Track Name: Rest
REST (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

THERE'S A WIND AND IT COMES FROM NOWHERE
COME INSIDE I'LL TAKE YOU IN
WARM YOUR BONES BY THE FIRESIDE
HAVE YOURSELF A GLASS OF GIN

TELL ME WHAT IT IS THAT'S ON YOUR MIND
WHAT TROUBLES YOU FROM DEEP WITHIN
WHAT HAVE THOSE LINES WRITTEN ON YOUR FACE
HAVE NO CARES OR WORRIES IN THIS PLACE
RESTING IN THIS SPACE

(CHORUS)
ALL YOU NEED IS YOUR PEACE OF MIND
ALL YOU NEED IS TO REST AND UNWIND
COME INSIDE I'LL TAKE YOU IN
WARM YOUR BONES BY THE FIRESIDE

THERE’S A SENSE OF UNEASE IN YOUR VOICE
A WORRIED MIND WILL MAKE YOU ILL
IN YOUR EYES I CAN SEE THE DISGUISE
TO SEE THE TRUTH WILL TAKE SOME WILL

WELL MY FRIEND WHAT IT IS THAT'S GOT YOU CROSSED
WHAT IS IT YOU CAN'T LET GO
WHAT HAVE THOSE LINES WRITTEN ON YOUR FACE
HAVE NO CARES OR WORRIES IN THIS PLACE
WE MEET FACE TO FACE
Track Name: Run
Run (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

Waiting, Desiring
I have walked right into a trap
Disillusioned, Conspiring
I can do much better than
Wait a minute, What is in it?
Will it give me a heart attack?
I'm losing all my marbles and
I can't seem to put them back

So I run I run, run, run, run run

I am melting, I'm perspiring
Has my focus been at a loss
Had a hard enough time
Trying to turn my head off
Have I lost it? Am I failing?
I'm sure it's all my fault
At least I know that I'm the one responsible
It is not your fault

Should I run?
Run Run Run Run Run

I don't care but you remind me of me
A mirror reflection, an image reflector
It could never be

You can stay with me until fall has come and
All my money's gone

Waiting, Desiring
I have walked right into a trap
Disillusioned, Conspiring
I can do much better than
Wait a minute, What is in it?
Will it give me a heart attack?
I'm losing all my marbles and
I can't seem to put them back

So I run I run, run, run, run run
Track Name: Outlook
Outlook (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I just want to sleep
I just want to cry
I just want to lay me down to die
Sometimes it makes me sad
Sometimes it drives me mad
Talking with myself
Lying to myself

I can hear a voice
Thank god I have a choice
I'm fortunate I know to live in this country
Where freedom isn't free
It's costing you and me
Our families life expectancy

Wake up, Stand up, Walk on, Hands up
Look up, Stay Strong, Live life, Live long

I can't help it when I'm waiting for you
To drive this ship through outer space
While I'm standing in the same place
Seems odd I know to do something like this
Track Name: Astronaut
Astronaut (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

We wait, we watch
The hatred swells
We are so afraid of what they tell us

The facts are wrong
Someone is lying
Better not trust anyone

They keep lying
You are flying
You are an astronaut

Keep on buying
No use trying
We are all astronauts

We are all so angry
You say you're not
Denial explosions
Connect the dots

Spinning information
In bytes and clips
Video chains and audio whips

They keep lying
You're still flying
You are an astronaut

Keep on buying
No use trying
We are all astronauts

You are amazed
I am impressed
They use big words on my TV set

You are amazed
I am impressed
They use big words on my TV set

They keep lying
You're still flying
You are an astronaut

Keep on buying
No use trying
We are all astronauts
Track Name: Devil's Remote Control
Devil's Remote Control
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

There’s something wrong
With selling your soul
To the Devil
Of Remote Control
To the Devil
Of Remote Control

I’ve spent my life
Looking for a diamond

There is no life
Without thought
There is no soul
Without art
There is no soul
Without heart

I’ve spent my life
Looking for asylum

I’ve made my choice
I’ll use my voice
I’ve got one chance to live
I’m gonna give give give
I’m gonna give give give
I’m gonna live live live
I’m gonna live live live
Track Name: Valentine
Valentine
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I wrote a simple song
A lovely Valentine
To say I love you
One hundred times

A song with simple lines
That you could memorize
To be a song that perseveres
Through one hundred thousand years

Our hearts are so complex
We don’t know what to expect
You’ve always got my back
You’re keeping me in check

I would fall apart without you
I love you

2x
I love you I love you I love you
I love you I love you I I’m not afraid to tell you
I love you





I wrote a simple song
A lovely Valentine
To say I love you
One hundred Million times

Sung with simple lines
That you could recognize
A song that perseveres
Through one hundred billion years

Our hearts are so complex
We don’t know what to expect
You’ve always got my back
Your keeping me in check

