Track Name: Home Again
In my travels, I've seen many things,
Dying sparrows at the base of a tree,
Bloodshot drunkards in dim hotel bars,
Winding roads lined with broken down cars,

I once met a veteran who was missing an arm,
Told me he'd lit up the night sky with air strikes in Vietnam,
We shared a drink by the fireplace coals,
And he wept for his comrades who died alone,

Here we are, alone for once,
What have we been so afraid of?
It's been years since I went away,
Here we are together again,
I've missed you my baby,
I'm home again,

I once took a ferry to an island with no trees,
And I watched fireworks with the natives on New Year's Eve,
We ushered in the new year with a round of Auld Lang Sine,
Sung to the tune of an old song by Patsy Cline,

I once played a poker game with Chuck Liddell on a yacht,
And he told me about how he trained for his first title shot,
Then I took all of his money with a queen high flush,
And then I spent the rest of the night making sure he didn't drink too much,

Here we are, alone for once,
What have we been so afraid of?
It's been years since I went away,
Here we are together again,
I've missed you my baby,
I'm home again.
Track Name: You Came Along
I've spent some days, all alone,
I've had some time, in restoration mode,
Then you came along,
Broke my reverie,
My time in reflection,
Now just a memory...

I've wished some wishes, were never made,
I've had a feeling, there's a better way,
Then you came along,
Like a mystery,
Like a sterling angel,
At the top of a tree...

I'm feeling just fine,
And you're looking alright,
So let's go,
There's a fire inside,
And some bourbon on ice,
So let's go...

I've seen some small things, become big,
I've let some things go, time and again,
Then you came along,
With just a glimpse for me,
A fire in your laugh,
So very dastardly,

I'm feeling just fine,
And you're looking alright,
So let's go,
There's a fire inside,
And some bourbon on ice,
So let's go...
Track Name: Cherry Blossoms
Life, could be worse,
A frozen malady without a man to lead to death,
And it seems, we're floating along,
Space wants ourselves, wants our worst

Things not what they seem,
Presenting a diamond ring,
Cherry blossoms as stars,
We might just go that far,

Lines, in the sand,
Tell me where you're from and what you like to speak,
Now I know, you and I aren't so different,
At all, we're like brother's now,

Things not what they seem,
Presenting a diamond ring,
Cherry blossoms as stars,
We might just go that far,

Things not what they seem,
Presenting a diamond ring,
Cherry blossoms as stars,
Remind us who we are...
Track Name: A Dream
Baby, you are a dream,

There I was,
Just walking along,
Thinking you were long gone,

Then I saw a raindrop,
And I knew,
I had to go back to you,

Baby, you are a dream,

There I was,
Just shuffling along,
And I knew that I told you wrong,

Then I thought,
That I might go back,
To you,

Baby, you are a dream...
Track Name: Unrequited Girl
My eyes are rising to the sky,
I've never felt this way,
I still don't know what I want,
Taken captive again,

Where have you been,
All along?
I've been waiting,
Singing your song,

Conspicuous,
Unforgettable,
Master of my world,
Fantastic,
Everlasting,
My unrequited girl,

I can hear your siren's song,
I'm dying again,
The magic timbre of your voice,
Luring me in,

What have you seen,
While you've been gone?
I've been waiting,
Singing your song,

Believable,
Unachievable,
Of this I'm sure,
A blinding light,
Make things right,
My unrequited girl,

Conspicuous,
Unforgettable,
Master of my world,
Fantastic,
Everlasting,
My unrequited girl...
Track Name: The Lonesome Dove
A cold December street with slush and snow,
A lady in red waits alone,
Her beauty demands a second look,
A more radiant light has never shone,

A taxi approaches from the Western light,
Cleaving through obstructions galore,
Coming to a rest beside her curb,
This is what she's been waiting for,

A graceful man emerges from the freshly opened door,
She'd met him just a year before,
His smile is wide and his eyes are true,
Her true love's presence restored,

A short walk to the playhouse,
The gentleman holds her close,
The door gets held for the smiling pair,
Their withheld affection shows,

A long drawn curtain o'er the stage front,
People pouring into their seats,
A short wait, and the lights are dark,
The chorus sets the scene,

A lonesome dove alone on his perch,
He decides to take to the skies,
An innocent display of stage fright,
He's forgotten what it looks like to fly,
Track Name: No Good
I'm home, home again,
Ready to fight for what's right,
Ready to say, what must be said,

I'm far from the truth,
Under the gun, crawling through,
Finding a knife, in my wound,

It's just no good,
It's just no good,

Once a saint,
Constellations of love,
Falling, is not enough,

I'm here, lover of the bride,
Despicable you, taking a ride,
That's okay, I'll just decide,

It's just no good,
It's just no good,
Track Name: Rage
Thrown from the light,
Wake me from my rest...
Machines in the dark,
This must be a test...
Ask me if I want more,
Defiant, I say yes...

How can I say no?
Pushed beyond control,
Floundering in my rage,
Going against the flow,

What can I say?
I'm just enraged...
I'll be fine...
Years down the line...
Track Name: Washing Without Water
Washing without water now,
We have come so many miles,
See the sweat upon your brow,
A reminder of a thousand trials...

