Track Name: Maybe I'll Fly
Maybe I’ll Fly
Music and Lyrics by Halie Loren

© 2005, Jammin Salmon Music (ASCAP)

I’m getting buried underneath a crumbling castle
While the pretty kingdom you built all falls down
Though once you treated me like royalty, it doesn’t mean anything
Now that you’ve stripped away the crown…

Who was that little girl who gave in so quickly
To the notion that a prince would make my life sound?
And as you ride away into the West my only regret is maybe
I should’ve built my own damn house…

With you at my side I covered my eyes
Letting you lead me through my life and now
That you let me fall—maybe I’ll fly someday,
I’ll learn to fly
Maybe I’ll Fly

I never asked what fairytales would have to offer me
I guess only your love and my lost Identity
But She’s coming up and when she finally blooms
Maybe She’ll be somebody’s more substantial fantasy…

With you at my side I covered my eyes
Letting you lead me through my life and now
That you let me fall—maybe I’ll fly someday,
I’ll learn to fly
Maybe I’ll Fly

(Instrumental/Scatting solo)

With you at my side I covered my eyes
Letting you lead me through my life and now
That you let me fall—maybe I’ll fly
And I’m free enough to decide—enough to realize
I don’t even like castles anyway, and now
That I’m free to fall
I’ll fly— fly— Someday I’ll fly.
Track Name: Alone
"Alone"
Music and Lyrics by Halie Loren

© 2005, Jammin Salmon Music (ASCAP)

Lying awake, on my own again
I can finally steal the entire bed
And yet I curl into this ball of flesh
Protected from the chill that starts
Inside my bones and spreads to parts
Of me that I’d forgotten could feel
The pain of cold
But they’ll numb themselves soon enough or so I’m told

Alone
Desperate for somebody, for you to hold
But all I’ll be is holding out until the only skin I need’s my own
To feel at home again
Alone again

Window is open and the sky is dim
You know me and my affair with 4 a.m.
But all I wish for now is sleep’s sweet release
Music of the rain keeps me awake
Wishing it were running down my face
Instead of rivulets of the saltier kind
Oh, how it stings
But like learning, healing’s only something time can bring

Alone
Desperate for somebody, for you to hold
But all I’ll be is holding out until the only skin I need’s my own
To feel at home again
Alone again

The walls where our shadows used to play
The echoes of promises we made
The sheets where our bodies used to lay
Tangled and hard to discern
like telling apart happiness and familiar comfort
Track Name: Sand
"Sand"
Music and Lyrics by Halie Loren

© 2005, Jammin Salmon Music (ASCAP)

Sand—nothing but sand
Left of the Diamonds in our hands
Tight—held on too tight
Until we crumbled the prism’s light
Oh-I---should have known
Oh-when---to let go…

Why do we take, take from a good thing
Until we break, break it as far as it can go
Thinking we’ll make, make it better but never can it be more
Can it be more than…Sand

What good is sand?
When I wanted lasting
When I needed solid land
Oh-we---bled it dry
Oh-we---let it die…

Why do we take, take from a good thing
Until we break, break it as far as it can go
Thinking we’ll make, make it better but never can it be more
Can it be more—more--more …
Than Sand…
Sand…
Sand.

Track Name: Pretty Truth
"Pretty Truth"
Music and Lyrics by Halie Loren

© 2005, Jammin Salmon Music (ASCAP)

You still pretend you like to let—
Me always choose
I still pretend that I don’t get—
Pissed off at you when I lose
Brand new
Maybe we should blind each other right now
Before it all starts showing--

Through…
We are but figments we can never live up to…
But beneath the pretty polish
We could always find an even prettier truth

I don’t know yet the kind of woman
You think you wish I was
You don’t know yet just how many men
Know all the places you love on me, too
But soon
The bliss of ignorance will lift
And in the clarity it’ll all show

Through…
We are but figments we can never live up to…
But beneath the pretty polish,
We could always find an even prettier truth

In the real you and me underneath the frilly niceties
We will eventually have to peel the mask away
And show what we’re made of

