Track Name: Snowflakes and Rocket Ships
Snowflakes and rocket ships, there’s,
No place we cannot fix, if we try,
Let’s unzip the sky,

Bad karma and big mistakes they,
All can just be erased, if we try,
Let’s unzip the sky,

And let’s beautify that sparkle in your eye,
Yes let’s beautify that sparkle in your eye,

True love and modest happiness,
All can just be addressed, if we try,
Let’s unzip the sky,

And let’s beautify that sparkle in your eye,
Yes let’s beautify that sparkle in your eye,

See all those people who are lost, you know,
Give them some time, don’t count the cost, you know,

Snowflakes and rocket ships, there’s,
No place we cannot fix, if we try,
Let’s unzip the sky,

And let’s beautify that sparkle in your eye,
Yes let’s beautify that sparkle in your eye,
Track Name: Circus Parade
Come every day and you will see everything here,
Fighters and lovers and people who can’t shed a tear,

Come every day and you will see nothing of note,
Except bullies and victims and raging carousers and ghosts,

For this is the circus of life, come join the parade,

Come every day and you will see sadness and hope,
Clowns and deceivers, all high on the wire tightrope,

For this is the circus of life, come join the parade,

Come every day and you will see nothing to fear, my dear,
Except lonely and heartless,
We’re all on this carousel here,

For this is the circus of life, come join the parade,
Track Name: All this Precious Time
And I hope to see you later today,
We’re so full of things we never did say,
Cornflower blue has the world gone askew,
When it falls like the rain?

And I can’t quite believe,
Where all this precious time has gone,

And I hope to see you whether or not,
We’re so full of dreams that mean such a lot,
Pippin apple green has the world never seen,
All those dreams? Are they gone?

And I can’t quite believe,
Where all this precious time has gone,
Track Name: Come and Paint the Town
Come and paint the town with me,
It’s all so dirty grey,
Come and paint the town with me,
And I’ll be yours today,

It doesn’t have to be colourless and,
It doesn’t have to be blue,
It doesn’t have to be rainbows falling from the sky,
Just me and you,

Come and paint the town with me,
It’s all so dirty grey,
Come and paint the town with me,
And I’ll be yours today,

It doesn’t have to be emptiness and,
It doesn’t have to be blue,
It doesn’t have to be starbursts falling from the sky,
Just me and you,

It doesn’t have to be meaningless and,
It doesn’t have to be blue,
It doesn’t have to be angels falling from the sky,
Just me and you,

Come and paint the town with me,
It’s all so dirty grey,
Come and paint the town with me,
And I’ll be yours today,
Track Name: Amazing Graciousness
Amazing grace it often comes to me,
Whenever you’re so kind to let me see,

We struggle with our demons this it true,
But there is no one else for me but you,

And I don’t get the meaning of despair,
Compassion is the best thing that we share,

Amazing graciousness is what you are,
So don’t forget to thank your lucky star,

And I don’t get the meaning of despair,
Compassion is the best thing that we share,
Track Name: Listen to Those Words
Why don’t you listen to those words?
They’re the only thing you’ve got to make you heard,
They’re the only thing right now that seems absurd,
Here comes your dream,
And it’s falling apart at the seams,

Why don’t you listen to your heart?
It’s the only thing you know sets you apart,
It’s the only thing you’ve got to make a start,
Where is your heart? It’s banging around in the dark,

Here we are now waiting for your,
Here we are now waiting for your dream...

Why don’t you listen to those words?
They’re the only thing you’ve got to make you heard,
They’re the only thing right now that seems absurd,
Here comes your dream,
And it’s falling apart at the seams,
Track Name: Don’t hold onto the Rain
Cut yourself a little bit of rope,
Tie it round your finger for some hope,

Don’t hold onto the rain that you can’t change,
It’s all so strange,

Cut yourself a little bit of slack,
Clocks are moving forward never back,

Don’t hold onto the rain that you can’t change,
It’s all so strange,
Track Name: Come the Winter
Come the winter,
We fall like the leaves,
And we take all those thoughts,
And we bury the seeds,
Of our hopes and our dreams,
And the golden thread that sows the seams,
Of our dreams,

Come the winter,
We fall like the rain,
And we steal all the hearts,
In the wardrobe the same,
As our hopes and our dreams,
And the falling stardust that sprinkles the themes,
Of our dreams,

Come the winter,
We drift like the snow,
Display all those feelings,
A frozen old show of,
Our hopes and our dreams,
And the black ice it freezes the veins of our hopes,
And dreams...
Track Name: The Desert and the Rain
Once upon a time you had everything that anyone could need,
Fresh flowers in the attic hallway, all the air that anyone could breath,

But now it’s only desert with no rain,
But now it’s only desert with no rain,

Once upon a time there was an elevator right up to the sky,
Waves that broke upon the shoreline, never any time to wonder why,

But now it’s only desert with no rain,
But now it’s only desert with no rain,
Track Name: Lullaby for the 21st Century
Here is a lullaby, plain little song,
Wishing the world could all get along,

Here is a conflict zone and here is a drought,
And here is a racist I can’t figure out,

Here is a xenophobe and here is a priest,
And here is the truth and it’s lost all its teeth,

Here is the ignorance and here is the news,
And here is a narcissist lying to you,

Here is a lullaby, stupid little song,
Wishing the world could all get along,
