    No Man's Land
    3:34
    In these hard and troubled days
    You feel lost and betrayed
    You’re surrounded by fear,
    Sorrow and pain
    Feels like this whole world’s going insane

    And you stare at your TV
    The endless refrain
    Of liars and cheats, thieves and greed
    And you search the horizon
    You don’t understand
    How this dream became a no man’s land

    And we’ll all go together
    Hand in hand
    Yes we’ll all go together
    Through the no man’s land

    In these hard and troubled days
    You feel lost and betrayed
    You’re surrounded by fear,
    Sorrow and pain
    Feels like this whole world’s going insane

    And you stare at your TV
    The endless parade
    Of liars and cheats, thieves and greed
    And you search the horizon
    You don’t understand
    How this dream became a no man’s land

    Steal Your MInd
    5:03
    When the voice of evil whispers in your ear
    Will you remember or listen to your fear
    These fortunate sons with privilege and pride
    Will you accept or will you deny
    Don’t be surprised
    Don’t be surprised

    When he shows you everything that you ever wanted to know
    And then he steals your mind

    Then he shows you everything that you ever wanted to know
    And then he steals your mind

    Puts it under lock, hides it in the forest by the place where you walk
    Sings like a bird, creaks like a tree
    Don’t you worry friend this is the land of the free
    Don’t you want to be free
    Don’t you want to be free

    When he shows you everything that you ever wanted to know
    And then he steals your mind
    Then he shows you everything that you ever wanted to know
    And then he steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind

    When the voice of evil whispers in your ear
    Will you remember or listen to your fear
    Will you recognize the madness in those eyes
    Will you accept or will you deny
    Don’t be surprised
    Don’t be surprised

    When he shows you everything that you ever wanted to know
    And then he steals your mind
    When he shows you everything that you ever wanted to know
    And then he steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    When he shows you everything that you ever wanted to know
    And then he steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind
    Steals your mind

    Prisoner
    5:30
    I am a prisoner of endless sorrow
    Though my chains you’ll never find
    Oh dear jailer I beg your mercy
    For I’m a prisoner of my own mind

    The road to my salvation
    Is a dangerous road, fraught with trial
    For all alone, against temptation
    I am a wretched man, of little will

    Oh Mercy me
    Set me free
    Set me free
    Mercy me
    My whole life
    Is a mystery
    My crime, my misery
    Set me free

    If you believe in god’s mercy
    (?) Pure of heart and sincere
    Then say a prayer for one less worthy
    For I fear my time is near
    Oh set me free
    Mercy me
    Set me free
    Mercy me
    My whole life
    Is a mystery
    My crime, my misery
    Mercy me
    Mercy me
    Set me free
    Mercy me
    My whole life
    Is a mystery
    My crime, my misery

    I am a prisoner of my own mind

    Colour and Rhyme
    3:58
    Take me up
    Take me down
    Take me all around
    I’m lost in your crowd

    I hear the things that you say to embarrass me
    The games you play just ain’t fair

    You laugh
    At all of my questions
    The neckties that I wear
    And it’s been said
    That all of my waiting
    Will get me nowhere

    Cause I love when you talk
    In colour and rhyme
    You’re breaking my heart
    You’re changing my mind

    Yes I love when you talk
    In colour and rhyme
    You’re breaking my heart
    You’re changing my mind

    Sun-filled rooms
    Warm afternoons
    Nowhere to go
    I got nothing to lose
    Well I got nothing, nothing but time for you
    Time for you

    But I love when you talk
    In colour and rhyme
    You’re breaking my heart
    You’re changing my mind

    Yes I love when you talk
    In colour and rhyme
    You’re breaking my heart
    You’re changing my mind

    Miss You
    3:37
    I miss the way that you hold me
    I miss the way our breath entwines
    Sun sets red behind your head
    I miss the quiet in your eyes

    In my heart I know what you know
    I just don’t trust what I see
    Too many times I chased love blind
    Too many times deceived

    I feel myself slipping away
    It gets harder and harder each day
    I can’t change what’s past or gone
    But I know where I did you wrong

