Track Name: Mona Lisa's Secret
Mona Lisa wouldn't
tell you what her smile is about
Mona Lisa had to laugh
and couldn't let it out
from behind closed lips
i see it shinning out
Mona Lisa you could tell me
you and I would have been friendly
we share a secret I see upon your face
the world's a funny place

I wonder if she had a lover who was kind
it might explain the simlar expression hers and mine
behind a canvass face it's my own I find
Mona Lisa you could tell me
you and I would have been friendly
we share a secret I see upon your face
the world's a funny place

Mona Lisa did you make love the morning that you posed
was it hard to stumble out of bed and find your clothes
your painted eyes speak as one who knows
Mona Lisa you could tell me
you and I would have been friendly
we share a secret I see upon your face
the world's a funny place
Track Name: Decades
if i told you i love you
would it make you turn away
if i said i don't need you
could you settle down and stay
i don't why you feel you have to run away

the morning's unbroken
by the early rays of light
all is unspoken left to me to say goodbye
i don't know who you are between the lies

in a couple years you'll say you were the strong one
in a couple years you'll say i was the wrong one
for a decade i have given you my life at what price

i fold my hands like mourners embracing in your wake
and cry for the children and their innocent mistake
they don't know why you took yourself away

in a couple years you'll claim that you were blameless
in a couple years i'll know that you were shameless
for a decade i have given you my life at what price

10 year flew I never really knew you
10 years come and gone
I never really knew something was wrong

in a couple years you'll say you want to hold me
in a couple years I'll turn away coldly
for a decade I have given you my life
too great a price
for a decade I have given you my life
too great a price
Track Name: Prayers
Prayers


Wishes are confetti, Prayers are rice
Feed the birds and the field mice
Sustenance like this
Knows no price
Wishes are confetti
Prayers, prayers are rice

She grew up in a harbour town
With the rain and hail coming down
Learned of hunger and poverty
An intimate friend of the face of need

Chorus

He grew up on the city street
The feel of concrete on his feet
Learned deception, he learned of greed
An unkind companion to empathy

Chorus

Feed your children well
On bended knee
Find liberty
Feed your soul unseen
There is no greater hunger
There is no greater hunger

Chorus
Track Name: Indigo Blue
My photograph doesn't mean anything to you
your heart's a drum hollow the rain can't get through
use to tell me you loved while polishing your shoes
till they shined with your relfection to throw your words back at you
while i worked overtime you paid me my due
paid the rent for my residence in a hotel room
painted indigo blue

Days go by and I find
that i don't really mind
that all the passion and pain are only
photographs in frames on the walls painted
indigo blue

This diamond right didn't do anything for me
enslaves my hand makes it ached to be free
use to tell me you needed while combing your hair
watching your reflection i wonder what i ever saw there
while i watched our children grow you treated me fair
made the payment for our residence a suburban house
painted indigo blue

years go by and it seems
nightmares lurk inside of deams
and wishes and prayers turn to scratches and tears
on a heart
painted indigo blue

indigo blue
