Track Name: Hypnotic Western
The moment now broken
dreamers glance around
a feeling hypnotic
lost Mary goes round

The smoke disappears
and so ends the ride
a waist now empty
once a hand did find

A sway in the wind
the smoke comes again
the sweet cliffs beckon
my feet to the shore

Great western beauty
In the garden of my mind
the summer will bring
great mystery and joy

A catcher of dreams holds us now
above your pillow
relinquished in the desert drift
I explore the sea of sand

The face the hips
your eyes and lips
the skin now uncovered
invokes great wonder

Of green in blue,
blue in grey
a different place to go,
or stay?

Great western beauty
In the garden of my mind
the summer will bring
great mystery and joy

Track Name: Howl
Careful quiet child
the wind is on your back
he runs in light beside you
unaware of his track
a careful wolf
howls alone
in a reality unchained
while you run and dance
and lose your way
across the crowded lane

White beaches, slim reaches
like when I'm reaching for your bones
When we're all alone in the night

A kaleidoscope of color
but you are not there
only red shapes and visions
fill my mind, and
we kiss to pass the time
we kiss to pass the time

Careful quiet child
the wind is on your back
he runs in light beside you
unaware of his track
a careful wolf
howls alone
in a reality unchained
while you run and dance
and lose your way
across the crowded lane

White beaches, slim reaches
like when I'm reaching for your bones
When we're all alone in the night
Track Name: Water Lovers
A break in the surface
A breath of fresh air
Two lovers in the water
Moonlight in their hair

I will sing my way to you
I will sing my way back home

Question the wind that blows you away
Question the wind that blows you astray

Your love makes you free
Your love makes you free

Running around in circles inside our skulls
While freedom hangs about us in the air
In between the silence
My fingers in your hair

We walk back to the madness
but for a moment
so close - a dream, a dream, a dream

The doors of golden boy
Show you everything
and expel you into the night

Question the wind that blows you away
Question the wind that blows you astray
Track Name: Awaiting Sea
I. Awaiting Sea

I’ve been sitting on the coast
awaiting sea
and I’ll wait and see
will you come to me
will you meet me on the sand
help me understand

what have i waited for
but you
so beautiful so blue

an island my man
love takes a stand
to find truth in you
to find truth in me

wont you take me to the tide
the coast is calling us
young wanderers of the night
young wanderers of the night

has anyone ever told you
you’re beautiful and free?
wont you be, just be
a little more, a little less

We don’t know where we go.
We lose all conception of time,
with only the light of the sun
to tell us what time of day we are

c’est le vie, la belle vie

II. Topanga Breeze

Did I call you brother
Did I call you friend
maybe I called you lover
before the day did end

So we spent some time together
beneath the Fernwood Trees
We played our favorite records
and felt the Topanga Breeze,
Topanga Breeze Topanga Please

Did you call me sister
I saw you standing there
You said you look so peaceful
just lying there
just lying there
just lying there

Fernwood Trees
Topanga Breeze
Track Name: Burn it All
I thought I’d go rejoin the ramblin wind
Instead I flew to the city to join in on a life of sin
Maybe I'll hit the road again
All my dreams are changing friend

I left home one, two, three, or eight times
and every time just like the time before
I awoke to fall asleep again
Do I wake to fall?
Could I keep singing right
or would I just burn it all?

All I ever wanted
was to fall back in-to your arms
but the ship has long sailed on us lover
and I don’t even know you anymore

The truth is I’m a terrible lover
because I just want more and more
when there ain’t nothing left to uncover... ∆
Track Name: Promise of the Sun
There's a catcher of dreams on the highway
You say you just want to touch her
Weaving dreams through her hair

I know what I have seen
What she recalls to her waking dream

Run around in the promise
of the sun

And love, there's always love
It's what i’m always dreaming of
deep in the night

Have I come to know you
or did I only show you
a very small piece of my heart

Has it come to change you?
Did it go somewhere it shouldn't have gone,?
No, never
Never fear the depths of two as one

Run around in the promise
of the sun

The only brightness visible to the naked edge
I've got love on the darkest of days

Run around, run around, run around
in the promise of the
sun
Track Name: Meadow Dreams
I.
When I went out walking
I saw upon the ground a friend
Faith or will
I do find in my hand
but where to fly?
Your treasures you do spread across the land
Your treasures you once spread across my hands

But I don't see. How could I see.
That every little piece of you is me
When I go away, all that’s left of you
are flowers in the sky
You run upon the hill
But why, but why?
What will the spring bring?
The cactus blooms, but your thorns are still kept
All I ever wanted was to explore the depths.
You wanna go? Just let me know Noel.

