Track Name: You Should Come

Won’t ya come
to my love?
I've got some today, today

Don't ya think it's time you tasted your hard-earned luck today?

Oh (oh) Oh (oh) Oh (oh)

Oh you know
you should come
Cry for some oh-oh-oh

Oh (oh) Oh (oh) Oh (oh) Oh (oh)
Whoa-oh (oh) Whoa-oh (oh) Whoa-oh (oh)

A tender hold, oh
Come away, come away, come away
A gentle tone, oh
No, no, no,
pay no attention to your own
He doesn't know, he doesn't know, he doesn't know

You: please come
Why wait for whatcha need?
Oh, please don't leave me here today, today
Track Name: Maldives

The water’s rising—not this minute minute—
the flood is years away.

My son
 you’ll live to see it take our home.
No, don’t lose hope in great nations of earth

to come up with something that we haven’t yet heard (…come up…yeah)

The water’s eating 
sweet paradise—

the hills are leached to stone.

Today we’re living
sweet memories of home.
No, don’t run home, no, don’t pack up your things.

Someone will save you, hold on to belief
…in science…treaties…plans…

Oh, oh
Don’t cry, don’t cry
There’s time, there’s time
Love shall defend, love shall defend

The tide is taking 
the island with it

every little bit of home

I won’t be here to stop your panic so carry on
Track Name: The Current

See, see how I’m caught this way

spun in a kinetic state

Speed, speed is a mental state

one only that I create

Oh god I’ve waited for the current…

Free, free as a paperweight

still… passing through time and space

Be, be every moment made

Roam, roam in a single place

Night, night is an ether bloom

Day, day is a liquid moon

Dreaming…borne out of a mountain cave


Whoa! Broke my circle!

You stole my focus!

Whoa! Close my circle!

You thought I’d give up…didn’t you, didn’t you?

Oh, back in a blissful state
Oh, mind is an empty slate

Oh, truth is a special place
one only that I create
Track Name: The Collider

Let’s go underground
where people are making black holes
and step right into the collider
Feel the breeze of particles
as they’re dashing through, oh

Time needs no one.
Time was, is, and will.
Oh, oh

Let’s hitch to the stream
Something is taking us higher, oh
Science knows
and God surely knows
but it’s not for us to know, oh

What I need is Time to cue the end

Oh and it goes
Coming back to the light, gravitate to the light
Explode, explode
If I could steal this moment, a moment with you, yeah
Cycle back to the light, coming back to the light
Explode, explode

Time won’t stop as Time decays
Higg’s Boson waits for Time won’t stop as—

Oooo whoa…
Track Name: Flesh and Folly

All the lovers (gone, gone, gone, gone)
need each other when I'm not around
Two degrees from getting play

"Oh hon', been a week,
I can't believe you mean it.
I know everyone is waiting for you.
Just open up your door."

No, really I mean it, the streets have cleared out.
See the beaches and dance clubs—they're full of families now.
In the basement, on the roof,
the flesh and folly carry on.

"Oh hon', choose to see all the crowds of ready lovers.
I know everyone is waiting for you, just open up your door"

No-oh, no-oh

“Oh please, been a week, I can’t believe you mean it
I know everyone is waiting for your, just open up your door”

All the lovers (gone gone gone gone)
find each other when I'm not around
Track Name: Grace Jones

You’ve traveled all around
Come home, we need you now
All over Spanish Town
the starving call your name
Your geometric eyes
look on from far away

Grace Jones…

Oh, those trippin-over crowds,
they don’t … know you like we do
We watched you run around
in fields of sugarcane
Think of cousin Jonathan
The hurricane destroyed his home
Oh think of every soul, in need, all alone

Grace Jones…la da da da da da (2x)

See the lights…going down…Albert Hall
See her eyes…bulging out…appalled
Can you send some money soon?
Don’t forget your own
Grace Jones….
Grace Jones… la da da da da da (2x)
Track Name: Theme from Velvet Love

Oh, oh

Wrap up my heart, Velveteen
Make it immune, make it pristine
Tell every creep it’s for taking—
Stop them from taking—
Watch them get bold

Love velvet love velvet love, oh
Love make me up make up, velvet love

Let go, let go of the righteous cloak…
open up to silence, oh oh

Soften the blow, Velveteen
The blow from within no one can see
Swathe it in dream’s decoration—
A fine installation, a comfort for me

You bring me satiny things
I bring you whatever you need
I was sold
in your hold
I bring the comfort you need
Styrofoam and feather?
Or should I bring you leather?

Love velvet love velvet love, oh
Love make me up make up, velvet love

Let go, let go of the stilted tone
let go and let yourself be known

Uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh, uh
Sold, oh, sold
Track Name: Light Space Tourism

I've arrived in outer space
Yeah the flight was uneventful
I'm about to see the face
the face of Highest Creation
I buzz the captain: "Are we there?"
He says, "Richard, put on your visor."
I look out at crashing light—
A fanciful show!

The sun is the show to see while you're out here baby
Life at home gets old for some
I've gone through the dreams
I need an obscene vacation
Oh my—make a right—get close, oh
Soon I'll know, soon I'll know, whoa oh, whoa oh

Coming home from outer space
I see the world: a puzzle of nations
All the rich and powerful should get on a rocket ship—
one that I own!
Take a ride through the roof
of sweet sweet night, sweet sweet night
Gone gone gone gone gone gone gone
Track Name: We Are Overcome

We are overcome
Take a look—
Buried in our enterprise
Take a look—take a look—
We’ll find it when we both arrive

We are overcome

Oh yeah, uh uh uh, uh uh uh
Old shots of us—we glowed…

Oh, simple Sunday glow
We’d smoke a bowl and fuck and doze

We are overcome

Oh what happened –“Cash the check!” – along the way?
By now our lives should flow

Take a trip, take a trip,
Grab a nap along the way
fill the glass – fill it past
with emptiness, I need the space
You and I had to grow with the times
Or were you happy bored and broke?

We are overcome

Oh yeah I’ll forget, I’ll forget
Leave a note at home

Oh laughter on the road
We drove without a place to go

We are overcome

Take a look—
Buried in our enterprise
Take a look—take a look—
We’ll find it when we both arrive

We will know the shine
Cleaner than gold
All we could’ve owned
Blew the cash, blew the cash
Spent ourselves

Track Name: Glory Came Crashing Through My Hand

One touch, forehead, wet hand, blessed…

I’m gonna let the monsignor get his thrill
And then I’ll grab the silver from the sacristy, yeah yeah
Cash them in for dignity

I’m gonna drive it up above the church
and release the brakes

Glory came tonight, came crashing through my head to wrong the right, yeah

Here’s why I don’t trust in God’s love
It was lost on me, yeah yeah

I’m gonna drive it up above the church
and release the brakes
I’m gonna barrel down into the church
where no one is safe

Glory came tonight, came cashing through my head to wrong the right, yeah

“Father, thank you for coming in
Why don’t you tell us, how is it that you know this kid?”
Gimme, gimme demigod, gimme demigod

I’m gonna drive it up above the church
and release the brakes
I’m gonna barrel down into the church
where no one is safe
