Track Name: Lottery Prayer
dear God
let me win the lottery
I'll give half the money to the poor

hey God
I went to church today
I've never asked for anything before

you know... you know
you know... you know
you know... numbers

come on
I'm just an average man
you can help me change my life

I know
I don't deserve much
but if could, I'd play your numbers twice

you know... you know
you know... you know
you know... numbers

you know... you know
you know... you know
you know... numbers

Track Name: It's A Shame You Don't Know Me
it's a shame you don't know me and I don't know you
I'd write you a letter if it could get through
I'm sorry you're lonely but what can you do
when your fame becomes your prison

they say there's a dark side of fame and success
when you stand on the mountain
you stand over the rest
and there's people below you demanding your best
and when you say no
they get so disappointed

and some men can't deal with a woman's success
and they want to dominate
and believe they're the best
and they can't stand the feeling
of feeling like the rest
of the people in this world who aren't famous

as though famous is something we should aspire to be
I'd rather be happy than famous, you see
and become the best person I was always meant to be
'cause I know that most people are more successful than me
but I don't measure success like our sick society
and treat others how I'd like to be treated

my head's in the clouds
my heart's almost pure
and I've looked deep inside myself
just to be sure
but without love I don't know how much longer I'll endure
and I bet sometimes you feel the same way

it's a shame you don't know me and I don't know you
I'd write you a letter if it could reach you
and I'm sorry you're lonely
but what can you do
when your fame becomes your prison

Track Name: On The Edge Of The Cliff Forever v02g
the wind blows and soft rain falls
on the edge of the cliff forever
above the rolling hills and fishing towns
at the mercy of whims of weather

neverending like the sea
are the tears we have to cry
everything is big mystery now
why do people have to die

on the edge, the rain flows backwards
inviting us to ride the winds
through the clear divide between earth and sky
where the ocean shore begins

miles of rock beneath our feet
open passage to the sky
everything is a big mystery now
why do people have to die

[Bridge]

the wind blows and soft rain falls
on the edge of the cliff forever
past the rolling hills and farming towns
at the mercy of whims of weather

miles of rock beneath our feet
open passage to the sky
everything is a big mystery now
why do people have to die
Track Name: On The Edge Of The Cliff Forever v02h
the wind blows and soft rain falls
on the edge of the cliff forever
above the rolling hills and fishing towns
at the mercy of whims of weather

neverending like the sea
are the tears we have to cry
everything is big mystery now
why do people have to die

on the edge, the rain flows backwards
inviting us to ride the winds
through the clear divide between earth and sky
where the ocean shore begins

miles of rock beneath our feet
open passage to the sky
everything is a big mystery now
why do people have to die

the wind blows and soft rain falls
on the edge of the cliff forever
past the rolling hills and farming towns
at the mercy of whims of weather

miles of rock beneath our feet
open passage to the sky
everything is a big mystery now
why do people have to die
