Track Name: Off
Sundown Afternoon
Golden hues abound
Grey heaven overhead
Taste of you and what she said

Sipping Spring in bloom
Wait for sailing in June
Run my hands through her hair
Smell perfume and the weather

Truth buried under lies
Thoughts I've tried to disguise
For much too long

Blue pen pal, it's you I tell
Flower lapel, lapiz a papel

Red light all around
Searching for what can't be found
He's on the way again
Got myself into a tailspin

And you came here in peace
That's what threw me so far off
Track Name: Katie
The feeling of falling
Grabs a hold of me fast
And now that I've found it
I want it to last

I'm losing my stomach
Can't see the ground
I'm bouncing all over
Like a spring unbound

Gravity is pulling me
Into the sea - Katie

And days in the park
The sun and sand
Her love's like an ocean
That won't let me land

She makes me so happy
I'm drowning in joy
She moves me so easy
Like a babe with a toy

Gravity is pulling me
Into the sea - Katie

And what do have to offer?
Nothing but my love for her

And what of the future?
And what of the past?
I'm stuck in this moment
And I want it to last

Gravity is pulling me
Into the sea - Katie
Track Name: Trapped
Blood bubbling
She's thinking
Of the best way to get out

Can's rumbling
Pressure sinking
Won't be too long before we're

Trapped - lost in space, place and time
Beyond the suns we used to know
I'm floating here, on my own
Can't get control of my little craft

Astronomer
Pleasure seeking
Sail silently past unknown virgin worlds

Master alarm
Something is wrong
Won't be too long before we're

Trapped - lost in space, place and time
Beyond the suns you used to know
I'm floating here, on my own
Can't get control obliviously spinning

Pure oxygen
From lips akin
To those I would steal air from on Earth

Slow leaking
Gut sinking
Thought I was safe - but we're

Trapped - lost in space, place and time
Beyond the suns we used to know
I'm floating here, on my own
Can't get control of my little craft
Track Name: Cecelia Rose
Oh my Cecelia Rose
Sounds so nice when you're talkin' so low
Cut me down to my very soul
That's why I love my Cecelia Rose

All of your secrets I never will know
Cross over bridges; it's you I follow
Planted desire's seed, she watches it grow
That's why I love my Cecelia Rose
Track Name: Another Reason Why
When she first caught me
In her web of charms
Break free I could not
She's trapped me in her arms

And I don't mind
Playing your infatuation games
It's just another reason why

Stole them right from me
Now blinded I shall be
Guilded song bird singing
Won't you share your nested tree? (with me?)

And I don't mind
Playing your infatuation games
It's just another reason why
I belong with you
Track Name: Point of View
Jan 8, 2011

They came by the thousands
the wheels turning took them
Some rich and some jobless
Some learning from hard lessons
And right on cue they formed a procession
You wouldn't know they hadn't practiced before

Is it time?
Do we find ourselves feeling bored?
What's in store this time?

Each held up the 2nd Amendment
And pointed straight at the moment they hated
Superior - that's what we call ourselves
Interiors filled up with hatred and spite

Are we right?
Are we right after all?
Rise and fall with the tide

And see what we can be

Gabrielle lay down your flintlock and pistol
The 8,000 strong will continue to prevail
Now is the time to take back America
Let me define - and right there's the problem

When you confine just a few
Breaks the whole meaning down
No common ground

No common point of view
Track Name: Bow On
Bows on water high
Diamonds in the light
Brace yourselves - she's comin' over!

Ride on crest of foam
Sea I call my own
Wind is up, she's on the heel now

F*ck your gasoline
We've got the dream machine
Damn the warnings and the danger signs
Cast off the bow lines!

Daylight fading fast
Let's pray the trades will last
Port of call on all horizons

Pelicans surround
Flying 'round the sound
Good luck charm - we'll take what we can get

F*ck your gasoline
We've got the dream machine
Damn the warnings and the danger signs
Cast off the bow lines!
Track Name: Autumn
Tick-tock the clock is on the wall
It's calling me to bed
But I don't wanna hear it

Click-clack the ice it hits the glass
My cup is flowing full
But I don't wanna drink it

And I thought I knew it all
I had it figured out
But I guess I didn't

And now my back's against the wall
Tick-tock the clock is gonna fall
While time it crushes me


And the friends that I know best
Don't always know what's best
For me sometimes

And the one I truly love
Truly knows what love
it really is

It's waiting in the night
Hiding in the dark
Lights my way back home
I'm not alone

The leaves turn on the trees
Changing you and me
You and me

Their colors come and go
But I don't wanna know
What makes them fall

But trust in you and me
Because you see the tree
Is still alive

We're so alive
