about

Wide-Eyed Ypsilanti, Michigan

Formed in the beginning of 2001, Wide-Eyed is Tina Lambright and Patrick Pyne. Despite being a duo, they rotated instruments for recordings to make full, band-oriented songs of varying sounds and styles. Their music can be generally described as experimental pop, or psychedelic rock, but avoiding cliches of any genre. Serious, funny, abstract or direct, despite the dressing, enjoyment is the focus ... more

Track Name: Jetstream
Flowing with a pulse
Trailing out behind
It's the mainstream
That creates the ripples
Caused by the rush
Running in a daydream

It disappears...
It disappears...

The exhaust forms
Concentric circles
Will you get out?
Beyond the smokescreen
What comes into focus
Is the thing you are without

Nothing in the mirror...
Nothing in the mirror...

With the Jetset
do you try to keep up
And wind yourself
up in the spin___

Now the Jetstream
Fades to thin air
You're able
To see right in

You see nothing appears...
You see nothing appears__
Track Name: Thud
Thud
=====

Out in the new world
Everything is so big
Unaware of danger
You cross over the bridge
Do you think it's a good idea
To stop and look over the edge?

If you fall for me, will you land on your feet?

Peering down below
It doesn't look so far
The place I want to be
How is it to be there?
Only the sweetest spot on Earth
As long as I'm in your arms (dear)

If I fall for you, do I land on my feet?

I could follow you
Winding the lonely road
We would walk hand in hand
Wide-eyed we go alone

If we fall, do we have to land at all?
Track Name: Break
Break
=====

I've known you for only seconds,
But I can sense the secrets that you hide
I hope you walk on by,
But you make a point to tell me your lies

Going on without a pause
Fatigued by the awful wait
Sever the bonds that keep you strong
But it's you who carries the weight

Empty house to
Rest from the hectic pace
Shot by looks
If only you'd take a break

Bones might shatter
Muscles could tear
But I won't break
As if you care

Empty shell with the
Rocks on the shore
Try to stand up
And endure some more
Track Name: Intuit
Intuit
=====

I want you to see inside
I want to see if you mind
I want you deep inside
Then I'll know you're mine

Everyone wants to know what it's like
To have someone who can crawl up
Inside up into your head

I want you to look inside
I want to show you my mind
I want to let you inside
So you'll know you're mine

Be my twin,
Someone that I'll let in

Read my mind
Read my mind

See inside
See my mind
Track Name: Colorbind
Colorbind
========

Wastin' all the time
that ain't so free
Stuck on the outside
surface of me
I wish I could give you
Good energy
But you're too busy judgin'
The skin you see

Pick a route other than the
same old way
Take off the blindfold and
greet the day
Bound and gagged,
or just won't say?
You know these thoughts
won't go away

Illusions distract
I feel the impact
The first thing you see
makes you react,
With all the rappin' 'bout
Injustice done
The same song each day
Still goes unsung

If colors are to
Be forgotten,
Better eat it soon
Before it's rotten,
You're holding the greatest
fruit in life,
Issues of words beyond
black and white

Bound and gagged,
or just won't say?
You know these thoughts
won't go away,
Pick a route other than the
same old way,
Take off the blindfold and
greet the day

How many blanks
did you fill?
How many moments
do you kill?
There seems to be a shade
that blocks you still
and lack of information
as to my skills / lack of skills

Feel the impact
Illusions distract
The first thing you see
Makes you react

Maybe if you only
Read my words
Would the meaning
still be a blur?
What wrong things
would you infer?
You can't drive, but
you chauffeur
.
Track Name: Men Of Steel
Men Of Steel
===========

If the telephone rings at 3am
You know it's trouble
Your stuff is always ready
You're out the door in minutes
You know someone is threatening
To jump off your bridge

Men of steel they're called
Men of steel they're called
Rivet wrestlers
Cowboys in the sky...

We're the only ones
Dumb enough to do it,
In fact we're the only ones
With enough equipment,
Knowledge of the bridge,
And courage to go over the rail

Men of steel they're called
Men of steel they're called
Rivet wrestlers
Cowboys in the sky...

(Raga)
If you're an iron worker on the Golden Gate Bridge and the telephone rings at 3am, you know it's trouble. You know someone is threatening to jump off your bridge. Your stuff is always ready; you're out the door in minutes.

If you aren't too late, you climb out onto the cold steel and try to talk some lost soul off the beam or wrestle him or her to safety.

