Track Name: Two by Two
You and I are rolling out sidewalks
over the beautiful flowers
You and I are trampling on pinecones
lower than level with the fulcrum

Where we gonna go
when the water rises
Where we gonna go? Oh oh

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

You and I pretend to know better
As we hold on to our old ways
Falderal, decay... and we joke about it
Poor soldiers blindly advancing

Where we gonna go
when the water rises
Where we gonna go? Oh oh

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Do you foresee leaving on spaceships?
Two by two we're leaving on spaceships

Where we gonna go
when the water rises
Where we gonna go? Oh oh
Track Name: Late at Night
Staying up all night just to get it done
We can catch our breath in a sprinted run
Shaking hands at dawn with the morning sun
We're holding out, we're holding out, we're holding out strong

It's late at night
Do you wanna stay up
And play it right
You and I could make it up

I would never doubt your love
But tell me, is mine enough
To get you through the night

Feeling all your waves like a radio
Filling up my head with your indigo
Falling slowly into the afterglow
We're holding on, we're holding on, we're holding on strong

It's late at night
Do you wanna stay up
And play it right
You and I could make it up

I would never doubt your love
But tell me, is mine enough
To get you through the night

It's late at night
Do you wanna stay up
And play it right
You and I could make it up

It's late at night
My dear I know
We're almost there
Track Name: Donneur de Couleur
Ooooooh
Track Name: Don't Call Me Father
Foundation is all
We can offer to you
When you build your home
Build it with stone

Born afire, alive
With the seed of time
Dawn of man, extend your hand
Out beyond the sun

I walked on water
But in time
They started killing in my name

Don't call me "Father"
In the end
You'll see that you and I are the same

Twisted words can rot
Your tree of wisdom
Only those who search
Will know their soul

I walked on water
But in time
They started killing in my name

Don't call me "Father"
In the end
You'll see that you and I are the same
You and I are the same
Track Name: Happiness Vs. Money
I won't let my happiness depend on money
No you can't buy me happiness with money
Oh you keep getting up in the morning just to grind your teeth for money
I wonder what it's worth, all that money

Oh I feel something deep down
Telling me there's gotta be a better way to make this world go round
Oh, money
Track Name: Picnic Every Day
Come and break bread with me
We'll sit right under this tree
Do do do do do do do do do

Picnic in the morning
Picnic in the evening
I could picnic every day
I could picnic every way
With you

Blanket's spread and the eats are fine
Things are good yeah, and we've got wine
Do do do do do do do do do

Picnic in the morning
Picnic in the evening
I could picnic every day
I could picnic every way
With you

Do do do do do do do do do
Track Name: The Deep Field
When I'm looking out
Darkness, true as love is
All of life lives now
And I hardly notice
I go off to work so I get my
Tiny paycheck in the mailbox

Mystery surrounds
Every step that I've taken
When I think of all the kin it took
To get where I'm going
How far back do we have to go to consider our
Relatives to be relative to us?

Can there truly be space in my head?
To sit for hours alone, uninterrupted
Well, how long does it take to truly become awake?
Track Name: Turn the Light Out
Did you find what you're looking for?
Or did you come back looking for more?
You can turn the light out
You can turn the light out
Track Name: Stay Happy
Was that the real thing?
What are your heartaches?
I want to remedy you

Pick up the spoonful
Toss out the rain guard
There's no more hiding from it

Are you gonna come home?
Or are you gonna stay
out there in LA?

What's it, my brother?
I don't mind either way
Just as long as you stay...

I don't mind either way
Just as long as you stay happy
Oooo Oooo Oooo Oooo

I don't mind either way
Just as long as you stay happy
Oooo Oooo Oooo Oooo

I don't mind either way
Just as long as you stay happy
Oooo Oooo Oooo Oooo
Track Name: All Our Friends
I heard there was a gathering
and everyone would be there
I heard there was a following
a presence hiding in the air

I heard there was a gathering
Oh we've got so much to say

So grab your hat put on your boots
come to the show
Don't you know
We're gonna bring it back around

Everything starts small and then it grows
Just like every great idea
Thinks it's got no place to go
And then it grows

So grab your hat put on your boots
come to the show
Don't you know

If you've got no other place to be
Maybe you could come and see
All our friends
All our friends

Hang up your hat
Take off your boots
Untie yourself come on get loose
With all our friends
All our friends

Oooooooh

Now this big city is our home
As long as we've got each other
It doesn't matter where we roam
Everywhere is our home

So grab your hats
Put on your boots
Come to the show
Don't you know

If you've got no other place to be
Maybe you could come and see
All our friends
All our friends

Hang up your hat
Take off your boots
Untie yourself come on get loose
With all our friends
All our friends

Oooooooh
Track Name: It Doesn't Matter
Gone gone gone brother
Far beyond the shore line
Sink down deep into water
Breathe in all you can take with time

It doesn't matter
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
It doesn't matter
Ooo Ooo

It doesn't matter
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
It doesn't matter
Ooo Ooo

We're balanced right
On a tightrope in mid air
Our hearts are open
And our colors glow out
We spin around blurring lines
That we thought were there
Turns out they're not and
We're all just making it up

It doesn't matter
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
It doesn't matter
Ooo Ooo

It doesn't matter
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
It doesn't matter
Ooo Ooo
Track Name: These Days
Sit down and relax
You've been working hard
On your feet
There's a weight on your back
Relax

Sit down rest your eyes
Let the day slip away
And empty out your weary mind
Unwind

It's hard to find peace these days
In a city that always stays awake

Pulled away from sleep
I'm living in a dream
These days
Track Name: Keemun Tea
Talk to me so I know
What is going on
I'll be taking every moment
As it comes along

Say little words in my eardrums
I'm listening
Say little words in my eardrums
I'm listening

Oh, you better know that everything
Is gonna be alright, yeah!
Oh, you better know that everything
Is gonna be alright, yeah!
Gonna be alright, yeah!

