1. REASON TO BELIEVE

I guess I was a fool
Some would say naive
I should have taken good advice
But I wanted to believe

I grasped for something new
A ripe forbidden fruit
Was tempted by the thrill of the chase
And crushed in my pursuit

So read between the lines
Unmask the masquerade
Try to solve the cryptic code
The games that people play

Reason to believe, reason to believe
Give me a reason to believe

I offer you these words
When you pursue your dream
Sometimes the wish that is fulfilled
Is not quite what it seems

So read between the lines
It's just a masquerade
Try to solve the cryptic code
The games that people play

Reason to believe, reason to believe
Give me a reason to believe.


2. WARM TEARS

I was told when I left you It would take two years
But already it's closer to three
You say that the damage is massive to you
Now you're throwing the guilt back at me

Bathed in your warm tears
Your warm tears
Time is a healer
It cleanses all things

If our love it was meant to be
Your heart on the pillow
Head in the clouds
Losing touch with reality

Bathed in your warm tears
Your warm tears
Locked in your warm embrace
I felt your fire
But now I can't replace
This lost desire.


3. MAN WITH NO NAME

I come from nowhere
I'm here to enlist you
Someone with no fear
Who cannot resist you

I'm an observer
A witness to wonder
My love's eternal
Just like rolling thunder

I'm a free spirit
And not who you think
Will not confirm
I'm out of sync

I got no secrets
I got nothing to hide
I'm on a journey from darkness to light
Mysterious stranger, please tell us your game

You're promising love to the world
But you're only a brief burning flame
You're a man with no name

I come from nowhere
I'm here to enlist you
I'm someone with no fear
Who cannot resist you

I'm an observer
A witness to wonder
My love is eternal
Just like rolling thunder.


4. CAN’T GO IT ALONE

I know you suffer
But I don't want to see you run and hide away this time
Reignite the light within your heart
Won't let it be denied no more

You can't go it alone, on your own
It takes strength to carry on
When it cuts to the bone, I will come
And I'll carry you away

You can't go it alone, on your own
It takes two to pull on a wishbone
And make your dreams come true
And the rest will follow through

Reconcile yourself,
Exorcise the demons within your heart this time
Turn around and you will find me waiting
When all around has gone.


5. GIVE IT UP

I've got love in my heart for you
And I've done what you wanted me to
Burned all my old love letters
Hoping you would love me better

But if it's gonna go on this way
We just might call it a day
And give it up
You used my past as a lame excuse

And you threw it in my face
Pushed my pride to the limit
How much more can a poor boy take
But if you're gonna keep bringing me down

You can save your love for another clown
And give it up tonight
I'm giving up on loving you
So listen to me baby
I know what I'm talking about
If you live your life in the present tense

My love you wouldn't need to doubt
But if it's gonna go on this way
We just gotta call it a day
And give it up tonight

Giving up on loving you...


6. SEARCHING FOR SATELLITES

Fellow travelers you seekers of truth
Faithful followers and friends from my youth
We've seen our star rise, felt the warmth of the sun
In our time under the skies I feel we are one

What is the message that we get from above?
There's only one answer and that answer is love
The answer is love

Searching for satellites and celestial spheres
Nurturing acolytes down through the years
Songs of redemption,
Songs of regret

These words worth repeating; forgive and forget
What is the message that we get from above
There's only one answer and that answer is love
Look at us working as we tally the score

What is the answer?
The answer is more
The answer is more - love

What is the message that we get from above
There's only one answer and the answer is love
Send me that message from high above
There's only one answer and that answer


7. HEAVY WEATHER

Scattered storms from Reno to L.A.
The city of canyons, hot as hell all day
Tornadoes in the alley, turbulent air
Event horizon, we're not even sure we care

Trouble is brewing, I feel it all around
People all over on shaky ground
Discontent out on the streets
Tempers flaring in the dust and heat

Fruits of love
Yours and mine
Would see brighter days
In another time

What bought us here
And has come to pass heavy weather
Surely cannot last
Dark clouds, flood waters rising
We don't change, hardly surprising
I might sigh and you may frown
But we can see it's all coming down.


8. MUD-SLICK

(Intrumental)


9. BIG ISSUES

Slept like the dead last night
Pavement for my head last night
Voices in my head
I'm hungry for my bread

Big issues, big issues
Took my grievance to the wire today
Politician was a liar today
Gonna get what I desire
Think I'll start a fire

Big issues, big issues
Curbstone for my head
I'm hungry for my bread

Big issues, big issues
Brother, let's get through this
Well we'll live, laugh, and cry
You gotta get right down to it
You can't just lay down and let hope die

We are gonna do our best here
To be all that we can
But let's make one thing clear now
You gotta get real and find a new plan.


10. MIGRANT WORKER

Migrant worker, working overseas
You got a dream but it's bringing you to your knees
In a cheap hotel, at the whim of a man
Living in limbo far away in a foreign land

Migrant worker, living in a foreign land
You're disconnected, moving on shifting sands
You got a family, with their basic needs
We got society that's bringing us to our knees

Bringing pressure, pressure to bear
So much pressure going nowhere
You got a family, but you're over seas
So many problems bringing you to your knees
Your disconnected, at the whim of a man
Living in limbo, moving on shifting sands.


11. INVISIBLE THREAD

People tell me there's an invisible thread
But I let it play out and the feeling's dead
We are all bathed in the light of the divine
You are forever with me on that line

And I wanna know, if you're truly free
Time will tell, you know so well
What you mean to me
We had no chance to say goodbye

I left you for darkening skies
I let my head rule my heart
And now we find ourselves apart
But I wanna know, who you're talking to

Time will tell, you know so well
What you mean to me.
Good advice is hard to come by
I know you been around town to try

Your so called friends opened their doors
Their curiosity piqued for sure
I wanna know if I'm truly free
Time will tell, you know so well
What you mean to me.
