Track Name: The Trans-Slambovian BiPolar Express
I had a dream last night and it held me in it's arms
i rode a train of light and it kept me safe from harm, it whispered
"Oh, my love, oh my child, oh my dream,
I will give you the light if you just give me the means
on the Trans-Slambovian BiPolar Express..."

And then that train rolled on into the fears I know too well
To where my demons fly, yeah it rode right into hell
And then that light shone out and that whistle blew
And that great voice cried out, “Hey I’ve come for you!”
Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express
We’re on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

Some great love shot right through me,
Untangled all those fears
It acted like it always knew me, It said,
“Oh my child I’m always here”

And then I awoke into this world that we live in
It all seemed a joke, and its logic wearing thin, So I said,
“Hey come back, let’s make it end and let’s begin
And if you help me out I will help you in”
On the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

We’re on a Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express
Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express
We’re on a Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express
Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express
Track Name: Very Happy Now
I’m very happy now
I don’t know what has made it so
I’m very happy now
And while I am I think I’ll go

I wish the best for you
I wish the same for who you choose
I know you’re not for me
Was easier for you to see
That’s right!

I’m very happy now
I’m finally free of trying to try
To make our love work out
For making truth out of a lie

I know you’re not for me
Was easier for you to see
Was blinded by the hope
I thought I saw you saw in me
That’s right!

Dig a dum dum da da
Dum da dum da da

Dig a dum dum da da
Dum da dum da da
Dum da dum da da
da da da

I’m very happy now
I haven’t felt this way in years
I’m very happy now
This moment’s just not right for tears

So if you see me cry
It’s kinda like the rain you see
There really is no why
There’s not a bit of pain in me
Oh no! Let’s go!

Dig a dum dum da da

Track Name: Lost Highway
Woke up this morning, hit the high water mark
of being tired of living in the fog and in the dark
I didn’t go to work, I couldn’t handle the jive
I gotta find better reasons for staying alive
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo

Gonna gas up the Caddy, gonna hit the high road
I’m gonna get outta’ town ‘for my conscience explodes
I’m gonna find the lost highway,
I know it’s out there somewhere
And get back to the garden on two fins and a prayer
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo

Gonna drive back to Eden, gonna straighten things out
Gonna find out what causes all the fear and the doubt
I’m gonna visit that angel with the big flaming sword
Pay the price of admission and then go see the Lord
Aahooooo
Aahooooo

Tell him that I’m sorry I’m the one to blame
and I’ll put it right, yeah I’ll put it right
Get us off the grid and get us reconnected to the love and the light
Love and the light
Aahooooo

Yeah I’ll be your Adam if you’ll be my Eve
We’ll erase all the pages that caused God’s heart to grieve
We’ll forgive that serpent, it was us took the bite
And rewrite the story about how we get it right

Jump in the Caddy drive up to the stars
Go and find out what Spring is like on Jupiter and Mars
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo

On the lost highway
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo
Aahooooo

Track Name: The Invisible
Well I’m so happy you are here with me
Yeah I’m so happy you are here with me
Whenever I feel afraid I close my eyes and pray
And I enter the invisible with you

Well once upon a time we were alone
Even in our minds we were alone
Then we faced all our fears, we drowned in our own tears
And we entered the invisible again

This world’s a lonely place
We made it such a lonely place
This world’s a lonely place
We made it such a lonely place
It’s not the only place
there is just one and only place that’s true
And it’s here with you

This world’s a lonely place
We made it such a lonely place
This world’s a lonely place
We made it such a lonely place
It’s not the only place
there is just one and only place that’s true
Yeah it’s here with you

I’m so happy you are here with me
Yeah I’m so happy you are here with me
Whenever I feel afraid, I close my eyes and pray
And I enter the invisible with you
Yes, I enter the invisible with you
I just enter the invisible with you

Track Name: Who Is This Girl
So many layers and concept conveyers
And players who say things I don't understand
Walls and illusions and so much confusion
Emotions and oceans that drowned all my plans

And who is this girl, I don't know right now,
But I love her, I love her, I love her I do
Yeah who is this girl, I don't know right now,
But I'm thinking of her in all that I do

Our heads always bouncing, our hearts always pouncing
Protecting, attacking what we don't reveal
But we are connected past walls we've erected
And armies that keep out the things that we feel

And who is this girl, I don't know right now
But I love her, I love her, I love her I do
Yeah who is this girl, I don't know right now
But I'm thinking of her in all that I do

Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah
Yeah

Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah

Someday we'll find it, 'cause love will remind it
To let down defenses and breathe in the air
And we will remember a kind of September
That's filled with the things of which we really care

And who is this girl, I don't know right now
But I love her I love her I love her I do
Yeah who is this girl, I don't know right now
But I'm thinking of her I think that she's you

Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah
Yeah

Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah...
Track Name: All the Dead Little People
All the dead little people
Do they go upstairs
If they did their best
If they said their prayers

And when they go
Can they see us
Do they even care
Help to guide our way
Keep us from despair

They're floating along to a spooky song
In the moonlight, it's okay
But so much is wrong and we know it's wrong
Can we change it today
Okay
Okay

Floating along to a spooky song
In the moonlight, it's okay
But so much is wrong and we know it's wrong
Can we change it today
Okay
Okay

All the dead little people
Can I make it plain
Though we’re all quite strange
One thing’s still the same

We need love, until we find it
Everything’s in pain
‘Til we get that right
Things get so deranged

And we’re floating along to a spooky song
In the moonlight, it's okay
But so much is wrong and we know it's wrong
And we can we change it today
It’s okay
It’s okay

All the dead little people
Do they go upstairs
If they did their best
If they said their prayers?
Track Name: Windmills
When I was young I called your name
Across the moors, across the plains
And we would sit and have some tea

We talked of things we hoped to see
To keep our newborn country free
From things that hold the dreamers down

We spoke of windmills in the night
Against the black and starry sky
And all the people skated by
La la la

The weight of greed came crashing down
Affecting all in every town
It somehow was our price to pay

The criminals were given bail
While all the victims went to jail
Was this the way to shift the power

We dreamed of windmills in the night
Against the black and starry sky
And all the people skated by

Religions terrorized the world
The biggest countries let unfurl
Their sneaky ways to take control

The ‘isms of another time
That never let a natural rhyme
Or reason guide us to those dreams

I dreamed of windmills in the night
Against the black and starry sky
And all the people skated by into another world

The coldest winter on the land
Our newborn country had a plan
To make these worries float away

We built some windmills in the night
Against the dark and hopeless sky
As we the people skated by
Into a brand new world of light
Track Name: Up Above My Head
Oh I’ve seen a million patterns that I don’t understand
A million visions for the child of man
Up above my head
In dreams you’re always seeing things just out of control
You want to fly upon the wings of your soul
Up above my head

And I’ve seen the wind-tail lashes, lighting flashes, morning changing its hue
For you
‘Cause up where the birds are flying, clouds are crying, everything becomes new
For you

And I’ve seen the red-tailed lashes, finger flashes, people fading from view
For you
‘Cause up where the birds are flying, clouds are crying, everything becomes new
For you

Oh I’ve seen a million patterns that I can’t understand
A million visions for the child of man
Up above my head Up above my head
Up above my head Up above my head
Track Name: Ravenous Ways
When we were small, heard the call of warmth and love
We saw that face in our sky way up above
Yeah we had such ravenous ways for everything
And when we opened our mouths we all could sing

So turn on your ravenous ways
Turn on your ravenous ways
Join the show

Fan your all-consuming flames
Fan your all-consuming flames
Help them grow

Yeah we’re gonna aim for the sky, we don’t aim low
And when we let this thing fly, the world will know

We’ve turned on our ravenous ways
Turned on our ravenous ways (That’s right)

Yeah we had such ravenous ways for everything
And when we opened our mouths we all could sing

So turn on your ravenous ways
Turn on your ravenous ways
Turn on your ravenous ways
Join the show

Fan your all-consuming flames
Fan your all-consuming flames
Help them grow

Yeah we’re gonna aim for the sky, we don’t aim low
And when we let this thing fly, the world will know

We’ve turned on our ravenous ways
We’ve turned on our ravenous ways
We’ve turned on our ravenous ways
We’ve turned on our ravenous ways
(That’s right)

When we were small, heard the call of warmth and love
Track Name: Northern Sea
I sailed away from the northern shoreline
Out to the Northern Sea
I sailed away to a world before time t'see what I should be

Do you think about me my m'lady?
Do you think about me?
Do you think about me my m'lady?
Do you think about me?

I sailed away on the lonely ocean
Just the wind and me
I sailed away 'til I had the notion
You and I should be

If you think about me m'lady
’Cause I think about you yes I do
and I dream about you m'lady
Do you dream about me

Spirit of God moved across the water
Back when the will was free
Said to that sea "don't ya think we ought
be all we can be?"

If you'll think about me m'lady
I will think about you yes I will
and I will dream about you m'lady
if you dream about me

And they danced all night and their heat brought light
and the light brought day and the day brought sight
and the things they saw made them say alright
and all things were born on that wondrous night.

When I return I will be a new man new as a man can be
When I return can I be your true man if you'll think about me
If you think about me m'lady ’cause I think about you yes I do
and I dream about you m'lady do you dream about me

If you think about me m'lady ’cause I think about you yes I do
and I dream about you m'lady do you dream about me
Do you think about me my m'lady?
Do you think about me?
