"Rocket Ride"

if i could i would take a rocket ship and fly
to mars or some other destination in the sky
i just know that i'm meant to go
though it seems somehow i've been before
but my mind is foggy about those days
when i was a child and could dream in space
mom and dad don't seem to remember at all
about the trip i took when i was small
i want to get back and see again
the sights i must have seen back then
but no one knows except for me
about the rocket ship with the silver seats
and the lady who told me not to cry
we're just going on a rocket ride
though i am older no longer a child
yesterdays history still has to hide
but inside my heart will always stay
the dream of once again flying away

"The Lies That Make You Die"

You can’t believe
in what you see
misdirection spin
leads you where they want you to be

you can’t break free
and you won’t try
you miss the evidence
shining right in front of your eyes

while your busy hearing what you want to hear
singing someone else’s tune
the lies that make you die
are messing up the world for you

while the truth is knocking at your door
and you don’t want to know
the lies that make you die
will go ahead and make it so

they promise more
and you get less
those with way too much
will never have to pass the test

you smile a lot
like you don’t care
resigned to your fate
you’re not going anywhere

while your busy hearing what you want to hear
singing someone else’s tune
the lies that make you die
are messing up the world for you

while the truth is knocking at your door
and you don’t want to know
the lies that make you die
will go ahead and make it so

“This Might Be My Year To Go To Mars”

I don’t need a reason
like I needed one before
the earth I know is tired
from far too many wars
all the nervous humor
is getting tired and old
I can see it coming
and I don’t have to be told

this might be
yes this might be
as good a time
as there will ever be
I’d like to see
if I could go that far
this might be my year to go to mars

changes blur the seasons
from what they were before
the places I remember
are just pictures on the floor
I won’t try to deny it
the warm that should be cold
I can see it coming
and I don’t have to be told

this might be
yes this might be
as good a time
as there will ever be
I’d like to see
if I could go that far
this might be my year to go to mars

they ask me why
I say why not
there come’s a day
to fly away
from everything you’ve got

this might be
yes this might be
as good a time
as there will ever be
I’d like to see
if I could go that far
this might be my year to go to mars

"Empty Is My World (Without You)"

empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you
empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you

somewhere in the stars
way out there past mars
there's a beacon in the sky
and it's callin'
sends it's best to you
all it says is true
when the time is right
they'll be comin'

empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you
empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you

tell it to your soul
the part of you that knows
that the voices in the sky
have been callin'
something we don't know
in the distant shadow glows
we are in their sights
they've been watchin'

empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you
empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you

(bridge)
in the silence of the night
when they reach out
gonna feel it in your bones
getting closer every day
without a doubt
hope is movin' in
will we be foe or friend?

empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you
empty is my world...
empty is my world
empty is my world
without you

Btw...For those who may be curious...This was written as a take on what a friendly message from an extra-terrestrial intelligence might be if decoded...The friendly and rather lonely alien message...Empty is my world...without you...

"The Writer"

they seek peace
said the writer
to no one i could see
i am bound
to seek knowledge
no hero stuff for me

and i await the dream that the writer said
would come to my rescue
ships of silver
ships of light
with a semi-solid crew

and shine down to me from the stars
come the angels from space
bring me up to your world
leave a question in my place
take me over where you go
let me be there so i know
it's true
what the writer knew

they want love
said the writer
it is that they do not know
what we have
has been denied them
that's what made them go

and i await the dream that the writer said
would come to my rescue
ships of silver
ships of light
with a semi-solid crew

and shine down to me from the stars
come the angels from space
bring me up to your world
leave a question in my place
take me over where you go
let me be there so i know
it's true
what the writer knew

"What I Wanted"

and as i ride that train in my wanderlust
ain't got no plans running just on trust
i can find my way if i ever do
it don't matter if the story's true

now the end of the line is a fairytale
somewhere between heaven and a country jail
i will leave my past in a garbage bin
then change my mind dig it out again

oooh...what i wanted
didn't work out
so i headed down south
oooh...where i wanted to be
but no one down there ever wanted me

now the planes go up and they come back down
what goes around will finally come around
i won't hurry while i'm in the rush
tell you stories make your mama blush

oooh...what i wanted
didn't work out
so i headed down south
oooh...where i wanted to be
but no one down there ever wanted me

"The Final Fly"

The days are getting shorter
It’s a bitter dying light
As the final fly of summer
Takes a lonely winter flight
The things that once were lively
Are slowly finding death
The visitors are leaving
On the next train headed west
the coming days loom frigid
For the warmth forsaken soul
The closing theme is playing
In the lonely winter cold
Maybe some fine morning
Spring will come again
Till then darkness rules the winter
Goodbye to you my friend
