Track Name: Primal
eyes sparkle you see the good
doing things we never would
in the days when nothing rhymed
then we went beyond our minds
beyond our minds beyond our minds
all the layers of masquerade
invite me to your parade
drinking nectar on satin sheets
beyond our minds our spirits meet
beyond our minds our spirits meet
primal get primitive
shadows moving down the hall
faces fade behind the wall
now we see that we were blind
to the spirit of the time
spirit of the time beyond our minds
our spirits meet beyond our minds
primal get primitive
Track Name: Perfect Day
It’s just a perfect day
Just a blue sky day
Just like any other day
Were things always this way?
Ahhh and I was walking on down the street
To the riots at my feet
I was hearing, I am seeing
Blasts and fearing
I could, I could
Feel the heat
Did I leave here today?
Were these burned out buildings here yesterday?
What do broken lives say?
Can they speak from beyond the grave?
Ahhhh and the people running
Smoke is rising
The crowds are building
They are pushing
It’s getting harder
And harder
And harder
To breathe
[Spoken word]
Ohhhhh and this is not a game
This is not a game
At least not to me!
Track Name: Voices
voices inside my head try to make me feel bad
people live in my brain telling me I’m the one to blame
what about them
you and me will always be free
always free you and me
yes I’d like a normal life whatever that is it’s been too long
since I’ve had a quiet mind that’s ok I feel fine
well alright
you and me will always be free
always free you and me
sometimes I feel I’m breaking through
I’m breaking through to you I’m breaking through
sometimes I see through my mind’s eye
I see you smiling I hear you calling
I hear you calling I hear you calling
you and me will always be free
Track Name: Through the Air
take a little trip yeah go for a ride
through the neighborhoods on the west side
got to hear that band with the strange groove
playing dive bars with something to prove
connect the dots between what we see and how we imagine life could be
oh yeah . . . let music bring you where
love is flowing through the air
echoes in the room some people dance
even that hipster gives it a chance
nothing comes easy and that’s alright
the neon glowing lights up the night
sexy fun let’s do it some more
spend more time down on the floor
oh yeah . . . let music bring you where
love is flowing through the air
Track Name: Less A Garden
Don't you know, little boy, life is coming through that door
Your parents never told you honey, it's less a garden and more a war
And you were just looking for the good times
Spent your days looking for the good times
Now you know, and it's not funny, how people can destroy each other
The child's games, they play all day, will hurt so much you'll cry for mother
Oh you wanted to be happy
Oh you wanted to be happy
Oh you needed you needed to be happy
Oh Oh Oh Oh
Don't you know, little boy, life is coming through that door
Your parents didn't tell ya honey, it's less a garden. and more. a war
Track Name: In Darkness
we wake up in darkness inside a tender womb
we end up dark ashes scattered or in the tomb
i learned to be in darkness inside a tiny space
do not abandon me you are my saving grace
darkness can be soothing peaceful to stop moving
darkness misunderstood heal me make me
good good in darkness
focus on simply breathing don’t worry about needing
more than enough is more than i ever will need
i wake up in darkness inside gentle bed
you are my saving grace keep me until i’m dead
Track Name: Building Submarine
no reason to be here except the future
roll with the punches everything’s changing
all the confusion creates an illusion
no one understands what’s going on what’s happening
no one has a clue how it is or what to do
she wanted love he forgot her name
she drove away left him in the rain
he went to the movies all alone
there he stayed made it his home
in the movie house all alone
until they saw him sleeping there
they threw him now out he’s got nowhere
running in the rat race trying to make a deal
need to come in first place just to get a meal
drive into a pothole and you break a wheel
can’t go where you need to be we know how you feel
he got a job building submarine
sandwiches at the village green
she’s still alone but has an awesome phone
no one understands what’s going on what’s happening
no one has a clue how it is or what to do
