Track Name: The Tangerine Tears of a Tunisian Liar
To give and receive
then mystery proceeds
to shine
in a most unusual way

It seems of a dream
this chateau and scene
define
memory and style

But oh...

Your an human being
so say what you mean
inside
your own peculiar way

Still somewhere between
a memory and a dream
resides
something undefined

But sometimes
you're unavailable
and somehow
you're on fire
in someways
it's unassailable
and some days
I'm a liar

The meaning of night
reinvented with a word
still holding onto what
you once found pure
but I and I'm just a feeling
but in case you're not so sure
if there's a K on the end
or of the realms of the absurd

The past isn't here
and tomorrow's unclear
so ride
what is here and now

So what is it you've heard
outside of the words
don't hide
the feelings on your tongue

But sometimes
you're unavailable
and somehow
you're on fire
in someways
it's unassailable
and some days
I'm a liar

And sometimes
you're unavailable
and somehow
you're on fire
in someways
it's unassailable
and some days
I'm a liar
Track Name: Into the Blue
You want something permanent
you want something pure
but the symbols on the back of your mind
well they're not so sure

Hey hey, atrocity's in motion
but love still unfolds
and the lonely dream that distance avails
leaves nothing to hold

Into the blue
into the blue...

You say you need certainty
you need to be whole
still these signals that roar thru the night
just can't be controlled

Hey hey, everything's expanding
the bad and the good
and the silver tongues that strive to define
they would if they could

Into the blue
into the blue...

Well, it's no shame
and the rain's coming down again
of these castles and spires
and the realms of our desire

Into the blue
into the blue

Well you're looking for energy
you're looking to score
and the neon lights that flash past your eyes
you've been here before

Hey hey, this motion is coursing
thru me and thru you
and because the rain comes down time to time
just do what you do

Into the blue
into the blue
into the blue
into the blue...
