Track Name: Get To You
lost and gone, to bring my love to you
so long far away from the love I choose
i was down but not confused
by the sound of the ocean between me and you

oh i should know which voice to choose
i should know how to get to you
Chorus:
I should know how to get to you
I should know how to get to you

I stepped in to an ocean deep and wide
It was akin to looking in where I usually hide
On my skin felt like I just might die
So I swim in an ocean of all the salt that burns my eyes

Oh I should know which voice to choose
My should heart know how to get to you
Track Name: Some Kind of Plan
you want to know but you can’t know
whether you stay and when you got to go
when life ends you know what you can
 
behind the window of your soul
love and freedom two parts in the whole
searching for truth attached to the body your in
 
thank you for having me when
destiny came to you in my name
a light for the couple you were then
growing now like a headlight on a train
 
what used to be good now is my crime
what is right changes in time
making heaven or hell so akin

feeling retched but the only way that this life might be my own
so every day i don the straight jacket you see that i've got on
anything you choose tied up like a fool what you call your freedom
free is just a word that means you don't know what you might become

what you feel happen deep inside
when you don't see me still you have sight
do i just say it till you see?

between our hearts hangs a chord
connecting our love with nary a word
if ever you need to find me you have the ability
Track Name: Friends
When things fall apart you can simplify It'll calm you down
Looking at component parts with fresh eyes You can get around
You wanna see the whole thing now But you atomize

We'll see your feet back on the ground
Yes it's nice to have you hear I need someone to be around

Turn again to my friends Like a new home with the same address
Once again to my friends For simple words like no and yes
Turn again to my friends For a quiet room where I can get some rest
Come on rest your head

When things fall apart don't you watch em die It'll break your heart
What began as beautiful may seem a lie As it falls apart
Beauty of a flower Won't fade away
Track Name: Don't Come Cheap
Underslept and thrown away My mind the compactor
Inside my head today like this old tractor

It won't stay this way I'm the common factor
The mine field today a fire disaster

All I know I don't want this sorrow

i ask for help Don't rely only on the self-examined
Life alone I know there's so much more
Don't come cheap Anything with that much love immediately repeats

Cut up in the tractor beam will it heal with a plaster
All the most disturbing dreams just desserts and laughter
Everyone is a balance beam don't look down just ask her
Do you hate that about me? finish reading the chapter

Do you want some more look straight and ask her

Does she do it alone? does she rely on some other home better remedy?
What you got in the cabinet there you wanna share it with me?
Yes I will share it with you anytime that you wander through my home

Don't come cheap
Track Name: Sophia
i've been so far across the water
i'm coming home now to be sure
you can trust that I will guard the future
and tell you stories of what came before

sophia your light shines so brightly
will you be the guide that lights my way
when I fly away into blue sky
darling while I'm gone will you hold my place?

i've found a field of lovely flowers
and only one blossom holds my gaze
on a starry horse now she rides the night sky
and every star in heaven give her chase

sophia your light shines so brightly
will you be the guide that lights my way
you can fly away into blue sky
darling while your gone away from home
isaid darling while your gone i'll hold your place
Track Name: Boy
A song for a boy sing out for the good
Sing for the good boy he brings you to see
Anything you bring to the boy
Springs to life in his new humanity

Round your cares his hand will curl As he now sees into your world
The path you walk together will forever ring
 
He hears one clear voice, One with your boys, One in the joy to find a friend
In the good boy attend rising in
One good voice, Be one with your boy, One in the joy to meet the friend
In the good boy you attend inside of him

A song for a boy sing out for the good
Sing for the good boy he brings you to see
Each song brings a different view
Mimicking and preparing you man to be
 
The song and the good boy blessed to bring to each the other’s best
Your gossamer intuition leading him
 
He hears one clear voice, He is one good boy …
Benjamin
 
Before you knew if he would sing along
Sang for him a familiar song trustingly
A song for a boy before he has words
Beautiful melody he has heard magically
 
Round your cares his hand will curl As he now sees into your world
The path you walk together will forever ring
 
He hears one clear voice, One with your boys, One in the joy to find a friend In the good boy attend inside of him
Track Name: Soldier
I am a good patriot I fight your wars
I march as straight as the ones who marched before
I am a good soldier I know what’s right
There are still guns out there that rattle in the night
Can you hear em they rattle in the night
Yes I fear em they rattle in the night

I fought this war for you in some foreign land
I left the war behind but they sent me back again
Everything feels special with you as it should
Coming home to you makes me feel so good
I wanna make you feel so good
Is it alright that I don’t feel so good

You knew me as the paper boy who brought you the news
As the bartender any booze you choose
I am a good father or so I’m told
I’m just an American boy tryin to grow old
Trying to grow old
Tryin to grow old is it alright
Trying to grow old
