Track Name: Oh
Oh, my love is running 'round like a dog,
chasing cats
well, you know
my love

Yes, you know
that I won't let it go
& it breaks my heart
it makes my heart weak.

That's the way it's gotta be
Someone always holding out on me

Why do you need
to go hide away
in the darkest of days, my love?

It goes to show
that you love me no more
& I don't know why
won't know why I do

That's the way it's gotta be
Someone always holding out on me
Track Name: The End Is The Beginning
When everything falls down
Something will keep you from the ground
If everything is lost, remember it can be found
There may not be enough room
So let it go for now

Things will come & things will go
But the memories they leave behind will grow
& if you're not satisfied, then autumn's tide will reel you in
& all these lives that you lived in will nourish again & again & again & again

The end is the beginning
Track Name: Medley
Listen to this medley that we've got for you today
It's full of letters and red sweaters that we brought just to play
It's full of stars and other useful things
Its on its own, there is no coming home

This is what it means to be free
this is what it means to feel free

Hey there rock n rollers put your socks on today
and lift them up to your knees and let the spirit sing away
It's the free bird, free bird of your time
The one love, one love and there's no hate

Peek-a-boo my ghost town, there are no rumors around today,
It's your call,
It's kicking in, the psyche's kicking in
It's emptiness, emptiness once again
Track Name: Abstract Bear
Your conversations, they are bringing me down
I'm just a feather in the wind
The weight on my back is giving in
Goodbye, swollen little whims

& I can't wait to leave this town
& I can't wait to leave this town

The strings run through to the punch bowl
A sweet way to surrender
The trees calmly whispered in the night
Everything's alright

& the dark surounds me
& the dark surounds me

Moonlight right by side
Flesh never really mattered
Oh me, what do I see?
Oh, I see the light.

& the dark surounds me (moonlight right by side)
& the dark surounds me (moonlight right by side)
& the dark surounds me (moonlight right by side)
& the dark surounds me
Track Name: Don't Let Me Slide
If I must go on lady
I want to do my best, baby
Moving on maybe is just my best
Don't you let me slide if I'm weary,
'cause there's no chance without it,
there's no dancin' about it,
I want to boogie now

Woah, that's crazy!
Do you really feel amazing
inside the sounds chasing, chasing nothing?
If I must keep up with you,
I'm gonna need some time myself,
I'm gonna need some time to alone,
just let me be

My oh my! is that realy so?!
Well, go, cat, go
Don't let them steal the show

Don't you let me slide if I'm weary,
'cause there's no chance without it,
there's no dancin' about it,
I want to boogie now
If I must keep up with you,
I'm gonna need some time myself,
I'm gonna need some time to alone,
just let me be

My oh my! is that realy so?!
Well, go, cat, go
Don't let them steal the show
Track Name: Shimmering On
I would say you're gone
But I feel you now
In the witching hour
I feel you proudly
Shimmering on into fun guns

I watched your sadness
Break into madness
Join the façade of making it
What you want
I wait all day and night

Waste away with me
Wait awhile
I want you next to me
I want you happy
Track Name: Day On Its Way
There's a day on its way
Where you'll find that I'm not home
Come to find that I've wandered
Into the great unknown
Don't let it stop you
From moving on
I couldn't wait on you
When fate came to set me free

I don't wanna wait on you
'Cause I've been waiting for so long
I gave you my heart
But I can't give you my soul
No, oh no

This path has lessons too
Sometimes I sit here cold
There's a chip on your shoulder
I hope you knock it off
If you have to wonder where I am
Know that I ain't lost
But I'm bound for glory
Track Name: The Beat
Sitting on top of the world wondering who's down
Who's down there to come and get me?
Transcending human thought
Feeling

Feel free to take it in while you're way up there
Sit with yourself, there's no one down here
Meltdown aftermath
Breathe in

Hold on to the beat
Dancing feet
Here we go!
Hold on to the beat
Ain't it sweet?
Here we go!

Da da lada da da lada da da lada da ...….

Let it be sung
Let it breathe you in

Hold on to the beat
Dancing feet
Here we go!
Hold on to the beat
Ain't it sweet?
Here we go!

