Blue Chair Lyrics

Mrs X

Poor Mrs X
She’s in a fix
Her smiles so tight
She has no lips
Her mind is so fast
The worlds a blur
And pretty soon
She’ll have no hair

Mrs X will always smile and hope that it will end in a while

Poor Mrs X
She has no eyes
So she can’t see all her lies
Her legs are gone
So she can’t run and pretty soon
She will be done

Mrs X will always …

Don’t cry for Mrs X, don’t you cry for Mrs X, don’t cry for Mrs X

Poor Mrs X
She has no ears
To hear her screams
From all those years
Her legs are gone
So she can’t run
And pretty soon
She will be done

Mrs X will always …


Keystone Effect

Too much of nothing and everything between us-she said x2
Those lines, Tie us together no matter how many times you try

You know when you look out in the distance and you hope they’ll end up together
Those lines are there but blur when you get real close
Really appear together, moving in the same direction Yet so separate

Too much of nothing …

Struggling to know someone who doesn’t want to know
Screaming for togetherness met with his silent contempt
Never can cut you off she needs your rejection

Searching for a different hue in a palette of white
Clamouring to be distinct though essentially alike
We run and operate like those horizon lines

Too much of nothing …


Arkitect of Perfektion

My comfort is here
Tucked under layers of reciprocity
Leering eye revealed imperceptibly
Ill conceived watched life

This veiled illusion which surrounds impedes surrounds impedes all movement
A self inflicted wound swept aside so easily

Mass media appeal Public performance Pounded out
Flocks of ignorance unaware
Follow the arkitect of perfektion

This veiled illusion …

Nihilistic knowledge naked
Truths adhered to -never tested
Uneasy comfort in this murky clarity

This veiled illusion …


Blue Chair

She sits in a little blue chair
Thinks of things that once were
Fingers float over images as the past dances round  
fingers flow over images as the past dances round
With a quiet contentment she smiles and says  
She smiles and says
I’m not afraid of myself

Stories flicker within those eyes
Of paths torn through her heart
Fingers float over images as the past dances round  
fingers float over images as the past dances around
Daylight drifts through her shadows  
She smiles and says
I’m not afraid of myself

Cause it’s the curve of your soul,  the curve of your soul,  the curve of your soul

She sits in a little blue chair
Life draws the day round her
Fingers float over images as the past dances round  
fingers float over images as the past dances round
With a quiet contentment she smiles and says
She smiles and says
I’m not afraid of myself

She sits in a little blue chair


The Indonesian Song

As wind whirls through the palms and cross my flesh
I open still closed eyes
Stirred from sleep to the rush of thoughts
And these are the sounds of life

Children laughing, roosters crow, the slip of oar to fish
Grumble of distant motors, certain rush of waves
And your breath beside me

Wails of bikes and horns and kids, laughing cards and wings, lyric bantor back and forth and forth and back again
And your breath beside me

As wind whirls through…

Hammers banging, pots are clanging, spit of new spun web, raucous beat of click clack , spinning in that wind
And your breath beside me

Bounce of wheels attached to carts, drip of worn out swing, arms weave the knot, chirp of whipping blades and your breath beside me

As wind whirls through…


True

Clear my soul for me
Into fear is getting me
Clear my soul for me
Fear of getting into me

I see all of me out there
Feel me
How tiring it has been
Tiring it has been

Take care hear them out
Before we come out
Where is me
Really

Clear my soul for me…

Don’t sing it, say it, do it
Can’t live
Can’t be true to me Living for you

Oh it’s this way ok ok
You like it this way ok
Give me a moment Give me a moment

Clear my soul for me…

Words

These days on the water are soothing my skin
These days on the water are drowning out
Your words

Now Joe
Places his words to carefully
They bind him to tight and he’s sweating
Trying to break free out of them
So then she could see his heart
But all she can see is his struggle
His thoughts are so big and he’s frightened
Everything is so fragile
And it’s slipping away

Your words

Now Irene
Throws out her words without power
They bite and they tear
And they’re harmless
and say so much about her and not about me
And there tuning, twisting and fading before her
They’re thoughtlessly cruel
And she’s binding herself to them forever
But this she won’t see

These days on the water are soothing my skin
These days on the water are drowning out your words

Now Simon throws out his words in fear
They dive and they dance and they haunt him
Teasing before his eyes
Perilously close
And he’s waiting
When will they catch up with him
Adrenaline screams
And he’s edgy
The image around him is fading
Soon they will see

Your words

These days…

Complete

Cannot let someone else complete you
Fill in those holes of uncertainty
Let’s find me than let’s find you
That is how it must be

He starves my feeding soul
He speaks of treasures riches gold
I shall not suffer oh no x2
I will eat words and marigolds x2

Don’t know what’s going on with me
Don’t understand why things must be this way
Sometimes it feels like the end is the best
Than the rest that the end is the best than the rest

He starves my feeding soul…

But I know I have so much to do
Forget the past
Learn and live
Don’t give in to where you’ve been
Don’t give in to where you’ve been

He starves my feeding soul…


Desert Row

All the years gone by
Still I feel the warmth of your heart
And I see you in my mind

All the plans we make
Paths we carefully choose
Then at fate’s crossroad
A moments here then gone

Hoping to release my soul from the pain that sadness holds
Trying hard to let it go, I’m walking through the desert row

As we sit and watch him play
There’s a strong embrace
In his smile that is yours
You’re always here with me

I have carried you
With me always
And as I laugh I realize
That you have brought me here

Hoping to release…

I see you walk by in the light of there eyes, a smile, a gesture as they pass by
And I’m lifted

Hoping to release…
