Riverside 02:57
Sitting by the riverside Makes me ponder What a world we live in Shaped by Where we go Our mystic river of Chance Sitting by the riverside Makes me ponder The ironic twist We catch glimpses of As we follow the line We believe to be real Our mystic river of Chance

Snow Ghosts 05:27
The storm has come and brought with it the cold In the dead of winter, the quiet comes alive In this hilltop cabin where I sit patiently The window is frosted in patterns of leaves Without a word, frozen in time, Melting down into closed eyes Underneath electric winter skies The wind plays in patterns in the fields nearby... The north wind blows the snow ghosts all around The cold wind cleans all the cobwebs from my head Snow ghosts dancing up the hillside The cold wind cleans all the cobwebs from my head

All of these years with you Our favorite thing to do Is grab a coffee and go And get out on the road Play all our singing songs Watch the landscape rollin’ on Places new, places with you There are so many things still to do... To get out of the city And get out on the road To get out of the city And get out on the road The thunder of the wheels rolling on Reminds me that I’m gone Somewhere with you Anywhere we choose Off to a mountaintop Or anyplace we pick to stop Rollin’ on the road There is always always always farther to go To get out of the city And get out on the road To get out of the city And get out on the road See the northern lights from the prairies Or sunrise from Gaspé Caught a wave in Tofino Drove all night singing songs

The Well 06:21
The well is open, Fill it until it overflows Build it up, Infuse it with all you have Stuff it full, Of anything you can offer Then let it be consumed Drunken by all, Reaped for everything it has Emptied By anyone who dares Then let it be consumed Only to be refilled Again and again The cycle repeats endlessly The well is open, Fill it until it overflows Build it up, Infuse it with all you have Until it cannot refill anymore Until its walls have collapsed into itself Then let it be consumed...

Walking close to the shore, People come here all the time It's just out of the city The miles don't mean a thing Changing perspectives meet the tide, The water speaks a thousand tongues A place to recognize All the patterns in our lives These moments mean everything!! Turn my head, Look around, Heard a thousand voices; Sounded like the colors of the setting sun... I came out to the shore To walk with the sands between my toes I watched the birds sail the breeze And the universe made sense The melody of the moment Seemed to guide my sense of peace Pronouncing each detail Like a lost memory returned... These moments mean everything!! Turn my head, Look around, Heard a thousand voices; Sounded like the colors of the setting sun...

Dusty Road 04:32
Dusty Road, Lonely site, Working crew’s gone home for the night. Fateful day, Step away, From a world that swallows everything in sight; Got your boots, Need the pay, They rope you in for one more day Till you learn the trade and take on the stress - I hope you’ve chosen where the money’s best This is the moment where you choose What is important to you Freedom has many faces Hammer rings, The stone is shaped, 
The wall is built by sweat alone Hands hoisting, Shovels turning, It all comes together one by one Has to be done... No one else can see what you need to be; Each man alone carves his path. There is something you will see When you figure out how to be; Never let your dreams go by... Freedom has many faces; This Dusty Road
7.
Fireflies, And a willow tree ...in this day of suspended time!! Little flashes of light, Just part of the sights ...washing the city from our souls!! Barn on the hill, Climbing the trees ... these sunny rolling fields!! Under the stars, Firelight on your face ...it seems too good to me!! Disappear into the silence of this day so new and familiar Walk the path of this garden Disappear into the sun Into the silence of the places we once knew Step by step we walk beyond what we have imagined Disappear into the silence of this day so new and familiar Walk the path of this garden Disappear into the sun Into the silence... You find it in your heart This place where it all began, You knew it from the start....

Highway 101 03:57
I can tell you that it’s true A road that has places that come along with you As you travel long and far Everywhere you are You hear stories Of many who’ve come before Cast their spell Traveled well And left their tale to tell At the hotel at the end of Highway 101 Where we leave our tales to tell.... Years ago I know, There was a dream that swept the land; Come here, come now Make a better stand. From the east over the divide From the west by oceans tide They settled in the south where the warmth was healing And the north where the rain kept them dreaming… We are the words being written on the sand From where our hand draws the magic of the land At the hotel at the end of Highway 101 Where we leave our tales to tell.... 101 becomes the one And the sun just comes to shine And the people take their time When you listen to what they speak Visions of calm intensity drift from Their symbol of the road Winding along the sea And through the breeze of borrowed time Balancing the curves And currents of the mind At the hotel at the end of time At the hotel at the end of Highway 101 Where we leave our tales to tell....

26th Hymn 05:30
Into your confused Vision filled with haze Work your way out Of your own maze And see the universe before you, Living and now It is truly not a question of how It is dance of things, Both ancient and new Of things long gone, And things still to do Like a flower that will wilt In some coming hour Like a streaking light In a meteor shower There are things that come and go But like the universe and time itself There will be some that will always know So come on down and follow the road To the bend where even time has slowed Like a flower that will wilt In some coming hour Like a streaking light in a meteor shower It is there that you will find It is there that you will smile And begin your climb To the lost archives of your mind So come on down and follow the road To the bend where even time has slowed
10.
Such a change, drivin’ in out of the darkness To the sepia glow of the city at 4AM Cars racing around, people with many things to do At all hours of the night, the city never sleeps, maybe quiets into a lucid dream We keep rollin... We keep rollin... Such a change, drivin out to the countryside The malls end, and the landscape opens up A thousand leaves drift across the highway Reminding me that everything has its time This road is like a river, going all around the world... We keep rollin... We keep rollin... This road is like a river, going all around the world....
11.
Tell me a story... That makes me Look at the world With fresh open eyes Where the wind is blowing Across the grass And the clouds in the mountain pass Makes me feel like the first time I saw such things Makes me feel like I’ve opened my eyes Tell me a story... I know there's a way To look at the world Like it's the first time I saw such things Where it feels like I’ve opened my eyes That magic in the moment That mystical place And everything is glazed In the hue of the numinous... Look at the world And tell me a story, tell me a story...
12.
From far and wide From many a different side We came to catch a ride So we took a boat all together To a place of our dreams Where nothing is as it seems And where all emptiness somehow gleams It was growing everywhere In all shapes and all kinds... 
Once we were there we set up Our way of life In this place of gleaming emptiness We danced every night And within our place a peace now grew So now there was a circle of truth And it lived not just in our minds It was growing everywhere It was growing everywhere in all shapes and all kinds... It grew on trees and showered in the sky Swam in waters and knew how to fly It was growing everywhere In all shapes and all kinds

Intangibles 05:23
A feeling that escapes description, Powerful beyond submission Another universe, Might be the first... A place like nowhere before, Under another sun The world’s just begun, Open your eyes Intangibles, dreaming of Intangibles, believing in, Intangibles.... A feeling that escapes description... The Story goes goes beyond today, Woven in words the tale it stays Over the ages told again and again, Sweeter than even when it began Like a sun lighting universes lives away, And we feel it just like it’s today Intangibles, dreaming of Intangibles, believing in, Intangibles.... You gave your love to me, Your loyalty, your creativity... And now it’s planted down inside, Like an old lullaby. I’d take you with me through other worlds, You are the one who is like no other girl Among the stars in the night we’ll fly, So we never have to say goodbye... Intangibles, dreaming of Intangibles, believing in, Intangibles.... A feeling that escapes description, Like an old lullaby.....
