OUR HEARTS 02:13
it began to rain the moment we took shelter and the western sun was fighting for the sky our bodies weren't big enough our bodies weren't big enough for all the hope that we had our hearts were on fire there was nothing in my head no history no waiting no memory no fate there was only one moment only one moment that we'd ever know our hearts were on fire and it burned in our bones our hearts were on fire

When you walk through a storm Hold your head up high And don't be afraid of the dark At the end of a storm There's a golden sky And the sweet silver song of a lark Walk on through the wind Walk on through the rain Though your dreams be tossed and blown Walk on, walk on With hope in your heart And you'll never walk alone You'll never walk alone

UKE SONG 03:29
JIB thank you Gary for the ukulele wrapped up all pretty  and brought over unexpectedly yesterday GARY You’re welcome baby JIB I’ve only picked it up a couple of times But you can see already how expertly I plaaaaaaay It you've only taught me these two chords and as far as I can tell they don’t work with any other songs Except for this one that I’m just making up but hey I think it’s pretty good Considering it didn’t exist 30 seconds ago and realistically I can’t play it wrong GARY that's true JIB making up a song isn’t totally unlike unwrapping a present you don’t know what you’ll find you’ve just got to cut a few strings rip through the paper open it up and take a look inside of the song, I mean Not the present or well technically I guess it’s both cuz it's a metaphor and that's what songwriting is Now we rock the chorus… JIB MARRIS What’s inside the song? Goodnight Inside the song? My girl What’s in there? What’s inside the song? Let your dreams take you All over the world Now you harmonize, Gar JIB & GARY MARRIS (con’t) What’s inside the song? Fly anywhere you Inside the song? Want to go What’s in there? What’s inside the song? I love you so What if I’m afraid to Goodnight open it my girl It might turn out wrong Let your dreams take you All over the world What’s inside the song? Fly anywhere you Inside the song? Want to go Inside the song? Inside the song? I love you so

It’s getting cold, I’m underdressed / / / I’m still not sold, on this whole mess / / / You told me - give it all away — Just trust, it will come back someday I gave my voice, I gave my time / / / Was there a choice, and was it mine? / / / I gave up every stitch I had — I gave you everything you asked.... Now nothing left except this faith — This old idea it’s gonna rain.... Do you think that the stars Are going to spend their light on you? do you think that the stars give a shit what you might do? Everybody’s naked in the woods and everybody’s trying to be good You say you have nothing left to lose that’s just a story...... and I still wanna give it all away..... I just wanna give it all away........ I still wanna give it all away......... and if the the stars won’t shed their light on you then maybe the world will give a shit what you’ve been through and if the world isn’t spinning for you i will give up myself for a little piece of [you]. billions of us all looking for love billions of eyes all fixed on the stars above anxious for the fiery finale something on which we can agree there are some things on which we can agree

I don’t want to scare you but we need to talk. It’s only fair that you know a few things about me, before we start And if you determine after learning of this little issue of mine That you need to go I won’t be surprised. You strike me as someone who’s seen quite a lot. But in my honest opinion I doubt this’ll work — like you thought. There’s something specific I need you to do — if you’re up to the task (which you don’t seem to be from the way that you’re still staring back with no change of expression) But hey — you can give it a shot. I wish I was, I wish I was I wish I wish i wish i was I wish I was, I wish I was, i wish i was afraid because... I’ve seen how people work I’ve watched them all these years They are not driven by ambition All their motors run on fear Everyone afraid of aging, dying Being lonely, missing out Terrified of moving on but scared of staying here I bared my neck to the teeth of a knife The’ve held my head under the water for minutes. I didn’t mind I’ve been blind, bound and tied at the mercy of strangers, they beat me, whatever My heart didn’t race. I was fine. I got them to hang me from terrible heights They took me to places of poverty, malice, unspeakable war, I have seen people die. They’ve left me at night in the heart of the forest, the air full of noises, the creatures that eat us just feet from my face , I did not bat an eye. I wish I was, I wish I was I wish I was afraid because I wish I was, I wish I was, afraid, afraid, I wish because.... I wish I was, I wish I was I wish I was afraid because I wish I was I wish because if you’re not scared, you’re not in love I’ve seen how people work I’ve watched them all these years They are not driven by ambition All their motors run on fear Everyone afraid of aging, dying Being lonely, missing out Terrified of moving on Scared of staying here Help me understand Fear. Will you teach me to fear?

WOLF SONG 03:55
Who’s that? Who’s there? Outside? What’s that sound? Who’s there? Hello? Is that you? Who’s that? You came back! I hear something ... at the window I hear breathing ... through the keyhole is that you dad? ... have you fin'ly come on back home ... to your fam'ly it's been so long ... since you left us all alone here ... do you expect us to remember ... what you look like I remember ... what you looked like.... you said you'd be back when that old clock struck six -- you said keep all them doors locked but that was twelve years and 9 months ago and now I'm not sure I should open the door now I'm not sure I should open the door you look a little bit ... like my father did he had hair like yours ... I remember it yours it dirty though ... for good reason you've been out there for 64 seasons you said you were out fetching dinner and though I want nothing more than to let you in there's something... in the tambour of your breathing... unfamiliar but look a little bit, like my father did you look a little bit like my father didn’t now I will devour you whole I am crunching your bones I have no conscience no remorse ... or soul just greed so feed just feed me... Who’s that? Smashing glass? Scratching - thrashing - screaming my name Twitching threatening and shaking the latch Dad is that you, are you back? you said you'd be back when that old clock struck six -- you said keep all them doors locked but that was twelve years and 9 months ago and now I'm not sure I should open the door now I'm not sure I should open the door now I'm not sure I should open the door

