The electronic pop/trip-hop group Supreme Beings Of Leisure formed out of the ashes of Oversoul 7, the hip-hop project of guitarist/programmer Rick Torres, bassist/programmer Kiran Shahani and keyboardist/programmer Ramin Sakurai. While they were recording demos, the trio asked their friend singer/songwriter Geri Soriano-Lightwood to collaborate with them. Newly christened the Supreme Beings Of Leisure, the group released a few of their demos on Moonshine Records collections before their self-titled debut album appeared in early 2000 on the Palm Pictures imprint.

The music of SBL quite sounds like the bands name: like suprememe music of Leisure. Some tracks are surely under a pop umbrella, some go really deep ... making you gooseflesh deep that is. But it's always sexy, seductive, soulful and haunting.

The band members' wide range of cultural influences (from India, Domenican Republic, Iran, Japan, Puerto Rico and Ireland) as well as their musical influences (from Massive Attack and Bjork to Ravi Shankar, Mozart and Tribe Called Quest) are responsible for their unique sound, fusing all those influences to some great piece of music.

Before Supreme Beings Of Leisure, there was Oversoul 7. Rick Torres, Kiran Shahani, and Ramin Sakurai were recording a rap demo when on a whim they asked friend Geri Soriano-Lightwood, who was working on her own solo record, to try her hand at writing and singing over their tracks. The results took everyone by surprise; the chemistry was obvious. The trio's clever programming and seductive grooves beautifully showcased Geri's distinctive voice and her astonishing lyrics -- searching tales of longing and disillusionment. The demo versions of "What's The Deal" and "Nothing Like Tomorrow" were released on two Moonshine Records compilations to critical raves and great support from local radio.

After contributing various tracks to compilation records both here and abroad, their collective experiences and shared philosophies confirmed that the band, rebooted as Supreme Beings Of Leisure, was onto something special. SBL eventually found solace in Palm Pictures, a label known for its broad-minded multi-media global perspective.

Supreme Beings of leisure

Never the same

Soft hands my drug
You taste like home to me
Echoing reverberations
I am now remembering
Your kiss is a dream
Elations extreme

One step closer
I am one step closer to heaven

And now I'm never the same
Never the same girl twice
Oh no I'm never the same
Never the same girl twice
Not the same girl you loved last night

Mysterious chemistry
Someone's cookin in the kitchen
Elixir of the pearl
A luscious berry swirl
I'm losin' some sleep
No company I'd rather keep

One step closer
I am one step closer to heaven

And now I'm never the same
Never the same girl twice
Oh no I'm never the same now
Never the same girl twice
Not the same girl you loved last night
( Not the same girl you fucked last night )

Never the same
Never the same girl twice
Oh no I'm never the same now
Never the same girl twice
Not the same girl you loved last night
Not the same girl you loved last night
Never the same, never the same.
Never the same, never the same.
Never the same, never the same.

Golddigger

Just a lazy cat in a dog eat dog world
You know the pretty bird always catches the worm
Got a rocket in your pocket headed straight to the top
The simple life's a joke some fools never learn
Her mission and condition is ease
Ambition helps her do as she please

Who says you can't have it all
Cause baby nothing for free
No money don't grow on trees
Golddigger

Got a sweet little daddy yeah a pretty good scene
He's got a house on the hill and he's swimming in green
Always party on the A-list there's no need to wait
Got a pretty thing on the side of his plate
His mission and condition is ease
Ambition helps him do as he please

You can give love to the birds and the bees

Last girl on earth

Crimson was the color of the sky that day
A sudden flash try to shakes me
Was someone singing in a dream
I could not understand the voices

There's nothing out there
Am I the last girl on earth
Don't you want me
If I'm the last girl on earth
There's nothing out there
And I'm the last girl on earth

Culture that is left behind cannot replace
The warmth that once was your embrace
And as far as I can see
No starfish seas no love
No love for me 

There's nothing out there
Am I the last girl on earth
Don't you want me
If I'm the last girl on earth
There's nothing out there
And I'm the last girl on earth

Out in the valley of wandering sleep
The images flood I can not keep
It's picking me up blind energy
I'm floating on sensations wings
Fluttering kisses I go by
It catches me and soothes my worried mind

