Track Name: Black & Golden
when i'm alone and by myself, i see the white snow and the green grass

these times are different they're not the same, but it feels alright yeah it feels okay

dreamy seasons passing without meaning i'm thinking of the way it used to be

everything is new now that i'm with you and you're with me



it's a new year a new day to walk straight and keep on making love

i see color in my mind and they not there all the time, you i make them shine

guess i'll hold it in my bones it's coming through my skin

guess i'll hold it in my bones, guess i'll hold it in my skin


black & golden
Track Name: Turtle Brain
hey turtle brain, sparrow eyes, purple haze
you came like a wave into a desert praying for rain

i think i loved you too much, but maybe i just didn't love me enough
we could have done a lot better but now looking back it's kinda hard to remember

hey turtle brain, sparrow eyes, purple haze
you came like a wave into a desert praying for rain

i know you're down by the river you're like the sun the earth you're a killer
some people call you insane but i know it's just that you've got a turtle brain

hey turtle brain, sparrow eyes, purple haze
you came like a wave into a desert praying for rain

you're lightning, i'm thunder, you are the forest & i am the hunter
you're beat up, i'm beat under, you were the tooth when i was the hunger

hey turtle brain, sparrow eyes, purple haze
you came like a wave into a desert praying for rain

yeah well i fucked up i was a volcano bound to erupt
now you know i'm better equipped but it's too little too late & it don't mean shit

hey turtle brain, sparrow eyes, purple haze
you came like a wave into a desert praying for rain

hey turtle brain, sparrow eyes, purple haze
you came like a wave into a desert praying for rain
Track Name: Let It Be Told
and i said, let it be told
you got so much soul
you got so much soul

i know you got soul

i don't believe in luck i believe in magic
but i wanted to take i ride on a dragon
i don't want to wait to celebrate until shit gets tragic
i wanna wake up everyday and be laughing


i don't believe in love that's everlasting
i don't believe that time is just for passing
i don't wanna spend the rest of my life in plastic (traffic)
i want to wake up everyday and be laughin
Track Name: Warrior
i am a warrior
i'm not gonna worry anymore

as long as my hair is growing
as long as my Self i'm knowing
as long as my heart is open
then into the truth i'm going
we came here to melt what's frozen
we came here to mend what's broken
yeah into the truth i'm going

i cut through the lines they made
at home in the light & shade
i'm at home in the darkest cave
so with fire is how i play
i told myself i'd be brave
so with fire is how i play

i let my pain be mine
i let my darkness shine
i let all my darkness out
i have taken the warriors vow
i draw my chest to my chin
i let all the love come into
my bones my blood my skin
i let it begin
Track Name: Automobile Blues
it's the end of the age of the automobile but i just wanna drive
when i die i'll be keeping it real but now i'm still alive

she said she'd go anywhere in my car with me
i wanna listen to the radio instead of watching tv
i'm a man that's what i am, unfortunately
the only thing i know how to do is remove myself from society
but i know that's not the way, but that's just how i feel today

it's the end of the age of the automobile but i just wanna drive
when i die i'll be keeping it real but now i'm still alive

driving around with the windows down dream a little dream of me
i moved back to the same damn town cause i don't wanna be free
i'm a man that's what i am, at least i'm trying to be
i miss you like the sun miss the moon but ain't that the way it's supposed to be
but i know that's not the way, but i hope it works out some day

it's the end of the age of the automobile but i just wanna drive
when i die i'll be keeping it real but now i'm still alive
Track Name: No More Secrets
we can't keep no secrets no more
you can keep playing the game but i stopped keeping score
because the fight that was on in my mind was taking my life
the lies i was telling myself just ain't right
somebody else might take the bait
but i'm not gonna bite
yeah i fell but i'm gonna pick myself up off the floor

we can't keep no secrets no more
cause everything i wanna say, somebody already said before
my mind is open like a window but my heart's open like a door
we can't keep no secrets no more

we can't keep no secrets no more
i wanna be like jesus but i'm afraid of being poor
& i've been being afraid so long & waiting til i was sure
yeah i've been being afraid so long & waiting til i was pure
so i went to see the doctor & i think i've found the cure
we can't keep no secrets no more

my friend ben told me
that this year everyone's gonna stop lying
& my friend edwin told me
that it's time to stop being a dog & start being a lion
so i guess that i'll just keep on trying
Track Name: Saturn Returns
don't know what i'm gonna do today,
wanna light a fire across the milky way
wanna lay down my thoughts on a page & keep the fire burning
don't know what i'm gonna do next year
almost lost myself in a place of fear
gonna make my heart & my mind so clear & keep my back from turning

cause saturn's coming to the place it was when i was born
saturn's coming to the place it was when i was born

don't know how to say my dreams out loud
feeling like a baby feeling like a cloud
always tryin'a make my momma proud & keep my spirit yearning
dont' know how i'm gonna make it work
fucking around feeling like a jerk
gonna love myself til it doesn't hurt & keep on with my learning
Track Name: Broken Glass
i wanna travel, i wanna chill
my mind tends to rattle but i need to be still
need to be still, watch the sun comb up the sky
and i open up my third eye

this life is broken glass, broken glass reassembled
there are so many paths, many pasts make me tremble

sometimes i live in the city, sometimes i live on the hill
sometimes my heart feels empty, but i gotta know how to fill
fill it with love instead of filling it with fear
and i hope that the difference is clear

this life is broken glass, broken glass reassembled
there are so many paths, many pasts make me tremble

gotta go outside in the sunshine, go outside in the rain
gotta be alive for the good times, be alive for the pain
because the pain is part of growing up
it's the same half-full half-empty cup

this life is broken glass, broken glass reassembled
there are so many paths, many pasts make me tremble
Track Name: Only Child
i'm on my own again, i'm on my own
& i feel i've found a new home,
yes i feel i've found a new home all alone

sparks are flying from my hand
don't i feel like the man that i am
light was shining, now it's gone
sometimes it's hard just to feel at home
feel at home in the soul

time is scary & time is weird
& sometimes i just wanna disappear
but i'm right here

so i turn to my friends & i turn to my lover
cause i ain't got no sisters & i ain't got no brothers
i'm an only child
always looking for the smiles
& we're all in the same place at the same time
& don't it make you feel like crying
