about

Sometimes you get hit hard in life. You can take the time to mourn or feel down, but somehow you've got to find the strength to get back up. That's what Time is all about.

Track Name: Quiets Me
Everyone is looking for it
Do they even know its name
Perhaps shiny even broken
No one but themselves to blame

Here comes the feelings it plays in the head
Over and over though nothing is said
The mind never stops showing movies for free
It comes to a halt when he quiets me

Stand in line to buy your sunshine
Clouds and rain they come for free
All the baggage what you don't want
Leave it all in aisle 3

Here comes the feeling it plays in the head
Over and over though nothing is said
The mind never stops showing movies for free
It comes to a halt when he quiets me

Quiets Me
Quiets Me
Track Name: Time
Time to turn this thing around
Hard to see from upside down
Thinking this might be ok
Checking out life in a different way

Now's the time to
Open wide to
Faith that life's ok
Screw the bumps
And all this junk
I see the light of day

And here I stay in mystery bay
Knowing my dreams won't float away
Waiting on you who's waiting on me
To pull this anchor up
No more sleep I'm going to lose
Now's the time I need to choose
I will do this with you

Time to turn this thing around
Calm inside without a sound
Thinking this might be ok
Open the doors with what I do and say

Now's the time to
Open wide to
Faith that life's ok
Screw the bumps
And all this junk
I see the light of day
Track Name: I Trust In You
This too will pass
The night won't last
Pull cord
Drop curtain
No more
But what remains
The heart contains
Define your world
I trust in you

And I can't protect you from the things I wish I could
I know you're gonna have to learn it from you
But I'll be here for the growing up and the confusion
That I know you're gonna be going through

Take it away
Your part to play
Lights are shining down
You own the world
Costumes and stage
Voice no longer caged
Lift it up
Spread your wings
And soar

And I can't protect you from the things I wish I could
I know you're gonna have to learn it from you
But I'll be here for the growing up and the confusion
That I know you're gonna be going through

This too will pass
The night won't last
Pull cord
Drop curtain
No more

But what remains
The heart contains
Define your world
I trust in you
Track Name: Satori
Space
Breathe
The note
Sound
Escape
My throat
Know
That I am

And it's all up to me
I allow me to see
What I'm looking for
Search no more
I open up my own door

Take in
The dawn
As we
Are drawn
Be that
I am

And it's all up to me
I allow me to see
What I'm looking for
Search no more
I open up my own door

Satori
The glory
Inside
The flower
It's hour
No pride
Satori
The story
I find
Reflection
Inception
Reside

And it's all up to me
I allow me to see
What I'm looking for
Search no more
I open up my own door
Track Name: Deep Breath
Deep Breath baby doll
Ache so you may breathe
Take seven giant steps
And end on a leap of faith
After tears the vision comes
The green pied piper leads you
And you follow to the fields of green

Sun pierces through shades in the hollow
Water cleanses what was already clean
Wake to your own out coming
No more a helpless babe
Sigh and exhaust what memories try to refrain

Carry you to a place
Where you become your own
Stronger than you’ll ever know
Battle the storms that surge inside
Eyes wide open and love is there to guide a journey home
Crushing blows that crash the soul
Damn what you never should have known

Sun pierces through shades in the hollow
Water cleanses what was already clean
Wake to your own out coming
No more a helpless babe
Sigh and exhaust what memories try to refrain
Can peace flow through the roots to reach the stream of truth?
And wash away the decay of soiled earth
And what remains is the beauty of you, your essence
Of the here and now

Given grace to breathe deep baby doll
Given grace to breathe deep baby doll
Given grace to breathe deep baby doll
Given grace to breathe deep baby doll
Given grace to breathe deep baby doll
Given grace to breathe deep baby doll
Track Name: Unique
Here we are in this insane world
Pass the butter would you please
Listen to the stranger talking
He knows everyone with ease

You would like to be a part of
What he seems to know by now
Then before you know you're talking
He cracks a smile and lifts his brow

And before your eyes you realize
That it's ok to seek
Outside of that comfort zone
To find how you're unique

First you start to feel uncertain
Words come out
Do others stare
Quick response another comment
Touch of warmth acceptance here

You would like to be a part of
What he seems to know by now
Then before you know you're talking
He cracks a smile and lifts his brow

