Track Name: Turn It Up
sell your story
turn to glory
if there's more it can turn us up
feel enlightened
see things brightened
if you want we can turn it up

and if you want there is anything to do in the world
and if you need there is anything to be in the world
and if you feel there is anyone to love in the world
and if you're me there is anything to dream in the world

some will linger
hear the singer
watch him play as he turns it up
if they wonder
breathing thunder
they can fly as we turn it up

and if you want there is anything to do in the world
and if you need there is anything to be in the world
and if you feel there is anyone to love in the world
and if you're me there is anything to dream in the world

walk the line and
be the times and
feel the groove or we'll turn it up
run the races
see the places
live your life or they'll turn it up

and if you want there is anything to do in the world
and if you need there is anything to be in the world
and if you feel there is anyone to love in the world
and if you're me there is anything to dream in the world

and if you're me there is anything to dream in the world
and if you're you there is anything to dream in the world
and if you're them there is anything to dream in the world
and if you're us there is anything to dream in the world
Track Name: Moonlight Tide
my thoughts like jetstreams
tripping through reason and rhyme
the fleeting, flying sunset passion
working my mind and leaping past time

the stumbling reverie
soaring straight in from outside
the late-night watchman fires right through me
watching the waves of a brief moonlight tide

my thoughts like jetstreams
tripping through reason and rhyme
the fleeting, flying sunset passion
working my mind and leaping past time

so sing me a song
if that's how you can help me
the door won't stay open much longer
come in and help or go on your way

or feel the moonlight
tripping through reason and rhyme
the floating, buzzing moonlit passion
working my mind and leaping past time
Track Name: Secret Thinkers
this one's for you, you secret thinkers
you who rise before you fall
you who never turn your backs
it's for the world outside
where there's no place left to hide
it's for time that's long run out

this one's for you, you modern poets
you who kept the dream alive
you who stumble, you who fall
it's for the ones who will stand
who will fight for their fellow man
it's for them with their backs against the wall
Track Name: The Colour Of Your Dreams
oh-ah-mm
Track Name: In My Time Of Dyin'
in my time of dyin'
i will feel no pain
all the good supplyin'
fed into my brain
if i'm living backwards
i don't know why
in my time of dyin'
i'll be free to fly

and there's nothing you can do or say
nothing matters anyway
another soul leaves the world today

in my time of dyin'
i should feel alive
i should hear no cryin'
i should hear no lies
which way moves us onwards?
which way holds us back?
in my time of dyin'
i'll be right on track

and there's nothing you can do or say
nothing matters anyway
another soul leaves the world today

in my time of dyin'
all will be revealed
walk down that street a-sighin'
hoping to be healed
if you ask what reason
if you ask me how
it's my time of dyin'
i can't tell you now
Track Name: Fly With The Moon (In Your Mind)
sit and lift the stars with me
if we are the same
i'm on the other side of your mind
come and share a thought with me
come and take the blame
i'm only in your mind

why spend your time
with all these hateful freaks and swine
now they're mine
we own it all and
oh, how could it be
that none of this world was meant for me
come fly with the moon and
it will be

feel the storm above the clouds
keep your window wide
i'm on the other side of your mind
see that candle flicker out
keep it by your side
i'm always in your mind

why spend your time
with all these loathsome freaks and swine
now they're mine
we own it all and
oh, how could it be
that none of this world was meant for me
come fly with the moon and
it will be

colour in the bloodshot air
fill it in with blue
i'm on the other side of your mind
call the land loud as you dare
call it here to you
i'm forever in your mind

why spend your time
with all these heinous freaks and swine
now they're mine
we own it all and
oh, how could it be
that none of this world was meant for me
come fly with the moon and
it will be
Track Name: Watch The Thunder Melting
walk right out of your head
and you're trying so hard just to stare out the mirror and
crumble down to a thread
but you watch the thunder melting

candles often misled
what you took for a brave attempt, ink lines are daggers and
soon your page will be dead
but you watch the thunder melting on the horizon, on the horizon


feel the smoke in the leaves
it wanders right by you, it summons up courage and
flies you up to the trees
but you watch the thunder melting

feel the curve of the breeze
and you feel yourself laughing as no-one can hear you now
still they beg with you please
but you watch the thunder melting on the horizon, on the horizon

there is no-one to blame
if you lost the spark in your eyes
tumbleweed on the plain
and we miss you, and we miss you


see the moon on the rise
feel it lighting the world, see the gleam in its eye as it
wanders up in the sky
but you watch the thunder melting

feel the colours fly
feel the beauty, the melody, feel the prosperity
soon they say we will die
but you watch the thunder melting on the horizon, on the horizon

there is no-one to blame
if you lost the spark in your eyes
tumbleweed on the plain
and we miss you, and we miss you
