Track Name: Happier Sooner
(well i) guess that im getting older
(but i) never know if im getting wiser
(coz the) world is spinnin' a little too fast
(and im) never really havin a blast

(so i) take on to the piano
(let out) everything that im holdin on to
(coz im) one with the music when im strikin the keys
(and im) feelin like the knees of the bees

(so) find yourself a happy place
(i) paint a picture of a lake
(and) fill the space with notes you play
(and) everything just comes together

(so i) guess that im getting older
(and ill) never know if im getting wiser
(but i) know where to go to feel better
(and i) know i'll be happier sooner
Track Name: Polaroid Love
. raspberries at the break of dawn
. (as) mulberries fall onto the lawn
. sun rising so you wake and yawn
. sun rising and the day is on

save it on a polaroid and take a little hit of love

. gone fishin by the wonder lake
. meditation sweet as chocolate cake
. reel it in after the sturgeon's hooked
. (he) took the bait the upon a fateful look

save it on a polaroid and take a little hit of love
Track Name: Zen Archive
keep a little journal
(of) all of your thoughts
(it's) something you can go to
(when) you're feeling lost

(put) pen onto the paper
(don't) type it all up
(just) isolate your senses
(and) channel it forth

tip-toeing away
(is) how we spend the day
(you) make a small misstep
(can't) tell if it's ok

tip-toeing away
(a) journey that you roam
(yer) losing sight of trees
(yer) losing sight of home

keep a little journal
(of) all that you see
(draw) something of a picture
(if) you are so keen

(put) pen onto the paper
(no) phone in command
(just) channel your emotions
(to the) palm of your hand

tip-toeing away
(is) how we spend the day
(you) make a small misstep
(can't) tell if it's ok

tip-toeing away
(a) journey that you roam
(yer) losing sight of trees
(yer) losing sight of home
Track Name: Where Does The Wind Come From?
.. where does the wind come from in summertime?
.. what is the force that starts the chain?
.. flap of the butterfly effect in you
.. spread of the wings amidst the rain

.. (and) if the power blows you down
(you'll) feel perplexed and looking 'round
.. (just) flow against the breeze from time to time

.. where does the snow come from in wintertime?
.. (i) bet it's a place of mortal sin
.. keepin you in the walls of solitude
.. reaching your wings, a glass of gin

.. (and) if the power blows you down
(you'll) feel perplexed and looking 'round
.. (just) flow against the breeze from time to time
Track Name: Skipping Stones
(skippin) stones in the park on a saturday eve'
(not a) care through all the earth
(skippin) class for the grass on a sunny ol' day
(not a) care for what it's worth

.. when all of the buildings fall
(or) if you lose it all
(just) skip a stone and feel it hit the
water

(tellin) tales of a time that was simple and fun
(not a) problem here to run
(singin) songs of ideals we aspire to reach
(with a) cabin by the beach

.. when all of the buildings fall
(or) if you lose it all
(just) skip a stone and feel it hit the
water
Track Name: Jupiter And Back
jupiter and back, a spaceman's eager journey
wisdom in the sky, the stars ain't got no worry
shooting through the void, i wouldnt doubt the rush now
supernova vibe, i wouldnt keep it hush now

hello world im, gliding homeward
time dilation moves you forward
dont forget me when you're older
dont forget me when im younger

jupiter and back, it takes a couple lightyears
let me see the map, it's floating over my ears
shooting through the void, but feeling at a stand still
warbling around, i think i took the wrong pill

hello world im, gliding homeward
time dilation moves you forward
dont forget me when you're older
dont forget me when im younger
Track Name: Biking In The Park
we are biking in the
park; it's getting very
dark; i guess we oughtta
go on home now

but the night has just be-
gun; so what if there's no
sun; the moonlight is e-
nough for singing

la la la la la la la, how the merrigo-
round goes round and round and goes round again like
la la la la la la la, how the merrigo-
round goes round and round and round

i am never getting
tired; im only getting
wired; so ask me in a
couple hours

now there's urgency a-
foot; no wiser people
could; dismount the need to
be awake and

la la la la la la la, how the merrigo-
round goes round and round and goes round again like
la la la la la la la, how the merrigo-
round goes round and round and round
Track Name: Inner Eye
.. inner eye . seein things that i cant shake from my ol' mind
.. word of wise . sayin things that i should listen to

(but) there's another half that's ruling me like the england kings did
long ago; i dont wanna know

.. inner eye . leading me to places i have never gone
.. word of wise . taking chances with my fragile self
Track Name: When You Dream
, when you dream
(you) think about the people you love

, when you're cold
(you) put the dreams inside of your glove

(so) tuck yourself in, and let yourself be free of the world
(so) when you arise, you'll feel much more refreshed than before

, when you dream
(you're) still afraid that you're gonna fall

(be)coz when you dream
(you) rarely know you're dreamin' at all

(so) tuck yourself in, and let yourself be free of the world
(so) when you arise, you'll feel much more refreshed than before

hey, when you're dreamin' dont forget about me
aid in your comfort, and just set yourself free
Track Name: Lake Meditations
i was nothing on the soil
i was left to fuss and toil
then i found a special chime
peace and freedom all the time

lake meditations