II.
Has it come to this
We enter the hall
You tumble and fall
Strange kingdom of pleasure and color
The earth is dry, but she is wet
Meadow dreams come inside
and when you're done run and hide
Does it taste as sweet
as the place where where green hills meet...milky thighs
Many lifetimes many muses
spent running from the muse within
Oh, what a sin.
Patterns change and then you die
Patterns change you realize
Ephemeral wonder
The kingdom rise
what once disguised
gentle beams of light upon your bones
and what could not grow into the silent dream.
What you feel horizon reveals
The truth that you ignored must now breathe
Confusion fills pleasure
Lovers last a moment
I am tortured not to forget
And what is the whisper,
but the silent songbird’s cry
Come and asking me to give up all my pride
So that he can love
So that we can love
As if the moment will never die
But why, but why?
What will the spring bring?
Track Name: Kon-Tiki
We can have it all
because we got it all-ready
We’ll sail from Peru
across ocean blue, Kon-Tiki

We don't need those silly things
or what they bring
because we believe

The Tigris of Odin lost
a river we can cross
but it won't come easily
Our guardians have set us free

Flying now we change directions
a misconception of where we were
now we see the land
a coral reef, but are we ready
to walk that beach

Counting the waves now
We ride the tide
A crash and we arrive
We are alive

We didn't make it the way we planned
but we’ve fallen and now we stand
because we believed in our hearts
we could make it
just had to start

Kon-tiki
Orange daishiki
We made a fire on the land
We’re hula dancing and romancing
Who needs shoes when we’ve got sand?

I sailed for a 100 days
and nearly lost my way
but just one more sun and we arrived
It just takes one day to come alive

We all see the same stars
No matter where we are
They’ll point us in the right direction
Are you paying attention?

But we’re here now
Be here now
We’re all Kon-Tiki this way
& In the morning we’ll meet the sun
Another beautiful day has begun
Track Name: Grateful Wu
Grateful Wu
Came You
I told you stories
You smile in the dark
I told you stories
and then we were apart

Trapped in the presence of your smile
playful and wild
the voice of a child

Grateful Wu
It brought me to you
It was so long ago
the beginning of the road
It’s all been for you

Things I tried to remember
Things I tried to forget
We sat in the sunrise
I think I cried

Woo, woo, woo
She runs, she runs, she runs
and then she sleeps in my sheets

I think that I have moved on,
but I am still the same
I think that you have gone away,
but your name remains.

Grateful Woo
I long for you
I dream of the road,
the country, and your bed
It all washes away when beside me
rests your hair
Track Name: El Camino {Way of Life}
Come walk the old and young
for change we have sung
but oh what have we done
we walk when we must run

the shells that you carry
they mark you story
you’ll find it at the end
though you've held it all along

you say you have no god
an essence we all feel
are you not your own
creator of the real?

peace peace you find
may you find your peace of mind
though i walk alone
I've got what I need

the stones now left behind
freedom you will find
this journey that you’ve made
to meet a simple truth

the road is long
but you've got your song
you’ve sang it
all along

what was lost if found
two feet on the ground
but my heads up in the clouds
a truth see in your eyes

golden ocean dust
sparkles from the floor
but oh she wants more
to comb it through her hair

the sea inside feels the way you move
will you find your way of life?
Track Name: Medicine
What does it mean to be lost
What does it mean to be found
What does it mean to be free

It's almost like the dreams for us to see
People held them sacred
A group of people find each other

Medicine, Medicine, Meta-sin

It dissolved all the walls
I see you
What's going on behind the scenes?

Let us in Let us in Let us in

Let us sin Let us sin Let us sin

Medicine, Medicine, Meta-sin
Track Name: I See You
We rise we rise
from the ashes
and we fly so far away
Where are we running to anyways?

This time we don't run
we sail, set sail
and the sun shines
and the wind blows
us to the coast

And I see you
you see me
with naked eyes
for the very first time

I feel as though
you already know my name
the way you dance
you got me so good

This song is for all the lovers
making love under the covers
an undercover love
but it’s so plain

If I find myself alone
Or if I find myself with you
Will I remember what I say
Will you remember what we do

This love is freedom and a feeling
I feel it in the music
in your smiles and my soul
Our mission is love and it’s free
