Track Name: All The Things We Need
ALL THE THINGS WE NEED

I was lost on a fault line
Lonely and scattered and crying like rain
Until I heard a voice from inside
Guide me and ride me to a place without pain
Where I could fly and be beside you
It's a such a trip to be so free

Don't you know that all the things we need are right here
Tap in to the wormhole that connects us to any time
All the things we need are right here
And they've always been here for us to share
Especially when we do not need them

Like a sun flare dancing cross-eyed
It's beaming and bending exciting the waves
It's like a telepathic truth guide
Loving and singing and pointing the way
Giving up is not an option when it's time you will break through the wall
Then you'll fly through any mountain
It's such a trip to be so free

Don't you know that all the things we need are right here
Tap in to the wormhole that connects us to any time
All the things we need are right here
And they've always been here for us to share

Well, Giving up is not an option when it's time you will break through the wall
Then you'll fly through any mountain
It's such a trip to be so free


Don't you know that all the things we need are right here
Tap in to the wormhole that connects us to any time
All the things, my friend are right here
And they've always been here for us to find

What's that I hear them singing? :

Lo Be Hold The Watchdog - yeah -
(I still feel the pull - I still feel the sway)
Lo Be Hold The Watchdog - yeah
(I still feel the pull - I still feel the sway)
Track Name: Questions Keep Getting Deeper
QUESTIONS KEEP GETTING DEEPER

Lo Behold the watchdog yeah - ho...
Lo' behold the watchdog yeah?
Lo Behold the watchdog yeah - ho...
Lo' behold the watchdog yeah?

Many times we’ve been stranded here when the water gets too high
Pay respects to eternity waiting for a hopeful sign

Well the questions keep getting deeper as perfection swells the tide
As the answers smile the wise old child within us flies

And the questions keep getting deeper
Sons and daughters out to sea
As the aeons ebb and flow
The answers will unfold

Many ships will have traveled here in the name of many gods
Charting clues, bobbing up ahead where the even meets the odd

Where the questions keep getting deeper as perfection swells the tide
As the answers smile the wise old child within us flies
And the questions keep getting deeper
Sons and daughters out to sea
As the aeons ebb and flow
The answers will unfold

How long is on and on?
How long for the dead and gone?

Well these questions keep getting deeper as perfection swells the tide
As the answers smile the wise old child within us flies
And the questions keep getting deeper
Sons and daughters out to sea
As the aeons ebb and flow
The answers will unfold
As the aeons ebb and flow
The answers will unfold

How long is on and on?
How long for the dead and gone?

As the aeons ebb and flow
The answers will unfold

How long?
Track Name: Befriend The Watchdog
BEFRIEND THE WATCHDOG

You’re not a prisoner here down on the ground
Things might look bad but all is well
But you have questions here about a sound
Why does the moon ring like a bell?

A myth or ancient rumor will bear itself out sooner or later
We’ll just have to wait

No dark to run from here, the monsters are all found
Some change to angels I can tell
Befriend the watchdog here and learn to love this hound
Create a heaven from this hell

Depression, frustration, the tie to abrasions grow
If you feed them with lies
But I hope you’re way too smart to drive down that road
The tears that well in your eyes should be used to water dreams of love

A chance to rise above, survey this land
Continue up out of this shell
You can’t believe how far now, with your hands, you make the moon ring like a bell

The watchdog sends this message
A wise and final vestige howl…
Track Name: The Big Conclusion
THE BIG CONCLUSION

Here we were together tracing problems in the sand
Stuck for some solutions and that got you mad
You said our relationship was a pointless waste of time
Why were we together
We must have been blind, but keep in mind

It's the journey not the destination that matters in the end
But we're waiting for the big conclusion everyday of our lives
It's the journey not the destination that keeps us on the edge to survive
But when the bus stops rolling another journey arrives

You and I are different planets each with different gifts
We would take from one another like twins
That instant magic - rare attraction had friends roll on the floor
Our brand of humor will leave their memories with smiles
and all the while

It's the journey not the destination that matters in the end
But we're waiting for the big conclusion everyday of our lives
It's the journey not the destination that keeps us on the edge to survive
But when the bus stops rolling another journey arrives

All this time you're wondering where you're going to
It's a mystery to me and a mystery to you
Well, I love a mystery
Do you love a mystery too?

Onward motion, like the ocean waves to us goodbye
Our trip is done
it's time to make other plans, so understand

It's the journey not the destination that matters in the end
But we're waiting for the big conclusion everyday of our lives
It's the journey not the destination that keeps us on the edge to survive
But when the bus stops rolling another journey arrives
