Track Name: Infinite Destination
Desert sunrise six twenty one
Rising just like fate
Baby you know this is never the end
If you trust the world

All I can do is smile
As you soften your eyes
And draw curves with your questions
‘Til there’s nothing left to say but someday

Infinite destination
You’re every dream I ever had
We’re just pilgrims dancing unstuck in time
Infinite destination
Any life you can have
Dancing forever free from time

The future has its enemies, too
They don’t like people like me; they don’t like people like you
In other words, you got a beautiful attitude

I never take it for granted
How your eyes reverse time
Soft as day breaks and fades the night away

Infinite destination
You’re every dream I ever had
We’re just pilgrims dancing unstuck in time
Infinite destination
Every life you ever had
Dancing forever free from time

Infinite destination
(You’re) every dream I ever have
Just a pilgrim dancing unstuck in time
Track Name: Long Road Ahead
we got a long road ahead
settle down. settle back. settle in.
don’t you know that we’re gonna have to work until we’re dead?
we’ve got such a long road ahead

full of naked feelings
illumination
you know all those things you just can’t teach

but there you go again
laughing at real life
i guess that’s the way things will always be

it’s been a long slow descent
energy lost. energy found. energy spent.
you know it takes years to make an overnight collapse
it’s been a long slow descent

we got a long road ahead
don’t look down. don’t look back. don’t fit in.
let’s have the last good time with what little we got left
we got a long road ahead

screw cynicism
and useless language
you know, all those things we say instead of what we mean

but there you go again
laughing at real life
i guess that’s the way things will always be
Track Name: ok
You never know just how long you have
Before you go
Away

So take back life; hide it from view
It will only be us and
the wind

Times are down but we’re ok
Lines are down but we’re ok
We’re ok.

You never know just how many times
You get to say
Hello

Come out with me take the f-train
Into the night
We’ll disappear

Times are down but we’re ok
Lines are down but we’re ok
We’re ok.

When you send light into the world
It scatters and reflects
But it never dies
Track Name: Echo Lake
gotta get out of echo lake
is it too much to ask
to challenge your fate?
gotta get out of echo lake

gotta get out before it’s too late
it’s never enough to know
to jump aboard that train.

schedule me some piece of mind
let me fall into easy times
cover me with memory
til i’m blind

gotta let out all the collar seams
it’s a mouthful to swallow
in someone else’s dreams
i got to get out as real as this may seem

gotta get out of echo lake
it’s too much
to ask
to re-sign your fate
gotta get out before it’s too late

everything just fades
Track Name: Words Of Release
Hey
I need you to bail me out again
I don’t know that I can
I’ve got artifacts from a war I need to give to a widow

Hey
You said you’d be waiting home for me
Now I don’t know where you are
And I can’t tell the distance from the echoes

(I’ve got) Words of love
(I’ve got) Words of peace
And when she reads these words
They will be her release

You
Brace for the future you don’t know
Long ago you told your friends you’d never change

I
Carry these remains
Rushing forward on a train
I can’t say that they’ll ever reach their destination

Now
I’m leaving once again
Papers have been sent
Time has been spent

(I’ve got) Words of love
(I’ve got) Words of peace
And when she reads these words
They will be her release
Track Name: Dream #3: Austin
"Tonight I’m leaving this big city and all its bullsh*t,
Where my friends have to clear their names
And the snow has to clear itself.
I want to drive all night with some music loud,
Fly away on a song,
Hold you in my arms and get to a place
Where nothing goes wrong.

There's magic in this crazy world that's sometimes hard to see
And there's times I drift away in an Austin dream."

"I got resolutions to get myself out of this dirty town
B/c the snow is all turnin’ black while all the trains melt down.
I don’t want you wondering just how long it’s been
Since it’s been you
Taking that lakefront road, taking every risk
Just to feel something new

There’s magic in this mad mad mad world you see
Drifting away in an Austin dream."

"I think they like us there because we’re from far away."
"That’s why we’re always welcome back
And why we really shouldn’t stay."
"We got a three-day drive through desert nights
And a couple thousand songs,
But we’re gonna write one more and get one more night
Where nothing goes wrong."

"There’s magic in this crazy world you just need to believe
That you can live and breathe and die inside a dream.

You see I found myself in Austin that new years eve,
And now I find myself in Austin almost every time I dream."
Track Name: Zipline
I want to take a zipline
Through my mind
(But) no one speaks our language
Down here
Where’s that number?
I need to call The Doctor

We wanna get draddled
And set fire to the beach
But the dolls are at the border
And the pilot’s getting screened
I need to call The Doctor
Where’s that number?

There are shooting stars
In Orion’s Belt
Swinging high from a chandelier
It would be such a waste
To be out in space
Without a doctor
What’s that number?
We need a zipline

Baby you are so fine
Caressing my mind
You see forever
You see through me

But there’s no contradiction
Between what I’m feeling
And what I’m seeing
In your eyes

There are shooting stars
In Orion’s Belt
Swinging high from a chandelier
It would be such a waste
To be out in space
Without a doctor
Without your number
w/out a zipline

w/out your number
w/out a zipline
Track Name: Windfall
I was thinkin
wishful thinkin
of a good luck charm
of a world turned my way

I’m just waitin on that windfall
from the secrets of the world I know
I’m just waitin on that wind to fall

I close my eyes
drivin’ dusty roads
sending clouds
into a clear big sky

with every mile another dream
distant sunlit scenery
every mile another dream

these are your darkest days
cubicle post-it haze
feeling for a ledge for a leap of faith

I’m just waitin on that windfall
from the secrets of the world I know
I’m just waitin on that wind to fall
Track Name: Sayulita
Back in Brooklyn under sleeping trees
And all these thoughts of Mexico
All my dreams they have more meaning here
Cause I’m all alone
With my sleeping trees

We flew into the stars
In you I found faith to let go
And in some other time and space
We’re never apart
We wake up stars

I was thinking about how we say good bye
Too few words to cover the truth
You know I will always get lost in your eyes
I want you to know
That I miss you
I want you to know

I know one day you’ll hear this song
Drawing lines that feel the same
We’ll still be riding an endless wave
To a little surfing town, my Sayulita

I was thinking about how we say good bye
Too few words to cover the truth
You know I will always get lost in your eyes
I want you to know
That I’ll always love you
I want you to know
Everything that’s true

everything that's true is you
everything that's true is inside you
Track Name: Always In The Sky
just a dj on a downtown A
sleepin it off to get up 1/2 awake for a dead-end gig in the Rockaways
he sees this girl transfer from the D
dreams in her head, kid asleep on the seat
she’s always on his train
and always in the sky

she can’t know the sky
she can’t see the sky
she can’t have the sky
because she’s always in the sky

he pictures her as Grace
spinning records into the empty space over the ocean
off the Rockaways
her beauty is her pain
the moon’s behind clouds; the sun don’t play
she just loses days
always in the sky

she can’t know the sky
she can’t see the sky
'cos she’s always in the sky
she can’t dream the sky
she can’t live the sky
she’s always in the sky

we’ve been (radiated)^2
and now we radiate
always in the sky

always in the sky
always in the sky
so perfect it makes you high
always in the sky
always in the sky
so perfect you never want to say good-bye
