Track Name: Walk of Life
Walk of life we meet again, and all has changed to be the same,
Another war, another crime, to mark the passages of time,
What if all is simply good, and you and I just have to change
The way we think about the world, to see the world anew?

Walk of life we meet again and all the words are coming in,
You say you’ve learned the ways of life; your heart is turning with the knife,
So you go making up a paradise like you’re the only one that knows
What’s good and knows what’s real… Well tell me how you feel…

What if all is life? And what if all is love?
What if all my hopes and memories are just another word
For all the things I think I carry on, but none of them belong?

Walk of life we meet again, and all has changed to be the same,
When all the fears start coming on, does it help to know the earth is round
And in three hundred sixty days you’ll be back here
To make the same mistakes, but with a little bit more grace?

What if all ain’t what it seems?
What if the stars are not so small and if the sky just isn’t blue
And doesn’t end with the horizon?
No distractions and no rules about attractions to this world…
What if I’m at the horizon?
What if I’m not just a silly mess of blood and bones, just trying to get along?
And trading actions for reactions, when it’s all just light’s refractions
Showing me and showing you, in all the ways that can’t be true…

Oh what if all is life? And what if all is love?
What if all my hopes and memories are just another word
For all the things I think I carry on, but none of them belong?
Track Name: Muddy Blue
Everything's broken, nothing’s right
You don't get a wink of sleep at night
And you don't know what you're doing

What touches my hands turns to mud
What touches my lips tastes like blood
And everything is ruined.

I'm so neat and I'm so cute
And God gave me two feet to shoot
So I don't get where I'm going

And you’re so muddy blue,
So muddy blue,
Muddy blue,
Muddy blue…

I'm telling you to get away
You're free to leave and you're free to stay
Now just where do you ink you're going

What scare you more? What you don't know,
Or knowing you'll be where you go
Forever and forever

And you’re so muddy blue,
So muddy blue,
Muddy blue,
Muddy blue…
Track Name: Roll On
You and me… we roll on, onto the street again,
And these glass shields we roll up; we can’t even hear the same.

From here to there it is all gone; from there we will start again.
It’s all wrong and it’s all a game; we leave this world the same…

So I don’t care what we’ve been sold
It isn’t more than some time alone,
And you can’t tell if it hurts at all…
Could it be that the feeling is gone?

And we roll on…

You and me… just hold on, mistaking the pain for rain,
And all these pills we’ve taken, so we’re faking the feeling sane.

They say “you’re dying,” you say, “Go on. Do you think that I’ll make it through?”
We drown our fears, but we drown our hope of ever knowing it’s all a shame…

So I don’t care what we’ve been sold
It isn’t more than some time alone,
And you can’t tell if it hurts at all…
Could it be that the feeling is gone?

And we roll on…
Yeah we just roll on…

Between all these pills we’ve swallowed,
And the glass with the skull and bones,
We’ve drowned ourselves just to kill the sorrow…
Could it be that the feeling is gone?

And we roll on…

Track Name: The Once of A Kiss
Hold me so my head is high, and let this costal wind inspire
Higher hopes in this desire for the once of a kiss
That takes my breath away…

Hold me so my feet are dry, and let this southern sun and fire
Burn a hole through this desire for the once of a kiss
That takes my pain away…

‘Cause in the end, when all my friends are gone,
Oh in the end, when all my friends are gone,
I hope I have found what love is – that I understand what love is,
Not just a kiss, and not just a hand to hold,
But Love itself, and on its own…

Hold me so my head is high, and let this costal wind inspire
Higher hopes in this desire for the once of a kiss
That takes my breath away…
Track Name: The Place you Left it
Okay I’ll wait ‘till I get home
To conclude that I am all alone,
And I ultimately see
That two people thought that they were me,

And I’m always playing catch-up,
And I hope that I don’t mess up,
My one chance to uncover…

Okay I’ll wait ‘till I explode
To admit that everything you told me
Was everything I’d need
For the step that was in front of me,

And you don’t have to look around to find what you have found
It’s always in the place you left it,

And I’m always playing catch-up,
And I hope that I don’t mess up,
My one chance to discover…

So now I’m on my own
And it’s possible what I’ve been shown’s
Not comparable to what I can see…

And I’m always playing catch-up,
And I hope that I don’t mess up,
My one chance to be lovers…

And you don’t have to look around to find what you have found
It’s always in the place you left it…

No you don’t have to look around to find what you have found
It’s always in the place you left it…
Track Name: Monkey Love
If I was a fish who, lived in the sea,
And you were a monkey on the ground,
I’d travel to shore, where water is short,
And you could come in and not drown…

But if you never came to the water,
I’d have to jump out, and learn to breathe the air…
For you… for you…

If I was a goat, who lived on a boat,
And you were a bird in the sky,
I’d paddle and row, when you’re flying low,
In case you decided to land…

But if you never came to the water,
I’d have to grow wings, and learn to fly above…
For you… for you…
For you… for you…

Monkey love…
Track Name: Love in Space
You don’t know me, but I see you
Claiming space underneath my skin,
While the wise and the strong refuse
My stone crumbles and rises with ease to the wind…

You don’t know me, but every day
You’re becoming a trusted friend,
While I sink in the weight of my ways
The stone rises and rides the waves to the sand…

We’re falling stars in stratospheres of worlds beyond our own
Where dawn's a light born to reveal the mysteries yet unknown
And seeing, you see me, seeing you…

You don’t know me, but nights are soon
For the rising of righteous love,
In the darkness and hope of a tomb
The stone lapses, the angels have come from above…

We’re falling stars in stratospheres of worlds beyond our own
Where dawn's a light born to reveal the mysteries yet unknown
And seeing, you see me, seeing you…

And all the while we’re making stories that someday
Will fill the time between the courses of our first date,
And we’ll laugh because it’s over now, and say it all makes sense…

But is this different? I’m seeing you…
Well, is this different? Are you seeing me?
Track Name: Stay Awake
I stay awake, and I think about the day that was
But shortly went away.
Will tomorrow feel the same?

Well you’re breathing deep into the night…
Is it morning where you are?
And are you happy where you are?

One kiss, my love, good night.

I stay awake, and I think about the fact that
We can think of who we are.
Well you know, if we were gone today…

The world goes on, but there’s no one home
To look up at the stars…
And wonder who we are!

One kiss, my love, good night.

I stay awake, and I think about how close we are…
One kiss, my love…

Y’say good night but I stay awake,
And you’re gone but I stay awake,
I can see you fly though I stay awake.
Goodbye… Stay awake….
