Track Name: We Are Together
We Are Together © 2008



Well I could shout about it Call it by its name
But its everywhere And its in everything
I could scream out loud I could stomp my feet
But it’d do no good No it won’t change a thing

And I could laugh about it Throw my head back
From so deep inside Feel like my chest crack
And I could cry about it ‘Til my tears run dry
But I’ll be no closer to the answer The question why


We are together
We are together


Well I could sing about it In the softest voice
But next to its sweetness It would be just noise
You see the thing about it Is its always been
Just waiting in the wings For you to let in

Don’t want to fight about it Such a waste of time
So many better things We can do to unwind
So don’t be shy about it If you’re feeling blue
I can lift you up Shed some light on you


We are together
We are together


Now that we’ve talked about it Hope that you can see
There’s so much more Between you and me
Let’s throw our arms around it Open our mouths wide
Caress the whole universe Drink all the stars in the sky


We are together
We are together
Track Name: Joe
Joe ⓒ 2008

name, my name is joe
and i come from down in the valley ,from down in the valley below
my age, don't really know
but i've been older than most and younger than some i've known


a slave i have not been
but i've been close to a slave as any a man has been
my love, bent by the wind
for there's little thats stronger than the winds of sin


and so i go back to the place
where the fire burns the oil that's the reason that they came
and i cook and i clean
for the money to be made wherever uncle sam has been

my love i miss you so
and i've been longing for our home and dreaming of the snow
our girl begun to speak
and i'm terrified to think what she will ever say of me



fifteen days i've been riding this train and i feel like the end is near
at least been eight since i've seen a drop of rain and i can't even make a tear



name, my name is joe
and i come from down in the valley , down in the valley below
age, don't really know
but i've been older than most and younger than some i've known
Track Name: Lily's Party
Lily's Party © 2008


i've been to the river where the holy men go
climbed up the mountain barefoot in the snow
burned my face in the fiery wind
went skinny dipping where the crocodiles swim

tasted the nectar worm on my tongue
spread my love to every one
sat in shade of the bodhi tree
followed my guide to the big blue sea

bronzed my skin like a mayan king
touched the stone at the end of the ring
washed in the lake at the volcano's feet
all this and more just to feel complete


i could search the world for another fifty years
aint gonna find a better home then you've got right here


buy a big car build a high wall
make pretty damn sure that you got it all
with your trophy wife and your gifted school
with your hangers on to tell you that you're cool

well you cleaned up the park and you fenced off the beach
keep all the good shit just out of reach
have your helicopter take you uptown
but all my people are underground


you could search the world for another fifty years
aint gonna find a better home than you got right here


i sprinkled some seeds on the ground waited for the sun to come and bake
then i prayed up some rain to come down and watched the seeds turn into sprigs
sprigs become branches and branches are arms
and they are long and they are beautiful
all of my friends are right here i wanna put my arms around
let me throw my arms around you
Track Name: North Country
North Country ⓒ 2008

deep in the dark and the dewey woods
that's where i'd take you if i could
lay on a bed of eucalyptus leaves
reveal all the secrets that are still left in me

if you wanna see
i come from the north country , where the grass grows higher than the tallest weed
and if you put what's left of your trust in me
i will give you a reason, renew your belief

up on the ridge in the mount vision ponds
thats where go when we wanna get it on
meet in the middle, bagpipes in the breeze
peel away all the layers that are still left on me

if you wanna see
i come from the north country , where the grass grows higher than the tallest weed
and if you put what's left of your trust in me
i will give you a reason, renew your belief

over acorns and through butterflies
there's a path that leads to hearts desire
and from there we can walk all the way to shell beach
swim out far to the raft
lay in the sun shiver and laugh
look across at the brown rolling hills of bay ranch

come with me to the north country , where the grass grows higher than the tallest weed
and if you put what's left of your trust in me
i will give you a reason, renew your belief
Track Name: On A Sunday
On A Sunday © 2008

i thought that i had seen it all
held the future in my crystal ball
there was nothing left for me to learn
i was to old to fall in love
and way too cold to heat up
it only takes a second in the sun to get burned

december felt like it was cursed
january was even worse
it was the winter of my discontent
then through the dew drops i saw
you were smiling through the thaw
and i don't know where those clouds went


i met her on a sunday
took my breath away
now it's only monday
i can't wait another day


take back the things i thought i knew
and all the crap i learned in school
things are different since i found you
these laws which with we chose to live
were made to break
were made to give


one thing stays the same
without love you'll lose the game
and if you always dull the pain
you miss the sun days from the rain


make sure you pack some extra shoes
to replace the souls that we've abused
there'll be hell to pay when this bill comes due
if your not helping with the climb
then your aiding its decline
but it's so much fun falling with you


i met her on a sunday
took my breath away
now it's only monday
i can't wait another day
Track Name: For Tonight (Creepy)
For Tonight (Creepy) © 2008


for tonight under light of moon
bright as day, reflect off of you
hold my head, arch your back
'til i feel you break, then you break again


now come on down, look me in the eye
lip to mouth, as our hands slide on down
don't remember where you come from
but for tonight we'll share the same tongue


we have got so little time together
but there is still so much for us to do
lets spend each moment wrapped up in each other
start with me and i will end with you


take my hand, walk with me
down to the shore get your feet in the sea
hold my head upon your chest
let me taste the salt from your sweat


come tomorrow, you can leave
or maybe stay, either way it's allright with me
but for tonight, you must fall in love
any less won't be enough


we have got so little time together
but there is still so much for us to do
lets spend each moment wrapped up in each other
start with me and i will end with you
Track Name: Fire Jumpin'
Fire Jumpin' © 2008


party at my house bout a mile from here
gonna be fun gonna be some beer
come on now there's room in the back
hop on in bring your sister too


Saturday night other side of the hill
not much choice when it comes to thrills
but im not a bad guy and i got some good weed
so if youre cool with that firejump with me


all the rednecks do it (all the fish in the great big ocean)
and the hippies too (all the birds up in top of the trees)
all the hillbillies do it (every one got the same old notion)
how bout me and you (something similar to you and to me)


when i touch you there does it feel alright?
when i move in close and i look you in the eye
swear i wont bite just a little nip
just a pinch of skin from the top of your lip


all the rednecks do it (all the fish in the great big ocean)
and the hippies too (all the birds up in top of the trees)
all the hillbillies do it (every one got the same old notion)
how bout me and you (something similar to you and to me)


and i'm working up the courage to ask
if you'll lay in the tall brown grass
i swear i wont go to fast
i want this thing to last


at the end of the night the only thing left
are the dealers selling pills and the dealers selling meth
party in the back business in the front
gotta keep your neck from getting burned in the sun


all the rednecks do it (all the fish in the great big ocean)
and the hippies too (all the birds up in top of the trees)
all the hillbillies do it (every one got the same old notion)
how bout me and you (something similar to you and to me)
