Track Name: Gardens & Beaches
First you showed me your heart
Then, you drunk dialed me on the phone
We are lost and confused again
Do we have to end this so soon?

It's easy to make a drawing
When you're using tracing paper
But, I'm better with an eraser
That's why my page is still blank

Across this land that we live in
Down the fiber optic road
Do you speak in a cryptic code?
Said that things would never end this way…

You look good in the moonlight
And sound better on the phone
Existing only in late night
Now you're creepin' in low tones

I'd never ask you to scan me your love
Or, even know exactly what i'm thinking of
One day I'm fine and the next day I'm shot
You've got to see that what you're asking for is a lot

Are there more gardens than beaches?
Or, silver shopping malls
In this new age that we click in
They could see we had it comin'

I'd never ask you to scan me your love
Or, even know exactly what i'm thinking of
One day I'm fine and the next day I'm shot
You've got to see that what you're asking for is a lot

Are there more gardens than beaches?
Or, silver shopping malls
In this new age that we click in
They could see we had it comin'
Track Name: Hope Is What We Aim For
It was crazy how we ran out to the throng
And, then watched it all through pane window glass doors
And, then you're wondering why we lifted all those bags
Cause it was the time, the only time we had

In a way, I settled down
In a way, you settled down
In a way, we all settled down
for something different

Packed our bags and head to foreign lands
To find ourselves and make a different plan
In the packs on our backs we carried all we had
If we ever get back, we'll start all over again

In a way, I settled down
In a way, you settled down
In a way, we all settled down
for something different

We get a little sentimental
Stuck a little in the past
and we both know there's nothing wrong with that

We get a little sentimental
Stuck a little in the past
and we won't show there's anything wrong with that.
Track Name: A Great Lakes Song
Since she put me down
I've been out doing in my head.
I come in late at night
And, in the morning I just lay in bed.

I was gonna come around
But I think I'm going to let it grow.
And, when the time is right
I'm gonna take her to the place I know.

And, sing a Great Lakes Song
On and on
When you're sailing on Huron

We're heading Up North
Where the air is clear
And the water's cool
In a glass bottom boat,
Pull the rope,
To get across the pool

When we settled for the night
We were right on rocky shore
If we see the Northern Lights,
Satellite, we couldn't ask for more.

Sing a Great Lakes Hymn
Again and again
When you're swimming in Michigan.

We pass the lake
Our minds wander
Down a waterfall

We try to make our way northward
Just in time for fall

When you gave the map away
It seemed like dire straits

Superior
Huron
Erie
Ontario
Michigan
Track Name: It Could've Been Worse
Frightened by the wind ooooh ooooo
Mistaken for a star oooooooh oh o
The view is always the same
Whether captured near or far
Placin' all the blame
Even though it never did belong

My mind is loaded
I just can't sleep
I'm remembering all those things you said
And they don't make sense
Even though I know we really did luck out.
Track Name: Calamity Land
They say that to the victor go the spoils
But, what happens when the superpowers run out of oil?

They're selling maps to Calamity Land
Which helped me find my old watch, but I still haven't found the hands

Pull the seats out the back of the van
Pump your tires, hop in, and cruise out as fast as you can

Can you canoe through a blizzard whiteout?
People try it… Let's right the bow!

I thought by now that we should've been further down
That lonesome road

Your life is a mystery story line.
When will we find the next clue?

They make a living snapping telephone poles
But, the pay's not enough to make it all worth my time

They found the blackbox filled with yesterday's lies
But once they cracked the code, a melancholy story unfolds

Croc tears come from alligator eyes
So, you'd better hype up or soon we will all fall down

Those cats put a lot of garbage out there…
And, people buy it! We wonder how?

I thought by now that we should've been further down
That lonesome road

Your life is a mystery story line.
When will we find the next clue?

The shape of the land will change in time
Where will we find what we choose?

What happens when the water's like gold?
There's a drain on the lake, now the bottom becomes the top.

Tragic car crash in a sinkhole swarm
When the rain was too much, the ambulance siren wouldn't sound.

Chose the right path, but we took it at the wrong time.
Let's take a new look, cause it looks like the map has changed.

They're bringing lawn chairs to the 4 alarm fire
Now, nothing is left…it all came down.

I thought by now that we should've been further down
That lonesome road

Your life is a mystery story line.
When will we find the next clue?

