Song 79 03:50
Song 79 (©2004 Anders/O'Bitz) I don't write Of love, not from me I don't write Of beauty, what's to see I don't write Of gentleness around I don't write Of pleasure that I found I long to write of home far away But I have no home Y'know I feel exiled anyway From what, I don't know I don't write Of favors from some friend I don't write Of riches I could spend I don't write Of honor, none around I don't write Of virtues to be found I long to write of home far away But I have no home Y'know I feel exiled anyway From what, I don't know Got to write Until I'm done 'Cause y'know it's a type of fate If I don't write I'd flail for some time Then y'know I would break … I would break

Icarus 04:12
Icarus (©2004 Anders/Mitchell) I search the lowlands For my great escape I can't find her I make my wings To fly above this place So I can reach her I'm flyin' here And I climb up so very high away I'm sure she's there High above where I was all those days So many trials I was hardly chaste Guilty of it An oceanic feeling Set my taste I can't forget it I'm flyin' here And I climb up to the place she stays I'm sure she's there High above where I was all those days And I want Until I'm burned by the sun And I want But my wings melt away Tumblin' through A blue chaos that brings Visions of others Left behind So I could make my wings Hard to recover I'm fallin' here Tangled up inside my wax and string Oh was she there? High above the high of my wings And I want Until I'm burned by the sun And I want But my wings melt away And I want Like I'm the only one And I want And then I fall away Battered and bruised I look for some care I can't find it I made my wings To fly above their fare They won't forget it

Settlin' Comes (©2003 Anders/Mitchell) If you know the answer to This question all around Why that feelin' so seldom comes Why it's so hard found A feel for settlin' comes Oh in time Ah before settlin' comes I feel for a ride And if I say to you And look you in the eye Sure this feelin's bound to come That is, before this dies And could you look right back at me Say it's not a lie Could you see me as the settlin' kind Not too much to hide A feel for settlin' comes Oh in time Ah before settlin' comes I feel for a ride Why does settlin' make me sigh Make me want to lie Feel for a ride And could you say this warning Won't make you want to fly And do you think you could settle for A "please let us try" A feel for settlin' comes Oh I hope in time Oh I hope this settlin' comes I'm tired of this ride A feel for settlin' comes Oh I hope in time That is before that settlin' comes The kind when we die

Together Alone (©2004 Anders/O'Bitz) Is this all? Is that what you said? Again we fall As we lie in this bed So content you're mine What did you say? "You know we're really alone Don't you get it? We're together alone Fears of love just tear me apart" I know you're sad Let me take it away "Yes I'm sad That I feel this way And seeing my hopes fade You know we're really alone You just don't get it We're together alone Fears of love just tear us apart" Apart, tears us apart, tears us apart We're together alone, alone Can't hear what you say Please hear what I say: No we're not really alone I won't "get it" We're not "together alone" Fears of love can't keep us apart No we're not really alone I won't "get it" We're not "together alone" Fears of love won't keep us apart We're apart, keep us apart What did you say? Can you hear me, we're alone I'm not afraid, I'm afraid Can you hear me? "What did you say?" We're not together alone

More Regrets 03:45
More Regrets (©2003 Anders/O'Bitz) You and I We believed our plannin' You and I There'd be no more phoney lovin' But You and I Our separate places hidin' Then You and I We knew somethin' else was comin' I said it's over and there're no regrets But I said so much That couldn't stand the test I wish you'd try to remember the best But I see I've blown it now … More regrets More regrets Got more and more regrets You and I Just had one tremblin' foot in You and I We're terrified from all our lovin' You and I We watched the other hurtin' Then You and I We knew somethin' else was comin' I said it's over and there're no regrets But I said so much That couldn't stand the test I wish you'd try to remember the best But I see I've blown it now … More regrets I wish I knew then How much love and fear within And how paired they had been … and we had been I said it's over and there're no regrets But I said so much That couldn't stand the test I wish you'd try to remember the best But I see I've blown it now … More regrets I said it's over and there're no regrets But I said so much That couldn't stand the test I wish you'd try to remember the best But it's not over now … Nor the regrets More regrets More regrets Got more and more regrets More regrets

Practiced Isolation (©2003 Anders/O'Bitz) Greasy hair No shower for you today Listen to me leave a worried message On your machine You hold cold coffee And you stir No joy on the scene What was your quiet rage Is not just quiet resignation There's no seeing you today You fight alone You fight alone with yourself All your meditation's just practiced isolation You fight alone You fight alone with yourself So I'm left here today … without you D'you know I care You should know I do … it's true Can't you hear it when you listen to My apologies You pull the covers over you I'm more worried than I seem What's been my quiet pain Is now very vocal desperation You're not seeing me today You fight alone You fight alone with yourself All your meditation's just practiced isolation You fight alone You fight alone with yourself So I'm left here today … without you

