BENEATH THE SUN AND BEYOND THE REACH OF GOD: I've crossed the oceans just to find you I've seen more emotion in your eyes than all my dreams We'll sail away to our secret corner Beneath the sun and beyond the reach of God I've searched the heavens just to find you I taste perfection and I'll never let you go We'll sail away to our secret meadow Beneath the sun and beyond the reach of God Where you can be now? You are the missing piece of me I cannot see you I need to be unblind Please sail away to our secret meadow Beneath the sun and beyond the reach of God
2.
RIDE TOWARD THE DREAM: Once before I have been here But pictures then were not so clear The dust and age has made them come alive The stakes are high, the score is tied I see you through my pair of eyes You couldn't understand me if you tried Grab your horse and saddle up It's time to go go go Don't stop riding 'til we get back home Ride, ride on Ride, ride toward the dream Thicker than a heart attack Jumping ahead to three laps back We all feel safe in our security Glass in front and plastic back We jump into the haystack Searching for the needle, set us free Grab your horse and saddle up It's time to go go go Don't stop riding 'til you get back home Ride, ride on Ride, ride toward the dream Integrate philosophies Assimilate astronomy With my shovel and pail, I plant a seed Originals and criminals And messages subliminal Time is all we have, it's all we need Ride, ride on Ride on, ride toward the dream

Waterproof 03:39
WATERPROOF: Thinking I might lose myself If I don't try to get it right So let's step up - we got all night Maybe I'm stuck in the past But I feel like I'm fading fast What do you think I should do? I think I need you with me now I think I need you with me now Thinking that I'll go insane If I should stay here one more day I'm trying not to lose it Think I might jump in the pool If sanity was waterproof My vision's getting blurry I think I need you with me now I think I need you with me now I need someone with me To save me from insanity And I think I know who Join me deep inside the maze And help me find the exit, babe It can only be you I think I need you with me now I think I need you with me now

Dead Desires 04:24
DEAD DESIRES: You're talking too loud I'm not in the mood Don't imprison me with your shit I don't wanna hear I don't wanna hear What you don't have to say I - I'm sick and tired of lies I can see it in your eyes They tell me everything I - I'm only on the outside Because you pushed me down And I can't take it anymore Find life outside Where your thighs run wild with your dead desires Find life outside without me Take my heart and leave The dust will settle down If you stop coming around here Let me have my peace This has gone far enough Don't try because it's useless No more of your tainted excuses I - I'm trying to move on And I wish that you were gone Far away, far away from me I - I'm only on the outside Because you pushed me down And I can't take it anymore Find life outside Where your thighs run wild with your dead desires Find life outside without me Take my heart and leave I'm sick and tired of lies I can see it in your eyes They tell me everything I - I'm only on the outside Because you pushed me down And I can't take it anymore Find life outside Where your thighs run wild with your dead desires Find life outside without me Take my heart and leave Take my heart and leave
5.
Zephyr 04:32
ZEPHYR: We are one and one for all eternity until we fall Carelessly onto the softest cloud I feel like I've been here before, somewhere in a dream I'm sure So how can I be certain I'm not spellbound? I wish for this to never end But then again, I need balance to appreciate the good in life I want to be your best friend and then more May I sweep you out the door? Ooh, ride the zephyr Like it's your first time Ooh, ride the zephyr forever Your foolish eyes tell me that all you see Is all that you need I can't disguise my feelings, nor do I want to I see only you All the stars spell your name There's a way for this fruitfulness to last for all time We must ride away, hide away, fly away From all that we know Ooh, ride the zephyr Like it's your first time Ooh, ride the zephyr forever From all that we know Into the unknown From all that we know Ooh, ride the zephyr Like it's your first time Ooh, ride the zephyr forever Forever, forever

