Oh, when will you discover we could make it on our own it ain't their place to treat us this way you can't get blood out of a stone and I've seen the burnin' of the field and all that lies beneath the sun I've seen the simple truth revealed would leave you shocked and stunned you take what you can gather and you leave what you will not use they take what they want and they scatter and they kill what they can't abuse oh, mother never told me never told me it could be so bad mama, please don't let them take me from the only home I've ever had the sands, they drift the sea explodes eroding, the mountain fades the forest grows and I am blown away, blown away blown away, blown away, blown away, blown away

CKI 02:24
close your eyes and listen be patient, both sun and rain at death become time it passes, we follow do you think it would take us long if i were strong don't mind us if only they knew what they could do together

any minute now I'm expecting to see your face any minute now I'm expecting to take your place I would walk across the desert sand with a dagger mounted in my hand just to save, just to save this wasted land any minute now I'm hoping to watch you cry any minute now I'm hoping to watch you die You took the only one that I ever loved You took her to the precipice and you gave her a shove and you pretended like it was a fight between the hawks and the doves any minute now I'm expecting to take to the sea any minute now they'll broadcast your last moments on live TV they'll walk you to the gallows and they won't say goodbye I will watch you hang in your coat and your tie and I won't feel guilty, no, I won't even try any minute now you'll be expecting to be cut loose any minute now they'll pull the lever and drop the noose and I will take it home as a souvenir I will hang it on my wall like a trophy deer and not a single one of us will have anything left to fear

In the Air 04:24
be as sound: expanding outward into everything we are the rain and the sun which bring us life but there are those who will gladly see you suffer there are those who hate the Earth there's nowhere that they will not tarnish they don't care what's in the air you're takin' in be as wind: gently moving everything you meet be as light: reflecting yourself onto everything not asserting just exerting, it's all you have its everything there are those who will gladly see you suffer there are those who hate the Earth there's nowhere that they will not tarnish they don't care what's in the air you're takin' in be as time: ever astonished by the present tense

Naked 05:12
throw away your knives and your new telephones the power of your love is etched in my bones one day we two will be written in the sky and if you can't find the words it's okay to cry there's just one beginning and a multitude of ends and when I am dead I will meet up with my friends sorrow abounds and guilt shames us all and our hair changes colors like the leaves in the fall you can run from sin but if you run far enough you'll run into it again and if your room starts to spin I will see you then sit and enjoy this time while you can all that you have is the hand in your hand strength will uphold you but it comes from within and you will be heard above the noise and the din I've learned too much to fit into this note it spills out my ears and the holes in my coat life will continue it needs to be said it needs to be sung it needs to be read you can run from sin but if you run far enough you'll run into it again and if your room starts to spin I will see you then please don't remember my face or my name I don't need your accolades or your honor or your fame but please, hold on to the love that I shared whenever you're hungry or tired or scared please, hold on to the love that I shared whenever you're hungry or naked or tired or scared you can run from your grief but if you do that you're just another thief you can run from your grief but I warn you, the days are brief