My baby doll Could you just go Down to the sushi bar and get me what I want You know I want a car  I want a dress I want a bag that’s big enough to fit My seven hundred friends We’re gonna need a miracle We’re gonna need a plan We’re gonna HAVE to find Someplace to go We’re out here in the water with our pockets full of sand And the sinking souls around us yelling  No… no… no! We’re gonna need a bigger Boat For all this Shit We can’t just go around pretending everyone is gonna fit I know I Told you I promised It But I have always been a liar Sorry, life’s a fucking bitch I want a castle In the country I want a loft downtown I wanna call you  When I want you But I don’t want you hanging around And while you’re out dear Get me a church dear Not some strip mall shit  I’m talking real stained glass And my believers People with class I’m gonna hang out on my alter in my golden robe and crown professing All my propaganda while they kiss my ass We’re gonna need a miracle We’re gonna need a plan We’re gonna have to find someplace to go We’re stuck here in a lifeboat with our amputated hands And our automated captain yelling Row… row… row! We’re gonna need a bigger Boat For all this Shit We can’t just go around pretending  Everyone is gonna fit I know I Told you I promised It But I have always been a liar Sorry, life’s a fucking bitch What’s with the storm over- Head? All those white caps? I’m Feeling my wishes sink Back under water. My Dreamboat is crumbling All ‘round my bed and I Think I just watched all my Treasure chests floating Away with the circus you Made from the bones of my Husband and children and Now that the water is Up to my petticoat I am beginning to Wonder how likely it Is that I’ll float with my Wrists bound with jewelry Body of corsetry Shining brass livery From my head to my feet...... We’re gonna need a bigger Boat For all this Shit We can’t just go around pretending  Everyone is gonna fit I know I Told you I promised It But I have always been a liar Sorry, life’s a bitch A bigger Boat For all this Fish We’re gonna murder all the oceans With a fucked up wish I know I Told you I promised It But I was lying when I promised And I’ve always been a liar you’re not getting on this boat So fucking Live With It

OLD SULTAN 03:23
Oh, I’m so sorry today Is the day Please don’t look at me That way You can put all of your body’s weight onto me You've been A loyal friend But everything comes to an end Now you won’t eat and your eyes are blind but you’ll still be with us on the other… Side. . . On the other Side. . . On the other Side. . . We’ll still dance with you your body of vapor and light We’ll always remember you In our prayers At the end of the night This just can’t be the end I believe we’ll meet again And I pray you’re leaping Into the sky And howling at the shadows On the other Side. . . On the other Side. . . On the other Side. . . On the other Side. . . On the other Side. . . On the other Side. . . You can let go You can go Why won’t you leave me alone? You can let go You can go Why won’t you leave me alone?

BOX SONG 06:16
Box on a desk Next to a castle of glass They bought from the airport The price on the back Shelves overflow With photographs and bones A museum of someone Who will never be known Pennies for thoughts That cost a mountain of debt Rusting in bottles They’ll never come to collect They’ll never come to collect And you were sure that you could keep it all Off in a tower where there’d always be space And you were sure that if you read it all You would eventually come across your own name Daffodils hanging off a rearview of lies You keep your foot on the pedal And you can’t see outside Boxes of novels Fill all the seats and the trunk There’s barely room for a driver In this treasure chest of junk And the tower is crumbling And you are thinking of running From all these years of commitment To keep this dead garden growing To keep this dead garden growing And you were sure that you could learn it all And if you did than you would always be safe And you were sure that you could use it all To build a fortress they could never take It’s got to be around here somewhere Maybe you’re really going mad Maybe it’s buried in the old school Maybe you never really- And now you’re starting look  Like someone in a book You’ve tucked yourself inside  Your body pressed and dried Fairies and princes And the story doesn’t change He keeps slaying the dragon She’s still chained to the cage And it’s time to retire  But you can’t give up the title As the head of collections For these dead letter files For these dead letter files And you were sure that you could keep it all locked And all the dark things would never get lit And you were sure that you could keep them out And you were sure that you could keep yourself hid It’s got to be around here somewhere Maybe it’s under mom and dad Maybe you wrote it in your diary Maybe you never really- It’s got to be around here somewhere Maybe you Gave it to your son Maybe it’s time you just admit that Maybe the only choice you have Is passing it on... Everything you have And everything you’ve done Is being passed on

Death is not the end For I'll see you again Maybe not the way we intend But know this is not the end Death is not the end For we will feel each other again Though I can’t say where or when I know this is not the end Now go and do your Sleepless dreaming Sign your contracts Do your healing And everything That might have been If there is desire Can be again ‘Cause death is not the end Death is not the end My loving friend There are ways we might love again Perhaps not in the very same way it's always been And I know this is not what i’ve always been told ‘Cause I still feel you above All around and below And I’d trade all the knowledge In my damn eternal soul For one more touch But today this is enough My friend That I know death is not the end I know death is not the end Yes I know death is not the end
