Sea of Tranquility

I live in the light of the bright silver moon
I'll take you off sailing from midnight till noon
I'll show the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen see
I live in the shade of a forest of green
In the wildest of woodlands that you've ever seen
There's rabbits and quail and tender young snails
As brown as the seaweed on old rusty nails
 
There's fireflies dancing in the cool evening breeze
There's love and romancin' as nice as you please
There's otters and frogs and spotted ground hogs
And wiley old weasels in rotted out logs
 
There's rivers of rainbow and grey mountain trout
And little dark holes where the varmints hang out
There's foxes and hares in traps and in snares
And lots of bald eagles so you'd better take care
 
So if you've got the time and you'd like to pass by
Come down around midnight and give us a try
We'll show you the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen to see

Love Is Reason

My breath was coming fast
And as i make a start
You turn to go
Oh, oh
I'll do what you want me to
I'll cry at the thought of the loss of a heart

Love is reason
Love is reason
Love is reason
Love is reason enough

My morals are changing fast
I told you it wouldn't last
You turn and go
Oh, oh
I'll be what you want me to be
I'd die at the thought of the loss of your heart

Love is reason
Love is reason
Love is reason
Love is reason enough

(Repeated)

Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine

She hides in an attic concealed on a shelf
Behind volumes of literature based on herself
And runs across the pages like some tiny elf
Knowing that it's hard to find
Stuff way back in her mind
Winds up spending all of her time
Trying to memorize every line
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Sweet lady of death wants me to die
So she can come sit by my bedside and sigh
And wipe away the tears from all my friends eyes
Then softly she will explain
Just exactly who was to blame
For causing me to go insane
And finally blow out my brain
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Well you know that it's a shame and a pity
You were raised up in the city
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways
Ah 'bout country ways.
 
The joy of life she dresses in black
With celestial secrets engraved in her back
And her face keeps flashing that she's got the knack
But you know when you look into her eyes
All she's learned she's had to memorize
And the only way you'll ever get her high
Is to let her do her thing and then watch you die
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Now she's the one who gives us all those magical things
And reads us stories out of the I Ching
Then she passes out a whole new basket of rings
That when you put on your hand
Makes you one of the Angel Band
And gives you the power to be a man
But what it does for her you never quite understand
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Well you know that it's a shame and a pity
You were raised up in the city
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways
Oh 'bout country ways, oh 'bout country ways
Yeah about country ways, oh country ways ...
 

Things Can Only Get Better

We're not scared to lose it all
Security throw through the wall
Future dreams we have to realize
A thousand skeptic hands
Won't keep us from the things we plan
Unless we're clinging to the things we prize

And do you feel scared, I do
But I won't stop and falter
And if we threw it all away
Things can only get better

Treating today as though it was
The last, the final show
Get to sixty and feel no regret
It may take a little time
A lonely path, an uphill climb
Success or failure will not alter it

And do you feel scared, I do
But I won't stop and falter
And if we threw it all away
Things can only get better
...

Wanderer

In my mind
Foreign lands
Followed lines
On my hands
Tasted earth
Touched the skies
Swam the pools
Of my eyes
 
People talked
In their fear
Rumours always
Whispered here
Where and why,
From what shore
Who was I
Searching for
 
You can call me worshiper
You can call me follower
But I’m just a wanderer
In search of my lover
You can call it foolish
A kind of madness
But I’m just a wanderer
In search of my lover
 
Pushed and pulled
Through these worlds
Winding roads
I Crossed & curled
Pain & love
Hope & fear
In between
All unclear
 
Drunk on time,
Spin my thoughts
States of mind
Turning doors
Ask me now
Who I am
Turn your back
Or take my hand
 
You can call me worshiper
You can call me follower
But I’m just a wanderer
In search of my lover
You can call it foolish
A kind of madness
But I’m just a wanderer
In search of my lover
 
There’s a fire calling me
Burning me
Leading me
In to ecstasy
 
[You can call me worshiper
You can call me follower
But I’m just a wanderer
I’m search of my love]
 
[Round round round round round round round round]
