Track Name: Song For Me
Here's a song I wrote for me
to keep me company.
Just another melody
to calm me down.
And it goes Ah la la la...

Of all the songs that I can play
none feel quite this way.
It's easy come and easy go,
just like letting go.
And it goes Ah la la la...
Track Name: Favorite Boy
I'd be your favorite boy.
Would you be my favorite girl.

I'll be holding out and on for you
to be walking arm and arm with you.
I'll be holding out and on for you
to be walking arm and arm with you.
Track Name: Moonshine
Wasted all this time.
And all we seem to know.
Is there's a better way than this we pray.
That there's a better way than this we pray.

We may be blind in the moonshine.
On the edge of all the rushing by.
We're taking our time
not to spill the wine.
All that lies before will fall behind.

Because the burn causes song
and laughing freedom from our minds.
Some other-worldly ride.
Track Name: Schizophrenia
From one comes many, many I's.
Adam's gone crazy, lost his mind.
Your new moon baby calls and cries.
Armored and lately lost inside.
The animals are wild.
But the boy is just a child.

Is this real?
We once were you.
But you gave in
to be understood.

Oh the dreams you've undermined.
Oh the dreams you've undermined.

On and on and on we all go, we all go.
Track Name: Train Of Thought (Naropa Studio)
I've got a bottle of wine you wanna drink it tonight?
I may be drinking alone, feeling fine.

I've got a couple of pills you wanna take em' tonight?
Might be tripping alone, feeling fine.

Oh it may be my inebriation yeah.
Oh but I swear I can see you there.
My twisted senses they smell your hair.

Maybe there's something wrong with my train of thought.
But this light is too bright just to turn it off.
You spin me in circles just to see me fall.
You make me give it all.

Damn you and all your ways.
Damn you and all your ways.
Track Name: Desire (Live at the Fox 5/23/2002)
Your desire is calling you crazy but I
move to you and groovin we fall through the fire.
In your eyes your motions are ocean size.
For tonight give into your longings collide.

It's only a matter of time
until we give in to the wild.
Could be the time of your life
so let it go, let it go.

Move your body tonight.
Don't you stop until you get it right, yeah.

Can't you feel the music trying to tell you something.
That you gotta get down.
Can't you feel the music trying to tell you something.
That you gotta get down.
The sounds are all around.
Gotta get down.
The sounds are all around.
Gotta get down.
Track Name: On The Way Home
Did you let it down somewhere on the way home?
I mean why keep your guard up that long?
I only wanted us to feel normal.
After so long.

You go and fool yourself.
Wasting anytime that may be left.

Did you pick it up somewhere on the way home?
That I didn't come to try to expose.
Cause' everyone is hiding.
And it sure shows.

Maybe I fooled myself.
Thinking this reprise would do me well.

Why face a wall when your sure that nothing will change?
Name this fear or we can end it here.
Why face a wall when your sure that nothing will change?
Name this fear or we can end it here.

Did you let it down somewhere on the way home?
I mean why keep your guard up that long?
I only wanted us to feel normal.
After so long.

Why do we fool ourselves?
Wasting anytime that may be left.

We'd be together in that land.
We'd be together in that land.
When we go home,
to where we're bound.
Track Name: World To Three (Live from Temagami Lake)
Was there a name in mind for me?
Was the waiting to long to decide who I’d be?
Does three years away make you wonder
what to serve, and who deserves your time?

Maybe the world is more than me.
But look down cause you are the world to three.

All that you needed to give was your time.
Holding our hands would’ve been a sign.

Was there no time
for the daughters in line?
And then to confine when a child must play.
One runaway.

A promising golden world for he
who was the son and hier to be.
But your still the king reigning over.
To resign, your decline for me
will never be.

All that you needed to give was your time.
Holding our hands would’ve been a sign.

Maybe the world is more than me.
But look down cause you are the world to three.
Maybe the world is more than me.
But look down cause you are the world to three.
