Track Name: Superstar?
I see a world go by again
Excess and wealth so undeserved
As if they think
Think that they're immune to everything

Looking down from the hilltop haze
Never seen better days
So we lap up what they give
They're the superstar

Tell you what is right and what is wrong
As they prance around in a purple thong
Can't tell you why
Why what you think and know is wrong

Oh look! A washed-up celebrity
Never seems she meant that much to me
"It's not what you'll do
It's what have you done for me lately?"
Track Name: Great Blue Sky
I see the world drift fast past my eye
The great Black River flows right on by
Seasons change summer cools to fall
The big old sun shines down on it all

As if the river knew which way to go
Swirling currents force the salmon flow
I've seen it with my eyes - this world and the sky

Gaze around the forest in a dream
The cedar floor sprouts mushrooms near a stream
Deep inside I feel I know my way
Clear is the sky on a bright autumn day

As if the river knew which way to go
Swirling currents force the salmon flow
I've seen it with my eyes - this world and the sky

The Great Blue Sky
Track Name: Sword in Hand
Walking down that road again
Wondering where to go
Something real and firm again
Maybe just for show
Maybe just for show

Back to the days when the world was young
So young
Back to a time when all the trials and tribulations
Were dealt with a sword in your hand

I don't want to realize
Where this all will lead
A great big flood to wash away
Humans shall recede
Humans shall recede
Track Name: Life and Everything
Looking outward to the world
Knowing it is real
Keeping up with the speed of time
Hoping I can feel

Love is the answer
To all the questions
Of life and everything

To some the answer is forty-two
But I think there's more
No matter how you play the game
There really is no score

Love is the answer
To all the questions
Of life and everything

Think of times that have gone by
Remembering the fun
A never ending kaleidoscope
Looking for the sun
Track Name: In The Sky
Don't know where to begin
Maybe this starts at the end
A mystery passed down through all time
Part of nature's grand design

Something is flying high in the sky
Many have seen them go by
I want to believe - but then, some would heed
Hidden the proof that we need

Late at night - 3 A.M.
Strangeness on it's way again
Take me away for experiment
Didn't even know that I had went

Something is flying high in the sky
Many have seen them go by
I want to believe - but then, some would heed
Hidden the proof that we need

A mystery passed down through all time
Part of nature's grand design
Track Name: Come Up Short
We seem to live out lives of which
We were not going for
Seemingly lost at sea and looking for
A friendly port
We ponder everything
And still we seem to come up short

Won't find out all the answers
In just one day or lifetimes play
But still the joker laughs and
Plays his cards out in dismay
It freaked out everyone
So once again we come up short

Looking forward to the end
They say the grass is greener
But we can't see the other side

Forced into falling for the little things
That keep us bored
As if it is the best thing in our lives
We've never seen before
We forget everything
That's why we always come up short
Track Name: Big Betsy
Big Betsy drive me out of my mind
(Does that to me all the time)

Big Betsy is a friend of mine
(Never could leave her behind)

I know it's something that may sound strange
(Never seen a brain more deranged)

On second thought there was that time
(Never mind that story ain't right)

She has me thinking on life
And all the things not right
It's something we must fight

Big Betsy is a brutal girl
(She's a modern day hippie queen)

She has a thirst - she has a blast
(Moves real slow to make it last)

Not a beauty but that's okay
(Gets her rocks off anyway)

Plays a guitar that's out of whack
(Drives a sixty-six Pontiac)
Track Name: Life and Love
I just can't wait to see you
Though I know it's late
Everyone knows the feeling
Love won't hesitate

Knowing the feeling - hoping it's real
Stealing away from this life

See the world flowing into my eyes
And then filling my mind with
The wonders of life and love

Reaching outward for a moment
Hoping it will last
A time and space for every heartbeat
Life goes by so fast
Track Name: Darkness For An Age (Dulcimer Song of War)
Looking outward to lost years darkness for an age
Violence distilled with fear and weakness must engage

Pushing within ranks to the banks of Gods Eye
Flashing blades - blooded shields - a shrill battle cry

Warlords on the march
Fear within all hearts
Dying on the field
The brave never yield

Treading lightly, singing softly in the morning light
Finding solace - after a journey through the dead of night

A lightning crash, a blinding flash a storm unveils its fate
Before it's done and will is gone fighting shall abate

As evening creeps, a baby weeps a mother tends her son
Supple starlight, crooked moonlight a father comes undone
