Track Name: West Wind
Forgotten sons of the ground
Elder daughters lost at sea

I don't know what's right
And I don't know what's wrong
But I know...

West Wind she rises
Veil for the moon
Warm gentle whispers
Seep through the tomb

A sparrow song through the age
Restless as a newborn babe

I don't know what's wrong
And I don't know what's right
But I know...

West Wind she rises
Veil for the moon
Warm gentle whispers
Seep through the tomb

When I try to catch her
She slips away
Beautiful mother nature
A beautiful day
Track Name: Sometimeboy
Lost my breath in the psychic playground, right under the moon
Fluttered fast as it floated away, to its ethereal tomb

What a lovely surprise, if you don't care about life
Got a look in your eyes, that this event was not a surprise

Hit the ground and I made a loud thud, boom! it shook the room
Darkness swept all over my mind, I'll be dead real soon

What a lovely surprise, if you don't care about life
Got a look in your eyes, that this event was not a surprise
What a lovely surprise, if you don't care about life
Got a look in those eyes, that this event was not a surprise
Track Name: You And I
Going back to sleep
I lay my head down
To avoid feeling like a creep
I try to think away my frown

You and I were never meant to be
Though my heart can't shake this eternity

Open my heart to heaven (my heart)
I find out that there's no room for me (no room for me)
If I can't make it to heaven (out of my reach)
I might as well enjoy being free (free)

You and I were never meant to be
Though my heart can't shake this eternity
To live a good life, what must I do?
Appreciate beauty, hugs and kisses too
Track Name: Ballooning
Like a precious pearl
Very few in the world

So beautiful
And true

A tender glance
Locked with my eyes
It fills me up
Gives me a heart

Beauty dressed in a word
Vain attempts to observe

All that's beautiful
And true

A tender glance
Locked with my eyes
It fills me up
Gives me a heart
Track Name: Sunshine (Sparklehorse)
I opened my eyes
And watched the sunshine
It had been out all night
To relax and unwind

There will come a time gigantic
Waves will crush the junk that I have saved
When the moon explodes or floats away
I'll lose the souvenirs I made
La la la

I lay down on the grass
And let the insects do their thing
She covered me with wings and
Held my head and said 'poor thing'

There will come a time gigantic
Waves will crush the junk that I have saved
When the moon explodes or floats away
I'll lose the souvenirs I made
La la la
Track Name: Little Child
What could this be? He's not the only one
There's nothing to see, dress him with flowers
A beautiful boy, perfectly wholesome
Call out the demons so he can move on

Half of his heart is riddled with darkness
Sinking apart, the neutral and good bits

He was a little child

Don't call him by name, he's not one of us now
He's taking the train, or the old bus down
He's singing the blues, his version of sadness
He's thinking of you, special personal madness

Half of his heart is riddled with darkness
Sinking apart, the neutral and good bits

He was a little child
Track Name: Here We Are
Here we are
Moving fast
Catch your breath
This won't last

Don't be scared
Have no fear
We're in a moving circle
Track Name: Bleeps And Bloops On The Radar
Cathartic songs of love and laughter, something good is coming towards me
Shattered glass and broken flowers, tattered thoughts taken for granted

Sentimental horseshoe calling, my name out from the ink on the pages
Observing bleeps and bloops on the radar, happiness is a form of presence

Suck yourself straight into blue
Don't give a care where you're going to
A stony face shall never break
your broken heart, a bleeding fake

I'm so sorry, I spilled the ink on the pages
I'm so sorry, I'm not the one
I'm so damn sorry, I let my heart go
Cause I can't see you going somewhere all alone

Barking dogs and sunshine powers, heat collects right on the surface
Days go by, the nights feel longer, my mortal days won't last forever
Track Name: Shell Shock
Many people I see make me so uptight
I think I'm starting to grasp the reasons why
These college days keep flying by
Must ask myself: 'Am I doing it right?'

You gotta get outta your shell
It's okay

Suspicious claims, a pie in the sky
I will not eat it when I die
A man on his knees is less of a man
At least that's what I've come to understand

You gotta get outta your shell
It's okay
Track Name: Living Better From A Distance
Miners and Bibles are vying to steal me away
Black clouds keep pushing pollution towards my face

Don't let the sun catch you crying
And don't let the moon see you sighing

When you're awake

Share a room with Neptune, though Venus she turns me away
If I was a horsey, I'd have a longer face

Don't let the sun catch you crying
And don't let the moon see you sighing
As long as the stars keep on shining

It'll be ok
When you're awake
