Track Name: Related (Feat. Mike Rempel)
I was one in seven billion, searching for my family
now you've come, innocent love
my ears can hear, my eyes can see

we are related, we're arm in arm, we are unarmed
we are related, we're arm in arm in arm

this whole world is turning all the time
a revolution everyday
in the sun, innocent blood is drying on the ground of it

I am following the older horses
they know the way back home
all eyes on the king
I don't know how he's holding on

is it love or pandemonium
calling us into the street
I am one in seven billion
I have no nationality
Track Name: Story (Feat. Paul Livingstone)
there you stand with a ring in your hand
days I've spent rehearsing this moment

will you share my story now?

all my plans on your answer depend
will I spend forever in this moment?

a diamond and a white golden band
dress your hand like a star on the desert
Track Name: Lay Your Hands (Feat. Mike Rempel)
circling birds
pulling salt water air
tuck me in
to a blanket of sand and wind

broken water, sons and daughters, only mothers know
broken water, everybody comes the way they go

we see through
we are passing through each other
everybody's blood is blue
beneath the skin's cover

lay your hands in the water again
Track Name: Under the Water
deep call unto my deep
out of the fallow, into the sea
storm rising to the east
walked on the water and lost my feet

under the water again

hallowed be the shallow shore
song of a siren that called me forth
a love song so powerful
pulling me into the undertow

love come over me and under my skin
love come over me again
Track Name: Queen of the Temps
make it in the red and then you mix it in the medicine
down, she's down, she did it on the ritalin
denying the past and letting them all go out and in
she's down, she's out, she met him in the red can

can you keep a secret? she knows cubicle karate
she's down, she's up, she really doesn't need a hand
she'll make it far rubbing her belly, patting her head
she's down, she's out, she's getting on the road again

woman we're going and rolling in the hell of it
you walk into the room and nobody sees the elephant
she ties him to a string and then you get her on the ritalin
she's up, she's down, she never had a real dad

now can you remember back in the day when they called you red?
check out senator mccarthy, he's smoking on a cigarette
girl on the phone, queen of the temps, she is a hero
she's up, she's down, she's on the road again

take a chance
take a chance
she spin round because the world is round

she never was her mama's type
her daddy left when she was still inside
her eyes are like true blue sky
she'll make a gentleman out of a ferrel child
she makes it up along the way
she's on the run 'til her dying day
Track Name: Mary Can Dream
wish upon a satellite
heaven feels so real tonight
between the stars and ocean floor
Mary dreams of having more

we are freaks who have been set free by you

Mary dreams in silver screens
projecting out for all to see
in the temple, upon the stage
Mary can dream in Jesus' place
Track Name: Candles
all of the money is gone
your mom and daddy were wrong
all of the children play on
and all the money is gone

all of her springtime is gone
all of those magazines were wrong
her love remains so strong
and all her springtime is gone
Track Name: ICU
I do see you like I see the moon from where I'm standing
staring through the clouds, you kiss the world so softly

lullaby to help me sleep
to help me understand a moth that flies to reach the moon
from where I'm standing

there's a forest fire inside my chicken wired heart
that started from a tiny voice, a tiny prayer
Track Name: Heart of the Sun
before I grow into a man
I have an ingenious plan
I'll build me a spaceship for one
I'll fly to the heart of the sun

shadows falling and calling the stars
far as I can see
shadows falling on all of the hearts
far as I can see

before I forget who I am
I'll love you like nobody can
oh darling, don't cry for me, love
I'm off to the heart of the sun

I'm seeing your face in the fire
I'm shedding my skin on the pyre
all cycles end up where begun
so I to the heart of the sun
so I to the heart of the sun
