Track Name: Summer Rain
LYRICS
---------

Walking by the ocean
There upon the Strand
I heard the pitter patter
Of raindrops on the sand

I ran to find some shelter
'Neath the safety of a pier
And as the storm subsided
I turned to find you here.

Suddenly came that Summer Rain
To melt my heart away
Now the ribbons in your hair
Will tie the knot this coming May

You curtsy, then I follow
As we lay down by the sea
The ocean gulls are all a-flutter
Trying to sing us both to sleep

Your eyes were on the ocean
But you soon made eyes at me
The smile that promised your devotion
Made a captive heart of me

Suddenly came that Summer Rain
To melt my heart away
Now the ribbons in your hair
Will tie the knot this coming May

Perhaps a bit of kismet
Blessed are the powers that be
In that ever magic moment
That captured you and me
And when the rain comes down
The roses start to bloom
Walking on and skipping stones
While the clouds bid us adieu

Oh, I love that Summer Rain
That brought my heart to you
There is no shooting star
That ever fell so far
The way that I just fell for you
Yes, I love that Summer Rain
That brought my heart to you
There is no shooting star
That ever fell so far
The way that I just fell for you
(fade out)
Track Name: We Do What We Do
LYRICS
---------

June is within me
Yet June is without
So what do I do
So what do I do

Capture the moment
Or withdraw from the fight
I do what I do
I do what I do

There are times... when I think I should have left here
Took... to the road all alone
Erased... the tracks my feet left here in the dirt
And never look back
And never look back

A leaf in the Springtime
A blossom in Summer
They do what they do
They do what they do

In Autumn they die
To be carried away in the wind...
It do what it do...

There are times... I never should have left there
Took... to the road all alone
Erased... the tracks my feet left there in the dirt
And never look back
And never look back

[instrumental – almost same as chorus]

Winter provides
The snow and the cold
It do what it do
It do what it do

Along comes the Spring
Then June is there waiting for me...
She do what she do...

There are times.... when I gently kiss her
It seems to me... the seasons move to fast
I know... someday June will up and leave me
And never look back
And never look back

We do what we do
We do what we do
We do what we do
We do what we do
We do what we do
Track Name: Twenty-Two
Twenty-Two
dfl - 13 Dec 2009

Twenty-two
We don't know each other well
But I've seen you in the hallway
As I check my mail
And I wonder if you're busy Friday night?
We could get to know each other, if that's alright
We could have some coffee, enjoy a talk, and then we'll say goodnight
I'll slip down the hallway to my room, go to bed, turn out the light
In the morning when I get the paper I will smile at you
And I'll say, "Good morning, number twenty-two!"
And you will smile at me
And you'll say, "Good morning, number twenty-three!"
Track Name: Angels and Demons
Angels & Demons
dfl - 07 Feb 2010
=============
Left!
Left!
Left! Right! Left!
Left!
Left!
Left! Right! Left!

Angel on my shoulder!
(Angel on my shoulder!)
Demon on the other!
(Demon on the other!)
Ain't no one to catch me
(Ain't no one to catch me)
In case I fall
(In case I fall)

Angel on my shoulder!
(Angel on my shoulder!)
Demon on the other!
(Demon on the other!)
Ain't no one to catch me
(Ain't no one to catch me)
In case I fall
(In case I fall)

The Bible tells me, boy you shall not kill!
(But I've been doin' a lot of killin' still!)
Sometimes even angels have to take up swords!
(To stem the tide of the demon hordes!)

Left!
Left!
Left! Right! Left!
Left!
Left!
Left! Right! Left!

An angel and a demon
(An angel and a demon!)
Are warring on my shoulders!
(Are warring on my shoulders!)
The soldier in the middle...
(The soldier in the middle...)
Their battlefield.
(Their battlefield)

Company! HALT!
Track Name: Primordial Soup (traditional recipe)
PRIMORDIAL SOUP
=============

From wherever we have come
We may never know the truth
Of what has taken place
In a billion years

(Of what has taken place - in a billion years)

There must be some recipe
To explain the mind of Man
And not some accident
Born from fallen rain

(Not some accident - born from fallen rain)

Separate the Chaos
Into Day and Night
Where once was only darkness
Add a cup of morning light

(Where there's darkness - add some morning light)

Raise a firmament above
The dry land now below
Call it Heaven

(Call it Heaven)

Raise a firmament above
The dry land now below
Call it Heaven

(Call it Heaven)

Gather waters of the deep
Fill the cauldron, let it steep
Stir it 'round and 'round
Watch the world go 'round

(Stir it 'round and 'round - watch the world go 'round)

Light a spark within the broth
Mull it gently, give it Breath
Let it grow --

Let it grow -

[choral voices repeat on fade out]

Track Name: Yesterday Hero / Someday
LYRICS
======
YESTERDAY HERO
==============

These dusty old comic books
Reflect bitter faces and disgusted looks
But they're stacked away now
Forgotten along with a hero of yesterday now.

A red, white and blue suit
No longer flies the skies of America
To rescue the day when we need him most
Oh, when we need him most!
Oh, when we need him most!

An American hero-yeah
Fighting for the American way
A true patriot died just yesterday
Killed by a people he saved just yesterday!
Killed by a people he saved just yesterday!

Who needs him now?
[news reports.]
Who needs him now?
[more news reports]
Who needs him now?
[more news reports]

With just a single hand
He'd make this place a safer land
The world could use a super man!
Oh, my Yesterday Hero....!
Help us if you can!

An American hero-yeah
Fighting for the American way
A true patriot died just yesterday
Killed by a people he saved --
Killed by a people he saved --
Killed by a people he saved just yesterday!

SOMEDAY
=======

There's a new day dawning
There's a light now shining through
Where last night's discarded shadows
Have all but vanished in the Blue

It's high time we made a fresh start
We've spent too long, feelin' our way around in the dark
Heroes gotta get reborn some how....
Some way... Some day...

[instrumental]

Someday we will wake - to find that life is breezy
Someday we will learn - that harmony is easy
Someday we'll beat our swords back into ploughs
Someday could be then...
Someday could be now...

Someday... we will learn that we're all brothers!
Someday... we will learn to love each other!
Someday we will find - Peace of mind!

Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Why not now?)
Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Why not now?)
Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Why not now?)
Someday (Someday!)
Someday (Why not now?)
Someday (Why not now?)
Someday (Why not now?)
Someday (Why not now?)
Why not now?! (Why not now?!)

[sung under the rest]
We will sing a song of inspiration
We will sing together as one nation
Track Name: Little House on the Sea
LYRICS
----------

I want a little house on the Sea of Tranquility
A little lunar bungalow
And maybe you can hop on over and come and visit me
It's easy 'cause the gravity is low.

We'll have a view of the oceans
They look so blue beneath the clouds
Concerning you I've got a notion
That you and I will be all right
Floating in the moonlight
Reflecting on our little house on the Sea
Of Tranquility

We'll play canasta with the Armstrongs and the Aldrins
And we'll never lose a trick
Then we'll have brandy in the back yard near the crater
And watch the Earth out on the deck

A bright blue ball caught in a spiral
We'll see the Fall as the flashbulbs light the lands
We'll watch as all our cradles there are melted
But you and I will be all right
Floating in the moonlight
Reflecting on our little house on the Sea
Of Tranquility
