Track Name: The Doctor
Whitney:

If you call the Doctor then I’m gonna
Walk out, leave you all alone
Cause I can take no more,
This is not my problem
If you call the doctor I’m never coming back, You’ve gone and made your choice
and I can watch no more, watch you slowly Turning off the light that you are

John:

Where is the Doctor, I’m sweating and my Eyes hurt, can’t even leave the floor
Won’t she come make me whole, Just this Once I promise
I’ve waited for hours one day I won’t need Her, but leaving takes its toll
Oh please don’t go, just stay, how could you Walk away from us? Is that what you want?

Whitney & John:

When I saw your face
I should have walked away
and now I’m stuck again
and now my head is full
of the lies you told
Who could I trust again
Now that I’ve turned to nothing

John:

Here comes the doctor, the last time I swear but I need a little more
and she can fix you too, anything you ask her to do

Whitney:

Here comes the doctor, I thought I could Leave here, run right out the door
and not look back again, but now it’s here I’m staying froze like water to snow

Whitney & John:

When I saw your face
I should have walked away
and now I’m stuck again
and now my head is full
of the lies you told
Who could I trust again
Now that I’ve turned to nothing

Come evaporate me now
Lift my water into clouds
Floating high above the crowd
Til’ I’m washed into the ground
I can feel it hit me now
As it fills me inside out
Every moment slowing down
Never turning back around
Track Name: Halo
A Halo
Is glowing where you go
You’re in the place you want
Got everything you want
Now you’re down and you’re ready to go

Your world’s whole
You bought yourself a brand new home
Now your work is done
Nothing else to want
Now you’re down and you’re ready to go

Come around if you’re ready to go
Stick around if you’re ready to go

And that’s when the rain came down
That’s when the rain came down
Water all around, from the clouds ‘til it hit the ground

Stay close
Watch for monsters and for ghosts
Well, the monsters scare
and the ghosts don’t care
All they want to do is float

Oh No,
Noah forgot to build the boat
He was drinking instead
Boy is his face red
Now the zoos they have to close

Come around if you’re ready to go
Stick around if you’re ready to go

And that's when the rain came down
That’s when the rain came down
Water all around, from the clouds ‘til it hit the ground

Well Baby I’m sorry
You’re wrapped up in all this craziness
The way that you wrote me,
Impossible I’m never gonna get to this


I feel like I’m drowning,
I don’t know how much longer I can hold my Breath
Is nothing left standing? Impossible. How Could it ever get to this?

That’s when the rain came down
Water all around, from the clouds ‘til it hit the ground
Track Name: I Saw My Soul at the Lake, Walking by Wearing a Snorkel and a Wetsuit
I sit from forty yards and I feel my face warm
Pull grass around my eyes and I feel my taste go
I pour myself in sand and I see my eye lids
They brighten up and dim as the falling sun hits

Out on the balcony planes hit the chimneys
I talk to the grass saying please let me die
I am sorry the water I had never hit you
Well good thing these trees seem to last for awhile

I throw some music on and the walls keep growing
We slide right through it all as our lips keep moving
We crossed the whole cross walk as we looked for nothing
I saw you on the rocks I was feeling nothing

There in my seat I knew one day this wall would fall
Branches and ridges would form in its place
They’re building up stables with wood from the rubble
You’re coming back early I saved you a place
Track Name: Broke Stop Watch
Out in the yard will you stomp your toes
and look toward the north star
Above your Eyebrows
and stab at the air with the breeze you blow
Your favorite taste that you used to know

So you want to, play the notes to
Say the words you think you have to
It surrounds you, stays inside you,
Doesn’t have to, play or say anything at all

How many miracles must come true
Got a broke stop watch that you used to use
A dog is barked on the evening news
and the gun shot didn’t come close to you

So you want to, play the notes to
Say the words you think you have to
It surrounds you, stays inside you,
Doesn’t have to, play or say anything at all

Does Everything End?

With Planets all around you
The One that you stand on will
One day be gone
and another takes its place
Another Genesis is made
Another first breath in is taken
New soul is awaken
From a lake of cloudy air
and when you breath it takes you where
Your first breath in was taken
New soul was awaken and loved
Track Name: The Center
You think it’s just game, I bet you do
As I’m following you
And thinking of your name breaks me in two
I’ve gone crazy for you

And when you’re on your steps that’s when I’ll take you
What else could I do?
But take away your breath until your blue
Tear the life from inside of you cause

I’m at the Center
I’m at the Center of it

It’s just another block or maybe two
When I’ll move into you
You should have never done those
Things you knew
Would turn me against you

Now your reflections in the knife I hold onto
That I’ll carve into you
You won’t recognize your face when I am Through
And I hope there’s a hell waiting down there For you

It’s just a little longer as you make your way
And then I’m gonna rain on your parade

I’m at the Center
I’m at the Center of it
Track Name: Water Works Cough
Into his head you go in aiming and pull the Trigger ‘til he’s dead
His head, it spills the red mess running
Into the river in his bed

And if I had My way, You’d be Mine, all Mine

Into his head you go in reaching and pull the Brains out once he’s dead
And put them up for sale and auction,
the thirty-million dollars you want to get

And if I had My way, You’d be Mine, all Mine

Now my tears are falling
the blue it hits my toes
and washes off the spit from
The Water Works you Coughed
But now my fears are turning
and the fork goes left and right
and all the dreams you weren’t in
They wrap you up this time

Into his head you go in aiming and pull the Trigger ‘til he’s dead
His head, it spills the red mess running
Into the river in his bed

And if I had My way, You’d be Mine, all Mine
Track Name: Night Trap
You swallow as it starts to bleed
Now it’s every little thing you need

