Track Name: The Science of Release
I say so long to all my faults
as I lie here all alone
I pray that this silence
will befriend my thought
Past attractions and those to come;
the moments we endured with heavy hearts
are all up debating the nature of right and wrong

It’s got me clingin to the edge of my seat—
so before I go to sleep
I think about what my momma whispered to me

Just let it go, oh child it’s time to release

It’s summertime, but snow is fallin
In winter the sun shines all day long
Spring is here again—
but it looks more like fall
The mythology of our past is gone
The tales the leaders tell are all
one hundred thousand body bags tall

So when the world's as cold as could be
and control lies beyond your reach
Do what can be done and then let it be

Let it go, oh child it’s time to release
Track Name: Where We're Going
Where we’re going the song I’m singing keeps going
til we’ve found love
Where we’re going clouded vistas turn golden
their tears become love
And all of them changes remind us to face it
the time has come

Where we’re going our children fall asleep knowin
that they are not alone
And that our spirit keeps growin,
like a tree we keep reachin
to heed freedom’s call
And nothin’s all that important,
yet underneath each moment
we can find God
And so we find out that when we slow down
we know who we are

Where we’re going the simple things become tokens
of where we come from
And where we’re going once again cause we know that
the day will surely come
When we find what we’ve been looking for all the
time we’ve been lost

But what’s the cost of all this silliness?
Do it this way— no, it goes like this—
The things we trade just to be right

Where we’re going mouths are fed when they open
the streets are no one’s home
Where we’re going rules are made to be broken anytime they don’t
have our best interest in mind

What I find to be reality
is less concrete and more a dream
with all the playfulness of a child
So if I fall asleep before we meet
promise me just this one thing:
you’ll remind me where I was going
where I’m going
Track Name: The Golden Cage
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray to the lord my dreams to keep
Wish upon a start so bright

I wish that I would, I hope that I might

Let me out
Let me out of this gold colored cage
Let me out
Let me out before I suffocate

Surfing electronic waves
Pretty little thing in my bed with me
Chocolate caramel pecan delight

I can’t find mine, can I bum a light?
I’m alone in the finest cage my time can buy

Let me out
Let me out of this gold colored cage
Let me out
Let me out before I suffocate
Let me out
Let me out of this diamond lined maze
Let me out
Let me out before I go insane

The sun’s almost down, another day gone
The tide’s creepin in to take what must go
The flowers all know it’s time to bloom

Spring is here now but a cold winter looms All the leaves on the trees will be silent soon
Are you waitin on me or am I waitin on you?

Let me out
Let me out of this gold colored cage
Let me out
Let me out before I suffocate
Let me out
Let me out of this million mile maze
Let me out
Let me out before I go insane
Let me out
Let me out
Track Name: It's Alright
It’s Alright

I said I was lost, somehow blown off course
Far from home without a guiding star
But still it’s alright

I was broke down, so damn confused
Painter of landscapes without a view
But still it’s alright

Then in came the rain, night swallowed the day
Noah’s Ark wouldn’t have helped a thing
But still it’s alright

Then out came the sun, like a heaven-white dove
That sang a song that needed to be sung
She said it’s alright

It’s alright
It’s alright, alright

I was a witness when craziness opened a business
And set up shop on my front lawn
But still it’s alright

Then I trailed behind me, selling itself at a loss
From Philadelphia clear to California
But still it’s alright

I tried to eat or sleep or fuck away
My tendency to let loneliness lay with me
All day and night

I was consumed by a two-dimensional view
Of how I was perceived through the eyes
Of you—and you—and you

But it’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright, alright

I closed my eyes, envisioning what would be
If we transmuted fear into belief
And it was alright

I had visions of Gandhi and Martin Luther King
I finally understood what Jesus was saying
He said, “It’s alright.”

Then all the tortured, bruised and battered souls
Appeared in the clouds as if to let me know
They were alright

Saying in spite of confusion, I in spite of the pain
Our dearly beloved have gathered here today to sing
“It’s alright!”

It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright, alright

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
It’s alright, alright, alright
Alright
