Track Name: Belief
Is it alright to lie just to make someone feel good
Is it alright to steal if you’re starving
Is it alright to kill to protect all your loved ones
Is it alright to die if you’re suffering

Belief belief belief is a dangerous thing
Belief belief belief has given me wings
Release release release is the thing we all crave
Belief belief belief has the power to save

I would never challenge the beliefs that you hold true
Because you are a part of me and I’m a part of you
But i can feel the sliver driven deep into my eye
To see you use your own beliefs for making people cry

Belief belief belief can destroy someone’s life
Belief belief belief can grow heavy with time
And grief grief grief
May be all that you have you have
But belief belief belief can make good out of bad

Sometimes I have to question the contraption of free will
It leads a man to love and sends another one to kill
And everybody wonders if there’s justice in the end
But would you reach a hand out
If the killer was your friend

Belief belief belief lifts us up when we fall
Belief belief belief may be the death of us all
And peace and peace and peace
May not come in our time
Belief belief belief
Is a ladder to climb

Is it alright to lie just to make someone feel good
Is it alright to steal if you’re starving
Is it alright to kill to protect all your loved ones
Is it alright to die if you’re suffering
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
Sunday morning
Sun is warming
The locks of your golden hair
Tide is creeping
And dear your sleeping
Out in the morning air
But you were tossing
You were turning
Nightmares upon your face
You were shaking
You were waking
What made you so afraid

Close your eyes
Child
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Child
Close your eyes

Sunday morning
Sun is warming
The locks of your golden hair
Tide is creeping
And dear your sleeping
Out in the morning air
But you were tossing
You were turning
Nightmares upon your face
You were shaking
You were waking
What made you so afraid

Close your eyes
Child
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Child
Close your eyes
Track Name: Call it Luck
Lost my car my job apartment and began to run amok
Lost my sanity and finally my girlfriend got fed up
So i ended up on the freeway playing chicken with a truck
‘till a pair of nice policemen came along and picked me up
Before i was struck

Went to Ireland stopped taking all my pills and i gave up
Smoking too much hash i lost myself again and i got stuck
I was sent to an asylum hearing voices in lockup
And when i tried to resist i was straight jacketed and struck
Call it luck

I remember hearing Hitler laugh as i knelt down to pray
I remember hearing Jesus say he could not heal my pain
I remember Satan saying i would never get away
I remember when god told me she was actually insane
All in my brain

For sixteen weeks i did not speak I'd nothing left to say
I remember some experiences i cannot convey
I remember how the universe was all about decay
I kept searching in my mind i hoped I'd find a passageway
To being okay

Now it has been three years and things are finally looking up
I have my sanity my dignity my music and no crutch
I've never been so centered with no signs of cracking up
After being so far away so long I'm finally in touch
Call it luck
Track Name: If You Can Help Me
I can’t get to sleep again
Something’s melted on my brain
I don't know where it has been
Help me if you can help me

I keep waking in the night
I know everything’s alright
But i feel so damn uptight
Help me if you can help me

I cant wake up from this dream
I want to but cannot scream
Something’s wrong with my bloodstream
Help me of you can help me

I can’t get to sleep again
Something’s melted on my brain
I don't know where it has been
Help me if you can help me

I keep waking in the night
I know everything’s alright
But i feel so damn uptight
Help me if you can help me

I cant wake up from this dream
I want to but cannot scream
Something’s wrong with my bloodstream
Help me of you can help me
Track Name: Heart Attack
My neighbor’s dog died
There was nothing they could do
It happens every day
It was all he had left
There was nothing he could do
It gave him a heart attack

Please god don’t let it end this way
Don’t ever let it end
Please god don't take my life away
Please god don't kill my friends

Please god don’t let it end this way
Don’t ever let it end
Please god don't take my life away
Please god don't kill my friends

It was all he had left
There was nothing he could do
It gave him a heart attack
Track Name: Merry Go Round
Something of us floats in the ether
Our bodies grow up from the ground
And for awhile they live together
One day it leaves without a sound

We all ride on the merry go round
Every time we are someone new
Just who there is no way of knowing
You may be me and I may be you

We may be something else altogether
Every time we are made again
We may be nothing but the dreamer
And the dream about some little men

And in the end we may may be nothing
Or everything alive as one
We all ride on the merry go round
And i don't think that we're ever done

We all ride on the merry go round
(We all ride on)
We all ride on the merry go round
(We all ride on)
We all ride on the merry go round
(We all ride on)
We all ride on the merry go round
(We all ride on)
Track Name: Anamnesis
Haven't I seen this place before
Maybe I'm dreaming I'm never sure
Sometimes my dreams are unfamiliar
Didn't I know you once before
I can't remember anymore
It feels like I've known you forever

As we drift from plane to plane
And brain to brain
Although I can't recall your name
I know I'll love you all the same
And when we finally awaken
From this dream
I will be you and you will be me
And all the dreamers will be free

Haven't I seen this place before
Maybe I'm dreaming I'm never sure
Sometimes my dreams are unfamiliar
Didn't I know you once before
I can't remember anymore
It feels like I've known you forever

As we drift from plane to plane
And brain to brain
Although I can't recall your name
I know I'll love you all the same
And when we finally awaken
From this dream
I will be you and you will be me
And all the dreamers will be free
Track Name: Nothing Can Kill Me
Nothing can kill me
Until I die
I've got that ace in the hole
In my pocket by my side
Then I'll fly away
For some pie in the sky
But nothing can kill me
Until I die

Nothing can kill me
Until I die
I've got that ace in the hole
In my pocket by my side
Then I'll fly away
For some pie in the sky
But nothing can kill me
Until I die
Track Name: Everything Was Once a Cloud
Everything was once a ray of sunlight
And everything was once a cloud
Energy can never be expended
And no exceptions are allowed
Everything was once a drop of water
It all was once a grain of sand
Everything contains the golden spiral
Twisted like genetic strands

Everything in life is but a fractal
Branches and fingers roots and toes
All matter is infinitely recursive
There’s no end to how deep it goes
Every molecule is always living
And all that lived is still alive
Existence is a gift that keeps on giving
No need to struggle to survive

Everything was once a ray of sunlight
And everything was once a cloud
Energy can never be expended
And no exceptions are allowed
Everything was once a drop of water
It all was once a grain of sand
Everything contains the golden spiral
Twisted like genetic strands

You were once a field of blooming daisies
And you were once a dying bird
Try to comprehend just how amazing
Try to imagine how absurd
Track Name: Bluest of the Blue
She's been a long time a-comin'
But she's finally hit the scene
You can label her an act of god honey
But don't you call her mean
So if you lose your condo
And your city's swept away
Be grateful that there's someone there
To sweep up the decay

Grandma ocean oh, she's always got a job to do
Grandma ocean
And she's washing right over you
Grandma ocean she's the bluest of the blue
Through and through

Well the tides are a-turnin'
And returnin' us to her womb
There are seashells on the mountaintops honey
Swept up there by her broom
So when she floods your mini-mall
And knocks on your front door
Invite her in to stay a spell
She's takin' back the shore

Grandma ocean oh, she's always got a job to do
Grandma ocean
And she's washing right over you
Grandma ocean she's the bluest of the blue
Through and through

The bluest of the blue
The bluest of the blue
The bluest of the bluest of the blue
The bluest of the blue
The bluest of the bluest of the blue
The bluest of the blue
The bluest of the bluest of the blue
The bluest of the blue
The bluest of the bluest of the blue
