Track Name: I Saw the Furies Floating By
I saw the Furies floating by
And I cried
They saw the splinter in my eye
In my eye

If you want to stand before the world like a child
You've got to learn to live with lions
To live free is to lose your mind
And the scales fall from your eyes

I saw the Furies floating by
And I cried
And I took Chaos for my bride
For my bride

How does it suit you
When you've lost what you had found?
How does it suit you?
It suits me to the ground...to the ground

I saw the furies floating by
and I cried
Then I took Chaos for my bride
And she sighed
Track Name: Road to Silk
The horizon's on the line
And my karma's doing time
But the horn of fire still glows on

All the snakes have licked my ears
But the future's still unclear
And the horn of fire still glows on

I'm on the road to silk
And the vice is sweet as mother's milk

Brush the sleep back in the jar
You never know quite who you are
And the horn of fire still glows on
Track Name: The Birds in the Trees
When you were young and the world was a song
And you were everything and nothing all in one
You gave your mind to the birds in the trees
The sun and the moon simultaneously

And dreamed...yourself out of the world to find
The clear water

Laugh til you're sore, laugh til you're sick
Laughter runs like an open spigot
Pay no heed, no either, no or
To the color of hat that the trickster wore
(Therein lies war)

And dream yourself out of the world to find
The clear water

Calloo callah, calloo callay
Everyday is mythic and the mythic everyday
Track Name: We Sail on Cowboy Clouds
Faith and a riddle
A pilgrim and a pioneer
Is our curiosity greater than our fear?

We sail on cowboy clouds
High above the sea
And the birds blacken the sky
We dream a deep sleep

Let us cross the river
And rest beneath the trees
Track Name: The Low and Lonesome Sea
Paint and paper, lead and glass
You're all mews and no cats
Come and take your heresies to
The low and lonesome sea

I'm in with the ocean's daughter
Hoo-ha yeah! we're thicker than thieves
Gonna have ourselves a holiday
In the low and lonesome sea

Life's shorter than a powder monkey
Don't ya be so tall
You gotta live life like laughter
You gotta fall, fall, fall

Keep the magic ring in your mouth and
Quick, quick as thought you'll see
You become what you believe in
The low and lonesome sea
