Track Name: Turn It Around Some
Looking for answers
Runnin' around now in the park
Finally lonesome
Nothing is final here as you know

All I want is to turn it around some
I don't need to be preaching a sermon
All I want is a definite person
I don't need to be asking for ransoms

Finding an ally
But no one is out here in the dark
Getting butterflies
As soon as they call your name

But all I want is to turn it around some
I don't need to be preaching a sermon
All I want is a definite person
I don't need to be asking for ransoms

All I want is to turn it around some
All I want is to turn it around some
Turn it around some
Turn in a ransom
Track Name: Get Rained On
Every last drop of water this time
Is essential just to clear a skin.
Cascade and springs are just fine
Gotta look out how to wash our sins.

I've been searching for all the right minds,
Everyone else is just playing dead.
Down in the river or by the seaside,
We don't even know where to begin.

So get rained on
Where nothing seems to matter,...
Get rained on
To purify yourself.
Get rained on
Where nothing seems to matter,...
Get rained on
To purify yourself,...
Purify yourself,...

Going down on a magical route
That will be leading us to a swim.
Last call too obvious now:
I believe we will be back again.
Sometimes the freedom desires,
Imagination takes a different spin.
We'll have a myriad of fires
On the bay where this is happening.

So get rained on
Where nothing seems to matter,...
Get rained on
To purify yourself.
Get rained on
Where nothing seems to matter,...
Get rained on
To purify yourself,...
Purify yourself,…
Get rained on,...
Track Name: An Endless Day
Ah, come let me take you by the hand
Ah, we'll sail away to far away lands

Where skies burn bright and flicker blue
Forget the life we always knew
Paddle freely with the pearls
Watch the sail as it unfurls

We can smooth our jaggy course
Rosy wine brings no remorse
Waves lap softly one by one
Climb the shore in midday sun
Climb the shore in midday sun

Ah, with music rising from the seas
Ah, dancing through the balmy breeze

Drown the past in golden pools
The sun will melt each molecule
We'll ignite the summer rays
Don't look back into the grey

Eternal scapes of blazing sands
Buoyant faces holding hands
Don't get away be here to stay
Tomorrow is an endless day
Tomorrow is an endless day
Tomorrow
Track Name: Deny
Amazing tales of wonder do recall a distant time frame.
Cannot believe that just a few years back she twisted madly.
I feel as if the colors fade in ways that don't belong here.
A shadowed curtain blocks the light, the night is what surrounds me.

I have been too long with you.
Do the things you want me to.

Efforts come and go but when they come they go unnoticed.
Reels of tapes of and pictures track a ghost that's mostly angry.
A possible relief of energy is all I'm wanting
But no one in the world would want a mission so demanding.

I have been too long with you,... "What d'you say?"
Do the things you want me to,... "What d'you say?"
Suddenly the scars come through,... "What d'you say?"
Now the visions show me to abandon you,…

So, one day I'll be gone, I'll be gone, I'll be gone, I'll be gone in the morning.
Yeah, I know I'll be gone, I'll be gone, I'll be calling, you go the morning,
In the morning,...
Track Name: Step Into The Night
I wanna dip into your world
To watch your days unfold
Turn the pages of your mind
Unravel tales you've told

I wanna peep into your soul
To contemplate your views
Soaking hopes and dreams
And banish all your blues

I wanna join in your events
Journeys round your globe
Leafing through your telling tomes
Of stories full of hope

I want to glimpse into your past
Pore over reviews 
Maybe then I'll stay
To see the chapters through

Arriving in a time
Where we drink our wine
We should forget our lonely fight
And step into the night

Step into the night

Standing in the crowd
My head up in the clouds
To crack the beating din
A space to hide within

Melting deep inside
I hide it in my eyes
Frustration is the sting
That's choking like a ring

Crushing solitude
Over the years its brewed
Nibbling as a creep
Burning far too deep

The need to break away
From a lonely fray
Run down the dead end street
Fast from drowning heat

Arriving in a time
Where we drink our wine
We should forget our lonely fight
And step into the night

Step into the night
And step into the night
Oh I'm stepping to the night
Step into the night
Track Name: We Call Fear
The moment I left here
You thought I was fine.
Admirable answers,
Despicable mind,...

