Active Child See Thru Eyes

She threw her arms around my neck

Whispered softly in a foreign tongue

Her eyes were see-through

Tell me your secrets

We drove my car into the night

Turned the corner and the streets were wet

I couldn’t see you

Tell me your secrets

Tonight

Tonight

Tonight

Tonight

When we awoke the room was bright

Her body glistened in the morning light

And now i see you

I know your secrets

Tonight

Tonight

Tonight

Tonight

Active Child She Was A Vision

I came home

To an empty house

Surrendered my thoughts

And then I passed out

As the world

Spinning round

She looked pale

As she lifted off the ground

And she said to me

Don’t go

Don’t go

And she said to me

Don’t go

Don’t go

I stood there

With my jaw on the ground

Lost my composure

But I didn’t make a sound

Oh it’s strange

How we disappear

One day

We’re just no longer here

As she said to me

Don’t go

Don’t go

And she said to me

Don’t go

Don’t go

And she said to me

Active Child Never Far Away

Coldest water breaks over my soul

Let this heart just beat like your own

Because you’re never far away

Even when you’re far away, I promise

You’re always on mind

It’s like I’m with you all the time

You showed me what it is to feel love

And you took me far above the rest

Coldest water breaks over my soul

Let this heart just beat like your own

Because you’re never far away

Even when you’re far away, I promise

Because you’re never far away

Even when you’re far away, I promise

No I’m never leaving, I don’t have a reason

You keep believing in our love, we’ll only keep it

You give me the strength to hold on

You’re always on mind

It’s like I’m with you all the time

You showed me what it is to feel love

And you took me far above the rest

Active Child Cruel World

I dedicate my life to something richer

And all the things that come

‘Cause that’s no price at all

And I know you’ll be there

And I want you to know I care because

Keep your head up, hold your head up even though

It’s a cruel world

Count your blessing you won’t need them when you’re gone

It’s a cruel world

You can’t see it you can’t see it even though

It’s a cruel world

We’re thrown into this life no raft no savior

Masked in self contempt and wrapped in cotton cloth

And it’s just like a prayer

The way you showed me you care to be there and because

Keep your head up, hold your head up even though

It’s a cruel world

Count your blessing you won’t need them when you’re gone

It’s a cruel world

You can’t see it you can’t see it even though

It’s a cruel world

Active Child Playing House

Just cause it feels good…

This is getting tough, sitting here waiting for you,

And I think you’ve had enough, cause I know it’s hard,

This is going on, going on for way too long,

I think you wanna know, I just can’t wait

Ooh, I’m trying to find you,

Ooh, I’m trying to reach you girl

I don’t even know, just what I want

Ooh, I’m trying to find you,

Ooh, I’m trying to reach you girl

I don’t even know, just what I want

Maybe we’re just playing house,

Just cause it feels good

Baby we’re just playing house,

Just cause it feels good

That don’t make it good for anybody,

Don’t wanna be in love just with anybody,

I’m tired being just Mr. Anybody,

So baby come with me, let’s just make a body

Between us, I need you to see me,

Girl been waiting, please tell me you need it

When you go I will always be there,

Ooh, I’m trying to find you,

Ooh, I’m trying to reach you girl

I don’t even know, just what I want

Ooh, I’m trying to find you,

Ooh, I’m trying to reach you girl

I don’t even know, just what I want

Maybe we’re just playing house,

Just cause it feels good

Just cause it feels good

Just cause it feels good

Just cause it feels good…

Just cause it feels good…

Active Child Subtle

I took a hit of your love and held it deep inside

And calculated the reasons you keep me satisfied

All for you

It’s like this noose is our love, around my neck so tight

I think I’m losing consciousness

I think I’m losing my mind for you

But in the middle of what we had was gone

We cannot falter now, no

Even when I’m gone away

You won’t ever see this throne

It’s where you rest your head

Oh lord it feels so nice

You’ve got me paralyzed baby

You, you won’t ever be alone

You won’t ever see it again, no

Unless you ring the alarm

You, you won’t ever be

The beat goes

On and on forever

As the beat goes on we’re haunted by the sound

Boom boom, broken heart

Ghost of a lover gone

Aww I don’t wanna be apart, girl

I don’t wanna sing that song

But the beat goes

On and on forever

Like a record on repeat comes back around

Boom boom, got that spark

Eyes of a lover caught

Aww you don’t wanna be alone, girl

Dancing in the dark

Because I want you to know

I still believe we can never make it alone

Even when you kept deceiving me

I knew that we’d always grow

Because after it all

We gotta move on, yeah we gotta stay strong

Like the beat of this song, like the beat of this song

Oh we’re living in a world where love is the goal

We’ve living in a world where love is ending

Oh lord it feels so nice

You’ve got me paralyzed baby

You, you won’t ever be alone

You won’t ever see it again, no

Unless you ring the alarm

You, you won’t ever be

Active Child I’m In Your Church At Night

Climb the fence and in thru the side door

Past the sarcophagi laid down on the dirt floor

There we were holding hands

Singing thru the hole in the ceiling

Into the heavens

I’m in your church at night

Singing, hallelujah at the top of my lungs

No one spoke as our voices rose

Stars were shining and so were our souls

But now its just memory burnt in my brain

The power that we felt that night will never be explained

Im in your church at night

Singing, hallelujah at the top of my lungs

Active Child High Priestess

What you gonna do when you get back home?

Get a job?

Pull your weight now?

What you gonna do when she sees through your eyes?

And through your lies?

Can you tell me?

What you gonna do when she calls your name?

Oh high priestess, can you help me?

What you gonna do when you get outta jail?

Oh high priestess, can you save me?

And listen to my prayer

Listen to my prayer…

What you gonna do when you get back home?

From a slow, long journey

Priestess sitting up on a golden throne

She says no

You better get what you came for

And listen to yourself

Listen to your…

Active Child Wilderness

Build your ship, let’s go out

In the wilderness we’ll run wild

It’s so cold but you know we belong here

Shout to the sky and a fire to keep us warm here

Build your ship, move down south

In the wilderness we’ll run wild

It’s so cold but you know we belong here

When we escape to that place we’ll be home, dear

It’s so cold but you know we belong here

Shout to the sky, and a fire to keep us warm here
