Track Name: Sanctuary
Well it ain't hard to remember you
Walkin' home without no shoes
Listenin' to that old dog
Who sings us crooning songs
Talkin' as the sky turns blue

And have you seen those orange birds
Talkin' as the hide behind their words
I say it feels so wrong
But you tell me not for long
Just let 'em run and join the herd

Well Buddhist Monks and Shooting Stars
It's no wonder why we fall so hard
For a peaceful place
One that cannot be erased
I hope my music flies you far

We've found a peaceful place
One that cannot be erased
I hope my music flies you far
Track Name: Soldiers on the Hill
Sailed across the wide open ocean
Hands a'wavin' in a westwardly motion
And when it came time to sink or to swim
I chose to fly high far above them

Walkin' down to the stream out side of town
Where water flows ocean bound
The bombs did once fly but I stayed inside
Watching the bullets turning the tides

And when they start a'callin'
For the soldiers on the hill
I'll stay right here with what is so dear to me
Watching the evening so still

Sailed across the wide open ocean
Hands a'wavin' in a westwardly motion
The bombs did once fly but I stayed inside
Watching the bullets turing the tides

A pacifist in the middle of a war
Michael won't you help me row my boat ashore
Track Name: In the Nighttime
In the Nighttime when
I told you where I'd been
I saw it in your eyes
I took you by surprise

And it hit me then
You knew just where I'd been
And if I did so leave
I'd take you there with me

I never knew until right there
How much that you really do care
No matter where I'd be
I'd always have you with me

We cried a little tear
For all that we hold dear
That's when I really knew
How much I truly love you

And demons do come at night
But if I just hold you tight
They'll dance until they fall
And we will rule them all
Track Name: Lucky Day
Surprise surprise it's your lucky day
No time for wise get into my way
The breeze is easily taking away
The bags that I have carried this whole fucking way

Oh rise, yes rise, you beautiful blooms
This sunlit night has lost all the doom
I cannot speak, my words have collapsed
Into this flower field that's never been mapped

And when the stars they line just up right
I'll be your captain into the night
The cold rain, well, it has gone away
But the rainbow oh it is here to stay
Track Name: Simon Says
Let's back up
In my pick up truck
Of time and space
While you wear that lace, you rock that lace

And if this were
Three bright months ago
We just wouldn't know
We couldn't know what to

Expect in the daylight
Girl it's just too bright
And well, we're too white
So stay with me where things are right

And Metaphors
Act as semaphores
For our daily chores
Ain't that what you wore when we played

Simon says
Oh simon says
Oh simon says

Well love we're so
Parts unto one whole
You touch my soul
You play my soul as if it's gold

And love we are
Up amongst the stars
In our custom cars
I hear there's a nice bed and breakfast on mars

Simon says
Let us touch our heads
And don't ever dread
The way we sleep when we're in bed

And follow me
As I do lead thee
In a game where three
Is decided by two

And touch my knees
Simon says please

So please come clean
With what you mean
So we can share what we both really wanna see
