They can tear down the monuments of the sentiments of our past We can forget our childhoods and kill all our moments But before you die, I'll play you the song I sang through your open window that one summer, Along with the breeze so warm We can spend all our money, we can spend our whole life, Living royal and wealthy just by being satisfied And before you die, I'll serenade the same song I courted you with when we were young They can tear the roof off your house and your home's still the sky You'll lay down in the gutter while the water rolls by Overwrought with a fever, hot flashes and chills Can make you jerk and stutter and pull at your will Until after a while of daydreaming like a child, The glaze on your eyes shines all through And then before you die, I'll play you the song I wrote for our love one more time

The cawing birds do wake you up And fill up your bed with dawn And you are so beautiful In morning light, so hard and soft Now I have been crouching since dusk And shivering by my roaring fire I burned my front and froze my back, awake in the dark sky all night I've told you oh so many times That you don't know anything And I've told you just as many times That I don't know nothin' neither With peace of mind and empty eyes One must dive in and believe Yeah, believe we can be happy And believe in what one sees I preached to the man who preached to me That neither of us knew anything I don't know what he believes But I understand that we had no understanding And so I shouldn't write my will yet But I will rewrite my songs To try and break the fickle hearts Of the romantics who wanna' sing along And so it goes... Don't do nothin' Besides what You know is What you really want to So let's go around the country And to all God's children sing I maintain that I'm one of you And that's all I want to be But let's cast away the dogma And the generality, All pervading this good Lord's land Where the finest bitches be Darling, skip church Sunday Stay with me I'm in love with you And I wanna' spend a while In this weird dream Baby, let's stop lying Let's stand up And save the world, Or at least push our luck

Blushing 02:24
Have you ever seen an asshole crying? Or stayed alive while a great hero died? Or felt the same lips that lied kiss you on the eye? Then you know every hill has its valley And I cannot live without you But now you look as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside You look as divine on the outside as you are on the inside And I can see your blood, how its running Around the mountain you'll be coming But with the skin on your face turning more translucent now, More clearly, there's no inside and no out There’s really nowhere to hide But there's nothing to hide from There’s nothing to be afraid of
4.
The cold, unwelcoming visage Of the world wants a stranger's love The world is such a pretty girl And hard to get But one girl will be my whole world Who gives me a whole life of love Who I can not get enough of I’m faithfully your husband, my wife Though the whole universe is outside And two worlds exist in the same sky The surreal real and what we name, Believe is real, day to day I hope that when the judgment comes And old Hannah sets not to come up That we will meet where work is done And be in love forever, Two as one But now the vultures have begun circling I know what they want with me It’s not that I don't want no friends But just that I’m really alone anyway Until the end The winter simply makes dark days So keep a fire going In the place
5.
No More Wild 01:35
The tree trunks look like open gates For the wild, the state of day But by night they turn to the bars On the prison windows of our roads All the dark secrets are inside them And they're looming in front of you Why don't you stay in your little village? ‘Cause we're no more wild and you've got so much work to do So yeah, we can stop at the state park with our bellies full And not go too far from the little car But if we were gonna' do that, why don't we just drive out to Wal-Mart And hang out in the parking lot? It's almost dawn And the streetlights look like moons
6.
No matter what world may be in your mind, The world that your mind is in is unknown and wild So let's admit that we live in a wild, wild world Where anything is possible and freedom reigns Do you make a living bringing tasks to completion Until they're dissolution in a few vacant days, Or by doing your best through each new moment and breath? ‘Cause life makes life again and again Why give up so soon when death will for you? There's so much to learn if one knows one don't know it What great expectations are placed on the youth In the face of the exceptions given in our history books If this is the real world, then what was that before? Do you believe in a realer world gated in the clouds, where we're all going? Or will you admit that we live in a wild, wild world, Where anything is possible, and when we die, we die? But now we're alive
7.
Don't Cry 01:44
Don’t cry if your roof falls in And this world is inconsistent Like snow, sand or dust It whirls around It's a world It’s only a breath, heartbeat or blush Is it safe to place our trust?
8.
You're Free 02:14
To all of you people Who speak English like me And all you other people-- Will someone translate please? You can do whatever you want And fuck what anybody says I would like to encourage you With this question: And I sing it with all of The love and trust in my heart So you don't have to answer it now Or ever at all But it goes: Did you do what you wanted to, Or what you didn't want to? 'Cause that's all that matters At the end of the day So look deep in your heart Each night for the answer And if it's not the right one Then why don't you change? You can say it's subjective and that it certainly is But did you look deep in your heart Just yet like I said? And did you do what you wanted to Or what you didn't want to? That's all that matters At the end of the day
9.
Freedom 03:33
What do we do with our freedom? For life, we’re all like prisms And like brand new spring blossoms, We'll die and fall away When the year turns autumn, Following the rain So why are our souls in prisons, In caves to hide away in? With each a will of our own Why do we keep doing wrong? I don't know But our freedom won’t stand alone Our freedom’s what we make of it, All right?
10.
Oh, I want to save the world There’s so much wrong with everyone and everything And if I could say just one thing to every person What would it be? Would it be, “Change your mind to fit your heart If you want to save the world like me And the closer how you see it will come to how it is?” No Would it be, “Change your mind about it all If you want to save the world like me Because if you think you’re wrong, you’re probably right?” Wait, hold on, let me give it one more try Would it be, “Change your mind according to What’s really true today, for you So you’ll believe what’s deep in me And not the shallow words chosen by those who speak, Like me?” I’m not my singing or my songs but my name is Adrian Orange I know a lot about not knowing, so I make CD’s full of helpless things Won’t you put a little life in these? Won’t you put my record on and set it free? The good will all come from inside you Like a baby who lives a long, long life Now who wants to save the worlds and who wants to be my good girl? Fuck the world that shows us how we can really love it now Alright, now who wants to save the world and who wants to be my good boy? In the same world, rich or poor, we can all live lives of joy Alright, now who wants to save the world and who wants to fall in love? If you love the one you’re with and the moment that you’re in, We can make a new world come Alright

