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 ℗ & © 2017 Ahmond

My Boomerang 04:03
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 ℗ & © 2017 Ahmond

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) ℗ & © 2017 Ahmond

Charm 03:32
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 ℗ & © 2017 Ahmond

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 ℗ & © 2017 Ahmond

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 ℗ & © 2017 Ahmond
