Track Name: The Problem
The problem with people
is that they’re human beings
No leaps of faith
without that guarantee
Anywhere we ever roamed
Stayed the same and gotten bored
Infernos at our backs
Setting fires forevermore

Deep inside the caves
Who needs eyes to see?
Where dragons transform to serpents
While wolves wade out to sea
Shedding coats that never dry
Taking breath through third eye
Singing songs for a thousand miles
Prey to no one who pales in size

There used to be many different kinds of people
And no one knows
Track Name: Whisper
Knock about this house, drag feet across this floor
Guess the passing time, with scratches on the door

The easily amused, the vandals and unkind
Rare among the few, my moonlit valentine

Been waiting here for ages, a beast in the zoo
My scream comes out a whisper
Can you hear me too?

Out in your sunrise town, the colorful pretend
From one end to the other people shop for happiness
I am searching still, retracing all my steps
Surrounded by familiar things
Just like you, more or less
Track Name: Ok
When I was a little boy in buildings pointed at the sky
They told me how I ought to live and what happens when I die
And even though I was pretty young I almost understood
That all they were trying to do was make sure I'd be good

It's gonna be Ok,
It's gonna be Ok,
It's gonna be Ok,
But I never believed

And after school, learned a few more things
Thought I'd read that God was dead
I didn't care at all; In fact, I knew I'd been misled
With ennui, and my anarchy, a touch of bitterness and some pride
The method of the scientist helped me realize

It's gonna be Ok,
It's gonna be Ok,
It's gonna be Ok,
But I couldn't be sure yet

Beyond this earth and the galaxies is a neverending sky
Infinity is a real thing, just won't fit inside our minds
I'm not alone in this lucky life, and this love could only be
a gift from a universe that's looking out for me

It's gonna be Ok,
It's gonna be Ok,
It's gonna be Ok,
But I'll never know why
Track Name: Shadow of the Earth
Out there somewhere is a black hole
When we get there, they say time will slow
It's a white whale that keeps us from home
But we won't realize our ship's been destroyed

The story of life is dark and long
A tale of dread, war, and loss
But love is the only weapon we've got
Don't let anybody spoil the plot

So let's stop believing ourselves whenever we say,
"We were born at the wrong time; Meant for a different day"

Children of the Moon
Dawn's coming soon
It's the eve of our rebirth
In the shadow of the Earth
Track Name: Rocking Chair
Life is short, but when I'm alone
It feels long enough
At times it's rough

When we climb we do just fine
But things seemed so tall
When we were small

All the silly things I've built couldn't compare
The two of us could never fill
Our daddy's rocking chair

There's the ghost I feel the most
Out among the trees
It walks with me

Maybe now I've made it proud
But what's wrong with me?
It's hard to believe

When all the silly things I've built couldn't compare
The two of us could never fill
Our daddy's rocking chair
Track Name: Be a Part
Don't look for danger whereever you go
Talk to strangers and travel the globe

Be a part of this world as much as you can
And when it gets hard, just stick to the plan

Human connections are easy to make
If you keep a pure heart for goodness sake

Be a part of this world as much as you can
And when it gets hard, just stick to the plan

Take care of the friends you're lucky to know
Take care of yourself whereever you go

Be a part of this world as much as you can
And when it gets hard, just stick to the plan

You'll make your mistakes
You'll even fall down
I'll be there with you
You're a part of me now

You're a part of me now
