My Favorite Headache

One Man Standing On The Plains Of Abraham
Watching A Damaged Sunrise
One Man Standing Near The Edge
Of A Quiet Breakdown

I Watch The Sea
It Helps To Anchor Me
I Watch The Sea
It Helps To Anchor Me

Once You Start Hiding
You Keep On Hiding
Till Your Paranoia Calms Down
Once You Start Watching
You Keep On Watching
Till You're Tied Up And You're Spellbound

Just Between The Ice Ages Anyway
I Want To Talk But I Haven't Got
Too Much To Say
I Don't Mean To Be So Nihilistic
Forgive Me If I Seem To Be Too Realistic

Once You Start Running
You Keep On Running
Till Your Muscles Start To Breakdown
Once You Start Falling
You Keep On Falling
Till You Hit The Cold. Cold Ground

I Watch T.v.
What Do You Want From Me
I Watch T.v.
What Do You Want From Me

Just Between The Ice Ages Anyway
I Want To Talk But I Haven't Got
Enough To Say
I Don't Mean To Be So Nihilistic
Forgive Me If I Seem To Be Too Realistic

Once You Start Hiding
You Keep On Hiding
Till You Feel You're Safe And Sound
Once You Start Watching
You Keep On Watching
Till You're Tied Up And You're Spellbound

I Watch The Sea
It Helps To Anchor Me
I Watch The Sea
I Saw It On T.V.



The Present Tense

Living In The Present Tense
When You Lose The Past
And The Future Makes No Sense
You're Living In The Present Tense

Crawling Out, Secure And Confident
Imbued With Innocence
Ready For The Whirl
Suddenly The View Was More Intense
Living In A Different Kind Of World

You're Living
Living In The Present Tense
There's Nothing To Blame
No Victim Of Consequence
You're Living In The Present Tense

Something You Said
It Made Me
Step Outside ..the Moment
Eyes Pan Right And Left
Around My World

Open Yourself
Up To The Possibility
Aware Of Some Reality
Outside Your World

In A Silent Universe
The Moment Can Be So Real
You Almost Can't Stand It

In A Distant Universe
Distracted From Ourselves
You Can't Help But Wonder

In A Crowded Universe
When The Talking Turns To Noise
You Almost Start Laughing

You're Living
Living In The Present Tense
When You Lose The Past
And The Future Makes No Sense
You're Living In The Present Tense
Nothing To Blame
No Victim Of Consequence
You're Living In The Present Tense



Window To The World

I've Gone Flying, Trying To Reach You
You've Been Hiding, Riding Me To A State Like This

Give Me That Window To,
Give Me That Window To,
Give Me That Window To The World

We Are Sailing, Flailing Through The Ether
You've Been Trailing, Failing Me With You're
View Of Bliss

Give Me That Window To,
Give Me That Window To,
Give Me That Window To The World

A Little More Than This,
A Little Less Than That,
You've Got Magic In Your Hands

A Little More Like This,
A Little Less Like That,
I've Got Magic In My Hands

You've Conspired, Inspired Me To
Find A Place Like This

Give Me That Window To,
Give Me That Window To,
Give Me That Window To The World



Working at Perfekt

Draw A Line
Strong And Clear
Make It Bend To Your Will
All The Lines
In A Face
So Hard To Make Stand Still

'till The Flaws Disappear
'till What's Wrong Disappears
'till All That's Wrong Will
Disappear

Working At Perfect
Got Me Down On My Knees
Success To Failure
Just A Matter Of Degrees
Success To Failure
Just A Matter Of Degrees

All The Colours Of The Day
Have Somehow Disappeared
All The Colours Of The Universe
Are Closer Than They Appear

Are Not As Close As They Appear
Are Not As Close As They Appear
Not As Close As They Appear

Nothing Is Perfect
Certainly Not Me
Success To Failure
Just A Matter Of Degrees
Working At Perfect
Got Me Down On My Knees

But When It's Right
It's Right As Rain
And When It's Right
There Is No Pain
And When It's Right
You Start Again

Working At Perfect
Got You Down On Your Knees
Success To Failure
Just A Matter Of Degrees
Success To Failure
Just A Matter Of Degrees



Runaway Train

Nothing Blooms
In A Loveless Room
You've Got To Want It
You've Got To Want It

Who's The Fool
Where Apathy Rules
You've Got To Want It
You've Got To Want It

If You Don't Want It
It Remains The Same
It's A Heart Of Darkness
That Wants To Play That Game
If There's No Defiance
It Remains Insane
If It's All Compliance
It's A Runaway Train

Nothing So Cruel
Where Malevolence Rules
You've Got To Want It
You've Got To Want It

There Is No Defence
Against Pointed Arrogance
You've Got To Want It
You've Got To Want It

If You Don't Want It
It Remains The Same
It's A Heart Of Darkness
That Wants To Play That Game
It Can Be Surprising
When You Lose The Shame
And The Sun Starts Rising
Another Day To Tame

If You're Heart Is Aching
Just Remove The Shame
You've Got To Want It

Give Your Soul A Shaking
And Refuse The Blame
You've Got To Want It

Who's The Fool
Where Apathy Rules
You've Got To Want It
You've Got To Want It

If You Don't Want It
It Remains The Same
It's A Heart Of Darkness
That Wants To Play That Game
If There's No Defiance
It Remains Insane
If It's All Compliance
It's A Runaway Train

It's A Runaway Train



The Angels' Share

The Angels' Share
The Secrets Of The Universe
It's Seldom Fair
Partly Blessing Partly Curse

All Those Things We Cannot Know
We Dream , We Hypothesize
Maybe These Are Secrets Shared By Those
Watching From The Sky

If We Are Only Members Of The Human Race
No Supernatural Beings From A
Supranatural Place
If You Can't Solve The Problem
Come And Tell Me To My Face

