Track Name: Careful What You Wish
Careful what you wish ‘cause you might get it
Careful what wish because you might see
It comes along the way if you just let it
Might be on the road to Tennessee

Packed up all your memories and took them for a ride
They were all you needed them to be
But the future’s the past so you threw them away
Then you realized that you were finally free

On Halloween you went as a coyote
I saw you on the side of the road
I told you all my dreams and then you scurried
Howling to the sky with all you know

Letting go can bring so much sorrow
But only if you think eternally
You’re with me now, that’s all that matters
The scarlet night becomes another sea
Track Name: Sleeper
Last time I saw you
You were so sweet
Drifting through flowers
A magical piece
Of my life passing by
The memory holds me to you
You were the one
I expected
To float through the dew

I thought I knew you
And I really did
The waves tossed the ferry
The passengers slid
Under water because
Your essence was drowning them there
You would become
Delta breezes
That flowed through the air

Last time I saw you
You were so sweet
Drifting through flowers
A magical piece
Of my life passing by
The memories hold me to you
You will become
Delta breezes
And float through the dew
Track Name: Martians
NEVER REALLY CARED
IF THE PLANETS WERE ALIGNED
ORBITING THE SUNS
EXISTING IN MY MIND

ITS A BEAUTIFUL LIGHT
SHINING ALL THE WAY

NEVER REALLY COULD
STAND THE TEST OF TIME
SOME ARE FAR AHEAD
SOME ARE FAR BEHIND

ITS A BEAUTIFUL LIGHT
SHINING ALL THE WAY

TRIP BETWEEN THE STARS
TRIP BETWEEN THE MOONS
SEND WAVES INTO THE SEA
CAPTAIN SINGS HIS TUNE

ITS A BEAUTIFUL LIGHT
SHINING ALL THE WAY

NEVER REALLY CARED
IF THE PLANETS WERE ALIGNED
ORBITING THE SUNS
EXISTING IN MY MIND

ITS A BEAUTIFUL LIGHT
SHINING ALL THE WAY
Track Name: Squigs
we exist before our essence
but you said i was wrong
and something comes between us
what do you say

thirsting for the arrow
to shoot ourselves again
and time becomes important
when there’s only so much left
the fear of fear is power
to nothings really there
and nothing will come between us
what do you say

we are whirlwinds who wish were were rocks
Track Name: Disconnect
since i’ve been gone a long time
you’re waiting around for the sunshine
well i guess i can see that
no one will be like me

since i’ve been gone a long time
i’m waiting ‘round for the sunshine
don’t expect you to be there soon
and i come back to you

don’t expect to be there soon
when i come back
when i come back
when i come back
when i come back to you
Track Name: Sunrise Ocean Bender
Nothing to believe in

Nothing worth seeing

It's ok

The dunes are frozen

Throw rocks in the ocean

The waves are astounding

The heart keeps on pounding

It's ok

Your arms are golden

Your sunlights are broken

When night is falling

You hear me calling
Can you tell me how to see

Can you tell me how to look

I can't find my way inside

I haven't read the book

It's ok

The sunrise ocean bender

The sunrise ocean bender
Track Name: Friends
Somebody's walking uptown
With your friends
You look
They're not around
Doo doo doo doo

Someday with a friend
And then you turn around
Its the end
One day with a friend
And then you turn around
Its the end
Doo doo doo doo

They're not around
They're not around
They're not around
They're not around
When you
When you
When you
Need them
