Track Name: Hand in the Jar
It was a morning in June when I heard that tune
Falling up to the beat of your heart
Like a white crane sails from a startled trail
Our eyes met and then landed so well

Before you could speak, before you could weep
I held your hand in mine
Like a shell on a beach, waiting for you reach
Falling up to the mountain to climb

You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's
no need for doubt in this mind.
You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's
no need for doubt in this mind

And our eyes aligned like the sun through the pines
In silent space, in a cup full of time
In these orderly ways in this disorderly life
I let go of my hand in the jar

Before the great moon in the middle of June
Falling up to the pull of the tide
And though I've seen it before, nothing I've ever been told
Can touch this feeling inside

You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's
no need for doubt in this mind.
You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's
no need for doubt in this mind

And our eyes aligned like the sun through the pines
In silent space, in a cup full of time
In these orderly ways in this disorderly life
I let go of my hand in the jar
Track Name: Red Dust
Take my name out of your paper Jane
I've seen something, that forever changed the game
Forgive me love for all the blame I sent to thee
All the fingers I pointed, really pointed back at me

All this fighting, this unsettling stir
I see it now, I surrender

Let the dust settle, let go of the pedal, there's too much here
Let these towers turn to rivers, let these instincts steer
Let the dust settle , let the stormy weather ride out, disappear
And when the sunlight shines, let it all come clear

Take my name out of your paper Jane
I've seen something, that forever changed the game
Forgive me friend for all i did to thee
I was pompous then and you were my enemy

Let the dust settle, let go of the pedal, there's too much here
Let these towers turn to rivers, let these instincts steer
Let the dust settle , let the stormy weather ride out, disappear
And when the sunlight shines, let it all come clear

I will mend my ways, I will mend my ways
I see the red dust swirling, I see the red dust swirling
I see the red dust swirling on my knees
Track Name: The Civil War Song
We came through Raleigh
Now off to Gettysburg

I heard shots in the valley
So I wrote you down these words

I travel in the fourth regiment
My brothers by my side
Our captain banned our liquor
Now I'm trying to get by

Mrs. Elizabeth I can still see your dark brown eyes
Elizabeth this may be the last time I ride

Yeah I'm nervous I can't lie
And if you don't hear from me tell my mother it's alright
I'm at the end of the fight
And if you don't hear I'll meet you in heaven when I die

My brother he's been sick
He's coughing through the night
He's got nine months of service
Till he's home to see his wife

Mrs. Elizabeth I can still see your dark brown eyes
Elizabeth this may be the last time I ride

Yeah I'm nervous I can't lie
And if you don't hear from me tell my mother it's alright
I'm at the end of the fight
And if you don't hear I'll meet you in heaven when I die
Track Name: The Breeze
I wake up in the morning, in this great blue state
Golden fingers caress my skin
Slips through the window on a silky breeze
A dreamers land to plant some seeds

She's my believer, healing all my doubts
A lighted mirror, reflecting out
Every true potential, bed rock belief
An elaborate plot, to set this bird free

From every element of past, every color that's attached
She paints pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea
All the ancient memories, just as fleeting as the breeze
She paint pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea

We lay in the sunset, white cotton June
Her body sings and I join the tune
All the sirens calling, the crows leave their trees
But a peace pervades us and the dreamers dream

From every element of past, every color that's attached
She paints pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea
All the ancient memories, just as fleeting as the breeze
She paint pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea
Track Name: Crooked Accounts
In dark shadows, in black dusty rooms
I lay in my bed with blue sky dreams
In truth I doubt, in truth I take the blame
I see little in my cup, but it's flowing over the brim

Come on now this can't be real, with all this heartache I feel
Come on now, haven't you shown me enough

I heard of a man with bottomless wealth
Like a trusted old well that came up from the ground
Until the day he questioned, inspected the source
He went to the bottom to find it all was gone

Come on now this can't be real, with all this heartache I feel
Come on now, haven't you shown me enough

I guess I'll get out of my way, get out of my way
There's a mad man inside of my head with crooked accounts and alot to say.
Track Name: Song of the Seasons
Ajam nirvikalpam nirakaramekam,
Nirananda mananda madvaitha poornam,
Param nirgunam nirvisesham nireeham,
Param brahma roopam Ganesam Bhajama.

