Track Name: The Disenchantment Chord
The Disenchantment Chord

We sang of the warm hearts now hidden
in the days of open war
when escape was the only light missing
I saw Mona Lisa running on the shore

Dancing insane in the wind
on an ocean I’ll never know
she hides from me teardrops of reflection
and in me the anger overflows

(Chorus)
Bohemians on the loose
on a world we can not afford
the poet hides his noose
deep in the disenchantment chord

Now there’s the crypts of division
and the spotlight is on all our faults
but I remember dancing at the white house
long before this age of insults

Van Gogh saw his fury and
was paid after his time
now there’s no life left here to bury
and greed, my friends, is a crime

(Chorus)
Bohemians on the loose
on a world we can not afford
the poet hides his noose
deep in the disenchantment chord

She can no longer understand
this broken road I’m on
flights of fancy find me
hovering in the howling dawn

I know she has her life
and somehow I’ll have mine
But I really live when comes the day
she gives me her sweet time

(Chorus)
Bohemians on the loose
on a world we can not afford
the poet hides his noose
deep in the disenchantment chord

Keep me in mind don’t move me
to your spambox of rejection
I’ve sat here 20 years
preparing for connection

You don’t matter as much to others
as you always will to yourself
enjoy the ride keep prayers for mothers
and don’t hide upon the shelf

(Chorus)
Bohemians on the loose
on a world we can not afford
the poet hides his noose
deep in the disenchantment chord
Track Name: It Ain't Worth The Feeling
It Ain't Worth The Feeling

It ain't worth the feeling
being high all around
out of my mind
way off the ground
It ain't worth the feeling
when I come down
I really come down
and while the world goes to town
I sit here sick and it's a trick I say
another day wasted and I can't play
Give me a chance to dance dance dance
for a little bit of loving tonight

So I've got to be high
so I can have fun
so I can be dumb
so I can be young
What else is there when you do it all the time
make you feel alive
make you pretty flyI sit here sick and it's a trick I say
another day wasted and I can't play
Give me a chance to dance dance dance
for a little bit of loving tonight

(Bridge)
So tonight let's make it right
just you and I and nobody else
So tonight let's make it right
just you and I and nobody else

I sit here sick and it's a trick I say
another day wasted and I can't play
Give me a chance to dance dance dance
for a little bit of loving tonight
Track Name: Please Don't Make My Blue Sky Cry
Please Don't Make My Blue Sky Cry

Babe, I'd hate to see you go
You'd be happier I know
Blue is the feeling in the sky
Please don't make my blue sky cry

Leave me for another day
See if you will stay away
Wait for you one more time
Please don't make my blue sky cry

I'm trying to hang on to a love that I am falling in
I want to climb up to the sky but love won't let me in

Treat your lover real nice
Please take my sad advice
Wait for me one more time
Please don't make my blue sky cry

Babe, I'd hate to see you go
You'd be happier I know
Blue is the feeling in the sky
Please don't make my blue sky cry
Blue is the feeling in the sky
Please don't make my blue sky cry
Track Name: Big Old Train
Big Old Train

Big train can't you hear me calling?
Big train can't you hear me calling?
I'm coming to you and I'm feeling blue

Looking for a woman that needs a worried man
Looking for a woman that needs a worried man
Catch me when I fall in love again

Gotta get whiskey gotta get low
Gotta get whiskey gotta get low
Hop the southbound train in the ice and snow

Big train can't you hear me calling?
Big train can't you hear me calling?
I'm coming to you and I'm feeling blue

I have no money I have no pain
I have no money and I have no pain
Just to say goodbye to the big old train

Big train can't you hear me calling?
Big train can't you hear me calling?
I'm coming to you and I'm feeling blue
Track Name: Tundraland
Tundraland

Pick up the pickup been running on speed
Grizzled and drowsy never get to sleep
It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn

I give her another couple months or so
See if she cares or if she don’t anymore
It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn

Bridge:
Winter was cloudy rain never hides
it’s a killer of dust and of all dust abides
I can’t be running from the cobwebs inside
You only ever get one prime
so take me back to tundra land sometime

Money is good I’ve got lots of things
She only shares her heart when she sings
It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn

Been closed down don’t know how to say
all those things that true lovers say
It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn

(Bridge)

You can’t be here you can’t be home
keep on living whatever street you’re on
Strangers can become friends then strangers again
you’re there to be all alone
and somehow your story will be known.