And before your eyes you realize
That it's ok to seek
Outside of that comfort zone
To find how you're unique

And before your eyes you realize
That it's ok to seek
Outside of that comfort zone
To find how you're unique
Track Name: Days Like These
Holding tight as blood
Seeps from my nails
Daddy told me there’d be days like these
When higher powers quench their thirst
On sour wine that’s at its worst
Their good intentions go south on a chilly breeze

So to lose the grip
And begin to fall
No longer caring
To make sense of it all
The hero who came to save the day
Took a wrong turn along the way

The needy crying of a babe never ends
Who’s left to turn to
When the willpower bends
There’s a need for a warm embrace
Are the angels on stand by from saving grace

Standing beside myself
No room to turn
The flame is smothered
And the light no longer burns
And just to be
And just to see
Who is it to be me
When I am truly free

And how I wish the passion would subside
So it would be easy
To get of this stinking ride
Rip it up and throw it away
Take all those pennies saved for a rainy day

And just be
And just see
Who is it to be me
When I am totally free
And just be
And just see
Who is it to be me
When I am totally free
Track Name: Bells
A calming hour
In a crowded room
A brush with that which makes us sane
Fingers work magic on strings and wood
Tension of the day no longer remains

And the only part we live right now is music
The heartbeat quickens now that the ride is underway
Come join me in that place where all the pieces fit
Where destiny has had its say

Moving focus
it’s all within our reach
Giving taking
We learn and then we teach
Striving for balance
We hold all the cards
Leave time in the wind
We’ll give our formal regards

And until the next time when fingers feel their way
We’ll pass through the motions
Of living from day-to-day

So now it’s getting darker and the day is moving on
How can we stay within this spell
Life is filled with ups and downs
This moment will pass on
The sounding of the bells
Ring clear ‘til we meet again . . .
Track Name: The Cape
Come on girls
We're hitting the road today
The time has come
For us to get away

And we're having ourselves quite a time
Laughing crying
Drinking wine
Be who we are
Without a care

So don't tell me you need a plan
Think of yourself
I know you can
Let that little girl run wild today
Go out and play

Come on girls
We're heading for the Cape
On our way
Making our great escape
And though we love what's left behind
We're oh so happy with what we find
Living loving
Our friendships today

So don't tell me you need a plan
Think of yourself I know you can
Let that little girl run wild today
Go out and play

Running on the dunes
Singing the tunes
Fire is ablaze
Laughing in the haze
We know how blessed we are

So don't tell me you need a plan
Think of yourself I know you can
Let that little girl run wild today
Go out and play
Go out and play
Go out and play
Track Name: Unwind
Here she comes through the door
Her heart is dragging behind her again
It waits to be held
To strum all of her demons away
She will play and won't let go
As the music flows through her veins

Here's where the laughter comes
Or the tears may fall
No telling what they'll find
But when they live the sounds
The guitar is hers and they are mine
And in that space she knows what's real
And can leave it all behind
And when they blend as one
No past or future to unwind

The one who came through the door
Has picked her heart up once again
They hear the music
Long after the last note has played
A sound to hold onto to
Will get them through the darkest day

Here's where the laughter comes
Or the tears may fall
No telling what they'll find
But when they live the sounds
The guitar is hers and they are mine
And in that space she knows what's real
And can leave it all behind
And when they blend as one
No past or future to unwind
Track Name: Hierarchy Spin
So now you pray for it
To smother up and go away
Forgive the sins
In that magic black box
The temple's full
And sparks are gonna fly again
This time we'll see what he'll do
To make his message clear
To ring true everywhere

Pass over that religious trap
Listen to the words of a humble man
And with the glitter
There should be no gold
But the light that shines from his face
Will take its hold
Do unto others as they to you
So what's the part that makes it hard to follow through
Back to basics it's time to go
The hierarchy needs a new spin on its show

So face the crowds
And tell them what you think they want to hear
Then face the crowds
And tell the truth
The saints are gone
It's just us mortal souls to carry on
Send love on high and take it home

Pass over that religious trap
Listen to the words of a humble man
And with the glitter
There should be no gold
But the light that shines from his face
Will take its hold
Do unto others as they to you
So what's the part that makes it hard to follow through
Back to basics it's time to go

The hierarchy needs a new spin on its show
The hierarchy needs a new spin on its show