Oooooh…
We are but figments we can never live up to…
But beneath the pretty polish,
We could always find an even
We could always find an even prettier truth
Track Name: Kitty
KITTY
© Halie Loren, 2005
(Jammin' Salmon Music, ASCAP)

Girls will be girls will hate girls
Sticking the needles in
Just underneath the skin

Friends will make friends will break friends
To secure a seat
On that precious hierarchy…
That you use to belittle
All the people you left riddled
All along your way to the top

(CH)
Hey there, kitty kitty
You’re so sweet and pretty
‘Til someone poses a threat
Your Ugly Side is showing
They never see it coming
Until they feel your claws deep in their backs

Face to my face you’re two-faced
Behind wide-eyes there’s hate
You’re Sabotage incarnate…

Lust bleeds for lust feeds your lust
You screwed us all for more
So you could be top Power-Whore
But you don’t seem aware
Those you climbed above to get there
Won’t stand under you long and you’ll fall…down

Hey there, kitty kitty
You’re so sweet and pretty
‘Til someone poses a threat
Your Ugly Side is showing
They never see it coming
Until they feel your claws deep in their backs

(BR)
And when you spiral down into the hole you’ve mined
Hope you enjoy the ride
‘Cause it’s “coming around” real soon if YOU don’t….

Hey there, kitty kitty
You’re so sweet and pretty
‘Til someone poses a threat
Your Ugly Side is showing
They never see it coming
Until they feel your claws deep in their backs
Hey there, Kitty Kitty

You’re such a….

FULL CIRCLE
©Halie Loren, 2005
(Jammin' Salmon Music, ASCAP)

It feels good to hurt you
It feels good to turn it all around on you
To not be the one who’s falling down onto
The scattered, jagged shards of a broken heart

It’s my turn to scar you
It’s my turn to twist the knife a little more
To walk out as you lie bleeding on the floor
You’ll feel what real “Alone” is—like I did
Thanks to you
Here’s to you

You knew—you wouldn’t always get away with it
You knew—all things come around someday
Full Circle

I used to believe you
I used to believe in a lot of things
Like trust and faith and love and loyalty
Now I’m cold and cynical—just like you
You’ve sown so many seeds
This time I’ll see you reap

You knew—you wouldn’t always get away with it
You knew—all things come around someday
Full Circle

I won’t be just another slave
To your cruel, sadistic game
You cracked me once, but I won’t cave
You can’t just throw me
Throw me
Throw me
Away

You knew—you wouldn’t always get away with it
You knew—all things come around someday
Full Circle
Track Name: Empty
EMPTY

(Jammin' Salmon Music, ASCAP)

Stick it through
Suck it in
Chew it up
Spit it out

That’s a good girl
Don’t you give up now
You won’t be okay
‘Til you’re inside out
and

Empty
Empty
Empty
Isn’t that what you wanted?

Shove away
Lock it out
Eat the air
Fill your mouth

Who really needs a soul
When heaven’s right now
In these skinny jeans
Making your god so proud
You’re

Empty
Empty
Empty
Isn’t that what you wanted?

Little seed… now an ugly tree
Watered by…the self-hate you feed upon
Darkened eyes—silent cry
Slowly die—in your mind
In your mind
In your mind
As you empty…

Empty
Empty
Empty
Isn’t that… Oh, isn’t that what you wanted?
Track Name: Numb
NUMB
© 2005 Halie Loren
(Jammin' Salmon Music, ASCAP)

“Get it out of your head,” they said
“don’t you wanna forget?”
“We know you wanna be numb, come on…
Shut it off just like everyone has done”

They’ll tell you just what you need to know
They’ll erase what you don’t
They’re looking out for your every step
Is the intent to control or protect?
Smile, it’s okay
They can make the (whole) big, bad world go away…
Shut it off shut it off shut it off

(CH)
Don’t see, don’t hear
Don’t know, don’t fear
Now don’t you feel better now, my dear?

