Lyrics from "two"

Social Logic
I can make sense
Out of numbers
I understand nine,
Eight, seven, six
I can make sense
Out of problems
Like dividing this
With that
Dividing things in half
Squaring them off

I can make sense
Out of numbers
It's just people
I don't understand
And how it adds up to
Why we treat each other
The way we do

Logic in social things
Takes a different
Point of view
Logic in social meaning
Takes a different
Sort of mind

Take away fear
Add you to me
Times love plus four, forever
When I add us to them
Times luck
To the power of status
Divided by class
I don't understand

Logic in social things
Takes a different
Point of view
Logic in social meaning
Takes a different
Sort of mind

One plus two is
Logically three

In My Mind
Any given situation
There's a risk
Any given situation
There's a chance
Any given situation
You may lose
Your mind

blue blue sky
In my mind
Inside your mind
blue blue sky
In my mind

Any person
You may know
You may look them
In the eye
But do they show
How they feel inside

blue blue sky
In my mind
How they feel inside
blue blue sky
In my mind
How they feel inside

Hiding behind
Strong walls
Looking inside
Afraid of living
Looking inside
For some answers
Hiding inside
Your mind

blue blue sky
In my mind
Inside your mind
blue blue sky
In my mind
Inside your mind

Emptiness
The monk sat on the hillside
In quiet retreat
To empty his mind
While a woman in a crowded city
Sat in the middle of a cluttered room
Feeling empty

Empty mind
Empty room
Empty chair
Emptiness
Empty arms
Empty hands
Empty bed
Emptiness

Empty house
Empty day
Empty night
Emptiness

Is that when you finally find yourself
Sitting in the middle
Of emptiness
Is that when you finally find yourself
Sitting all alone
In the middle
Of emptiness

I'm sitting in this old mad house
In rows and rows of chairs
The others are crying
But no one seems to care
I look out the window
And I see the trees are bare
I open up my book
And I see that nothing's there

Is that when you finally find yourself
Sitting in the middle
Of emptiness
Is that when you finally find yourself
Sitting all alone
In the middle
Of emptiness

Water
Water
Flowing through my mind
Dripping between realities
Is a song of the soul
Dripping between realities
Is a song untold
Drifting, floating away
Just like life, just like our life

 


 

We Survive
In this world, we survive
Through tragedy and strife
I search for easy street
Easy come easy go
But suffering is an avenue
One must walk a time or two
Suffering is an avenue
One must walk a time or two

With your love
I can learn to forgive
With your love
I can walk once again
With your love
I'll survive anything

In my heart I feel
Such gratitude for you
For you have seen me through
A time or two
And in your eyes I see
Compassion and hope
I trust I'm in your hands this time around
For suffering is an avenue
One must walk a time or two
Suffering is an avenue
One must walk a time or two

With your love
I can learn to forgive
With your love
I can walk once again
With your love
I'll survive anything
Anything
We survive

Average
I'm as average a housewife in an SUV
As average as a rock star on MTV
As average as a parakeet in a cage
As average as a diva singing up on stage

As average as me
As average as me
As average as me
As average as me

I'm as average as a person
Who's short on the rent
As average as wondering
where all the money went
As average as a doctor on the clock
As average a lawyer speaking double talk
As average as a teacher who's underpaid
Like a farm worker, waitress, or a maid
As average as the person who's always late
As average as the boss who thinks she's great

As average as me
As average as me
As average as me
As average as me

A simple smile
An average moon
A simple rose
A rose in bloom
A simple smile
An average moon
A simple rose
A rose in bloom

I'm as average as a warm, deep blue sky
As average as a long kiss good-bye
As average as the secrets we all hide
As average as a lonely suicide

As average as me

Humankind
When someone looks in your eyes
Do you let them in
Or do you guard your heart from being broken
When someone confides in you
Do you listen well
Or do you whisper and tell when they are gone

Humankind
A kind human
Humankind
A kind human

When someone has fallen down
Do you laugh at them
Or do you reach out and lend a helping hand
When someone has lost their dreams and
Hope has left them bare
Do you offer a smile, kind words, a prayer

Humankind
When someone looks in your eyes
Do you let them in
Or do you guard your heart from being broken
When someone confides in you
Do you listen well
Or do you whisper and tell when they are gone

Humankind
A kind human
Humankind
A kind human

Squares and Circles
There was a time
When the square and the circle
Were no different
There was a time
When the light and the darkness
Were the same
Just like you were the same as me
Squares and circles
Squares and circles
Light up the dark
Hot hot hot and hotter hotter
Scratching the surface
Scratching the surface
And underneath there's a circle
Underneath the square is a circle
Follow it with your finger
Follow it with your mind
Follow it with your thought
Follow it with your passion for living
Just like a perculator
Bubbling bubbling bubbling
Up something that you had forgotten
Long ago
Like a perculator
Do you remember?

A Place To Call Home
We're rolling down the road
Highway 101
Searching for a place to settle down
For the evening
A place to call home
A place to call home
A place to call home
Passing neighborhoods
Passing neighbors passing towns
Passing the mountains
Passing the Rio Grande
Passing, always passing
Passing through
Searching for a place to call home
Like a rolling stone
Searching for a place to call home
Searching for a place to call home
Like a rolling stone
