Track Name: The Gift
V1
Rising early in the morning
I realize another day is upon me
I have found the strength
To breathe again
Like a long lost friend saved
By the daydreaming
(Falling in love again)
The fallen angels gather
Around my demise
Without a sound of delusion
While drawing light
Out of my darkest surroundings

Chorus
The gift
The calling
The gift of falling
In love again
Falling in love again

V2

Today should never end
Should never have been
While drawing light
Out of my darkness surrounding
My strength is rising
Driven by the tide of longing;
My strength is rising

C2

The gift
The calling
The gift of falling
In love again
Falling in love again


Bridge

Today should never end
Should never have been
While drawing light
Out of my darkness surrounding
My strength is rising
Out of my darkest surrounding

C3/4

Outro
The gift of the morning
The gift
The calling
Track Name: AsIAm
Fountains of insane
From beneath me
Can't you see the pain
Inside the lines
Drawn behind farther
Down beside the time
I cannot find you
I cannot find you
All I've known
I can't believe it's gone
Why can't you see
All that I can believe
Philosophic
Lit up inside
All you've known before
Means nothing
Means nothing anymore
Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Track Name: Ripcord
Ripcord

Am I dreaming?
While wide awake
Is that screaming?
Why not debate the meaning
When we choose two lives
All around us our disguise
You can ill afford
Pull the ripcord

We fight the fires
Till the day
We hold the liars
Beside the nighttime
Cannot inebriate
Enough to forget
You can ill afford
Pull the ripcord

Live the dream to consecrate
Fields a life away
All that discord
All around it’s your fault
You cannot lose all put in
While alone due to euphoria
The ripcord
You can ill afford
Track Name: Crystal
Feeling good
On this bright sunny day
The grass is green and
We’re all out to play
Barbecue, beers on the cooler
The TV’s all alone
A dumb insanity

My baby’s running free
In the streets
Neighborhood party
The party's outside
Under the trees
Lots of friends
Children to feed

It's a new wave
It’s crystal clear to me
Our life, our love
Was meant to be

It’s crystal clear to me
All along you know I love you
My dear it’s crystal clear
Our life our love
Was meant to be
Track Name: Freewill
We apply and justify
All the filters
For us to get by
Along the way
We feel today
Just as passé as is
Another crease in the fabric
Behold all things are static

Be still
My heart
Freewill
Freewill depart

Been so long since I felt this way
Since just yesterday
Given away to the fray
We all fall into decay
I cannot
I will not
I choose not
To believe it

Follow the sounds
In the distance
I cannot feel the resistance
We all know what to do
During the silent time
All alone then I’m near
When I see you
All praise that can be you
I adore and believe in you

My song to your heart
With a sonnet, a strain
I will to a strong refrain
A strong refrain

Be still my heart
Be strong to the end
Be still my heart
For a lifetime
Freewill can shine
Track Name: couldn't sleep
I was up all night
I guess I couldn't get to sleep
I couldn't make things right
your heart was not mine to keep
in the dark night of the soul
it's always 3 A. M.
I have to just let go
and start my life again

I cannot make myself believe
I'll always be alone
a prisoner with no reprieve
waiting by the phone
o what a web we weave
when first we practice to deceive
ourselves

I couldn't sleep
I couldn't sleep
the whole world fell
into the deep
and I was left
left afloat
you didn't even
leave a note

I was up till dawn
you know I couldn't sleep
I know the line was drawn
you know I couldn't sleep
the moving finger writes
and having writ moves on
nor all thy prayer nor wit
shall lure it to come back
nor all thy tears wash out a word of it

I cannot make myself believe
I'll always be alone
a prisoner with no reprieve
waiting by the phone
o what a web we weave
when first we practice to deceive
ourselves
Track Name: From Toledo
Long gentle tide

All over you go

Where childrens light

In the day is leaving tonight

I'm at a loss at my consent

Once the sea gets us all alone

One knows away you'll go

When you're young

What you design…

Follow your light

Why try to stay too long

Our youth is fading

License in time

Rapture away
Track Name: The Happening
V1
You’re not the only girl on the block today
You know I been down this road before
I don’t know if I’ll stay
What you see, what you do
Know it! Gonna take two
I’m here, you’re there, let’s be fair

C1
What else you got?
What you will arrange tonight
Got a ways to be
Where you know it’s happening

V2
Don’t waste time to get all up tight
Baby’s no sense in coming round
You know there’s gonna be a fight
Relax; calm today all’s insane
How you’ll come to see
In words and deeds
It’s all been thrown away

C2
What else you got?
We loved to talk the talk
What a place to be
Where you know it’s happening

C3
What else you got?
We loved to talk the talk
What a place to be
Where you know it’s happening
Would I deserve to stay?
Who knows here today?
Got a ways to be
Where you know it’s happening
Track Name: New Paradigm
I’ve been on the outside
Not always looking in
I can rarely depend
Upon the things I say
Out of touch all the times
We do not share opinions (it’s fine)
All the crimes we give into
I believe in love
I grieve the from above

Another likely choice
Can’t always stay quiet
Candidates rejoice
All between
Cannot create a life
New paradigm

I’m facing one more fight
The belief is trying
Grasping for the end result
Wish I could read the cards
New paradigm

Giving others security
Belief in lover’s impurity
Give it up trade it in
Now its time for a new paradigm
To begin, to begin
Willing rise to the line
It’s a new paradigm
New paradigm
Track Name: Caliphany
Caliphany:

Caliphany is coming down from the hills
A symphony is streaming out her windows
A smile is spread across her face
She's winning without even running the race
It seems so easy sometimes....
A shady grove stimulates epiphany
Sequoias tower and create surreal canopy
What's to say that's not yet been said
Why write the words if they've already been read
Caliphany is flying through the valley lows
a symphony is streaming out her windows

Caliphany feels she's born for the sea
Although at home setting roots by the trees
She's got a smile and a mind at ease
not dictated by places, she does what she please
Born and raised here in Bakersfield
she's got a sense you relate and a smile you can feel
She made me feel I was meant to be there
Free as the breeze, and without a care
Is she even aware?

A smile spread across her face
she's winning without even running the race
She feels at home wherever she goes
a symphony's streaming out her windows

Caliphany of open mind
she makes it seem so easy sometimes
Track Name: While You Were Sleeping
While you were sleeping
I looked at you were so peaceful
under the covers and
while you were sleeping
That’s when I said to myself
this is my friend and lover and

you are my angel
I am so filled with love to have you here
you make my life into something special and clear
and every day you make me glad too

everybody needs a dream, everybody needs a dream
a dream that they can dream in old or new
Something they can have to hope and to believe in
a place where they are walking with someone hand in hand
somebody who will understand

While you were sleeping
I saw your eyes moving under
neath of your eyelids and
While you were sleeping
that’s when I knew you were deep down
down in a dreamland

That’s when I realized I would love you forever
Then I realized that I had been cruel
And I realized I didn't know nothing
I’d been such a fool

And so I hoped that you were dreaming of wonders
of better days and happier seasons
of wind driven midnights without thunder
and all the better reasons….

While you were sleeping
I looked at you were so peaceful
under the covers and
while you were sleeping
That’s when I said to myself
this is my friend and lover

you are just like an angel
I am so filled with love to have you
you make my life special
and every day you make me glad too

That’s when I knew it was for
ever…
