Track Name: Sidewalk Ecology
Who are you and what's your name
Do our colors run the same
Have you had those dreams and nightmares too?
Can you hear or see me now
As these strangers all avow
Of some truth they could not ever know

Yes I know I've seen things that feel complete
What then is my role in this while walking on these streets

Are we some small part of it whatever it is
Why create a question with an answer that's forbid?

I have felt such joy I do not regret
Still I seek the source and why I feel doomed to forget

Who are you and what's your name
Do our colors run the same
Have you had those dreams and nightmares too
Are we some small part of it
Whatever it is
Why create a question with an
Answer that is hid

Old majestic tree you bear no fruit that I can see
Still I lay my head and wait in silence underneath
Although peace and calm collect and settle over me
Still plagued by these questions of sidewalk ecology
Track Name: Fables
Tomorrow I will be a better man
Dreams of halcyon days lie in my hands
Knowing all the while you'll understand
When my feet get caught in this quicksand

i may not hurt or kill
Rely on my goodwill
But am i passing up
Some greater good

Oh how could it remain
Good conscience with no pain
When all I've ever wanted's for myself
And will it be enough
To live for peace and love
While demons pound their fists on foreign doors

Tomorrow I will be a better man
Say it if you please or if you can
The breaking of the dawn it has a plan
Will I follow or will I just stand

While tales of wrong and right
Are whispered through the night
Old Aesop, is he grinning in the morn'?

Oh how could it remain
Good conscience with no pain
When all I've ever wanted's for myself
And will it be enough
To live for peace and love
While demons pound their fists on foreign doors

Maxims I held close
Remembered in last throes
What is left to do
But wait and see

Oh how could it remain
Good conscience with no pain
When all I've ever wanted's for myself
And will it be enough
To make it 'cross the cusp
And hear those wild voices call my name
Track Name: Who I Want To Be
Sometimes I think that maybe we
Joke far too much for our own good
It's just too easy not to say
All of the things that we should

You know sometimes I lose my head
I talk too much or fall for sin
But even in these darker times
Your laugh's enough to do me in

And when we find ourselves alone
The walls begin to melt away
Before you leave from here for good
Will I find the courage to say

I'm only who I want to be

When I'm with you