Years and years and years and years and years
Seconds and then smiles and then tears
Forward into birth and into life
Forward into death and into light

Water flow from high to low
Fire burn from hot too cold
A symphony running wild, in harmony

Tide in tide out storm and quiet peace
Earth worms to the birds to lions teeth
Bear's and Owls praise the pregnant moon
Snakes and flowers wait for sun at noon

Water flow from high to low
Fire burn from hot too cold
A symphony running wild, in harmony
Track Name: Little White
I came to tell you tonight
That I lied
I shut down I let your flowers die
I let em die

The colors you showed me were sparkling white
They were white
But me I saw the cobwebs the fault in your eyes
Yet it was mine

Now I agree your sympathy should be shallow as my words
Now I can see how your red blood beats more than I will know

I heard your silence but felt you near
I fought it from every logical way but I am here

Now I agree your sympathy should be shallow as my words
Now I can see how your red blood beats more than I will know

Oh little white I come to you
I saw your flame jump into my blue blood veins
And I thought of you for all these years

Oh little white I confess to you
I cannot rest let me get this off my chest
I love you

Oh little white I come to you
I saw your flame jump into my blue blood veins
And I thought of you for all these years

Oh little white I confess to you
I cannot rest let me get this off my chest
I love you

Forgive me I hope you understand
Forgive me I hope you understand
Track Name: The World Inside
Why would you look outside yourself when you have
All of the world inside

Yeah your heart is a sun and it shines as it opens

Yeah your bones are the earth and they sing with mountains

Why would you look outside yourself when you have
All of the world inside

Yeah your mind is a space that creates your horizons

Why would you look outside yourself when you have
All of the world inside

You know you can feel it
When you look inside
You know you can feel it
It's no surprise

Why would you look outside yourself when you have
All of the world inside

Why would you look outside yourself when you have
All of the world inside
Track Name: Clear Skies
He got down on one knee eleven twelve eleven
And her tears welled up and her heart jumped to heaven
It was supposed to rain but there's clear skies today

She was a rare gem Romanian decent
He was good man gave her every compliment she deserved
Yeah he treated her like a queen

He said come with me my darling beauty
Let's spend our lives together
And I'll love you always through every doorway
Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will

Well it couldn't have been more perfect than this
There emotions whirled in bliss
Like a wave built from the center of a sea

In the evening they came home in shock
They had spoken what they always thought
It was a boundless love from the start

She said come with me my darling love to be
Let's spend our lives together
And I'll love you always through every doorway
Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will

When you're gone I will keep the fires warm
When you're gone

I'll love you always through every doorway
Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will

Yes I'll love you always through every doorway
Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will

He got down on one knee eleven twelve eleven
And her tears welled up and her heart jumped to heaven
It was supposed to rain but there's clear skies today
Track Name: No Words to Describe
I had a dream that you were mine
You lit the flame right over the line
On my darkest day

Like a balloon, under the sea
I rose up from the pressure beneath
So gloriously lost all of me, With it all coming off of me

I had a dream that you were mine, we made love under a satin blue light, from a window of moon
Just one touch, I felt you ignite
The rivers crossed and black turned to white, so gloriously lost all of me with all coming off of me

And when I woke up, when I woke up
you were just a trace in my blood
Salt from a crackling sea, charged electricity
And when I woke up, when I woke up
you were just a trace in my blood
Salt from a crackling sea, charged electricity

I had a dream that you were mine
You lit the flame right over the line
On my darkest day

Like a balloon, under the sea
I rose up from the pressure beneath
So gloriously lost all of me, With it all coming off of me