There's nothing out there
Am I the last girl on earth
Don't you want me
If I'm the last girl on earth
There's nothing out there
And I'm the last girl on earth

There's no one out there
Am I the last girl on earth
Don't you want me
If I'm the last girl on earth
There's nothing out there
And I'm the last girl on earth
There's no one out there
Am I the last girl on earth

Strangelove addiction

I must resist the thought you kissed
The truth you've somehow turned around
I must resist your soft warm fist
The pounding of a lonely sound
You as thin as rain
And me
I wear my heart
Like a red stain

I fear that I am not enough for you
I just don't measure up
I fear this constant condition
My strange strangelove addiction
Strange
Strangelove addiction
Strange
Strangelove addiction
Strange
Strangelove addiction
Strange

I must deny the lullabye
The skin the touch that makes me high
I must deny not knowing why
The truth has left me dumb tongue-tied

You don't feel my pain
And me, I wear my heart
Like a red stain

I fear that I am not enough for you
I just don't measure up
I fear this constant condition
My strange strangelove addiction
Strange
Strangelove addiction
Strange
Strangelove addiction
Strange
Strangelove addiction
Strange, strange strange

I fear I am not enough
I don't measure up
I fear this constant condition
My strange strangelove addiction
Strange

Ain't got nothin'

Nice clean sheets and a made up bed
I sleep with a book written in my head
Late night calls to nowhere
And no one answers back

I've got nothing but blues for you
See I ain't got nothing
If I ain't got blues

I've got nothing but blues for you
See I ain't got nothing
If I ain't got blues

Backed up sink and a bathtub ring
Nothing in the fridge and plenty to drink
And there's nowhere else to go
Nowhere left to go
Nowhere...

I've got nothing but blues for you
See I ain't got nothing
If I ain't got blues

Yeah I ain't got nothing
I ain't got nothing

It's not where you're going
It's what you've been through

It's not where you're going
It's what you've been through

Dirty sheets and a messed up bed
Over worked and underfed
Late night conversations
It was so good
It was so good

I've got nothing but blues for you
See I ain't got nothing
If I ain't got blues

Yeah I ain't got nothing
I ain't got nothing
See I ain't got nothing

Truth from fiction

I was too busy playing princess
While you were off there somewhere else
I was too worried about someone else
And her name could almost rhyme with mine

I never meant for you to feel this way
I never meant for you to feel this way
Can't tell truth from fiction
Can't tell truth from fiction

I said: pretty one listen to me
Truth is all that's asked for
And love is steering you to the inevitable
But you can't stop trying
Or you may start crying

I can't tell truth from fiction
I can't tell truth from fiction

I was too busy playing princess
While you were off there somewhere else
I was too worried
I was too worried about someone else
I didn't know the truth was mined
Mined...

I never meant for you to feel this way
I never meant for you to feel this way
Feel this way
Can't tell truth from fiction
Can't tell truth from fiction
I never meant for you to feel
I never meant for you to feel this way
Can't tell truth from fiction
Fiction

You're always the sun

I don't see the hour

'Cause everything is you

You're always the sun to me
You're everything you're energy

I can see forever

Yes everything is true

You're everything you're energy

Sublime

In the mirror my love
I see all the berries of the world
Raining down on me
From a berry tree in the sky
A centuries forget me not
A lullabye

In the sublime
In the sublime
If only we could always be this way
In the sublime
If only we could always be this way
In the sublime
Oh ever, oh ever

The sweetest bite of cherry
Can't compare to thee
I suck in the sin the sight of you
Just like golden lotus
I get lost
Like golden lotus
I get lost

In the sublime
In the sublime
If only we could always be this way
In the sublime
If only we could always be this way
Oh oh, always...

