Found 04:29
Thought I lost myself Found my way The distance that I fell Jagged terrain Fracture up ahead Along my way As I gaze out from the canyon Shadow on the plain I found life Brimming forth Found life Steering course Found life A fringe explored Found life On the killing floor Found
2.
Mainsail 04:44
Could you recognize my face? In a crowded room, I wait. Living in the Empire State I'm lost sometimes Are we gonna make our escape? The open blue awaits Set a course around the cape I long for life Now lean forth, relax I'll raise the mainsail on the mast The sun cascades on my back It casts your shadow on the map I don't have the time to waste It’s time we get on our way We sailed into a tidal break I steer as well as I can We came across an island chain Aquamarine, you won't fade to grey Living like I own my fate Swing to the island On the way down On the coastline We can sail away out From the dull life we live On the way down On the coastline We can sail away out On the gulf side we will Find' a way out of my head for the weekend Trim the sail out, feel the port-side leaning A hand on the water, head in the sky Come first light Sail out

Shelter Cove 04:25
Follow down to the riverbend I know the way Gun it now through the wilderness Open out, Pacific bay The silence We’ll find it An hour away Arriving Behind me All quiet on the Palisade Should I dive in? Will I sink or swim Am I reborn? Do I move forth? Thunder out on the other end A violent rain Comin’ down right overhead Covered now under the overhang The silence We'll find it In our hideaway The fog lifts Beyond us Open out Pacific bay If it takes me a lifetime…. Holding back, get on track… Don’t know how it ends… Bottle it up inside of me….

Livin' 05:07 video
Honestly, I can't keep my head up high Honestly, I can't get a hold on life You say "What ‘cha wanna do man, will ya go far?" I say "How do you know who you really are?" Tell me what it's all about Livin' like you know yourself Fake it 'til you make it right Climbing to a new height Everybody's growin' up Wonder how I've ended up Wonder if I gave myself enough time I'm livin' my own life I'm livin' my own life I don't care how I get mine I'm livin' my own life I keep my eyes to the sky like anyone else I keep my nose to the grindstone workin’ myself I put my hands to the fire and swallow my pride I keep my deepest desires on an anchor line The vines close in As I dredge through the mire The floodlights dim As the trail climbs higher now I await for the slightest touch of asylum

Cannonball 04:30
Your river flows down Through the canyon seam Run down the highlands Flow through me I found you hanging on to that tree A hollowed out fallen log I know that I would reach for you Would you reach for me? Your river is rising Flowing, silent Reach for you Would you reach for me? Your river is rising Who can I run to? Who can I see? I see you go right to the edge Diving off the rock Hear the gulls flying overhead I can’t go on Are you with me? I go my own way Are you with me? Can’t keep up Are you with me? I go my own way Are you with me? Gone too far Cannonball Right into abyss Are you with me? Will you follow me in? Cannonball Right into the mist Are you with me? Will you let me in? Who could I run to? Who can I see? I see you running up ahead I try to keep up Feel the silence of the forest I come undone

My Canopy 04:34
Wake up to a new day Listen to the banyan sway Waiting for the summer rain To fall on high Gaze upon the open plain Feel it in the heart of me Looking for the ghost you left behind How could you go away? How could you end me? How could you fall away into the night? I can recover then I can be anything I can be anyone that you'd like Fly down into the forest Climb out to my canopy Fly down into the forest I'll wait for you there I'm hanging on a line Cascading into light Far beneath southern skies Swing through life on a vine Lying in the sun rays Peaking through the forest shade Didn’t seem to notice me wandering by Looking for a quiet place To put my head on straight Deep in the hollow there My colors ran dry Fly down into the forest Climb down you can follow me Fly down into my forest I’ll wait for you there I’m on fire-watch I see the fire on the plain I’m on fire-watch I see the colors of your flame
7.
Swing 04:40
You swing from the branches Run through your house I can barely keep up As the darkness surrounds you Friend of mine, where do you run to now? Can I try to bring you back somehow? Are you damaged just like me? I see right through your scheme Like a game of hide and seek If I find you will you find me? I’m a gull with a broken wing Forgive me for saying those things Fall away with my broken dreams Do you still think I’m in too deep? You swing from the branches Run through your house I can barely keep up As the darkness surrounds you Friend of mine where do you run to now? Can I try to bring you back somehow? You fall through the crevice Reach for the sky I can barely hold on As you hang off the side It’s funny how things pan out sometimes I’ll keep hangin’ on the other side of life When I swing high I hit the ground on my own two feet Friend of mine, how do you swim so deep? Measure my dive as I follow your lead

Checking Out 05:07
City life is not quite like it used to be Seven years have come and gone The walls are closing in on me Afraid to fall away in anonymity Do I wanna lay an anchor oceanside? Or drift about the open sea? The years that I’ve put down Opening doors, running around How many years have I put down? About time to be checking out The years that I’ve put down Opening doors, running around I feel it coming now On the horizon Find me Far away from here Run free Fly away with me Sometimes I feel like everybody’s out for me Try to navigate through all the cars and lights And grin through all the vanity A complicated hive of faded industry Do I wanna stick it out and waste my time? And fade into infinity? The years that I’ve put down Opening doors, running around How many years have I put down? About time to be checking out The years that I’ve put down How many more are coming around? I wanna feel the sunlight now On the horizon In the evening light As the day subsides I lie awake in bed And wonder if I’ll make it out alive In Pacific time Would I lose my mind? I wonder what I’m gonna take away And what I’m gonna find I’m running around, around, around, around again

Pyre 04:22
One out of ten Millions of people Beginning, end Falling by the wayside Am I one of them? Over my head "Take it one step at a time," they said None of this really matters Even I know that I’m on fire Flames surround In a burning pyre They’ll break me down I’m on fire Flames surround Break me down Break me down When the trees all die and Their leaves fall down I wanna find out I wanna find out I can breath a sigh of relief Out loud I wanna find out I wanna find out In the spring we’ll hide When the rains come down I wanna find out I wanna find out I can breath a sigh of relief Out loud I wanna find out I wanna find out Hold my breath Bending over backwards Start again Complicated patterns Am I all there? Count to ten Feel I’m fallin’ faster A bitter end Beautiful disaster My glass is overflowing
10.
How could I afford to lose my grip? Clung to this fickle world that I live in Fantasize about a place I've never been When I open up my eyes I’m back again You and I move through life on a different route Comes down to the paths we pursue Realize that it takes time to see things through What’s the point of living high without a view? I long for the gold sunrise Paradise lost On the bright dawn I wanna stay up all night Paradise lost How I long for life I climb to the top of the tallest tree To see if the clouds will open up to me Looking out I see your boat pass through the bay Coming closer now, I lie in wait You and I sing through life in a different tune But the melody’s the same the whole way through In your eyes I see the sky, a Pacific blue What's the point of living high without a view? I long for the gold sunrise Paradise lost On the bright dawn I wanna stay up all night Paradise lost How I long for life
