Track Name: Remember the Living
One time at the service I was stricken
Tears poured out, but didn't stream for long
I thought I would remember the living
Drink you in because you're already gone

The moon is there for us, the ocean is warm
Lights are flashing in the distant dark
Let's let go and float into the unseen
Wonder will return, we'll smile again
Track Name: Are You Always Close?
Is your nervousness an indication that you're close
That you're always close to answering
The call that makes you steal away into the night
and leaves her sleeping there?
No one else on the road, do you feel free?
Like you're driving toward everything that you need
What else are you racked with when you're out there?

Go on home

You say you can't relate because we won't understand
But you never gave an honest try
You cop out and your complacency, it made us weak
You put your strength in doubting
If you want to get well, I hope you do
If you want to give up, I won't argue
It's like you're close to knowing just what you might do

Why don't you go on home?
You know you want to
Track Name: Nightmares, Nightmares
Once before, slumbers sweet, once before, repose
Nightmares in, nightmares out
Breathless babies unattended here, and the moon is full
Daytime images of horrors that can't be explained in full

Nightmares up, nightmares down, opiates for your college town
Mountain waters brushed with fog
Early mornings while you wonder what you're doing there
You know you can open up the box with my sympathetic ear inside

Dinner parties in your deep brown eyes, teeth stained purple in your jagged mouth
I know I don't know you
Keep me far away, and you'll continue to play my muse
Bring me in close and show me what "nightmares, nightmares" is
Track Name: Silence Is
Let the world sing
You're mesmerized as the rain patters down
The thunder is far off
Then you speak
To fill a space
When words just dishonor this peace

At the canyon cliff, I want to go down in
And kick the rocks around and lose track of time
We can roll around and get dirt on our skin
We'll dig so deep we'll never find the surface
The sky will rumble and we'll look up at it
As it opens up and rushes in a flood
The force of it will lift us from the ground
And wash us to a place that we cannot imagine
Track Name: Go Ahead and Get Gone
Well, I cut so loose
That I never could quite tighten up again
When my time arrives
I'll raise my glass and go into that good night

I want a girl that smiles
When she sees the tempest that I have within
Because she too has a storm
And we'll make love while the lightening burns us up

We could have had
Such a damned good time together
Yes, I said
It's beautiful to picture it that way

Go ahead and get gone
Track Name: Sounds into Eternity
You have paved a way for me
And you showed me what this world can be
I don't want to step on toes, no
Or live in shadows

There is an infinity for us
Sounds into eternity
But we are going to meet somewhere, where?
We speak with the same tongue

Orders, numbers
Concepts, mathematics
Forever, let me be

I've loved our time together
Face it, you're a part of me
Forever, let me be
Track Name: Thinkers v. Doers
It's commonplace
To not transcend
This comfort
For what could be greatness

But is there fault
In sitting here
For what could be greatness?

Why would you shut yourself down
Before you can turn on?

A flash of faith
A punch of dread
Waging on
Is there room for it all?

I can, I will see this through
I can't, I won't see this through
Thinkers, doers, see this through
