I woke up this morning, I was ten stories high Found myself inside a tower of metal, wood and sky White dream cloud swept out my cobweb mind Manitou, Somerset and Hollywood Looking out around it seems so pure and good Forgetting everything I thought I never would I never could The gears are shifting Strange voices call The curtain's lifting I can see it all Whatever came before is of no consequence A fog of lonely and misguided accidents Wondering when its going to start to make some kind of sense Some kind of sense I woke up this morning, I was ten stories high On a distant island, I don't know how or why In another place, in another time The current's shifting Sweet voices call The veil is lifting I can see it all The veil is breaking Wild voices call My hands are shaking I can see it all I can feel it all I can see it all I can see it all

Twenty Three 05:19
Twenty three - where have you been? Out looking for silver and gold Out searching for silver and gold Twenty three - what did you see? I'm not sure but it left me so cold I don't know but it made me so old Twenty three - what did you dream? I dreamed that I couldn't go home I dreamed that I'd never go home Twenty three - what do you bring? I bring you my skin and my bones I bring you my flesh and my bones And I found nothing I can believe in There was nothing I could believe in I found nothing I can believe in but myself All those corridors brought me to here, brought me to here All those tangled paths led me to here, led me to here All those corridors brought me to here, brought me to here All those twisted paths led me to here, led me to here Twenty three

Out of Time 05:55
Time is a circle You poured it all into one bowl You broke the cycle And then you fell into a hole Time is a circle Four broken wheels on this cart You turn a corner Only to come back to the start You watch it go around But you don’t see it closing in You watch it go around But you don’t see it closing in No, you can’t see it closing in Time is a circle You gotta let the bad times roll Only a circle Come on and let the bad times roll away You watch it spin around But you don’t see it closing in You watch it spin around But you don’t see it closing in No, you can’t see it closing in Am I out of time? Yes you’re out of time Are we out of time? Yes you’re out of time

Somewhere between The stars and the ground The borders and the town The fields and the crown Not going up, not going down Halfway between The frost and the bloom The window and the moon The dust and the broom I’m neither in nor out of tune Falling between The poor and the rich The highway and the ditch The wound and the stitch I cannot tell I cannot tell I cannot tell Which one is which Caught in between The heart and the head The ceiling and the bed The harvest and the bread If you’re looking If you’re looking If you’re looking That’s where I’ll be
5.
Drifting down a quiet path Drifting in and out of time The one thing they can’t take from me The one thing that’s still mine A diamond, jewel, polished stone Radiating light Something I can care about Driving home from Edmonton With a friend of mine On a highway paved with mistakes I’m going to get it right next time A beacon, signpost, cornerstone Always there when I pass by Something I am sure about Waiting, watching everyday Trying to find the words to say Reaching through the cold and grey Searching for the words to say My records lean against the wall My books sit on the shelf Dust and dreams Strange memories of searching for myself Darkness, light and in between Coalesce and swell Something I can sing about

I caught a glimpse of heaven Another side of life I caught a glimpse of heaven Of what it could be like To drop it all To step into the truth I stumbled on some wonder Harmony and peace In city lights reflected On silent flocks of geese Pulled by moon and wind And forces I can't know I felt a sense of freedom Innocence and grace As they floated slowly past me And disappeared in space Abiding in the galaxies and suns I caught a glimpse of heaven

Newborn 04:35
I am a newborn child I have no past at all Yes, I am a newborn child No, I have no past at all My heart is open, my life has begun I am a newborn child I am nobody’s son I am a tired man A bag of bones and skin I tired and weary man My light has grown so dim I guess I’m chained to the world of man after all I am a tired man My summer’s turned to fall I am a newborn child And I don’t understand What I’m doing wrong I’m doing everything that I can But I’ve been reborn before And I’ll be reborn again, and again, and again I am a newborn child, and I’m a tired man

I'm lost in memory In the colors, in the streets In golden light, and turning maple leaves Every step I take Brings me deeper into dreams Still so out of reach I'm led by memory Through the avenues and trees Through shifting light, and waves of evergreen Everywhere I look Is some ghost or history Still just out of reach Something in my heart has always known Something here inside has always known what I should do I'm safe in memory Into passages beneath Into fading light, and the endless blue of sleep Every time I close my eyes Saskatoon’s under my feet Always just in reach Somewhere in my heart I’ve always known Somewhere here inside I’ve always what I should do In my heart of hearts, in my heart In my buried heart, in my heart In my heart of hearts, in my heart In my faded heart, in my heart Something in my heart has always known Somewhere here inside I’ve always known

Oh, the money’s tight And our friends have all left town How was it we were the last ones Left hanging around? And we’ve thrown all our coins To the bottom of the well In hope of the strength To break through this spell No, we've done nothing wrong No, we’ve done nothing wrong I know we don’t have much But then there's not much that we need Let all hungry dogs bark And the vampires feed They are all out for our blood And they can't be satisfied But I won’t let them have yours And they will never get mine No, we've done nothing wrong No, we’ve done nothing wrong And when we go out tonight Why don’t we go out in style? We gotta take back our time And live for a while And when we go out tonight I want to go out in style We gotta steal back the time To laugh and to smile To laugh and to smile, to laugh and to smile To laugh and to smile, to laugh and to smile 5:30 pm summer light streaming in Outside two pine trees sway Back and forth in the wind One day they’ll bend down for us One day they’ll lift us off the ground And we won’t look back again We won’t ever come down No, we've done nothing wrong No, we’ve done nothing wrong And when we go out tonight Why don’t we go out in style? We gotta take back our time And live for a while And when we go out tonight I want to go out in style We gotta steal back the time To laugh and to smile To laugh and to smile, to laugh and to smile To laugh and to smile, to laugh and to smile

Sunset 05:44
The day is done No sense in running anymore The day is done No sense in pushing anymore The earth is sighing As the sun is going down The earth is sighing As the sun is going down, down, down The dream is here It stood beside you all this time The dream is here It was inside you all this time The earth is sighing As your sun is going down The earth is sighing As your sun is going down, down, down The day is done You watch it flow into the night The dream is here You dream another dream of flight The earth is sighing As the sun is going down The earth is sighing As your sun is going down The spirit’s rising As the sun is going down River birds crying As the sun is going down, down, down
