Track Name: I Can See you
you think you can be the one
when it all comes undone
finding the space and the place to erase the mistakes
rewinding from behind that mirrored looking glass
I can see your past and your future
I can see from tomorrow to yesterday

you try and deceive with your greed and misdeed guiding with blind eyes
foregoing the aside
due to fear of what one might hear
will this trouble one day consume
and the deceived become achieved
believe all the lies you reprise and fit to size
but you will never be free


I can see you - I can


You pray for the meek who seek nothing more
than ignorance itself
to keep the innocent clean the obscene is unseen
cascading black dreams all part of your creed
but me you can’t change
no you can not change
no you can not change me.


I can see you - I can


last time they cried the glass tear in your eye
broke apart again what could have been
magnificently rising they raced only to be displaced
enough of the fight forfeiting the right
for the wrongs you have thrust
but I believe
yes I believe in them
in them I do believe.


I can see you - I can



I can… see you .. try to hide from my eyes…. your disguise is compromised … unhand your plan…
Track Name: Rusty Old Town
Rusty old Town
built up on one side of the hard road
steel rails driven through Your heart

The rails still shake
but not like before
the train stops no more
just blows by with it’s freight

Dear Town, I’m so close to You
even when I’m miles away
years of cracks and bruises have left You broken and blue
but it’s You I see
when I look at me

Quiet main street
once bustling with blood
born in a cloud of coal dust

Still and grey
the mines below
empty and hollow
echo of the day

Dear Town, I’m so close to You
even when I’m miles away
deep ditches and crooked streets have kept You real and true
it’s You I see
when I look at me

You taught me how to stand alone
with hungry space for my dreams to grow

Sugar leaf tree
alive in the spring
lights the land in the fall

Branches quake
like reaching hands
the trunk still stands
rooted in place

I’m so very close to You, dear Town
even when I’m miles away
those who You love have kept You above the ground
and it’s You I see
when I look at me

I am Home
Track Name: Sleeve
feel it coming up now
the sound
floating in like a cloud




soul like a kite is above me
mind full of might recovering
body strapping and sound,
unfound

I can’t hide
what I can’t find

thought slowly releasing
all that has never been missing
sight lifting the ground,
unfound

I can’t hide
what I can’t find

Track Name: So Many Roads
The dipping sun in the Western Sky
entices me to drive
When I get behind the wheel
my headlights reveal

There’s So Many Roads
and I can choose any one
That is the reason I drive this automobile
it’s the feeling of Freedom.

Next rest stop 25 miles
but I blow by with a smile
Ain’t gonna miss a moment of this drive
Don’t want that road to pass me by

There’s So Many Roads
and I can choose any one
That is the reason I drive this automobile
it’s the feeling of Freedom.
Track Name: along the way
Another broken dream
buried beneath it’s own weight
sometimes the thought can be miles ahead of the deed
when action mustn’t wait Fate demonstrates
Along the way
lights flicker and fade
along the way
tides roll in
if you can’t face all that you’ve been
you miss the chance for a new dream to begin.
Track Name: Big Bash
hey brother
where are you goin man?
hands held up with that crazy look in your eye
oh in your eye
you best slow down

next time you crash
might be your last
in a big bash


yeah brother
I see you runnin man
in a head first tilt guaranteed to fly
oh so high
clear the runway

next time you crash
might be your last
in a big bash



everything is stretched out at your feet
you burn it down – burn it down

everything is within your reach
you blow it up – blow it up



say brother
where have you been man?
so strung out, clearly plain to see
at least to me
signal distress

next time you crash
might be your last
in a big bash

Track Name: Dancin with the Flame
started off easy enough
everyone around messing with the stuff
seemed so commonplace
could look it right square in the face
when the fire starts, you call it by name
keep on dancing with the flame

kept it up long enough
when they would call you could bluff
it was not plain or insane
just another way to get through the day
when the fire burns, you’re the first to lay claim
keep on dancin with the flame


(well you) Get what you paid for and you paid for what you get
what goes around comes around; but you ain’t come around yet
feel so high – but you’re so low
(gotta) nose full with nothing to show
(but you) keep on dancing with the flame


look away
you always look away
why do you look away
look away


too scared to believe
afraid to see
within reach
reality
Track Name: With A Smile
Oh the love I seek
Is the love you give
Baby that’s why
It’s you I miss

When you stopped coming around
I just sat with my head in the ground

So darling don’t you see
That I sit in this misery

Wishing you would dig me out, dust me off, & lift me up - with a smile.

Oh the love I seek
Is the love you give
Baby that’s why
It’s you I miss

Why - I did not jump
Just laid around like some chump

Should have been running after you dear
Screaming that I want you near

Telling you I’d seek you out, sweep you off, & hold you close - just for a smile – with a smile.


Oh the love you give
Is the love that is his

Now things have changed in oh so many ways
I still think about you these days

see Our Past, from a distance away
I just sit here & say

Wishing that you’ll find it out, roll it off, & pick it up – with a smile.
Track Name: Anywhere We Choose
when I go to sleep at nite
will you come along
on a trip with me up to the moon

just close your eyes
and sing this song
think about the shining blue

we can be anywhere we choose


floating by
a shining star
flapping fast I pass by you

looking down
I can see Mars
no bigger than your left shoe


we can be anywhere we choose


with you in outer space we laugh

imaginations in place we dream



touching down
open my eyes
and we’re back in my bedroom

play today
and then tonite
maybe swim inside a spoon

we can be anywhere -oh
we can be anywhere we choose
Track Name: Brighter Light
What do you see
when you look right through me?
I see a Brighter Light shining into tomorrow

What do you feel
when that secret is revealed?
I feel a warmer light brightening my tomorrows

You may dwell in darkness you may be alive in the warmth of the sun
beyond the snares & glares a new hope has begun
(including everyone)

What do you see
that creates a need?
I see a Brighter Light shining into tomorrow

What do you feel
that brings you to a kneel?
I feel a warmer light brightening my tomorrows.

You may dwell in darkness you may be alive in the warmth of the sun
beyond the snares & glares a new hope has begun

We are all The Problem
We are all The Solution

What makes you feel there’s hope in this place?
What reflects in the smile on another’s face (I believe)
It’s a Brighter Light shining into tomorrow
I see a Brighter Light shining into tomorrow
Shining into tomorrow….
Track Name: Otherside
you don’t ask the questions
when your afraid of the reasons why
you know my answer
is don’t be afraid to try
try
you have nothing to fear
no reason to disappear
I am by your side


I can stand the silence
though I always seem to bang around
you can have the first & the last words
just as long as I can make a sound
hear the sound
I have nothing to fear
no reason to run from here
you are by my side


we own our corner
for every penny that its worth
we may be mistaken
but one thing may be for sure
the otherside
see you on the otherside
believe the past too long
see you on the otherside
