Track Name: My Heart is Always in a State of Revolution
My heart is always in a state of revolution,
Marching amongst the masses to the square
The tanks are overturned, the midnight bonfires burn
Oh, how I wish you could be there

There is a riot 'neath this flannel membrane,
Guantanamera in my heart
And when the music plays, I storm the barricades
So bright and constant when it starts

By land and by sea, I am marching for thee
To the beat of my defiant drum

My heart is always in a state of revolution,
When everyone's gone back to their lives
The trains they run on time, the riot's in decline
But down here in a bunker, there I hide

My phalanx faded, leaving me exposed, I'm
Stranded on a former battlefield
But if there's music here, it's still for you my dear
Is this revolution real?

By land and by sea, I am marching for thee
To the beat of my defiant drum
Track Name: Grace Don't Come Easy
Grace, it don't come easy for me
Narrow as a balance beam, I'm all over the place
I flail when sadness sends me off the rails
There's no moral to the tale, no patterns to trace

Chopping down my bodhi tree
Shaking the ground right under me
Well I am surrendering
To gravity

Grace comes far too late to rescue me
Just a Pyrrhic victory, leaves me in the cold
After you, I've got no sunset to ride into
I'd rather make the broken new,
Turn a leaden love to gold

I'm going up to outer space
A holiday from the human race
From memories that I cannot erase
Am I up to the challenge of grace?

Grace, it don't come easy to me
