Track Name: Lizzie Green
Poor sweet Lizzie Green,
not what she used to be.
Time speeds relentlessly,
poor sweet Lizzie Green.

All night, near until the dawn,
no one, sees her any more.
Life is for the younger girls
and Lizzie bids them all goodnight.

Poor sweet Lizzie Green,
once such a pretty thing.
Goodbye to everything,
poor sweet Lizzie Green.
Track Name: The Illusion of Free Will
Every single choice that you make
has a reason that determines it,

Any choice that has a reason,
do you see that it wasn't freely made?
Track Name: Olga, Soft Upon Me
Olga, soft upon me.
Small thing, do you trust me.
We are lying nose to nose
and your breath so gently flows into me.

Night long, softly with you.
Wild girl, I adore you
but I know that in the day
I must take you far away and safe from me.
Track Name: You'll Never Be Too Close
Oh place your hands upon me and let me breathe your air.
I've shed my winter coat and I am far too cold to care.
Please wrap your legs around me, you couldn't be too close.
I want to feel your blood inside of me.

No don't, don't you let go, don't you leave me.
Oh don't ever release me.

I can feel your heart gently beating on my lips
and I can feel the hairs rise up to greet me when I kiss you.
Oh fall into me deeply, you'll never be too close.
I want your heart to beat inside of me.

No don't, don't you let go, don't you leave me.
Oh don't ever release me.
Track Name: The Birds, The Trees and You
Fat mosquitoes, jungle cats and rain
how it fell.
Twenty one days we hacked our way where no one's ever been

I spent my perfect day with
the birds, the trees and you.

Ropes and nerve we climbed up to the height
of the trees
and all that day we lived inside a magic world of leaves

I spent my perfect day with
the birds, the trees and you.

If a life comes down to moments then
that was mine.
Never so alive and never ever so again.

I spent my perfect with
the birds, the trees and you.
Track Name: One More Circumnavigation
Captain Masters cleared away the table
washed his plate and put it in its place.
Shined his boots and buttoned up his tunic
took his sword and put it to his neck.

One more circumnavigation
but what if he finds nothing out there?

Just one world that he has not explored yet
this cold edge should quickly take him there.

One more circumnavigation
but what if he finds nothing out there?
Track Name: Cats and Starlings
She was then eighteen,
she lived alone upon the roof
of a hotel beneath the skies
among the cats and starlings.

No one found her out until
the day I stole a watch
and climbed up there so I could hide
among the cats and starlings.

She saw me, I screamed as she bit me.

I threw her the watch
she didn't care what time it was
and couldn't read it if she did
and only went on biting.

She was just as strong
as something wild and twice her size
and when at last I threw her off
I knew I must be bleeding.

Scared and free and wild and so lonely.
Track Name: Jealous
I'm jealous, can you hear me?
Never thought that I could envy
a mad and filthy dog but you never tell him off.

I'm a lonely human being,
how I hate that empty feeling,
it carries you away, a million miles away
and a dog that eats my shoes
is closer to you than me.

I'm jealous, can you hear me.
I am green and sad and angry.
I hope he runs away and I will have my way.

I love you, can you hear me?
I said I love you very dearly
but I'm standing on two legs and I guess it must be said
that you know a human being
is bound to let you down some day.

I'm standing on two legs and I'll let you down.
Track Name: Wild Girl and Crazy Dog
No one there but you and he,
a girl a dog beside the sea,
a happy little family and the sun in the sky.

Wash away your memories,
all of yours and all of his.
Start again with you and he and the sun in the sky.

Ships throw away everything that you ever need and
each morning along the shore is your birthday.

All you are and all you need
a girl a dog beside the sea
a happy little family and the sun in the sky.
Ships throw away everything that you ever need and
each morning along the shore is your birthday.

All you are and all you need
a girl a dog beside the sea
a happy little family and the sun in the sky.