Too large to take in at one time,
Space awaits to vanish the view.
Track Name: Treetops
Blaze a trail through Monguagon Woods
Try to find the Will o' the Wisp
Right at dusk is when the treasure hunt will begin

Cross the rock wall to the unknown
Our eyes adjust the further we go
But we still can't see beyond the delicate fractal pattern

Deeper under the canopy
Mixed is fear with anxiety
What awaits is what's been told for many years now

In the treetops we'll find peace of mind
We'll lose track of time as we hide
And the green ceiling binds vine to vine
The dappled sunlight shine fills my eyes
Our eyes can't divine all the lines
The treetops divide us from sky

And, I'm pulled to pieces

The pattern goes on and on and on and on and on...
Track Name: Before the Ancient Light
…And the stardust
Reated substantial mass
Building layers
Upon our past

On a backward slide
Through the firmament
Back in time…
Before the light

…And the stardust / On a backward slide
Created substantial mass / Through the firmament
Building layers / Back in time…
Upon our past / Before the light

Before the light
Before the light
Before the light

Before the light
Before the light
When all was cold
After the dark
Before the light
Before the light

…And the stardust
Created substantial mass
Building layers
Upon our past

On a backward slide
Through the firmament
Back in time…
Before the light

…And the stardust / On a backward slide
Created substantial mass /Through the firmament
Building layers / Back in time…
Upon our past / Before the light

Before the light
Before the light
Before the light

Before the light
Before the light
When all was cold
After the dark
Before the light
Before the light

To bend time and space in circles
Or to send events into reverse
Is anti-matter really out there?
And, how long can something exist?

What came before the ancient light?
Was it Boze-Einstein Condensate?
Is absolute zero really out there?
And, how long can something exist?

How can something not have a beginning or an end?
How can something not have a beginning or an end?
How can something never end?
How can something never end?
Track Name: Lazy Crown
It's weird to me when you sing in that register
Don't look at me in that tone of voice
We all know now just where the money went
We'll be fine cause we're growing old
growin'…

You reveal your motive now
And, you wear that lazy crown
We hope for better days
While we try to settle down

And, we laugh without saying anything
And, we see without opening our eyes
And, we grey when you wear that lazy crown

…………………….after the sun goes down
It's hard to say just when the whistle blows
But, when the fall is bathed in light
We'll dwell inside cause it's growing cold

And, you promise things of gold
And, you wear that lazy crown
I was always looking up
Cause I thought the sun would burn out,
burn out, burn out

And, we laugh without saying anything
And, we see without opening our eyes
And, we grey when you wear that lazy crown

We settled in the shade…
(leaves blow around)

You reveal your motive now
And, you wear that lazy crown
We hope for better days
While we try to settle down

And, we laugh without saying anything
And, we see without opening our eyes
And, we grey when you wear that lazy crown
Track Name: Overlands
The bare bulb is much too bright for me
The walls are white which makes it hard to see
The lack of holes in the wall are not enough
To keep my mind from wandering outside

The parking lot was empty at the time
I traced the lines to find my only ride
It didn't go exactly as I planned
I'll take my chances traveling over land
I'll take my chances traveling over land
Track Name: '80s Culture Shock
Your world is so small
When you're 13 years old
Lost in the hall
On the first day of school

And, the burnouts ruled
So you stayed out of their way
And, it sounds so strange
To even say it today
YET

There was a time when
Burnouts were cool
There was a time when
They could smoke outside of school

When Eddie lived
And Iron Man ruled
In '86 we were
Culturally askew

And, I thought they might
Take you away from me
When I saw you hanging out
With the wrong crowd in the street

What else can I say?
I was young and afraid.
It still sounds so strange
To even say it today.

There was a time when
Burnouts were cool
There was a time when
They could smoke outside of school

When Eddie lived
And Iron Man ruled
In '86 we were
Culturally askew

There was a time when
Burnouts was cool
There was a time when
They could smoke outside of school

When Eddie lived
And Iron Man ruled
In '86 we were
Culturally askew

The leather denim crowd
Really was the tops.
You wanna find 'em
Well… they hang in parking lots.

Their hair was long in back
And short up on top.
Straight out of metal shop
It's 80's culture shock!
Track Name: The Strobe
When we all fall down
Brown ashes spread 'round
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?

When we all fall down
Brown ashes spread 'round
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?

We burrow under the stairs
And wait for the light to come out
It may take a lifetime or two
Then we'll head back above the ground

We'll live our lives off the land
While waiting for the sun to burn out
We built this all by hand
And one day we'll watch it come down

We burrow under the stairs
And wait for the light to come out
It may take a lifetime or two
Then we'll head back above the ground

We'll live our lives off the land
While waiting for the sun to burn out
We built this all by hand
And one day we'll watch it come down

When we all fall down
Brown ashes spread 'round
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Will we rise up?
Or, will we fall down?
Track Name: A Little Too Late
Wait… Is this a little too classic rock?
Is this a little too Search for Spock?
And, a little too late

Wait… Is this a little too Rolling Stones?
But not enough Brian Jones?
And, a little too late

Wait… Just a little too easy
Just a little too easy
And, a lot too late.
