Track Name: Yellow Fly
Yellow Fly don’t come around here when I’m feeling lazy

Creeping through the tall pines while I’m sleeping in the daisies

Oooo I can’t go bare bottom in the water

Yellow fly don’t come around here when I’m feeling lonely

Should of kept my man around so I got someone to hold me

Oooh what are my chances?

Hunt me down Wearin’ me, wearin me out

Hunt me down Wearin’ me, wearing me out

Oh no

Yellow fly don’t come around here looking for a good meal

Satisfy your appetite on the widow by the corn field

Cause she can’t run fast enough to lose you

You hunt me down

You’re wearing me, wearing me out

Hunt me down

Wearing me, wearing me, wearing

Wearing me out.
Track Name: Stepping Stone
Herein lies the truth
It’s hard to see the dark places
I like to hide
But I will lie down for you
I’ll be your honest mistake
I’ll be your stepping stone
In the path that leads you away from you


I think you’re clever
To move in close and glide her around
On your arm
While you finger the bad girl
What gives you pleasure
Might be a stepping stone
But it just leads you away from her

I like to get dirty
I like when you press me down
She likes the water
It washes you off of her skin

And I am your stepping stone
In the path that leads you away from me
Your stepping stone
To the very place I’ll never be

Hey do ya wanna lay me down down down
I’m gonna take you to a place so far away from her
Track Name: Bits and Pieces
Collect my thoughts in the vase you made

The night that we weren’t speaking

Cause I threw your guns away

Wage your war in some other way

Now that you know your mind

Maybe you could think of something clever to say


And as the afterthoughts are flying

And innuendos ring

Here am I in bits and pieces

Bits and pieces of me all around
You can’t escape my presence
Still you never make a sound
Breathe me in like a summer’s day
Now that you know my mind
Maybe you could think of something to say

And as the butterflies are flying
You pull yourself together and walk away
Here am I in bits and pieces


Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do


Examine my wounds in the bed you made
The night that we weren’t sleeping
Cause there was nothing left to say
You touch me here and touch me there
I’ll show you where it hurts and you can take away all the pain

And as the anesthesia kicks in
You pull yourself together again
All the bits and pieces

Do do do do Do do do do do do do do do do do do do
Track Name: Avalanche
You’re like a bridge that spans the ocean (No Drums)

Like a high cliff wall scaled by few

I’ve walked forever to get to that place

Where your soul and my soul collide

Like a sunset view

All of my plans fall to pieces

Like an avalanche of dreams

I kept pretending those threads of hope

Were all that I’d need

But heavy is the heart when it bleeds

So I walk on to the mountain

I sail on through the sea

I may never be able to reach you but I will love you-endlessly


All that I wanted All that I feared

Is wrapped up inside me for a thousand years

I watch the world spinning from some other place

If I wasn’t frozen in time I would cry a thousand tears

Nothing my hands could ever fashion

Could bring your love to me

And even if I survived the bitter damned cold

Who will be waiting for me Who will be waiting for me


So I walk on to the mountain

I sail on to the sea

I may never be able to reach you

But I will love you endlessly

I will love you endlessly
Track Name: Bottomless Wishing Well~solo
Pulled a scarf across my face
To try to breathe this dusty place
Haggled with a man a thousand times
Over a carpet made in Afghanistan

While you’re in Vegas in a posh hotel
Headed somewhere between Heaven and Hell

Took a bus from Kathmandu
To Fish Fin Mountain just for the view
Looked out across the Himalayan sky
I saw the universe in a grain of sand

And I’m on Vega in a fairy tale
Floating somewhere between Heaven and Hell
I’ve got nothing but my grace
And a bottomless wishing well

I have found a better place
I have found a better place

Nothing ventured; nothing gained
Could you please define insane?
1000 gods to teach me right from wrong
Or eternity waiting for another chance

While you’re in Vegas in a posh hotel
Headed somewhere between heaven and hell
I will take my chances
Here in the silence of my soul
And all the king’s horses
And all the king’s men
Could not bring me back to earth again

I have found a better place
I have found a better place

With nothing but my grace
Nothing but my grace
Track Name: Magnifying Glass
If I were a child
I could understand looking up to you
I’d have an open mind
And everything to me would be so brand new

But oh how I’ve grown to see a different point of view
All the lies you told me bedtime stories to control me
I have set aside to start my life anew