In the sublime
In the sublime
If only we could always be this way
In the sublime
If only we could always be this way 
In the sublime
In the sublime

Nothin' like tomorrow

Nothing like tomorrow

Vapor kiss memory of such longing
Whispered dream gone before the morning
Time is such a funny thing
It pulls you on like silly string
Oh the pain and sorrow
Never thought the haunting of
Such a temporary love
Could make me beg and borrow

Nothing like tomorrow
Nothing like tomorrow

Sugar sweet I won't forget the dawning
All alone smiles come throught the yawning
Love is such a funny thing
It pulls me on like silly string
Something like a good dream
If they find that I am lost
Point me to the nearest cross
Naked as a moonbeam

Nothing like tomorrow
Nothing like tomorrow
Nothing like tomorrow

Calling whispers sent to you at the speed of light
At the speed of light
Calling whispers sent to you at the speed of light
At the speed of light
Calling whispers sent to you at the speed of light

Nothing like tomorrow
Nothing like tomorrow
Nothing like tomorrow
There is nothing like tomorrow

Love is such a funny thing
Nothing like tomorrow
And I'm waiting for tomorrow
Nothing like tomorrow
Nothing like tomorrow

What's the deal

I'm looking through new eyes again
Another turn through a wrap around bend
Another fiction about the end
Another heel I have to mend

What's the deal
What's the deal
What's the deal
What's the deal
Afraid that it hurts just to feel

The headlights behind you are always too bright
The road ain't the same and the bitterness bites
Kiss of a stranger
Another trance of circumstance
Another girl a dime a dance
Hidden danger

What's the deal
What's the deal
What's the deal
What's the deal
Afraid that it hurts just to feel

Lessons of the past get all confused
All the stories that I've ever used
Captor of my true desire
Master of my inner choir
I got to know - Won't you tell me

What's the deal
What's the deal
What's the deal
What's the deal
Afraid that it hurts just to feel
Afraid that it hurts just to feel

A dream is true
A dream is true romance

Oh what's the deal
Oh what's the deal
Afraid that it hurts
Just to feel...
Afraid...
Just to feel...
Just to feel...
Just to feel...

Under the gun

I've been accused I've been abused
Sometimes missused and yes confused
A loaded pen I dip again
Another trigger happy friend

I don't know why I continue to fly
In the face of reason
Something inside me just clicked
Like a tick from an awful season

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
And I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

I've been afraid to drive at night
I've been a sinner such a lonely sight
Not qualified not rarified
I persevere I give it all my might

I don't know why you continue to cry
That I'll never make it
At least there's some truth
To the fact that you know I just cannot fake it

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing ...

Naughty Boy

( Australian Bonus Track )

Sweat is the fuel
And heat is desire
Something consuming
Something like fire

No time to explain
You're driven to lie

What you need
What you breathe
Is always out of reach

What you need
What you breathe
Is always out of reach

(You've been a naughty, naughty boy...)
(You've been a naughty, naughty boy...)
(You've been a naughty, naughty boy...)
(You've been a naughty boy...)

Sweetest wine
Still un-divine
Intoxicate you
With no fear of reprise

What you seek makes you weep
And always out of reach
What you seek makes you weep
And always out of reach

(You've been a naughty, naughty boy...)
(You've been a naughty, naughty boy...)
(You've been a naughty, naughty boy...)
(You've been a naughty boy...)

You're always hungry, ain't you
Forbidden fruit it haunts you
It wants you
It taunts you

What you need
What you breathe
Is always out of reach

What you need
What you breathe
Is always out of reach

Give Up

You know it's time (x4)

Nothing's ever easy
It's always such a fight
Hands are locked and ready
A channel for your might
Another world collides
With your heart

You know it's time to give up boy (x2)
You're mine (x2)

I know that you feel love
I know that you feel lazy
You know there's nothing wrong
No, you're not crazy
Another heart collides
In my world.

There's nothing for you to do
Than give up and go with the groove
You know it's right
Just do me baby

You know it's time to give up boy (x2)
You're mine (x2)

You know it's time (x3)
Just give up
Just give in
Just don't fight
You can't win

Just give up
Just give in
Just don't fight
You won't win

Ghetto

When your daddy lies
And your mama cries
Never giving you reprieve

And your circumstance
Is a sinner's dance
Gotta fight what you believe

You've been infected
You lost respect and
And now you're wanting out

That nagging voice has come to bite you
Come to fight you
All through the night

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
From what's in your mind, it's a getto

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
From what's in your mind, better let go

Will they crucify
And you justify
Never giving up your gun

For an empty chance
At a loaded dance
Spinning circles watch them run

Your soul is worn
Your will is torn
There's nothing you won't do

Deaf to your cries
Your savior's blind cause this state of mind
Who will save you?

