Track Name: Eat Me
We are the people from the woods
We are the people from the sea
We are the people from the clouds in the sky
Drink it up until the well runs dry

We are the people from the ape
We are the people from the fish
We are the people from the birds and the bees
So cut me up and serve me on a dish

Eat Me!

We are the water in the ground
You are the leaves that still turn brown
We are the apple and the snake in the tree
You are the woman next to me

Eat Me!
Track Name: Pistols
Thank you father for this song!
You're inspiration can't be wrong.
I believe your words are true
But your actions left you misconstrued.

You cannot hide,
these feelings deep inside.
But your words collide,
with the last thing you implied.

You mean more to me than me and the things we talk about.
But where the hell is everyone when I've the need for reaching out?

Prove to me that you are strong.
Tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Tell me that you'll make it through
and your faith has been renewed.

Follow in my footsteps.
Learn from my mistakes.
Anything you learn yourself,
are chances that you take!

Pistols help me figure out
Reasons why my life's in doubt
Pistols help me figure out
People that I care about
Pistols help me figure out
A way to hear my silent shout
Pistols help me figure out
...nothing when it rings out loud
Track Name: Broken Limb
Same 'o rusty taste and rusty color from the bottle
I'm just gonna sit here and get high a while
...and lie to myself about the way it should be,
never knowing who to turn to in the end

OH! but you took me by surprise, yeah
And I feel like I am flying in circles
Dancing in the air
Dancing in the air

Like a broken limb on a tree
You were always that part of me
Through the times of weakness we grew apart
From the things that make us who we are
But in the light of being we will find
Our salvation in running wild
Track Name: Let Me Be
Same 'o rusty taste and rusty color from the bottle
I'm just gonna sit here and get high a while
...and lie to myself about the way it should be,
never knowing who to turn to in the end

OH! but you took me by surprise, yeah
And I feel like I am flying in circles
Dancing in the air
Dancing in the air

Like a broken limb on a tree
You were always that part of me
Through the times of weakness we grew apart
From the things that make us who we are
But in the light of being we will find
Our salvation in running wild
Track Name: Stay Strong
You're always testing the waters
making sure the coast is clear
Stepping into the ages ahead
to warn me of things to fear

"to protect you from yourself", you said
...those stupid things I've done.
If I'd only learned to listen more
after all, I am your son

Most definitely a stubborn one
and selfish, none-the-less.
But you should always know I try my best
to be polite and courteous

I walk around with my head hung high,
I've you to thank for this
and when things got out of line at home
you gave me time to confess

You never told Dad about that time
I felt the need to cry
when that evil little girl down the street
tore up that heart of mine

You understood that pain much more
than I ever could have guessed
for the advice you gave me on that day,
"Stay strong, and pray for the best"
Track Name: Tidal Waves
I have traveled
Many miles
Patterned by the wind
Pain sinks deeply
Many fathoms
I sail toward my freedom
I sail toward my freedom

Freedom cost me more than I need but I saved my family.
What do I see coming my way? Rescue me from tidal waves!
German captain saved my ass then brought me to the Philippines.
*Purple mountain majesties and amber waves of grain
...don't you know
...that I long to be there
Track Name: Earth to Mother Earth
Jason Champion - Vocals, Guitars, Drums, Percussion, Keyboards
Brad Beaudry - Bass
Christopher Davis - Lead Guitar
Track Name: Pseudoscience
Wanting my second sight to fade away
Gemini in the sky could separate
All the lies about the skies have been uncovered
And yet we try to religionize each other
Still we label our gods as we see fit
And we hold on to the claims of a prophet
Won't you tell me my lucky number
What do my palms have to offer?

Pseudoscience makes no difference in my life of consequences
Pseudoscience makes no difference in my life without religion

Religion does nothing but to foster hate
Who does your preacher wish to exonerate?
The answers you feed on are written in ink
so you kneel by your bed, beg and plead for forgiveness
And you vote for the people of your faith
Cause you believe that they'll do everything that they say
Of course you can exercise your right to believe
but the preacher can't exorcize YOUR demons and fiends

Pseudoscience makes no difference in my life of consequences
Pseudoscience makes no difference in my life of independance
Pseudoscience makes no difference in my life of indecision
Pseudoscience makes no difference in my life without religion

Pseudoscience
Pseudoscience
Pseudoscience
Pseudoscience
Track Name: Reasons
I know my reasons for running away
were very necessary, contrary, to the emphasis I'd placed.
But I filled my reasons with many complaints
and then I wonder why I'm still around to hear myself think.
My motivation is slipping away
to a time stand-still, nothing's real, and things never change.
I know my reasons for running away;
yet I wonder why, I wonder why, the time was in vain.

I'll miss you
I'll miss me
But there's someone else that I should be.
For the time
For the peace
For a chance to wipe it clean.

Passing distractions with a suitcase in my hand...
to fill the void, on open road, for emptier man.
The land I travel keeps eroding away
like infinity, inside of me, I'm turning to clay

I am dying, frozen here in time
I'd be lying, telling you I'm fine
I am trying, following behind
Yet I'm finding, it's harder as we try
Track Name: I Feel You
All those times we had
casting stones
I feel so bad
and so alone
but I can recall
all the better days
in our time together
when you led the way.
I wish I'd had the chance to tell you that I loved you
before you passed away,
before you left me here,
and so cold I stare
at your stone
and I long to be
next to your bones.

I miss you
I feel you
I feel a shadow on the grave
I miss you
I feel you

I just don't know if I can do this anymore
I'm an empty shell
in an empty world
cold and barren,
stripped and bare,
cleansed of all that could have been.
I can't let go.
I won't let go.
I'm just not ready.

Their shallow hearts
lack the soul.
They'll never fill
the void I feel
to be much more
than only half
of what is now
all that remains
and so cold I stand
at your stone
my reflection on the blade.
I won't hesitate.


Will you take my hand,
when I reach for you?
Will you lead me to your promised land?
Will you take me in?
Will I find the way?
I need to be with you forever in a day.
just one day...