I can’t take another day in this small world
Every day my mind flies high above the earth bound girl
You better believe I’ll do just fine without a hand to hold
I can’t take another day in this small world

All the things you bought me
Could not undermine this true enlightenment
I won’t be swayed by words and wine
But the warm was awfully fine I must admit

But oh how I’ve grown to be the version of what I was meant to be
All this mess around me does not thrill me or astound me
There’s nothing you can do but set me free

Cause I can’t take another day in this small world
Every day my mind flies high above the earth bound girl
You better believe I’ll do just fine without a hand to hold
But I can’t take another day in this small world

But oh ho w I’ve grown to be the version of what I was meant be
All this mess around me does not thrill me or astound me
There’s nothing you can do but set me free
There’s nothing you can do but set me free
There’s nothing you can do but set me free
From this small world
Track Name: Hollow
I got me a boat
And I sailed away
Somewhere to the north
Where magnetics stray
Where a white cloud kisses the ground
And melts into the sea
And the blue sky is spinning around
Is where it waits for me
In the hollow

It always felt so strange
This inside out
Living on the edge
Feel it pushing down
In a futile fight for escape
The trees stretch out of the ground
Like an iceberg breaking away
We are all frozen sound
Spinning round

I met him by telegraph
Armageddon afternoon
He didn’t ask for money
And he sounded like he knew a thing or two
About the hollow

I got me a boat
And I sailed away
Somewhere to the north
Where magnetic stray
Where a white cloud kisses the ground
And melts into the sea
And the blue sky is spinning around
Is where it waits for me
In the hollow

Everything good’s on the inside
Everything good’s on the inside
Everything good’s on the inside
Of the Holloooow Ooooh
The Hollow ooooohhhh
I’m Hollow
Track Name: Long Holiday
I walk these streets tonight like I don’t have a soul

A shell of a heart and my skin is cold

I can’t begin to see how I could end up this way

I had a dream once . . . but I’ve gone astray

He’s looking for power and she’s looking for fame
Workin hard just to pay the price
And there’s always someone else to blame
But I've been workin my heart over time
Just to keep up with this over-rated life


Give me one good reason to walk away

I’m taking a long holiday

From the life that I have known

No phone or radio

Takin a long holiday

Would you walk away

Could you walk away

With me

Keeping up with Jones is not a high priority
When my back yard is the Amazon though my neighbor is still a monkey
I want listen to the thundering sky
I wanna lay my worries down
No paycheck can compare to the treasures I have found
Give me one good reason to throw it all away

Taking a long holiday. . .

One more mile to the parking lot

I’ve got a heavy heart come on with me and let’s

Turn this thing around
Turn this thing around
Chorus
Track Name: Pyramid Under the Sand
I’ll shine like the sun

With blinding suspicion

I’ll shower your heart with moonlight and stars

A pyramid standing

Under the sand

The love line that runs through the palm of your hand

And you won’t go back again

Cause it’s tearing your world apart

You keep your secret love in your heart

All your frustration
And all your desire
Will never make sonnets for lost souls to find
I will be waiting
Forever and on
And you will be haunted
And your days will be long
But you won’t go back again
Though it’s tearing your world apart

You’re givin it time Your givin it time

To get lost in recreation

Fillin up the past with all you’ve got

You’ve given it time You’ve given it time

With your new preoccupation

She might turn your head but not your heart ooh

Your secret love

Won’t let you go ooh

And I shine like the sun

You keep your secret love
You keep your secret love
You keep your secret love in your heart
Track Name: Nowhere Girl
Walking out on the edge of the world again

Looking back at all my past mistakes

A chasm of wishes

By the old tree of doubt

And the waterfall of time trickles down

I’ve tried to keep my balance all these years
Like some clown in a small town circus act
I paint my face to hide my uncertainties
And only show them things I do best

If I should come crashing down

A net of dreams will reach me on the ground

I am the amazing nowhere girl

In a room of strangers I’m the strangest of all
I speak a million languages unknown
I travel the universe
Bent the slow hands of time
And with my thoughts I can break the speed of light

If I should come crashing down
A net of dreams will reach me on the ground
I am the amazing nowhere girl

Someone else’s lines

In someone else’s time

The stories never mine but the ending is always the same
I traveled the universe bent the slow hands of time
And with my thoughts I can break the speed of light
I am amazing
I am amazing
I am the amazing nowhere girl