Many suicide attempts are impulsive; lives can be salvaged. But if you fail, if the person jumps into that bottomless fog, "there's no describing how helpless you feel," says Ken Hopper, a Golden Gate Bridge iron-worker for 17 years.

Men of called, they're called. They fix and maintain the world's most amazing tinker-toy. But, what qualifies these rivet-wrestlers to perform the delicate psychological task of suicide prevention? "We're the only ones dumb enough to do it," says Hopper, a bear of a guy with a bushy mustache and a sensitive side. In fact, they're the only ones with enough equipment, knowledge of the bridge, and courage to go over the rail.

Suicide rescue duty is voluntarily, but the bridge's iron-workers all take their turns. Sometimes a police psychologist will be at the scene, more often the rescuers are on their own.

"Suicide prevention experts have come to give us seminars," Hopper says. "They talk to these people on the phone. We deal with them face to face."

Often a would-be jumper is locked in a private mental zone and the trick is to get his or her attention. Some tricks that have worked:
"Hey, if you're going to jump, at least give me your mom's phone number so i can call her to tell her.";
"That's a nice watch, if you're going to jump, can i have it?"

Sometimes all it takes is the voice of a human who cares:
"Look, I've been through some hard times myself. I know it's possible to get help."

Hopper estimates he's rescued about 30 people, and lost three. The losses haunt him. Hopper once talked down an 18 year old college student. The next morning, while at a press conference to announce a new bridge suicide prevention program, the same teenager walked back onto the bridge and jumped.

Another time, Hopper arrived at a rescue just in time to see a man fling his two year old daugher off the bridge, and then jump, himself.

"Once in a great while," Hopper says, "one of the guys will get a note from someone they talked down. It's a treasure; it's like gold." Usually there's no follow-up, no closure. Hopper says that's a sore spot; you help save a life, he says, you become involved in that life.

A few years ago, it all got to be too much for Hopper. He had his name removed from the rescue call list and underwent therapy. As soon as he felt like he had a handle on things again, he put his name back on the list.
"It got to the point, it was more difficult NOT to do it."
Track Name: World Of Dust
World Of Dust's tabla beat pattern, is the structural and rhythmic spine to the song.

The basic cycle, is an ascending pattern,
each bar containing from 1 to 13 beats (in reverse, for the last 3 cycles of the song, after the "hinge").

And yes, obviously the number 13 had many positive connections to Wide-Eyed as a group, and us individually, so naturally, i focused on that number for this. As mentioned in the "notes", this was the song i was working on, when Tina proposed the idea of the band to me, so 13 was an aspect from the outset (not to mention our band's address of 1339 (39 being 13x3, of course) Apt. 13 (shown on LUCK's back cover)

I wanted to capture a consistent feel, yet have the song open up on further examination, including the palindromic nature of each individual cycle, as well as the more obvious symmetry of the song as a whole.
In my mind, i visualized the pattern as sort of an audio mandala (though to say that sounds pretentious, it originated from an innocent, genuine place within myself).
It began as a personal exercise for my own practice, and recording; i didn't set out to add to Indian music, but if it were considered to be an addition, it is only a small reciprocation from me, for all that i have received from the sublime music of India.
-Patrick

Each beat #1 should be stressed.
As the beats are counted out, all have equal time value, and are in consistent tempo.

Track Name: Invaders Retreat
Invaders Retreat
==============

Like a cat
With a mouse
You think it's yours,
But it's not

Intruding on the space
Invaders retreat
Invaders retreat

Like a snake
With a rock
You think it's yours,
But it's not

Crowding all the space
Invaders retreat
Invaders retreat

Like a boy
With a box
You think it's yours,
but it's not.
Track Name: (protest song)
(protest song)
============

Look at the clouds
In the smoke-filled sky
Look at the disbelief
In my eyes

I set no fire
flames consume
The hatred of brothers
Will burn the room

Too many people
In too tight a space
No one stops to help us
Avoid any answer
Destroy our living space

There's a fire on tonight
And it's not the sun

Who sets this fire?
Smoke consumes
No time to retire
No man on the moon

No one is certain
Who owns this place,
Does it even matter?
Deaf to the answers
Survival is a race

There's a fire on tonight
And it's not the sun.
Track Name: Coldwater
Coldwater
========

Sometime in early night
Crossing town
They approached the light

Everything seems all right

It turned green, thay didn't have a clue
Without looking both ways
They started through

