Track Name: Move On
Her eyes were all stone and her feet were of clay
Run, run along in the warmth of the day
I'll move on
I'll move on

My ship is sinking and hers is afloat
She knows not my trouble
She's not in my boat
I'll move on
I'll move on

Why was she so wonderful to me?
What could she gain by being free?
She went away and I can't sleep

Let me down gently
I'll heed what you say
Tell me to leave and I'll go far away
I'll move on
I'll move on

Why was she so wonderful to me?
What could she gain by being free?
She went away and I can't sleep
Track Name: Vanish in Smoke
I see no reason to be kind
When you're acting all the time
Like I'm a pool of slime, slime
I'm just an ordinary man
You thought I had a plan
Now the curtain's coming down, down, down

Yesterday I thought I knew the truth
But today all I want is you
Lived for twenty years with your neck in a rope
Now you must learn to with yourself cope
Da da da

You'll go down at the helm of your ship
You won't remember who the hell you were with
When your brain is fried
And your parents have died
And your children have cried
For the life they're denied
Track Name: Warmth
Warmth

I looked into the orange sky
I lost my sight but I gained a friend
I jumped into the waterfall
Hoping my soul would find a new home
Onward it traveled, over the sea
No longer me

Leave my memory intact
Until I come back, born into wealth
What am I doing until then?
I'm just spinning my loom
Wondering how all of these ghosts
Could live in you

Carry me back to the place that was warm
Tuck me in, read to me 'til you get bored
I know that when I dream I'll think of the answer
But when I wake up I'll freak out and go shower

I'll step out so clean with clarity in my mind
And in my eyes
Forgetting problems of mornings long-gone
Put on my shoes
Humming a song
Track Name: It All Just Sounds the Same
Standing naked in a river
No one else around
You think that they all can hear you
But you cannot hear a sound

Your eyes play tricks
You think you see
Soon you’ll be divorced from reality
You’ve come and gone
The game’s been played
And it all just sounds the same

Then the race begins
To save your sanity
You reach out for a rope
But find just your vanity

Your eyes play tricks
You think you see
Soon you’ll be divorced from reality
You’ve come and gone
The game’s been played
And it all just sounds the same
Track Name: Dreamer
This boy, this boy is tired
Tired of waiting, waiting around
For something, something to grow here
Here in his garden,
His garden of trust

When it grows, he'll be lucky
When it shows he's one of us
People say he's a dreamer
He responds, “I'm just like you.”

As his thread unravels
The road less traveled belongs to him
Missing, what is he missing?
He knows what he's missing
He lives behind a stone

When it grows, he'll be lucky
When it shows he's one of us
People say he's a dreamer
He responds, “I'm just like you.”

Into the woods
Up through the fields he'll follow you
He's crying aloud
He'll make it better somehow
He's waiting for your call

This boy, this boy is tired
Tired of people who just mess around
This boy, this boy is tired
Of those who don't hear him
Who can't hear his call

When it grows, he'll be lucky
When it shows he's one of us
People say he's a dreamer
He responds, “I'm just like you.”
