FEVER DREAM Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Alligator

Hey
Hey

I see color raining down
Feral feeling, swaying sound
But I don't know what you want
I am open and I am restless
Let me feel it out
Let it all come out

Wake me up, I'm fever dreaming
And now I lose control, I'm fever dreaming
Shake it out, it's just the way I'm feeling
And now I take control, I'm fever dreaming
(I'm fever-dreaming)

Oh-so quiet, when they laid me in the stream
And the star-lit sky grew before my eyes
Twenty-two women stood by the banks
And cried, oh I

Wake me up, I'm fever dreaming
And now I lose control, I'm fever dreaming
Shake it out, it's just the way I'm feeling
And now I take control, I'm fever dreaming
(I'm fever dreaming)
I must be fever dreaming
(I'm fever dreaming)

Ahay

I know that I'm wrong
And now we're both sitting in silence
But if it's alright
I'll wrap myself around your cold shoulder

You think you know me
But do you really?
Something you do
Something you say
Oh, we don't talk about it
You think you know me
But do you really?
There's something 'bout you
Something 'bout you

(We don't talk about it)

A bull without horns
Said nothing, so how come I'm blushing?
And though you are warm
The cold lingers on the tip of your fingers

You think you know me
But do you really?
Something you do
Something you say
Oh, we don't talk about it
You think you know me
But do you really?
There's something 'bout you
Something 'bout you

You couldn't change this mountain
You've got me chasing the sound but I just hear fractions
You couldn't change this mountain
You've got me facing the sun but I just need direction

You think you know me
But do you really?
Something you do
Something you say
Oh, we don't talk about it
You think you know me
But do you really?
There's something 'bout you
Something 'bout you

(We don't talk about it)

Rororo

I am up with the sunrise
I'm tired and I think I want to go home
So let's go and get started
Do you hear me calling, crying out
When I run up to the house
Catch me if you think you can

Oh, what a shame because I know
With open arms then I could hold it all
Oh, what a shame that I row
To the edges so that I can fall off
No one's to blame but I know
With open arms that I could keep you close
Oh, what a shame that I row
To the edges so that I can fall off

I could be centered and in place
In a field full of poppies I could dream you all away
But I know that I've got to get running
Do you hear that roaring, pulsing sound
When I run up to the house
You can follow if you dare

Oh, what a shame because I know
With open arms then I could hold it all
Oh, what a shame that I row
To the edges so that I can fall off
No one's to blame and I know it
With open arms then I could keep you close
Oh, what a shame that I row
To the edges so that I can fall off

But I'm not
But I'm not ready for this
But I'm not
No I'm not ready for this

Do you want it?
Do you want it to be true?
But I'm not
No I'm not ready for this (oh what a shame)
Do you need it?
Do you need it to be true?
But I'm not
No I'm not ready for this (oh what a shame)

Do you want it?
Do you want it to be true?
But I'm not
No I'm not ready for this (oh what a shame)
Do you need it?
Do you need it to be true?
But I'm not
No I'm not ready for this

Waiting For The Snow

I'm waiting for the snow
I'm waiting for vision
So I can feel brighter
I can feel lighter

I used to make mountains
But then they grew bigger than me
I thought that I'd climb my way up high
But what if I tumble?

If I said too much, did I love too hard?
This steel can't carry me, now that things are wrong

I used to make mountains
But then they grew bigger than me
And I used to hunger
So what can you offer me
(What can you offer me)
What can you offer me
When you are all symphony
What can you offer me

If I said too much, did I love too hard?
This steel can't carry me, now that things are wrong
If I said too much, did I love too hard?
This steel can't carry me, now that things are wrong
(So what can you offer me?)
Now, what can you offer me?
(So what can you offer?)
Now, what can you offer me?
(Wherever you are)
This steel can't carry me
(Wherever you are)
And you can't carry me, carry me

Vulture, Vulture

He lives in the darkness, he's calling my name
He's keeping me up, keeping me up
I'm wide awake
He feeds on my ego, he swallows my pain
So figure it out, figure it out
Stay awake

This is all I know
And I can feel it grow
I'm restless, oh I'm restless
It's hard for me to breathe
When all I do is feel so heartless
Am I heartless

Can I keep it up
Still got that feeling
I don't know about these heavy hands
Well, maybe they can pull me up
Still got that feeling
I don't know about these heavy hands
'Cause lately I feel like a desert island

And I had a vision of pillars of sand
It's keeping me up, keeping me up
And I bend
Break me in two so we can both dance
We'll figure it out, figure it out
Hand in hand

This is all I know
And I can feel it grow
I'm restless, oh I'm restless
It's hard for me to breathe
When all I do is feel so heartless
Am I heartless

Can I keep it up
Still got that feeling
I don't know about these heavy hands
Well maybe they can pull me up
Still got that feeling
I don't know about these heavy hands
'Cause lately I feel like a desert island
Still got that feeling
Yeah, lately I feel like a desert island
Still got that feeling

I don't know about these heavy hands
Well maybe they can pull me up
Still got that feeling
I don't know about these heavy hands
'Cause lately I feel like a desert island

Wild Roses

Wild roses on a bed of leaves in the month of May
I think I wrote my own pain
Oh, don't you?

Down by the creek, I couldn't sleep so I followed a feeling
Sounds like the vines, they are breathing
(Oh it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds, oh)

And I've seen the way the seasons change when I just give it time
But I feel out of my mind all the time
In the night I'm wild eyed, and you got me now

Oh roses, they don't mean a thing you don't understand
But why don't we full on pretend?
Oh, won't you?
Before I closed my eyes I saw a moth in the sky
And I wish I could fly that high
Oh, don't you?