A Real Dream 01:06
Baby, are you having a dream of a dream of a real dream Of a dream of a real dream with red cheeks? Because I am
12.
I Don't Know 02:05
Tell us what are you doing in the world I don’t know, but I don’t know doesn’t mean I don’t care May we be in agreement here? ‘Cause since a patch is significant of a whole I wouldn’t lie and waste your time I just don’t know And ignorance can be a mask and a wall and a shield But for real, my eyes are peeled for the world And as my mind searchlight seeks your answer In the sky of my thoughts glinting exceptions linked through assumptions But I don’t know doesn’t mean I don’t care ‘Cause I love living right now and here And I’d love it if you would make me blush By pointing out some illogical junk To the inconclusive end this song will find Bring blood to my cheeks and so humble me
13.
You’re transported to work in the morning But don’t get used to it And the mountain face is green and dark But don’t get used to that At night, the water reflects distant lights But don’t get used to them And when the spring comes, it brings flowers But don’t get used to that And when the fall comes, smell the leaves But don’t get used to them ‘Cause if you want to love every moment you get, You ‘gotta take ‘em as they come Or else you might miss the kisses of the dewy grass Or the caress of a conversation between strangers
14.
As you sail your life on the sea of its’ days Fly up the flag that says “Nothing, nowhere, no how to no one” And as you keep your house in the home of the sky Make it warm and glow but welcome all Welcome all Don’t stop at the stars
15.
Keep on believing because what the world needs now is a bird on a mountain, A fish in the sea, a star in the night, a singer in a song, like me A mouse in the street Yeah, keep on believing because what your country needs Is a new flag for the future made of the moving sky With curling smoke a-whisping in from all cultures, Ablaze with life Keep on believing because what the world needs now is something no one can understand Like, in your sky of thoughts, what the clouds are What you see is what you get And now who is wise, when now is all there is, and you can’t save it up? Keep on believing because what you do is what is really, really real true
