Track Name: Two
Too far from the nest
To ask such question
How did I
Get stuck on the ground?

When did you first
Get the impression
I would stand strong
While you're fooling around?

Two will not do
Everything I've done
You undo

Two, we'll not see
You make me half
Of what I can be

A seperate living
A foreign equation
We must turn our backs
And be free of the pain

I'm not forgiving
My high expectation
You slipped through the cracks
Now go back to the rain
Track Name: Let Go
What makes us leave
When we don't know where to go?
Was I just there?
Or did I really know?

Let myself breathe
Just relax and let it flow
Why can't I see
What the others seem to know?

Let go, just know
That you won't be coming home
Let know, just go
Oh they won't be coming home

Float yourself free
All the time is good for you
How can it be
That you don't know what to do?

It's just a phase
Just a glaze, a state of mind
Free from the plays
Your new world will seem more kind
Track Name: Unprogrammed
You are not a machine
We're meant for greater things than this
Sad excuse for a life
Walking in the same old lines

Believing the same lies
It's time to open up your eyes

Put the heart back into art
Passion into life
Dance the pain away
In the dark we'll be the light

They will never see
The world that only we have seen
Boring and mundane
They'll complain about the rain

We are not machines
And the rust will not remain

Put the heart back into art
Passion into life
Dance your pain away
In the dark we'll be the light
Track Name: The Reality
I don't like being told
I'm not like I once was
Sorry I don't fit the mould
Seasons change, and everybody does

I say I don't like to live
Pinned down by society
I give what I've got to give
Be it strange, it's what's inside of me

Dreams are the reality
You have to close your eyes to see
Is there ever two the same?
You've got to move to play the game
Track Name: This Is All You Need
This is all you need
This is all you need
This is all you need from me

This is all I am
This is all you get
This is all I can, can give

This is all you need
If you wanna feel better
This is all you need
Feel at home at last

As the story turns
As the story turns
As the story turns, you'll dance

This is all you need
This is all I need
This is all I need from you

This is all you need
If you wanna feel better
This is all you need
Feel at home at last
Track Name: Rock And Roll Is Love
You won't catch the wind
You just don't have control
You won't drown the sound
The sound of my soul

Because rock and roll is love
Rock and roll is love
Rock and roll is love
Rock and roll is love

I give to you everything
That I dream of
Because of you
Everything feels right

I'm holding you like
A red guitar
I'm holding you like
My very own star

Because rock and roll is love
Rock and roll is love
Rock and roll is love
Rock and roll is love
Track Name: Cosmic Love
I love your silent age
The planets can't upstage
What you've made me feel

When at the river's end
You'll be my only friend
And you know it's real

We don't have to hear
What's right or wrong
Live our life in song

Even with nothing to say
We'll feel love in every way
It's cosmic love
Track Name: After All
And after all, you should
Take your chances before the fall

'Cos who knows when it's time
And you've got to change your mind

Make your peace before the door
Please don't waste your love no more

And I hope that you may find
That being loved is not a crime
Track Name: One
Life, it takes so long
So many years and then you're gone
Without one

Love, it gets so rough
When you feel you can't get enough
Without one

Oh without one
You feel that your love is just a gun
And everyone is on the run

But I have found my way
I found my better, brighter day
I found one

I'll always know the reason why
I'll love you past the day I die
We are one

Oh with the one
You feel that your love has just begun
And love that's real will always rise the sun
Track Name: Great Horse
Great Horsey Champer Goldbraid
Pranced proudly
In the garden dithers
With the Sun
Dipped diving with his horned onyx saddle
Shining in the black aped eyeballs
Of the gun

When the great apple falls
She'll be queen of your halls

Tall bowman from the burnt pastures
Saw Champer and he bowed ground kissing
To his lord

Strange beastie from the legend lair Sire,
I can master with the aid of this
Skull powdered cord
Track Name: Suneye
Love you
Oh girl I do
Love you

Come the sun
See it run
Across the sky
Cosmic eye
Is for you
And no one else

Love you
Oh girl I do
Love you

Come the sun
See it run
Across the sky
See it cry
For you
And no one else

Tree wizard puretongue
The digger of holes
The swan king
The Elf lord
The eater of souls
Lithon the black
The rider of stars
Tyrannosaurus Rex
The eater of cars