I would fall apart without you /\
I love you /\

3x /\
I love you I love you I love you
I love you I love you I I’m not afraid to tell you
I love you
Track Name: Sun 2
Sun 2 (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I need to see, I need to feel
I need to feel your light upon my skin
When you come around you bring me sanity
Warm inviting sun I worship thee so

In the winter depths of darkness
The pain grows in my eyes
My hand is cold to touch
My body aches for warmth
Take me in, get me out of this house
Warm inviting sun I worship thee so

Give me gardens by the sea
The smell of ocean breeze
A taste of love on the tip of tongue
My head in the clouds and the rhythm of the sun

Put my body in a sling between two trees for fun
The warmth of the sand in the palm of my hands
A drink of the nectar fermenting in the sun
I'll take gold warm rain between happiness and pain
Warm inviting sun I worship you so
Warm inviting sun I worship thee so
Track Name: The News
The News (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I'm awake I'm alive
I can crawl into the moonlit sky
When I’m lost, when I lose
There's no truth for me to chose
Leaves me confused

from the news, with the blues
Without truth in the media
Are we as blinded and shielded as we feared

There's no time left to lose
Overpopulate planet earth
Nature here, over there
Overlooked and we're under aware
Running scared

from the news, with the blues
Without truth in the media
Are we as blinded and shielded as we feared
I'm confused by the news
With the blues in the media
We are as blinded and shielded as we feared
Track Name: Walking Talking Drinking
Walking Talking Drinking
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I went out walking with myself
I went out walking and talking to myself
I went out drinking with myself
I went out drinking and thinking to myself


I went out wandering by myself
I went out wandering and pondering to myself
I was out dreaming with myself
I went out dreaming trying hard to believe inside myself

It’s been a long, long way back to you
It’s been a long, long way back to you
It’s been a long, long way back to you
It’s been a long, long way back to you

I went out walking with myself
I went out walking and talking to myself
I went out drinking with myself
I went out drinking trying hard to believe inside myself
Track Name: Book Of Stars
Book of Stars
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

Well it seems like an age
Since I left you behind
The path we have left undefined

I carry a weight
That I just won’t let go
It would be easier if I didn’t know

There politics are fake
We have lost all control
Injustice makes me sick to my soul

The leaders aren’t seen
Senate puppets on strings
Might as well be fairies with wings

It’s a twisted cruel joke
When we think we are great
We’ve given the world fuel to hate

No nothing is true
Nothing is fact
You cannot know
Can you deal with that?

If Jesus is sun
The sun is so bright
The book is of stars in the sky
Track Name: Useless in Eustis
Useless in Eustis (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

Just north of Rangeley in the mountains of Maine
In the town of Eustis dirt roads are one lane
We had plenty of beer and a trunk full of skunk
Just what you need for a high, for a drunk
With our guns on the rack there was no looking back
When the pedal went down the cops sprung their trap

Now we’re useless in Eustis
The pigs tried to juice us and take away all of our guns
The booze made us clueless
We’re useless in Eustis
Now we’re on the run

With a 30 aught six and a box full of shells
The bullets start flying when a young rebel yells
At 80 miles an hour we’re risking our lives
All I could think was my wife or the knife
Hell if we get caught she’ll spit in my face
She’s gonna be mad better keep up the pace

Now we’re useless in Eustis
The pigs tried to juice us and take away all of our guns
We’re not ruthless or toothless
Just useless in Eustis
Now we’re on the run

We’d been drinking all day. We’d partied all night
When the tires kicked up dust we were out of sight
Laughing and singing wait, what’s that a head
Slammed on the brakes or we might be dead

Nine big ole moose they were blocking the road
Took out our guns and fired off a load
Moose were every way running we didn’t kill one
Cause we’re not poachers just guys on the run

Now we’re useless in Eustis
The pigs tried to juice us and take away all of our guns
They sent moose to confuse us
We’re useless in Eustis
Now we’re on the run
Track Name: Autumn
Autumn (warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

Could it be that we have just begun this journey
Far beyond all reality
Flipped, tripped and persuaded
Almost forgotten, Almost jaded
To the other side of the fallen rain
Say we believe, Say we are gone
Say we don’t belong here

Even there I cry
Entombed in the truth I see
Even There I die
Thoughtless loss to me
Guess I’ll begin my healing now

Once upon a time we could see into our souls
Caring for our humanity
Flipped, tripped and persuaded
Almost forgotten, almost jaded
On a search for inner peace to shine again
Say we believe, Say we are gone
Say we don’t belong here

Even there I cry
Entombed in the truth I see
Even There I die
Thoughtless loss to me
Guess I’ll begin my healing now
Track Name: Mother In-Law From Arkansas
Mother In-Law From Arkansas
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

She’s my mother in-law from Arkansas
She’s the meanest woman I ever saw
Fist clenched tight
Looking for a fight
My mother in-law from Arkansas

I married the sweetest girl I ever met
The prettiest girl so true you bet
I wasn’t quite prepared to meet her mother yet

