Track Name: Karma
Fold your hands up tight
You’re forgiven
I don't want you to be all alone
I saw Jesus Christ in a vision
Said the way to the truth is unknown

But after all that aimless dreaming
I just wanted you to know

Hari Rama, HariRami
HAri Krishna
Karma consciousness has gone west
Thought the eye that sees itself is unbroken
I dont think that it knows me the best

But after all that aimless dreaming
I just wanted you to know

Though the soul of myself is unwritten
Though the soul of myself is unknown
I took all that way, unforgiven
I came all this way all alone

But after all that aimless dreaming
I just wanted you to know
you're the one I've been searching for
Track Name: Alright
I recall the time you said
That you knew what it's like to be dead
And the sounds still rings round my head

Half the time it turns out fine
Leaves the world a piece at a time
But takes something with it every time

And even if you know what to do
It’ll all go somehow in the end

I recall the times you cried
That even if you knew what to do
It would still happen to you

But everything will come and go
Give way to the ebb and the flow
Of a place that forgets you whole

And even if you what you know
It'll all go somehow in the end

Well I don't know why
You never called me
I don't know why
Track Name: Murder in Chicago
Well you pawned that gold and silver
But you kept your fathers key
And you burned up that old white dress
So nobody else could see

And you told your dear old mother
That youre never coming home
But you held on tight to the golden cross you wore accross your throat

Cause i know, yes i know
That you’re never gonna let this go
Yeah i know, yes i know
That you’re never gonna let this go

Empty bottles on the nightstand
And the night standing so free
And the wind that blows from the river blows you back across the street
But they dont know you in chicago
They cant see the things you;d seen
So you’re free to forget that riverbed
And you’re free to forget me

Cause i know, yes i know
That you’re never gonna let this go
Yeah i know, yes i know
That you’re never gonna let this go

So know when all that cold and the winter comes
And the rain freezes the street
That the price of sin is the memory
Of the things you can't repeat
Track Name: Stay Out of the Sun
You look sick when you go my way
But i got love for you anyway
There's not a moment that could come too soon
Except the one that meant me losing you

But I don't know what they’re saying
Leave it alone
And i don't mind saying
It's too late now

Waking late on a sunday morn
It's like the calm that issues in the storm
You know your words they got me on the run
Hey little children stay out of the sun

But I don't know what they’re saying
Leave it alone
And i don't want you going back to that place
On your own

If there's room in heaven we will surely burn
For every righteous bit of taciturn
And maybe Jesus will forgive my sins
But what the use baby you're not him

But I don't know what they’re saying
Leave it alone
And i don't want you going back to the house
On your own
Track Name: Nico
You know I swear
i've been here before
i remember those lights there just flickering over the door
whether in another lifetime
or just a couple nights before
you know i swear, i've been here before

all the Rain Dog Mornings
And Vicodin nights
And the empty suburban streets
and the buzz from the florescent lights

and i dont have no secrets
just plenty of lies
and i dont back down
from the things i cant fight
and its alright

All the coal-mine sorrow
What do you like?
I summon myself
To another place and a whole other life

Where nothing means nothing
And we’ll be just fine
It’s nothing i’ve forgiven
Just things that i’ve forgotten in time

and i dont have no secrets
just plenty of lies
and i dont back down
from the things i cant fight
and its alright