Everything seems all right

The other cars were sitting tight
Everybody knows
She runs the lights

Everything seemed all right...
Track Name: Deadline
Deadline
========

I've gotta make my deadline
Or I'm dead meat on a line
Lost, in search of a sign
The hidden piece I cannot find
I've got no time for waitin'
In this never-ending line
(and that's just the beginning)

Can't find a helping hand
Drownin' in this barren land
So much for my plans
A millionth time to begin again
Everywhere I see my hourglass
Runnin' low on sand

Either way, it's not right
Slowly you'll start to feel
You'll fall out of sight

Nightmares fill my sleep
I need to unwind
Then I wake up to find
I've wasted so much precious time
I'm closer than ever
To my deadline

I don't have the time
For this standin' still line
Heart in search for signs
The peace inside I cannot find
'Til I'm dead meat on a line
But, did I make my deadline?
Track Name: Blanketed White
Blanketed White
=============

And what could it be?
Falling from the sky
Looking down on life
Changing the keys

Blanketed white
Sensuous light
A solid rain
Cleanse the air

And what do you see?
Floating in the sky
Looking down on life
And changing the keys

Changing the key
Looking down on life
Floating in the sky
What do you see?

Blanketed White
Warm starlight
Sudden rain
Fills the air

What do you see?
What do you see?

Blanketed white
A contrast to night
See-through rain
A lens in the air

(A) Mist the sun
Burns away
Dust blown by the
Invisible, invincible
Wind
Track Name: Toledo
Toledo
======

Toledo (Nice and slow)
Neighbors on porches
Crickets making noises

Everything's great in Toledo

Maumee (mommy)
Nothing ever hurts
Can't find a speck of dirt

Everything's clean in Toledo

Ohio (now I know)
Smiles for everyone
Everyone's in the sun

Everything's right in Toledo
Something's wrong in Toledo

La La, La-La-La La...
Track Name: Commotion
Commotion
==========

There was a young lad
Lived with his mom and dad

You wanna hear noise you know you really want to
You gotta hear noise you know you really want to
You wanna hear noise you know you really got to
You gotta hear noise you know you really got to

He knew a lot about a small space
He had noise come slap him in the face
So he did not know time or place

Got to
Want to

You wanna make noise you know you really want to
You gotta make noise you know you really want to
You wanna make noise you know you really got to
You gotta make noise you know you really got to


He
Heard
Music

(Ms. Python: "Why do you kids always have to make such a commotion?")
Track Name: Buca
Buca
====

From your mouth
Invisible clown lips move
One and the same
The restaurant and his stage name

Beppo, Beppo...
Beppo___

Glimpse the obsession
Then hide the regression
There are already plans in place
In the basement

Innocent eater
At lunch from his job
I am witness to the horror
A hit from an imagined mob

From his mouth
Soft words
Before the shouting began
He never even ran

Beppo, Beppo...
Beppo___

Blood, wine or tomato sauce,
No one can distinguish the three
You'd better have another drink
To look again and see
If what you think you saw
Was really what you thought you saw
And if it was all really true

("Raow")

Glimpse the aggression
That led to the transgression
All could see the plan taking place
In the basement

From their mouths
Lips shape the words
That cannot begin to tell
Just how far
This clown
Fell__
Track Name: Should Have Known It Was Dead
Should Have Known It Was Dead
==========================

Empty spaces
Void of faces
Wouldn't you know
Out of all the places

It would be here

Should have known it was dead

Cracks in the streets
Nobody speaks
There's no sound, no music,
No feel, no beat

Definitely not here

Should have known it was dead

Broken glass
It's in the past
It'd be better if you
just didn't ask

What happened here?

Should have known it was dead
Track Name: Warm
Warm
=====

Stop, stare
It fills up the air
Is it just me?
Do they hear what i see?

If you looked right here
You could lose your fears
And maybe it's a comforting form
And maybe it keeps you warm

Time designned to find your mind
Time refined to fill your mind
Time is mine to find

If you looked right here
You could lose your fears
Maybe it's the attractive form
Maybe it makes you warm

Walking home in the cold
You see the lights ahead
Coming in from the storm
Go to the fire to get warm

If you looked right here
You could lose your fears
Maybe the strength will form
Maybe you're getting warm
Track Name: Shaggy
Shaggy
======

The way your face is looking saggy
Reminds me of something raggedy
Like a doll, but your eyes are baggy
Keepin' time, but the beats are draggy

Still you're not concerned
With the way your candle burns
To the middle from both ends
Do you consider yourself your friend?