You are my sanity,
A collection of bold endeavors,
Spotting my refined insight,
Killing every fantasy,

I am your sanctity,
Once a knight, now a knoll,
You will find an oasis,
Ready for your thirsty heart,

We are making our own time,
Capturing hours of wasted smiles,
We are children by the only measure,
Worth making on a travelled road,

My longing is a dune of waves,
Washing in and washing away,
When the years have come and gone,
Your sight will have passed you on the way,

After falling through the sand,
There'll be revelations by the hundred,
Thousand of smiling scarabs,
Devouring our long lost atrophy,

Apathy,
Atrophy...
Track Name: Salvation
Among the trees in the valley of dreams,
Your pearlescent hair and your haphazard seams,
Traveling by the stars in the sky,
Lost among the glaze on your eyes,
Constellations set the scene,
As the daylight moves out and the tide moves on in,
Drowning the bliss of the days gone by,
Replacing the laughter with foreboding sighs,

The Wrath and his minions form a line,
You look on with tears in your eyes,
You understand that there's no other way,
The end of the world has come today,
Just when I think that the end is near,
I hear God whispering in my ear,
I circle down and I take your hand,
And I fly you away from this forsaken land,

The mountains and valleys are bathed in the light,
You and I watch from our place in the sky,
The seas and the clouds and the wind and the trees,
Settle at last, as he falls to his knees,
The Wrath looks on, as God takes his hand,
And leads him to the Lake of Fire at last,
A seldom tear falls from his eye,
As God forgives him, and tells him goodbye.
Track Name: Magic
Underneath the blow hole,
Magic master's mojo,
Ripe with the spirit,
Rolling this one solo,
Few and far between,
The inundating king,
Pushing the sails,
Taken under the wing,

You're fearful,
Giving me an earful,
Moving,
The far side of the clearing,

Here's another image:
Magic has it's limits,
A raging blue fire,
God's in a scrimmage,
Underneath these scars,
A nearly stagnant heart,
Beating me to death,
Almost a work of art,

Tearful,
You're very nearly cheerful,
Grooving,
Now I've got you moving,

Magic,
Fantastic dreams are tragic,
Magic,
Fantastic dreams are tragic,

Disillusion cocktail,
Underneath the blue whale,
Trying to hold on,
When the greatest magic fails,
Success can take you so far,
That's when things get so hard,
Never let go,
Grasping blindly for your soul shard,

You're fearful,
Giving me an earful,
Moving,
The far side of the clearing,

Tasteful adoration,
You're favorite vacation,
Listening in,
To the greatest radio station,
Your magic on your sleeve,
The things you'll never leave,
Cheesin' for the camera,
Your imperfect teeth,

Tearful,
You're very nearly cheerful,
Grooving,
Now I've got you moving,

Magic,
Fantastic dreams are tragic,
Magic,
Fantastic dreams are tragic,

Hoping for a big thing,
Now you're just a yearling,
The places you'll go,
The things that you're seeking,
A headache,
Shifting like an earthquake,
A bombastic voyage,
At the bottom of a vast lake,

You're fearful,
Giving me an earful,
Moving,
The far side of the clearing,

You've forgotten your mission,
A halfhearted petition,
To return to the sky,
On a whirlwind of ambition,
You're cringing,
Your essence is lingering,
One with the vapor,
I must have been imagining,

Tearful,
You're very nearly cheerful,
Grooving,
Now I've got you moving,

Magic,
Fantastic dreams are tragic,
Magic,
Fantastic dreams are tragic.
Track Name: Deliver You
Don't run away,
Believe in me,
I will deliver you,

I tell you the truth,
I long for you,
I will deliver you.
Track Name: Waking Up
Once upon the eve of Falling Falls,
Surrounded by these two walls,
Walking along endless halls,
Stars in the sky make you feel small,
Your worst day slows to a crawl,
Waking up, waking up,
From a dream,

Playground, trees, girls you once knew,
Water into skies, feeling blue,
Winter failures flashing through,
What does it mean, I lost a tooth?
Trapped beneath a swimming pool,
Waking up, waking up,
From a dream,

Not knowing where to go,
If it's a dream or not I do not know,
Afraid for the things I'm shown,
Will I spend my life all alone?
Track Name: Surrounded
There's another three months of this?
Sliding white in your eyes,
It's sad that we're just surrounded,

Can't stand to be outside,
Frozen earth, a hellish plane,
It's sad that we're just surrounded,

On the mountaintops, by the sky,
A lonely eye, on the blue and white,
It's sad that we're just surrounded,

Grey fog consuming the sky,
A cloud of bones in my wake,
It's sad that we're just surrounded,

It's sad that we're just surrounded,
It's sad that we're just surrounded.

I found you waiting by the second street roundabout,
I never knew till now there's nothing to complain about,
I've seen the light by the whitesky in your eyes,
Reflecting my heart, announcing my thoughts around,
You've shown me that, there's still brilliance in this world,
This earth's my pearl, and I'm not made to feel so down,
You are my mountain solid and uncompromising,
I feel so safe in your surrounding love, surrounding love...
Track Name: Interstate 15 (We've Got Enough)
Younger or older,
These things are never over,
Till you've taken the time,
And received the cold shoulder,

Plastic, elastic,
These things are unattractive,
Your truth is a lie,
And my feelings are reactive,

Perfect, allergic,
I've never been so nervous,
We all relive the past,
When the present isn't working,

A stagnant fragrance,
I've dealt with my anger,
You've let go of our friendship,
Making us perfect strangers,

Now here we go,
Out on the road,
Where have we been,
We'll never know,
Are we there,
Or are we far?
Is it hard,
To be the star?

Hardy and heavy,
You'll never be ready,
The stars are just lights,
And the pavement's never steady,

Breaking and waking,
Your persistence is shaking,
But it's alright for now,
When the world's already quaking,

Now here we go,
Out on the road,
Where have we been,
We'll never know,
Are we there,
Or are we far?
Is it hard,
To be the star?

The task is tall,
Our shadows small,
Just be prepared,
To take some falls,
We'll never be,
Too good for love,
Our hearts are strong,
We've got enough,
