1. "Ebb and flow" letra

In the basement waiting for a statement
but station?s frequency is vacant
why don?t we go outside
in the break room waiting for a big boom
smoke haze rising in a big plume
everyone?s dissatisfied

The pools have dried the trial?s been tried
but the leak?s still spilling they don?t know what to do
the flow won?t stop pressure still won?t drop
tanks are overfilling

Forward we crawl backwards we fall through the ebb and the flow
living within a dream wading through the stream beyond the ebb and flow

Up late to earn the proceeds
all stressed out, working until your eyes bleed
overtime to buy things we don?t need

Always on the go and you?re thirty thirty
gotta make the ends and get dirty dirty
will it ever stop will it ever end
is it worthy

Reality of this is you go loco loco
and too much of this way and you?ll go postal postal
happens all the time just get in line
and go comatose

The moms and pops have all closed up shop
and who can blame them? I don?t know anyone
the kids just hide scared to go outside
and just who can blame them?

At times it seems unreal
we can see but we can?t feel
and no one?s at the wheel
born here all alone
growing old with hearts of stone
the lights are on but no one?s home
 
2. "Five of everything" letra

No matter what I try there?s no room in my mind
No way to go round that, that?s just the way it is must I remind
I don?t pick up the phone but you still try to call
There?s nothing left to say you?ve already gotta know we?ve said it all

The story never ends, in search of something
But once we arrive it all starts again
Reaching for higher ground, the river?s rising
It keeps on flowing forever no matter what we have found

Sometimes it seems insane
To just keep pressing on
As if it will put out the flame
But still the thirst remains
Drink another drink
And somehow I still feel the same

Step off, head out, take flight, and just run
Got five of everything but I just need one
My brain telling me what I want, I need
Got five of everything but I still proceed

Help me fill up this hole
It?s gaping and out of control
It feels like I?m losing touch and it?s taking its toll
When this wall isn?t moving
State of things not improving
And no satisfaction in the distraction of the day

Sometimes it seems insane
To just keep pressing on
As if it will put out the flame
But still the thirst remains
Drink another drink
And somehow I still feel the same

Step off, head out, take flight, and just run
Got five of everything but I just need one
My brain telling me what I want, I need
Got five of everything but I still proceed

Living in this culture can be a drag
It?s just a commercial what we have
A one track mind we grab, grab, grab
We?re past being crazy, call us mad
Gone is the golden egg and the goose
And the bullshit of all hell breaking loose
We gotta hit the boost
Sip on the thick juice
Disregard the bad cards
And wake the truth

Step off, head out, take flight, and just run
Got five of everything but I just need one
My brain telling me what I want, I need
Got five of everything but I still proceed

The story never ends, in search of something
But once we arrive it all starts again
Reaching for higher ground, the river?s rising
It keeps on flowing forever
 
3. "Showdown" letra

So ya been kicked in the shin
took one on the chin
sometimes you lose before you win
just smile in the meanwhile
at the bottom of the pile
third down and a mile
buckle up and try again

Keep pushin?, keep pushin?
and never never stop

I feel that something?s gonna go down
don?t say I didn?t warn ya
looks like we?re headed for a showdown
gonna get it on yeah

Champions soon will be named
kings of the domain
all the pain and all the gain
worth more than fortune and fame now
my oh my the stakes are high
win or say goodbye
now it all comes to this game

Chorus

Play that game like a neighborhood side street
anywhere you want it I don?t care where we meet
school yard, front yard, back yard, town park
I don?t think that you bite, all I hear is you bark
to the body one shot
wrecking ball can?t be stopped
in the lane, yeah we got this game
play through pain that?s why we came

When it?s all laid on the line
I can?t settle for less than
everything that should be mine
 
4. "Revelation of the year" letra

We are not so different, you and I
no matter what we think
we?re kicking against the traces, bludgeoning
trying to make it sink

We?re stepping into the unknown
peeling layers of the onion right down
cuz that is part of my style to
risk to be left with nothing
in pursuit of chasing something
out of hand
I know, I know don?t tell me

I?ve been on this earth
I know the moon like a friend
I hear a tune or someone sing
feel the beauty in them
these words woman
we have some children
I got memories with you
I wonder how it ends
it?s beautiful yes
what we have chosen
with love in our hands
we have made this garden
& I think I can ride
although I?m not a horseman
but I have a patient mind
& it?s open