A serpent on a bed of leaves in the month of May
What do you want me to say?
(Oh it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds, oh)
You keep me still when all I feel is an endless direction
When I think I'm losing connection
I see you

In the night I'm wild eyed, and you got me now
Dim the lights, we're wild eyed, and you got me now

Oh roses, they don't mean a thing you don't understand
But why don't we full on pretend?
Oh, won't you?
Before I closed my eyes I saw a moth in the sky
And I wish I could fly that high
Oh, don't you?
Oh, don't you?
Oh, don't you?

In the night, we're wild eyed, and you got me now
Dim the lights, we're wild eyed, and you got me now

In the night, I'm wild eyed, and you got me now

Stuck In Gravity

I'm stuck in gravity
I'm far from where I wanna be
I'm like a raindrop in the ocean
I get lost in my delusional reality

I don't know up from down
Or when my feet are on the ground
I've been around for thirty years
It's kinda hard to think about your own mortality

And this high, high love
That you give to me
Is all I'm missing
It's all I'm missing
Yeah, this high, high love
That you give to me
Is dripping down my hands like honey
It's all I'm missing

I'm stuck in gravity
I'm clawing for some bravery
Try to be still in a moment
And I'm hoping for a never ending odyssey

I don't know high from low
Or when I should be letting go
It's like I'm anchored to the floor
And I need more, I need stars like the colony

And this high, high love
That you give to me
Is all I'm missing
It's all I'm missing
Yeah, this high, high love
That you give to me
Is dripping down my hands like honey
It's all I'm missing

You give me something good
Just give me something good

Staring out the window
Looking at the rainfall
Hoping for a starlight
Hands still an animal
Staring out the window
Looking at the rainfall
Hoping for a starlight
Hands still an animal
Staring out the window
Looking at the rainfall
Hoping for a starlight
Hands still an animal
Staring out the window
Looking at the rainfall
Hoping for a starlight
Hands still an animal
Hands still an animal

Sleepwalker

I start a war, no time to think about it
It might blow over soon
I start a war, no way to get around it
It might blow over soon

You make me feel like a ghost
Walking around and talking in my sleep
Talking in my

Sleepwalking in Mexico, the lights are out
I still dream in indigo when you're around (ah, ah)
Sleepwalking in Mexico, the lights are out
I still dream in indigo when you're around (ah, ah)
(Ah ah, ah ah)
I still dream in indigo when you're around (ah, ah)

Three paper moons
I know the color's fading
It might get colder soon

This neighborhood
Feels like it's always changing
It might get colder soon

You make me feel like a ghost
Walking around, talking in my sleep
You make me feel like I'm lost
Up in the clouds, talking in my sleep
I'm talking in my

Sleepwalking in Mexico, the lights are out
I still dream in indigo when you're around (ah, ah)
Sleepwalking in Mexico, the lights are out
I still dream in indigo when you're around (ah, ah)

I start a war (ah, ah)
No time to think about it (ah, ah)
I still dream in indigo when lights are out (ah, ah)
I start a war (ah, ah)
No way to get around it (ah, ah)
I still dream in indigo when lights are out (ah, ah)

Wars

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'all

War, huh,
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Oh, war, I despise
Cause it means destruction
Of innocent lives

War means tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

Ooh, war, huh
Good God, y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, whoa,
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing
But a heart breaker
Friends only to the undertaker
Ooh, war
It's an enemy to all mankind
The point of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die

Ah, war-huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
War, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Come on, let me hear ya

War, it ain't nothing but a heart breaker
It's got one friend
That's the undertaker
War has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much to short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can't give life
It can only take it away

Oh, war, huh
Ooh yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'all

War, whoa,
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Come on, sing it

War, whoa,
Come on and shout it, y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Come on, come on now

It ain't nothing but a heart breaker
Friends only to the undertaker

Peace, love and understanding
Is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there's got to be a better way

Ooh, war, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'all

War, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'all

What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

Under A Dome

Under a dome
While we wait for it
We feel all of it
Wait
Looking back on it

Under a dome
Where I met you first
F*ck the way we were
Wait
Watch the color burst

Under a dome (under a dome)
In a foreign place
Heard you call my name
Stay
Watch the tide roll in

Under a dome (under a dome)
Where I met you first
F*ck the way we were
Wait
Watch the color burst

I'm taking over my own throne
I'm holding my heart and it's overgrown
I'm kicking out, I'm full of life
So why should I cry over northern lights
And it's over now and I'm falling (and I'm falling)
And I'm falling (and I'm falling)
(And I'm falling)
So f*ck all the times that I've fallen
(And I'm falling)
Creature, you're part of this loving game
But it's over now and I'm falling
(And I'm falling)
(And I'm falling)

Soothsayer

Cool it down
The mind is a riddle you cannot solve
Cool it down
The body's a landscape of wildflower

Stay here, stay here
Stay here, I want you
And I know this can't be wasted love
Stay here, I want you

Stay here, stay here
Stay here, I need you
Please don't tell me that it's wasted love
Stay here, I need you

Sleep, I know
You haven't been dreaming, you overflow
And I still feel you around
You've become a tempo that my heart knows

Stay here, stay here
Stay here, I want you
And I know this can't be wasted love
Stay here, I want you

Stay here, stay here
Stay here, I need you
Please don't tell me that it's wasted love
Stay here, I need you

Will you see me, love
Who am I in your temple

Will you see me, love
Who am I in your temple

Stay here, stay here
Will you see me, love
Who am I in your temple
Stay here, I want you

Stay here, stay here
Will you see me, love
Who am I in your temple
Stay here, I need you
