Track Name: As the Moon Came Up
Spinning punk rock 45s and I could play that shit all night
We listened to Crimpshrine, Lookout’s best by far in my mind
The soul of music spins round and round
I feel the spirit rise up
it calls out to me using your voice so soft and sweetly

As the moon came up on new years night
I was struck by the reflection of the surrounding beauty in your eyes
as the tide went out it swept you away
I watch the stars all falling
the stars all fall on me

Side eyes cast a glance your way to see your mouth is moving faintly
You voice is escaping, to betray yourself to reveal a softer side of you
The soul of music spins round and round
I feel the spirit rise up
it calls out to me using your voice so soft and sweetly


As the moon came up on new years night
I was struck by the reflection of the surrounding beauty in your eyes
as the tide went out it swept you away
I watch the stars all fall
the stars all fall on me
And if tonight we finally look up
to see the falling sky come down
and in those broken pieces our truth will be found

And in those pieces our truth will be found…
Track Name: Outstretched Hands
Does time heal wounds or does time toughen skin?
Either way time is theft.
It steals perspective from the past
lending it to the future and providing comfort
for the soul that times of trouble will pass.

cowardice and forgiveness
look the same at a distance
Are you afraid to stand up to one’s shortcomings
or forgiving injustice. Are you afraid of knowing the difference?
Are you afraid you will make the wrong decision?

My hands outstretched in front of me
my fingers grip the dirt to continue the forward path
my feet sink deep into the earth
they root me on the heel of a well worn road
the present is a bridge between past and future lives
I am a bridge
I am a bridge
I lend the past to future decisions


WE CAN NOT GO BACK
we need a new path forward
Track Name: These Streets Are Mine
Gray night freeze and I’m ragged bones bare,
a sinking stone is what I call home.
Electric torch, a flickering light, save the power
as filament burns, turning night into day.

My ambition seems to drive off the empire,
I keep them at bay, by night these streets are mine.
Picking locks, diving dumpsters, breaking cages
I take what I need and leave the rest behind.

My mind is cold and clear I searching in the blackness,
a treasure seeker, I’m looming in the dark.
Across the street I can see with both eyes open
the red and blue but I am not afraid.

Well they say lady justice is blind
I don’t know, I don’t know
Maybe the blindfold is what keep corruption flowing
in the cold, in the cold…
