Star Children War Children When will we listen to our children? Star Children War Children What are we fighting for, children? I see your face in my eyes I look away and I hang my head and cry Star Children War Children When will you listen to your children? Star Children War Children Can’t you see that we're all children? Children at play in this world Making up a game and making up the rules as we go along Dance little one Put your whole body into it Pour all of your soul and your heart in, too Dance in the sunlight Dance under starlight The wonderful one light that shines inside of you Standing by the deep blue sea With the ships sailing by Big birds flying overhead in a clear blue sky You stand at the edge of the whole wide world Follow that rainbow bridge of sighs anywhere at all Anywhere your heart desires Star Children War Children When will we listen to our children? Star Children War Children What are we fighting for, children? Our children All children Star children All children

No Fault 06:13
Remember how we fought for the things we want? Is all we got a Super Wall of China Mart? I was caught in the parking lot But it’s not my fault It’s nobody’s fault A dream within a dream A dream within a dream I’m sorry Forgive me Thank you I love you You took a shot and I was sought Is it all for naught? Please tell me it’s not It’s not your fault It’s nobody’s fault A dream within a dream A dream within a dream It’s not your fault It’s nobody’s fault

Love Shy 05:32
You’ve been an old romantic You’ve been a Young idealist You’ve been a little manic You’ve had to be a realist You’ve had a lot of lovers come and go You’ve had to spend a lot of time alone You wonder if You're better off on Your own I understand why I know You're love shy baby and so am I You’ve studied with professors You’ve struggled with the artists You’ve ministered to lepers And other non conformists You’ve had a lot of lovers through Your door You’ve spent a lot of time looking at Your phone You wonder if You ever will be known And so do I I know You're love shy baby but you’ve still got to try You’ve taken the poison You’ve tasted the nectar When given the choice You choose the unexpected You’ve had a lot of lovers and there will be more Maybe one day You'll find the perfect score The absolute stranger that you're looking for will catch your eye For now you're just love shy baby But don't be shy I know You're love shy baby 'Cause so am I

Perfe Tfit 04:42
Perfect fit Maybe if i can just let go of it We could be a perfect fit Learn to take the bittersweet with the shit We could be a perfect fit Maybe if I could just change a little bit We could be a perfect fit Before we even start it seems so sad to quit We could be a perfect fit So sad Too bad So sad Yeah Perfect fit Welcome to my planet Don't get off of it We could be a perfect fit Everything's constructed for your benefit We could be a perfect fit Don't mind me - I aint no hypocrite We could be a perfect fit Everything I say - I mean the opposite We could be a perfect fit So sad Too bad So sad Yeah Perfect fit There is no hero - there is no culprit We could be a perfect fit There is no right or wrong Nothing gained without a little bit of risk A perfect fit Blow a kiss across the desert and I'll feel it We could be a perfect fit For your consideration - I submit We could be a perfect fit So sad Too bad So sad Yeah

Where the rivers come together in the garden gone forever In the stillness of the place where all the killers hide their faces Calling all you sons & daughters To the sunburst golden border All machines are out of order At the sunburst golden border This is where we built the temple As the ground begins to tremble You can feel them dropping bombs Setting off the car alarms Calling all you sons & daughters To the sunburst golden border All machines are out of order At the sunburst golden border Sunburst Golden Border Sunburst Golden Border Sunburst Golden Border Sunburst Golden Border Hear the woman playing mando See the man with builder's hands See the desert die of thirst Do whatever happens first Begging for a cup of water At the sunburst golden border All machines are out of order At the sunburst golden border Sunburst Golden Border Sunburst Golden Border Sunburst Golden Border Sunburst Golden Border

Love has come and the time for killing is gone Piano playing fingers are coming to diffuse the bomb Lay your arms down on the ground Piano playing fingers are coming to turn you on Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long It's already been too long Mother earth never looked more absurd Is it memory who lingers or the fear of what's to come? Father time at eleven fifty nine Got a five o'clock shadow hanging over everyone Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long It's already been too long Judgment come and the judge & the jury are gone Is the executioner playing to same old song? I just can't wait Tomorrow might be too late The day after tomorrow I still want to have my fun Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long It's already been too long Love has come and the time for killing is gone Piano playing fingers are coming to diffuse the bomb Lay your arms down on the ground Piano playing fingers are coming to turn you on Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long Gentle hands hold the key to understand Love has come & it's already been too long It's already been too long

Helium 05:41
I was listening to my favorite show Learning about my history Watching silent ripples flow In their expanding mystery You fill my head with helium Now I'm floating through the ceiling It's such a funny feeling Healing Lina de la Luna You got me walking through the atmosphere Bouncing up and down on the moon In this world so full of wonder You fill my head with helium Now I'm floating through the ceiling It's such a funny feeling Healing Now I'm hanging with my baby boy It's never been so easy This is how I experience joy Watching Augie Doggie in Portugese You fill my head with helium Now I'm floating through the ceiling It's such a funny feeling You fill my heart with helium Now I'm floating through the ceiling It's such a funny feeling Healing