You've got a dog, but her name is Maggie
So tell me why they call you "Shaggy"
Playing with time, but the beats are draggy
Is it because of that fat, little baggie?

The slow motion turns
A gradual burn
What's coming 'round the bend?
- It could be the end.
Track Name: Water Boiled
Water Boiled
==========

The air I breathe
Is poison to me
But still i breathe all the same

An endless search
For life on Earth
Wishing it was just a game

Lots of sound
But no one around

Children's rhymes
Seem to pass the time
Bored depression
Is hard to beat
I drink my water boiled
Even that is spoiled
let alone everything I eat

It's hard to relax
Waiting on surprise attacks
Emotions like wax
I start seeing the cracks
Far past logic and facts
Still I've gotta watch my back

Lots of sound
but no one around

I don't know about
A thousand years from now
Or a hundred or even just one
When things go this way
It's a welcome day
When the Earth gets swallowed by the sun
Track Name: Hidden Drive
Hidden Drive
============

Half a day off in another week
So many questions that never speak
Earplugs might just ruin the taste
Of the solid sculpture reduced to paste

Fell to the concrete
From the sky
Rising from his knees
With a hidden drive

Half a day off in an unending week
The devil in the details that no one speaks
Earplugs might just ruin the taste
Of the solid sculpture reduced to paste

Fell to her knees
From the sky
Rising from the concrete
With a hidden drive
Track Name: Boxes
Boxes
=====

Building boxes,
Got to build the boxes

We're a higher animal,
We leave the dirt behind
Carpet and four walls
Are what we have in mind
Fixtures, frames and furniture
Add our own design

Build the boxes,
We've got to build more boxes

The roof and the windows
Will keep out the elements
No insects or intruders
Are all added benefits
Everyone wants their own place,
Either castle or tenement

What do you think, wood grows on trees?
Just pick the apple 'cause it's free?
Might work for them, but not you and me.
Why can't we just walk away and
Let it be?

All these people must have a place;
Doesn't matter if this leaves no empty space.
Everyone needs a baby with a matching face
As long as we keep this up, there won't
Be a trace.

Building boxes,
Build more boxes

Do you have a place with a spiral stair?
Maybe a home always recirculating air?
Just make sure to give it that personal flair.
Why don't you just put that couch over there?
Track Name: Distraction
Distraction
=========

Endless advertisements
Filled with truths half full
It's reached saturation
They're pushing while they pull

Rain falling down til everybody drowns
So many traps, kind of makes you
Feel like you might - snap

I can reach a state
Where I dread interaction
Not out of hate - just overloaded
To distraction

Complex infractions
When criminals use the laws
Then they vanish behind a clause
And take a bow at the applause

You're losing traction,
Falling to distraction

Constant interruptions
Never a word to the wise
If I can't see behind it,
At least I see the disguise

Getting cut down pound for pound
Stuck and jammed, kind of makes you
Feel like you've been - slammed

I can reach a state
Where I dread interaction
Not out of hate, just overloaded
To distraction

What's your' distraction?
Track Name: Keep My Word
Keep My Word
===========

You listen, but with no response
As I talk about things I never seem to do
A tell-tale smirk behind those eyes
Because you know right now,
I have no follow-through

Why can't I ever do as I say?!
Why do I promise everyday?!
Why is it that I have no shame?!
Why am I so fucking lame?!

If only I would just get off my ass
There's so much that I want to do
Why do I keep repeating the past?
I guess it's just because
I'm not in the mood

Keep my word
Keep my word
Keep my word

I might be ready for a change of pace
Maybe for once I'll keep my word
Can't stand dropping out of the race
Sick and tired of looking absurd

Keep my word
Keep my word
Keep my word
Track Name: Wish Away
Wish Away
=========

Wish away the endless night
Concentrate and all is bright
Who are you but the setting sun?
What remains when the day is done?

Only the clear evening sky
A billion stars, a billion eyes

Wish away the endless day
The thrashing winds, the leaves in fray
Who are you in the morning's dawn?
What is seen when the dark is gone?