Hold on to the beat
Dancing feet
Here we go!
Hold on to the beat
Ain't life sweet?
Here we go!
Track Name: All Is Love
All is love when you die
Please don't leave me tonight
Don't wanna be alone tonight
All is love when you die
The tears just run down my eyes
Don't wanna be alone tonight

These pictures you leave behind
Will not suffice
For any time with you, I would give my life
To the devil, I would give him my soul
As long as I can see you once more

But the problem is I don't believe in heaven or hell
It's where I'm stuck, I need some help
So I continue walking through this place
Told all these people to go fuck themselves
Ignorance is what I yell

Misleaded by confusion of these years
What the fuck am I doing here?
And this is the time for when I look to you
But you're nowhere to be found
And I remember the songs that I sing to you
And it's what kept me going on through
Life can be something with or without you
Always in my heart I hold you
And I sing

All is love when you die
I sing to you goodbye
Saying it's a part of life
Track Name: Hold On, Stay Strong
Wake to a brand new day
Leave
Leave it all behind
Could it be anymore than this?
What you want isn't what you need

Hold on, stay strong
My friend

Love from my point of view
Understand that your life's on the edge
Can we light up another joke?
Keep it real, let's be genuine

Hold on, stay strong
My friend

Hold on, stay strong
Hold on, stay strong
Again
Track Name: Cosmic Girl
With the first sight of your smile
Sucked in from a black hole of your eyes
That girl's got soul
Dream on, you dreamer
And with this song I reel you in for more
Stealin' a kiss the first chance I get
It's hard to control myself when I'm near you

And the strife that life brings
Why should I care about you
when I have to make up my mind to be happy?
And one after another,
Give me a chance to explain
I didn't gain anything I didn't want

What did I do to tell you
"Life goes on"?
What did I do to you?
Life goes on
What did I say to you?
Life goes on
Am I still your muse?
Life goes...
On….
On….
Track Name: Electronic Pilgrims
How the body seems so far away, well I don't know
How'd we ever get here?
Will we ever get there?

My mind paints & draws a blank when I stare into the sunshine
I must be getting faded
Don't you call it sunburnt!

Electronic pilgrimage
Sent to save us
Who knew?

Now's the only chance to go out there to make it
What you've always dreamed of
Go ahead & make it

The light filled another space that we never could get to
It's looking real bright out
There's always a reason

Electronic pilgrimage
Sent to save us
Who knew?

Electronic pilgrimage
Sent to save us
You knew?

Take a look at my opinion
Overstand
It's nothing without you
It's true

Forget my heart is racing
& that it's always needing truth
Look away, dear

Radiate your timeless smile
that makes the world dance round 'n round
Just like that babe

Well there's no tomorrow
If you can't be here now
It's true
Track Name: Wait, Wait, Wait
Take your time 'cause it's all together
Everyone is looking too prickly
Take your mind off everything that you know

Go on back to quiet living
Humble, let go, always giving
Good advice for the tomorrow now

Oh my mind
Oh my head
Everyone's looking through my soul
Wait, wait, wait

This side up, will you handle gently?
Fragile feeling, sort of empty
It's a trip when you carry all the weight

Oh my mind
Oh my head
Everyone's looking through my soul
Wait, wait, wait

Rest assured that it all will settle
Getting there, it's getting better
Take your time, cause she moves real slow
Track Name: On The 1
Walking on the one
Burning sun
There's an art to living
Simple, as it is, it will be, what we wish to see
Light house on the coast, generous gifts of the North Pacific
All I ever knew was real blue till I struck old gold

That's just how it goes when you think that you know
Your walls will fall into place, then you'll see

Even before I had eyes, I could see

Soak up all the vibes, squeeze them out onto lonesome people
Time & time again will run out till you reach forever.

That's just how it goes when you think that you know
Your walls will fall into place then you'll see

Even before I had eyes, I could see
Everything swimming inside
Even before I had ears, I could hear
Everything coming my way
Track Name: Multiverse
Late at night
Lay me down
With your beautiful sounds
When my soul meets the drafts of
Multi-universe travel
Riding on the waves
Invisible ways I do believe
It doesn't make sense
So here we go, here we go.
