Every drummer is a born drummer
Every saint is a formless saint
Every walk is a morning opened
Every drummer is a born drummer
Every day the undertow pulls you
Every day you rise above it
Every drummer feels beautiful rhythm in the core of his bones
Effortless. Loving. Expressive. Joyous. Beautiful.
Every drummer is a born drummer
Can you believe me?
Will I make you cry?
Every time I see you you make me want to cry
Every drummer is a born drummer

Track Name: Give to the People
Give to the people that give back to you

Lost in silhouettes you are, chased into the morning
Humbled through regrets you start, to make out what is forming
All along it's the wolves I wanted, the wolves I wanted to know
Sending messages to soon be haunted they follow me wherever I go

Give to the people that give back to you

Bibles riding through the absent minds of city dwellers
Synchronistic patterns lie, enormous in their splendor
Then the ocean's washing through your haven
when your body is craving the blues
Can you meet me where the enemy's waiting?
He's under the basement you choose

Give to the people that give back to you

Aim for light

I'm on the Level up, he's on the scaffold………….huh?
Track Name: Everlasting Breath
Everlasting breath
Into eternal sleep
Fall into a song
That's never meant to be
Can you hold my head?
To where the grass is green
Fortunes to be read
Meadows never seen
Listen to the dead
Mesmerized and free
Moving through the bread
Moving indiscreet
Taking off your hat
Cause now it's time to see
All that lays before
In the oceans of your dreams
Nothing is ignored
That's how it ought to be
Final in it's form
The long-loved melody



Jeopardize the norm
With everything you'll be
Undermining storms
That keep you in between
The absence that is born
The absence that can't be
Anything you've worn
Anything you've seen
Track Name: In Your Fears
I send you back over your birthday card
I know it's already late
Blow out the candles your working hard
To master all the rhythms of fate

We could be so happy in our own backyard
Playing with the frogs and the snakes
Folding up the lawn chairs only state-of-the-art
Buy you the world that a woman is dreaming of!

In your fears

Never in a hurry when the clouds are away
Feel the green grass comb through your toes
Spring is in a flurry and my heart is overwhelmed as the walls and the ceilings fold and enclose

In your fears

Come closer to the fire
It's what you've long desired

And banish all your screaming
The innocence of dreaming

You send me back into space
Just when I thought you'd replace
Unfolding mountains for miles
I guess they keep me in shape
Another minute to rise
Through all this smoke and disguise
Make me the lamb of your love
I'm your man to be loved
Your wings are always divine
Here in this ripple in time

Look for me now, you won't find me anywhere

Dream girls crash and burn when they hit reality
Track Name: Amazing
Cuz you're so lovely and the way you are
is like a birthmark on my soul
You'll never know the way I feel for you
and how it's so out of control
And yes it's true that what I'm trying to do
is to take you back for my own
You make me feel AMAZING
Yes it's true
I wanna feel AMAZING
Yes I do

You've got one more chance to leave me in this womb
No I, won't take the chance with what you're trying to do
And if you follow starlight cascading to the moon
Then you can be the darling that's deep within in my view

There's nothing I could say to take you back this time
Nothing that I could do, to help your soul rewind
And when the time has come for you to feel estranged
I'll give you back the love all of which I've gained

Cuz you're so lovely and the way you are
is like a birthmark on my soul
You'll never know the way I feel for you
and how it's so out of control
And yes it's true that what I'm trying to do
is to take you back for my own
You make me feel AMAZING
Yes it's true
I wanna feel AMAZING
Yes I do

By God! Can you give me, one more precious night
That way the battles fought are won without a fight
The beauty that overtakes me is waiting to be known
Can you liberate me from the powers of your throne?

Cuz you're so lovely and the way you are
is like a birthmark on my soul
You'll never know the way I feel for you
and how it's so out of control
And yes it's true that what I'm trying to do
is to take you back for my own
You make me feel AMAZING
Yes it's true
I wanna feel AMAZING
Yes I do

I wanna feel……….you make me feel…………
Track Name: Maniac
Through the years I've made it on this land
It's not impossible but the blisters on my hands
Take me away from the wife I love the best
I give it everything I got to fatten up the nest

Save save America, can you save America?
Save save America, who can save America?

In my time, I had a different life
Full of all these promises to keep my spirits high
But then it cut me like a knife
Everything that came before was but a whistle, in my mind

Save save America, can you save America?
Save save America, who can save America?

Save save the maniac, can you save the maniac?
Save save the maniac, who can save the maniac?
Track Name: Sailor Song
Maybe then I'll sail away
To an island that you know
Maybe then my love has grayed
And my hairs have all grown old

Listen to the gramophone
That your mother used to play
It was such a long time ago
When the muses still held sway

Moving towards my destiny
as the Little Dipper dies
When at night it's hard to see
what is raging through the tides

Before Noah's Ark, had left me in this state
You were not the movie star
That the world has seen today

You're just the most beautiful
woman that I knew
Running circles round those sailor boys
who wanted to be with you

And then you had to ask me why
I do the things I do
It's because the love I had
well all of it was true

So I sail away on this lonely night
And I make my presence known
And surely much is lost
in the waves and the undertow

And I tell you sweetly - like my Daddy did
that everyone you know
Is the master of his fate
and the wings he can choose to grow

But calling silently as hate
is the weight of the undertow