Hiding in the clear, star-filled sky
A billion eyes, a billion "why"s

It's only a wish away
It's only a wish away
Track Name: Likeitlikeitis
Likeitlikeitis
=========

A special occasion
That comes every year
On your mind
As the event draws near

We do not like surprises
We do not like surprises

A predictable course
That does not deviate
Has worked for the others
Let's just replicate

We do not like surprises

We do not like surprises
We do not like surprises

So scared of
Sammy Davis Junior vision
In their faces
Like the bars of a prison
Have no plan
To rethink their position
In their minds
Then, there's no decision
Track Name: Peels
Peels
=====

People drive away
Three shifts each day
Til late one night
It was the bright lights

See the peels on the ground
Thrown out, left behind
The black peels on the ground

The solid yellow line
Does crazy things to the mind

Bent metal broken glass cart, hit stays deer
Smacked off track, couldn't steer clear

See the peels on the ground
Thrown out, left behind
The black peels on the ground
All they left was the rind
See the peels on the ground
Thrown out, left behind

The solid yellow line
Does crazy things to the mind
Track Name: Explain It To Me
Explain It To Me
============

Why do I resist
Getting out of bed?
I keep resetting the alarm instead
Sleep is always
The best escape
But in my dreams
I'm still awake - awake

Why do I resist
Walking out the door?
Home leaves me wanting more
A lot can happen once you leave
A lot more than we want to believe

Why do i fight sometimes
Just to breathe?
Would you please
Explain it to me?

Why do I resist
A helping hand?
I don't believe in my fellow man
We're headed downhill
Too fast to stop
Falling back down
From the top

Why do I fight sometimes
Just to breathe?
Why am I so blind
I can't see?
Can you do anything
To help me?
Won't you please
Explain it to me?
Track Name: Intertwined
Intertwined
=========

Weave the waterlogged wood
Form the strong vessel
The design, intricate and good

To twist with another
To twist with another

Take the small strands of damp hair
Braids that twist and turn
Together, such a nice pair

To clasp o'er and fold
We know the rope is going to hold
No matter what the weight
It withstands the night and day
Heat and cold

To wind about something

Time and again
We return to each other
Find that we fit
Never to be replaced
With another

To twist with another
Track Name: Perigee
Perigee
======

Somehow empty
But dirty all the same
The bus stop stands there
Sitting alone in the rain

The city filled with air
And people to breathe it all in
There's not so much life here
As there once had been

Closer and closer
We elipse each other in time

The magnetism pulls us
Regardless of the words we say
Our own minds fool us
To think it's another way

Closer and closer
We elipse each other in time

A hollow shadow
That touches us all around
No one will be nearer
Yet never utter a sound

Closer and closer
We elipse each other in time
Closer and closer
We eclipse each other in time

Salad and oatmeal
Wiped out, wound up
Time's out, wake up
I read a book
I write a page outside
In a gorcery store
On a couch
In a boat

Just as I'm about to
Grab the box
The ceiling opens up
I jumped
To a rock
It was awful green grass that day
The birds, the lizards take turns

Come on quick,
I can't be late
Come on quick,
I can't be late

She's never wrong
She knows with who
And how long
It's the strangest form
Of extra sensory perception
I've seen

No single detail
Escapes her attention
Like a Santa Claus for sex,
She knows everything

Perversions are clear
Whether she likes it or not
She's learned not to fear,
Like many things
She's taught herself

She's never wrong
She knows with whom
And how long
It's the strangest form
Of character assessment
I've seen

Something deeper
Than others can see
She could be treated
Like a fearsome alien being
if they knew

Lost Dog
========

Even when you
Were just brand new
Less than one year old
Didn't fit the mold
Hard to be judged
For unseen brains
Surrounded by people
On the train

Something about this body
Made them disregard
Whether or not
She was actually marred

But sweet
On the inside
The mutt
Keeps roaming
From street to street

Not even a chance
For a second glance
She walks through the crowd
The silence is loud
Ignoring the fact
She's being ignored
She's not interested
But she's not bored
It seems she's winning
A different race
If you catch a glimpse
Of the smile on her face

Sweet on the inside
The mutt keeps roaming
From street to street

Always the decay of filth
Under the sheen of surface
You are forced to tread

Mass evolves into design
See how the opalescent hue shines
See how it shines

Spinning around

He tries to drive in his lane
But never reads between the lines
He likes his days the same
But fails to question why

Buzz got killed
Buzz got killed

Walking, he starts to feel a beat
Humming in time with his feet
Although the melody's taste was sweet
He didn't look as he crossed the street

Buzz got killed
Buzz got killed
Buzz got killed
Buzz got killed

With eyes so big, still he didn't see
The runaway steam roller
The bus and piano, made three
Everyone thought that it was all over

Eyes bulging, he pushes them back in
Then he stands up and again begins
With his incessant humming nothing seeps in
If only he could see past his own skin

Has something underneath
Will the scene be taken
From right beneath your feet?