Pick up the pickup been running on speed
Grizzled and drowsy never get to sleep
It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn
It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn
Track Name: I've Got You Ma
I've Got You Ma

It ain't so bad I've got you ma
When I'm feeling unloved and unheard and unknown
We don't have pa but I've got you ma

You can remind me what it's all about
in this world of deceit and boredom I can't be in doubt
We don't have pa but I've got you ma

And it's sad to leave you behind
The one who I still pine to find
I'm so sad to not be by your side
These years are flying by

Thank you for talking to me
When all day I cried inside
Trying to set my soul free when there's nowhere to go but hide
I'm glad you replied
Ma you're by my side

It ain't so bad I've got you ma
When I'm feeling unloved and unheard and unknown
We don't have pa but I've got you ma
Track Name: The Chances They Change Everyday
The Chances They Change Everyday

Like a star only destined to fade
You will recall all the debts left unpaid
waking by the sun or waking by the rain
you see the chances they change everyday
the chances they change everyday

She may love or she may turn away
She may feel or she may be astray
Waking by the sun
or waking by the rain
the chances they change everyday

Sometimes love the ocean
Sometimes love the hills
or the woods or the roads down in town
Sometimes love the world
or get my fill
feeling good laying low being nowhere bound

I am here and that I can't change
If I did life would turn strange
waking by the sun
or waking by the rain
the chances they change everyday
oh the chances they change everyday

Sometimes love the ocean
Sometimes love the hills
or the woods or the roads down in town
Sometimes love the world
or get my fill
feeling good laying low being nowhere bound

Like a star only destined to fade
You will recall all the debts left unpaid
waking by the sun or waking by the rain
you see the chances they change everyday
the chances they change everyday
Track Name: Poster Girl For Posture
Poster Girl For Posture

She talks about laying it on the line
and it's funny how we've been wasting time.
There's too much pain in her eyes
and there's nowhere to go but goodbyes
and I'm sad knowing there's no way to hide.

She can't tell that I'm not a fool for her
She can't tell I'm waiting for her word.
She can let me go back to the positively lonesome track
and I know it's time that I got back.

(chorus)
She's a poster girl for posture
and I'm so sad that I lost her
Years and years she's been gone on down the line
I still see her family
though she won't ever see me
and it's sad to mourn a love who's never died. x2

I see her and I wish for the past
Had her once and she'll never be back
Many years have come and gone
and what's the sense in moving on?
She's the only one who had my heart on track.

(chorus)
Track Name: Leaving For A Song Or Two
Leaving For A Song Or Two

I wish I knew what I could say
but I run away
I run away
You've met the only man who'll stay
you run away
you runaway.

(chorus)
I'm taking my time now writing this song for you
I'm throwing my sunshine in the air
and if you're sorry or sad
I'm leaving for a song or two
yeah yeah yeah

Maybe there's a bigger plan
to follow me
follow me
Maybe i'll prove you right again
so follow me
follow me.

(chorus x2)
Track Name: Awakening
Awakening - Dan Frechette

When eagles soar in your dreams
and chase away doubts of the young souls who now do you wrong.
Remember me, these yellow eyes do see where you belong.
The light will find what we need

Everywhere we'll be free and the winners will take us along
May the future be filled with the dreams that we see in the sun.

Find awakening - Find awakening
Suddenly seeing and suddenly being.
Awakening.

We reach as high as we see
but beyond what we see is a grace that is inside our souls
The less that you reach the more you can teach without goals.

Find awakening - Find awakening
Suddenly seeing and suddenly being.
Awakening

(solo)
Time is adrift with emotion
it lies in the soul on the ground.

Words of bittersweet emotion
someday in our wake may be found
in an abandoned sundown.

She'll cast all her lies into motion
and see how her shadow is cast

with a final tremendous explosion
all will be left in the past
she's vanishing fast.

Find awakening - Find awakening
Suddenly seeing and suddenly being.
Awakening.

(solo)
There's dangers in being elusive
when there's so much more we can say.

In our efforts to remain conclusive
we turn any story our way
into some game that will pay.

Don't trust the path of the winners.
Let your heart follow its sound.

Surrounded by corruption in sinners
and the gains they have lost are profound
in an abandoned sundow
Track Name: The Meaning Of The Light
The Meaning Of The Light

Old stagnant blood is dangerous
old broken dreams fly no more
the young stars they shine for eternity
old stars have long left the shore
do the stories add up for the haunted?
do the shadows face off for those lost?
do the sounds of the desert desert them
who only wish to be told of the cost?

She rides on radiant sunbeams
that rest on the smiles of their hearts
and she leads on the path and fears nothing
and looks to no lonesome ramparts
she finds abundance everlasting
but somehow she refuses to see
his heart is not won on abundance
his heart only dreams to be free

Lost another story staying silent
Lost another keeper staying strong
Held off another road to glory
They were proven all their certainties were wrong
Passed a guessing game on the highway
One they'd forgotten they were right
Following a destiny a reason
Only they could know the meaning of the light
Only they could know the meaning of the light

And he looks out to stories gone silent
strings whose vibrations have died
and memories whose questions are unanswered
unwavering love by his side
but yet in the darkness he wonders
and dreams of his passions denied
and forbidden and desperate he thunders
if he was set free he would ride
