Track Name: STAND
Is anybody home? This queen would never be had. Is she lying there alone, cursing words that she said? Oh well. 'Cause I will not crawl anymore. We'll walk through the streets to a place we shouldn't go, while the people cuss and stare like we rose the unknown - oh no, no. 'Cause we will not crawl anymore. 'Cause I say no! 'Cause I will not crawl - so it's time we stand - so we will not crawl anymore. So rise from the floor, now its time that you stand. No your not going home, simply east we will head, oh yeah. 'Cause you will not crawl anymore. What lies in your eyes you will see in them all, from the west to the coast there is heart in the soul - oh yeah, yeah. 'Cause they will not crawl anymore. 'Cause I say no! 'Cause I will not crawl - so it's time we stand - so we will not crawl anymore. 'Cause I say no! 'Cause I will not crawl - so it's time we stand - so we will not crawl anymore. 'Cause I will not crawl - so we will not crawl anymore.
Track Name: MOTHER OF PEARL
Is there someone I’m supposed to be? Is there someone that's just like me? He said put it in a song, write it down. I know someone that belongs with me. And maybe one day she'll finally see that a good thing came along - will soon be gone. Oh, these wheels keep spinning round - my feet won’t leave the ground. Let it go. Oh Mother of Pearl can you tell me now, why the sand is made of tiny shells? Put there long ago from people we'd like to know. Oh, these wheels keep spinning round but my feet wont leave the ground. Now I'll go. And you should know that I stood with you, now you're not alone. And I know - yes I know that the time is here 'cause you’re not alone anymore. Oh mother pearl, oh mother of pearl. I’ll let it go.
Track Name: WALKING MAN
You might say that I'm a crazy man. Woah-oh, what if I am? You might say that I'm out of line. Look out now 'cause it's time to shine. Leaves are falling now, and time stands still. It's cold as hell outside, and the truth begins. But Lord only knows now, that I'm a walking man. So I'll have no money, but I'll still have pride for the roads I travel and the reasons why. I don't know how far I've come but on and on, so it's just begun. Leaves are falling now, and time stands still. It's cold as hell outside, and the truth begins. But Lord only knows now, that I'm a walking man. Now I'm a walking man.
Track Name: THE SWEET SOUND
It's four am; outside a storm is calling. I roll out of bed to see what's waking me now. The oceans breaks, I see a face from the window when the waves came crashing down. And there's a sweet sound that calls my name. Little darling, was it you? Just please explain. Closing time, now finish your drinks, it's last call. But I really don't need another drink anyway. I'll grab my coat, head to the door, and from outside I swear I can hear a voice calling my name. And there's a sweet sound, that calls my name. Little darling, was it you? Just please explain. Now there's a sweet sound, that calls my name. Am I dreaming? Is it time I find my way? So I'll find my way. I'm hearing the sound, the sweet sound, it's calling my name - oh the sound the sweet sound, I'm hearing it. Are you hearing it? I'm hearing the sound, the sweet sound, I'm hearing it. And there's a sweet sound that calls my name. Little darling, was it you? Just please explain. Now, there's a sweet sound that calls my name. Am I dreaming? Is it time I find my way? So I'll find my way. And it calls my name. So I'll find my way.
Track Name: HEAVEN OR HELL
We were born a hundred thousand million miles away. And our feet are blistered as we lie under the midnight sun. Through the night we reach the 'Top of the World' highway, so we're heading north. And we're so alive - this endless road will guide our way to a place unknown where we lie under the midnight sun. Don't stop now, this might be heaven or hell. Don't. Getting close now - and miles away from anything but the edge of the world. And we can't deny the beauty that lies within this land could change everything. As we lie under the midnight sun. Don't stop now, this might be heaven or hell. Just don't stop now, it's a long way down from here. This beauty and grace - many miles we have come just to see where the land would break. And some may call this hell, but I'll call it fate. Like a stone in this world we're a small speck unknown. This is great. Just don't stop now.