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
From what's in your mind, it's a getto

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
It's all in your mind, better let go

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
From what's in your mind, it's a getto

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
It's all in your mind, you better let go

There's nowhere to run,
There's nowhere to hide

There's nowhere to go
Your mind can set you free
There's nowhere to run
Your mind can set you free

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
From what's in your mind, it's a getto

There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide
It's all in your mind, you better let go

Catch me

Don't tell me I'm silly
Just searching for pearls
Don't they see
Life is for the free

Yes I'll take my chances on simple romances
High-wire dances
I'm diving deep
And destiny is my oyster.

Catch me I'm falling in your dream
It is all that it seems
This is living, my love
Yes the dream is alive

Who's chasing rainbows
I've got my pot of gold
Heaven (??)
Visions supreme

I'm suspended in stardust
Floating contagious
I'm flying high on a bird in the sky
Love is you and I

Catch me I'm falling in your dream
It is all that it seems
This is living, my love

Catch me I'm falling in your dream
It is all that it seems
This is living, my love
Won't you surrender

Catch me I'm falling in your dream
It is all that it seems
This is living, my love

Catch me, I'm falling
Catch me, I'm falling
Catch me, I'm falling in your dream
Yes this dream is alive
Won't you surrender

Get away

I am here on this road
Knows me well
With head on the wheel and my heart on the floor
Trying through my tears
I'm no delicate flower
I'm wanting you near
Every minute each hour

Get away, can't get away,
Can't get away,
Can't get away from you,
Can't get away from you,

No space is sacred
Time, it cannot heal
This frail unforgiving relentless
Defenseless invasion of fear
I hide in the sand but the voices get louder
I do what I can as the sea overpowers

Get away, can't get away,
Can't get away,
Can't get away from you,
Can't get away from you,

I've been affected,
I've been affected

I hide in the sand but the voices get louder
I do what i can as the sea overpowers
Get away, can't get away,
Can't get away,
Can't get away from you,
Can't get away from you,

I've been affected,
I've been affected

Rock and a Hard Place

They'll never understand
How hard it is to be you
An endless game you always lose

Your fate is sealed
No future revealed
Pitiful, pitiful You

When your life has been a riddle
And your trapped in the middle of
A rock and a hard place.

You're hard as nails
You're cold as ice
You've nothing to lose
You roll the dice

They'll never understand
No, they'll never understand

The only face you show
Is programmed to deceive
Can't wear your heart
Upon your sleeve

Your fate is sealed
No future revealed
Pitiful, pitiful You

When your life has been a riddle
And your trapped in the middle of
A rock and a hard place.

When your life has been a riddle
And your trapped in the middle of
A rock and a hard place.

You're hard as nails
You're cold as ice
You've nothing to lose

You know they'll never understand

Stuck in a hard place

Calamity Jane

She has a place where she keeps her space neat
In a tiny room where she never sleeps
And she doesnt go there very often, but dreams of it nightly
It holds tightly to her glass
These feelings always pass

The skys are not clear for Calamity Jane
Everyone feels her pain

Silly to hide it will get you again
And no one is to blame
It's just the way
Another day for Jane

And locked away in her better days sun
Hides a tiny scene where the rain won't come
Longing for her cloudy silver lining
Where nothing is in the way
Just dont put space between her dreams and her reality

The skys are not clear for Calamity Jane
Everyone feels her pain

Silly to hide it will get you again
And no one is to blame
It's just the way
Another day for Jane

The skys are not clear for Calamity Jane
Everyone feels her pain

Silly to hide it will get you again
And no one is to blame
It's just the way
Another day for Jane

Divine

When you feel divided
Lost from source
When your anchor is drifting
Without a course

Remember you're Divine
Heaven's for the pure design
Remember you're Divine
Brilliant stars will shine, they shine
We are, we are Divine.

When the dark night has faded
To morning light
Like a first kiss you crash
Into delight
Return to that place with me
Of perfect luxury
Imagine that piece you see
Like eternally

Remember you're Divine
Heaven's for the pure design
Remember you're Divine
Brilliant stars will shine, they shine
We are, we are Divine.

Touch me sunshine
Divine
Filled with blood wine
Divine

Remember at last
Who you really are
Remember at last
Who you really are

We are one and Divine
We are all intertwined ??
Just start of with dust ??
And make some ??