Talk to me so I know
What is going on
I will get you your Keemun Tea
Nothing will go wrong

Say little words in my eardrums
I'm listening
Say little words in my eardrums
I'm listening

Oh, you better know that everything
Is gonna be alright, yeah!
Oh, you better know that everything
Is gonna be alright, yeah!
Oh, you better know that everything
Is gonna be alright, yeah!
Gonna be alright, yeah!
Track Name: Won't Stop Spinning
I'll be on a world
A world that won't stop spinning
I'll be on a world
A world that won't stop spinning

Around

Oh yeah
Feels good to be lazy
Taking the time I need
Just to do nothing
Life has been driving me crazy

And the world ain't slowing down

I'll be on a world
A world that won't stop spinning
I'll be on a world
A world that won't stop spinning

Around
Around
Around
Around
Track Name: Skydiving
When you jump from an airplane
You don't fall at all
Yeah the Earth's just pulling you in
It's drawn to you as well

When you find your heart broke
It's not really broke at all
Yeah you just believe the hurt
Blocked like a wall

But in meditation
There's a calm
In meditation
There's a calm

We'll have to let this go
Like it never was
Into the mystery their all
Talking of

In meditation
There's a calm
In meditation
There's a calm

You gotta (you gotta)
You gotta (you gotta)
Try

You gotta (you gotta)
(Meditation)
You gotta (you gotta)
(There's a calm)
You gotta (you gotta)
Try
Track Name: Get Down
I'm having fun with my friends
'Cause that's what we like to do
We're doing what we want
'Cause that's what we like to do

You
Got
To
GET DOWN!
Track Name: Love in the 21st Century
Your skin
Kissed by sunlight
All day walking
On the shoreline

You said something
About loving
All of me
With all you have

Come here
Into my arms
And I will hold you
Close to my heart

Lay down
Right beside me
I'll be yours
Beneath the stars

Young love
In the twenty first century
All around you
All around me

I know we have
Right before us
All the love
There ever was
Track Name: Driving

I'm driving on down on the road
Got my friends in a cab
Yeah we're driving home

Yeah, Yeah

Drive faster
Drive faster

I'm driving down now
I'm driving on down on the road
Got my friends in a cab
Yeah we're driving home
Track Name: Home
I grew up in a world surrounded by peace
I was so lucky
My soul would dance like the wind in the trees
It was so lovely
And I sure do miss those forrest sounds
The birds chirping in the summer

And I hardly know
Yeah I hardly know
Well, I hardly know

When I will be coming back

Home
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies

Home
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies

Home

Thank God for my girl
Well she gets me through
All the bull in the city
Someday I'll take her back home with me
We'll eat the fruit in the garden

And I hardly know
Yeah I hardly know
Well, I hardly know

When I will be coming back

Home
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies

Home
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies
Where my heart lies

Home (I hardly know)

When I will be
Coming back
Track Name: A Fine Way to Spend Your Time
I'm having fun
It's the summer
And I drive around
With the windows rolled down
So I catch the breeze
Like I'm out at sea

Occasionally I will sleep in
And have a dream
I believe in
But I will wake up
And laugh at what I've done

And I could watch (And I could watch)
The sky all evening long (The sky all evening long)
It's a fine (It's a fine)
Way to spend your time (Way to spend your time)

Life will go by like a freight train
Haulin' a line across the country
You gotta stay awake
To see the landscapes

All of my friends
Are so lovely
They really know
How to love me
We're close like family
And I wouldn't wanna be

Anywhere else
With anyone else
Anywhere else
No I wouldn't wanna be
I wouldn't wanna be

And I could watch (And I could watch)
The sky all evening long (The sky all evening long)
It's a fine (It's a fine)
Way to spend your time (Way to spend your time)

Yeah I could watch (Yeah I could watch)
The sky all evening long (The sky all evening long)
It's a fine (It's a fine)
Way to spend your time (Way to spend your time)
Track Name: Out Through Time
Will you wait for all your thoughts to catch up
While you are drifting away?
I'd rather be as cool as a pebble
With water flowing over me

I'm telling you that everything we do
Ripples out through time
I'm telling you that everything we do
Ripples out through time

Will you behold the kingdom foretold?
The seed exists in your soul
The wise old owl lives high in the oak
The more he saw the less he spoke

I'm telling you that everything we do
Ripples out through time
I'm telling you that everything we do
Ripples out through time
Track Name: I've Been Away
Are you coming back
To take my hand?
Are you coming back
To be my man?

I've been thinking about you love
And I just can't get enough
Well you sink me down
And I could drown
But I just can't get enough

I hung my heart out to dry
Last night
Everywhere I go I find
I'm out of time

I've been away
Been away
Been away
For a long long time
Track Name: Paradise
Do you want to come with me
To paradise
We can spend all day doing
Nothing at all
Just say the word
I'll be waiting for you
And off we will go
To paradise
