Track Name: Mind's Eye Open
I've been looking for words
to describe what's in my mind's eye
Just as soon as I grasp
it goes
Yes it's gone
Oh it's so age old
I don't know what you're on but mama please don't stop

Possibly we can push aside
political persuasion
and push for peace in these times
ever so
oh so slowly
yes

well we refuse to do just what we're told
I don't know what you want
but at least it's a start

I can't help but keep wondering
how life would be if we never tried
would the water keep on flowing
and would we
really be

oh it's the oldest story ever told
what's on the other side
it runs deep
this river

still water runs deep and
violence won't sleep
nor will love
still water runs deep
so my peaceful mind won't give up

I won't give up

I'm giving in to love
Track Name: Elephant Island
I've been traveling fifty days
I've got memories to erase
oh but in each new place
I see your face

Don't miss the weather where I came from
it's always cloudy grey and rain
might as well be the same
if I feel this way

I took the night train to Koh Chang
put on the headphones and let the music play
when I hear those waves I swear I feel no pain
come on I'm gonna take you away

where the warm wind blows
where the tall grass grows
where we began to unfold
our wings yes I sing of Koh Chang

I've been traveling sixty days
no creature comforts in this place
and I anticipate
they'll have to wait

don't miss the language that I'm used to
too many words just get confused
express my point of view
through things I do

We took the night train from Koh Chang
and we're back on the same tracks
but I've got a new name
oh when you hear the music play you'll feel no pain
come on I'm gonna take you away

where the warm wind blows
where the tall grass grows
where we began to unfold
our wings yes we sing of Koh Chang

Oh come on back Koh Chang
We're gonna take you Koh Chang
Track Name: Exit Left
Unchanged
estranged
no words left to relate

so I’m leaving you now
though I know I had so much to say
anyway
neither of us is to blame
it’s just the way it goes
my love
yes it’s just the way it goes

So my name's already on the grave
before I even hit the ground
no world left to create

so you’re leaving me now
though I know you had so much to say
anyway
it’s just a topic for yesterday
and it’s just the way it goes
my love
yes it’s just the way it goes

two sides
of everything bind
someone’s loss is another's find

I'll try
with all my energy
to breathe love
and fill this mind

oh try all my enemies
they want to reach inside
and clear this mind of love
not this time
we're gonna take it back
gonna take it back
and let silence reside

all is change
so says the sage
no words left
Track Name: Bee
Take away
all of the money
they'll say
you've taken my crown
and I won't settle down
until I get mine

Aren't you
making enough honey
always buzzing around
never touching the ground
where do you find the time

Oh say something funny
I'm feeling kind of down
give no meaning to my frown
it's only a curved line

Oh how we search for the time
to be free
do you want to be you
or be just like me well
why don't we
just be

Lay me down
I can sleep when I'm close to the ground
when I'm high I can move things around
oh but I'm still searching

We take a ride
into town
yeah we're listening for the sweet sounds
streets and buildings ups and downs
yes people are flirting

Oh say
something funny
I'm feeling kind of down
give no meaning to my frown
it's just a moment in time
just a moment in time

Oh how we search for the time
to be free
do you want to be you
or be just like me well
why don't we
just be
say why don't we
Track Name: Marie
Take my hand Marie
don't you think that we might
compromise and stick around for a little while well
I've been thinking about you and me
and baby we could become
something bigger than you or I had ever dreamed well

don't you think that we might
don't you think that tonight
everything just feels so right
oh yes
alright

Oh you hold my heart Marie
and maybe sometimes you held on a little to tight
felt like I had to get free well I
I've been thinking about love and fear
and maybe if we take it slow dear
I could become the man of your dreams well

don't you think that I might
don't you think that tonight
everything just feels so right
oh yes
alright

Oh I hold you close Marie
but never lose sight
of all that you want to do
and everything that you want to be
well I've been thinking about
all the joy you bring
and every little word that I sing
is gonna proclaim the love we'll make well

don't you think that we might
don't you think that tonight
everything just feels so right
oh yes
alright
Track Name: Beach
I want to get some
play by play
so many complain about the world today
but I say
it's just another phase

No one can claim
control of our lives though many will try
but they may never find
the way I see truth
you've got me and I've got you
we've got to get through
and live one day out of time

because now
it could be forever
and we remain together
please hear me out
I believe we can turn it around

I'm trying to find someone
who will stay
here and now 'til we find out how
patiently some way to get free

too bad so sad
choices we make affect everybody every way
yet I still contemplate a

child who brings new light
knowing we continue to fight
oh please try to find a better way
let's start living for today

some may say that I am high
well I may be
but as you can see
I am real and still
we will win and we will lose
but it takes a lot when you're trying to prove
to say "mistakes were made"
and we're gonna roll with it
we're gonna deal with it
we're gonna take a chance
take a stand
and we just may survive if we
realize
we've got to realize

now
it could be forever
and we remain together
oh find it whenever you need
all the love I know you can feel it
yes you can
