Track Name: Song From Earth
[Jupiter]

When I'm staring at the ground
I feel so tall
When I memorize all the words
I start to think I know it all
but when I look into the sky
I feel so small
I feel so small
I feel so small

There you can see Orion
and there's the North Star
There are names for all the others
I forget what they are
and there are way more that you can't see
cause they're just too far
just too far
and I feel so small

[Instumental featuring sounds from Miranda, Neptune, The rings of Saturn, The rings of Uranus, Uranus and Star KIC7671081B]

I am on the red eye
watching traffic crawl
we rise above the clouds
high above it all
and someone on the ground mistakes us
for a shooting star
that's how small we are
how small we are

Now the sun is burning down
and the flames fly tall
the stars are becoming
like leaves in the fall
and when we see the moon is bleeding
we feel so small
we feel so small
we feel so small

[Saturn}
Track Name: The Branch & the Vine
The branch and the vine
they must fight to be wine
they must fight to survive

the dirt all around looks like
dirt that you found on some
dry desert ground

You teach me my lessons and you're
keeping me guessing
til you got me confessing

I crack break and pour
my whole self on the floor til I'm
no one
no one but yours

the green growing vine
and the dead poisoned vine
they are tight
intertwined

you could cut you could tear
to the point of despair
you wont get
anywhere

the live and the dead
are so closely bound
they are so
hopelessly wound

and I crack break and pour
my whole self on the floor
and I'm
no one's
No one's but yours

I am like a bird that sees himself inside a window
and he flies into that window and the window does not move
(X2)

All my mirrors I will break them, I will break them all for you
cause until I break them all I see is me I can't see you
(X2
Track Name: Finally Found
The planning is all over
the church has emptied out
there's still some birdseed left
on the sidewalk where we ran out

we've celebrated our love
and said all we have to say
and we are finally together to stay

I'm done dropping you off
and saying "good night"
then returning to my lonely place
and turning off the lights

those days are over now
we're both in the same place
now we're finally together to stay

I'm all done
I don't have to search anymore
I've finally found
the one that I've been praying for
you're the one
the one that I've been praying for

when the color of our hair is overcast
from running under summer rain
and ravines and ditches have been
carved out by joy and pain

when the bottle of our years
has become fine, fine wine
I will toast to me becoming yours
and you becoming mine

I'm all done
I don't have to search anymore
I've finally found
the one that I've been praying for
you're the one
the one that I've been praying for
Track Name: We're Gonna Ride Our Bikes
It was a long, long winter
It lasted so, so long
It was a long, long winter
but for now, it is gone

(repeat)

So we don't care if it's raining outside
We're gonna ride our bikes
We don't care about the thunder and lightning
We're gonna ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes

We're not gonna keep buying gas
We're gonna ride our bikes
Traffic is backed up but we can pass
We're gonna ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes

It was a long long winter
It lasted soooo long
It was a long long winter
But for now, it is gone

(repeat)

We don't care about all the potholes
We're gonna ride our bikes
We're not gonna spend another minute indoors
We're gonna ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes

I say we get up before the sun
Put our shorts and our t shirts on
Take a ride out to the river
Make breakfast on a portable fryer

I wanna watch the sun fall from the dawn
And all the rays fall through those clouds
That's what I wanna do
On our bike ride

Then tonight we'll bike out to the park
Play ultimate frisbee til it's dark
Watch the fireflies put on a show
Then we're back on our bikes and off we go

Only twenty-five minutes to downtown
See if there's anything going on
oooooo
Doesn't that sound fun?

And we don't care if the cars get angry
We're gonna ride our bikes
They need to chill out and read the road laws
We get to ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Ride our bikes
Track Name: Slow Lane
I used to really want to be a big star on TV
well that did not work out obviously
I've made up my mind I'm not even going to try
if I'm not racing then you can't say you beat me

I'd just as soon stay in the slow lane
50 in a 65
gonna stay in the slow lane
it's enough to survive
gonna stay in the slow lane, slow lane
and enjoy my time

these days by 3 I'm feeling
so much lethargy I just want to
sit at home and watch tv
I see no silver lining
in winning second place
so I withdraw my name
in order to save face

I'd just as soon stay in the slow lane
50 in a 65
gonna stay in the slow lane
it's enough to survive
gonna stay in the slow lane, slow lane
and enjoy my time

Angels shall catch you
you won't strike your foot against a stone, no
Angels shall catch you
you won't strike your foot
against a stone

I don't care to state my views
there are too many sides
unproven manuscripts
and blind, blind guides

I have no opion
my own personal decree
is that everyone in the world must agree
that no one knows for sure
just like me, just like me, just like me, just like me

in the slow lane
50 in a 65
gonna stay in the slow lane
it's enough to survive
gonna stay in the slow lane, slow lane
and enjoy my time
