Track Name: Get It Right
We're gonna take our time.
We're gonna get it right.
We're gonna get it right this time.

Being, being, human being:
Wherefore wise, yet never seeing.

Mind, mind, humankind:
Come along, not left behind.

With a friend, a hand to lend:
The riches of the earth to rend.

Half-life, carbon, fumes deploy:
Our sacred mother we may destroy.

Never is a dream discarded:
Love thy brother in the garden.

Time, time it all goes by:
I know this time we get it right...

We're gonna get it right this time.
Track Name: TrumpStomper
Kick. Stomp. Walk.
Kick. Stomp. Walk, then trump.
(No time to waste!)

Now I'm up to present them face,
I have got no time to waste.
(No time to waste...)

If they want something bad enough,
They can come to me I'll fill them up.
Pull it back, push it up:
Kick. Stomp. Walk. Then trump.

False sense of choice laid out flat.
I'll make them waste, destroy their faith.
(No time to waste...)

They want this? I'll give them that.
Push it up, pull it back,
Pull it out, ramp it up.
They can come to me, I'll fill them up.

Kick. Stomp. Walk.
Kick. Stomp. Walk, then trump.

If they want something bad enough,
They can come to me I'll fill them up.
Track Name: Good Times Roll
It could be Dixieland,
It could be Ragtime,
It could be Preservation Hall.
It could be Zydeco,
It could be Cajun.
It could be any sound,
Blues and such.
It could be Gospel coming out from all those clubs.
As you walk down that street, you hear the music.

If you think you see the devil...
Laughing at the devil goes, “Ha-ha-ha!”

When you think you see the devil now...
I'm not afraid of the devil anymore!

You're drawn to each door.
In each door everybody says, “Come on in!
“Come on in, get a little bit of this stuff. Get a little bit of this...”
You go into one door, you spend an hour or two.
You walk out, you walk down the street,
You go into another door,
And before you know it?
Its six o'clock in the morning.
And it's Sunday morning.

If you think you see the devil:
Laugh him down.

When you think you see the devil now:
Laugh him down.

And you start all over again:
«Laissez les bon temps rouler!»
Track Name: Picture Perfect
The picture perfect couple
In a picture perfect frame,
In a picture perfect house
Where everything's the same.
Each thing in this picture
Is not what it seems.
This picture perfect life
Was just a shattered dream.

If I told you that I loved you
Would you even really care?
I'll be right here forever
Were you ever really there?
No sadness in the morning,
No scars upon your face.
Tear-stained pillow talk
And the feeling of disgrace.

Will it be like this forever?
Will the damage be undone?
The game we played was short and sweet,
We must have jumped the gun.
When you're left alone with nothing,
And you know you think you won:
This picture perfect couple was just like everyone.

...each thing in this picture
Is not what it seems:
This picture perfect life
Was another Silent Scream.

...each thing in this picture
Is not what it seems:
Your picture perfect life
Was never meant for me.

All my dreams were shattered
Like November '63.
Track Name: Photo Synth
I hope I'm not the only one.
The rays of day
Are the rays of life:
Nourishing and flourishing.

Coming from the center of the sun,
Without even knowing:
Everything is growing and growing!

They rays of life,
Through the haze of rain,
The oceans do not ask for the moon,
Nor do the planets their sun.

It's gonna shine on everyone.

From the center of the sun
It's gonna feed everyone.
Coming from the center of the sun
It's gonna feed everyone.
Soak it up!

Let it shine! Let it shine!
Shining down on you,
Shining down on me.
Shining down,
Let it shine, shine, shine!
Oh yeah!
Track Name: When We Pray to God
When we pray to God
We all pray together.

When we pray to God
We bow our head,
We lift our heart,
Kneeling, suppliant,
At His mercy.

When we pray to God
We all pray together.

When we pray to God
We lift our hope,
And bow in humility.
When we pray to God
We seek the light
For our path.
When we pray to God
We all pray together,

When we pray to God
We all pray together.
Track Name: Falling Down
I'm thinking about that feeling you get
When you miss the last step on the stairs with no lights on.
I'm thinking about that vertigo you experience
Right between wake and sleep,
When you jump into a blacked-out water slide
Not really knowing how deep.
I'm thinking about descending into an underground cave
With too much slack on my line,
Yet in the end I know I'm gonna turn out fine.
I'm thinking about a little bit of darkness.
I'm thinking about (yeah).

Falling down through the darkest night,
Down below so low.
Falling down falling (falling down).

Deep down the hole
Where the wicked go:
Down down down down.
So far down the darkness lies:
Down down down down.
Deep down the hole
Where the wicked go:
Down down down down.

On the stairs with no lights on,
When you miss the last step.
I'm thinking about that feeling you get.

Life our hearts,
Lift our souls up higher!
Take ourselves to the sky so high!
Life our minds and the spirits calling far and wide!
To the sky so high!

I'm thinking about stepping up to the edge of a cliff
And being swept off by a breeze that's too swift.
I'm thinking about counting to ten
when they put that gas mask over your head.
I'm thinking about that roller coaster
Climbing to the top of that hill,
And the drop to the end.
I'm thinking about that feeling you get
When you were five and you got thrown up in the air
So you could fly so high...

A little bit of darkness (a little bit!)
Oh my God – I don't even know where these words came from;
I just feel like I got filled up!
This is all coming from my heart - did you like that?
Track Name: Ganza/ Ninja/ Beija...
Ganza.
Ninja.
Beija.
«Saint-Laurent? Mais bien sûr!»
(A house...)
Track Name: Beneath the Noise
Beneath the noise, a little boy out in the world.
A little girl playing children's games.
Grown up ways lead my heart away.

Why do we stay playing this game?
Oh, so afraid of being free?
Why do I stay only to pray for love?
Come back to me...

What searching for underneath the noise:
Peace and innocence of yesterday, little girl.
Find the world little boy.

Why do we stay?
What can we gain?
Will se still love tomorrow?

Why do we stay playing this game?
Oh, so afraid of being free?
Why do I stay only to pray for love?
Come back to me...
Track Name: Our Godfather
Our godfather,
Who art of house,
Hallowed are these floors,
The beat's never done,
The strings well-sung,
On earth as it is in heaven.
You gave us your heart,
Our daily dose,
Along with the drum and bass.
The horns rang true,
From your soul to our ears,
You led us throughout,
Many a night,
Into temptation.
We forgive those
Who do not know
That home is where the house is.

The kingdom, the power, and the sound
Are your now and forever.
World without end.
Amen. Without end, world.

Home is where the house is.
And the sound, now, and forever.
