Track Name: The Great Unknown
I’m watching you rise into the great unknown
I hope you’ll be safe on your long bike ride home
You know, although the night is black
The wind is at your back

She’s stepping on stars to cross a great expanse
And casting them from the sky like shards of glass
And none were left when she was done
Except the morning sun

But she isn’t really in the sky
She’s only on a long bike ride
And starlight can seem so far away
Until she becomes the light of day

I’m watching you rise into the great unknown
I hope you’ll be safe on your long bike ride home
You know, although the night is black
The wind is at your back
The wind is at your back
Track Name: Come and Play
What’s wrong with this word?
What’s wrong with this sentence?
What’s wrong with what I say?
I’ll say it anyway

You hurt me before
But what was the question?
Have I mistaken you?
Well you’re mistaken too

You hurt me before
Only this time it’s much worse
I gave you back the world
You put it in your purse

Your softening glance
Is glancing off the snow
That’s formed around my heart
Now I’m storming through your door

Ooh, ooh, come and play
Ooh, ooh, it’s a game

If there’s love lost
It will be found again
If there’s love lost
It will be found again
I just don’t know when
Track Name: Kindness of Strangers
It’s only now that I see you’re gone
And when you wake up in another land
You rely on the kindness
Of strangers like me

I’m only one, there’s a hundred more
And every one has something new for you
To rely on

Run, if you find one
If you find one you should run
If you find one
If you find one you should run

And if she likes, she can turn the tide
She could steal the forces of the moon
She relies on the kindness
Of strangers like me

Run, if you find one
If you find one you should run
If you find one
If you find one you should run
Track Name: To the Gate
To the gate
To the gate again
My baby never let me in
He'll never let me in

Take away
Take away these chains
From me and I'm not coming back
I'm never coming back again

Not for you or no one
Not for you or no one

Baby's gone away
You keep your head they say
You'll be better off this way so

Oo oo ooh….

Through the gate
Through the gate you'll see
A friend of mine and ease him in
Create a need in him

Make it plain
Games you play all end the same
And I'm not playing them
And I won't play that way again

Not for you or no one
Not for you or no one

Baby's gone away
You keep your head they say
You'll be better off this way so

Oo oo ooh…
Track Name: Sow the Seed
Sow the seed, see the light, for the Spring to receive
Look to sky, to the field, in the back of your mind
Tragically, instantly, joyfully you will be
Thrown from your home, yellow walls, yellow sun

Without life, without death, without thought
Are the colors really coming through you?
So tragically, instantly, joyfully
But they never really understood you
No they never really understood you

The debris of the leaves, push the paint, paint the trees
Grow from the soil, from the wind, from the storm in your mind
Sow the seed, see the light, for the Spring to receive
You, fitfully, magically, instantly

Without life, without death, without thought
Are the colors really coming through you?
So tragically, instantly, joyfully
But they never really understood you
No they never really understood you
You, fitfully, magically, instantly
Track Name: Midnight Moon
She could see in me
The tendency to wallow on
Though I think she’s awfully mean
I know that she’s not wrong
Life is part of death
Oh what a lonely game to play
Though she drives me half insane
I know she’s not to blame

Devil in the details
Devil in the details
You’re my muse of the midnight moon

Midnight eyes this morning
I can’t seem to see you clear
Dreams of building churches
Stained glass faces in the mirror
You collect my sorrows, honey
Plant them in the field
We’ll come back tomorrow, love
And see just what they yield

Devil in the details
Devil in the details
You’re my muse of the midnight moon
Track Name: Sleeping Without Dreaming
Are you feeling without thinking?
I can’t feel a thing
Sweeping crumbs from off the table
I’ll take anything

Sleeping without dreaming
Cause the world just knocks me out

Everybody takes a number
Sitting in a room
Waiting for the sheep of slumber
To take care of you

Sleeping without dreaming
Cause the world just knocks me out

Sleeping without dreaming
Cause the world just makes me
Sleeping without dreaming
Cause the world just shakes me
Sleeping without dreaming
Cause the sun won’t wake me
Sleeping without dreaming
Sleeping without dreaming
Track Name: True Blue
My fire you're the red sky and my sun will rise for you
My fate got scrambled today like a broken egg
What could I do
To be back on the brick wall new?

My night you're the failing light where my dreams alight again
My field yields everything just to languish in your wind
I bend like a stem
With a bloom of baby's breath

If you were true blue
You'd be lighter too
I'm rising up through
Skies of black and blue
If you were true blue
You'd be lighter too
You'd be lighter too

Steal me from grief you're my thief and your riches drew me in
You'll keep it all for yourself make me realize again
You're just a fool
Teetering on the brick wall too

If you were true blue
You'd be lighter too
I'm rising up through
Skies of black and blue
If you were true blue
You'd be lighter too
You'd be lighter too
Track Name: Into the Clouds
Come into the clouds
Either north or south
And it may become your path
It's a foolish scene
And it may become your path

To the east there's sun
To the west there's none
And it may become your path
It's a foolish scene
And it may become your path
Stuck inside a dream
And it may become your path
Where no one finds you
Hope that no one finds you
How could someone find you
I can't even find you

And it may become your path
To set the masses free
And it may become your path
To chop the cherry tree
And it may become your wrath
To burst the bubble
Think you're crazy some will
Find new meaning in you
If you help them come to
Say you'll never make it
Don't lie down and take it
There's a limit don't you
Want to reach it won't you?
Track Name: Winterwalk
I'd like to take a winter walk today
The sky is gray
And the air
Is as cold as ice cream

In the morning look across the lake
There isn't anything
But at night on the ice
With the traffic lights

The cardinal dreams a song to sing
About the coming spring
And the wind with the headlights circling

Under the stars
Jupiter and Mars
Forgetting who we are

I'd like to take a winter walk tonight
And never talk
Call you up
And leave you listening
Track Name: Wake Up Machine
Wake up machine
Ooooooh
Because you keep on dreaming
If you don't wake up
And the people screaming
Have suffered enough

Underneath my finger
Is the power switch
Will the world stop turning
Or maybe come unhitched

Wake up machine
Ooooooh
Because you keep on dreaming
If you don't wake up
And your dreams keep scheming
I think we've had enough

Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Track Name: From Above
Staring at the rain
Through dirty window panes
The war began
And everything was strange
Except for you
And something that you said

It's always peaceful from above
It's always peaceful from above

Clouds like hills of snow
Are drifting in the light
That swallows us
And everything goes white
You'd never know
The wilderness below

It's always peaceful from above
It's always peaceful from above

Armies on the ground
Like pins into a map
Pack their bags
And march a muddy path
And soon they know
they won't be coming back

It's always peaceful from above
It's always peaceful from above
