Track Name: Beneath The Sun and Beyond The Reach of God
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
Track Name: Ride Toward The Dream
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
Track Name: Waterproof
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
Track Name: Dead Desires
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
Track Name: Zephyr
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
Track Name: Nighttime Rainbow
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
Track Name: Waiting For The Moon
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
Track Name: Old Shoes
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
Track Name: Polaroid
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
Track Name: Bleed The Symphony
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
