Track Name: Run Mother Run
The train is moving fast through the thick black night
The wind is in your hair, the darkness in your eyes
I’m throwing out my voice to you- it’s a rope
I know the speed might kill you but you’ve still got hope

Run mother run, run mother run
The train is getting faster and you run, mother run
The voice is getting louder as you run, mother run
I am scared but you’re serene as you run, mother run

The blessing’s for my daughter ‘cause you know I have to go
The money’s in her pocket and you didn’t even know
You’ve been living in the corners where the voices couldn’t reach
And the numbers from your dreams would not deliver

Run mother run, run mother run,
The train is getting faster and you run, mother run
The voice is getting louder as you run, mother run
I am scared but you’re serene as you run, mother run

Mother shields her children from the brilliance of the sun
She keeps their secrets hidden in the barrel of her gun
Try to piece her life together from the scratch cards on the floor
Bet you didn’t even know that she could dream anymore

Run mother run, run mother run
The train is getting faster and you run, mother run
The voice is getting louder as you run, mother run
I am scared but you’re serene as you run, mother run.
Track Name: Sycamore Trees
I got idea man
You take me for a walk
Under the sycamore trees
The dark trees that blow baby
In the dark trees that blow

And I'll see you
And you'll see me
And I'll see you in the branches that blow
In the breeze,
I'll see you in the trees
Under the sycamore trees

(lyrics by David Lynch)
Track Name: Satantango
I've come about the fire
I've come about the pain
I've come about the sorrow
I've come about the flames
I've come about to see
If you'd open your eyes
Four hundred million birds
Falling from the skies

Old flame
Old fire
Burning
Desire
Old fire
Old flames
Burning
Away

I've come about the love
That made the world go 'round
I've come about the money
That paid to clear the crowd
I've come about the forecast
The days you turned away
I've come about the black flowers
Earth's sad refrain

Old flame
Old fire
Burning
Desire
Old fire
Old flames
Burning
Away

I've come about the fire
I've come about the pain
I've come about the sorrow
I've come about the flames
I've come about to warn you
I'm not the one to blame
If you don't stop the fire
I won't be back again
Track Name: Sinful Innocents
Low moon rising in the sky
Wrong directions left behind
In your hand empty name
Times are changing, stay the same

The roads are getting longer we can only walk in darkness
Sinful innocents, we struggle with the daylight
Doctor look, look at them, they’re blind and they are dancing
Track Name: Little Atom
There are two bells ringing
Left and right
High is the sun
Slow is the night
There are two bells ringing
Thirty-three
Green and red
Dividing me
There are two bells ringing
Door in the tree
I will my feet to carry me
To the hand that reaches down to collect the dust
Gold, gold, gold of the heavens

See what they masked from your vision
Carry your rightful possession
Gaze at your reflection
As the storm shakes the water
Give your yellow hair
To the blue black night
Child be strange
Flame burn bright
And the hand reaches down to collect the dust
Gold, gold, gold of the heavens

Little atom
Don't be afraid
Little atom
Rhythm raised
Little atom
Little atom
Track Name: Dancing in the Subway
She's dancing in the subway
Get behind me it's a trick
She's fighting time
Get behind me it's a trick
This language is useless
She told me what I'm thinking is not really that I think
Look at your hands she said
Look at them go

She's got a dollar in her palm
For the poem in the street
Scissors around her neck
A crucifix where her T-shirt and her heart meet
Scars on her knees
From praying to the city
She sliced off her pockets
So she'll never get greedy
Can we see you?
Can we see?

She held her page to the sky
With cut out words and images
She tore it to shreds saying
Burn the prisons down
Freedom can be achieved in a momentary switch from state to another caused by a simple decision like a step from here to there and she pointed to a drain cover
She's an angel in the streetlight
She's an angel in the streetlight
Oh, oh, oh
Rock'n'roll queen
Get behind me it's a trick
Rock'n'roll queen
Get behind me it's a trick
This language is useless

Look at your hands, she said
Look at them go
Don't look at me, look at your hands instead
Look at them go
Look at your hands, she said
Look at them go

And I left her
Dancing in the subway

Don't look at me
Look at your hands, she said
Look at them go
Track Name: The Arrow
A crack on the wall, dust on the floor
The lights on the ceiling are turning
A man on a chair, his hands in the air
Through the smoke you can see his eyes changing
There are seeds where his money should be
You can trust him he knows what he sees
You’re the next one in line, climb one step at a time
There’s no hurry just as long as you’re walking

You’ve got to take that arrow
And you become that arrow
And when you shoot that arrow
you will get there

The green is for money, the white is for tears
And the red one can scatter your sadness
He rattles your fear like dice in his hand
He can tell on which side you are leaning
You think you’re whole but you’re split down the middle
The man who sees can put you back together
You’re the next one in line, this is your time
Gather your pieces and come home.
Track Name: Sunset, Baby
You sewed my name into my shirt
It felt so good to wear
You used golden thread
And you kissed me then and there
I'm watching all the old tapes
None of this can be replaced
You said
Please take care of me
Hold me
Gently

This is our sunset, baby
This is our sunset, baby
Why are you so upset? Baby
I can't take responsibility for everything you do
You don't agree
Do you

I found a corner in the subway
A dry place to stay
Waiting for someone to come and take away
They put me in a room
With a sink and a light
White tiles stained with blood
Running water

This is our sunset, baby
This is our sunset, baby
Why are you so upset? Baby
I can't take responsibility for everything you do
You don't agree
Do you

You sewed my name into my shirt
It felt so good to wear
You used golden thread
And you kissed me then and there
The needle pricked your finger
Before I could catch you, you were over
You said
Please take care of me
Hold me gently

This is our sunset, baby
This is our sunset, baby
Why are you so upset? Baby
I can't take responsibility for everything you do
You don't agree
Do you
