Track Name: Born Sinners
Oh come ye mystic, open your eyes, blackened from the sun,
And take my hand, we're headin' where the ones like us do run.

Get down in the middle, born sinner, before you say goodbye.

Well Mary Might, and Mary May got caught between the seams,
We sold our love for appetite and starved our boldest dreams.

Get down in the middle, born sinner, before you say goodbye.

Maybe we could all convene together,
Lay your burdens, baby, down forever,
We'll be sinners in their eyes no matter,
We can hold the night in our back pockets, our back pockets.

I fully recognize that I am not the same,
But when they push me to that line, I'd rather die than change.

Get down in the middle, born sinner, before you say goodbye.

Maybe we could all convene together,
Lay your burdens, baby, down forever,
We'll be sinners in their eyes no matter,
We can hold the night in our back pockets, our back pockets.

I'll wait for you.
Track Name: Lucy's Lullaby
Lucy Lu, can't you see that it is you?
I don't wanna wait for a sunny day, let's take off in the morning rain,
Lucy Lu.
Don't dare sleep, there's so much for your eyes to meet,
Keep on rockin' till the days are done, we're headin' out West where it all was won,
Don't you dare sleep.
I'm sorry to say I forgot the wine, but we can pick it from the vine,
Sun-kissed baby in the California sun, come on baby our worries aren't done!
Run with me.
San Francisco or bust, just another city to feed our lust,
Berlin Winter, Tokyo Spring, lord only knows what the summer will bring!
Long as it brings you, my Lucy, Lucy Lu.
Track Name: Carnival
Will I ever go down when I feel like it?
Will I forget ya?
Will she ever know how I feel?
Will she ever know?
We can sail the carnival, love.
Track Name: Regular Kid
Well your body's covered up,
But your mind is as naked as the wind.
And it's hard just to start up,
This conversation of the place I'm in.

Some people well they struggle all their lives,
Just to untie the ties.
That bind them from the things they truly love,
You know what I'm thinkin' of.

Like the unassembled parts,
I have found in my backyard by the maple.
It belonged to someone years ago,
And now it will end up dustin' in my desk table.

Some people well they struggle all their lives,
Just to untie the ties.
That bind them to the things they truly love,
You know what I'm thinkin' of.
Track Name: Raise Your Guns
Raise your guns, to the man I was
Take your time, take your time.
Raise your eyes, to the love inside
I don't know, if I could ever love.
If I find you waiting,
I will come, take you home
With me.
We will burn, that flame,
In my bon fire.
Out my backdoor, in the yard, and watch the stars.
And we will say,
What we've learned of
The things we've burned
And burn them too,
It's still me and you.
Track Name: Do You Feel Love? (acoustic original)
What can I say I think I love you,
More than you recognize,
When you look in my eyes,
Do you feel love?
I walk you home to your apartment,
Down the hill,
It gives me chills,
To say goodnight but you,
Do you feel love?

I'm just, waiting, for you
And I'm, saving, my love true.

Maybe the rain will bring it's showers,
And sun, will fill, the air,
It'll be like you are here,
And we'll feel love.
Track Name: The Body Knows
Oh, sometimes I feel like I am the one
To take your body in the morning sun
And let it go in the drained up mud
And I will follow, I will follow
Cause it's kind of upside down sometimes
And I'm tryin' hard to make things right
In my mind I'm thinkin', in my heart I'm feelin'
I'm a selfish man for the view I'm stealin' of you.

Don't know where I'm starting, I don't mind
I've got a view of other sides
And I get lost with the feeling
Where am I going, where am I?

I'll sing you a song of faraway places
Cause all is in peril if your thoughts are in stasis
And I wanna take you down to New Orleans town
This fall, this fall.

Don't know where I'm starting, I don't mind
Though I had this feeling that I can't find
I wanna take you through the line
The line to the other side of light.

Of light.

Track Name: Late Summer Nights in a Childhood Kitchen
When the needle,
Hits the groves,
I hear New Orleans stoves,
Cookin' up something good,
Like the night I stood,
In the Kitchen as you cleaned,
And we spoke of the Harlem scene,
And San Francisco dreams.