NIGHTTIME RAINBOW: You keep saying somethin' 'bout somethin' And that's what keeps me runnin' Shepherd, lead your flock astray I'm sick of your complainin' Inside my head it's rainin' Let the flood carry me away Hey you, somethin' or somethin' I'm switchin' gears and I'm gunnin' I'm blastin' into hyperspace It's like a nighttime rainbow Saying what we already know On repeat mode, again I say It makes no difference, it's all the same Hey you I'm telling you to not come back Hey you I'm telling you to not come back again You keep saying somethin' 'bout somethin' And your ramblin' keeps me wonderin' How much more of this can I take? It's like a nighttime rainbow Burning a hole through the snow At the bottom of the hole, that's where I'll be You'd better not come after me Hey you I'm telling you to not come back Hey you I'm telling you to not come back again It's like a daytime fantasy Dreaming of the birds and bees Inside your world of ecstasy You'll find yourself, you won't find me Hey you I'm telling you to not come back Hey you I'm telling you to not come back again Hey you I'm telling you to not come back Hey you I'm telling you to not come back
7.
WAITING FOR THE MOON: Give me the ace of spades in a pocket trade Leaving a longtime lover left in the shade I'm staying underground 'til the moon comes out Keep it dark, keep it dark - turn the lights out It's getting late; I've overstayed my welcome It's a late night holiday anyway Reshuffle the deck and place your bet It won't be long now Yeah, waiting for the moon to rise Yeah, waiting for the moon Give me another shot, give me all you got I wanna, wanna feel close to alive I'm staying underground 'til the moon comes out Keep it dark so I won't have to hide It's getting late; I feel I'm getting stronger And I don't know why but I know how Put the cards away and take your place It won't be long now Yeah, waiting for the moon to rise Yeah, waiting for the moon

Old Shoes 03:41
OLD SHOES: Turning pages bound only by cheap memories The end is nearing as the sun descends behind the trees It seems there's never enough time to hold on But it is my time now, and for the first time I belong And I'll run fast enough to catch my dreams And I'll run away And I hope that you can muster up the courage to Bring yourself down from your cloud For some life may come easy, for others not so much And as hard as I wished, I never had a moment I could touch All of my life I've tried to hide everything I can Cause I'm not strong enough to show you who I am And I'll run fast enough to catch my dreams And I'll run away And I hope that you can muster up the courage to Bring yourself down from your cloud Maybe you'll listen hard and try to understand Maybe you'll see that this is not the life I planned Before I leave I want to give you my old shoes So you can walk my mile and have nothing to lose And I'll run fast enough to catch my dreams And I'll run away And I hope that you can muster up the courage to Bring yourself down from your cloud I tell you this in hopes that you don't make the same mistakes Keep sight of what's right before your good heart breaks Maybe you'll have the chance I didn't have at all If you can catch yourself before you fall If you can catch yourself before you fall

Polaroid 06:43
POLAROID: I ran across the world today thinking I could hide my face But you can't hide what you can't find and no one else can see Focus all my thoughts and concentrate hard on the lost I'm coming down fast so you'd better jump back And shield your eyes, cover your ears Protect your soul and take a picture, picture Overcome but keep the blinders on It's easier to see me through a polaroid You don't have to live the moment by my side We've got all the time in the world I flew under the sea today thinking I could find a way To revolutionize my life while keeping my disguise Focus all my fears and channel the bravest of tears It's coming down fast so you'd better jump back And shield your eyes, cover your ears Protect your soul and take a picture, picture Overcome but keep the blinders on It's easier to see me through a polaroid You don't have to live the moment by my side We've got all the time in the world Overcome but keep the blinders on It's easier to see me through a polaroid You don't have to live the moment by my side We've got all the time in the world I swam across the sky today to center and to concentrate I've found a revelation that can see through all the lies Focus all my energy and all the world opens up to me And you've never seen things quite like this So shield your eyes, cover your ears Protect your soul and take a picture

BLEED THE SYMPHONY: I'm crashing into the lighthouse I'm crashing into the ocean I'm going down, I'm circling 'round In this endless display of devotion I'm under the spyglass, exposed like a maze with a rat And everything is going too fast My will is restricted, restrained and conflicted Confusing the future, the present and past Torn between the things I love I don't know what I want Somebody show me the way out...if there is a way out I only suffer when I'm awake I'm forced to create While others subscribe and idealize I'm trying to hide I feel incomplete, I can't take the heat All the pressure that's building is giving me chills And the tall expectations release devastation Inside of my head, this void can't be filled Torn between the things I love I don't know what I want Somebody show me the answer When I'm forced to bleed the symphony I think it's over for me When I'm forced to bleed the symphony I think it's over and over and over and over for me I'm going to change the shape of the world With one step for man and one leap of death I'm going to change the shape of the world By writing a poem no one understands I'm going to change the shape of the world With one fucking bullet in one fucking gun I'm going to change the shape of the world Then I'll be somebody, then I'll be someone Torn between the things I love I don't know what I want Somebody show me the answer When I'm forced to bleed the symphony I think it's over for me When I'm forced to bleed the symphony I think it's over and over and over and over for me
