Track Name: Newbury Street
Well I didn’t see it coming-
I can remember when
The future was a timebomb,
The past was just the places I’d been.

It’s got me twist-and-turning
And spinning circles in my head
Before I look both ways
I’m a thousand steps ahead

Well it’s time to get up and go
Take this train so far away from home
I’ll see you again in a year
Are the words I never want to hear

It’s freezing and I’m frozen
I wonder if I’ve chosen right
Walking down on Newbury
At 7:35 at night

I’ve got a brand new conscience
And fancy college clothes
I’m majoring in ‘maybe’
With a minor who ‘who knows.’

Well it’s time to get up and go
Take this train so far away from home
I’ll see you again in a year
Are the words I never want to hear

I’ve got dreams, dreams to remember.
Track Name: Creekside Boogaloo Blues
I’m headin’ down to the river
To a place right by the sand
I’ve got a date with a melody
and a guitar in my hand, I said hey
What have I got to lose?
I’ve got six strings on this guitar and those
Creekside boogaloo blues

A summer day surrounds me
With a humid kind of heat
The bass it thumps to the guitar twang
and the snare drum sings the beat, I said hey, hey, hey
What have I got to lose?
I’ve got six strings on this guitar and those
Creekside boogaloo blues
Track Name: House of The Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's all a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one
Track Name: The Wind
What is the secret to happiness?
Am I really just star stuff?
Is there something that I missed?
Why do I never have enough?

Don’t rationalize
Don’t patronize
Don’t fantasize
Don’t pretend
Don’t depend
Don’t condescend
Don’t lose your cool
Don’t play the fool
Don’t be a tool
Don’t resist
You will persist
Just coexist



Life is amazing and it is blazing by-
Don’t let the wind decay
Let it blow right through, then you can start anew
‘Cause it’s okay.

How can I forgive and forget?
Why can’t I sleep at night?
Is there really something great I haven’t seen yet?
Will I ever really be alright?

Don’t analyze
Don’t disguise
Don’t compromise
Don’t ignore
Don’t abhor
Don’t think before
Don’t correct
Don’t deflect
Don’t interject
Don’t resist
You will persist
Just coexist

Life is amazing and it is blazing by-
Don’t let the wind decay
Let it blow right through, then you can start anew
You are okay.

Life is amazing and it is blazing by-
The wind won’t decay.
Let it blow right through, then you can start anew
‘Cause it’s okay.
Track Name: Idle In The Sea
We are all bits of water
Rushing down a stream
Rubbing against one another
Not knowing where we’ll be

But one day we will come to the end
Our obstacles and actions all complete
And when we rush around that final bend
We’ll all rest idle in the sea.

Meeting rocks and gravel all the way
Obstructions are a part of the stream
We rush on past a bit faster, as if to say
We don’t care where we’ll be

But one day we will come to the end
Our obstacles and actions all complete
And when we rush around that final bend
We’ll all rest idle in the sea.

But then the sky turns grey
And we all feel the rain
Companions from the clouds on their way
And now the sea is their contain

But one day we will come to the end
Our obstacles and actions all complete
And when we rush around that final bend
We’ll all rest idle in the sea.
Track Name: Mary
I dreamed a dream last night of a girl with raven hair.
She smiled and waved to me but all I did was stare.
The shadow of her figure was dancing in the light
As she appeared to walk upon the wings of night

Oh, Mary.
Oh, Mary.

She whispered in my ear but words were not produced
And as she looked at me, she cut my brain strings loose
I whipped around to see her, and touch her long dark hair
But as she waved to me, she laughed and turned to air

Oh, Mary.
Oh, Mary.
Track Name: Pale Blue Dot
Looking from a distance at a pale blue dot
A mote of dust suspended in a sun beam
Where every human being ever lived a life
Every thought, every feeling, every dream

Our imagined self-importance of a privileged position-
Our planet is a speck of light alone
Can’t you see that we must cherish the pale blue dot
The only home we’ve ever known.

Every king and peasant, every mother and father
Every hopeful child and couple in love
Every creator and destroyer and inventor and explorer
Every person you could ever think of

Our imagined self-importance of a privileged position-
Our planet is a speck of light alone
Can’t you see that we must cherish the pale blue dot
The only home we’ve ever known.

And all the rivers of blood from every general and emperor
Spilled to be the masters of a fraction of a dot
The endless cruelties we cause to each other
Over something that another has got

Our imagined self-importance of a privileged position-
Our planet is a speck of light alone
Can’t you see that we must cherish the pale blue dot
The only home we’ve ever known.
