Track Name: Gasoline
Figures eights and Mock salutes
The thing about booze is no one loses
lucite tombs with ladders and chutes
God is still magic to The ones that he chooses

something moves- in the flowers
Spreading like ivy - poison vines
Drop your locks from the ivory tower
If you're a prisoner you're a friend of mine

And you smell like gasoline
And you taste like a liar
I will light up your lining
I will set you on fire

It happens fast - very suddenly
Somebody else is now wearing your skin
The dead still love long after they're dead
As long as you invite them in -so invite them in

Your world grows dark, but not dark enough
The red tide laps up at your feet
You must be stoic sweet child -act tough
This dance has moved into the sweet street, the mean street

I'll see you In between street
When god has washed it clean street
Track Name: Rook
Pat down the sleeves of the eloquent crook
Live from the pages of your holiest book
Climb down the mountain that your God shook
Watch it all from the wings of the rook

Billow smoke - billow dust - pillow dreams on high
City chokes - city rusts - city screams then it sighs
Snapping horses - clapping mad handed cries
Poet faces - tassel traces of illuminated eyes

Bring me your weak and your weary
I'll parade them
Bring me your voiceless prophet
and I will persuade him
Show me a light upon
which I may change
To see my soul rearrange - very strange

Rook precious Rook - carry me gently
to the top of the temple
Rook terrible Rook - take my soul
To the sun in the sky
So hook me Rook - ohhh marry me
To the queen of sensation
Magical Rook - lead me on
To the highest of high
