at you on the stage

Who are you?
when will you be through?
yeah, it's just a phase 
it will be over soon
yeah, it's just a... phase
and I am waiting for it to be over too
(yeah, oooooh) (x7)
5. 11 am - (4:13)
7 am
the garbage truck beeps as it backs up
and I start my day thinking about what Iíve thrown away
could I push rewind?
all the credits rolled in signifying the end
but I missed the best part
could we please go back to the start?
forgive my indecision

Then again, then again, then again
you're always first when no one's on your side, but
then again, then again, then again
the day will come when I want off that ride

11 am
by now you would think that I would be up
but my bed sheets shade the heated choices I made
what did I find?
I never thought I could want someone so much
cause now you're not here
and I'm knee deep in my own fear
forgive my indecision
I am only a man

Then again, then again, then again
you're always first when no one's on your side, but
then again, then again, again, again, then again
the day will come when I want off that ride

12 pm and my dusty telephone rings
heavy head up from my pillow, who could it be?
I hope its you, there, oooooh, oooooh

Then again, then again, then again
you're always first when no one's on your side, but
then again, then again, again, again, then again
the day has come, and I want off that ride
6. Blood On The Ground - (4:34)
I don't wanna talk to you anymore
I'm afraid of what I might say
I bite my tongue every time you come around
Cause blood in my mouth beats blood on the ground

Hand over my heart I swear
I've tried everything I could within all my power
2 weeks and 1 hour
I slaved and now I've got nothing to show
oh if only you've grown taller than a brick wall
from now on, gonna start holding my breath
when you come around and you flex that fake grin
cause something inside me has said more than twice
that breathing this air beats breathing you at all

I don't wanna talk to you anymore
I'm afraid of what I might say
I bite my tongue every time you come around
Cause blood in my mouth beats blood on the ground

Hand over my mouth
I'm earning the right to my silence
in quiet discerning between ego and timing
good judgment is once again proving to me
that it's still worth its weight in gold
from now on I'm gonna be so much more weary
when you start to speak and my warm blood starts to boil
seeing you is like pulling teeth
and hearing your voice is like chewing tin foil

I don't wanna talk to you anymore
I'm afraid of what I might say
I bite my tongue every time you come around
Cause blood in my mouth beats blood on the ground

I'm fast to a better judgment
by saying less today
I will gain more, gain more
no tears to you my, my fickle friend, yeah
you you you you, you brought the art of silent war

I don't wanna talk to you anymore
I'm afraid of what I might say
I bite my tongue every time you come around
Cause blood in my mouth beats blood on the ground
7. Mexico - (4:20)
You could see me reaching
so why couldn't you have met me halfway
you could see me bleeding
but you could not put pressure on the wound

You only think about yourself
you only think about yourself
you better bend before I go
on the first train to Mexico

You could see me breathing
but you still kept your hand over my mouth
you could feel me seething
but you just turned your nose up in the air

You only think about yourself
you only think about yourself
you better bend before I go
on the first train to Mexico

You only think about yourself
you only think about yourself
you better bend before I go
on the first train to Mexico
8. Warning - (4:40)
Bat your eyes girl
be otherworldly
count your blessings
seduce a stranger
what's so wrong with
being happy?
kudos to those who
see through sickness, yeah

Over and over and
over and over and oooh

When she woke in the morning
she knew that her life had passed her by
and she called out a warning
don't ever let life pass you by

I suggest we
learn to love ourselves
before it's made illegal
when will we learn (when will we learn)
when will we change (when will we change)
just in time to see it all come down

Those left standing will make millions
writing books on ways it should have been

When she woke in the morning
she knew that her life had passed her by
and she called out a warning (warning)
don't ever let life pass you by

Floating in this cosmic jacuzzi
we are like frogs oblivious
to the water starting to boil
no one flinches, we all float face down

When she woke in the morning
she knew that her life had passed her by
and she called out a warning (warning)
don't ever let life pass you by
pass you by, oooooh
oooooh, oooooh, oooooh
9. Echo - (3:33)
There's something about the look in your eyes
something I noticed when the light was just right
it reminded me twice that I was alive
and it reminded me that you're so worth the fight

My biggest fear will be the rescue of me
strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear?
something I've not seen
something infinitely interesting
could you show me dear?
something I've not seen
something infinitely interesting

There's something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
more subtle than something someone contrives
your movements echo that I have seen the real thing

Your biggest fear will be the rescue of you
strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear?
something I've not seen
something infinitely interesting
could you show me dear?
something I've not seen
something infinitely interesting
10. Have You Ever - (3:14)
To get up and walk away
will be too easy
so stay and stand your ground
just watch your mouth with me
on the back of every right
there's a wrong looming
so here you and I should tread assault
as these razorblades for boots will it be

Have you ever tried to step in my shoes?
have you ever tried to balance that beam?
and if you ever try to fit in my shoes
they'll never be quite as soft as they seem

Unabashed honesty
would be ideal
but a prophet did once say
that honesty's our only word
so where do we go from here?
abandon ship now
my problem is you made me melt
and I don't want to be frozen anymore

Have you ever tried to step in my shoes?
have you ever tried to balance that beam?
and if you ever try to fit in my shoes
they'll never be quite as soft as they seem

(Oooh, oooh, oh, no)

Have you ever
have you ever tried to
I have never
I have never tried to

Have you ever tried to step in my shoes?
have you ever tried to balance that beam?
and if you ever try to fit in my shoes
they'll never be quite as soft as they seem
11. Are You In - (4:23)
It's so much better
when everyone is in
are you in?
it's so much better
when everyone is in
are you in?
oooooh, oooooh
are you in?
yooouuu, ooooh
are you in?

It's so much better
when everyone is in
are you in?
it's so much easier
when sea foam green is in fashion
yooouuu, oooooh
are you in?
yooouuu, oooooh
are you in?
are you

(Are you) (x31)
(oooh oooh ooh) (x3)

Yooouuu, ooooh
are you in?
yooouuu, ooooh
12. Under My Umbrella - (3:31)
When I close my eyes
I can see for miles
there's comfort in my dark seat
and chaos in the aisles

These eyes are not your eyes
and these eyes are not the color that
your arid eyes might be
no I was not around
when those eyes of yours decided so
I refuse to kneel before the sights you choose to see

When I close my eyes
I remember why I smile
under my umbrella
I'm an accomplished exile

These eyes are not your eyes
and these eyes are not the color that
your arid eyes might be
no I was not around
when those eyes of yours decided so
I refuse to kneel before the sights you choose to see

If this is right, I'd rather be wrong
if this is sight, I'd rather be blind

These eyes are not your eyes
and these eyes are not the color that
your arid eyes might be, no
no I was not around
when those eyes of yours decided so
I refuse to kneel before the sights you choose to see

If this is right, I'd rather be wrong
if this is sight, I'd rather be blind
13. Aqueous Transmission - (7:46)
I'm floating down a river
oars freed from their holes long ago
lying face up on the floor
of my vessel
I marvel at the stars
and feel my heart overflow

Further down the river
further down the river
further down the river
further down the river

Two weeks without my lover
I'm in this boat alone
floating down a river named emotion
will I make it back to shore?
or drift into the unknown

Further down the river
further down the river
further down the river
further down the river

I'm building an antenna
transmissions will be sent
when I am through
maybe we can meet again
further down the river
and share what we both discovered
then revel in the view

Further down the river
further down the river
further down the river
further down the river

I'm floating down a river (x8)
