Track Name: Rest
REST

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

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

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: What Is Real
What Is Real

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?

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?

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?
Track Name: The Drought
The Drought

Just wait till it’s all used up
You’ll get an answer
Trip and fall get bruised and cut
Well, we’re not helpless

Is it too late now to pull the plug
Is it permanent damage
This dry spell could last for years
If gone unmanaged

Without water we all drown
Without water we’re going down

Dust to Dust
Return we must
In our hands
We have to trust

Without water we all drown
Without water we’re going down
Track Name: Astronaut
Astronaut

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: Invisible Children
Invisible Children (JK 2012)

We could use your voice right now
Could you use your voice right now?
You could use your voice right now
To pass this on.

They have come into our village
Taken brother, sister and run
They teach the boys to kill and maim
The girls are stripped of blood

You could stand up and use your voice?
Could you stand up and use your voice?
Would you stand up and use your voice
To save a child?

We’re not the only ones here
Living on this earth
So get out
Stand Up
Stop hate and bigotry
The ones who make a difference are just like you and me

They have come into our village
Taken brother, sister and run
They teach the boys to kill and maim
The girls are stripped of blood

You could stand up and use your voice?
Could you stand up and use your voice?
Would you stand up and use your voice
To save a child?

We’re not the only ones here
Living on this earth
So get out
Stand Up
Stop hate and bigotry
The ones who make a difference are just like you and me.
Track Name: Devil's Remote Control
Devil's Remote Control

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

There’s something wrong
With selling your soul
To the Devil
Of Remote Control
To the Devil
Of Remote Control
Track Name: Valentine
Valentine

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

You’ve always got my back
Your keeping me in check

I would fall apart without you /\

Track Name: Sun2
Sun 2

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

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

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

yeah

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

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: Wide Open
Instrumental - just 1 glorious acoustic guitar.
Track Name: Useless In Eustis
Useless in Eustis

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

(breakdown)

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
