Track Name: What Is Said
Search into time
We’ll always climb
The ladder that you’ve found around there
Cut with the tongue
Brush with the air
Help is on it’s way
Though I can promise a delay
Acclimate to where you are
Stuck on your thumb or point to where you are

So much to lose and to gain
Always so strange
What can be real?
I’ll make you feel
That’s what is said
Cause there’s nothing to dread
And it’s all in our heads
So much to lose and to gain
Always so strange
What can’t be real?
I’ll make you feel
That’s what is said
Cause there’s nothing to dread
And it’s all in our heads

Justify in your eyes
Only to the light
The people you have told with concern
Plant the seeds firm
Fly or watch it burn
So much to loose and to gain
Always so strange
What can’t be real?
I’ll make you feel
That’s what is said
Cause there’s nothing to dread
And it’s all in our heads

Ahhhh
Ahhhh
Ahhhh
Ahhhh
Track Name: Circulated Undercover Ground
I see you coming
But you're already here
Why do you follow
What should and ought to appear
You try to swallow all of your girlfriend's words
You find it obnoxious
You find it so absurd

You and me
Ought to agree
Once and awhile
Make you smile
Endlessly
Into time
It takes some time to let you down
Into a Circulated Undercover Ground

Little imperfections
Are just all we need
Being true to the sound
For good or worse indeed
I'm right behind you
Pulling on your hair
Don't think I'd leave you
I'll back you up right there

You and me
Ought to agree
Once and awhile
Make you smile
Endlessly
Into time
It takes some time to let you down
Into a Circulated Undercover Covered Ground
Track Name: Circles Of Time
In the circles of time
It comes back again only to find
Though things may cycle around you
You'll never experience what was then you
Though things may happen all again
You will change when you spin within
The road might come on back to you
But you've been changing gears all the way through

Oooo
Oooo
Oooo

In the circles of time
You don't have to go all around to find
How you've changed and how it's stayed
You can cut corners like a figure 8
Life's deceiving when you cut through
You've changed direction forming the new
When you change direction forming your path
You've formed two circles from one in half

Oooo
Oooo
Oooo

In the circles of time
You will change as others assign
Themselves to what was the same
Circling around yields no gain

Oooo
Oooo
Oooo
Track Name: All Over Again
In times when I had tried to break the cruel
I turned around to only see an angry fool
What is not the cause
To put my life on an indefinite pause and start all over again

It's hard it's simple it's so plain to see
Words come and go always fade so easily
What is not the cause
When we're stuck and we don't seem lost
Do we question ourselves again

So it seems
40 years and what did we bring
Not enough time
To see you walk past mine
And see me walk past yours
The rope has thrown to catch it in
Learning to help always starts with a friend
Can only meet you halfway
As long as you say
I'll meet you halfway too

In times when I had tried to break the cruel
I turned around to only see an angry fool
But who am I to judge
Your actions and what they're of
When we start all over again
Track Name: Black To The Blues
I see everyone around me
Even if you can take me over
It’s not like we stick together
Close is all I know how to be
With or without you being free
That’s something I can take for granted soon
Cause it’s true

Haste there’s not time to make waste
Of how you can take you over
But if you learn how to know her
You’ll find what is hard and what signs
Define when you can take your own time
Cause stepping through
All comes right back down to you

Oh and you find yourself getting older
Like you always do
And you find yourself hugging a shoulder
Just to lean onto
And we find ourselves crawling back
Where we crawled right through
And we find ourselves the colors enact
Black To The Blues

Oh and you find yourself getting older
Like you always do
And you find yourself hugging a shoulder
Just to lean onto
And we find ourselves crawling back
Where we crawled right through
And we find ourselves the colors enact
Black To The Blues

I know what you’re thinking
Why do you ask me?
Answer the question
It can’t get past me
I can’t compare what
Is everlasting
Some disaloustion
Something’s distracting
To react in
It’s a fact that
We are bound by this

Oh and you find yourself getting older
Like you always do
And you find yourself hugging a shoulder
Just to lean onto
And we find ourselves crawling back
Where we crawled right through
And we find ourselves the colors enact
Black To The Blues
Track Name: True To Your Game
Piece it together
It's the tricky part of this
Except for the weather
Control is all that gives you bliss
You act like you show it
Even though it's tough to hide
I promise you'll know it
The time will come to step aside
I believe in the things like you
After weeks of getting through
And to talk it out

Start it again
Soon to find it's far away
I'm a believer in always staying true to your game
Nobody said we always gotta fool around
The invitations closer when you stare and look me down

Not too late
The time has come
To put the memory back in your brain
Did you remember?
It happens again and again
Why try
When you seem unsatisfied
Did you hear it?
It's a matter of question rather why
I believe in the things like you
After weeks of getting through
And to talk it out

Start it again
Soon to find it's far away
I'm a believer in always staying true to your game
Nobody said we always gotta fool around
The invitations closer when you stare and look me down

Sing it out for the sake of singing it out for the sake of
Say it out for the sake of saying it out for the sake of
Sing it out for the sake of singing it out for the sake of
Say it out for the sake of saying it out

Start it again
Soon to find it's far away
I'm a believer in always staying true to your game
Nobody said we always gotta fool around
The invitations closer when you stare and look me down

Start it again
Soon to find it's far away
I'm a believer in always staying true to your game
Nobody said we always gotta fool around
The invitations closer when you stare and look me down
Track Name: Portland Nights
I’ve been late to the floor
I get so tired
I’ve been late to the floor
I get so tired
Spin it while you can
Or come back with dire
Situations that end
They can expire
Don’t leave me to light I
Come to surround

I’ve been late to the floor
I get so tired
I’ve been late to the floor
I get so tired
Spin it while you can
Or come back with dire
Situations that end
They can expire
Don’t leave me to light I

Come to surround
Come to surround
Come to surround
Come to surround
Track Name: When Others Don't
Running around in circles always left to find
Losing my religions always kept me blind
You can move the pavement for something in between
Caught up in your curtains the sunshine it beams
I will be the one who knows takes it all away but when I stay

Coming up onto it forcing your own will
Giving it attentions always overkill
Sitting right beside you
Watching you dream
Pretending I don't see it well that's just me
I will be the one who knows where you are when you don't

Cause it’s you who’s looking back
Yes it’s you who’s right on track
Cause it’s your who’s taught me to live
Cause it’s you for all I give

Packing up a suitcase where will you go?
Defining your own texture
The White Plains they know
Horizons never end cause they follow your own stream
Extending your dimensions defining your own means
I will be the one who always understands when others don’t

And it’s a language that we speak doing what we can
Never saying anything speaking with our hands
Dropped into this world lost without a way
Finding you was the only thing that made me stay
I will be the one who always loves you when other’s don’t

Cause it’s you who’s looking back
Yes it’s you who’s right on track
Cause it’s your who’s taught me to live
Cause it’s you