Remember you're Divine
Heaven's for the pure design
Remember you're Divine
Brilliant stars will shine, they shine
We are, we are Divine.

Remember you're Divine
Touch me sunshine

Remember you're Divine
Filled with blood wine??

Remember you're Divine
Filled with blood wine??

Touch Me

How could I forget
The wonderful things
That keep me amused.
How could I forget
To worship you each day.

I remember somewhere in my soul
A promise I made.
I forgot and somehow life
Got in the way.

Oh angel come to me.
Yes, angel set me free,
And touch me.
Touch me now.

Out of time, I'm still reeling.
Lose my mind, I'm receiving.
I am still in waiting,
I exist now as you will.
I forgot just how life gets in the way.

Oh angel come to me.
Yes, angel set me free,
And touch me.
Touch me now.

How could i forget (x4)

I have been painted,
By a misty brush.
Lost in my frame,
It seems I always rush.

Oh angel come to me.
Yes, angel set me free
And touch me.
Touch me now
Touch me
Touch me now
Touch me now

So Much More

Come with me
Through the hills and valleys.
Say you'll be an explorer for me.
Say you'll see the shore for me.
So you're free
Just take my hand (my hand)
So you're free
And take my hand (my hand)

I get lost in you music, your song
I am longing to be
I get lost in you music, your song
I am longing to be
I have nothing to offer but love
Can't you see.
You are you, I'm me, but we
We are so much more.
So much more.

Ship sets sail
Across a murky ocean
Bright colored tails that shine
Across all space and time
So you're free
Just take my hand (my hand)
So you're free
And take my hand (my hand)

I get lost in you music, your song
I am longing to be
I get lost in you music, your song
I am longing to be
I have nothing to offer but love
Can't you see.
You are you, I'm me, but we
We are much so more.
So much more.
(So much more)

I get lost in you music, your song
I am longing to be
I get lost in you music, your song
I am longing to be
I have nothing to offer but love
Can't you see.
You are you, I'm me, but we
We are so much more.

I get lost in you music, your song

You are, you are and me, but we

Freezer

I live my life in a freezer
I live my life like millions of people
I left my heart in a freezer
I left my mind and I don't even know

And I've turned to stone
Yes I've turned to stone
And I've turned to stone
Left out alone

I left my thoughts in a freezer
I left my thoughts where nobody goes
I lost my soul in a freezer
I lost my heart where it's forty below

And I've turned to stone
Yes I've turned to stone

Too many visions in the same stream
One ?? living in a hazy dream
To many voices make an ugly scream
They're hounding? me, I cannot see
Why must it be
I'm in a freezer

Free me from the freezer (x4)

Cause I've turned to stone
Yes I've turned to stone
Well I've turned to stone
Cause I've been alone

Too many visions in the same stream
One ?? living in a hazy dream
To many voices make an ugly scream
They're hounding? me, I cannot see
Why must it be
I'm in a freezer

And I must be stone
In the freezer

*** Thanx a lot to Losthopeful for this one ***

Perfect

I used to ignite the fire
Consuming me
I fanned the flames of endless
Opportunity

But now I believe
I have everything I need
I've lost my mind just to find it

Now I see
That nothing is perfect
Not you, not me
Yes, isn't that perfect?
Embrace the fact
And face the mask
Nothing is perfect
You know you're free to make mistakes

I used to long for something
To fill me inside
I used to seek that somewhere
I could hide

But now I believe
I am everything I need
Undo your mind and find
Now I see
That nothing is perfect
Not you, not me
Yes, isn't that perfect?
Embrace the fact
And face the mask
That nothing is perfect
You know you're free to make mistakes

I've lived so long just waiting
To belong
I've loved so, all not wanting
To be myself

But now I believe
I have everything I need
I've lost my mind just to find it

Now I see
That nothing is perfect
Not you, not me
Yes, isn't that perfect?
Embrace the fact
And face the mask
That nothing is perfect
And it's alright to me that nothing is perfect

Such a beautiful faith
Nothing is perfect
Yes, isn't that perfect?

