Track Name: Running Moon
Come on baby there's a world outside
Everything is moving in and out with the tide
I saw the moon and it looked alive
Spirit is restless and out of control
I guess there's nothing you can do but let it go
Just let it go
I love the way you talk to me
You put me down then you set me free
You had your way with my body
And what did you find there?
Was it anything new?
I just can't help but wonder
What am I to you
What am I to you
But don't be violent with a fragile man
If I'm climbing down this tower I'm gonna need a hand
Need a hand
Lend me a hand
So many drugs and they’re easy to take but if you have some faith then your heart won't break
Some kind of wisdom there to obtain
And if you find it come and let me know
Spirit is wild and out of control
Just let it go
When the moon is bright and I feel alive
Don't wanna die when the moon is bright and I feel alive in the strange new light running wild
But don't be violent with a fragile man
If I'm climbing down this tower I'm gonna need a hand
Need a hand
Lend me a hand
Track Name: Somewhere Wild
Never been so wanted before but wanted for what
Said what you used to fear is what you came to love
Lightning strikes on Church Street
Gotta get out alive
Don't want this inside of me
Got a long way to drive to somewhere wild
Somewhere wild
Somewhere wild
So some lover didn't treat you right
You gotta put that away
Strain to compartmentalize
But they’re all the same
Yeah it's all the same
Can't get any further down
It's all up from here
Don't wanna turn around now
I'm goin’ straight to somewhere wild
Somewhere wild
Somewhere wild
You wanna reaction
I give you silence and breathe the fullness of life cause something's died in me
In love with a strange world
Feeling high every day
Now I don't have a number
Out here I don't even have a name
I used to think that when I'd pass I'd go straight to hell
So glad that I'm seeing something else
Spirit in the sky
Clean in the water
Fire at night
I'm gonna stay up in somewhere wild
Somewhere wild
Somewhere wild
You wanna a reaction
I give you silence
Peaceful silence
Track Name: Redesign
Summer’s ending and you better clean up your room then take me to the bar and I'll undress for you
Saw this coming
Wasn't caught off guard
Knew the angle
Saw it from afar
You're a witness to the rage
You're a seeker of truth
But someone's got you pinned and locked inside a tomb
Always dreamin’ but never have the time to strip the wires, retch, read and redesign
A whisper in your ear as you're pressed against the wall
Hands above your head
Clothes scattered through the hall
You got me in here so I guess you changed your mind and ain't it always so hard to redesign
Redesign
Redesign
Lovers once again we are
Always there to break the fall
And in the afterlife will you find your ancient home
Now with open eyes
Open to it all
Track Name: Let It Be Done
Tangled up now in the vines
Reaching out for you to grip me but your hands are tied
When was the last time we slept with the fullness of the moon shining on the bed
You're leavin the light always on
Water the plants, play those records, maybe write a song
And I've been sleeping outside
I've got your nosey neighbors wondering why and what's the purpose of this
Please surprise me
God, I've been hating it

Don't let that animal inside
The price to pay is undetermined
Dance around me in the sun
Throw the garbage in the fire
Let the worst of it be done
Let it be done
Let it be done
Let it be done

In the light you're awake with nothing else in the way
Track Name: Gimme It Now
Gimme gimme it now
Maybe with or without
Maybe with or without
Gimme gimme it now

Maybe with or without
With or without
Gimme gimme it now
Gimme gimme it now

Even live in a home
Even live in a home
Maybe leaving here soon
Maybe with or without
With or without
Maybe without
Track Name: Well Wisher
Only a child can feel this way
Only a child can feel this way
When you turn and look at me
Telling me everything's alright
Straight from the heart through the eyes
They break the silence
And take me dancin
Aw in another life I hope to see them again
Only the strong say survive this and only your love can heal my mind
Struggle to take what you fail to see cause I’ve never had what you've given me
And I've climbed that mountain
I've walked the streets
Now no other town is calling me
Need no favors
I can be all alone
Somebody out there needs a home
Hey you the well wisher
You're right on time
Do me a solid and give me a ride
Only space can come between us and what never dies is the interest and when you're tired I can drive and when we get there we'll be alive
And before I can ask you
You say come on in
Aw in another life I hope to see you again
Track Name: Song for Aja
Goodbye sun hello moon
Say farewell to the afternoon
Work is done it's time to play
Say so long to a terrible day
And dance with me and I'll read to you
We'll take a bath and eat some food
And make a mess and take a walk and build a fire in the dark
And feel the warmth of the flame and watch the sky turn to day and fall asleep in my arms and that's all I want
And the sun light will trickle in like rain and it's alright
It's just another day but now I must leave
The boss is calling
Hope the daylight will be kind to me
Then it's goodbye sun hello rain and how the hell can we work today when it's pouring like a waterfall so why don't we call it off
Said I'm going home to my kid
I just can't work in this
Now here and you're in my arms and that's all it want
But the only thing that keeps me from you is something I hate but I have to do
Now the rain it just let up and so I must leave
Hope the daylight will be kind to me
You're my son and I'm your dad
Never thought that I'd say that to anyone but I'm glad it's you
You're a gift from a God it’s true
Track Name: Love in the Meantime
Drowning in a wasteland and it's getting worse
But only on the outside can you show it hurts
Just love me in the meantime
It'll get you through
If nothing ever goes right you got nothing to lose
Living in the moment
You get nowhere
Dizzy in the headlights
Just floating in the air
Just love me in the meantime
I think it's what you need
And I'll try and walk a straight line while I'm on my knees
I'm on my knees
But if you only but if you only knew
I love only I love only you
You
You can tie me up
Put my face down
We can do anything we want
I'm so open now
Just love me in the meantime
I'm only here for a night
You can leave me with no warning
You know I'll understand
Just a little bit of feeling with no strings attached
Just love me in the meantime
It's all I ask
While you're waitin’ for another man to come crawlin’ back he's comin’ back he's comin’
But if he only but if he only knew I love only I love only you
And if you only knew if you only knew I love only I love only you
You
Under streetlights you're runnin’ and your fingers feel it comin’ and the feeling is growing stronger then you know
Just love me in the meantime
I’m only here for a night
Track Name: Temporarily Blind
I'm so curious about the ending
Think I'll stick around and keep on living with a restless mind and a heart that burns
Guess I'll stay in line
Gonna wait my turn
And I'm also curious about you
And that fire in your eyes and what it is you hold on to when there's nothing left and nothing feels right but you're only temporarily blind
There's a solitude that comes from surrender and I was given enough love to last me through the winter
Do lock that door and I'll serve my time
They say that freedom lives only in your mind
And when you turn away
It must feel lonely strange news today slid under the front door
You were chained to a wicker chair then it turned to splinters
And you're alone out there
Under a cold moon
Under a cold moon
With some silhouette that doesn't respond to you
Many shades of grey that we must swim through
Where do you draw the line
Must know what's comin’
But you can't decide
Till you feel your feet runnin’
To that only one thing that makes you sorry and strips your fingers and leaves ya temporarily blind
But you're only temporarily blind
You were only temporarily blind
Track Name: Be My Eyes
Once a friend gave a song to me
Heard the voice of a ghost echo and ring
Ain't it hard enough just to get through the day
With too much on your mind and nothin to say
Lift me up
Take my hand
I've had more than I could stand
Sitting here all alone
Rockin back and forth
Be my eyes
Take my song
Once you had a family but the house you built crumbled to the sea and separated from the earth
Split the sky in two
Now you wander alone
Aimless and blue
With nothing to defend
Like a candle in the wind
On the side of the road it's getting dark it's getting cold
So be my eyes
Take my song
Lift me up
