The Arrival 03:27

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.

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)

Satantango 03:25
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

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

Little Atom 03:42
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

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

The Arrow 03:19
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.

Sunset, Baby 05:08
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
