Track Name: Miracle Garden
MIRACLE GARDEN
You have tried to get there
Without here
Spineless flower that's already plucked From the earth
Far below
Roots cradle the corpse
Still breathing
You've buried all these ugly things And now they're seeds
You've buried all these ugly things All these ugly things
This is miracle garden This is where it begins This is miracle garden This is where it begins
Forged a silver lining And danced for no rain You never stop searching For ways to get clear
And burnt up by the sun
From the shadow of rubble and womb The child left too soon
You're rushing out this fragile thing Before it's grieved
You're rushing out this fragile thing Out this fragile thing
This is miracle garden
This is where it begins
This is miracle garden Yielding nightmare and dream This is miracle garden
This is where it begins
This is miracle garden Yielding nightmare and dream
In a cauldron
In a dark room
Feed it our trust
Feed it our gloom
All we need now is more blood All we need is a heart, love

Track Name: My Boomerang
MY BOOMERANG
She is always there waiting For you to fall
Woeful doctor
Always on call
And I'll be the one who will gather them all All the lost
All the weak
All the ones far too small
Chorus:
I made my day
I made my boomerang You can pay with pain But it never goes away
I do not need and I do not want A past that's a future
A stick fetched by dog
But still they keep coming
And still I concede
And I don't remember what matters to me
(Repeat Chorus)
(It never leaves when it finds you there) (Tying up phone lines)
Don't cry to your mother She's not your wound
Don't blame it on your father He's not the fool
Doesn't matter what I bleed
Towers swing right back to me Doesn't matter what I scream
Kill the bird and air still sings, darling
I don't want to go back to you Don't you ever come back to me
It will come back, come back, come back to you
Until you're not home

Track Name: Black In America
BLACK IN AMERICA
Strange this fruit
Hanging by a feeling
Dangled by an infant nation
Oh, it's a shame
What is this scale weighing my riot heart I want to feel the laughter
I want to run on land that holds my feet And know that I am home
Brother, will you let me down?
Father, will you let me down?
Sister, will you let me down?
You better let me down
(Who are you)
If I raise my antenna to the sky I'll go out of my mind
To be with you
Black in America Black in America
With their little machines I see them killing you
I see them kill
I'll take you in
I will take you in
I will raise my antenna to the sky I will go out of my mind
To be with you
Black in America (Who are you) Black in America (Who are you)

Track Name: Charm
CHARM
I battled in the courts
I tried to make it work this time
I needed you stand
To stand and be my alibi
If you think that I was wrong
Well I pleaded what I needed
And if my words somehow got lost Well my heart did surely feel it
The third break is the charmed one And all of the shards move on
The third break is the charmed one And all of the shards move on
I knew that it would end
And you would find another coast With someone not as mad
In pictures he could smile and pose I guess it's better now
That you finally defeated
The thing that held you down From flying straight to Venus
The third break is the charmed one And all of the shards move on
The third break is the charmed one Even the devil sings a redemption song
The devil sings bye
Even the devil is singing bye

Track Name: Out Fell The Spider
Out Fell The Spider
After the magic show
The shadow sent fear to my home I knew that I was not alone
I reached for my overcoat
And out the spider fell
An old enemy of mine
Has remained nameless throughout time Until the spider fell
"I did not kill the fireflies," it said.
"And we make 10 long legs when we're aligned."
How can you get me through the castle doors?
Weaver can you make me a stranger?
I want to dance with the illusion maker
Weaver can you make me a fashion?
I'll drive my dagger through the heart of danger

Track Name: The Gatekeeper
Gatekeeper
Last chance
Before I go away
Say the words
That will make me stay Last chance
Will you end this reign This may be
The end of our days
Maybe if we wanted Something new Something new Maybe if we wanted Something new Something new
We'd turn it all around Turn it all around Turn it all around Turn it all around
Gates keep
Our home out of view Turn to dust
That will get us through Last chance
Make it count
Pull me close
So I can't get out
Maybe if we told ourselves truth We tell the truth
All our lies and lives now
Wait to hear
Waiting for us
To turn it all around Turn it all around Turn it all around Turn it all around
Say the magic words Tell the keeper
Let the needle fall Say the magic words Tell the keeper
Let the needle fall
Say magic words
Say magic words
Keeper, let the needle fall
