Track Name: Return of the Star Man
If you called to me, from the edges of the Galaxy
I would be there for you, flying madly by the stars and moon

If you called to me, from the edge of some insanity
I would go mad for you, if it's what you needed me to do

At the return of the Star Man, through the sky
Lightning stretches from his eye
Down to his chin
He'll come again

If you called to me, from the bottom of the Bering Sea
I would sink down to you, cause you know that you are dear to me

If you called to me, crying blindly for infinity
I would not hold you back, if you said that this is where it's at


Track Name: Shark Bay
Look through the window at sea lions playing,
By the bay where the cold wind blows

All the blue in the sky turns to gray, and
Wind it whispers of dangers below
Track Name: Violet Blue
Violet Blue
I've been dreaming of you,
crushing my suitcase under your tire

It's often true
the things that you do,
should make you unworthy of my love
Saint Violet Blue

Each time I turn
you're always there
to cut me down and kill my high

even when you're gone
mama I'm well aware
without me you never really go anywhere

Violet Blue
something within you
inspires my soul to wither and die

If not for you
Saint Violet Blue
I'd be a stable man but I just
can't leave you

If you need me, treat me sweetly
Take me out, around town

If you love me, don't stand above me
I'll lift you up if you don't drag me down


Track Name: TV In My Mind
I've been staring at the TV in my mind
Just reacting to everything that passes by

But I don't want to live that way
Ain't there, something I can say

To release me from the TV
Running in my mind
I was hoping for a friend
To hear my thoughts

And say something to relate
Or turn them off

But you don't want to bear that cross
Or maybe, just don't care that much

If it's easy, you keep the TV
Running in your mind
I've been told it's a fact of the times
You grow old, set your mind and become unkind

But I don't want to die that way, ain't there
Something I can say

To free me from the TV
Running in my mind
Track Name: Out of the Blue
It's no secret to me
You don't need chemicals to see
That nothing's really lost
Or found

There's no up and no down
Only round and round
And slowly floating closer
To the Sun


Life is short when you are young
Piece of paper on your tongue
And nothing's really missing
Or undone
Track Name: Over the Sphere
If you need me, you've got to try and keep me

And if you love me, you've got to be part of me

We can live forever, if we stick together

We can live forever, babe, if we stick together

Together babe... together babe
Track Name: Across the Void
Track Name: Into the Light

It's gotten to my brain
It's rotting in my brain
and it's gotten too numb
To hear my thoughts

I thought it was over
I thought it was over
But now I can see
The light in front of me

The light in front of me
The light in front of me
But I can't describe
What it does to see
The light in front of me
