Track Name: Cotta Sound
I'm walking the long way
It's a choice that I have made
Through the hell of my creation
Burned by fires intended
to burn inside of you.

Cotta Sound
Cotta Sound
With the setting sun
illuminating no one.

How quickly this trip ended
How the morning's come and gone
And the more I think about it
The darker I become

Still benched upon an island
Still trying to fool someone
Still hoping she's believing
While I'm missing all the pieces
and claiming that I'm one

Cotta Sound
Cotta Sound
With the setting sun
illuminating no one
With the setting sun
illuminating no one
With the setting sun
illuminating no one..
Track Name: The Grassy Sea
I guess I'm over the
hill this time all of the
grasses grow on this side
and they're green, mama
green, mama

Come with me over the
grassy sea into the
big cloud sky diving so
deep and flying higher
and kinder in time, whoa
you and me
finally
together in forever

ooh, i don't know
ooh, why it rained so very long
ooh, i love you
ooh, whether the weather's nice
the moment's right

you'll go over the
hill in time all of your
burns and blues will
follow you there
but they'll be light as air, mama

come with me over the
grassy sea under her
moonbright eyes into his
big brown arms and
see what it's like oh
you and me
finally
together, in forever
Track Name: Cranes
Now baby if you're
on time if you're
on time
well don't be a stranger
just give me that hard line
that cold truth
and let me go.

Babe, you've got a hot head
and a hard nose
but don't be so stubborn
just pour yourself a hot bath
take off your clothes
and let it go.

'Cos I gotta move
oh you're blockin' my view
I've got all this time that
should be eaten up.

Now baby if you're
tryna hide
tryin' to hide
there's no place to go
I see you in the sunrise,
the night sky when
the moon is full.

Baby with my eyes closed
with my eyes closed
I see the sound of love
it's only in my head though
when my heart's open
just enough.
Track Name: Roots And Hands
There's a rusty nail
In an old dirt lot
Where the barefeet boys
run in circles,
running down and out
of time.

With a wink of an eye,
as the sun went down,
mama sang to me
with her hand so gently
pouring hot water
over tea.

I hold my hand
From way back then
Form growing cold.

It's a song
stuck in my head
It's a long, song
at the wrong time.

It's a long way back
it's the fool in me
Looking down the street
for a glimpse of what
used to be
through eyes that
used to see.

If the wind don't blow,
then my eyes won't dry.
And my head won't know
what my heart knows,
when I,
cry while others
smile and sleep.

I hold my hand
From way back then
Form growing cold.

It's a song
stuck in my head
It's a long, song
at the wrong time.
Track Name: Cob Web Ocean
Hey, you know me--
I'm a cob web stickin'
like a sore thumb--
on the highway, lookin' for a
ride, back in time--
on the wings of the north wind.
Oh, how she blows--
how'd she know I'd be coming
back home?

One, that's you and me--
in a dream, we're together and
Two, yesterday--
in a cold car, staring at the man
on the moon--
I almost kissed you some hundred times.
Three nights, I'm yours--
I'm an ocean, I'm what you're looking for.
Track Name: Time Can't Stop Me
I'm on time
Time can't stop me
touching your hands
Easy flying
right beside me
you're in my head
Looking on
the people kindly
I can't help but
forget...

Lucky girl
what's your secret?
She said, “I don't own shit!”
Holy ghost, will I break even?
He said, “Hell if I know!”
Sunny sky,
teach me how to
make a new day
shine...

while there's still time.

To live this life
with open heart,
I'll try,
and where you're meant to go
this time,
How do you know?

I'm on time
Time can't stop me from
touching your hands
I'm on time
Time can't stop me from
touching your hands
I'm on time
Time can't stop me from
touching your hands.
Track Name: The Silent Heart
The wind of your heart
carried me
on a breeze
so far away
through the trees
to the sun
to the stars
oh carry me
all the way
to the place
where we started

Going to the river
to wade in the water
Going to the mountain
to merge with the silent heart

The night
of my heart
isn't dark,
for your light is
close at hand
look at me
with your soul
through your eyes
and you understand
who I am
who we are
when we leave
our shells

Going to the river
to wade in the water
Going to the mountain
to merge with the silent heart
