Track Name: Story Of...
they said, "well, boy you must be crazy,
you must be lazy, you must be lost.
You must not know the great, great cost
of high rise living in this world."

"Don't you know the time is 9 to 5
if you're to make it out alive?
Here's your pencil, here's your key
We'll cheer you on to victory and a corner view of the world
A corner view of the world!"

I shook my head and shook their hands,
and headed off to distant lands
to test the virtue of their sound
philosophy

On a dusty road in a dusty land,
I met an old and rusty man
If I had to guess his age, a day older than
the bible's first page

He had his cash and he wore it proud,
Shoulders back and a voice real loud,
but then he whispered in my ear,

"I'd trade you all my wealth and failing health,
for the years you have ahead."

I carried on but his words lingered in my head

I traveled years and saw the world,
Fell in love with a fine young girl;
Now at home not a day goes by
Without a vision of the old man's eyes
And his words echo in my head...
Track Name: From The World I Have Known
there's a house, a hill
there's a room familiar voices fill,
and the words they say
will keep me as I make my way
far from the world I have known

so don't go, just stay
let me leave you in this perfect way
and the night is yours to breathe

it was heaven here with you,
heaven here with you,
it was heaven here with you,
it's over now

far from the world I have known

in my head I'm on my own
and there's nothing more than this,
in my head, on my own

in my head I'm on my own,
and there's nothing I will miss,
in my head, on my own
Track Name: Park
the cop said, "sir, you must get home,
it's after 12, your wife will wait up
with the light on."

I said, "sir, you must not remember me,
from way back in our history,
but I ain't got no wife, no car,
no place to call my own."

"I've got this bench in this here park,
and wait 'til hours after dark,
to hide my face and my disgrace
from my old friends, and even you."

"With your uniform and badge,
Shows the fortune that you've had,
compared to me and my confinement
to this solitude."

"Well once upon a time, I'd pass a nickel,
pass a dime
to the likes of me."

"I would have thought that gesture then
would circle back to me again,
but it's not so. It's not so."

"You can search me head to toe,
you'll find no bottle in the snow,
no poor excuse. No bad investment lost.
No excuse. So what's the use... in asking why.

I'll just lie here.

I've got the stars above me,
I've got the stars above me,
And all I need is love. All I need is love, love.
Track Name: Emil
Emil laughs and downs his medicine
A hundred years, with few ahead of him
I bring dessert, the same as every day,
But now his face grows tired and he says,

"You know, my dad - he always used to say,
'Son, don't get old.'
It's funny how today
His words mean more to me than yesterday,"

And with that Emil went to sleep for good.

The bright lights flash, no time to swerve away,
5 years old, the stone will mark the day;
The 6th year passed without an hour of play,
The questions steal a mother's life a way

Middle aged at 25 he sailed
Along in life, the future yet unveiled
At 51, his final breath exhaled
The chapter closed and left us reeling

Well here I am, here at the end of it.
Yes here I am, here at the end of it,
Can I just have one moment more?
My wife is coming in the door,
I'd like to tell her...
Track Name: Years Ago
Years ago
I was twenty-something years alive
and dreaming

Years ago
I was everything you wanted me
to be

Years ago
Time was all we had to spend
and it was

Years ago
Anything you want to have,
it was yours

Years ago
Sunny days were all we knew,
and it was

Years ago
Love was all we had to give,
and it was

Years ago
We were everything they wanted
us to be

Years ago
We were everything a simple life
would let us be

Well now you know
who I am
And if you want to go,
Make your plans

I don't want to be forgotten.
I don't want to be forgiven.
Track Name: Hazel
she is love.
I want to tell all the world,
that I'm in love
with a blue eyed, blue eyed, blue eyed, blue eyed girl
and she can tell all the world
that she is loved
mmm

she came to me high atop a desert hill,
we watched the traffic race below
and in a field, we welcomed the daylight hour
and it was love, it was love

she is love.
I want to tell all the world,
that I'm in love
with a blue eyed, blue eyed, blue eyed, blue eyed girl
and she can tell all the world
that she is loved
mmm

i see one path lit before us, don't you know.
one future to share between our lives
and i will give you love
i will give you all my love
you my life, you my wife

she is love.
I want to tell all the world,
that I'm in love
with a blue eyed, blue eyed, blue eyed, blue eyed girl
and she can tell all the world
that she is loved
mmm
Track Name: View From Way Up Here
well the view from way up here,
it doesn't change too much,
from spring, summer to fall

but in december all the questions rise
like fireflies
and no, i can't catch 'em all

and then this room becomes a crowd,
as all the voices sing aloud,
"now we know we never owned our blood and bone,"
and that's the view from way up here.

a man goes walking through the woods,
to see the other side, to see
the other side.

but he can't go it on his own,
no he can't go it all alone, not on his own.
until he trips and finds his mind
and grows a love for all mankind

and that my friends is what you know,
it's what you sew, when you've the view
from way up here.

a man takes boat on out to sea,
to see the other side, to see
what he can see (all aboard!)

he'll up and go there on his own,
he'll take the world on all alone,
out on his own

until he drifts into the storm
and all the shapes he knew lose form
he shuts his eyes and rides along,
the long dark night and through to dawn

and what he learns is what he earns
is all for not
and that's the view from way up here.
Track Name: Don
don,
don't you ever see the light
that shines on all of us,
that shines on you

don,
chasing windmills in the dark
that shines on all of us,
that shines on you

don,
don't you ever feel the love
that falls on all of us
that falls on you

don,
on your big horse, oh so proud
so proud of all of us
are you proud of me?

don,
don't you ever feel the love
that shines on all of us
that shines on you

don't you ever
don't you ever
Track Name: Machine
clinging to the earth at 95,
simulated lungs and hearts and eyes

seeing where the neighbors change their clothes
watch the actor's child as she grows

any question asked, an answer found
static world where pixeled friends abound

all we know is living by machines,
living years beyond the system's means

from his desk the voyeur goes unseen,
trillionaires created from the screen

the talking heads are in my living room,
arctic fronts and savings coming soon!

life is a dream, in the machine
Track Name: Blame
you know i will always be the one to
stop and take the blame
you know i will always be the one to
stop and take the blame

another day with our words in the way
of a perfect afternoon
you could've walked, but you turned
and you talked and you said the
one thing that you knew

would stay,
would play, on my mind

you know i will always be the one to
stop and take the blame
you know i will always be the one to
stop and take the blame

and so you won, with a twist of your tongue
but your smile betrays your heart
the morning sun will forget what we've done
and for the moment, we'll be happily ever after

you know i will always be the one to
stop and take the blame
you know i will always be the one to
stop and take the blame