We don?t want to walk into the gray
solo rolling with no map in hand
so we reach out for someone to grasp
keep from sinking into the sand

Pick it up now brother help another pick it up
don?t get stuck in the destruction looming near
pick it up now brother help another pick it up
this is the revelation of the year

Picking up all the pieces here and there
to see if one might fit
spinning them around and sideways and up and down
it kinda stings a bit

Digging through all the ditches just unwinding all the stitches into thread
then hang it out to dry so
what was I expecting just collecting balls of lint up in my head?
I know I know don?t yell at me

I know you?re tired of the same routine
you have that look on your face
I think I know what it means
out of sorts in a vast machine
a worker bee up in the scene
never will be the queen
& yes sometimes you have to sting
expose the schemes to unlock the dreams
ignite quicker than the gasoline
to mask everything again in a smokescreen

We don?t want to walk into the gray
solo rolling with no map in hand
so we reach out for someone to grasp
keep from sinking into the sand
 
5. "Sand dollars" letra

I?ve been humming a high note
maybe something that I wrote
out sailing in my boat
I?m not really sure

I?m still singing the same tune
I?ve been kicking around since June
all morning and afternoon
now it?s all a blur

I?ve been listening to sea shells
to hear the stories that they tell
of high times and tide swells
that have yet to occur

Backsliding down the drain
partially taking all the blame

Chasing coins to fill the purse
is it really better or for worse
is it a blessing or a curse
to pass the buck

Is it a bounty or a bust
is it precious metal or just rust
well it seems it?s up to us
so wish us luck

I kept making a U-turn
ended up with a sunburn
but the lesson that I learned
was worth the skin that peeled

I climbed so many mountains
it?s not even worth counting
all the drinks in the fountain
before it was revealed

From the copper to the kettle
the stamen to the petal
we watch the value of sand dollars crumble
 
6. "Boom shanka" letra

Transmission, beaming out from the sun
collision, no use in running from
my senses picking up the pulse
the silence said a mouthful
intuition, didn?t know what I was waiting for

Can?t go very far, gonna notice where you are
got a love for you so large, fixed to you like a star
can?t go very far, gonna notice where you are
got a love for you so large, fixed to you like a star

Every time I think I got it figured
something bigger always jumps in the frame
something gets in the way

Now I?m ready to turn the page on yesterdays and forgive them
now I?m willing to disengage to seize the day and move on

Wanna swing you higher
wanna swing you higher

Vibration, coming up from the ground
translation, something just more than sound
when I move on to the next world
I?ll wait for you over there
rotation, my head the other way around

Chorus

If I?m not careful I may
slip away before I get
one last look at your face
you now I?ll see you again
somewhere in another time and space
 
7. "Make it rough" letra

Never thought it would come easy
slow as turning soil
that?s the only way to reach me that much I am sure of
bring it to a boil

Just take your time, thoroughly
let the seasons be the air you
breathe in and out
patiently
wait for spring?s returning

Try not to think too far ahead
the pendulum swings soon enough
we could stay on this side instead
but we wanna make it rough

There were times I thought I?d get there
I know you thought so too
the days have bled together
Now anyway will do
if you?re looking I might have it
but you have to look to see
the image you have of me
is what I?d like to be

I was so good at pretending
and denying when things bothered me
so shut the front door I?ll
kick in the back
metaphorically, I?m hoping

Try not to think too far ahead
the pendulum swings soon enough
we could stay on this side instead
but we wanna make it rough

Make it rough ?til they put you in the handcuff
seeking out minds that are not yet corrupt
woi-oh woi-oh and away you go
I?m a go on til the god damn juice gone
far enough into the journey to feel the satisfaction yes
action speaking louder than bombs
we just go on and on, on and on, on and on and on

Try not to think too far ahead
the pendulum swings soon enough
we could stay on this side instead
but we wanna make it rough
 
8. "The great divide" letra

It?s like I stepped into a dream
I think you know what I mean
a reality break to a place unseen
things come alive stupefied mind quarantined
from sleeping then awaken to somewhere in between
ay, I?m on a cloud parfait
I jump into the valley of the far from mundane
my knees buckle a chuckle chuckle
mutha fucka I get back up
like there never was a scuffle

