Track Name: Dream Replay
I was looking for the time
to reflect and rewind
calculate these things
running through my mind
started thinking a lot
about the lapses in memory we've got
about cause and effect
the power of a thought

I had a dream replay
when I saw your face today
like a photograph captures
a thousand words to say
I let it through to myself
a connection to something else
through the haze of my laughter
from up upon the shelf

I had a dream replay
when I took a toke today
Johnny Law didn't have
a single word to say
why would he anyway?

soar across Nebraska
til the Rocky Mountains catch you in the sky
climb up to a cresting crescent
blessed be this wondrous high
Track Name: Cloud Nein
knocked off of my cloud again
I got caught underneath the rain
that grows the grassy pasture green
on a vast Nebraska plain
I've been working a steady job
to buy a new guitar
staying in one place
to put some gas into my car
but it ain't so bad
at least now I know what I had

knocked off of my cloud again
and then I waddled through the mud
it only cost me an arm, a leg,
an imperial pint of blood
I'm learning to love myself
because it's better for my health
accumulating wealth
that I'll go waste on something else
but it ain't so bad
at least now I know what I had

knocked off of my cloud again
not a second late or soon
I landed on the mountaintop
beneath the harvest moon
I gaze across the land
trying to understand
the scope of things unplanned
hidden in my hand
but it ain't so grand
goes on and on and on and

knocked off of my cloud again
but at least I can't complain
Track Name: Blue Moon
Cinderella's spinning
she forgot about her shoe
another spunion's running around here
looking for a view
dreads, heads, and jesters
incited to make a move
inviting you to find the vibe
and celebrate that groove
Father Time's alive and kicking
he knows a thing or too
Mama's wine is pouring back and forth
from me to you
the kids are on the playground
trying to get their kicks
Magician reveals the secret
of Dionysus' tricks

Molly's in the kitchen
she can take the heat
she's only sweating bullets
because she had a lot to eat
barkeep's working hard
I hope you don't forget to tip
we're swaying here together
stranded on the ship
another starving artist
is starving for their turn
you can give a mouse a cookie
but the fire always burns
and I've got a fever
of a hundred and three
pass desire back and forth
from you to me
Track Name: Loose Screws
don't you love the glowing wake?
don't you love the breath it take?
don't you love the sun the best
saying goodbye behind the mountain crest?
don't you love the moon tonight?
don't you wish it never ends?
don't you love the morning light?
well I guess that all depends

on a couple friends
on a couple loose ends
on a couple light whys
loose screws for the sunrise

don't you love your friends in tribes?
don't you love the cool wind of warmer vibes?
don't you love the sound the same
driving in the sunset walking in the rain?
don't you love the moon tonight?
don't you wish it never ends?
don't you love the morning light?
well I guess that all depends

on a couple friends
on a couple loose ends
on a couple light whys
loose screws for the sunrise
Track Name: Sediment Spin
to reach for the pearl
in water unclear
stir it and only
more mud will appear
but sediment settles
dirt, rocks, and metals
lending the lotus
a thousand bright pedals
then you see it right here

through all of the tides that arise
at the whims of the wind

call it a motion
the moon on your mind
calm as the ocean
the light it let shine
in reflexive reflection
subjective direction
tuned intuition
to subtle suggestion
then you see it right here

through all of the tides that arise
at the whims of the wind
through all of the ripples that rip
through the sediment spin
Track Name: Merry Go Round
there are things
you will
but will not ever now
change remains
the chains
of cause effect the flow
they told me "listen to me, child
you're part of this race
like it or not
don't you get caught
with all the lines in your face
needlessly thought"

turn the page
and take
a long forgotten breath
the winter falls
and calls
for unforgiving death
they told me "listen to me, child
life will find a way
or it will not
don't you get caught
in all the cracks in the plan
needlessly fought"

merry go round
no source ever found
the mysteries linger
spinning the earth on a finger

take the time
to define
your own utopium
radiate
your mind
like some kind of kind plutonium
they told me "listen to me child
there's never a could
that isn't is
who could you kid?
there's only a should
that isn't is
under your lid
perfection is not grandiose dreams
not to be real
it's in all of the things that you
hear, see, taste, love, hate, fuck, find, have, and feel"
Track Name: Speaking Of
my weary soul
my rock and my...
can I get a drum roll?
my self control
I guess
we're all blessed and
speaking of
I wish you life and love

my weary eyes
are my only prize
"can I hear some sweet lies"
the great philosopher cries
but I digress
we're all blessed and
speaking of
I wish you life and love

my garden grow
so subtle and slow
though my zen's in the know
I forget to just let go
so I guess
you're a blessed
litte shove
I wish you life and love

my bow has been drawn
it's time to fly on
time to sing you a song
about the just before dawn
so I guess
we're all blessed and
speaking of
I wish you life and love