Bear in hope
That skin will trade
Grope the tightrope
As you feel the blade

Who is this girl?
She has that special sheen
She's got that whirl
Who knows what she's seen

Who is this being
Behind the mask?
Who's really scared?
No one ever asks

Bare in hope
Of love to be made
Grope the cold pole
Until the darkness fades

A newer town
With fresh faces
Some search for life
In all the wrong places

Not that they'd
Remember the faces
Or even recognize
Their only traces

Of ever having been here at all...
Of ever having been here at all...
Of ever having been here at all...

In all candor
I must tell you, Panda
There are far too few
Who have the radiance of you

Bear alone
In a fancy disguised cage
Stand against the background
Like writing on the page

All the different people
Have come here today
To watch you move your body
In a certain way

Every single one
Is willing to pay
One last look,
Should you slip away

Made ice for his friends
The frozen delights never end
A vision hit him once or twice

Only wanted to make some ice
Dependent on a sacrifice
Only want to make ice
For what it's worth, he saved the Earth

As we walk, I feel the grip of your hand
A breeze takes along the cool air
The sunlight slips from the end of land
Still there's something more here

Listen, as the sound decays
Even the most vibrant things will fade

Over the water comes a beautiful strain
It attaches inside and becomes ingrained
A beauty so powerful, it causes pain
Sound so true, how can it wane?

The day is at its close
As for tomorrow, it never knows
Take in the beauty of the rose
All you can before it goes

Listen, as the sound decays
Even the most vibrant things will fade

Time to travel the rest of the road
But, with two together, there's more shade
Even when we feel the weight of the load
Still the glow on the inside is what should never fade..

Lit by a blue moon

The voices of the young
Ring out but are gone in an instant

The light makes white patterns
On the black lawn

The cotton in the grass
Makes a good bed for all the bodies

The silky seeds from the trees
Fall like slow rain

Chorus:
Sing your watery song
As the days grow long

Verse 2:
The beginning of the heat
Stirs something inside

Afflicted with the disease
Of the wind, of the mind

Cut a path through the dead branches
To view the end of the day

What is the dirt that covers the land?
Organic decay mingling with sand
Standing on the surface that's barely crusted
Magically, majestically maladjusted

Flashbacks that flash-forward instead
Looking around and listening
To the thoughts inside their heads
Lie outside, assume we're all inbred

Worldwide bloodspill
Global Nazi landfill

A summer snowfall
The smell and taste of
The scentless, tasteless fallout
The sweet flavor in doubt
Find a drink in the pan-drought
If you run, will it pan out?
Or is it the same, if you just stand out,
And wait
For the darkness to come;
Complete eclipse of the sun

The world quickly dims and fades
Did it really have to end this way?
The world quickly dims and fades
Did it really have to end this way?

Your eyes focus on
The many different paths
No need to go slow
When you want to go fast

You want to tell us everything
You're already beginning to sing

So much life in such
A beautiful little girl
Wonder what will be
Your place in this world?

You're trying to make sense
Of the world beyond the fence

Filled with yesterday's sorrows

Buried in sand

On a mountaintop in the mind
Try to find a way to reach tomorrow

In the future
We'll wish we changed

There had to be a whole new scene
The only way was to make the big move
To escape to the far perimeter
Of a world that might have been

Buy the ticket, take the ride
Time to choose, now or later
Take no pleasure in being right
Not what you want to hear
No more swimming, no more walking

So much, then, for the road
Well, at least, I'll know
I was there, knee deep
In the madness
Before the deal

Buy the ticket, take the ride
Rain is poison, sex is death
Some get rich, others die
No more fun, no more games

We speak with our lights
Early on summer nights

Sounding out the magic code
Illuminating attraction ode,

Spinning around and around
More and more tightly wound

Could you come and dance with me?
Hovering under leaves and trees
Flying over the browns and greens
Only each other's eyes we see

On these warm evenings we dance
Playing games of love and chance
Swirlling we move together
We have our moment, not forever

We never, ever make a sound
Is this love we have found?
We each find a path, then we meet
Wavering between grass and leaves
Flashing with the desire to be seen
Hidden kiss under the trees

Such a random intersection
If you happen to see the attraction
-the attraction

Spinning around and around
More and more tightly wound

We never, ever make a sound
Is this loves we have found?
Only each other do we see
Floating in the spaces between
Hovering on the edge of dreams
Won't you come and dance with me?
Won't you come and dance with me?