The Angels' Share
All The Human Mysteries
There Is No Prayer
To The Thieves Of Celestial History

The Myth Of Perfect Reason
We've Forgotten At Birth
It's A Kind Of Clandestine Conspiracy
A Seraphin Joke Of Eternity

If We Are Only Members Of The Human Race
No Supernatural Beings From A
Supranatural Place
If You Can't Solve The Problem
Come And Tell Me To My Face

All Those Things We Cannot Know
We Dream , We Hypothesize
Maybe These Are Secrets Shared By Those
Watching From The Sky

If We Are Only Members Of The Human Race
No Supernatural Beings From A
Supranatural Place
If You Can't Solve The Problem
Come And Tell Me To My Face



Moving To Bohemia

Where The Air's Not Clean
Where The Water's Glowing Green
Where The Dog's Are Mean

I'm Moving To Bohemia
Taking You Along
Say Goodbye To Suburbia
You Don't Have To Cut The Lawn

I Had A Dream Of A Different Place
I Had A Dream That You Had A Different Face
I Heard A Scream Of A Desperate Kind
I've Got A Feeling That You're Gonna Love What
You'll Find

Where We're On T.V.
Where The Money Grows On Trees
Where The Beer Is Free

Moving To Bohemia
Taking You Along
Say Goodbye To Utopia
We'll Wave Before We're Gone

I Had A Dream Fo A Different Place
I Had A Dream That You Had A Different Face
I Hear The Beat Of An Anxious Heart
I Feel The Heat...it's Time For Us To Start
Time For Us To Start

I'm Moving To Bohemia
Where The Literature 's Obscene
Bathing In Euphoria
Where The Naked Truth Is On The Screen

I Had A Dream Of A Different Place
I Had A Dream That You Had A Different Face
I Heard A Scream Of A Desperate Kind
I've Got A Feeling That...
You're Gonna Love What You'll Find

You're Gonna Love What You'll Find



Home On The Strange

He Sleeps With A Chain Saw
Got Eyes Like An Outlaw
He Takes A Two Smoke Walk
He Don't Like To Talk

And He Don't Like Change
And He Don't Like Change
You May Think He's Deranged
But He'd Rather Be Home,
Home.. Home On The Strange

He's A Canadian Icon
He's Sleeps With His Clothes On
He Likes To Work With His Hands
He's An Apolitical Man

And He Don't Like Change
And He Don't Like Change
You May Think He's Deranged
But He'd Rather Be Home,
Home.. Home On The Strange

One In A Lifetime
One In A World
One In A Life Time
One In A World
One In A Life Time
One In A World

He Sleeps With A Chainsaw
He Sings Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa
He Likes To Work With His Hands
He's An Apolitical Man

And He Don't Like Change
And He Don't Like Change
You May Think He's Deranged
But He'd Rather Be Home,
Home.. Home On The Strange

And He Don't Like Change
And He Don't Like Change
You May Think He's Deranged
But He'd Rather Be Home,
Home.. Home On The Strange



Slipping

Meant To Tell You
Tell You From The Start
Meant To Show You
What's Inside This Shallow Heart
But I Could Not Find The Words
Worthy Enough To Say

I Slipped Along The Way
I Slipped Along The Way

Tried To Be There
Be There When You Fall
Tried To Make You Feel Big
When Life Makes You Feel Small
But I Could Not Find The Steps
Quickly Enough To Take

I Slipped Along The Way
I Slipped Along The Way

Want To Change Things
Want To Clear The Air
Fix The Things Around Us
So Badly In Need Of Repair
But I Might Not Have The Sense
Sense Enough To Change

I Slipped Along The Way



Still

Trick Of The Light
Or Just
A Loss Of Perspective
Flaw In The Grand Plan
Just
The Way It Is

Looks Good From A Distance
But
The Closer I Come
It...
Becomes More Daunting
But
These Moments Will Pass

Still
Halfway Up The Hill
My Fingers May Bleed
But I've Got To Get There
Still
Standing On The Hill
My Spirit's Released
But I've Got To Get There

Lost In An Abstract Thought
Dazed And Distracted
Winded Yet Still I'm Caught
With A Fragment Of Doubt
Slowed By Reflection
But
These Moments Will Pass

Still
Halfway Up The Hill
My Fingers May Bleed
But I've Got To Get There
Still
Standing On The Hill
My Spirit's Released
But I've Got To Get There

It's Just Confusion
An Illusion
Easily Overdone
Here Comes Resolution
Absolution

It's Not An Illusion
Not A Fiction
Easily Overcome
Here Comes Revolution
Absolution

Trick Of The Light
Or Just
Too Much Perspective
Looks Good From A Distance
But
The Closer I Come
It
Becomes More Daunting
But
These Moments Will Pass

Still



Grace To Grace

A Hundred Thousand Years
A Hundred Thousand Miles Of Track
A Hundred Thousand Tears

Eloquent Stories
Of What Could Have Been

A Hundred Thousand Dreams
A Hundred Thousand Beams Of Light
A Hundred Thousand Schemes
Gods In The Heavens Can't Get It Right

An Eternity Goes By
On The Fault Line
Between Then And Now

When The Truth Hides
Integrity Falls Shy
On The Fault Line
Between Then And Now

Grace To Grace
Immaculate Vision
Of What Should Have Been

Place To Place
Elegant Story
Of What Could Have Been

When The Truth Hides
Integrity Falls Shy
On The Fault Line
Between Then And Now

When The Truth Hides
An Eternity Goes By
On The Fault Line
Between Then And Now

Immaculate Vision
Of What Should Have Been

Face To Face
Elegant Story
Of What Could Have Been

Immaculate Vision
Of What Should Have Been

Grace To Grace