Shouldn’t our hunger for truth be calmed?
We’ve been without it so long
So many seem not to mind it now
The image of integrity whittled down
Don’t we (all) deserve
To live in a dream, feeling safe and undisturbed…
Shut it off, shut it off, shut it off…

Don’t see, don’t hear
Don’t know, don’t fear
Now don’t you feel better now, my dear?

Get it out of your head, get it out of your head
Just close your eyes and be led, the age of reason is dead….
Get it out of your head, get it out of your head
Swallow what you’ve been fed, the age of reason is dead
The age of reason is dead, reason is dead, reason is dead…
Track Name: Almost Even
ALMOST EVEN (© Halie Loren, 2005)

If I could take half the fire from my lips
Put it in your heart, and rub it on the tip of your tongue
We’d be almost even

If I could rev you up and leave you in neutral
Feeling out the gears and never locking fully in Drive
We’d be almost even

Hey, we’d be…
Almost even
If you could swim halfway I would throw you a short line
Almost even
Well, I’m not the cruel kind,
but baby I’d make an exception this time

If I could pick you up when you’re shiny and new
Show you off, pack you up, and shelve you with my other old toys
We’d be almost even

Hey, we’d be…
Almost even
If I could push you off a cliff and say “I’ll catch you the next time”
Almost even
Well, I’m not the cruel kind,
But baby I’d make an exception this time

Almost even
If you could swim halfway I’d throw you a short line
Almost even
Well, I’m not the cruel kind,
But baby I’d make an exception, I’m…
Almost even
If I could push you off a cliff and say “I’d catch you if I had the time”
Almost even
Well, I’m not the cruel kind,
But baby I’d make an exception
I’m not the cruel kind,
But baby I’d make an exception
I’m not the cruel kind,
But baby I’d make an exception this time
Track Name: Sisters
SISTERS
© 2005, Written by Halie Loren
(Jammin' Salmon Music, ASCAP)

I’ll pick you up and carry you away
Out of the dark
I’ll chase away the demons, keep you safe
‘Til you find your spark again
You and me, expected to be the Healers, the Givers,
The Mothers
Who else can we run to if it isn’t
To one another?
There’s a tie that binds me and you
That no circumstances could undo

And I—I call you “Sister”
You—are never all alone
We—We are all Sisters
And we never have to make it on our own

We were there together lost in the waves
With so much to lose
Trapped inside the clutches of a thousand fates
That were never ours to choose
But side-by-side we lasted the storm
And found ourselves standing on the shore

And I—I call you “Sister”
You—are never all alone
We—We are all Sisters
And we never have to make it on our own

No force can take
No force can break our faith

In our Sisters
I am—you are—never all alone
And I—I call you “Sister”
You—are never all alone
And I—I am
And You—You are
And We—We are all…
Sisters.
Track Name: Lucky
Lucky
Written by Halie Loren, a©2005
(Jammin’ Salmon Music, ASCAP)

I have a bowl of fruit
A sink that rarely leaks
When I breathe I fill my lungs with air that’s sweet
I have a soft bed
A closet full of clothes
When I step outside its on soil where grass can grow

And I have, I have, I have, I have…
Enough
And I need, I need, I need, I need…
Nothing else much, I’m

Lucky—this a lucky life
I see it more and more how
Lucky is a relative state of mind
And as long as I concede
That I’ve got all that I need
To be satisfied, I’ll feel lucky
All my life

I have a friend to call
A sister to worry about me
When I fall, I know someone will help me get back on my feet

And I have, I have, I have, I have, I have…
More than I know
And I need, I need, I need, I need, I need…
Nothing else to show I’m

Lucky—this is a lucky life
I see it more and more how
Lucky is a relative state of mind
And as long as I concede that I’ve got all that I need to be satisfied
I’ll feel lucky all my life.

Sometimes when times when get hard it’s hard to believe
Life’s not a dry well
But seeing what fades, what lasts, gives me reason to remind myself…
Lucky is a state of mind
My friend, I’m so

Lucky—this is a lucky life
I see it more and more how
Lucky is a relative state of mind
And as long as I concede
That I’ve got all that I need
To be satisfied, I’ll feel lucky
All my life.

I have a bowl of fruit….
