You said I should be myself a dangerous thing to do Cos I've developed a tendency to speak the truth It's no use being a recluse forgive me if I'm a little uncouth I'm one hundred percent original A student of the art of falling apart I've taken my own wise counsel on this matter and I've decided that it's ok to do it this way. You said I should trust my intuition a dangerous thing to do, Cos my intuition tells me there is something going on Bold and strong, like an old song you can't tell me I'm wrong You said I should follow my feelings a dangerous thing to do, Cos my feelings say let's get close and play Don't delay, do it today feel the fear and go for it anyway You said I shouldn't listen to advice the worst thing you could have done Now you couldn't possibly stop me going for goal number one I'm in control of my own soul no time left for playing a role I'm one hundred percent original a master of the art of falling apart I've taken my own wise counsel on this matter and I've decided that it's ok to do it this way.

I wanna crumble into your dust Drown in your seas Burn up with your desire Blow away in your breeze. The chattering stones and gurgling streams The warmth of the sun and the caressing breeze You are my Blood, Blood Mother. Red is the colour of the river of life Black is your body there are stars in your eyes Deep in your womb my spirit is sleeping Deep in my heart your spirit is stirring Put it in the pot fill the thing up You know there's enough to fill everyone's cup (up) Blood Mother. --- Little boy sitting at the window Watching the world go by Somewhere out in Srebrenica Another boy has to die Watching the sky as the clouds turn to rain Wondering if it has to be this way Again and again Chorus: Cailleagh... Mother of all The night crow comes To show us our world Cailleagh... come when we call The night crow comes To purify our souls. /us all (on last verse) Mama crow sitting on the rooftop Watches the world with one eye Spreading out her feathered wings She utters a warning cry Look deep within to investigate the cause She will change everything, we can but do That which is ours.

Caught up in the mud Just sludging around I'm achieving terminal velocity Going to break new ground There's a drunk boy, coat slung overhead To keep the raining raining down The bottle's nearly empty But there's nearly enough to drown all my sorrows You'll never drown I thought I tried and I waited But I should have known, I should have known all along We'll never make any more than this We could never fake it now If this is heaven Right here, right now We'd better give it all we've got Cos forever is a long, long time to be waiting You'll never drown So just let go

We are the winds that are changing We are the spark in the dark On the tides of emotion Dance your dreaming awake We are the twinkle in the eye of all creation The heart of the atom, we're devotion in motion We are the winds that are changing We are the spark in the dark On the tides of emotion Dance your dreaming awake Dance the dream awake dream your dance awake you beautiful dreamers

Man in the moon, it's not too soon to come down, Let mama be the bread-winner and I will cook dinner, I'll be your clown. We're mining for starlight, digging up the moonlight, you too are one. Swimming in colleges to the ancient philosophies, diving right down to the heart of the sun. Oh yeah I'm going down, down where the stars grow, Down where the wind blows, My garden is overgrown and there are fairies in the greenhouse And they're mining for starlight. I sit on your belly O sister fair I'm watching you brother sky, there are clouds in your hair.
