“Wild Imagination”

Rise and shine this morning
Pry my eyes wide open

Sunlight on the water
I am under
Abandoned ship
I need a diver
To pull me up
Into the eye of a hurricane

Sunlight on the surface
In the distance
Must be a mile or two
I’m getting nervous
Gonna bubble up
And take a ride on an innertube

Hey no harm no foul

I’ve got a wild imagination
When I wake up
I’ve got a wild imagination
And I can’t help
Watching and wondering
What the hell went wrong

One time when I was younger
I was put under
The fog was thick
And I surrendered
I still remember when I woke
I said that I would never let the vision go

Yeah

But now that I am older
I have to wonder
Might be a bit beat up
Still a survivor
As long as I’m alive
I’ll put the time aside
To watch the flowers grow

Daydream all day long

I’ve got a wild imagination
When I wake up
I’ve got a wild imagination
And I can’t help
Wishing and worrying
What the hell went wrong

Sunlight is in your eyes
To bring you right home
To bring you back
Sunlight is in your eyes
To bring you back

To bring you back home
To bring you back home
To bring you back home
To bring you back

“Part of the Plan”

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the plan

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the path to peace

I’m gonna take a night
To think it over
I’m gonna take a night
You take one too

Rather than ignite
It might blow over
Gonna take a night
And think it through

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the plan

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the path to peace

We’ll find a way
We’ll find a way
Something’s wrong now
We gotta take it on
We’ll find a way

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the plan

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the path to peace

I’m gonna take a night
To think it over
I’m gonna take a night
You take one too

Rather than ignite
It might blow over
Gonna take a night
And think it through

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the plan

Reason doesn’t appear to be part of the problem
It’s part of the path to peace

“Speak My Mind”

You stood with the wallflowers
Until you knew the dance
You seemed like an outlier
But you had other plans

With a fire in my heart
And a frog in my throat
From talking about a woman

Been running my mouth
In one of my prouder moments
And it feels so nice

Please don’t hide tonight
If I could speak my mind
I might
Please don’t hide tonight
Don’t hide tonight

All of the game players
Playing the game again
Ignore the naysayers
They never play to win

With a spring in my step
And the wind at my back
I’m walking a little taller

I’ve been biding my time
And biting my tongue
I’m talking

And it feels so nice

Please don’t hide tonight
If I could speak my mind
I might
Please don’t hide tonight
Don’t hide tonight

You stood with the wallflowers
Until you knew the dance
You seemed like an outlier
But you had other plans

I’ve been charting my course
And beating down doors
I’m knocking
A little louder

Done raising my guard
And hiding my cards
I’m talking

And it feels so nice

Please don’t hide tonight
If I could speak my mind
I might
Please don’t hide tonight
Don’t hide tonight

“Old News”

The paper beat me home again
Last night is old news
I wanted you to notice but flopped
Now I’m bothered and blue

Last night could have been right
You’re mine tonight
Last night could have been right
You’re mine tonight

The paper boy should stay asleep
And leave me to my dreams
Transported back to life
with a dose of harsh reality

I thought I could read you
I thought I could read you
I suddenly need you
Tomorrow you’ll know

The paper beat me home again
Last night is old news
I waited for the moment but stopped
Too afraid you’d refuse

Last night could have been right
You’re mine tonight
Last night could have been right
You’re mine tonight

The paper boy should stay asleep
And leave me to my dreams
Transported back to life
with a dose of harsh reality

I thought I could read you
I thought I could read you
I suddenly need you
Tomorrow you’ll know

“Will It To Happen”

Some day I’ll learn and I’ll tutor you
Some heads might turn at the sight of you

What you want to believe might be untrue
Don’t let it fool you
May be breaking down but you got the glue
What’s it to you
What’s it to you now

Some day I’ll learn and I’ll tutor you
Some heads might turn at the sight of you

What do you want – something to prove
Look who’s talking to you
What do you want – something to prove
What’s it to you
What’s it to you now

I thought that heaven
Would be bound by your embrace
Will it to happen
It falls into place

Some day I’ll learn
Some day I’ll learn
Some day I’ll learn and I’ll tutor you
Some heads might turn at the sight of you

If you want the means of a millionaire
Hope you get your share
If you want to watch the world from an easy chair
Hope you got a spare
If you want someone beside you for all your years
I’ll be there
I’ll be there
I’ll be there

I thought that heaven
Would be bound by your embrace
Will it to happen
It falls into place

“Back to the Start”