Awaiting the fatal tone

The track runs in a figure-eight
Condemned to another lap
To see before your eyes
The chemistry that fills the gap

Every day I face this attack
But it's time to expose an unseen fact
Do you suppose that you know
How it flows?
But I can shift the beat,
And let it repeat,
Regardless of the color of my meat
The beat is in the mind
Where you find
You bind your very soul
To a pole of fear -
You could raise the bar,
but you make it a spear
One of us becomes our very dear
Stereotypes of old
No one race can hold the deed on soul
So get out of the hole
Of the racist mole
Time to sculpt a brand new mold

The figure-eight continues on
Exhausted, you run beyond
Of all of the unknown
Strength that you tap
As you hope for another lap

The track runs in a figure-eight
Condemned to another lap
To see before your eyes
The chemistry that fills the gap

You suppose that you know
How it flows?
But I can shift the beat,
And let it repeat,
Regardless of the color of my meat
The beat is in the mind

You bind your very soul

Track Name: Men Of Steel (Original Version)
Men Of Steel
===========

If the telephone rings at 3am
You know it's trouble
Your stuff is always ready
You're out the door in minutes
You know someone is threatening
To jump off your bridge

Men of steel they're called
Men of steel they're called
Rivet wrestlers
Cowboys in the sky...

We're the only ones
Dumb enough to do it,
In fact we're the only ones
With enough equipment,
Knowledge of the bridge,
And courage to go over the rail

Men of steel they're called
Men of steel they're called
Rivet wrestlers
Cowboys in the sky...

(Raga)
If you're an iron worker on the Golden Gate Bridge and the telephone rings at 3am, you know it's trouble. You know someone is threatening to jump off your bridge. Your stuff is always ready; you're out the door in minutes.

If you aren't too late, you climb out onto the cold steel and try to talk some lost soul off the beam or wrestle him or her to safety.

Many suicide attempts are impulsive; lives can be salvaged. But if you fail, if the person jumps into that bottomless fog, "there's no describing how helpless you feel," says Ken Hopper, a Golden Gate Bridge iron-worker for 17 years.

Men of called, they're called. They fix and maintain the world's most amazing tinker-toy. But, what qualifies these rivet-wrestlers to perform the delicate psychological task of suicide prevention? "We're the only ones dumb enough to do it," says Hopper, a bear of a guy with a bushy mustache and a sensitive side. In fact, they're the only ones with enough equipment, knowledge of the bridge, and courage to go over the rail.

Suicide rescue duty is voluntarily, but the bridge's iron-workers all take their turns. Sometimes a police psychologist will be at the scene, more often the rescuers are on their own.

"Suicide prevention experts have come to give us seminars," Hopper says. "They talk to these people on the phone. We deal with them face to face."

Often a would-be jumper is locked in a private mental zone and the trick is to get his or her attention. Some tricks that have worked:
"Hey, if you're going to jump, at least give me your mom's phone number so i can call her to tell her.";
"That's a nice watch, if you're going to jump, can i have it?"

Sometimes all it takes is the voice of a human who cares:
"Look, I've been through some hard times myself. I know it's possible to get help."

Hopper estimates he's rescued about 30 people, and lost three. The losses haunt him. Hopper once talked down an 18 year old college student. The next morning, while at a press conference to announce a new bridge suicide prevention program, the same teenager walked back onto the bridge and jumped.

Another time, Hopper arrived at a rescue just in time to see a man fling his two year old daugher off the bridge, and then jump, himself.

"Once in a great while," Hopper says, "one of the guys will get a note from someone they talked down. It's a treasure; it's like gold." Usually there's no follow-up, no closure. Hopper says that's a sore spot; you help save a life, he says, you become involved in that life.

A few years ago, it all got to be too much for Hopper. He had his name removed from the rescue call list and underwent therapy. As soon as he felt like he had a handle on things again, he put his name back on the list.
"It got to the point, it was more difficult NOT to do it."

Face the coming light
No path to be found

Confused in twilight
Caught in the headlights
Shadows in your eyes

Afraid in the dark
Turned around

Find north
Understand
The unevenness
Of land

Feel your body sinking
Under grains of sand
Floating -
Searching -
For any shore to land

Find your way
A path on the ground
When time delivers
The full daylight

And the world keeps on spinning
Living -
Turning 'round

(and that's just the beginning)

Can't find a helping hand
Drownin' in this barren land
So much for my plans
A millionth time to begin again
Everywhere I see my hourglass
Runnin' low on sand

Either way, it's not right
Slowly you'll start to feel
You'll fall out of sight

Nightmares fill my sleep
I need to unwind
Then I wake up to find
I've wasted so much precious time
I'm closer than ever
To my deadline

I don't have the time
For this standin' still line
Heart in search for signs
The peace inside I cannot find
'Til I'm dead meat on a line
But, did I make my deadline?