I wanna rip off all that clothes you
and let my finger tips expose you
I wanna feel your kiss and hold you
and touch you deep as I control you

I wanna drain the life inside you
and feel your vein bleed as I dry you
I wanna run through the river beside you
I wanna run through the river beside you

Oh Baby it’s a Night Trap
Oh Darling it’s a Night Trap

And in the moonlight I’ll baptize you
And watch the hunger as it turns you
Into the night where light can’t hide you
Well, once alive well now you’ve died too

I wanna run through the river beside you
I wanna run through the river beside you

Oh Baby it’s a Night Trap
Oh Darling it’s a Night Trap

I wanna fill the cemetery
and dig up everything we’ve buried
I wanna pull me deep inside you
I wanna run through beside you

I wanna feel my blood inside you
I wanna feel my blood inside you

Oh Baby it’s a Night Trap
Oh Darling it’s a Night Trap

You swallow as it starts to bleed
Now it’s every little thing you need
Track Name: Mine is Mine
You call me on the phone
I’m just sitting here writing all alone
Just minding my own business
Crossing off my hit list
I swear I didn’t start this
Can You Hear This?

I found you in the grove
The one trick pony tries to tell you what he Knows
and you listen with intentness
On every single word’s hiss
You better hope you can forget this
Do you get this?

Beautiful Evil, Swallowed the People
What’s Mine is Mine, Mine is Mine


Am I free to go?
I’ve got nothing that you want
But you don’t know
You can throw me trench, see
Leave me crawling in a ditch, see
But there is nothing that can stop me
Can you hear me?

Blessed is the wolf
With no sheep's clothing there
to cover up his holes
or the teeth he likes to eat with
or the legs he likes to hunt with
You better hope you can out run this
Are you having fun yet?

Beautiful Evil, Swallowed the People
What’s Mine is Mine, Mine is Mine
Track Name: Oh, Christina
It’s Over
and little did my heart know
My love would never let go of you
And I don’t know what it is

Over
And over does my mind go
The time that I would once know with you
And I don’t know what it is

Oh, Christina

It’s Over
We’re bowing as the curtains close
My hand will never let go of you
And I don’t know what it is

Over
and over does my mind go
The kiss that I would once know with you
And I don’t know what it is

Oh, Christina
I don’t know what it is about you
Oh, Christina

It’s Over

When I first fell in love with you
I could feel it all around
and now I’m blinded without you
Feels like the crows ate my eyes through
There’s a part in this for you

When I first fell in love with you
All my insides glowed
And now I’m now wandering to find you
and now I’m dying without you
Where’s the part in this for you?

I don’t know what it is
Oh, Christina
It’s Over
We’re bowing as the curtains close
My hand will never let go of you
And I don’t know what it is
Track Name: Rain Porch
Get off your Rain Porch
Get out in the rain, Boy
It’s out there I swear, Boy
The love you could share, Boy

Get in your car, Boy
Turn your windshield wipers on, Boy
Calm down your heart, Boy
With your favorite song, Boy

Rolling down the window
You hold your sadness in
‘Til you're blowing in the wind
‘Til you're one with everything
As you drive into Night
Salt flats hide your feelings inside
You pull off to the right
And you cry until you can’t cry

You’re gonna catch cold, boy
Your umbrellas old, Boy
The moths made their home, Boy
So right now just go, Boy
You don’t need the pain, Boy
Of seeing her face, Boy
Of watching you fade, Boy
Get out in the rain, Boy

You’re out in the rain
You cover your face
You walk any old way
Away from this place

Walking down the road
Four Years after you were told
to step out and off the Rain Porch
You’re going back again
Boy, you take your first steps onto
The marble that you’re used to
You slump down in a chair
and hope that her face appears
And you cry until you can’t cry
Track Name: Light Out
I wanna play the host to you
And wander by the coast with you
and laugh at all the jokes by you
Your timing too

I wanna walk across the rope for you
A hundred miles down below for you
I hope my line it holds to you
On tight to you

Morning
Bringing
God Out
Shining
Her light out
It’s bright for you
What is singing
If Not bringing
Your light out
Is it bright enough for you?

Deep inside the cave you go
Fire lights the way and glows
The pictures on the walls that show
You’re not alone

But the images you see are false
You see the puppet masters keep you close
Wander in the cave alone
The light you’ll know

Morning
Bringing
God Out
Shining
Her light out
It’s bright for you
What is singing
If Not bringing
Your light out
Is it bright enough for you?

Get Ready
Track Name: We Sing
Call your roll
The scars on my body
You noticed

Right you are
The younger man knowing
Who you were

Wide at Last
Can open my eyes at last

Bottled up
When all that you’re thinking gets stuck
Check mate up
You’re lost in the shadows enough

We’re Not Gonna Save the World
We’re Not Gonna Get the Girl
But We Sing
We Sing
We Sing

We’re Not Gonna Win the Race
We’re Not Even Gonna Place
But We Sing
We Sing
We Sing
Track Name: If You See the Buddha
All your hair to run my hands through
All while my finger points at the Moon

I’ll find a way to fly past Neptune
All while my fingers point at the Moon

And the newspaper says
If it’s crazy what isn’t
Won’t you turn away
Well the truths what it is
And the shoe fits come wear it
While you runaway

The light that blinds you
Tries to shine through you
All while your finger points at the Moon

And the newspaper says
If it’s crazy what isn’t
Won’t you turn away
Well the truths what it is
And the shoe fits come wear it
While you runaway

All this time through
Time was telling you
Where to go, who to be
While your finger points at the Moon

I’ll find a way to fly past Neptune
All while my fingers point at the Moon