How I wanted to realize
And break down barriers between us wide open
And how I tried to walk away
When I fell short

Ignoring warnings
So obvious to see
As oscillating lights and a siren
As isolating words got in the way

We’ve been around before
We plodded out and stumbled onward
Now back to the start

We’ve been around before
We drifted off and wandered backward
Right back to the start
Right back to the start

How I wanted to minimize the weight
Assume the heavy load that you carry
And how I tried to stick around
Until I got lost

Cutting corners
And circling the square
To lift the albatross from your shoulders
It left me at a loss when I fell down

We’ve been around before
We plodded out and stumbled onward
Now back to the start

We’ve been around before
We drifted off and spiraled downward
Right back to the start
Right back to the start
Right back to the start

“Cringe”

Give me everything you got
And then go away
No forget-me-nots
No regrets
No complaints

Motels
Restaurants
After hours in the parking lot
After hours in the parking lot

Headlights
She figured out
Flipped out and she broke it off
She flipped out and she broke it off

There’s something about you
There’s something about you
Makes me wanna get you lost

There’s something about you
There’s something about you
Makes me wanna shake you off
And cringe

The phone calls
The paperwork
The fireworks in the front yard

For the lawyers
They sell it off
A boat of lies and a house of cards
A boat of lies and a house of cards

There’s something about you
There’s something about you
Makes me wanna get you lost

There’s something about you
There’s something about you
Makes me wanna shake you off
And cringe

Give me everything you got
And then go away
No forget-me-nots
No regrets
No complaints

There’s something about you
There’s something about you
Makes me wanna get you lost

There’s something about you
There’s something about you
Makes me wanna shake you off
And cringe

“Launching A Satellite”

Caught in a cloud
One engine out
All of my insight turned into doubt

Put your mind on a carpet ride
And a hand on the wheel
It’s your call
Will you take the fall or fly

Tethered together
Forever linked
Points on a curve
Always in sync
Always I think

Forever linked for all I know
Without a heart a heads a joke
Look out below

Put your mind on a carpet ride
And a hand on the wheel
It’s your call
Will you take the fall or fly

Launching a satellite
Building a boom
Shuttling everyone to the moon
To the moon
To the moon

Caught in a cloud
Launching a satellite
Staring you down
Launching a satellite

Caught in a cloud
Launching a satellite
Staring you down
Launching a satellite
Satellite

“Panacea”

Someone to show
Someone to tell where to go
Someone to scold
Someone to fight all my foes

A pick-me-up
Won’t let me down
Won’t throw me out of place without
Disgraced again

Someone to save
Someone to take all my time
Someone to shield
Someone to steal all my lines

A pick-me-up
Won’t let me down
Won’t throw me out of place without
Disgraced again

A sitting duck
Still looking up
For a twist of mind over matter

Someone to sweep all my mines

A pick-me-up
Won’t let me down
Won’t throw me out of place without
Disgraced again

A sitting duck [I’m not surprised]
Still looking up [I’m not surprised]
For a twist of mind over matter [Never a doubt about it]

A pick-me-up [I’m not surprised]
A forget-me-not [I’m not surprised]
An antidote [Never a doubt about it]
Panacea

A fatal flaw
A human cannonball
A tide too strong
To turn against

A sliding scale
Imperfect rationale
A tide too strong
To turn against

A star to steer
Me anywhere from here
A tide too strong
To turn against

“Not Insignificant”

Wish I could say that I was there for you
You had your clock cleaned out
As the crowd cleared out

They tripped you up and then left a mark on you
Flipped the bird then fled
As the ground turned red

Too proud to fall
It’s branded right on to my skull
Too true to tell
It’s not insignificant
I can’t get over it

Cleared out your house
And fed the aquarium for you
We got your stuff sold off
Most of your stuff sold off

A video of photographs told the tale about you
We had it all laid out
As it all played out

Too proud to fall
It’s branded right on to my skull
Too true to tell
It’s not insignificant
I can’t get over it
I can’t get over it

Too frightened to follow my heart
Too tired to pull them apart
Too selfish to take a stand
Too boy to be a man
Too boy to be a man
To kick you when you’re down again

You don’t bring it up that I let em whale on you
Skip the part that said
You were left for dead

It don’t seem to bother you that I failed to follow you
Down the dark end lot
Where it all played out

Too proud to fall
It’s branded right on to my skull
Too true to tell
It’s not insignificant
I can’t get over it
I can’t get over it
I can’t get over it