Track Name: LOST AT SEA
There's one thing that I can't explain. Your heart is buried beneath these waves again. You come up for air when I'm not at sea. Your voice is lost yet your eyes still scream for me. And now the fog's rolling in. This old heart's on my sleeve. You left with nothing, so I'll wait. Are you lost at sea? A generous man to lose his soul. I can tell by his skin some things I'll never know. If a wise man can lie, the rich man can steal. Then darling, maybe I'm just not meant for you. And now the fog's rolling in. This old heart's on my sleeve. You left with nothing. So I'll walk this shore, will these years pass by? And if this fog does clear, will I still be here? Will I wait? Just wait. Are you lost at sea? Are you lost at sea? Are you lost at sea?
Track Name: HOME (VANCOUVER)
Oh city of broken glass, have you been sold? The King of Cassiar will wave no more, he was getting old. The beauty you'll recognize when you're so far away. But I can see the moonlight shinning down on me, and there'll be times when it's strange to say: I call it home. The city, she spoke out loud, and told us to run. How time tends to slow down when you're not around where you're running from. The things you ignore now will find their ways. But I can see the moonlight shinning down on me, and there'll be times when it's strange to say: I call it home. I call it home. But I can see the moonlight shinning down on me, and there'll be times when it's strange to say: I call it home.
Track Name: OH LORD, HOW LONG
Bones will break, and life ain't easy. Will these long and lonely nights be ending soon? These hands they speak all the the promising lines. If you're here then I'll stay. No I won't look back. If I die by your door, I'll be singing out loud. Oh Lord, how long? Let me in! I've been waiting here for hours, I'll be careful what to say. And here's for the nights we fell in love. But I belong right here, and you should let me in. You call me crazy, 'cause I've walked so many miles in different shoes. So walk beside me. Oh this town hasn't changed, and I know that you're home. We'll be sipping on wine, if you care to show. Oh Lord, how long? Let me in! I've been waiting here for hours, I'll be careful what to say. And here's for the nights we fell in love. But I belong right here, and you should let me in. Oh Lord, how long? Let me in! I've been waiting here for hours, I'll be careful what to say. And here's for the nights we fell in love. But I belong right here, and you should let me in.
Track Name: SOMEWHERE, SOMEHOW
When the lights go down we'll storm out in the streets. We will roll like thunder, then pause so patiently. As the cars drive by with their simple minds of greed, I'll be waving. Oh this road is long, hell it's long, this is understood. And that little voice inside you that said you could. Now the lights go down in this town somewhere unknown. And are you sinking? 'Cause you know, woah-oh, I'll get by. Is it stronger than me? 'Cause you know, woah-oh, I'll get by. Is it stronger than me? Somewhere, somehow, so it's chilling to the bone. There'll be times, maybe days, when you never felt more alone. If the town strikes gold, does your fortune look the same? It gets you thinking. But t his crown I hold is the one I'd like to share. And I am living. 'Cause you know, woah-oh, I'll get by. Is it stronger than me? 'Cause you know, woah-oh, I'll get by. Is it stronger than me? 'Cause you know, woah-oh, I'll get by. Is it stronger than - stronger than me? Woah, now it's burning in my eyes. Woah, there's a storm that's on the rise. These guns are drawn and some of us might fall. But I will not fall. Tell my friends I'm coming home. Home. Now it's burning in my eyes. There's a storm that's on the rise. These guns are drawn and some of us might fall. But I will not fall. Tell my friends I'm coming home. Home.
Track Name: ABOUT US (DEC 19, 12:23AM)
You'd say I stole your fire. But I'd say you broke my heart. I'm on the last page, so I'll write it down. Thought I saw you today when I was driving around. And I know we have new lives. Do you ever stop and think about us? Just think about us. So I followed your car, just a couple miles. Yeah I followed your car, wasn't you at all. And my heart was racing and my hands grew weak. Yeah my heart was racing, oh silly me. And I know we have new lives. Do you ever stop and think about us? Just think about us. Just think about us.
