Quiet Steam

Released as be-side of "digging in the dirt" single, 1992.

Stand back Stand back
What are those dogs doing, sniffing at my feet
They're onto something, pickin' up, pickin' up
This heat
This heat

Give me steam How you feel can make it real
Get a life with this dreamer's dream Oh, give me steam Real as anything you see
Get a life in this dreamer's dream
You know your culture from your trash You know your plastic from your cash
When I lose sight of the track You know the way back
But I know you

You know your stripper from your paint You know your sinner from your saint Whenever heaven's doors are shut
You get them open, but
I know you

Give me steam And how you feel can make it real
Get a life in this dreamer's dream Oh, give me steam Real as anything you see
Get a life in this dreamer's dream
You know your green from your red
You know the quick from the dead
So much better than the rest
You think you've been blessed But I know you

You know your ladder from your snake You know the throttle from the brake You know your straight line from the curve You've got a lot of nerve But I know you

Give me steam And how you feel can make it real
Get a life in this dreamer's dream
Oh, give me steam Real as any place you've been
Get a life with this dreamer's dream
Oh yeah, I need steam Feel your steam around me
Turning up the heat
I start to dream aloud
You move my hands and feet
Won't you step into this cloud Of steam This steam
Give me steam How you feel can make it real
Real as anything you've seen
Get a life with this dreamer's dream
Give me steam How you feel can make it so real
Get a life in this dreamer's dream
Help me yeah
Comin' alive In your steam Comin' alive In your steam Comin' alive
