Track Name: The Revolution
I just had a conversation with an old friend
Poor fool thinks he’s been born again
Baptized in the name of fortune and fame
He says he knows where the power lies, he knows who to blame

I said who child, who’s been telling you lies
Because the revolution starts behind your eyes
You can pray for revelation you can look to the skies
But the revolution starts behind your eyes

Let me tell you about this girl I know...
She traded her mary-janes for high-heels
And her bubble-gum for cigarettes
Blue-jeans for mini-skirts
And her candy cane for something else

She said hey boy, you wanna go for a ride
I said the revolution starts behind your eyes
You can pray for revelation you can look to the skies
But the revolution starts behind your eyes

I knew this gray-haired poet, he had eyes like a crook
He could see right through a man with just one look
He said that winsome smile and those eyes of blue
Don’t they make lying easy for a boy like you

He said hey boy, you better put down your pride
Because the revolution starts behind your eyes
You can pray for revelation you can look to the skies
But the revolution starts behind your eyes
Track Name: Dangerous and Strange
I met a man with a suitcase full of hows and whens and whys
He had them laid out on the sidewalk in the sun to let them dry
He said he'd like to be a king someday upon a foreign shore
He said he'd lived a thousand lives by now, what's a couple more

I knew a woman, at night she dreamed of frankincense and myrrh
And though she don't believe in Jesus she knows he believes in her
And in the mirror she finds signs of her accumulating grace
As if a prophesy were written in the lines on her face

Lately it just seems as if my heart has grown cold
And everything I've ever cared about has been sold or stolen
Won't somebody take me out of state, please take me out of range
Because this life that I've been living has grown dangerous and strange

You could put me in a prison cell and I wouldn't miss this place
It holds a lifetime full of memories it'll take a lifetime to erase
My childhood only lies to me and growing old is a curse
And here I stand somewhere between it all just wondering which is worse

Lately it just seems as if my heart has grown cold
And everything I've ever cared about has been sold or stolen
Part of me is out of range, part of me is gone
Some dreams die a painless death, while others hold on

So hold on
Track Name: You Make it Rain
You take the sun from my sky, you make it rain
You take a day full of wonderful colors and you make it gray
I have no more joy in my life, I know only pain
You take the sun from my sky, you make it rain

You take the sun from my sky, you make it cold
You make this young heart feel so old
I try to shelter myself, it's always the same
You take the sun from my sky, you make it rain

There's only so much one man can give
Just so much that one man can do
I've seen through your lies and your alibis
Tell me now who's fooling who

Release my heart, tell me goodbye
Put the stars back into my night sky
You take a day full of wonderful colors and you make it gray
You take the sun from my sky, you make it rain

No use in talking, You're always walking away
I try to escape, I try to break free from these chains
I'm always waiting, hoping despair will subside
I can't begin to count the tears I've cried
