Track Name: Gimme Five
My friends are waiting in the car
They probably wonder where we are
Right sock wrong shoe show your face
Gotta be ‘round here someplace
Time’s in short supply
Give me a minute, maybe gimme five
Pretty soon it won’t take too long
These days are here and gone
Looks like my bags are packed beneath my eyes
Found my keys in turn I lost another night
Toss and turn, a candle burnin’ at both ends
Worn down paper thin
And I guess I guessed it right
Man I’m blessed the mess is mine
Track Name: Bottomless Pit
Caught in the wind, burnin’ inside
Can’t comprehend but I can abide
Weak in the knees, all it took was a nudge
And now I’m fallin’ down the bottomless pit of your love

The sight of your face gets me through the day
A gentle embrace, a roll in the hay
I’ve already fallen, there ain’t no comin’ up
You see I’ve fallen down the bottomless pit of your love
And when I close my eyes your face is all I see
Guess I never realized how deep a well of love could be
The sound of your name puts my head in a whirl
And it’s livin’ the dream just to call you my girl
And a little bit more is never enough
Can’t you see I’ve fallen down the bottomless pit of your love
Uh-yes I’ve fallen down the bottomless pit of your love
Track Name: I Am On A Plane
Feelin stuck like a snowbound truck
I can’t keep the wheels from spinning out
Lord have mercy don’t you curse me
I Know what it’s all about
In the patchwork of a landscape undeveloped my men
Within an instant it becomes something
That it’s never ever been
Lost on vacation, another Sloop John B
Y’know it’s different from the last one
But that ain’t stoppin’ me, no
Lucky day, I am on a plane, I am on my way home at last
Above the ground, until we touch down
I’m not just high on life
There’s no solace in this town, no escaping the mundane
There’s no weather underground, I just gotta get away
This is where I draw the line, I can’t take it anymore
Can’t we put these qualms aside, can’t it just be like before
Track Name: Gusto
It’s a quarter to four, who could that be at the door
I don’t care no more, they can knock it to the ground
I’m going to sleep for a spell, bid you all farewell
Until when, you can never really tell
See, I’m workin’ up gusto for the night life
Storing all my stamina for a good time tonight
Enjoy your day, but don’t let me hear you say
I’m sleepin’ my life away, shut the windows draw the drapes
And turn that radio static on, always playin’ my favorite song
And kindly move along, we can catch up later on
After I get my rest and get myself all dressed
It’s anybody’s guess what lies ahead
Track Name: Jettison
I beg your pardon, there’s always something new to forgive
Learning lessons to assist us in the way we live
Always reaching trying to grasp that plateau
Restless breathing like there’s danger down below
That’s just how it goes, why nobody knows
Feel the warmth of promise slowly sinking in
Through all you’ve done and will do
Where you’ll go and where you’ve been
Always reaching trying to grasp that plateau
Restless breathing like there’s danger down below
That’s just how it goes, why nobody knows
Pushing envelopes no way to understate
Give it forward, jettison like a cannonball
Concealing all that you’ve picked up along the way
Track Name: She's Blowin' My Mind
It’s a lifted concept brought up from the deep
Beyond expiration but somehow it still keeps
Taken for granted, un-neglected, re-assigned
Till a purpose from out of the blue is brought to mind
Under the weather, All over the earth
Another conclusion, another birth
All over nature, under the law
Here lies perfection, there lies the flaw
Safety for children, women and men
Prospering pilgrims, a means to an end
Carving faces into stone, time erases favoring no one
Dying habits re-emerge anew, another statistic barrels through the roof
Disappointments sealed into a wall, unrelenting in its efforts not to fall
Over nature, under the law
Here lies perfection, there lies the flaw
Under the weather, all over the earth
Another conclusion, another birth
Track Name: An Other Birth
It’s a lifted concept brought up from the deep
Beyond expiration but somehow it still keeps
Taken for granted, un-neglected, re-assigned
Till a purpose from out of the blue is brought to mind
Under the weather, All over the earth
Another conclusion, another birth
All over nature, under the law
Here lies perfection, there lies the flaw
Safety for children, women and men
Prospering pilgrims, a means to an end
Carving faces into stone, time erases favoring no one
Dying habits re-emerge anew, another statistic barrels through the roof
Disappointments sealed into a wall, unrelenting in its efforts not to fall
Over nature, under the law
Here lies perfection, there lies the flaw
Under the weather, all over the earth
Another conclusion, another birth
Track Name: Going For Broke
You say there’s no relation, but you’re not fooling anyone
Known all about your flying arrangement
And how you’re setting off to race the sun
Getting up too early, it’s begun to wear you down
So much you’ve got in tow
They’re gonna catch you ridin’ dirty
As you barrel on, barrel on down the road
Going for broke
Trying to make yourself a name really did a number on ya
And scattered out your brain
You’re gonna drive yourself insane if you carry on any longer
Carryin’ all that weight
Going for broke
So get to bed early, all you need’s a lot of rest
Come tomorrow, you might find yourself refreshed
Don’t try to get even closer to the max
Time to move forward, no time for looking back
When it’s all in your periphery
that’s the moment you go blind
While you wait for your epiphany why don’t ya
Make up your mind