I couldn’t believe what I did see
Milk and cereal came flying all over me
I did cry and she laughed herself silly

She’s my mother in-law from Arkansas
She’s the meanest woman I ever saw
Spitting and a cussing and
Smoking and a chewing
My mother in-law from Arkansas

Now I’ve known, I won’t forget
13 long years of blood and sweat
My mother in-law isn't washed up yet

She’s been plotting to take my life
She threatened to kill me with our wedding cake knife
She doesn't want her daughter to be my wife

She’s my mother in-law from Arkansas
She’s the meanest woman I ever saw
Chuggin and a druggin
Doesn’t like huggin
My mother in-law from Arkansas

She’s my mother in-law from Arkansas
Talking with a slur of that Southern Drawl
Fist clenched tight
Looking for a fight
My mother in-law from Arkansas
Track Name: Wake
Wake
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I would like to create peace
Passing through an inner me
Take the time to wonder why
Check myself to the other side

I will wake unto the setting sun
I will do my best to see that it is done

I am here for you and me
To wonder why and not agree
Question law and authority
Love myself
Set me free

I will wake unto the setting sun
I will do my best to see that it is done

I'm not sure my feelings are confused
Mismatched and unattached to the things I know I love


I will wake unto the setting sun
I will do my best to see that it is done
Track Name: Don't Wait
Don't Wait
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!


I've tried and tried, I've tried so hard
Just to keep it going
Switch hook bait and peel my skin
The universe takes it over

It's true what they say
It's harder this way
I get along

If I wait, wait, justify hate
Just a moment longer
Catch, flick, sting and steel my soul
Will it make me whole

It's true what they say
It's harder this way
I get along

If you wait for the sun to drown
You'll never, never get off your feet
If your fear keeps you back from it
You will never know victory
Track Name: Honestly
Honestly
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

Honestly, I fell asleep when you were saying goodbye
I’ve been so tired and unaware
This dream has it’s control
Honestly, my mind has been a mess
I am starting to see more clearly

Honestly, in the past I’ve made mistakes
They’ve made me who I am
I’m starting to believe I am good enough
I am ready for it now
Honestly, I couldn’t have done it
without you by my side

I’ve been keeping this dream alive
It makes me realize
I could do it along
I’ve never felt this strong
Track Name: The Next Thousand Years
The Next Thousand Years
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

In the next thousand years
Will we move amongst the stars?
Can we plan ahead that far?

In the next thousand years
Who will care for your blood?
What will be your history?

Get out of your head
Get out of your mind
We’re running out of time

Bring back the love
Bring back the high
There’s no turning back this time

In the next thousand years
Will we move amongst the stars?
Can we plan ahead that far?

In the next thousand years
Who will care for your blood?
What will be your history?

In the next thousand years
Who will care for your blood?
What will be your history?
Track Name: Protector Provider
“Protector Provider”
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I hope I can be strong for you
When you come along
I watch the papers stacking up
Sometimes I can barely breathe
I wonder how we’ll ever make it through
Somehow people always do.

Call me
Protector
I’ll be there no matter what you do.

Call me
Provider
I’ll do for you the best I can do

I dream about you while I am still awake
A vibrant mix of melody from a soul that tells the truth
There’s so much darkness in this world
I hope to teach you what you need
To help you help other people too
To leave this place a better place than the one you were born into

Call me
Protector
I’ll be there no matter what you do.

Call me
Provider
I’ll do for you the best I can do
Track Name: What Is Real
What Is Real
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

There is not a good reason why I should let go
Of what is bothering me

Just a parasitic tick a tick you would like to burn off
The blood still poisons me

Even though I’m small
My big idea is tall
In uncomplicated lines I tell you how I feel

Without a care or thought in structure we get caught
Help me while I suffer
What is really real?

What is real?
Tell me, Tell me
How you feel
Touch me. Hold me.
Soothe me. Warm me.
Help me. Control me.
What is Real?
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I need to make a change but
My brain stays the same
Could you start by killing me

These feelings, Swelling,growing, feeding
Keep the pain where I stick

The air is thick and full
My head is caving in
My feelings overwhelmed
My blood is getting thin

I’m lifting off my hat to cool my dreams of hate
Fuel for my illusion
What is really real?
Track Name: Change My Mind
Change My Mind
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

You don’t like this
You don’t like that
It’s all I hear from you

You tell me how you know what’s good for everyone but yourself
You can’t see the fear that’s in your eyes

Open up my friend
Come on, sit right down
Tell me all of your fears

Get it off your chest
Put your mind to rest
Let’s try and make it all clear

You complain in a universal style
You relate by bringing the mood down

You don’t grow you just keep picking the pieces up
You don’t change, you expect the world to stop

It's time you realize you don’t have it figured out
You probably never will
Except your fate it’s time to make a change
You’ve been stuck like this for so long

Change my mind
Heal my soul
Meditate
Increase control
