There is a beautiful frame of mind that is exactly as you say and like a hat off the top of your head, this mist, smitten by moss, gives way.

Track Name: Mile High City
walk on air above the street
Indian bones whispering
I let go of myself

moving slow in the heat
setting sun kissed my cheek
through the frame of the street lights

in a mile high city

oh, my girl kiss me true
let the moon follow suit
let my heart be the fool

free to be you and me
we deserve the air we breathe
we let go of the rule

in a mile high city

looking out we can see
a thousand miles to the sea
build a fire, we are free

come alive around the flame
to the sound of a train
we let go of ourselves

in a mile high city
Track Name: Animal
I am an animal
behind a screen in a cubicle
well behaved and controlled

I am an animal
on four wheels and a telephone
circle in a rectangle

I am an animal
among your ones and zeros
I'm infinitesimal

I am an animal
I was not made to be alone
I wait by the window

I am a
I am an animal
Track Name: You Need
you say love is free
how can that be?
for you I'd lay my body down
all the boys you see
resemble me
but I'm the one you push around

you treat me like your brother
you need to be my lover

in your one track mind
you'll never find
the means to give your love away
where your heart may hide
I'll surely find
and I know all the games you play


you say love is blind
but I see fine
the little girl behind your eyes

Track Name: I Won't Be Long
no, I will not let it go
to come so far and just go home
there's a room inside of a man where no one goes
I dream of the day you're knocking upon that door

I, somehow some way, will find you

no mountain high or valley low
gonna keep this river from its shore
oh, my love, how I will run into your open door

I, somehow some way, will find you

there is no dowry, no white dress
we'll take our vows in the darkness
lifting the veil will be the first time that I see your face

I, somehow some way, will find you
and I won't be long
