Music is my weapon When the bombs are gonna blow Music is my weapon Might not seem like it’ll hold But music is my weapon Of choice of mass creation My transportation to every nation To every heart that pains like mine To every soul that feels it’s time To step across the line With music as my weapon
2.
You remind me of the friend I knew quite well Still captivated by your charm and captive in your spell And things have changed over the years but one thing’s been insured I’ve come to know you come and go like migratory birds I get a feeling when I look into your eyes And every word I say and hear sounds like goodbye It might as well be with all that has occurred I’ve come to know you come and go like migratory birds Maybe you’ll come back one Spring You’ll have a family to bring And we can hold each other’s hands and sink our footprints in the sand And talk about our strange strange dreams where you fly So from here on I’ll wait upon a chance to say hello I’ll watch the skies and point my eyes to where the good winds blow And you will hear I’m missing you with every single word And I will hear your need to fly like migratory birds

Hurricane 04:20
The hurricane hit a year ago and nothing's been the same we feel with our mouths we talk with our eyes and we've forgotten each other's names the kitchen's in the bedroom now and the kids are in the sink they bath themselves with paper towels and draw their clothes in ink and we call ourselves a family Chorus: I look to the mirror when I kiss your face I close my eyes and we are traveling through space Back to Earth the tide of moons and seasons on the brink Night to blue like I to you revealing shades of pink there's nothing left for me to say there's nothing left unsaid you're every song I've ever played, you're every book I've read And I call this my reality Chorus

Strung from one end of the tent to the other on this side's a friend, on that side's a lover I can't see clear from way up here I'm seeing double Twist of the rope and I'm into the tumble I perfectly land in a cup full of mumbles of how I feel and what I said and what I kept to myself I am the tight rope walker, I am the clown I am the elephant train parading around thinking where do you fall in this? where do you fall? You've got the eyes and I keep the secrets' in a box that I've labeled "believe it or not" could it be simplicity or a pandora last time I saw you we talked and I said "you don't deserve all the muck in my head" but you opened up, and you let it in, and I realized I am the cannonball hero, I am the clown I am the Japanese tiger pacing around Thinking where do you fall in this? where do you fall? You'll always be the tear in my pocket there for me all the times that I lost it I'll think of you, and when I do I'll feel lighter I am the cannonball hero, I am the clown I am the elephant train parading around I am the Japanese tiger, I am the clown I am the tight rope walker walking around Thinking where do you fall in this? where do you fall?

Aaah 02:56
Been looking for love I've been searching for it Been looking all over town Been looking for love I've been searching for it For that elusive you, hear me out Chorus: Aaah, hey yeah Done looked up, done looked down done looked all around paid my dues to make this sound so won't you won't you hear me out Chorus Would you say you're a needle in a hay stack or would you say you're a pink elephant? I can only pray that you're some sort of pay back for all the precious time I spent looking for love, searching for it looking all over town looking for love I've been searching for it for that elusive you, hear me out Chorus credits

In a forgotten room In a forgotten house In a used up cocoon will you still love me like you once did? And I know that it's hard to forgive what's become of us but it might be a start will you still love me like you once did? I am still a butterfly flying through your heart every face is a flower to love, to love to love, to love to love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you too Ring around the rosie a pocket full of posie ashes ashes ashes and wings credits