A little amend took
A minute too much
So now it just seems that
You're losing your touch.

Happy days are removed of appeal,...
How did this anxiety feel so real?
Floating to the end of a frontier
All aboard a vessel we call fear.
Fear!

A major emotion
Will put you to rest.
Await the finale:
don't disappear yet.

Happy days are removed of appeal,...
How did this anxiety feel so real?
Floating to the end of a frontier
All aboard a vessel we call fear.

Now you pause to sit and dream

Of the spaces in between.
Empty time is there to touch,
Ignore and you'll regret much.
Don't just sit in there alone

Watching life turn fast to stone.
Fill the spaces up with friends
;
Should be happy in the end.

The moment I left here
You thought I was fine.
Admirable answers,
Despicable,...
Track Name: Ogres
Soaking in the news today
To finally pretend
That no man's equal in the end.
Envious regarding 'fate'
As something out of hand,…
Much too hard to understand.
Underneath the surface
Many souls in submission
Use their heads instead of guns
On and on, on and on,…

Is this the only thing that's left
When ogres take it all?
Is this something you'll regret
When they'll be on their own?
Is this the only thing that's left
When ogres take it all?

Have you heard the renowned laws
Of supply and demand?
It's a shame when they just leave a strand.
Things don't have to be the way
Some people make believe.
The trunk is nothing without leaves.
Underneath the surface
Many souls in submission
Use their heads instead of guns
On and on, on and on,…

Is this the only thing that's left
When ogres take it all?
Is there something you'll regret
When they'll be on their own?
Is this the only thing that's left
When ogres take it all?
Is there something you'll regret
When they'll be on their own?
Track Name: All But Sleep
The nights are long
Clock slows down
In vague reflections
Hoping, wishing on a star

Now the moon has tales to tell
Sees our dreams in restless hell
Nudges secrets lurking deep
Shadows granting all but sleep
 
Wisps of youth are far behind
Hazy frames of clicks in time
Memories like waning streams
Once did gush, now lost in dreams
 
There was a time when little mattered
Smoked on lawns and rivers shatter
Broken rays of sun baked fast
Friendships that were made to last

Now the moon has tales to tell
Sees our dreams in restless hell
Nudges secrets lurking deep
Shadows granting all but sleep

The wisps of youth are far behind
Hazy frames of clicks in time
Memories like waning streams
Once did gush, now lost in dreams

Hopeless dreamer swims so far
Hoping, wishing on a star
Now the moon has tales to tell
Sees our dreams in restless hell
Nudges secrets lurking deep
Shadows granting all but sleep
Track Name: Reveling
Risin' up into the back of a skull
Keepin' eyes to far away from the sun.
Desireless over an unlimited thread
Of subtle voices singin' among the dead.

On 'n' on channeling in this sound
No one's wrong reveling in this song

Of hope is gettin' into brain waves
A mesh of cells is comin' out of a cage

Anyone qualifies,...
Remove who's purified,...
Knock out a social high,...
Souls will be petrified!

On 'n' on funneling in this sound
All is gone narrowing in a sound
On 'n' on channeling in this sound
No one's wrong reveling in this song

Aw, anyone qualifies,...
Remove who's purified,...
Knock out a social high,...
Souls will be petrified!

Any guy qualifies,...
Remove who's purified,...
Knock out a social high,...
Souls will be petrified!
Track Name: Refrain Chorus Verse
I don't get all of your words
People say you sound absurd
Getting dissed, wound up and frail
Talking up, the noise prevails
What a waste of precious time
Many moons ago I'd smile
Taking spaces in between
Often lonely left unseen

Ooo,…

See the ones that slip away
Hear them chase and make 'em play
Watch the roar, the music score
Take a peak and you'll find more
Use the spaces in between
Don't let slip away unseen
I don't get all of the words
Hearing refrain, chorus, verse

Ooo,...
