When it’s time to feel the pain
Your tears will cleanse you
Feed the flame
When the howling wind sings his name
Sing that harmony
You’ll see him again, I mean it

Sing that long refrain
Your song won’t ever end
Hear it come alive
‘Cause now you’re here with him

Right here temporarily (heartbeat)
So very unsteadily (like a breeze)
Flutters off back towards the sea (lonely)
Next time please take me

When the howling wind sings his name
Sing that harmony
You’ll see him again, believe me

Sing that long refrain
Your song won’t ever end
Hear it come alive
‘Cause now you’re here with him

Right here temporarily (heartbeat)
So very unsteadily (like a breeze)
Flutters off back towards the sea (lonely)
Next time please take me

When you left, you took most of me
Now you’re gone, take the rest of me
I don’t know, but I know probably
That there’s no one else for me

Right here temporarily (heartbeat)
So very unsteadily (like a breeze)
Flutters off back towards the sea (lonely)
Next time please take me

“Lately” Lyrics

Roaming Dragons

Lately
In the gardens and the trees
Blossoms and the leaves
Pollinating bees
Lately
I’ve been noticing these things
Everything I see
Everything it breathes
Ribbon in my soul and skin
Sun with the rain when we begin

Carry like a river all my love
Carry like the wind carries a dove
Hold it in your hand
Release it above
Set it all free, baby (2x)

One day
When you’ve long become a ghost
An echo at the coast
A little more than most
I listen
Through the whipping of the wind
I list the things I’ve been
That I’ll never be again
Ribbon in my soul and skin
Sun with rain when we begin

Carry like a river all my love
Carry like the wind carries a dove
Hold it in your hand
Release it above
Set it all free, baby (2x)

(Melodica solo)

Carry like a river all my love
Carry like the wind carries a dove
Hold it in your hand
Release it above
Set it all free, baby (2x)

“Flavors (Hoag’s Mix)” Lyrics

Coconuts and Other B-Sides

From the collection “Coconuts and Other B-Sides” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2012 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

Flavors in breeze
Twelve shades of green
And bright colors
And lovers
Beans, corn and beer
65 years goes by so fast
Years blow past

In warm winds and cold
I’m short-lived but old
And I’m content
To sit and watch people
With futures and lives
Few words suffice
This reflection
Unmentioned

I sit across my lawn
A painted scene
I cross my legs and yawn
Dip in a dream
I think about the things I used to eat and drink
I think about my life and what it means

(Repeat all again)

(Solo)

I sit across my lawn
A painted scene
I cross my legs and yawn
Dip in a dream
I think about the things I used to eat and drink
I think about my life and what it means

“Breakdancer” Lyrics

From the collection “Coconuts and Other B-Sides” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2012 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

Break it down now homey
Break it down on the breakdance floor (2x)

Smooth move
The dancer breaks into the room
It’s strange
You don’t even see him until he
Whoosh whoosh
Gone by
The floor is alive
You know the breakdancer’s fly

He’s not scared
He doesn’t look at you he looks a thousand yards in front of you
Look at him droppin’ it down
Choppin’ up linoleum
Hand over another one
He’s sweepin’ floors with his britches son

The breakdance is dead
He walked outta bed
You think he would care, right? (2x)

Break it down now homey
Break it down on the breakdance floor (2x)

Part two and he’s back again
My boy’s bustin’ moves like he’s
Jason Kidd, Jason Kidd
The crowd is up, the temperature’s high
You know the breakdancer’s fly

Break it down he’s the man of the hour
He’s spinnin’ on his back he’s got Turtle Power
He sweats, clean, the girls scream
Flip hop skip drop
Never seen a body so mean

The breakdance is dead
He walked outta bed
You think he would care, right? (3x)

Break it just like this

(Solo)

Break it down now homey (4x)

“Already Had A Heart” Lyrics

Coconuts and Other B-Sides

From the collection “Coconuts and Other B-Sides” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2012 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

Already had a heart, I made it
It never did start, so I saved it
I think it needed thought, so I gave it
A mind it quickly lost, so I waited

I waited for the dawn and woke it up
I pitied it and picked up a broken cup
I put it back together and I filled it up
And remade in millions my creation

And the clocks fall down in
And the clocks fall down
And the clocks fall down in

Forever in the dark, but in the light
Partly finished, partly lost to life
A rock between the star, between the eyes
I think about ’em all, will they survive?

They’ve never given up, and nor will I
I hope they figure out their mortal life
Once they do, they’ll open up their eyes
I love them and I hope they never die

And the clocks fall down in
And the clocks fall down
And the clocks fall down in

(Solo)

Already had a heart, I made it
It never did start, so I saved it
I think it needed thought, so I gave it
A mind it quickly lost, so I waited

I waited for the dawn and woke it up
I pitied it and picked up a broken cup
I put it back together and I filled it up
And remade in millions my creation

And the clocks fall down

Faithful, I’m faithful
Faithful, I’m faithful

The skin that I have wept upon
I’ll never outgrow
I’m laying in your desperate arms
Enveloped in folds (2x)

Forget about the real things
Forget about your clothes
Forget about the facts and what you know

They say that when you held his body
You held it like a gift
They say that when you held it later
You held it like an offering

The skin that I have wept upon
I’ll never outgrow
I’m laying in your desperate arms
Enveloped in folds

Forget about the real things
Forget about your clothes
Forget about the facts and what you know

‘Cause here we are the little man
Inferior to all of them
We never could attack them ’cause we’d lose

Faithful, I’m faithful
Faithful, I’m faithful (tell ’em again)
Faithful, I’m faithful

(Solo)

Forget about the real things
Forget about your clothes
Forget about the facts and what you know

‘Cause here we are the little man
Inferior to all of them
We never could attack them ’cause we’d lose

Faithful, I’m faithful
Faithful, I’m faithful
Faithful, I’m faithful (2x)

“Yes I’m A” Lyrics

Yes I’m an other and no I don’t rob banks (I don’t rob banks)
Yes I’m a Hispanic, don’t use cocaine (don’t use cocaine)
Yes I’m a dark-skinned Muslim man, won’t blow up your tank
Yes I’m an other and no I don’t rob banks

I know a secret
I think it’s true
I don’t believe it
‘Cause I love

Yes I’m a beggar but I was a child once (a child once)
Yes I’m a mother who used and lost her son (I’m a mother who used and lost her son)
Yes I’m a prisoner, wasn’t there somebody under that gun?
Yes I’m a beggar but I was a child once

I know a secret
I think it’s true
I don’t believe it
‘Cause I love (2x)

My mind is in the coconut
That fell down from the tree
It spread out on the island floor
And crawled into the sea

It’s a very strange system
These are aliens and I’m with them
It’s a very strange system
These are aliens

My bones are on the mountaintop
They act just like a seed
When left alone for years and years
That mountain becomes me

It’s a very strange system
These are aliens and I’m with them
It’s a very strange system
These are aliens

My subconscious knows a lot
You can’t blame that on me
My subconscious knows a lot

(Solo)

My bones are on the mountaintop
They act just like a seed
When left alone for years and years
That mountain becomes me

It’s a very strange system
These are aliens and I’m with them
It’s a very strange system
These are aliens

My subconscious knows a lot
You can’t blame that on me
My subconscious knows a lot

It’s a very strange system (very strange)
These are aliens and I’m with them
It’s a very strange system (very strange)
These are aliens

My subconscious knows a lot
You can’t blame that on me
My subconscious knows a lot
