Track Name: Life in a Dream
I want to go to a place where I can't hear a sound
Far from the din of the cars and the hum of the crowds

So I can think for a while
But I'm still wasting time

There is a mountain, a palette of soft, ghostly green
Voices are calling and tumbling down from the stream
You always told me I spent too much time in my dreams
And I should be living and saying the things that I mean

So I'll be climbing now
But I'm still unsure how
Track Name: I'm Coming Down
I’m the last one to the show
Projector love, silver screen throes
I’m at home inside this dream
Did they come just to laugh at me

Come gather round
I’m coming down

I'm more scared than they could know
And I never know which cards to show

Come gather round
I’m coming down
Track Name: Under the Blood Moon
In the fall of a sullen sun
Let your mind and your visions run
Earth won't sleep when the day is done
Time has left it's mark
The beating of it's heart

I hold the light that keeps me alive
With a burning inside that calls from the night

Keeping time like a battered drum
In the fields where their hopes had sung
Glow like the moon but hang like a sun
Time has left it's mark
The beating of it's heart

I hold the light that keeps me alive
To weather this season to weather this night
I climb up the crest just to see all in sight
But in the still of this night the coyote will cry

One foot in the river, one foot in the fire
These blood moon dreams will come easy tonight
Track Name: She's a River
Wind away down
Cut the ground, through the town
Light the way on
Through the shroud, through the shroud

If she's a river, I'm a stone

Wash away
Silent days and doubtful haze
This I found
Hard to hold on to the ground

If she's a river, I'm a stone
Track Name: Hold That Swollen Tide
So much said in the silent and still
You take it all in until you've had your fill
But can you hold that swollen tide?
Cos I have crossed this bridge too many times
Too many times

Holding on for spring the bloom of the flower
When her breath comes slow and the wine starts to sour
But can you hold that swollen tide?
Cos I have crossed this bridge too many times
Too many times

Behind that look there's the eyes of a schemer
Swaying me like the wind to a streamer
But can you hold that swollen tide?
Cos I have crossed this bridge too many times
Cos I have crossed this bridge too many times
To look behind
Track Name: Don't Talk To Me
Bitter poison in my ear
Do you hear the words I hear?
Lift me up then put me out
I'm only talking to myself

I'm running with this silhouette
I know I ain't seen the worst of it
Go ahead go ahead get on with it
Strip me of my pride

Don't talk to me
Cos I believe in what you say
Don't talk to me
Cos I believe the words you say

I'm running with this silhouette
I know I ain't seen the worst of it
Go ahead go ahead get on with it
Strip me of my pride

This won't be what levels me
This won't be what levels me

Your bitter poison in my ear
Do you believe the things you hear?
Track Name: The Runner
Has she figured you out?
Your fears and your doubts - don't say it
No you don't need 'em now
The lessons on how to fake it

Your feet are aching and you're on the run
This piece of string you've got her dangling from
Never alone never with anyone
You're just waiting for the storm to come

So your cover's been blown
Gotta pick up the phone - just say it
No more playing your games
No more shifting the blame - just take it

Did you think you would get to hold her
But never show her anything?
Have you figured her out?
Her fears and her doubts - cos she's waiting

Your feet are aching and you're on the run
This piece of string you've got her dangling from
Never alone never with anyone
You're just waiting for the storm to come
Track Name: Down That Road
When we were young, rulers of the street
Running holes in the soles on our feet
And up ahead where the roads would meet
Staying left - it smelled sweet
I never looked back

But I know
I've been told
I've been shown
I've been led down that road
But sometimes what we think we need the most
We'll never hold

So set fire, to the one you used to know
Glimpses through the smoke sometimes will show
What really lies below

But I know
I've been told
I've been shown
I've been led down that road
But sometimes what we think we need the most
We'll never hold

But I know
I've been told
I've been shown
I've been led down that road
But sometimes what we think we need the most
We'll never hold