*** Thanx a lot to Losthopeful & Brixley for this one ***

The Light

Morning breaks the kettles on
I'm not awake there's no alarm
The hills aflame behind me
As the ash seeps through my window

My mother's voice spills out of me like vinegar
Seems I just can't stop
My fight a burning beacon
Dare I let it shine this bright

If you could take my youth
And hold it in your hand
Then you'd understand
It falls through it's just sand
No sense in holding on
The currents much too strong
Extinguish all those silly dreams

Did you turn out the light
You wonder through the day
Did you turn out the light

Did you turn out the light
You wonder through the day
Did you turn out the light
Did you turn out the light

I used to be consumed for hours
Without consequence
Burning at both ends
With blasphemous indifference
Yes just like you
I was just like you

If you could take my youth
And hold it in your hand
Then you'd understand
It falls through it's just sand
No sense in holding on
The currents much too strong
Extinguish all those silly dreams
Did you turn out the light
You wonder through the day
Did you turn out the light

Did you turn out the light
You wonder through the day
Did you turn out the light

Did you turn out the light
Did you turn out the light

This World

Lost in streams
Remembering
Your breathe upon my face
The sweet song of your embrace
Another dawn
The fog of days roll on
As the embers fade
The glow is gone

Rescue me
From these everyday fires
Set me free
Let me feel that desire

My darling our love
Was not meant for this world
My darling our love
Was not meant for this world

How did we get to where we are
Tied a string upon a star
We have everything
But time love in this world

All our devotions blown away
By the madness of the day
We have lost something
With time love in this world

Rescue me
From our worldly desires
Promise me
We can bring back the fire

My darling our love
Was not meant for this world
My darling our love
Was not meant for this world

My darling our love
Was not meant for this world
Not meant for this world
Not meant for this world
Not meant for this world
Not meant for this world
Not meant for this world
Not meant for this world

Mirror

I know brother
they tell you one thing
And I know sister
They sell you another
Distract you with baubles and glitter
Their taunts and subliminal whispers
Keep you hungry and apart
Consuming your heart

There's a mirror in the next room
Bending all that you see
There's a mirror in the next room
With your identity
If only you can try it
You know you‘ve got to buy it
To have everything
If only you can buy it
You know you‘ve got to try it
To have everything
That's how they sell you

I know mother
they give you with one hand
And I know father
they take it with two
Enslaving your deepest desires
With shining things you can't acquire
Keep you needy and un-whole
Consuming your soul

There's a mirror in the next room
Bending all that you see
There's a mirror in the next room
And it won't set you free
If only you can try it
You know you‘ve got to buy it
To have everything
If only you can buy it
You know you‘ve got to try it
That's how they sell you
That's how they sell you

Telling you that you feel the pauper
Telling you that your feeling scared
Telling you that you just don't measure
Telling you that you need repair

That's how they sell you
That's how they sell you

Mirror Mirror on the wall
The lure of illusion's my fall
You are the cruelest of all

Swallow

Again they're teasing me
I'm fighting what I cannot see
I'm digging still can't find the key
And logic just keeps failing me

Take another swallow
Lean back and disappear
Take another swallow
And release the fear
One to fill the hollow
One to make it clear
One to hide the mess
And one to keep me

To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running

Oh doctor my dismay
The dragon never goes away
Will your medicine keep him at bay
Will it get me through another day
Buried deep and tied up neat
Laid to rest put down to sleep
All the mischief knocking at my door
I have tried in vain just to ignore

Take another swallow
Lean back and disappear
Take another swallow
And release the fear
One to fill the hollow
One to make it clear
One to hide the mess
And one to keep me

To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running...

Ain't got time for looking back

Good

I disagree with your philosophy
What killed the cat's not curiosity
And you know that I'll do it again
Yes you know that I'll do it again
And there's no stopping me my friend
Not this time

I'll be good
I'll be good tomorrow
I'll be good
Another day

These palace walls are lined with excess
When wisdom calls I'm riding express
But I swear I won't do it again
No, I swear I won't do it again
And I promise this is the end
One last time

I'll be good
I'll be good tomorrow
I'll be good
Another day

I'll be good
I'll be good tomorrow
I'll be good
Another day

I take a bite
Open my eyes
Oh cover me
Yes I am naked

I've made my deals with moderation
But virtue's a fleeting fascination
‘Cause I know that I'll do it again
Yes I know that I'll do it again
And it's silly for me to pretend
All this time

