Fire Part 1 02:16
A fire will burn it down Flames will burn it clean Build your house up from the ground We will raise the beams It’s been years since we’ve seen you Decades, so it seems You’ve not been forgotten You’ve been in our dreams
2.
Oh, the dust we raise Oh, the mess we made But we keep on moving anyway Oh, the times we had They weren’t all bad But we keep on moving anyway Don’t say a word We got nothing to talk about Don’t say a word Don’t say a word Oh, the history Life’s sweet mystery But we keep on moving anyway Oh, the wars we wage But the roads get paved And we keep on moving anyway Don’t say a word We got nothing to talk about, you know we don’t Don’t say a word Don’t say a word

Pyramid Wave 03:30
The wind from the bay It blew her away And the snow fell to the ground And then from a cave Came the Pyramid Wave And the stones moved without a sound From below, it reached up and swallowed her whole She said, "Don’t say I love you Unless it’s true Unless you do" There was ice in the fields And the cold never yields And the snow falls from the sky The men on the lake Were alert and awake But they could not see in the dark But they tried There were just too many places to hide She said, "Don’t say I love you Unless it’s true Unless you do"
4.
In the twilight, after the fire fight We will not return In the morning, after the dawning We will not return Don’t lose yourself along the way x2 In the moonlight, after the space flight We will not return In the evening, after the greiving We will not return Don’t lose yourself along the way x2
5.
Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today Love but not today, lord, I’ll love but not today The sun destroys with daylight after the moon has held me tight And the only peace that I can find is when I lay down at night lord, when I lay down at night Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today Forgive but not today lord, I’ll forgive but not today The wind whips my back as I climb upon this stone And the only silence I abide is when I’m traveling alone, lord When I’m traveling alone Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today Learn but not today, lord, I’ll learn but not today The rain beats my skin as I walk upon this shore And the only thing that I have learned Is I can’t take it anymore, Lord I can’t take it anymore Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today Give up but not today, lord, I’ll give in but not today Do you even listen to a single word I say Well, I’ll make you a deal lord, I’ll change but not today I’ll change but not today