Strange like a tale from Brothers Grimm
they?re watching you we can?t look at them
living life out here like on a limb
one or the other sink or swim
maximum velocity
yet speeding up so rapidly
there?s no where else I?d rather be, for me

They keep you high, won?t let you come down
distract the facts ma?am, that?s the plan now
where you work, where you lurk, what you search
climb too much get off of that perch
virtual reality your nightmare
on the grid, kid, getting nowhere
get ahead, leave behind
lose your mind find in time
a nowhere rhyme

Chemicals up in the atmosphere
another meteor is falling near
buried in the headlines disappear
I?m not the type to live in fear
you dream but I know you?re awake
explaining a nightmare you couldn?t shake
maybe the kool-aid that you drank today

We?re breaking away from the past
reaching a new plane at last
regardless of what cards get played
no one can keep you afraid

Unless you wanna be
you make that choice indubitably
they wanna play my emotions
but I?m like the ocean
too calm to get upset by somebody?s notion

Future makers
organ takers
a non-human intelligence is guiding
worlds colliding
far away star system
I string DNA where I need ?em

What we gonna get with a zero field
gotta have the one to make it real
I tell ya that more will be revealed
the mystery don?t bother me
everyday masquerade
there?s always too many plans we laid
keep going faster down the grade we made

We?re breaking away from the past
reaching a new plane at last
regardless of what cards get played
no one can keep you afraid

We?re always beginning
as sure as we?re spinning
for it?s never ending from here
after all this time
I am sorry I?m not sorry
hate me later
something greater
than the petty here and now

Venture on
the sketch is not completely drawn
travel wide
it?s not hiding inside
venture on
the sketch is not completely drawn
travel wide
its out beyond the great divide
 
9. "Friday afternoon" letra

Friday afternoon and all the worries just float into the air
we?re going to our secret spot and no one else knows how to get there
the words just poured out of you like a melody
I just could not believe the things you?re telling me

Come closer, come closer

Nothing could be half so compelling
as you and me, our senses telling us where to go
you give me quite a show
we?re stretched out horizontal throttle down
upon the ground and always taking it slow
here we go

I taste the salt on your skin and then it?s really beginning
I got the message you?re sending
Go again and again ?til we?re spent
I hear somebody coming

Maybe a year went by
Could be two lifetimes
But I know it?s building up again
 
10. "Simple true" letra

Lying down on the pavement, so happy
seeming to be in balance, but how could that be
really I must be jealous, don?t tell me
I just gotta leave the broken pieces or it?ll be the death of me

Six long years and seven heartbreaks
broken strings and countless outtakes, why?
never thought that I would follow through
got a working title somewhere
and I know one day I?ll get there, I?m
grasping here

I?m looking out for a simple kind of true
don?t know what I am waiting for
I?m holding out for a simple kind of true
at least some kind of a metaphor

It?s simple, simple and it?s true
we got much to do
no excuses they?re just useless
we?ve got much to do

I?d say you hung the moon if they ask me
you help me so the plot won?t get past me
sometimes the obvious cannot be seen
at least not by me

Chorus

Remember all of the times
when we couldn?t make up our minds
hours and years disappear
 
11. "First dimension" letra

Blow you right out of the room
ringing ears like sonic boom
miles wide you hear me calling, calling

Across the ocean cross the sea
navigating disparity
miles wide you hear me calling calling

Now it?s time that we mention
a further extension
reality is our intention

It?s like meditation
beyond medication
and striving for the transformation

Quantum leaping through science
to cosmic compliance
by ending our fossil reliance

Now the miscalculations
are causing mutations
here?s your correction, boom!

It?s something beyond comprehension
we come from another dimension
it is our one true intention
to change your fate yes I?m telling you

Beings that once were cetacean
resonating through earth?s vibration
want you to solve the equation
before it?s too late c?mon!

