Track Name: Luminary
Artichoke, you're a soldier with your armor green,
tender heart, you're a soldier with your armor green,
I see right through but I can't think of why you'd be hiding behind those leaves,
hiding behind those leaves.

Tiger striped, you're an animal so fierce and tall,
gentle eyes are a window through the fortress wall,
window through the leaves, window through the leaves,
window through the fortress wall.

Gentle friend, I am puzzled by these games with you,
illusion, let me have a taste of the green truth.

Artichoke, you're a soldier with your armor green,
tender heart, you're a soldier with your armor green,
I see right through but I can't think of why you'd be hiding behind those leaves,
hiding behind those leaves.
Track Name: Overboard
Whisper, whisper shrill, so sharp and cold
sailors rocking in the sheltered hold,
you wake up from a dream
of whooping cranes and ships with wings,

With timeless rhythm you are washed with light,
eardrums, pupils fight the sweet invite
escaping into a dream
of nimbus clouds on yoyo strings

Is it overboard to say, "don't tempt me I will crash if I stray!"
if your sweet lips sing no words, I'll die from the silence heard.
aaaaaahhh aaaaahhhh

Whisper, whisper wind, a buoyant plea
mist like drapes blankets the swelling seas,
you wake up from a dream
of whooping cranes and ships with wings
Track Name: Lady Madonna
Lady Madonna, children at your feet
wonder how you manage to make ends meet
who finds the money when you pay the rent
did the say that money was heaven sent
did they tell you money was heaven sent

Lady Madonna, laying on the bed,
listen to the music playing in your head.
Track Name: Palm Song
Your palm is a landscape with hills and valleys
and people live there with gladness in their hearts

My hands are a god's hands and I run my fingertips
across the pine tree tops and through the streams

Your palm is a peach I picked because it's soft
and when I take a bite on top of the next hill
I savor the strange sweetness and closeness
of you
