Track Name: DEATH&TAXE$/Ooh La La Dream
Listen close.
I sold my soul for this one.
Just dream and dream always,
For in this life all else is death and taxes.

Ooh la la.
Track Name: HOPE for a new year
It's not two separate things, it's one
I got upset about the gun to my head
You got upset because you can't shoot me dead
It's not two separate things, it's one

No, it's not two separate things, it's one
You distance yourself because I won't let you fly
You're so far away and I can't understand why
It's not two separate things, it's one

I've cried so many tears over a period of some odd years
Some of the times I've walked it off for a mile
And other times I've acted out like a child
But I've been worn to the bone

Yeah, I've been worn to the bone
My threads have unraveled slow
Sitting here pondering the thief in the night
How everything goes wrong before one thing goes right
How I felt so alone in a world of blind sight
But if there was no god then who turned out the lights
And once again, I fell down and cried.

It's not two separate things, it's one
I'm ready for a new year.
Track Name: Loch Ness Lover
I have no need for a Loch Ness Lover
But you look so majestic for five seconds in the shadow
I have no need for a Loch Ness Lover
All it took was one glance, and I had to get another

It just doesn't seem fair
Your like a fairy tale I can never touch
My Loch Ness Lover

Your beauty is something rare I've never seen before
I can't move, I can't move
I'm frozen in time at the moment I first saw you

Why should I even care?
You're most likely just my mind playin' tricks on me
If this is a dream
I'll just turn my weary back on reality
My Loch Ness Lover

I have no need for a Loch Ness Lover
But I have no grief with a Loch Ness Lover
Track Name: DESERT RAIN||||||||||||
Mother nature nurses me
Her presents always near
Why else would I bear the heat
Waiting for this time of year

Waiting for the desert rain
Come on people time to feel the healing powers of the desert rain

Cool, cool, cool water
If we repeat this mantra while we dance,
The sun will never put us in a trance
The rain is coming

Mother nature curses me
Fills me full of fear
Dehydration's setting in
If life is short the end is always near

Waiting for the desert rain
Can't you smell it in the air? It's here and there
The essence of a desert rain

(backwards solo to the "ooohs")
Track Name: Sun Trance
Saw an old friend today
And asked him if he was doing fine
Said that he'd lost his way
While searching for the meaning in it all

That's when I turned to him and said:
Staring into the light sometimes may strain your eyes
If direction never comes then moving on
Is exactly wherever you're facing
Don't be afraid of the dark in the night
For every moment of darkness there's a moment of light

Told a close friend today
Ambition comes and goes with age
The future looks so unclear
It sometimes scares the hell out of me

That's when she turned to me and said:
Staring into the light sometimes may hurt your eyes
If reflection brings you down then look away
Because you're living as long as you're dreaming
Don't be afraid of the dark in the night
For every moment of darkness there's a moment of light
Yes, every moment of darkness has its moment of light
Track Name: A Waltz (Down Memory Ln.)
I remember that night, I remember it well
I got so blushed, and the moon got so pale
You left your scarf in the seat of my van
I just can't help but believe that was planned

Yeah, what's the point in winning if you can't show your hand?
Girl, you're trouble
And you're dangerous
Oh, silly me, what a silly thing to think you wouldn't get your way

I told you something I could never repeat
You simply replied with a kiss on the cheek
And when I got home you showed up at my door
It must've been about a quarter to four

Yeah, you must've apologized ten times or more
And I didn't let you in
No I didn't let you in
Because you're trouble
And you're dangerous
Oh, silly me, what a silly mistake to let you walk away
Track Name: WATERLOO ROOFTOP
If the city's got you down'
And you're friends are not around
I'm not far, just the other side of town

If things haven't turned out right
And you're blinded by the light
There's a place, you can see the stars at night

Far away from the sssssscity sssssstatic
Standing clear of the noisy racket
Far away from the sssssscity sssssstatic
Far away from the static

If I say that I love you
And you say you love me too
Then this place could be our Waterloo Sunset
Come and join me on my roof
Track Name: Vampyre Queen
Don't you live in darkness, you vampyre queen?
What would happen if I shed some light upon your scene?
Would you burn in the sunshine?
Would you burn in the sunshine?

You vampyre queen, you vampyre queen
You drink and drink, drink and drink
You're a monster

Rise up from your coffin, you vampyre queen
Don't you know the moon is full and the underground's waiting?
How do you put on your makeup
When you're not in the mirror?

The way you drink and drink
You're like a super villain
Oh, you're sucking all the blood
Right out the vein of your society

Would you burn in the sunshine?
Would you burn in the sunshine?
You're a monster
Track Name: blacksheep (HOPE at the end of the rainblow)
When it rains, it pours
And I'm in a shit storm
Since I've gotten older
I don't lay my head on your shoulder
No more, no more,
I can't even keep my own house warm
Momma, rain me down some mercy
These tears just make me dirty
Remember when you'd tuck me in
And I'd fall fast asleep

With all my love,
Your little black sheep


(really, the house on the cover is at the end of the rainblow)
