Track Name: Enter The Gates
Ladies and gents, against the fence please
And in a single file line so not to get trampled
The man with the blue shades can be your example
There are to be no cell phones, firearms,
And no flash photography
No soliciting, no diving, and no full frontal lobotomies
And most importantly,
This is a high class ordeal so act accordingly
If you follow these rules and follow them strictly
You'll all get inside more soon than quickly
Track Name: the 1st of John's 48 dreams
I had a dream that I went home
Saw people that I knew but they weren't
People that I know
A familiar voice, it said to me
Who is God, and what is a god anyway

And I said God is love and that's all
Take what you get from it
Cause all you'll get is what you take

I had a dream that I went away from home again
And things were so different
Much like they were before
A familiar voice, it said to me
How do you keep so upbeat in down-tempo world

I had a dream, but it was just a dream
Track Name: Crawling
I know everything about you
But I know nothing at all
I know I could live without you
But it's what I know that makes me wrong

I think I'm crawling in love with you
But I know nothing at all
I think I'm crawling in love with you
I have to crawl so I don't fall

I gave you nothing when I first met you
I think I barely caught your name
I think I left you the first time I made love to you
As soon as you turned the other way

I think I'm crawling in love with you
But I know nothing at all
I think I'm crawling in love with you
I have to crawl so I don't fall

.....But I'll fall in bed with you
Track Name: This Bird
This bird outside my window
Got startled from a deep deep sleep
By a noise down the street
Of a cat in heat

She fluttered her wings
And her name was Joanne
