Track Name: Freedomsong
Find your mind, your place in time
and oh, to be!
Freedom's followed you, don't leave it behind
Now you see

Home,
I never want to know which way I'm going

Swear your eyes have seen all faces
But I can't explain
And oh! These days gone by and
Follow me back
Just to be!

Home
And never want to know just where I'm going

Can we surrender to the flow?

In my mind, I've seen it
Swear the truth is out there, somewhere
No matter where, no matter how
We will find it
Our time is now, it's now

Home
Never want to know where I am going

And I could say it's not the end.
Track Name: Bigsby's Big Move
Take me down this work assembly line
Bring me to a place where I can blow my mind
If by chance I wanna dance
Give me the reason and the rhyme
Tear me apart now and make me a person again

Wanna take you down, wanna take you down
To the secret town, to the secret town

Take me down where I can be myself
Load all the lights and music, cause it's all we need now
Don't go, you'll never know
What's the use in denial?
Find me where you'll find me, cause I'm making my big move

Wanna take you down, wanna take you down
To the secret town, to the secret town

I'll know where you're going this time around
I know what you're saying without a sound
The sky hangs above, the stars circle low
We're making our moves now, it's time to go

Wanna take you down, wanna take you down
To the secret town, to the secret town
Track Name: Dissolve
One to another the
faces of wonder
Follow the lights to the sky
Voices and laughter
the Sounds and vibrations
calling for time to stand still

Won't you tell me I'm still present
I feel one with everything and
I am falling down into your eyes again

Melting and dancing
the faces entrancing
Enhancing the worlds within their minds
Embrace all the wonder
embrace one and other
Dissolve into pieces and then

Won't you tell me I'm not falling
I've gone crazy for good reason
I am falling down into your eyes again

I'm not crazy but I feel ok
We were all meant for living this way
We are dreams, we are harmony found
we are spirits united by sound

Nothing is something and
Something is everything
Everything flows back to one again

Won't you tell me I'm not falling
I've gone crazy for good reason
I am falling down into your eyes again
Track Name: Black Sunday
Morning warmth, clear blue sky
It's a Sunday in July
At my perch by the shore
Unaware of what's in store

As the crowds line at the gate
The ocean churns in all its weight
Violent waves crash to the sand
Then funnel out to no-mans land

All the days I have toiled waiting for this day
When all my adventures are real
I have spoken too soon, now the storm has come
This is nothing but danger concealed

Have the hours passed through the day?
I can't feel it anyway
More intense, sun beats down
The water beckons with its sound

The crowd has swelled, 10,000 souls
Can we keep it in control
As they swim in numbers vast
There's this feeling it can't last

And they float off their feet for a moment in time
Until all their intentions are gone
In the grasp of the rip they're defenseless now
We must act before it's been too long...and all gone wrong

Got to move your head slowly
and blink your eyes
I don't think I can do this
I guess I'll give it a try

Now it hurts so bad I don't think I can do this anymore
It's a desperate time, a black Sunday calling from the shore

And exhaustion sets in as we go in again
They won't stop plunging to the abyss
Now I look like a lion but feel like a mouse
It's a day I will never forget...are we okay?

I need someone to rescue me I'm drowning in the sea
Track Name: Mountain of Sand
Come climb a mountain made of sand
A glacial remnant on the land
Where flowers seldom grow
The wind forms patterns as it blows
And what we'll find up here, we're not sure we'll ever know

The hill is steep as we attack
Take two steps forward, slide one back
But when we reach the top
We'll see for miles and we'll be free
And I'll help you my friend
because I know that you'll help me

But the clouds obscure the sun
The shade creeps back the warmth is done
The wind is whipping now, the sand kicks up and rushes to my eyes

We move to get out of the storm
The clouds retreat and we feel warm
I think back to the East
To where we found ourselves as one
I feel it all inside, a smile commences all the fun

And does my soul feel temporary
In flesh and bones instead of light
Of this I contemplate as shadows shift, the day has turned to night
Track Name: Everything Has Flanger
And as I concentrate going down
I can feel it all around
And where I step makes funny sounds
Have I been here before

Everything has flanger
Track Name: More Than Reason
I seek more than reason
For the tides and seasons now
It's now
But where was all of this before

Stars exploded from a
single point but tell me why
Oh why
And who created the creator

It had to be now, it had to be then
We must have existence
Oh, but do we know it
Out there, or within
And do we
Know where to travel

Flying nowhere but inside our minds
It happens here all of the time
Where is control, what can we find?

Learning with all that we can understand
We'll find it all out when we least expect
and they'll be there to see and feel

To know what's real
Track Name: Uncle Terence
There's got to be a reason for our consciousness and place
Our minds perceive more than we often realize

You look for understanding
It's the purpose of your life
We need imagination
We can teach ourselves to fly

Through space and time, and science will know why

And the task at hand's impossible, you know it to be true
But you know you need the courage if you want to see it through

It's the soul traveling
Without jet propulsion
Pathways to the overmind
Speaking to the great unknown and so you'll look to them to go

Tell me why we have these visions
It's a message or a power
Maybe both, how do we read it
Everyone just needs to see it now

As we separate
Into every space
Stand by as a beacon
For the universe

Tell me where to find the answers
How to find the perfect balance
Here's the power, it needs guidance
Everyone just needs to see it now

As we separate
Into every space
Stand by as a beacon
For the universe

All our souls connecting to the great unknown
We've been there before and now we think we'll be there again
And what of our minds? It seems that they are not explained
Everything experienced is real in a way

Use the tools; there's reason why they're here
Track Name: New Horizons
I see the sunshine, it's been comin' round again
I need escapin' to a place where it won't end
Cause I've been jaded, I've been frustrated with myself
I need new faces, oh lord knows I need some help

So I went down to the campsite
Where everything suspends itself in time
There's a new life we've been talking about
what I could leave behind
that thought never crossed my mind

There's no worries, just be yourself and you'll be free
the music moves you, like water flowing down a stream
You'll be taken, on currents known but never seen
up to a new place, a starry haze inside a dream

In the woods of great New York
On Colorado's mountains in the dark
In fields of endless lovers near the garden of our songs
what I could leave behind
that thought never crossed my mind

On the road I'm movin' on
From dusk to dawn I'm singin' with the rest
I've been brought back(In New Horizons) from the depths into the sun
oh what I could leave behind
that thought never crossed my mind
