Track Name: Tiger's Mask
Put on your Tiger's mask
Go out and make a mess
You've got permission baby
To do your best

... Take off your comfortable shoes
Put on someone else's blues
Move through the jungle of innocents
and find yourself the weak ones

You've got control of the gathering of fools
drink from the river and sharpen your tools
and even though this idiot might dare to ask
No one knows who you are when you're wearing a Tiger's Mask

Ask the goat sitting next to you to buy you a drink
touch his leg, make him hope
and then show him your teeth

Hold up his broken body
so everyone can see
The wild queen and the Shattered King
and let them hear you sing

I've got control of this gathering of fools
I drank from the river and I sharpened all my tools
and even though this idiot dared to ask
none of you will ever know whose wearing this Tiger's Mask

Light a fire with that look in your eyes
Let them see you in your stolen space of surprise
Dart through the innocents with someone else's blues
and find yourself the weak ones and carve them with your tools
and the blood will fly
and the blood will fly
and the fools will die
and the fools will die
and your power will be a fact
and don't worry, don't you worry
no one's ever gonna know
no one ever sees the tears when you're
wearing a Tigers Mask
Track Name: I Don't Think So
have i ever told you
just what i'm thinking
have i ever told you
just what i'm feeling

i don't think so
no, no, no i don't think so

have i ever told you
just where the sun sets
have i ever told you
just how the night rests

i don't think so
no, no, no i don't think so

there's certain things i keep to myself
i don't have to tell no one else

have i ever told you
just how sweet her lips are
have i ever told you
about my cuban cigar baby

i don't think so
no, no, no i don't think so

have i ever told you
how the trees can talk
have i ever told you
that the door remains unlocked

i don't think so
no, no, no i don't think so

there's certain things i keep to myself
i don't have to tell no one else

have i ever told you
that i'm part of the sky
have i ever told you
that i learned how to fly

i don't think so
no, no, no i don't think so

there's certain things i keep to myself
i don't have to tell no one else

there's certain things i keep to myself
i don't have to tell no one else

there's certain things i keep to myself
i don't have to tell no one else
Track Name: Ezra
I tried to help but you just refused
You tried to win but you could only lose
Yea there aint no roads
... that you've been shown
Ya there aint no roads
that you been shown

So go ahead Ezra
Lay your head upon the stone

the stone can bring you life
the stone can set you free
granite quartz or alabaster
it's the earth beneath your feet
ya there aint no water for seeds and your plants
they never grow
ya there aint no water for seeds and your plants
they never grow

So go ahead Ezra
Lay your head upon the stone

I see you on the Cross
dripping blood
I see the Angels they're waiting for the flood
there's always voices
when you're alone
there's always voices
when you're alone

So go ahead Ezra
Lay your head upon the stone
So go ahead SWEET Ezra
Lay your head upon the stone

So go ahead Ezra
Lay your head upon the stone
So go ahead SWEET Ezra
Lay your head upon the stone
Track Name: Break It Down
Some people stopped moving
Some friends left early
Why am I sick to my stomach
How can I possibly be so high
Broken bats and splintered singles
Deep wounds and pain
Fifteen days of sunshine
And then forty days of rain

Oh but won't you just for me break it down, break it down

Splash around in the water
'Til it's up to your knees
Dance around in the slaughter
And then make yourself a king
Broken homes and dying lovers
Children born and crying mothers
Whisper something, whisper nothing
Tiny secrets under cover

Oh but won't you just for me break it down, break it down

I'm a raven in the trees
I'm the honey for the bees
I'm the tongue of a song
That's been messin' with your thong
I've got my eyes on you
I've got my eyes on you
I've got my sound on you
I need sound from you

Oh but won't you just for me break it down, break it down
Track Name: Into A Dream
Sunday morning brings cold through my window sill
Take me with you so I can see what you've seen
And together we can be what we've never been
...
And together we can roll in a dream
Silver Dancing Crimson
Green moving blue

CHORUS
Let me into a dream
with you
Let me into a dream with you

Broken down cars piled up in an old junkyard
Take the moment be a part of what you do
The years pass by and all we have is where we've been

Open your door baby
let me pass through
Silver Dancin Crimson
Green moving blue

CHORUS Let me into a dream...

(Instrument break)

Baby believe me I'm good at what I do
Give me a chance I'm layin down tonight with you

Watch me dance
Watch me sway
Baby watch me move

Open your door baby
Feel something new
Silver dancing crimson
Green moving blue

CHORUS Let me into a dream...