I'll be good
I'll be good tomorrow
I'll be good
Another day

I'll be good
I'll be good tomorrow
I'll be good
Another day

Pieces

You've come to me an open book you say
Still those dog eared pages get in the way
All those slings and arrows
I never pointed my dear
Leave me shoring the dam
And soothing the beast of your wild frontier

Pieces of people and shapes of their hearts
Layers of loving you've worn from the start
Footsteps before me that carved who you are
Echoes of someone you wear as a scar
You're in pieces
Pieces
You're in pieces baby

Under the rug buried in the dust
Hides a little boy who cannot trust
With your bow and arrow
Ready and pointed my dear
Leave me lost in a harbor
Soothing your ghosts til they disappear

Pieces of people and shapes of their hearts
Layers of loving you've worn from the start
Footsteps before me that carved who you are
Echoes of someone you wear as a scar
You're in pieces
Pieces
You're in pieces baby

Angelhead

And there you are
Swift wings don't make a sound
Your pilot star
The voice won't let you down
The angel in your head
The angel in your head

You're down on bended knee
Some nights just push the edge
Another foggy bit creeps in beneath door
You've sought your shelter in some of the strangest arms
It's any wonder that you've made it to the shore
Tired and sore

And there you are
Swift wings don't make a sound
Your pilot star
The voice won't let you down
The angel in your head
The angel in your head
The angel in your head
The angel in your head

Your heavy tears they fall
Your heart it weigh a ton
Another blind ballet of
Trouble that you brew
Be still your comfort has been with
You all along
In faded whispers your dawns
Coming into view
You always knew

And there you are
Swift wings don't make a sound
Your pilot star
The voice won't let you down
The angel in your head
The angel in your head
The angel in your head
The angel in your head

Ride

The walls you walk through in your sleep
The map you had but couldn't keep
Seems it's never as you planned
That's a lie you understand
Every fork in the road you choose
Some you win some you lose

It's all in the ride
It's all in the ride
For when you decide
It's all in the ride
Beauty's there it's deep inside
Drifting on a brilliant tide
It's all in the ride
It's all in the ride

The spell we're under it runs deep
Full of illusions that we keep
Seems it's only about time
And we are slaves caught in its chime
Every moment is only now
And future past is just a cloud

It's all in the ride
It's all in the ride
For when you decide
It's all in the ride
Beauty's there it's deep inside
Drifting on a brilliant tide
It's all in the ride
It's all in the ride

Oneness

Tied to all you believe
Drifting far from all you receive
Let your mind fall away
Let your black and white be gray

When you close your eyes and open the window
Let go of the lies and look at your shadow
When you close your eyes and open the window
Let go of the lies and look at your shadow

Close your eyes
You can see further
High Frequency

Everywhere

It's in the mirror when I see
Your face reflected back at me
I half expect to hear your voice
Reminders float like papers in the breeze
Bathing in reverie
Yes dust to dust but you remain you see
So rooted deep within my groove
No you don't miss a beat you linger on

So strange
I know you're here
‘Cause your love is everywhere
We're one heart I do believe
You're now the air I breathe
You're in me

It's in the way she looks at me
A smile as wide as Tennessee
I hold her tightly with your hands
And cradle every possibility
Ours is your legacy
A downy crib and dreams of what could be
I have nothing to fear
You are with me each step of the dance
You linger on

So strange
I know you're here
‘Cause your love is everywhere
We're one heart I do believe
You're now the air I breathe
Your love is everywhere
Your love is everywhere

So strange
I know you're here
‘Cause your love is everywhere
We're one heart I do believe
You're now the air I breathe
You're in me
You're the air I breathe
You're in me
In everything I see
So strange
I know you're here

Lay me down

What was I looking for
Crawling in a darkened corridor
What was it that I should find
Hiding in the corners of my mind

Where in my heart
Where in this life
Where in this world
Is the memory

Of all I ever was
Of all I'll ever be
The questions the same
The answers come without a name

Of all I ever was
All I'll ever be
The questions remain
I ask them again and again

As I lay me down
As I lay me down
Lay me down...

Where in my heart
Where in this life
Where in this world

Good night
Sleep tight