    Autumn trees are changing
    Cold north wind cries
    I miss you when the leaves are falling
    I miss you most when the snow flies

    And I feel myself slipping away
    It gets harder and harder each day
    I can’t change what’s past or gone
    But I know where I did you wrong

    It gets harder and harder each day
    It gets colder and colder each day
    And I feel myself slipping away

    Alaska
    5:32
    Up in Alaska they’re looking for crude
    In the once-forgotten land
    Of the migrating caribou
    Across the land of the wind and snow
    They’ll build their roads, drill their holes

    And through the Arctic sea their ships will pass
    Where Mackenzie’s froze

    These men in their mansions
    Corrupted with power
    Where the bright lights shine all night
    In their office towers
    And the cold air pours through the long summer hours

    For these men of high esteem
    And little valour
    In a land where you can buy
    Or sell an election
    These good christian men
    Need their armies to protect them
    And everybody knows a soldier just wants to go home

    Up in Alaska they’re looking for crude
    In the once-forgotten land
    Of the migrating caribou
    ‘Cuz the tvs are growing dim
    In southern California
    The tvs are growing dim
    In southern California
    The tvs are growing dim
    In southern California

    Glory Oh
    3:59
    She came a-riding on her trusted mare
    Eyes as blue as her cheeks were fair
    The bringer of light with her golden hair
    She came a-riding on her trusted mare

    She slept o’er the valley high on a hill
    The rain it fell gently and her soul did fill
    She knew the wind’s whisper and the sad whippoorwill
    She slept o’er the valley high on a hill

    Glory oh
    Glory oh
    She slept o’er the valley high on a hill

    She walked through the forest, meadow and glen
    All of god’s creatures knew her as friend
    She learned from the trees how to be strong and how to bend
    She walked through the forest, meadow and glen

    Glory oh
    Glory oh
    She walked through the forest, meadow and glen

    The love that she knows fills her with courage and fear
    Like a knight’s armour that is easily pierced
    Like the wild roses that are fragile and fierce
    The love that she knows fills her with courage and fear

    Glory oh
    Glory oh
    The love that she knows fills her with courage and fear

    Glory oh
    Glory oh
    She came a-riding
    She came a-riding
    She came a-riding on her trusted mare

    Aphrodite Rose
    1:19
    It’s from this love Aphrodite rose
    Like a song she’s always known
    Deep in her soul where nobody goes
    Nobody knows

    High Meadow
    4:14
    She came back from the high meadow
    You could tell something strange had happened
    She held the sunshine in her eyes
    The way a fire burns deep in the canyon

    She said wild flowers are proof enough
    Proof enough of a higher power
    And if that ain’t enough
    Look at that old barn
    Look at that old barn
    Look at that old barn
    Still standing

    She passes by like fingers of fire
    Leaving no trace
    No trace behind her

    She said wild flowers are proof enough
    Proof enough of a higher power
    And if that ain’t enough
    Look at that old barn
    Look at that old barn
    Look at that old barn
    Still standing

    If You Go
    4:03
    If you go take your picture from the wall
    ‘cuz I don’t want to see your smiling face
    Every day with you so far away

    And every night I’d lie awake where we both used to sleep
    Hear the words we both used to speak
    But you’d be miles away

    Where are you going
    Why must you leave
    ‘Cuz I’d trade in all my tomorrows
    If you just would say you love me today

    If you leave I admit I’d be a mess for a while
    Chasing trouble, drinkin’ hard
    Just to hide from the pain

    Where are you going
    Why must you leave
    ‘Cuz I’d trade in all my tomorrows
    If you just would say you love me today

    In The Reflections
    6:17
    There’s a ripple on the water
    Sun sets behind the trees
    And in the reflections
    They both meet
    They both meet

    Low across the water
    Grey crane flies by
    And in the reflections
    I see lilies in the sky
    See lilies in the sky

    In my lullaby
    On the wings of a dragonfly
    Crimson clouds in a purple sky
    In a purple sky

    There’s a canoe out on the water
    Such a pretty green
    And in the reflections
    I see the dreamer
    And the dream
    The dreamer
    And the dream
