Track Name: Nothing At All
I want you to know
Just what I've become
I don't think you are recognizing

It was nothing at all
It was nothing at all

There's a sink all full of hair
That you just can't seem to clean
And the moose comes stares in front of you

It was nothing at all
It was nothing at all
It was nothing at all
Track Name: Highest Mountain
Destiny it doesn't seem that far
Yeah, come with me I'll show you how
It's plain to see, it's hidden in the clouds
Yeah, I could see that shooting star

I climbed the highest mountain
To see the future is ours
The sun was breaking on the horizon
But you waited

Yeah, I believe there's somebody out there
Yeah, I can hear you in my sleep
So walk with me into the outer sphere
I will show you what you need

I climbed the highest mountain
To see the future is ours
The sun was breaking on the horizon
But you waited

I climbed the highest mountain
To see the future is ours
This plan was over when we put sound in
But you waited

Yeah we waited
Yeah we waited
Too long
Track Name: Cylinder
Into the woods we walked
Down by the suffering station
It's been awhile since we talked
I don't know if I can see you, yeah

Something to make me wired
Something to take the edge off
Somehow I make it by
Things are not always silent, yeah

Enter the sun, enter the miracle of love
Tell me you love her, just not today
I'll leave a light on anyway
Tell me you never apologized
That never even crossed your mind
Tell me it all, cause I'm here right now

Cylinder

Forgive and I will
Seems like things are changing
Forget and I will
Or it's gonna make you hollow, yeah

Enter the sun, enter the miracle of love
Tell me you love her, just not today
I'll leave a light on anyway
Tell me you never apologized
The never ever even crossed your mind
Tell me it all, cause I'm here right now

Tell me it all, cause I'm here right now
Tell me it all, cause I'm here right now
Tell me it all, cause I'm here right now
Tell me it all, cause I'm here right now

Cylinder
Track Name: Save You
Sometimes I feel strange
Sometimes I don't feel alright
Like lost in a way
But the truth comes out somewhere

I wanted to love you
I wanted to make things right
I wanted to save you tonight

It'll be ok
It'll work out somehow
That distant day
When the truth comes out somewhere

I wanted to love you
I wanted to make things right
I wanted to save you tonight
I wanted to love you
I wanted to make you mine
I wanted to save you tonight

Oh the wait
Summer dreams
Just to bring you home
But I forget just what to do
Something brings me back always

I wanted to love you
I wanted to make things right
I wanted to save you tonight
I wanted to love you
I wanted to change your mind
I wanted save you tonight
I wanted love you
I wanted to make you mine
I wanted save you tonight
Track Name: Headlights
Headlights move me along
Break through all this fog
Out here on my own
Headlights bring me home

This time that we spent
Alone turning the bends
Headlights begin

Headlights you're all I can see
From up here you're gleaming
People going their ways
You'll get there one day

This time that we spent
Alone turning the bends
Headlights begin that's right

This time that we spent
Alone turning the bends
Headlights begin
Track Name: 1000 Pink Balloons
Like yesterday
I want the world to know you
Like watergate
I'm lost in this world without you

I won't run away
I won't let you down
Until you fade away
A thousand pink balloons
Got lost along the way
Never to be found

I cast a stray
I want the world to know you
Like yesterday
Got lost in the sun without you

I won't run away
I won't let you down
Until you fade away
A thousand pink balloons
Got lost along the way
Never to be found

Oh, it's so messed up
What do we do?
I'm a lot like you

I won't run away
I won't let you down
Until you fade away
A thousand pink balloons
Got lost along the way
Never to be found
Track Name: It's On My Way (Take A Ride)
I forget again
What was it that you said?
A thousand times before
One foot out the door
You wanted so much
Just to make it right
And you worried so much
Just to make it right
One last dance tonight

It's on my way take a ride
And some might say you're on my side
Off to the other side

I can see you now
Breaking through the crowd
Time and circumstance
A corridor a glance

And you wanted so much
Just to make it right
And you worried so much
Just to make it right
One last dance tonight

It's on my way take a ride
And some might say you're on my side
The sun will set the sun will rise
It's on my way take a ride
Off to the other side

It's on my way take a ride
Some might say you're on my side
The sun will set the sun will rise
It's on my way take a ride
Off to the other side
Track Name: Hold On Mama
Sometimes you have to go on
Knowing that it's wrong
I've been at this for hours
Or maybe not that long
Solitary feelings and solitary thoughts
Thought I heard you saying darling
Just keep playing that song

Hold on mama
It's alright, I know it's harder this way
Been stuck in the middle of my life
Trying to find my way

An old familiar places
An old familiar field
Where nothing ever changes
Except the seasons and the years
An old familiar faces
An old familiar wave
Kinda like the way it smells
After it rains

Hold on mama
It's alright, I know it's harder this way
Been stuck in the middle of my life
Trying to find my way
Take your religion it's alright
Listen to what they say
I've been to every city mama
I'm telling you they're all the same
Track Name: Great Illusion
It's another great illusion
Love there's no substitution
It's just another marble floor
You're coming back from the war
I think I'll just let out a scream
But no one's gonna hear me
Besides I just can't relate
I just don't have what it takes
So what're you gonna do now?
Just look up at the clouds
And listen to some new music
It's gonna get you through it
I heard you're gonna run away
And go off to some other place
And go mad like Jack Nicholson
Roadblocks, closed doors, no one's listening

It's another great illusion
Life there's no substitution
Heard you wanna ask for more
Then you're runnin' out the door
Think I'll just let out a scream
But no one's gonna hear me
Besides I can't get up off the seat
Oh boy it's got it's claws in me
I heard you’re gonna runaway
Go off to some other place
And go mad like Jack Nicholson
Roadblocks, closed doors, no one's listening
What’re you gonna do now?
Just look up at the clouds
And listen to some new music
It's gonna get you through it
Track Name: Hard Road
I've been seeing much clearer
Coming out of the fog
Took a look in the mirror
To see who I was
Wondering where all the time went
Where'd the party go?
Now I'm stuck on this island
Waiting to grow old

Like you said
It's a hard road
Like you said
It's a tough load
Like you said
It's a hard road ahead

Another year behind me
Another up ahead
Nothing left to remind me
Just the words you said
You said it was kind of an illusion
That you see beyond
You gotta go through confusion
Till you get where you want

Like you said
It's a hard road
Like you said
It's a tough load
Like you said
It's a hard road

Well I didn't leave there
You left me behind
There's some kind of reason
Only hurt you'll find
So I'm calling lost angels
Where are you tonight?

I've been seeing much clearer
Coming out of the fog
Took a look in the mirror
To see who I was
Wondering where all the time went
Where'd the party go?
Never heard such silence
When it starts to snow
