Track Name: We're Just Friends
Call me up late at night
Can we get together to my delight
She says Oh we're just friends

Late in the evening or afternoon
Said i need to see you make it soon
and Oh we're just friends

And she asks me just how will this end
I guess when we say we'll just be friends

You know I'm more than lust and greed
But sometimes I buddy is all i need
and Oh we're just friends

Old habits don't die easily
I said if she come back after I set her free
and Oh we're just friends

And she asks me just how will this end
I guess when we say we'll just be friends
Track Name: Jump into the Pool
Not too far from the here and now
Lies a place with no who's or how's
Don't ask where but it lies at hand
Between the stars and the grains of sand
Your judge will speak and your jester fool
Lay your ears from them and simply
Jump into the Pool

Instead of telling lies
cover up your sorry self's behind
Instead of asking why
open up your eyes, have a look inside

The world's too dark for all these half grown men
The fools and cowards who will play pretend
When you throw your weight around does it land where you intend?
So much chatter for things simply put
Think it over too long
It won't do you any good

Remember you are you, including
the changes you'll be going through
You can think of better things to do
Far between and few
Hard to see them through
Track Name: When It Gets You
My friend I'll always feel a fraction of you pain
It's really quite a bit and covers happiness and shame
I'm sorry you were caught up in someone's silly game
You know when it gets you, I wanna feel that too

I've had stories of my burnings from days long past
As I recall you came to patch me up and still real fast
These crazy girls will leave you man with some real awful gash
When it gets you, I wanna feel that too

You know there's treasure buried neath that X no?
I found it when I was down to my dregs so
I swear this storm will pass and you'll be back up on your legs
You know when it gets you, I wanna feel that too

The cold facts can be your consolation
This too will pass along with all of your frustration
There are now new paths that can still lead to your elation
When you're fresh and new, I wanna feel that too
Track Name: Sin Boldly
Somewhere between black and white and wrong and right
Lies what I need to do to make my path clear to you
Nothing is simple through monochromatic
A million grey shades ain't short of fantastic
So please

I've been waiting for you arrive
Or hoping to get back to you

I spent so much time sleeping in ignorant surety
The judge and the lawman did never alert me
To things that made me open my eyes
And when I awoke thought the sheriff left town
But now it turns out he was never around
So please

I've been waiting for you to arrive
Or hoping to get back to you
Track Name: Sky Where We Stand
Pick up the pace when I'm slowing down
And I'll do the same when thing turn back around
It's fleeting to see but there's sky we stand
Climb higher and higher with our eyes fixed on the land
Please take my hand

With times getting tough we can fend for our own
Digging further and further right into our holes
In the fight to survive or to prop up our pride
You can cut yourself off from the thing that give you sight
It'll be all right

Lessons unlearned or forgotten and burned
Can be painful to hear when the tables are turned
We can walk on the path we can march on the grass
We can store the right treasure so our good things might last
Don't cling too fast
All things must pass
Track Name: Bright Lights
I'll never know why
They caught us in the bright light
Like a spotlight shining taking you away
To the center stage where you can get along without me
Where applause and light are all the love you need

I'm perched alone with a foolish girl
My eyes on here, my mind on the world
I'd sworn off all her kind
I don't know but I might change my mind

I'll never know why
They caught us in the bright light
Like a spotlight shining taking you away
To the center stage where you can get along without me
Where applause and light are all the love you need

She came to me on a dreary night
It'd been years but everything felt all right
Can't forget the look in her eyes
A crazy girl who was anything but shy

Easy come and easy go
Lost and gone with the ebb and flow
What she wants is only hers to know

I'll never know why
They caught us in the bright light
Like a spotlight shining taking you away
To the center stage where you can get along without me
Where applause and light are all the love you need
Track Name: Cloud Burst
Why would I do
Like I wanna do
Like a cloud burst
Thunder and rain

Why would i today
When you gonna stay
Like a cloud
Like a cloud only to stay

To the meadow
Lay low like a stone
Someone taller
will catch the bolt

When the clouds do break
My love now awake
Coming home
Coming home in from the cold