Power without control
dig yourself into a hole
rocketing on the horizon rising

Philosophy expressed to me
moments spending silently
listening to the horizon rising

The nuclei dividing before my eyes
I wonder why how can this be at all
imagine a time
before words made a rhyme
before clocks to wind
before they had the chance to stall

Across the ocean across the sea
navigating disparity
 
12. "Made in the shade" letra

Sitting by the bedroom window
looking at a slideshow on a Sunday but it?s Monday
well how would I know I?d be looking out the same old window
years later on a Monday thinking something would come from doing the same thing

Bout time to give up on the same old stuff I?m stuck on
just say that it went wrong and move it along
sayonara till tomorrow it?s just how it goes sometimes.

You gotta keep on climbing the hill
cuz if you think you?ll make it you will
go swimming quick like a fish and every wish will be fulfilled
strike up and start the parade
cutting down the weeds keep slinging the blade
when they fire that warning shot
you?ll have a spot made in the shade

Standing at a side street station
feeling like a one way on the down low
flying solo till further delay
easy blame it on procrastination
always hoping somehow that the nonsense this time will make sense
stuck in circles
faces in the sunshine they never look at mine
people just walk by and keep their eyes low
sayonara till tomorrow
that?s how it goes sometimes
 
13. "Existential hero" letra

Whole world! From the high country to the bottom of the sea
I caught a place that I needed to be
it comes and it goes, the momentary glory
then, quick as they came they?re down the drain
another one coming from a shallow place will not remain
remember when what was possible would never end
now we abide by limits I cannot defend
it fits good and yet the best we reject
you get what you get I guess don?t get upset

Where is that garden of eden
under stars and the trees and
and so far, so far from the heathens
planets follow patterns, we fall into seasons
flowing like a river we broaden and deepen

Hold on, before we are gone
got lots to do but time with you
keeps on sliding
and I keep on blowing a fuse, there you go
unseen, your face in the screen
I feel your attention dividing
but this is worth more than the news

Prepare to bare all
I paint the cave walls
I am the hobbit
with the ring in the forrest
I am the richest I am the poorest
a particle I vibe I just keep dancin?
I move from this world into a mansion
of light and love as below and above
I chart the planets and the whales migration
I?m home everywhere I run the station
the last light of a dying star
in every game I am that wild card
I participate I?m paleolithic
and geology and astrophysics
a true cowboy existential hero
I compiled that deck and named it tarot
I?m in play I want the ball
I?m buddha with amnesia then sudden recall

Somehow I fell into it all again, it all again
somehow I fell into it all again, it all makes sense
somehow I fell into it all again, it all make sense
somehow it was here all along
 
14. "The call" letra

We could say it?s just how it is
and how it always will be
and believe things will never change
as far as we can see
it?s a disaster and it doesn?t matter
well I disagree
a ray of hope remains if we take the reins we?ll arrive eventually

Keep all the lights on in the streets of Babylon
then we?ll just dig for some more
pull back the curtain cuz one things for certain
action speaks louder than war

Look around there?s no time left to stall
(you?ve got to) stand up while you can don?t miss the call

Hold on here we go
where we stop nobody knows
breath and count to five
live while you?re still alive
right before your eyes
your best laid plan up and dies
cleverly disguised
the bounty materialized

Now we?re moving fast
we?re picking up on speed
we got the energy
creating fast
as we tunnel deep
& no time to think
here we just react
to the things
we need
hold on to your world

Look around there?s no time left to stall
(you?ve got to) stand up while you can don?t miss the call

To live just in your mind
is some kind of crime
stuck in your station
in isolation
never too late for beginning
to set your captive free

Tonight the moment has arrived
to live while we?re still alive

(wake up and) look around there?s no time left to stall
(you?ve got to) stand up while you can don?t miss the call
(it?s time to) end the debate don?t hesitate this time
(c?mon on and) take a stance don?t miss your chance
to stand up right now!
 
15. "Tranquility" letra

Journey in peace now
You don?t have to be afraid
Though mistakes, they have been made
Journey in peace now

Journey in peace now
You don?t have to be afraid
Though mistakes, they will be made
Journey in peace now my friend.

No you can?t go around it
You have to walk right through it
My father told me that so long ago
Every time that you ignore it
It gets a little more
You just have to walk toward
The fear to go

Don?t be afraid, it?s all part of the plan for us
Don?t be afraid, it?s all part of the plan for us
All that you hold dear
Is on the other side of that fear
