Track Name: Breaking Your Heart
I might send you mellow D's in Moll
And you might draw them prettily on your wall

Breaking your heart is the sweetest
Breaking your heart
Breaking your heart is the sweetest game

If your heart isn't doing what you say
the wind might have led it astray

When you joined in dancing with the first summer rain
Well he knew you were longing for pleasure and a little pain
Track Name: Butcher's Call
Her clock is hammering beats into my thoughts
my brain is steaming since I've learned to ignore my heart

A tram is driving empty through the fall, my dear
while dead meat is waiting for the butcher's call in here

A body is a burden and a mess
when its one and only function is to forget

Someones voices are getting through the wall, my dear
while dead meat is waiting for the butcher's call in here

It's 9 to 3 AM on every clock
she has to set them new when she gets up

A lonesome tank is strolling through the fall, my dear
while dead meat is waiting for the butcher's call in here
Track Name: The Wind
I wish I was the wind babe,
that leaves you easily
through the window in the morning
and only comes back when he's pleased

And if I was the wind babe
I'd pretend I never cared
And all the sorrow that's in my mind now
Would melt up in the air

But I, oh I, I'm not the wind babe
tears that I shed
fill my feet up with led

I, oh I, I'm not the wind babe
the places I fled
I couldn't forget

I wish I was the wind babe
that whirls your thoughts around
and just when you think you figured it out
I'd vanish in the ground

And if I was the babe
I'd only stay a while
in the winding douce and fortness
of the wrinkles in your smile

Oh I, stand in the landscape
grounded with duct-tape
fealing my own weight
while the war is in full spade
all i do is wait
Track Name: Stone Love
Can I come over just to talk
I forgot my light and it's getting awful dark
And could you not ask me how I feel today
Cause I don't feel today

When I loved you like a stone
I didn't mean to break all your bones
And if my fire is burning low
Doesn't mean I'd let you go

If I knew I'd let you know
What in the world made me so sad
But I was never good at that

But what you mean to my
is so unspeakably easy

I left my worries back at home
I thought I'd only need them when I'm all alone
But now that your tears are running down on my cheek
Next time I better bring them here with me
Track Name: Road To Heidenau
Oh could you check these tests
once again considering that
everything you teach us
never really reached us
in our heart of hearts

and did we ask for that?
I don't think so, did we?
do we look like laundromats
you can just fill up
with a couple of old socks
just turn a knob
to make it cold or hot
and for a couple of bugs
you make it start or stop
and get it back all clean and folded together

we can make things so much better
we can make things so much better
we just want to feel needed
we need to feel loved
we'd love to be taken care of

oh this place could be so much warmer
here without your solid armor
if you teach what we need
but the people that teach you
didnt teach you that either

we burn out way too fast
like a match you hold upside down
like a distant star
we still give a spark
but we're already long gone

could you recalculate, please
what it's worth at the end of the day
if we spend our youth
tryin to suit everyone
eight hours a day
for an hour of fun
sitting on rails
doing our nails
and never, never, never getting ourselves together

we can make things so much better
we can make things so much better
we just want to feel needed
we need to feel loved
we'd love to be taken care of

oh this place could be so much warmer
here without your solid armor
if you teach what we need
but the people that teach you
didnt teach you that either

we can make things so much better
Track Name: Nestling
And at the end of the night
get out of the dark boy
the time is right
Forget about your fears
and the tears you cried at night
There's a new born in the nest
that only needs your very best

When my eyes dim to the light
open up your heart boy
and share with me your sight
Tell me what you see
please describe your dreams to me
Leave your forebear in the nest
go out and live your very best
Track Name: I Belong In Your Arms
Can we meet up at quarter to three
I need to tell you about a discovery I made

I belong in your heart
And I should have known right from the start

Four o'clock is also fine with me
Gonna wrap my message in a melody I wrote

I belong in your soul
Without me there's nothing but a hole

This might come across like a little surprise
since we haven't met in such a long time

I belong in your arms
and I promise to keep you save and warm

I belong in your arms
I belong in your soul
I belong in your heart
I belong in your home

You is where I belong
Track Name: What Has Happened To Her Man
She is walking through the sand
As she playfully runs her fingers through the willow
And she's thinking of a man
Who's got his head deep in the pillow

And she cannot understand
What has happened to her man

What might have made him so sad
Can't he see, there's a rainbow in the sunlight
When she smiles into his face
He's just wordless, turns around

And she cannot understand
What has happened to her man
Track Name: Where The Blue Winds Grow
On white wolves
we ride
with bandaged eyes
we go where the blue winds grow

Dreams we had
became walls instead
now we go where the blue winds grow

Hold on
we're almost there
we go to where kids send
their imaginary friends away

Blackbirds scream
and take off their feathering
go on
you can't go wrong

Hold on
we're almost there
we go to where kids send
their imaginary friends away
