Track Name: Wild Green Yonder
Stepping out with our heads full of mantras
Two of us side by side
Slidin on down the fern-covered valley
To the universe inside
Yeah it's a beautiful day for

Lookin up
Into the wild green yonder and thinkin about
The way that the trees are holding hands with the sky
I'm lookin up

Standing still in a dried up streambed
Drinking the energy
Feeling the ghosts of yesterday's river
Washing the dust off of me
What a way to spend a sunny day

I'm lookin up
Into the wild green yonder and thinkin about
The way that the trees are holding hands with the sky
I'm lookin up

Hear the sounds of footsteps falling
Joining with the songbird calling
To see my place on the forest path
Makes me want to laugh

Placing my hands on the ancient tree
With the earth moving under my feet

I'm lookin up
Into the wild green yonder and thinkin about
The way that the trees are holding hands with the sky
I'm lookin up

I'm lookin up
Into the wild green yonder
Looking up just thinkin about
The way that the trees are holding hands with the sky
I'm lookin up
Track Name: Days Go By
Life was easier you know
Where they'd go I would go
And I would not ask why
My head's in the promised land
My feet are in the sinking sand
As the days go by

When you're playing in a marching band
You gotta know where you're supposed to stand
She wants to run before she crawls
And I don't mind it at all
This moment's alright with me
Whether or not the sun shines on me
As the days go by

We're programmed for resentment
Toward displays of contentment
Nobody wants to fly

Around here when the snow comes down
Nothing moves in the whole damn town
Folks complain when the rain falls
But I don't mind it at all
This moment's alright with me
Whether or not the sun shines on me
As the days go by
Track Name: Smile
Him and her separated by this moving train
Trying to force their feelings through a dirty window pane
They don't see me watching from my seat across the aisle
There's something 'bout goodbyes that make me smile

Now their story plays out in directions I don't see
But I can't stop my wandering mind from taking leave of me
It's traveled round to a prairie town where I have kept my soul
My boy and girl will keep it from the cold

I think maybe tomorrow I will fly across the sea
And hold you close in my arms for a while
I can't fix a single thing my beautiful sweet boy
But I know I can make you smile

Eleanor, I never knew you, never saw your face
Never heard you laugh or cry or felt your small embrace
You were poised to change it all for me and mine it's true
This silent space, I'm keeping it for you

I think maybe tomorrow I will fly across the sea
And hold you close in my arms for a while
I can't fix a single thing my broken hearted girl
But I know I can make you smile

The trouble with tomorrow, it's a day away from me
And this moment's keeping me from being free
Track Name: Bloody Suzy
Hey little Suzy come around, come around
Mama's in the kitchen and Papa went to town
Get the job done before the frost hits the ground
Hey little Suzy come around, come around
Hey little Suzy come around

Hey little Suzy roll up, roll up
To the rundown farm in your pickup truck
Ol' Bessie's bit the dust, farmer ain't got no luck
Hey little Suzy roll up, roll up
Hey little Suzy roll up

Hey little Suzy
Little Suzy come around
Hey little Suzy
We know you get around

Hey little Suzy tell us why, tell us why
Lots of meat on her bones, it wasn't time to die
She didn't look sick yet here she lies
Hey little Suzy tell us why, tell us why
Hey little Suzy tell us why

Hey little Suzy with a knife, with a knife
Cover up the eyes of the farmers wife
If you do it well, you might save a life
Well hey little Suzy with a knife, with a knife
Hey little Suzy with a knife

Hey little Suzy
What you doing with the knife?

Hey little Suzy in the mud, in the mud
Hold a heart in your hand, it's got no thud
Let the rain pour down to wash away the blood
Hey little Suzy in the mud, in the mud
Hey little Suzy in the mud

Hey little Suzy
Down in the mud
Hey little Suzy
Let the rain come down to wash away the blood
Track Name: Original Face
Gonna find my original face
The one I had so long ago
The one I wore in a different space
Before my mother and my father were born

I can put my hands together
I can make that clapping sound
And I can clap one hand forever
Until I see myself coming around

Who's dragging this corpse around?
Who's telling it what it needs?
The same person as seven years ago
The same man who was a child before
The same god who used to be a dream

Gonna find my original face
The one I had so long ago
The one I wore in a different space
Before my mother and my father were born

My attention is a reckless thing
Repetition makes my head ring
Saw the Buddha coming up the road
So I killed him

Gonna find my original face
The one I had so long ago
The one I wore in a different space
Before my mother and my father were born
Track Name: Poets And Martyrs
We like to stay up at night
Under electric moonlight
When all the interesting people are out
To savour the dark delights
And shadows beneath the fog

We are your sons and daughters
We are the poets and martyrs

The sun watches each step we take
And blinds the dreams we make
Eyes of the stars do not judge
The night knows you're awake
We'll make the guard dog bark

We are your sisters and brothers
We are the lovers and murderers

We're the girl in the back of the car
And the boy who takes it too far
We are the suffering who fall
We are the ones running away from home
We are the ones who want to be left alone
We are never the drones

