Track Name: The Ocean
Every one heard me when I was screaming
And I've tried singing
But when there was a dust storm
In the middle of the ocean
No one heard me ask
"Where were you?"
And nothing's changed because
Every time I say goodbye
I look into my goat's eyes
And I wonder why 15,000 people walked around and around
And then I realized it's because
There is too much to be seen
Track Name: Morning Grass
I walk through streets at night
I flock through the breeze all right
I saw dew on morning grass
I gasped, all my fears relaxed

Let's go away on the road
Let's throw away all we know
I would like you to show me a good time
All alone

Now there's nothing left to hold
Track Name: Blue
I went down
Down to the ocean and found
A piece of my mind I had left in the rocks
I recognized all of the boats on the docks
Beneath waves I frolicked
And scraped away my toe polish
I wished you were there at the top of the stairs
Holding your hat in the wind
Baby Blue

Everything under the sun
Looks like a whole lot of fun
Follow that sound
Of the waves crashing down
The branches hang low to the ground, I have found
The gopher lies patient under his mound
Beneath clouds, I vanished
And felt like I had been banished
But with you, I will always feel true
Nothing else matters to me and you,

Now when I think of you
And everything that you can do
I wished you were here with the wind in your hair
The sunlight behind you, making me stare
You're here today, I am very aware
There's so many moments I know we will share,
Track Name: Home
I don't know what to say anymore
It's all the same
No matter where I live,
I look back, dream of the past

The moon stares at my eyes
And I realize nothing dies
Things just take all new shapes
Like the vines full of grapes

Moving refreshes my mind
I've got to leave these places sometimes
It's nothing new, you've noticed by now
Here I go
I'm leaving, ciao!

I wish I had place
In this world I could call home
But I wont know until I feel it
But I'm sure I never will
Track Name: Here They Come
I went down to the river and I saw Jimmy

I went down to the fire and I saw Jimmy and apparently the cops are coming and they're gonna get us right now...

Here they come
Track Name: The Birds Pt. 3
As the birds fluttered by
Without a sound
They picked up speed and
Flew down, into the cave
Without a sound
They landed there alone
Follow that sound
Of the waves crashing down
On the beach
One by one
The sand never settles
It shifts and turns around
Into the ground

As the birds fluttered by and
the rain began to sing,
I was thinking of you and
the dirty little things you do

I miss you so

Now the birds are flying south,
they're leaving me all alone
but I'm not too worried
because I know you're coming home

I miss you so
Track Name: I Wish I Could Fly
The heat was still
The geese stood still

And I wish I could fly
And leave behind the times
I told you I would teach you how to fly
but now, I don't know why

They say, "it's all wrong"
They say, "forget your songs"
But I sing all my songs
because my songs sing to me
Track Name: Into The Future
I know you can't see into the future
Track Name: The Clearing Pt. 3
I'm knee deep in grass that runs wild and parallel to the river
The sun comes out, the wind picks up and I rest from my long walk
I can see a snow-covered mountain range ahead
I knew exactly what it was when I saw it
The clearing was just ahead
The geese stood still
My feet sunk in
