Track Name: Old America
It was in Old America
When I was seventeen
I built a boat with my father
He told me tales of the restless sea
His words were fire set to adventure
Their direction was wild and free
My heart had sails and my bones were dreams
Tied to land but tempted by the breeze

Now time moves all
It gives no favors
The distant shores make my blood swell
Abandon home for foreign harbors
and dive head first in the wishing well

My boat is drifting in open waters
My father’s words are revolving
The wind gets caught up in my sails
As the horizon is beckoning

I saw the dream in my father’s eyes
I set a course in a race with time
I sail on to keep those words alive
I saw the dream in my father’s eyes

It was in Old America
Track Name: Moonlight
Moonlight
Over my shoulder
Pushing me closer
To where you sway
Words fall
They slip and they stumble
They trip and they tumble
Sent in your way

Your smile lingers, and I keep stealing
Glances to see if it’s true
The sun comes calling, and I keep falling
In love with you

Moonlight
Pushing us forward
The night’s growing older
Time slips away
Words stall
So soft and so subtle
Keep holding each other
Through the break of day

Your smile lingers, and I keep stealing
Glances to see if it’s true
The sun comes calling, and I keep falling
In love with you

The background fades
The notes cascade
Playfully devoted to the moment
The patterns change
A light illuminates
Shining bright on all I’ve ever wanted

All I’ve ever wanted
You’re all I’ve ever wanted
Track Name: Need Somebody
Panic one moment into the next
Working towards some self respect
Holding out for salvation
Or just a little little bit of motivation
It’s all in my mind
When I think the pain doesn’t lie

It doesn’t lie.

Well I think I might just need somebody
Sooner or later

It’s not about the lack of conversation
Or the heartache that’s been exaggerated
These days haven’t been so bright
I keep my head up and try, I try to focus on the light

Well I think I might just need somebody
Sooner or later

End of days, Love is strange
It once made me feel new
I can’t explain, carried away
After a drink or two
In a minute I’ll find God
But first I’d like to meet you
I’ve been searching all night long
I hope you’re searching too

I said, “Hey, I hope you’re searching too.”
Track Name: Wasteland
It’s such a beautiful day, up here in the Wasteland
It’s a beautiful day, up here in the Wasteland

Go and pray for a rainy day
You would trade every penny you saved
For one drop of hope for your shot in the dark

Crawl back to your habitat
You lay it down, you wear the fool’s crown
You know the odds, but you’re laughing it off

It’s such a beautiful day, up here in the Wasteland
It’s a beautiful day, up here in the Wasteland

Carry on, on your paper trail
Pick it up where the bread crumbs failed
Your favorite dream is where you find your final meal

So eat up before you’re eaten up
Don’t make a sound, watch for the hell hounds
It won’t be long, you can hear those bastards growl

It’s such a beautiful day, up here in the Wasteland
