Shine-Hints, Allegations, & Things Left Unsaid (1993), 7even Year Itch (2001)


VERSE 1:
Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find?
Lay me on the ground
And fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find?

CHORUS:
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.

VERSE 2:
Love is in the water
Love is in the air
Show me where to go
Tell me will love be there?
Teach me how to speak
Teach me how to share
Teach me where to go
Tell me will love be there?

CHORUS:
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.

REPEAT VERSE 1:
Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find?
Lay me on the ground
And fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find?

CHORUS:
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.
Oh, heaven let your light shine down.

The World I Know-Collective Soul (1995), 7even Year Itch (2001)


VERSE 1:
Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on.

I drink myself of newfound pity,
Sittin' alone in New York City
And I don't know why.

VERSE 2:
Are we listening
To hymns of offering?
Have we eyes to see
That love is gathering?

All the words that I am reading
Have now started the act of bleeding
Into one. Into one.

CHORUS:
So I walk up on high,
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
Cause it's The World I Know. Oh, it's The World I Know.

REPEAT PART OF VERSE 1:
I drink myself of newfound pity
Sittin' alone in New York City
And I don't know why. Don't know why.

CHORUS:
So I walk up on high,
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
Cause it's The World I Know. Oh, it's The World I Know.

And I walk up on high,
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
Cause it's The World I Know. Oh, it's The World I Know.

December-Collective Soul (1995), 7even Year Itch (2001)

VERSE 1:
Don't drink the water from my hand
Contagious as you think I am.
Just tilt my sun to a trip domain
Your cup runneth over again.

CHORUS:
Don't scream about.
Don't think aloud.
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
Don't worry now.
Don't speak of doubt.
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.

VERSE 2:
Don't follow me to a higher ground.
Lost as you swear I am.
Don't throw away your basic needs-
Ambiance and vanity.

CHORUS:
Don't scream about.
Don't think aloud.
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
Don't worry now.
Don't speak of doubt.
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.

December promise you gave unto me.
December whispers of treachery.
December clouds are now covering me.
December songs no longer I sing.
December promise you gave unto me.
December whispers of treachery.
December clouds are now covering me.
December songs no longer I sing.

Don't scream about. Don't think aloud.
(December promise you gave unto me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December whispers of treachery.)
Don't worry now. Don't speak of doubt.
(December clouds are now covering me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December songs no longer I sing.)
Don't scream about. Don't think aloud.
(December promise you gave unto me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December whispers of treachery.)
Don't worry now. Don't speak of doubt.
(December clouds are now covering me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December songs no longer I sing.)
Don't scream about. Don't think aloud.
(December promise you gave unto me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December whispers of treachery.)
Don't worry now. Don't speak of doubt.
(December clouds are now covering me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December songs no longer I sing.)
Don't scream about. Don't think aloud.
(December promise you gave unto me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December whispers of treachery.)
Don't worry now. Don't speak of doubt.
(December clouds are now covering me.)
Turn your head and now baby just spit me out.
(December songs no longer I sing.)

Where the River Flows-Collective Soul (1995)

VERSE 1:
Give me a moment
Got to get this weight up off my chest.
Don't feed me sorrow
Pain is a poison I digest.

CHORUS:
Find yourself another soul to hold,
You think, you thought, I know!
Off upon my journey I must go
To Where the River Flows, to Where the River Flows.

VERSE 2:
I'll give you answers
To the questions you have yet to ask.
Silence is beauty
Words, they only complicate the task.

CHORUS:
Find yourself another soul to hold,
You think, you thought, I know!
Off upon my journey I must go
To Where the River Flows, to Where the River Flows.

VERSE 3:
Make no more wishes
All of my patience has been spent.
Gods of the season
Lead me to my next incident.

CHORUS:
Find yourself another soul to hold,
You think, you thought, I know!
Off upon my journey I must go
To Where the River Flows, to Where the River Flows, to Where the River Flows.

Precious Declaration-Disciplined Breakdown (1997), 7even Year Itch (2001)

VERSE 1:
Hitched a ride to the peaceful side of town.
Then proceeded where thieves are no longer found.
Ooh. Can't crash now.
Cause I've been waiting for this.
Ooh. Won't crash now.
I've found some encouragement

CHORUS:
Cause Precious Declaration reads
"Yours is yours and mine you leave alone now."
Precious Declaration says
"I believe our hope is dead no longer."

VERSE 2:
New meanings to the words I feed upon.
Wake within my brains elements of freedom.
Ooh. Can't break now.
Cause I've been waiting for this.
Ooh. Won't break now.
I'm cleansed with hopefulness.

CHORUS:
Cause Precious Declaration reads
"Yours is yours and mine you leave alone now."
Precious Declaration says
"I believe our hope is dead no longer."

Once I've jumped through hoops of fire.
As high and far as you require.
I was blind but now I see
Salvation helps describing me.

CHORUS:
Precious Declaration reads
"Yours is yours and mine you leave alone now."
Precious Declaration says
"I believe our hope is dead no longer."
Precious Declaration reads
"Yours is yours and mine you leave alone now."
Precious Declaration says
"I believe our hope is dead no longer."

Listen-Disciplined Breakdown (1997), 7even Year Itch (2001)

VERSE 1:
You're now thirsty
Walking in the desert all alone
You're now searching
Lost in isolation from your soul
The bullets you bite
From the pain you request
You're finding harder to digest
And the answers you seek
Are the ones you destroy
You're anger's well deployed

CHORUS:
Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere.

VERSE 2:
You now hunger
Feeding your mind with selfishness
You now wander
Aimlessly around your consciousness
When your prophecies fail
And your thoughts become weak
Your silence creates
Necessity
And you're clothing yourself
In the shields of despair
Your courage now impaired

CHORUS:
Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere.

You crucify all honesty
No signs you see do you believe
And all your words just twist and turn
Reviving just to crash and burn.
You're fighting til the better end
If only your heart could open
Open and listen.

CHORUS:
Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everwhere.
Why can't you listen?
Why can't you hear?
Why can't you listen
As love screams everwhere.

She Said-"Scream 2" Soundtrack (1998), Dosage (1999), 7even Year Itch (2001)

VERSE 1:
She said that time is unfair
To a woman her age
Now wisdom has come
Everything else fades
She said she realizes
She's seen better days
She said she can't look back
To her days of youth
What she thought were lies
She later found what truth.
She said her daddy had dreams
But he drank them away
And her mother's to blame
For the way she is today.

CHORUS:
Life's river shall rise
She said
And only the strong shall survive
She said
But I'm feeling quite weak
She said
Will you comfort and forgive me?
She said

VERSE 2:
She said she's still searching
For salvation's light
She said she wishes all day
And she she prays all night
She said she won't speak of love
Because love she's never known
She said it's moments like these
She hates to be alone

CHORUS:
Life's river shall rise
She said
And only the strong shall survive
She said
But I'm feeling quite weak
She said
Will you comfort and forgive me?
She said

Forgive me
She said
Forgive me
She said