The time for living's when they're in bed
Follow the trails inside your head
Belief, we give it room to roam
We share the darkness with the dead
We seek what cannot be found

We are your sons and daughters
We are the poets and martyrs
We are your mothers and fathers
We are the evolution
Track Name: 7th Avenue
There's a windstorm blowing up the dust
at the side of the road on 7th Avenue
I stop to take a picture
And remember that I miss her

So I keep on walking up the side of the road
to my place on 7th Avenue
But there's nothing there for me
And it's getting too dark to see

Do you remember that day in the hospital
When we took a walk to escape the smell
The sun fell on our skin
And we felt okay again
You thought that I would rescue you
But I was scared there was nothing that I could do
It turned into a dream
With sunshine and ice cream

And I keep on walking up the side of the road
to my place on 7th Avenue
Can't believe it's almost time
To leave it all behind

Well I'm thinking of the colours hanging on your wall
How it was your sweet mind that created them all
Do you know what you are?
The greatest thing by far
I was the one who went a different way
I hurt the world so it hurts me back every day
Redemption's a disguise
It's only in your eyes

So I'll meet Marty by the riverside
And we'll stroll up 7th Avenue
Every word he says is true
But it's ripping me in two

Do you remember that life we had way back when
We danced in the light with our beautiful friends
And then it turned into a dream
It turned into a dream
Track Name: When You're Alone
When you're alone, miles from home
You will be one, you'll be your own
Look at your hands, what are they doing
Picking up sand, letting it go

Somebody's trying to pull you under
If he had footsteps they'd sound like thunder
Your eyes are open there's no mistaking
The man inside you don't want you waking

Jonas and PJ around the table
Trying to teach me this harmony
But out the window I see her smiling
Feeling the grass and waiting for me
Track Name: Tonight Everything Is Alright
She doesn't know where she is
She isn't sure of where she's going
But if you see her out tonight, it's alright,
Cause you'll know she's only flowing

She met the first boy on the line (he seemed fine)
Wasn't as tall as she'd been hoping
Next one took her swimming in a stream, what a dream
But you know she's only flowing

She's looking for her place to stand
Right beside some perfect man, that's her plan
But tonight, everything is alright

She calls crying on the phone when she's feeling alone like yesterday
Another year another heart broken again cause the end's not like the start

You thought you weren't the world to her (but you were)
'least that's why you said you were going
She's stronger than she knows, and it shows
Cause she lives by only flowing

She's looking for her place to stand
Right beside some perfect man, that's her plan
But tonight, everything is alright
Yeah, tonight everything is alright
Track Name: Here I'll Stand
Go, go
Go, go my darlin
Fly away while you can, it's getting very close now
Go, go
Go, go my darlin
Hear my name upon the breeze, say a little prayer for me

Oh little man
Who built his cabin with his hands
Its time to flee
You can't protect this land
Leave me here
Here I'll stand

Sweetest friend
From the shelter of my bough
It's time to fly
You were leaving anyhow
So leave me here
Here I'll stand

My precious leaf
Who dances in the sun
It's time to ride
Catch the wind and then you're gone
Leave me here
Here I'll stand

Goodbye my friends
You wont see me here again
It's time to die
Limb to limb we must remain
I'm the lord of my domain
But I must stay here
Here I'll stand
Track Name: I Like This Game
I like this game, it's a good game
I'll play it to the end
Don't care if it's only you and me
And our imaginary friends
Aint it funny how the love comes
And sets us right down on the wheel
All the promises we made to ourselves on sunny days
Seem to fall beneath our heel

When I was small you know the jungle gym it was the place to be
Only the strange ones wandered off to see what else they could see
Aint it funny how the world turns
And changes us right into them
Inviting fear to come and stay while we send the love away
Going backwards once again

Behind the red door, we can change the time
Behind the big red door, yeah we leave their world behind

I like this game it's a good game
I think that's plainly true
If you can forget your past and future
Well I'll come and play with you
Aint it funny how their smiles change
When they're asked to take that leap
In the middle of the night, sometimes I think they might be right
Then I just go back to sleep

I like this game, it's a good game
I like this game, it's a good game
I like this game
(I think that's plainly true)
I'm going to play it to the end now
(Don't take your past along with you)
I like this game
(Forget your future too)
I like this game
(I'll come and play it with you)
I like this game
Track Name: Take You Down
Come sit by my side
Rest your head for a while
Let the world drift away
I'll serve you tea
Won't put you to sleep
But everything will feel ok
And I'll take you down to the castle gates
The rabbit's running late
Just take my hand and see
How nice it will be

Fall into my arms
My embrace is warm and the night will be long
Close those starry eyes
It's ok to slide into this world with me
And I'll take you down beneath the waves
We're not too gone to save
Take my hand you'll see
How nice it will be

Trust the words you hear
Gather you near, keep the dreams at bay
Soothe your troubled mind
Let your past unwind
I'll take you down to the holy man
Who holds truth in his hand
Take my hand and see
How nice it will be

Just take my hand and see
How nice it will be
