Lucy 04:05
Lucy we knew we couldn't have walked out alive Oh Lucy from the beginning we walked on the fire Oh Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy Little by little the rain disappears Out of the shelter emerge without fear One tiny moment the radiance is near Without you the walls start breaking The house it will crash down burning How can they find us and say yes again? Can we still be together like stones and the water? And can we just fall apart like we're dust to each other? Oh Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy The rising moon flown in out of the blue The sinking sun face the smile of the moon One tiny moment that seems to hold true Without you the windows blocking The house that goes beatless and starving Inside they will find us and say yes again Lucy you know that we could have walked out together Oh Lucy if we had never by chance heard each other Oh Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy

Distance 02:47
Say you don't know And say you don't need But I do And then you go but you don't lead me I should know And I do care I am stone I am stone I am stone Though I hoped And though I came You didn't seem to see or feel or notice I was pulled From a happy distance Distance Distance Please know me Please know me Please know me I am stone I am stone I am stone

Not Enough 01:53
We could talk all night But would it matter We could see all the sights there are to see But would that fix it I just want to walk alone That could change it We agree on many things Just not enough this time We picked each other up so far That's not enough, oh It could be a little stranger I suppose But then we'd live in even greater danger Of falling off the earth I don't want to make it better Just want to let it slide We agree on many things Just not enough this time We picked each other up so far That's not enough, oh We agree on many things Just not enough this time We picked each other up so far That's not enough, oh this time.

Apart 03:30
I want to see everything I am supposed to So I do what I am told to Sleep on a bed of nails To see the sunrise I cannot wait I cannot wait And when it must be It must be Streets that could only Be praised in the thick of night Spell out that we are apart On a foreign ceiling In a lost room And when it must be It must be

Follow The 04:25
Savoring the brevity Of a breeze And with open arms This moment I seize Letting it travel to other far off lands I wish I knew just where it goes Where it goes to So I followed the breeze Round corners and trees Because my thick skin Is craving the feeling And I can't seem to just let it go Oh, just let it go Soaking the warmth from the rays of the sun He takes in some heat As it moves on He picks up his head and looks all around And begins; wishing he knew just where it goes to Where it goes to So he follows the sun round corners and trees Because his thick skin Is craving the feeling And he can't seem to just let it go Oh, just let it go You'd think that we'd realize that we're far from home What I'll soon learn doesn't matter right now Cause now is when I'm loving And when I'm following And I don't wish to know just where it goes to Where it goes to

Haste 03:09
Early morn the sun is in my room And never mind that it sheds the light on doom The clinic clean unpainted walls that silence Hopes and lives that lived before Somebody said that if you would go into your head And you cry that your life is a mess Then you suffer the feelings you dread Anyone else who believes in that just wait until You’re alone and you’ll find that you will Not be able to swallow your pill Everyday I go downstairs to greet The same old fools but no one new to meet And they’re all so full of themselves I don’t want them I want someone else Somebody said that if you would go into your head And you cry that your life is a mess Then you suffer the feelings you dread Anyone else who believes in that just wait until You’re alone and you’ll find that you will Not be able to swallow your pill Stay away and leave me here to find The joy of doing nothing in my mind The smiling face the staring eyes the scary climb Upon the wasted time Somebody said that if you would go into your head And you cry that your life is a mess Then you suffer the feelings you dread Anyone else who believes in that just wait until You’re alone and you’ll find that you will Not be able to swallow your pill

Neanderthal 07:07
Voice: "If you want to live the world that you like, you need to get up and say something. You know? So that's definitely the end of my rant." Voice: "People don't make their voice heard." Humans aren't fun When you're like one of us From humans you're shunned When you're like one of us They yell at me Cast stones at me They laugh at me Throw blades at me I hate those so-called human beings I hate those so-called human beings Them with their smaller brains, ridge-less eyes, Violent minds, button nose, social lives They think they are wise Humans aren't ones That you could joke around with They think we are dumb They think they have such a wit They step on me They steal from me Talk back at me And lie to me Voice: "I think we're just in the wrong place at the wrong time." Humans look down Especially if they are smaller They spit on the ground They think it will make them tall How I hope that they Will go away I'll see that day I'm here to stay I hate those so-called human beings I hate those so-called human beings Devoid of humanity, turn away from those in need, surviving on their acts of greed. Pathetic indeed.

