Track Name: Perceive
Listen to the howling wind, feel the flow it spins, like the people surround you
Lighting the flame inside, feeling the warmth and light, inspire your mind

I don't know where you've been, I will not pretend, that I know you
I don't know what you see, when you look straight at me and perceive
Don't fall through the cracks

Hearing the warm spring breeze, whisper through the trees, like the people in town do
Taking it all in stride, can't say I never tried, to open your eyes.
Track Name: Cascadian Pride
Sitting and thinking on the mountain side
Feeling the breeze and that Cascadian Pride
Seeing the lights from the city glow
On the edge of space, with no boundaries to know

Rolling waves made of mountains and trees
Do I go alone, will you come with me

Surfing and floating on the coastal tide
Feeling the pull of the moon on my mind
Hiking and thinking on the forest edge
The ocean starts, right over that ledge

Three sisters look up, laying the lava in it's bed
The rivers run deep from the glaciers melting head
Track Name: Back to the Cabin
Head out to the mountains leave your everyday behind
Hike to sunsets melting with visions undefined
The peaks provide reflections of a summer alpenglow

Share the common spaces with the grateful to un-wind
Chat with brand new faces old friends you will remind
Darkness brings a palace from the suns of other worlds

And we go back to the cabin

Heat that iron skillet throw a new log on the fire
Pick that six string thinking before we all retire
The storm will bring fresh powder, the morning sun will glow

Wax up all the bases and dry out all the gear
Tomorrow brings fine chances for grinning ear to ear
There's time to search your soul
And let the roof-alanches roll

And we go back to the cabin
Track Name: Mt. Hood Sweetness
After the rain when the sun beats down
It returns all the water to the sky
The smells so sweet and their is no doubt
That I can taste all the land on my mind
It takes me home

After the snow when the sun shines down
We have a blue-bird day in this mountain town
It shines so bright and there is no doubt
Crystal blankets of powder are yours if your around
It takes me home

Mt. Hood Sweetness is coming over me
Making me high and happy like I wanna be

Before I go and I leave this town
I give thanks to the mountain for all the peace I found
I'll cry no tears cause there is no doubt
I 'll return to be blessed by this sacred ground
It takes me home

Mt. Hood Sweetness is coming over me
Making me high and happy like I wanna be
It takes me home
Track Name: 7 Years
This road and all these signs they look familiar
I think that I've been down this road before
I guess as long as I am the one recording
My eyes will filter days on the same score

The golden sun is setting on the day now
The feathers of my mind fly to the moon
Anyone can guess which year is turning
Measured by our lives while we are learning

And I am seven years of living away
From the knowledge that I need today
Won't you step right up and give me that advise then step away

Experience will be the final preacher
Feel your path but listen to the teacher
This life can bring us down so small and fragile
The moment make us tall and strong for battle

Still I am seven years of living away
From the wisdom that I need today
Won't you fly right up and give me that advise then fly away
Track Name: The Body that's Your's
Growing up young and mind in a body having fun
Learning each other sharing is a balance often one
Living the dream standing on the earth before the sun

Hello challenge we gotta spend a whole life holding hands
Pushing and pulling we only have a tiny place to stand
The body tells you but you don't always understand

Here in this body taking my head for a tour
Me and my head tasking my body with chores
The body relates to the mind all the pain it endures
The mind smiles and cheers while is laughs at the body that's yours

Growing up old a mind in a body share the fold
To balance each other father time has cast a mold
The body stumbles but the mind it grows more bold

Hello challenge now it's time to have some fun
The body weakens youth was wasted on the young
You hold the flame and your far from being done

Here in this body taking my head for a tour
Me and my head tasking this body with chores
The body relates to the mind all the pain it endures
The mind smiles and cheers while it laughs at the body that's yours
Track Name: Trueing Stand
My song and sleep they share a dream
They both allow my soul to gleam
When I am awake my true intentions take

So much time to pass my mind
So much time for me to find
Thoughts they leave me far behind

And I think about the times that might have been
If I acted on my feelings and I didn't think again
I put my life up on a truing stand
Clear my head of thoughts live as a free man

Think about the things that you could be
Put down all the fear use the heart to see
I put my life up on a truing stand
Clear my head of thoughts live as a free man
Track Name: Into the Future
Why should I feel forsaken there was no lie
You told me yourself that this would happen
You did try, to save me from where I was mistaken

Now we walk into the future with the presence from the past
It guides the way and tells the stories
Of the battles we fought and walked away

This is the deal your thoughts will miss-direct you
You'r here to feel the pain it will correct you
Push through your wall and once your re-directed
Answer the call you have been selected
