Track Name: Human Factor
Seems we’re all out of time
Never quite a chance to unwind
Fighting fire, fighting it with fire
Just might get burned

Seems the more that we earn
The more that we spend
The less we’re concerned
About anybody but ourselves
And you think we’d learn

Find yourself on that line
Time for analyzing your life
Got to asking what could
Make you whole

It’s not the things that you buy
The clothes that you wear
The car that you drive
Not anything that can be bought or sold

Must be out of your mind
To scale down the human factor
Say it’s to make time for personal betterment
Of your soul
And you sure must be blind
If you can’t see before you
The consequences when human nature
Is traded for gold
Track Name: Orion
Cosmic lover
Made up my mind
I’m not going home
This is where I’ll stay
With you
Long as you’ll be here
So will I
In our space
In our space

Orion is closer
Now than ever
Get to know the universe
Around us
I can feel your movement
When I see you
Every morning
Every moment
Every motion
Whenever we drift away
Track Name: Outside
Two girls are playing on a summer’s day
Hopscotch, marbles and fantasy
Sun’s dipping downward as evening falls
They play on but nobody’s calling them
Nobody’s home anyway
But what to do with a single mom
Who’s working all the time
Just to bring home something

Two boys have lost everyone they know
End up in a children’s home
Don’t understand how their folks could’ve
Left life and left them wanting
You heard what they say
We have no home anyway
But what to do when the state is handed
full control of children’s fate

Outside, the view’s alright
You know the grass is greener on the other side
And even if it were raining
Somebody would be saving me
Through the looking glass
Evergreen preview of another life
Now wouldn’t that be nice
If I could just trade my cards
In exchange for the one’s dealt me

Don’t have to suffer in silence
Or let your angst run astray
Culminating in violence
Blood starts to boil as fear takes hold
You have lost your way

Young man is waiting with his baby girl
Mother can’t be there to see her when
She’ll have her christening
Cuz noone’s listening
Union laborist daughter
She was sent home anyways
But what to do when the state doesn’t give a shit
About the lives its ending

Outside, the view’s alright
You know the grass is greener on the other side
And even if it were raining
Somebody would be saving me
Through the looking glass
Evergreen preview of another life
Now wouldn’t that be nice
If I could just trade my cards
In exchange for the one’s dealt me
Track Name: Rotation
Didn’t see it coming now
Or I would have run
Mood set on lying low
And down I go

Lay it all to rest today
With the setting sun
Put on the stereo
The lights down low

On the other side of joy
Seems you’ve been cornered
By captivity
And there’s no way of breaking free
You’re head is full of noise
That can’t be drowned out
By your radio
On the other side of joy
Track Name: Risky
A billion heads hung low
All in awe and all in sorrow
You marked the life we know
Hero among we mere mortals

On and on and on and on
You came, you died, and you’re in a better place now
And they tend to call it kingdom come

And we’re slowly falling
As you rise faster than the stars tonight
Will be alright
And now you’re moving
Faster than the speed of light

And we’re slowly falling
As you rise faster than the starts tonight
Will be alright
And now you’re free of space
And human time
Stars tonight will be your guide
To meet your maker
Beyond speed of light
Track Name: NIMBY
We’re always saying
Only not in my back yard
Then it’s be alright

Know we’d be slipping up
To claim it slipped our minds
Hidden from our sight

You know you’ve heard it all
a thousand times before
Couldn’t get no worse
But everybody always puts it to the test
Driving fate’s own hurse

It’ll get better – worse
We might get luck – cursed
Load will be lighter – hurse
Not in my back yard

And every morning when you wake up in your pain
Stand and face the mirror
You reassure yourself that we all act in vain
Give in to your fear

It’ll get better – worse
We might get luck – cursed
Load will be lighter – hurse
Not in my back yard
Track Name: River Town
I can’t hear you
For the rushing of the river bend
Tells a story
And you know that story has no end

Time she passes by
River steadfast in her place
Living monument to those
Who knew her grace

Human nature
Birth and death and love and war
All we’ve brought her then
Just ashes once we’re gone

Whispers to you
Living monument
Living monument