Through A Fog Darkly (©2004 Anders/Mitchell) Walkin' out in a fog Can hardly see the ground And I was telling you something and Then I notice that you're not around Do I hear you callin' me in the fog? I yell "come 'round" But no answer, only fog And an empty sound Hello, do I hear you callin' Communication's been breakin' down I need to hear you callin', ah I need you around Hello, do you hear me callin' I hear echoes and that empty sound I hope you hear me callin' But fear … fear you won't come 'round I fear you won't come around I try to find my way home But I'm lost I've found After discovering this I find It's me who can't come 'round Through a fog darkly I see and I call I'm beggin' you now But no answer's heard at all Only echoes sound Hello, do I hear you callin' Communication's been breakin' down I need to hear you callin', ah I need you around Hello, do you hear me callin' I hear echoes and that empty sound I hope you hear me callin' But fear … fear you won't come 'round. I fear we won't come around. Come 'round, come 'round …

You Lied 04:07
You Lied (©2003 Anders/O'Bitz) A recent climax of confessions And now the silent denouement It seems any answers I come up with Will leave me suspicious Of you, our past, and even more myself The more I gave The more you lied No I won't give it another try All this time You say we are fine Now I can only say … you lied You knew all the lines Perfect to make a fool of me And yet some lines Not meant for me, not me The more I gave The more you lied No I won't give it another try All this time You say we are fine Now I can only say … Oh god you'll be on a lonely path If you don't ever face the ghosts of your past What kind of role did your write for yourself In this play of yours Living with me and so much time with him too Could you ever be honest and close? It seems no The more I gave The more you lied I won't give it another try All this time You say we are fine Now I can only say The more I gave The more you lied No I won't give it another try All this time You say we are fine Now I can only say … you lied And all this time … you lied And all this time I've taken on this all before And you lied I say it one more time, you lied

Remembering On My Own (©2003 Anders/O'Bitz) Here in these photographs Lovers who have gone The near and far of the past I'm still bettin' on the con … Of waiting for that someone to come along Who'll lighten all my loads and sing my song I just can't believe it's been this long Tears from these photographs Cut me to the bone Haunted by what couldn't last I remember on my own Waiting for that someone to come along Who'll lighten all my loads and sing my song I just can't believe it takes so long … so long No tears and no photographs What's gone is simply gone And though we can't leave the past Can't I get beyond? Waiting for that someone to come along Who'll lighten all my loads and sing my song I just can't believe it's been so long No, I can't believe it's been so long Cannot find the way to make me whole Cannot find that someone for so long Feeling like my waiting was wrong Can't find the way to get back home Can't find the way to get back home I'm left here waiting now they're gone I'm left remembering on my own On my own …

Unhappy Like Ulysses (©2004 Anders/Watkins/West) Unhappy Ulysses Captive Separated by seas Think about a love For me My Circes keep me warm As I try and try to sleep As I toss and turn Where's Penelope? Is there really one And does she think to weave? … to weave? To sail Then Siren's call Tied up But loose enough to fall Think about some home That's all My Circes keep me warm As I try and try to sleep As I toss and turn Where's Penelope? Is there really one And does she think to weave? Is there really one And does she think to weave? Since my Circes keep me warm Why should she weave? I'd love to find my home some day But maybe I'll be here to stay … to stay. Unhappy Ulysses Captive Separated by seas Think about a love We'll see My Circes keep me warm As I try and try to sleep As I toss and turn Where's Penelope? Is there really one And does she think to weave? My Circes keep me warm As I try and try to sleep As I toss and turn Where's Penelope? Is there really one And does she think to weave? This island is my home away … from home But am I here to stay At this palace in a glade?

Starless Night (©2003 Anders/Watkins) And I … Always wondered what you held inside And I never wanted to see me with your eyes Afraid of such a sight … such a sight And I … Tried to trust the guide of your light But I'm not one to venture out at night Darkness gives me such a fright It's late Why do I look to you To help to me console? Too late Trust is gone in you Out of your control This night Loneliest of nights No stars in the sky On such a night And I … Don't want to be around when you ask why And I don't want to see the tears build in your eyes My reasons can't be right … they can't be right And I … Can't even hear the sounds of my goodbyes And I cannot feel my feet as they walk by Our heads hang low tonight It's late Why do I look to you To help to me console? Too late Trust is gone in you Out of your control This night Loneliest of nights No stars in the sky On such a night It's late on this night, lonely night And there're no stars in the sky No stars tonight On such a night
