Track Name: Moon Howls
Wind blows; children cry
The moon howls and so do I
Faces smile and the grass grows
The whole world turns and no one knows

Deeper than the deepest sea,
and brighter than its bluest hue you seem to me
Something stirs within my soul today

Waves crash; ships set sail
The clouds sit still, thin and pale
Dreams fly by as you sigh
And kits outline that turquoise sky

Deeper than the deepest sea,
and brighter than its bluest hue you seem to me
Something stirs within my soul today for me.
Track Name: Trouble
People looking for your time
Voices singing someone else's song tonight
Trouble climbing up the stairs
Mind your manners kid;
Don't they tell you-
Tell you that it's impolite to stare?
Though I guess no one really cares 'cause

They have steel
They have stone
They've got flesh and blood and bone
And they know that it's coming to an end

Reason looking through her eyes
Voices sing the songs of severance tonight
Trouble climbing up the stairs
Mind your manners kid;
Don't they tell you -
Tell you that it's impolite to stare?
Though I guess no one really cares 'cause

They have steel
They have stone
They've got flesh and blood and bone
And they know that it's coming to an end

Will you reap all you've sown
Cast into the great unknown
Will you wander
Will you wish you had a bed?
Track Name: The Score
So confess, I know it's true
All that time you said you'd lose
With me, believing every word you heard

I confess, I knew it too.
All that sorrow left inside your mind
And not a single thing to do

So if you find yourself
Finding time to spend with me
I do believe you should

Come away with me into the mountains
Come away into the blue
Lay me down in fields of grass
Feel my pulse and just relax
Lay me down right next to you

Now I guess I'll sing the blues
Half a bed that's left to use
And never knowing whose is whose to lose

So if you find yourself
Finding time to spend with me
I do believe you should

Come away with me into the mountains
Come away into the blue
Lay me down in fields of grass
Feel my pulse and just relax
Lay me down right next to you

Come away with me into the mountains
Come away into the blue
Lay me down in fields of grass
Feel my pulse and just relax
Lay me down right next to you

Well I've been there once before
And I can tell you that the score
Doesn't come out even
But it comes out right.
Track Name: Battlefield
Reporting for duty sir
It's been too long since I've seen the war
And I'm ready again

Reporting for duty sir it's been too long since I've seen the war
And I'm already gone

Come to me in fits of sleep
Fever dreams keep lifting me away,
Away, away
To the battlefield again
All again

I'm putting on boots and furs
It's much too cold to plot the course alone
And I'm freezing in my bones

I'm trying to beat these birds around the bush
Just until the dawn and it's
Sunrise too soon, too soon

Come to me in fits of sleep
Androids dream of electric sheep and rage
Away, away
On the battlefield again, again, again, all again

So many days
Spent in a haze
So many nights
Never a fight
Biding your time
Plotting your crimes
For the battlefield again
All again

Reporting for duty sir
It's been too long since I've seen the war
And I'm sleeping tight at night

Reporting for duty sir
It's been too long since I've seen the war
And I'm already gone
Track Name: On the Street Tonight
City streets all filled with smoke and sweat and dust
Empty eyes locked into place and rusted shut
If everyone can see them, why does not a soul speak up?
Maybe it's because...

All this time we've been thinking
Stuck inside of our own heads
All this time we've been drinking
Raising glasses to the dead

Don't say you know the way
To something better than today
Don't wish away your life
You've only got this one shot to make it right
Don't say you know the way
To something better than today

City streets all filled with neon lights and lust
Hungry mouths locked into place and rusted shut
If everyone can see them, why does not a soul speak up?
Maybe it's because...

All this time we've been thinking
Stuck inside the pages of a book
All this time we've been drinking
I think it's time you take a look

Don't say you know the way
To something better than today
Don't wish away your life
You've only got this one shot to make it right
Don't say you know the way
To something better than today

Is anybody hearing the sounds
On the street tonight?'
Is anybody listening in uptown?
Is anybody hearing the shouts
On the street tonight?
Is anybody listening in?
I think we're going down

Don't say you know the way
To something better than today
Don't wish away your life
You've only got this one shot to make it right
Don't say you know the way
To something better than today
Track Name: If
If you could tell me which way to go
Then I would follow you to the end of the road
If you could point me in the general direction
Then I would listen close to the end of our connection

But I won't, 'cause I don't think you can
And I won't. I won't be part of that plan

If you would play me just another tune or two
Then I would sit right here and I'd hear you through
If you would love me for a moment more tonight
Then I'd forget myself and I'd feel alright

But I won't, 'cause I don't think you will
And I won't, I won't swallow your pill, no

If you could tell me now which way to go
Then I would follow you to the end of the road
If you could point me in the general direction
Then I would listen close to the end of our connection

But I won't, 'cause I don't think you can
And I won't. I won't be part of that plan
No I won't, 'cause I don't think you will
And I won't, I won't swallow your pill
Track Name: For Today
Hair like fire and a smile that kills
This girl's got a voice like glass
That's sure to give you chills

With words to soothe your broken mind
Or is it hers she's minding all the time?

Now I've gone and spilled it all
Exactly why I can't recall
And she says

That's okay,
Just love me for today
And I'll love you back
But not in the same way

Not afraid to love not afraid to cry
She says one day, she also wants to die
In touch with what's inside her head
Still angry with her father for the things he never said

Now she's gone and spilled it all
Exactly why I can't recall
And she says

That's okay,
Just love me for today
And I'll love you back
But not in the same way

She says she gives him space to roam
The only home he's ever claimed to know
Except the streets and city lights
But even they get much too bright sometimes at night

Now we're open and exposed
Stripped ourselves down to the marrow of our bones
And we found that what's inside
And this comes as no surprise
Was much easier to take than to put it back

She still says
That's okay,
Just love me for today
And I'll love you back
But not in the same way
Track Name: Sit Think and Stare
Smell the flowers
Kiss your girl
Because the world
Has never felt so real

Walk the path
Smile at last
Let time move your mind

Run your fingers
Through my hair
Ask a question
Stay a while
Sit think and stare

When we have arrived at the other side
Of time
Will you be mine?

Don't yell; it's not your style
Softer words
Remember
Being a child

When we have arrived at the other side
Of time
Will you be mine?
Track Name: Green and Blue
See you in my wildest dreams
They come and go like movie screens

Afternoon - we wake up to a song
Somehow missed the morning birds at dawn
Flying low so as not to make a sound
Throw me down and now I hit the ground

Coming to, I'm without you
The afternoon's a blur
Making coffee, now I'm off to work
No time to check my bed for her

Walking home I might have seen your face
That can't be right it's much too out of place
All the while I couldn't make a sound
Throw it down and now I hit the ground

See you in my wildest dreams
You come to me so real it seems
Lie with me in fields of green and blue
Limitless, there's nothing we can't do
Fabricate a city overnight
Just for us to roam, no end in sight
