Track Name: Rock Song
I've seen better mud than this
that brontosaurus print was pretty hard to miss
and if I wait, eventually, it might come around again
and I'm gonna be right here

Now I remember from way back
a smokin' hot piece of ash
from upper Pangea
and if I wait, eventually, it might come around again
and I'm gonna be right here

but she didn't wait till the oceans left
and she should have waited

but after the way I've been shown
there's no other way than what I know
and after the waves come and go
I'll be right here on my own

I've seen better stars than this
back when Orion's Belt was just a little to the left
and if I wait, eventually, it might come around again
and I'm gonna be right here

(chorus)
Track Name: If I Say (Let Go)
There comes a moment
when you think you got it under contol
a second later, there's a moment
when you realize you don't, at all
I know these struggles you hide
that's why I'm still by your side

but if I say that you're not on your own
if I say that you'll never be alone
then could you just let go?

Wait just a minute here
and let me say what needs to be said
else you will miss it
while the war keeps going on in your head
you gotta loosen your grip
I never said you had to commit

(chorus)

suddenly the wind's not blowing in
and it's ok to climb back down again

and if I say that you're not on your own
if I say that you'll never be alone
then could you just
say that you're not on your own
if I say that you'll never be alone
then could you just let go
could you just let go
could you jest let go
Track Name: Fly Mary
Don't listen, dear,
to the things they try to press on you
it's not worth wasting your time
you can't do that much searching
without going blind

some special message
that they lost between the paragraphs
that they didn't even write
just imagine what they'd see
if they'd open their eyes
but they're never gonna open their eyes

so go, fly, Mary
you no longer have to roam
good bye, Mary
July's sweet breeze will bring you home

They're peering in at you through broken windows
and they turn their backs when you go outside
and yet they're treating you like
you're the one with something to hide

and they can't help it if they think it's kinda funny that
you wear black all the time
just imagine what they'd see if they'd open their eyes
but they're never gonna open their eyes

(chorus)

You sit alone in your room
when silver buttons fall
the elephant still likes you
Track Name: John Says (Gideon)
I'm sure there's a lot to be said
for the ones that stood their ground
cause there's not that much to give away
you are my moment, you are
the one thing that I've found
who makes it all ok

Gideon, the stars were right
for maybe today, or maybe tonight
Gideon, you'll pull us through
maybe with time to spare
for you

I know that the day will come
when you may not understand
why I hold you up so high
when I look down at my feet I see only land
but behind you, I see sky

Gideon, the stars were right
for maybe today, or maybe tonight
Gideon, you'll pull us through
maybe with time to spare
or maybe they're not prepared
for you

I won't try so hard

Gideon, the stars were right
for maybe today, or maybe tonight
Gideon, you'll pull us through
maybe with time to spare
or maybe they're not prepared
but all the world is there
for you
Track Name: Caroline
I knew since I came awake
that today was a special day
yea, it was
I left the office in a blur
she knows I'm coming home to her
yea, she does

and it's a shame that nobody knows this thing that we got
but we'll be the same way no matter if they know it or not
so it doesn't really matter cause

Me and Caroline
we're gonna take the car down the road
we'll go wherever she wants to go
and we'll make it home in time
to turn the radio way down low
and baby, we'll pour the wine
just me and Caroline

I took a turn on 23rd and I was singing with the birds
in the trees
I made a QuickStop at the store
to bring some flowers home before
we roll free