Salvo Social 02:53
Don't you know that Jesus Christ, that Jesus cried, that Jesus died And just suppose that Jesus rose and Jesus knows and these our foes And don't you know that Jesus Christ, that Jesus cried, that Jesus died And juxtapose that Jesus rose and Jesus knows and these our foes Save me, our lady of Moab Save me, holy mother of all Save me, our lady of Moab Save me, holy mother of all Embed in bed my head the reds the reds the reds the reds are coming Set the war they fed the war they said the war they said the war Embed in bed my head the reds the reds the reds the reds are coming Set the war they fed the war they said the war they said was over Save me, our lady of Moab Save me, holy mother of all Save me, our lady of Moab Save me, holy mother of all Go watch the news on CBS and NBC and CNN They put your head inside the noose of ignorance and your consent Go watch the news on ABC and FOX and MSN They put your head inside the noose of ignorance and pull it Save me, our lady of Moab Save me, holy mother of all Save me, our lady of Moab Save me, holy mother of all

Nothing 02:15
The sun will burn off the day all day The day will fall off the night all night The week peels off another week You can count each and each But they're Well nothing Well nothing Well nothing My head is thicker than my spine Is heavier than my leg Slower than my feet I coil in and in and to Well nothing Well nothing Well nothing The sun is just as big or small As any car or rock or bed Or sun or hand or glove or junk or Well nothing Well nothing Well nothing The sun will burn off the day all day The day will fall off the night all night The week peels off another week You can count each and each But they're Well nothing Well nothing Well nothing

Thank You 02:21
When we stood in the cold and talked in the park Till the stars froze above With bated breath It was everything I needed I was so tired I couldn't see And your voice went soft like a velvet dream I knew you know It was everything I needed Oh thank you Oh thank you And thank you And thank you When I was lying in a sick little ball And you hardly knew my last name You said, oh you're a person It was everything I needed And thank you Thank you And thank you Thank you

Refrain 04:11
He broke down altogether One year ago to this day I never knew how I could stay He tried to blot the sunlight One thousand times his counting And then you saw him standing blue I woke to sounds of laughter Inside my mind and your smile All shadows flee as we rejoice I wake inside the same bed Where he was last laid to rest And only wish you knew him too No I'll never regret my patience Cause it brought me back to you (Never never never cry, for forgiveness, no need for forgiveness) No I'll never regret my patience Cause it brought me back to you (Never never never cry, for forgiveness, never for forgiveness) Marisol Oh... No I'll never regret my patience Cause it brought me back to you (Never never never cry, for forgiveness, no need for forgiveness) No I'll never regret my patience Cause it brought me back to you (Never never never cry, for forgiveness, never for forgiveness) Marisol The magic spells were no use Those days to kindle lanterns And shine a light upon his way The breeze was right that morning You helped him redefine faith And see he was me all along No I'll never regret my patience Cause it brought me back to you (Never never never cry, for forgiveness, no need for forgiveness) No I'll never regret my patience Cause it brought me back to you (Never never never cry, for forgiveness, never for forgiveness) Marisol

Save the Day 02:36
I'd say sometimes I feel turned off and down Things I have Well, have had me This constant swagger of tired and haughty days Holds back and holds off and doesn't crush because You are my love... Missed the bus Missed so much Did I hit the books or just ignore the looks The burning back of my mind could turn The tide of oceans If not for solace, `cause You are my love... The music I have helps and the books I have help and you seem to save the day you seem to save the day

Sad 02:04
Simplicity Sing to me softly I won't care I won't care anymore

Portrait 03:16
I wanted to tell you That you have something special That you have something we all want That you have something we can't have You filled the hole so well

about

Sunny Ash, released only a year after Sound Check, represents a major step in the band's songwriting and production abilities. The psych/prog experiments have given way to a new focus on concise, accessible pop songs, such as "Distance" and "Not Enough." Even the overtly Floyd-inspired song "Neanderthal," with all its spacey guitars and sound effects, still follows a standard verse/chorus song structure. Lyrics have also become more poetic and reflective - "Lucy" tells of a lost friendship, "Follow The" talks of a journey, "Apart" explores themes of expectations and separation. The album ends with "Refrain," clearly a nod to Radiohead, a key influence of the band at the time.

The 2012 re-release includes non-album tracks "Save the Day," "Sad," and "Portrait," originally released shortly after Sunny Ash in 2004.
