NADIA

I. The Tangle
Have you ever heard
the morning birds at night
my Super Birthday
it’s happening now
here to be enlightened
beyond the unknown
you can make a beautiful day appear
from Nowheresville to here
all of them coins
that I took from the fountain
it was me who threw them in
I was wishing
in the Tangle
every station unravels
have you ever heard
the mourning birds at night
time is always off the clock
here to be enlightened
beyond the unknown
the imaginary door
how could it be locked
I know
the window is wide open
step on in

II. The Aviary
Flying into mirrors

III. The Squalor
I was fond of the squalor
slipstream of lunacy
I’m learning how a mannequin stares
I hit the side of the barn
could it be only you
that writes your story
only you
right your story now
does a curse or a prayer
or a magic spell
trip up an angel
Here to be enlightened to the unknown
beyond the unknown
her body does what the lanterns tell her
get back to your nature
you want to leave a troubled highway
with the risk of believing in yourself
you got to get out of your own
it was true was it
I saw her wink at you
the curtains blew
( Nadia )
it was all on course
to you leading the way
you move on
life isn’t done with you

IV. The Parlor
They’re all golden
the nights I pissed away
end of the knife
in the carving lane
start of the race
with your face at the wall
all little dreams
in a convienient storm
they’re all broken
the days swept away
the nights I pissed away

V. The Park
You got to get yourself a listen
to every living thing
with every second you dream
It’s all about your love
what you’re giving
going to put on the new soft shoe
reaching into the temples flume
I need a bell with the perfect wind
cruising Phantom 309
ain’t it nice what you’re made from
watching from the side of the lake
with every second you dream
I can leave this place
I listen to every living thing

VI. The Arcade

VII. The Lobby
When you know
the rest of you forever
you all in all undaunted
in the great glass state
you roll away
it’s not spoken just done
the key to tomorrow
it has you there
I’m so glad I could meet you
here in the lobby
can you still be cast in this play
this is your lucky day
skip straight to dessert
beyond the leaves your film
the star is you forever
