Track Name: Bohemian Soul
There was something in the snake oil
and the jaded eyes they sold you,
'cause you feel a lot like tin foil;
you bend anyway they fold you.
And most of the time you're colored green,
Trapped inside their T.V. screen,
Going with the flow,
until your lover doesn't know you.

You believe you're locked up airtight
But, your self-control is leaking.
You're the only one at war with
all the peace of mind you're seeking.
You feel you're somewhere in between
What you want and what you seem.
You know you¹re going nowhere
'cause you've lost your sense of feeling.

Chorus:
Oh, dreaming then
Was so easy when
You had Bohemian Soul
Believing was being
In flesh tone
When your maverick spin
Was attached to your skin
You laughed
Bohemian Soul

Life's a gypsy, catching dreamers
as they tire of the dancing.
Pinched between her tapered fingers,
victims dangle in her trance.
And as she circles through the night
plucking souls `till morning light,
you borrow your tomorrow's strength
while you're a shadow in her hands.
Track Name: Cats Got Nine
I constantly die every day of my life
But at least I'm safe from pain and consequence
I constantly breathe, my heart constantly beats
There's a constant refrain from the blood and the heat
Cause I live much deeper than death

Further from the edge than where I die
Further from the edge than where I hurt
Further from the edge than where I cry
I live, I live further from the edge

Cats Got Nine
I've got a multiverse
Stitch in time
For one small universe
Cats got nine
I'm down to one
While I'm living and not living life

I am me; here, there, everywhere
Nowhere safe from not living life
I am free from suffering pestilence
I suffer from ignorance and I'm cheating life
Cause I'll die much deeper than death

Further from the edge than where I run
Further from the edge than where I laugh
Further from the edge than where I love
I'll die, I'll die further from the edge

Cats Got Nine
I've got a multiverse
Stitch in time
For one small universe
Cats got nine
I'm down to one
While I'm living and not living life
Track Name: Feel It
I was a brushstroke in a portrait,
sometimes proud, but most times vague.
You defined me with a touch of light
and saved me from the gray.
Sometimes I¹d lose perspective
but, only on the days
I was feeling rather blameless
but your eyes blamed me anyway.

(chorus:)
when the clouds over you
challenge my view
I'll lift the lullaby I sing
into the richest blues
to show my blackest truths
can paint the mid-nights that you bring.
Your heartbeat stretches clear to me
I've cut myself to watch you bleed,
your cover blown to smithereens.
You can be a monster inside,
but you're beautiful in my eyes
'cause you can feel it when I sting.

Now I'm one rhyme in a poem,
sometimes cursed, sometimes blessed,
I'm trapped between the lines
afraid of things you might confess.
You're ending comes where I begin
I end where you come next;
Love's point seems rather aimless
without you there to acquiesce.

Chorus

(Bridge:)
Sleep now, won't you sleep
I'm with you when you dream
I'm wound up in your veins
I'm anguished when you scream
Sleep now, won't you sleep
I'm there if you awake
to share your living hell
to hope for heaven's sake
Track Name: The Shy Ones
You heard a voice
You moved toward the sound
Someone whispered your name
Somewhere
You look for noise
Lonely carries sound
With no one to explain
...Why it's there

Chorus:
If your heart and mind were sisters
They both would be the shy ones
and when an angel whispers
You're afraid to dare the silence
Once your heart had wings
You could fly then learn to fall
But, you don't trust in things
That make no sense at all

Bridge:
Lost is the loneliness you live
someone's calling you outside
You know that something's got to give
Or you'll lose your heart and mind.
Track Name: Tiger Bone Wine
You say you're ripe for table scraps
The staple of the corporal zombie
He¹s got six inch teeth and eyes so, black
When he stares at you he wants meat
Take it from a T-Rex dinosaur
In a jungle full of carnivores
You got to own more bite that¹s got teeth

Chorus:
You'll like the tiger bone wine
king of drinks is the nature of the beast
When you know that it takes all kinds
No fat cat want's to maul your ass
When you got canines
Say, here kitty, kitty, is the raw nitty gritty
Claw until their mortified,
You'll like the tiger bone wine

Peace of mind's your habitat
You've had it with the corporate zombie
He wants to eat your lean, chew the fat
He knows where you keep your Mommy
Take it from the T-Rex diners corp
In the jungle no one's keeping score
You got to over bite, he's got reach
Track Name: Dream With You
I want to dream with you forever in this world
You are who I am for forever in this world
You are everything I ever dreamed of and more
You are teardrops and laughter all things I adore

Warm and loving I can fee you snuggle closely to me
Softly, gently, I can kiss as you lay beside me

I want to dream with you forever in this world
You are who I am for forever in this world
It's so cold here without you the rain streaks the day
I keep thinking about you my sun's brightest ray

What will be, I do not know
What will be, will be
What will be, I do not know
All I know is that I love you
Love to see

I want to dream with you forever in this world

Track Name: Every Time You Smile
Everytime you smile
the world becomes a brighter place
like laughter on a child¹s face
everytime you smile

there's a thousand different visions in my head
of the things we'd do if we were two instead

Everytime you smile
my worries don't seem so intense
the world starts making better sense
everytime you smile

there's a thousand different visions in my head
and I can't stop wishing you were in my bed

you make blue a lighter shaded hue
and your smile almost makes me smile too

Everytime you smile
the feelings almost come aloud
the silver lining shrinks the cloud
everytime you smile

there's a thousand different visions in my head
of the things we'd do if we were two instead

and you almost makes me come out of my shell
then I remember you belong to someone else
Track Name: Nirvana In The Notes
When Shelly plays he's got the faith
to put the world in Heaven
The music flows into his soul
to the joy of all his brethren
The music shines upon his face
'til he's no longer with us
He's somewhere beyond the atmosphere
past the Aurora Borealis.

He's gone to Nirvana in the Notes
He's gone to the ecstacy of harmony
He's gone to somewhere in the zone right now
He's gone.
Shelly's found Nirvana in the Notes

If I could find the place he's found
then I would be in Heaven
To be at one with the Universe
through music without question
Is someplace to aspire to
more grand than any palace
to soar beyond the atmosphere
past the 'roura Borealis
