Track Name: celestial bodies
celestial bodies, so in love
telephoning each others' homes
will compromise, divide...

...the galaxies,
amongst the men
on bended knee (on bended knee)

we are singing
truths
the night skies have shown us (the night skies have shown us) -

- we are among the living, we are among the living.

celestial bodies, in their cars
gently touching after dark
while we look on, blushing pink
to see them be the same
as that of which we're made...

...looking to the stars,
i have found in you
a quiet truth.
this quiet truth,
it will follow you,
to the deepest of swimming pools!

celestial bodies, in their cars
gently touching after dark
while we look on, blushing pink
to see them be the same
as that of which we're made...

amen, amen, amen, amen.
Track Name: grar
oh, won't you walk with me?
won't you, won't you?
oh, won't you walk with me?
won't you?

'cause I been walking all winter long without you
and I've been wondering about you - about you,
so won't you call me on the telephone?
won't you?

'cause our minds get lost with the moon so high,
and our blood runs black when we hold in our cry,
so aroo, aroo, live your throats to the sky,
and sing to the night what crawls through your inside -

i crawl through your inside.
Track Name: me o mai
oooo, i shake my head like that
how the night falls,
almost always bear-like

having a crush!
man, it's bliss
i just feel like ripping my face off

and it puts me on
a wonderful moon,
and we're going somewhere,
and we're shouting somewhere --

eating cold, juicy oranges to this
i'd rather be dry, but i'll still go skinny dipping
and all the blue, man, it fits
i just feel like, i like it the way it is

and it puts me on
a wonderful moon,
and we're going somewhere,
and we're shouting somewhere --

here's our souls!

we'll shut the world off now --
we'll be over at your house --
we'll be best experienced
someplace comfortable and quiet...

me o mai!