Although it seems blurred
Just where is it drawn?
Which way will it drift?
Repair the rift,

Blanket of security
Information in weave
The power of a notion
The backdrop deceives

Static has a feel
The strongest bond is as fragile as
Paper thin glass

Some things are real -

The backdrop's energy
The power of a notion
Blanket in weave
The security of information
A person deceives

There is a line
Although it seems curved

Trying to cross an ocean
Searching for a notion
Trying to cross a notion
Searching for an ocean

Blanket of energy
A person's security
Weave of information
The backdrop deceives
The power of a notion
Track Name: No Creature Feature (Demo; Original Speed)
No Creature Feature
================

No feature
Will be shown tonight
No creature
Will come from the ocean now

No story tonight is told
Of the smart, lucky and bold
No cities destroyed
Projector unemployed

No costume
Can hide the beast inside
But volume
Can drown out their ugly sound

No teacher
Will be shown what's right
No preacher
Will be thrown to the ocean now

What's seen as an image
Has something underneath
Will the scene be taken
From right beneath your feet?
Track Name: Coldwater (Demo; Bass/Piano Loud)
Coldwater
========

Sometime in early night
Crossing town
They approached the light

Everything seems all right

It turned green, thay didn't have a clue
Without looking both ways
They started through

Everything seems all right

The other cars were sitting tight
Everybody knows
She runs the lights

Everything seemed all right...
Track Name: Master Of All Rationalizations
Master Of All Rationalizations
=======================

For lunch he gets an hour
Usually at the diner's lunch counter
Heart-smart platter between the silver

Fattening fare, yet he cares about food
But today having cake and eating it too

Insert the right thoughts
In your head
Make sure those thoughts
Don't follow you to bed

Starts housework when she returns from work
Always makes sure there's coffee to perk
There with a smile, never a smirk

Everyone says she's such a nice girlfriend
They don't know violence is waiting at night's end

But the world's a better place
As long as your head's in the right space
If you have all the answers to the questions
Then you're the master of all rationalizations

He sits at his desk while others preserve order
Dreams of his golf game where he beats his brother
He must be president of something or other

Translates the language of corporations
But he's the master of all rationalizations

Insert the right filter
In front of the lens
Prepare for the litter
When the daydream ends
Track Name: Upon The Dull Earth (Guitar & Drums mix)
Upon The Dull Earth (4/4/8)
======================

Time
Out of joint
The cosmic puppets
The crack in space

Eye
In the sky
The penultimate truth
We can build you

Counter-clock world
A maze of death
Flow my tears,
The policeman said
-confessions-
Of a crap artist
Dr. Bloodmoney
The man in the high castle

The unteleported man

Martian
Time slip
Now wait
For last year

Solar lottery
-do androids dream
Of electric sheep?
Track Name: Graphic Heart
Graphic Heart 5/13/8
===================

You rip out my heart
You throw it on the ground
It lies there in the dirt
We both look down at it
Is it still beating?

Can you play / the part?
Or do you aim / the dart?
Will you create the art,
Or tear / apart
My graphic heart?

I staged a stand off today
But no one came
Held my heart for ransom trade
But no one paid

You asked / for / a raincheck
But it's supposed / to rain / tomorrow
Wonder if / all that water
Will wash away / my sorrow?

It beats in your hands
Red drops in the dirt
Without making demands
You ask for my hurt
We both look down at it
It's out of the cage
This graphic heart

Do you aim / the dart?
Can you play / the part?
Will you create the art
Or tear / apart
My graphic heart

Do you create the dart?
Play the art? Aim the part?
Torn at the start
The two sides, one part
Out of its cage
This graphic heart
Track Name: Thud (Alternate Version; All Tina Vocals)
Thud
=====

Out in the new world
Everything is so big
Unaware of danger
You cross over the bridge
Do you think it's a good idea
To stop and look over the edge?

If you fall for me, will you land on your feet?

Peering down below
It doesn't look so far
The place I want to be
How is it to be there?
Only the sweetest spot on Earth
As long as I'm in your arms (dear)

If I fall for you, do I land on my feet?

I could follow you
Winding the lonely road
We would walk hand in hand
Wide-eyed we go alone

If we fall, do we have to land at all?
